What Causes Cancer? A shocking truth..

I was shocked the first time I heard how and WHY cancer happened. I was also surprised that the medical doctors I have met throughout this journey never explained to me WHY cancer happens at the first place, because we need to know the WHY to get to the prevention/improvement. This 8 minute video by Shafin de Zane explains well the cancer happens at the first place because our cells are trying to protect itself by mutating, otherwise it would die because it is swimming in a sea of toxins. And also, it shares how cancer can be prevented quite easily. Please do watch this and share with others! Here are many other great video resources to encourage cancer patients and their family! My mum and I watched a lot of encouraging videos during her recovery journey that not just lifted our spirits, but also educated our minds. These are great videos on health for everyone, really. Not just cancer patients. Sharing this collection of free videos I could find online to encourage you all too! Please …

Purwa Water Distiller

Water Distiller: Purwa Water Distiller

After sharing with many people my concern on over-chlorination in our drinking water, quite a few people have asked me which water distiller I use. I use the Purwa Water Distiller. Firstly, what is distillation? Distillation is nature’s way of cleaning water. Water evaporates from the earth’s surface after rain, leaving impurities behind, and re-condenses into clouds to produce rain. Distillation process replicates this same mechanism. “Distillation is a water purification process that uses a heat source to vaporize water and separate it from contaminants and other undesirable elements commonly found in ground and surface water. Distillation heats raw (untreated) water until the water reaches its boiling point and begins to vaporize. The heat is then kept at a constant temperature to maintain water vaporization while prohibiting other undesirable elements from vaporizing. Water has a lower boiling point than salt and other mineral sediments. This process also separates the water molecules from microscopic, disease-causing organisms. Once all of the water has vaporized, the vapor is led into a condenser, where, upon cooling, the water reverts …

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 …

Is Chlorine Safe In Our Drinking Water?

The focus on drinking 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 portion of the cancer risk associated with drinking chlorinated water; duration of exposure to chlorinated surface water was associated with bladder cancer risk among women and nonsmokers of both sexes. (1)  Research from the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands discovered that people who swam in chlorinated pools or polluted waters as children had 2.2 to 2.4 times the risk of developing melanoma compared to those who did not swim in chlorinated waters. (2) “Chlorination of water rich in organic material is known to produce a complex mixture of organochlorine compounds, including mutagenic and carcinogenic substances. A historical cohort study of 621,431 persons living in …

Zenxin Organic Park @ Malaysia

Triggered by this opinion article published by Straits Times, “Is organic food really free from pesticides?”, we decided to pay Zenxin Organic Park in Johor, Malaysia, a visit. Since we buy so much organic produce from Zenxin in Singapore, we wanted to learn – what makes a farm organic, if the produce are really free from pesticides and why is organic produce good for us? Before embarking on the farm tour details, I wanted to learn – what makes a farm an organic farm? Since 2008, the Zenxin production chain has been certified organic by NASAA Australia (www.nasaa.com.au), which is accredited by IFOAM, and they strictly comply to the international organic standards. Zenxin’s compost factory is Certified Organic Input Manufacturer, their farms are Certified Organic Producers and their processing houses are Certified Organic Processors. Mr Tai Sengyee, Executive Director of Zenxin Organic, explains that in order to be certified organic, the farm has to fulfill a few main criteria including: No synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides Natural source of water Sustainable system with 10% land set aside for …

Top 6 Food Ingredients that is making you sick… (and more likely to get Cancer)

Before my mum was diagnosed with cancer, I hardly read food labels. Because I struggled with my weight, the most I would do is to glance at the calories and fat levels before deciding on the purchase. Now that I am aware and actively checking ingredient lists, it shocks me how much potentially harmful ingredients I was ingesting without realizing. So I took a walk around a random supermarket in Singapore today to see common ingredients we should avoid to improve our health to share with all of you. And I hope you too, will start looking at food ingredient labels when purchasing food for yourself and your families.  1) Sugar (and refined sweeteners) If you have cancer, sugar in any form is a big no-no. All cells, including cancer cells, need glucose in order to produce the energy necessary for survival. Cancer cells have developed a very effective strategy (glycolysis or fermentation), to ensure they survive; they grow many extra insulin receptors – 10-19x more than regular cells – on their surfaces in order to …

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 …

Dr Thomas Lodi – The Miracle Doctor whose team reversed my mum’s Stage 4 Colon Cancer

When I knew about my mum’s terminal colon cancer condition, and then heard about Dr. Thomas Lodi who had helped many Stage 4 cancer patients achieve remission, I turned the web upside down for information on theg rod  and I couldn’t find much consolidated information about him. It is a good thing I knew someone whose Stage 4 liver cancer was reversed by Dr Lodi, or we might have missed this chance to save my mum. Why mainstream medical knowledge and statistics gave my mum a death sentence, while Doctor Lodi provided hope. My mum received 11 weeks of treatments under Dr Lodi’s team of Thai doctors (he is the consultant while the team of Thai doctors administer the treatment). After concluding the treatment, her CEA cancer markets dropped from 16.5 to 2 (already normal yay! As the reference range is 0-5). Yes,  I went home to Tan Tock Seng Hospital to check this out, and CEA cancer makers were also 2 in Singapore. So, I feel a need to share what i now know about Dr. Lodi …

Feeling Positive about Negative Ions – Negative Ion Clothes from Japan

Specific disclaimer for this post: Negative Ion Clothing is NOT a medical device, a cure, a therapeutic tool, or medication. 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 …

A Tale of Coffee Enemas, Wheatgrass and Probiotic Implants – Cancer Treatment

“What? Why do we need to put coffee up her a**?” That was my first response the first time I learnt about coffee enemas and that I needed to do it for my mum, so I COMPLETELY understand your response if you are thinking the same thing. But hey, if it is going to help her recover from cancer and I won’t lose her in 6 months, I am trying it! History of Coffee Enemas An enema is “a fluid injected into the rectum for the purpose of clearing out the bowel, or of administering drugs or food.” Enema comes from the Greek en-hienai, meaning to “send or inject into.” The earliest medical text in existence, the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus, (1,500 B.C.) mentions it; the Pharaoh had a “guardian of the anus,” a special doctor one of whose purposes was to administer the royal enema. [1] During the  17th Century, it was common practice in Western society to enjoy as many as three or four enemas a day. It is recorded that King Louis XIII had more than …
