Chinese Holistic Dry Eye Care Invigorated By Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®

27 Apr

Sharon Kleyne Urges Water and Atmosphere Education. Water Advocate Kleyne Acknowledges Water Priority of Ancient Chinese Holistic Care.

To celebrate her 11th year on the air as 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®, Sharon Kleyne treated listeners to some little known facts about the traditional Chinese holistic approach to dry eye disease.

“Did you know,” Kleyne asked, “that in traditional Chinese holistic care, water has always been the top priority? Without the water in the atmosphere,” she continued, “there can be no breath and no life.” That is why Kleyne believes that the Chinese suffering from dry eye disease can greatly benefit from the only product of its kind on the global market today. 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 a mist of 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.

“There are several herbal treatments in Chinese holistic care for dry eyes,” said Kleyne andproceeded to share some of them. Huai Hua Mi (Pagoda Tree Flower) treats dizziness, blurred vision and red eyes as a result of liver heat; Qing Xiang Zi (Celosia Seeds) helps painful red, swollen eyes and cataracts; Ju Hua (chrysanthemum flower) clears the liver, improves red eyes, decreases excessive tearing, clears floaters and blurred vision; Chan Tui (Cicada Moulting) clears blurred vision and reduces redness and also relieves painful, swollen eyes; Qou Qi Zi (Chinese Wolfberry Fruit or Lycium) acts on the liver and kidney deficiencies of Qi and corrects blurred vision and vision loss; Mi Menghua (Buddha Flower Bud) improves sensitivity to light and soothes excessive tearing. Kleyne also noted that acupuncture in Chinese holistic care has clearly been an effective way to manage most chronic and degenerative eye diseases. Kleyne urged listeners to become more familiar with these time-honored traditional Chinese methods for relieving the symptoms of many eye afflictions, including dry eye disease. She also encouraged people to understand water’s priority in the fight against dry eye disease.

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.”

Face Masks In China Reach 1 Billion Says Sharon Kleyne

19 Apr

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Seeks Help for Chinese Dry Eye. Sharon Kleyne Says Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® the Perfect Dry Eye Solution.

China’s position as a leader on the world stage is affirmed several times a day, but not all of the notoriety is good news. For instance, Dry eye expert 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®, announced on air the other day that sales of protective face masks in China now exceed 1 billion units. That is a lot of face masks! Ranging in price from a couple of dollars to over fifty dollars, purchase of these masks contribute mightily to making dry eye a billion dollar annual business around the world.

Of course, the Chinese are well aware of their problems with a polluted atmosphere. And though the face masks offer marginal protection at best, most citizens argue that a little protection is better than nothing. Still, millions suffer excessive evaporation—loss of body water vapor—and millions more battle dry eye disease. 600 million Chinese were afflicted with dry eye in 2015 and the numbers have continued to climb to the present day. Blindness, also out of control in China, can be the last result of a dry eye condition.

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.

But more help is on the way. A new product, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, developed by Kleyne and her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® is on its way to China. It is currently the only dry eye solution on the global market that supplements dry eye with pure water and nothing else.

According to Kleyne, 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, and that’s what eyes challenged by dry eye symptoms need. 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.

China Races To Clean Atmosphere While Dry Eye Runs Rampant

19 Apr

Water Life Science Founder Sharon Kleyne Teaches Supplementation. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Can Be China’s Dry Eye Solution.

It is no secret that China’s atmosphere is severely challenged by pollutants including lead, yellow dust, electronic waste and industrial waste among other poisons. Yet, the country is making progress, in some cases greater progress than any other country in the world, in its efforts to clean up its atmosphere. For instance, the World Bank said that “China is one of the few countries in the world that have been rapidly increasing their forest cover and so is managing to reduce air and water pollution.”

This is good news to dry eye expert 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®. Kleyne has always taught that the atmosphere is the breath of life. The water vapor in the atmosphere makes it possible for us to breathe and replenish our own body water vapor,” Kleyne said. Kleyne went on to point out that if we over-evaporate without supplementing our body water vapor, we will die.

While the Chinese government works overtime to improve atmospheric conditions in China, citizens are taking the steps they can to help themselves. Traditional holistic programs provide relief from hundreds of ailments. In addition, more than a billion protective facemasks were purchased in China last year. Though studies reveal that the benefits of the masks are often minimal, the Chinese mask user is philosophical, believing that even a little protection is better than none at all.

Kleyne is concerned that 600 million Chinese were afflicted with dry eye disease in 2015 and the numbers have continued to climb to the present day. Blindness, also out of control in China, can be the last result of a dry eye condition.

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.

Dry Eye, Tear Film & Water Research Surprises

13 Apr

Radio Host Sharon Kleyne Says Be Curious about Tears. Tear Film Supplementation for Dry Eye Relief: What You Should Know.

Many people worldwide are conscious of saving water as we all grapple with one water crisis after another. Oddly, though, a lot of these people often ignore their own body water. “This is not good,” says 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. “Water in earth’s atmosphere is literally the breath of life, so a healthy understanding of water begins with a thorough understanding of water’s role in the functioning of one’s own body.”

Sharon Kleyne, a global expert on evaporation, recommends a recent study that proposes that researchers must 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, “but billions of people are chronically afflicted with dry eye symptoms that often result in blindness.

“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.”

We know now that the key to understanding dry eyes is to know how air interacts with the liquid tear in the eye and makes tears evaporate. Earlier, we believed that tears contained proteins that were found only in the teardrop. But new research discovered that proteins also exist at the surface and around the tear. These outer proteins, not those within the tear, determine how quickly tears will evaporate and cause dry eyes.

Sharon Kleyne shares that dry eye disease symptoms include blurred vision, redness, burning, itching, stinging, a gritty sensation and watery eyes. These symptoms are triggered by a number of causes including pollution, allergies, post-menopausal changes, windy conditions, computer use, reading, television viewing and artificial environments (air conditioning, central heating). Kleyne described how she has also developed the only product on the world market that comes close to the ‘cure’ that Professor Millar envisions.

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 supplements the eye’s tear film, which is 99 percent water. Kleyne also refers to the fact that it is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide. 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,” Kleyne continues, “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.

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 & The Little You Know About It

Sharon Kleyne Says Learn Or Risk Losing Your Eyesight. Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Touts Dry Eye Studies.

 

Sharon Kleyne is heartened to see that Allergan, in the business of eye care for seventy years, announced in the Wall Street Journal the launch of its new project, See America, which is aimed at educating people about their vision. “This is the kind of education program we need,” says Kleyne. Allergan has spent billions,” says Kleyne, “on preventing eye conditions that include diabetic macular edema, glaucoma and dry eye disease. Allergan also supports the research and product development of more than 150 companies worldwide,” Kleyne adds, “in efforts that will go a long way towards improving eye health around the world.”

Sharon Kleyne, America’s leading water educator and researcher, is doing her part to educate people about dry eye disease and the havoc it creates. “Dry eye disease afflicts more than 250,000 Americans each year,” Kleyne says. “400 million Chinese battle dry eye disease annually. The dry eye industry is costing more than a billion dollars a year, and it sometimes leads 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. This moisture loss is a result of dehydration caused by evaporation of the tear film’s water vapor. When moisture is depleted, electrolyte and other substances become over-concentrated and discomfort results.

Sharon Kleyne says that saline solutions and popular eye drops do not really bring lasting relief to dry eyes. These products only trap moisture, they do not supplement or replenish it. Instead, Kleyne recommends her research center’s signature product, Natures Tears® EyeMist®. It’s the only product on the market that effectively supplements the eye’s tear film. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® supplements the tear lens. Applying Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is easy and fun! You apply it with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in a patented micron mist.

Sharon Kleyne would like to hear from you personally about your vision stories. What do you think of going blind? Are you familiar with Allergan’s project, See America? What’s your view regarding education? Please let us know!
