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 were hardly any scientific research to back up its 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 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…

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)  :-

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!
