Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
Winter flu season is winding down and with warmer spring weather and April rains on the way, winter dry skin season is also winding down. In preparation for the winter season, fresh water advocate and radio host Sharon Kleyne devoted four press release articles to the importance of drinking at least eight glasses of water a day to boost the immune system and avoid winter skin dehydration.* Kleyne’s advice for spring: Continue the same daily water drinking regimen.
On her upcoming Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show of March 16, 2015, Kleyne will discuss the coming of spring and the need to maintain daily water intake regardless of the season change. For the live show and/or podcasts of past shows, go to http://www.SharonKleyneHour.com.
The globally syndicated radio show is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, a global research and technology center founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere and dehydration. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature hand held humidifying device for dry and dehydrated eyes.
Just as baseball players benefit from keeping up their conditioning in the off season, according to Kleyne, any effective heath program should be maintained year round and eight glasses are the recommended minimum. For those who came down with the flu during the winter and whose skin became dry, now is the time to begin protection for next year. Also, summer is on the way, which has its own hydration challenges. Summer is the season of body dehydration and sunburn, which will also benefit from eight glasses of fresh water a day.
The need for eight daily glasses of water is not a “myth,” says Kleyne, and substituting other liquids is less than ideal. Every function, structure and cell of the human body requires daily fresh water intake. Skin and body are 70 percent water, the brain is 80 percent water, the eye surface is 99 percent water and even bones and teeth are 10 percent water. The body constantly eliminates used, toxin laden water via urine, bowels, perspiration, lungs and evaporation through the skin surface. If expelled water is not replaced, systems begin to malfunction.
Winter challenges the body’s hydration, says Kleyne, because skin obtains a substantial amount of water by directly absorbing atmospheric water vapor and cold air can’t hold as much vapor as warmer air. Also, we spend more time indoors in winter, where air is often very dry. Winter is also flu season, partly because winter dehydration can impact the body’s immune system.
Spring is ideal for water balance in the body, according to Kleyne, due to moderate temperatures and lots of wet weather. Water intake should be maintained in spring because, although not as urgent, it is always advisable to keep all systems functioning at top capacity. Besides, summer is just around the corner – a season when new dehydration stresses arise.
Cold air may be dryer but hot summer air causes liquid water in skin and eyes to evaporate into the atmosphere at a faster rate. Also, hot air causes perspiration, which can quickly dehydrate the body. Surprisingly, hot humid air makes skin perspire more than does hot dry air because the cooling effect comes when the water contained in perspiration evaporates. Humid air slows evaporation, forcing to body to perspire even more.
Kleyne recommends a minimum of eight glasses of fresh water per day (64 ounces total). Water is most beneficially utilized when ingested in full glasses rather than sipped. Fluids such as juice and tea, says Kleyne, while beneficial, should not be counted towards the eight glasses. Water containing large amounts of sugar, fat, caffeine, sodium or alcohol are dehydrating and should be avoided. Children ten or under should drink half their body weight in ounces per day. ©2015 Bio-Logic Aqua® Research. All rights reserved.
