Re: Have you ever been to a masseuse?

I am lucky to have a regular massage session. A massage parlor situated 2 blocks away from our house opened last January and I was one of the lucky residents to have been given a promo card - pay for 10 sessions in advance and get a total of 15 sessions in all, no expiration. I grabbed that opportun...

Re: Coconut Oil

There is a new type of coconut oil here called VCO - virgin coconut oil. The name implies that the oil was extracted from the coconut flesh without passing thru heat. In other words, unlike the ordinary way of extracting oil by boiling the shredded coconut flesh, the VCO didn't use heat. I don't kno...

Re: My Best Trick for Tension Headaches!

We have here the Vicks Vaporub which is the equivalent of the peppermint oil. I agree that external medication like that peppermint oil is much better than ingesting a pill or tablet for a simple headache (or maybe even a nagging headache). One doctor said that paracetamol and analgesic may damage o...

Re: Stomach Pain After Eating Vegetables

With abdominal problems, you can ask my husband who is beset by gastritis and acid reflux since a long time ago. He is advised against eating string beans and water spinach. The internist said that my husband's digestive system is weak that it fails to digest hard vegetables like water spinach. In t...

Painful leg wound with pus

Have you experienced having a wound that developed pus? That happens usually to children who are careless because neglected wounds that are exposed to dirt can be aggravated by pus, that yellow fluid which makes the wound painful. So what to do when you see pus in a wound? Scrub it with a cotton tha...

Re: Tension headache

I sometimes have that kind of headache particularly after having a tense meeting in the office. When work pressures are great, I get this terrible headache that the doctor said is psychosomatic - related to the mind and not really physical in nature. The treatment or remedy is to cool down, relax an...

Re: Prickly Heat

This is not an insult so pardon me if you are offended. Prickly heat is the malady of children especially toddlers during summer. It is called prickly heat because the rashes appear due to excessive hot weather. The treatment we give to the children is corn starch. Yes, that ordinary corn starch in ...

Re: Depression and Pain

Depression aggravates the pain. When my husband's gastritis would attack without warning, he would be burping at first before feeling the abdominal pain that would sometimes deter him in physical activities. There are times that he just stays in bed to relax his body but his mind suffers depression....

Hot lemonade for common colds

The common cold is really common because it becomes prevalent during the rainy season. The sad part when you have a cold is the clogged nose which gives you difficulty in breathing especially at bedtime. If you have a mint vaporub or ointment, it can help by applying on the chest and the back to unc...

Re: Mouth Ulcers

Although it is not normal for children to have mouth ulcers, it is not a rarity either. We call mouth ulcers here as "singaw" which literally translates to sprout which means there is no clear reason for its appearance. But mouth ulcer is actually an irritation and dentists would say that ...
