Do you encourage experiential learning in your children?

Who prepared today's dinner?

He asked me if he can cook for us.  I agreed.
He asked what i would like to have. I said vegetarian.
He asked me for a budget. Brought him to NTUC ytrday. Today he jogged from home to parkway NTUC and took a bus home with more stuff.

With some help in the cooking from my helper, he completed the dinner for us. From planning to budgeting and from cooking and plating.

Thank you for the healthy dinner and although it got messy, I'm sure you learnt heaps today.

Thank you Zachary for the dinner.

When was the last time you let your kids try something new and adventurous?

How we survived Covid-19, part 4

10 July 2022 to 19 July 2022

7 in the family. 
3 survivors.

Generally, our family took about 6-7 days to recover from Covid-19.  
Everyone has different symptoms. 

My Mother In Law, Lilian, 76 years old, and my 2nd son, 11 years old were the 1st 2 to diagnose with ART at home.
Next day was my eldest girl, Alyssa, 13 years old.
Following by my hubby, Edwin, 42 years old, 2 days later.

Survivors, my helper, myself and Elijah.

How did the 3 of us survived that week?
My helper, she was quite busy. preparing 3 meals, hi tea and nutritional immunology beverages for the 4 of them back to back and handwashed their clothes.  I reminded her to wash their utensils and clothings separately from us.  We are very thankful that she was willing to sacrifice her sunday off to help us at home and had to postpone her birthday celebration.  On her birthday, 12 July, I gave her an angbao and also another angbao after everything was over, including her off day salary and extra for her to celebrate with her friends.

I also offered my helper our Nutritional Immunology food during this period to keep her safe.  However, she only took some every days as she did not want me to spend so much.  What a sensible helper!

Myself and Elijah, as i mentioned in Part 3, he had an operation so he had been home.  I had to manage daily grocery, keeping him entertained, safe and his wellbeing and managing my businesses.  It had been a busy period but i really enjoyed the moment and being presence.  In the midst, i still make passionfruit drink, pomegranate drink, cheng tng, waffles etc for the family.

During this period of time, i am very thankful to be in this career.  It offers me flexibility as i was able to care for my family needs without taking leaves yet i can still manage my business and family together without affecting my income!

I did joking ask my hubby, what happen if i was the one who caught covid-19 and he was the one out?
Will he be able to take leave to handle our meals, grocery, taking care of Elijah and not to mention his work?

I believe he would not be able to manage partly because his status as an employee and usually employees are hard to get immediate and long leave and they could be expected to still be working.

From this pandemic and having my family caught Covid-19, it really proven that i have make the right choice to be in this career.

How we survived Covid-19, part 3

10 July 2022 to 19 July 2022

7 in the family. 
3 survivors.

Generally, our family took about 6-7 days to recover from Covid-19.  
Everyone has different symptoms. 

My Mother In Law, Lilian, 76 years old, and my 2nd son, 11 years old were the 1st 2 to diagnose with ART at home.
Next day was my eldest girl, Alyssa, 13 years old.
Following by my hubby, Edwin, 42 years old, 2 days later.

How 3 of us did not contact Covid-19?
My helper, myself and Elijah, 3.5 years old did not contact Covid-19.

Following is my analysis how we protected ourselves from the Covid virus.

My helper, she was having sore throat since 4 July 2022, monday, and she had been wearing mask since then as she worried she might spread to Elijah who was home for the week.  She did ART on 6 July 2022, it was Covid negative.  She shared a room with my MIL.  As she had been wearing mask, i believe she minimised the airborne exposure to Covid-19.

Myself, most of the day time that incubation week i was not at home as i had home visit with client, meeting with business partners and at office.  On the 9th and 10th July 2022, i was in Alyssa's room having our quiet time for hours.  I thank God for the protection and the constant nourishment of Healthy Breakfast i have been taking daily for years.  Have you heard of this saying, 养兵千日,用兵一时, meaning train your armies for years even though there is no war but when there is war, your armies are always ready for the battle.

Elijah was the most concerned as he is not Covid-19 vaccinated and he just had an operation!
He had a day operation on 28 June 2022 and developed hematoma and high fever on 30 June 2022.  Therefore we decided to keep him home for at least 2 weeks and my MIL was the main care giver this while especially during the incubation period.  She had been playing and napping with him.  Elijah was the highest chance to contact Covid i must say.

Thank God for his protection.  
As i look back, it is revealed to me that everything happen for a reason.  Because Elijah developed hematoma and fever and was given antibiotic and fever medicine, my hubby and i decided to up his Nutritional immunology food intake and forgo the antibiotic and medicine.  As an Excellence Lifestyle Coach, i know what is best for him to speed up his recovery.  

I thank God for the series of drama for Elijah as i reflected during the 1 week Covid period.
I thank God for showing me the way to the science of Nutritional Immunology more than 9 years ago and this starts my journey as an Excellence Lifestyle Coach and so my kids have been free from medication for these 9 years and i could pay it forward to people around me to be healthier, wealthier and happier.

Holding 2 of his favourite Nutritional Immunology food

I also learned from Alyssa that her classmate commented that she recovered fast and does not look like she had Covid as that friend is still coughing after 2 weeks.

Also to share a client of mine who is running a transport company.  Many of her drivers have contacted Covid-19 and she have been close contact with them throughout these 2 over years however many were surprise that she did not get infected with Covid from her work space, social gatherings and family members who were infected, and she is safe.  She credits to the constant nourishment of her Healthy Breakfast and take extra precaution.

Important: There is a misconception that once you contacted Covid-19, you wont get it within 6 month.  My hubby colleague got it 3x within a few month.  Please rem that there are plenty of mutation along with evolution.  You could have gotten from Omicron variant previously and can get from Delta this round.  So people, do not let your guard down and do your preventive measures such as boosting your immune system, wear your mask and wash your hands!

Conclusion, nourish your immune system consistently and diligently so that it can protect, cleanse and repair for you before, during and after the battle.  Our health should not be only taken care when war is here or after the war.  

We cannot control the (next) pandemic, the evolution of health threats and the people around us but we can control ourself is by taking control of our health!

How we survived Covid-19, part 2

10 July 2022 to 19 July 2022

7 in the family. 
3 survivors.

Generally, our family took about 6-7 days to recover from Covid-19.  
Everyone has different symptoms. 

My Mother In Law, Lilian, 76 years old, and my 2nd son, 11 years old were the 1st 2 to diagnose with ART at home.
Next day was my eldest girl, Alyssa, 13 years old.
Following by my hubby, Edwin, 42 years old, 2 days later.

How it was detected?
10th July 2022, sunday night after celebrating my MIL's birthday, Zachary felt that he was running a temperature.  He took temperature himself and found he ran a fever of nearly 40 degree.  We got panicked as he told us he had sore throat the day before.  Then we got him do ART and found he was Covid positive!  So we got everyone at home to do ART and found out that my MIL had it too and her T line was very red but she had no symptoms except a bit of block nose since wed / thur!  Alyssa also informed us that her throat might be a little sore too.  To play safe, i told her to isolate in her room too although she was tested Covid negative on 10th July.

Near midnight, Zachary started to have breathing difficult and running a very high fever made him feel even worse.  Hubby decided to bring him to East Shore Hospital.  I did not follow as i worry that in the event that i contact Covid, no one will be able to take care of Elijah.  I reminded Hubby to put on 2 masks and wind down the car windows. Zachary vomitted once before leaving home.

At the hospital, Zachary had ECG test and etc and was given brufen.  As and Excellence Lifestyle Coach, i have been educating my family on the side effects and how medication works, Zachary asked his Dad if he should take.  He left the decision to him and Zachary took a doze, 1st time after more than 9 years of medication free.

After he reached home, he vomitted another time.

11th July, Alyssa was tested Covid positive but very faint line.

13 July, Hubby's throat started to sore too.  Probably he had been a hero to shift my MIL stuff to bunk in to Zachary's room and accompanied him to hospital with a tentage of i believe of similar cases.  

Following is the journal i requested them to record for my sharing with everyone.

How we survived Covid-19, Part 1

10 July 2022 to 19 July 2022
7 in the family. 
3 survivors.

Their 1st day

Their last day


Generally, our family took about 6-7 days to recover from Covid-19.  
Everyone has different symptoms.  I will elaborate more in my next part of the topic.

My Mother In Law, Lilian, 76 years old, and my 2nd son, 11 years old were the 1st 2 to diagnose with ART at home.
Next day was my eldest girl, Alyssa, 13 years old.
Following by my hubby, Edwin, 42 years old, 2 days later.

Logistic
We have planned for this day thus we have bought extra bunk bed to put in Alyssa's room when we did restructuring last year to give her her own room.  
Zachary has a double deck bunk bed in his room and Alyssa has a triple deck bunk bed in her room.
From 10th July, we had isolated Lilian and Zachary in Zachary's room.
We had also requested Alyssa to minimise movement at home by staying in her room from 10th.
Edwin contacted Covid-19 3 days later could be due to him been hero to settle the room logistic and sending Zachary to hospital for a check (read next part) while i minimise contact with these patients as i have a 3.5 years old who needs me.  After he was diagnosed with Covid-19, he bunked in to Alyssa's room.
They have a toilet outside their rooms.  So the survivors did not use any of them.  Doors were kept closed to minimise spreading of virus.

My helper rest in her room. 
Myself and Elijah, 3.5 years old in the master bedroom.

Food and nourishment
I saw that many families manage Covid-19 symptoms with medication such as paracetamol, lozenge, flu and cough medicine, Lian Hua medicine etc.

In our family, healthier food were served 4x a day including a tea break and 2 servings of high antioxidants fruits and several bottles of concentrated Nutritional Immunology Food for the patients.  As an Excellence Lifestyle Coach, i know who is the best doctor, ie our immune system, the best way to speed up recovery is by nourishing our body to self healing.

Fever, cough and flu are our body ways of fighting hard to maintain homeostasis.  Our body is put into an inflammation state when a sudden potent virus attack the body. Indiscriminately consume medication to allow body to fight itself can make it difficult for the immune system to fight the infection and on the other hand making the invaders stronger.

These are some of the food we prepared for the patients.

Tips
1. Early preparation on rooms and logistic in the event of Covid-19 
2. Both patients and survivors, we wore mask everyday even when we slept, except Elijah, i took off his mask when he slept.
3. Use disposal food containers and utensil.  Just dump after each use or after the period.
4. Consume high antioxidant, phytochemicals and polysaccharides wholesome plant, fruits and vegetables.  Avoid inflammatory food that slows down recovery.
5. Sleep more
6. Stay hydrated with beverage that give nutrients to boost your immunity
7. Do some light exercise.
8.  Keep yourself entertained and enjoy the moment

How to achieve healthy and luscious hair?

 Know of anyone experiencing

  • Dry and damage hair
  • Hair loss
  • Oily scalp
  • bald patches
  • Grey hair

Do you know that our our scalp is skin too!
We often overlook our scalp health, but we need to caring for it now.
Our scalp is some of the thickest skin on our body, and has more sebaceous glands (oil-producing glands) than most parts of our body.

The scalp can become inflamed due to many factors, such as infections, pollution, allergens, medical conditions, stress, insufficient sleep, sweat, UV radiation, and scalp microbiome imbalance. Scalp inflammation can damage hair folliclesand eventually cause hair loss.

Our scalp ages FAST.
Our scalp ages six times faster than the skin on our face, and 12 times faster than the skin on our body. As our scalp ages, our hair becomes thinner.

Our scalp is affected by our lifestyle.
Premature aging of the scalp can be caused by sun damage, inflammation, free radical damage, stress, medications, diet, and diseases. It can also be caused by chemicals, such as those used in hair coloring or bleaching.

Our scalp has a microbiome.
Our scalp is covered with thick, long hair, which creates a warm, dark, and humid environment where microbes thrive. The scalp microbiome consists of a diverse mix of bacteria that work
together to contribute to our scalp health.

If this delicate microbiome balance is thrown off, our scalp may experience irritation, redness, itch, inflammation, and in severe cases, hair loss.

 

Our Scalp and Oxygen

Oxygen is vital for active repair of damaged cells in thebody including dermal papilla in the hair follicle, which plays the main role in the regulation of hair growth.


PlusO2 Scalp Balance
Designed for Hair That ls
  • colored, bleached, or permed.
  • damaged, dry or brittle
  • subject to heat, such as from curling irons.

How to live with Covid-19?

It has been more than 2 years that we are living with Covid-19.

There was a spike in the cases of Omicron after February 2022 Chinese New Year.

Let me share with you some of the common questions, finding i observed and what i read and learned these few months as i have been receiving Covid-19 cases almost daily till date.

Let me try and keep it as short.

1. What is the difference between viruses and bacteria?
Source: https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/virus-vs-bacteria-difference


2. Why Covid-19 virus mutate so fast?
As the virus enters an individual, the virus replicate. During the "copying" process, copying errors can occur and thus explain the mutation.  With the number of cases worldwide at the same time, that explains the rampant mutation. 
According to report, since Dec 2019 to May 2021, Covid-19 has mutated 6,600 times.

3. Does negative result means you have no covid-19 virus when you have the Covid-19 symptoms?
Be it Covid-19 virus or any virus, the virus takes time to multiple in our body.  At the point of testing, the virus could be too minute to give a positive result and that does not mean there is no existence of the virus.  When the body gradually scumble to the fight of the virus, symptoms will develop.  Therefore some people tested positive after a few days. while the body was fighting.

4. Will you get Covid-19 again?
Possible.
When body is not recovered fully and the lingering virus is not entirely cleared by maintaining a healthy and balance body, one could be re infected.  Another possibility is attack with another strain of Covid-19 virus. 

5. Why some people do not get infected with Covid-19?
There are studies that shown that it could also attribute to the gene.  Some other factors that could influence the result of infection are:
- age
- health condition such as pre-existing cardiovascular deterioration
- one's innate immune system
- lifestyle
- diet
- hygiene
- quantity and duration of virus exposure

6. Who will get long Covid?
Till date, there is not definite conclusion on what causes Long Covid. 
Severity of Covid-19 does not differ in the result of getting Long Covid
Check out our next post on Long Covid.

How to live with Covid-19?
Nourish you innate Immune system.  It is our best doctor.  Our innate immune system is supposed to do 3 main functions of self defence, cleanse and repair.  

What can we do to keep our innate immune system healthy and balance to do the 3 functions effectively?
- Consume wholesome plant, fruits and vegetable high in antioxidants, phytochemicals and polysaccharides 
- Quality rest
- Stable emotion. Hang around with positive people.  We are the average of the 5 people we hang around with.
