This Antibiotic Will Ruin You

I had written in my blogs many times before. I am anti-antibiotics. I saw how it wrecked my daughters’ immune system. Being a new mum 14 years ago, I listened obediently to the pediatricians who treated my eldest child by conveniently prescribing her with antibiotics for flu and throat infection. Consequently, she was constantly ill from the year she started pre-school at 3 years old until she was 6.  I saw how the UTI-causing bacteria in Cass’ body got resistant to all the antibiotics to the point where her pediatric nephrologist told me to stop giving her antibiotics.

It was through my years of experience as a mother that I learned from my own extensive reading from the internet on how antibiotics can wreck our system. And this is why now, I am against the use of antibiotics on myself and on my daughters unless it is a matter of life and death, like what happened to Cass in November 2015 when she had a bout of serious UTI attack which caused high fever and flank pain and needed hospitalization with strong antibiotics drips and oral antibiotics.  Post hospitalization, she was very prone to getting colds. And the UTI came back every six weeks. Yes, the bacteria were that smart (those that were not destroyed by the antibiotics and went into hiding behind the bladder walls). They came out to attack her urinary tract when the conditions were conducive and multiplied at amazing speeds. I tracked the timing of those UTI attacks and found out that they would strike every six weeks. But I found a way of eliminating those pesky bacteria and it was tough. I needed to put Cass on a very regimented lifestyle and diet. I sacrificed my sleep and woke up every 3-4 hourly to make sure that she pees and is fed with Izumio and D-Mannose.  I went to school several times in a week just to check on her. I spoke to all her teachers on her medical condition.  I did this for over a year. And it has exhausted me to the point I told Cass that I feel half my life has been snatched away from the lack of sleep, worry, stress and ensuring that she follows the strict regimen. Some of Cass’ friends and even my friends commented that I am too protective over her but they would never know what I have been going through with Cass. So stop judging if you’ve not been in my shoes yet.

It’s been over half a year since the last UTI attack and I am very, very, very ‘pantang’ and paranoid to even comment about this, lest Cass gets another UTI attack soon. My right eye lid has been twitching lately, shit!! Not a day goes by where I do not worry about the next UTI attack. The supplements (Super Lutein) that I am giving Cass has been very helpful in preventing a UTI attack. Super Lutein contains carotenoids, which are known to prevent inflammation.  Cass can feel the difference after taking Super Lutein and she would ask to pop the capsule twice a day.

Lately, I have stopped waking up at 2 a.m. to bring Cass to pee.  The lack of sleep has taken a great toll on my health. The fibroid in my uterus is growing and it’s been causing me very heavy periods. As a result, I am anemic.  The acupunturist and herbalist whom I am seeing has advised me to stop waking up in the wee hours of the morning.  She told me that our liver repairs between 1-3am each day and it is during this hour that I have been waking up every night for the past 1 year+.  Our liver is our body’s primary detoxifier. So keeping it healthy is very crucial to our overall health, including metabolism and function of our hormones. Fibroids are controlled by hormones (estrogen). If our hormones are imbalanced, the fibroid will grow. For the past 1 week, I have stopped waking up at 2 a.m.  I sleep at 11 p.m. and wake up at 5 a.m.  to bring Cass to the toilet. Then I go about with my daily morning chores before I wake the girls up at 6 a.m. for school. 6 hours of sleep is still NOT sufficient for me. I need at least 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep to feel good the next day.

My main reason of writing this post is to share with you a blog post I read today. It’s from a woman whose life and health are ruined after she took an antibiotics for a UTI attack.  You can read the post here

The next time your doctor prescribes you with antibiotics, ask if you can avoid taking it.

How Do I Care For My Eyes?

I  received my pair of blue light blocking eye glasses from Naturally Plus today! As I am typing this post at my desktop computer now, I am wearing the glasses to block blue light from damaging my precious assets. I can really see the difference–with the anti-blue light glasses on, my eyes do not get tired and strained easily from the glare of the monitor.  I really need to take good care of my eyes as I want them to be in tip top condition for as long as I live.

I am turning 44 years old this year and currently, I am doing everything that I can to prevent age-related macular degeneration (AMD) of my eyes. Here’s what I am doing to preserve the health of my eyes:

1. Take Super Lutein
2. Wear anti blue light eye glasses whenever I use the computer
3. Try to get sufficient rest and sleep (trying real hard!)
4. Exercise
5. Eat a healthy diet

What is age-related macular degeneration?
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of blindness in the developed world. AMD is a disease associated with aging that gradually destroys sharp, central vision. Central vision is needed for seeing objects clearly and for common daily tasks such as reading and driving.

Blue light exposure may increase the risk of macular degeneration.
The fact that blue light penetrates all the way to the retina (the inner lining of the back of the eye) is important, because laboratory studies have shown that too much exposure to blue light can damage light-sensitive cells in the retina. This causes changes that resemble those of macular degeneration, which can lead to permanent vision loss. Although more research is needed to determine how much natural and man-made blue light is “too much blue light” for the retina, many eye care providers are concerned that the added blue light exposure from computer screens, smartphones and other digital devices might increase a person’s risk of macular degeneration later in life.

Protecting Your Eyes With Lutein, The Eye Vitamin.  
Lutein is one of two major carotenoids found as a color pigment in the human eye (macula and retina). It is thought to function as a light filter, protecting the eye tissues from sunlight damage. Lutein is called a carotenoid vitamin. It is related to beta-carotene and vitamin A. Foods rich in lutein include broccoli, spinach, kale, corn, orange pepper, kiwi fruit, grapes, orange juice, zucchini, and squash. Lutein is absorbed best when it is taken with a high-fat meal.

Tips for Protecting Eye Health and Preventing Macular Degeneration
These suggestions may help protect vision and improve your overall health, and some may lower the risk of developing AMD. Even if you already have AMD, continue these healthy habits:

  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Eat a nutritious diet that includes green leafy vegetables, yellow and orange fruit, fish and whole grains.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Maintain normal blood pressure and control other medical conditions.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Wear sunglasses and hats when you are outdoors.
  • Get regular eye exams, and consult your doctor if you notice vision changes.

The anti-blue light eye glasses from Naturally Plus cost RM30 a pair and does not require prescription. The lenses are tinted light brown so they can absorb and cut blue light. You can get similar eye glasses from eyewear shops and some pharmacies sell them too.

If you want to try Super Lutein, Japan’s no. 1 supplement for eyes, I can help you get hold of it. Just email me at shireenyong@gmail.com or Whatsapp / call 019 266 4290.

Treat your eyes with tender loving care. It is never too early to start caring for them.

Treating High Fever Naturally

On Thursday morning, Cass woke up at 3:45 a.m. to look for me.  She complained that it was very hot. Her cheeks were flushed and lips were redder than usual. It is not a norm for her to wake up at this ungoldly  hour to look for me and when she does, she is normally unwell. I gave her some water and got her to pee.  She had complained of leg pain and slight headache the night before. Now, that got me very worried. Could she be having a UTI attack? One of Cass’ initial symptoms of a UTI attack are headache and leg / body pain.

At 5:30 a.m. when I woke Cass up to get her ready for school, her body felt like a piece of burning charcoal. I was even more worried. I kept asking her if she felt OK and if she felt any pain at the bladder and kidney region. She said she felt fine but have developed a slight cough. Worries quelled. If she has cough / runny nose, I can safely rule out a UTI.  And I asked her many questions on what she did the day before. It was after questioning her that I found out that when she stayed back for extra co-curricular activities the day before, they were made to run in the 2pm hot sun for about half an hour!  With a sizzling temperature of almost 38C, kids can easily get sick from being grilled by the unforgiving sun or get a heat stroke. Even we adults may not be able to tolerate running round the track in the burning 2pm sun. I will surely have a headache if I am exposed to the hot sun for half an hour.  Crazy teacher!

I gave Cass her usual packet of Izumio the first thing when she woke up on Thursday morning. Then gave her another packet of Izumio to bring to school. I told her to down the packet of hydrogen infused water when she reached school. And to call me from school should she feel unwell and want to go home to rest. When she got home that afternoon, her insatiable appetite seemed to have gone. She could not even finish her bowl of porridge. Her body was warm. After a shower, she asked for an ‘ice cap’ for her head and took a nap.  An ‘ice cap’ which we both aptly named, is a frozen wet towel that I put on her head whenever she has fever.

The next morning, Cass’ body got hotter. I took her temperature and got a shock with the 41 degrees Celsius  reading on the thermometer. Thoughts of brain damage, febrile fits and hallucination raced through my mind coz a fever of 41C is really high.  I continued to give her Izumio and Super Lutein.  But the hubs wasn’t happy that with such shockingly high temperature, I wasn’t giving his princess any fever medicine and pressed me to bring Cass to the doctor. I gave in under pressure, though I knew that I could bring the fever down the natural way.

As I had already predicted, the medical officer on duty was super quick to prescribe Cass with antibiotics without even doing any test on her.  I told him straight that I wanted no antibiotics and even wanted to tell him that I didn’t want any other oral medicine too. But I just paid for the prescribed flu meds to please everyone at home that I had brought Cass to the doctor and had brought medicine home. But I didn’t give Cass the flu meds.  Except for the Volren suppository that the MO insisted to give Cass to bring down the high fever, I gave Cass Izumio (every 4 hourly), Super Lutein (3 capsules a day), raw honey with bee propolis (3 times a day) and showered her body many times throughout the day and night.

Cass was really disappointed that she could not participate in her school jogathon today. But at least she has something to look forward to now – the school’s jogathon next year 🙂

Today (Saturday) Cass woke up with no more fever.  Though she has thick goo and a slight cough, her ravenous appetite has returned, yay!  When a sick child still has a good appetite, you can be rest assured that she is recovering and nothing major is brewing inside. No doubt, I was worried sick when Cass’ temperature kept hovering at 40 – 41 degrees Celsius the entire Friday.  I always believe in healing the feverish body naturally and with lots of rest and not overload it with medicine.

 

Help Your Friend With Cancer

Recently, I visited two close friends at the hospital. One had a nasty bout of kidney infection and another went for a kidney stone blasting keyhole surgery. I brought along a bag of Izumio for each one of my friend.  They were so happy and grateful for the Izumio, which helped them in their recovery.

If you have a family member or friend who is undergoing cancer treatment, bring along some Izumio for him/her to help turn things around quicker.  According to   the US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, hydrogen which has antioxidant properties can be administered to cancer patients to reduce inflammation in tissues and reduce  the effect of oxidation stress.

Neonatal Jaundice

Jaundice is caused by the build-up of bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin is a yellow substance produced when red blood cells are broken down. Jaundice is common in newborn babies because babies have a high level of red blood cells in their blood, which are broken down and replaced frequently. High bilirubin in newborns is caused by a baby’s immature liver that lacks the strength to remove bilirubin from the blood quickly enough. Our three girls were mildly jaundiced at birth but thank God, they recovered pretty fast and no medical treatment was needed for them.

Some babies have jaundice so bad that they require prolonged stay in the hospital.  A friend of mine who recently gave birth to a preemie had to rent a phototherapy machine from the hospital so that her baby could be treated at home.  When her baby recovered after a month, the huge bill for the rental of the phototherapy machine caused a massive big hole to her husband’s wallet.

If you or anyone has a newborn baby with jaundice, it is worth giving Izumio hydrogen water a try.  I have two testimonials to share here from two of our members:

12 days old baby of my cousin. Serum bilirubin(SB) reading at 234umol/L upon admission. Baby undergone phototherapy but after 24hours, reading only went down to 233umol/L. Gave my cousin a pack of IZ . Fed her once only about 1 oz. Blood test done 5 hours later – SB reading went down to 203umol/L! And it further went down to 181umol/L 6 hours later and she was discharged. The parents are in awe! Izumio rocks!

In another testimonial, our member’s colleague had a newborn baby with jaundice. He made 2 oz of milk with Izumio water in the bottle. The baby was given ONLY 1 time consumption. Shockingly the reading descended to safe level after the Bilirubin test the next day and the baby was discharged.

The Accidental Millionaire Farmer

This is by far one of the most inspiring stories I’ve heard.  It is a true story of a 74-year old sickly farmer with a switch of fate – from sickly to healthy and from poor to rich after he consumed Izumio and Super Lutein in the hope of treating his chronic diabetes.

The picture below shows Dr Siti’s Facebook posting about Ah Pek the farmer and accidental millionaire.  Dr Siti is a medical doctor and a consumer of Izumio and Super Lutein.  Ah Pek was Dr Siti’s patient. He had chronic diabetes and had a ulcer on his leg which didn’t heal. Ah Pek was on insulin jabs and his weight dropped from 75kg to 45kg. He would frequently visit Dr Siti’s clinic in Jementah with his family members supporting him as he was too weak.  One day, Ah Pek came to his clinic with his sugar level dropped to 5 mmol/l.  He was then off insulin jabs.  It was then that Ah Pek introduced Izumio and Super Lutein to Dr Siti. And the rest they say is history.

The picture below shows Dr Siti and Ah Pek holidaying in Italy recently. They had both won a free holiday to Italy, courtesy of Naturally Plus.  At 74 years old, Ah Pek is in the pink of health. He could explore the Vatican City and climb up to Coloseum.

Just a farmer and Ah Pek is now earning a 5-figure monthly income from Naturally Plus. Next year, he will be well on his way to earn a 6-figure monthly income.  And he achieved all these in less than 4 years, amazing!

It is wonderful that Ah Pek has his health and life back (when Dr Jalil expected him to be in deep trouble) and is traveling the world now and very fit to do so!

Ah Pek only has 3 sponsors / downlines – his wife, Dr Siti and another lady 😂😂😂 and yet he is able to earn such a comfortable passive income from Naturally Plus.  If only I could be half as ‘lucky’ as him. Well, with patience and persistence, I believe that I can. Give me another 2 years ya!

Izumio Is Not Magic

Sometime I get comments from customers that they do not feel any significant changes to their health or they do not see the immediate healing that they expect after taking Izumio.

When this happens, I will walk them through the Izumio dosage code to make sure they fully understand that Izumio is not MAGIC. It is purely antioxidants that are strong in scavenging free radicals off your cells to heal you, but hello, if you have 1,000 units of free radicals and take 1 packet of Izumio per day, how then do you expect to get better? Or if you have been weak for years, or suffering from a particular ailment for years, or if you are not getting sufficient sleep, or if you are worrying about something, thinking negatively, then how would 1 packet of Izumio heal you?

First and foremost, if you have been suffering from an ailment for 10 years, it would be fair to allow these natural products at least 10 months to heal you, don’t you think? Izumio is not MAGIC.

Secondly, if you keep having negative thoughts and nagging worries in your head, you are slowly poisoning your body with stress.  I am guilty as charged too! I am a good worrier and am chronically sleep deprived and that is why I need to drink at least 2 packets of Izumio a day. And yet continue with my healthy eating and 5x a week exercise in order to stay in top form.   Do you know that stress is the biggest and fastest generator of free radicals? You would probably need 10 packets of Izumio daily to heal you if you had the flu or feeling under the weather.

Datuk Lee Chong Wei drank Izumio during the Olympic London 2012 Badminton Final.

Understand that our body is like a vessel. In it we have oil. Dirty oil that represents all our free radicals that we get from breathing (yes breathing oxygen generates free radicals too!), unhealthy food (many do not even understand what the term unhealthy food is), bad thoughts, environmental pollutants, stress, smoke, you name it. And then we pour in Izumio. How do we know how much Izumio we need to clean out all that crap, the dirty oil, before we can heal? We don’t know. All we can do is to keep taking it, whether it be over a period of time or a higher dosage in a shorter time, and allow it to do its work to remove the dirty oil. The more water you pour into the vessel, the higher the chance of the dirty oil coming out from the spout, isn’t it? We cannot see what is within your body but rest be assured, healing is happening slowly but surely. And one day, you will wake up feeling like a million bucks thinking hey, I don’t remember the last time I had that headache! It means that the time has come that Izumio has washed out all the dirty oil in your body and healed it.

And then you go and do something else the next week to add in more dirty oil. It is a vicious cycle. Unless you are willing to change and lead a healthy lifestyle, you will have a surplus of free radicals and WILL be sick. Izumio is not MAGIC. It is a powerful antioxidant that will help your body to heal naturally. It is better than drugs. Drugs can relief you immediately but it isn’t healing the root cause of your problem.

I am glad to know that one of my favorite celebrities, Daphe Iking is also taking Izumio. Read her Facebook post here.

Preventing Eczema Naturally

Our 3 girls had eczema on their faces during the first 6 months of their lives.  Alycia’s eczema flare-ups were the worst of the 3 girls. Being a first time new mom, I trusted our pediatricians fully.  They prescribed her with hydrocortisone cream and sure enough, the eczema would be tamed quickly as it contains steroid. But the moment I stopped applying the cream, the eczema would flare up again. It hurt me just as much as it hurt my babies to see their faces (especially on the chin and around the mouth) covered with patches of raw and red itchy skin.

Eczema or Atopic Dermatitis is a very common skin disorder in young children and even in adults.  Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin condition that commonly starts during infancy and continues through into childhood. Some people outgrow the condition while some people will continue to have it into adulthood.  Thankfully our girls outgrew eczema pretty quickly.

If your child or know of any child suffering from eczema, you may wish to introduce Izumio hydrogen water into his/her diet. The product is 100% safe even for babies and children.

Also do note that for eczema, if you have been on steroidal creams, it takes a longer time to heal as there is increased amounts of toxins within the body.  I have been told that if you truly do heal your gut, you CAN heal from eczema or at the very least keep it very controlled. Get rid of toxins from your body and your guts will heal.

Izumio is high quality hydrogenated water. Whilst it can nourish and heal the body, if you keep abusing your body with junk, then of course you have to keep consuming more nutrients to fight off more free radicals, isn’t it? Common sense, right?  So eat clean, stave off stress (try ok!), get sufficient sleep and stop putting crap into your body. If you have been battling eczema all your life, maybe it’s time you re-look at your diet and lifestyle. Do a spring cleaning and revamp your diet and lifestyle and I am sure your eczema flare-ups will be gone or at the very least be reduced.

Here’s a little boy who had chronic eczema on his face. After consuming 1 packet of Izumio for 6 months and eliminating trigger foods from his diet, he now has tofu smooth baby skin. I am so happy for him and his mummy!
