Home remedies to treat pimples

There are multitudes of home remedies you can try that may help your acne. Whether they actually work for you or not is a different story since everybody’s skin reacts differently. Some of the more popular remedies include using toothpaste on exposed pimples and covering one’s entire face with oatmeal and allowing it to dry before washing the face. The reason why both of these remedies may help treat acne is because the properties of both oatmeal and toothpaste will help dry out your face. Acne is often caused by too much oil lying on the skin so therefore they help cleanse the face of excess oil. One word of warning is not to use these remedies often as they will cause excess drying in your skin. Be careful using any kind of home remedy on your skin.

10 reasons why you must drink carrot juice everyday

Why Carrots?
Carrot is one of the food that contain healings ability that provides us the highest quality in nutrients, especially from its juice. It is already well known in having an excellent source of vitamin A, and vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6.

It is also rich with minerals like potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and some trace minerals.

So why carrot?

1.Carrots are excellent for the eyes.

2.Carrots contains large quantities of vitamin A, in the form of beta carotene.

3.lots of nutrient are binded with carrot fibres, so we cant absorb much of the nutrient when eating the carrot raw or whole. So making carrot juice is better. after juiced, you can absorb more of the nutrient.

*studies show you get only 1% of the available beta carotene when eating it raw. But, a glass of carrot juice allows your system absorbs almost 100% or the beta carotene!

5.It doesn't taste bad and is not expensive

6.Chineses always include them in the soup, because of their benefits and able to tune the taste.

7.Carrot juice has anti-carcinogen properties which helps to prevent cancer. besides, It is also believed to have cancer-curing properties.

8.What is beta carotene? Beta carotene is an anti-oxidant, it helps to prevents cell degeneration or in other meaning it slows down the ageing process. Like most berries, they contain many anti-oxidant which are critically important to us.

9.Carrots are always good for the skin.

10.Carrot juice is like a tonic. It improves our overall health and improves our immunity system. In fact, studies shows two glasses of carrot juice a day can increase our immunity by around 70 percent.

Carrot juice is overally rich in so many types of minerals and beneficial nutrients, It totally can be serve as juice of elixir! So why not get yourself this cheap little food everyday? For more spicy ideas, you can try to add some spinach or beetroot together with your carrot juice. It tastes okay for me, you can also try to squeeze some lime into it, add seasoning if you want, a tasty glass packed with nutrients is ready! Just try playing with your idea, the limit could be just only your imagination.

Mosquito Control Technique

This is interesting.

a story got from a malaysian. the mosquito control technique
but instead of using Lemon Fresh Joy, I used Harimau Kuat Lemon
flavoured dish wash liquid (yellow bottle and about RM2.80) and..... it
actually works. Thanks to my niece. It's cheap and non poisonous like
Ridsect of Fumakilla and the others. Finally, found this simple home tip:-
You have a lot of mosquitoes in your bedroom?

Try this. Mosquito Treatment: So you don't like those pesky mosquitoes. Here's a tip that
was given at a recent gardening forum. Put some water in a white
dinner plate and add a couple drops of Lemon Fr R Set the dish on your porch,
patio, picnic table, park bench, or other outdoor area. Not sure what attracts them, the lemon smell, the white plate colour, or what. BUT ... mosquitoes flock to it, and drop dead shortly after sucking the Lemon Fresh Joy/water mixture, and usually within about 10 feet
of the plate.

TRY IT--- it works just superb! It may seem trivial,
but it may also help to control mosquitoes around your home, (especially
in areas where the West Nile virus is reaching epidemic proportions in
mosquitoes, birds, and humans)

I personally tested this... sadly nothing happened, maybe it's not for the mosquito around my housing area?? or wrong timing? well who knows.. Anyway, you can try it out and let me know if it works..

Lipstick Contain Lead

The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer. After doing a test on lipsticks, It was found that the Y.S.L . lipstick contained the most amount of lead.

Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed to stay longer. If your lipstick stays longer, it is because of the higher content of lead

Here is the test you can do yourself:

1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
3. If the lipstick colour changes to black,

then you know the lipstick contains lead.

This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center
Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, especially breast cancer.
For people who cares, share this information with your loves one...

SoftDrink Kills

Ok, Let's Have a look at the wrapper on a Coca-Cola 1.5 liter bottle and in the ingredients label, you will find phosphoric acid in it. Minute quantities of ethylene glycol are also used (which is acknowledged in the soft drink world for making it really chill).This is popularly known as anti-freeze which prevents water from freezing at 0 deg C and instead drops it 4-5 degrees with minute quantities. This chemical is a known slow poison in the caliber of arsenic.

Guess what's the pH for soft drinks, e.g. Coke? PH 3.4! This acid ity is strong enough to dissolve teeth and bones! Our human body stops building bones at the age of about 30. Softdrinks do not have any nutrition value (in terms of vitamins & minerals). It is high in sugar content, carbonic acid, chemicals i.e. colorings etc.

Some like to take cold soft drinks after each meal. Guess what's the impact? Our body needs an optimum 37 Celsius for enzyme functioning. The food taken will not be digested. In fact it will be fermented! The fermented food produces
gases, decays and becomes toxin, gets absorbed, circulates in blood and. Hence toxin is cumulated in other parts of the body, developing into various diseases.

You gulp down carbon dioxide, when nobody in the world would advise you to drink CO2. Two months back, there was a competition at Delhi University "Who could drink the most Coke?" The winner drank 8 bottles and fainted on the spot-too much CO2 in the blood. Thereafter, the principal banned all soft drinks from the college !

Someone put a broken tooth in 10 days it DISSOLVED! Can you believe it? Teeth and bones are the only human parts that stay intact for years after death. Imagine what must be doing to your soft intestines and stomach lining!

Tell your friends to increase the awareness of the great "Assumed soft drinks". In India, people hesitate to pay Rs.7-8/- for a tender coconut but prefer to pay Rs. 10/- and drink
these dreadful products.

What Is Fat?

Fats and Oils
Fats and oils are an extremely important part of a healthy diet and are also highly beneficial in fat loss diets. For many years, so called nutritional experts have blamed dietry fat for causing obesity, high cholesterol levels and heart disease, however this statement is far from the truth. These people have been victims of misinformation from poorly conducted tests and research involving fat. Fat is only harmful when consumed in excess, just like every other macronutrient.

What is fat?
Fat is an energy source which provides 9 calories per gram and is made up of a glycerol backbone which is esterified with 3 fatty acids to form a triglyceride and 3 molecules of water. These fatty acids determine whether the fat is saturated (no double bonds), monounsaturated (one double bond) or polyunsaturated (more than 1 double bond).

Saturated Fat
Saturated fat is mainly found in animal products and are naturally a solid at room temperature. Saturated fats tend to have a negative effect on blood lipids however this is not always the case depending on the persons activity levels. This type of fat is not essential.

Saturated fats can be found in meat & dairy products

Polyunsaturated Fat
Polyunsaturated fat can be split up into 2 categories : Omega 3 polyunsaturated fat & Omega 6 polyunsaturated fat. Polyunsaturated fats are primarily found in vegetable oils and are liquid at room temperature. These fats have a positive effect on human health however excess consumption of omega 6 and lack of omega 3 have a negative effect on human health. These types of fat are essential.

The most important omega 3 fatty acid is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). This can be altered inside the body to form other fatty acids, with the most important being eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

The most important omega 6 fatty acid is linoleic acid (LA) . This can be altered inside the body to form other fatty acids, with the most important being gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and arachidonic acid (AA).

Polyunsaturated Omega 6 can be found in vegetable oil, corn oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil, and sesame oil
Polyunsaturated Omega 3 can be found in fish oil, flaxseed oil, canola oil, walnut oil, and green leafy vegetables

Monounsaturated Fat
Monounsaturated fat is present in almost all foods which contain fat and are liquid at room temperature. Monounsaturated fat can have a positive effect on health however this is a non essential fat.

Monounsaturated fat can be found in olive oil & some nuts

Trans Fat
Trans fatty acids are a man made fat produced by adding hydrogen to vegetable oil to make it semi-solid and increase the shelf life. Margarine is probably the example most people are familiar with although trans fatty acids are found in almost all processed foods. Of all the fats, trans fatty acids have the worst effect on blood lipids, immune system and overall health. These fats should be avoided at all costs.

Trans fat can be found in anything “hydrogenated” mainly margarine

Fat balance and benefits
When we eat fat, our body shuttles lipids into cell membranes where they bind to phosphates. These are better known as phospholipids. Phospholipids make up the barrier between the inside and outside of the cells. These phospholipids are important because they’re used to make hormone-like molecules called eicosanoids.

Eicosanoids are involved in many bodily functions. If we’re consuming a lot of omega 6 fatty acids, we produce phospholipids with high omega 6 content. The eicosanoids are then made from the omega 6s. The same rule applies for eating omega 3s.

The eicosanoids made from omega 3’s and omega 6’s have very different functions. One of the main differences is that omega 6 eicosanoids are very pro-inflammatory, whereas omega 3 eicosanoids are very weakly inflammatory. A dietary shift towards more omega 3s has been shown to help in a variety of diseases from asthma to cardiovascular disease, but it also has the potential to be of benefit to athletes. Since they have anti-inflammatory properties, they can reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) and speed up recovery of broken muscle tissue from hard workouts.

High levels of omega 6’s have also been linked to greater insulin resistance. High levels of blood insulin inhibit HSL (Hormone sensitive lipase) which is an enzyme responsible for mobilising fatty acids from cells stored in adipose tissue. This will hinder your ability to lose fat. Fat cells (Adipocytes) become more insulin resistant with higher levels of omega 3’s which can help reduce fat storage.

Monounsaturated fats work in a similar way to polyunsaturated fats in that they are shuttled into cell membranes and converted to phospholipids. Monounsaturated fats are beneficial in that they prevent the oxidative degradation of lipids. More simplistic this means it prevents free radicals stealing electrons from cell membranes which results in cell damage.

Saturated fats are an important part of a bodybuilders diet who is looking to gain mass. Saturated fat has a positive effect on sex hormone production. Increased testosterone means bigger and stronger muscles and decreased recovery times.

Another important function of fat is that it decreases the absorption rate of nutrients in the small intestine. When fat is ingested, CCK (cholecystokinin) is released, which is a hormone that influences gastric motility. This hormone stimulates the contraction of the pyloric sphincter which is a ring of muscles that control the rate of passage of materials through the stomach to the small intestine and therefore slowing gastric emptying. We can take advantage of this effect by combining fat with proteins to slow the absorption in long periods of fasting (sleep).

Veges made my day

How it combats cancer : Research has revealed that a chemical component called indole-3-carbinol can combat breast cancer by converting a cancer-promoting estrogen into a more protective riety. The phytochemical sulforaphane raises the levels of certain cancer-fighting enzymes that defend the body from cigarette smoke, fumes, pesticides & other known carcinogens.

Diet tips: Broccoli leaves actually contain more beta-carotene (i.e. pre-Vitamin A) than the florets - use leaves in purees, soups, stir-fries. To preserve broccoli's valuable nutrients, steam or microwave, being careful not to overcook. Avoid garnishing broccoli with fatty cheeses and creams instead, squeeze on some lemon juice or sprinkle with toasted bread crumbs.

How it combats cancer : Its plentiful store of vitamin C works as an antioxidant and may also reduce absorption of cancer-causing nitrosamines from the soil or processed foods. Papaya contains folacin (also known as folic acid), which has been shown to minimize cervical ysplasia and certain cancers.

Diet tips: Choose papayas that are at least half yellow in the store - fully green ones were probably picked too soon and won't ripen properly. You can serve papaya in fruit salad, add it to a garlic-and-spinach pasta mixture, or just eat it on its own, letting the juice dribble down your arm.

How it combats cancer : Garlic's immune-enhancing allium compounds block carcinogens from entering cells and slow tumor development. Diallyl sulfide, a component of garlic oil, has also been shown to render carcinogens in the liver inactive. Studies have linked garlic - as well as onions, leeks, and chives - to lower risk of stomach and colon cancer.

Diet tips: Add raw garlic to salads, use it fresh in marinades and sauces;
rub freshly cut garlic around the insides of salad bowls and over chicken
and fish fillets. Avoid dried or powdered garlic, which is less
concentrated - and less effective

How it combats cancer : Research has shown that indoles, nitrogen compounds found in kale and other leafy greens, may help stop the conversion of certain lesions to cancerous cells in estrogen-sensitive tissues. In addition, isothiocyanates, phytochemicals found in kale, are thought to suppress tumor growth and block cancer-causing substances from reaching their targets.

Diet tips: A cruciferous vegetable, kale requires quick cooking - blanching or steaming - to preserve its nutrients. When you're done, save the nutrient-rich cooking liquid for soups or sauces. You can also use whole large leaves to wrap fillings or to layer in lasagna.

How it combats cancer : This nutrient-dense food contains many anticancer properties. It's loaded with beta-carotene, which may protect DNA in the cell nucleus from cancer-causing chemicals outside the nuclear membrane.

Diet tips: Go for freshness when picking potatoes - canned arieties contain less beta-carotene and vitamins C and B. Naturally sweet and creamy, mashed sweet potatoes can be enhanced with a little apple juice. Or whip the cooked tubers with orange zest or orange juice and season with cinnamon,nutmeg, and ginger.

How it combats cancer : Grapefruits, like oranges and other citrus fruits,contain monoterpenes, believed to help prevent cancer by sweeping carcinogens out of the body. Some studies show that grapefruit can inhibit the proliferation of breast-cancer cells in vitro. It also contains vitamin C, beta-carotene, and folic acid.

Diet tips: Grapefruit can be sweetened with brown sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup or honey; vanilla extract, fresh mint, and almonds also accent the fruit's flavor. Grapefruit juice will give you the antioxidants and phytochemicals that fight cancer, but it's missing the fiber that fresh,whole grapefruit offers.

How it combats cancer : Avocados are rich in glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that attacks free radicals in the body by blocking intestinal absorption of certain fats. Ounce for ounce, avocados also supply 60 percent more potassium than bananas and are a strong source of beta-carotene.

Diet tips: Store avocados at room temperature until they soften. If you don't eat the fruit immediately after cutting, sprinkle on some lemon or lime juice to keep it from darkening. Add chunks or slices to salads and sandwiches or spread mashed avocado on bread.

How they combat cancer : Seaweed and other sea vegetables contain beta-carotene, protein, vitamin B12, fiber, and chlorophyll, as well as chlorophylones - important fatty acids that may help in the fight against breast cancer. Also, many sea vegetables have high concentrations of the minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and iodine.

Diet tips: Sea vegetables come fresh, dried, or powdered. Both the Japanese & the Irish regularly use them as flavorings for broths & soups,stir-fried over rice, or as a wrap for fish and other seafood. Varieties such as dulce, wakame, kombu, and hijiki even appear in pancakes,salads,puddings, and sandwiches.

How it combats cancer : Soy contains several types of phytoestrogens -weak, nonsteroidal estrogens that could help prevent both breast and prostate cancer by blocking and suppressing cancerous changes. Genistein,one type of phytoestrogen, also lowers breast-cancer risk by inhibiting the growth of epithelial cells & new blood vessels that tumors require to flourish.

Diet tips: Tofu is made by coagulating the protein in soybeans - much the way cheese is produced. While bland on its own, tofu absorbs other flavors when cooked, making it perfect for stir-fries, dips, spreads,shakes, even cheesecake. It's also a good high-protein substitute for meat, whole milk & mayonnaise.

Killing CanCer


1. Every person has cancer cells in the body.These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy.
Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a. Sugar, is a cancer-feeder.

By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt. ( THE WEST MADE US 2 CHANGE FROM SEA 2 WHITE IODISED SALT )

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus . By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment.

A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful,especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.

About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed
and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for
building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.

Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water- best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.


12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor ssence,Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins,minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells.
Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind,body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.


1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto,
Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital was on a TV program to explain this health hazard.

He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat.
He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as CorningWare, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.

You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is
in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

More Information...

The number ONE killer in Singapore is cancer (followed by Heart Disease & Stroke). Not all cancers are the same. 1/3 is curable. 1/3 is preventable. 2 factors of cancer that cannot be controlled are AGE & FAMILY HISTORY.

1. Smoking is very often the main cause of cancer. It kills us silently and drains money from us quietly. There're 4,000 harmful chemicals (though in diluted form) in one stick of cigarette. Taking one puff is 600 times worst than inhaling the exhaust fumes from vehicles.

2. Some food that cause cancer are:

2.1 Barbecued Food
2.2 Deep Fried Food
2.3 Overheating Meat
2.4 Food that is high in fat causes our bile to secrete acid that contains a chemical which is a promoter of cancer cells.
2.5 Food that contains preservatives, too much salt or nitrates (e.g. Canned food, Salted egg & veggies, sausages, etc.)
2.6 Overnight Rice (where Aflatoxin is accumulated)
2.7 Food that is low in fibre: Our body needs 25 gm of both soluble & insoluble fibre daily. We must drink at least 1.5 litres of plain water a day.

2.8 Contaminated Food (e.g. moulded bread causes our body to secrete toxins that may eventually lead to liver cancer in the long run. Never eat bread that is kept in room temperature for more than 2 days especially in a humid weather like Singapore's.

3. Types of fat and which is the best?

3.1 Highly Recommended for Health:-
i. Olive Oil - The best of all oils. It does not absorb in our body.
ii. Fish Oil - Omega 3 (contained in NI's Circulytes) haspoly-unsaturated fat. It's good for our brain cells.
iii. Peanut Oil - It contains Vitamin E. A small dosage is recommended only.
3.2 Not Recommended for Health
i Vegetable Fat - Palm oil is worst than coconut oil. It is high in cholesterol and highly unsaturated.
ii Coconut Oil - It has saturated fat.

4. Specific Food & Beverages
4.1 Egg when eaten too much can cause High Colon Cancer. Risk Ovary Cancer, Prostate Cancer.
4.2 Cabbage is highly recommended for health reason.
4.3 Tomato is best eaten raw with a bit of olive oil for better absorption. Other alternative is to take tomato sauce.
4.4 Coffee is good because it contains 2 anti-oxidants. Inhaling the coffee aroma for half each day is equivalent to eating two oranges a day. However, the residue of over-burned coffee is extremely bad for health. It can cause cancer.
4.5 Tea, as long as it is in its original tea leaves and not processed into BOH or Lipton packets, it is good for health. Tea contains 30 anti-oxidants. Recommended dosage is 4 cups a day.

Exercise and be fit
Have a balanced lifestyle. Exercise regularly.

F : Frequency: 3 to 5 times a week.
I : Intensity: Exercise till we sweat and breath deeply.
T : Types of exercises: Find one that suits our age, lifestyle, etc.

Have regular check-up
Once we reach the age of 45 & above, it is recommended that we go for regular comprehensive health examination. Early detection may save lives.
