July 10th, 2009

 

 Foods that keep you young

Olive Oil:

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 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:

Tell you a joke.  When I had my girl, I was craving for durians. One day, my 2nd son who was 5 then, came to my room and asked:
“Mommy, is it because you eat durians and it causes you to have baby?”  ?????

Home Remedies to alleviate the Scars

April 26th, 2009

 Scars are marks left on the skin after surface injury or wound, it is the body’s response of healing.  It is a natural part of healing process.

There are  different degrees of scars depending on the depth and size of the wound, age, gender, genetics and ethnic.

How to Alleviate Scars with Natural Treatments:

It’s so easy and you definitely have One of these items at home:

 Aloe Vera & Vitamin E Gel  Smear it on the scarred area
 Green Tea  Blanch green tea, soak a cotton ball & apply
 Honey  Rub it on scar as often as u ca to hasten heal
 Lavender Essential Oil  Soak cotton ball with 1-2 drops & apply on scar
 Olive Oil  Rub on scar 2 to 3 times a day
 Vitamin E Oil Caplets         Smear it on the scarred area   
 Tea Tree Oil  Smear on the scar to hasten the heal  
 青草油(contributed by Sunny)  Apply daily

Of course, you have to apply regularly.  Singapore is not built within a day, right?

For the lst time, please apply a little on a small spot of your skin to test whether your skin is allergic to it.

For Acne Scar:
Mix 1 tbsp of sour cream ( 0% fat for oily face),
1 tbsp of yogurt,
1  tbsp of grind oatmeal and
3-4 drops of lemon juice

Apply on face, leave for 10 minutes and wash off.

I have not tried it ’cause currently I don’t have scars.  Anyone who has tried it, please let me know the result.  Of course, I will hear from you probably after a month or two of your persistent application.
