Kombucha Supplements Organs & Immune System. Sharon Kleyne Lobbies for More Proactive Health Education.

Kombucha, the wonder beverage with the slightly sour, fizzy taste, can be found in history at least as far back as 221 BCE in China where it was known as the “tea of immortality”. Traditionally, it’s made of slightly sweetened tea (green, black or both) that ferments for a month or more while a mushroom-type blob floats on top. In fact, this is the most important ingredient of Kombucha. Known as a scoby (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) it consumes the sugar, caffeine and tannic acids in the tea, creating a cocktail of live microorganisms. These microorganisms can be found in other fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut and unpasteurized yogurt. Probiotics are why organic apple cider vinegar is so good for you. “Your diet is important to maintaining optimum health,” said 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®, “and Kombucha can be a valuable holistic addition to it.”

Water advocate Kleyne, the foremost global educator of new water research, water vapor of the earth and body and the effects of evaporation, has always keenly encouraged people to take more responsibility for their personal health.“We should all be more proactive about our exercise and dietary choices,” Kleyne said, “and we need to learn a lot more about building up our immune systems. That’s where kombucha and someone like GT Dave of GT’s Kombucha come in.”

GT Dave’s is a Kombucha company that has operated as a beneficial and profitable family business for twenty years. Dave, the company’s director, explained that “probiotics literally promote life. They’re the opposite of antibiotics, which kill living organisms. Through the process of fermentation, which is a way for food to preserve itself, probiotics are created naturally to boost our immune systems and aid digestion.”And while that is going on, the body’s and the eye’s water vapor evaporation process slows down.

“A perfect follow-up,” said Kleyne, is to supplement the body’s and the eye’s water vapor with 100% pure water in order to maintain eye health and skin health.” For the eyes, this means using the only product on the market that is 100% pure water and is applied by a hand-held personal humidifier in a healing mist—not drops or a spray. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements the eye’s tear film, which is 99% water and needs to be supplemented several times a day to compensate for the natural process of eye water vapor evaporation. Just as Kombucha soothes and strengthens your inner body, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® soothes the ravages of dry eye disease;

Sharon Kleyne Clears Up Confusion About Dry Eye Disease

9 May

Sharon Kleyne Shares the Best Dry Eye Solution on the Market. Pure Water Supplement Puts Moisture Back into the Eye.

All over the world, the climate is getting hotter and as it does so, the atmosphere is drier. Why is that? According to water advocate Sharon Kleyne, it’s because the earth’s water vapor is evaporating at an accelerated pace. At the same time, a human’s body water vapor is also evaporating from excessive dehydration.

One area that is seriously impacted is the human eye, which naturally is 99% water. “Our eyes,” claims Kleyne, “are under constant assault.” Kleyne points to eye enemies such as artificially dry air (from air conditioners and central heating units), wind, dust, allergies, computer, TV and smart phone screens, driving, stress, poor diet and lack of sleep as major foot soldiers attacking the health of the human eye. “People spend billions of dollars every year seeking relief from these dry eye symptoms,” says Kleyne, “yet they would be better off turning to the only product on the global market that supplements the eye’s tear film and provides long-term relief from dry eye disease.”

According to Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica, that product is the sponsor of her show, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, Kleyne points out, is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in a patented micron-size mist. It is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide and the product was successfully test-marketed in more than 70,000 outlets. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne says, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water and that’s what eyes challenged by dry eye symptoms need. Eye drops may provide some temporary chemical relief, but they can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.

“Natural tears,” Kleyne asserts, “are essential to our wellness, to our health. Natural tears protect our eyes by lubricating them. They protect the cornea as well as the surrounding tissues.” Kleyne asks people to understand that tears are not just about crying. Yes, tears can be plentiful when we feel sad or some other overpowering emotion takes hold of us, but natural tears moisten our eyes and keep them lubricated. Natural tears make it possible for our eyes to focus without obstructions. Simply put, natural tears help us to see clearly. “If we didn’t have natural tears,” says Kleyne, “we’d be looking at the world through a permanent haze.”

Sharon Kleyne, a global expert on evaporation, recommends a recent study that proposes that researchers learn more about natural tears to better understand how to treat eyes that do not tear (eyes that suffer from dry eye). Such is the conclusion of the study conducted at the University of Western Sydney. Associate Professor M. Millar, director of the study, believes that researchers need to approach dry eyes “in a new, more constructive manner”. Kleyne, who has conducted groundbreaking research on dehydration of the body’s water vapor due to excessive evaporation for more than two decades, sees the need for more research “because dry eye disease is on the rise around the world. Everyone suffers dry eyes on occasion,” says Kleyne, “and billions of people are chronically afflicted with dry eye symptoms that often result in blindness. We need to get more aggressive in dealing with the word DRY and all that it means when it comes to the health of our eyes, our bodies and our environment,” Kleyne concludes.

Computers Damage Health & Trigger Dry Eye Disease

4 May

Adetutu Ijose & Sharon Kleyne Want To See More Computer Health Education. Computer Users Need Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.

Adetutu Ijose, www.foodsthathealdaily.com, www.wiredlifesolutions.com, an international health and nutrition consultant for computer users with SOG Consultants Corp and author of several books such as The Health Effects of Computer Use on Women, Teenage and Adult Texting Addictions, Eyes, Vision and Computer Use and The Health Effects of Video Games (all published by and available from Join theirs Publishing) recently shared her painful computer story as a guest on the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Ijose described how she worked long hours at her computer, drawn out shifts where she was wracked with deadline stress, failing concentration, mounting depression and especially blurred, painful eyesight and dry eyes. “The computer energy was speeding up the evaporation of my body’s water vapor and drying my eyes out, too,” Ijose said. “It’s then I knew I had to start supplementing my eyes several times a day with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.” Ijose said. It worked, too. Rather than having to turn off her computer and I-Phone and walk away from them, she taught herself to take regular breaks and drink plenty of water because as her year films were evaporating, so was her skin.

Like Ijose, host Sharon Kleyne is well aware of the fact that not everyone can simply unplug. “Like it or not,” Kleyne said, “computers and the internet have become as necessary to daily life as transportation vehicles and the toothbrush,” yet she insisted that’s not all bad. The advantages of computer technology are well documented, but many users are still ignorant about the dangers and drawbacks—most related to health.

“When you sit at a computer,” Ijose said, “you are looking at light through water (that’s how we see light), but the computer energy is actually drying out the moisture around it; it is drawing out the user’s moisture, too. The more you evaporate because of your computer and other devices,” Ijose continued, “the more you will develop stress-related behavioral and mental issues.”

“And the closer you get to blindness, too,” said Kleyne, who pointed out that blindness now is out of control everywhere in the world. Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, pointed out the close connection between the eyes and the brain. “The computer definitely affects the eyes,” Kleyne said. “Over evaporation of the eye’s water vapor can create emotional anxiety in the brain,” Kleyne said, throwing off your equanimity.

Ijose added that “if you are using a computer, you must align your body with a holistic, natural way of life.” Anything that happens to us has a holistic solution in nature if we only look for it. Ijose described how her computer is next to a window, which lets in the natural light that stimulates her brain. “Water is always nearby,” Ijose said. “Also, I blink a lot and take breaks for walks on which my head clears. Often, on walks, I come up with solutions to problems that were stumping me at my desk. Finally, I eat a healthy diet—organic spinach, carrots, kale, beets, collard greens, cage-free eggs and chicken and grass-fed beef and milk.”

Sharon Kleyne praised the responsibility Ijose takes for her own health and the specific process she follows every day. “We must all become proactive in our exercise and dietary choices,” Kleyne said, “and we must learn a lot more about the body’s water vapor and how it is affected by daily evaporation.”
Kleyne would also prefer to see major computer companies and businesses with a lot of computer workers offer health education to those employees.

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Begins China Dry Eye Campaign

1 May

China Welcomes Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® To Soothe Dry Eye Disease. Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Has Unique Answer for Dry Eye in China.

Dry eye disease affects 17% of the Chinese population in a country of approximately 1.5 billion people. Water advocate Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica, announced on the air the imminent arrival in China of a unique product that turns back the onslaught of dry eye disease.

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne’s research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® has developed the only product on the global market, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, that solves the dry eye dilemma. Kleyne said that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in a globally patented micron-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne said, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water and that’s what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “but they can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.

Sharon Kleyne, who has conducted groundbreaking research on dehydration of the body’s water vapor due to excessive evaporation for more than two decades, sees the need for more research because dry eye disease is on the rise around the world. “No one is immune from dry eyes on occasion,” said Kleyne, “but billions of people are chronically afflicted with dry eye symptoms that can result in blindness. “Natural tears in China,” Kleyne said, “are the right ticket to getting rid of dry eye symptoms,” said Kleyne. “Natural tears lubricate our eyes. They protect the cornea and the surrounding tissues. These facts make Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® the perfect fit for China.”

Sharon Kleyne added background material about this disorder of the tear film. It is a result, she explained, of deficient tear production or excessive evaporation. This condition can lead to damage to the ocular system and even blindness. Well known symptoms include pain, discomfort, headaches, redness, swelling and diminishing vision. It is not surprising that depression and anxiety are also common in people suffering from dry eye disease.

“Approximately 38,3000,000 Chinese are going to suffer from dry eye disease in 2017,” said Kleyne, “and we’re going to do something about it to help those suffering with these symptoms.”

Japanese Study Shows Coffee May Relieve Dry Eye Suffering

20 Apr

Sharon Kleyne Finds Caffeine Study Intriguing. Study Suggests Caffeine Helps Dry Eye Sufferers with Genetic Variations in Two Genes.

Sharon Kleyne tells us that dry eye disease affects more than 4 million people age 50 and older in the United States every year. This rampant condition occurs when the eye fails to produce enough tears or when tears are lost from the eye’s surface as a result of excessive evaporation. Unchecked, this condition can lead to more serious eye illness, even blindness.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, developed by Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is currently the only product that supplements dry eye with pure water and nothing else. Kleyne explained that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in a patented micron-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne said, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water. Eye drops may provide some temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “but they can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.

Nature may have also provided, for some, another source of relief. According to AsianScientist, Dr. Reiko Arita of the University of Tokyo School of Medicine created a study based on an earlier study that showed that caffeine users had a lower risk of contracting dry eye disease than non-caffeine users. Like the previous study, Arita’s research showed that 13% of caffeine users had dry eye symptoms while 17% of non-caffeine users had dry eye symptoms. Caffeine is known to increase the secretion of saliva and digestive juices.

Arita’s team also analyzed DNA samples of participants. They were looking for two genetic variations known to play a role in metabolizing caffeine. Researchers found that participants with genetic variations in the ADORA2A AND CYP1A2 genes showed greater tear production after caffeine consumption. “If confirmed by more research,” Arita said, “our findings on caffeine should be useful in treating dry eye syndrome.”

Dry Eye Medications: How They Work

Learning To Beat Your Dry Eyes. Dry Eyes Inflame Your Life & Can Cause Blindness.

With World Water Day gone by once again on March 22nd, it’s a perfect time to learn more about dry eye disease, which afflicts billions of people worldwide and can lead to blindness.

Dry eye disease symptoms include itching, blurring, burning, irritation, eyestrain, headache, and/or a ‘grainy’ sensation. The ultimate cause of dry eye disease is over-concentration of salt (electrolyte) due to moisture (water) loss in the tear film’s aqueous layer. When moisture is depleted, electrolyte and other substances become over-concentrated and discomfort results.

Some people turn to drugs for relief. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Inflammation along the edges of your eyelids can keep oil glands from secreting oil into your tears.” The clinic points out that antibiotics may be recommended to reduce inflammation. This treatment is usually administered orally, though sometimes eye drops or ointments are used.

If you have inflammation on the surface of your eyes (corneas), you may be given a prescription of eye drops that contain the immune-suppressing medication cyclosporine (Restasis) or corticosteroids. “Corticosteroids,” the Mayo Clinic cautions, “are not ideal for long-term use because of the potential side effects.

A third treatment described by the Mayo Clinic is eye inserts that work like artificial tears. If you suffer moderate to severe dry eye symptoms and have found that artificial tears don’t work, you may op for a tiny eye insert that looks like a clear grain of rice. Once a day, you place the hydroxypropyl cellulose (Lacrisert) insert between your lower eyelid and your eyeball. The insert will slowly dissolve, releasing a substance that is used in eye drops to lubricate your eye.

A fourth, somewhat macabre treatment described by the Mayo Clinic involves eye drops made from your own blood. Technically, the name for this is autologous blood serum drops. This may be an option if you have severe dry eye symptoms that don’t respond to other treatments. To make these eye drops, a sample of your blood is processed to remove the red blood cells and then mixed with a salt solution.

But unlike these chemical solutions, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does not flood the tear film. When chemical eye drops do flood the tear film, they wash away the aqueous layer’s remaining water, lipids, proteins, electrolytes and antibodies. The tear film is naturally 99% water, and it must be supplemented or replenished for maximum eye health and comfort. There is only One water product that supplements lost tear film moisture and that product is Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® consists of 100% pure, tissue culture grade water and nothing else. The water is pH-balanced and biocompatible with the natural tear film. The micron-size mist, applied with a personal, hand-held humidifier, instantly rehydrates the tear film while also moisturizing the skin of the eyelids and the skin around the eyes. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is safe for infants and it does not ‘run’ eye make-up. It has a four-year shelf life and can be used as often as desired. Optometrists, physicians, research scientists and ophthalmologists around the world recommend Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® above any other product on the global market.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, created by international water advocate Sharon Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is so easy to use. For a demonstration, visit http://www.EyeMist.com. With eyes open, hold the canister (your personal humidifier) at the side of your face, near your eyes. Press the top of the canister to release the mist. With the canister 8 to 12 inches from your face, move the mist across the eyes in a one-to-two-second sweep. For natural humidity absorption, do not mist closer than 8 inches. Brief blinking is ok. Most people fully realize the convenience of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® when they use it while driving. There is no muss and no fuss and it’s infinitely safer than using eye drops!

Remember that you can mist your eyes with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® as many times a day as you feel the need to. You can order Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® today at http://www.Amazon.com, http://www.Walgreens.com or http://www.naturestears.com.

Dry Eye Disease Thrives On Lack Of Educations

16 Mar

Sharon Kleyne Says Dry Eye Related Blindness Can Be Stopped. Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Steps Up Education Effort.

“If we continue to stick our heads in the sand,” says Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America, “there will be 20 million more blind Americans than there should be by the year 2030.”

Sharon Kleyne points out that blindness statistics will rise because Americans have been slow to educate themselves about the perils of dry eye disease, which can lead to blindness. Those who already suffer from the symptoms of dry eye disease—redness, soreness, headaches, blurred vision, itchy eyes, sinus and lung irritation—know how debilitating it can be. Dry eye disease can wreak havoc on your productivity and performance at work and at play; it can also compromise your family life because the symptoms make you grumpy, depressed and can spark ugly incidents of domestic violence. Unfortunately, too many dry eye disease victims adopt a grin and bear it approach. Many seek relief in the stop-gap application of eye drops to the inflamed area, but eye drops provide only a temporary solution, if any solution at all (eye drops can become addictive and create other eye ailment issues because of their saline and chemical content).

The eye drop solution to dry eye is temporary because eye drops do not supplement the eye’s tear film (this tear film is naturally 99% water). Steady relief from dry eye disease requires this supplementation. In fact, only one product in the world provides this supplementation that addresses evaporation of the eye’s water vapor and that is Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® from the research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®. Whereas eye drops wash away the tear film’s beneficial proteins, antibodies and protective lipid layer, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® delivers a patented micron mist that restores the tear film’s moisture. Against this product, dry eye disease rapidly retreats.

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® consists of pure tissue culture grade water and nothing else. This means that the water is clinically documented for suitability as a standardized tissue-culture medium in laboratory experiments. The hypotonic, low-osmolarity water has a slightly acidic pH-balance (6.4) and mineral content that are naturally biocompatible with the tear film of the eye. If you LEARN to use this product when dry eye disease creeps up on you, then you will greatly improve the odds that you will never go blind.

Order Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® from Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and gain the peace of mind that you will not go blind because you ignored signals and failed to learn what you needed to in order to avoid the disaster of blindness.

Sharon Kleyne invites you to write to her personally about your experience with dry eye symptoms, dry eye disease and your use of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® from Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®. “Wake up! Let’s get a dialogue going,” says Kleyne, “and share our holistic insights into new water technology and a new water lifestyle!”
