Amazing Details of our Body!

While getting a physical health examination recently, I was amazed at the pieces of equipments used to check my eye, heart, blood and other parts of my body. I was impressed that someone had invented all those equipments to that could gather a lot of details about my current general health simply by looking at the result of the test.
Like for example at one blood sample, I was able to know a lot of test like my lipid profile, sugar count, uric acid, potassium,calcium, liver, white blood cells, red blood cells and many …many more!

It is remarkable that a person’s overall health can be measured by the result of the blood tests. I the remembered What care the Lord has taken to place these details in the bodies He has created! It immediately brings to my mind the words of David, the psalmist, who reveled in God’s creativity: “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well” (Ps. 139:14).

The Common Hurdles in Weight Loss

Posted on

Everyone is encouraged to pay close attention to one’s health. After all, a healthy mind and body is very important and a working individual certainly knows this. While it might be perfect to end a long and stressful day with a big burger and some fries, that may be an unhealthy choice. Gaining weight by having the wrong type of foods can lead to serious health problems so once you notice that those pants doesn’t fit anymore or you’re having difficulty in taking the stairs, then you might want to consider losing weight.

With obesity being one of the leading causes of heart attack and other fatal diseases, weight loss is your key towards a longer and more productive life. While shedding those unwanted pounds is not really a walk in the park, identifying the obstacles along the way can be a great help.

One of the hurdles comes during the Holidays. Who would want to miss out on the home cooked meals and baked goodies, right? This is why people often fail on their diet programs once the holiday season is here. No need to deprive you of all the good stuff: eat in moderation. Have small bites instead of eating a big portion.

Another hurdle comes from one’s personal view and dedication about weight loss. Do not procrastinate. Start your diet program today, not tomorrow or the next day. Having all these excuses will not bring your body any benefits so it’s better to get up and start losing weight.

Set small goals that you can achieve in less time. This way you can see progress that will keep you motivated. But also, don’t forget to set long term ones and keep your focus towards achieving them.

Amazing Finding : My Early Menopausal

Posted on

Most people associates menopausal with older women , but it can occur in younger women as well. This is what I’ve learned yesterday when I visited my Internist, Dr. Ruby  Alcantara at Capitol University Medical City . My first consultation was last February when I felt abnormal heartbeat and night sweats a week after I was admitted due to hemorrhagic Dengue Fever. She suspected that there’s something wrong with my Thyroid, so in undergone another test. Thank God it was negative.

Yesterday, I went to see Dr. Alcantara again. I purposely went to her clinic without my husband so that I can pour out everything  I felt physically and emotionally. I told her about my panic attacks every time I had palpitations , my cold feet at nights, unexplained bloating and inflammation in my joints. I added I have inexplicable feeling of despair in moments I remember Typhoon Sendong . I poured out my heart and was able to shed some tears.

Right then and there she told me I am undergoing premature menopausal. What? But I am only 44? She explained that my menopausal was accelerated because of hormonal imbalance brought by my hysterectomy ( removal of uterus) 12 years ago . She instructed me to see a Psychiatrist to understand more the mystery of menopausal. Hmmm… is this really necessary? What do you think?
