Exclusive: Inflammation of the Brain

Sunday, 13 January 2019




What is the difference between acute inflammation and chronic inflammation?

Acute inflammation is a short term process occurring in response to tissue injury. The body can heal itself quite quickly.
Chronic inflammation is an inflammatory reaction that lasts for months or years. If the body is unable to heal an acute inflammation it will become chronic, which is more dangerous to our health.

What medical test markers do you look at to find out if you have acute / chronic inflammation?

Chronic inflammation in the brain is caused by diets high in fat and cholesterol, ageing, high level of stress, and also due to genetics. It leads to inflammation of the Central Nervous System, and eventually Alzheimer's Disease (build-up of beta-amyloid protein) and Parkinson disease (low and falling dopamine levels). The central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord, and surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid.

When you take a wrong diet, and as you age or under stress, your body will automatically produce a lot of free radicals. The more free radicals are present in your body, the older you will look.

What is Free Radical?

Free radical is the key culprit of brain inflammation. It is a molecule which has a single unpaired electron and hence is unstable in nature. It needs to steal an electron from our body cells to stabilise itself. After losing this electron, our body cells become unstable, and they will die very fast.

The 3 enemies that we commonly know are virus, bacteria and cancer cells. Free radicals are equally, if not more harmful, than these 3. If your body is full of free radicals, your body will be more easily exposed to virus, bacteria and cancer cells. The reason is when the free radicals attack your WBC, and their numbers are eroded, your immune system is lower, thus your body becomes more susceptible to pathogens.

The mechanism to reduce free radicals is called Anti-oxidation. When free radicals are reduced, the chances of normal cells going haywire or dying is lesser. You will look better and your body can function better.

How do you get free radicals?

Every cell has a mitochondria. When you breath, mitochondria will create energy for the purpose of cell activities. During this process, it will produce 2 types of free radicals, or waste by-products, called Superoxide radical and Hydroxyl radical. When these free radicals steal electrons from your cells, attacking and damaging the DNA nucleus, it can cause you health conditions like stroke, cancer or arteriosclerosis (hardening of arteries).

How does your body reduce free radicals?

In our body, there are a few enzymes with anti-oxidation capability, i.e. able to eliminate free radicals. It's called a Multi-Enzymatic Anti-Oxidation System, comprising of these main enzymes:

a) Glutathione
b) Superoxide dismutase (SOD)
c) Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD)
d) Catalase.

When these enzymes are sufficient in your body, they can naturally get rid of the free radicals your body produce - a check and balance system. 

For example, a person suffering from an inherited disorder called G6PD deficiency has red blood cells (RBCs) that cannot transport oxygen effectively throughout the body. Their RBCs are destroyed faster than their body can replace them. These people become anaemic.

Likewise, when the free radicals attack the cells of the central nervous system or brain, it causes inflammation, and associated diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson.

If you can enhance this multi-enzymatic anti-oxidation system in your body, you will have less free radicals and can retard ageing, look younger, be more energetic and are less likely to fall sick.

What foods provide anti-oxidant?

Foods that contain vitamins C and E, green tea, pollen (as it provides enzymes and coenzymes), ginkgo (good for the brain), and Lingzhi.

How does Lingzhi work to eliminate free radicals?

1) Continuously take 12 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma for 3-6 months. It is scientifically proven that Lingzhi is able to increase the level of the above-mentioned enzymes in our blood system, because Lingzhi has a healing ability.

2)There are more than 200 types of ganoderic acid in the Triterpenoid component of a Lingzhi. In the world, only Shuang Hor has the technology to extract the most number of ganoderic acid, where it can extract up to 9 types. Ganoderic A, B, C and D are proven to be able to reduce free radicals.

3) Macrophage is one of the key components of our immune system. If it is attacked by free radicals, it will die massively and our immune system will drop drastically. Lingzhi can protect macrophages from being oxidised. 

4) A research report from Beijing University proved that Lingzhi can reduce brain oxidation process (protect brain cells from being attacked by free radicals). One way to check how good is your brain's health is your memory level. If you are getting more and more forgetful, it means your brain cells are deteriorating drastically.

Scientific Experiments

A few experiments were conducted to verify how Ganoderma works to reduce inflammation of the brain.

Study 1


A study by Sun, et al. was published in the Neural Regeneration Research Journal in 2017. It was found that Lingzhi polysaccharides...

Exclusive: Inflammation of the Kidney

Sunday, 6 January 2019



How well your kidney functions depends on the ability of the glomeruli. The glomeruli is part of a filtration system that can filter out excess albumin, creatinine, urea etc from your body. There are about 1 million glomeruli in each kidney.

What are the basic functions of a kidney?

1) Filter blood and remove waste.
2) Control body fluid balance and balance of electrolytes.
3) Produce renin and regulate blood pressure.
4) Produce erythropoietin hormones.

What are the usual tests for kidney?

a) Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test.
b) Creatinine.
c) GFR (glomerular filtration rate).
d) Uric acid.

Please click on this link for details..
http://www.pingofhealth.com/2018/08/bits-bites-208-health-tcm-kidney-and.html

What cause chronic inflammation of the kidney?

a) 3-Highs (hypertension, high cholesterol and high blood glucose)
b) Auto-immune diseases such as lupus
c) Diet e.g. salty food
d) Medicines such as NSAIDs
e) Genetics
f) Stress.

If you don't address these causes, they will lead to inflammation that damage your kidney, causing them to shrink and finally chronic kidney failure.

Exclusive: Inflammation of the Gastrointestinal System

Sunday, 23 December 2018


The stomach is an important organ of our body. If it doesn't function well, the food we eat cannot be fully digested and absorbed. You may eat a lot but your body would still be starved of nutrients. Many people have the wrong impression that when they eat a lot, it means they have a lot of nutrition. However, what they eat may not be translated to what the body receives.

For people with indigestion and bloating problem, one simple solution is to chew each mouthful of food at least 25 times. This gives opportunity for the saliva in the mouth to break down the starch and start the digestion process.

Here is an easy way to test the health of your colon and intestines:
- Do you frequently have diarrhoea or watery stools?
- Do the food you eat come out half digested in your stools?
If yes, then it means the health of your digestive system is bad.
According to TCM theory, to improve the health of small intestines, massage the side of hand and continue until the pain goes away. To improve the health of large intestines, press the tip of the side of index finger.

In order to protect your stomach, we must first seek to understand what cause gastrointestinal (GI) problems. The stomach's body clock is from 7 am - 9 am. During this period, the stomach works actively. Stomach acid is released and it needs food to digest. If you don't eat during this period, the acid will attack the stomach lining instead. Over long-term, when the lining is eroded, one gets stomach ulcer.

The existing GI problem will be worsened if you take painkillers. This is because the painkillers block the enzymes of the stomach from producing stomach mucosa, thus exposing the lining to stomach acid.
Click on this link for more info and a solution..
http://www.pingofhealth.com/2018/05/bits-bites-205-health-painkillers.html

Causes of GI Problems

(a) Bacterial infections e.g. H. Pylori bacteria.
(b) Genetic.
(c) Stress. In fact, stress is a common culprit to all kinds of major diseases.
(d) Eating habits. For example, parents who tend to skip breakfast would also pass this habit on to their children. Others include regular consumption of spicy/sour food together with cold water, or oily food and meat with cold drinks or taking a lot of fried food.
(e) Drugs like painkillers.

All the above contribute to GI problems, which will eventually develop into mucosa inflammation (cells of the stomach wall starts to inflame). This is the initial stage of stomach ulcer. That's why we highly encourage people suffering from GI problems to drink Jia Hor Soya Protein because it can help to form a layer of mucosa. You can add a little apple cider for taste (which is alkaline in nature).

If the condition becomes even more serious, the inflammation and gastric attacks become ulcers. The pain from the ulcer is not only confined to the stomach area, but also spreads to the back section. It's easily mistaken for heart attack. The ulcer will turn into gastrointestinal cancer if left untreated.

Interpretation from TCM point of view

Exclusive: Inflammation of the Liver

Sunday, 16 December 2018

The diagram above shows the location of the liver, spleen, pancreas, gallbladder and duodenum in our body.

Liver is the only organ in the body which has no nerves. Hence it would not be able to signal to the brain if it is damaged. Unlike for example, when gallstones block the bile duct, it would give a feeling of sharp pain around the upper right portion of abdomen and also on the right shoulder blade on the back. If the block is caused by a tumour, on top of the pain, the stools that are passed out are grey / pale colour. But the signals for liver disorders are not so direct.

Testimony
Cancer of this area is very difficult to treat. A lady has breast cancer which spread to pancreatic cancer and wanted to consume Lingzhi. However, due to the location of the cancer, after consuming only 1 capsule of Lingzhi, she was so bloated that she couldn't breath and had to be hospitalised and administered with oxygen. Thus, even though she has money, it doesn't necessarily mean that she could take Lingzhi to manage her health condition.

Stages of Liver Health

As the condition of a healthy normal liver deteriorates, it goes through the stages of Fibrosis (mild scarring of tissue), Cirrhosis (hardening) and finally Hepatocellular carcinoma (most common type of primary liver Cancer).

Causes of Liver Disease 

When these factors are present, they trigger chronic inflammation which eventually lead to various causes of liver diseases:

(a) Viral infections, which commonly cause Hepatitis A, B, C, D and E.

(b) Alcohol.

(c) Long term consumption of drugs. Western drugs contain a lot fillers and binders which need to be detoxed by the liver. This burden on the liver function will eventually cause fibrosis.

(d) Stay up late. The liver detox time is 1-3 am. When we are resting, the liver can detox. But when the liver doesn't rest well, it cannot detox. If you are able to have a deep sleep during these 2 hours, it's as if you have had 6 hours of sleep. But if you don't sleep well during this time, you will still feel tired even after many hours of sleep replacement later.

Detox means the flushing out of toxins, which will flow into the kidney, and be stored there until eliminated from the body via urination / bowel movement.

One of the functions of liver is to convert carbohydrate to glucose to be used as energy. The unused energy is converted to glycogen and stored in the liver. Liver also converts protein to amino acid and fats to fatty acids. Liver will also convert toxins to non-toxic substance. The residual toxins will be brought to kidney. In fact, the liver performs more than 500 vital functions.

(e) Stress. From TCM point of view, stress traps the qi in the liver, causing it to loose its function over long-term.

(f) Obesity.

(g) Fatty liver.

Symptoms of Liver Disease

Some common symptoms of liver-related problems (from both TCM and Western way of diagnosis):

Exclusive: Inflammation of the Lungs

Sunday, 9 December 2018

The lungs comprise of the trachea, bronchus, bronchioles and alveoli. There is approximately 350 million alveoli and 30,000 bronchioles in each lung. Alveoli are tiny sacs within our lungs that allow gas to move and be exchanged between the lungs and bloodstream. When we breath, we take air into the trachea all the way into the alveoli where oxygen is exchanged with carbon dioxide. 

The lungs is the first organ that "connects" the inner organs of our body to the outside world, as when we breath, the air from outside enters our body system through the lungs. The air contains virus and pathogens. Thus when your lungs is weak, you get infected and fall sick easily.

What Affect Lungs Health

The health of our lungs is affected by:

(a) Environmental pollution e.g. while cleaning the house
(b) Virus / bacterial infections
(c) Smoke
(d) Radiation therapy.

Our lungs will be inflamed and damaged from prolonged exposure to these elements. When this happens, the lungs will start to lose its function. Premature babies tend to have weaker lungs, because lungs is the last organ to be developed in the womb.

Common diseases of the lungs relate to auto-immune system disorders (AISD). Asthma is one of the most common disease in this category. When foreign substances enter the body, they cause the trachea and bronchi to become inflamed, the air passage becomes narrow and one will have difficulty breathing. Doctors treat by prescribing inhalers containing steroid, which work by suppressing the actions of T-cells. This eases the attacks, trachea passage opens and the symptoms of asthma disappear.

A news release by World Health Organisation on 2 May 2018 states that 90% of the world population breathe polluted air. We can pick and choose the food we eat and the water we drink, and choose a healthier alternative. But we cannot choose to breath only healthier air instead of dirty air.

New data reveals that we breathe air containing high levels of pollutants like black carbon which penetrate deep into the lungs and cardiovascular system. WHO estimates that around 7 million people die every year from exposure to fine particles in polluted air that lead to diseases such as stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) and respiratory infections, including pneumonia.

Exclusive: Inflammation Causing Heart Attack and Stroke

Sunday, 2 December 2018


This article talks about how Lingzhi helps reduce cerebral ischemic injury (CII), as extracted from page 11 of the presentation by Ms Yu-Chi Cheng in 2018. A study was published in 2014 in the online Journal of Ethnopharmacology by Zhou, et al.. In the study, Ganoderma lucidum is shown to reduce the impact of ischemic brain damage by reducing brain cell apoptosis and reducing inflammatory response.

An inflammatory response occurs when tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat, or any other cause. The damaged cells release chemicals including histamine and prostaglandins. These chemicals cause blood vessels to leak fluid into the tissues, causing swelling.

The conclusion of the study states, "Our findings indicate that Ganoderma Lucidum Polysaccharides protects against cerebral ischemic injury by inhibiting apoptosis by downregulating caspase-3 activation and modulating Bcl-2 / Bax ratio."

Let's seek to understand what this finding means:

1. Cerebral ischemic injury causes a condition of insufficient blood flow to the brain. When the brain doesn't have sufficient blood, brain cells will die due to lack of oxygen. Massive death of brain cells can cause stroke.

2. Apoptosis is the death of cells which occurs as a normal and controlled part of an organism's growth or development. In other words, apoptosis is a form of cell death in which a programmed sequence of events leads to the elimination of cells without releasing harmful substances into the surrounding area. Apoptosis plays a crucial role in developing and maintaining the health of the body by eliminating old cells, unnecessary cells, and unhealthy cells.

Exclusive: Inflammation of the Heart and Blood Vessels

Sunday, 25 November 2018

This article talks about how Lingzhi can protect the heart tissues and reduce the burden on myocardial cells, thereby preventing heart failure.


Typical causes of blood circulatory problems include formation of thrombi, fats and LDL cholesterol against artery walls.

Typical ways that conventional medical doctors use to overcome blood circulation blockages are:
(a) Prescribing blood thinners e.g. heparin or warfarin.
(b) Performing an angioplasty procedure and placing a stent inside the coronary artery.
(c) Undergoing an artery bypass surgery.

They all carry varying degrees of side effects and levels of risks. They are not safe solutions and not for long-term.

-----------------------------------

Symptoms which indicate that oxygen flow to the Heart is low (according to TCM):
- Lips turn darker colour.
- Forehead complexion darkens.

What you can quickly do:
Open up 20 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma, mix with warm water, and drink immediately. Continue for a few days. The dark colour will slowly lighten back as your health improve.

What can you do (TCM tips):
