How To Build Natural Cartilage?

I would like to share a family secret which I was earlier hesitant to reveal in my blog. Instead I have been sharing this method with only my closest friends. Yesterday, I received a text message from my delighted friend who confirmed that her 78 year old father had recovered from his years of knee and joint aches. I decided that I should not keep quiet anymore after all I learnt this secret from a close relative. It has been further confirmed by other friends that their old aunties and uncles have improvement or recovered on their knee & joint aches.

Let me share a bit of introduction to give you some confidence of my miracle source. Many years ago, I brought my late parents to visit my aunty whose father was the most famous Dr. Teh Lean Swee in Ipoh. This granduncle of mine was very well known for building the first Chinese Maternity Hospital in Ipoh and he himself was the brother-in-law of Tan Sri Runme Shaw who founded the Shaw Brothers. The road outside AEON Shopping Mall in Ipoh Gardens is also known as Jalan Dr. Teh Lean Swee. My late grandmother's younger sister was the first wife of this Shaw founder. Enough of trumpet blowing.....

We visited my aunt whom I shall call her as Madame Cheng at her bungalow home in Canning Gardens. She herself is married to a famous doctor like her father and walked around weakly with the help of a walking stick. Her knees ached badly but she refused surgery as she knew that it does not guarantee any full recovery as the operation itself could be painful and become worse, judging from other cases. About a year later, we visited her again and she gave us a big surprise. She could walk about the house very quickly like normal without a walking stick. She told us that she had recovered without any surgery and did some brisk squat-stands to show off her strong knees again. She just laughed and made us guess what she had eaten for such a fabulous recovery.

Madame Cheng just ate this preserved fruits everyday! This is really a miracle fruit
which is only grown in parts of S.E. Asia like Indonesia and Thailand for exports.
We call this palm fruits as "Attap Chee" in Hokkien dialect which is served inside
the shaved "Iced Kachang Desserts". You can easily buy these small tubs in various
brands at NSK, Aeon, Tesco, Hero Market and many others etc.
Now Madame Cheng could go for her morning walks and jogs with all
her Golden Friends in the park. They all have been feeding on this fruit too.










I can confirm that it has helped me tremendously as I had several serious accidents 
when I was very young. Besides the motorbike accident that got me wheel chair 
bound when my left knee was badly injured, I also fell off from the high rocks
of Batu Ferringhi while fishing. I fell onto the rocks below and hurt my back bones
before drowning into the sea waters.  I was groaning in pain and was paralyzed
for some minutes due to the hard impact. Fortunately my other friends fishing on
nearby rocks saw me lying motionless & half submerged in the waters. The rest 
was history and I started to have aches a year ago when the temperature was cold.
I remembered this preserved fruits and started eating them. It worked well on me
and I no longer have the bone aches. How long it will keep the pain at bay, I am
not too sure but I would eat them on weekly basis. It is very cheap and provides
the natural gel to soothe and cushion my knee joints and back bones.

    1. I think you won't need to eat this since you have strong legs to prance about in Zumba classes.

  2. Oh I see! I actually like eating this attap chee which I usually find in ice kacang. Since it is so good and good for joints, I can look for it and enjoy it as it is. Thanks for sharing this information. I never knew that attap chee can build cartilage.

    1. The tubs of attap chee are sometimes bland and sometimes mildly sweet otherwise you can wash away with water if you prefer.
      It makes sense that the naturally hard jelly fruit is like the texture of our cartilage. Hope you can share with those who need.

    2. omg! is this for real, i am gonna recommend to my parents. hope that it is not too sweet though

  3. Oh.. thanks for the recommendation, TM. I should get some for my spouse too.. as he complain sakit on his knee..
    But I never saw these tubs before on the markets listed. Which section?

    1. Also.. could you confirm the dosage intake - one tub a week at once or makan 2 biji sekali>? haha..

    2. If you go to NSK, they sell it at the "Steamboat Ingredients" shelves. Other places like Hero Market is sold at the Tofu & Coconut Nato section. My friend bought from Aeon's grocery section but I could not find it. My Penang friends bought from Tesco. Hope it will help your hubby's knees. If he recovers, ask him to climb Mount Rinjani ok... LOLOL

      As for my mum, it didn't help her at all. I realised she was suffering from serious osteoporosis where all the bones were frail, weak and ached, not just the joints. So I guess it was another story for her. Poor mum!

      I am not a doctor so I can say it varies on the dosage on each individual. I ate one tub a day (half morning and half at night) and my left knee healed by 3rd day. My friend's both feet healed by one day.

  4. Thanks for sharing this secret. I love to eat attap chee in ABC so it would be a treat for me to eat them everyday and it is a bonus that they help to build natural cartilage. Will go share this with my elderly relatives who have joint pain. Hopefully the attap chee will not go out of stock or has a huge price increased.

    1. I also think that it would be wise for healthy joint's people like you to eat occasionally, to hopefully prevent the ache from ever occurring. My Penang friend told me that some gang of old aunties once wiped clean the shelves at Tesco after he shared with them.

      As for me I would also buy a dozen each time to keep in the fridge as insurance as NSK was always "NO STOCK".

  5. Thanks for sharing TM, I wonder where I can buy these attap chee in bulk cos I have osteoarthritis

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Let me try our local Supermarkets

      Delete
    2. I am not sure whether they are sold in Singapore. Since your country sells ice kachang, then it should be on sale somewhere. Let me know whether it could cure or bring reliefs for your osteoarthritis. It must have been so painful for you.

      Delete
    3. Thanks TM, my osteoarthritis is a mild one but still it is a pain in the neck as sometimes you will feel uncomfortable with a bit of pain here and there, after taking the glucosamine supplements which the doctor gave me I feel much better, but still I will try out your method one of these days because the attap chee is tasty and delicious, can eat as a snack too

  6. Thanks for sharing! It makes sense. Will get some for my mum. She can eat as desserts. Hope her knee pain will go off gradually.

  7. Wow, thanks for sharing this wonderful tip to build natural cartilage. My sister-in-law and her aunties all suffer from knee joint problems. I will share this tip with them. P/S: You're very cheeky, you got me...I thought you were going to keep us "hanging" until I scrolled down! :D

    1. You are most welcome. I believe many people would have some knee aches as all the wear & tear of the cartilage would happen for sure. If this palm fruit does not help, then it could be other bone factors like my mum's case which was kinda beyond help.

      I know I can be cheeky in my blogs as I try to tease & cheer my readers up. Happy Weekend!

  8. good to know that. In Thailand, they're also available everywhere. They call it ลูกตาล (look tann).

    1. The Thais eat them with syrup and ice, just like that.
      I guess they still have knee aches as they didn't eat sufficiently enough. Why do you want to eat when your bones are so strong with all your daily yoga??

  9. My mom also sufferers from knee joint pain and have checked many doctors, but I am not sure this fruit is available in India… but it resembles the Palmyra fruit while is available here. This sounds really great and the squat standing exercise also seems to work for the problem. I will let my mom know this. Thanks for sharing

    1. I believe that these palm trees could be growing in abundance at the mangrove swamps in India. Please check it out and advise your mum. Kindly let me know when you have found this fruit there otherwise I can send to your mum!

      I believe this palm fruit is easily available in Philippines too. I am sure the Chinatown in any part of US would sell this. The shops would even sell durians!

  23. If you are in Penang, you can get loads of attap chee at the Chowrasta Market , at the front stalls facing the main Penang Road where they sell all kinds of sweet and sour tidbits. Very reasonable price.

    1. Thank you for the tips. I will be visiting Penang in September and hope to buy them in bulk. My friend told me that the Chowrasta Market has a wholesaler that sold a kilo for about RM40. I think it is cheap. Are you eating this too?
