Hi there, dear friends :) 

For the past one week, I had the type of heatiness known as “fire” heatiness (known in Cantonese as “for” for fire), usually caused from restless sleep or late in sleeping at night. This “fire” heatiness can be quite tricky to get rid of and the often recommended remedy from Chinese Medicine Shops would be to boil some ginseng root tea (“yeong sum soe” or “pow sum soe”). I was suffering from knee joint pains, increased heart rate, neck pains and a general feeling of restlessness, conditions that can be brought on by body heatiness. 

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there are many types of “heatiness” that can occur in one’s body (I won’t go into their complicated descriptions) and without consulting a Chinese Physician to determine the state of yin-yang of one’s body, it can be difficult to treat to treat heatiness on our own with the various Chinese cooling drinks. 

This morning, I was having brunch at a Mamak (Indian Muslim) restaurant restaurant with my husband when I noticed they have fresh green coconuts lined up at their drinks counter. Then it hit me! I could have kicked myself for forgetting the oldest remedy and most yummy remedy for body heatiness according to TCM ===> FRESH YOUNG COCONUT WATER

Hi there, dear friends! :D

Yesterday, I was testing out blogging from my new iPhone and when I hit the “Publish” button, only the photos remained of this post – all narration was gone! LOL!  So, here is the update :idea: ===> 

This is a very classic, traditional Chinese sweet soup or dessert that uses the Green Mung Bean. It is not as popular as the other Chinese sweet soups (Tong Sui in Cantonese) but I do make it now and then as an easy method for countering body heatiness and for detoxification. 

A few years ago, a friend taught me an effective remedy for reducing high viral fever – take a handful of green mung beans and boil in 2 cups of water for about 15 minutes. Add half a teaspoon of salt and drink when cooled. The cooling property of the bean is magnified this way.

When I told an elderly aunt about this fever reducing remedy, she said when she was a young girl around 50 years ago, women would drink lots of this salted green mung bean water to prevent pregnancies whenever they had missed their period or their menses were late.

A Nutritious, Yummy, Guilt-Free Chinese Dessert That Packs A Lot Of Health Benefits – Pumpkin Barley Tong Sui

A bowl of hot, delicious pumpkin barley sweet soup

Hi there, dear friends :D  

I first tasted this very delicious pumpkin barley dessert (aka sweet soup or “Tong Sui” in Cantonese) at my lady healer friend’s place two years ago. In addition to its great taste, this dessert is also very nutritional to us and packs a lot of health benefits!

My children love the pumpkin barley tong sui and I would usually make a large pot of it. We would have our first bowl piping hot. Then when the remaining tong sui has cooled, I would store the whole pot in the refrigerator and the tong sui is consumed cold over the next few days (3 days is the maximum). The iced, cold version tastes even better in the hot, hazy weather that we are experiencing in Malaysia now.

Here are the health benefits of the various ingredients used in the yummy Pumpkin Barley Tong Sui (the easy to follow recipe will come after that)  :-

Happy Mother’s Day 2014

Happy Mother's Day 2014

 

Mothers Day 
A Mother loves right from the start.
She holds her baby close to her heart.
The bond that grows will never falter.
Her love is so strong it will never alter.
A Mother gives never ending Love.
She never feels that she has given enough.
For you she will always do her best.
Constantly working, there’s no time to rest.
A Mother is there when things go wrong.
A hug and a kiss to help us along.
Always there when we need her near.
Gently wipes our eyes when we shed a tear.
So on this day shower your Mother with Love.
Gifts and presents are nice but that is not enough.
Give your Mother a day to have some peace of mind.
Be gentle, be good, be helpful, be kind.
Happy Mothers Day.

Hi there, dear friends :D

More than a year ago, I wrote here about being “Admitted Into Hospital For Irregular Heartbeats/Arrhythmia” – my heart was beating uncontrollably and I was having difficulty breathing. A check by my family doctor revealed that I was having a ventricular fibrillation and I was admitted into the hospital for further checks. Unfortunately, my cardiologist didn’t find out anything wrong with me and in the end, I concluded that my heart was acting up as a symptom of perimenopause. 

I had tried many natural remedies (Motherwort Tea, Dong Quai, Hawthorn Tincture, etc) and although they do regularise my heart somewhat, after a month or two, my heart would go back to its own irregular dance, sometimes keeping me up at night and increasing my blood pressure.

An Amazing & Effective, Cheap Way To Lose Weight Fast, Increase Your Energy, For Knee Joint Pains, For Cracked Heels & Improve Your Health —> Water! (Drink 3 Cups Immediately Upon Waking Up In The Morning)

water

Hi there, dear friends :D

I lost 2 kilos (4.4 lbs) and my chronic cracked heel on my left foot healed suddenly since I started drinking lots more water daily 2 weeks ago! I didn’t go on any diet nor did I increase my daily activities or exercises, and yet, I have dropped one size in my clothes. Wow!

The only thing that I did differently in the last 2 weeks was to drink 3 cups of water immediately upon waking up, and BEFORE I brushed my teeth…and more water drank in between meals.

I have never been this excited, amazed and impressed since I wrote about the Homemade Citrus Enzymes For Cleaning  in 2009! :D

It all started when I read an article called “The Amazing Water Cure” (copied at the bottom of this post for your info) about how the way we drink water can treat various illnesses. I know the Chinese also like to promote drinking a glass or 2 of water before brushing our teeth, but I never knew the health benefits of doing that.
