Bits & Bites #170: Health - Tips for Fever, Difficulty Conceiving, Healing Reactions and Blood Thinner v. Blood Cleanser

Sunday, 23 April 2017

Please email if you want to buy Shuang Hor products for your health.
Plan B
If you're suffering from High Fever, try this:

Remove Shuang Hor Lingzhi powder from the capsule and mix with warm water and sea salt. Apply the paste on your belly button. At the same time, put the Lingzhi powder under your tongue area and so that it is directly absorbed into your body system.


If a couple has Difficulty Conceiving, consider this:

- Do both husband and wife work in a stressful environment? If yes, their acidic body constitution make it more difficult to conceive. They should try to calm down and manage their stress. Otherwise, even if they manage to conceive, the baby won't be so healthy.
- Is the wife's vaginal discharge and menstruation pattern normal?
- If all appears normal and healthy, then try this formula - both the husband and wife take 12 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 6 sachets Yung Kien Pollen + 3 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein each, every day. Take for 1 month. Refrain from intercourse during this time to normalise the sperm and cleanse the womb. If the couple has budget consideration, then each can take 4 Lingzhi + 2 Pollen + 2 Protein a day.


Some tips on Healing Reactions

People with high blood pressure and high blood sugar problem - after consuming Lingzhi, the blood pressure and blood sugar readings may increase. When one takes Lingzhi at high dose, the blood circulation increases, causing blood pressure to also increase. Cholesterol reading may also increase temporarily. When blood circulates faster, your body system may shrink the blood vessels, hence the pressure shoots up. At the same time, due to the shrinkage of the blood vessels, one may feel cold. But it is ok. Even though the blood pressure can increase to as high as 180 mmHg (as part of the healing reaction), one would feel normal, without the usual symptoms of HBP such as spinning head, headache and vomiting.

People with liver problem - after consuming Lingzhi, may sometimes experience the GOT and GPT readings to increase a bit before coming down. It is normal.

People with cancerous tumour - after consuming Lingzhi, the size of the tumour may increase. The tumour that is formed is naturally "compressed" by our body. The tumour that is "attacked" by Lingzhi will "loosen" and thus the size looks bigger (MRI tests can only detect the size and not density). After some time, when the Lingzhi continues to work on the tumour and the immune cells "eat" the tumour, it will eventually shrink.


Blood Thinner v. Blood Cleanser

Drugs such are heparin and warfarin are blood Thinners. Patients with heart problems and diabetics take them to thin down their blood with the intention to prevent blood clots which lead to heart attacks and strokes. However, thinning down the blood just dilute it and does not remove the clots. Further, there are many side effects including bleeding and pain.
For example, if your Milo is too sweet, you add water to dilute it so you don't taste the sweetness. But the amount of sugar you consume is still the same.
Take Shuang Hor Lingzhi instead - this is a natural blood Cleanser. It removes the toxins and clots from your body. It cleans up the blood vessels and gets rid of lipids thereby giving you better blood circulation.

How to Handle PCOS and Testimony of How a Woman with PCOS Got Pregnant

Sunday, 16 April 2017

Every healthy woman is born with a pair of ovaries. Once she reaches puberty (reproductive age), the ovaries release an egg every month that becomes an embryo if fertilised by sperm, or is shed as menstrual blood if unfertilised.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition where there are growths of cysts in the ovaries. They disrupt the normal functions of the ovaries, leading to hormonal imbalances. This in turn leads to other serious medical problems such as diabetes, heart disease and infertility. It also changes the way a woman looks and feels, as she begins developing more masculine features.

Scientists don't yet fully understand what causes PCOS. However, it cannot be prevented because it is genetically-linked. Symptoms include:
  • acne
  • weight gain, trouble losing weight
  • thinning hair on the head
  • thicker facial and body hair
  • irregular periods
  • trouble conceiving
  • depression.
Generally, women with PCOS seek medical advice for these reasons:

1. Inability to Conceive

Conception can only take place when a woman has healthy eggs, which are released on a regular basis. With PCOS, the cysts in the ovaries interfere with egg production. This results in irregular periods, leading to problems with conception. The risks are higher in women who are older, overweight or have family history of infertility.

2. Insulin Resistance

Insulin is a hormone that helps metabolise sugar from the food we eat and transforms it into energy and cell renewal. People with insulin resistance have trouble metabolising sugar in the body. As a result, the sugar accumulates in the bloodstream instead of being used up. Over time, insulin resistance leads to diabetes, which damages body cells such as the nerves, kidneys, eyes and sexual organs.

In women with PCOS, the cells that are responsible for insulin production (beta cells) are not functioning as they should. Beta cells work to detect sugar in the bloodstream. When they are not working as they should, the body releases more insulin than is necessary. The additional sugar in the bloodstream is stored as fat.

3. Difficulty Losing Weight

For women with PCOS, losing weight seems an impossible task no matter how they manage their diet and exercise. This is related to the body's inability to metabolise insulin, as the excess sugar is not transferred to the abdomen and hips, increasing the risk of getting metabolic disease, thereby also putting them at a higher risk of heart disease and stroke.

Women with PCOS also have slower metabolic rates, so they need less calories daily compared to women without PCOS.

PCOS also disrupts the functioning of the hunger and appetite hormones (ghrelin and leptin), making these women feel hungry all the time. The sense of fullness is less sensitive hence the brain does not release signals to stop eating.

4. Increased Body Hair

The high levels of insulin in the bloodstream caused by PCOS causes the ovaries to make more testosterone (male hormones), causing these women to grow hair on the upper lip, chest, back, arms or legs.

Hirsutism, or excessive facial and body hair, happens when androgens (another male hormone) causes body hair to change from vellus hair (thin, light hair) to terminal hair (thick, dark hair).

Key Message

Many PCOS-related conditions go unnoticed because many women are unaware they have PCOS. Tackling the symptoms is only a short-term measure, as they will return for as long as the PCOS is not treated appropriately.

What is the Solution?

Treatment for PCOS is categorised into medications and lifestyle changes.

Medications are recommended for:

1) Menstrual irregularity

This increases the risk for endometrial cancer and iron deficiency. Doctors may recommend birth control pills, skin patch or vaginal ring containing a combination of oestrogen and progestin to regulate menstrual periods. But being on birth control medication means you will not be able to conceive while taking these medications.

2) For pregnancy purposes

Doctor may recommend clomiphene, to increase the production of eggs and increase chances of conception. If it doesn't work, the specialist may recommend follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone medications that are administered by injection to help with ovulation.

3) To reduce body hair

Doctor may recommend medications to control androgen production but it may cause birth defects in unborn babies.

4) To control insulin resistance and diabetes

Medications such as metformin that improve insulin resistance may be recommended to slow down the progress of diabetes.

Lifestyle changes are necessary to enjoy a good quality of life, as PCOS is not curable. Weight loss is important as obesity worsens insulin resistance, affects ovulation and has significant impact upon self-esteem. Exercise is very important to manage PCOS because it helps control blood sugar level.

Some tips to reduce daily calorie count:
  • Use a smaller plate to help reduce portion sizes.
  • Stick to 1 helping each time.
  • Choose complex carbs e.g. whole grain breads and cereals, whole wheat pasta, barley, brown rice and beans.
  • Avoid simple carbs e.g. fruit juice, cake, ice cream, pies cookies and doughnuts.
  • Avoid dairy products and refined products e.g. processed meats, fast foods, snacks and junk foods.
  • Check for deficiencies of magnesium, zinc, calcium, vitamin B, vitamin D and essential fatty acids.
(Source: Cysts in the ovary 28 June 2015; Managing PCOS 12 July 2015, Datuk Dr Nor Ashikin Mokhtar, Fit For Life)

You can see that it is very difficult to manage PCOS - you have to take medications, change your diet, and change your lifestyle. Medicines give you a lot side effects and there are long-term implications. Dietary and lifestyle changes are not only difficult to start, it's even harder to maintain and some of us don't have the luxury of time to make those changes.

A Better Solution?

Try Yung Kien Ganoderma and Yung Kien Pollen.

Here is the story of a friend who has PCOS. She approached me when she had difficulty conceiving - she tried for 10 years:


"Ms A suffers from PCOS since she was young. She has been taking birth control pills and many other medication to address this condition. 

She has difficulty conceiving after marriage. But after 5 years of trying and with the help of laparoscopy and fertility treatment of more than 6 months, she was eventually blessed with a beautiful daughter. That was 10 years ago when she was 30 years old. 

Since then, she has been trying to have another child, but without success. She is worried as the clock is ticking. Since July 2013 (at age 40), she decided to consume 12 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 6 sachets Yung Kien Pollen daily, for 3 months. 

Healing reactions: After 2 months, she experienced itchiness and rashes on the back of her thigh and knee, dark color stools and brownish discharge, but she felt that her immune system was stronger.

On the 4th month, she continued with the same dosage and also underwent laparoscopy procedure. By the 5th month, she was happily pregnant. Despite her age, the pregnancy is very smooth, she didn't experience any morning sickness, she hardly falls sick and she has good energy."

Ahhhhh.. a happy ending. The solution is simple, painless, doesn't require medication and lifestyle changes and it works! She regulates her hormones and addresses any vitamins/minerals deficiencies at the same time.

Guest Blog: 3 Tips to Help Moms Reduce Anxiety This Year

Wednesday, 5 April 2017

Photo courtesy of Pixabay by ninocare
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting an estimated 40 million adults (or about two out of every 10 people) according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Becoming a mother can lead to all sorts of anxiety, but if you already suffered from anxiety prior to having children, it feels like everything gets turned up to 11. And while we hear more about treating postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety can be just as paralysing.

Feelings of anxiety can wax and wane as your child/children grow, but work, schedules, practice, projects -- all of these can continue to contribute to a mother’s anxiety.

Anxiety can be difficult and scary at times, but it is actually a very treatable illness. If you’ve been feeling increased anxiety for any reason, here are some steps you can incorporate into your life to help tone down your anxiousness.

1. Begin a Daily Self-Care Practice

It might seem hard as a busy mom, but give yourself the gift of self-care this year. If self-care is a foreign concept for you, as it is for so many people, start out by scheduling specific times in your day for self-care, just like you would for business projects, play dates, or practices. Try an hour, or if that seems like a lot of time to you, you can start even smaller. Even if you start at five minutes and work your way up, you’ll eventually begin to notice how much better you feel after slowly implementing your own self-care practice into each day. Remember, too, that taking care of yourself will make it easier for you to take care of others.

Self care can be anything from taking time to exercise or meditate, getting a massage, or even taking time to read a book. And these should not be stolen moments but time that you are gifting yourself. In doing so, you will help ward off anxiety, and this benefits you and your family.

2. Learn to Soothe Yourself During a Panic Attack

If you’re someone who has ever suffered from a panic attack, you know all too well how terrifying it can be. If you find that your anxiety is through the roof and you begin to experience a panic attack at any point this year, there are some things you can do to help it pass quickly. When you feel a panic attack coming on, start by telling yourself, “I know what this is. This will not kill me. I’ve been through this before. This too shall pass.” Repeat this saying over and over to yourself until the panic attack is over. Throughout the panic attack, breathe slowly and deeply. Try to progressively relax the muscles in your body one at a time. If you find that your panic attacks are increasing, it’s time to reach out to a medical professional.

3. Get Support

We all need support from time to time. I’ll repeat: We all need support from time to time. It is not a sign of weakness. There is no shame in it. The strongest people among us are the ones who know when it’s appropriate to reach out for help - and because they have a solid support system they can turn to, they feel more secure during times of crisis. If you don’t already have a support system in place for yourself, it’s never too late to start finding those people. Who can you turn to? Your family? A close friend? A colleague? Your doctor? Someone at church? Don’t be afraid to ask for extra help when you need it. Many mothers will just “suck it up” and keep going through the motions when they are freaking out on the inside. It doesn’t have to be this way.

It’s not your fault if you suffer from anxiety. Anxiety is very common and is brought on by a complex list of factors that might include: genetics, brain chemistry, environment, life events, and personality. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, and it’s not something you have to suffer through each day. There are many options out there to take your mental and emotional health into your own hands. Just be wary of medications that can lead you down a dangerous path to addiction, which can cause even more problems. When you find ways to manage your anxiety, you are able to enjoy happier days with lower stress levels. And a happy mommy makes for a happy family.

Bits & Bites #168 - Testimonies: Diabetes, Lymph Nodes and Thyroid

Sunday, 2 April 2017

Locker & Loft
Email if you are looking for a safe solution to solve your diabetic, thyroid and lymph nodes problems.

Testimony: Diabetics with Wound on Toe

Ms L's friend, who works as a confinement lady, has a brother who is diabetic. When the slippers he wore caused a blister on his second toe, he went to the hospital to have it cleaned. After 1 month, the blister had become a hole right through the toe. The wound was infected by bacteria which ate through his bone. The doctor said it has to be amputated.
He applied Jia Hor Lingzhi powder directly to the wound. The colour of his skin turned lighter from the earlier blackish colour, and the wound started to dry up.
At the same time, he consumed 12 capsules Jia Hor Lingzhi + 24-26 capsules Yung Kien Pollen + 1 sachet Jia Hor Fiber everyday.
After 1 week, the wound shrank even smaller and the skin returned to reddish colour.
He stopped going to the hospital but instead cleansed the wound himself and continued to apply Lingzhi powder on the wound.
After another 2-3 weeks, he experienced further improvement.

Vertigo reaction - his sugar level went down very low for awhile. His sister made some glucose water for him to drink to bring up the sugar level. He also managed his dietary intake carefully.
During the time, they noticed a bone protruding out from the toe, which his sister pulled out for him. It didn't cause him pain and he could still move his toes. However, they noticed that the wound seemed to heal faster following that incident.
After 3 months, he didn't need to take insulin anymore, the oral medication has been cut down from twice to once a day and he continues to take 12 capsules Lingzhi a day.


Testimony: High Blood Sugar and Lingzhi

Ms L's 70 year old friend has high blood sugar level of around 8 mol/L. After taking medicine, the blood sugar level would drop to around 6 mmol/L and then would fluctuate up again, i.e. it's not stable.
She started to consume 3 capsules Jia Hor Lingzhi + 5 capsules Yung Kien Pollen a day. At the same time, she also changed her dietary habits. After 3 boxes of Jia Hor Twinpack (2-3 months), her blood sugar level dropped to 5-6 mmol/L and became very consistent. She is very happy with the result.


Testimony: Lymph Node Infection on Groin Area of 3 Year Old Girl

Ms B's 3 year old niece had a lymph node infection around her groin area. It was very painful. All the 3 doctors they consulted advised it should be operated on. Instead, Ms B mixed Jia Hor Lingzhi + Greenzhi Toothgel + Aquasense Hydrating Toner into a paste and applied it on the lump. Prior to application, the whole area was swollen and red. At night, she consumed 2 sachets Vitaking collagen. The next morning, the swelling on the surrounding area had subsided with only a smaller lump left.
Over the next 3 days, she consumed 1 sachet Vitaking in the morning and another at night. The swelling reduced further.
Following that, she was fed 1 sachet Vitaking a day and continued to apply the paste mix.
The whole thing fully subsided after 2 weeks.
She didn't need to undergo operation after all. If she had, the cost could be high and the recovery process and how smooth is the healing would be uncertain.


Testimony: Swollen Lymph Nodes and Suspected Blood Cancer

 A 13-year old girl with swollen lymph nodes was put on a 5-day antibiotic course. The swelling did not subside so the parents took her to Selayang Hospital. The blood test showed that her white blood cell count was only 2,870 WBC/mcL (normal range is 4,500-10,000).  One cause of lower than normal WBC count is viral infection (high WBC count can be due to attacks by bacteria). The antibiotics fed to her may kill her WBCs thereby lowering the WBC count further. Also, the antibiotics may create some immune system disorder (whereby Th1 and Th2 become not balanced) and the attacks by Th2 will cause her WBC to drop further. In many instances, the doctor will misdiagnose this as blood cancer.

Over the next few days, she was fed with antibiotics and painkillers. These 2 meds gave her gastric pain. The pain will likely trigger fever. True enough, her body temperature raised to 38'C. So, the doctor pumped her with more antibiotics and painkillers. Her stomach became even more painful. When Mr P visited her in the hospital, he advised that she mix 2 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein into 300 ml warm water, shake (not stir) thoroughly and immediately drink. After 5-10 minutes, take 2-3 sachets Yung Kien Pollen and 2-3 sachets Lactoberry, washed down with room temperature water. At the same time, do the 2-knuckle rub on the chest. Don't lie down horizontally as it may cause reflux. She burped a lot and felt much more comfortable after.

Taking too much antibiotics kill good bacteria, leaving behind too much bad bacteria in the colon, which can cause diarrhoea. Too much diarrhoea can cause the lips to dry up and crack. Diarrhoea will cause dehydration, which can result in the WBC count to drop further and body temperature unable to come down. In such situation, drink a lot of water to rehydrate. It can help to reduce the temperature. Also drink a lot of Luchun Lingzhi Tea or barley. The girl recovered after 2-3 days and was discharged on the 4th day. At the end of the day, the medical report only showed that she suffers from hypothyroidism. No other cause can be identified.

An interesting phenomenon to note is if you take high dose of 20 capsules Lingzhi when you have high fever, you won't feel cold and shivering. And neither will you feel great discomfort from the fever. The high temperature could be simply the body raising the temperature to kill the pathogens.


Testimony: Abnormal Thyroid and Swelling Around the Neck

Ms S has a friend, 45, who does freelance accounting work. Her work is very stressful. She suffered from abnormal thyroid problem. It's a general swelling on both sides of her throat, a form of thyroid that is neither hyper nor hypo, where the accumulation of water / air made the neck area swell. It's likely caused by stress and hormone imbalance.

She took a herbal remedy prescribed by a sinseh. But after many months, there was no improvement.
She underwent hormone therapy as prescribed by a clinic. It was costly and also didn't work.
She tried e-Excel products for 3 months. There was no effect at all and she spent more than RM3,000.
She took up qi gong for a course of 10 lessons costing RM900. It didn't work.
The swelling got more severe. The doctors in Gleneagles hospital said it is her choice whether she want to undergo surgery. The swelling should subside after the water is removed, but it will relapse.

When she went for holidays in Japan, she took along antibiotics and 1 box Lactoberry + 1 box Yung Kien Pollen. After she came back, she felt that perhaps Yung Kien Pollen has helped her a lot during the holidays.

Meantime, her father who is undergoing kidney dialysis takes 1 bottle Yung Kien Ganoderma a day. He observed a lot of improvement. Encouraged by that, she decided to take (4 capsules Jia Hor Lingzhi + 6 capsules Yung Kien Pollen) x 2 times a day. After 1 month, the swelling has subsided to only about 5% of the original condition.

Guest Blog: Heavy Alcohol Use Alters the Adolescent Brain

Wednesday, 29 March 2017
Research undertaken by scientists at the Universiti Teknologi Mara has revealed that teens as young as 15 in Kuala Lumpur, are consuming alcohol. The study, entitled Alcoholism among youth in Kuala Lumpur, indicated that almost half the respondents aged 15 to 24 had consumed alcohol, with 28 per cent of the group aged only 17. Far from being a passing issue, the consumption of alcohol, especially in large amounts, has serious long-term consequences, with another important study showing that heavy drinking during adolescence changes the structure of adolescents’ brains.

The second study mentioned above, carried out at the University of Eastern Finland and published in the journal Addiction, used magnetic resonance imaging to observe the brain structure of young, healthy adults who drank heavily and who had consumed large amounts of alcohol in their adolescence, comparing their results with those of similarly aged adults who were not heavy drinkers.

Three cross-sectional studies were undertaken on participants over a 10-year period (in the years 2005, 2010 and 2015). At the start of the study, participants were aged between 13 and 18. All participants had one thing in common: they were all good students, and there was no substantial difference in mental health issues between the two groups. Although the ‘drinking group’ indulged in alcohol frequently, none of them were considered to have an alcohol addiction disorder.

The magnetic resonance results showed big differences between the two groups. Those who drank heavily had less grey matter volume in two parts of the brain: the anterior cingulate cortex and the right insula. The former plays an important role in controlling impulses, and when its structure is changed, there could be a greater risk for substance abuse. Changing the structure of the insula, meanwhile, may signify reduced sensitivity to the negative subjective effects of alcohol, which also increases the chance of substance abuse disorders.

The researchers concluded that drinking heavily during adolescence disrupts the process of maturation, which occurs during one’s youth. It is not known how this occurs, and it has been suggested that some negative changes to the brain structure might be reversed if alcohol consumption is reduced.

The problem with youth drinking is that although teens generally drink less frequently than adults, when they do, they consume larger amounts. When youths go out, they consume in the region of five beverages in a single night, which amounts to binge drinking. The latter can lead to hospitalisation, and even death. Heavy drinking can also lead to risky behaviours, which can lead to the spreading of disease and can increase the risk of accidents on the road, falls, burns, drowning, etc. Drinking can also affect other aspects of a youth’s life, decreasing their academic performance, increasing the chance of teen pregnancy and STDs, and affecting relationships with friends and family.

Experts in the field note that the most important influences which can push the youth to drink, include family, friends, schools, community and society at large. At this point in their lives, they can be more prone to taking risks and feel a need to assert greater independence from their parents. Youths can also drink to evade the stress of juggling several demands (including academic and social obligations). Those with family problems are at a higher risk for alcohol use, as are those with authority figures battling alcohol or substance abuse problems.

Specific behavioural problems also tend to increase the risk of alcohol use in the youth. These include delinquency, being overly impulsive, and having a strong desire for new, intense sensations.

Families can work together to prevent youth alcoholism by maintaining a strong bond with their children. Limits should be set, yet communication should be encouraged. Schools and the community should also work to battle youth drinking by increasing awareness and sending the message that underage drinking has serious consequences for one’s health and future. Youths should be provided with alcohol-free places where they can meet and enjoy themselves and help should be easily accessed by any youth who fears they may have a drinking problem.

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.
