Did you know that 9 of the 10 leading causes of death in the Philippines are health related? And did you also know that just by eating better, making small lifestyle changes and doing moderate activity on most days of the week, we can reduce the risk of many diseases and increase our quality of life?
The People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) is advocating health and wellness in the workplace as one of the most important issues that companies need to address today. With this, PMAP will hold a nationwide event called National Wellness Day that is envisioned to be participated by various companies in the country, both PMAP and non-PMAP members, on June 21, 2013.
During a media roundtable interview recently, PMAP President Evelyn Grace C. Sorongon said that through the years, the organization have organized employee activities like sports fests, family day events and the likes for its member companies.
“This time, we want to come up with an activity that will help promote awareness among employers and employees about the importance of being physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy.“
PMAP also presented a suggested program format that companies can use as a guide for a half-day event that they can organize in their respective workplaces. It includes company-sponsored healthy lunch and snack; learning sessions on work-life balance, holistic and spirituality; and the 7-Minute PMAP Wellness Moment, a quick wellness activity that involves stretching and meditation to be done simultaneously across the nation by employees at exactly 3:00 pm on June 21.
The wellness moment involves the following activities:
2-minute stretching/ self-massage
2-minute of silence (to pray or meditate)
minute dance/ jog in place/ jump or hop
1-minute clapping/ laughing or handshakes with colleagues.
Companies who will join in the event are encouraged to document their participation through videos and/ or photos and send a copy to the PMAP Secretariat to be included in the list of companies who will be recognized with a workplace wellness certificate during a PMAP event.
Furthermore, on October 2013, PMAP will hold a fun run at CCP Grounds, Pasay City as the culminating event of the organization’s efforts in promoting workplace wellness this year. Aside from targeting more than 1,500 participants in the fun run, the event also aims to provide a venue for different organizations to showcase their respective wellness initiatives.
“We encourage all our members to participate in this worthy activity likewise to discuss to your employees our advocacy on how to stay fit and become more productive members of our society,” Sorongon added.
For queries regarding the event, interested parties can contact Ms. Agnes Junio of PMAP through tel. no. 726-1532 loc. 306 or email firstname.lastname@example.org,ph. Details are also posted on www.pmap.org.ph.
Do you believe that being healthy and achieving over-all wellness and vitality is all a matter of choice?
A lot of people live their lives going through different phases and challenges without knowing what is really important until it bites them in the face. We get on our busy schedules and usually the same activities every single day prioritizing the wrong things and making choices that have detrimental consequences in the long run like with our health.
Then, fate gives us painful nudges to remind us that we’re off the track. And sometimes, the consequences of our choices are irreversible.
.. ULCER, DIABETES, STROKE, CANCER… DEATH
WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN HEALTH?
Nothing is more important than health. You may answer money and riches but you will not be able to enjoy all of your wealth when you are stricken with a debilitating disease.
How about a career or a sense of purpose? How can you pursue your goals when you don’t have the energy to perform tasks and activities that will lead you closer to it because you are always ill.
Even building meaningful relationships would be an impossible dream if you are not at the peek of health.
Nothing is more important than health!
If nothing is more important than health, then why are most of us still unwell?
The answer is a combination of many factors but most often it is just a matter of setting the right priorities. To better understand this let us first look at how we keep ourselves healthy. There are four things that we need to consider for us to keep our mind, body and spirit healthy: Sleep, Exercise, Moderation, and Right Food.
Sleep Based on recent studies, adults need 7 hours of sleep a day. Too little sleep may cause memory problems and weakened immune system that may lead to serious illnesses.
Exercise Regular physical activities are beneficial to the whole body. It tones the body, gives more energy and flexibility. It improves circulation, mood and mental function. Exercise also prevents a host of diseases and the ill effects of stress.
Moderation Let’s define moderation as the place in between having too little and having too much. It is a condition built by good judgment and influenced by a clear vision of the ill-effects of things.
Right Food Is simply described as food that is free from any harmful materials and are generally beneficial to the body.
If wellness is determined by these four factors then it’s correct to say that taking all these four factors for granted may be the cause of all our illness, directly or indirectly.
It all boils down to our priorities, our habits and our lifestyles.
Did you know? That when you get sick, it’s actually your white blood cells, your body’s soldiers that do the fighting. Dosing up on Vitamin C has been the common practice in boosting immunity but it’s not enough to strengthen your white blood cells. Check out this very informative video:
In order to get adequate nutrition to fight off illnesses, it is necessary to have a balanced combination of the following elements:
The key is balance. Each of these elements compliments each other to produce its purpose inside our body. Now, your white blood cells need multiple nutrients like Zinc, Vitamins A, C & E to be strong enough to efficiently do its job in beating the germs and viruses, which can make you sick.
Vitamin C develops white blood cells (500mg)
Vitamins A & E intensify the protection of these white blood cells (100 IU of Vitamin E)
Zinc multiplies white blood cells so that we can have the right number of white cells to defend us against sickness.
It is not enough to just take the usual VITAMIN C to keep your Immune System working properly!
The truth is no matter how much Vitamin C you take, it will play that same role. Our body can absorb and use only up to 400mg of Vitamin C. Any more than that is urinated or expelled by our body- and that’s a very expensive urine. Taking 500mg of Vitamin C is already enough to ensure that we’re able to absorb just what we need.
It is also very important that we choose Vitamin supplements that can give you that complete immune system support like the ones found in CONZACE. It has all the anti-oxidant Vitamins A, C and E at the right amount plus Conzace has higher Zinc than other popular vitamins in the market (25mg Zinc).
CONZACE remains to be the number 1 prescribed multivitamin supplement brand by doctors for boosting the immune system here in the Philippines so for those who now CHOOSE TO BE HEALTHY and haven’t tried it yet, I think that this product is worth the shot.
CONZACE is best taken in the morning or night but don’t take it on an empty stomach. It comes in a soft gel capsule form and is available in Mercury, Watson’s and other drugstores for P12.40 per piece.
REMEMBER! The key to health is balance and choosing to be healthy. There are many other ways to do it but you might want to start by boosting your immune system first. Have a happy healthy day every day!
BARLEY GRASS have been proven time and time again to be a potent super food containing important vitamins, proteins and minerals that are essential for the human diet.
BARLEY has seven times more vitamin C than oranges, five times more iron than spinach and 10 times more calcium than milk. Young barley grass also has more than twice oxygen radical observance capacity (ORAC) or antioxidant value found in 200 grams each of prunes, raisins, kale, raw spinach and grapes combined. ORAC measures the ability of a plant to neutralize harmful free radicals that are the culprit in lifestyle and age-related diseases.
With these components, it’s not surprising that barley used by many as an excellent countermeasure against heart diseases, cancer and diabetes, while some use it to combat anemia, asthma, dysmenorrhea, goiter, migraine, osteoarthritis and other common illnesses.
In today’s lightning-quick lifestyles and chemical and preservative-based foods, barley grass serves as the body’s balancing force against stress, fatigue and dreadful diseases. This trend is long foretold by the country’s top distributor of the finest barley powder from New Zealand: Santé International, Inc.
“Health is wealth indeed. Thus, through our products, we want to help our consumers maintain their everyday strength, while they perform their roles for the long run,” explains Jesus Joey Marcelo, Chief Executive Officer of Santé International, Inc.
Today’s barley authority offers five products that underwent a meticulous and patented manufacturing process but Marcelo discloses that the company will soon introduce new and exciting barley-based products that will surely benefit many.
Here are some testimonies about the effectiveness of BARLEY in improving health conditions:
Mercedita Alakar, a businesswoman, was bothered by body pains, constant weakness and incessant coughing after suffering from stroke and hypertension. “I took Santé Barley Pure New Zealand once a day and felt at ease afterwards. The ache on my nape was gone, my blood pressure went down and I’m no longer stressed out.”
Princess Jamila Cana, on the other hand, was diagnosed with neonatal pneumonia with clinical sepsis months after she was born on May 2010. In August of that same year, she was given Santé Pure Barley New Zealand by her mother. In three weeks’ time, Cana was healed of blood infection and her blood count normalized. She can now breathe normally and play actively.
Meanwhile, the family of metal cutter Renato Ualdan, who suffered from stroke and was once bedridden, took Santé Pure Barley twice a day. He gained his strength and appetite, and his skin color and blood pressure also improved.
The stories of Alakar, Cana and Ualdan are living proof of the findings of world-renowned Japanese scientist, inventor and pharmacologist, Dr. Yoshihide Kagiwara, who said that barley
“is the only vegetation on earth that can supply sole nutritional support from birth to old age.”
Santé Barley also helps people who are constipated, has slow metabolism and weak immune system. Its high-fiber content helps promote regular bowel movement and acts as detoxifier that removes heavy toxic metals in the body. Its young grass is rich in chlorophyll, a deodorizer that helps control bad breath, urine and fecal odor and body odor.
Aside from the two major brands, they also have Santé Choco Barley, a chocolate drink dedicated to help kids’ little tummies in terms of digestion and make them more energetic in school and at play. This energy booster also reduces wheezing and inflammation commonly associated with asthma. For coffee connoisseurs, they would surely love Santé Barley Fusion, the new great tasting adventure to wake up their senses. And to defy skin age, there’s Santé C’est Bon, with papaya extracts that lighten skin along with goat’s milk that moisturizes and exfoliates dead skin.
To ensure product credibility and reliability, Santé uses only barley grass certified by BioGro New Zealand’s leading organic certifier. This assures users that Santé barley grass does not contain unsafe levels of heavy metal, herbicide and insecticide residues. Furthermore, Santé products contain no pork, lard or other elements of impurities defined under Islamic Law so therefore, Halal certified.

What’s a fun family activity that is highly affordable and contributes to our well-being? Well, walking around parks and other open spaces is one great idea. Weekends in UP Diliman is proof of this growing phenomenon with individual joggers/runners, barkadas and families walking leisurely (or speed walking, for the fitness enthusiasts) around the academic oval.
And then, of course, we have watching TV as another favorite way to while away the time with the family. With the current trend of staycations (vacation spent at home - the emerging trend in light of rising fuel costs and other travel expenses), the TV remains ensconced as a major source of entertainment (and information) during such stay-at-home downtimes. Also, the 2011 Nielsen Audience Measurement Report revealed that TV is still the most popular media platform in the country.
To wit, walking + family + (child sensitive) TV = Anak TV Fun Family Walk.
On 27 January 2013 (Sunday) the Anak TV organizes the first ever Anak TV Fun Family Walk at the UP Diliman grounds as a homage to the most important institution there is – the family. The event runs from 6 am to 10 am. Expect a fair or carnival atmosphere as the various broadcast networks launch a wide array of gimmicks to engage the general public.
Anak TV, the premiere organization that bats for child-friendly TV fare, decided that is high time to embark on a simple celebration to highlight the importance of family bonding and the key role of television during these bonding moments.
Says Elvira Yap Go, Anak TV President, “Child sensitive television is imperative if we are to preserve the integrity of the Filipino family.”
She adds she is very thankful that all the networks discard competition and really work together whenever Anak TV sounds the clarion call for collective action. “Every year, during our Anak TV Awards, our networks are all-out in supporting our program and ceremony. And now, with this fund-raising, they are still solidly behind us,” continues Ms Go.
In fact, no less than GMA Chairman and CEO Atty Felipe L Gozon will lead the special culminating program of the Anak TV Fun Family Walk on the 27th of January. Atty Gozon says that family is at the heart of the Kapuso Network’s thrusts in delivering quality programs (both in News and Public Affairs and Entertainment).
“We try to have a healthy balance of TV fare that’s suited for adults and kids – there is something for everyone at the appropriate timeslot,” he explains.
The Kapuso Network’s head honcho affirms that while networks are all competing for ratings and revenues, each station is committed to giving the best to the Filipino family – which is the primary audience of local television.
“While business is business, raising a good family is probably the most noble of all endeavors. The Kapuso Network tries its best to provide the Filipino family with meaningful entertainment programs and relevant news and information,” he said.
Joining Atty Gozon at the culminating program of the Anak TV Fun Family Walk are executives from other networks and Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle.
The GMA Network booth at the Anak TV Fun Family Walk promises lots of surprises that will spell fun for the whole family, especially the young ones. Kapuso stars will also be on hand to for photo opportunities.
Gano iTouch Philippines, part of the worldwide presence of one of the established and leading direct selling companies in the industry of wellness, has been siring a persevering breed of professional networkers—highly successful at what they do, and raring to share their formula for success. One of these is its Ambassador Crown Diamond Director (ACDD) named Nathaniel “Nat” Falla, a former OFW (overseas Filipino worker) who attained financial stability the Gano way.
GANOiTOUCH’S Ambassador Crown Diamond Director (ACDD) Nathaniel Falla and Wife Evelyn
Nat Falla has worked so hard to have gotten to where he is now. After 12 years of hardships, he can confidently say that all the hard work and sacrifices had truly paid off. Now, it’s time to enjoy what he worked hard for all these years. It’s time to share his formula for success.
What is Success?
But what is success, and how does one attain it? There are a hundred and one answers to these questions, and among the best quoted answers came from the lips of Nat, a hardworking networker who rose from the ranks.
Success to Nat means never resting on one’s laurels. “One should not give up in the face of trials because it is normal to encounter these things on the road to success,” he shares. Nat’s one person who does not hold back in sharing his experiences and past struggles with those under him. In fact, he has not stopped supporting his colleagues and downlines. It is important for him to be able to impart to his downlines the lessons that he has learned in the business.
Nat believes that one can achieve success in multi-level marketing as long as one is truly determined. He follows three key virtues of success that kept him going all these years.
Nat’s 3 Key Virtues of Success:
Stay Focused – Understand the business and learn it by heart. Love what you do. Don’t be distracted and don’t get sidetracked because you have a dream to achieve for yourself and for your loved ones.
Be Humble – Don’t put yourself on a pedestal just because you are ranked higher than your peers. Show to others that there is a natural process of climbing the ladder to success. Be generous and share with others the lessons and tips you have learned in your own journey.
Keep the Faith – Never forget that God exists and that He is always there for you. Thank Him for the success and even the trials that come your way.
Looking back, Nat remembers the discouragements and bad experiences he had when he was just starting. He was among those who would dream of being able to escape the world of debt. He was among many who wanted to fulfill their obligations in life. Now, he has finally reached what many only dream of: financial freedom. He heaved a sigh of relief that he has finally made it this far, saying “Wow grabe, sabi nga nila, eto na. Eto na ang napakasarap na parte ng business na ito.” (“Wow, this is amazing, as they say, this is it. This is what they call the sweetest part of this business.”)
Nat always keeps in mind that in this business, with his hard work he is not the only one who succeeds but he is also helping others get to where they are now. He is passionate in being an instrument to help others. The result is, like him, they, too, are enjoying the fruits of their labor.
Being an Ambassador Crown Diamond Director means enjoying what the company has promised, such as additional incentives besides the earnings received every month. He and his fellow ACDD now receive a 3% incentive from the total sales of the company. They enjoy a bonus payout every month.
Sandra Wee is one of the people that Nat inspired. Sandra described Nat as kind and very supportive to his downlines. She said that Nat is very generous in teaching and guiding others. And that he wants to see more people succeed in the company, “the more, the merrier”. Sandra is very grateful to Nat Falla for all the guidance and support he is giving to his peers. Her words of thanks,
“Sir, I salute you, salamat sa iyong guidance, sa iyong walang sawang pag- supporta sa amin sa lahat ng aming mga kasama. At lahat ng achievements mo ay talagangpinaghirapan po.” (“Sir, I salute you, thank you for your guidance and unwavering support to me and my peers. All your achievements you have truly worked hard for.”)
Now a fellow ACDD, Billy Quiñones owes a great deal of gratitude to Nat. He started with Gano iTouch in January 2010. In a very short span of time, with Nat’s help, he became an ACDD. Billy shares that Nat is very dedicated to helping his downlines.
“Isa ako sa mga taong tinulungan niya. Isa ako sa mga taong nagbago ang buhay dahil sa kanyang mga payo na ibinigay sa akin, kaya ako ay talagang masasabi natin na isa sa mga tao na nakakuha ng mga pangarap dito sa Gano itouch” (“I’m one of those people he helped. I’m one of those people who have a changed life now because of his advice. I can be considered as one of the people who have flourished with Gano iTouch.”)
Nat’s ultimate advice to those aspiring to be like him,
“Kapag hindi mo ginawa ngayon may ibang gagawan d’yan. Kaya kung ako sa iyo, ngayon pa lang, umpisahan mo na. Umpisahan mo, pangarapin mo na maging Ambassador Crown Diamond Director. Kung hindi, iba ang gagawa niyan.” (“If you don’t do it, others will. So if I were you, start now. Set out and aspire to be an Ambassador Crown Diamond Director. If not, others will do it ahead of you.”)

GFT or Golden Fry Tech is a newly designed, patent-pending oil saving plate. Engineered and manufactured in Japan, the completely food safe 100% titanium catalyst plate has been laboratory tested and proven to prolong the life of cooking oil by to 50 – 200%. Plus, it reduces cooking time and enhances the flavor of fried foods while cutting oil absorption by 50% – which means healthier fried foods!
GFT is a safe oil preserving plate made of specially processed titanium at a leading manufacturer in Japan. Its international patent pending technology allows the GFT plate to slow the oil degradation process, which has four main causes:
Oxidation (contact with oxygen in the air)
Heating that causes thermal polymerization (sticking of oil molecules)
Hydrolysis caused by moisture in foods being fried (contact with water/moisture)
Substances released by foods being fried
GFT prevents frying oil degradation by slowing oil oxidation, hydrolysis and thermal polymerization or “sticking” of the oil molecules. This, in turn, minimizes rises in viscosity (thickness), smoking, odors, foaming and blackening. This more efficient, conditioned oil cooks foods faster at lower temperatures and reduces absorption into foods, resulting in a healthier, tastier fried food.
HOW TO USE THE GOLDEN FRY TECH (GFT) PLATE?
Place GFT plates in your fryer WHILE OIL IS STILL COOL. One plate is good for 35LBS to 50LBS Fryer.
Deep fry food. GFT allows foods to cook 34%quicker and at lower temperatures (recommended cooking temperature when using GFT is 170º C or 330º F).
Until summer of 2011, GFT plates have been used in small quantities in Japan, due to the limited quantities available for purchase. LTH Corporation launched in August 2011 a mass production facilities for the GFT, which significantly reduced costs and increased the availability of product to customers worldwide.
“In this current age of ecology, it is necessary to greatly reduce our excessive use of oil. Moreover, because of today’s health consciousness, people are demanding quality in the fried foods they choose. Our Golden Fry Tech healthy ecological plate is drawing attention as a product that meets both of those needs. We have patented it internationally and is made with proprietary technology no one can imitate, so we expect it to make a strong impact on markets worldwide” said Koji Tomita of LTH Corporation
In fact, it is the most spiritual part of our body and that is why taking good care of our eyes is essential to holistic health.
Your eyes are already alluring, expressive and beautiful. However, with the right techniques, the beauty of your eyes can also be enhanced with a little human intervention and the power of makeup. Here are some of the most beautiful eyes in the world:
For the ladies out there, listen up. Do you often wonder which makeup style is best suited for your eye shape? Luckily, beauty experts around cyberspace offer professional suggestions for enhancing an already beautiful you and I am going to share some of their fool-proof tips on enhancing the beauty of the eyes.
For deep-set eyes, choose more subtle, glittery shades for your eyelids to make your peepers pop. If you’re feeling a little daring, try bolder contouring colors for a mysterious look. For close-set eyes, line only the outer areas of the eyes to make them look wider and more alert, while brightening the eye areas near the nose line.
For almond-shape eyes, define and enlarge the lids by applying three varying tones on the brow bone, the eyelids and the crease areas. For Asian eyes, fill in your brows with a brow pencil that’s one shade lighter than your natural hair color, then use a light-colored eye shadow all over the eye area, from your lash line to your brow. This trick will make your eyes appear larger.
For wide-set eyes, apply a deep-colored liner along the entire rim of your lower lashes, carefully defining the inner eye corners, creating the illusion that your eyes are closer together.
The aforementioned tips can also help disguise tired or stressed-out eyes, emphasize your eye color and complement your skin tone.
But all these are only on the surface. Makeup, admittedly, can have its downsides, causing eye redness, irritation, allergies to chemicals and darkening of the skin on the eyelids.
So, why not go deeper and have a more meaningful and substantial makeover to attain truly beautiful eyes?
Eyes are at their most beautiful when at their healthiest. Why not try BRAND’S® InnerShine ® Berry Essence?
BRAND’S® InnerShine Berry Essence is a natural source containing a wide range of powerful antioxidants and is fortified with Vitamins A, C, E and Zinc for complete eye protection from excessive exposure to UV radiation and other potential oxidative damages from free radicals.
It has no added artificial colorings or preservatives as it helps to promote overall health and nourish the eyes by providing complete eye nutrients for beautiful eyes that sparkle.
I got introduced to BRAND’S® InnerShine Berry Essence a couple of months ago and I’ve been using it ever since. Aside from its health benefits, it also tastes really good.
A bottle a day of BRAND’S® InnerShine Berry Essence can be your most potent ally in the battle against eye abuse. It is specially formulated with seven types of premium berries from Europe and the U.S. (acai berry, bilberry, blackcurrant, chokeberry, cranberry, elderberry, and strawberry), making it the ultimate drink for healthy, and beautiful eyes.
BRAND’S® InnerShine Berry Essence is available at Watsons, Landmark supermarkets, and Mercury Drug stores in the Greater Manila at an SRP of P85 per bottle.
It’s undeniable that right now, TEA has become quite a very popular drink here in the Philippines second only to coffee and has even surpassed fruit juices, shakes and even sodas for the cold drink category. One type of cold tea blend seems to have taken hold of the market in the past Months – THAI MILK TEA.
In Thailand, Cold Tea is served as either Cha Dum Yen (plain Iced Tea) or the Cha Yen (Iced Tea with milk).
Honestly, my first taste of Milk Tea has not been a very pleasant one. The taste was just not jiving with my personal expectations of how a tea is served. However, I have to say that with practice, one can really grow to enjoy Milk Teas as an alternative drink.
Just like my experience with it, I think majority of Pinoys have grown to like it in time and entrepreneurs have taken notice of this, that’s why there’s been like an explosion of Milk Tea Bars and Kiosks all over the metro and they’re all doing well considering the immense number of competitions right now.
JELLY G, Ali Mall Branch
I have tried quite a number of Milk Tea brands and just last Friday I visited this Kiosk at the lower level of Ali Mall called JELLY G.
JELLY G highlights the use of Grass Jelly or Leaf Jelly to enhance and heighten the taste and visual appeal of their drinks. They do serve a lot of different drinks like Tea, Coffee, Chocolates and Fruit Juices but JELLY G takes pride in claiming the title as the only drink brand in the market that serves authentic, creamy and perfectly blended THAI milk tea.Thai Milk Tea is the main product of JELLY G. It is characterized by its deep amber color of the tea and its milk-tinted layer. The combination of strongly-steeped tea, dairy and sugar make it a perfect complement to refresh ones thirst.
JELLY G Marketing Head, Rowel Acebuche said that all their drinks are fresh and natural. Tea leaves and coffee grounded beans are freshly steeped, guaranteeing each customers of the drink’s vividness. Fruit juices are made from puree, preserving its natural flavour and fruitfulness. Each drink is then sweetened and blended to reach its creaminess.
Each JELLY G drink also has its own health benefits. For example a good serving of JELLY G’s Thai Milk Tea is an excellent source of Calcium and Vitamin A. It is generally low in fat and it may also positively influence blood pressure. Most teas have a great calming effect on the body.The Jasmine Tea and Green Tea in their Jasmine Green variant is particularly healthy because of its powerful antioxidants. It offers many health benefits, including a reduced risk of cancer, lower heart rate, blood pressure, stroke and cholesterol levels.
The Oolong Tea in their Chai Tea variant is also beneficial in reducing chronic bodily conditions such as heart diseases and inflammatory disorders. It helps in reducing high cholesterol levels, promoting superior bone structure, robust skin and good dental health.
Coffee is also a great anti-oxidant and it improves physical endurance and cognitive functions.
GRASS JELLY on the other hand, also has some awesome health benefits:
It reduces fever
It prevents indigestion
It lowers high blood pressure
It acts as a diuretic
It increases fertility
Aside from the healthy drinks, JELLY G also has some snack items and merienda treats like these flavored bread toasts:
And also snack items like, dried coconuts, spicy mango, thai sweet tamarind, dilis with sesame seed and peanut with sesame seed.
At JELLY G’s Ali Mall branch you may also have your drink while playing a couple of rounds of games with a friend. Each table is supplied with board games like chess, dominoes and checkers. That makes drinking THAI MILK TEA at JELLY G Ali Mall doubly enjoyable.
