Wood Ear or Wood Fungus as they called it is good for cooling the blood, arrest bleeding, prevent blood coagulation after injury or giving birth. It is said to relieve hemorrhoids as well .. and relieve vaginal bleeding. Ok.. so we know all the good stuff about the Wood fungus/ear .. “mok yee” in cantonese but i want to let you all know that “mok yee” is very hard on the digestive system. Why do i say that..?? a year ago, after my major operation to remove my huge fibroids.. weighing like 3Kg (size of a new born baby) and a full hysterectomy.. I had complication after eating steamed chicken with mok yee. When i was puking for 6 hrs.. all the mok yee came out .. none digested.. if you know what i mean. I haven’t had mok yee for a year now.. and yesterday.. i had some vegetarian food.. and had mok yee again. So guess what happened..?? yes.. the mok yee doesn’t wanna digest either this time.
Just for general info.. in case .. you had a bowel obstruction .. or feel constipated all the time.. mok yee might be the cause of it. I’m gonna stop taking mok yee for now, so that I don’t get into any trouble. I thought i would share some of my personal experience with you. If anyone got tips.. or general info.. please share, share eh.
