Hi there, dear ladies! 

Although I had intended this post to be for ladies –  gentlemen, you can also follow these two techniques to lose weight and firm up your body easily! 

Doing Lajin and taking DE are the two easiest and most effortless combination techniques that I have tested and found to be really effective in getting a better-shaped body and in losing those stubborn love handles and fat.

All achievable  without having to go on a reduced-calories or starvation diets, without going for  intensive cardio workouts….plus, you get fast results, too! All you need to do for the exercise part is just to LIE DOWN for a few minutes!

Sounds easy??

Right!! 

After having had 4 children and just passed middle age when most parts of the body go “South,” I can attest to the weight loss efficacy of Lajin and DE, because my clothes have gone down  from a UK size 12 to a size 10 (USA size 10 to  size 8.) I did Lajin for about 2 months starting in August 2014 and then I stopped Lajin when I tested out DE for a month beginning 29 September.

The Morning After……

Hi there, dear friends :D

I am so glad to report that the morning after I had a field day of ecstatically happy emotions, I woke up early this morning  still filled with happy feelings and the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams was playing continuously in my head! LOL! 

Yesterday, I wrote about Wow, I am deliriously happy now and feel like a superwoman – serotonin boost after taking DE?” and because “happiness” is such an elusive emotion for some of us, I had wondered if my “happiness” tank was going to fizzle out by today. 

Phew, it didn’t! As I am typing this, I am bobbing my head and tapping my feet to the song above – very contented that I didn’t suffer a crash of emotions  and I am still happy today, albeit at a more mellow level, but nonetheless, still preciously good for me.

Although they say that happiness is a state of the mind, I would like to believe that my body is able to now efficiently synthesize serotonin and I have a more stable source of serotonin to “happify” my moods. 

Now, it is past noon already and I am soooo glad that Pharrell is still singing “Happy” in my head! Right, I am off to carry out more decluttering in my kitchen! LOL! 

With best wishes,

choesf :D 

P.S. Hey, I feel like one of those “Jaegers” in the “Pacific Rim” movie and I had beaten the “Kaiju” monster of Crankiness & Irritability…hence, another of my favourite music is also playing in my head!

Wow, I Am Deliriously Happy Now & Feel Like A Superwoman – Serotonin Boost After Taking DE ?

(If music is not playing, click on mute button) 

Hi there, dear friends :D

I can’t believe what I am feeling right now – I am so deliriously happy that I am literally singing in my heart!! This is coming from a 52-yearl old woman who feels like 32-year old now! Perhaps, this is how it feels like being a “spring chicken” and what they say about regaining the “fountain of youth” again? LOL!

I am trying to catch this moment and backtrack my way to see if I can capture the right “formula” to get a rush of happiness by writing about it here before I lose the happy moment, so just that I can get this mood again in future.

Some background first of all ===> almost 4 weeks ago, I started taking Diatomaceous Earth (DE in short and I wrote about it HERE a few days ago) , which have many health benefits, among which are feelings of good mood and increased energy. Today, I experienced a boundless supply of both! Yippee!

Hi there, dear friends :D

This is going to be my longest and most exciting article to date! 

Three weeks ago, I stumbled onto the amazing diverse health benefits of Diatomaceous Earth (DE) while reading up on Oil Pulling. I was so impressed by the wonders of what DE could do for humans that I spent everyday reading up as much as I could find on its testimonials.  

I had to look for testimonials from people through blogs and forums because Food Grade DE is more commonly used for livestock and bugs control, and there was hardly any scientific research to back up DE benefits on humans – mainly because it is  Nature’s natural occurring element and it is not a potential drug that pharmaceutical companies can fund the studies to patent DE and make money out of it.

Because DE is of food grade and safe to give to animals for removing internal parasites and worms, people had also considered it safe to ingest DE for parasitic and worm elimination but in the process, they inadvertently discovered  many beneficial side effects on their health and bodies!! 

* Please note that I am not selling DE and that I am not being paid to write about it here, but I am just sharing with you what I found out about this latest health remedy.  Those of you that follow my blog would know by now that I am always very keen to pick up, research and test out natural health remedies. 

Last year, I wrote about “On A Quest To Reduce My Husband’s Dependency for  High Blood Pressure/Cholesterol/Blood Sugar/ Uric Acid Medication” but unfortunately, my quest didn’t really work out for my husband because I was giving him too many herbal teas to drink and it was tedious to keep doing that daily. Most importantly, my husband didn’t give up his junk and fatty foods and drinks! 

But good news!! After having just ingested Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth for 2 weeks, my family doctor had reduced my husband’s high blood pressure medication! Instead of taking both Norvasc and Micardis daily, he now needs only to take Micardis – thanks to DE, his blood pressure readings of around 115/75 to 122/80 recently were really healthy and stable!!  Our doctor is monitoring the progress of my husband’s medication reduction and next month, my husband’s blood tests due then will reveal the status of his cholesterol, blood sugar and uric acid levels. We hope the DE will reduce them naturally, too! 

Not only did my husband’s blood pressure improved drastically, I also experienced the same effect! My blood pressure which usually hovered around 140/90 (except for that time when I was doing Lajin stretching, my blood pressure was lower around 125/82) even dropped as low as 106/72 after just one week of taking DE! Now, my daily readings range between 125/75 and 116/72 – I am so glad I need not go on any medication that my doctor was trying to put me on! Phew! :D 

But what I was most  happy  among the wonderful effects I got from the DE was my receding hairline corners at my forehead temples have now filled up with baby hairs! My usual baby fine, limp hair is now so much thicker and for the first time last week to attend a wedding dinner, I didn’t even need to use any hair styling products to give my hair good shape….my hair looks good on its own now! Wow! 

Okay….this is going to be a lengthy post because I have so many praises to sing about DE, and so, I will lay them out in point form below. If you or you know anyone who are on medication or statin drugs or are suffering from joint/arthritic pains or have bald spots/receding hairline, go through the notes below for more information. I will post the links to where I got my information from as well as relate my family’s personal experiences there.

Then, do all the research that you need before deciding whether you are going to try ingesting DE or not…

 

Do read also ===> Human DE Use Testimonials - I had enjoyed reading them many times over! LOL! 

 

There is an interesting forum ===> “Health Results Of 4 Months Taking Diatomaceous Earth”  – it has 51 pages of comments, scientific research and studies from April 2013 until September 2014 

 

** Caution! Please ingest only FRESH WATER FOOD GRADE AMORPHOUS DIATOMACEOUS EARTH (DE)  !!

An Amazingly Simple But Very Effective 10-Minute DIY Chinese Stretching Method For Immediate Relief & Permanent Healing Of Back Aches & Pains – The Lajin Stretching Method

Source - Paida & Lajin Self-Healing Method

(Source – Paida & Lajin Self-Healing Method)

Hi there, dear friends :D

I got such great relief just now from my chronic lower backache from doing this super simple Lajin self-stretching method for the first time, that I couldn’t wait to share this technique with you! It looks unassuming and simple but it really packs some healing power! 

For months, I have this on-off lower backache that got better when I went for Thai massages,  but the pain would be back whenever I do heavy lifting or mop the floor. Previously, I would go to my lady healer friend for deep massages to get rid of my backaches but since she passed away early this year, I never got 100% better relief from my backaches…..until today, when I tried the Lajin method!

Wow, I am now pain free from my back sprain and I could even carry out a major decluttering of my kitchen and clean up my house today. I had to bend this way and that way but my lower back was still pain-free! Previously, I couldn’t bend over much and even washing dishes at the sink was a torture for me!  

I am so glad that my eldest nephew from Singapore introduced me to this technique of self healing last week! .Lajin was originally taught by Xiao Hongchi from China. You will be amazed at how simple the stretching technique is and yet it is a powerful healing technique! Although it seems like just some simple stretching, the stretching poses actually activate certain meridian points and clear those that are blocked. :D 

After I had completed my Lajin stretching exercise in 10 minutes, I was able to walk properly again. I even tested bending at my waist in every imaginable situation to see if my lower backache comes back – it didn’t and I am still pain free now. My nephew said his chronic back pains and other pains have been gone for months now after doing this Lajin exercise twice only! :D

Take Advantage Of Mother Nature’s Wonderful Gift To Us – Drink Fresh, Young Coconut Water Often For Good Health!

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

Young, green coconuts

Easy Green Mung Bean Chinese Dessert/Sweet Soup For Detoxification, To Dispel Body Heatiness, For Lowering High Blood Pressure & Cholesterol, Clearing Acne

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.
