Exclusive: Lingzhi and Inflammation: Presentation by Ms Yu-Chi Cheng

Sunday, 18 November 2018


I had the opportunity to attend a talk by Ms Yu-Chi Cheng in June 2018. She expounded on how Lingzhi works to prevent and protect against the main cause of many diseases in the modern world nowadays - which is chronic inflammation.

She is a highly qualified expert with many credentials to her name:
  • Dietitian of Double Crane Enterprise, Taiwan.
  • Bachelor or Science, China Medical University Department of Nutrition, Taiwan.
  • Master of Science, Taipei Medical University School of Nutrition and Health Sciences.
  • Specialist Dietitian of Renal Nutrition.
  • Obesity Dietitian.
  • Professional Health Food Engineer.
  • Senior Professional and Technical Certified Dietitian.
In this article, I like to share with you some snippets of her presentation:

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

Where do many of the diseases in our body come from?
It starts from chronic inflammation in our body.
It is found that Lingzhi can effectively counter many types of inflammatory situation and thus provides an excellent single solution for many diseases, from head to toe.

Why do we fall sick?
There are 2 factors that we cannot control - Ageing and Genetics. They will create situations of chronic inflammation and diseases eventually.
There are many other factors that we can control which also create chronic inflammation - Dietary habit, Lifestyle habits, late Sleeping habits, Pressure and Pollution.

Indications of inflammation include:
(i) On body surface - redness, swelling, heat and pain.
(ii) Inside the body - depletion of energy, accelerated ageing process of body cells, mutation into cancer cells.

Long term disregard of the symptoms may lead to serious consequences - a minor cut / trauma on the skin service may eventually lead to tissue necrosis when the inflammation spreads. In this instance, Lingzhi's ability to handle these inflammatory situations is very good and thus presents a multi-functional solution for most diseases.

In fact, in the conditions of our body between the state of Health (20% of world population) and Illness (5% of world population), there is a very huge number of world population in the category called Pre-Illness (75%).

There are many symptoms of inflammation before we reach the stage of feeling so sick that we need to consult a doctor. Unfortunately, many of us are unaware that these are early signs of inflammation, for example:

Bits & Bites #211 - Testimonies: General Health Maintenance

Sunday, 11 November 2018

Email askfuiping@gmail.com if you are looking for a safe solution to solve your various health problems.

Ming Chu
Testimony: Various Minor Health Problems and General Health

Ms TT has been consuming Shuang Hor products for more than 10 years since she was 31 years old. Background of her past health condition: She could not sleep well at night, regularly having dreams of falling from tall buildings, falling from the sky and being chased by ghosts and dogs. She would wake up very tired. After lunch, she would have to steal short naps in the toilet. She got angry easily and her husband bore the brunt of her anger. Her appetite was poor - she usually could not finish the food she ordered. But an hour later, she would feel hungry again and over-ordered food which she could not finish. She also had bloated stomach problem if she did not eat something immediately when she felt hunger pangs. But then the pain in her stomach made it very difficult for her to eat.

She was prescribed with vitamin B complex by the doctor but she stopped when the consumption made her feel very heaty. She used to consume vitamin E irregularly.

She encountered 2 serious conditions which prompted her to really look into her health. She had numbness on the right side of her body. She also had one very serious episode of period pain where she had to take an injection to relieve the pain.

Because of that, she decided to take 2 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma (YK) each time, twice a day.

Vertigo reaction: Felt feverish after 3 days. She dosed up to 8 YK + 16 capsules Yung Kien Pollen.
She felt heaviness on her head, urticaria on her legs. She had no appetite at all for 1 whole day.
The discomfort lasted for 1 week.

After that, she felt completely different. She woke up feeling very fresh, her complexion was better, there was no more bloated stomach problem, she has normal appetite and she seldom has dreams anymore.

Now her maintenance dosage is 2-4 Jia Hor Lingzhi + 5-10 Yung Kien Pollen. She increases the dosage whenever she feels unwell.

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

Testimony: Fatigue and General Health Maintenance

Ms L's friend's husband, 36, works as a products delivery driver. He complained about feeling very tired. He was very against supplements but after Ms L's explanation, he accepted and started to consume. During the first week, he consumed 4 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 10 capsules Yung Kien Pollen a day, divided into 2 times.
During the 2nd week, he increased his dose of Yung Kien Ganoderma to 6 capsules a day. After 2-3 days at this dose, he had diarrhoea up to 5-6 times a day. He was a little worried but was assured after speaking with Ms L. He included 4 Lactoberry a day. Everything went smoothly.
In the 3rd week, he increased to 8 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma a day. He was very happy because he had lost 5 kg during the 3 weeks.
In the 4th week, he increased to 12 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma a day. All was well.

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

Testimony: The Elderly and Lingzhi

Mr P's father-in-law, 81, does not observe a healthy dietary habit and lacks exercise. However, he has been taking Lingzhi for almost 20 years. He drove back to his hometown Rembau with his wife about 2 weeks ago. They usually break for coffee half way there. That day, after coffee, when he went to the toilet, he was still not out half an hour later. With the help of a doctor who was there, the wife eventually broke down the toilet door. They discovered him on the floor - weak, trembling, in cold sweat and couldn't find the strength to get up.

The doctor placed him on a chair and checked him. He was of the view that it was not a stroke as he could still talk and his blood circulation was ok. He suspected it could be blockage of the nerve system - causing him to not be able to get up after squating down in the toilet. His wife kept feeding him Yung Kien Ganoderma. After 20 minutes, he was more stable and drove on to Rembau. He consulted the doctor as he was still feeling unwell. He could walk but was shaky. The doctor did not prescribe any medication or operation; just rest.

When his son fetched him back to KL the next day, Mr P gave him a massage on various key meridian points on his feet and thighs. It was very painful, indicating there were indeed certain blockages. He felt much relief after 15 minutes of massage. He could walk without the aid of the walking stick. Mr P advised him to take 12 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma per day and go for acupuncture 3 times a week. He did not need to be hospitalised. He was already feeling better after 1 week.

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

Testimony: Difficulty Sleeping and Lingzhi

Ms PW's friend bought a bottle of Jia Hor Lingzhi as a Chinese New Year gift for her mother. Her mother tends to wake up at 2-3 am to urinate and subsequently, would have difficulty falling back to sleep. Amazingly, after 2-3 days of consuming 2 capsules Jia Hor Lingzhi a day, she was able to fall back asleep easily. Her mother was very happy and started to introduce Lingzhi to her friends.

Exclusive: Lingzhi & Anti-Inflammation - CRP and ESR

Sunday, 4 November 2018


Inflammation in the body can be seen from medical test results. If these 2 readings are high, you will feel quite uncomfortable. However, the readings are not specific - they only indicate there is inflammation in the body, but is not able to identify which part exactly.

1) CRP (C-Reactive Protein)
CRP is a blood test marker for testing if there is acute inflammation in the body. CRP is produced in the liver. Normal CRP level is below 3.0 mg/dL. A high CRP means there is inflammation your arteries. It is the initial response of the body to harmful stimuli. It serves to protect and repair the body against something damaging.

2) ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate)
This is a common haematology test to measure chronic inflammation. The normal range is 0-22 mm/hr for men and 0-29 mm/hr for women. Chronic inflammation include those diseases in the "itis" category and conditions caused by over-active immune system.
ESR means the blood flow to a certain area becomes more because when there's inflammation, blood will send platelets, RBC and WBC there.

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

Some comparison between Chinese and Western treatments

Traditional Chinese medicine may be able to help you but there are 2 disadvantages.

(i) It is very difficult to identify a good supplier because they come from many sources and not all of their efficacy and safety can be independently verified. Depending on preparation, some contain heavy metals or sulphur. However, the advantage of TCM meds is they do not have so much side effects.

(ii) Unlike Western treatment, the nature of TCM treatment is that it does not have the ability to give you an accurate reading of your condition.

On the other hand, Western doctors can tell you exactly what problem you have. However, the consultation charges are expensive. Further, the drugs prescribed can only help with symptomatic treatment and create more problem after long-term consumption.

Some symptoms are easier to be explained from TCM way. By looking at the condition of the face, skin, nails, hair etc, we can quite accurately tell which body organ is damaged.
But other symptoms are clearer to be explained based on medical reports.

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

It is common for doctors to advice their patients not to take their medicines together with supplements, because they don't want the patients to blame their drugs for being not effective. Those who are educated and knowledgeable, will know what to do. But for consumers who refuse to learn or seek advice, it is their choice. They can decide not to take.

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

An Alternative Solution 

Getting a reading of your CRP and ESR can give you information on the level of inflammation in your body. Unfortunately it won't be able to identify exactly which area it is. So how do you address the problem when the figure is high?

Bits & Bites #210 - Testimonies: Stroke and Heart Attack

Sunday, 21 October 2018

Email askfuiping@gmail.com if you are looking for a safe solution to solve your various health problems.


Libra
Testimony: Coronary Heart Disease and Stroke

Mr E's friend started to take Lingzhi in Feb 2016, consuming only 2 capsules Jia Hor Lingzhi a day. She wasn't consistent with her consumption.
She attended many meetings to learn more about health and products. She started to take high dosage since April 2016, taking 20 Lingzhi + 5 sachets Yung Kien Pollen + 2 Vitaking + 2 Lactoberry + 2 Jia Hor Soya Protein, twice a day.
On 12 April 2016, she had a stroke, was admitted to the hospital and had 3 angioplasty done. She continued with the same dosage until her first checkup in July 2016. The doctor reduced her medication from 7 types to 5 types and her glucose level reduced from 9.7 to 8.8.
After attending Dr Chen's talk, she continued with the same dosage of 20 Lingzhi + 5 sachets Yung Kien Pollen + 2 Vitaking + 2 Lactoberry + 2 Jia Hor Soya Protein until the 2nd checkup on 19 Sept 2016. The doctor further reduced her medication from 5 types to 4 types. Her high blood pressure pills dosage reduced from 90 mg to 75 mg. Her blood thinning pills reduced by 20mg.
She continued with the same dosage until the next checkup on 15 November 2016.

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

Testimony: Heart Attack

Mr E said 6 years ago his mother suffered from a heart attack.
3 of the main arteries in her heart had blockages of 65%, 50% and 50%. She went for a triple bypass operation. During the recovery period, the scar healed quickly and very well because she consumed Vitaking, so much so that from afar, the scar cannot be detected.
Following that, for 8 months, everyday she consumed 8 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 16 capsules Yung Kien Pollen + 2 Vitaking + 4 Jia Hor Soya Protein + 2 Jia Hor Fiber CEO Cafe Coffee + Luchun Lingzhi TeaLactoberry was not launched at that time.
He is very grateful to know about Shuang Hor products because over the 6 years of consumption, her health has recovered significantly.
In the past, her mother used to consume 12 tablets of medication from IJN (Institut Jantung Negara), under the advice of Dr Akmal. Now she only consumes 3-5 tablets of medication.
After 4 years of taking Shuang Hor products, Dr Akmal advised his mother to undergo renal hypertension therapy whereby a tube (with diameter smaller than a straw) will be inserted through an artery in her thigh towards her kidney, and a little electric current will be used to "kill" certain arteries of her kidney so that water cannot come out through the kidneys, because that is causing her water retention problem. This is actually the side effects of many years of taking medication.
However, till to-date, she never did undergo renal hypertension therapy. Because at the time doctor advised her to do the therapy, she consumed 4 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma2 + 16-24 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + Vitaking + Fiber etc.
Vertigo reaction: More bowel movements, feelings of fatigue.
Now she has reduced her dosage to maintenance dose of 3-5 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma per day.

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

Testimony: Stroke

Mr N said that a 75 year old man had a stroke and was admitted into the HDU ward of Assunta Hospital for 3 days on 12 June. He started taking Lingzhi on his second day there. His blood pressure shot up to 290 mmHg. Mr N was worried that his blood vessels would burst and he would go into coma. Hence he advised the man to consume as many Lingzhi as possible because such extremely high blood pressure level is not easily regulated with western drugs. He took up to 50 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma2 (YK2) on Day 1 and 40 YK2 on Day 2. By Day 3 he was back to the normal ward. He consume 20 YK2 a day. He was discharged by Day 6.
At home, he consumed 5 YK2 + 15 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 2 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein + 2 sachets Yung Kien Pollen + 1 sachet Vitaking + 6 sachets Lactoberry.

After about 1.5 months, he could walk and go back to work. The family had arranged for a maid to take care of him and also a wheelchair but it was hardly used. He had good stamina.

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

Testimony: Stroke

A Myanmar lady's father, 73, suffered from stroke. It was a big blood clot. He cannot speak and was in a coma. He was fed only through tubes. He was advised to take 10 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 20 capsules Yung Kien Pollen + 2 sachets CEO Cafe Coffee (without sugar) Lactoberry a day. The 2 sachets coffee are divided 4-5 times throughout the day and each time when it is brewed, 2-3 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma are added in. After waiting till the coffee cooled down, he was spoon-feed.

After about 1 week, her father regained consciousness. He still cannot talk but he can move and feels stronger.
Vertigo reaction: start to pass out solid stools. Under TCM theory, the Heart and Small Intestines are "linked" along the same meridian point. The stools were previously watery because the small intestines cannot absorb food and there's also a lot of bad bacteria in the large intestines.  At the same time, the heart has no strength and thus, he has difficulty talking. After taking Lingzhi, the stools start to become solid when his absorption is better, the colon has more good bacteria and the heart starts to get supply of energy. The strength returns and he will regain his speech.

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

Testimony: Stroke and a 76-Year Old Man

Ms PH's father, 76, suddenly collapsed on Friday night. The sides of his lips turned black, his forehead turned darker in colour, his body was weak, he was half conscious and half-paralysed, he couldn't talk and his tongue couldn't move. He had been complaining of water retention problem a few days ago. Ms PH's cousin who is a qualified acupuncturist went to the house to give him treatment. His blood pressure was 178 mm/Hg. After feeding him 1 bottle Yung Kien Ganoderma and the acupuncture, his condition was quite stable.

Nevertheless, the family decided to send him to SJMC on Saturday. He was admitted to the ICU. He was fed with 1 bottle Yung Kien Ganoderma throughout the day on Saturday, by opening the capsules and dissolving the powder with some water before feeding him. This was done without the doctor's knowledge. By the end of the day, his blood pressure was down to 166/75 mm/Hg.

On Sunday, he was moved out to normal ward. He was also fed with 1 bottle Yung Kien Ganoderma throughout the day without the doctor's permission. His pressure fell further to 123/73 mm/Hg. He could talk already. He was discharged on Monday. He is now on maintenance dose of 8 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma a day, together with other Shuang Hor products. He can walk and bathe himself, However, his memory is not so good.

Guest Blog: Nutrients and Foods Which Keep Your Teeth Healthy


Most of us dutifully brush our teeth every day and know we should be flossing and visiting our dentist for regular check-ups. We also know that nutrition is essential for our overall health. However, not so many of us think of what foods are specifically good for maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

Furthermore, the health of our teeth and gums has a huge impact on our bodily health. The high turnover rate of mucosal cells in the mouth means that deficiencies can be noticed here before elsewhere in the body. Lower blood vitamin and mineral levels have been linked to periodontal disease.

Read on to discover a list of some key nutrients and their food sources, which are excellent for supporting your oral health.

1. Foods that contain calcium

As with our bones, calcium is vital to maintain good teeth structure, and it may also aid enamel remineralisation. Cheeses and plain yoghurt are well-known and excellent sources of calcium. Parmesan and other hard cheese contain the highest quantities, with over 300 mg per 30 gram serving. You can also find non-diary alternatives like soy milk and tofu which are fortified with calcium.

The soft bones of oily fish like canned sardines and salmon, or anchovies are also good sources. Dark leafy greens like kale and spinach, almonds and white beans contain decent levels of calcium and are excellent to include in your diet.

2. Foods that contain phosphorous

Phosphorus is another essential mineral for teeth structure and maintaining teeth enamel. Meats and seafood provide good amounts of phosphorous, particularly chicken, turkey, pork and organ meats. For the vegetarians, this mineral can be found in soybeans, tempeh, tofu, and lentils, as well as eggs and dairy products.

3. Watery foods

The flow of saliva can be stimulated by eating crunchy vegetables which contain a lot of water. This is excellent for our oral health as our saliva contains enzymes which protect the teeth from acids found in foods. Celery, carrots, and apples are top choices and will also clean the teeth surfaces.

4. Foods that contain vitamin C

Most people know of vitamin C as a powerful and important nutrient. It is needed specifically for your mucosal/connective tissues and good immune function. Additionally, it maintains the integrity of the periodontal ligament and is used in collagen production. Look to regularly include red peppers, oranges, kiwifruit, strawberries, broccoli and dark leafy greens in your diet.

5. Foods that contain vitamin D

For your body to actually absorb the calcium you are consuming, you also need sufficient vitamin D. There is generally only small amounts of vitamin D in foods. Seafood, egg yolks and mushrooms all have vitamin D, though food sources alone aren’t usually enough to meet our body’s needs. Look for vitamin D fortified foods like orange juice, milk, and cereal in your supermarket.

You can ensure you are getting enough vitamin D by heading out into the sun for a while. The lighter your skin, the larger the area of skin exposed to direct sunlight, and the stronger the sun, the more vitamin D your body can make. Vitamin D will be produced in about half the time it takes for skin to burn from exposure, and you should get some sun a couple of times a week. The exact time you’ll need to meet your requirements depends on your skin type and where you live.

6. Foods that contain probiotics

Probiotics are most commonly associated with gut health, but recent evidence is showing they play an important role in oral health too. Probiotics are actual living microbes which have a positive benefit when consumed. The best food sources are yoghurt and fermented foods including sauerkraut, miso, and kombucha.

7. Antioxidant-rich foods

Antioxidants have been linked with fighting inflammation-causing bacteria and periodontal disease, along with maintaining healthy mucosal/connective tissues and general immune function. Regularly eating a wide variety of antioxidant-rich foods like apples, berries, beans, dark leafy greens, pecans, artichokes will help protect your body from free radical damage. A little dark chocolate won’t hurt either.

8. Foods that contain anthocyanins, arginine, and polyphenols

Research continues to identify additional nutrients which play a part in oral health.

Look for purple foods to get your dose of the anthocyanins. These antioxidant pigments are found in such richly coloured foods as blueberries, blackcurrants, blackberries, cherries, plums, eggplants, purple cabbages, and pomegranates.

Arginine is thought to be protective against cavities and may reduce the formation of plaque. The best sources are protein-rich foods like meat, nuts, and soy.

Polyphenols have been linked to the prevention of gum disease cavities and bad breath by inhibiting bacteria growth. Tea, berries, dark chocolate and red wine all can help in the fight against gum disease.

Final Thoughts

Keeping your teeth and gums healthy requires more than just brushing. With a little more attention to the foods and nutrients you consume, you can make a positive improvement in your oral health.

Exclusive: Quick Tips on 4 Key Areas on How to Maintain Good Health

Sunday, 14 October 2018

Taking care of your health every day when you are still healthy is the best way to maintain good health. When you are not sick, you don't need to spend a lot of time and money and effort. Incorporate healthy habits into your daily life. Be mindful of those little things that can lead to long-term harm if you do them regularly (or don't do enough of every day).

A lot of what I'm going to share below are common sense or things you already know; but sometimes we need a reminder. As the Chinese saying goes, if we can Eat well, Sleep well, Eliminate well and feel Mentally well, we have a lot to be grateful for. We are healthy.

Here are 4 key areas I will touch on - Diet, Rest, Exercise and Emotion.


1. Diet

What is the best food to eat?
There is no standard diet plan for everybody.
However, you can't go wrong with seasonal food, and food which are natural, fresh and wholesome. Take in different varieties. Things we put into our mouth should fulfil the basic requirement in that we don't fall sick after eating. In fact, we should feel energetic, more alert and focused after a meal. Some food (for instance eating a big plate of fried rice or pasta for lunch) may create inertia and make us feel drowsy in the afternoon.

Exclusive: What You Should Know About How Doctors Treat Allergy

Sunday, 7 October 2018

Allergy is an auto-immune system disorder. It is the body's hypersensitivity to certain substances. In other words, it is the extreme reaction of the body's immune system to certain allergens e.g. dust mites, animal fur, feather, wind-pollinated pollen, seafood etc.


Why does it happen?

1st stage
A foreign substance enters into the human body for the first time. Lymphocytes (a type of white blood cells) produce antibody which then attach to mast cells (another type of WBC). Together, they create a "memory" that the foreign substance is an allergen.

2nd stage
The same allergen enters the body for the second time. The mast cells release histamines in response to the injury / presence of allergens (to protect body from the allergens). Histamines react and bind with the H1 or H2 receptors.
