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

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

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.

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

A bowl of hot pumpkin barley sweet soup

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)  :-

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.

I Got “O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Cream” For My Chronic Cracked Heels and Fingers

O'Keeffe's Cream For Working Hands

O’Keeffe’s Cream For Working Hands which I had purchased online from iherb for USD6-30 or about RM20-00

Hi there, dear friends :D

When I stumbled onto this hand cream on iherb , I thought it was perfect and just what I needed to treat my chronic cracked heels and finger tips.  The “Working Hands” name on the label sayes it all – I am constantly using my hands to clean and cook and garden (I don’t like to wear gloves) …..i.e. my working hands will need this cream! :lol:

Right away, I ordered it from iherb and I just received the cream yesterday. Please note that I am not being paid nor was I given this product free to review and promote.  I am posting here just so you know that there is a “man’s cream” (extra strength, and none of those soft, gentle ladies’ cream?) out there for us ladies to try treating our cracked skins.   :wink: 

Previously, I have tried many types of skin creams/lotions for cracked heels and finger tips but nothing seemed to work for me, and I continued to slather on lots of creams and lotion every day and night!
