Healthy Mom Happy Family

As a mom, besides making sure my family is healthy, I also need to take care of myself. Being a mother is a 24/7 job, no rest day and vacation just over-time, lol. “Bawal ding magkasakit”  (no sick-leave either 🙁 ), so eating nutritious food and taking vitamins as supplement is a must.

Even though no matter how careful we are, environment also played a major role with our physical well-beings like the bad weather and pollution. And it’s inevitable to get ill.

It’s hard to get sick because it’s not only you who got affected but the whole household as well, that’s why I always stock medicines like paracetamol and carbocisteine in my medicine cabinet for an emergency. A cough, fever, and flu are the common illnesses that kids and adults alike caught.

Prevention is the best medicine but if not,  there are medicines to cure them, please check the products below from United Home – Unilab Company:

Moms, forget your chores for a while and rediscover your feminine power on Mother’s Day

Stress urinary incontinence is a medical condition that mothers may experience but choose not to discuss or even consult with a doctor, for fear of embarrassment or shame. It consists of a series of temporary, fast, but very palpable urinary leaks that are triggered by ordinary things like laughter, sneezing or coughing. The lady may be in the middle of a conversation with friends or having a laughing interaction with teachers at a PTA meeting, then suddenly, she gets an involuntary spasm in their muscle down under, followed by a familiar wetness that comes with a pee.  It is a very awkward and uncomfortable moment.

Stress urinary incontinence happens when the vaginal muscle becomes lax and is unable to prevent those sporadic involuntary leaks. Several factors that cause this laxity in mothers could be natural ageing, childbirth, or a very active sexual life. One or all of these factors can strain the orifice’s tightness and loosen it up.

Femilift is the cutting-edge treatment that can heal mothers of this medical condition, and restore their confidence as an attractive woman of poise and power. Dr. Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre, explains:  “Femilift applies concentrated thermal healing and micro-abalation to the vagina’s inner layers.  . A laser probe is used and releases a laser beam deep enough into the vagina’s submucosa level where new collagen is formed. This stimulates the regeneration of collagen which tightens the tissue. At the same time, it contracts the vagina’s elastin fibers.”

Results and contra-indicators

Dr. Salazar continues, “The restored female genital tissue strengthens the vaginal wall and reduces or eliminates stress urinary incontinence. It also restores vaginal laxity and enhances lubrication and the sensitivity of vaginal tissue.”

The SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre also conducts medical screening for each patient before administering or approving the treatment. Procedure cannot continue if any of the contra-indications are found like active bacterial infection, immune system deficiency diseases, pregnancy, malignancy, vaginal bleeding, photosensitivity to laser, pelvic organ prolapse, pacemakers in the body, uncontrolled diabetes, and menstruation.

Moms can experience the renewed sensitivity and tightness of their vaginal muscle after three short sessions. The treatment takes place in a quick 30 minutes and requires no downtime; the patient can go back to work immediately. It is non-invasive, and very safe, using separate individual probes for each patient.

“The one post-treatment requirement would be no sexual activity for three days after undergoing the Femilift procedure.  It’s a little sacrifice considering the benefits the patient will gain. Stress urinary incontinence can diminish if not disappear after a session,” says Dr. Salazar.  She pauses then adds with a smile, “The removal of the vaginal laxity could also rekindle the exciting sexual intimacy with their partner so the results are more than worth the wait.” That rekindling of passion in the bedroom, along with the elimination of the urinary stress incontinence, may be the best Mother’s Day’s present yet!

Reality Check – Shed off that pounds away

 

OMG it’s already a month after the holiday season officially ends and you haven’t shed off those extra pounds accumulated during those times. lol. #RealityCheck – One of the hardest things to do is to go on diet if your meaning of diet is starving yourself which is very very wrong. You just need to lessen your intakes of carbs, fats and sweets which were abundantly served at the feast table during the holiday season. Okay, easily said than done, been there and I always get sidetrack, I’m just human you know, hahaha. DISCIPLINE is really the key. 🙂

Eat more healthy food like veggies and fruits and sweat out those excess weight by simply walking, running/jogging, go up and down the stairs of your home or office (lessen the elevator rides and you’re doing your company some favor by saving on electric bills and yourself more). Do some stretching/dancing work-out at home in the tune of lively music, you can try to look at  guitarcenter.com has komplete 10 for more bubbly music accompaniment.

There’s no harm in trying and you might succeed without noticing it. 🙂

Singing is good for the health

 

Food and music go together when we celebrate birthdays and holidays at home. We rarely go out and eat in restos, most of the time we cook or order food and have them here at home where we can eat all we can and to top the occasion we have our videoke machine ready for non-stop singing, hehehe. Yes all family members are music lovers and can belt out a tune or two quite good except me, lol.. Listening to music and singing is a good way of relaxation and experts say singing is good for the health specially for the heart because:

“It’s a great way to keep in shape because you are exercising your lungs and heart. Not only that, your body produces ‘feel good‘ hormones called endorphins, which rush around your body when you sing.”

Besides singing along with a videoke machine, learning to play musical instruments like guitar to accompany you is a good way to tap your other talent, you can visit website like musiciansfriend.com to see more musical instruments of your interest.
