Super duper busy ….but I must keep my promise to upload today’s information.. Uploading a post involved so many things! Gosh I can’t believe taking pictures and editing took me an hour! Hope you enjoy reading today’s article…..
(Its a one man show…hope you don’t mind to make an effort and find out where to buy all these.)
Two main types in the market. Cheaper one and Expensive one.
Medical halls at the HDB estates usually give the cheaper ones…. You must verify, confirm and double confirm is Lao Shan ok.
(**Yi Liang is the Chinese way of measurement is like almost 30gram)
I bought this batch from Fu Hua. Well, if you know of any good and reliable medical hall, do share with us.
A) Cheap One: Yi Liang $3 to $5 to $8 (big range….I find it funny too)
It doesn’t mean that cheap ones are no good. Cheap ones are more for army boys and for very heaty case. (Take note. Be aware and careful when you buy from unknown source…you may be buying papaya roots)
B) Good Old one: Yi Liang $30
Its known as 老山洋参须：Is old roots which means is mini cooling, remove the fire in body and also put Qi back to our body. Our age should drink this type. Let children below 18 years old drink the cheaper type.
Bryan’s Personal Antiage Maintenance:
I drink 5 gram 老山洋参须 once a week to improve Qi, remove extra body heatiness or if I feel my throat feeling kinda funny. I boil it with 500ml water. Boil for 20mins using small fire. Sometimes, I will boil more and store in fridge to drink the following day. Just warm it up the next day and drink. Not more than 2 cups in a day. If I am having a hectic week, I will usually boil 10gram and divide into portions for 2 days.
Bryan’s Research Properties:
Nourish 5 organs, nourish the brain cells, produce fluid, remove heatiness but yet not too cooling, helps in insomnia and reduce “Pek Chekness”, reduce high blood, for people who worry this and that as though going mad soon, over exhausted from work and skin break out. If you need to work extra hard that week, just for that week, you can boil 10 gram a day to drink…and can reboil a few times.
For mouth Ulcer (don’t want it to grow bigger)
5 to 10 gram Yang Shen Xu + 5 gram Shu Di Huang: Boil with 600ml water for 20mins on small fire. Super power ok. Ulcer become smaller and doesn’t grow big.
Mouth ulcer can be of the most irritating outbreak one can get. You can get mouth ulcer due to lack of sleep, stress, overwork or even constant worries. The pain may last an average of 5 days.
During stress period, you can take B-complex with Vitamin C (Enervon) but not on long term ok. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. Reduce coffee. Drink American Ginseng tea.
If you have mouth ulcer, you can try this recipe.
Herbal Tea method to heal mouth ulcer:
1. 2 slices of Liquorice, 1 tablespoon Chrysanthemum into a cup of boiling water. Seep for 15mins. Drink when cool. 1 cup a day. As you drink this tea, let the tea stay in your mouth for few seconds before you swallow.
2. 1 drop Tea Tree oil into a cup of water and gargle your mouth. Twice a day. (DO NOT SWALLOW)
3. Chew 2 fresh basil leaves. Let the juice run over ulcer and drink a cup of water, swallow everything. It helps to kill the pain and its very cooling.
Fresh Basil can be found in Cold Storage or Market Place. Fresh basil leaf is very nice to chew on, its like eating fragrant pear. Try it. You don’t need to have mouth ulcer to chew basil leaves. I enjoyed chewing the leaves and drink with water whenever I can, as it helps to detox 😛
One of the key ingredients in my 5 elements oil is Basil. That is why some of you can feel it helps to prevent sinus after inhaling 1 drop of the oil from tissue. Details of 5 element oil as atAromatherapy for Luck
Basil is more than just a culinary herb for herbalists. They used it to improve appetite and gently combat fatigue. Like other herbs in the mint family, it is carminative and disinfectant. The freshly picked leaves make a stimulating and refreshing tea. Basil has also been used as an aphrodisiac, and for melancholy and depression.
