    About HiGa Organic

    Inventor and manufacturer of HIGA Organic Shampoo


    Professor George Goh hopes that by making HIGA Organic Shampoo and HIGA Organic Fertiliser, it will help save and improve the environment. Being a green person, he started making use of plants waste to produce organic fertiliser.

    Organic product is free of chemical and does not burden the environment. The waste from the shampoo will not pollute the environment as well.

    In Southeast Asia, plant waste is abundant as a byproduct of plantation (oil palm, rubber, and coconut), timber and rainforest harvesting. The plant waste from these places is usually dumped or burnt and this pollutes the environment.

    The plant waste found at roadsides is also used and if they are not taken, they will be collected and later, burnt. In the process of collecting plant waste, he found many useful herbs. These herbs are important and we can maximise the use of these herbs which is useful for our body. Some of these herbs also help with improving our skin condition as well as our body internally. Some of them are also useful in preventing hair loss. Professor Goh Chiu Khek

    Plants used as medicine

    The use of plants for medicinal purposes originated in China is more than 1000 years ago. In Southeast Asia, individuals who specialise in herbal medicine are few compared to China. Some may claim that certain plants are wild grass or weed and then they are destroyed or burnt. This is a waste of many useful plants.

    Diseases

    Human diseases originate from the mouth and we know about it. If a person finds out that they have a particular disease, they will immediately take extra care of themselves, especially on what they eat. They will look for a healthier option – organic food. Long term intake of organic food will benefit people.

    Nowadays, scientists make use of chemicals to increase the quantity, not quality of food product especially in the plantation area. This happened less than 100 years ago in an attempt to increase food production. When farmers use chemicals to increase the yields of crops, we take in the chemicals too. Thus, diseases are “created” which no medicine can help as we have consumed it in a long term basis. Our antibody starts to weaken and toxins taken cannot be out of our body.

    The cost of medicine is increasing and is getting more expensive and some would say that it is better to die than to pay for those expenses. To avoid being in this situation, people turn to organic food as they are more concerned about their health. Organic food helps prevent diseases because it contains no toxins and promotes illness-fighting antibodies

    Organic food

    » Poultry (eggs), fish, vegetables and grains

    We can claim that a particular product is organic if no chemicals are used in the process. For instance organic eggs, fish, vegetables and grains that are free of chemicals.

     

    How can we produce organic food?

    » Poultry (eggs)

    The first step is to use organic grain to feed the animals. The organic seed is planted in a greenhouse to protect the plants from insects. Organic fertiliser is then used to make the plant grow better. In planting these crops, organic fertiliser is big in demand especially when producing grains.

     

    植物的医疗效用是非常广泛的尤其是在中国,人们对草药的认识已经有数千年的历史,然而在我们这个热带国家有许多看了觉得不起眼的草被遗弃埋没甚至被摧毁掉,由于这里的人们对草药的认识和了解还是很少,甚至有许多珍贵的草药人们对他都完全不懂或不认识,造成不贵的资源白白被浪费掉。

    所谓病从口入,吃下去的东西是直接影响健康的,当大家对健康越来越重视时,对吃东西也越来越讲究,也对有机产品逐渐认同它的价值,有机产品也逐渐普及化,需求量日益增加,因为的有机食物对身体健康是非常重要的,他不含化学成分及人造毒素。所以长期食用肯定对健康有帮助。

    由于化学科技日新月异而且被大量开发,对控制多数疾病,虫害短期内就能见效使人们立刻对他产生依赖。人们渐渐越来越依赖并且广泛使用化学的产品。由于化学肥料及化学药物被农民广泛使用来控制农作物的生长,以便减少虫害和疾病感染,达到高产量,然而长期大量使用化学肥料及化学农药已经使到环境和水源被严重污染。由于人们忽略了造成化学药物对疾病或虫害有效,其实化学药物也一样对人体有直接的影响。我们身为消费者也长期食用这类大量使用化学肥料及化学农药的农产品也一样深受其害,几乎天天都食用化学肥料及化学农药,使到我们身体健康每况愈下,毒素累积久久不能清除。

    今日的社会人人都为健康保健而担心,因为今日的医药费非常昂贵,有句话“能死不能病”,因此食用及使用有机产品及有机食物已经成为一个趋势,由于长期使用及食用有机产品或食物,而没有被化学农药所毒害,身体自然会更加健康病自然会减少。

    所谓有机食物就是有机家禽生畜,有机鱼类,有机菜,有机饮料,有机谷粮,有机干粮。它们在生产过程是不能使用任何化学药物的,而且必须使用有机原料来饲养如有机谷粮等等。有机谷粮必须使用有机肥料,并且种植在帐篷里以避免虫害,生产过程也不能使用任何化学产品才算有机,因此有机肥料就变成生产有机食物最重要的原料了。

    本人从事生产有机洗髪沐浴乳和有机肥料,也希望藉此对地球环保出一点力。因为有机产品不能使用化学成分,因此制造益佳生化有机肥料的过程不会产生对环境污染废料,益佳有机洗髪沐浴乳制造过程也是如此,也没有产生对环境污染废料,而且使用后所产生的污水也不会污染水源和环境。

    基于对植物的认识与爱护,于是积极从事制造有机肥料,使植物废料不至于白白被浪费掉,因为制造有机肥料会使用很多植物废料,而植物废料是制造有机肥料的主要原料,而且在我国搜集植物废料是非常容易的,因为我国拥有丰富的天然资源(热带雨林)而且种植业相当发达尤其油棕,橡胶,可可等。每当收成或翻種时都会产生大量植物残骸和果实废料,它们不是被丢弃,埋葬就是被焚烧,造成环境空气污染。因此把它们加工再循环制成有机肥料是最好不过的,这不但可以减少化学肥料使用量,即不浪费也不污染环境,非常环保。

    另一方面我也和地方政府合作搜集路边或公园被修割的花花草草,野花野草的残骸。我也将这些植物废料再循环制成有机肥料。这是非常环保的,假如这是废料被丢弃或者被焚化将会造成空气和环境污染。然而在搜集到的这些植物残骸中,我常常会发现有许多珍贵的草药参在其中,这些各类草药都有具有其医疗作用,有的适合治疗外伤,有的适合治疗外皮肤疾病,有的适合调料身体内分泌及各种疾病,甚至有的适合治疗头发脱落的草药也能够找到
