Why cat?
  • almost every herbal shop in Asia has a cat. Maybe to catch rodents or maybe to bring some feng-shui good luck?
  • we're in Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand. The previous name is Siam, hence the cat is Siamese ;-)
  • cats are cute, siamese cats are mystical with their spots and blue eyes.
  • we love cats, so here's a cat on the header of our website ;-)

Corydalis:

We were selling this amazing herb long ago it became a sensation as natural safe remedy for pain releive. More details are here:

Krachai Dum:

The demand for this herb is overwhelming. Our Japanese friends are buying it in enormous quantities as amazingly effective blood tonic and overall health improments. We had a chance to get some Krachai Dam (Dum) a.k.a. Black Ginger, for our customers as well.

Liver recovery:

Many requests from our customers are about liver damages. For some it became very serious issue. So we carefully study the subject through Traditional Chinese Medicine approach, did some "in house research" and offer this remedy for Chronic Hepatits and early stages of Cirrhosis:

New treatment may help neonatal liver disease associated with parenteral nutrition

Exogenous glucagon-like peptide 2 (GLP-2) treatment may help fight neonatal parenteral nutrition associated liver disease (PNALD), a new study suggests.

Omega-3 fatty acids may help improve treatment, quality of life in cancer patients

Adding omega-3 fatty acids to anti-tumor medications may improve treatment response and quality of life for cancer patients according to a new study. The study examined 50 patients with advanced pancreatic cancer.

Expert panel sets nutrition guidelines to manage GI symptoms in autism

Targeting bacteria causing ulcers may prevent stomach cancer

Acupuncture impacts same biologic pathways in rats that pain drugs target in humans

In animal models, acupuncture appears to impact the same biologic pathways ramped up by pain and stress, analogous to what drugs do in humans. The researchers say their animal study provides the strongest evidence to date on the mechanism of this ancient Chinese therapy in chronic stress.

Elderberry benefits air travelers

Intercontinental air travel can be stressful and affect a passenger's physical and psychological wellbeing. Whilst jet lag and fatigue remain the best known problems, holidaymakers also often experience upper respiratory symptoms. The negative health effects of international air travel are well documented but now it seems that the common elderberry can provide some relief.

Most chronic pain patients use alternative therapies, but many don't tell their doctors

More than half of chronic pain patients in a managed care setting reported using chiropractic care or acupuncture or both, but many of these patients didn't discuss this care with their primary care providers. These study results suggest that better care coordination is needed among patients and physicians.

" Editorial:Cancer is a difficult disease, but it is not fatal .."

A physician once stated, "Cancer is a difficult disease, but it is not fatal. Patients have a good chance to recover." This statement sounds consolatory but basing on our recent research data, it can very well be true. The prestigious Japanese physician, Dr Fukumi Morishige, M.D.,Phd., currently involved in the research of Ganoderma's role in cancer control, is a researcher at the Linus Pauling Institute of Science & Medicine - an American institute that had been awarded the most Nobel prizes. He also occupies an important role in Europe's medical fields as well, and is the only Japanese authority employed by the international cancer group. The following is his speech and case reports on . "I have been a surgeon for 37 years and have performed numerous operations. I have a keen interest in surgical operation especially when I was young but gradually questions began to appear. I always feel that the ideal would be to induce the natural immunity power within oneself. Being a surgeon, I had countless occasions to encounter cancer cases; however, the key to cancer controls is in its early detection, which is easier said than done. About one in a hundred would be considered a good percentage. Nowadays, regular physical check-ups is the trend and this is good practice, but we have to realize that one cannot let our guards down just because cancer was not detected at the time of check-ups. People often suspect the MD of misdiagnosing when cancer was detected at a later date. This notion is incorrect as there are many undiscovered cases even with monthly check-ups. For example, in the case of penetrance type stomach cancer, it is one of the most difficult to detect and these account for about 25% of the cases, therefore, prevention is equally important. It is better to employ preventive measures in the case of cancer but there are no set methods. One can always rely on dietary control, but here again it is not a prescribed regiment. The best method at the present is Ganoderma.
