While “health” is merely an English word used to describe the condition of a person’s body or mind, it carries an immensely profound weight in defining the true value of life. “Health is Priceless”, said a Wiseman. The late literary giant Mr. Lin Yutang put it even more precisely: “It will be pointless to talk about out dreams in life if we have already lost out health”. This insightful statement serves to suggest that health is the very foundation on which all developments of life are build. The fact that health is precious, it reflects just how dreadful in that they are more often than not – unpredictable and usually cling to their victims tenaciously – they are difficult to prevent as much as they are difficult to cure. There is no wonder health has always been a topic that human care are most concerned about through the ages since time immemorial.
Today, at a time when human civilization has recorded a historical height and in a global village where we can practically call each other neighbors, it is be wildering to learn that as many as 2.5 billions people are still deprived of medicines and proper therapeutic services. In other words, almost half of the population of the whole world is been denied the availability of the most basic medical cares. It is even more disheartening to admit that health cannot be guaranteed even with the provision of the best of the health-care facilities. Taking for instance the No.1 killer confronting the entire human race – cancerous diseases. In addition to having pooled together the wisdom and expertise of the best brains on earth, astronomical amounts of human and financial resources have been deployed to fight cancer, but what have we achieved so far? The answer is: As good as nothing – there has not been a significant breakthrough and we are in a way as helpless as ever. Despite being a nation recognized for its advanced medical technologies, Japan for one can do nothing much but to lamely accept the hard fact that the ration between its annual overall mortality and case of death attributable to cancerous diseases has over the years risen to 3:1. Taiwan is not lagging behind in this respect. With an average of 1 Taiwanese nation succumbing to cancer in every 10 minutes in 2001, the rate at which lives were claimed by the killer became 2 minutes faster compare with preceding years. As for Malaysia, cancer is listed as the second major cause of death, and for Singapore, cancer is the Top killer.
The above evidences have coldly revealed how awkward the bottleneck position modern medical science had landed into. We can thus see clearly the high price we have to pay and the difficulties involved in preserving health. In particular, patients of cancerous diseases or their family members are expected to burden hefty sums in medical expenses, not to mention the torture of ill health, emotional trauma, the lost of income, and a long list of other misfortunes waiting to befall them. (I know this, as my mum was a cancer patient. During that time, I was not involved with any health company).
(Here a testimonial story) As a physician who trained at the Yale University School of Medicine and is a former member of the Faculty of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, I have been somewhat skeptical of the health claims of many nutritional supplements.
Unlike most other physicians, however, I was always aware of the tremendous importance of nutrition as a factor in many of the most common illnesses and I pursued a Master of Public Health degree at Harvard University in order to learn more about nutrition and the role of alternative treatments in maintaining optimal health.
I have always been open to using natural non-toxic treatments so when I was contacted by my sponsor about Mangosteen and the fact that it contained xanthones I was very intrigued because I had been aware of the fact that St. John’s Wort, a popular antidepressant in Europe, contained xanthones which were in part felt to be responsible for its mood-elevating and energizing effects.
For years I suffered from a medical disorder known as allergic rhinitis, which resulted in debilitating headaches, repeat sinus infections and required treatment with antibiotics. I had consulted with several ENT and Allergy specialists and was prescribed a variety of antihistaminic agents (Allegra, Zyrtec, Claritin, Nasacort, Flonase) with only marginal relief of my symptoms. I decided to try Mangosteen for my allergy symptoms after I reviewed some scientific literature and was surprised to discover robust evidence that the xanthones in garcinia mangostana L. actually inhibited histamine release and also reduced prostaglandin E-2 synthesis that is known to mediate allergic reactions in the human body.
To my utter amazement, I can bear witness to the fact that within 2 days of ingesting only one ounce of Mangosteen twice a day I had almost complete resolution of my allergic symptoms and was able to discontinue all of my antihistaminic medications. Feeling that this was “too good to be true” I then initiated my own washout protocol by stopping the Mangosteen for one day. To my astonishment, the following day I was re-introduced to my former allergy symptoms of pounding headaches, congestion, and sneezing, which again resolved after restarting the Mangosteen.
It is extremely gratifying to know that there is strong scientific proof for the health benefits I experienced with Mangosteen. The validation of this product by identifying the scientific role of xanthones allows me to refute the many skeptics who are biased against the use of all natural non-toxic treatments for medical illnesses and would rather worship at the alter of Big Pharma and buy into the medical establishment’s view that all we need are stronger medications to vanquish all the world’s diseases, notwithstanding the fact that the Institute of Medicine reports that adverse reactions to medications kill at least 108,000 people a year. Throughout my medical career I have been disheartened to observe that in the U.S. we have more medicines but less health and I am immensely grateful that there exists a natural product such as Mangosteen which is health enhancing and non-toxic.”
It is true that mangosteen is like an angel entrusted with the mission to save lives – adults, the olds, the young, and even the unborn. It does not discriminate between the blessed and the underprivileged, the rich and the poor. So long as you are willing to find out more about Mangosteen and embrace it, you will be able to experience the vibrant health and vitality achieved through its regular consumption. It is worth highlighting that while you can afford to consume Mangosteen because it has a price, you cannot afford to risk your health, as it is priceless. Let Mangosteen work for your life today, and tomorrow it will reward you with health.
