Sharon Kleyne interviewed Dr. Effie Chow on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio talk show. Their topic was the effects of air and water pollution on humidity and mortality rates in China. Sharon Kleyne and Effie Chow advocate Chinese medicine, acupuncture, qigong and the widespread use of personal hand-held humidifying devices in countering the health effects of pollution and climate change. .

Effie Chow is a PhD, acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner. Well known in China, she has been an Alternative Medicine advisor to President Clinton, had a documentary produced about her life and is a frequent television talk show guest.

The environmental situation in China is alarming, according to Dr. Chow. In addition to massive industrial pollution, China is experiencing extreme drying of the air from climate change and desertification. Even where the air is humid, the benefits are offset by extreme pollution and higher temperatures.

The result is a crisis in dry eye, eye infections, dry skin, pulmonary and cardiac disease and an elevated mortality rate from causes associated with dry air and dehydration.

Dr. Chow advocates avoiding formulated medicines and drastic medical procedures through prevention and health maintenance. As Sharon notes, "To survive on our changing planet, we must be responsible for our own health and the planet's health. We can all be proactive by educating ourselves about lifestyle, diet, nutrition, the need to drink more water and natural healing." Water and air, according to Dr. Chow, are the two basic essentials to life. You can survive for weeks without food but you cannot live long without clean air and fresh water.

The key to survival for individual Chinese citizens will be education in proactive health and the use of personal hand-held humidifying devices. These all-natural, all-water devices empower each individual, at will, to create a personal envelope of fresh, clean humid air.

There was considerable discussion of breathing. Breathe with your shoulders back and from the diaphragm. Take long deep breaths, in the nose and out the mouth. Doing this two or three times a day for ten minutes could have a profound health effect. Proper breathing could improve muscle tone, benefit heart and lungs, and has benefited diseases such as fibromyalgia, glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eye and computer eye strain.

Sharon noted that everything breathes: the lungs, skin, hair, soil and planet. Without the "breath of life," there can be no life. Humidity is the breath of life.

Dr. Chow's final words: Live with the planet and trust yourself - you were born with everything you need for this life, and for other lives that may follow. Start by giving eight hugs a day and allowing yourself three long laughs a day.
