VitaPops – Pop Rocks Vitamin C for Children

I remember when I was a kid, I used to be sickly and a frequent visitor in the hospital. I hated drinking medicines because then, they all tasted yucky and made me vomit. A time came when I had to pretend I drank them religiously but my dad caught me hiding the meds in a secret pocket under the huge Narra wooden table.

When I became a mom, of course my fears included repeating the same situations and mistakes but luckily, medicines and supplements these days have different flavors to suit the children’s taste buds. I’m glad the pharmaceutical companies thought of this brilliant idea of making flavored syrups especially. I can’t say the same with most tablets and capsules though but happy that my teenage son can take the awful taste.

Last year, a new vitamin C product was introduced by Unilab, the biggest pharmaceutical company in the Philippines namely VitaPops.

Boost Your Immune System with Conzace!

We used to be a family who never missed a trip to the hospital once a month. But, things changed over less than a year ago. Somehow, the lifestyle change and new medicines/vitamins opened a door to healthy bodies thus less visits to the doc.

I work online, handling a few people and tons of work. I sleep barely 4 or 5 hours a day. I take a nap yeah, but you can call it a “power nap”, coz it only lasts about 15 minutes. But each time, I feel renewed energy, enough to last me a few more hours and by 8pm, my eyes feel drowsy and my head, reeling.

Hubby works in a posh hotel. He’s a sup and apart from handling his department’s staff, he juggles between 3 other tasks. He comes home tired and sometimes even falls asleep while sitting down. Need I say more?

As for the kids, they both have mild asthma. Sudden changes in weather can make them sick, as well as things that other kids usually shrug off.

So basically, sicknesses were dragging us down to the hospital bed and let’s not forget, draining our savings to a big 0.

Of course like any parent, we looked for solutions. We found some for the kids and luckily, they’re far better and honestly haven’t been sick this first half of the year. If you wanna know why, please READ MY REVIEW HERE.

Hubby and I on the other hand, is taking Conzace. We discovered this nutritional supplement late last year and since then been taking it. Believe me, we have tried many others but to no avail.

Life Changing Decisions

My life seemed to shatter into pieces when our family doctor diagnosed me with high blood pressure. I know it sounds overreacting, but knowing how people with high blood pressure live their life is definitely alarming for me. I never thought that teens my age are not exempted from this health threat. I have friends that are way older than me who are now very conscious with everything they do; even cutting back some activities we used to do just to avoid the pressure to rise. That makes me very afraid. Now, I need to constantly check my blood pressure with my newly-bought Welch Allyn sphygmomanometer to see if my blood pressure is under control. I guess I need to have that one as part of my daily routine.

Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease is Rampant!

Yesterday we were at the pedia because my teenager had a high grade fever last Thursday, and on and off on Friday. Then suddenly, red spots or rashes came out. At first, I thought it was due to the fever and he was hot as lab furnaces. Nah, just exaggerating, but he was so hot, I panicked. If you knew his condition, you’ll panic too.

Anyway, soon more rashes came out and spreading, he couldn’t swallow well (even water) plus he has sores inside his mouth. So, we decided to pay the doctor a visit. I had a hunch but would like to be sure coz I told my husband, if I am right, it’s contagious.

When we were in the doctor’s clinic, I heard the doc mentioned to a patient about HFMD or Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease and that she had seen several patients with the same disease already. So, that means, it’s spreading in the same area as mine.

Family Health and Wellness

Most of us know the saying “Health first” or “Health is Wealth”, which means that we should not sacrifice health over anything and that we cannot buy health. This goes for the entire family, from kids to adults. It’s truly hard when a family member is sick more so if the virus or bacteria spreads, affecting not just one but all.

A healthy family means a happy family, right? But sometimes, these common viruses are needed by the body, so our system can adjust and learn how to fight these bacteria, thus increasing our defense the next time it hit us.

Exercise with your iPod!

Nowadays, when you go to a gym, you won’t see any huge sound system used as music accompaniment when doing any sort of exercises. I used to go to a nearby gym and they had this boom box which played ear tearing music. That was terrible, really, and I wasn’t able to concentrate on the routines coz I kept covering my ears. It seems that the other members of the class weren’t annoyed at all, mainly coz they were young people who enjoyed loud music to the extremes.

Adult Bed Wetting Solutions

Adult bed-wetting is a common problem as you can see from all the TV ads about disposable diapers available for adults. The first thing to do when adults have a bed-wetting problem is to consult with a doctor to make sure that there is nothing medically wrong to cause this problem to develop. Bed-wetting in the adult years can be a symptom of diabetes, kidney or bladder problems or something as simple as a urinary tract infection, for which there are antibiotics to be given. Even though disposable diapers do help adults feel more comfortable, adult bed wetting does need to be checked out.

Stress Management: Spa Treatments For You

In this day and age, different forms of relaxation can be done whether at home or outside. You can choose from many such as going to the salon to have a much needed makeover, a massage parlor to stretch those aching muscles, a trip to the movie to have your alone time and more. It’s up to you which best suit your current mood, coz it will affect the rest of your day.

So, how can you relate stress management? Well, a simple logic will tell you that when you are stressed, your whole being is at risk too. It starts from the mind, you can’t think rationally, then to your heart, which pumps blood faster than normal, making your whole body tensed, then your muscles will feel the “heat”, making you ache all over.
