大馬華裔婦女創業轉型基金會提高貸款數額至2萬令吉,另獲免費人壽保險及1500令吉撫恤金


欲创业的女性可以申请贷款,联络:019 - 3388 392

(雪蘭莪‧巴生13日訊)大馬華裔婦女創業轉型基金會除了在兩個月前提高貸款數額至2萬令吉後,如今再宣佈從本月起獲得申請批准者,將可獲一份免費人壽保險及1500令吉撫恤金。

大馬華裔婦女創業轉型基金會創辦人丹斯里林順平指出,該基金會於兩個月前獲得首相批准,把原有最高至1萬令吉貸款數額增加至2萬令吉。

“如今本會再次提昇婦女的利益,即從本月起獲得貸款批准者,皆可獲得免費人壽保險,倘若借貸者不幸逝世,其家屬可獲得1500令吉撫恤金。"

本月與保險公司簽約

他說,基金會非常體恤有需要者,極力為她們爭取更多福利,繼而改善和減輕她們的生活重擔。

“本會將會與保險公司洽談,料在本月內就可簽署合約,屆時本會就會公佈這份壽險的細則。"他指出,提供保險的意義,主要是一旦借貸者不幸意外殘缺或身患疾病,都能索取賠償,至於撫恤金可減輕家屬負擔。

“我們批准貸款的對象是那些經濟能力低的婦女,倘若她們有事不能繼續經營生意找生計,啟動綠色緊急計劃靈市美都和城市獅子分會28日聯辦捐血運動這份保險就能幫助到她們。"他昨晚出席一家好女性創業援助中心舉辨的“創業、圓夢"分享會,接受訪問時如此表示。

已批逾千萬令吉貸款

他指出,該基金推擴至今一年餘,該會成員在全馬跑透透大力宣傳,至今已批准逾1千萬令吉給予約1500人。

“我們發現小市鎮地區的婦女比較需要這筆貸款,她們大部份從事賣糕點等小販生意,所需貸款是在1萬令吉以下,例如霹靂、吉打和檳城等等。"“至於在城市地區因為租金及抵押金高,1萬令吉並不足夠,為此,本會向首相申請提高貸款至2萬令吉,並獲得首相批准。"他說,該會在批准款項時會審核申請者的資料,而非隨意批准,他也希望有需要者即日起向該會提出申請。

“至今這項工作進行順利,而且所有借貸者都有償還貸款,她們都非常瞭解這項貸款的意義,讓本會還可繼績幫助其他婦女。"他指出,該會希望每年可批准1千份貸款,而10年內就有1萬人受惠,這讓更多華裔婦女有更穩固的經濟收入。

林順平:計劃推出貸款配套
結合殘友單親媽媽創業

林順平指出,該會接下來的計劃,是要結合殘障人士及單親媽媽,以互補互助的方式一同經營生意。

他說,該會計劃推出一個貸款配套,即可結合8至10名的殘障人士和單親媽媽一起創業,而貸款額也會比個人貸款來得較高。

“本會之所以推行這計劃,是要幫助殘障人士和單親媽媽自立更生,政府很想幫助殘障人士,但礙於他們面對交通問題,而導致這群人士無法自立更生,為此,這計劃的概念,是要四肢健全的單親媽媽,載送殘障人士一同去做生意。"他指出,該會將會物色殘障人士及單親媽媽組織,然後在1、2個月內安排開會,一同商討如何“不過,他們必須自行尋找可靠的伙伴,本會將不會為他們安排,以免造成問題。"

林秋燕:無需抵押就可獲貸款

一家好(YIGAHO)企業私人有限公司市場董事林秋燕指出,大馬華裔婦女創業轉型基金會特別之處,除了無需任何抵押就可獲得貸款,基金會成員非常鼓勵婦女申請,甚至親自把表格送上門及為申請者填寫表格,這是一個很好的工作態度。

她說,其實,殘障人士是非常積極的一群,如果能配合單親媽媽的幫助,那絕對是很好的合作方式,有關貸款計劃必能幫到他們。

“我相信隨著貸款數額提高後,會有更多人申請,包括可開店或連鎖店經營生意。"大馬華裔婦女創業轉型基金會主席林玉惜說:“我們全馬跑動大力宣傳這項基金,把訊息推廣到各地區,本會希望可以幫助到更多有需要的華裔婦女創業。"(星洲日報/大都會)

小麦草汁有什么营养价值?

 
 小麦草早在西元1939年便由美国医学协会于《美国医学协会杂志》上发表,证实小麦草乃是一种十分珍贵的食物,当小麦草被 选为美国太空人的指定浓缩营养食品时,小麦草的卓越营养价值便再一次获得学术界的肯定。

在1930年至1980年期间,许多学术界人士纷纷对小麦草的种植、营养价值和医疗特质,进行极尽深入的研究实验,其中一些著名的研究学家,包括:查理士施奈伯博士(堪萨斯城市)、克赫拉博士(威斯康辛大学)、安.威格摩?尔博士(波士顿的希波克拉底研究所的创办人)、厄普托玛斯(G.H Thomas)(新泽西的沃田BLOOMFIELD化验所)、雷久南博士(德克萨斯大学医学中心)、罗纳赛柏博士(科罗拉多州立大学)……等。经持续不断的研究实验,终于揭开了小麦草令人振奋的超高营养价值。

许多重症患者,喝了小麦草汁都产生戏剧性的好转,因为小麦草含有丰富的叶绿素,该叶绿素的分子和人体血液的血红素分子十分类似,血红素乃是由碳原子、氢原子、氧原子和氮原子包围一个铁原子组合而成,而叶绿素则是由碳原子、氢原子、氧原子和氮原子包围一个镁原子,其中差...异便是血红素含铁、叶绿素含镁,其余皆同,故小麦草被称为“绿色的血液”,对人体而言,乃是一种最好的造血食物和活力恢复剂。

小麦草汁已经开始在世界各地流行,受到有远见的人士和团体的重视。小麦草的保健及医疗方面的奇效,更是越来越被科学研究及临床纪录所证实,公认为一种神奇的天然食品。

  美国著名土壤专家厄普托马斯(G.H Thomas)博士分析检视小麦草,找出一百多种成分,证明它的营养非常丰富。

  他和安威格摩尔博士做过一连串试验,把六只小鸡分为两组,给他们吃最易吸收的饲料,但是在其中一组的饲料之中,加进切碎了的新鲜小麦草,又在他们的饮水槽之中加了一条小麦的嫩枝。经过几星期,这些鸡都长得十分健康,可是吃过小麦草那一组鸡居然长了两倍大,而且更机警,羽毛更丰满。他们用同样的方式喂养兔子和小猫,结果也是一样。


  其实在古希腊和古罗马时代,当时的人早已奉小麦草为极有价值的贵品,特别拿它来祭神。

  中国古代也重视小麦,《本草纲目》即这样记载:
  “麦苗,气味辛,寒,无毒。主治消酒毒、暴热、酒疽、目黄。并捣烂绞汁口饮之,又解虫毒,除烦闷。解时疾狂热,退胸隔热、利小肠。作韭食、甚益颜色.




Yigaho 有机小麦草,

除了可以喝好进身体健康之外,也有保养皮肤和美容作用。完全没有化学药物,纯正的天然有机(令人充满活力的麦草汁美容面膜)皮肤不完美或色素沉淀,你也可以使用有机小麦草治疗,时间长了,会减轻或使症状完全消失。要是有安定的使用,可以使你皮肤妩媚动人,恢复弹性。小麦草也有治疗于伤口,皮疹,轻度烧伤或昆虫叮伤,水痘等.

Natural Remedies of Constipation in Children

Constipation occurs commonly in children, affecting up to 10% at any given time. Still, only 3% of parents actually seek advice from the doctor for this condition. Constipation describes the infrequent passage of stools (bowel movements) or the passage of hard stools. Any definition of constipation depends upon comparison with how often the child normally passes stools and with the usual consistency of his or her stools.


Many children normally pass stools as far apart as every few days. Regardless, you should treat hard stools that are difficult to pass and those that happen only every three days as constipation.

Constipation is not a disease. It is a symptom of a poor health condition.  This is the result of eating too much processed foods that are lacking in fiber, and insufficient fresh foods that are full of live nutrients and enzymes.

Constipation in Children Causes


Infants and children with constipation are treated differently than adults, because patterns of bowel movements change from the time they are born until they reach the age of 3 or 4 years. The majority of children with constipation do not have a medical disease or disorder causing the constipation. Rarely, a disorder causes infants and children to have significant problems moving their bowels.
Many things can contribute to constipation.
  • The most common cause in a child older than 18 months is their willful avoidance of the toilet (for various reasons). For example, toddlers are often so involved in their play that they lack time or patience for toilet breaks.
  • At school they may be concerned with lack of privacy or the cleanliness of the bathroom.
  • They may have had a prior painful or frightening experience that makes them want to avoid the bathroom. Over time, their brain learns to ignore repeated urges by the colon to visit the bathroom. As stool remains in the colon, the colon will absorb water out of the stool, making it hard and dry. This hard stool is even more difficult or painful to pass, which causes the child to continue "holding it."
  • Changes in diet, or a different diet affect bowel habits. In adults, high-fiber diets have been shown to improve bowel function. In children, however, high-fiber diets have not been proven to improve constipation. Infants and children who eat well-balanced meals typically are not constipated.
  • Breastfed infants will generally have more stools per day. Their stools vary more in frequency when compared to bottle-fed infants. For example, breastfed infants produce anywhere from 5-40 bowel movements per week; whereas formula-fed infants have 5-28 bowel movements per week. Switching the type of milk (or formula) can also cause constipation.
  • Teenagers and toddlers who eat a lot of sugar and desserts are prone to difficult passing of their stools.
  • Any intense changes in a child-such as illnesses causing fever, becoming bedridden, eating less, or dehydration may decrease the frequency of stools or may harden stools.
  • A number of medical disorders can cause chronic constipation.

    Diet/Lifestyle Suggestions

  • The fiber intake should be more of the insoluble type which is abundant in vegetables, fruit, wheat bran cereals and whole grain foods. Wheatgrass provides a rich source of fiber, which is good for the colon health and detoxification. According to the Natural Health Group, wheat grass powder contains fiber that has a mildly cleansing effect in the body. Fruity wheatgrass not only containing wheatgrass, it has a variety kind of fruit from apple, orange, kiwi, peach to strawberry.  It is highly recommanded Fruity wheatgrass as a daily serving for kids as they will  enjoy vegetables and fruits by taking good taste Fruity wheatgrass.

  • Reduce intake of animal protein, dairy products and processed foods. Avoid over-the-counter laxatives. Indulge instead, in natural laxatives that are abundant in fresh fruits and vegetables (Fruity Wheatgrass which is a combination of wheatgrass + fruit is highly recommanded ). Consult your doctor and work with him to cut back on drugs that may contribute to constipation.

  • Caution: A high-fiber diet may produce gas, stomach cramps and other intestinal discomforts. Drink plenty of water during this time, to help the fiber eliminate old fecal matter easier.Recommendecipe s to Relieve Constipation

THE BENEFITS OF WHEATGRASS FOR DIABETES

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder during which the body has a reduced ability (or none at all) to produce the hormone insulin or the insulin is inactivated (insulin resistance). Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas and has a key role in controlling blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes is also frequently associated with excess weight and high blood levels of fats. Wheatgrass, scientifically known as Triticum aestivum, is a herb from the wheat family. Wheatgrass is a natural source of vitamins A, C, E, K and B complex and minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, amino-acids and chlorophyll, according to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. 


Folk Medicine

Because wheatgrass is rich in healthy nutrients, this herb has been proposed for improving a variety of health conditions, from boosting immune system and antibacterial activity to colon detoxification, diabetes and cancer, Mayo Clinic says. However limited clinical studies confirmed these health benefits.


Research
Wheatgrass has a definite role in improving glucose and lipids levels and can effectively be used in the management of diabetes, suggests a research team in a study published in December 2009 issue of "Journal of Herbal Medicine and Toxicology." This study was conducted on 30 volunteers and wheatgrass was added to one meal. Glycemic index or GI is a number that measures the impact that a food has on blood glucose levels and diabetics should consume low GI foods. The researchers found that adding 15 g of wheatgrass to certain foods significantly lowered the GI of those foods and thus improving blood glucose levels. The blood levels of some fats called triglycerides were also improved in the participants who consumed wheatgrass. Larger studies are warranted to confirm these clinical findings.
Michael M. Murray, ND, author of "Beat Diabetes Naturally: The Best Foods, Herbs, Supplements, and Lifestyle Strategies to Optimize Your Diabetes Care," also suggests the consumption of wheat grass by diabetics.

Safety

Wheatgrass has an excellent safety profile and is well tolerated. Rare side effects include mild nausea and headaches. Wheatgrass may cause allergic reactions in susceptible individuals, thus you should not consume this herb if you have allergy to wheat or grass or celiac disease, warns Mayo Clinic. The safety of wheatgrass is not fully assessed during pregnancy or lactation, so it should not be consumed by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Considerations

Consult a qualified health-care provider to find out optimal dosage of daily wheat grass that may help improve your condition. Wheatgrass does not replace and should not be used to replace any medication you are currently taking.


Diabetes

Diabetes is one of the most common diseases worldwide, and it is estimated that about 346 million people suffer from this disease. (WHO, 2011).
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder during which the body has a reduced ability (or none at all) to produce the hormone insulin or the insulin is inactivated (insulin resistance).
pancreas insulin diabetesThe body insulin is needed for the blood sugar (glucose) to enter cells and provide them with nourishment. Due to the lack of insulin or insulin resistance, protein and fat metabolism is also affected.
Diabetes is not a single disease, but represents several different diseases with completely different variety of reasons, but the common feature is that blood sugar level is too high.
The combination of high blood sugar level, obesity, high cholesterol level and high blood pressure (hypertension) is called the metabolic syndrome.

Type II and type I diabetes mellitus

diabetes pancreas type 2 type 1 mellitusThe two best known and most common forms of diabetes are type 1 and type 2.
Type 1 is also known as children's and juvenile's diabetes because it usually breaks out in childhood or adolescence. The main cause of this disease is the lack or absence of insulin in the body, and it always requires lifelong insulin treatment. Some adults can have type 1 diabetes as well.
Type 2 is a form of adult-onset diabetes which is almost always present after 40 years of age. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is treated with oral medications, insulin and drugs that affect the production of so-called GLP-1, an endogenous hormone that affects, among other things, the release of insulin. Even younger people, especially those with obesity, may have type 2 diabetes.
Both diabetes types have several common features, but have also many differences. Among other things, the causes of diseases and treatment methods differ. Treatment goal for both types is to try to achieve the insulin and glucose turnover to the levels the healthy people have.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus, unlike type 1, has a relatively slow onset and the symptoms are not so pronounced.
Those patients who have type 2 diabetes can sometimes start to take insulin injections for a short time since it may take many years before you need to take insulin again. The reason is that the body still produces insulin, and the pancreatic beta cells are not destroyed as in type 1 diabetes.
Patients with type 2 diabetes have an insufficient insulin production and, above all, increased insulin resistance, which means a reduced ability of cells to utilize the produced insulin.

Symptoms of diabetes

symptoms of diabetes type 2 type 1 mellitusSome important symptoms of diabetes are as following: you start to urinate often, your thirst increases, you become tired and listless, you can develop numbness and some infections (bacteria and fungi) in the urinary tract, genitals and the skin.
The symptoms of type 2 diabetes can be quite diffuse and develop for a long time. Therefore, it is not unusual to have diabetes for some time without knowing it, and to first discover the elevated blood sugar levels when doing a health check.

Treatment of diabetes

In type 2 diabetes, the treatment typically starts with improved diet, physical activity and attempts at weight loss, since high levels of blood fats and blood pressure must be actively addressed.
However, diet and exercise therapy are not always very successful. It is difficult to change exercise habits, and it is even more difficult to make people eat differently from what they were used to eat for decades. Therefore, the pharmacological treatment of the disease becomes inevitable fairly soon.
Besides insulin, there are other pharmacological treatment options. Most of them are in tablet form: metformin, glyburide, glipizide, repaglinide, glimepiride, acarbose, pioglitazone, rosiglitazone, sitagliptin, vildagliptin and exenatide (injections).
The tablets do not contain insulin but stimulate the beta cells of the pancreas to produce more insulin and increase cells' sensitivity to insulin.
Sometimes, it is not enough to take oral pills to keep a steady blood sugar, and then you have to start making insulin injections. You can also combine insulin and tablets. Obviously, everything should be done under doctor's supervision.

insulin cells diabetes Complications

The risk of complications increases the longer you have had the disease and the worse the blood sugar is controlled.
Over time, high blood sugar damages the vessels and nerves. The damage primarily affects the eyes, heart, kidneys, joints and feet (numbness). By having as normal blood sugar as possible you can avoid or delay the dangerous consequences.
Diabetes is one of the most powerful risk factors for diseases of the heart and blood vessels, such as: heart attack, angina, cerebral infarction (stroke) and kidney damage.
Therefore, it is important for the patient to minimize such risk factors of cardiovascular disease as, smoking, high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity.

Diabetes and your sexual health

Among other problems, diabetes can cause sexual problems for men and women.
How men are affected
erectile dysfunction due to diabetes - arteries, veins, tissues damageDiabetes can damage nerves and arteries, which interfere with the blood supply needed for an efficient erection. For men who have diabetes, the probability that they experience the problem, known as Erectile Dysfunction (ED) or impotence, is three times higher compared to healthy men.
Do not panic. Erectile dysfunction is a common disorder and can be effectively treated.
Some factors that increase the risk of experiencing impotence (ED):
  1. Poor control of your blood sugar levels
  2. High Cholesterol
  3. High blood pressure
  4. Smoking
  5. Excessive alcohol intake
There are also some medicines, such as high blood pressure medicines, antidepressants and anti-ulcer medications, which can have side effects that contribute to sexual dysfunction. Stress can also affect.

Prevention and Treatment

There are several options available for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, such as oral medications (ViagraCialisLevitra), injections (Caverject), suppositories and vacuum devices. If you notice any problem with your erection that persists for more than 6 months, talk to your health care professional right away.
How women are affected
Sexual dysfunction due to diabetes can affect women too. High blood pressure, nerve damage, depression and fungal infections are quite common in women with diabetes and may contribute to sexual problems.
If you have any of the following symptoms, there is a risk that you are suffering from some form of diabetes-related sexual dysfunction:
  1. Decreased interest in sex
  2. Vaginal dryness
  3. Discomfort during intercourse

Enzyme Therapy in Sinusitis

Oral therapy with Proteolytic enzymes is used to reduce swelling, edema, inflammations, relive pain and help break up the mucus. Additionally, enzyme therapy influences the immune system by reducing cytokine overproduction.

In 9 clinical studies including 1151 patients with Sinusitis, Enzyme Therapy has proven to be beneficial alone or in combination with antibiotic.
In a retrolective study, including 797 patients, it is demonstrated that a higher number of patients treated with Enzyme therapy are without complain than when treated with Diclofenac or Ibuprofen (Conrad 2000)

The treatment of sinusitis with enzymes was first described by Sasaki 1965 and Yamasaki 1965. Calabria 1966 treated 13 patients with an enzyme-antibiotic combination (trypsin, chymotrypsin, cloranphenicol, streptomycin) and compared them with antibiotic treated patients. The authors described a lesser number of punctures necessary in the oral enzyme treated patients. When chronic sinusitis was classified in 4 different types of affection, it was found that types 1 and 2 were highly responsive to the treatment of enzymes, but in types 3 and 4 this treatment was ineffective in topical use (Ota 1966).

Saporiti 1966 published a successful therapy with alpha chymotrypsin (Chymoser) as local instillation by puncture of the maxillary sinus in patients with purulent chronic maxillary sinusitis.

Kaneko 1967 treated children with paranasal sinusitis successful with enzymes. In a study of patients with chronic sinusitis, Kagitomi 1972 published that ananase (bromelain) in combination with antibiotics was effective, whereas ananase used alone showed very little effect. In a double-blind clinical evaluation of bromelain in the treatment of acute sinusitis the author (Ryan 1967) described that mucosal inflammation was reduced in 83% of those receiving bromelain as compared to only 52% of those receiving placebo. Breathing difficulty was relieved in 78% of patients on bromelain therapy and in 68% of patients on placebo. In summary, good to excellent results were observed in approximately 87% of patients receiving bromelain compared to 68% of those on placebo. Seltzer 1967 comes to about the same results. In a double blind, placebo-controlled study, 49 patients with sinusitis received either bromelain or placebo, in addition to antibiotics. Good to excellent response was demonstrated in 80% of those receiving bromelain as compared to 50% of those on placebo. Complete relief of nasal mucosal edema and inflammation, nasal discomfort, breathing difficulties, headache and pain were evident in a higher percentage of patients on bromelain. The mean standard treatment time required for a therapeutic response was 10 days for those receiving bromelain in contrast to 16 days for those receiving placebo. S. Hine 1966 employed bromelain in treatment of non-operative cases of chronic rhino-sinusitis and described the affectivity as 64%.

Alpha-chymotrypsin was administered oral or by local instillation in patients with paranasal sinusitis. The authors (Sakakura 1966) observed effectiveness in 70% of the patients.

Keller and Maurer 1967 investigated the effect of a new enzyme preparation composed of Lysozym, Papain and Bactricin (LysopainEnzyme Therapy) as sublingual tablets. This preparation was very effective in different inflammations like Laryngitis, c, herpes zoster etc. The authors observed also a benefit in sinusitis in 6 of 11 patients.

In the same year, Taub 1967 published his results with enzyme therapy in a higher number of patients with acute or chronic sinusitis. He treated in a placebo controlled study 59 (30 / 29) patients with bromelain in conjunction with antibiotics. Symptoms and signs of nasal mucosal inflammation and edemas as well as those of breathing difficulties and nasal discharge were improved in a majority of the patients receiving the enzyme + antibiotic medication as compared to a minority of the 30 patients receiving placebo. No side effects were reported. A new enzyme preparation Sfericase is proposed 1983 by Yoshida. Sfericase, produced by a strain of Bacillus sphaericus, has been proven to be effective in some chronic inflammations, such as chronic sinusitis and difficult expectoration associated with bronchopulmonary diseases. Miyoshi 1984 published results with this preparation (orally Sfericase) on 40 patients with chronic sinusitis. After 4 weeks of treatment, a reduction of subjective symptoms for postnasal rhinorrhea of 81.6%, 66.7% for rhinorrhea, and 46.6% for nasal obstruction was observed. However, with respect to objective symptoms, the efficacy rate was 28.9% for redness and 30.8% for swelling of the nasal mucosa, with a somewhat lower rate than that obtained for subjective symptoms. According to the patients’ and physicians’ global assessments, Sfericase was effective in 65 and 57.5% of the cases. None of the patients showed undesirable reactions to sfericase.

Serratopeptidase, a proteolytic enzyme was investigated for the influence on the elasticity and viscosity of the nasal mucus in adult patients with chronic sinusitis. After 4 weeks treatment Serratopeptidase reduced the viscosity but not the elasticity of the nasal mucus. These findings are discussed in relation to mucociliary clearance (Majima 1988).

Wohlrab 1993 published the results from a prospective, randomized, double blind study with 40 patients suffering of sinusitis acuta. The patients were treated with a combination of different enzymes or Diclofenac. After 2 weeks there was no difference in sum-score as well as single score (headache, toothache and edema). But after 2 weeks, the side effects of Diclofenac therapy increase, whereas the side effects of Enzyme Therapy were negligible. The numbers of recidivist was smaller in the enzyme treated group.

Meletis 2000 as well as Maurer 2001 included in their publications the beneficial effect of bromelain for the treatment of sinusitis.

Summarizing, in 11 clinical studies (one of them is retrolective) including 1161 patients it is demonstrated that Enzyme therapy alone (early stages) or in combination with antibiotics (later stages) reduce healing time for more that 20%, reduce recidivists and has practically no side effect.
