Little did we know that as simple as tooth decay may lead to a HEART FAILURE.Let me discuss first what really tooth decay is.Many of us thought its just one of those little thingy in our teeth that when we brush, it will go away instantly.Tooth decay means the loss of the mineral from teeth.A disease where in a bacteria damages the hard tooth structure.There are two common termed used for tooth decay.

These are:
  1. CAVITY - a hole resulting to the tooth decay process Nice Grill Graphic
  2. CARIES - rotten, due to the tooth decay process
Untreated tooth decay may cause destruction,lead to different infections,tooth loss which is extremely painful,and should be removed and be replaced by a prosthesis.The plaque that is forming in our teeth contains bacteria that feed on the sugar for up to 15 to 2o minutes of eating in our mouth that makes acids,and attack after eating and during these time these acid distroy the tooth enamel that caused tooth decay.

Based from the researchers,there is a connection between a gum disease and a heart attack. The bacteria in dental plaque may cause blood clot,and may developed a heart attack, when they released in the blood stream. People who have periodontal disease are highly risk of heart diseases.

  • Brush your teeth at least 3x a day with a fluoride containing toothpaste Go To Home Page
  • Clean in between your teeth with a dental floss

  • Eat healthy foods and avoid carbohydrates such as candy's,chocolates and chips
  • Visit your dentist regularly for cleaning and oral exams.
Our health is very important more than anything.We cannot function well if we are not healthy.We should give importance to our body than material things.We should maintain a healthy living so we could have longer lives.We only have one life so we have to take good care of it..

When i gave birth to our first child,i am very excited to feed him my very own milk because i know for a fact that breastfeeding is far much more important than bottle feeding.Breast milk is best for babies as they said.As i start to feed him with my milk,my baby had a hard time sucking because my other nipple is retroverted so he had a hard time sucking it.We tried gentle vacuum suction but yet,its not working.Poor baby,he keeps on trying to suck my milk.As days go by,we pity our baby for he still want more and yet,just a small amount of milk coming out,so we went to our pedia and ask her other solution,then she said,we cant do anything but to use pump.Getting my milk through pump is so hard and painful but because i love our baby dearly,pain doesn't count to me anymore.All i want was to give him my very own milk.It went for 3 weeks feeding him naturally,but as the days go by,my milk is slowly going down.I tried so many supplement but it just stop.We went to our Pedia and ask her about it and she said by now, well give him formula milk.She told us to use these Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Infant Formula.But after a week of using it,one afternoon my baby kept on crying as if he felt something so painful.He has no fever,no signs of allergy's.What are we gonna do to make him stop crying?My sister ask me if my baby is on colic and kept on crying?Then i said yes,she said my baby might be Lactose Intolerance.I barely know what is lactose intolerance,so we went to our Pedia again and then here's what she said.
Lactose is the inability to digest lactose,a sugar found in milk and formula milk.It will occur when the baby does not have enough Lactase,an enzyme needed to digest lactose usually in cow's milk formula.The symptoms usually occurs 30 to 60 minutes after drinking milk..
Usually the behavior of Lactose intolerance are as follows :
  • the baby will cry inconsolably
  • they twist their body to ease the pain or discomfort
  • trouble in sleeping

With our Pediatrician's diagnosis,we were adviced to let our baby be fed with milk that are LACTOSE - FREE since he's Lactose intolerant.Soya milk and goats milk are also good to baby's who are Lactose intolerance.From then till now,my baby is doing good.He's going 5 months now,very healthy and bubbly. :-)


SUNDAY..SUNDAY..SUNDAY!!! :-) I really really love Sunday's and its my favorite day of the week..Its the day where we hear mass and its a family day..We love Sunday's for we can unwind,bond as a
family the whole day and really spend quality time together with our baby.Our typical Sunday starts having a coffee,eating yummy breakfast,playing with our baby,bath,visit my nephew aya aj at oro garden's and go to our fave mall. For us,aside from what id just say,we also call Sunday our Pizza day because my husband and i really love pizza. We cant trade Pizza with any food.Truly we can even eat 2!! :-) ..Its good thing one of our favorite Pizza parlor is having a promo in which if you have a Palm card,they will give you another box for free,then we can save more money heheheh!!!!isn't it great?For some families,they will go to the beach,visit some friends house,or simply by just staying home,watching some video or just lying in bed.
For now,i think me and my baby will just stay home, for my hubby had to go somewhere for a medical mission.I always ask him why do you have to go there?Its time for you to rest and be with us.(mumbling). But he just simply said,as much as i wanted to stay home honey but i also have commitments to people who cannot afford to go to a hospital to have them checked.This is a very small favor and i dont want to pass this moment.We are just so blessed because in our simple lifestyle we can afford to be checked anytime we want to,but this people can't.I know for sure theyr'e waiting for this moment, and i want to help them in my own little way.I cant let this missions passed..Then he kissed me and say well go out as soon as i get home.
Right at that very moment,i melted like ice.I exactly understand his point that not all his time are ours even sundays and for sure holidays too.I forgot i married a doctor.There was this instance also when were having our monthsary dinner when he had to live me at the restaurant because he had to go to the hospital for an emergency call.I felt sad but its ok i know there will be more monthsary's but there's only one life we got and he had to help him save that guy.I am so proud of my husband because as young as he is, he had help so many people unconditionally.
