October, the month that adds another year to my life, most of my relatives are also born on this month. Every year, the calendar page is almost full on this month due to the events that I need to be reminded of, but one of the important thing that it represents is the Breast Cancer Awareness.

Breast Cancer is the 2nd cause of Death in most women.In the recent study, Philippines has the highest rate for Breast Cancer in Asian Country.
Its very alarming that 39.4 percent of the breast cancer patients were being diagnosed only at the late stages of illness.

Festival Mall annually supports the Breast cancer Awareness campaign called Pink October.They help promote  an early diagnos…

Asian Aesthetic Center: Freeze and Melt Fat Away Permanently

Image
Is it possible to freeze and melt fat away? This is one big question that we attempt to solve but first, we must understand how body fat functions in our body. Body fat as defined in many books is categorized as adipose tissue which is a normal component of the human body. Its primary purpose is to store energy in the form of fat that is then needed for metabolic functions within the body. However, having excess body fat can be physiologically harmful and at the same time can negatively affect one’s appearance. Thus the idea of the possibility to melt fat away comes to mind when all else failed. Can body fat be destroyed? Unfortunately, fat cells are indestructible since our body has a constant number of fat cells that will remain in our lifetime. However, fat cells can be reduced or shrink in size through various methods like freeze and melt fat away. You see, when people lose weight their fat cells are also reduced in size but the body will signal the need to rebuild the shrunken f…

Know The Reason Why Grayns Rice Cooker Is Perfect For Diabetics

Image
In Asian countries like the Philippines, Rice is the common staple food in the table. We usually have it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We eat rice like 2-3 cups per meal or 5 cups a day. As we all know, buffet and unlimited rice is now a big hit regardless of the age. Filipinos love Rice that's why most of us are shocked and some were enraged when a senator mentioned about restricting unlimited rice promotions from restaurants, which the said senator also clarified that unlimited rice will not be banned.


Based on the study, the person who eats more serving of white rice has a greater risk of developing a type 2 diabetes. White rice is low in fiber but ranks high in glycemic index (GI )that can cause a sudden spike in blood sugar level. The form of diabetes is linked to growing numbers of obesity.

For Asian people with type 1 and 2 diabetes eating white rice can be fatal to them that's why they refrained from eating it.
With this in mind, Grayns Philippines wanted to help …

Nutri 10 Plus, Vitamins Perfect For Child's Growing Needs

Image
Summer is already here. The temperature last week was 34°c and its getting hotter everyday. We have to open our windows to make sure that we won't get suffocated because of the heat. Summer is also the season of flu, bacteria that can cause cough and build up of phlegm. Kids should always be geared with proper protection. Their body needs protection from harmful diseases.

That's why I was so thankful that I used Nutri 10 vitamins for my Chelsea. This is the kind of vitamins that she really need. For sure most of you know that Chelsea is a picky eater. She only eat if we have Sinigang or gravy that she put in her steamed rice.



After taking Nutri 10 for almost a month now. I noticed some changes in her appetite and daily routine.  Before, Chelsea stays up until 2 am and wakes up around 11 am. Thankfully that routine changed and she also started to eat vegetables.
As a mom I'm always worried because I know that she is not getting the right nutrients that her body needs.

Perhaps you are all thinking why I have to go that far especially I'm not really familiar with the area. I traveled that far to attend Sangobion's Event to know more about there newest campaign #SulongDugong Pinoy.

Due to lack of sleep and unhealthy lifestyle I suffered from dizziness and I get tired easily.
At the event I was tested for blood count. The result is 11.4gldl
I have to take heart and be more health conscious since I'm getting older.

How To Protect Your Liver The Right Way

Image
October last year, my husband is complaining about the severe pain in his stomach, he thought he was only constipated but we're wrong. His doctor advised him to be tested. He was diagnosed with a Fatty Liver. We are still thankful that it was only in stage 1, so we can still do something to reverse it with proper diet and help.

More often than not, you think that eating healthy, exercising regularly and avoiding alcoholic drinks are enough to keep your liver protected, but no. That is not enough. When you get older, you will be exposed to complications and sometimes, the liver will be the one who will suffer when you left them unprotected. The liver regenerates and heals when it is damaged but if it was abused too much, it might catch liver diseases or worse, liver cirrhosis! Make sure you have a protection for your liver and that is in the essence of liver protecting capsules like
LiverMarin!
