We tend to complicate things when it comes to taking care of our health. A few simple steps can go a long way in taking care of our health, and one easy way of ensuring it is by drinking sufficient water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Not only does it clear your stomach, but it also goes a long way in reducing the risk of several diseases.

Firstly, it purifies the colon and improves the stomach’s chances to absorb nutrients properly. It is also one of the secrets behind glowing skin, as water removes the toxins from the blood. Drinking water also helps in losing weight.

The water treatment therapy boosts your metabolism. Drink about eight glasses of lukewarm water (two liters) on an average daily is recommended. You can start slowly and then gradually increase the water intake.

Health watch: FLOOD

Typhoon Ondoy like any other natural disasters that hit our country had left us with unforgettable and painful experiences. But there are valuable lessons we should remember from all of them…lessons to keep us all going…

…The destruction of lives and livelihood is usually caused by lack of preparedness – with or without calamity. The following are the things each family should prepare for before calamity happens.

Tips to observe with (or without) an impending typhoon.
  • Dispose your garbage properly so it won’t clog the drainage and become the source of infection.
  • Make sure that power lines are stable or firmly connected; shut down the main power if necessary.
  • Boil your drinking water for two minutes or more; save sterilized water. 
  • Store foods that are not easy to perish.
  • Complete vaccination for children.
  • Prepare a “first aid kit”, fire extinguisher, flashlight or candle, and battery-operated radio.
In the event of an evacuation:
  • Listen only to reports and reminders coming from the proper authorities.
  • Calmly follow all the reminders during evacuation.
  • Be careful not to step on open manholes and street gutter.
  • Avoid the path near or leading to the river.
  • Using a rope, head to the part where the current is coming from. Never loose your grip on the rope.
