Keeping the Family Healthy Together with United Home Products

The health of my family has always been my priority as a mom. I always do what I can to make sure that no one gets sick. It can take such an emotional toll on me as mom whenever my husband or our kids get sick. But since the opportunity to get regular exercise doesn’t come as often as we would have wanted, I make sure that we make healthy food choices. I am aware that we don’t get all the nutrients we need from the food that we consume daily which is why we also have the supplements and medicines that we would need to keep each of us in tip top shape.

This is why, I’m glad that there’s Unilab’s United Home products. They have come up with some very interesting products that I’m sure, just like the previous ones they have, will benefit the entire family.

Here are some of their latest products that are surely worth checking out:

Fight Vitamin D Deficiency with Forti-D

Our family’s health is one of primary concerns as parents. We want to make sure that every member of the family achieves optimum health. Unfortunately, no matter how hard we try, there are instances wherein we do not get the nourishment that our body. This results to health concerns such as Vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin which we can acquire by eating foods that are naturally rich in Vitamin D such as beef liver, cheese and egg yolks. We can also get them from fortified foods such as milk orange juice and other dairy products such as yogurt.

The lack of Vitamin D has been linked to various health conditions such as the loss of bone density and can lead to other diseases such as osteoporosis and rickets in children.

According to studies however, 7 out of 10 Filipinos are Vitamin D deficient. This can be alarming especially since it can have a huge impact on the health of infants who need sufficient Vitamin D for calcium absorption.

If Vitamin D concentration in the mother’s breast milk is low, this may lead to Vitamin D deficiency in infants. Vitamin D deficiency in infants can cause ‘rickets, delayed motor development, muscle weakness, aches and pains, and fractures.’ ( see: http://raisingchildren.net.au/articles/vitamin_d.html/context/204)

How to Cope With An Illness

It can be incredibly stressful to be diagnosed with an illness, especially one that is life-threatening. Still, building up too much stress can put your life in even greater jeopardy. In order to keep your body in the best shape that it can be, it’s important to take your mind off things and alleviate some of that pressure from time to time. With that in mind, here are a few simple tips for anyone interested in relieving some stress to follow. While these tips can apply to virtually anyone, they’re especially worthwhile for those struggling with an illness.

Find Others Dealing With A Similar Problem

Feeling stressed or depressed can create a ripple effect throughout your personal life. Once you feel like you have no one else to turn to, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy until you really are alone. It doesn’t have to be that way though. If you can find others dealing with a similar problem to your own, then you can build off of this common ground and find that you don’t have to be alone anymore. If you’re not the type of person to regularly seek out others, then it might be worth looking into a large-scale event aimed at others like yourself.

Stay Active

Just because your body is sick doesn’t mean your motivation has to be. Physical activity can have a dramatic effect on your body and make it stronger and more resilient. Although there are plenty of posts on the subject of exercise, it’s worth mentioning that exercise has a very real impact on how the body handles stress and anxiety. Even if you can’t perform many complex movements due to your illness, even some light exercise can give your body the benefits that it craves.

While these tips won’t magically cure you, they can help you overcome any negative thoughts you might be having. Once you’ve replaced those negative thoughts with more positive ones, you might just find that you’re much stronger than you previously thought. Everyone deserves to discover their own inner strength, and you are no exception. Even if you think it’s impossible for your situation to improve, there’s no harm in at least giving these tips a shot. Whether it means you discover a new friendship, or develop a new workout routine, the rewards far outweigh any reservations you might have.
