The Danger of Hormone Imbalance (Part 1 Hormone Series)


“I just have no energy. Sometimes I actually have to take a nap in the afternoon,” 

This is a common complaint among patients in their mid 40s, when they should be in the prime of their life.

Having children who are practically out of the house, finally having time to socialize and nurture their own interests. Most mid 40year olds are working less hours which can give both job satisfaction and regular time to spend at the gym or doing other exrcises.

Yet, many feel consistently  “under-the-weather”.

Not only is the energy low, they are particularly vulnerable to flu, and suffered from low libido.

Some are at their treadmill almost every day, but it does not seem to make a difference like before. The weight seem to pile on despite the exercises and not eating much.

Sometimes there's a feeling of sadness or "downness". It is not depression. Sometimes the feeling of agittion and irritation wihtout reason. The feeling is not your imaginatin either.

This is an extremely common, yet often undiagnosed problem...

A hormonal imbalance.

Hormones regulate every function of our body, and when they are well balanced, we feel healthy, energetic and more in control of our lives.

As we get older, there is a naturally occurring decline in hormones such as oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone.

This can result in symptoms as varied as dry and wrinkled skin, memory loss, erectile dysfunction in men, low libido and vaginal dryness in women, fatigue, anxiety, mood swings, sleeplessness, weight gain, high cholesterol and more.

These can be truly devastating to your health and your lifestyle.

Unfortunately, hormones are rarely considered as a cause, except in the context of menopause, diabetes and thyroid issues – although imbalances can be addressed. There is also rarely any preventative action taken to ensure that your hormones stay balanced even before problems occur, although this is really important to maintain good health.

When should you consider looking into your hormone balance?

First, if you are experiencing any of the symptoms outlined above, and there seems to be no convincing explanation why. 

Second, if you want to prevent problems from developing and keep your body fine-tuned as you age, just as you exercise to keep fit or perhaps get vitamin infusions to restore vital minerals.

A comprehensive hormone profiling test which include a blood and saliva test can be done to
 provide a full picture of a person's hormone levels.

Once the results are out, a diagnosis can be made and any problems be addressed.

The aim is to treat any imbalances that is uncovered and get one feeling fit and well again. 

Hormone imbalances can be very serious.

I'll tell you more in my next blog.

Loose Weight in 3weeks !

Finally found a quick fix to a long term problem! This method not only can reduce the excess weight fast and permanently, it does this by burning the reserved stubborn fat in the body and not the structural fat which easily returns with a vengeance once a program is over. In summary, this "Enhanced" Weight Loss Program aims to : 1. Loose excess weight esp from stubborn fats 2. Increase and Reset Basal Metabolic Rate to a higher level and by doing the #1 and #2, able to 3. Maintain the weight loss forever! ( don't we all wish for this?) . With all this in mind, I decided to embark on this program myself. It is Day 8 today. This protocol should reduce my weight from 0.5 to 1.0lb per day. I only need to follow a special diet plan and take the medication daily. Total loss expected if all progresses accordingly will be 6 to 9kg (or upto 15lbs). I started with 64.8kg on Day1, went up to 64.9kg on Day2 and have progressively lost between 0.3 to 0.7kg daily since. Today I am at

Vulvalar Whitening

Many Asian women experience a darkening of the inner thigh skin or the perineum skin as they age and especially after pregnancy. This is a very common phenomenon and can be quite unbecoming especially in a swimsuit or bikini. Sometime this darkening is due to the rubbing of inner thigh skin together due to excess fat in the thighs or a fungal infection which causes itchiness and scratching. Our new laser can now treat this area of skin. Each treatment can improve the condition by at least 20%. Because of this I usually recommend 3 sessions with each session 1 month apart. Although I must say that some women have found satisfactory outcome even after just 1 treatment.

5 Proven Methods for Permanent Fat Reduction

I have come across many clients who ask me about fat removal and they often confuse this with weightloss. Due to the many marketing ads all around us that offer"slimming" procedures, I find that many women are confused as to wether they want to loose weight or reduce fat. So I categorize clients like this: A. those who are overweight or obese with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 27 an above. You will need to loose overall weight for a healthier and trimmer looking body. There will be excess fat here and there but it is no use thinking about them when over all you have excess fat including visceral fat. And B. those who are of normal body weight (BMI 25 and below) or just slightly overweight (BMI 25-27) and have certain areas of stubborn fat which do not seem to go away despite exercise or would like a trimmer, better silhuoette. For FAT REDUCTION on the spot , there are several methods to loose them. These can be minimally invasive or non invasive at all. The Non
