Is Fatty Liver Disease a Concern to you? How to Prevent Fatty Liver???

I attended Live With Dr Chen's talk (Chapter 2) at Resorts World Sentosa on 21st May. 

It was a very educational and I get to further enhance my Nutritional Immunology Knowledge to be able to serve better too =)

One of my great learnings was on Fatty Liver Disease!!

***Even a 5 year old suffered from Fatty Liver Disease due to Nutrition Misconception. 

People of higher risk to get Fatty Liver Disease are : 

Alcohol drinker
Obese due to unhealthy diet and lifestyle
People who use synthetic vitamins mineral pills (chemically made food), such as Vitamin A, E and iron pills

(as the above add burden and damaging the liver) 

Do you know also : 

• Drinking Kombucha,
Taking herbal medication  (such as 何首乌, 田七, etc etc)
• Using Pain killers (especially paracetamol)

are hurting and damaging your liver and lead to Fatty Liver Disease too? 

Fatty Liver Disease has  NO medicine to cure!!

Most of the time, it stay hidden in the body until symptoms such as

  • Jaundice
  • body turns yellow
  • Swollen Liver
  • Painful feeling on liver 

surface only the person discovered about their liver is deteriorating!!!!!!!

As liver has no sensory gland, so when this happens, the liver might already be hardened follows by liver cancer. 

(Many of the Normal Liver Testings may not indicate the accurate condition of your liver condition) 

***Once the liver reach Cirrhosis (Liver Hardening), it's irreversible. 

How do you take care of your liver when it's still healthy?

Practise Nutritional Immunology Lifestyle by: 

  • Avoiding unhealthy diet such as oily, fried food, synthetic vitamin pills (Do you remove the fish skin/ chicken skin before eating?) 
  • Be medication-free & avoid misuse of medication 
  • Exercising 
  • Nourish your liver thru Superfoods to cleanse your liver safely, and promote new young liver cell regeneration 

For me, I am taking E.Excel Orchestra daily as convenience to protect my liver as 

The 2 famous Japanese Longevity Herbs Kumazasa and Ashitaba in Orchestra are very excellent in cleansing our liver besides other health beneficial properties.

Your Health Is Your Best Asset.
Safeguard it well before it becomes Your Liabilty.

What are the Pitfalls of Vegetarian Food?

Recently, I'm more prone into taking "Vegetarian" Diet such as:
  • Salads
  • Yong Tao Fu with all vegetables (no fish balls and meats)
  • Vegetable U-Mian
  • Mixed rice from vegetarian stalls
  • Normal Mixed rice (with vegetables and no animal meats)

Having a few weeks adopting this 'vegetarian' food diet, i realised that it indeed takes a commitment for a person to stop taking animal meats.

It's known that vegetarian diet have many of the benefits to health!

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, 
appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. 

According to a large-scale study conducted over a 6 year period and published in JAMA Internal Medicine, a journal of American Medical Association, 

the study shows that Vegetarians lives longer than meat eaters.
vegetarians had a 12% lower death rate than their meat-eating counterparts. 
Vegetarians also had a 19% lower chance of dying from heart disease than meat eater, and lower risk of dying from diabetes and kidney failure. 

Nevertheless, I realised that vegetarian diets sometimes may NOT be as healthy as we think if the below are our frequent selections:

1. Vegetarian diet comes with processed foods, example mocked meats, which may contain chemical additives and preservatives that are bad for health.

2. Certain vegetarian foods are often deep-fried.
Deep fried usually gives higher calories which may lead to obesity.
For example, in 100 g of fried tofu, it contains 271 calories.
100 g of fried dough fritter is having 558 calories.

Besides, the excess oil and fat are bad for cardiovascular health as the oils are high in Omega 6 which can cause body inflammation and leads to various chronic diseases.

3. Some vegetarian food is prepared using high-heat stir frying or deep frying. This cooking method may destroy the phytochemicals and antioxidants of the plant foods and significantly reduce its nutritional values.

4. Furthermore, vegetarians may be only taking one kind of mushroom (shitake) and rely on it to get polysaccharides nutrients.

It's actually more beneficial to consume different types of mushrooms to get different unique types of polysaccharides for different protection functions.

What NUTRITION is especially important for people with Vegetarian Diet?

Stay tuned for my upcoming post. Thank you.

Why MUMPRENEURS are on the rise??

Mother's Day is around the corner! 

What makes mother's day so special?

All mothers are great! 

As children, we need to be grateful and appreciative to respective mothers for their sacrifices and efforts in grooming us up. 

Especially when we become a mother of own children, we can relate more about how being a mother feels. 

Read the below from The Straits Times

'Mumpreneurs' on the rise in bid for work-life balance

A small but growing number of mothers are leaving the traditional workforce and setting up their own businesses. Called "mumpreneurs", many want more flexibility to look after their children.


Having to struggle for work-life balance with the arrival of the little ones, it's not surprising that MUMPRENEURS are on the rise! 

For me, many years ago, I personally have seen a few of my friends/ ex-colleagues decided to leave their workforce in order to spend more time for their children. 

It's indeed very challenging for working mothers to cope with family and work balance especially in a demanding working environment.

Let me name a few scenarios:

Children falling sick

When the children are ill, how do you feel when you are taking care of them? 
"Tiring, exhaused..."

Working mothers usually suffer from insufficient rest and sleep, therefore, they are physically and mentally drained especially the next day they have to rush back to work. 

A few emergency trips to hospital easily drained the working mothers' energy and stamina too.

Worries about their children are unavoidable especially seeing them having to suffer from certain diseases, and staking dose by dose of medicine.

Accompany for Excursion or school activities 

Sometimes, when school requires parents to accompany their children for excursion/ parent teacher meeting, have you struggled or in dilemma to request a leave from your boss?

Late/ Delayed Fetching Children from school

Due to some adhoc issues or OverTime at work, working mothers may end up leaving office late, therefore picking up their children from school late too. 

Dilemma during applying leave/ emergency leave from employer

During any emergency issue at home, when working mothers wanted desperately to settle the family issues, they feel dilemma in applying leave from employer. 

Would the frequent leave application affect the impression from employer and therefore affect the potential promotion and salary increment?

When the economy is not doing well, would this affect the stability of their job to continue serving the company or will they experience retrenchment? 

What kind of values to teach and groom the children?

Due to busy and hectic schedule in the demanding working environment,  working mothers may have a tendency to mislook on grooming their children as a wholesome person.

One of the most important Questions usually is missed by working mothers: 

"What kind of person I want my children to grow up as?"

"Responsible? Trust-worthy? Resilient? Respectful?"

"Is my parenting style aligned to the values that I want to groom my children to become?"

I personally feel that especially the grooming part is the most important part. 

No doubt , as much as many parents could, they are sending their children to the best schools, best enrichment classes etc in hope the children can receive best education. 

However, many times, the intangible values are very important as these values incalcated since small will shape the children's character for future.

Also, they see us as a role model.

What are your thoughts about the above?

Being a mumpreneur ever since my first daughter was born (in fact before my pregnancy) and until now, I am blessed that i have benefitted a lot from the business. Having time freedom on hand, I can plan the things to take care of both career and family. I gained a larger perspective towards parenting too, through my personal growth and leadership in the business. 

Hence, I'm very passionate in working together with mumpreneurs or mothers who wanted to become a mumpreneur.
