Study linking dehydration and stroke severity supports fresh water advocates warnings

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) March 03, 2015

A recent study of the correlation between dehydration and stroke severity* confirms what water advocate and radio host Sharon Kleyne has been saying for decades.† Kleyne believes that dehydration – lack of sufficient water in the body – is extremely widespread and could affect as much as 90 percent of the US population. Kleyne further believes that research will eventually show that dehydration is a factor in nearly all disease, including aging and stroke.

Kleyne recently discussed the topics of dehydration, strokes, and daily water requirements on the February 23, 2015 Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show. For the live broadcast and podcasts of past shows, go to http://www.voiceamerica.com/show/2207/the-sharon-kleyne-hour.

The syndicated radio show, hosted by Sharon Kleyne, is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The education oriented 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 Mist® Face of the Water® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry and dehydrated skin and eyes.

The reason dehydration has such a far reaching impact on the human body and health, Kleyne explains, is that every process, structure and cell of the body requires water to function properly. The body is usually estimated to be 60 to 70 percent water by volume. When calculated by number of molecules rather than volume, says Kleyne, the body is probably 99 percent water (since water molecules are very small). Like the Earth, the body is a water recycling machine that to survive, must constantly eliminates used water and constantly replaces it with new water.

The body obtains water, according to Kleyne, from drinking via the stomach, and by absorption of water vapor from the atmosphere through the skin, lungs and eyes.

Dehydration weakens every part of the body that requires water, which is every part of the body, including bones and teeth, Kleyne explains. Dehydration especially weakens the immune system, muscles and the cardiovascular system. Dehydration can lead to heart and kidney disorders, stroke, lowered disease resistance and reduced effectiveness of medication. Severe dehydration can be fatal.         .    

Nearly everyone, Kleyne believes, is slightly dehydrated. With climate change, air pollution, increasing global drought and changes in atmospheric water vapor, the incidence and severity of dehydration is increasing worldwide. The most common risk factors for stroke – age, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, alcohol and drug use, diabetes, inactivity, obesity, poor diet and high stress – are also common risk factors for dehydration.

The elderly are at high risk for dehydration, says Kleyne, in part because as humans age, their thirst reflex diminishes. The elderly also tend to consume large amounts of medication, which is often dehydrating. Older individuals sometime avoid drinking at night so they won’t have to get up to relieve themselves.

Dehydration symptoms, according to Kleyne, include loss of appetite, thirst, dry mouth, headache, dry skin and eyes, low urine production, fatigue, lethargy, irritability and depression.

The primary method of preventing or alleviating dehydration, says Kleyne, is to drink at least eight full 8-ounce glasses of water each and every day – more when it is cold out or the air is dry. The eight glasses are in addition to all other fluid intake. Drink two full glasses upon rising and at least four of the glasses all at once rather than sipping. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and sugared drinks, which are dehydrating. Children 12 and under should drink half their body weight in ounces per day (a 50 pound child would drink 25 ounces of water). © 2015 Bio-Logic Aqua Research. All rights reserved.

“What There is to Know About Diet Pills?”

According to manufacturers, diet pills use natural ingredients capable of prolonging life and containing alcohol used in medication or flavoring. One thing’s for sure, never take diet pills as substitute for cutting calories without the doctor’s recommendation. There are simple but important steps to be followed when taking diet pills:

1.Never crush diet pills to mix in drinks or soups. Take it whole with a full glass of water.
2.Diet pills causes a person to urinate more frequently due to its diuretic effect. This could lead to dehydration, thus, causing complications. As a pre-caution, it is best to drink eight glasses of water everyday while on diet pills.
3.Take only the recommended dosage. Taking more than required will not help you lose weight but increase the risk of side effects.
4.Heartbeat should be less than 86 beats per minute. Stop taking the pills if it reaches 90 or higher that is why regular checking of pulse is a must.
5.Always follow the instructions set by the dietician and/or doctor and not only rely on what’s enclosed in the box. Also diet pills will only work as expected if diet plan is being followed.
6.After three months, stop taking the diet pills. Common diet phenylpropanolamine is safe to use only up to sixteen weeks. Other studies show that it can cause health problems if taken under one month.

There are two kinds of diet pills; one is the prescription only diet pills and the over-the-counter diet pills.

Prescription Diet Pills – are drugs regulated by the Food and Drug Administration agency which side effects are monitored, maybe advertised and prescribed under certain dosages. The most popular of these is Xenical, which is licensed for long-term use. However, this too has it’s own side effects, diarrhea, oily and unexpected fecal discharge are just some. Therefore, users are advised to take a low fat diet plan.

While Over-the-Counter Diet Pills are categorized as food substitute and are unregulated. Beware that these diet pills are not Federal authorities tested and may cause serious side effects up to and including death.

Aside from a dietician, local pharmacists can also help in determining the pills that are safe and not for each person’s case. Just be extra careful about the so-called “natural” or “organic” ingredients. Not everything that comes from a natural source is safe. One example is Ma Huang, which is a botanical source of ephedrine known as a stimulant and being studied for potential side effects.

Those who have or have a family history of prostate problems, thyroid disease, mental illness, high blood pressure, and heart problems should avoid taking diet supplements. The same applies to those who’ve had seizures or strokes. If someone is taking cold medicines, especially those with decongestants, diet pills should not be taken. Whether it be a prescription or an over-the-counter diet pill, the dangers are unvarying with other similar drugs which controls the brain to reduce appetite and includes chest pains, hair fall, fever, depression, and even impotence.

And as a general rule, don’t ever try to take diet drugs if pregnancy is suspected. Persons that are allergic to sulfites and tartrazine should also avoid taking diet pills. And those who are under 18 years or over 60 years of age should consult their doctor first prior to taking any dietary drugs, especially if they rely on over-the-counter stimulants used as a replacement for increase exercise.
