With the assistance of Dr Larry Wong and Y.M. Tengku Shella Tengku Annuar Zainal, I delivered a health talk entitled "Living Healthily Without Medicine" at Institute of Strategic and International Studies (ISIS) in the afternoon of 19 February 2010. The date was decided by Y.Bhg Dato’ Dr Mahani Zainal Abidin,Director General & CEO of ISIS, who made a special effort to attend the talk.
I wish to thank three of them for organizing the talk for the benefit of ISIS staff members. This is an encouraging sign as more heads of agencies are concerned about their staffs’ health. For your information, Mr Cheah K.H., the CEO of Malaysian Timber Council, will be organizing a health talk for the members sometime this year.
The turn-out at the talk in ISIS yesterday was encouraging even though some of the staffs were still on vacation. Among those present was Y. Bhg Tan Sri Ahmad Al Farra, a senior fellow at ISIS. He is the first Tan Sri to attend my health talk.
I understand that some of the staffs are facing health problems and such health talk was timely to provide them information on healthy eating habits.
The talk was initially prepared to be delivered in Malay but it turned out to be in bilingual, Malay and English. The power-point presentation was mainly in Malay while the oral presentation was deliberated in both Malay & English. I am quite used to speak in these two languages and also in Chinese.
A number of interesting questions were raised. Is it too late to make a “U” turn in health path to reclaim our health the natural way? How long is the detoxification process? What type of water should we consume? What do you think of RO water? Is “S” brand of food supplement good for the body? What type of oil should we use in cooking? Is the Miso mentioned in the talk the same one served in Japanese hotels and restaurants? Where can we buy natural sea salt?
Dr Larry and another colleague were kind enough to share their health information and experience. I have the feeling that if the talk can assist people to attain better health in the near future, Dr Larry will be one of them. He read my health book thoroughly and understands the message conveyed.
Once again, thanks all for attending the talk. Hopefully, this is a turning point in their life path.
