Hip Fractures and Osteoporosis

Saturday 17 February 2024

Bone fractures in the elderly are almost always caused by weak bones from osteoporosis or a fall. It is common that hip bones are the ones that are fractured. If someone has a hip fracture and wants to be pain-free, he would have to be bed-ridden for 3-6 months. The bone may heal but it could be in a displaced position and he would be unable to walk properly and fall again. Also, staying for prolonged duration in a lying position can cause lung complications, pneumonia, blood clots, bed sores, etc. 

For that reason, doctors prefer hip fractures in elderly to be operated on. Unfortunately, surgery has many risks due to their age. Putting them under anaesthesia is also risky. Further, the elderly may be unfit for surgery if they have blocks in the arteries and their cardiovascular risk for hip replacement is very high.

In such cases, doctors can only pump them with painkillers and blood thinners to prevent strokes or deep vein thrombosis. They would likely need nursing care. It is a financial and emotional strain to their family.

Those who can undergo surgery would have to sit up within 3-4 days and undergo chest rehabilitation to enable them to breath well. By day 5, they have to be transferred to a wheelchair. It would be a very painful process during these 3 months. 

I have something that can help reduce inflammation and speed up recovery - Vitaking collagen. What is it? Check out this 40-second video..


Osteoporosis is inevitable

Women have a 5 to 1 ratio of suffering fractures, as compared to men. The risk is even higher after menopause as the decline in oestrogen makes the bones thinner. The worst hit areas are the hip joint, end of wrist and spine. Women are advised to build their bone mass to a high level when they are in their 20s to 40s, so that when they reach menopause, the bone mass does not drop to a critical stage.

How can you do that? 

Again, I recommend Vitaking. Its main ingredient is Collagen. Click on this article to find out how it functions and why it's a better solution than taking Glucosamine..


Bone renewal is a slow process and has to be combined with proper diet and exercise to work. There's a 40-50% risk of another hip fracture occurring within a year. The anti-osteoporotic drugs take at least 1 year to work. So if your hips are not strong and you are not changing your lifestyle or not doing physiotherapy, then it is going to happen again. Work on building muscles to prevent loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength.

Vitaking helps strengthen your bones, reduce body weight and improves cardiovascular functions. Click here for details..


Some ways to prevent falls

> Have a potty in the bedroom for night-time urination.

> Don't get up from lying to standing position too quickly as it will cause a drop in blood pressure, making you dizzy and fall.

> Install a dim floor light or keep the toilet light on.

> Keep the bedroom free from obstacles so you can move unobstructed.

> Get anti-slip floor mats.

> Remember to take your medications.

Bits & Bites #237 - Health: If You Have All the Money in the World, Which Would You Choose?

Saturday 20 January 2024

Q. If you are deathly sick (eg. cancer) but have all the money in the world to buy back your health, which solution will you choose?

Me: Why would you choose medicine and hospitals?
Given a choice, I will always go for something that has the capability of Medicine, but proven Safe - Lingzhi.
Even better, I will not wait until my health is compromised. I take Lingzhi as Maintenance because I whole-heartedly believe in Prevention and Protection.


How does one get acidic body constitution?

Unhealthy dietary habits like eating a lot of processed food, oily food, sweet food and meat.
Stress and negative emotions such as anger, anxiety, worry.
Overwork in the office or too much physical activity which is beyond the body's capability.
- Exposure to radiation.


Q. Why do some people feel heaty when they start to take Lingzhi?
A. They have acidic body constitution and have a lot of toxins in the body. Their liver function is weak and cannot eliminate all the toxins out. With Lingzhi, this function is reactivated and hence, with the increased activity, more heat is produced.


Q. How many Lingzhi should one take a day as maintenance?
A. It depends on the person. If your body is clean and you are healthy, you can already see good improvement by taking just 2 YK1 a day. But if your body is 'dirty' and you are not in good health, you need to take more. 


Q. What the difference between CEO Coffee and 'cheap' coffee?
A. Simply put, from long-term consumption, 'cheap' coffee can block your blood vessels, whereas CEO Coffee clears your blood vessels.
Why? Because the ingredients used are different. CEO Coffee uses coconut oil which does not contain trans-fat. And with the addition of Lingzhi, CEO Coffee can reduce the risks of 3 complications - stroke, stones and dementia.


Taking Shuang Hor products allow you to be in control of your health. It saves you a lot of time from being caught in traffic going to hospitals and having to wait for hours for doctors' consultations. Not to mention the time sacrifices by your loved ones who need to bring you there. Most importantly, Shuang Hor products are a 100% safer alternative to medicine. Take the right dose and you will be pleasantly surprised.


This post is part of a series sharing Bits of mishmash on health, my business and life in general, which I find inspirational, enlightening or enriching. And Bites of delicious food I have enjoyed.

Any questions? Email me at askfuiping@gmail.com. Happy to help. I am an Authorised Distributor of Shuang Hor.

How to Take Care of Your Liver and 3 Testimonies on Hepatitis

Sunday 31 December 2023

Your liver is the largest internal organ in your body and performs thousands of functions to keep you going. These are some of the Signals you will notice when your liver starts crying for help:

- Dark spots on your face.

- Yellowing of the white of eyes (jaundice).

- Ascites (water retention in belly area).

- First pee in the morning is brownish in colour.

- Fingernails or toenails look dull, change colour, thicken, become brittle, have uneven surface or become loose.

- Feel thirsty and have bad breath. From the TCM (traditional Chinese medicine point of view), this is due to Liver Qi not smooth, caused by stasis / stagnation. The accumulation of foul-smelling toxins in the body tends to give the breath a musty and foul odour.

How to Protect Liver Functions?

1. Lifestyle - have sufficient sleep, do regular exercise, relax your mind and reduce stress.

2. Maintain healthy weight. Obesity can cause the liver to work harder, increasing the risk of fatty liver.

3. Avoid unnecessary blood transfusion, injection, ear piercings, tattoos and sharing of toothbrush and shaver with others.

4. Avoid contact with blood-contaminated equipment or sharing cutleries to reduce the risk of contracting hepatitis B and C as these virus are spread via blood and body fluids.

5. Balanced diet. For a speedier weight loss, eat only low-sugar, high protein and low carb food. Unbalanced diet increases burden on the liver.

6. Food hygiene. Don't drink unboiled water or eat raw seafood as seashells can cause hepatitis A infections.

7. Avoid overeating, alcohol, smoking and processed food.

8. Three acupuncture points for nourishing the liver:

a) Tai chong point (indentation between 1st and 2nd toes).

b) Da dun point (inner part of big toe).

c) San yin jiao point (4 fingers above knob at inner ankle).


These 3 testimonies are extracted from "Healthy Ganoderma" Magazine issue 88, which is a quarterly publication by the Microbiological Research Foundation of Taiwan.

Case 1

Mr Shi Mingde is a hepatitis B carrier. He first detected a benign growth in his liver in year 2000, when he was donating blood. He had a relapse in liver cancer in 2006 and then in 2012. When he came to know about Lingzhi in 2012, he started consuming 9 sachets a day. He did not experience any healing reactions during this period. His liver function index became normal. When he was 78 years old, he could even go for a 34-day tour of 6 countries.

Case 2

In 2011, Mr Chen Yingsheng experienced these symptoms: edema of the feet, gets tired easily, ascites in belly, eyes are a little yellowish, feels drowsy but poor sleep quality and dizziness after waking up. His GPT and GOT readings are normal, but his liver heparin is high at 4.1 mg/dL (normal 0-1.3 mg/dL), and AFP (tumour marker) is very high 170 ng/mL (normal reading for Asians <20 ng/mL). Doctor informed him there is no medicine that can cure him. As his sister-in-law took Lingzhi for her liver problem, he followed suit. 3 months later, his AFP value became normal.

In 2015, he had a recurrence of fulminant hepatitis. The doctor advised that liver transplant is the only way. He started consuming high dose of Lingzhi. After 10 over days, his condition improved. He continued taking Lingzhi until to-date. He didn't need to undergo liver transplant. His blood pressure and blood lipids are normal.

Case 3

Mr Pan Xinhong is a hepatitis B carrier and has hereditary low platelet count. In April 2008, he suffered from severe sepsis caused by acute hepatitis which requires liver transplant. Just overnight, his liver bulged out, he had very severe ascites and his limbs were showing edema. He cannot eat nor urinate. While waiting for liver transplant, he consumed high dose of Lingzhi and Pollen. 8 months later, his liver function improved to a level that resulted in him not being eligible for health insurance if were to undergo liver transplant operation. It would cost him NTD2 million if he proceeded on his own.

in 2014, he was readmitted to hospital for 12 days due to complications arising from liver cirrhosis. The diagnosis states that he has cirrhosis with variceal bleeding, ulcerative colitis, gastrointestinal bleeding and urinary tract infection. He consumed high dose of Lingzhi and Pollen. He improved his daily routine. He also took Jia Hor Protein, Jia Hor Fiber and CEO Coffee. He took more veges and reduced red meat. He stopped working night shift. His liver functions has returned to normal, and his platelet index has also improved.

What is Hidden Hunger?

Monday 11 December 2023

Hidden Hunger
is a term that WHO uses to refer to Micronutrient Deficiencies, which occurs when the quality of food that people eat doesn't meet their nutrient requirements. As such, they are not getting the essential vitamins and minerals they need for their growth and development. According to statistics, approximately 2 billion people worldwide are suffering from health problems due to deficiencies in these micronutrients.

There are many aspects that cause Micronutrient Deficiencies, including:

> Changes in life and work styles, with longer indoor working hours, less outdoor activity and physical exertion, and a decrease in food intake.

> Increased exposure to radiation due to the popularity of electronic gadgets, causing harm to our body in the long run.

> Negative effects of the advent of technology where even though the quantity of food production has increased, but the essential micronutrients have decreased. Consuming the same amount of food is no longer sufficient to meet the body's needs.

Long-term nutritional deficiency can lead to suboptimal health and eventually diseases. 

How to improve or maintain health so that people have fewer chronic diseases?

The best way to address Hidden Hunger is to Eat right and eat well. A complete and balanced diet of essential nutrients and minerals is crucial for the proper functioning of our body. Pollen is one of the most natural and complete food that fits the body's nutritional needs.

How to identify quality pollen?

a) Professional and strict testing - free from pesticides and microbial contamination, with strict expert control.

b) Natural and pure in origin - zero pollution and close to nature.

c) Sealed collection and strict selection - pollen grains selected by the bees.

d) Approximately 200 types of micronutrients which are natural and wholesome

Bits & Bites #236 - Business: Perceptions of MLM Business and Products

Saturday 28 October 2023


I am a university graduate. I am doing MLM business.

Yea yeahh.. Like many of you, I used to have the same perception - that only uneducated people or "aunties" do MLM business. However, after checking out the industry for myself, I realise my perception was wrong.

I personally know many highly qualified professionals and corporate people who are in Shuang Hor business. And achieving great success and satisfaction. For example, 30 years ago, parents would scold their children for spending too many hours on video games. But nowadays, even kids can make a lot of money as video-gamers. It has become a recognised profession.

So, perception changes and reality changes. Graduates and business people are consciously choosing a different path, because of what the industry offers.

If you want to find out why I make the change and why Shuang Hor is different from other MLM companies, please email me at askfuiping@gmail.com.


Many of you have the perception that MLM products are very expensive. Including me.

A friend once told me that she used to work in a well-known multi-national cosmetics company. It was then that she found out the company marked up the selling price of a lipstick by 10 times, from its import cost. She was horrified. 10 times.

Shuang Hor has been around for over 35 years. The cost of its star product, Yung Kien Ganoderma, has remained the same since it was launched 20+ years ago. True, it is not cheap. But if the price doesn't match the value, do you think this product will still be in the market today, marketed under the same name, after so many years?


If you always say you're very busy and have no time, you should see Results, right?

Can whatever you are doing now achieve what you want? If not, why are you wasting your time, so busily running around for? It's like taking painkillers which gives you a temporary relieve. You think you're healed. But it is an illusion as the pain will recur, until you find a permanent solution.

If what your boss is doing cannot lead to achieving your personal objectives, why would you do what he is doing? Why climb the same ladder when it is not going to get you to where you want to go? Find a different direction before it's too late. Email me at askfuiping@gmail.com for a free consultation.
