Last week, my kid and I were coughing, coughing and coughing and gagging on a lot of phlegm that I swear it felt almost as bad as the croup he got last year.
Since I can’t take ANY cough medicine now, I resorted to the good old Nim Jiom Pei Pa Koa, which a trusted paediatrician from Beijing had recommended to me when I had a nasty cough before coming home.
Guess what happened? I got better faster on just Nim Jiom Pei Pa Koa compared to my boy who was taking Rhinathiol (Promethazine)!
Because he was running a fever a few days, he had to take paracetamol (which he HATES) that he found Rhinathiol more pleasant. However, after a few days of Rhinathiol, he started to reject the “sweet orange medicine”.
When he saw me taking the Nim Jiom Pei Pa Koa, he asked for the “black medicine”. True enough, his phlegm subsided and soon, he was coughing less and less!
Now that more and more people are infected by flu or cough, I’ve been recommending this sweet and pleasant-tasting loquat syrup that claims to:
“Eliminate phlegm, relieve coughs and soothe sore throats.”
Even my Mum was impressed that she’s taking it and asked my sister to buy it for her husband and kids who are also coughing now.
We find that it’s more effective mixing it in warm water (1 tsp for me, 1/3 tsp for him) three times a day.
Try it if you like – just make sure you get your bottle from an established Chinese medicine hall. Nim Jiom Pei Pa Koa is made in Hong Kong and now comes in a sugar-free version!
Notes from Wikipedia:
1. A study at the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine published in a 1994 article, “Pharmacological studies of nin jion pei pa koa”, indicated that Pei Pa Koa had significant effect on relieving coughs, removing sputum, relieving asthma in vivo (on living subjects) and in vitro (in a lab).
2. At one point in 2006, Pei Pa Koa was recalled in the Philippines as the Bureau of Food and Drugs found Formalin (a chemical used for preserving cadavers) in all Pei Pa Koa products in the market. However, a few months after the recall, Pei Pa Koa was released back into the market as Formalin traces were no longer found in the new Pei Pa Koa product line.
My kids and I are now taking Izumio Hydrogen water and Super Lutein (Made in Japan).
What is Izumio Hydrogen water?
IZUMIO is a beverage manufactured by dissolving a high concentration of hydrogen in mineral water .
Hydrogen is the smallest atom in the chemical chart making it perfect for accessing the deepest darkest parts of the body (mitochondrial cells) where others cannot reach. Every chromosome, amino acid and protein block in our bodies need Hydrogen to build good quality cells.
Hydrogen, being the smallest atom in the world:
i) is able to penetrate every cell mitochondria in our body (including our DNA) and
ii) has the most powerful reducing properties, resulting as
A STRONG ANTIOXIDANT.
I started on the most exciting journey towards good health when I started drinking 3 packs of Izumio hydrogen water and 2 softgels x 3 of Super Lutein for my muscle pain.
Now, the kids and I drink 1 pack of Izumio hydrogen water and chew on 2 softgels x 3 (1 softgel per day for kids) Super Lutein to stay healthy
What’s Super Lutein?
Super Lutein are *pure* vegetable carotenoids extract liquid capsules:
- 6 carotenoids (lutein, lycopene, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin and crocetin)
- Vitamin E and
- equal amounts of essential B vitamins (B1 – thiamine, B6 – riboflavin and B12).
3 Super Lutein capsules offers 4 servings of fruit, 5 servings of vegetables of 6 colours of all the vegetable nutrients that we essentially need in our bodies for optimum health.
Here’s Super Lutein (1 bottle of Super Lutein = 100 capsules), which are vegetable carotenoids extract liquid capsules:
If you snip off the edge of a Super Lutein soft gel and spread a very thin layer of it on a damp tissue with your fingers, you will see the natural pigments from your fruit and vegetables. This is what we are consuming.
All natural carotenoids still in its natural liquid state that enables organ absorption within 20-40 minutes.
Instead of taking herbal remedies, which have counterfeits or quality control, why not sip on a 200 ml pack of Izumio hydrogen water, which tastes like water and chew on 2 softgels?
1 box of Izumio hydrogenized water = 30 x 200 ml packs
No fake/counterfeit medicines. No more antibiotics, thank you.
