Those of you with beer belly, this is a must-try.

Did You Know... 
... that you can rub your stomach away effortlessly using nothing but your hand -- for only 2 minutes a day?

Dr. Stephen ChangThis may sound hard to believe, but Dr. Stephen Chang, an M.D. and Ph.D. who's trained in both Western and Chinese medicine, states that this simple 2-minute internal exercise, which does not come from Western medicine, but rather from the wisdom of ancient Chinese sages -- has been used successfully as a self-healing mechanism for over 6,000 years.

Whatever you do, don't confuse this internal exercise with the external exercises of the Western world, such as sit-ups, crunches and other movements that only firm up the underlying stomach muscles ... but do nothing to melt the fat surrounding those muscles.

According to Dr. Chang, losing weight is a simple matter of increasing the efficiency of the digestive system. If you've ever wondered why you fail to shed pounds even when you reduce your food and/or caloric intake -- the reason is because your digestive and eliminatory systems are not functioning efficiently.

The following 2-minute exercise works like a gentle colonic irrigation that
 helps speed up a sluggish digestive system (which usually carries at least 5 pounds of fecal matter within it), and this elimination of useless sludge has the effect of burning off excess fat. The exercise effectively metabolizes the fatty tissues around the stomach and intestines, and flushes them out of your body through blood, sweat, urine, and feces.

Here's how to do the stomach-rubbing exercise:
1) Lie flat on your back on your bed or on the floor. Take your top off or pull it up so that your abdominal area is bare.

2) Rub your hands together vigorously for about 15 seconds, or until they feel hot.

Rub Stomach Away3) Place one of your hands directly on your belly button and begin to rub in 
small circles around your belly button, and gradually make the circles larger (as shown in the diagram). Use fairly firm but comfortable pressure and rub at a slow, even pace, approximately 1 circle per second.

4) Concentrate on the heat building up in, around and throughout your stomach.

5) Do about 40 to 50 circles, or for an approximate duration of 2 minutes or more.

Note: It is important to keep the abdominal area warm while doing the exercise, especially during winter months when even heated indoor air tends to be cool.
For best results, do this routine twice a day for 2 minutes -- first thing in the morning (before breakfast) and just before you go to bed. Most people see noticeable results within 1 week of consistent practice.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the stomach is the center of energy. Massaging the stomach in the manner described above therefore accomplishes more than just melting away adipose tissue (fat). It also ...

* stimulates the abdominal organs
* helps speed up slow digestion and remedies constipation
* increases blood circulation in the abdominal area
* helps heal indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and the adverse
effects of overeating

The stomach massage should not be practiced immediately after a heavy meal. Neither is it advisable for women who are pregnant, or have inflammation of the uterus, bladder, ovaries and fallopian tubes; and individuals who have the following conditions: hypertension; stones in the gall bladder, kidneys or bladder; general, femoral, inguinal and umbilical hernia; bleeding of the stomach, lungs or brain; or ulcers of the intestines and stomach.

HWAN CHOO HEOK (Hokkien) FUN SHEE YIP (Cantonese) or Sweet Potato Leaves Can cure Adult Macular Degeneration (AMD) (where the retina becomes loose and degenerate at the center, occuring especially in the elderly and can lead to blindness)

If you are those who don't have a liking for sweet potatoes you have other choices, but if you don't like sweet potato leaves you are missing something not many choices can be at par with.

It is quite rare to find an edible phyto food-on-the-table which is of high food value, edible from its tubers, stems, buds and leaves needs comparatively little care while growing, matures quickly, high food productivity per square feet space, easy to store, and have a quite palatable taste. This description fits the sweet potato. Do not underestimate the 'cheapy' sweet potato leaves (after all many farmers discard them after harvesting the tubers). Modernization and the convenience of city life have nearly pushed the sweet potato leaves (SPL) into the attic to collect dust while many medical practitioners collect monies from disease sufferers who could be better off just putting SPL into their regular diet. SPL can generate a nice smoothie or greens juice for your alkalization needs. without you having to sacrifice spending on other things because it is very affordable and yet does not compromise your health. Hey, where else can you get such a deal. It is a humble but rich food which should deserve the respect from those who understand and require the need for raw phyto greens to complement their daily health.

For therapeutic purposes, it is recommended that you take the raw green juice of SPL. The best way to ingest the goodness of SPL is to take the juice/smoothie of the raw phyto green so that you get the action of the chlorophyll and all the other goodness of the phyto green on your body. Just use any blender which can turn the leaves into pulp. 1) If you use only the SPL leaves, blending will turn them into a smoothie. You will find that blended SPL leaves have a gummy texture, somewhat like blended bananas. This smoothie is not too hard to drink. For a savory taste, just add lemon or lime before blending; you can also top it up with blackstrap molasses. 2) If you use the leaves and stalks of SPL, the smoothie is not as smooth as in (1) and not as palatable too; because your tongue can feel the fiber and your throat does not feel okay. However, if you need only the fiiltered juice, just put everything in, leaves + leaf stalks. Filter the blended pulp and drink immediately. Raw phyto-greens are especially potent in its therapeutic effect if you used them within 1-2 days after purchase from the market. Later than 1-2 days (even with cool storage in the fridge), the potency can drastically be reduced. If you have a garden, organically grown SPL is the best. However, don’t bother with ‘organic’ SPL if you are on a therapy diet, because the popular notion that inorganically grown SPL is a cause for diseases is not as as urgent as your immediate need: To alkalize your body against pathogenic and toxigenic fungi.

A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night to meet, and have dinner with her parents.
Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time.
The boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms.. He tells the pharmacist it's his first time and the pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex.
At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he'd like to buy, a 3-pack, 10-pack, or family pack.
The boy insists on the family pack because he thinks he will be rather busy, it being his first time and all.
That night, the boy shows up at the girl's parent house and meets his girl friend at the door.
"Oh, I'm so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!
The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl's parents are seated.
The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head. A minute passes, and the boy is still deep in prayer, with his head down.
10 minutes pass, and still no movement from the boy.
Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girl friend leans over and whispers to the boy friend, 'I had no idea you were this religious.'
The boy turns, and whispers back,
'I had no idea your father was a pharmacist!'

Have a good laugh.....

(Ah Peh is just an old man in chinese)

About a century or two ago, the Pope decided that all the Chinese had to leave Italy. Naturally there was a big uproar from the Chinese community.

So the Pope made a deal. He would have a religious debate with a member of the Chinese community. If the Chinese win, they could stay. If the Pope wins, the Chinese would leave.

The Chinese realized that they had no other choice. So they picked middle-aged man named Ah Peh to represent them.

Ah Peh asked for one condition to be added to the debate. Since Ah Pope can’t understand Chinese and Ah Peh’s Italian is hopeless and to make it more interesting,  the debate would be conducted in sign language.  

The Pope agreed. The day of the great debate came. Ah Peh and the Pope sat opposite each other for a full minute.

Then the Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers. Ah Peh looked back at him and raised one finger. The Pope waved his fingers in a circle around his head. Ah Peh pointed to the ground at where he sat. The Pope pulled out a loaf and a glass of wine. Ah Peh pull out an apple.

The Pope stood up and said, "I give up. This man is too good. The Chinese can stay."

An hour later, the cardinals were all around The Pope asking him what happened?. The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the holy trinity. He responded by holding up one finger to remind me that there was still one God common to both our religions."

"Then I waved my finger around me to show him that God was all around us.  He responded by pointing to the ground and showing that God was also right here with us."

"I pulled out the wine and loaf to show that God absolves all sin. He showed me an apple to remind us of the original sin. He had an answer for everything. 
What could I do?"

Meanwhile, the Chinese community had crowded around Ah Peh. "What happened?" they asked.

"Well," said Ah Peh, "First he indicated to me that all Chinese had 3 days to get out of here.  I replied to him f*@k off and not one of us was leaving." 

"Then he pointed that this whole city would be cleared of Chinese. I showed him that we are staying right here." 

"Yes, and then???" asked the crowd. "I don't know", said Ah Peh, "He took out his lunch, and I took out mine!!!"

Papaya contains natural fiber, carotene, vitamin C and essential minerals. Papayas also contain enzymes like arginine and carpain.

Arginine is essential for male fertility and carpain is considered to be good for the heart.

Papaya for the Skin :
A papaya face pack can also be made using the fruit. Papaya is a product from nature which is used in many skin lightening creams. Many of the lotions or creams which are used to make the face lighter or fairer contain papaya as an ingredient. Papaya also helps in getting rid of acne because when papaya is applied as a face pack it helps to open the pores. Papaya makes the skin glow.

Health Benefits of Papaya 1

Papaya was the only studied food found to halt breast cancer.

Scientists studied 14 plant foods commonly consumed in Mexico to determine their ability to halt breast cancer cell growth. These included avocado, black sapote, fuava, mango, prickly pear cactus (nopal), pineapple, grapes, tomato, and papaya. They also evaluated beta-carotene, total plant phenolics, and gallic acid contents and antioxidant capacity. They found that only papaya had a significant effect on stopping breast cancer cell growth.
(International Journal of Food Science and Nutrition, May)
Papaya is a store-house of cancer fighting lycopene

The intense orangey-pink color of papaya means
it is chock full of cancer fighting carotenoids.
Not only beta carotene, but lycopene is found in abundance.
The construction of lycopene makes it highly reactive toward oxygen and free radicals.

Scientists at the University of Illinois think this anti-oxidant activity contributes to its effectiveness as a cancer fighting agent.
Epidemiological studies have indicated an inverse relationship between lycopene intake and prostate cancer risk.
They showed that oral lycopene is highly bioavailable, accumulates in prostate tissue, and is localized in the nucleus of prostate epithelial cells.

In addition to antioxidant activity, other experiments
have indicated that lycopene induces cancer cell death,
anti-metastatic activity, and the up-regulation of protective enzymes.
Phase I and II studies have established the safety of lycopene supplementation. (Cancer Letter, October 8, 2008)

Prostate cancer was the subject of a study in Australia that
looked at 130 prostate cancer patients and 274 hospitalized controls.
The scientists found that men who consumed the most lycopene-rich fruits and vegetables such as papaya were 82% less likely to have prostate cancer.
In this study, green tea also exerted a powerful anti-cancer effect.
When lycopene-rich foods were consumed with green tea, the combination was even more effective, an outcome the researchers credited to their synergy.
( Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2007)

Isothiocyanates found in papaya restore the cell cycle to eliminate cancer.

Organo-sulfur compounds called isothiocyanates are found in papaya.
In animal experiments, isothiocyanates protected against cancers of the breast, lung, colon pancreas, and prostate, as well as leukemia, and they have the potential to prevent cancer in humans.
Isothiocyanates have shown themselves capable of inhibiting both the formation and development of cancer cells through multiple pathways and mechanisms.
(International Journal of Oncology), October, 2008)

Researchers in Japan clarified the mechanisms of action in a type of isothiocyanate found in papaya known as BITC, that underlies the relationship between cell cycle regulation and appropriate cell death.
When cancerous cells die on schedule, they are no longer a problem.
The researchers established that BITC exerted cancer cell killing effects that were greater in the proliferating cells than in the quiescent cells.
Cancer cells that are proliferating are much more dangerous than cancer cells that are in a state of dormancy. (Forum of Nutrition, 2009) Enzymes from papaya digest proteins including those that protect tumors.

The fruit and other parts of the papaya tree, also known
as the paw paw tree, contain papain and chymopapain,
powerful proteolytic enzymes that facilitate chemical reactions in the body.
They promote digestion by helping to break down proteins from food into amino acids that can be recombined to produce protein useable by humans.
Proteolytic enzymes protect the body from inflammation and help heal burns.
They do a good job of digesting unwanted scar tissue both on the skin and under its surface.

Research has shown that the physical and mental health of people is highly dependent on their ability to produce proteins they can use effectively. However, as people age,
they produce less of the enzymes needed to effectively digest proteins from food and free needed amino acids. They are left with excessive amounts of undigested protein
which can lead to overgrowth of unwanted bacteria in the intestinal tract, and a lack of available amino acids.

Eating papaya after a meal promotes digestion, and helps prevent bloating, gas production, and indigestion.
It is quite helpful after antibiotic use to replenish friendly intestinal bacteria that were the casualties in the war against the unwanted bacteria.
When the intestinal tract is well populated with friendly bacteria, the immune system is strengthened, and can better protect against flu and cancer.

Being a proteolytic enzyme, papain is able to destroy intestinal parasites, which are composed mostly of protein.
To rid the body of intestinal parasites, half a cup of papaya juice can be alternated each hour for twelve consecutive
hours with the same amount of cucumber or green bean juice.

Papaya contains fibrin, another useful compound not readily found in the plant kingdom.
Fibrin reduces the risk of blood clots and improves the quality of blood cells, optimizing the ability of blood to flow through the circulatory system.

Fibrin is also important in preventing strokes.
Proteolytic enzymes containing fibrin are a good idea for long plane rides to minimize the potential of blood clots in the legs.
People who sit at a desk all day might want to use proteolytic enzymes too.
Proteolytic enzymes are able to digest and destroy
the defense shields of viruses, tumors, allergens, yeasts, and various forms of fungus.
Once the shield is destroyed, tumors and invading organisms
are extremely vulnerable and easily taken care of by the immune system.

Undigested proteins can penetrate the gut and wind up in the bloodstream where they are treated by the immune system as invaders.
If too many undigested proteins are floating around,
the immune system becomes overburdened and
unable to attend to the other tasks it was meant to do.
Proteolytic enzymes can digest these rogue proteins,
freeing up the immune system .

Let's ensure a slice of papaya every day in our diet. Papaya juice will be great too!

Little Johnny

Little Johnny
The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship. 
Little Sally led off: "I sold girl scout cookies and I made RM30," she said proudly, "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success." "Very good," said Cikgu 
Little Mary was next: "I sold magazines," she said, "I made RM45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events. " "Very good, Mary" said the teacher 
Eventually, it was Little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath ... Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "RM 2,467," he said. "RM 2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?" 
"Toothbrushes," said Little Johnny. 
"Toothbrushes!" echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?" 
"I found the busiest corner in P J," said Little Johnny. "I set up a Lollipop stand and gave everybody who walked by a free sample." They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog crap!" Then I would say,"It is dog crap. Wanna' buy a toothbrush?"

LEMON - Just want to share this good information........

Just cut 2 - 3 thin slices of lemon in a cup/container and add drinking water will become "ALKALINE WATER", drink for the whole day, just by adding drinking water. Take it as drinking water everyday is good for everybody!

LEMON (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill CANCER CELLS. It is 10,000 times stronger then Chemotherapy.

Is even more astonishing :- this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

Don't Waste That Lemon Peel
by: Junji Takano* surya :
Lemon productions became more and more abundant around the world because of its nutritious contents. Lemons are used in many different ways in lemon
industries and factories, but not among households.

How do you eat or taste lemon in your house?
Probably, you do not know how to apply lemon the right away.
Do you just squish a few drips to your whisky, vegetable salad, bread, ice cream, roasted meat, cake, baked chicken, fruit drinks, or to your other favorable dishes? If so, what a waste!

Here, I'll tell you the real use of lemon.
I'm sure you know how nutritious a lemon is. But you may only know how to use it as a simple seasoning, as most people do, and not as a side dish. You think that only the squished juice from lemon is used, while the lemon peel
is thrown away. Yes, you think that you only need that sour, citrus taste of the lemon's juice, is that right?

However, we found out that many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted.
How can you use the whole lemon without waste? the lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your
grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.

Sprinkle it to your whisky, wine, vegetable salad, ice cream, vegetable soup, chicken soup, curry soup, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, meat
loaf, sausage, fish dishes, and ramen. It doesn't matter whether it's a Chinese dish, Italian dish, French dish, African, Indian, Japanese, Korean, or Latin American dishes, you just name it.

All of these foods will unexpectedly have wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before in your life. You don't believe me? Just try it and you will agree with me. Everything will certainly taste great!
Most likely, if you hear the word lemon, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore. Now that you've learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.

What's the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?
Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that's what you've been wasting. But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.

The lemon peel is good in making you slim if you are a fat person, or makes you healthy fat if you are skinny.

It is very good that the PYRO-ENERGEN <>is also for the taste of all people. It's also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

Place your lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal time every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That's the lemon secret!*

To get maximum juice out of lemons
Soak lemons in hot water for one hour,
and then juice them.

Be Careful when Selecting Bananas

Friends, we all love bananas and we eat a lot of them, but the bananas available in the market are forced ripe by dipping in water mixed with Carbide. The consumption of these bananas is sure to cause Cancer or some other infection in the stomach. Therefore, such type of bananas are to be avoided.

But, how does one recognize the bananas ripened with the help of Carbide?
Bananas which are ripened naturally are dark yellow and there are small black spots here and there on the bananas and the stalks are black.
While those which are forced ripe with Carbide are lemon yellow and their stalks are green and they are clear yellow without any black spots.

Now, what is Carbide and how is it harmful? Carbide is a chemical which if mixed with water, emits heat and the heat emitted by a Close tank mixed with Carbide is even more than that emitted by a LPG Cylinder, so much so it can be used for Gas Cutting (which means the calorific value is so high that it can replace LPG gas). In the same way, when the bunch of bananas are dipped in the water mixed with Carbide, the gas gets absorbed into the bananas and they get ripe. However, the banana vendors are not that literate and so they do not know the exact proportion of Carbide to be used for a dozen of bananas. As a result they end up using excess quantity of Carbide which gets absorbed into the bananas and ultimately enters our stomach. Due to this excess use of Carbide, tumours can be formed in our digestive system.

So, next time you purchase bananas, make sure you select the naturally ripened ones.
