Dear Dr,

I have a daughter aged 13 years now in Form 1. Last year in November she complain of stomache and I thought its a menses (for the first time) and there a brownish colour comes out last for 4 days only. Until today she have no menstrual period. My question is, is it normal at her age to experience such problem? Or do I have to bring her to see doctor? For me I have menses when I reached 16 years old and my older daughter have m/period when she was in Primary 5. Please advise me

Chinese physician answer:

Good day.
According to your description, your daughter may be having her first menses in November last year. Generally, a girl can begin menstruating earlier if their mother have menstruation at an early age because it can be affected by genetic factor.

A girl will face instability, irregular and low volume of menstrual blood when they have their menstruation in first 1 to 2 years due to the inadaptation of her body system and ovary. Hence, I suggest you to observe your daughter situation for another few months before you go for check-up.

Jika bahan buangan anak anda masih mengandungi darah, anda perlu membawa dia berjumpa dengan doktor dan menjalani ujian makmal terhadap bahan buangan supaya punca tersebut boleh dikenalpasti.

My daughter is 17 years old now, her high only 149cm weight 50kg and didn’t increase since age 15 years old after she had a very bad cough for 3 years. Is they any medicine to improve her high and she also has sweat palm. Please advise. TQ

Chinese physician asnwer:

Your daughter is now in the growth stage. As long as she exercise more like jogging, swimming, skipping rope and playing basket ball & take foods which rich in calcium and protein, such as milk, dairy products, eggs, fish, seafood, legume, pumpkin and so on, it can helps to increase her height.

It is important to have a balance and variety diet and adequate sleep. Besides that, please note that the sugar contents in soft drinks is very high, it will block the absorption of calcium by her body & too much intake of salt also will affect her to grow taller.

You can provide her with Hai-O Brand Cordyceps capsule (海鸥冬虫夏草丸), it can helps her.

Hi Doctor,

My 3 year old son is having cough with lots of phlegm, went to the clinic but the western medicine doesn’t seem to get rid of the phlegm. I heard that bird nest is very good for the lung, so my question is, nutrition wise, is there a difference between the readily drink bird nest and cooking the bird nest at home? Which type is better for children?

Chinese physician answer:

Dear Yaroni,

1.Instant Bird’s nest or dry bird’s nest, both have different grade and we can not decide which one is better. Is the preparation that you can make to your convenience.

2.Your son is coughing with lots of phlegm, if his condition persists for a long period and is called the Hot Phlegm Cough, where the accumulated phlegm becomes thick and sticky and quite difficult to expectorate. He should take herbs like bird’s nest that helps moisten the lungs.

3.If frequent coughing with expectoration of copious amounts of clear or sticky white phlegm that is typically more plentiful in the morning or after meals is called Cold Phlegm Cough. You should give your son consume Cordyceps capsule.

Hi, I’ve a son going to 2 years old next month. He’s easily get flu, sneezing and cough and sometimes starts with fever first after his 6months old. This happens almost once in a month or two months, quite fix frequency.

I’m always trying his clean because doctor always said he has viral infection. But yet, it still falls sick after 2 months. I’m thinking of giving him cordyceps, may I have your advice if this is suitable for his age? He’s coughing and running nose, can he takes now?

He always has his excrement everyday because he eats a lot of fruits. As to water consumption, I think he might not have enough especially weekends.

Dear Dr,

My son is now 5 yrs old but his body weight is still at around 15-16kg and his size seems to be smaller than the kids around his age. Please advise on what supplement to be given to him. Thanks!!

Chinese physician answer:

The most important thing of eating for a child is balanced diet, do not choose food and need to eat vegetables, meat and fish etc.

In the same time, please avoid them from the fast food and cold drinks.

As long as he having a balanced diet and good in health, the body size doesn’t matter.

You can give him to take spirulina (morning and noon each time) and take Natural Nutriments Meal ( Once a day, every time a spoon) as a supplementary food.
