Lady Gaga’s Own Struggles

“In my life I go, ‘Oh my goodness, look at all these beautiful wonderful things that I have, I should be so happy,’ but you can’t help it if you wake up in the morning and you are so tired and you are so sad and you are so full of anxiety that you can barely think,” she says. Williams invited Gaga to participate after he read an open letter she issued through her Born This Way Foundation in which she revealed a sexual assault at 19 that left her with PTSD: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/7761127/lady-gaga-facetime-prince-william-mental-health

Not Hiding Anymore

Lady Gaga felt that people facing mental health challenges are “not hiding anymore.”.  William agrees to that but stresses to promote it more within the family. This is why he and his wife, Kate are hoping to encourage their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, to grow up feeling comfortable talking openly about their feelings. The Prince talks from first hand experience. His brother, Prince Harry was too affected by the death of their mother, Princess Diana.

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

DOH spokesman Eric Tayag explains that social media is a good way to connect to people, but it also has a negative effect. It causes depression through bashing – that Leni Robredo can attest. Some users are quite affected with it thus, giving them a hard time. Vulnerable individuals must be protected, especially the adolescents.

Leni Robredo’s Experience

Leni Robredo is one victim of online harassment. She has highlighted accessibility of social media as one easy channel for the emerging difficulties in dealing with cyber attacks against women, like her. Robredo said women that become easy targets of attacks using the internet as the platform for such humiliating attacks.



Depression Help

The DOH announces that they have installed a 24-hour suicide prevention hotline called the Hopeline Project. It could also be used to assess the actual situation in the Philippines.  The DOH launched the said project in September 2016 in conjunction with the World Health Organization and the Natasha Goulbourn Foundation. This is to provide a support system for those who are prone to suicidal thoughts.




Hotline

Initially, it is noted that most of the callers suffer from depression due to failed love life.  The hotline received 3,479 calls in 2016 and 605 of the callers showed signs of depression. 496 inquired about depression and suicide. The rest of the 479 callers admitted to experiencing stress and possible depression










Know Depression

Health Secretary Paulyn Ubial stressed that everyone should know the telltale signs of depression. It can happen to anyone. Detect depression by looking at a person closely. If he or she is no longer able to do daily tasks, then that’s an obvious sign of depression. If a person who usually takes a bath but stopped all of a sudden, that’s telling family members that he or she is depressed. Ubial said that it is really necessary for family members to be concerned with loved ones – to ensure that help is provided to those who are depressed because they can’t help themselves. The help of a psychiatrist is needed. Those who do not seek medical help despite the symptoms are the crazy ones.

masturbate





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

It’s not only the lawmakers who are currently under stressful circumstances now but also the public because of the political differences in congress and the senate. Issues like the death penalty, Davao death squad, and various corruptions uncovered are very negative. Positive vibes are needed. It may be a sensitive matter to talk about masturbation but if it helps then more people should know about its benefits contrary to the myths that we already know.

Benefits for Women

Masturbation for women can help prevent cervical infections and urinary tract infections through the cervix entrance that is part of the arousal process. It’s called “tenting”- the process of cervix stretch that releases the cervical mucous. This enhances fluid circulation that allows bacteria-contaminated cervical fluids to be flushed out. Masturbation can also lower risk of type-2 diabetes. It reduces insomnia after a hormonal and tension release. On top of that, it increases pelvic floor strength from contractions during orgasm.




Benefits for Men

Masturbation for men helps reduce the risk of prostate cancer. It allows the chance to flush out potential cancer-causing agents. Masturbation also strengthens the immune system because of the rise of cortisol levels. It also reduces depression because by doing so, an amount of endorphins in the bloodstream increases. Sexually transmitted infections or STIs are avoided through self-love. To maximize orgasms is not a problem. It reduces stress, reduces blood pressure, increases self-esteem, and reduces pain.




Mutual Benefits for Partners

There’s no risk of pregnancy or transmission of sexually transmitted infections for regular couples. Can avoid disappointments and performance anxiety due to the no emotional baggage act. In fact, two partners who pleasure themselves in the company of the other is a great and safe activity to incorporate into their sex life. They can learn about each other’s wants by demonstrating it.

When is Excessive Masturbation Harmful?

When one develops masturbation addiction or would only want to masturbate as a priority over family, morality, responsibility, and society that leads to failed relationships then the affected must seek medical or professional help at once.

How eHealth is Protected by Anti-Cybercrime Law – Not affected by Bongbong Marcos’ Amendment

eHealth





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Medical innovation can make the much-needed health care for Filipinos more affordable and convenient. This is through Telemedicine or eHealth as the terms used by the Department of Health. Prior to the eHealth law, the major concerns are already addressed through the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012. Then Senator Edgardo Angara is the author and sponsor of the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012. Bongbong Marcos also passed a bill to amend it but only the clause that pertains to libel.





Youtube video by; MicrosoftASIA
[VIDEO]: As part of the Data Culture Champions in Asia series, we share how health tech start-up, Ring MD, brings affordable health care to people by connecting patients and doctors around the world, 24/7.



Telemedicine or eHealth Protection

The section 4 of the Cybercrime Prevention Act stresses that these offenses over the internet are punishable by law:  Offenses against the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of computer data and systems. This includes illegal access. This pertains to the access of the whole or any part of a computer system without right. In a Telemedicine or eHealth system, the account of an individual is protected by a password that only the owner should know. So, medical and credit card data are safe.




No Lining Up at the Doctors’ Clinic for Check-up and Med Cert

Actual consultation and physical examination for minor illnesses are manageable through the eHealth system’s app like Ring MD. BPO employees can already spend their sick leave resting than spend the whole day to travel back and forth to the hospital and wait for hours at the clinic, just to secure the medical certificate required. The prescription is also available online.




Management of Chronic Diseases

Serious emergency cases and initial consultations for chronic diseases must be administered in hospitals. However, once the condition is stable, it can be managed at home as supervised by the chosen doctor accredited by Ring MD or other medical service providers enrolled in. Since this innovative health care is already here, it is best to select a physician that is available through the app. The selected doctor can then attend to individual’s needs through it at the comfort of one’s home.

Total Advantage of eHealth for Doctors and Patients

With eHealth, the doctors’ time availability is maximized. That means, more treatments are provided regardless of the location of both the physician and the patient. The system allows convenient and secure payment process using a credit card. Insurance coverage is also honored if the insurance provider is already a partner of the telemedicine provider. Soon, doctors who are not affiliated with this medical technology find themselves left behind by their peers. Channel inquiries through george@ring.md

Ferdinand Marcos on Healthcare Priority Agenda: Take Care of Filipino Hearts

Healthcare





By: Danilo Flores II

The next president of the Republic of the Philippines should put healthcare programs on top of the list of significant agenda. In the 2016 Presidential race, five contenders promised to ensure that all Filipinos must have a 100-percent Philhealth coverage. The present administration of President Digong aims to decongest the current specialty hospitals in Metro Manila. All provinces across the Philippines must at least have tertiary hospitals equipped with Intensive Care Units. If this is not possible in the current administration’s term, how about the next?

The Role of Local Government Units

As mandated by the Local Government Code of 1991, the Local Government Units must enjoy genuine and meaningful local autonomy to attain full development as self-reliant communities that contribute to the achievement of national goals. Features of the LGC include the relinquishing of responsibilities of the national government in favor of the government units to efficiently mobilize their own resources.




How Effective are the LGUs Delivering Healthcare Services?

Currently, the local government units in provincial, cities, municipalities down to barangay level has become inefficient in delivering basic healthcare services to the countryside. This can be primarily attributed to financial constraints. There is a great lack of budget for spending on infrastructure, purchase of medicines, ambulance and personnel. The sad reality is that LGU’s is not effective in providing healthcare services compared to the central government.




Alternative Source of Income

Hospitals in the provinces most likely become income generating projects of the Local Government Units. Such hospitals are now comparative to various private hospitals wherein patients could not be admitted without down payment. The LGU’s cannot afford to maintain the salaries and wages of the physicians, nurses, and staff without asking payments from the patients, defeating the very purpose of its creation.

Realistic Platform: Do it the Marcos Way

During the presidential race, the current administration pushed healthcare programs as one of its main platforms. The first six months of the term of President Digong proves that the President’s priority program is the war on drugs. Such advocacy has become controversial due to issues on extrajudicial killings. All Filipinos hope that he make good on his promise of establishing healthcare programs to uplift the overall health of the Filipino people. If not, at least the next president should make this a priority. Who’s that going to be? The current Vice President who is a neophyte in the executive level or the son, of the healthcare initiators in the country, Bongbong Marcos?
