Endocrine System Diseases: Application of SH Products

Sunday, 6 February 2022

When we talk about the metabolic and endocrine system, we need to touch on hormones, as they are related. Diseases in this system may not be fatal, but they can make you feel very uncomfortable.

The endocrine / hormonal system has various glands which produce and release hormones into the bloodstream, including pituitary gland, thyroid gland etc. Hormones control our daily activities, including our heartbeat, digestion, sugar level, stress level etc.

Kidney secretes a variety of hormones including erythropoietin, calcitriol and renin. People with kidney diseases will also have hormone imbalance. Because of that, people with kidney problem are more prone to have diabetes and vice versa, people with diabetes will have poor kidney function, as both are inter-related.

Liver also secretes many hormones (e.g. hormones that promote cell growth) and has many key functions associated with hormones in the body (e.g. regulating blood pressure or eliminating unneeded hormones). Liver malfunction affects hormone production. One of the raw materials of hormone is amino acid. Liver plays a function in converting protein into amino acid. If it's not functioning properly, it affects the conversion process.

Diseases are the end result. They are the manifestations of poor organ functions. Let's talk about the 3 main endocrine-related diseases, namely diabetes, ageing and kidney lesion.

1. Diabetes

What do the measurements of sugar level in blood (on empty stomach) mean?

- Less than 5.6 mmol/L (healthy)
- Between 5.6 - 6.9 mmol/L (pre-diabetic)
- More than 7.0 mmol/L (diabetic)

The conventional method of measuring one's sugar level is less accurate as it reflects reading at a particular point in time.

A more accurate measurement is HbA1c (in %), which is something that’s made when glucose (sugar) in your body enters RBC and binds to hemoglobin. Blood HbA1c levels are reflective of how well diabetes is controlled. It’s reflective of blood glucose levels over past 3 months and not daily ups and downs of blood glucose. However, note that the test may give misleading results in certain situations.

How do you interpret the readings?
- 4 - 5.6% (normal)
- 5.7 - 6.4% (pre-diabetic - higher chance of getting diabetes)
- More than 6.5% (diabetic)

RBC flow in our bloodstream. Carbo that is consumed will be converted into glucose, which also enters and moves in our bloodstream. Glucose (being a source of energy) needs to enter RBC so they can be carried into every cell in the body as nutrients for them.

(i) For glucose to enter RBC, it requires insulin. Pancreas is a gland that secretes insulin hormones to control blood sugar level in the body. Insulin acts like a key to bring glucose into RBC. If one does not have sufficient insulin, glucose is unable to go into RBC. Diabetes is a disease that happens when glucose cannot enter RBC i.e. excessive glucose is flowing in the bloodstream.

There are 3 types of diabetes. If you like to learn more, click on this link..

(ii) RBC receptors (which receive insulin) is defective or less sensitive. In such cases, although you have sufficient insulin, but due to poor receptor function, RBC is unable to allow insulin to enter.

Being diabetic is not fatal. It is the complications arising from diabetes that make it life-threatening, such as:
- heart failure or heart attack
- kidney failure
- stroke
- blindness
- amputation.

How Western Drugs Treat Diabetes

There are 5 common types of anti-diabetic drugs. Click here to find out how they work and the long-term side effects:

In general, the mechanisms of the drugs either:
(i) Stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin. The side effect is the pancreas may be destroyed in the long-term.
(ii) Stimulate the sensitivity of the receptors so that RBC can receive more glucose.
(iii) Stop the function of liver to convert carbo to glucose. The carbo which cannot be converted ends up in the intestines. Side effects include diarrhoea and bloating.

Insulin is produced by pancreas.  What cause pancreas to malfunction?
(i) Bacterial / viral infections, causing pancreas cells to die.
(ii) Free radicals oxidise pancreas cells, thereby leading to malfunction of pancreas cells.

Western drugs are not able to revive or protect pancreas cells.

How SH Products Work

(a) Lingzhi

How does Lingzhi work?
(i) Lingzhi is effective in strengthening immunity, therefore prevent pancreas from bacterial / viral infections.
Lingzhi being an anti-oxidant has powerful anti-free radical effect.
In other words, Lingzhi has the ability to protect the functions of pancreas and prevent the above-mentioned harm.
(ii) Lingzhi stimulates pancreas to regenerate more new cells.
(iii) Long-term consumption of Lingzhi helps produce healthier bone marrow, which produce better quality RBC, which reduce the problem of insulin resistance etc.

(b) Fiber

Jia Hor Fiber contains Digestion Resistant Maltodextrin. It has been awarded with 4 accreditations.
Click here for details of its benefits..

Combining Lingzhi with Jia Hor Fiber have the ability to delay conversion of starch to glucose and reduce the burden on the pancreas (as it is not being pressured to suddenly produce more insulin to handle the glucose). The glucose is converted gradually.

For patients with blood sugar reading of persistently above 10 mmol/L, it is recommended to take 2 sachets Fiber before each meal. This can help control the blood sugar level very well.

(c) Pollen

Even though Yung Kien Pollen is sweet, do not be concerned as it is the natural sweetness and not an added ingredient which would increase your blood sugar level. Pollen is good for the spleen. From TCM perspective, spleen helps to regulate the endocrine system and thus is good for your hormones, which help manage your diabetes.

Long-term injection of insulin is not good. The dose would get higher over time. Further, the insulin is sourced from pigs or cows and there's a risk of patients developing a reaction towards it.

Bottom line is, Western drugs do not cleanse our blood; the viscosity still remains high and full of toxins. Because of that, the kidneys have to work harder to filter the blood and the liver has to work harder to detoxify the body, thereby damaging both these organs in the long run. This explains why Lingzhi is so popular today because of its unique ability to do both the above functions.

2. Ageing

Ageing is due to free radicals (FR). Every metabolic activity in our body, including breathing, creates free radicals. The more FR you have, the older you look. The reason is FR oxidise body cells and kill them, and so make you look older. FR is an unstable molecule. In order to stabilise itself, it needs to rob an electron from a body cell. The more FR there are, the more injuries to body cells.

Lingzhi is a powerful anti-oxidant and thus is able to address the FR issue. Experiments have shown that taking Yung Kien Lingzhi for long-term keeps you youthful i.e. delays ageing.

3. Kidney Lesion

Kidney cells are easily affected by virus, bacteria and free radicals. We are born with approximately 1 million glomeruli in each kidney. It's not easy to regenerate new glomeruli if the damage is too severe. Kidney failure destroy patients' self-esteem and results in them having a low quality of life. That's why it's important to know how to take care of our kidney.

Lingzhi has the ability to prevent inflammation and death of glomeruli. Lingzhi also helps to regenerate more new kidney cells and has anti-free radical effect.
