Lianhua Qingwen product

Someone said.

HSA said it is aware of claims that Lianhua Qingwen products can be used to prevent or treat Covid-19, which have been circulating on social media and in Telegram chat groups.

HSA added that some Lianhua Qingwen products are listed as Chinese proprietary medicines in Singapore for the relief of cold and flu symptoms, and their approval was based on the documented uses of the ingredients present in the products.

However, they are not approved by HSA to treat or alleviate symptoms of Covid-19.

HSA requires any product that claims to treat Covid-19 to have scientific evidence from controlled clinical studies to substantiate that such a product is safe and effective against the ailment. Covid vaccines were not fully tested and are approved on an emergency basis.

When the authorities proclaimed that unvaccinated individuals have to pay for their own treatment, doesn’t that meant that these individuals should be given the liberty to take what deems suitable.

TKL reply.

I can understand that HSA will not want to give a statement about its suitability for treating covid, without any evidence to back it up.

As the drug is safe, taken in the prescribed dosage, it is better for HSA to take a neutral stand, i.e not supportive nor discouraging, and let the individuals make their own decision on this matter.

If there is any negative side effect, the individual will probably stop taking the drug or may seek the advice of the doctor.

It may be better to have a trusted platform where patients can share their experience of patients who have taken these alternative medicines. It is better for the experience to be confirmed by a doctor, so that the findings are reliable and the trusted website is not abused for deceptive marketing.

  • Panda-grade (国宝级) medical expert in China, Professor Zhong NanShan has gone on TV to put on record that the LianHua QingWen is effective in treating mild cases of C19 infections.

    Err… HSA got Panda-grade medical experts bo? And I mean real medical experts, not those barking kinds like Kenneth dunno simi Mak or Ong simi Con.

    Can anyone provide a name in HSA or MTF that we can all go “wah, tokong!”?

  • Take nothing loh:

    Recently, there was a post by a covid+ family who complained that they received ZERO treatment for days (and was still waiting at the time of the post).

    Now we know why. This gov has no “approved” treatment for covid. So nothing can be given, not even panadol or water.

    When people die from covid, at least they will not die from treatment. We can all rest in the careful hands of this gov.

  • Harder Truths:

    Never underestimate the ability of traditional medicine to have solutions. These practices help the body overcome its own limitations. The proof is in the pudding. The Regime can and will never admit its ignorance and short-sightedness.

    Unfortunately even traditional medicine cannot help to cure the three sinful monkeys.

    Some pharmacies also carry herbal products for common cold and flu symptoms. If this product meets the health standards in China, it should be safe for use, unless HSA has evidence to show otherwise. TCM has been long used by our parents and grand-parents to treat mild symptoms like cough, cold and flu.

    HSA, another Mouthpiece of Husband(Mai Hum)and Wifey(Holee Jinx)Tag Team, has ORDERED that Lianhua Qingwen products ARE NOT APPROVED TO TREAT OR ALLEVIATE SYMPTOMS OF COVID19.

    So for MON(K)EY Sake, HSA for the BENEFIT of all SUFFERERS OF COVID19, SHOULD DISCLOSE THEIR HOLEE AND SECRET RECIPE FOR TREATING AND ALLEVIATING SYMPTOMS OF COVID19 FOR PATIENTS WHO ARE NOT HOSPITALIZED FOR REASONS DECIDED BY MOH AND INSTEAD DOING THEIR PATRIOTIC DUTY BY PARTICIPATING IN THE HOLEE HOME RECOVERY PROGRAM!

    If any of those vaccinated and UNVACCINATED folks who took the Lianhua Qingwen product which is JUST A NORMAL FLU MEDICINE, kicks the bucket or in serious condition, SURELY THE CAUSE SHOULD’NT and COULD’NT BE the Lianhua Qingwen product BUT DUE TO THE mRNA vaccines or UnderLying serious illness, dio bo?

  • Delina Arumugam:

    In the neighbourhood where I have been living, there were more than 3 Chinese medicine shops initially.

    Now, all the original ones had closed down and replaced by two other, quite different from the traditional type where tonics foods are the main merchandise and located in the mall which was erected long after the 3 original Chinese medicine shops had closed down.

    What message does this has for the people who used to patronise traditional Chinese medicine shops?

  • Trust only myself:

    What is unsaid in the public domain is that the HSA is trying to protect certain sector of the medical practitioners and leaving out TCM as claimed by them……………

    There is no harm taking TCM medicines, just don’t mention to “treat covid”…….since nobody is dying from it while some died after vaccination………

  • PAP mandate strong:

    China strong influence in Africa tio boh ?

    So why Africans or certain areas of Africa never use Lianhua Qingwen ? China never do it’s part in recommending ? Maybe Omicron wouldnt have surface at all.

    What about China’s daddy Russia? High death rate also, why China never recommend to Russia ?

    So as Myanmar , Laos, Pakistan …. ?

    Per Dr. Shankara Chetty, who treated over 7,000 Covid patients without hospitalization, oxygen supplementation and deaths, in rural S. Africa: Covid-19 has Two Phases.

    Phase 1: It is flu-like in the first seven days and he treats patients just as in flu. 80% will get well.

    Phase 2: Starts from Day 8 with onset of breathing difficulties even where patients reported being well on Day 7. About 20% of patients progress to Phase 2 which is a hypersensitive reaction to Covid.

    He treats them aggressively with corticosteriod, anti-histamine, anti-viral and anti-coagulatory drugs…All commonly used drugs. All patients recover. However, those who come in on Day 9, 10, onwards will be more severe and will take longer to recover.

    Lianhua Qingwen is exactly suitable for Phase 1 as it treats flu. Most will recover. However those with weakened immune systems may need to be hospitalized for more aggressive treatment. Key is get to the hospital on Day 8 if breathing difficulties emerge..each day delay can be fatal.

    MOH needs to talk to Dr. Chetty to understand better the pathogenesis of Covid-19.
