Diet for indigestion / peptic ulcer / heartburn / gastric pain

leave a comment »

Things that I ate today and might contributed to my indigestion:
cauliflowers.
milk (possibly not low fat).
yoghurt (possibly high fat).
pomelo chunks in my yoghurt (pomelo is a member of citrus fruits!).
strawberries (3 pieces).
blueberries.
Spread of Nutella, ice cream that went with 4 slices of wholemeal bread. I had 2 slices in the morning, 2 slices for tea break.

My catering supplied these three dishes that possibly contributed to my indigestion:
deep fried meat ball.
cauliflowers.
salted vegetables (which I threw away).
I am going to stop my trial. Bye!

Breathless! Help. I MUST take care of my diet. Eat more healthily.

Though strawberries and blueberries are healthy choice, the amount of pesticides used may be worrying. I will try to eat less berries, but more fruits that require me to peel their skin.

EAT LOW-FAT FOOD.
low-fat lean meat, fish, skinless chicken.
low-fat milk / yoghurt.
tofu.
pasta.
steamed white rice, whole grain rice, brown rice.
EAT LOW-SUGAR FOOD.
baked / grilled meats are OK, but not fried food.
oatmeal.
EAT SMALL but FREQUENT meals.

AVOID:
seeded whole grain breads.
fried food: fried meat / fish / sausages.
fried rice.
bread with nuts / dried fruits.
biscuits.
butter.
strawberry jams.
preserves with seeds.
spicy foods.
curry.
green peppers.
onions.
broccoli.
cauliflower.
Brussels sprouts.
cabbage.
cucumber.
corn.
dishes with tomato sauces / tomato soup.
citrus fruits (orange, lemon, grapefruit / pomelo).
pineapples.
berries.
caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate).
alcohol e.g. beer, wine.
whole milk.
chocolate milk.
big meals.

Not to buy these items anymore:
berries.
whole milk.
yoghurt with apple and pomelo chunks. It is unwise to mix milk and pomelo.

How to endure the unendurable?

leave a comment »

These are examples of events are challenging us:
the death of loved ones
failing ill (severe illnesses)
failed relationships e.g. divorce, being written off by friends that one treasures
bankruptcy / loss
failures / defeats / major disappointments
labor / giving birth
wars / riots
natural disasters

Who has never experienced at least one of those events?
The answer is nobody.

We must equip ourselves with the ability to endure the unendurable.
How to master the art of endurance?

Prayer. Believe that God is always with us.
Positive affirmations. Believe that the mother nature is taking care of us, the entire universe is protecting us through the law of divine protection.

Use the power of subconscious mind, especially the passing over and visualization techniques. When I was a kid, I learned to focus on the scenery picture in my dentist’s room, to distract my mind from the pain of my tooth being extracted. I imagine I visited the place with hilly green pasture and snow-capped mountains at the back. Indeed, before I was 30 years old, I have been to Switzerland (a place that seems fit to the scenery) thrice.

Relax and release all your burdens to the invincible (God, mother nature, universe).
Concentrate / focus on your breathing. Use alternate one-nostril technique.
Listen to soothing music.
Read inspiring words.
Meditate / self-hypnotize.

See the big picture in space and time. In X amount of time, we will experience less pain. Time heals. All things are passing.

Think of our role models. What are our role models going to do in such situation? Bring the matters to our daily counselor meeting, ask for their opinions.
For delivery, I will think of how my mother lovingly brought me to the world. If she can, so can I.

Master the art of detachment.

Learn a lesson, especially for sufferings and pains from failed relationships or failures in school or work. By enduring our pains, we progress to the next level of our lives; from a child to an adult, people may experience the pain of growing up; from a single woman to a mother, women will experience the pain of birth.

Understand that things are complementing. If we do not know what ugliness is, we will never appreciate what beauty is. If we have never experienced pain, we will not appreciate our pleasure or joy.

Remember that if you are willing to endure more pain than the person next to you, winning will be your only option. Mentor MR told me (when i I was in teen struggling on my own without my parents) 吃得苦中苦,方为人上人.

世上不劳而获的,我想只有父母的爱。
A joke: But part of you (before you were fertilized) swam really hard, so there is no free lunch in this world.

An admirer HY graduated this month a year ago and brought his parents around. I am proud of you!
Love Story(1970) – Theme From Love Story (Finale)

I am sorry that I did not say NO well, hope that I would not hurt you too much. His Dad has artistic interest, he has musical interest, all of you seem so talented to me.
Honestly, I can be a hard core geek, so I was looking for a non-geek.

Sometimes life can overwhelm you with work.
Just prioritize and knock things out 1 at a time.

May 15th
I suffered a sudden sharp facial pain or headache during descent, which increases as the aircraft approaches ground level.
This is termed as aerosinusitis.
Particularly for my case was sinus frontalis.
Perhaps, I had suffered from nose blocking for the past few days. How to treat? The air stewardess gave me a sweet.

This indicates that I have a vulnerable sinus. Thus, I must be more careful than others.
How to prevent in the future?
Chronic sinusitis is a condition that is present for more than three months. My pain subsided after the plan landed, so I am OK.

Note: Inflammations of the frontal sinus can give rise to serious complications, as it is in close proximity to the orbit and cranial cavity (orbital cellulitis, epidural and subdural abscess,
meningitis).

Install VLC Media Player so that I can listen to my voice notes taken using BB (in im laptop).

I win Revlon gift set.
Though the collection site is remote (hence it took a morning in the 1st week of May), yet I met a heroine of mine today (a female driver who earns $1,200 monthly). Without her, I would have to walk in heavy rain. Thank you!

New eyeshadow (Revlon CustomEyes 020 Naturally Glamorous): Keep. It is time to throw / give away my old, very seldom use eyeshadow. New lipstick: macaroon. will give away as a gift. My lips are naturally red. I love my lips. I am loyal to my only lipstick that can change color according to the layers of application.
New mascara (001 blackest black): it is time to throw away old clotted dried mascara. Before I throw them away, I can declot and create an art piece.
New foundation (Revlon PhotoReady 006 Medium Beige): to give away, does not match my skin tone (I wish it is 001 Ivory). I love my Kose foundation.
Revlon 020 Tawny Peach powder blush: Ultra-soft powder blush adds a natural burst of color to cheeks. Blends smoothly and easily for a streak-free finish.
Revlon beyond natural smoothing primer: to apply before foundation.
