Don't sleep too late! Health tip

It's a forward mail from friend. It will tell you why don't sleep too late. Some tips is share here.

Good rest and sound sleep is very Important... if u don't sleep well,The toxic in your body will accumulate.. Affecting your health and your mood...

The main causes of liver damage are:
1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming overly done foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our body to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to 'schedule.'

Because: Evening at 9 - 11pm : is the time for eliminating unnecessary/ toxic chemicals (de-toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time dura tion should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on her health.

Evening at 11pm - 1am : The de-toxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 1 - 3am : de-toxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 3 - 5am : de-toxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the de-toxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process. Morning 5 - 7am : de-toxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

Morning 7 - 9am : Absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfas t should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 -10am rather than no meal at all. Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood.

Therefore, have a good sleep and don't sleep late.

Eat Less Rice. Why?

Below information was from a forward mail. It will tell you why eat less rice?

The human body was never meant to consume rice! You see, our genes have hardly changed in more than 30,000 years. However, our food choices and lifestyle have changed dramatically. The caveman would hardly recognise our food or way of life.

Caveman food was never cooked as fire was not yet tamed. Thus, he ate only those foods that you can eat without treatment with or by fire.. He ate fruits, vegetables, fish (sushi anyone?), eggs, nuts and meat. Yes, even meat! You can even eat meat raw if you were starving in the forest. You have the necessary enzymes to digest meat.

However, rice, like wheat and corn, cannot be eaten raw. It must be cooked. Even if you were starving in the desert, you cannot eat rice in the raw form. This is because we do not have the system of enzymes to break rice down. You were never meant to eat rice. To make matters worse, you not only eat rice, but also make it the bulk of your food.

In some parts of Asia , rice forms up to 85% of the plate. Even if you take rice, keep it to a minimum. Remember, it is only for your tongue - not your body. Actually, rice and other grains like wheat and corn are actually worse than sugar. There are many reasons:

Rice becomes sugar - lots of it! This is a fact that no nutritionist can deny: rice is chemically no different from sugar. One bowl of cooked rice is the caloric equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar. This does not matter whether it is white, brown or herbal rice. Brown rice is richer in fibre, some B vitamins and minerals but it is still the caloric equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar. To get the same 10 teaspoons of sugar, you need to consume lots of kangkong-10 bowls of it.

Rice is digested to become sugar. Rice cannot be digested before it is thoroughly cooked. However, when thoroughly cooked, it becomes sugar and spikes circulating blood sugar within half an hour-almost as quickly as it would if you took a sugar candy. Rice is very low in the 'rainbow of anti-oxidants. '

This complete anti-oxidant rainbow is necessary for the effective and safe utilisation of sugar. Fruits come with a sugar called fructose. However, they are not empty calories as the fruit is packed with a whole host of other nutrients that help its proper assimilation and digestion.

Rice has no fibre. The fibre of the kangkong fills you up long before your blood sugar spikes. This is because the fibre bulks and fills up your stomach. Since white rice has no fibre, you end up eating lots of 'calorie dense' food before you get filled up. Brown rice has more fibre but still the same amount of sugar.

Rice is tasteless-sugar is sweet. There is only so much that you can eat at one sitting. How many teaspoons of sugar can you eat before you feel like throwing up? Could you imagine eating 10 teaspoons of sugar in one seating?

Rice is always the main part of the meal.

While sugar may fill your dessert or sweeten your coffee, it will never be the main part of any meal. You could eat maybe two to three teaspoons of sugar at one meal. However, you could easily eat the equal value of two to three bowls (20-30 teaspoons) of sugar in one meal. I am always amused when I see someone eat sometimes five bowls of rice (equals 50 teaspoons of sugar) and then asks for tea tarik kurang manis!

There is no real 'built in' mechanism for us to prevent overeating of rice: How much kangkong can you eat? How much fried chicken can you eat? How much steamed fish can you eat? Think about that! In one seating, you cannot take lots of chicken, fish or cucumber, but you can take lots of rice. Eating rice causes you to eat more salt. As rice is tasteless, you tend to consume more salt-another villain when it comes to high blood pressure. You tend to take more curry that has salt to help flavor rice. We also tend to consume more ketchup and soy sauce which are also rich in salt.

Eating rice causes you to drink less water. The more rice you eat, the less water you will drink as there is no mechanism to prevent the overeating of rice. Rice, wheat and corn come hidden in our daily food. As rice is tasteless, it tends to end up in other foods that substitute rice like rice flour, noodles and bread. We tend to eat the hidden forms which still get digested into sugar.

Rice, even when cooked, is difficult to digest. Can't eat raw rice? Try eating rice half cooked. Contrary to popular belief, rice is very difficult to digest. It is 'heavy stuff'. If you have problems with digestion, try skipping rice for a few days. You will be amazed at how the problem will just go away.

Rice prevents the absorption of several vitamins and minerals. Rice when taken in bulk will reduce the absorption of vital nutrients like zinc, iron and the B vitamins

How to stop cough. This is must try...

It was a forward mail from friend which share 2 ways to stop coughing.

Cough Remedy from a Friend

“Received two recommendations to stop coughing over the past few months and would like to share with you my experiences.I have been coughing since Christmas and tried prescription 1 below.Applied the Vicks Vapor Rub at about 12 midnight, after coming home from a wedding dinner. Was pleased that it had immediate effect with the coughing stopped evidently. However, my sleep was disrupted by coughing at around 2 am when the effect wore off. Tried a second application and this time it lasted till about 6.30 am when another bolt of severe coughing returned.

As the vapor rub remedy provided only temporary relief, decided to try another remedy, prescription 2: “Grilled Oranges,” this morning after breakfast. This worked better to drive the coughing away almost completely. Below is how to grill and eat the orange.”

Prescription 2: Grilled Oranges
Follow these steps:
1. First poke a hole on the Orange for the purpose of allowing heat to enter the flesh and enabling the flesh to be easily extracted after roasting.
2. Put it inside an ordinary small oven. Roast for 10 minutes, then the fruity flavour will come out. After the orange has been baked, it is really fragrant, with a roomful of pleasant smelling quite different from the original orange flavour. It is a relatively moisturizing, aromatic taste. It's really beyond imagination. Go and bake an orange, it will let you enjoy the flavour.

3. Grill until the orange is like that on the left side, with its skin a little bit charred! Take out the whole orange. It's warm and can warm your hands and face. The flesh inside is just fine in temperature.
4. The grilled orange can be easily peeled. Staining it with some salt would make it sweeter and better for healing coughing! Compared to medicine, I believe that every child will like it better. Try grill an orange forthwith, any kind of orange can be baked like this!

Treatment:To stop night time coughing in a child (or an adult, as! we found out personally), put Vicks Vapor Rub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime and then cover with socks.

Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about five minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief... This works 100 percent of the time, and is more effective in children than even verystrong prescription coughs medicines. In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly. I heard the head of the Canada Research Council describe these findings on the part oftheir scientists when they were investigating the effectiveness and usage of prescription cough medicines in children, as compared to alter! native therapies like acupressure. I just happened to tune in to a.m. Radio and picked up this guy talking about why cough medicines in kids often do more harm than good due to the chemical makeup of these strong drugs, so I listened.. It w! as a surprising finding and found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bedtime, and in addition to have a soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to sleep soundly.

My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago, and it worked 100 percent! She said it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her. The coughing stopped ina few minutes! and believe me this was a deep (incredibly annoying!) every few seconds, uncontrollable cough and she slept cough-free for hours every night she used it.

If you have children or grandchildren, pass it on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be absolutely amazed.

Chocolate Fondue @ Haagen-Dazs Quensbay Mall Penang

I have been thinking for quite sometime where to go for my hubby's birthday this year. My hubby is a ice-cream lover. Thus,We decided went to Haagen-Dazs to celebrate his birthday. At first, we plan go to Autocity Haagen-Dazs in the morning but the shop only started bussiness at 12pm.

Chocolate Fondue

We changed our mind visited Haagen-Dazs at Quensbay Mall after lunch time. We ordered the famous Foudue recommended by friends and many bloggers. Fondue is created from hot molten chocolate sauce, combined with an assortment of mini scoops, seasonal fruit and warm patisserie. Every fondue comes with 4 mini scoops of Belgian Chocolate, 4 mini scoops of strawberry, 4 mini scoops of cookies & cream, 4 mini scoops of vanilla. There is 3 topping that you can choose which is chocolate sprinkle, almond flakes and almond nibs. It cost RM63.90 for the whole set. My daughter also enjoy the banana, strawberry and chocolate chip cookie served in the Fondue. We got 1 free scoop that we can choose the flavor from menu with the Jusco member card if you spend over RM30 or RM35. My hubby selected Rum Raisin. It taste good with the plump raisins soaked in rum to create a flavorful and heady treat.
