Since 1997 when I first encountered the idea of NEWSTART, it entreated me to give up all meat and dairy products. Although I had had educational background on public health, I seldom involved myself with. It was not until 2002 when I started to look into the alternate medicine, including the Chinese medicine as well as some other “bare-hand therapy” that I found fulfilling the aim of alleviating the suffering of people. In fact, I am preparing myself to change tracks so that when I retire from dentistry totally someday, I shall engage to treat people in a different way.

As I observed, many people suffer from chronic diseases, which are life-style related; as these diseases progress, other symptoms also surface. A good number of people suffer some form of sickness or aches constantly, simply because they depend on the drugs that the doctors prescribed to relieve the symptoms so they can go back to their former unhealthy way of living, just to trigger the diseases again. It became my passion to find ways to demonstrate to the public how this marvelous body that God made has some unique intelligence to discern what is good and not good to us.  Many of the unhealthy practice in our life, if corrected, can bring along health and happiness to our families and us.
