Did you know that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the world's oldest forms of medicine, with a history of more than 2,500 years?
TCM is currently practiced in more than 140 countries, and the Ministry of Health in Singapore has also acknowledged the importance of TCM. They have taken measures to ensure that TCM practitioners are of professional standards and provided extra funding to support the TCM sector.

Friends, families and even fellow doctors often ask how they should go about seeing an Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) Specialist in Singapore.
Many are not even aware that ENT as a surgical specialty even exists! Although I end up seeing them myself most of the time, they often have many questions. These include questions about the costs of seeing an ENT Specialist, or the need for a subspecialist for their condition.
As an ENT Specialist with more than 10 years of experience in this field, I hope this article will shed some light for those in search for an ENT Specialist in Singapore.

I often encounter friends and patients who tell me that they have “thyroid”, as if their thyroid gland is a disease or a problem. The fact is, everybody has a thyroid gland.
Your thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland that sits in front of the windpipe. It's function is to produce thyroid hormones that regulate your metabolism (how your body use energy).
Most people have a perfectly normal thyroid gland. You don’t have to do anything at all if your thyroid gland is healthy!
Ever experienced sleepless nights next to a loud snorer? It's time to ask your snoring partner to get some help!

Ever ended up with a sore throat after binging on deep fried food, chocolates or durian? You probably attributed this to eating too much “heaty” food.
