Easy-Phamax Wheatgrass Helps You Take Control of Your Life



Someone told me that if I want to take care of my family for a long time, I should take care and love myself first. As a mom I have been juggling my schedule from household chores, taking care of my daughter, work and other things which makes me ignore the most important things in my life which is my health.

A woman’s daily modern life is stressful as it is with workload, family life, her daily commute, and managing bills. Not to mention the health concerns that often add up to the long list of things to worry about. The truth is, there are many everyday health issues that we think we can simply accept and manage, yet it’s definitely not the best way to live, being controlled by all these.

Here are some of the most common health issues most women are just used to sucking up thus preventing us from becoming our best self:

Exercising your way out of cancer risk

Image
Recently, the number of hours spent on sitting is more than the hours spent on any physical work, this seems normal but this is alarming since it may result in serious health problems.

If you are a busy bee with piles of workloads on your tabletop and have no time to do some stretching, then the more reason that you need to get off the chair and let your blood flow.

Exercising is a lot more than keeping your midsection flat or toning your muscles. The word is about being able to work on your routine and go around without having to deal without that mini- heart attack that most of us feel while climbing up three floors using the stairs.
At a bigger picture, regular exercise is a healthy dose towards keeping yourself away from the risk of dreaded diseases, including some types of cancer.

Here are some health benefits of regular exercise:

▪️Achieve the right weight. Coupled with balanced diet, regular exercising helps in controlling your weight and preventing obesity. The calories you bu…

Common Health Risks for People who works in BPO Companies

Image
I started working in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Industry way back 2007. Being a college undergraduate, I had to support my family and BPO had been my only hope. I worked as a Senior Account Representative in one of the biggest telecommunication company here in the Philippines but the income will not suffice my family’s daily needs. I must say that BPO had been a great help for me and my family.

Working in a BPO will definitely help you financially. In return, you will have a lot to sacrifice. You will have sleep deprivation since you will be working at night most of the time (graveyard shifts). You will not even notice the date, as most of the accounts you will be working for have different time zones. You will turn to foods, (comfort foods) when you are burned and stressed out. You will have less and less time to exercise. As a result, many call center employees are obese.

Tigdas/Measles: Mga Sintomas, Pagkain at Lunas

Pagkatapos ng Dengvaxia incident maraming magulang ang natakot na pabakunahan ang mga anak ng libreng bakuna na inaalok ng DOH Health Centers. Yung iba sa atin hindi na pinabakunahan ang mga anak laban sa measles, tetanus, rubella at cervical cancer
(HPV).

Nito lang week dinala namin uli si Chelsea sa Pedia nya dahil sa pabalik-balik na lagnat at ang napansin ko na rashes sa may bandang dibdib at tyan nya. Sinabi sa amin ng doctor na patuloy namin obserbahan si Chelsea dahil maaring mayroong Measles outbreak, sapagkat 3 na sa kanyang naging pasyente ng araw na iyon ay postive sa measles.

Nagdeclare ng measles outbreak ang DOH sa Zambonga City noong February 2018, 495 na kaso
sa Davao city starting from January-September 2108, at barangay sa taguig
noong March 2018.

Why Potatoes Are Good for Pregnant Moms

Image
Nutrition is very important for everyone, especially for soon-to-be moms. When I was pregnant, I was very conscious of my baby’s health and safety in my tummy. And I’m sure us parents agree that dietary and lifestyle choices have a great impact on the health of babies.



During pregnancy, you are not the only one who is eating, the baby in your tummy also eats with you. You need to consume enough vitamins and minerals to meet your daily dietary needs. And it goes without saying that you need to munch on healthy and nutritious food, not just anything you feel like eating.


When I was pregnant, I refrained from eating rice and replaced it with fruits and vegetables, eating hard boiled eggs and boiled potatoes really helped me out, too. Yes, potatoes!
My doctor told me that potatoes are rich in potassium. Would you believe it has more potassium than a banana?  Also, a medium size potato (5.2 oz) with skin on only has 110 calories. Combine that with some eggs and fruits and you got yourself…

#HealthierQC campaign aims to encourage healthier diet among youth

Image
Due to busy schedule and fast face environment sometimes we rely on ordering foods from the nearest fast food restaurant which some are really unhealthy stuff. Unhealthy habit such as eating junk food, drinking to much sodas and other salthy foods can be dangerous to our health especially to kids.



Last  Thursday, December 06, 2018 I was invited to witness the announcement of  Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista  about building a #healthierQC in a commitment to fight non-communicable diseases (NCDs), the leading cause of death in the world today.  It was held at FEU Diliman Quezon City.

This initiative is in collaboration with Partnership for Healthy Cities (PHC), a global network of cities led by Michael R. Bloomberg, a World Health Organization (WHO) Global Ambassador for NCDs and former Mayor of New York City.

As a parent, I always want to give the best for my children. Giving them the best love and proper guidance that will ensure their growth and development. As a mom I  always want to know if my  children are getting the right nutrients that their body needs to stay healthy and active.

Her pediatrician recommend to give her PediaSure Plus. Though i'm not really good with some medical terms, I really want to know more about my child nutrition needs.
