“We should not treat our body like a machine with parts that can be easily discarded or replaced...
We shall respect and assist the healing power within to bring the body back to its initial homeostatic balance...
External and invasive means should be kept to the minimum.”

He is currently appointed as Nutrion Consultant of 365 Cancer Prevention Society, giving health and dietary advice to cancer survivors.
Some time from mid 2010 to early 2012, he was writing a "Live Food" column with The Health Weekly published by the Mediacorp. You can sample some of the writings at his blog: www.liuxinyu.wordpress.com (in Chinese). Edwin plans to compile the writings into a English health book.
As a yoga instructor and lifestyle coach, he is teaching in the Ananda Marga Yoga Centre, Singapore for more than six years and helped numerous students and people to change their diet and lifestyle with an aim for them to lead healthier and more abundant lives.
Edwin believes that we should not treat our body like a machine with parts that are taken for granted: That can be easily discarded or replaced. We shall respect and assist the healing power within to bring the body back to its homeostatic balance. In other words, Edwin believes in using natural means, like changing the diet, eating habit, foods and lifestyle to assist the body to achieve its optimal health. External and invasive means should be kept to the minimum.
Edwin advocates periodical fasting and detoxification as a way to keep the toxicity in our body at a manageable level. Edwin fasts regularly, about seven days every six months to give the body a break for self cleansing and renewal. He coaches clients to fast for as long as 42 days to strengthen the body’s immune system and resistance to chronic and serious conditions.
During the journey of writing his book on health, and having toured Taiwan for the launching of his book there in 2003, he discovered that even with the best food and good eating and sleeping habits, the body still needs exercises to stay healthy. This underlay his initial impulse to be a Yoga instructor. Later, he also discovered that the root cause of many diseases (especially the chronic and serious ones) is not on the physical level, but rather, could be in the much more complex and deeper mental dimension. His yoga practice originates from Ananda Marga, a global spiritual and social service organization that has a presence in more than 200 countries. The teaching is called Rajadhiraja yoga.
Rajadhiraja yoga is a more extensive and comprehensive form of Ashtanga Yoga. It is an all-round systematic and scientific process for the development of the body, of the mind, and of the soul, leading to the total experience of the Infinite – what in yoga is called "self-realization."
Edwin employs the techniques (breath control, stretching, postures, deep relaxation, emotional release, meditation) from this yoga, together with dietary changes and supplementation to assist the body to regain its balance soonest.
He operates an organic shop Nutrimax Organic, to showcase his belief in whole and organic food, herbs and nutriceutical supplements as a platform to fulfill his lifelong mission of helping people to stay healthy longer and bring them to realize that man and the universe are one.
