     The year is still young and perfect for a fresh start. Have you made a resolution yet? If not, it might be a good idea to work on improving your health and well-being. “The beginning of the year is a time for resolutions for many Pinoys. Usually at the top of our resolution list is the pledge to become healthier and fit. That is why many are keen on dropping bad habits and starting a new diet or fitness regimen,” says Dr. Nicky Montoya, president of MediCard Philippines.

     I believe that dedication and commitment are the keys to have a healthy living. Make it a habit and do it for the rest of your life. You can start anytime but once you started on dropping the fats, sweets, nicotine, etc stay focus and be fit to inspire your family and friends.

How to Take Care of Your Liver from MediCard Philippines

Sunday, February 08, 2015

     Hello dearies! How's your health? Here's an interesting article from MediCard Philippines. When I received a copy from my email, I said to myself that I must share this. My sister-in-law's niece passed away last week because of liver cancer. She's just 10 years old and it's so heart-breaking that a child was diagnosed with a very horrible illness. I've heard stories of how the family bravely fought the battle. We need to open our minds and must be aware that lifestyle plays an important role in prolonging our lives. 

     The liver is the biggest and one of the vital internal organs in the body. It performs numerous important functions, including the filtration of blood from the digestive tract, detoxification of chemicals that enter the body, metabolization of fats, and regulation of hormones and blood sugar levels. 

     But despite its important role, the liver is also one of the most abused body organs. “Throughout a person’s lifetime, the liver is constantly engaged in a cycle of damage, inflammation and cell death. Under normal conditions, it can repair and renew itself. But if it is injured faster than it is repairing, the damage can be irreversible and may lead to organ failure,” explains Dr. Nicky Montoya, president of MediCard Philippines.
