I got an email from a friend and I would like to share it with all of you.
FYI... One real story from a friend....My husband was working in a hospital as an IT engineer, as the hospital is planning to set up a database of its patient. And he knows some of the doctors quite well. The doctors used to tell him that whenever they have a headache, they are not willing to take PANADOL (PARACETMOL). In fact,they will turn to Chinese Herbal Medicine or find other alternatives. This is because Panadol is toxic to the body, and it harms the liver. According to the doctor, Panadol will reside in the body for at least 5 years. And according to the doctor, there used to be an incident where an air stewardess consumes a lot of panadol during her menstrualas she needs to stand all the time. She's now in her early 30's, and she needs to wash her kidney (DIALYSIS) every month. As said by the doctor that whenever we have a headache, that's because it is due to the electron/Ion imbalance in the brain. As analternative solution to cope with this matter, they suggested that we buy 1 or 2 cans of isotonic drink ( eg.100PLUS), and mix it with drinking water according to a ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 (simply,it means one cup 100plus, one cup water.or 2 cups water).
Me and my husband have tried this on several occasions, and it seems to work well. Another method will be to submerge your feet in a basin of warm water so that it bring the blood pressure down from your throbbing head. As Panadol is a pain killer, the more Panadol you take, the lesser would be your threshold for pain (your endurance level for pain). We all will fall ill as we aged, for woman, we would need to go through childbirth. Imagine that we had spent our entire life popping quite a substantial amount of Panadol (Pain Killer) when you need to have a surgery or operation, you will need a much more amount of general anesthetic to numb your surgical pain than the average person who seldom or rarely takes Panadol .. If you have a very high intake of Panadol throughout your life (Migraine, Menstrual cramps) it is very likely that normal general anesthetic will have no effects on you as your body is pumpedf ull with panadol and your body is so used to pain killer that you would need a much stronger pain killer, Morphine?? Value your life, THINK b4 you easily pop that familiar pill into your mouth again.
What do you think now??? I am a person who have migraine but I never want to take Panadol when it attack me. In return, I just have a cup of warm water and take a break for a while. My aunties (in fact all my dad sisters are nurses) do not encourage us to take panadol too. Why not give it a try on 100plus the next time if you have got an headache. Is there any doctors or nurses out there to comment on this?
It's not that I am afraid of death. Everyone will have to go thru that one day, just a matter of time but love our health. Going thru dialysis is a very painful thing. I have seen people experiencing it. Very very painful. Mei Leng, if you are reading this - stop taking panadol liau har?

New kid on the blog - hey, you should give it a try on 100plus+water. 1:1 formula. Just 2 days ago, I tried and it works leh.

zewt - painkiller!!! kill the pain but later kill our life also. Give a try on the 100plus next time. See it works on you or not.

Kenny - like I say to huei, it works on me the other day when i got migraine.

Huei - better stop taking the panadol liau. My cousin is just like you. Taking panadol like taking sweets only. Next time if you have migraine, try out this method. 1 can of 100plus + 1 can of luke warm water. Mix together and drink all. After a short while it will help to lesser the pain. I had tried so I can tell you this. Remember, NO MORE PAINKILLER liau har.........
