Chronic palmar dermatitis
I had been suffering from some kind of chronic ecezma on my hands and feet for many years. I went to the National Skin Centre for treatment for many years but the specialists' medication did not improve my condition. Subsequently in 2008 I was introduced to Doctor of naturopathy and Medical herbalist Sebastian Liew and he prescribed the naturopathy way of treatment for my skin problem. With prayers as well as taking Sebastian Liew's prescription , I am very grateful that today my skin is back to normal,smooth and clear
I have been suffering from indigestion disorder for many years and had consulted many doctors. Each time during medication, the symptoms disappeared and it appears again when I am off the medication, so much so that I have learnt to live with it – bloat stomach, sour hiccups etc
I came to learn about naturopathic medicine from Dr Liew. As a person who has been involved in the medical industry for more than 25 years, it was hard for me to accept naturopathy treatment. But I told myself – since I have exhausted all medical treatment; why not open my mind to accept the alternatives. Thus, I went to Sebastian Liew Centre. Since then, my condition has improved significantly and has recommended many friends to try naturopathy treatment.
The treatment includes diet, herbs to strengthen the various digestive organs and not just suppressing them. I strongly feel this is the way to go and urge people to be more open and accept alternative treatment.

I have always been aware of how our food and our environment affect our hormones and ultimately our health but it was only last Oct 2015 that I truly woke up to the very real threat our modern way of eating and living. I was playing with my 6 year 10 month daughter and suddenly I felt a hard lump under her nipples; it was noticeably bigger on the right. Almost immediately I thought of precocious puberty! I immediately went online to learn about it and wanted to find out what I was suppose to do next.
After two weeks of feeling very lost and a great deal of research online; I still did not know what to do. I was scared to bring my daughter for a check up for fear of the doctor confirming it was the start of puberty! Finally, after much prayer and thinking, I decided to visit an paediatric endocrinologist; the appointment for set for Oct 13. I had also noticed my little girl had been having some virginal discharge; that scared me even more. Finally, we consulted the doctor who sent my daughter for a bone scan to determine her age and a pelvic ultrasound to confirm that there was no activity in her ovaries. The doctor confirmed that my girl's bones were exactly her age and that all else was normal. She did not need blood test. He told us to return for a review 6 months later (April 2016).
Despite the doctor's reassurances, I was still worried about the "breast buds" and "discharge". I felt I had to be proactive and take control. We visited Dr Liew around Oct 19 and spent a lot of time discussing my girl's diet. She was eating a largely animal based diet of chicken, beef and occasionally fish. She did not eat fruit and vegetables and she would consume a glass of fresh (organic) milk with each meal and before bed. Dr Liew advised that we had to drastically change her diet to a plant-based one and to reduce the dairy products. He started her on Phytocel tea which was cleansing for her body.
Two weeks later it seemed like her lumps had reduced in size but they did not disappear. Dr Liew started her on a tincture twice a day as well as a very gentle "liver cleanse" regime. We totally cut out chicken and beef, focusing on fish and vegetables and fruit. We also totally cut out dairy milk and replaced it with rice milk. In addition to her diet, we also changed all her body soap and shampoo to organic ones, household cleaners were also all changed to organic ones. We had Phytocel tea every afternoon and evening. We were all benefiting from the new way of life.
Finally, in Dec 2015, on returning from our holiday to Japan, I discovered that the lumps had subsided considerably. We continue to eat a healthy fish and plant based diet, totally avoid chicken and soya products (except miso).
For me, this whole experience is evidence enough that our bodies, especially our children's bodies are so vulnerable to the food we feed them and the products we expose them to.
Thanks you Dr Liew for supporting us on this journey to health. We will spread the word for sure.
Earlier this year, my 2 boys age 3+ years and 19 months were infected with streptococcus pneumoniae.
Their lungs were affected and the young one had ear discharge that became a real concern for us - our paediatrician, my husband and I. The boys went through tests and treatments with strong antibiotics, etc.But signs of chronic infection persists.
My husband and I decided to try naturopathic phytomedicine with Sebastian Liew. After 2 rounds of treatments with Sebastian in a span of 2 months, my boys now have resumed their active lifestyles and good appetite.
Hence, I feel very motivated and inspired to write my note of appreciation to Sebastian for his patience and support during the treatment period. Currently, I just maintain them with remedies such as – Pelargonium, good bacteria (flora), zinc and fennel. Recently, I fell ill with symptoms of productive cough, fever and severe joint pains. I took hart tongue for my cough and was very surprised of its efficacy. My phlegm cleared up and my cough eased considerably.
The best part is I did not suffer from side effects (such as drowsiness) as with conventional medications. In any case, conventional medications do not usually work very well. I am now a supporter for Hart Tongue elixir - A Hildegard medicine.
I thought Sebastian’s phytomedicine do not come cheap. But after seeking treatment with Sebastian, I find that the cost for antibiotics are even higher.
Health is priceless. If one can afford natural healing, then optimum health can be realised through channels such as Sebastian Liew's naturopathic phytomedicine.
I am happy to have benefited from Sebastian Liew's naturopathic remedies.
Chronic Leg Ulcer
My mother was suffering from a chronic leg ulcer for more than two years. Doctors at a local hospital said that it was impossible to cure due to her age and poor vascular drainage. Dr Liew used a herbal paste for the healing of the ulcer and gave her the herb Olive leaf to prevent infection and to treat her high blood pressure. Within three months, the ulcer was healed completely
I developed a form of palmer dermatitis on both of my palms 6 months back. As usual, I went to consult a dermatologist at the National Skin Centre.
The dermatologist prescribed steroid creams and PUVA treatment for my hands but it did not seem to work and the condition actually got worsened.
My friend recommended me to see the medical herbalist Sebastian Liew for a lasting solution.
Sebastian put me on herbs to improve my liver function and the lymphatic system and was told to avoid certain foods. He also created a customised herbal wash and a herbal cream to ease dryness, heal the wounds and treat the infection.
My condition improved after 3 months with no recurrence if after I ate the “wrong” food. I am now applying the St Hildegard’s virita balm for continuous skin resilience and immunity.
