Bits & Bites #167 - Health: A Convenient Health Scanning Solution

Sunday, 26 March 2017

Please email if you want to buy Shuang Hor products for your health.

These 4 criteria determine the state of your health:

1. Emotions
2. Dietary habits
3. Lifestyle habits
4. Health supplements

If you cannot manage the first 3 and only rely on health supplements (Shuang Hor products), then you have to take at very high dose to negate the high level of toxins you are introducing into your body everyday.


How do you use Lingzhi to "cleanse" your Lungs?
If you think your lungs are not so healthy, the best way to "clean" it is to consume 12 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma together with 6 sachets Yung Kien Pollen a day. Take with warm water. Remove the capsules and consume the powder directly. Consume at least 4 sets over 1 month.


Protein is like bricks.
Collagen is like cement.
Hence protein and collagen when consumed together have a synergistic effect of binding everything together - skin, muscles and body organs.


You consume so many supplements and products.
Have you ever seen their factory? Do you know how they are processed? Do you know what are the quality control procedures?
If you don't, how do you know if it's Safe? How do you know if you can consume for Long-term?
Assuming the products you take is effective, do you know what are the long-term Side Effects?


If you have budget considerations, just consume 4-6 bottles of Lingzhi over 1 month to do Scanning. If you don't have any vertigo reactions, then your body is very healthy. Continue with what you're doing and come back next year for another round of scanning.


If you always drink a lot of cold/ice drinks, your stomach will be very "cold". It can't digest well, and the intestines won't be able to absorb the undigested food. Not only will the food be wasted, it will also cause a burden to your body. Whatever supplements and drugs you take also won't be so effective.

Dengue - How to Strengthen Your Immune System

Sunday, 19 March 2017

Dengue has been a media focus in recent years. The number of cases from 1 Jan 2015 to 30 June 2015 was 53,823, an increase of 34% from the previous period. The number of deaths increased by 103% to 158 deaths. The Health Ministry stated there is no foreseeable prospect of decrease.

When Aedes mosquitoes bite a person infected with the dengue virus, and then go on to bite another person, the dengue virus is transmitted. The cycle then continues. There is no direct spread of dengue from 1 person to another.

Different Strains

There are 2 variants of dengue infection:
1) dengue fever (DF)
2) dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF).

There are 4 different viral strains responsible: DEN 1, DEN 2, DEN 3 and DEN 4.

A person infected by 1 strain develops life-long immunity against that particular strain, but further infections with other strains are possible.

If a person is infected by a different strain, there is a slightly increased chance of developing DHF. This increased risk disappears if there is an infection with a 3rd or 4th strain.

Clinical Features of Dengue

Dengue usually develops between 4-7 (range from 3-14) days after infection. There may be no symptoms, or just mild fever.

There are 3 phases in dengue:

Phase 1
High fever occurs suddenly and is often associated with flushing, skin redness, generalised body and muscle aches, joint aches and headache.
Other symptoms: Poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, mild bleeding from body surfaces.

Phase 2
Occurs towards the end of the fever phase, or when there's a speedy drop in temperature. This phase lasts 24-48 hours.
In patients with DHF, there may be an increase in capillary permeability. Such patients either become better if there's no or minimal leakage of plasma, or worsen if a critical volume of plasma is lost. Should this occur, there's damage to the blood vessels, internal bleeding, liver failure, respiratory failure and circulatory failure which may lead to massive bleeding, shock and death.

Phase 3
This is the recovery phase. The patient's general well-being improves, symptoms abate and there's recovery of platelet count and white cell count.
Patients whose immunity are weakened and those with a second dengue infection are at increased risk of developing DHF.

Western Medication

There is no cure for dengue. The treatment is symptomatic and supportive.
Medicines are prescribed for fever and pain.
Treatment for DHF includes intravenous fluids, blood transfusions and cardiorespiratory support.


The best way to prevent the infection is to prevent bites by infected mosquitoes.
  • Use mosquito repellants even when indoors.
  • Wearing long sleeved shirts and trousers, socks and shoes when outdoors.
  • Use air conditioning.
  • Ensure windows and door screens are secure and have no holes.
  • Use mosquito nets if sleeping areas are not screened.
How to reduce mosquito population?
  • Get rid of places where mosquitoes can breed e.g. all places that collect rain and where water is stagnant.
  • Inspect your environment daily for stagnant water.
  • Turn over or cover all water storage containers.
  • Clear blockages in drains.
  • Change water in household containers on alternate days.

Guest Blog: 5 Food Myths that are Detrimental to Your Health

Wednesday, 8 March 2017

Photo: Pixabay
It can be difficult to understand which “authorities” to trust when you are trying to become healthy. Some sources state one type of food is excellent for your health; another site might tell you that the same food is hazardous and can cause health issues. So, who should you trust? Sticking to a healthy diet is hard enough as it is, but it can be even more challenging because of the misinformation that is often posted on the internet. Keep reading as we show you what food myths are detrimental to your health. Some of these might surprise you!

● Products claiming to be “fat-free” or “low-fat” are trying to tell consumers that eating them will not make you fat. In reality, healthy fats are critical for a healthy diet. In the past, studies have suggested that eating less fat was essential for improving health and losing weight. This sparked many companies marketing this option and people believing that it was the best way to eat. In reality, foods that are processed to become artificially fat-free or low-fat are often less healthy than full-fat options. This is because they are stuffed with fillers, chemicals and sugar to substitute for the missing fat. Fat is not the enemy, and using healthy fats in your diet is critical for your overall health.

● Contrary to popular belief, eggs are not bad for you. A trend has been to eat egg whites only, but egg whites on their own are less beneficial for your health than the egg as a whole. The yolk is where the majority of the egg’s nutritional value comes from. Recent studies have stated that an egg will not increase your risk for heart disease like previously thought. Eggs are also an excellent source of protein. Eggs from free-range chickens who forage for food are the most nutritionally-rich.

● Not only will artificial sweeteners not help you lose weight, but they cause you to gain more weight than before. Typically, sweetening products increase your appetite and even make you crave more sugar and junk food. Additionally, it is believed that these sweeteners have several negative side effects, and can alter the way your body regulates your metabolism. Some people have even had severe health problems from consuming artificial sweeteners.

● Many people believe that when you eat calories at night, they can become more fattening than those eaten early in the day. This is not true. Calories are calories, and it does not matter what time you eat them. What matters are the quality of those calories you intake; nutrient-dense foods are the most beneficial to your health. Foods that spike your blood sugar levels are detrimental when eaten any time during the day. That includes sugar-laden foods, beverages, and processed foods; all of these should be eaten minimally.

● Wheat bread and whole grain bread are both said to be healthy. However, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, wheat bread typically has the same nutritional value as white bread. There are some great options for healthy bread, but you must be careful to look for products with real ingredients. Products labeled as “wheat bread” may have been altered or colored — processes which strip it of its nutrients — just so that it could be sold as wheat bread. Look on the label for “100% whole grain.”

Although there are great articles and well-researched sources online, it cannot all be trusted, so make sure that you do your research carefully before starting any health plan. Being thorough about your research from trusted sources is imperative. As you read more and more, you will find that common threads emerge that you can follow to successfully guide you in your journey to good health.

Guest Blog: Oral Health - A Considerable Factor in Slowing the Cognitive Decline in Older Adults

Wednesday, 1 March 2017

Scientists have long known that our ability to think fast and clear, also known as fluid intelligence, begins to decline as we age. While some changes appear naturally with aging, researchers believe that there is a close relationship between oral health and cognitive decline.

This basically came into the focus of scientists several years ago, when some medical professionals identified a correlation between dental and other health issues. Researchers discovered that untreated tooth decay and poor oral hygiene could increase the bacterial multiplication. These bacterial microbes could enter the bloodstream and lead to dementia, stroke, and heart disease. However, the scientists could not find a direct link between cognitive and dental health.

Although the evidences in this regard are still not definitive enough to prove that one causes the other, maintaining good oral hygiene and visiting dental clinics on a regular basis has shown to play a vital role in slowing the cognitive decline as people grow older.

Last year, the findings, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society focused on the link between oral health and cognition - two key areas of research. Around 36% of people aged over 70 years live with some degree of cognitive impairment.

Dr. Bei Wu, a scientist at the Duke University School of Nursing with her colleagues analyzed 56 research studies conducted between 1993 and 2013, studying the dental health of aged people and deviations in their cognitive health. They revealed several possible links:
  • Older adults struggling with cognitive problems, especially those with dementia, have a tendency to have higher rates of poor oral health.
  • Individuals with tooth decay, missing teeth, or gum disease had higher possibilities of developing poor cognitive health or dementia.
  • Poor nutrition and systemic diseases, like cardiovascular disease and diabetes may affect oral health and could be related to poorer cognitive status.
Another research study conducted by the University of Southampton and King’s College London found that periodontitis can become a leading problem among those with Alzheimer’s disease, as patients forget to take care of their dental health. The higher levels of antibodies to periodontal bacteria can lead to inflammation throughout the body, thus, raise the risk of dementia.

In this study, 59 participants with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease were included. Their blood samples were examined to measure the inflammatory markers. Oral health was also assessed, and after six months, 52 participants showed up for a follow-up appointment. The presence of periodontitis at baseline was linked to a six fold rise in the rate of cognitive decline over the six-month follow-up period. The results indicate that gum disease is connected with greater cognitive decline, perhaps linked to inflammatory response.

Though scientists are still collecting evidences to infer a common underlying cause of inflammation or deduce a causative relationship between oral health and cognition, various recent research findings have shown that dental problems in the elderly are associated with a greater risk of developing dementia. The presence of gum disease results in higher levels of inflammatory molecules that elevate the risk of many health issues viz. cognitive decline, cardiovascular disease, stroke, etc. Studies have also suggested that effective and regular oral treatment can reduce the levels of these molecules.

This can easily be deduced from the findings that it is essential for older adults to maintain good dental health self-care practices and receive adequate dental care.

Although there is no cure for dementia, there are few effective prevention tips to protect your brain and prolong your memory. These include: eating healthy, not smoking, exercising regularly, keeping your heart healthy, avoiding head and brain injuries, playing brain games (like puzzles), taking proper sleep, treating depression or other mental health condition, leading a cheerful life and avoiding social isolation.
