After a lot of hardwork - sweating and heavy work and perhaps lack of sleep most Foochows would feel that their liver is over stressed. Their tongues become furry and white and they can taste the bitterness in their mouth. This symptom if you ask any Chinese sinseh is not too good and must be treated expediently and by some simple prescription actually.
One home cure in fact is to drink some cooling teas e.g. chrysanthemum tea or cold overnight chinese jasmine tea.
If the body continues to be weak a wise Chinese sinseh would suggest taking of fish essence.
However one of the best benefits of this fish essence in my own experience is its properties to enable faster healing of wounds (whether inflicted by accident or by an operation).
We Foochows believe in the curative properties of this type of fish. This fish is called Ikan Haruan in Malay. The live fish costs about RM24 per kg. Bigger fish cost more by the kilo. The prices of this fish vary from place to place. And some enterprising fishermen even sell ikan Haruan right in front of a hospital or clinic!!
Many women today would steam Ikan Haruan for their confinement after childbirth. Taking the essence of Ikan Haruan would replenish their energy too.
Try a little first. If it is not for you then don't buy anymore.
And for those who have been working very hard ....get some of these...or send some as gifts to those who have been working hard...Time to replenish energy.
And now I would like to send some cyber Fish Essence to all those who need it....Cheers.
