Summer season is upon us! This is the time to bask in the glorious rays of the sun and have fun- sunbathe at the beach, engage in outdoor sports, or just simply enjoy the balmy weather without the fear of rain disrupting our activities.
However, with temperatures soaring during these sweltering summer months, we all need to be aware when our bodies are trying to tell us we need a good dose of rehydration. Water comprises 70% of our bodies, and once this level decreases by even a small percentage, we become dehydrated. Here are some of the most common symptoms of dehydration to watch out for:
Cliche it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanay, inay, ‘nay, mama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.
There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care for the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority.
No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

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.
Makati Medical Center, the Philippines’ premier healthcare institution, reveals ways we can better understand how children with autism feel and how they communicate.

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.
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.
“There really are a lot of amazing things coming for Sangobion.” Sarah enthusiastically told the crowd. “I’m inviting everyone to join us sa Saturday, April 8 po, at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall for the Sulong Dugong Pinoy Blood Health Event sponsored by Sangobion of course, and supported po ng Philippine Red Cross.” Major activities like the official TVC premiere will take place, all to kickstart the Sangobion Sulong Dugong Pinoy campaign.

The love month does not just pertain to having a relationship with someone. It is not just about going out on a date or stressing on what to give to your partner or dreaming about what to receive in return. The love month should remind us of everything and everyone we love.
Our parents, siblings or friends who stuck with us through thick or thin should form part of this special month. Loving ourselves should not be set aside as well.
