Our self-healing power

By

IN SPITE of all the powerful inventions of man, including the super computers and other state-of-the-art electronic devices, they have not come close to matching the amazing super human body.

Health

By

CHRISTMAS may be behind us and the new year celebration yet to follow, but their combined physical effects, among others, will linger a while. Medically speaking, it is actually a time for “damage control” for those of us who have overindulged during the festivities.

Can one get AIDS from toilet seats?

By

HERE are questions from our readers: How long can one survive without food? This question reminds me of the thousands of victims of the monster typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) who were without food and water for days.

Exercise, vegetables: Anti-cancer

By

Antibiotics must be used properly where indicated. To use them for viral infections (like common colds or influenza), or for other conditions which they are not effective for anyway, or for illnesses where the bacteria are not sensitive to them, is not only a waste of money but outright dangerous. Microorganisms develop resistance to the antibiotics when exposed to them frequently. Eventually, the antibiotics will no longer be effective in fighting future infections in this particular person, thus dramatically increasing the risk to life at that point.

Modern DanceXercise

By

I coined the word DanceXercise in 1997 to denote a type of aerobic exercise in the form of dancing, either ballroom dancing or regular rock, salsa, swing, boogie, etc. executed to the tune of music, for cardiovascular fitness and mental health. Dance exercise, in all its forms, was popular in the late sixties. And the fad is back, in a fast modern tempo. It has gained wide acceptance, even in the medical community, when subsequent scientific data confirmed its beneficial effects on overall cardiovascular and general body fitness.

‘Oxygen bar’ — a scam !

By

“OXYGEN bars” are sprouting all over, especially at airports and some shopping malls, duping people into believing that extra oxygen is healthier for them.
