First Sunday In 2018 (7 January 2018)

After church, I took Uber with the girls to Pavillion to meet the hubs.  Our lunch on the first Sunday of this year was at Din Tai Fung, the hubs’ favorite Taiwanese restaurant of all times.

In an article published on January 17, 1993, the New York Times rated Din Tai Fung as one of the top ten gourmet restaurants in the world (Din Tai Fung was the only Chinese-run restaurant to receive this accolade).  We have always been  very satisfied with the food at Din Tai Fung.

The first Sunday of 2018 did not start well for Cass and me.

After Sunday School, Cass flexed her biceps at the monkey bar at the church playground while waiting for me. She spent a good 20 minutes hanging like a monkey in the merciless hot sun.  After service ended, we walked back to the car under the sizzling hot sun. It was exceptionally hot that day, easily at 38~40C.  Puteri Lilin (Candle Princess) me suffered  first-degree burn on the cheeks, which made me looked like I had just returned from a tropical beach holiday that lasted for 2 days.

In the car on the drive back home, Cass complained of headache, stomach pain and leg pain.  The headache continued until the next morning when I woke her up for school.  Her body felt like burning charcoal. I checked her temperature and it was a burning 40.4C!  I quickly gave her a packet of Izumio and  a suppository to bring the temperature down pronto.

Then I remembered that Cass is exactly like me, a Puteri Lilin with fair skin and with a propensity to have fevers whenever exposed to the hot afternoon sun for prolonged periods. Even 5 minutes of exposure to the hot sun would cause me a throbbing headache.


Cass with an ‘ice cap’ on her forehead.  The ‘ice cap’ is a frozen wet hanky that Cass swears by in bringing her fever down. She would prepare the ‘ice cap’ whenever she feels feverish or hot.  When she has fevers, I would diligently ensure that an’ice cap’ is on her head / forehead throughout the day and night.  The last time that Cass had a fever was in February last year, after the first day of CoCo activity  in school after running in the field in the unforgiving afternoon sun.

Today is the second day that Cass is on sick leave and thank God the temperature has made a descent.  But after an entire night of checking on Cass, I am now beginning to experience chills and a back-breaking back pain. I am always at the mercy of sleep deprivation.

After a horrendous 11-hour bumper-to-bumper crawl from Singapore back to KL on a van during the school holidays recently, I have developed a bad backache.

On Sunday after we returned from Pavillion, Cass and I experienced a spell of insatiable thirst. We were gulping down packets of Izumio and plain water but no amount of water that we drank could quench our deep thirst.  Our lips were scarlet red and our cheeks were flushed.

I Googled to find out what the symptoms of a heat stroke are and realized that we may have suffered from a mild case of heat stroke.

Symptoms of heat stroke:
Heat stroke results from prolonged exposure to high temperatures — usually in combination with dehydration — which leads to failure of the body’s temperature control system. The medical definition of heat stroke is a core body temperature greater than 40C, with complications involving the central nervous system that occur after exposure to high temperatures.

Other symptoms may include:

Throbbing headache
Dizziness and light-headedness
Lack of sweating despite the heat
Red, hot, and dry skin
Muscle weakness or cramps
Nausea and vomiting
Rapid heartbeat, which may be either strong or weak
Rapid, shallow breathing
Behavioral changes such as confusion, disorientation, or staggering
Seizures
Unconsciousness


Breakfast for everyone this morning :  pork ribs + carrot + millet + quinoa + rice porridge slow cooked in the crockpot for 12 hours.

Organic Barley, Lemon Grass And Pandan Drink

I made a big pot of organic barley drink today. The concoction composes of organic unhulled barley, organic Job’s Tears, organic lemon grass powder and organic pandan (screw pine leaves) powder.

Due to its alkalinity, barley water has been used since ancient times to treat various digestive conditions. Barley water is prepared by using one part of barley with 15 parts of water, which is boiled till it becomes 2/3rd of its basic solution. Being extremely alkaline, barley water is also beneficial for those suffering from gallstones. The water-soluble fibre content in it helps prevent formation of stones and cures existing ones. It is also a good remedy for kidney problems and is a traditionally acclaimed drink for supporting and nourishing kidneys in times of stress.

Directions:
~Wash the barley pearls and Job’s Tears several times.

~When the barley pearls and Job’s Tears have turned mushy (about 1 – 1.5 hours later in medium flame), add in the organic lemon grass powder and organic pandan leaves powder and stir until the powders are completely dissolved. Then turn off the fire.  I added 1 teaspoon each.

~ Pour out the barley water using a stainless steel sieve.

As this is my first time trying out this concoction, I didn’t add too much of both powders, lest the drink tastes weird. But the drink turned out great!  I love the color of the drink, which has a pretty hue of green.  The drink is really refreshing when chilled. Even Cass who absolutely hates barley water has no issue gulping her cuppa green barley down without pinching her nose.  This girl always drinks her barley water with her nose pinched *roll eyes*

The next time I prepare this concoction again, I will add more lemon grass and pandan powder. I prefer it to have a stronger aroma of lemon grass and pandan.

Pandan leaves are slightly bitter in nature, thus, do go easy on the pandan powder.

Health benefits of lemon grass:

Lemongrass is used for treating digestive tract spasms, stomachache, high blood pressure, convulsions, pain, vomiting, cough, achy joints (rheumatism), fever, the common cold, type-2 Diabetes and exhaustion. It is also used to kill germs and as a mild astringent.

Prevention of bacteria: Lemongrass might help prevent the growth of some bacteria and yeast.

Lowers Cholesterol: Studies have shown that the regular consumption of lemongrass has shown significant results in sustaining healthy levels of triglycerides and reducing the LDL cholesterol in the body.

Detoxification: Lemongrass helps in cleansing and flushing harmful toxic wastes out of the body, as a result of its diuretic properties.

Cancer: Lemongrass is effective in treating various types of cancers without affecting the healthy normal cells of the body. Research conducted to prove the anti-cancerous activity of lemongrass has shown promising outcomes in the prevention of skin cancer. Studies have shown that a certain component, citral, which is present in lemongrass, helps in inhibiting the growth of hepatic cancer cells during the initial phases and prevents any further production of cancerous cells. Another study has provided supporting evidence regarding the anti-proliferative effect of citral in impeding the growth of human breast cancer cells and the induction of apoptosis.

Health benefits of pandan (screw pine leaves):

Reduce Cramps / pain relief
If you have cramps regularly, you can use pandan leaves as a traditionally cure to help reduce those cramps. Pandan leaves can also help you with gastrointestinal tract cramps, especially stomach cramps. You can make pandan leaves tea and drink it to help you reduce your cramps.

Anti-carcinogenic Properties
Another amazing benefit of pandan leaves is that they are anti-cancerous. It can counteract the effect of toxins and inhibits cancer cell development.

Reduce Fevers
Pandan can help in reducing fever. It is a traditional remedy in treating fevers.

Other health benefits of pandan include : mild laxative for children, detoxifying the body, lowers high blood pressure, helps to strengthen weak nerves, boosts appetite and it can also help men with impotence.

 

Exam Season Is Here Again

The dreaded exam season is here again!  This time, I am attempting to go green.  To save papers and printer cartridge, I am cutting down on the printing of test papers.  Instead, Cass goes to the website where the test papers are accessible and writes down her answers on a piece of recycled paper where  I will then refer to the website to mark.

Here, Cass is working on a BM test paper. She’s wearing an anti-blue light glasses which I bought from the Naturally Plus office. It’s mine and she always steals it from me whenever she uses the laptop and handphone.  I am going to get  three more pairs of this eye glasses for the girls soon.

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. Added blue light exposure from computer screens, smartphones and other digital devices might increase a person’s risk of macular degeneration later in life.

Our girls also pop 1-2 capsules of Super Lutein a day to protect their eye health and overall health. Let me know if you are interested in Super Lutein as I can help you to order it.

 

 

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.

Funky Wigs

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I used to have thick luscious hair but I have lost a great deal of my precious locks after the birth of my children. Blame it on the hormones. Thankfully when my babies started to creep and crawl, I saw lots of baby hair sprouting and standing atop my crown 😆😅 What glorious sight!

A few months ago, I started to shed hair again. The amount of hair that fell off my scalp after each hair wash was worrying. I wondered what was wrong. Could it be that I am aging? Was it caused by stress and worriment? Or do I lack  certain nutrients?

I later learned that my hair loss was contributed by iron deficiency. After my diagnosis of being anemic with low red blood cells early this year (no thanks to a uterine fibroid), I did some research on anemia and learned that being anemic can cause hair loss too. Ahhh, this explains the unusual hair loss!

I am now on a high iron diet to boost my red blood cells. Hopefully my effort pays off and my hair follicles will strengthen, else I will have to get myself some wigs online!  Actually it’s not that bad an idea to wear a wig.  Celebrities don on them and they look terrific.  Most times, you can’t even tell when they wear a wig.  Keira Knightley has been wearing a wig for years and no one realized it initially.

Hair loss happens to even the best of us. Wigs give us fresh hope, positive transformation and confidence.  At BlackHairspray.com, you’ll find a complete range of wigs, weaves, lace front wigs, ponytails, braids and beauty supplies.

Looking at the wig samples at BlackHairspray.com (OMG, they look like real hair!) gives me the itch to try out a wig too! Wigs will come in handy on bad hair days. I’ve plenty of such awful days. 😄

Meal-Replacement Shakes

Designed to have fewer calories than an average meal, meal-replacement shakes include all the vitamins and nutrients needed for the rest of the day. While taking such shakes, one needs to make sure it is followed by healthy dietary and lifestyle habits in order to drop some weight.

Generally, it is a good idea to drink the shake for breakfast in the morning. It goes without saying that your dinner, lunch and snacks ought to be low in calories and sugar-free. Such changes make you lose weight faster and easier to sustain.

Here are a number of tips on what properties to look for:

Avoid sugar
When your liver is unable to absorb the excessive amount of sugar, it is turned into fat.

You should avoid the following foods, among others:
~ Spirits (and alcohol)
~ Sweets, pastries, cakes, biscuits
~ Jarred fruits

Fruits can be consumed in larger quantities quite safely as fructose doesn’t make you gain weight like sugar. However, it is best to eat everything in moderation. Fruit is an excellent choice as a healthy source of carbohydrates.

Low-caloric diet makes our body use fat as fuel
Consuming excessive calories, your liver transforms them into fat. If you alter your dietary habits and avoid sugar, your body will use fat for energy. Seek shakes that are lower than 200 calories. Also, avoid eating foods low on nutrient properties such as donuts, French fries, corn dogs, popcorn, etc. Such foods are rich in calories and low in nutrients.

Know that there are different carbohydrates
After consumption, they can either be transformed into sugar or as protein. Simple carbohydrates are easier to digest providing us with energy in a short term. Dairy products and juices are the sources of such carbs. Complex carbohydrates work vice versa – they take more time to digest, yet provide more energy in a longer term (grain products, greengrocery). Thus, aim for shakes with food fibers and low on carbs so that they fill you up and you shed weight faster.

20g of protein or less
In addition to enhancing your metabolic process, shakes also help to get rid of fat and keep you full longer. For you to choose the right shake, choose one with 20g of protein per serving.

meal replacement shakes with fruit

Add greengrocery in your menu
They are rich in fiber, which is paramount for you to lose weight. It goes without saying that fruits and vegetables are the key to good health due to the abundance of vitamins and minerals. What’s more is that they reduce your craving for unhealthy snacks, give you energy and are low in sugar.

Cut Down On Salt
We should aim for less than 1500 mg of sodium per day, and definitely not more than 2300 mg. 1500 mg of sodium amounts to 0.75 teaspoons or 3.75 grams of salt per day, while 2300 mg amounts to one teaspoon or 6 grams of salt per day. Try to avoid eating foods high in salt.

Meal Replacement Shakes: A load of crap or loads of help?

 

GMOs and gluten-free
Your diet should be free from GMO and gluten containing products. This includes paying close attention to the greengrocery you buy.

There are plenty of shakes available in the market to meet the preferences of vegans, lactose intolerant patients, those on a weight loss diet, sports enthusiasts, etc.

With the above tips, I am sure you now have a better idea on how to choose a proper nutrition shake.

 

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 hydrogen water for each one of my friend.  They were so happy and grateful for the hydrogen infused water, which helped them in their recovery.

If you have a family member or friend who is undergoing cancer treatment, bring along some hydrogen water 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.

Sweet Poison

I was in school this morning to bring lunch for Cass and Drama Queen. They both need to stay back after school for extra curricular activities. At the canteen while waiting for Cass to have her recess, I had a shock when a Year 3 pint size girl put her plate of food on the table. On the plate was a piece of roti canai covered by a pile of WHITE SUGAR. At the first glance, I thought she only had white sugar on her plate but on taking a closer look, I saw the piece of roti underneath the sugar.  Oh. my. Gawd  🙀 I whispered to Cass to have a look and she too gave me a “WHAT?” unbelievable look.

By the time I whipped out my phone to discreetly take a picture of the sugar laden roti canai, the girl had already whacked down half the piece of roti canai and white sugar. There was even MORE sugar on her plate when she first bought it. *shudders* 😨😨

Image may contain: one or more people

The girl probably wasn’t informed by her parents that white sugar is bad for her. Or it could be she is so deprived of sugary food at home that she often takes sweet indulgences in school sans the chagrin of her parents.  I found out that my girls bought junk food from the school canteen when they  first started primary school, to taste the sweet  freedom of buying food on their own 😐

Why is sugar bad for you?

1. It causes metabolic dysfunction. Eating too much sugar causes a barrage of symptoms known as classic metabolic syndrome. These include weight gain, abdominal obesity, decreased HDL and increased LDL, elevated blood sugar, elevated triglycerides and high blood pressure. It increases your uric acid levels.

Sugar is Bad Written on a Blackboard

2. Added Sugar Contains No Essential Nutrients and is Bad For Your Teeth
You’ve probably heard this a million times before… but it’s worth repeating. Added sugars (like sucrose and high fructose corn syrup) contain a whole bunch of calories with NO essential nutrients. For this reason, they are called “empty” calories.

3. Added Sugar is High in Fructose, Which Can Overload Your Liver
In order to understand what is so bad about sugar, then you need to understand what it is made of. Before sugar enters the bloodstream from the digestive tract, it is broken down into two simple sugars… glucose and fructose.

Glucose is found in every living cell on the planet. If we don’t get it from the diet, our bodies produce it. Fructose is different. Our bodies do not produce it in any significant amount and there is no physiological need for it. The thing with fructose is that it can only be metabolized by the liver in any significant amounts.

This is not a problem if we eat a little bit (such as from fruit) or we just finished an exercise session. In this case, the fructose will be turned into glycogen and stored in the liver until we need it.

However, if the liver is full of glycogen (much more common), eating a lot of fructose overloads the liver, forcing it to turn the fructose into fat. When repeatedly eating large amounts of sugar, this process can lead to fatty liver and all sorts of serious problems. Keep in mind that all of this does NOT apply to fruit. It is almost impossible to overeat fructose by eating fruit.

4. Overloading The Liver With Fructose Can Cause Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
When fructose get turned into fat in the liver, it is shipped out as VLDL cholesterol particles. However, not all of the fat gets out, some of it can lodge in the liver. This can lead to Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). Studies show that individuals with fatty liver consume up to 2-3 times as much fructose as the average person.

5. Sugar Can Cause Insulin Resistance, a Stepping Stone Towards Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes
Insulin is a very important hormone in the body. It allows glucose (blood sugar) to enter cells from the bloodstream and tells the cells to start burning glucose instead of fat. Having too much glucose in the blood is highly toxic and one of the reasons for complications of diabetes, like blindness and kidney damage.

6. Sugar Can Cause Cancer
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide and is characterized by uncontrolled growth and multiplication of cells. Insulin is one of the key hormones in regulating this sort of growth. For this reason, many scientists believe that having constantly elevated insulin levels (a consequence of sugar consumption) can contribute to cancer. In addition, the metabolic problems associated with sugar consumption are a known driver of inflammation, another potential cause of cancer. Multiple studies show that people who eat a lot of sugar are at a much higher risk of getting cancer.

7. Sugar Causes Massive Dopamine Release in The Brain, Thus Is Highly Addictive
Sugar can be addictive for a lot of people. Like abusive drugs, sugar causes a release of dopamine in the reward center of the brain.

8. Sugar is a Leading Contributor to Obesity in Both Children and Adults
The way sugar affects hormones and the brain is a recipe for fat gain disaster.

9. It Ain’t The Fat… It’s SUGAR That Raises Your Cholesterol and Gives You Heart Disease
For many decades, people have blamed saturated fat for heart disease… which is the #1 killer in the world. However, new studies are showing that saturated fat is harmless.
The evidence is mounting that sugar, NOT fat, may be one of the leading drivers of heart disease via the harmful effects of fructose on metabolism.

Studies show that large amounts of fructose can raise triglycerides, small, dense LDL and oxidized LDL, raise blood glucose and insulin levels and increase abdominal obesity… in as little as 10 weeks. These are all major risk factors for heart disease.

Bottom line: Since sugar is capable of causing so many health issues, go easy on sugar. There are many ways that you can cut down on the consumption of sugar. You can drink your coffee or tea sans the sugar. Bake your cakes and cookies with reduced sugar or use sugar alternative like black strap molasses or stevia. Forgo the sugar-coated doughnut for breakfast and replace it with a piece of fruit or a bowl of oats with nuts and seeds. I have not eaten sweets and candies for a long time and my girls rarely ask me to buy these sweet treats as they know that mummy’s answer is an outright NO.

Having said this, the focus should be on a healthful approach and not people rushing to one side or the other. Moderation is key, experts say. For example, the American Heart Association recommends that women limit themselves to about 6 teaspoons of sugar a day, or about 100 calories. Men should aim for about 9 teaspoons a day, or 150 calories.

For me, when I am hankering for something sweet, I always grab some nuts or a fruit 😊

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 hydrogen infused 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! Iz**** rocks!

No automatic alt text available.

 

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.
