The first thing to do on coming back was to check my 6 Papaya trees which I bought 4 weeks ago to see if they are still alive.

They cost $7.50 each without G.S.T. at the Sunday market. Yes, thanks goodness, they are still looking good.:D

The only plant I do not have in my backyard is a banana tree.

Do you plant vegetables in your garden ? I have been trying to plant lady's finger (okra) in my little backyard in Malacca.

I have a "buddy" from Malacca who now live in SJ. He has acute diabetes.. :(

Someone told me drinking lady's fingers juice can lower the blood sugar and I recommended him to try. It works quite ok for him.. :)

He is a retiree. Diabetic medicine is not cheap (even before GST) and his children kind of don't take care of him much. You know vegetable is also not cheap in SJ. I am thinking if the lady's fingers can grow well in my house's backyard, I may occasional bring this vege to him when I travel to Malacca..

No lah, no okra in my backyard as we move around a fair bit.

I did not know okra can cure diabetes.

To the best of my knowledge, none of my friends in all the places have such a disease.

Consider also FENUGREEK seeds - these seeds have been researched and reported to help control diabetes but do check on Google. CAUTION (read up the online medical research): If the patient is already on insulin, fenugreek drink may cause hypoglycaemic conditions. It is easier to drink the boiled water of these seeds (after overnight soaking). You can get the organic version from organic shops.

Thanks..

I always advise my diabetes-stricken buddy to treat this herbs as supplementary to medicine. The main control should always be the prescribed medicine from doctor..

So many experts on traditional medicine here?

What about clogged blood arteries (artheriocloresis), what is the best trad herbs ?

See the effects of Goji (枸杞 or wolfberry) on body pH balance - the level of alkalinity vs acidity in the blood and its reforming effect. The research was done by Dr. Victor Marcial-Vega from John Hopkin Hospital.

This is Wolfberry or commonly known as Goji (枸杞)

Turmeric was used since more than 2500 years ago. Lord Buddha and all the early Buddhist monks use the orange-yellow coloring obtained from the matured rhizomes of this plant to dye their robes.

Also called the "yellow ginger", it is often used as a treatment for jaundice, irregular menstruation, stomach problems, abdomen pain, chest pain, back pain, diarrhea and dysentery.

One of the proven medicinal benefits of turmeric is its anti-thrombotic properties or ability to inhibit blood clotting.

A 1999 study in “Biochemical Pharmacology,” a 2005 study in the “Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology” and an ongoing study begun in 2009 by the USDA have shown that Curcumin, a chemical in turmeric, reduces the risk of clogged arteries, strokes and heart attacks.

枸杞 (wolfberry) is good. We often add them into soap and fish porridge.. :)

Just have to be VERY CAREFUL of the source. Unscrupulous distributors add faked wolfberry which has been dyed with red color. Can't differentiate with naked eyes.

Buy from trustworthy shop (if you know them) or from reputable shops.

Greenwich, thank you for your info. In fact, I take Goji everyday as supplement for my eyes since I read a lot due to work nature. However, I am surprised some are dyed. I thought Goji is not a very expansive stuff. These unscrupulous merchants truly heartless.:mad:

Although it is not a very expansive stuff but when the quantity is huge, there is substantial $$$ to be made too by supplying faked goji or poor quality goji which have been dyed red to look attractive... !!

Believe it or not, we just talk about fake Goji. Now they discover China has fake rice too. Someone send me this video on the production of fake rice in China which was uploaded to YouTube about a week ago. :eek:

Watch out if you buy rice imported from China.:(

First of all, I am an outsider on the subject of herbs, I know nothing about the types of herbs and the effectiveness of herbs.

I know a doctor from PRC for a very long time. When I was secondary school student, my father often brought my mother to visit this Chinese doctor. She has low blood pressure and apparently traditional Chinese herbs are perceived to be more helpful than western pills. I think cost is also a reason as the consultation fee and herbs of this Chinese doctor were cheaper than western clinic.

I was a science stream student at that time and started to expose to the world of science. I looked down to this type of vague diagnosis using traditional herbs. My negative opinion of this type of herbal treatment was reinforced when I noticed my father paid expensive money to buy the wild ginseng which according to the doctor is essential to enhance my mother’s vitality and blood circulation.

Cut the story short, my mother is 74 years old now and she has no problem to wake up at 5.30am every day and join my father for a morning walk. She eats well, sleep well and can handle herself.

So, I was wrong about this Chinese doctor. I tried to know more about this doctor and from him, I understand a little bit about how a doctor was trained in PRC and what are the key elements required to be a good practicing doctor. He is a professor of a medical school in PRC and came to Malaysia during a government-to-government exchange program in the 80s. He applied to stay here and opened a clinic in my hometown. I witnessed how he cured patients with acute illness (some are my close relatives) using herbs alone. I won’t touch on this subject as not to give false hope to anyone.

What I can learn from him is – Chinese traditional treatment and herbs therapy is 博大精深 (broad and profound). To be effective, it required a very knowledgeable and experienced practitioner and most importantly, a practitioner with a good heart.

The difference between the Chinese & Western medicine practice is that the Western medicine focusses on removing the symptoms using direct methods which is so-called “头痛医头,脚痛医脚” or in English…”fix the head when headache; fix the foot when foots hurt”. This is definitely effective when it is in chronic situation.

Whereas, the Chinese medicine emphasizes on dialectical analysis of human body as a collective interrelated system, therefore, the holistic approach is slower but beneficially in long term basis particularly for complex illnesses.

The reality is that over 5000 years, Chinese people have been depending on Chinese medicine to cure illnesses and protect themselves against epidemics. Undeniably, Chinese medicine has contributed to the population growth over these years and attains its today’s status of world largest population with 1.37 Billion people or nearly 19% of world population.
