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:

Be Beautiful Inside & Out with Myra® VitaSmooth and VitaWhite Facial Wash

Our skin plays a vital role in the overall health of our body. Maintaining healthy skin may be considered as a challenge especially if you’re exposed to various irritants such as smoke and dust and if you do not have a healthy lifestyle. There are, however, certain things that you can do to prevent early skin ageing and improve the health of your skin.

As a WAHM, I am not exposed to the usual external factors that can harm the skin  because I don’t go out that much especially on weekdays. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t make an effort to make sure that I am able to keep my skin healthy. Aside from a balanced diet and regular exercise, I also make sure that I make use of products that will help make my skin healthy and smooth. This is why I’m glad that there are products like Myra® VitaSmooth and VitaWhite Facial Wash. I am very particular with the products that I use on my skin, especially on my face mainly because I suffer from breakouts and skin irritation when I use facial washes that are not suitable for my skin.

Holistic skin care tip : Younger looking skin lasts longer when you take care of it inside & out. Take Myra capsule to renew damaged cells from the inside then apply Myra moisturizer after washing with Myra facial wash to nourish your skin.

I have been using both products alternately for the past few days now and I must say that both are indeed gentle to the skin and do not cause skin irritation. Although it will take several days more to see any noticeable effect, especially the whitening facial wash, I can see and feel the difference that these facial washes bring. I also like its smell, definitely mild and not offensive. I plan to use it with their moisturizer soon so that I can see the full effects of what Myra holistic care is all about.

Unilab: Developing a Culture of Excellence and Compassion

Undergoing surgery can be quite a frightening experience. As a patient, being well-prepared is important because it will have an impact not just on the procedure itself but also on how well one recovers from it. When I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism a few years ago and was told by my doctor that surgery is inevitable, I knew that I have to do my part to ensure that everything goes well. For someone like me who hasn’t been confined in a hospital before, undergoing a major surgery can be terrifying. What made it easier on my part is the fact that my surgeon is considered as one of the best in his field. He is very competent and has shown great compassion throughout the whole process. He was always ready to answer any questions that I may have and made sure that I have all the information that I need that will help me prepare for the surgery. The competence and genuine concern of the hospital staff has made my recovery an even more pleasant experience. Even when I was told that I had to undergo two more procedures (a complete thyroidectomy four months after the first surgery and an RAI Treatment a few weeks after) I was confident that everything will go well because I have highly competent and compassionate people on my side and that after all the treatments, I can only look forward to an improved health condition.

The whole experience has made me realize that as long as people practice excellence and compassion in anything that they do, whatever sector in society they may belong to, they can bring about a positive change to another person’s life and they can contribute greatly to the progress of the community. Having the core principles of excellence and compassion is what makes individuals and companies achieve sustainable success. This does not apply only to professionals  who hold important positions in major companies but also for any individual who want to create a positive impact and make life easier not just for himself or his immediate family but more importantly, to the people he interacts with.

When we became parents, my husband and I made sure that we will do everything we can to provide the love and care that our children need. We know that nurturing them properly will be instrumental in how well they will develop as individuals. We always make sure that their needs are met (this includes making sure that they receive proper nourishment and that they receive proper guidance during the early stages of their physical, mental and emotional development). I have read countless books and articles and have talked with older relatives and trusted friends that can provide us with sound parenting advice. I also keep myself updated on the latest in child care and nutrition as well as effective parenting techniques.

We still have a long way to go; we know that parenting is a continuously evolving process. What we know for sure is that as long as we continue to do our best and continue to hold on to the core values that we have, our desire of becoming ‘successful’ parents is possible.

The belief in the power of excellence of compassion can also be found in Unilab’s latest advocacy campaign and this is something that I would like to share with all of you. Why? Because I believe that we, Filipinos, as individuals and as a nation collectively have Husay and Malasakit (Excellence and Compassion) as our major core values. We always strive to do our best in everything that we do regardless of how trivial or significant we think they may be. Whatever role we play, be it an entrepreneur, an office employee, a healthcare provider, a teacher or a parent, we make sure that our excellence and compassion are evident.
