The Truth about Green Juices & Smoothies

Are you always opting for a green juice or smoothie to accompany or replace your meal instead of ingesting the vegetables itself? If you are a wellness champion doing this regularly, you must read on to ensure that you are drinking the right greens for your long term health! Drinking green juices and smoothies is becoming an uptrend among health aficionados, who believe that drinking them every day or a few times each week is healthy and helps in alkalising the body. This is also especially so with numerous celebrities such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Blake Lively who swear by this special diet that makes them feel energised, enjoy glowing skin and shed pounds effortlessly. “Kale, celery, apple, cucumber and a squeeze of lemon. I make my own juice every day at home. It really makes a difference. I can feel my body – everything’s going to way it should and I then I don’t feel guilty if I don’t get to eat my five a day of vegetables.”[1]             …

Top 9 Home Remedies for Eczema and Psoriasis Relief (Tried and tested!!!)

Eczema is a common skin condition that is marked by itchy and inflamed patches of skin. The most common type of eczema is known as atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema. [1] Psoriasis manifest similar symptoms as eczema but it is often more severe, characterized by patches of abnormal skin, which look red and scaly. They may vary in severity from small and localized to complete body coverage.   Symptoms of eczema and psoriasis can range from mild – such as having dry, sensitive skin; to severe – red and inflamed skin with very bad itching, flaky skin, discolouration on patches of skin to blisters with blood oozing out of it due to persistent scratching. I suffered from bad childhood eczema and the scars on my leg still give me shudders, recalling the deep itch within that even scratching cannot sooth. I am sure any of you who suffered from this unbearable itch will be able to relate! The most exasperating thing about autoimmune issues like eczema and psoriasis is: there is no exact cause and cure! Eczema …

Getting rid of Chlorine exposure in your showers!

Following my research on the potential ills of over-chlorination in our drinking water, I became very curious about how much chlorine we absorb during our showers. Apparently, we absorb more chlorine during a 10-minute shower than by drinking 8 glasses of tap water. (1) Most substances applied on skins can be absorbed into our blood streams via our porous skin within minutes, not to mention our skin is our largest organ and is fully soaking in chlorinated water! This video shows the speed at which chlorine can be absorbed into our blood stream: Video: See how quickly chlorine is absorbed into our bodies through the skin. The focus on chlorinating water has been to eliminate pathogens, and with good reason. According to a study conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council, more than 120 million people (about 50% of the population) may get unsafe water  for consumption. Hence, chlorination of drinking water significantly reduced mortality rates associated with waterborne pathogen. However, research is starting to reveal the risks of over-chlorination. For example, some have claimed that a substantial …

Hypothyroidism Recovery without Conventional Medication – Testimonial

Kickstarting my health transformation series with my father in law’s testimonial on not relying on medication for Hypothyroidism. In April 2014, he was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, with TSH , Thyroid peroxidase Ab and Thyroglobulin Ab all above normal range. He had feel feeling fatigued for some time despite exercising very regularly. He was advised to start going on thyroxine medication to curb the symptoms. Hypothyroidism – Before. Blood test report on 11th April 2014 After doing some research, we advised him to try to avoid taking the thyroxine because the body might adjust by producing even less hormones if we artificially supply the body with thyroxine. We challenged him to be a raw, vegan diet while combining with wearing some negative ion clothes. He changed his lifestyle for the subsequent 8 weeks: Breakfast: Raw Vegetable and Fruit blend Lunch: Salad Dinner: Raw Vegetable and Fruit blend/Salad Daily: Wheatgrass shot Wearing Negative Ion Singlet (10,000 negative ions/cc air) and sleeping on the Negative Ion Bedpad (100,000 negative ions/cc air) We expected the TSH reading to improve, but …

How can Negative Ions help with Hypertension, Cardiovascular and Lung Diseases?

In my earlier article on negative ions, I explained why negative ions are generally good for us, how much negative ions we need vs how much we are actually getting, why negative ions help us fend off free radicals,  and how negative ions can improve immunity especially for cancer patients in particular. For most of us relatively healthy folks, negative ions can still help our health and PREVENT any major health issues from developing. I am compiling my research to summarize how negative ions can help improve various health conditions. This article will focus on Hypertension, Cardiovascular Disease and Lung Diseases. Negative Ions – Hypertension, Cardiovascular and Lung Diseases 1) The accumulation of fats leads to increased formation of free radicals and potential inflammatory reactions within the vascular cells and tissues. Further compounding the problem, accumulation of fats within the blood vessels also leads to narrowing of the blood vessels, resulting in overall increase in blood supply to other parts of the body. (1) Negative ions help in stabilization of the functions of the heart by promoting its muscle …

Feeling Positive about Negative Ions – Negative Ion Clothes from Japan

Nefful products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease and no warranty or representation is made in this post with regards to its ability to do so. This post is based on my own experience and personal research. You are advised to seek professional medical advice for your own health issues. To expose my mum to high density of negative ions to enhance her self-healing abilities, I got my mum negative ion clothes that are made in Japan in Singapore. These negative ion clothes have been around for ~60 years, and I cannot believe I never heard of them before this! I personally believe in the huge benefits of negative ions because within 1 month of exposing my mum constantly to 100,000-500,000 negative ions per cc/air everyday, I saw her cancer markers drop from 22 to 16.5! That was before we made changes to her diet and lifestyle so wearing the negative ions …

Journey to Healthy Living – Part 2 – Colon Hydrotherapy

I have been embarking on a health living journey, with my mum who is battling Stage 4 Colon Cancer. My first entry spoke about Electro Lymphatic Therapy (ELT) and today, I wanted to share my Colon HydroTherapy, more commonly known as colonics, experience. Did you know that 70% of our immune system comes from the gut and gastrointestinal tract? Well, neither did I till now. We require a healthy balance of good bacteria and ZERO toxins/parasites in our gastrointestinal (GI) tract to have a healthy functioning immune system? The need for Colon HydroTherapy (Colonics) roots from the belief that our diet has deviated so much from what our pre-historic ancestors used to eat (high fibre, nuts, raw vegetables), that our gastrointestinal tract cannot fully digest all the food we now eat, especially animal proteins. “The Hunzakuts are estimated to live, on average, to about 115 years old…[Their] diet consists of drinking glacier water, raw…and eat leafy green or root vegetables.” – www.organiclives.org As such, a lot of remnant food is stuck in the large intestine and rectum, causing …

Journey to Healthy Living – Part 1 – Electro Lymphatic Therapy

As some of you may know, my mum was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. The journey since Feb 21 2014, the day of diagnosis, is a story for another time. Long story short, the Singapore oncologists gave her 6 months to live without treatment, 2-3 years with indefinite chemotherapy. Ironically, even though they only gave my mum 6 months to live without treatment, they also said we could go for 1-2 months holiday before starting conventional chemotherapy treatment. After a lot of prayers and consideration, we decided to use the 1-2 months “holiday” to bring her overseas for some alternative natural treatments. It has been only 1 week since the natural treatments started, but she already feels more energetic after a lot of detox-ing. In fact, her week 1 CEA cancer markers after 5 days of treatment dropped from 16.5 to 13.9! Praise God! 2 of the therapies my mum will be undergoing for detox are Electro-Lymphatic Therapy and Colon HydroTherapy (Colonics), which I decided to give a try myself on my own …
