Dr. Thienna Ho was born in Saigon, Vietnam, in April of 1968, simply three months after Viet Cong Forces attacked that metropolis through the notorious Tet Offensive. Eleven years later, her household fled communist Vietnam in a 50-foot wood boat carrying 285 passengers. Throughout their harrowing ocean voyage to Indonesia, this vessel was attacked 5 occasions by pirates. Lower than a yr later, Dr. Thienna’s household immigrated to america and settled in San Francisco. She went on to earn a variety of educational levels, together with a BA in Economics, a BS in Microbiology, a Graduate Certificates in Genetic Engineering, an MA in Enterprise Administration, and a Ph.D. in Scientific Vitamin. She additionally has carried out important further research within the fields of chemistry, biology, and molecular biology.
Dr. Thienna is the founding father of THIENNA, INC. She is the World Main Authority on Human Pores and skin Coloration. After seven years of impartial scientific analysis, Dr. Thienna solved some of the enduring mysteries on earth that had intrigued scientists for centuries-the causes for the variation in human pores and skin colour! She is right here to speak about that work and her new e book “Unlocking the Thriller of Pores and skin Coloration.”
Tyler: Welcome, Thienna. I’ve to confess I am very curious to speak to you since you declare in your e book that folks have the flexibility to alter or management the colour of their pores and skin. To start, will you inform us the way you first found this risk?
Thienna: Thanks for having me right here at present. It’s a deal with. Tyler, this query is a really emotional one for me to reply as my mom simply handed away final yr and I would like you and everybody to know the way a lot I like her no matter what I’m about to say. I have to admit I’m very embarrassed to say this, however I used to be envious of my mom and siblings for having been born with lovely gentle complexions, and I used to be the one little one born with darkish pores and skin within the household. Since I used to be about 4 years outdated, I already knew that neighbors and associates all the time praised them for his or her lovely truthful pores and skin however not mine. I realized at an early age from my household that my darkish pores and skin regarded “soiled and unclean”-because my pores and skin tone was so uneven that I counted a minimum of seven distinct shades and the pores and skin on my elbows, knees, toes, and ankles was embarrassingly alligator-like, tough, thick and darkish ashen grey in colour. I really hated my pores and skin. Each time, I checked out my mom, I longed to have her lovely truthful pores and skin.
Throughout my grownup years right here within the U.S., I attempted each pores and skin product beneath the solar to lighten and even out my whole physique complexion, however these merchandise solely darkened my pores and skin colour much more! Once I was finding out microbiology at San Francisco State College as an undergraduate pupil and genetic engineering as a graduate pupil, I used to be disillusioned to find that scientific analysis had not reached the stage that may assist me to change my pores and skin colour. I used to be so annoyed that I made it my mission to be taught the whole lot I might concerning the science of the human pores and skin in order that I might remedy my very own pores and skin issues and finally assist others who had the identical issues that I did and this was how I solved the thriller of human pores and skin colour.
Many individuals are skeptical that I used to be born darkish. I have to say I needed to have an issue to resolve an issue and to passionately see the world the way in which I see. Folks stated, “Vietnamese persons are not darkish” and if I had been darkish it was as a result of I have to be hanging out within the solar! And after I moved right here, the climate is colder so I might naturally get lighter or get again to my pure colour. Effectively, this didn’t apply to my case. See the pictures in my e book and on my web site http://thienna.com/thiennaphotos.html of after I was 12 years outdated and a photograph taken with my brother after I was 18 years outdated. There was not a lot of a distinction in my pores and skin colour after six years of residing within the U.S. and I didn’t expose myself to the solar. Even after I was 30 years outdated, my pores and skin colour was the identical from avoiding the solar.
In my e book, I’ll show to you that genetic heritage, photo voltaic radiation, and the way shut you reside to the equator, don’t have as essential an affect on the event of pores and skin colour as we beforehand believed. You’ll be taught that not all individuals native to the equator are jet black and never all individuals native to the Polar Areas are precisely white. Thus, residing beneath a sun-deprived surroundings won’t assure the event of sunshine pores and skin. You possibly can cowl your physique up all you need and keep away from the solar; you’ll nonetheless be darkish until my methodology!
Tyler: And what’s the secret, Thienna? How does an individual change his or her pores and skin colour?
Thienna: One of the essential elements within the willpower of pores and skin colour and one that’s generally neglected is the quantity of sulfur in your pores and skin. When pores and skin of any colour has much less sulfur accessible for its use, it develops a darker shade. When pores and skin of any colour has plentiful provides of sulfur accessible for its use, it develops a lighter shade. Thus, by altering the quantity of sulfur within the pigment-producing layer of your pores and skin, you possibly can change your pores and skin colour!
What I have to level out right here is we want sulfur to outlive. Sulfur is a pure mineral that’s as elementary to life as water and salt are. It’s the eighth most plentiful chemical component in all life varieties and the third most plentiful mineral in your physique. You can not dwell with out it. Sulfur is present in each cell in your physique. Your physique wants sulfur to create pores and skin, hair, nails, muscle tissues, bones, and tooth. With out sulfur, your physique can’t regulate its blood sugar or transmit messages from one nerve cell to a different. Your physique additionally requires sulfur to digest, soak up fats, and to excrete ldl cholesterol. Due to this fact, elements in your way of life and food regimen do have an effect on the quantity of sulfur that your physique makes use of.
In my e book, I educate individuals learn how to enrich their food regimen with sulfur-rich meals and learn how to undertake conduct patterns that can keep excessive sulfur ranges within the physique so as to lighten one’s pores and skin colour or to keep up a flawless complexion.
Tyler: Thienna, I admit I’ve by no means heard sulfur mentioned once we discuss minerals and nutritional vitamins and our physique’s make-up. Why have not we heard extra about sulfur previously? What’s an instance of a sulfur-rich meals?
Thienna: Sulfur isn’t extensively studied in human diet. It’s solely required by your physique to neutralize and eradicate toxins to maintain you HEALTHY! Your survival relies upon, I consider, strictly on how properly you fight poisons/toxins earlier than they injury your tissues which might doubtlessly result in continual diseases or cancers and what not. It is without doubt one of the most neglected important vitamins for our physique. Why we’ve not heard of it? Haha… That may be a nice query. Instance of a sulfur-rich meals is cabbage.
Tyler: You stated an individual’s distance from the equator does not make a distinction of their pores and skin colour. Are the diets of sure individuals, comparable to Europeans, extra stuffed with sulfur than these of individuals in Africa? Is geography in any means accountable for pores and skin colour?
Thienna: Eating regimen and way of life of the Europeans play an excellent half within the growth of their pores and skin colour however extra importantly the key is within the e book. There’s a loophole that helps them save extra sulfur for the physique.
Geography is by no means accountable for the end result of pores and skin colour. Take as an illustration, 2 inhabitants teams: one lives at 4,500 toes above sea stage and the opposite at 8,000 toes above sea stage the place each 1,000 toes, there’s a 6% enhance within the depth of UV radiation. You’ll assume that the group that lives at 8,500 toes would have darker pores and skin however this isn’t the case. As a matter of reality, the group who lives at 8,500 toes has white pores and skin and the group who lives at 4,500 toes above sea stage has brown pores and skin. I’m referring to the instances in my book-the Hotan and the Hunzakuts. These usually are not remoted incidences. There is no such thing as a lack of variation in human pores and skin colour regardless of the place you look. To sum up, so long as the sulfur consumption outweighs the toxin consumption, gentle pores and skin growth is favored regardless and visa versa.
Tyler: Thienna, how radical of a colour change is feasible? Can a South African be made to seem like somebody from Finland or vice-versa?
Thienna: From my very own analysis and suggestions from individuals who have been practising my Pure Fairskin Methodology for the previous 2 years, individuals bought many shades lighter, like myself. For instance, they’ll go from a brown to a lightweight brown, a darkish olive to a lightweight olive and lightweight olive to the sunshine vary in a interval of 12 to 18 months. As for me, I’ve been practising my methodology for 7 years; I used to be capable of go from a darkish olive to the sunshine vary. As of at present, I can’t say that my Pure Methodology could make a South African to seem like somebody from Finland or vice-versa as a result of persons are nonetheless testing the tactic and solely time will inform.
Tyler: What kind of proof is there that this transformation is feasible?
Thienna: There are a lot of intriguing scientific evidences in my e book, which present you that pores and skin colour isn’t mounted and the pores and skin lightening course of might be a really current phenomenon (current would imply just a few thousand years). Take as an illustration, current genetic analysis displaying that the ancestors of recent Germanic individuals didn’t have gentle pores and skin. Visible proof left by artists 10,000 years in the past from caves in France present males with darkish brown pores and skin hunted gentle brown deers. Different fascinating proof might be seen in current analysis of quick lived creatures! Imagine it or not, analysis confirmed that even a single nutrient can have an effect on the colour growth of the furs or coats of animals! You must wait and skim my Nature’s Proof from my e book. It can knock your sock off!
I’m additionally a proof proper right here and individuals who have used my methodology can testify to this too. And whether or not you could have used my methodology or not, you will have unknowingly directed the event of your individual pores and skin colour to a sure diploma! Some individuals do get lighter with age and a few individuals get darker with age.
Tyler: You declare to have lightened your individual pores and skin. Will you inform us a little bit bit about this transformation and the way a lot of a change you really made?
Thienna: Effectively, individuals typically thought that I used to be Cambodian however now they suppose that I’m Japanese. It’s positively a visual change! I do apologize if I offended anybody with labels. I have to say pores and skin colour is without doubt one of the hardest and most sensitive topics to speak about and I’m all the time within the line of fireplace. I hope individuals will perceive the place I got here from, why I did it, and never be judging me earlier than they learn my e book. I’m glad I used to be born into this excellent scenario which has propelled me to resolve some of the puzzling scientific mysteries on earth.
Tyler: What are the commonest the reason why individuals use this transformation of pores and skin colour?
Thienna: For esthetic causes and I’ll go away it at that. It’s the similar like somebody likes to have a tan.
Tyler: Thienna, with out which means to offend anybody, could I ask if individuals have reacted to your work as having some kind of racist agenda?
Thienna: Completely! They suppose my work is evil. As evil as the idea of evolution! As , science has no ethical judgement. If we stray from logic, we can’t remedy something.
Tyler: That is an ideal response, Thienna. In fact, we’ve heard of white males who gown as black males to see if they’re handled otherwise. In your individual experiences, have individuals handled you otherwise than they used to due to your lighter pores and skin? Might I ask why you suppose your loved ones even made your pores and skin colour a problem?
Thienna: Tyler, it is a very attention-grabbing query certainly. To be sincere, in my very own experiences, I by no means had any issues by any means with how individuals handled me after I had a darkish complexion. Folks genuinely love me and I can really feel their love and kindness. Nevertheless, it’s unusual sufficient to say, however many ladies simply don’t like me when I’m lighter. I’m positive it’s nothing new whether or not I’m darkish or gentle, there’s a battle amongst ladies since eons which I can’t go into. As for males of colour, I can’t touch upon this as I can solely pay attention, be taught, and supply options that may assist us all.
Once more, I like my mother higher than the ocean, the sky, and the celebrities altogether and I might go to the ends of the earth for her in life and in loss of life. When she left me, she took my coronary heart and my soul. My mother is my the whole lot however she isn’t with out flaws. As to my darkish pores and skin colour, I really consider it was not intentional and never directed towards me in any respect. However in case you are rising up listening to how darkish pores and skin is soiled, finally, you might be soiled as properly. That’s as a lot as I wish to share for now. Possibly in the future I’ll inform my story. I have to say I’m happy with myself. With struggles come rewards. I might not change something and I haven’t got any regrets. Though I do maintain grudges via eternity. Anyway, that is the spice of life. I dwell, be taught and see life with all its magnificence and its ugliness. That is what makes life the extra attention-grabbing and exquisite.
Tyler: What strategies can be utilized for people who find themselves ageing, involved with such indicators of outdated age as liver spots?
Thienna: They’ll apply my Pure Fairskin Methodology and their liver spots will naturally lighten. My Pure Fairskin Methodology makes use of food regimen and way of life alone with out using poisonous chemical compounds, medication, or steroids to undo any pores and skin issues. Some could say…properly, I don’t wish to get lighter than I already am. I wish to emphasize that you just want sulfur to maintain your pores and skin clear and vibrant. To have a therapeutic pores and skin lightening impact, you want so much and I imply much more sulfur in your food regimen. In a nutshell, when you’ve got an ideal surplus of sulfur within the physique after the physique makes use of the sulfur for all the required organic processes, the sulfur can then be allotted to your pores and skin. Pores and skin lightening is a aspect impact of a excessive sulfur consumption. That is why you possibly can management your individual pores and skin colour growth relying on how a lot sulfur you give your physique and the way a lot you save to be used by your pores and skin. If you do not need your pores and skin to lighten, don’t eat an excessive amount of sulfur! However eat sufficient to maintain your pores and skin good and clear into your outdated age!
Tyler: What about individuals who have suffered from critical pores and skin broken from solar publicity through the years. Is there hope for them?
Thienna: Broken pores and skin, both from poisonous chemical compounds, poisons generated from the physique or sun-damaged pores and skin, may be very troublesome to right. Nevertheless, individuals can use my methodology to undo the injury to their pores and skin to a big diploma and restore its youthful vibrancy. Utilizing poisonous chemical compounds to right the broken pores and skin could make the scenario worsen in lots of instances. Chemical peels and different strategies comparable to microdermabrasion could assist right the broken pores and skin to some extent however individuals nonetheless want to alter from the within out so the underlying issues won’t floor once more.
Keep in mind, what you place in your physique, in your physique, or what impacts your physique out of your surroundings will have an effect on the mechanism that controls your pores and skin well being and its colour. It doesn’t matter the place the supply comes from; ultimately, toxin is toxin and the physique will use sulfur to clear toxins from the physique, leaving much less sulfur for the pores and skin which in flip impacts your pores and skin well being.
Tyler: Having a tan and utilizing tanning salons has been an enormous fad in america lately, but we’re continually warned about pores and skin most cancers. Is there one other solution to tan the pores and skin naturally?
Thienna: Sure. There’s a chapter in my e book about learn how to use food regimen to tan your pores and skin naturally. There is no such thing as a want to show your pores and skin to the damaging UV rays! Indigenous individuals of the world are all the time darker than their fashionable counterparts within the developed world. You’ll have to learn the e book to see what they do to attain their darkish complexions and keep their darkish complexion for hundreds of years even when they dwell in solar disadvantaged surroundings!
Tyler: In referring to indigenous individuals, did you discover in your analysis that any earlier cultures had the data you could have found-that some historical tradition maybe had labored out the key of pores and skin colour?
Thienna: Positively historical cultures do have the knowledge and the data as to learn how to preserve their pores and skin colour gentle however they have no idea why scientifically. For example, to make the pores and skin lighter, historical Egyptian ladies bathed themselves in milk. The Tibetans would keep away from consuming butter, the South Indians would keep away from ingesting black tea, for the Chinese language, do not eat an excessive amount of soy sauce if you don’t need pores and skin of the identical colour, and so forth…
On this e book, I present you the science behind “the how.” Any questions that you just had been curious earlier than are all on this e book. Even when the solutions usually are not written on this e book, the e book will communicate for itself effortlessly.
I’ve to level out that sulfur has been used for the reason that historical occasions to deal with pores and skin illnesses. What I discovered that was really attention-grabbing to me was how sulfur is portrayed in Historic Christianity. Christianity conceptualized sulfur because the gas that produces the hearth of hell and within the New Testomony, Hell is named the fiery lake of burning sulfur. Sulfur was identified within the historical time as a substance that cleanses air pollution and purifies the sin.
Tyler: Thienna, you additionally remark that the poorest international locations are likely to have the darkest skinned individuals. Why is that this?
Thienna: Your physique’s toxin-clearing mechanisms vastly depend upon sulfur… Which means no matter you place in your physique, on the molecular stage, it should have an effect on your sulfur standing. Adjustments in your pores and skin colour are the end result from modifications in your surroundings, food regimen, conduct, way of life, tradition, custom, cooking strategies and emotional and psychological elements comparable to stress.
I found that, the whole lot else being equal, a inhabitants group uncovered to comparatively low ranges of poisons over an extended time period could have a lighter pores and skin colour than a comparable group uncovered to excessive ranges of poisons over the identical interval. Toxins rob the physique of sulfur, which leaves much less sulfur for the pores and skin.
That is why pores and skin colour isn’t uniform inside a inhabitants group both. That is troublesome for me to say however the rich, excessive standing individuals typically have a lighter complexion than the much less rich individuals even when they share the identical genetic make-up. Metropolis persons are additionally lighter than their ethnic counterparts. This isn’t simply my statement however pores and skin scientists additionally noticed this phenomenon. (I have to warn individuals about our dialogue. It might be actually disturbing?.
Tyler: You promise, Thienna, to offer us the solutions to some intriguing questions, together with why do some African-American celebrities appear to get lighter over time. I’ve to ask, what do you suppose has occurred to Michael Jackson’s pores and skin colour?
Thienna: Some African-American celebrities do get lighter over time as a result of cash and standing take a load of stress off their physique, thoughts, and soul. They eat and dwell properly and likewise do what they passionately love. Fewer toxins bombarded their our bodies. Thus, these elements naturally improve the event of lighter pores and skin colour. Once we don’t have cash, it doesn’t include simply the emotional and psychological stress of on a regular basis life however we eat low-cost and malnourished meals laden with toxins. (When you hearken to the most recent information…meals and merchandises from low-cost stores are filled with poisons!-I am not going to call names-and who’re the consumers?) Our pores and skin naturally will get darker with time and if we carry on this sample from one technology to the following, the pores and skin of inhabitants teams simply get darker and darker additional time till it reaches equilibrium. Let me clarify one thing essential right here. Most of us are taught as a proven fact that the solar is without doubt one of the main contributing elements that impacts how your ancestors and also you develop your pores and skin colour and that’s…the nearer you reside to the equator the darker your complexion and the nearer you reside to the North Pole the lighter your complexion. This isn’t so! Pores and skin colour isn’t uniform worldwide wherever you look. You possibly can take away the solar altogether and you continue to evolve to have a darkish complexion. Different elements talked about above (food regimen, way of life, conduct, tradition, and custom) can have as a lot or higher an affect on the event of pores and skin colour than the sunrays and to not point out genetics!
As for Michael, I have no idea him however I’ll say this… Michael would have naturally gotten lighter by many, many shades over time along with his cash and energy. That’s all I can touch upon about Michael.
Tyler: I’ve to confess after I first heard about your e book, I felt skeptical concerning the matter. Will you inform us a little bit bit concerning the type of analysis you place into the e book so we’re extra satisfied?
Thienna: The findings introduced in “Unlocking The Thriller of Pores and skin Coloration” are the outcomes of my in depth analysis within the fields of molecular biology, chemistry, genetics and diet in addition to my very own private observations and experiences. I utilized the strict customary of scientific methodology to resolve my pores and skin issues and my analysis is backed by over 500 respected scientific sources. The benefit of making use of the scientific methodology is that it’s unprejudiced.
