Bits & Bites #212 - Health: Piles and Diabetes

Here are 2 reasons why a person always suffer from piles / haemorrhoids problem:

(a) Lack of fiber. This causes difficulty in moving the bowels and the exertion causes bleeding.

(b) The colon has too much bad bacteria. When the peristaltic movement in the intestinal tract slows down (e.g. when a person is emotionally stressed), the stools are retained inside the colon for a longer duration, thereby creating a lot of bad bacteria. In the long term, it can cause colon cancer.

Generally, our body needs about 25 g of fiber everyday. This is equivalent to 25 apples or 1 kg of leafy greens a day. If you don't take much fruits and vege, supplement with 2 sachets Jia Hor Fiber a day. That can help you reach the 25 g requirement.


Inside our pancreas, there are 2 types of cells:

(a) Alpha-cells increase the glucose level in the blood.
(b) Beta-cells produces a hormone called insulin that is responsible for reducing glucose concentration in the blood.

Lingzhi is able to protect both the Alpha and Beta cells to ensure they function properly. As such, Lingzhi is very important for people with diabetic condition. It ensures that sufficient insulin is produced whenever required. Insulin acts as a "key" to "open the door" of the red blood cells to allow the glucose to enter (and thus reducing the level of sugar in the blood).


When a diabetic person takes Lingzhi - his blood sugar level may temporarily increase during the period of healing reaction. However, this person won't experience much of the typical symptoms of a high blood sugar patient e.g. feeling thirsty, sudden hunger, uncomfortableness, dizziness etc.


Ideally, taking 12 capsules Yung Kien Ganoderma a day is a good formula for diabetics. But if he has budget problem, take less Lingzhi and supplement with Jia Hor Fiber and CEO Coffee. For borderline cases, take 2 sachets Jia Hor Fiber a day would do. If the blood sugar reading is more than 10 mmol/L, take 3 sachets. If it exceeds 15 mmol/L, take 6 sachets.


How do diabetic drugs work?

(a) In cases where the receptors in red blood cells are slow to recognise the presence of glucose, the glucose won't be able to quickly enter the RBCs and hence blood sugar level goes up. The drug makes the receptors respond faster. Drugs such as metformin improve the sensitivity of body tissues to insulin so the body uses insulin more effectively.

(b) In cases where the beta-cells produce insufficient insulin, inhibitor drugs are prescribed, which force the beta-cells to produce more insulin. In the long term, the beta-cells will be destroyed.

All these drugs come with multiple side-effects including nausea, diarrhoea, weight gain etc. Hence, it is not a good long-term solution. It is better to practice healthy eating and do regular exercise. At the same time, replace the drugs with Shuang Hor Lingzhi.
