Have a Happy Holidays with Svelt’i

by , in
It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. From frenzied last-minute shopping sprees to multiple Christmas parties, we really can’t deny that the holidays are just around the corner. But, despite all the infectious merriment that the holidays bring, we also cannot deny the fact that all the stress the holiday season brings can absolutely take a toll on your skin with all the late-night partying, non-stop eating, and mad traffic we all have to deal with.

So how do we deal with these skin SOS and still be as glowing and youthful during the holidays?

Always Keep Hydrated

The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge in booze and stay late at night especially with all the Christmas get-togethers you need to attend. But keep in mind that too much alcohol and less sleep can take a toll on the appearance of your skin. “Skin care addresses two concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and not take it for granted most especially during the holidays which can be really stressful,” emphasizes Dr. Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre in Timog Avenue, Quezon City.

Drinking lots of water can help keep your skin hydrated but there are also other ways of doing so.




PURIFY AND NOURISH

No matter how late you come home from a night of drinking and partying, never forget to rid your face first off all the make-up you wore and end your day with nourishing your skin. The thorough cleansing and washing away of make-up before sleeping is also an important part of skin care. To cap the skin care regimen, Dr.Salazar recommends a cleanser that can prevent the onset of pores, blemishes, and acne; it will also improve skin tone and heal any skin inflammation.

After washing your face to get all the make-up gunk off, apply a proper facial serum that provides anti-aging effects accelerated by the climate, stress, and even genetics. “It makes you look youthful and energetic. Our stem cell ampoule also reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the skin tone, and softens the skin as well.” Says Dr.Salazar.


GIVE YOUR SKIN A DETOX

The holiday season is definitely a time for gift-giving so why not treat yourself by giving your skin a much-deserved detox? Aside from eating healthy and doing a good amount of exercise, you can also gift yourself with a cream that can help bring back the skin glow that was lost during the holiday frenzy.

“Externally, you can apply every morning our massage cream that infuses the skin with collagen. Collagen rejuvenates the skin and makes it appear youthful. Our production of it reduces as we age, but products like the massage cream infuses regular doses of collagen that add that let the skin’s natural glow to shine.”

“Since Christmas is a time for giving, it is high-time that you give yourself the best gift you can have and that is the right skin care regimen. With all the stress you have to deal with during the holiday season, a trip to a skin clinic such as Svelt’i is a great reward for yourself. Do proper skin care daily and you will see the results,” enthuses Dr. Salazar. “To ensure that you are on the right track, you can confirm the methods and outcome of your skin care regimen with clinical specialists who will advise you accordingly. A monthly visit can do wonders for the overall wellness and aesthetic appearance of your skin.”


TREAT YOURSELF

Of course, one of the best skin regimens ever is to stay healthy and keep a positive outlook because it would definitely manifest on your skin. But since it’s the holiday season, why don’t you give yourself a Christmas treat and go all out on skin care? “If you want to reward yourself this Christmas, go for SkinRenew,” says Dr.Salazar. “It works on three levels that really rejuvenates and firms our skin. It exfoliates, infuses, and oxygenates it. Exfoliation removes the dead cells from the skin and replaces them with new fresh ones. Infusion gives the skin cells the nutrients they need to fight disease and the effects of aging. Oxygenation makes the skin vibrant and gives it that youthful glow.” Nothing would be more rewarding than having healthy and glowing skin to welcome 2018, right?

The holiday season may take a toll on your skin but with these holiday skin care tips, you can keep your skin looking stress-free and beautiful and welcome 2018 with a bang!

RGC Group more than ready for CARS Program and PUV Modernization

by , in
At the First Philippine Auto Parts Expo, which was recently held at the Philippine Trade Training Center, local automotive parts manufacturers gathered to showcase their products and capabilities to boost the production in their industry. Several modernized jeepney prototypes were also featured in the event, which made manufacturers more enthusiastic about the future of their business. With the government’s Comprehensive Automotive Resurgence Strategy (CARS) Program and PUV Modernization on its way, the automotive parts manufacturing industry in the Philippines is expected to gain more traction in its production in the years to come.

The Robert G. Cheng (RGC) Group of Companies, the company behind Roberts Automotive and Industrial Parts Manufacturing Corporation (Robert AIPMC) and the country’s leading foam manufacturer, Uratex, was one of the exhibitors for the event. “Presently we are already supplying parts for Mitsubishi and Toyota, and now with the Modernization Program, we can see that we could provide more for the automotive industry”, RGC Group Executive Vice President, Mr. Eddie Gallor expressed his excitement. “We are also glad that we now have the help of the government in boosting our local manufacturing industry.”


On top of that, RGC Group will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary next year and Mr. Eddie Gallor has been with the company since day one. “We expect to be get very busy once these programs are on full effect, and that is another thing to celebrate next year”, Gallor said. “We have worked hard these past decades in keeping up with the times by continuously investing on technologies that improve the quality of our products. This gave us the accreditation for the CARS Program and the capacity to do more. We are still operating only at a fraction of the utilization of our investments, and we expect that in the years to come, we could run at our full potential.”

“We also target to develop further our textile company, so that we could add more parts that are supplied locally,” Gallor adds. He explained that the demand for cars has been there, but most units come from overseas. “If automotive production is done here with parts supplied by local manufacturers, it will be a great boost for the manufacturing industry, which is also good for the economy,” Gallor explains. “This also means that we could provide more job opportunities for more Filipinos.”

“If the CARS and PUV Modernization Programs continues to progress as the years pass, we are more than ready to meet the demands”, Gallor emphasizes. “I have been in the industry for more than 40 years and we have been prepared many years back. We are ready to be more productive when needed. With all the new equipment and technologies we have invested on these past years, I am sure that we can do so much more.”

Mark your calendar! Nailaholics: Great Argan Sale Year 2 November 28 – December 12, 2017

by , in
A lot of people put much attention on their skin during year-end. The promise to make an effort to take better care of your skin becomes a big part of resolutions as the year winds down to a close. But mostly because living in a tropical country during the most unpredictable season of the year, where the weather swings from sunny and humid to cold and wet in minutes, on top of all the sugar, alcohol and greasy holiday treats, can really wreak havoc on your skin.

Of course, eating healthy (a lot of greens, water, and fiber), getting enough sleep and a lot of exercise help. Unfortunately, the season to be merry, jolly, and bright is just around the corner, and it will prove nearly impossible to say no to all the revelry. So here’s a helpful insider tip: argan oil.
Drawn from trees that grow in the southern region of Morocco, argan oil is a rich blend of antioxidants, vitamin A and E, polyunsaturated fat, and essential fatty acid. It’s literally food for hair and skin, eases inflammation, and gives it a boost of moisture from within that lends itself to an inner glow—the hallmark of healthy skin.

The great news is that you can get all the benefits of argan oil can from just mixing a few drops of argan oil into your trusty, go-to beauty products or by directly applying it onto your skin. This makes it a very versatile addition to your beauty routine.


That said, here’s an even better insider tip that is just in time for the holidays: you can get a free 50 ml bottle for every purchase of one 100 ml Argan Oil bottle at any Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa branch.

Each 100 ml argan oil bottle is priced at Php 1,390. Now you get to take home more with the Great Argan Sale, giving you a savings of Php 790 which is the original price of your free 50 ml argan oil bottle.

You better hurry though because this exclusive promotion runs only from November 28 to Dec 12, 2017.

It’s a small price to pay for a product that can serve as your nighttime moisturizer, a skin toner, makeup remover, whole body moisturizer, leave-in hair conditioner and can also be a cure for acne, stretch marks and razor bumps and burns.

“It’s important to note though that you get the real deal. So be sure to get it from somewhere that has a longstanding reputation of reliability and quality. It’s the concentration of argan oil that allows you to receive all its benefits, so make sure you’re getting it from a brand that can be trusted when they say that they are giving you a bottle with no artificial preservatives,” shares Lorraine Baterina, Brand Manager of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa.

Robinsons Galleria is Hey Sugar's New Home

by , in
Have you imagined the ups and downs of living in the Northern part of the Philippines? On one hand, year-round sun and fun; on the other, maintaining your body for year-round sunning and funning. Isn't that exhausting?

When you have the option to slip into your shorts and head to the beach or pool any time of the year, the goal is to maintain skin that’s smooth, no matter what season, which can certainly be sorted out by an appointment to your nearest waxing salon. But for Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon, it’s as much about giving clients what they need while making sure that they allow them to feel fabulous about themselves as well.


Hey Sugar makes all-natural and 100 % Sugar grooming options accessible to clients of all shapes and sizes. They use 100% naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax—a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.

Hey Sugar!’s interiors are renowned for being warm, inviting and discreet. Clients can walk in and expect a clean and sterilized environment ideal for the sensitive beauty routines that they are about to undergo, while still feel like they are about to get pampered and taken care of.

And best of all, they can rest easy knowing they are in the hands of expert aestheticians who were trained to deliver only the best results. For newbies, this means you can easily ask your aesthetician any question about the process and advantages of sugar waxing and get a clear answer; for veterans, you know you will walk out of your appointment knowing there’s no other destination that can give you the same results using all-organic hair-removal methods.


“We strive to bring reliable and fast services, but also connect with our customers—it’s a very personal grooming procedure, after all, and we are dedicated to making customers happy and comfortable. Clients expect quality service, superior treatments and affordable prices but not at the expense of a warm and comfortable environment—and that’s exactly what we have waiting for them here,” explains Arvin A. Amaro, Hey Sugar’s Marketing Head.

At the end of the day, everyone deserves some sugar…and there’s no better place to get it than by heading to Hey Sugar! Robinsons Galleria.

Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon currently has 33 locations nationwide, including in Unimart Greenhills, Ayala Malls Centrio CDO, UP Town Center, Festival Supermall, SM Bicutan, SM Sta. Rosa, SM Bacolod, SM Calamba, and our newest branch Hey Sugar Robinsons Galleria.

How to start creating a comprehensive "face" of your brand with Logojoy

by , in
Logo is a business or a brand's graphical representation. It anchors a company's brand and becomes the single most visible manifestation of the company within the target market and thus, a well-designed logo is an essential part of any company's overall marketing strategy.

If you are a start-up and looking for a logo to be the "face" of your brand, where do you usually turn to? Here's a trick that will help you save a lot when it comes to making a unique identity for your company.


I have found out an online logo making tool that helps someone even newbie in marketing and advertising create a well-design logo to give meaning about the company or its industry. It's called Logojoy and it offers various ways to create and design a perfect logo.

The first thing you have to do is to choose the way you want your logo started and done. It can be DIY, with an online logo maker, thru logo templates, thru crowdsourcing, with the aid of a freelance designer, or thru a design agency.

If you want full control over the design, style, fonts, and colors of your logo, you may choose to Do-it-yourself. With this way of making a logo, you don't have to pay someone thus it will save you a lot of money but the cons are that it might be time-consuming and quality might be low especially if you don't have enough technical knowledge about graphics.

An online logo maker comes in handy to quickly customize and design logos. This way of creating logo costs less and you have control on the time you want to spend. If you want better and high-quality versions you can pay for the services and packages.

If you are in doubt of your ability to personalize your logo and want to have a more professional logo, you may opt to collaborate with a pro designer, crowdsource and choose from multiple designs created or work with a top-of-the-line agency that is already an expert when it comes to doing the job.

There are a lot of ways to create your dream logo with Logojoy. You just have to take note of all your requirements - budget, timeframe, and quality - and you can start choosing. With this online tool, you always have choices for comprehensive logos that will provide essential information with the company's core brand towards business success.

Educational App To Brush Up Your Learning Skill

by , in
Educational AppTo Brush Up Your Learning Skill

Not all student are fast learners. Some are slow learners and they need some extra help along the way besides the normal classes. There are also students who are not able to attend classes due to some health issues or inconvenience that caused them to miss important classes. And there are some who are not fortunate enough to go to college due to financial issue. These students have to look for other alternatives to help them keep up with their studies or lessons.

Taking tuition classes with a lecturer or a senior can be expensive and the time may not be convenient. One cheap and convenient alternative which is now popular among students is the college educational app. Students can choose an education app from the many free apps available on the App Store for iOS devices or Google Play Store for android devices, and easily download the free app they want onto their mobile devices. They can then try out the free trial and if they find that the app chosen works well for them, they can then decide to subscribe to use the app by paying a reasonable sum on a monthly basis.

Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, reaches out to Filipino children suffering from liver diseases

by , in
Based on WHO data published in 2014, liver disease is the 14th top cause of death in the Philippines. The National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI) data shows that in 2005, Philippines Cancer facts and Estimates reported that 7,477 Filipinos died of liver cancer second to lung cancer (26.7)% with an estimated annual death of 15,881.

In a story published in Rappler last February 2014, liver cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancer, as it is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Globally the ratio is at .95, which implies that 95 out of 100 persons with liver cancer have chances of dying.


These facts don't lie. But the sad fact is that the average medical cost of liver-related illness is expensive for the middle-class Filipinos. Given the rising cost of medical and health services, and pharmaceutical products in the country as compared to other Asian countries like India, Taiwan and Thailand, many Filipino families seek medical attention abroad.

The search of several Filipinos to find affordable medical services have led them to Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, Delhi. In the last few months, this hospital has performed several pediatric liver transplantatiom for Filipino children.

To spread awareness on the importance and urgency of liver transplant in babies born with the congenital liver disease, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals held a press conference last November 22, 2017 at the Shangri-la Makati hotel.

Present in the press con is Dr. Anupam Sibal, Group Medical Director, Apollo Hospitals Group and Senior Pediatric Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist from Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals. Filipino patients and their families also attended the event to share their true-to-life experiences.


"Our transplantation success rates are comparable to the centers in many developed countries which is truly a credit to the excellent team at Apollo that adheres to the highest standards of clinical care. The Apollo transplant Program does not only cater to the domestic needs but also to patients from 44 other countries as far as Bolivia, Kenya, and Saudi Arabia," explains Dr. Sibal.

"We are privileged to offer hope to babies and children from the Philippines. The support structure in the Philippines for families is remarkable with parents supporting each other. The support from foundations and support groups is truly exemplary. The "pay it forward" culture is so heartwarming and I have not seen this in other countries," he added.

Among the Filipino children who have given hope with the successful liver transplants at the Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals were :

Baby Jermaine, a one-year-old baby girl who was advised a liver transplant due to advanced liver failure. She had been admitted multiple times due to blood vomiting. Through the help of the LITRO group, they were able to raise funds for Jermaine's operation which was successfully done at Apollo Hospitals. Now, Baby Jermaine has fully recovered from the transplantation.



Baby Nathaniel was diagnosed with Caroli disease, a rare congenital disorder of the intrahepatic bile ducts. The family flew to India on June 26, 2017, and Baby Nathan underwent liver transplant on July 6, 2017. He was successfully operated and was discharged after 3 weeks. Two months later, August 25, 2017; they flew back to the Philippines.

Baby Kalen was noticed having signs of liver disease at 2 months due to the yellowish skin. Kalen's parents found out about Indraprastha Apollo Hospital through the internet. Last August 2017 they went to India for Kalem's liver transplant. He stayed in the ICU for 11 days before he finally shifted to a regular room. Today, Baby Kalem is still having his medication and weekly check-ups here in the Philippines.

Baby Genesis developed pneumonia after birth. While confined in the hospital, he developed worsening jaundice and was diagnosed with biliary atresia. Luckily, his parents find the way to Indraprastha Apollo Hospital for his transplant. he is now on his way to a full recovery.



About Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals

Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals is India's first JCI accredited hospital and is a joint venture between the government of Delhi and Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Limited. It is the 3rd super-specialty tertiary care hospital set up by the ApolloHospitals Group in July 1996.

Ten things that make “The Long Road Home” totally worth it

by , in
“The Long Road Home” is a National Geographic’s ambitious series that brings to Technicolor cutting-edge life the harrowing yet inspiring events of April 2004. Here are ten great reasons why this should be your next TV addiction.



1.    It’s based on a painstakingly researched true story. Based on the New York Times best-selling book by internationally acclaimed journalist Martha Raddatz, “The Long Road Home—A Story of War and Family” is about Black Sunday in April 2004. Currently ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent, Raddatz book was praised by The Washington Post as "a masterpiece of literary non-fiction that rivals any war-related classic that has preceded it."

2.    Black Sunday would change the way the American military saw Iraq: from a simple peacekeeping mission to a fight against domestic insurgents. Soldiers from the US 1st Cavalry Division of Fort Hood, Texas were ambushed in Sadr City, Baghdad, with eight making the ultimate sacrifice that day and over 65 seriously wounded.

3.    It shines a light on the heroes behind the scenes. “With The Long Road Home…[we’re] going to shine a light on the sisterhood formed by their wives on the home front as they [rallied] around each other awaiting news of their husbands’ fates,” says National Geographic Channel executive vice president and head of global scripted programming and development Carolyn Bernstein.

4.    The staff behind the series is a powerhouse in itself, with screenwriter, showrunner, and executive producer Mikko Alanne adapting the book’s events for TV. Direction is provided by Emmy winners Phil Abraham and Mikael Salomon, and the series’ executive producers are Mike Medavoy, Mikko Alanne, Jason Clark, Benjamin Anderson and Edward McGurn. For National Geographic, Carolyn G. Bernstein is executive vice president and head of global scripted development and production.


5.    The feels you’ll get are going to be too real. Book author Martha Raddatz, according to the New York Times, went back “…and painstakingly reconstructed the event from every conceivable angle — including the thing that he said/she said reactions of soldiers in Iraq and their wives in Fort Hood, Tex. Some of those wives would receive the most dreaded kinds of visitors after the battle. Not since the Vietnam War did the First Cavalry suffer so many casualties in one day.”

6.    Much care has been taken to reconstruct the events as closely as they happened. Talk about bringing you there: In addition to consulting the author herself for the show’s production, NatGeo brought in two US Army veterans who survived the ambush: Eric Bourquin and Aaron Fowler.

In addition, the responses to the book alone have been overwhelmingly positive. From Goodreads to Reddit, even those who admit not to reading about military history have been touched by the story of “The Long Road Home” and have had their eyes opened by the harsh realities of military operations; in a Goodreads review, “Gregory” writes about how the 1st Cavalry Division had neither tanks nor armored Humvees despite their general, Peter Chiarelli, begging for these to protect his people—and how he was rebuked in public because the provision of such would “send the wrong message to the Iraqis.”

7.    The series stars Michael Kelly (“House of Cards,” “Taboo”); Jason Ritter (“Parenthood,” “Girls”); E.J. Bonilla (“Unforgettable”); Kate Bosworth (“Superman Returns,” “Blue Crush,” “SS-GB,” “The Art of More”); Sarah Wayne Callies (“Prison Break,” “The Walking Dead,” “Colony”); Noel Fisher (“Shameless”); Jeremy Sisto (“Suburgatory,” “Law & Order,” “Six Feet Under”); Jon Beavers (“NCIS,” “Gotham,” “The Fresh Beat Band”); and Darius Homayoun (“Tyrant”), among many others.

8.    Not too long, not too short: just right. This eight-part series reflects the eight hours that saw three desperate yet deadly rescue missions launched to save the soldiers in the ambush.

9. It’s history in the making: National Geographic gives viewers a unique perspective of the toll war takes on soldiers and their families. The literary genre of creative nonfiction comes to life in a gripping and intimate way, pushing the boundaries of entertainment and education closer together in a new and exciting way.

Follow the action of the battle on two simultaneous fronts—the chaotic, terror-filled streets of Sadr City, where a group of inexperienced young soldiers faces an unexpected and unimaginable attack with bravery they never knew they had, and the home front at Fort Hood in Texas, where family members, desperate for news of their loved ones and fearing the worst, discover their own courage and determination as well.

10. You can take the show with you, wherever you are. No soldier fights alone—and you won’t be missing a thing with the Fox+ app, available for iOS and Android devices, which gives you access to this brilliant series. Don’t miss a moment—not even when stuck in the everyday Carmageddon of traffic.

“The Long Road Home” begins with the special two-hour premiere “Black Sunday” on November 5, 2017 at 10:00 p.m., with regular new episode telecasts every Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. on National Geographic and every Sunday at 10:00p.m. for the weekend primetime replay.

National Geographic is seen on Channel 41 (Skycable), Channel 141 (Cignal), Channel 62 (Cablelink) and Channel 153 on (GSAT).  National Geographic HD is seen on Channel 195 (Skycable), Channel 240 (Cignal) and Channel 331 (Cablelink).

Festino Weekend Market adds sparkle in Filinvest City

by , in
I spent 5 years living in Alabang. I have heard of some weekend markets inside an exclusive village during those times but since the place is not accessible by public transport, I never had the chance to take even a glance at it. I have heard that weekend marketplace is where you'll find quality products that are locally sourced and that it is a preview of the lifestyle of the area, giving visitors a taste of the lives the locals lead. I never had the chance to immerse myself in the culture of the usual run-of-the-mill marketplace back then that's why when I got an invite to join the launch of the Festino weekend market, it made me so excited; aside from the fact that I will revisit the place that has been an important part of my life.


Festino promises to be a different kind of weekend market. As the newest lifestyle and entertainment destination located at the heart of the south, its tasteful ambiance sets it apart from the frantic, stressful seasonal markets that spring up across the metro during this merry season. It is poised to showcase only the most passionate of local cooks and crafters, with a wide selection of goods that are unique, fresh and designed to inspire—or satiate the palate!

Festino features numerous merchants like Three Guys and a Grill, Cafe 2.0, GMCS Farms, Kapoke PH, Jam Foods Tapa, Thorny Guy and more; where visitors can shop and experience delightful treats.

Best of all is the carefully curated entertainment options, with art appreciation/classes to create a multi-sensorial experience to please the senses. It’s a mixture of food, art, and music all set in a tasteful setting, inspired by yet moving a step above the conventional urban markets. Likewise, get involved with the different recreational activities such as yoga, photo styling workshop, watercolor session and more. 


That's not all! Catch a glimpse of the hottest cars on showcase and even test drive it. From the high performance, Lotus to the iconic MINI and even the classic Vespa are bringing in zest to the whole Festino market. Likewise, get enticed with the Piaggio’s Ape customized interiors to fit in with your market fancy.

Festino market was launched together with Filinvest City’s Annual Christmas Light Show on November 23, Thursday. Now on it’s 5th year run, it has become the most anticipated light show in the South gathering increasing numbers of visitors yearly. In 2017, the Light Show’s highlight is a 40-foot 3D Mapped Tree featuring visuals that represent the holiday cheer. As happy visitors to previous editions of Filinvest City’s Christmas Light Show have come to expect, the hourly weekend show at the Spectrum Midway is a delight to look forward to.


The Festino Weekend Market is every weekends (Fridays-Sundays, 4PM onwards) starting November 23, 2017. Filinvest City Christmas Light Show is ongoing daily starting at 6PM. There will be live band concerts on Saturdays and Christmas Carols on Sundays.

Follow Festino Market on Instagram and Facebook for weekly updates.

Sky Life brings Night Sky Cinema closer to the south community

by , in
Our entire family went to Sky Life's Night Sky Cinema "Carnival Flicks" in Nuvali last Saturday, November 25, 2017. The fun-filled picnic night was held at the Lakeside Multi-purpose Field in Nuvali, Sta. Rosa. That part of Nuvali was a lonely place before but when Sky held the event, the place became another attraction in the area of Solenad and Nuvali.


It was surprising that although the venue was somewhat remote, hundreds of people flock to experience carnival booths and activities, interactive games, food booths, and prizes, as well as screenings of "Avatar" and "Pitch Perfect 2."


Avatar is perfect for the whole family to enjoy. The movie which is set in the far future follows Jake, a human tasked to explore the possibility of life on a distant planet called Pandora. He gets integrated with the Na'vi, creatures who inhabit the planet, as a spy, but as he gets to know their culture, he soon starts to question his loyalties and the true purpose of his mission.


Meanwhile, older kids and groups of friends are in for a laugh with "Pitch perfect 2," which continues the hilarious misadventures of the bellas, an all-girls acapella singing group led by Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hallee Steinfield, and Britanny Snow.


The event, free and open to the public; was made possible in cooperation with Vivo, Golden Fiesta, Belo Baby, Magnolia, Sky Direct, One Sky and Nuvali.

Does Lack Of Sleep Affect Performance And Damage Brain Cells?

by , in
Sleep is an essential part of life because it forms part of numerous physiological and psychological functions in our body, such as tissue repair, growth, consolidating memory and learning. A lack of sleep interferes with these functions.



The human body can withstand thirst and hunger more than the lack of sleep. A lack of sleep causes the body and mind to regress in a number of ways.

Not all people require the same hours of sleep, however, it has been proven that sleeping less than 5 hours for several consecutive nights, has various negative effects on the mind and body, in addition to those already known associated with diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases and chronic fatigue:
  1. Colds
Sleeping less than 7 hours per night raises the risk of catching a cold by three times, compared to those who slept about 8 hours.
  1. Functional dyspepsia
Pain in the upper abdomen, as well as gastrointestinal disorders, can be a symptom derived from lack of sleep.
  1. Melancholy and negativity.
According to research by the University of California, Berkeley and Harvard Medical School, directed by Matthew Walker, a lack of sleep causes the brain to reactivate 60% in the face of negative and disturbing images.
  1. Breast cancer
Lack of rest increases the chances of cancer returning in postmenopausal women, according to research from Western Reserve University (USA).
  1. Hyperhidrosis at night
The lack of sleep can bring a mismatch in body temperature so excessive sweating may occur at night caused by an improper functioning of the sweat glands, explains the dermatologist Nina Roos for elpais.com

Among the main causes of loss of sleep include excessive worry or stress, bad habits, sleep apnea, sleep disorders and depression, among others.

Therefore, if you want to have a good quality of sleep, it is important to change your current lifestyle, have a better diet, exercise and go to a specialized clinic for further studies to determine the causes of lack of sleep.

There’s no doubt that a lack of sleep can lead to a decrease in performance as well as damage to brain cells.



There are a few ways that you can ensure that you’re getting a good night’s sleep in order to prevent these negative side effects.

  • Essential Oils
The right oils can be used to calm your mind and ease you into sleep. 
https://www.americanhempoil.net is a great source of CBD oil that will help you to feel better rested each morning.
  • Exercise
At least thirty minutes of intense exercise a day will be enough to tire your body out to the point where you’ll find it easy to fall asleep once you are in bed.
  • Turn Off Technology
Try to avoid technology at least an hour before you go to bed. The lights on digital screens on phones, laptops, and televisions make it difficult for the brain to shut down and therefore prevents you from getting a good night’s sleep.

A guide to staying healthy this holiday season from Doc Pao

by , in
Doc. Paolo Bellosillo more commonly known as Doc Pao is a doctor for natural therapeutics who wishes to help people of all ages prevent diseases that wreak havoc in our communities such as chronic and degenerative diseases. Diabetes, Hypertension, Coronary Artery, Cardiac Insufficiency, Stroke, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Chronic Kidney Disease, Cancer of all forms.


Let's discover more of his ideas about health from this simple interview.

1. With the advent of new sicknesses sprouting left and right, how do you feel your field of study can help in alleviating or avoiding these sicknesses?

Diseases are caused not by genetic predisposition alone but by the imbalance in health brought about by excess toxins and nutritional deficiencies that one has, given by their lifestyle and environmental factors.  Prevention and early detection of these imbalances without any invasive procedures can help build a cascade of well being starting with one person to a family to a community all the way to a country.  Usually when symptoms manifest the diseases have already taken a toll. Hence for chronic and degenerative diseases best practices of medical systems can be applied but for acute once conventional medicine can work well with integrative therapies that allow people to feel like people when they are treated.  We just got to preserve the humanity of each person from early detection through treatment proper and post-treatment covering all aspects of life touching the areas of the Body, Mind, and Soul.  Going to the roots would help alleviate people from suffering. When symptoms manifest, disease would have already progressed by then. Why not prepare the bodies protection and defense mechanism to be resilient to internal and external threats.

In the Philippines, the inevitable rise of deaths due to heart, stroke, and cancer can very much be reduced by early detection and preventive management of care that looks at a person’s well being as a whole.

2.     What is the main thing that people can do to avoid getting sick in this day and age where everything that we eat has pesticide and is considered unhealthy?

Being healthy is a choice. First, make that choice. Know your Food sources, types of Marco Nutrients, proper portioning and utilize technologies that purify or cleanse your food. Toxin bioaccumulate in our food so best is to go for organic or partial. When organic food is not available technologies such as an ozonator may be used for detoxifying fish, beef, chicken, pork, and vegetables. It may also be used to purify The water we drink and air we breathe.  Proper detox uses Smart portioning, Smart Sourcing, Smart supplements and Smart technologies.  To know more about this you may seek advise at Health Is In Center. We’d be glad to advise you on your detox needs from Food-Environment-Self.

3.      What are three things that people need to have in their life to live a life of quality?

Peace and harmony of Body, Mind and Spirit wherein Holistic and Integrative specialists like me Cam assist them with.  Only Whole Medical Systems and Integrative Medicine whose understanding the said three planes. Healing is not summarized into a pill but the smooth balance between the three principal factors of life, it is a way of life.

4.      What are the top foods they need to avoid to lessen the possibility of becoming toxic or sick?

Acid forming food such as: Chips, fatty oily food usually seen in innards, French fries, usually the preserved meats, carbonated drinks, cakes, and pastries.  The key here is moderation in portioning and frequency.  Life is fair, we functional supplements and technologies can help reduce toxicity.

Way back then I enjoyed sisig, Crispy pata or even chicharon bulaklak and having seen their impacts on hardening and clogging of arteries, I opted to abstain but was able to appreciate them when I took them in moderation w specific supplements and technologies plus fitness Programs that allow me to detox.   It is no joke for blood vessels especially of the heart and brain to be clogged or stiff to trigger a heart attack or stroke.  Another key in moderation is know your limits.  We have natural ways and technological ways to determine stiffness and clogging of arteries.  This way we can avoid a trip to the emergency room or intensive care unit.

5.      What can you advise as an expert in your field that people do to be healthier, more positive, and have a life that can reach to their 80s?

Healing begins with a decision, get organized know your excess toxins and nutritional deficiencies through the help of preventative technological assessments. From there let's walk through a program that allows you to live well and long encompassing cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, respiratory and many more organ system needs by applying the best practices  that naturopathic, allopathic, homeopathic, ayurvedic and Chinese medical systems have to offer to ensure stability and growth from cellular to system needs.  Totality is the way to go. Integrative medicine would bring together another means to make you experience the best pairing of what east and west have to offer.  If what we do helps one lengthen or strengthen telomeres, battle or neutralize free radicals, prevent proliferation of pathogens that reflect positive ions, improve cell function and then help create stem cells or protect the DNA of your cells, then 80 would be the new average life expectancy for all.  Onward to 100 years.

6.      What’s your wish for mankind?

Peace and harmony to the hearts and minds of all, after all, we are one humanity. Celebrate life, love and laugh, for each to leave a legacy.
