Sharon Kleyne & Expert Colleagues Teach Breathing Exercises

Daily Breathing Exercises Improve Health Says Kleyne. Kleyne Says Most People Don’t Know How To Breathe To Stay Healthy.

What does it mean to you to breathe correctly? Is there any such thing? Not many people really think about these questions. They breathe more or less unconsciously because that’s the way they have always done it. After all, breathing is natural, right? Well, yes and no. Breathing is natural, yes, but it is also a great gift from nature. Earth’s atmosphere is rich with life-giving moisture, which we need to breathe in if we want to live and have a healthy life. But all breathing is not equal.

This is what Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, wants everyone around the world to understand. As she teaches proper breathing techniques, Kleyne draws for support on the beneficial practices of Tai Chi and Qigong Grandmasters Steven Aung, M.D. and Dr. Effie Chow, Ph.D., RN, LAc(CA), DiplAc(NCCAOM). According to each of these experts, breathing correctly, in concert with these 7,000 year old traditions, can improve health, increase energy and prolong life. Each agrees that correct breathing is one of the most important things one can do to improve and sustain peak health.

Kleyne, also the host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, explains that to breathe correctly, one must inhale slowly through the nose, pause for a few seconds, and exhale slowly through the mouth. This deliberate practice teaches that breathing is primarily a balancing exercise. Like the ocean surf, inhaling draws life energy in; pausing before exhaling allows your body to absorb the moisture in the oxygen; exhaling expels waste and prepares for the next breath. You should practice inhaling from the diaphragm (at the bottom of the ribs) rather than from the chest or shoulders. A good cleansing breath, according to Dr. Chow, should take about 20 seconds: 10 seconds to inhale and 10 seconds to exhale. For most people, a breath lasts only three to five seconds. Aung recommends a minimum of 20 minutes per day of deep breathing exercises.

Breathing is the body’s primary life source and the interface with the surrounding atmosphere, Aung, Chow and Kleyne agree. Water vapor is the conduit between the two. As a result, breathing and water vapor are the two most basic necessities to sustain life on Earth. Lungs could not absorb oxygen without water vapor, Kleyne notes. Eyes and skin also “breathe” by absorbing water vapor and oxygen directly from the atmosphere. Lungs, like the skin surface, urinary tract and bowels, also flush toxins and waste.

Every human activity is performed with more control and energy, less stress, and greater harmony and centeredness when correct breathing technique is applied. The greater one’s skill and mastery over their breathing, the healthier and more successful they will be. The difference can be felt from the very first correct breath. Chow adds. Tai Chi – one of thousands of forms of Qigong – is a martial arts discipline as well as a holistic body and health discipline. Its exercises improve the ability to execute certain controlled martial arts movements. Correct breathing, according to Aung, Kleyne and Chow, is slow and deep and done with the entire body, especially the diaphragm. Infants are born with the ability to breathe correctly, but this skill diminishes as the child matures.

Kleyne, Chow and Aung also agree on the benefits of drinking pure water every day. The body does not expend nearly as much energy flushing and eliminating water as it does, for example, on flushing energy or caffeine drinks. Energy-draining drinks and foods are easily identified, Kleyne notes. They are foods we know are bad for us, either because they are hard to digest or because of high sugar, fat, cholesterol, caffeine or alcohol content.

Kleyne recommends eight-to-twelve full glasses of pure water per day, in addition to all other fluid intake. Tea, non-sugared juices and water with vitamins or slight flavoring added are acceptable choices to supplement one’s daily water. Caffeine, sugar, alcohol and carbonation are dehydrating and cause the body to lose water.

The objectives of Tai Chi and Qigong, everyone agrees, are balance, control and harmony of the body, mind and spirit. Chow observed that Western medicine can perform miracles for a broken body but that traditional ancestral healing is just as important. Each individual must take responsibility for their own health before symptoms develop. Breathing properly is a huge step in the direction of a long and healthy life.

Sharon Kleyne Says Air Conditioning Accelerates Body Water Vapor Evaporation

Kleyne Cautions Air Conditioner Users against Dry Eyes & Dry Skin. Water Advocate Kleyne Claims Artificial Environments Can Damage Health.

Summers are long and summers are hot. In developed countries, people spend billions of dollars running air conditioning systems and smaller units to cheat the heat while heat-related deaths in poorer countries soar. This fact doesn’t mean, however, that people in developed countries are always getting the best of it. Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, wonders how many people know that air conditioning is actually a health hazard? “Air conditioning can cause the skin and the eyes to lose water content,” said Kleyne. “The loss of water content can result in physical dehydration of the skin and eyes, possibly leading to dehydration-related diseases such as dry eye.”

Forced air that circulates through an air conditioner and is cooled achieves an atmospheric imbalance. The cool air will not evaporate to allow the atmosphere to be humid. If the air is too hot, the air will over-evaporate. That’s why water often drips off air conditioners during the heat of summer. Tampering with the natural atmosphere often results in such an imbalance and makes normal breathing harder. It also results in chemical imbalances thanks to insulated windows, walls and synthetic carpeting.

When the air is too warm or too cold, as is often the case, the body will not be able to breathe the atmosphere’s water vapor. This includes the water covering the surface of the eyes and contained in the upper skin layers. The result can be dry eye and dry skin complaints. The eye’s tear film is 99 percent water and the upper skin layers are 70 percent water.
Dry eye and dry skin symptoms include dry and itching eyes, blurred vision, eye strain, fatigue, headache, watery eyes, dry skin, itchy skin and flaky or “ashy” skin.

Kleyne’s suggestions to reduce dehydration from air conditioning or winter heating are here. Crack a window – especially in the bathroom – to let fresh outside air in. Put baffles over heating and cooling vents so the wind doesn’t blow directly on anybody. Set out bowls of water and house plants. The ideal temperature and humidity for comfort and for preventing accelerated surface evaporation from the skin and eyes is 60 to 80 degrees F and 40 to 60 percent relative humidity. Kleyne also suggests that you take a cool bath or shower. Humidify eyes and skin, as needed, with pH balanced, Trade Secret tissue culture grade 100% fresh water found in Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and/or Nature’s Mist® Face of the Waters®. The pure water is delivered to skin and eyes as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier.

Liver Doc Brendan Gaughran Shares Healthy Liver Secrets

The Liver Is the Great Regulator Says Dr. Gaughran. Liver Law Enforcement Keeps Us Healthy.

Do you know that your liver is 85% water? Brendan Gaughran, affectionately known as ‘The Liver Doc”, knows and so does Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Gaughran, the charismatic president of Liver Medic (, spoke with Kleyne about the importance of water and its impact on a healthy liver.

Gaughran, a molecular biologist who migrated from a genetic studies career to a new one concentrating on the liver, did so after a series of health challenges confronted his family and friends. Noting Kleyne’s groundbreaking work in water research and technology, Gaughran said “water is the basis for everything, including health.” Gaughran, who has owned three successful supplements companies, also routinely goes after contemporary health-challenging culprits such as chemicals, GMOs and pollutants in the food and water supply. “These toxins cause cancer, fatty liver, obesity and diabetes, among other serious ailments,” he said.

The liver is the first responder against unhealthy body invasions and it carries out its work in two stages. In the first stage—subtraction—the liver examines the foreign body to determine its identity and toxicity. In the second stage—detoxification—the liver, the body’s special forces, goes on the attack and breaks these down. The liver’s success in defeating and eliminating the invading toxins depends, in large part, on two things: antioxidants in the body, and the presence of lots of clean water. “Unfortunately,” Gaughran said, “some of today’s powerful toxins can change a body’s DNA and hormones. When that happens, the liver must work extra-hard to destroy those toxins.” Gaughran explained that this is where the liver’s renal connection to the kidneys is especially important. “Without lots of clean water,” he said, the kidneys will be compromised and fail to work to peak efficiency.” It is so important to protect the close, collaborative relationship between one’s liver and kidneys.

Sharon Kleyne, the founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, agrees with Gaughran and touts the importance of education about water and liver function. “Everyone should consider the fact that water research needs to be revived to avert even bigger global disasters. Remember,” said Kleyne, “that our organs are mostly water. Our eyes are 99% water; the brain is 80-85% water; blood is 50% water; bones are 20% water. The liver itself is 80-85% water.” For more than thirty years, Kleyne has researched water and focused on understanding the evaporation of the human body’s loss of water vapor. “We must supplement the body’s water vapor every day,” said Kleyne, “in order to achieve optimal health.” Kleyne and Gaughran agree that earth faces an epic water crisis that is often ignored by government leaders and citizens in general. Gaughran and Kleyne urge the United Nations to become more proactive, creating new programs and new technology, making water the centerpiece of research and education.

“The liver’s main function is getting rid of toxins,” Gaughran said, repeating the message he shares as a public speaker with audiences around the world. “The liver is the body’s regulator. One must drink clean water for the liver to operate at its highest level, and always drink enough of it.”


Would you like to share your thoughts on the liver, on your liver? How about new water research and new technology? Are you drinking enough water to maintain optimal liver health?

Cold Or Hot? What Water Should You Drink?

Sharon Kleyne Asks Does Cold Water Help You Lose Weight? Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Examines Theories About Drinking Water.

International water educator Sharon Kleyne has urged people for more than two decades to drink eight to ten glasses of water a day as part of her lead-in to her syndicated radio program The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. “I also tell people to drink those glasses all the way down and not sip from them,” Kleyne says, “because that’s how your body absorbs the most water.” And that’s the point. We are constantly losing body water vapor via the process of evaporation. To maintain excellent health, we need to supplement our bodies by drinking water every day. But what kind of water should we be drinking? What temperature is best?

Victoria’s Secret model Lindsay Ellingson begins each day with a glass of warm water. Why? Because an Ayruveda specialist taught her that the body has an easier time absorbing warm water, which is close to its natural temperature. Ellingson also believes that warm water soothes the stomach. Ellingson is far from alone in these beliefs. It’s true that warm water breaks down food faster and usually results in a better bowel movement. Warm water can also purify your blood, increasing your body’s natural detoxification processes taking place in the skin, lymphatic system and kidneys. An added bonus, reported by many believers, is that drinking warm water will curb sugar cravings.

However, others believe just as strongly that cold water—even ice water—is preferable to and healthier than warm water. Ice water fans are quick to point out that a major benefit is weight loss. The body’s metabolism, they say, is triggered to work more strenuously when cold water is ingested. Think of it this way. If you jump into a cold shower, your metabolism can spike as much as 550 percent. That’s a lot! Advocates insist that the cold water makes your skin and hair glow and boosts your immune system.

Then there is the ice cream argument. Neuroscientists have proved that ice cream makes you happy by stimulating the orbitofrontal cortex, the ‘enjoy me’ track of the brain. If ice cream has this effect, scientists reason, then it’s likely that cold or ice water does, too. In addition, cold water will reduce the blood flow to your muscles and send them new, less lactic acid-filled blood. The benefit to you will be fewer aches and pains. Finally, cold water stimulates hormones and testosterone (despite the myth of taking a cold shower ‘to cool down’).

Kleyne sees both sides and cautions that everyone is different. “No two eyes alike, no two anything alike,” says Kleyne. “Everybody’s metabolism reacts differently to the evaporation process. The important thing,” she adds, “is to drink water—eight to ten glasses every day.”

Sharon Kleyne Remembers When Health & Research Pioneers Found Cures For Sickness

Water Life Science® Researcher Sharon Kleyne Says We Need More Researchers Like Chick & Phelps. Sharon Kleyne Wonders Where Are the Cures for the 200-Plus Diseases That Plague People on Earth.

Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® likes to remind people that there was a time—until about 135 years ago—when health professionals were committed to finding cures for the illnesses and diseases that afflicted humankind. “Unfortunately,” said Kleyne, “money for such research dried up and the emphasis shifted to finding treatments that mask symptoms.”

As Kleyne continues her advocacy for a renewal of the ‘find a cure’ spirit in health care, she paused recently to honor two water pioneers, Henrietta Chick and Earle Bernard Phelps.

Henrietta Chick (1875-1977) was a celebrated British scientist and nutritionist who with Charles James Martin determined that the process of protein denaturation was distinct from protein flocculation. Their work launched what we now consider as the modern understanding of protein folding, which in turn led to Chick’s Law in 1908. This Law gave the relationship between the kill efficiency of organisms and contact time with a disinfectant. The Law, later modified by Dr. H. Watson became known as the Chick-Watson Equation, which is still used today. Chick served as secretary of the League of Nations health section committee on the physiological bases of nutrition from 1934 to 1937 and in ’41 became a founding member of the Nutrition Society. In 1915, Chick worked at Lister Institute in Elstree, testing and bottling tetanus antitoxin for the army. Later in 1922 at Lister Institute and the Medical Research Institute, Chick collaborated with Dr. Elsie Dalyell to study the relation of nutrition to bone disease. This work led to their discovery that there was a nutritional factor causing rickets. They proved that fat-soluble vitamins in cod liver oil or exposure to ultraviolet light could cure and prevent rickets in children. Chick remained at Lister Institute for over fifty years. Among additional achievements, she isolated vitamin C in a variety of fruits and vegetables. The anniversary of Chick’s death was just observed on July 9th.

Earle B. Phelps was born on July 10th, 1876 and died in 1953. Phelps was a chemist, sanitary expert and bacteriologist well known for contributions in sewage disinfection, water chlorination, shellfish control, sewage treatment and milk pasteurization. Phelps also described what is known as the “oxygen sag curve” in surface water bodies. In a long government and academic career, Phelps was instrumental in discovering a cure for Typhoid Fever in Trenton, New Jersey. As an assistant hydrographer for the U.S. Geological Survey, Phelps worked on the purification of industrial wastes and investigated stream pollution. Phelps also enjoyed a long career as a consultant on sanitary issues. He helped many cities resolve their issues with water treatment and sewage disposal. Phelps also designed and supervised the construction of many sewage purification plants including those at New York, Tarrytown, Rahway, New Jersey and Torono, Canada, among many others. Phelps was also a legendary teacher at MIT, Columbia University, Stanford University and the University of Florida at Gainesville.

“Pioneers in water research and medical cures like Henrietta Chick and Earle B. Phelps,” said Kleyne, “remind us where our priorities ought to lie and how they should line up. We need to get back in the business of curing illness,” Kleyne concluded, “ not just masking symptoms with more and more drugs.”

Conaway & Kleyne Discuss America’s Declining Health

Conaway & Kleyne Agree America Is Sick & Getting Sicker. If You’re Sick It Just Might Be Your Own Fault.

Air Force Combat veteran Dr. Joanne M. Conaway, LTC, USAF Ret. and water advocate Sharon Kleyne have a lot to talk about when they get together as they did recently on Kleyne’s nationally syndicated radio program The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Conaway, also a former nurse and current Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy is the bestselling author of Why Is America So Sick?

According to Conaway, we have created a pharmaceutical culture that is interested in profits made from treating symptoms rather than finding cures and getting people well. “It’s all about ‘feel good now’, not get well,” said Conaway.

Kleyne agreed. “Emotionally,” said Kleyne, “the world is not disciplined. Consider infrastructure,” Kleyne continued. “Water should always be first, but our leaders around the world have yet to propose an infrastructure overhaul that puts water first.”

Conaway added that emotions drive certain behaviors. “Americans, for instance, love instant gratification. That’s why they eat too many carbs, sugars and processed foods.”

“When a person isn’t functioning well,” Kleyne added, “he craves sugar and that can lead to a craving for drugs.”

“It has all led to the demise of health,” said Conaway, and that’s why she retired from nursing. “In the last 19 years,” Conaway said, “I’ve helped many more people get well than I helped in my 40 years as a nurse.” Conaway focuses on the gut and diet with her clients and patients. “Bacteria imbalance in the gut makes us unhealthy,” Conaway said. In her book, Conaway shares 90 essential nutrients that the healthy human body needs. “There are more than 900 diseases linked to the lack of nutrients,” Conaway said. In addition to drinking lot of water, Conaway recommends eating lots of organic leafy green vegetables, some organic fruit (in moderation because fruit contains sugar) grass-fed beef, free-range chicken (not fed on grain!) and organic squash. Dr. Conaway also believes in supplementing this diet with essential oils and flower essences.

Conaway and Kleyne agree that water is at the center of health maintenance and sickness cures but that we all have far to go until we are well enough educated to be proactive with our own health and help others, too. At the same time, Conaway reminds us that our health care needs to have a deeper connection to nature and perhaps not so big a connection to pharmaceutical companies.

Kleyne recalled words of wisdom from long ago. “Remember the timeless quote sometimes attributed to Napoleon Bonaparte or Frederick the Great but most likely originating with Claudius Galen, chief physician to the Roam army: ‘An army marches on its stomach’.”

Education Is Key To Battling Cancer & Winning

Sharon Kleyne & Effie Chow Discuss Holistic Revelations About Cancer. Effie Chow & Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Agree: Knowledge Heals.

Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America, recently met on the air with a beloved colleague of many years, Dr. Effie Chow. Dr, Chow is a versatile and talented practitioner who has healed thousands of patients in her holistic practice by focusing on breathing, water consumption, diet, moderate exercise, education and meditation. The talented Chow is a Qigong Grand Master, Energy Healer, Acupuncturist, Author, International Speaker, Humanitarian, Futurist and Visionary who shared her insights on holistic healing and surviving cancer.

Kleyne and Chow see eye-to-eye on most things. For example, they believe that many patients shoot themselves in the foot because they refuse to become educated about their cancer and the alternative treatments available in the world. Kleyne encourages proactive education and honest reportage about cancer research, new technology and breakthroughs, but she also calls for more education about holistic alternatives that can supplement conventional treatments. “Too many people are ignorant when it comes to the facts about cancer,” says Kleyne. “For instance,” Kleyne continues, “how many people know that water must be at the core of new cancer research technology? God is in the water,” Kleyne says, “and through the water, God brings all the power of life onto planet earth.”

Chow concurs, noting that when there is too little water, disease runs amok. Dr. Chow proposes living a more holistic, calmer life. “When one lives closer to nature,” says Chow, “she is better at managing stress. It is well documented that less stress sometimes leads to cancer remission.” Chow notes how the western mindset leans more on chemicals and surgery. It also sees cancer as an enemy, something we need to fight, but that can be negative, Chow points out. “When you fight something,” Chow says, “ it wants to fight you back.”

Chow urges her patients to drink lots of water and eat a careful diet crafted to the individual. “One must be gentle, practice empathic touch, exercise and sound,” says Chow. “The cancer is always listening,” Chow continues. “I believe in positive energy, in love,” she says. Studies in the last ten years at the Foundation for Women’s Cancer, the recent groundbreaking Reiki study at UCLA, the Whitehall studies on civil servants in the United Kingdom and the annual commitments to study projects at more than 300 institutions by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, among many other international studies and programs, overwhelmingly support Dr. Chow’s holistic assertions that high stress/anger increases cortisol, which triggers and exacerbates physical disease (such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, among many others).

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, also refers to recent studies that show the holistic healing power of positive thinking and energy around cancer patients. She describs how cancer patients surrounded by negative people and thoughts grow worse and worse, while patients surrounded with love and positive energy show remarkable improvement.

“If your brain is at peace,” Chow says, “and your spirit is happy, your body will be healthier, too.” But if you are housing emotional, physical and environmental stress, Chow and Kleyne agree, you are in great danger of activating the free radicals inside and waking up cancer cells. Chow also pointed out that cancer hates oxygenation because oxygen kills cancer cells. Cancer cells prefer and thrive on Co2 in addition to stress and diets heavy with starch and sugar. Cancer cells also hate water, so the more water you drink (at least 8 to 10 glasses a day) the better! “If we are serious about finding cures for cancer,” says Kleyne “we must make ourselves s smart as our doctors. We have to be responsible for our own illness and cure.”
