Bye 2013, welocme 2014

I am very happy to say good bye to 2013 with no regrets…. much have happened but the beauty of 2013 is that I have survived it socially, financially and politically…

Socially I have met and made more new friends and mostly keep them. I have found more have bigger troubles than myself…thus easier to be grateful for what I have…. a very thrifty wife refusing a new car but instead take the cash instead…children progressing well in their lives too… seeing more supporters doing better as well has been a source of happiness whenever I visited them..

Financially, now I have cleared the critical part of the debt accumulated for believing in a friend in 2006…now only to start rebuilding and regaining what was lost since then…but only being grateful that the struggle to help more people happier can go on..Thank God i manage to survive my little crisis without invoking help from others… only the political struggle was slower because of the tight budget and its constraints…. but happy to note more opposition candidadtes win the seats in both the State Assembly as well as Parliament in the last general election …

It is also the year to see that STAR can win a State seat in Sabah despite the severe divisions within the Opposition .. STAR is still making progress in gaining more support from the constituents.

What is most encouraging is that we are making progress in the herbal industry… now only waiting for enough money to start making them into the market… it will be a new start for all poisoning cases, drug addiction and alcoholism…. it will be also an important contributions in other illnesses..just last night a guest came with a hangover from the previous night drinking, thanking me for making her feel much better after taking the “special tea” we made and enjoy… at least the tea kept me looked,felt, and stayed young…Thank you God,

And may one day all of you can be free illnesses which the herbal Tea, my special one can heal…poisoning, addiction, alcohlism, drug reactions etc……In 2013, the Intellectual Property for the tea was approved…..Image.

One of the above herb is known to be useful as well… millions more are there to be discovered and used. I have have laready found one which has been very useful in healing contusions, sprains bruises and broken bones… i got whiplash injury which was healed in less than 24 hours without using any modern medicine or painkillers…sustained the injury on the 29th night, iwas all right next ady adn no thing to show for the injury now… a wonderful herb the Bidayuh learnt from a big brown bird… now i processed it into an oil form….very good for acute sport injury… instead of one or two weeks layoff, the injured player can go back and play in a few days… and broken bones, the most 3 weeks for our experience… the bone heals faster than ever noticed before in my years of medical parctice…

So 2014 can be a very good hope for humanity who wants to live a very healthy life and wants a faster recovery from any acute physiscal injury including broken bones.

So good bye to 2013, and i say welcome to a New year, 2014.

Whose Health any Government is protecting?

Man normally makes Laws to benefit vested interests – the interests of their supporters and constituents.

The enactment of Traditional and Complementary Medicine Act appears top fall into this category as i explore further into the Act where we had the briefing by officials of the Ministry Of health, Malaysia. Under the Acts eight bodies formed by the respective groups which had been lobbying for recognition by the Ministry for many years now. Eventually the Law constituted to regulate and recognize traditional Healers and complimentary medicine of Malaysia was passed by the Parliament. The Ministry of Health under this Law has decided to recognize only 8 bodies already instituted before the Law was even passed. An application by one body for Sarawak was turned down based on the concept of 1Malaysia and the need for all Traditional Healers and practitioners must register themselves under the 8 approved bodies. I walked out of that briefing telling them that the Law is GOOD FOR “MALAYA equals to Malaysia” but not Malaysia as it was formed. Furthermore those who briefed us that they are only implementers and was not ready to listen to suggestions as how make the Law more Malaysian. As usual, Malayan Civil Servants want to tell Sarawakians that only them are right so I walked out from the briefing as it would be a waste of my precious time on earth.

To-day we had a good discussion about the Act and one of us in the know confirmed that the Act was meant to meet the demands of those from the West and one Minister from MCA made the ruling for the Act to be done….Heaven helped us that after PRU13, Malaysian Chinese Association(MCA), a Chinese based political Party, a partner of the Natinoal Front, is no longer the Minister Of Health… No Malaysian should be made to resolve Malaya interests alone…. all Laws must incorporate the interests of Sabah and Sarawak as well.

Take this Act as a good example, 1Malaysia must not be the reason to ignore the diversity of Traditional Healing methods practiced in Sabah and Sarawak. The 8 bodies approved by the Ministry have no clue as to how Sarawakians and Sabahans have been able to survive using their Traditional knowledge of their Healers, their Priests and priestesses where none of three communities of the Malaya- the Malays, the Chinese and the Indians in Malaya could understand. And yet they want these Healers to register themselves under of the approved 8 bodies. Take the Bidayuh community which i am more familiar with right now, there is no way where any of the registered 8 bodies can give certificate to anyone at any price. Our Healers are recognized by the respective villagers themselves, but how can the Government say “yes” or “no ” to that community except a local body well equipped to know.

So whose health is the Malaysian Government going to protect by this Act? The consumers…they would know what they are paying for. Only the vested interests who want to control for reasons best known to themselves as Professor Dr. Wong did mentioned, “Why one of the Approved Body has the grandfather, the son and grandson in charge?’ but I stopped from saying more as the real issue here is a “political” decision made by an MCA Minister of Health for reasons best known to himself…. but will be good enough for Sarawak and Sabah Traditional Healers as a whole.

Discovery of a Herbal antidote

It was in 2006 when a Canadian trained doctor found out that there is a herbal antidote to Paraquat chloride poisoning. Up to that day the kill rate of this weed killer is 100% So he watched with exasperation his nephew’s son died in August 2006 at the age of 19 in a district Hospital.
He was so frustrated that his grandson dying and he is not equipped with a knowledge which could have saved him. Till to-day a scientifically proven method has not been able to save any Paraquat Chloride victim, especially in hospitals in Sarawak or Malaysia for that matter. Taking this weedkiller at a specific small dose means certain death if taken to any of these hospitals. Modern medical treatment cannot avert a certain death yet.

So on that fateful day he had a covenant with TOPA, the Bidayuh name for God.

“You have asked me to be a Healer, but yet an incomplete one. Here I am watching my grandson dying yet I cannot help him in anyway”, He said. Then continued, “Help me to be a complete Healer by showing me the antidote to this poison.” In less than two weeks after he found a Traditional Healer who told him that he has cured two of his own relatives sent home to die by hospital Authorities but are still alive from his herbal treatment.

He requested whether he could showed him the herb. He eagerly did. Thus to-day, only the two can treat Paraquat Poisoning with almost 100% cure rate. He had lost only one case in Sabah so far….from severe secondary complications.

However over these years the herbs are effective in all type of poisonings, chemical or biological. It worked like magic in three snake bites giving instant relief within half an hour of oral intake. It has saved the life of one woman bitten by wasps which also killed three of her children. Could have saved one of her child but the doctors refused to give permission for the antidote to be given by gastrointestinal tube in the ICU but given dialysis to “clean out” the poison!

So knowing how to save life, he is still frustrated by bureaucracy and politics that people are still suffering unnecessarily… but the answer to all type of poisoning, intoxication and addiction is here NOW! The Traditional Healer has saved three Drug Addicts… after his treatment, the three remain free from drugs.

Trials on alcoholics and drinkers have shown that drunks will sober after half an hour and an alcoholic stopped drinking for two weeks with no withdrawal syndrome.

So here is a knowledge need by many people but is still on the shelf as we have yet the means to produce the antidote for the world.

Traditional Healing and traditional Healers of Borneo

Every human society has its share of healers who can do healing based on their faith. These healers are empowered in two ways – the “white” and the “black”. They can heal in their own ways and methods but in all cases of those who do not use herbs and medicine but just coconut oils or other oils or just plain water these mediums are being blessed by their guardians angel to do either good or harm.

As a medically trained doctor, I find it interesting when we can only send mentally ill patients to Psychiatric Hospital where more often than not condemn them to be on “drugs” for life when a traditional healer friend could heal them where modern medicine had failed. Two “mental patients” I witnessed him healed are still living a normal life now. I am also amazed at my own ability to cure three relatives of mine from skin problems which plagued them for years of medical treatment before they met me. In my case, i just asked my Guardian to come to help me heal them and then blow on their heads and amazingly they tell me that they are cured.

My own knees, twice i had pain in them, but after being healed the traditional way, in both occasions it became normal next day.

On June 15th 2010, while walking on foot to a village for a NYOBENG ceremony, I was attacked by an “unseen” when walking on a side track because the wet and muddy bridge made of two big bamboo stems without a proper railing was deemed to be to dangerous to cross…. so I went down to wade across the stream and through a path back to the main one. Then on that side path i felt a sudden sharp shearing pain in my left knee for every “wrong” step I made…yet on examination there was no apparent damage, bruises or cut on the knee. I almost did not make to the village. I had to limp all the way.

In the evening, one traditional healer was called to help. He was able to extract a piece of bone like a small surgical knife. For the whole of next day that was still pain on that knee but no more shearing pain making me limped throughout the day ceremony. During the ceremony in the Head House, i asked the same Traditional Healer to examine the knee and he extracted another smaller piece of bone. I then asked another friend to examine with pig’s blood in case any more objects were left. He took away what looked like a molar tooth….you know within two hours I was pain free.

No pain on the knee which still appears normal…. no swelling and no pain when I pressed or massaged the knee as it were the day i got it. Worse painkillers i had taken, had no effect on the pain level nor the heat rub i had used …. that is simply, modern treatment and medicine had no use on me at that time. Yes, you may say that it is only in my mind,  so be it. As was, possibly Lazarus just pretended to die waiting for Jesus to come to prepare the miracle to make him live again and was all the miracles he performed on the deaf, the blind, the handicapped or the woman who had been bleeding for twenty years… luckily I had two friends who have the power to heal like Jesus then…

The funny thing about that knee of mine was that on our nine hours walk back next, it would not bend to give me a normal walking step when going downhill. Uphill i could take proper steps but not going downhill. Thus i would warn our company saying, “Beware folks, I am going down on first gear again…” meaning that I would put my right foot down first to the step and the drag my straight left knee down to the same step all the way down the steps on the downhill… of course i managed the journey but it took us another extra hour than normal..

Waking up next day my knee was back to normal and i could walk and drive normally pain free after two days of pain. So what was happening, to this day i am scratching my head for the answer as it is possible that there is more to what we know as facts now.

Yet yesterday, i was with a friend who told me that he had a nephew who almost died this year because he was “poisoned” by a “black” Healer. Luckily for his nephew someone had an “oil” which had been handed down in the family for generations, he was saved. Sadly to say that the “black” healer got sick and died of the same illness he had inflicted on his nephew. That was how we came to talked about Jesus and his healing power which is the “white” power meaning it’s God’s power. He said it is all right to keep that to heal but not the “Black” which could be Satan…

So is there a case for the Ministry of Health to recognize these Healers who are doing miraculous work helping thousand and thousands of people throughout Malaysia alone?

Intoxication, Poisoning, Addiction – should there be a better approach?

As the Koran says, according to my friend, “for every human problem God has already an answer!”

Man makes Food and Drug Act reasoning that man must be protected from harmful drugs, not God. Yet drugs like Alcohol is freely available. It is one of the worst drug made by men but because the majority like to get “high” or love pubs for various reasons, alcohol is a legal drug freely available if you are the right age. Yet it is responsible for many health, mental social problems. Yet Cocaine, morphine and many designer drugs are outlawed making billions of dollars spent in many budgets for its enforcement…. but the moral decadence continue to go up as the new generation demands new excitement which are no longer reading books etc…

Is there a better answer?

Intoxication, i already have the answer. My tea with a Trademark of Dr “patau” Special 1 will provide the answer for those who want to get drunk but become sober within the hour. I have tried this already and it proved to be very effective. Alternatively those who want to drink but cannot get drunk for at least 24 hours after taking the Tea it is also possible. I have tried this also amongst my own circle of priesthood, we do not get drunk during the three days off an annual festival called Gawea Sowa. Before i gave them the tea, by the second day they were drunk already, now no more. Three friends complained next morning when we were on a special fieldwork/seminar in Sabah that the beers and Stout they drank worth over a thousand Malaysian Ringgit had no effect on them. They were bright and smiling next morning with no red eyes or hangover. In I was able also to be the second “Tapai” drinker next day, yet the alcohol I drank is just like drinking ordinary water.

Poisoning, yes also there is an answer! The first i save from the knowledge is my brother grandson. He took Paraquat Chloride. He landed in one District Hospital destined to die as all Paraquat Chloride to date once hospitalized even with all the exercise of present day knowledge on Toxicology. However next day i was informed. I gave him the fresh preparation of the Herb. He recovered almost immediately he quarreled with the mother because he was asked to taken more and more of the preparation which has a tart metal taste. Then came in one girl in another State who was sent home to die after six days of modern treatment. Then on the seven-day, I received a call from her uncle who knows about the antidote from the headline news in one of their local newspaper. Then I sent two bottles of 120 cc of the fresh extracts. As her condition was really bad, she could not drink anymore. So I instructed the family to her teaspoonful by teaspoonful to finish the extract as much as possible. From this 15-year-old girl I knew that only one single dose is enough for a full recovery at the village level.

Then the next step was a case of another poisoning. This time i already have the tea for trial in many other minor poisoning case such as snake and bee bites or even allergies to second generation penicillin. So after i gave the antidote the patient mother asked me to prepare a fresh form as i had told her earlier that if after taking the dose and no effect after one hour she should called me for a fresh preparation. However when i asked her what happened, she told me, “Well, he has not recovered but is now sleeping”

So i told her, “Why can you wait till he wakes up and then you ask him how he feels.” Later i received a call from her telling me that the son had woke up and now is able to breathe on his own. One more day in ICU he was transferred to the ordinary ward for another three more days observation. So far 13 lives had been saved… as only those who know about my tea survives… the rest is still on 100% kill rate.

Intoxication, so far my friend, the traditional Healer, had successfully rehabilitated three drugs addicts. I just gave yesterday one bottle to one Drug Addict to see what will happen.

Community Based Natural Resources Management

I just came back from Kota Kinabalu after attending a common sharing seminar of the lessons the various NGOS learned during the period each of us implement the projects sponsored by the Danish Government through MENGO under their DANIDA. I was luckily picked as one of the five participants sent by our JKKK PUSAT KROKONG to attend the seminar from 27th to 29th January 2010 at the Crocker Range National Park at Keningau, Sabah.

Since February last year with an allocation of RM 200, 000 from DANIDA, we have undertaken the budgeted activities as per scheduled in the Agreement signed by our Committee Chairman, Sdr Micheal Sawing. The seminar was the last activity under the Agreement and in all 61 participants from the seven NGOS attended. We had a good time to learn from each others’ experiences. Many commented that the period was too short actually.

Some of the participants had gone home, but those of us who were left came to this village in four vans. We had our morning tea with the villagers and then later lunch drinking “TAPAI” also from a jar which was kept full. The Village head would fill the jar to measure how much you would consume at one partake – minimum one plastic cup measuring about 300ccs. The most taken was almost two cups.

The remaining participants after lunch. Before that we were at the waterfalls and the “Face” which you see behind me above. The trail to the Face is about 700 meters from the Ranger Station where we had our Lunch. Five of us had a wonderful and refreshing bath in the cold clear water.

Heaven is there. Clear and unspoiled environment. We had a very good time. It is up to the community and the National Park Authorities to work hand in hand not only to maintain, enhance and retain the beauty of nature we are vested with but to revenue to all concerned.

Time have come when the Government and all the communities living within each specific environment have to work together to showcase our natural resources and wealth to benefit as many people as possible. Any community can be mobilized to play a role in the conservation and management of the natural resources. After all, it is the community within the specific area which had been able to keep the environment to the present level. Only new needs and pressures had brought new destruction to nature, especially to our remaining tropical rain forests under various pretexts.

“Universal” Antidote- a case for Biodiversity and IP protection

Thanks to Bernama, The Borneo Posts and the late 24 year Iban Lady, Helen Mena, who died because conventional medicine had failed to “cure” her, most of you have read about the good and the bad news about the availability of a CURE which could have saved her life and many others if only greed, selfishness and “piracy” are not embedded in all our human system of Bureaucracies and Businesses. The old societies and cultures know a lot of cures which can contribute towards a better and less inefficient human journey on this earth. We could enjoy better health and longer life if proper nutrition, exercise and less societal pressure are available to all and lastly cheaper and better curative services are available to those who need them. For example, a friend of mine is still recuperating from just a scorpion bite, despite two months of hospitalization and nursing services. This is totally unnecessary. If only he had known that I have the herb to cure him within just a few hours, he does not have to suffer these last few months. The need for profit and the laws to protect Intellectual properties, however, have hampered the development and availability of many health supplements and natural cures taking away unnecessary lives or giving untold pains and miseries to the unfortunates.

Let’s take the case of this humble herb, which I would like to call it for the time being, DUH PENAWAR or if the husband and/or the parents of Helen agree later on we could call it, “Helenmenaia” in her memory.

It is there all the while but I was not taught about it in my formal medical education. I had to watch a number of people related to me dying from “PARAQUAT POISONING” and heard many more who had died because of it as well as other poisoning because we are not taught about the most effective antidote which can give the cure as demonstrated by this herb. I finally heard about it when I eventually asked a Traditional Healer whether he knows of any herb, good for Paraquat poisoning after the death of my nephew’s son who was hospitalized and waiting to die in a District hospital for two weeks, where conventional medicine and myself failed to save him because the needed knowledge is NOT KNOWN presently to conventional medicine. He told me that there is a herb which he had used to save two of his relatives from “PARAQUAT POISONING” who had been hospitalized but “were sent home to die”.

“Feeding them with a fresh preparation of the herb, they are still alive till to-day”. he said.

Being naturally curious and knowing that what is very important to me is NOT WHAT I ALREADY KNOW BUT WHAT I DO NOT YET! It is “what I don’t know” is what I need to learn and learning is an on-going process. I thus waited and waited for the opportunity to study its effectiveness, efficacy and safety of the herb.

As for safety, it was simple. I just took a few leaves and taste and ate them. (Hey, wait don’t copy me “LAH” because some leaves are really poisonous. I tried one leaf in my friend’s garden, and it almost paralyzed my tongue until I took my antidote, only then my mouth became normal. Yea, what an Idiot i was and am….so don’t just simply try every leaf just to find out whether such is good to and safe or not… SAKIT PERCUMA NANTI….. KALAU MATI jangan salahkan saya… Bodoh sendiri jadi “copycat”….” However, by the simple tasting method, I know that the plant is safe to eat. I still eat or drink part of the potion which I make from the herb before I give it to the patients.

Next case study… Fortunately over time I was able to test the herb on two cases of weedicide poisonings, two snake bites, one wasp bite, one unknown bite. The last one was a case of poisoning from the urine of one type of caterpillars causing a “weeping skin reaction” on the left side of her neck as well as painful sensations under her skin and swelling on her left cheek, despite a week of conventional medical treatment. Treatment with the antidote, however, brought a cure in all cases: – for poisonings it took about two days for a complete recovery, the snake bites in less than twelve hours for total recovery with a single dose, bee bites a matter of few minutes, and for the caterpillar urine case in less than seven minutes the painful sensation was gone.

Yes, it is very effective in the seven cases tried so far. But what about other snakes like cobra, etc. Yet to be tested…. Other poisons, yet to be tried… Yes more studies and documentation to be done, this is why I wanted to work collaboratively with the Health Ministry, but to-date no response to my letter of offer. I understand their problem because our system won’t allow them to do so unless further testing and documentation said it is safe to do so. However it can be done as an adjunct therapy and study. It will take the courage of a decision maker to say, “YES”. Since the roadblocks are human created, any human being with the power to decide can take away the roadblocks. Worse still the world maybe deprive of this antidote, if for reasons best known to our present decision makers, more roadblocks can be created….. to its development and commercialization. So both expedition and destruction is possible. So let us hope SAVING MORE LIVES become our joint responsibility, duty and commitment. The lady needs NOT DIE!

IP protection is needed so that more stakeholders can benefit from any discovery. The process to obtain it has to be simplified so that it can do easily. Only benefits can be assured and the availability of the product to everyone is possible. Right now, because of the roadblocks put in place by the Ministries concerned, most of the good supplements and medicines, available in our jungle and known to the Indigenous population, are not available to those who need them. What have been leaked to the respective “experts” such as the “Bintangor tree” and “Tongkat Ali” now became the IP of others. But the knowledge belonged to the poor “sources” who remain poor and unknown and not recognized by the world.

Those supplements and medicine, which are already known to the world are beyond the reach of the poor. My pharmacist friend of mine told me of the high cost of registering any supplements also have increased the cost of the supplement.

The need to conserve of our tropical forest is now very obvious because of there GOD has provided us with all that we need for our survival on this planet. Before we destroy all the good plants which are of potential medicinal value, we have to take stock of our plant diversity. Biodiversity must be protected and studied so that full use of its availability can benefit all of us to lead a happy and healthy life besides economically.

Why do the Chinese and the Indians made the majority of the human population on this planet? From what I read, they are the only people who eat or drink the most diverse food in the world. Anything that “grows, swim or fly” becomes their sources of energy and wellbeing, except for beef amongst Hindus and pork amongst the Muslims. Foods are even classified in the Chinese diet into its various actions and functions: such hot, cold, bitter , sweet ,etc…
On top of their diverse dietary habits, they also use of a lot of herbs for medical purposes and drinking teas of various types for various reasons…… except those who want to make quick profit, they start to adulterate their foods and herbal medicines with harmful ingredients that we all know, read and/or hear of in the news- for example, Melamine in milk and milk products lately, Cortisone or others, known to those in our Public Health workers. So is the Indian system of Ayurvedic medical practice.

Thus as my old Chemistry Teacher, Dr. Sagunam who called, congratulated and told me, “Plant is life, without plant there will be no Life”. Take heed all. Plants are food, medicine and all. Without plants using the carbon dioxide we all emit, we will die in no time…. even if the potential absence of the OZONE layer will get all of us or the future generation roasted alive by the direct Sun radiations…. All those in the coastal cities will either move to higher grounds or get drowned as our ice cap will melt and flood even the New Yorkers! …
