Visited our Dearly Departed

It is the time of the year again where we visit the grave of our loved ones. This year, we went at the cemetery a day before November 1st. We don't want to join the masses/huge crowd and be in the middle of heavy traffic.

We cleaned the tombs, painted the writings on the tombstones and clean the surroundings yesterday and today, we just light a few candles and offered some prayers.

Pfizer World Osteoporosis Day 2015

Pfizer Strengthens Global Campaign on Bone Health, Calls on Filipinos to ‘Love Your Bones’

It is easy, or seemingly involuntary, to take things for granted when living in today’s fast-paced world. Health is almost secondary, as work is often given high priority. But to keep the body going, one needs food and nutrients for sustenance—the same goes for the need for strong bones to ensure continuous mobility and support.

Sadly, food and bone health, although considered vital life components, are still largely ignored, be it due to poor lifestyle or lack of awareness.

To help address this growing health problem, Pfizer Consumer Healthcare (PCH) partnered with the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) to spearhead the local celebration of World Osteoporosis Day (WOD) on October 20.

Aptly themed “Serve up Bone Strength,” WOD 2015 focuses on the importance of adopting a bone-healthy diet throughout a person’s lifetime to optimize bone strength. The campaign highlights the point that poor nutrition is one of the critical risk factors for developing bone-related diseases.

“It conveys the message that the first step in osteoporosis prevention begins in youth, when nutrition can help maximize our bone-building potential, and continues throughout life as we strive to maintain strong bones at older age,” explained IOF, the global organizer of WOD.
A key date in the bone, muscle, and joint community agenda, WOD is an occasion when people around the globe unite to put the spotlight on the immense burden caused by osteoporosis and other musculoskeletal diseases, and the actions that can be taken to prevent and treat them. It aims to put bone, muscle, and joint health on the global health agenda.

In the Philippines, PCH has remained a solid supporter of this global movement and has advocated various activities in the past to raise awareness on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease.

The Silent Disease

According to IOF, osteoporosis affects over 200 million people worldwide. Approximately one in three women and one in five men over the age of 50 will break a bone (also known as osteoporotic fracture) due to this silent disease.
Fractures, specifically hip fractures, can cause loss of function and independence with 40% of patients unable to walk independently; 60% requiring assistance a year later; 33% being totally dependent on or in a nursing home. Moreover, hip fractures cause the greatest morbidity with reported mortality rates up to 20-24% in the first year after a person suffers a hip fracture.

“We at Pfizer Consumer Healthcare support the IOF in its advocacy to inform the people about osteoporosis and the fact that it can be prevented,” says Dr. Egbert Dorado, senior medical manager at PCH. “We echo IOF’s key message: Adequate intake of the right nutrients contributes to bone health at all ages, and is a first step in osteoporosis prevention. For those who already have osteoporosis, a bone-healthy nutrition should be part of their treatment and rehabilitation program.”
Three of the major nutrients that help optimize bone health are: calcium, vitamin D, and protein, with recommended daily allowances varying throughout life.

“Regulating calcium levels in the body promotes better bone mass density (BMD), alongside improving muscle performance and balance. Taking a calcium supplement with adequate levels of Vitamin D3 also helps maximize calcium absorption,” adds Dr. Egbert.
While proper nutrition works, it is also important to have a holistic approach to osteoporosis prevention and management.
“It is indeed crucial to build strong bones early in life by following a healthy diet as it is the key ingredient in helping a person achieve peak bone mass, and maintaining it throughout life. But it is equally important to avoid other modifiable risk factors including sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and alcohol use,” explains Dr. Egbert.

Osteoporosis is an incurable disease, but controlling its risk factors and complying with treatment regimens where prescribed can ensure a mobile, independent, and fracture-free life.

A Short Trip to Nagtabon Beach

I was so thrilled that Nanay was finally home with us (from Manila). So I asked the whole family if they wanted to have some visit at the beach, and they said YES! Nagtabon Beach is a pretty awesome beach located at the west coast of Puerto Princesa City.

I've been to this place a few times, but purely work related. This time around, I was really excited because I'm with the fambam and my girls surely will have so much fun at this beach.

We arrived there a bit earlier and the rain was heavy with gusty wind. Nonetheless, the little girls all jump off the van and went ahead to the shore and play at the sand while it's raining.

The girls just played around at the shore and just wait for the heavy rain to stop before they went wet and wild at the sea. Big waves, as in big tall waves were present that time because of the gusty wind brought by storm Lando.

Mikyla and Moirah are definitely loving the beach, stayed there that long, only the heavy rain made them go off the beach/sand.

We brought a lot of food and drinks for the whole gang. I remember paying Php300.00 for the cottage and our entrance fee.

Grilling areas are available if you guys want to make some ihaw-ihaw there, just make sure you bring your own coal to fire. :)

They also have a spacious parking area there. The only down side of this beach resort is that they only have one comfort room/changing area, that is not really convenient if there are a lot of guests/visitors coming in 

None the less, we all enjoyed that short trip and will definitely be coming back with the rest of the family!
