Can we have a forum to discuss and share health and medical issues?
eg migraine and tried-and-tested treatments, supplements for different
needs etc. I always believe a problem shared is a problem halved.
Hope to hear from fellow parents,
thanks

That's a good idea. Can be for all ages. After all, parents don't just take care of children; they have their parents and themselves to keep healthy too.

Brain Food and Immunity

Postby csc » Wed Jan 14, 2009 11:19 am

Sharing my mother-in-law's recipe for brain food and immunity against diseases.

* must eat porridge cooked with "ma yau yu" - expensive fish (dunno the English name) from the time the kids can take solid food till Pr 1 , she said it's good for their brains... well maybe true...both my kids are blessed with good memory though they have never gone thru all those right brain training programs

* also porridge with ground ikan bilis - good for bone developement, i think

* must drink cod liver oil daily ....still drinking now occasionally

* must drink her herbal chicken/porkribs soup full of tonics (boiled for hours) at least twice a week -- to keep diseases at bay

Can't help but to agree with her cos my children hardly have to absent themselves from school due to flu, cough or other ailments :D Thank God for that!

Here is my share.

My kid is 4.5 years old, used to get sick quite often, like having flu and cough. Then I started to give him 1 capsule of cracked spores lingzhi pills whenever I feel that he is going to fall sick. And since then, he have seldom fallen sick. I started this like 9 months ago.

I myself take the pill also, quite effective, haven't spend money on seeing doctor so far :D

Wonder if we are able to start a list instead? Anyone with remedies to contribute to always add to the last posted consolidated listing. This makes referencing so much easier. Just a suggestion :idea:

Only thing will be that the description need to be concise. Any clarifications/queries may still be posted without quoting the full listing.

An example of the suggested heading could be :

Ailment / Remedy / Remarks (if any)
1. Diarrhea / canned pineapples / consumed without the syrup
2.

Hi mom2boys,

I got my from Hock Hua Chinese medicine shop, Yu Ren Shen medical hall also have it. But Hock Hua is one of the cheaper one. it is capsule that looks like something like this, except it is a brown capsule.

Not hard to swallow, need to swallow with water. It is suppose to improve immune system, best effect if taken before sick.

Taking chocolate and waffle and really get sick easily. My kid used to get throat infection and the only way last time is to take antibiotics, which in my opinion is real bad choice.

Zack, that's a good idea.

Ailment / Remedy / Remarks (if any)
1. Diarrhea / canned pineapples / consumed without the syrup
2. Flu or throat infection / cracked lingzhi spores / best taken when symptom first appear.
