    Look healthy outside, but inner body very weak, which i dont realise, bcos i dont have mense cramp (touch wood)

    so no more cold drinks, no liang teh, no more spicy food (my life!) for now....
    As you all have been saying bah zhen soup once a week, longan red dates everyday then...

    Pinklolita, have you seen a sinseh already? Personally having LRD everyday is not for everyone. Some ladies are heaty base in traditional chinese medicine term. Having LRD regularly may cause one to fall ill. But for some, LRD is the right remedy for their cold base. So it's good to let sinseh advice....I presume you havent seen one or already have?

    For me, LRD is too much. I never really get cold hands and feet, unless it was during my MC confinement.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    dragontail - I have seen Dr Su before and she did mention that i have a cold body and told me to refrain from drinking iced water.
    in fact my hubby always say my palms are always cold and i get cold very very easily as opposed to him.
    he has a warm body and gets all sweaty very easily.

    Wah! CBD Watson's trying to ka us is it! If I see more preseed at $36 I must buy a few more boxes

    Pinklolitapop: I've not been taking logan red dates but that's how I cook it - you buy dried logan & red dates from traditional chinese medicine shops, throw into slow cooker & boil. dont't know if ladies here add rock sugar/brown sugar(the type used in Ginger tea ) but I think a bit won't hurt so that it tastes nicer ask your traditional chinese medicine about it & I believe ladies can clarify about details ie red dates dont't remove seeds (unlike in soups, sometimes seeds are removed if it's going to be too heaty for the persons taking the soup but I think we're looking for as much heat as possible lol)

    pinklolitapop, it's best if you can clarify with your sinseh. I agreed with qinnnsenne, you can get those ingredients from chinese medicine hall. Me too using slow cooker to boil about 2 liters of longan red dates tea for 3hours everyday.

    pink - it's ok if you dont have slow cooker, but do remember to cut open the red dates( just a small cut will do, dont cut half)
    put into boiling water, until you see change of colour put in rock sugar to taste, then it's done
    Dr Su just told me to put in slices of old ginger,

    dragon - I also thought I'm warm base as I'm not afraid of cold nor cold hand/feet, but she say my inner body is very weak and it doesn't show and that explains my cramp and backache

    Pinklolita, then maybe LRD is for you! Maybe try to drink alternate days first. If you think your body can take it then can make everyday.

    There is an easier (lazy ) way to making it. Get a big thermal flask and throw all ingredients in. Pour in full of boiling water. After 4hours, you can drink!

    Missy10, I see. I do get cramps but very light. I dont get backaches from af either. I did ask my sinseh if I need LRD, she said no no no.

    Pinklolitapop: boil over low heat should be OK, like Dragontail said, use thermal flask also can lol! My mom will pour boiling water over red dates or wolfberries & drink after letting it soak for a while, so I guess it's all fine. My body is warm-based, so LRD I can't take everyday, thinking to try 3x a week

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi. On lrd tea - Agree with dragontail here - it is not for everyone. For me, I had it daily for a week. When I saw dr wu she said I am too hot and going to fall sick. But I love Lrd! I dont't have a slow cooker too. I just throw everything into the pot and boil for an hour.

    Hi missy10. Take heart. you didnt test with fmu right? Try tomorrow?

    Hi tvh and faithmummy - thanks for sharing your medication with me. I realized both your gynaes didn't prescribe calcium so maybe this gynae was right. Too much calcium is no good.

    Tvh - me used preseed to make out too! I have been a bit drier too! My dear is like "so long never see make out so virgin scared ?"....

    Hahahah - so now it is proven that unity can be cheaper

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    LRD is very very heaty...even though Dr Su said my body is too liang, i find that LRD is still too strong for me...I can only drink once a week....can't drink everyday cos i noticed after drinking, my breath feels very hot...next day will have fever like symptoms...

    Dr Su also told me to eat durians....so that time almost every week I had durians....just so happens durians in season...haha

    oh have mangoes too...they are good for you

    Tricky: the only times I'll have cold hands & feet (& freezing ears) are during winter at -15C & I go without long john / thermal innerwear. On car if not cool enough I'll easily get nauseous from the heat & stuffiness. My mom always say she can feel heat radiating from me :x traditional chinese medicine say must drink more plain water (which I dont't like the taste of, bad habit to dont't drink water I know!). I know someone who is cold based but also got pregnant & gave birth after seeing traditional chinese medicine & gynae for almost 2 years.
