Female sexual dysfunction: a silent burden

Women all over the world are suffering from a health condition that they themselves may not even be aware of.

This silent burden is called female sexual dysfunction (FSD), which pertains to a persistent, recurrent problem with sexual response, desire or orgasm.

FSD is often overlooked or ignored, largely because society still frowns upon the idea of women being in tune and in touch with their own bodies, especially regarding reproductive and sexual health.

MakatiMed Reveals What Kids with Autism Wish You Knew

What are the things children with autism wish you knew about them? Autism spectrum disorder (ASD, or simply “autism”) is a lifelong neurological and developmental disorder affecting how a person perceives the world and communicates with others. It is a “spectrum” because individuals with autism can exhibit a range of symptoms with varying degrees of intensity, including problems with verbal communication and social interaction, obsessive-compulsive behavior, and learning difficulties.

Sangobion aims for Blood-healthy Philippines

Everyone gets tired, feels weak, and becomes restless once in a while. But, for people with anemia, these are more or less what they experience every day. When one suffers from anemia, he gets tired easily from working, feels dizzy for no reason, and is generally overcome by fatigue.

Sangobion IRON+ (Ferrous Gluconate+Vitamins & Minerals) has always been serious about fighting iron deficiency anemia.

Sangobion aims for Blood-healthy Philippines


To accomplish this, Sangobion is launching a new campaign, Sulong Dugong Pinoy, and kicked it off with a media launch held recently.

The event featured speakers like the University of Sto. Tomas Hospital’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology chairman, Dr. Corazon Zaida N. Gamilla, who discussed the importance of healthy blood in supporting the functions of the body, the prevalence of anemia, its symptoms, and ways to prevent and treat it. Also present was Dr. Christie Monina Nalupta – Director of the Philippine Red Cross – National Blood Services, who graced the event to support Sangobion’s vision of a healthy blood nation.

Meanwhile, it was Ming Arroyo-Cunanan, Marketing Director of Merck (makers of Sangobion IRON+), who focused on the brand’s relevance and big plans.

“We have been helping men and women from across the country fight anemia with Sangobion, and I’m happy to say that we’ve been successful. That’s why we think that now is the time to start elevating the brand’s purpose. It’s more than just treating anemia, it’s about maintaining healthy blood to empower every Filipino. Our vision is a blood-healthy Philippines.” Cunanan said of Sangobion’s plans this year.

The launch’s biggest guest was none other than singer Sarah Geronimo, who has been part of the Sangobion family for two years now. A teaser for the new Sangobion TVC was also screened for the first time to a public audience, which got everyone even more excited.
