Keep Walking

May 17th, 2012


The Organs of our body have their sensory touches at the bottom of our foot, if you massage these points you will find relief from aches and pains as you can see the organs are on right and left foot, the heart is on the left foot.

 

 
This is covered in great details in Acupressure studies or textbooks.

God created our body so well that he thought of even this. He made us walk so that we will always be pressing these pressure points and thus keeping these organs activated at all times.

So, keep walking..

 

Talk is cheap, action is most important… Start Walking!

the DJ Got Us Fallin In Love again

April 25th, 2012

 

This is one of the HOT HOT songs.

My Aerobic Instructor, Kieran uses it to make us MOVE.

Kieran is very passionate in his occupation. We have ABT (Abs, Buns & Thighs) session with him for almost 2+ years.  Lately, I joined his Low Impact Aerobics.  He had students with him for more than 10+ years.

I immediately fell in love  with the Low Impact Aerobics.  It’s so so so FUN, FUN, FUN.  We move like MTV dancers, haha. The songs so hot and motivating.  After an hour exercise, your whole body smells, detoxing in fact.  This session is to burn our fat.

The ABT is torturing but definitely GOOD. This session is to tone our muscles and toning the whole physique.

If you just do ABT, you are building muscles on top of your fat.  So, it’s very difficult to slim down.

The Low Impact Aerobics is for you to burn FAT.  So, to be effective, they should  go hand in hand.

I invited Kieran to this year’s Chinese New Year gathering.  I casually mentioned that I wanted to lose 5kg by this year end but he took it seriously.  From the next session onwards, he gives us more hard time and torture than before.  Hei hei, although we complain, we enjoy it.

He is quite strick with his sessions.  He will ‘shout’ at you if he sees you ‘tao jiak’ (slow down).  My name gana called out, always loh. Aiya, bei tahan (cannot take it).  Slow and steady, win the race mah.  I told him that doctor says:  Listen to your body.  He said that I am the doctor.  My moniker in the class is ‘5kg’

I shall buy him a lunch when my target is met.

His sessions never once dull US.   There is always new steps, new patterns ….

We always look forward to it.

Rumoured the he was in the financial mkt years ago in forex dept?  Yet to explore further.

 

 

 

 The Journey is more important than the destination.

How, When, What to eat fruits – A Natural Healer Against Illness

October 12th, 2009

 

EATING FRUITS……..

It’s long but very informative

???

We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It’s not as easy as you think. It’s important to know how and when to eat.

???

What is the correct way of eating fruits?

???

IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS! * FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.

???

If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

???

FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD. Let’s say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.

???

In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil….

???

So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining – every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet etc – actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!

???

Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

???

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter.  If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

???

When you need to drink fruit juice – drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans. Don’t even drink juice that has been heated up. Don’t eat cooked fruits because you don’t get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

???

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

???

KIWI: Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber.. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

???

APPLE: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

???

STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

???

ORANGE : Sweetest medicine. Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

???

WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher.. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of lycopene – the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

???

GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

???

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can u believe this?? For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine.. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

???

A serious note about heart attacks HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE’: (THIS IS NOT A JOKE!) Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack . Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive…

???

A cardiologist says if everyone 10 persons get to read this article, you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life.

Read this….It could save your life!!

How to ‘gain’ many years younger than your age?

July 10th, 2009

 

 Foods that keep you young

Olive Oil:
Contains polyphenol, powerful antioxidants that help prevent age-related diseases.  The monosaturated fats in olive oil were largely responsible for the low rates of heart disease and cancer.

Yoghurt:
Yoghurt is rich in calcium which helps stave off osteoporosis and contain ‘good bacteria’ that help maintain gut health and diminish the incidence of age-related intestinal illness.  Eat Yoghurt for long lives. 增加多几个十年!

 Fish: (eat extra-ordinary amount)
Is abundance with Omega-3 fats which helps prevent cholestrol build-up in arteries and protect against abnormal heart rhythm.

Chocolate:
Drink beverage made with generous proportion of coca, which is unusually rich in flavanols that help preserve the healthy function of  blood vessels.  Maintaining youthful blood vessels lower risk of high blood pressure, type 2 diabets, kidney diseas and dementia.

Nuts:
Nuts are rich sources of unsaturated fats, so they offer benefits similar to those associated with olive oil.  Nuts also have concentrated sources of vitamins, minerals and other phytochemicals, includingantioxidants.  Eating nuts, on average, extend your lifespan by  extra 2.5 .

Blueberries:
Compound in blueberries (and other berries) mitigate inflamation and oxidate damage, which are associated with age-related deficits in memory and motor function.

 IQ Question to make you young:

Is strawberry a fruit?

 

Polyphenol – an antioxidant phytochemical (as chlorogenic acid) that tends to prevent or neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals.

Phtyochemical – bioactive chemical compounds found in plants, as antioxidants, considered to be beneficial to human health.

Go Bananas!

June 23rd, 2009

 

Stock Illustration - food, fruit, plants,  plant, banana.  fotosearch - search  clipart, illustration,  drawings and vector  eps graphics images

 

After reading this, you’ll never ‘look down’ at  banana and up up up is the cost of banana.

Banana, a natural remedy for many illness – high in fiber, high in vitamin B, high in natural sugars, high in iron, high in potassium. Definitely, a must to add to our daily diet.  When compare a banana to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.

It contains 3 natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and  glucose combined with fiber, a banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder banana is the number one fruit with the world’s leading athletes.   

Besides being an energy booster, there are many more advantages of eating bananas daily:

Depression/PMS/SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
Banana contains tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier. 

Anemia :
Banana, high in iron, can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure :
Banana, extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure.  So, now you know why, hospital meal always come with bananas.

Brain Power :
Eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch helps to boost brain power. 

Constipation :
Banana can help restore normal bowel action, without resorting to laxatives.

Hangovers :   Clipart - banana split.  fotosearch - search  clipart, illustration,  drawings and vector  eps graphics images
Drink a  glass of banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels,while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heartburn :
Banana has natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

Morning Sickness :
Snacking on banana between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Mosquito bites :
Try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. It helps to reduce swelling and irritation.  So, remember to bring along bananas when outing.

Nerves :                  Stock Illustration - land animal, vertebrate,  mammal, mammalia,  animal, pet. fotosearch  - search clipart,  illustration,  drawings and vector  eps graphics images
Banana, high in B vitamins, helps calm the nervous system.                                         

Ulcers :
Banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control:
Banana is eaten as a “cooling” fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. 

Smoking:
The B6,B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

Stress :
Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body’s water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be balanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

Strokes :
Eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

Warts:
If you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!

Food We Should Ideally Eat Daily

  Black Bean     Blueberries             Carrot        Walnuts         Oats

Black Beans:
Black beans boost brain power because they’re full of anthocyanins, which are antioxidants that improve brain function. One 1/2-cup daily serving provides 8 grams of protein and 7 1/2 grams of fiber. Beans in general are low-calorie and free of artery-clogging, heart-disease- promoting saturated fat.

Blueberries:
Blueberries  more antioxidants than any other well-known fruit. They also help prevent cancer, diabetes and age-related memory loss. Because they’re rich in antioxidant vitamins A and C, blueberries also boost cardiovascular health.

Carrots:
Carrots are a great source of the fat-soluble phytochemicals beta-carotene and vitamin A, which help protect you against cancer and inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and asthma.

Walnuts:
Walnuts are richer in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. They’re also loaded with more anti-inflammatory phytochemicals (polyphenols) than red wine and contain half as much muscle-building protein as chicken. Consume daily about seven nuts, to enjoy the benefits of walnuts.

Oats for Better Abs:
Oats contain soluble fiber, which protects against heart disease by making your arteries suppler and lowering your blood cholesterol level. Oats are complex carbs, which means that through their protein content (10 grams of protein per serving), they slow down the release of sugar to the blood stream, making it possible for you to use the fuel as energy and to build muscle. Building muscle helps you burn calories more efficiently, even at rest.

7 Don’ts After A Meal

May 4th, 2009

 

 *  Don’t smoke
Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of   cancer is higher).

Don’t eat fruits immediately
Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.  
                                       
Don’t drink tea
Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid.  This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.
     
Don’t loosen your belt
Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted & blocked.
                                             
Don’t bathe
Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease.  This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.

Don’t walk about
People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true.  Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.

Don’t sleep immediately
The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.  

Finally don’t just keep this information to yourself.
Please forward it to your friends.  Let them be aware!

Diarrhoea Cure

April 22nd, 2009

 Stock Photo - portrait of english  bulldog wearing  a scarf. fotosearch  - search stock  photos, pictures,  images, and photo  clipart

With recent case on the Gelyang Serai food poisoning out break, my good friend, Mr Ng Kheng Hiang would like  to share this circulated info ….

When someone gets diarrhoea, sometimes  the solution is so easy, we wonder why anyone has to suffer.

The secret is in rice water.  Don’t feel shameful about this folk remedy.  

Professor Wong Hock Boon, the  notable paediatrician, had presented a paper on it at some conference. He had done clinical trials on it and his results were published in the Lancet, the Medical Journal.  In fact, he was credited for saving the lives of 2 million African babies by this method.

 

It is rice water and not rice, that does the trick.  You take a handful of rice and boil it in a large saucepan with lots of water. Like three or four large glasses….then you cool that and drink the water. If you are in a hurry to relieve the ailing person, take the saucepan off the fire and dunk it in a frying pan or basin of cool water with ice cubes if necessary.This gives the patient a chance to drink the rice water sooner  and cure himself or herself sooner.When drinking the rice water, make  sure there is lots of it. You have to tell the patient that enough water must  go in to line your guts from throat to other end, all 10 to 12 metres of it.   If you take rice, it stays in the stomach. If you take broth, some of it may  go into the small intestine.

When drinking the rice water, make  sure there is lots of it. You have to tell the patient that enough water must  go in to line your guts from throat to other end, all 10 to 12 metres of it.   If you take rice, it stays in the stomach. If you take broth, some of it may  go into the small intestine.

But if you take rice water, it will carry rice grains to every inch of your small and large intestine to the end where the problem is.

 

How does it work? Even Prof Wong Hock Boon doesn’t  know.   For further research, go to *http://rehydrate.org/dd/dd06.htm#page2*

It is good to pass on the info to everyone you know because the complaint is so common and people suffer unnecessarily. You would be doing your friends a great favour  to relieve them of their misery when the occasion arises.
