Experts Agree Too Much Stress and Too Little Water Are Hidden Causes of Most Disease

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) August 14, 2013

Most doctors agree that disease can be caused by bacteria viruses, genetics, lifestyle choices, the environment and many other factors. Health educators and practitioners Sharon Kleyne and Effie Chow, PhD, recently suggested that two resistance-lowering “triggers” that underlie nearly all diseases are drinking too little water and failure to deal with stress. Too little water, leading to dehydration, may increase stress levels.

The comments were made during a recent interview by radio host and water advocate Sharon Kleyne, with Effie Chow, PhD. Dr. Chow was born in China and has a PhD in Alternative Medicine. Her East-West Academy of Healing Arts combines modern Western and traditional Chinese medicine. Dr. Chow has worked with the US State Department and the National Institutes of Health.

Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a water and health research and product development center. As part of her commitment to educating the public about all aspects of water, Kleyne hosts the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. Dr. Chow is a frequent guest on the show.

Dr. Chow explained that Chinese medicine emphasizes prevention, balance and a healthy lifestyle, obtained by drinking eight to ten glasses of water a day and by paying attention to the body, mind, spirit, breath and environment. Chow is an advocate of QiGong and acupuncture. QiGong, Chinese for “Life Energy Cultivation,” is the practice of aligning breath, movement and awareness for medication and healing.

According to Dr. Chow, if any of any aspect of the body, mind, spirit or environment becomes out of balance, stress results and resistance and immunity are reduced. What begins as physical stress soon becomes emotional stress that compounds the physical stress in a vicious circle. Stress, says Dr. Chow, is the number one factor in health and disease. Disease can be prevented or lessened by developing the skills to reduce stress. Breathing, meditation, water intake and nutrition are critical in stress reduction.

Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, cataracts, dehydration and digestive problems, says Dr. Chow, are all directly linked to stress and can be delayed or prevented through lifestyle, meditation and diet.

Sharon Kleyne agrees with Dr. Chow and notes that physical dehydration, or lack of sufficient water in the body, will throw the immune system out of balance, trigger emotional stress and open the door to disease. One symptom of dry eye disease, caused by dehydration or water loss in the eye’s protective tear film, is increased emotional stress, including depression. Kleyne emphasizes that because no two people are alike, this is an inexact science.

Chow and Kleyne agree that to improve disease resistance, one must seek balance and alignment, and reduce or control stress. They also agree that the first step should be to avoid dehydration by making sure you drink eight to ten glasses of pure water each and every day, in addition to other liquids.
