Simple Living #2: Be here now

 Past. Present. Future.

Many a time we let the unhappiness, grievance and, anger of the past consume us and affecting our current emotion and behaviours.  The present choices with accumulation to react to the past, can result in future unhealthy you.

When you are caught in a moment of negative emotion or behaviour, focus on mindfulness breathing.  With consistent practise, you might notice that the ability to let go of the negativity comes easier.  You are no longer focusing on your PAST emotion and behaviour but staying in the PRESENT in breathing in and out, to create a new realm of FUTURE not of your past.

Just image with a snap of your fingers or a clap, the action is a past.  You are in the future.

Do not let the past destroy your future.

Do you experience excruciating menstruation pain and discomfort?

Do you experience excruciating menstruation pain and discomfort?



A study has shown that about 15% of the women experience excruciating pain which affects their work and activities for 1-2 days.

Personally, I do have a few friends who experience severe pain and either have to excuse from work or feeling discomfort for several days or months and even years. Imagine your car brake has worn off and you continue driving for days and months, what will happen next ?

What cause menstruation pain?
Before menstruation, our body will release large amount of inflammatory prostaglandins which constrict the blood vessels in the uterus and make the muscle layer contract, causing painful cramps. When the prostaglandins enter the bloodstream, it might cause headache, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.


How do women usually cope with menstruation pain?
Usually women take pain killer to reduce the pain.

Our liver is our detox organ. Singapore being a food haven, we are exposed to high processed, high sugar, oily food which over work our liver to detox. With medication on a regular basis, our liver will be overburdened and toxic will start accumulating in the body. It becomes a vicious cycle.


What are the food that fight inflammation and tame menstruation pain?
Wholesome food such as vegetables and fruits high in antioxidants and phytochemicals, eg berries, cactus, acerola cherry and rose.

High fibre and protein grains and legume such as psyllium husk, oats, soy, quinoa, kiwi seed and chia seeds.
Research has shown that a plant base diet decrease body inflammation in the body.  This is due to the high antioxidants and phytochemicals found in plant food that help the body to function more effectively.

Animal products do not contain antioxidants, phytochemicals and fibre and contain fat content and estrogen which trigger the release of large amount of inflammatory prostaglandins which causes the menstruation pain and discomfort.

My clients often tell me, "do you mean i have to become a vegetarian to be healthy???" 
It is not the amount of junk food we eat that cause us to be unhealthy. It is, we do not consume larger amount of disease fighting food which has high antioxidants, phytochemicals and polysaccharides.

High meat diet also increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases as well as hormonal disease and cancers.

With a change to a vegan and plant base diet, study has shown that women suffer lesser menstruation pain, water retention and mood swing.

Start taking baby steps.  Once you experience free from pain, improve in complexion, stamina, quality of sleep and productivity, most likely you will not turn back.


Do not confuse Phytoestrogen with Estrogen
Plant estrogen is called, Phytoestrogen.  It exist in wholesome plant, fruits and vegetables.
Estrogen exist in meat.

We need estrogen in our body to grow healthy cells.  Animal base estrogen promote the growth of health cells as well as the development of cancer cells.

In contrast, phytoestrogen not only aid in promoting the growth of healthy cells and also inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells.  

High meat diet also increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases as well as hormonal disease and cancers.

With a change to a morevegan and plant base diet, study has shown that women suffer lesser menstruation pain, water retention and mood swings.

Start taking baby steps.  Once you experience free from pain, improve in complexion, stamina, quality 
of sleep and productivity, highly you will not turn back.
