Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 09, 2015
Melanoma of the eye, also called “uveal” or “intraocular” melanoma, ranks among the deadliest and most feared cancers. Although uveal melanoma is the most common type of intraocular tumor (inside the eye), it is one of the least publicized cancers. Water and health researcher and radio host Sharon Kleyne links uveal melanoma to ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure and to chronic dry eye. The good news, Kleyne reports, is that the disease is preventable by avoiding UV exposure and dry eye, and by living what she calls a “Water Life Science®” lifestyle.
Kleyne will discuss uveal melanoma prevention, dry eye and Water Life Science® on her show of Nov. 16, 2015. For the live show or a podcast, go to http://www.SharonKleyneHour.com.
The globally syndicated, education oriented Sharon Kleyne Hour® Power of Water® radio show is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica (Health and Wellness, and Variety Channels) and Apple iTunes. The show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere, body surface evaporation and dehydration. The Research Center’s signature product for dry eye is Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.
Uveal melanoma is actually a form of skin cancer. Like its more common cousin, the disease attacks melanin producing or pigmented cells. In the eye, these consist of the “iris,” the “ciliary body” and the “choroid,” which together comprise the “uvea.” Uveal melanoma is most common in older individuals and in blue eyed, light skinned individuals with less natural UV radiation protection.
Freckles and moles in the uvea are common, according to Kleyne, and that is where malignant tumors often originate. Area of color concentration in eyes and skin become cancerous as a result of DNA damage from UV radiation. One way to protect against UV caused DNA damage is to keep one’s eyes and skin healthy by following a Water Life Science® lifestyle.
Water Life Science®, Kleyne explains, is a discipline that acknowledges the overriding importance of water in every aspect of human health and disease prevention. Every cell, structure and system of the human body, says Kleyne, requires water to function. When a body part fails to receive adequate water, it begins to malfunction. Water is especially important to the eye surface, which is 99 percent water.
A loss of only 2 percent of one’s ocular surface or tear film water can trigger symptoms of dry eye disease (blurred vision, itching and burning eyes, headaches, fatigue, etc). Eye surface water, Kleyne explains, is especially susceptible to water loss from evaporation into the atmosphere. Maintaining eye surface water is critical to eye health, UV resistance and melanoma prevention.
Water Life Science® studies all aspects of water and health, combining modern medical research and traditional healing arts such as Tai Chi and Qigong, which Kleyne describes as “unifying sciences.”
The key to melanoma prevention, and to health in general, Kleyne stresses, is education. One cannot change what they are unaware of or don’t understand.
To prevent Uveal melanoma and maintain healthy eyes and general health, Kleyne suggests the following lifestyle choices:
Learn everything possible about eye health. Have regular eye exams. Drink at least eight glasses of water a day in addition to all other fluid intake. Be aware of dry eye symptoms and take corrective measures as necessary. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Wear sunglasses or a wide-brimmed hat in bright sunlight. Eat a nutritious, eye healthy diet (omega-3 fatty acids and dark green leafy vegetables). Avoid dehydrating foods such as sugar, carbonation, caffeine or alcohol. Get plenty of sleep (eyes rehydrate and repair themselves during sleep) and moderate exercise (watch for signs of dehydration when exercising). Avoid low humidity areas including rooms with forced air heating or cooling or insulated walls and windows. Practice deep breathing exercises 20 minutes a day. Take regular hot baths to draw out body toxins.
Kleyne also recommends frequent misting with a personal portable hand-held humidifying device to supplement evaporated moisture in dehydrated eyes, eyelids and face. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, from Kleyne’s Bio-Logic Aqua Research, provides a quick and soothing all water natural tear film supplement. Available at Walgreen, Amazon.com and AC Lens.
