What to bring when you travel frequently

I travel a lot. In fact, at least twice in a month for 2 days 1 night each. Not long, but it is quite stressful for the body.

I will usually bring both Omega fish oil and daily with me, which I think it is easiest to bring. I will take both daily and fish oil one each three times a day. Helps to reduce stress and keep me going.

It will be even better if I take B-complex and Bio-C with me as well. Just that my vitamin box is not big enough. Perhaps, I just making excuses. Hahaha...

Health Report

Recently, my wife's company has this freelance GP going to their office to do blood test. His job was to collect sample blood, send to lab for analysis and return with a report card. That's all he did. He didn't explain why like that? Or what does the report tell you.

So one of colleagues show her her report card and asked her how? So without much delayed, she called me. This what she told me. Couldn't remember the exact words.

"I think something about protein somewhere. I think is kidney." My wife said.
"ok. What about Liver?" I said.
"Got a asterisk there too." She said. BTW, this is very common. If the kidney has problem, usually the liver is already having it.
"what else?" I said.
"There is something about her red blood cells... Don't know what is that. Cholesterol no good." She said.
"What else?" I said.
"Got calcium also..." She said. Chee...Is she dying or what? That was the first thing in my mind.

The conversation didn't end there actually. However, I shall stop here. Thereafter I asked a couple more questions to confirm my assumptions.

  1. Unhealthy lifestyle. Fried food more than anything.
  2. Over weight.
  3. Lack of exercise. Of course, if not point no.2 won't happen.
Her colleague went to see her GP and her GP wants her to start medication straight away. As for me, I don't think taking medicine is a sure way to cure it. This is basically or typically a lifestyle problem. If she makes a commitment to change her lifestyle, her health report will definitely take a positive turn within the next 6 months.

  1. Start taking more fresh food than those that can last many days. Fried foods are meant to last for days. Even ants or flies won't go near it. Fresh food is good for the liver and less strenuous for the kidney.
  2. Start a low impact exercise. Start sweating so that the body Qi moves. This is a very Chinese thing, but we believe in it.
  3. Read more health books, mix with the right people who cares about their health than those who care more about McDonald. Sorry McDonald, one of those who like you but not your food.
Supplements to take:
  1. 2 scoops of protein powder with positrim in the morning. Start having more quality protein will help the body to repair.
  2. Double X both in the morning and evening. A high quality multi-vitamins give the body a boost.
  3. 1 capsule of Salmon Omega fish oil 3 times a day. Start giving the body good oil rather than those bad one. Improve cholesterol level and brain function.
  4. 4 tablets of Milk Thistle before sleep and after breakfast. Repair liver. Save kidney.
  5. Take lecithin E as many as possible during the entire day. Take it as a snack rather than eating sweet. Lecithin helps to remove bad fat and vitamin E helps to repair body.
Although there are many more to take, but this is a good start.

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a.. Sugar, is a cancer-feeder.

By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells.
Sugar substitutes like Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt. ( THE WEST MADE US 2 CHANGE FROM SEA 2 WHITE IODISED SALT ).

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro- intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus.

By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment.

A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful,especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.
About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.

Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water- best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Florssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins,minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.


1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This info is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.
Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.

He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as CorningWare, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.

You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as
Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

Heart Attacks and Drinking Warm Water

Heart Attacks And Drinking Warm Water

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal,
but about
cid:X.MA3.1204255220@aol.comHeart Attacks . The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.
For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the
intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Common Symptoms Of Heart Attack...

A serious note about heart attacks - You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the
left arm hurting . Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
You may never have the first
chest pain during the course of a heart attack.Nauseaand intense sweatingare also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive.

Health advice from a taxi uncle

  1. No canned drink.
  2. No canned food.
  3. No take away drink in plastic material.
  4. Eat or drink only at the food store.
  5. No bubble tea because his wife got diabetes after drinking bubble teas. BTW, bubble tea is full of artificial colouring and sugar.
  6. No vegetable that is grown in the air. Try putting man in the air and see what happen to him.
  7. No vegetable that is grown in the water. Try asking a man to submerge for one day and see what happen to him.
  8. Vegetables are meant to grow in the soil. Anything that is not is artificial. To me, I think this is a damn good advice.

Supplements for long distant runner

A friend of mine had been taking a particular brand for quite sometime. You merely need to put the powder into a container and shake shake shake.

However, the other day he told me he is thinking of changing brand. So I asked him why since you have been doing that for a long time? There is a difference between powder and tablets type. Powder type offers you convenience. Save time like a 3 in 1 coffee. Tablets type requires you to pop different tablets in a day, but it gives you more control. So I ask him, which do you prefer? He couldn't answer me. Next question was, what should he take them?

Let's review this question. For a long distant runner, what does your body need them?

  1. A strong heart. That will be COQ10.
  2. A clear highway for blood to flow. That will be Lecithin E and Salmon Omega fish oil.
  3. Requires a lot of repair, especially those lean muscles. That will be protein.
  4. A high level of oxidative stress. That will be multi-carotene, Bio-C and Lecithin E.
  5. Efficient energy conversion. That will be your B-complex.
  6. Always maintain good joints. That will be either Glucosamine-7 or Glucosamine-HCI.
  7. Relax muscles: Calcium and Magnesium
  8. Last but not least, maintain health. XX or Daily.
What do you think? Is this a lot?

COQ10 Therapy

You maybe wondering why the blog post is called COQ10 therapy? Is there something wrong with me?

Well, it is actually. You see, I have been going for my weekly chiropractic session recently. Tuning my body, adjusting my spine and hips. You may say I look ok... I think so too after my first adjustment and seeing my X-ray. Actually, it is not true. There is quite a far bit of misalignment and my right leg is shorter than my leg. Hmm... no wonder my right foot customized insole always cracked all these years...

So why COQ10? Well, it seems that after the adjustment, I'm kind of experiencing a bit of breathless. Especially after my long run (I'm on the micoach Marathon training program), I just feel something is wrong. I'm not blaming on the chiropractic, in fact my doc said is kind of strange actually. I thought so too... wakaka....

Anyway, I suspect is the way my body is adjusting itself after tuning. Like my chiropractor said, new information is flowing into my brain since my releasing more blood into my brain. I truly believe in that as after my first session, I felt quite a far bit of pressure on my left eye. You only experience pressure on your eye balls when you have high blood pressure. I mean really high ok.

Breathlessness maybe related to the way you breath, sometimes, it is also due the heart needs to pump harder or faster to get more oxygen for the body. It may signals there is something wrong with the cardiovascular system. And for my case, I will take it because of the new adjustment.

After taking 2 capsules of Nutrilite COQ10 per day for the past few days, it seems everything is like back to normal. In fact, this morning I had my 1 hour green zone run with 79% in the zone. What do you think? Not bad right?

Perhaps, my COQ10 is depleting as either I'm getting older, running too much or having too much stress. Whatever the reason it can be, COQ10 becomes essential as some point in life. Don't leave home without it.

Lancet formally retracts 1998 paper linking vaccine and autism

So now Lancet formally retracts this report, how do you feel about it? As for me, I'm still worried about its after effect not because of autism or whatsoever.

Here's the problem, when a baby receive a vaccination, he or she will have fever and they can't tell you. The only way to know is to observe, constantly checking their temperature and see whether they are showing sign of tiredness or they are still active.

For some cases, babies will have high fever and you won't know until don't know when. And by then, their brain or hearing maybe affected. Although we can give our babies crushed bio-C and put in their drink or, give them cherry drink, I still feel that this is not the solution.

Most importantly, it is best to give them vaccination when they can start expressing themselves. Anyway, this is my personal view. Do take it with a pinch of salt.

Eczema is actually not a skin problem. It is actually a sign telling us either we are under too much stress or, the body is having inflammation issue. It is that simple. Not matter what cream you apply, what skin doctors you visit, at the end of the day, that particular cream you use will have a limited effect. So, the best solution is solve the root of the problem.

If you are always under tremendous stress, then it is time to de-stress yourself. Learn to take things easily, breath deeply and have a positive mind will help you to reduce the problem of eczema.

And of course, you must also try to find out whether you have any allergy issues and etc... Sometimes, certain allergens will give rise to eczema too. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables will also help to improve the problem too.

  1. Ensure that you take water-soluble vitamins regularly. That means, take both B-complex and Bio-C on an hourly basis if you can. Take 2 tablets each and observe your skin conditions after 2 to 3 days.
  2. Take salmon omega fish oil 1 capsule either 2 or 3 times a day.
  3. Lecithin E: 16 to 32 tablets per day. You can divide it yourself since Vitamin E is an oil-soluble vitamin.
  4. Take 1 capsule of COQ10.
  5. Take 3 capsules of multi-carotene 3 times a day until your skin turn orange and stop.
  6. Take 2 tablets of Milk Thistle to strengthen your Liver
Food to avoid:
  1. Dairy products
  2. Chemical or perfumed soaps, bath oil and etc...
  3. If you are sensitive gluten, avoid it
Food to focus:
  1. Fresh fruits and vegetables
  2. Add full-grained rice to your diet
  3. Drinks lot of water but not to the extent you need to urinate every now and then.
Lastly, you can still lead a normal life as long as you are willing to make some positive changes to your current lifestyle.

The Dangers of Cow’s Milk - Should children drink Cows Milk?

This article can be found in this URL:

Raising a child without cows milk seems risky to most parents. Most of us have been raised drinking it and are conditioned to believe the immense benefits it has to offer. It is believed by many, that cows milk is an absolute must to everyone’s diet, especially a growing child who needs the calcium for healthy bone growth.

Think back to as early as elementary school, do you recall the ever so popular food pyramid hanging in your cafeteria that says you need a whopping 3 servings of dairy per day? What about the “Everybody Needs Milk” ads? And the cute little cartons of milk? What child can pass on the school lunch staple - chocolate milk in a cute little carton with a cute little cow?
Our “nutritional education” starting as early as public school (which by the way is partly funded by the dairy industry), taught us that dairy products are one of the four basic food groups we all need for proper nutrition. Cows milk is promoted to be, without a doubt, the most perfect food for humans, especially for children. Being against milk almost seems wrong, and questioning its benefits is bizarre to most. We are told that milk is good, therefore you must believe it is good. But is this really the truth or part of a dairy industry myth?

The Dairy Industry got this part right - Everyone Needs Milk. That is, during infancy, everyone needs milk. Milk is Mother Nature’s most perfect creation. Not only does it provide a baby with the proper nourishment, it also serves as golden medicine. It swarms with antibodies and white blood cells drawn from the body. By drinking it, a baby shares its mothers immune system and much more. Milk provides just the right balance of fats, proteins, vitamins, hormones, and enzymes for the developing baby. Sounds perfect right? It is.. the only catch is that this wonder food is perfect only for the baby whose mother provides it with. In other words, cows milk is perfect… for the calf.. until it is weaned. Dog milk is perfect too, for the puppy of course, as rat milk is for the rat, etc etc etc. Does it make sense to feed a human baby, or adult, with milk that comes from a different species?

To get a better understanding of why cows milk is not meant for humans, lets analyze the difference between a human baby drinking the milk of its mother versus the milk from a cow. The type of milk an animal produces reflects the nutritional needs of its babies. In other words, the milk of each species appears to have been specifically designed to protect the young of that species. In human babies, the high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) provided in breast milk is responsible for rapidly developing the brain; tripling in size by the age of one. Cow’s milk contains a significantly lower amount of PUFAs and a higher level of body-building saturated fats contributing to the rapid growth in body size, rather then brain development. Human milk is 5 to 7 percent protein and it takes an infant approximately 180 days to double their birth weight, whereas a calf requires only 45 days to double their birth weight since the cows milk is 15 percent protein. See the major difference?

Besides the amount of protein present in the two milks, the composition is completely different. Cows milk contains 20 times more casein, the primary type of protein, then human milk, making it nearly impossible for us to assimilate. Also, a large majority of us are lactose intolerant. What does this mean exactly? Being lactose intolerant means that we cannot digest lactose which is the sugar in milk (cow’s milk and human milk). An enzyme known as lactase is responsible for digesting lactose. It has been learned that we lose the lactase enzyme activity between the ages of one and a half and four years old. This appears to be a normal process of maturation and shows that in nature, we were never intended to consume lactose containing foods after the normal weaning period. Having proteins that are not assimilated by our body leads to a weakened immune system causing a wide array of problems such as allergies, asthma, skin rashes, arthritis, heart disease and more.

You might be wondering, what about calcium? You will be surprised to learn that although cows milk contains a large percentile of calcium, it is very hard for us humans to assimilate it due to a different composition of enzymes. As a matter of fact, those that are daily dairy consumers have less calcium in their blood when compared to those that do not consume any dairy. Green leafy vegetables are a great source of calcium as well as other essential nutrients.

Besides all this, you must know that nearly all cows, unless you have raised it yourself, are full of toxins such as pesticides, antibiotics, hormones and growth favtors. Just like in human milk, toxins pass through the cows milk. You might say, well, pasteurization takes care of that. Yes, Pasteurization kills most, but not all of these toxins. Pasteurizing milk also greatly diminishes its nutrient content. After pasteurizing, cows milk has up to a 66 percent loss of vitamins A, D and E. Vitamin C loss usually exceeds 50 percent and vitamins B6 and B12 are completely destroyed. Pasteurization also destroys beneficial enzymes, antibodies and hormones. Pasteurization destroys lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat, which impairs fat metabolism and the ability to properly absorb fat soluble vitamins A and D. (The dairy industry is aware of the diminished vitamin D content in commercial milk, so they fortify it with a form of this vitamin.) Basically, we are pretty much left with a nutrient-less, chemical full concoction that is high in fat content that gets stored in our cells and contributes to a wide range of health conditions. Does this sound like the perfect food for our developing children?

Who would of thought that something so basic to the American diet be so harmful? Do you know that Westerners suffer from many more alignments then Easterners? Is it a coincidence? I believe not, but don’t take my word for it. Think through all of this thoroughly and come to your own conclusion. What makes the most sense? How can the much “needed” food contain so many minuses to it? How can any perfect food cause such an array of health conditions? If cows milk was so necessary by the human body, would it cause colic, ear infections and eczema in infants? What do you think?

Fortunate for us,we can turn to delicious plant based alternatives to get our nutritional requirements such as calcium. Enjoy some Hemp Milk, Almond Milk or Coconut Milk and be assured that no health alignments will arise from them. Indulge in some almonds, spinach, swiss chard, collards, broccoli, sesame seeds, chia seeds, sprouted sunflower seeds and many more, and you will more then meet your nutritional requirement.

Here is a list of conditions Cows Milk has been associated with:

Bloody Stools
Respiratory Conditions
Pulmonary Infiltrates
Osteoporosis (Might be surprising since Milk is supposed to prevent this condition!)
Iron Deficiency Anemia
Mental Depression
..and many more.

Think wisely, don’t follow the herd, make your own decisions and protect your family

Scientists link plastics chemical to health risks

The original article can be found here:

Scientists link plastics chemical to health risks

They confirm BPA's link to heart risk; findings likely to restrict the chemical's use. -Reuters
Kate Kelland

Wed, Jan 13, 2010

LONDON - Exposure to a chemical found in plastic containers is linked to heart disease, scientists said on Wednesday, confirming earlier findings and adding to pressure to ban its use in bottles and food packaging.

British and U.S. researchers studied the effects of the chemical bisphenol A using data from a U.S. government national nutrition survey in 2006 and found that high levels of it in urine samples were associated with heart disease.

Bisphenol A, known as BPA, is widely used in plastics and has been a growing concern for scientists in countries such as Britain, Canada and the United States, where food and drug regulators are examining its safety.

David Melzer, professor of epidemiology and public health at the Peninsula Medical School in Exeter, England, who led the study, said the research confirmed earlier findings of a link between BPA and heart problems.

The analysis also confirmed that BPA plays a role in diabetes and some forms of liver disease, said Melzer's team, who studied data on 1,493 people aged 18 to 74.

"Our latest analysis largely confirms the first analysis, and excludes the possibility that the original report was a statistical blip," they said in a statement.

BPA, used to stiffen plastic bottles and line cans, belongs to a class of compounds sometimes called endocrine disruptors.

The U.S. Endocrine Society called last June for better studies into BPA and presented research showing the chemical can affect the hearts of women and permanently damage the DNA of mice.

"The risks associated with exposure to BPA may be small, but they are relevant to very large numbers of people. This information is important since it provides a great opportunity for intervention to reduce the risks," said Exeter's Tamara Galloway, who worked on the study published by the Public Library of Science online science journal PLoS One.


U.S. environmental health advocacy groups are urging a federal ban on BPA.

"There's enough research to take definitive action on this chemical to reduce exposures in people and the environment," Dr. Anila Jacob of the Environmental Working Group, a non-profit organization, said in a telephone interview.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is considering whether any action needs to be taken.

U.S. government toxicologists at the National Institutes of Health concluded in 2008 that BPA presents concern for harmful effects on development of the prostate and brain and for behavioral changes in fetuses, infants and children.

Canada's government plans to outlaw plastic baby bottles made with BPA. The charity Breast Cancer UK last month urged the British government to do the same because they said there was"compelling" evidence linking the chemical to breast cancer risk.

Experts estimate BPA is detectable in the bodies of more than 90 percent of U.S. and European populations. It is one of the world's highest production volume chemicals, with more than 2.2 million tonnes produced annually.
