General Guidelines

There are 4 areas we must look into when handling cases:

1) Emotions
Do you get angry easily, or worry a lot or get stressed out over small things etc? All these negative emotions contribute to a lot of internal toxins and diseases.

How do you calm down your emotions?
(a) Take Lactoberry. It increases the number of good bacteria in your digestive system and reduces the bad bacteria that make you uneasy.
(b) Drink Luchun Lingzhi Tea. One of its ingredients called gynostemma pentaphyllum has a calming effect.

2) Food
How is your dietary habit? Do you eat a lot of junk food, fast food, processed food, or eat out a lot?

In TCM, each of our 5 body organs is represented by a respective food colour. If the organ is deteriorating or not performing well (i.e. not able to "absorb" or "take in" those colours), the said colour would be reflected on our face:

(i) Green - Liver
(ii) Yellow - Spleen
(iii) Red - Heart
(iv) Black - Kidney
(v) White - Lung

For example, a person with deteriorating kidney function would have a slightly darker tone on his facial skin. One whose face always looks abnormally red may have blockages or hardening of his arteries or weakened heart. People with a lot of liver spots / pigmentation may have liver problem.

3) Living habits
Does he exercise regularly, get sufficient sleep every night, stay in a healthy environment etc?

4) Healthfood
Quality healthfood supplies what is deficient in our diet and balances the unhealthy lifestyle habits that we cannot change.

Some case studies..

Eczema

A 13 year old girl has been suffering from eczema since birth. She is sensitive to detergent, shampoo and even cooking oil. Her father passed away from colon cancer. It is therefore a delicate situation as the doctor could not give her any medication to suppress her immune system (to treat the eczema) as she has a higher risk of contracting cancer if her immune cells are weak.

She should manage her stress as stress is a big culprit for causing eczema flare-ups and gastric.

If a person takes a lot of "cooling food", like raw salad, cold drinks, filtered water etc, it can weaken the spleen and stomach in the long run, leading to eczema. 

Dosage: 4 capsules Jia Hor Lingzhi + 8 capsules Yung Kien Pollen + 2-3 sachets Lactoberry a day.
Make a paste comprising Jia Hor Lingzhi mixed with VCare Body Lotion and apply on the affected area (there is an ingredient in Jia Hor Lingzhi that is very good for the skin).
Change the household products to GoEco range and use VCare personal care range.
If the itchiness is really unbearable, take 20 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma within 1 hour. It works very well to suppress the itchiness.

Difficulty Sleeping at Night / Liver Problem

For people with difficulty sleeping at night, if they also present with these symptoms, it could be a sign of liver problem:

- feelings of heatiness
- constipation
- cramps in hands or legs
- menses pain
- bloated stomach

Our liver performs many functions. If it is not well, it will be difficult to transport blood to the extreme areas of our body, hence causing cramps in the hands / feet of some people.
Cholesterol is one of the ingredients to produce enzymes. 
Despite healthy readings of GOT (AST) and GPT (ALT), if the LDL cholesterol level is high, it is a sign of potential liver problem.

GPT (ALT) readings indicate the liver cells that are still alive. There may be viruses hibernating inside the cells but have not caused cell-death yet. There is no cirrhosis issue at this point. This measurement is more specific for liver damage. Normal reading is 5-45 U/L.

GOT (AST) readings indicate liver cells which are already dead. The virus has already killed the liver cells. This is the enzyme that is leaked into the bloodstream when the liver cells are damaged hence the GOT reading increases. It causes hardening of the liver and is an indication of how serious is the cirrhosis.

After taking Lingzhi, liver readings may increase temporarily. 
What this means is that Lingzhi kills the virus which are residing inside the liver cells, thus killing the infected liver cells at the same time. Hence, the readings of GPT will increase. It is a positive reaction and is only temporary.

Pregnant Ladies

Consuming up to 6 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein a day helps increase amniotic fluid in the wombs of pregnant ladies. It helps the baby feel more comfortable.

Thyroid Problems

Cholesterol is one of the ingredients to produce hormones. If the liver malfunctions, it may cause under-production of cholesterol and less hormones, which in turn leads to hormone imbalance. This may result in thyroid problems.

Kidney Problems

GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) is a test to check how well your kidney is working. Normal results range from 90-120 mL/min/1.73m2. Low readings is a sign of kidney disease. As we grow older, it is harder and harder to regenerate new kidney cells. GFR decreases with age.
Lingzhi helps give these people a better life. If the GFR readings stay low, don't worry too much about it. If the reading doesn't suddenly deteriorate substantially, it is considered good.

Diabetes

A 57 year old lady has a fasting blood sugar reading of 12 mmol/L.
She should try to reduce her medication by managing her emotions and staying calm.
Be mindful of her diet by choosing organic food and reduce consumption of processed food, including white bread, white rice, white flour etc.

Dosage: Take 3 sachets Jia Hor Fiber + Luchun Tea + 12 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma + 3 sachets Lactoberry a day. She can also drink 2-3 sachets CEO Coffee.

Others

Some people always rush to toilet immediately after each meal. To handle this, every morning, try taking boiled ginger water.
