The Two Kinds of Hepatitis


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The viral disease attacking the liver is called Hepatitis and there are two kinds of Hepatitis – Hepatitis A and B. The symptoms of both conditions are quite similar like fever onset, feeling fatigue, loss of appetite, frequent nausea, stomach pain, jaundice or yellowish skin and whites of eyes and dark-colored or coffee-like urine. The stool can also be dark colored especially with Hepatitis B.

Hepatitis A is highly infectious from the virus from the feces of the infected person that happens to contaminate the food taken. Hepatitis B can be transferred from one person to the other through exchange of bodily fluids like blood, saliva and sexual juices. An unborn baby can inherit the disease from the mother during birth.

Hep A Vaccine is used as preventive medication for Hepatitis A and Hep B Vaccine for Hepatitis B. Hepatitis A can’t be cured but the symptoms can be relieved by over-the-counter drugs or a general practitioner’s prescription like Paracetamol for fever or headaches and pain killer just to feel comfortable. Hepatitis B can be cleared just by treating the symptoms but if it becomes chronic, a liver specialist must be consulted who can prescribe antiviral medications.

Flu or Influenza can be Deadly

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Flu or Influenza is a common condition that occurs when there’s sudden climate change or especially during the winter in cold countries. It is a disease in the respiratory system attacking the lungs, nose and throat. Mild flu can be remedied with over the counter medications and traditional home care – but it can also divert into a serious illness and sometimes can be fatal.

You would recognize that a person has a flu when he is she is experiencing fever, coughing dry, throat is sore, having bad headaches, over-fatigued, aching all over the body and suffering from breathing difficulty because of stuffed nose. Bed rest is necessary for many days if the condition is severe.

Influenza is contagious through unprotected coughing or sneezing from the sick person to others in the same area. Infections also be transferred by germs from touching the nose and mouth of the infected individual – who unknowingly touch other people without thoroughly washing hands.

During influenza outbreak, it is best to resort to TIV or LAIV vaccination. Earlier Amantadine and Rimantadine are released and approved for its prevention and treatment of Influenza A – but resistance by other kinds of Influenza is now identified. Note that the Influenza virus causes flu and there are Types A, B and C Influenza that only a doctor can diagnose.

Don’t be Prone to Heat Stroke

welcome
By: Elena Grace Flores
The Philippines is a very humid country especially during the summer. Lately, environmental temperature ranges from 30 degrees centigrade to 42 degrees but the heat index or the heat felt by the body can rise up to 47 degrees centigrade or so!. This is why, we learned of some people just collapsed fatally under the sun. Actually, heat stroke can happen when the heat index reaches at least 40 degrees centigrade. Read this warning from the government:

DOH warns against heat stroke this summer

By: Leonard T. Pineda

Dr. Elvie Villalobos, DOH-6 Infectious Disease Cluster Head, said that heat stroke is the most severe form of heat illness when the body overheats and cannot cool down.

“The body cannot take off the excessive heat by sweating because of dehydration or the humid environment,” he said. http://news.pia.gov.ph/index.php?article=2421399362876


Do not under estimate the advice to drink a lot of water. It’s not just the normal eight glasses of water a day habit but a lot more water is needed by the body – because they can be easily evaporated due to the intense  heat. Do not prolong or even avoid direct sun exposure at this time. Cool your body down by showering often or apply a damp towel on your skin for a cooler feel! If symptoms of heat stroke is observed, apply the first aid discussed in the article before immediate hospital send off.

How to Handle your Third Eye


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
It is a fact that there are people who are very sensitive with what’s happening in their surroundings. They are mostly the ones with an opened third eye!.

If they are very vocal with their observations, others will perceive them as crazy, liars or just pooling their leg. However, based on personal experience – the third eye is real and people with it is like a Psychic for FREE. It’s up to you to close it totally or make it sharper, if you can’t handle it:

Experiences After The Third Eye Opening

What to expect after the third eye opening

Don’t be surprised that when you awaken your third eye, you’ll start getting unusual experiences. That especially has to do with your sight. When you’re tired and you’re about to sleep or you just relax and close your eyes, you may suddenly get all kinds of images in your mind’s eye.  http://simonarich.com/third-eye-opening


The third eye is a gift that must be nurtured for future use. Sensitive people are good counselors because they can feel the burden of an individual and can have visualizations on what to come for that person. Seeing or feeling what’s in store is a good guideline to give to a problematic individual. The blind guiding the blind can be disastrous right? So, talk to a person with a third eye if you want to feel better. It is important however to choose one who is good at heart and mind. Psychic for FREE is a good start for example. You will know this by how the community looks up or down to her or him and the down to earth lifestyle plus discipline.
