GRANTS PASS, Ore., Dec. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Air Date: 23 December 2019
Guest: Ilene K. Gipson, M.D. (Boston, Massachusetts), Professor of Ophthalmology, Harvard Medical School, https://www.schepens.harvard.edu/womens-eye-healthorg/collabs-and-strategic-partnerships/womens-eye-healthorg.html
"We must be proactive about water and water education," says talk radio host Sharon Kleyne, "because without water there is no life." Kleyne, host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature's Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature's Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and produced by Rose Hong, founder and director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C., is also concerned about the rise of dry eye disease caused by water evaporation among women.
Dr. Ilene K. Gipson, M.D., internationally decorated Professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School, agrees with Kleyne that better water education and ocular health education is essential to finding answers to dry eye disease among women. "Dry eye is primarily a post-menopausal disease in women," says Gipson, recipient of a MERIT Award from the National Eye Institute and the Friedenwald Award given annually at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology meeting to honor the outstanding research of senior scientists in the basic or clinical sciences as applied to ophthalmology. "Like the upper GI system or any other system of the body," says Gipson, "the eyes are a little system that is so complex. When any part of it goes awry, then you get the symptoms of dry eye."
"We need more education," insists Kleyne. "The moment a baby is born, a lifelong natural evaporation process begins. So does the need to learn throughout life abut steps that must be taken to ensure good health. You must drink eight-to-ten glasses of water every day," Kleyne continues. You must get lots of sleep and eat a diet that is right for you. You must learn to breathe with the planet and the universe, and you must perform moderate exercise every day. Doing these things mean you are being proactive about your health."
Gipson, who holds the U.S. Patent Mucin 5AC measurement concurs. "We must learn beyond the old bromides about carrots being good for your eyes and remembering to sit far enough away from the television. People need more information. For instance, too many people have no idea than you can get melanoma of the eye."
Kleyne teaches that dry eye and other diseases can be managed better with an improved understand of how dry eye and body water evaporation work. "We need that education!" Kleyne repeats.
"The thing we want to get out there," says Gipson, is an attitude about taking care of our whole body. We need to think and act in terms of a holistic process for the entire system. Think about that in terms of getting messages out. We need to stop thinking so much just in terms of heart disease, diabetes or breast cancer, but in holistic terms of the entire body together."
