With the national debate over the Affordable Health Care Act (Obama Care) and the rising cost of medical services, health advocate Sharon Kleyne is concerned that too many people rely solely on their doctors to make health choices for them. Sharon Kleyne is founder of Bio-Logic Aqua Research, Inc. and host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio talk show. Mrs. Kleyne’s personal mission, in her business, on her radio show, in her writings and in personal appearances, is to encourage everyone to develop a personal program of health education and proactive self-help. This approach, she believes, could save billions of dollars in health care expenses.”

“When health symptoms arise,” Mrs. Kleyne explains, “before running to the medicine cabinet, try to learn everything you can about the symptoms. Often, they can be treated through diet and lifestyle changes. If you do go to the doctor, be fully prepared, consider the doctor as a consultant, and take full responsibility for treatment decisions.”

The good news, according to Mrs. Kleyne, is that if you begin each day with an attitude that you will do everything in your power during that day to make yourself healthier, you shouldn’t have to run to the medicine cabinet nearly as often and should spend considerably less money on health care.
