GRANTS PASS, Ore., Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Date aired: August 27th, 2018
In this Information Age, Sharon Kleyne, host of the internationally syndicated talk 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 World Talk Radio and directed by Rose Hong, founder of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C., knows that water and nutrition are the best medicines for anything that ails one, and longtime super nutritionist Pam Bonney agrees. Recently, the two colleagues got together to discuss overcoming the obstacles that prevent people from living healthier lives.
"Water will teach us something if we are willing to study it," said Kleyne in her opening remarks. As she often does, she urged listeners to do these 5 things to "slow down the evaporation process that triggers illness": 1. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day 2. Get plenty of good sleep (sleep with earth's rhythms) 3. Develop proper breathing techniques 4. Exercise regularly with moderation 5. Eat a healthy diet designed for your body
"Nutrition is becoming the next medicine, and water must become our #1 priority," Kleyne said.
Bonney, co-creator-and-practitioner of Tried and True Nutrition since 1997 with Priya Lawrence, MS, RD CDN, was virtually born to be a nutritionist. Her mother pioneered the field, owning one of the first health food stores, Wilma's Natural Foods, near Woodland Hills, California. Today, Bonney and her partner work to unravel the situation of each patient that comes to see them about health issues. When Kleyne asked what the word 'situation' meant to her, Bonney replied that it referred to "one's medical conditions, lifestyle, nutrition habits and emotional condition. It's a mixed bag unique to each person."
Kleyne also asked about the process Bonney follows with new patients. "It's about having a conversation," Bonney replied. "We're non-judgmental. We're there to listen. We often hear about struggles with losing weight, about being tired all the time. They're at their wit's end by the time they come to us. They're sick and tired of being sick and tired."
With Kleyne's encouragement, Bonney shared that she then delves into the What/When/How with each patient. "What are they eating, when are they eating and how are they eating," said Bonney. "That's what we want to discover. We also often find out that people think they have to eat more than they really do or should, and drink less water than they need."
A relatively new field of study that is positively impacting health is Nutrigenomics. In this field, "a patient's gene code can be accessed to determine, for example, whether or not the patient is sodium sensitive, or sensitive to caffeine, glucose and so on. This, in turn, helps us to make specific recommendations for individuals," Bonney explained.
Bonney and Kleyne suggested home-cooking as a staple of healthy eating, preparing food a week or even two in advance so that it is ready for several days. "Diet is the medicine," said Kleyne, who also asked how people should go about preparing menus.
"That's a very good question," said Bonney. "At Tried and True Nutrition, it requires sitting down with a person and asking what they like. Then, we can offer choices and go from there."
Some tips include sautéing veggies with a splash of carrot juice for extra flavor, making use of pressure cookers and even enjoying pre-bagged organic salads. Kleyne shared a healthy family Dutch recipe, a delicious potato mash with kale and other veggies added to taste. Kleyne also shared the tip that some of the doctors she works with add some veggies to their morning oatmeal.
Finally, Kleyne asked if Bonney had to remind her patients to drink more water. "All the time!" said Bonney.
"Yes," said Kleyne, "it's essential to drink enough water every day. God has a Water Plan!"
