Vegewash - another step to Pesticide-free!

As we are concerned on the pesticides on the fruits and vegetables, 
we can now have a solution to cleanse away the residue of pesticides

My answer to the brand choice is: 

Vegewash from E.Excel 
  • Environmental safe
  • Derived from plant sources: water soluble agents from corn, Hawaiian white ginger, cucumber, lemon extract, Gwei-Hua. 
  • Finest organic ingredients
  • No animal byproducts

It can be used as a detergent to wash my baby's bottles =) 

As we know, many of the liquid cleansers are made of chemicals! 

For example, 

The below is the ingredient list from one of the liquid cleansers for baby bottles sold in the market. 
IngredientsPurified water (Aqua), Sodium Citrate, Alcohol, Propylene Gylcol, Sucrose Laurate, Potassium Carbonate, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Fragrance

Some even contain triclosan which can cause cancer. 

What is triclosan?

I feel safe using Vegewash as even it is not completely cleansed off from the baby bottles, it's still safe. 

And I MUST SHARE that recently I even use Vegewash to wash my kitchen ware!! 

It's so effective and fast in removing the oil stain from the plates! :D

Start protecting our family health by equipping ourselves with right knowledge.

Parents looking for Natural remedy besides medicine intake for children

Many parents will ask are here any other alternatives besides than resorting to western treatment when our child fell sick?

  • Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?
  • Chinese Massage - Tui Na
  • Taking more fruits and Vegetables?
  • But why there is not much improvement to their frequent fever and cough?
  • How can I build their immune system?

As a mother of 2, I can relate totally to the anxious feeling of the parents. 

We feel heartache when seeing our children have to suffer from sickness. 

What can we do best for them so that they can grow healthily?

After years of seeking for health improvement during my teenager's days and early working life, 
I finally found a solution to it - that is through the Science of Nutritional Immunology. 

  • See: Goals of Nutritional Immunology

When i was a teenager, my mom has frequently brought me to clinic due to frequent colds and fever. 
I always suffer from stomach wind especially during travelling. 

I keep wondering why my health was so bad? What caused all these illnesses? 

After chancing upon Science of Nutritional Immunology, many of the health questions were answered.
I have found the reasons to these diseases and solution for the improvement too. 

Since practicing Nutritional Immunology Lifestyle, i have never suffered from stomach winds, colds and fever frequency had greatly reduced. 

I am no longer having to use western medicine as i realised there are side effects from medicine intake.

  • See: What are the side effects of common western medicine?

Thankfully, I practice the same to my children also. 

Seeing them growing healthily make me feel very relieved and happy. 

Right nourishment from quality superfoods are important to their immune system.

I'm happy that my elder girl (coming to 3 years old) and my younger boy (coming to 1 year old) have been medicine-free since infancy!! 

Once in a while, they will fall sick, such as mild fever. 

With Nutritional Immunology foods, they recovered fast!

Example, fever usually subsided the next day. I did not give them any western medicine, just more diligently feed them Nutritional Immunology wholesome foods and practice Nutritional Immunology Lifestyle

They did they can recover from the sickness without having to use western medicines. 

  • See: What are my natural remedies for my children?

Also some videos i took when my elder girl was still very young.

What are the side effects of Western Medicine?

I remember once I ever heard one of Dr Chen's shadings that asked, "do you ask your doctor what medicine you are going to prescribe to me and what are the side effects?" 

Or you just simply accept what doctor prescribed to you without first checking on the side effect it could bring to you?

Look at the below table to learn about the SIDE EFFECTS of some of the COMMON western medicines example: 

  • Cough medication
  • Fever medication
  • Antiobiotics
  • Steroids
  • Painkiller

Medical advancement have indeed brought mankind a false sense of security. 
Medicine are viewed as safe substances that can quickly treat illnesses. 
Unfortunately, a side-effect free treatment is a rarity. 
Once immune system is damaged, the road to recovery is a long and difficult one. 

For example:

  • Side effects of popular heartburn pills

One plant has been looked after properly with right nourishment daily and it is very healthy. 
Another plant has been neglected or receive wrong nourishment for a period of time. 

So same for our immune system. 
For an immune system to stay healthy, it requires our effort to provide right nourishment to it on daily basis.

We are What We Eat. 

Prevention is still better than cure.  

--> THE BEST WAY to stave off illnesses is through proper nutrition on a daily basis.

Start building a strong immune system from a young age!

Be a wise consumer. 
Taking good care of our health is our own responsibility.
Together, we stay healthy

HSA Issues Warning Against a Steroid-containing Capsule Product

Recently I came across with this news article which made me worried!

It's about a health food being warned by HSA for containing potent medicinal ingredients which could cause negative side effects to the consumers. 

The below is the link to the full article:

As a wise consumer, reading the ingredient label is important. 

So you will know the product is made of what kind of ingredient - whether is it wholesome natural ingredient or synthetic (chemical) ingredient. 

However, some hidden harmful chemicals may not put up on the ingredient label by the manufacturers, putting the consumer's health AT RISK

Therefore, as a wise consumer, we need to look for a product not only effective, MOST IMPORTANTLY it must BE SAFE!! 

  • To me, I will look for products which receive Safety Certificates such as "Food Safety Excellence Award" by Singapore AVA. 

  • Which safety testings are important in ensuring food product safety?


Be a wise consumer! .

3 Step-Solution for your child to improve from eczema

How does Science of Nutritional Immunology explain and help on the eczema?

What is Eczema?

See the below from different sources of information about eczema definition and cause.

1. Excellence Magazine Volume 9

  • Affecting about 10% of infants and 3% of the total population in the United States, eczema suffered have to endure the inflamed skin conditions that can include redness, blistering and oozing of the skin. The exact cause is unknown but many researches suspect genetic abnormality and a malfunctioning immune system. 

2. Source:

  • Eczema is a common skin condition marked itchy and inflamed patches of skin. It is also known as atopic dermatitis. It is more common in babies and young children. It occurs on the faces of infants, as well as inside the elbows and behind the knees of children, teenagers, and adults. 
  • It is caused by an overactive immune system. 
  • Up to 20 percent of children and one to three percent of adults develop atopic dermatitis, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
  • In rare cases, atopic dermatitis can first appear during puberty or adulthood. It affects males and females equally. 
  • The exact cause of atopic dermatitis (eczema) is unknown, but it's likely due to a combination of dry, irritable skin with a malfunction in the body's immune system. Stress and other emotional disorders can worsen atopic dermatitis, but they don't cause it.
In fact, eczema is one of the auto-immune diseases, which mean the immune cells attack own organ (in this case, it is skin).

1. What is Auto-Immune Disease?

  • There are at least 80 types of auto immune diseases. They can occur in many organs and cause various symptoms. 
  • Auto inmune diseases result from a confused immune system attaching normal body tissues. 
  • This is unlike a normal functioning immune system that only attracjs substances that are harmful to the body such as bacteria, viruses, toxins and cancer cells. 

2. How does consuming Meat, Dairy products increase the risk of auto-immune disease?

- Eating meat and dairy products raises the risk of auto immune diseases. 

Example those who consumed the most dairy products had almost twice the risk of deceloping inflammatory polyarthritis as those with the lowest consumption. 

  • The intestinal lining can become inflamed due to the intake of substances such as alcohol and drugs. 
  • The intestinal inflammation will lead to LEAKY GUT SYNDROME which cause most of the auto-immune diseases. 

  • Inflammation causes the release of chemicals that dissolves the membranes of intestines. 
  • Food is digested in the stomach and intestines and broken down into small molecules that pass through intestinal walls to enter the blood streams.
  • The intestinal wall acts as a filter and protective barrier
  • If this filter is 'damaged' (a common occurrence during inflammation), there will be increased permeability (commonly referred as a LEAKY GUT).
  • This allows incomplete digested big molecules to pass through the intestinal walls into the blood streams. 
  • When these incomplete big molecules accumulate in certain organs, they stimulate the immune system to react by initiating the inflammation responses. 
  • While attacking these foreign substances, the immune system may mistakenly attack the neighbouring organs, thereby leading to the auto immune diseases. 

3. What are other risk factors?

Drugs, gender, smoking 

4. How to reduce the risk of auto-immune diseases? 

Fortunately recent evidence indicates that decreasing intestinal permeability by eliminating certain substances from the diet may be helpful. 

With the changes in eating habit, and lifestyle change, the auto-immune diseases will improve and be prevented. 

5. Long term use of medication will not be an ideal solution.

In fact, after understanding about the root cause of eczema which is due to malfunctioning of immune system, we can go for natural remedies to improve the condition through 

6. What are the natural and safer solution to eczema? 

3 Step-Solution to improve your eczema:

Step 1: Eliminate meat and dairy products from diet (including cows milk)
Step 2: Keep a diet low in fats and vegetable oils (including biscuits, cakes)
Step 3: Take high antioxidants and phytochemicals superfoods to balance out the immune system
Oxyginberry Beverage which is made by cactus, cactus fruits, ginseng berry, grape seeds, rose and seaweed are rich in disease-fighting nutrients. 
It's perfect nutrition for people who are suffering from eczema.

Vitamin C in Baby Foods - is it good?

While i was searching for more information on baby foods, I was reminded to share with all on the ingredients on baby foods once again.

Many baby food products may claim to be FREE of preservatives. However it can last for quite some time. 

Have you ever wondered HOW?

It's because Vitamin C has been fortified into the baby food. 

"Ascorbic acid (commonly known as Vitamin C) neutralizes oxygen when it comes into contact with it. 

Oxygen allows foods to continue to ripen, an aging process similar to the one people go through that ends in death. 
Oxygen is also vital for many microorganisms to thrive, some of which cause decay. 

Ascorbic acid slows or neutralizes these events. The substance blocks cured meat’s propensity to form carcinogens called nitrosamines, for example. In the process, the vitamin also preserves the flesh’s red color. In addition, ascorbic acid preserves flavor. "

Do you check the ingredient label of the baby foods?

What's the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C for Children?

The recommended daily intake by the U.S. Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine 
for infants 0-12 months old is the amount of vitamin C in human milk; 
for children 1-3 years old, it is 15 milligrams; 
for children 4-8 years old, it is 25 milligrams; 
for children 9-13 years old, it is 45 milligrams; 
and for adolescents 14-18 years old, it is 75 milligrams for boys and 65 milligrams for girls. 
The tolerable upper intake levels (UL) for vitamin C are 400 milligrams daily for children 1-3 years old; 
650 milligrams daily for children 4-8 years old; 
1,200 milligrams daily for children 9-13 years old; 
1,800 milligrams daily for adolescents and pregnant and lactating females 14-18 years old

Common side-effects of Vitamin C overdoes

  • Relatively large doses of vitamin C may cause indigestion, particularly when taken on an empty stomach.
  • When taken in large doses, vitamin C causes diarrhea in healthy subjects. 
  • In one trial in 1936, doses up to 6 grams of ascorbic acid were given to 29 infants, 93 children of preschool and school age, and 20 adults for more than 1400 days. 
  • With the higher doses, toxic manifestations were observed in five adults and four infants. The signs and symptoms in adults were nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, flushing of the face, headache, fatigue and disturbed sleep. 
  • The main toxic reactions in the infants were skin rashes.

There is a difference between Man-Made vitamins vs vitamins from wholesome food source

The above comes from man-made vitamins therefore side effects can be observed. 
However, when we consume oranges (vitamin C source) than our body require, we will never suffer side effects as stated above.

Let's all be a wise parent by being a wise consumer. =) 

May all children grow healthily and happily.
