Testimony: High Cholesterol, Triglycerides and Blood Pressure Levels

Ms F introduced her mother to take Lingzhi as her mother has been taking painkillers for the last 10-20 years. They initially thought her pain was caused by arthritis.

Her mother consumed 20 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 4 sachets Yung Kien Pollen a day for 1 month.
Vertigo reaction: She suffered from pain for 8-10 hours and she could not work at all.
To address that, she removed 10 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma from the capsules, mix with water and then drink. She saw a very effective result. She consumed in that manner for 2-3 rounds. She felt less pain and could rest better.
By the next day, the pain had disappeared.

She consumed this dosage for 4 months. She takes care of children and babies which requires her to wake up at midnight to feed them. That causes her to have insufficient sleep. However, after taking Lingzhi and Pollen, overall, she feels more energetic, her body is lighter and her bowel movement is better.

When she did a blood test in September 2016, the blood pressure reading was high and cholesterol reading was 7.2 mmol/L.
When she did another blood test end December 2016, the cholesterol level has reduced to 4.9  mmol/L and her triglyceride level also went down. She did not have uric acid problem as she also drinks Luchun Lingzhi Tea. The readings of her blood density level also reduced. Ms F said she was very amazed as her mother did not take any cholesterol medication, only Lingzhi and Pollen.
Her current dose is 6 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma a day. The painkiller medication is also reduced from 2-3 tablets a day to occasionally 1 a day.


Testimony: High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol and High Blood Sugar (3 Highs)

Mr JC's mother is 79 years old. She is a patient of the 3 Highs. When she was diagnosed, the doctor also found that both her kidney functions were about 30%. She has been on medication since her early 50s. They suspect the weakened kidney function was due to long-term use of diabetic drugs. Prior to 2002, she started to find it very difficult to walk. Her children thought it was caused by loss of collagen in her knees but the doctor said there was no problem with her knees.

Just before CNY 2002, one day when she woke up, she could not put her feet on the ground; she felt great pain. She had to be on wheelchair for 2 weeks. Because of that, she was introduced to Shuang Hor products in Mar 2002 and decided to consume 4 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 8 capsules Yung Kien Pollen + 2 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein everyday.

Vertigo reactions: She felt so much pain on Day 2 that she could not sleep and could not walk. Because of the excessive discomfort, she was advised to stop Lingzhi first and concentrated on taking 10-20 Yung Kien Pollen + 4 Jia Hor Soya Protein a day, for 1 month. After that, she included Lingzhi. This time, she could withstand the reactions much better. Thus she continued to take, following a Bell-Shape schedule, up to 12-20 Yung Kien Ganoderma a day (double the amount of Pollen and 4 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein).

She weighed 120+ kg. After the 4 months of consumption, she lost about 15-20 kg - which was later found to be mostly due to very bad water retention. The good news was, despite the quick weight loss, her skin was not wrinkled but still looked very nice.

In 2016, almost 15 years later, her kidney function was still maintained at 30%; no degeneration. She stopped her cholesterol drug in 2005 and took minimum amount of blood pressure drugs. In early 2016, she was approved by her TCM doctor to stop her diabetic drugs. Her sugar level is at 5-7 mmol/L before meals. It is very amazing for such an elderly person who has been on diabetic medication for several decades to be able to stop her medication.

Her maintenance dose is 6 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 15-20 capsules Yung Kien Pollen + 2-4 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein + 2-3 sachet Vitaking + Jia Hor Fiber Lactoberry + CEO Coffee + Luchun Tea everyday. The reason is after 15 years, she knows that the products are very safe and very effective for someone with her condition. It saves her a lot of time and money in terms of avoiding kidney dialysis or kidney transplant.


Testimony: Low Blood Pressure and Lingzhi

Ms S said her mother suffered from dizzy spells for 3 days and found that her blood pressure reading was 120/40+ mmHg (systolic/diastolic). On a Monday, her diastolic went down to 39 mmHg which was quite critical. She has heart blockage and takes HBP medication. Ms S feared the heart could be weakening. Ms S told her mother to rest and at the same time, consume 10 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma every hour while waiting for her sister to bring her to the hospital. She consumed about 3 or 4 rounds before finally seeing the heart specialist. By then, her blood pressure has normalised at 120/70 mmHg. This shows how effective Lingzhi is when used during emergency situation.

At the same time, her blood test result indicated that her haemoglobin reading was 5.3 g/dL (normal level for females is above 11 g/dL). This is because she's a thalassemic anaemic patient. She was hospitalised on Monday and had a transfusion with 2 bags of blood. She was able to be discharged on Tuesday.

Over the next few days, she took about 20-30 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma. By Thursday morning, she was back to normal. On Saturday, she was healthy enough and could proceed to attend a 7-day meditation retreat in Genting. She was very amazed at how Lingzhi had helped her.


Testimony: High Cholesterol

Ms BT's mother, 59, has been suffering from high cholesterol problem for the past 10 years. In 2015, she was told she was unable to donate blood as she was taking cholesterol medication. She has been taking half a pill daily since her diagnosis. Her reading never drop but hovered around 8-9 mmol/L. She started to complain about feeling weakness in the arm.

In April 2015, she started a 3-month course.
In Month 1, she consumed 4 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 1 sachet Yung Kien Pollen + 2 Jia Hor Soya Protein + 1 Jia Hor Fiber + 1 Lactoberry each time, 3 times a day. She stopped her cholesterol medication to determine if it was the cause of the weakness in her arm.

Healing reaction: Diarrhea of more than 10 times a day. Surprisingly, she didn't feel dehydrated or fatigued. She was able to do house chores.

In Month 2, she reduced the dosage to twice a day. Her diarrhoea gradually reduced.
In Month 3, she reduced further to once a day, as a long-term maintenance.

After 3 months, she did a blood test. The results showed her cholesterol level had dropped to 7 mmol/L, without taking any cholesterol pill. She no longer complained about weakness in her arm. Her temper has also become milder.


Testimony: 76 Year Old With High Blood Pressure Falls from Stairs

Mr T's father, 76, had a very bad fall down the stairs about 1 week before Chinese New Year. He was bleeding and was hospitalised for 4-5 days. They ran many tests on him including CT scan and X-ray. It was confirmed he did not suffer concussion. He has existing health conditions including high blood pressure, kidney problem, platelet problem, liver problem and prostate enlargement.

He started taking 11 Yung Kien Ganoderma2 + 11 Yung Kien Ganoderma a day (divided into 4 + 4 morning, 4 + 4 afternoon and 3 + 3 at night). He also takes 2 Vitaking a day. He used to take 4 different kinds of high blood pressure medication. During this period, he stopped them all because his blood pressure reading appeared normal hence there was no necessity to take any meds. His reading was 122/76 mmHg.

Healing reaction after 4 days: Very tired, had to sleep 16 hours a day, dizzy.
After Day 5: Diarrhea everyday up to 10 times a day, even though he didn't eat much. He did not feel dehydrated or any weakness in his legs caused by diarrhoea. He had no appetite because the food tastes bad to his tastebuds (doctor said the CT scan will have the side effect of disrupting the appetite).

Week 2: He doesn't look so weak anymore. He regained his normal appetite. The bruises have disappeared. His blood pressure was maintained at a healthy level.

Mr T's father suffered from a critical situation. If Mr T didn't have such confidence in Lingzhi, his father could very well still be in hospital or perhaps need to undergo operation, during the Chinese New Year period.

Exclusive: Steroids: How It Works and Side Effects

Not many people take supplements but a lot of people take drugs (e.g. painkillers, antibiotics, HBP pills, statins, steroids etc). Unfortunately most do not know what they are taking and do not realise it is a type of drug. For example, a person with skin rashes may not know that the cream he applies to the rash contains steroids and is harmful in long-term application. Let us now understand what is steroid and the side effects it brings.

Steroid is a type of hormone. It is produced by our body as well as made synthetically in the lab. Some natural steroids are cholesterol and bile acid. It is the drug form of steroids that cause us harm.

Types of Steroids

(a) Anabolic steroids - enhance and build muscles.

(b) Corticosteroids
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Treat auto-immune system disorders. There are more than 80 types of AISDs.

Exclusive: Anti-Hypertensive Drugs: How It Works and Side Effects

Sunday, 8 July 2018

Blood pressure is the pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels, when the heart contracts and rests as it pumps out blood with every heartbeat. The top number (systolic blood pressure) is the highest level your blood pressure reaches when your heart beats. The bottom number (diastolic blood pressure) is the lowest level your blood pressure reaches as your heart relaxes between beats.

Blood pressure readings:
  • Pre-hypertension stage: 120-139 mmHg, 80-89 mmHg
  • Stage 1: 140-159 mmHg, 90-99 mmHg
  • Stage 2: >160 mmHg, >100 mmHg, where you will feel dizzy and be at higher risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Why is blood pressure high?

High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is dangerous because it makes the heart work harder to pump blood out to the body. Some of the causes include:

(a) Hardening of blood vessel walls due to high levels of LDL. When blood vessel walls become harder, the pressure against it will also be higher.
(b) Hardening of vessel walls due to accumulation of calcium that are not flushed out from the body, which stick against vessel walls.
(c) Thick and dirty blood which require the heart to exert more pressure to pump.
(d) Lifestyle including unhealthy diet with too much salty food or alcohol; and lack of exercise.

Exclusive: Antibiotics and Anti-Viral Drugs: How They Work and Side Effects

Sunday, 1 July 2018

When we have fever and we go to see doctor, we are sometimes treated as "guinea-pigs", because it is not always easy to differentiate whether we are attacked by virus or bacteria. In such cases, the doctor will prescribe a common drug first. If it is not the right prescription, it will not be effective, you will not be cured, your fever will still persist. Then a different drug will be prescribed.

Bacteria can only be killed by antibiotics. Virus can only be killed by anti-viral drugs. Specific types of antibiotics and anti-viral drugs only work for specific species of bacteria and virus respectively. You will be fed with a cocktail of drugs until the doctor correctly identifies the right drug for you. If the doctor cannot correctly diagnose the pathogens and they keep on spreading, it can be fatal.

1. Background

(a) Bacteria

Bacteria look rectangular in shape, like a body cell, with a tiny nucleus inside, surrounded by the cell wall. The size of a bacteria is very tiny. One millilitre of saliva contains 40 million bacteria. That's why if you have poor immune system, when someone coughs, the bacteria can easily penetrate into your body, through your eyes or through inhalation.

Bacteria can be divided into 2 categories:

(a) Aerobic, which means these bacteria need oxygen to live.
As such, they can only survive on the surface area of the skin, e.g. open wounds on the foot of diabetic patients.

(b) Anaerobic, which are bacteria that survive without oxygen.
They survive in your bowel and your stools. That's why if you don't pass motion everyday, your colon will be very dirty and packed full of bad bacteria. Your stools will have very strong smell and it is watery. They are also found in deep puncture wounds inside your body.

(b) Virus

Virus is smaller in size than bacteria. It looks roundish / hexagonal in shape. There is an external protein coat and viral genetic material in the centre of the cell.

Guest Blog: 10 Powerful Antiviral Herbs That Boost Immune System

Sunday, 24 June 2018

As always, prevention is better than cure. That is why improving our immune system is very important. This is where healthy lifestyle and diet choices come in. It is estimated that there are over 400 different viruses causing infections, including the flu, the cold, hepatitis, HIV and mononucleosis. A lot of people choose to have a flu shot, or annual influenza vaccination; however, this is just 80% effective. Fortunately, a large amount of antiviral herbs are available out there, which can boost your immune system, fight infections and decrease inflammation. We bring to you 10 out of them. Just read on!

1. Echinacea

This is considered a top-selling herb. Using echinacea regularly is highly beneficial for immune system as well as our overall health. A study showed that phytochemicals in echinacea can help decrease tumors and virus infections.

Besides, this herb has echinacein - a compound which can inhibit viruses and bacteria from getting into healthy cells. As a result, it reduces the risk of contracting infections. Other benefits of echinacea include lessening pain, decreasing inflammation, improving skin issues, boosting mental health and treating upper respiratory problems.

2. Calendula

Among powerful herbs that boost immune system, calendula is commonly known. Its flower petals have long been used for medicinal purposes since the 12th century.

Calendula has a rich content of flavonoids, which are antioxidants with the ability of protecting cells from damage of free radicals, fighting viruses, bacteria and inflammation. On the other hand, dried calendula petals are used in ointments, tinctures and washes to cure burns, infections, and wounds.
Nowadays, the ear drops that contain calendula are used to relieve ear infections in children without side effects.

3. Cinnamon

In essence, cinnamon is a tree bark derived from Ceylon and mainly found in Asia and South America. It is a circulatory stimulant and warming aromatic agent that helps inhibit the growth of microorganisms in common colds and flu. Therefore, it prevents infections and stimulates immune defenses in acute cases of infection.

Furthermore, cinnamon has the ability of blocking the release of inflammatory fatty acids from our cell membranes, thereby preventing clumping of the blood platelets. You can take advantage of cinnamon tea (mixed with grated ginger) to fend off early symptoms of a cold.

4. Turmeric

Turmeric is a vibrant orange root, which is closely related to ginger. It has been used for medicinal purpose in India and Asian countries for thousands of years. This herb is an integral part of the Ayurvedic medicine to heal wounds, repel insects, release mucus, relieve inflammation, and so on.
The key active ingredient making this herb powerful is curcumin which gives turmeric its special orange-yellow color. Studies proved that turmeric could give a boost to the white blood cells, helping the human body fight off viruses, bacteria and other illnesses.

In addition, turmeric has been found to boost the expression of perforin, which is a protein playing a crucial role in immune response. That is why turmeric is mentioned in this list of powerful antiviral herbs that boost immune system.

5. Garlic

Specific chemical compounds in garlic are effective in killing many microorganisms which are responsible for most infections, such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, herpes and thrush.

Thanks to its antiviral effects, garlic could be used as a natural remedy for ear infection. Other benefits of raw garlic include controlling hypertension, reducing risk of cancer, boosting cardiovascular health, and boosting hair growth.

6. Astragalus Root

Another herb that boosts immune system is astragalus root, which has been commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The main use of this herb is boosting immune system. According to scientific studies, it was shown that astragalus root has antiviral effects, suggesting that it may play an important role in preventing the common cold and flu. Astragalus also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects, so it is also used for wound care.

7. Cat’s Claw

Cat’s claw has antiviral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. The root and back of this herb have been widely used to treat health issues like stomach ulcers, fevers, dysentery, and digestive conditions. Other benefits of cat’s claw include treating irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, ulcers and leaky gut syndrome.

8. Thyme

Thyme has detoxifying and penetrative properties thanks to its volatile oils, so it helps open skin pores and thin mucus. This herb is considered an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial agent for the lungs. It explains why this herb is used as an effective home remedy for diphtheria, typhoid, postnasal drip, whooping cough in children, common colds, bronchitis and sore throat.

9. Ginger

The ability of ginger to improve immune system was praised by Ayurvedic medicine. It may be because ginger can warm up the body, break down the toxin accumulation in body organs.

On the other hand, ginger helps cleanse the human body’s sewage system – the lymphatic system. Thus, it reduces your risk of getting viral, bacterial and fungal infections. Other health benefits of ginger are treating nausea, alleviating pain, improving diabetes, etc.

10. Licorice Root

The last but not least of the powerful antiviral herbs that boosts immune system is licorice root. This herb emerges as an incredible remedy for diseases like influenza and hepatitis C. In accordance with a review published on the Chinese Journal of Virology, licorice root has antiviral activity thanks to its triterpenoid content. More interestingly, this herb also possesses immunostimulating, free radical-fighting and antioxidant effects.

Other lesser-known benefits of licorice root are relieving pain, sore throat, and cough, healing adrenal fatigue and reducing leaky gut symptoms.

Exclusive: Painkillers and Statins: How They Work and Side Effects

Sunday, 10 June 2018

There are many drugs that doctors prescribe for the multitude of ailments we suffer from. It is likely that every one of us have taken at least one of these drugs at some point in our lives. These are some common drugs:

1) Analgesic painkiller (anti-inflammatory drugs)
2) Lipid regulator (statin)
3) Anti-diabetic drugs
4) Anti-depression drugs
5) Antibiotics
6) Steroids
7) All types of HBP pills (beta-blockers, ACE-inhibitors, calcium-blockers and diuretics).

These are the drugs we cannot avoid in our lives (unless we know of some alternative solution).

In this article we are going to learn what are the drugs used for, what are the common names, how do they work and what are the side-effects.

1. Analgesics Painkillers

Some common names are panadol (paracetamol), aspirin, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, naproxen.
People take painkillers to subside their pain, like when they have fever, inflammation (from "itis" diseases e.g. gastritis, hepatitis, colitis etc and from breakage of bones), headache or menstrual pain.

These drugs don't really cure your inflammation. What they do is to suppress your feeling of the pain so you don't feel it anymore. The symptoms are subsided so you feel better. But the damage / diseases are still there. Your body still has to heal the inflammation by itself.
