Water and Eye Health Researcher Offers Tips on Coping with Winter “Flu Eyes”
Date:11/18/2013

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 18, 2013

Everyone is familiar with “flu eyes,” the itching, burning, watering, redness and eye fatigue that often accompanies colds and influenza in winter. According to water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne, eyes are a major port of entry for cold and flu viruses and bacteria and maintaining healthy eyes can help avoid illness. Kleyne believes that treating eye symptoms during colds or flu is as important as treating fever or nausea.

Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a fresh water and health research, education and product development center. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the company’s global signature product, provides a pure fresh water mist; applied with a personal, portable, hand held humidifying device,; to instantly soothe flu eye complaints. Kleyne also hosts the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes.

According to Kleyne, the water inside our body, eyes and skin is the first line of defense against disease invasion. That’s why doctors tell sick people to “drink plenty of water.” When a person becomes ill, their body, eyes and skin lose water and becomes dehydrated. Dehydration symptoms frequently begin at common disease entry points such as eyes and mouth.

It is important to note, says Kleyne, that common eye complaints during flu, such as itching, burning, redness and watery eyes, are identical to the most common complaints in the disease called “dry eye syndrome.” That’s because flu eye is, essentially, dry eye.

Watery eyes, Kleyne explains, are a frequent dry eye symptom. They occur, in a dry eye patient, as a result of “reflex tearing” as the eyes’ attempt to compensate for the loss of water content in the basal tear film.

When the flu strikes, Kleyne notes, it is especially important to keep the eyes’ protective tear film well hydrated.and functioning properly. The irony is that winter may be the most challenging time of year to maintain a healthy tear film because more time is spent indoors during winter, where the air is dryer and contains more bacteria.

Kleyne’s suggestions for avoiding ‘flu eye” discomfort.
1. Avoid rubbing the eyes or putting fingers in mouth.
2. Wash hands frequently.
3. Drink 8 to 10 full glasses of pure water each day, in addition to all other fluid intake.
4. Open windows occasionally to let fresh, humid air, free of re-circulated bacteria-laden skin particles.
5. In home or office, shoot for 40% to 50% relative humidity* at 65 to 70 degrees.
6. Treat yourself to frequent long, luxuriant baths and/or showers.
7. Make a ritual of daily facial cleansing. Using a washcloth and very mild, liquid soap, spend several minutes repeatedly applying hot water compresses to the eyes and face.

Kleyne also recommends, for convenient and all-natural relief of flu eye symptoms, a soothing, all-natural, pH balanced fresh water mist such as Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. The application will conveniently supplement the tear film’s diminished water content, alleviate tear film dehydration and relieve dry eye complaints.
