I’m a Naturalista Mom!

Did you notice that a lot of organic weekend markets, natural beauty products, detox juices, vegetarian restaurants are popping up lately? In this age of modern science and technology, it’s a bit ironic that people are also going back to basics and reconnecting with Mother Nature. Ironic, indeed but going natural is the best thing that we can do to our health and our environment.

At the Ascof Lagundi Naturalista Moms Garden Affair held at The Earth Kitchen in Katipunan, we were shown plenty of ways to live a simple and natural way of living. Eat healthy and organic salads for a healthier body, grow your own garden to for a greener earth, and upcycle/recycle/repurpose old stuff to minimize waste.

Some ways to start a simple and natural lifestyle

When it comes to my family’s health, I’m at the paranoid side of the spectrum, I want to treat the illness even at the early signs of symptoms. “Lista” is what they call it.  Of course, I turn to natural remedies first before loading up on chemical-based medicines.

Another naturalista mom, Carmina Villaroel-Legaspi, graced the event together with her twins, Cassy and Mavy, as the latest endorsers of Ascof Lagundi.

It’s great to know that at the onset of cough, Pascual Laboratories made use of the healing properties of Lagundi leaf, or Vitex Negundo leaf, and came up with Ascof Lagundi. Ascof is a natural and organic remedy for cough that dissolves phlegm the safe and natural way. It is approved by Food and Drug Administration as a home remedy drug and herbal medicine. Since it’s natural, there’s no side effects and no risk of overdose.

When I was 8 months pregnant with Gwen, I became so sickly and one of my illnesses is cough. I really can’t sleep at night, knowing that I can’t just take any medicines because of my condition, I consulted my OB and she prescribed a lagundi-based cough syrup too. I was free from cough after taking it fo3 2 to 3 days.

Ascof comes in tablet, capsule, syrup and sugar-free variants. For more information, visit http://ascof.com.ph/ or like them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ASCOFLagundi

My Dream Job in a Glass of Jolly Cow Fresh Milk campaign

I love school events! When I was still studying, it’s the time when students and teachers gather for extra-curricular activities but with a special purpose, either for charities, environmental cause or for personal development. When an invite from Jolly Cow Fresh Milk through Nuffnang Philippines came, which is to cover their My Dream Job in a Glass of Fresh Milk campaign in Angelicum College in Quezon City, I was super excited because I’d like to see how other children enjoyed school events.

No downtimes with Playtex Gentle Glide tampons

I’ve been a sanitary napkin user ever since I got my period. Tampons were very alien to me and I got all the wrong information then. But post-pregnancy and some hormone-craziness, I tried Playtex Gentle Glide tampons for the solution to my problem. I’m thankful that I decided to give it a try, my life has never been the same.

Meyerf Travel Pack: a must when travelling

Do you carry medicines with you when travelling or just whenever you leave the house? I do. I just carry a few for hyperacidity, headaches and LBM, and I also include my vitamins. Whenever I’m travelling locally, I also bring pretty much the same medicines but it depends on how many number of days I’ll be away. For international trips, I also make sure to add some pain relievers (for pains due to too much walking) and also Bengay. I remember the last time we were in Singapore and my Aunt needed to buy pain relievers, turns out that it’s not available there so she was forced to settle with another brand which she’s not familiar with.

This is why it’s very important to bring a medicine kit when travelling, include that on your things-to-bring when packing. To make life easier, Meyerf, a Filipino pharma company, introduced Meyerf Travel Pack. It’s a small medicine kit that houses all the 6 essential medicines like paracetamol, ascorbic acid, loperamide, mefenamic acid and carbocisteine. Fortunately, Meyerf Travel Pack takes the guesswork out of bringing the essential medicines when travelling.

I once saw on TV that the factory where Hapee toothpastes were made employs hearing-impaired individuals. This made me support this brand years ago. And just like Nuffnang, Hapee is also first class when it comes to uplifting Filipino products and in supporting the community of our hearing-impaired Filipinos.
