A little more health-conscious than usual

Supplements for Health

So, I have been more health-conscious than usual, but can you blame me? As though my other chronic health problems are not bad enough, I am literally plagued with chronic eczema for months now, and I have been on Zyrtec almost every night. The medications that the doctor prescribed didn’t do much for me, once the 10-days’ course was completed, the rash is back with a vengeance!  I hardly believe it’s contact dermatitis as diagnosed since the crazy itchy rash only occurs after sunset and I am not doing anything different from before when the rash attacks.

I reckon it’s about time to pay attention to my health anyway, despite my denial, I am not getting any younger, if not now, when?

Even though the Master Cleanse program didn’t help with my Eczema problem, but it sure opens up a giant window of possibilities. In the brief 10-days program, I experienced health benefits and improvements like never before. I begin to believe that unless I do something about it, my health will suffer.

Remember, there is no coincidence, if we surrender ourselves to the possibilities of what might have in plan for us all this time, we may avoid unnecessary struggles.

See, it’s like an anchoring point. Shortly after the Master Cleanse program, mum talked about the airfryer, which I already had in mind to buy for her as Mother’s Day gift. I roped my sister in to share the cost and voila!, the airfryer arrived much sooner ahead of the Mother’s Day – yeah, she’d better not think of asking for another gift on that day. Now, we enjoy fried/cooked food with lesser oil!

That is not all. The last step of the Master Cleanse is to prepare for the vegetable soup, and ever since I tried cooking that, I am completely bewitched – I don’t normally drink soup, except for creamy soup or soup with rich broth. I cook a big pot of vegetable soup once or twice a week. Mike and mum love the soup, so do I. I would have vegetable soup for all the meals for that day. It’s stomach warming, nutritious, and very satisfying. Try to add a wide variety of vegetables to enjoy higher benefits that the vegetables provide.

One thing leads to another, a friend mentioned about Liver Detox supplement on Facebook, and I started to research online. I am hardly out of the apartment, so I would love to find an online retailer that accepts and delivers my order.

I found iHerb! Not only that it offers a huge range of health supplements, but also a wide range of organic tea and other products. Did I mention that I stopped my regular coffee since Master Cleanse? Mike bought a small jar of decaffeinated coffee – note that decaf is not completely caffeine free, it’s just lower in caffeine, which I had every morning, and not increasing the quantities throughout the day, except for one or two occasions when I wrote tutorial with the computer.

The reviews of the products that I have ordered are fabulous, the prices are comparatively lower than our health supplements retailers, and as a new customer, I enjoy some good discounts too. I chose a lower shipping cost method which took longer to deliver. I ordered on 28 March, I received the order on 12 April.

So, here’s the list of items I ordered:
1. Now Foods – Liver Detoxifier and Regenerator (180 capsules) – USD28.03
2. Pero, Instant Natural Beverage Mix, Extra Dark Roast, 100% Caffeine Free, 5.25 oz (150 g) – USD5.78
3. St. Dalfour, Organic, Earl Grey Tea, 25 Tea Bags, 1.75 oz (50 g) – USD3.99
4. St. Dalfour, Organic, Golden Mango Green Tea, 25 Tea Bags, 1.75 oz (50 g) – USD3.99
5. Doctor’s Best, Ultra Cordyceps, 10 Veggie Caps – (Free sample per order – you choose what you want)
Total bill: USD44.74
Discount: less USD12.95
Shipping: USD6.00
Total paid: USD37.79

At this point, I can only say that the prices are super attractive. I have not tried anything yet, so I can’t give any feedback on the products. I am so looking forward to having the Earl Grey tea though.

We have more Organic products in Singapore now, including health supplements made from natural ingredients, but compared to other developed countries, we only have a small handful of retailers on these products, and the range is pathetic.

I’ll try the coffee and teas tomorrow.

Have you say!
