Best Ways To Ease Menopausal Symptoms for NYE

  The holiday season brings so much joy and excitement, including New Year's Eve. Unfortunately, it can be challenging to celebrate if you have menopause and are dealing with severe symptoms. Thankfully, you and anyone going through menopause can still enjoy a rockin' NYE. Most women experience menopause sometime between their late 40s and early 50s, usually lasting a few years. The symptoms can be exhausting, running the gamut from hot flashes to mood changes to night sweats to irritability. If you want to tone down the symptoms for NYE, you can try a few different things, including taking natural estrogen supplements over the counter. 1. Take Calcium and Vitamin D Supplements Menopause results in hormonal changes, and those changes can cause weakened bones.

Calcium and vitamin D have str

A quick trip down holiday memory lane

  Can you feel it? The cold breeze, holiday songs, festive decorations, and colorful lights and lanterns… it’s Christmas season, everybody! Filipinos are known to celebrate Christmas the longest – it starts with the BER months and ends in January. Along with parties and get-togethers, we also have different traditions to celebrate the yuletide season. Since I was a kid, I associated grapes and round fruits with the holiday season. My grandma used to buy a lot of grapes during the BER months and placed them on our table along with other fruits. The grapes were also hung on windows and doors to help bring in good fortune for the coming year. I remember her asking me who was eating the grapes as she noticed that they were slowly “disappearing” and I said it must have been my aunties and our cat. But… It was silly me all along, of course! My aunties ended up buying more, much to my delight.   For Christmas eve, my aunties and grandma would make their delicious fruit salad – a huge can of f

How To Help Your Family Deal With Stress Anxiety During Thanksgiving

  For some, Thanksgiving is the best holiday of the year. Extroverts who enjoy being around people often thrive during holiday parties and while shopping. Introverts may get overwhelmed with all the commotion. People with ADHD or anxiety can experience difficulty dealing with so many activities. Even when you take anxiety medication adults may still need grace and a safe place through the day. Here are some tips to help everyone in your family have fun. Communicate Openly With Each Other A little bit of talking goes a long way when dealing with stress and anxiety at the holidays. We can’t always control how the relatives will act or the details of the day, but we can talk about what we need and how we can deal with different situations. Knowing that you have each other’s backs when one of you is nervous about spending time with the family can help you manage the stress before the day. Support Each Other Emotionally Talking it out lets you support each other emotionally. Childr

  In the late 90s, three women who would later come to be known as the "Conti Sisters" — Cecille, Carole, and Angie — started a humble food business from their garage. It's hard to believe now that they used to serve neighborhood favorites such as Baked Salmon, Garlic Sotanghon, and Ensaymada in a makeshift kitchen in Paranaque 25 years ago. It turns out that their love for good food has roots that go much further back. Their father was a public lawyer who frequently invited his colleagues to their home, so the sisters watched their parents entertain family and friends by cooking for them. That's how Carole—the main foodie among the three sisters—became interested in cooking and entertaining at an early age. Angie, the youngest of three sisters, says it was her ate Carole who loved trying new food and was already planning to have a food business with her two sisters back then. Carole lived in the United States in the 1990s, during which time she sharpened her cooking
