Fuda Cancer Hospital and the Cryosurgery Alternative

Fuda Cancer Hospital and the Cryosurgery Alternative

Cancer diagnosis is like a death sentence hanging over a patient’s head. With the confirmation from the World Health Organization (WHO) that it is the leading cause of death worldwide, there is every reason to feel hopeless. In the heart of Guangzhou in China however, one hospital dares to challenge this reality. Read on and know more about Fuda Cancer Hospital and the cryosurgery alternative. Conventional treatments for cancer include surgery, chemo, and radiation therapy. While these options offer varying degrees of success in treating cancer patients, results are often limited. Fuda Cancer Hospital was established 50 years ago by physicians who are looking for better cancer treatments. Fuda Cancer Hospital In the words of Fuda Cancer Hospital Chief President Xu Kecheng, the  hospital’s goal is to provide patients with the most appropriate treatment.  As a cancer survivor himself, he hopes that the hospital doctors can provide the best-fit, least painful treatment to their patients. It is his belief that humans will eventually conquer cancer and a cure or at least a long-term productive survival with cancer is possible. Given the fact that the entire hospital is dedicated to the treatment of cancer disease and has over 100 doctors available round-the-clock, there is every reason to believe that this will happen. Team of Specialists Once a patient decides to be treated at Fuda, he or she gets the benefit of being diagnosed and treated by a team of physicians. In the typical hospital setting, patients get to consult with 1 or 2 specialists, usually with only a single doctor deciding on the treatment. At Fuda, test results and the...
Reflux Laryngitis: The Throat-Stomach Connection

Reflux Laryngitis: The Throat-Stomach Connection

On the onset of my hoarseness last month , I immediately concluded that it was because of the common cough and colds that I got. When the hoarseness persisted even after the regular course of antibiotics and several days of voice rest, I had a feeling that something was up. I had to do a double take however when the ENT specialist I consulted told me that the possible cause of my continued raspy and strained voice was stomach acid. How in heaven’s name can my hoarseness be caused by stomach issues? Here is my story. Reflux Laryngitis Having no voice for five days was quite alarming especially for me whose job uses the voice as the main instrument. I was literally on panic mode when my cough and colds abated but my hoarseness remained. I was thinking that I may have damaged my voice box in some way due to non-stop talking at work and at home. Then the doctor explained to me what reflux laryngitis is. Reflux laryngitis is the inflammation of the voice box due to stomach acid backing up into the esophagus. This stomach acid causes the irritation of the esophagus, larynx, and throat that can lead to chronic hoarseness. It has several possible causes although all boil down to lifestyle and dietary reasons. Treatment of Reflux Laryngitis The treatment of reflux laryngitis lies mainly in treating excessive production of stomach acid that wraps the vocal chords. Thus, recommended medications include antacids and heartburn medications. The rest is all about modifying specific lifestyle and dietary choices. People who suffer from reflux laryngitis should stay away...
Jumpstart Your Journey to Good Health

Jumpstart Your Journey to Good Health

January is always a busy month for our family. This is largely because of the bulk of activities my children have in school due to the annual celebration of the feast of their school’s patron saint. Parents would readily understand that when our children are busy, chances are, so are we, if not more. Journey to Good Health Starts Now There is the seemingly unending rehearsals for the Foundation Day presentation. Since it is impossible to totally do away with studies during this time, there are also assignments, projects, and group presentations to attend to. Needless to say, this is a particularly taxing time for everyone in the family. That is why January is always the right time for us to jumpstart our journey to good health. The beginning of the year is always an exciting time to start good habits and practices especially when it comes to the health aspect. This is in the hope that we can maintain these practices all throughout the year to minimize sickness, if not totally avoid it. Here are some ways we go about it. Tried-and-Tested Health Tips 1. Eat Healthy Most of us are familiar with the saying that “we are what we eat”. It is not a grandmother’s tale at all. We should try our best to get a balanced diet from all possible sources of nutrients such as meat, fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates, and others. The key to eating healthy is moderation and balance. 2.  Get Sleep and Rest Our bodies need to recover through sleep and rest to ensure continuous proper functioning. You are doing your body a great...
Discover the Secret of Snails through Farmstay

Discover the Secret of Snails through Farmstay

When it comes to beauty routine, snail slime does not readily come to mind. For Korean women however who are considered the “Olympians” of skin care, it holds one of the biggest beauty secrets ever discovered. Filipinas now have a chance to try it for themselves through Farmstay snail products. The Discovery of Snail Slime Studies show that snail slime contains a perfect balance of proteins, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants which offer a number of benefits including the stimulation of the production of elastin and collagen. While elastin is considered the “rubber band” of the skin with its ability to make skin “snap back” to its original shape after being stretched or contracted, collagen is a protein that keeps the skin strong and firm. The power of snail slime was accidentally discovered when Chilean farmers who were exporting snails to restaurants in Europe noticed that their hands became extremely soft while injuries and cuts on the skin quickly healed without becoming infected. The Company Behind Farmstay in the Philippines McDell Healthcare Products, Inc. is the exclusive importer and distributor of Farmstay products from Korea. It is a Filipino-owned company engaged in the manufacture, import, marketing, and distribution of beauty, health and wellness products. It is the company’s goal to bring Korea’s technical advances in skincare within reach of Filipinos. Korean cosmetic products have noticeably risen to the forefront of the international beauty scene, making the country a mecca in Asia for beauty innovation. This is evidenced by the fact most Koreans can boast of flawless complexion that defy aging. Farmstay Brand Ambassador The introduction of  new products requires a visual...
