As a vibrant and energetic young lady, Dr. Tan’s passion for sports led her to represent her state in many athletic events. But things took a turn for the worse when, at the age of nineteen, her health started deteriorating.
After she returned to Malaysia and began her life as a teacher, wife and mother, Dr. Tan grew weaker by the day and she had no choice but to resign from the teaching profession. While her unexplainable health condition worsened she would often find herself sleeping increasingly during the day, with little to no energy during her waking hours.
A constant pillar of strength to Dr. Tan through all of this was her husband, Datuk C.K. Tan, who sought medical treatment for her all over Malaysia and Singapore, but to no avail.
“It came to a point where I was longing to be told that I had a particular disease because then my frustration and depression, caused by not knowing what was wrong with me, would end,” she said.
One day, Dr. Tan’s family met Dr. Costa Deir, a medical doctor and naturopath who was a visiting preacher at their church. They offered to house him during his visit and it was during his stay that Dr. Deir diagnosed her weakened condition as Toxaemia.
Based on Dr. Deir’s sharing and teaching, Dr. Tan immediately started to change her lifestyle and started living along the principles of ‘let food be your medicine, and medicine your food’. Within a few months changes to her physical state were apparent. Her amazing recovery became the catalyst for Dr. Tan’s intensive research into natural healing over the next few decades.
Her transformed life led to her having two more children, a Doctorate in Natural Healing, and a practice in Naturopathy. She took it upon herself to share her knowledge with others and to create a platform where the benefits of her life’s work could be made available to those who are eager to lay a firm foundation for a healthier life, a revitalised body, and a renewed mind.
