What You Need to Know About Cholesterol

Sunday, 23 September 2018

Here's a quick refresher on what is cholesterol, why is it important for our body, how medicines work and what are their side effects, and the role Lingzhi plays.


About 75-80% of the cholesterol in our body is produced by our own liver. Only 20-25% come from our food intake. The LDL is "bad" cholesterol because it sticks to the blood vessels, resulting in Hardening and Blockage of arteries. However, if LDL is balanced by a healthy level of HDL, the "good" cholesterol, then it is of no concern, because HDL brings excess LDL back to the liver.

Other causes of blockages in the arteries include:

(i) calcification, where calcium build up in places where it doesn't usually appear.
(ii) thrombus caused by the aggregation and clotting of too much platelets, thereby creating blood clots.

The common Western medication prescribed for blocked blood vessels are Aspirin and Statin drugs:

(a) Aspirin stops platelets from sticking together to form blood clots. Some side effects include stomach pain and internal bleeding.

(b) Statin blocks the enzyme called HMG-CoA Reductase (which is a substance the body needs to make cholesterol) and thus stops the liver from producing too much cholesterol. It acts as a Blood Thinner, by diluting and reducing the viscosity of the blood.

One of the best selling statins is atovarstatin, marketed under the trade name Lipitor. Apart from cholesterol, it is also prescribed by doctors for people with blood circulatory system problems, including HBP (caused by blockage of arteries) and diabetes (which can cause heart attacks and strokes).

Statins are used to lower blood lipids and treat hypercholesterolemia, and should only be used for people who have not responded to lifestyle changes (sleeping early, consuming less alcohol and stop smoking) and special diet (less red meat, no fried food etc) over a period of 4 months. Your doctor should not immediately prescribe you drugs without first advising you to reduce your cholesterol level the natural way.

Note: Statins only block the enzyme from producing new cholesterol but the excess old cholesterols are still circulating in the bloodstream, not cleared.

Side effects of Statins

- Damage muscles, create muscle pain and cause inflammation. This happens gradually and after 5-7 years of consumption, patients will find that their legs have no strength, becoming weaker and weaker.
- Nausea.
- Loss of memory. Under TCM theory, the liver transport blood to the brain. Due to the blockage, less blood flows to the brain, resulting in death of brain cells and hence memory loss over long-term consumption.
- Insomnia.
- Joint pain and back pain.

How does Lingzhi Work?

On the contrary, a Blood Cleanser (such as Lingzhi) works differently.
This is what it does:

(i) Removes excess LDL from the blood vessels.
(ii) Removes excess calcium deposit from the blood vessels.
(iii) Cleanses the blood from blockages like thrombi.
(iv) Regulates the functions of macrophage and endothelial cells. An auto-immune disorder will cause them to behave abnormally. When there is too much fats in the blood vessels, the macrophages would swallow them. But due to the disorder, the macrophages are unable to stop and continue to swallow until they explode. The waste then remains at the site, causing inflammation in the area. Endothelial cells sense the damage and go to rectify it. However, such actions cause blockage when they release too much tissues in their effort to repair, narrowing the vessel passage more and more, potentially causing strokes or heart attacks.

If cholesterol is so bad, why do we need cholesterol?


It is an important building block for body tissues and cell membranes.
It is a source of energy.
It helps in the production of hormones, like oestrogen, testosterone and adrenal hormones.
It assists in bile production in the liver.

If the liver sees that the body's energy and hormone level are low, it will keep producing more cholesterol. For example, according to TCM theory, the gallbladder detox and rests at 11pm-1am and the liver detox at 1am-3am. We should be in deep sleep during these hours for the liver to do its job. People who always sleep late will easily get gout (excess uric acid cannot be excreted by the liver) and are at higher risk of getting gallstones (excess calcium buildup which leads to calcification and stones).

If a person's heart always beat very fast, it utilises a lot of energy, so the liver keeps producing cholesterol to replace the energy used. Likewise, smoking and alcohol also use a lot of energy thus induce the liver to over-produce cholesterol.

Taking Lingzhi help you regulate your cholesterol level. The active component that works on choelsterol is Triterpenoid, which triggers the liver to reduce production of cholesterol. Choose Yung Kien Ganoderma as it contains 12.6% Triterpenoid.

What is the difference between Drugs and Lingzhi?

Statin drug can only block the liver from producing cholesterol.
Lingzhi works to reduce the LDL cholesterol. Lingzhi also help regenerate new liver cells.
Note that should a person have a lot of blockages in his blood vessels, he may feel a lot of ache in his body during the period of healing reaction.

What else must you take at the same time?

(i) Jia Hor Soya Protein - the lecithin also works to cleanse blockages of the blood vessels.
(ii) Jia Hor Fiber - the maltodextrin is helpful in absorbing the free fatty acids from our food to reduce the assimilation of cholesterol into the blood.

Take these together with 12 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma a day, over a period of 6 months, as recommended by Dr Chen. Click here for details..

10 Daily Habits That Hold You Back From Success

Sunday, 16 September 2018


There is no such thing as overnight success. The things you do everyday bring you to where you are - be it success or failure. Take a look at these 10 habits and reflect if you are guilty of any of them. You must change as these are the habits that hold you back from success.

1) Morning routine is non-existent
Having a morning routine energises you and makes you feel good. You start the day right. Select something that resonates with you - meditation, exercise, prayer, reading for 20 minutes etc.

2) You forget your strengths when difficulty or challenges happen
You can't handle crisis; you're emotionally not strong.
For example, if your car cannot start or your appointment doesn't go as planned, you lost confidence in yourself. Acknowledge your strengths and remember them in times of challenges. Then you will be able to pull yourself out of your down time more quickly.

3) You major in minor things
You get distracted easily if you don't have goals and clear directions. What are the 3 most important things you want to do this month? Having goals help you to be more focused. For example, if you want to lose weight, you have to allocate time to do it.

4) Let energy vampire consume you
You spend too much time on energy wasting activities like Facebook, group chats, emails etc. You can spend some time to update yourself through these channels but put a cap on it.

5) You work on tasks that can be delegated to someone else
Define your priority and what you want to achieve. After 1 year, what kind of person do you want to be? When you have a goal, ever day you will do something to achieve that goal. You will be more productive. Do not waste time on tasks that don't contribute to your goals; delegate to others.

6) Spend too much time recovering from setbacks
When you have setbacks, how much time do you take to recover? When you are mentally prepared, you will take a shorter time to bounce back and get back to doing what you should do. When something bad happens to you, focus on the solution, on what you can do. If there is really nothing you can do, then surrender and accept it. It is meant to be. Then you can move forward.

7) Procrastinate
Fear of failure often cause people to put off doing something. Find out why you procrastinate. Force yourself to take action. Sometimes the first step is the hardest. If you need help, form a support group to encourage you.

8) Avoid difficult conversations
We often avoid situations that challenge us for example talking to someone that is difficult. But that could be a major opportunity. It may not be as tough as you fear. If you push yourself to do it, you surrender to the fear and you will grow.

9) You don't or hardly say Thank You
People who don't say thank you are not grateful people or they are egoistic or arrogant inside. The universal force work together to make you successful; your success is not solely your own effort. The more you say thank you and be humble, the more the universe will give you back. Take time to be grateful.

10) You forget that your inner life determines your outer success
The good life we have sometimes has little to do with our outer success. We are happy and fulfilled by who we are on the inside. Our internal lives contribute largely to producing many of our external circumstances. Our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. When you change your inside, be grateful, be more forgiving, don't find fault in people, don't complain so much etc, you start to attract the right people into your life. So working on inner self is more important than anything if you want to have a happier and successful life.

Do the right things. Then do the things right. Keep working on yourself. You will change for the better. Then you will get what you want.
As Winston Churchill said,
A pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity.
An optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.

Everyone who gives you a hard time is an opportunity for you to grow. Don't beat yourself up or be a victim when faced with challenges. All of us encounter challenges in life. You are the only one who can help yourself.

2) cold (han)
3) dampness (shek)
4) stagnation (ning)
5) clogging of arteries (yee)
6) tumour (lieu)
7) cancer (ai)

Bits & Bites #209 - Health: TCM: Yi Li, Bing Li, Yao Li and the TCM Concept of Dampness

Sunday, 26 August 2018

Please email askfuiping@gmail.com if you want to buy Shuang Hor products for your health.

Ishin
We learn about health so we can serve our consumers better. We are more professional and don't give the wrong impression that we are only there to sell our products. With the sharing of this knowledge, it changes people's perception of us. When we project ourselves as solution providers, people will be more willing to listen to what we have to offer.

Health-related knowledge is broadly divided into 2 categories:

1) Pathology (Yi Li, Bing Li)

Yi Li looks at how our body organs work. Bing Li looks at how we get the diseases and the complications arising therefrom.

(a) Pre-illness (80% of the population)
This looks at the symptoms indicated by various organs of our body eg. conditions of the eyes, lips, nose, forehead, trembling hand etc. From the knowledge gained through studies of TCM's 5 Elements Theory (relationship amongst the 5 body organs on how they help or restrain each other) and 5 Zhang 6 Fu, we can identify which organ in the body is potentially damaged. We learn how to prevent them from further deterioration.

(b) Illness (10% of the population)
This can be diagnosed or explained through the Western way, by looking at the readings from medical checkup results. Thus, by combining both, we acquire a more complete overall picture.

2) Pharmacology (Yao Li)

(a) How Western medication is used to treat diseases. We learn about what medicines are available, how they work and what are the side effects. We go to doctors for disease management - when you are sick, then you see the doctor. If you are healthy, you don't. When people have the knowledge, they will look for alternatives which are safe and yet effective.

(b) How Shuang Hor products can help. We learn how to apply Shuang Hor products to various diseases.

Learning about Pathology and Pharmacology (Yi Li, Bing Li, Yao Li) gives us the knowledge on how to help people in a more complete way.

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

The TCM Concept of Dampness 

Dampness can be thought of as a condition of high humidity inside the body. Dampness describes a condition of viscosity and stagnation.

Dampness can be seen from the tongue of a person - there are dental marks around the edge of the tongue. This is because when a person's body is damp, the tongue thickens, causing abrasion between the tongue and teeth. It is not to be confused with ulcer, or accidentally having bitten the tongue. There is also an excess sticky coating of white on the top surface of the tongue.

Dampness is linked to weakness of the Spleen.
Some symptoms include:
  • sticky stools, bowel movement not smooth, constipation, dark colour urine
  • dry mouth, bad breath, bitter taste in mouth
  • phlegm and cough 
  • oily hair, hair loss, grey hair
  • obese, easily put on weight
  • sagging eyebags
  • back pain and joint soreness
  • chest oppression 
  • dark circles around the eyes
  • snoring
  • fatigue and lack of energy
  • wet vagina
  • wet testicles
  • no interest in sex
  • complexion turns yellowish and dark / dull
  • pimples and oily face
  • white vaginal discharge and itchy vagina
  • rashes.
How to reduce Dampness:
  • do not shower late
  • dry the body properly after shower
  • use hair dryer to blow-dry the body
  • do not wear wet clothing e.g. after exercise or caught in the rain
  • do not sit on damp ground
  • do not take cold water.
It is noted that if a person has too much Dampness, taking Lingzhi alone will not give much improvement, because Lingzhi cannot reduce Dampness and Coldness. Such people have to change their living habits at the same time and not solely rely on Lingzhi.

Guest Blog: Risk Factors for Oral Cancer & Early Detection

Sunday, 19 August 2018


Oral cancer affects the head and neck. Unfortunately, the prevalence of oral cancer in the United Kingdom is increasing, with a net increase in prevalence of over 30% in recent years.

If you are at risk for oral cancer, it is important to seek regular screening so that oral cancer can be detected at an earlier stage, allowing for treatment and ultimately better outcomes.

1. Risk Factors

Some behaviours are associated with an increased risk of developing oral cancer. These include using alcohol and tobacco, prolonged exposure to the sun, poor oral hygiene, and dietary factors.

Using tobacco is one of the most significant risk factors for head and neck cancers, including oral cancer. Eighty-five percent of all cases of oral cancer are linked to the use of tobacco products. Some types of tobacco use, such as pipe smoking can increase your oral cancer risk, and even second-hand smoke exposure can cause oral cancer.

Heavy drinkers contract oral cancer at higher rates than those who drink infrequently or not at all.

Prolonged sun exposure is correlated with oral cancer. To reduce your risk of oral cancer associated with sun exposure, use a sun cream that protects from UV rays or reduce your exposure of skin to the sunlight by wearing clothing that provides adequate coverage, wearing a hat, or staying indoors when the sun is most intense usually from midday to 4 pm.

People with poor oral hygiene and dental health have oral cancer at higher rates than people whose oral hygiene is adequate. This may include dentures that do not fit well, people who do not brush their teeth often enough, and those who do not see a dentist.

A diet that is low in fruits and vegetables and lacks certain vitamins, such as Vitamin A also has a positive association with an increased risk for oral cancer.

2. Early Detection

(a) Possible signs and symptoms of oral cavity 

Several signs and symptoms may be indicative of cancers of the oral cavity. If you are experiencing any of these, it is important to discuss them with your doctor right away.

The most common sign of oral cancer is a sore on the inside of the mouth that does not heal or go away. This could be a lump or thickening, or a red or white patch that may be sore or have no sensation, on the gums, tongue, or inside of the cheek.

Having a pain in the mouth that does not go away with time, any numbness or swelling in the mouth or persistent bad breath even with good oral hygiene can also be symptoms of oral cancer.

(b) How to Diagnose Oral Cancer

There are several tests a doctor can use to detect oral cancer, including panendoscopy, biopsy, and other imaging tests.

A panendoscopy is a diagnostic imaging technique where a doctor uses a camera on a tube to examine the inner aspect of the throat and mouth and view any visible lesions.

If a lesion or tumor is found, the doctor will take a biopsy of it to be sent for further examination in a lab. This is done by using a scalpel or other instrument to excise a small amount of tissue.

Imaging tests such as an X-ray or CT scan may also be done; this is especially useful to see if cancer has spread elsewhere in the body.

Things to Ask Your Doctor About Oral Cancer

1) How Can I Reduce My Risk of Developing Oral Cancer?
This question will guide your doctor to suggest the top things you can do to prevent cancer from occurring.

2) If I Have A Family Member with Oral Cancer, Am I At Increased Risk?
Asking this question will prompt your doctor to dig deeper into your family’s medical history to see how it will affect present and future risk.

3) Is My Diet Putting Me at Risk for Oral Cancer?
Your doctor may recommend dietary changes to reduce risk, such as increasing intake of fruits and vegetables containing vitamin A. They may also refer you to a dietitian or nutritionist.

4) Will I Develop Oral Cancer Because of Where I Live or Work?
If you live somewhere with a high level of sun exposure and work long days outside, you are at increased risk of oral cancer. Your doctor can help you understand by how much.

5) What Stage Is My Oral Cancer?
Oral cancers are organised and categorised into stages. This is something your doctor should discuss with you if you are diagnosed with oral cancer.

6) What Is the Prognosis of My Oral Cancer?
Based on the severity and stage of your cancer and whether it has metastasised, your doctor can give you a prognosis with different treatments.

7) What Is the Standard Treatment for My Type of Oral Cancer?
Knowing the most common treatment for the type and stage of cancer you have, and its advantages and disadvantages can help you come up with a course of action for your treatment.

8) What Other Treatments Are Available?
It may be that the most common treatment is not the most effective for your cancer, or other therapies are similarly efficacious with fewer side effects.

9) What Is the Single Most Important Thing I Can Do to Prevent My Oral Cancer from Recurring?
If you are a survivor of oral cancer, this is the most important health question you need to be asking your doctor.

10) Is There Another Specialist I Should Be Seeing?
Whether they recommend a dentist in Amersham or an oncologist in another town, asking this question will help to ensure you are receiving the best possible treatment.

Gastric, Ulcers and Acid Reflux

Sunday, 12 August 2018


Stomach and digestive system discomfort is very, very common. It affects one's appetite and ability to sleep well, because the pain attacks when you eat or lie down. When the discomfort recurs very often, it affects your overall health as you cannot eat and cannot sleep. Many people either ignore the pain, or self medicate because they are too busy. It is only when the pain becomes too serious that they see the doctor. The doctors may not correctly diagnose the specific condition because some symptoms are so similar.

Here are some factors that can trigger gastric attacks:

a) Emotions such as prolonged stress, anger or worries.

b) Medications like painkillers. These medications stop the stomach from releasing an enzyme which protect the stomach lining and prevent ulcers. Hence the chance of getting ulcers is higher. If you find the appropriate medicine to take to treat damages caused by ulcers, it takes only 1-2 weeks to heal.

c) Not eating breakfast. Our stomach releases acid juice to digest food between 7-9 am. If the stomach is empty at this time, the acid can start to erode the stomach lining.

d) Eating at irregular hours  such as eating lunch at 3 pm or eating dinner at 9 pm because of work and other commitments.

e) Eating too much.

f) Not eating enough resulting in excess unused gastric juice in the stomach.

g) H. Pylori bacteria. For such cases, it is helpful to take antibiotics to kill the bacteria.

h) Lifestyle habits like lying down after meals to watch TV or to sleep. When one lies down, the acid juice in the stomach starts to back flow up the oesophagus. The valve (or sphincter) between the oesophagus and stomach does not have the strong lining protection like the stomach and thus will be easily damaged over time. This is when one would feel pain and discomfort at the area below the chest. If it worsens and the acid flows further up, one feels the symptoms of a heart attack or worse, the very painful burning sensation along the throat. If it's really bad, you will taste a sour or bitter-tasting acid backing up your throat.

This is acid reflux problem (also called GERD or heartburn). Gastric medication won't be able to repair the valve because it is not in the stomach area. Gastric drugs usually serve the function of diluting the acid juice so it doesn't attack the stomach lining so much thus reducing the pain. However, the weak acid juice negatively affects your digestion and slows it down. Hence you will feel stomach bloating problem and general discomfort after eating.

As gastric drugs generally only address the symptoms, such drugs need to be taken for life. It is not an ideal solution.

What can you do

Mix 2 sachets of Jia Hor Soya Protein + 1 sachet Vitaking in 300 ml warm / hot water. Shake well and drink immediately. Take on empty stomach in the morning and night.

At the same time, change your habits. Eat more meals but at smaller portions,.Take a slow walk after meals to help with digestion. Do not eat 3 hours before bedtime and do not lie down after food. Manage your emotions.

If one suffers from gastric, the relief from the pain is almost immediate after taking the warm protein shake. If it is acid reflux problem, it takes time to repair and heal the valve lining. If the pain is still there after taking Jia Hor Soya Protein, it could be ulcer or something more serious - not just a little injured valve. See the doctor and get a scope done to identify which part is injured. When you are taking medication, it is better to eat the meds together with Jia Hor Soya Protein

Depending on what is the diagnosis, consider taking Lactoberry probiotics and Yung Kien Ganoderma for overall healing of your digestive system.

Bits & Bites #208 - Health: TCM: Kidney (and Western Medical Tests) and Liver (and Eye Colour)

Sunday, 5 August 2018

Please email askfuiping@gmail.com if you want to buy Shuang Hor products for your health.

Atelier
Main functions of kidney:

1. Filter the blood and remove wastes such as BUN and creatinine (refer below).

2. Control body's fluid balance and regulate balance of electrolytes:

(a) Calcium : Phosphorus should be in the ratio of 2 : 1.
If the presence of calcium is too high, it will cause calcification and hardening of arteries, leading to strokes or heart attacks.

(b) Natrium (Sodium) : Potassium
When the level of potassium is higher, it can eliminate excessive sodium and thus keep the blood pressure down.

(c) pH value is maintained at 7.35 - 7.45.

3. Produce renin to regulate blood pressure.

4. Produce erythropoietin (EPO) hormones which promote the formation of red blood cells by the bone marrow.

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

Causes of kidney damage:

Drugs/medication, including usage of viagra.
Cold drinks. Drinking tap water (even though it is filtered) contributes to weakening the kidney (because it is yin in nature). It is better to drink boiled water.
- Too much sex.
Salty food.
High blood pressure is one of the most common causes of kidney failure. That's because it can damage the arteries leading into the kidney and the glomeruli within the kidneys. Damage to either results in the kidney unable to effectively filter waste from the blood. As a result, dangerous levels of fluids and wastes can accumulate, ultimately requiring dialysis or kidney transplant.
- Infection or inflammation and auto-immune diseases e.g. SLE.
- Obstruction of urinary tract due to enlarged prostate or kidney stones.

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

Some symptoms of weakening kidney:

Purplish coloured tongue.
Blood pressure reading is high, but the person feels normal. This is not due to hypertension disease. Rather, when the body is cold, the blood vessels constrict, hence blood pressure shoots up. ACE is the enzyme that controls our blood pressure. When you are cold, adrenal glands release ACE, which alerts your body to preserve the warmth by constricting the blood vessels, which increases blood pressure.
Needle-like pain at the sole of the feet.
- Body feels very cold or very hot. Under TCM theory, kidney is the body organ that adjusts the body temperature. When the kidney weakens, the body temperature can fluctuate out of control and you will suddenly feel too hot alternating with too cold.
- Reduced amount of urine despite drinking a lot of water, due to water retention problem - causing swelling of the legs, ankles and feet.
- Unexplained shortness of breath.
- Excessive drowsiness or fatigue.
- Persistent nausea, confusion, pain or pressure in the chest.
- Darker skin tone on the face.
- Limbs are weak - cannot stand for long.

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

Western medical tests on kidney usually focus on checking:

(i) The kidney's ability to filter urea nitrogen (blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test). The liver produces ammonia (which contains nitrogen) after it breaks down protein. It forms urea (a chemical waste product) which travels from the liver to the kidney. A healthy kidney will filter the urea and remove it from the blood and pass out through urine. A BUN test indicates a person has kidney problem if the BUN reading is high. Normal range is 7 - 20 mg/dL (2.5 - 7.1 mmol/L).

(ii) Creatinine is a waste product from protein in your diet and normal breakdown of muscles in your body. People with kidney disease will have a higher level of creatinine in the blood. If creatinine is not eliminated, you will start to feel muscle aches. Normal range is 0.7 - 1.3 mg/dL for men and 0.6 - 1.1 mg.dL for women.

(iii) GFR (glomerular filtration rate) test estimates how well the kidney is filtering blood (through glomerulus) to remove wastes and extra water. If the filtration capability good, your kidney function is considered good. A GFR over 60 mL/min/1.73m2 is adequate. GFR below 15 indicates kidney failure.

(iv) Uric acid test. People with weak kidney should not eat too much high uric acid food such as anchovies, peanuts, beans and internal organs. Normal range is 3.4-7 mg/dL for men and 2.4-6 mg/dL for women.

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

When your HDL cholesterol level is high, it is a positive sign.
It means your blood vessels are clean, and
- It is easier for the blood to carry oxygen and nutrients to all the body organs.
- When the organs are healthy, they can fully absorb all the nutrients.
- The kidneys don't have to work so hard to filter out the waste materials.
- Your blood pressure is lower.
- You will have a longer life.

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

Your health from your Eyes:

a) Clear demarkation between the black and white of eye - liver is healthy.
b) Bluish rim around black of eye - arteriosclerosis (hardening of arteries).
c) Lines all along iris - stress.
d) Yellowish layer on top of black of eye - high cholesterol. Feel heat on top of scalp when under the sun. Tend to doze off easily.
e) Blood stains on white of eye - liver heat and cannot sleep well.
f) Yellowish on white of eye - liver not healthy as cannot metabolise bilirubin. Also indication of fatty liver problem (liver is losing its function to eliminate oil).

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

The liver plays a critical role in metabolising uric acid, calcium etc before the kidney can pass them out through urine. If the functions of either the kidney or liver deteriorate and they have problem processing these chemicals, the uric acid will build up inside the body causing gout whereas calcium build-up in the blood will cause stones. Hence it is critical to maintain the detox ability of the liver and kidney.

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

If the liver is damaged, it is easier for Lingzhi to help repair the damage and generate new liver cells. Yung Kien Ganoderma has been accredited with liver protection ability by the Taiwan's Ministry of Health.
However, if the kidney is damaged, it is more difficult to rescue. It is harder for Lingzhi to help regrow new kidney cells.
