Auspicious days to start work in the Year of the Dragon 2012

In less than a week, the Chinese community around the world will be celebrating the Spring Festival or more commonly-known here in Malaysia as the Chinese New Year.

The Chinese New Year festival begins on January 23 and lasts for fifteen days, the last day of which ends in yet another celebration. This celebration within a celebration is Chap Goh Meh, literally meaning the Fifteenth Night in the Hokkien/Teochew dialect.

This fifteenth day celebration is also referred to as the Lantern Festival which is also sometimes known as the Chinese Valentine's Day. In the old days, unmarried girls used to toss mandarin oranges into a body of water, a lake or a river, with the hope of getting a good husband. Here in Malaysia, this tradition is still being practised at a lake in Petaling Jaya, though as part of an organized fun activity to round off the Chinese New Year.

Everyone desires for good fortune flowing from start to end of every new year. Some people are proactively adhering to starting their first day of work at a designated auspicious day after the Chinese New Year celebration. Like in past years, this Year of the Dragon has days that are good and bad to start work for every animal sign. Tradition dictates that one can increase one's chances of a better year ahead by picking a good day to start work. You can find out here the auspicious days to start work. If you need help with finding out the animal sign you were born in, Wikipedia can help.

Discount supplements at

Two months ago, I attended a health talk in which a medical doctor and a nutritionist were invited. The key points of the presentation were on maintaining good health through proper diet and nutrition - basically eating right, having enough rest and to get medical help whenever needed. Supplements were also included in the talk including usana vitamins and the range from Thorne Research.

The other day before this talk, a co-worker asked me whether I have heard of usana vitamins. At that time, I had no idea what she was talking about but after the health talk, I have enough information should she ask again. How much do you know about usana vitamins?

USANA Health Sciences, Inc., is a NYSE Utah-based multilevel marketing company that produces nutritional supplements, weight management and personal care products, most of which are manufactured at the company's Utah facility at West Valley City. The products are sold in sixteen international markets via a network of independent distributors. USANA is the 24th largest direct selling company in the world according to Wikipedia.

The usana supplements range includes Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B-12 and Vitamin D. Other supplements include Histame, Omega 3, MultiVits, B Complex, and many more.

Why do we need supplements? Supplements can help us get the vitamins and minerals that may be lacking in our daily diet. Our body requires a healthy diet but unknown to us, what we eat may not be enough to provide the vitamins and minerals our body needs. That is where supplements come in.

Technology has made shopping online such a convenience. We can now shop without leaving our front door, even for food supplements. One site I recently came across with a wide selection of supplements is Take a look at their site. You would be spoilt for choice at the range of products they carry. One such that caught my eye is the range from Thorne Research.

If you are looking for Vitamins, Thorne Research has them too. One among the wide selection is Vitamin A Vegetarian capsules. Other supplements available include Thorne Research, B-Complex #1 60 Capsules, Thorne Research, Calcium-Magnesium Citrate 90 capsules, Thorne Research, Iodine; Tyrosine 60 capsules, Thorne Research, Potassium Citrate 90 capsules and many others. They are all selling at a great discount on

Did you know that calcium is necessary for healthy bones and teeth? 99% of the calcium found in our body is in the bones. When the body is not receiving enough calcium from external sources, i.e., our food supply, the body will respond by pulling the calcium from our bones. When this happens, the bones will weaken resulting in arthritis and osteoporosis. More complications will follow when this condition is allowed to continue. Calcium supplements are ideal for increasing calcium levels in the body to protect the calcium in the bones and teeth.

I understand that for digestive health, undecyn, a combination of calcium undecylenate, HCl and bentonite clay is recommended. This important supplement helps the body absorb nutrients even as waste is properly eliminated. Undecyn can help keep your intestines in good health and working the way they should.

Whatever supplements you require, it would be wise to consult your doctor for advice before you go out and buy something that may not be suitable for your body. And for savings, buying at Healthdesigns will save you a substantial 30-65% on supplements including calcium supplements, herbal and mineral supplements.

Improve your health with an alkaline water ionization system

Malaysia has two monsoon seasons in a year and when the monsoon strikes, heavy downpour sometimes causes floods as what is currently happening in the Klang district in Selangor, near Kuala Lumpur. River banks bursting has caused much hardship for homes and disruption to business. In rural areas, the drinking water system will be badly affected.

Water is a resource we all take for granted. So long as the water is clean to use and drink, we are happy. What we may not know is that quality of water makes a lot of difference to our body cells, in turn, our body. Anyone who keeps fish for pets would understand that fish is sensitive to water cleanliness and water quality. Even if you use the best water filter, if the pH is not right, the fishes will die.

Likewise for us, our cells need clean and refreshed water to keep us healthy and free from illness. As a result of our lifestyle and food choices, our body pH level can go off-balanced making our body acidic. A body system that is too acidic can give rise to many ailments including cancer, osteoporosis, failing organs, allergies and so on.

How do we maintain the right pH for our body or the right balance of alkaline? The easiest way is to tackle the water that goes into our system. This can be achieved with a water filtration system, i.e., an alkaline water ionization system such as those from Alkaline Water Plus.

Alkaline Water Plus carries a range of top quality, most effective alkaline water machines in their alkaline water ionization systems. We know the health benefits of alkaline ionized water which include the antioxidant effect which helps to keep our cells and blood vessels healthy. Water ionization causes the skin and organs to have a better chance of maintaining a youthful appearance and functionality. It has been proven that cancer cells do not thrive in alkaline conditions and infections and viruses are far less likely to get a foothold in someone who drinks plenty of alkaline ionized water. Bottomline, a water ionizer is desirable for health, so no matter which water ionization system you buy or what source water problems you have you can still get the best water filter for your needs.

Why buy from Alkaline Water Plus? Like mentioned earlier, Alkaline Water Plus stocks the best brands, top-of-the-range alkaline ionizer machines in the industry. Some of them have lifetime warranty for parts and labor. Tyent is one such brand that offers that attractive and convenient warranty.

Other alkaline ionizer machines in the Alkaline Water Plus alkaline water ionization systems include the range of Jupiter Water Ionizers, Samsung Water Ionizers, Enagic Kangen Water Ionizers, Tyent ionizers (as mentioned earlier) and other top brands.

You not only only get the best selection of alkaline water ionizers on the market, Alkaline Water Plus gives customers the best possible care and service. They open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Being a family-owned and family-run business, they collectively have more experience with ionized water than the other ionized water dealers.

Their 60-day customer satisfaction guarantee is hard to beat. Should you wish to return your purchased ionizer unit during the 60-day trial period, no restocking fee will be charged unlike most other dealers. Alkaline Water Plus offers a true free trial period for your water ionization system [no re-stocking fee] should the water ionizer unit not meet with your satisfaction.
