The Issue of Eating And Drinking....
I was discussing about eating and drinking at the same time with my best friend the other day. The issue was about how effective digestion when we eat and drink at the same time.
I remember I read an article about how a Great Grandpa of 95 years old who is still able to live like a 60 years old lifestyle. One of his top secrets was not to drink any fluid immediately after meal. He said that it has kept him healthy that way. Come to think of it, he is right. How often do we drink immediately or drink while we eat?
The explanation I got from most medical practitioners are that our digestive system works the best with less liquid in the stomach. Our 'stomach juice' (hydrochloric acid) reacts with the food we eat. It then passes through our small intestine and finally to the large intestine which we sometimes call it colon. The process is actually much more complex that what we discuss here.
In order for our digestion system to function well, we need to reduce the liquid content in our stomach. The food we eat will broken down easier and faster. We will have less problem with the digestion and the system digestive system will function perfectly. There will be less hydrochloric acid produced. Less work for your stomach which in turn your organ will last longer and healthier.

What About Habits?
I have a smoker friend name Alan age 43. Very much overweight.
He had a heart attack 4 yrs back and was 'lucky' to get medical attention on time. The medical team done a balloon job on 2 of his arteries. His medical cost was covered by his medical policy and was compensated with the sum covered.
After that he quit smoking for 3 months but got back to his old habits of smoking again. "Old habits die hard". True enough weeks and months went by. Alan went back to his old habits.
He wanted to purchase a medical policy during the 'incubation period' but his Insurance Agent advise him to stop smoking, reduce weight and exercise frequently instead. The agent told him that there is no way his company would accept his policy application due to the fact of his medical history.
The Agent told Alan, "Your kids needs your love, not your money".
He did not bother to the Agent's advise and proceed to live on the old habits.
Last week I had a call from a friend. "Alan is now in Hospital for observation"
"Why?", I asked
"Chest Pain again", murmured my friend.
His old 'attack' returned the second time, but this time with a vengeance. Alan told me that this time the pain was more severe than the last. I told him that he has no choice but to seriously consider quiting the old habits. He ain't gonna be so lucky to survive the next or next attack if it ever occur again.
The morale I get from this real story is that if he is not treasuring his life where he should be then I think he should seriously consider the Agent's advise. In this scenario, Alan is in the Pilot seat to his health condition and he got to make a concrete Will to see himself passing the the age of 60's, 70's or even 80's.
Alan, if you happen to see this post, I hope you will consider your action thoroughly and to think of your 2 wonderful kids and your wife back home waiting for you every single day.
May God Bless You.

Laughter Is The Best Medicine
Today I met a couple from Australia at a seminar in Kuala Lumpur. The husband's name is Graham and the wife's name is Susan. The are the most wonderful couple I met today which make my day.
In one part of the conversation, Graham was relating his holiday trip to Phuket, Thailand. He was quite funny in a way when he described how he swam round an island off Phuket. He emerged out like being scalped by a shark around his body without realizing it when he 'surf' through the corals. Susan added that she thought Graham was doing a stunt at the Hollywood!
"I thought I needed 911 for assistance", giggled Graham. "It landed me the good memories and the scar for life", he added.
He did make my morning Great. How about you?

Small Molecule: DCA offers hope to Cancer Sufferers
A recent breakthrough in nanotechnology molecule technology has promising results for cancer sufferers. According to a report by University of Alberta, the molecule acts as a regression agent towards cancer cells.
The best part of this DCA is that it does not have any side effects on non cancerous and normal tissues. This contradicts the conventional kind of treatment where chemo therapies and radio therapies are killing all the good and bad cells in our body. More....

You Will Never Know What The Symptoms Like Until........
My friend sent this to me and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks.
Please read on.........During a BBQ, Ling Ling stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Ling Ling went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Ling Ling's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm, Ling Ling passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ling Ling would still be around today.
Some stroke victims don't die.
They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this... A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally.
He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
..........................RECOGNIZING A STROKE.
Thank God for the sense to remember the "3" steps, STR ..... Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S * Ask the individual to SMILE.
T * Ask the person to TALK to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) ( i.e. ... It is sunny out today)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS . NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke..
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call for emergency immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
A cardiologist says if everyone who read this and sends it to 10 people, you can bet that at least one life will be saved!

"With our thoughts, we make our world" -Gautama Buddha
"We are what we behold" -William Blake
"Energy follows thought" -Annie Besant
"We are more than 99.99% similar in genetic but it is the Thoughts and Words that differentiate us between noble, successes and kindness" -Anonymous
Human evolved for the past tens of thousands of years. As along we progress, we notice the significant changes in thoughts of the next generation.
Looking at how we progress since the last 100 years, we have to acknowledge the vast improvement on how we think. There is no denial the physical wealth created during this era has got a lot to do with the clever uses of words and thoughts.
With the improvement of printing and communications, we were able to propel ourselves into a high speed 'expedition'. Thoughts are transferred in a matter of split of a second. Fresh information is nothing new and astonished about. But it wasn't the the case before Internet was available.
We have what it takes for many to propel themselves into what they wish with the right tools. Provided with the right thoughts and the thoughts being transform into the right words.
Nevertheless, our human evolution will carry on as usual with these tools available to help us generate better life. The basic of life continued to be dominated by the words we use to express and the way we think individually will bring ourselves to a higher level.

My Review On Colloidal Mineral
There was this skepticism on the use of Colloidal Minerals as our supplement. Although there were no extensive research on the effectiveness but on my personal experience, it does help to boost up my energy level to a certain degree.
During my younger years, my exposure to hard days of work did take a toll on my physique. I was completely drained off at the end of each day. My pharmacist recommended me this supplement. I tried it. I felt energize and tiredness was off my mind. It did great for my body.
I was made to understand the current status of our cultivated land has been exposed to erosion. Our top soil which used to be nutrients rich has now been over stressed and over extracted. The way our farmers replant the same crop on the same land ripped the same nutrients year in and year out. Since most of our food grains and vegetables derive their minerals from the top soil, we are then deprived from the full mineral spectrum from the food we eat.
Our body could produce vitamins but not minerals. We could produce our own vitamin D by exposing ourselves to sunlight. But we can't produce a single strand of mineral. Learn more
Another interesting issue to note on the difference between ionic and colloidal minerals here....

Can We Control The Air Emitted From Our Neighbour?
I am living in Penang, Malaysia, part of South East Asia. We had a problem for half part of the year.........when we have dry season in our neighbour.....Indonesia.
It is a grieving problem whenever our neighbours had their harvest done, they practice a conventional way of clearing their land. Burning it. The effects has been tremendously bad and the situation gets worst when the wind direction shift towards us.
Our affected countries' leaders had their views forwarded to our Indonesia neighbour on numerous occasion. read related story here....
We are at mercy cause we can't do much. The land they burnt belongs to them.
But it sound strange to me when I hear the news today about the controversy Walt Disney had with the neighbours and the Hong Kong Government 'sidelines' those affected.
I think various view should be sought before any long term effects on health from the air pollution created by the fireworks. continue here....

This Is What I Mean Charity- Without Defining Race, Colour, Religion and Reward
I have known this friend for more than a year. Penny is in her forties and have a lovely family. She is committed to her family and children needs. Yet she could find the extra energy and time to fulfill her social obligation.
She is a Reiki Level III practitioner and a Christian. She offered her Reiki service to cancer patients in Mount Miriam Hospital in Penang. For free of course. And it doesn't end here.
She is the pioneer to set up a Reiki Healing Centre in one of the Buddhist Temple: The Mahindarama Temple. Her beliefs in Christianity did not stop her from performing charity when she is needed.
This short but real story shows me the true Charitable person whom I admire in and around me. I would like to wish her long life and health for her continuous deeds.....

My Thoughts On Charity...
- Great man leaves a legacy- by doing something beneficial to human mankind. We remember then because they have contributed to the man survival, bringing human species to a next level.
- There is a similarity for Great Man- Bill Gates and Warren Buffet who declare to donate most of their fortune to charity. They are willing to part their wealth to help.
- The 'Organ Pledgers'- those who are alive who pledge to donate their useful organ in the event when they pass over unexpectedly. They are the heroes.
- The NGOs' who fight for human rights, environment, animals,.... They champion their goals without expecting much.
- The parents who give unconditionally to their children. This is the basic of human and most of the living creature.
For me, I feel blessed when I am able to give while I am able. Let's give this a thought..... There's greatness in everyone of us. Let's bring it out and expand it to all...

How Can Someone Be So Mean And Unthoughtful?
I am living in an apartment. Someone had an idea to bring forward a recycling bin at one of the corners at our apartment lobby.
The bin belongs to a Buddhist Foundation Tzu Chi. The Foundation involved in many kinds of charity for the needy. They include dialysis centre, natural disaster help centre, running of schools, endless.........
It was a very Nobel indeed to have it done cause otherwise our recyclable waste would have gone unseparated.
We have about 100 household in our apartment block. Almost all of us contributed some recyclable waste to the bin. But out of the many, some could have mistaken it as a rubbish bin and contributed rubbish instead. In the end, some residents complaint about the stench. They wanted to abandon the project. Can't they think of how to resolve the human problem instead of scrapping the bin?
I am saddened by the way my neighbours handle the situation. In my thoughts.......
1) Why can't the resident pay a single thoughts to the needy people who is waiting for help at the end of the line.
2) Don't they have the feeling for the person who is waiting for help at the hospital bed, the one who are affected by the natural disaster, the one who needs scholarship to further studies?
3) What is our work to get the action to separate rubbish and recyclable item? Negligible!
4) I feel blessed when we are able to give. Especially to charity. It shows we are of capable, healthy, have enough and able.
5) Don't we feel happier to give than to receive?
6) How do we educate our children? To be a giver, receiver or the by stander? And endless......
How can we be so unthoughtful in this society when we think about giving back to those who are in need?
Is that difficult to do? Being thoughtful?

Mobile Phone Risks 'Need Further Study'.
Professor Challis who is a radiation expert is calling for a full scale study on the effects of mobile phone. According to him, the effects can be traceable by conducting a survey on a 200,000 populations.
Analog mobile phones models were first introduced in the early eighties. Since then many NGOs' and Government Health Department has shown great interest in the effects. But those study conducted was way too early to detect any significant results.
The Professor pressed for the comprehensive study by relating the effects of the Hiroshima Atomic Bomb and the asbestos issue (which was known after many years). Study is still pending approval grant from the British Government. continue here....

Know The Difference, Benefits and How Much Needed
We may have heard of the normal Omega 3 which has been much talked about. It has been associated with a healthy heart, blood pressure, good eye sight, ........ And Omega 6 as the normal cooking oil from palm based or soy based. Omega 9 is from olives and olive oil. Continue here for the difference....
A proper balance intake of the 3 types of Omega Oil is important to our health. Neither is to be neglected for a healthy lifestyle. Since each group contribute different functions to our body system, we need all of them in moderation and proportion.
Read more on Omega 3 for it uses, benefits, daily requirement, proportions,........ here
For Omega 6, continue here....
And Omega 9 here....
There is no doubt about the current situation where we consume more of the Omega 6 than the rest of the Omega 3 and 9. With this trend going, our health will be affected.
And as for Ladies who are taking Evening Primrose Oil, Beware! You might be overdosed. The normal cooking oil is more than enough of Omega 6!
From the Nutritionist point of view, we are lack of Omega 3 and Omega 9 in general. Therefore, we need to consume more of these 2 essential oil to balance up our consumption.
