I could still remember vividly that night when it happened. I was on a bike and had a collision with a dog on the road. The dog appeared be unharmed and ran away but I ended up be flung onto the road with bruises and swell on my right hand and right ankle. There was not much blood as I was wearing a long sleeves jacket and jeans on that night. Luckily I was not speeding and there were no oncoming cars or else I would be in heaven by now.

I was still able to walk although the weight of my big bike was right on top of my right ankle, and visited the nearest clinic. My face was all green from the mild shock I had when the doctor checked on my wounds. Bodily aches and pain crept in not long after that and the doctor prescribed Nurofen 400 to me as well as some Acriflavine to apply on the wound.

Everything was fine until I took the medication provided by the doctor. I thought being a bit drowsy was fine but it got worst. The world was twirling and swirling right in front of my eyes. My eyes became watery and itchy and my face was swollen. I tried to get up many times but was pinned down by the heaviness I felt on the head. It was like a living hell as I had to suffer for a whole day before the side effect went off.

I was again lucky to be alive. I found out through another doctor friend of mine that I had experienced an allergy reaction to NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and the culprit is ibuprofen which was in the Nurofen tablets that I had consumed. Can you imagine the danger of not knowing what was in the medicine when you are staying alone? From then onwards, I studied and worked closely with an allergist on the drugs that I am sensitive to and got the list engraved on a medical bracelet. I might have escaped death this time but I might not be so lucky the next time.

If you have history of severe reactions because of drug allergy or aspirin sensitivity, it is advisable that you wear one of the assortments of medical id bracelets easily available in the market. This is to ensure that in cases of emergencies, the attending personnel will be alerted on the medications that you are allergic to.

As I was mentioning earlier this week, I had my blood test taken today. Even before the results of my total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, total cholesterol/HDL-cholesterol ration and glucose analysis were to be out later this week, my blood pressure, body fat and body mass index readings were rather scary. Even when the medical assistant was reading the sphygmomanometer, she was practically looking at my whole body with a soft sigh.

Argghh… I hated that look in her eyes! True enough, she gave me a sharp stare and slapped me with the verdict, “You are overweight and your result won’t be great at all. When was the last time you ever go for some exercise or go on strict diet?” What? Exercise? Where do I have the time when I have piles of unfinished work lining on my table every single day? I do not even have time to walk to the pantry to get myself some coffee to freshen up a bit.

I have tried going through many diet exercises throughout my life but ended up heavier than before. Why? It is because I love to eat and food had always ruined my determination to lose some weights. I wanted to try out the many kinds of diet pills in the market but stopped myself from buying without proper dietitian’s advice. I think I better make an appointment with a dietitian soon to find out more on safe diet pills.

In the mean time, I will have to wait for my blood test results to be out at the end of this weekend before I can consult a dietitian. I hope that my sodium, potassium, urea, creatinine, urine FEME and specific gravity results would also be stable.

I am getting panicky to go for my blood test this weekend. After getting the last test result, my results were so poor that I could just collapse anytime with the bad cholesterol overpowering my good cholesterol levels. My body index and weight were blah blah blah. Do I need to say some more? In short, I am getting too fat and not watching over my diet properly.

Through research, a normal person should have a balance diet which consists of about 55% of carbohydrate, 30% of fat and 15% of protein. Anything that exceeded that percentage will eventually make you a walking time bomb. A high consumption of fatty food will cause potential heart disease and cancer. A high protein will cause the body to lose calcium, thus making the bones brittle prone to accidents.

Many people recommended Phentermine without a prescription by a certified dietitian. The problem with this product is that it is too costly during this economy dilemma. On top of that the product is rather hard to get in the market. Maybe I should consider looking into the possibilities of obtaining more reasonable products such as Orovo, Nuphedragen, Noxycut, 7-DFBX, CurvaTrim, HydroxyCut, AmbiSlim PM, TrimSpa X32, 72Hr Slimming Pill or LipoSeduction.

I have not tested out the products myself but I guessed that if those who had tried out the products and got some improvements out of them, should know if those products work well or not.

It has been said that too much of anything is bad to a person physically and mentally. I would not agree less to that statement. Did you ever realize that whatever we consume or do, will subsequently affect our body and mind, if taken or done excessively?

Take the case of obesity. Munching, chomping, biting into food practically every minute of the day is healthy? If a person knew how to limit his daily food consumption, he would not end up as an obese. Subsequently, there would be lesser obese related illness coming in and ruin his whole health system.

What about the importance of a family? If a person knew how to plan his life without letting his over success stricken thoughts controlling over his mind and body, he would have a happier family without them worrying about ignorance. This has happened to a large number of rich families where the parents totally do not have any time for their children.

What about having some time off for leisure purposes? It is healthy to go for some physically sports but straining the body to go beyond the limit might not be good news to the heart. Some might consider trying out their skills in some cyber games but I have encountered quite a number that are so addicted to playing the games that they would ignore their duties. Do you think that sitting in front of a computer and staring at the screen for a log period of time will be good to the eyes? What more ignoring the stipulated hours to have their main meals.

The worst of the many addictions still fall into the drugs category. It is believe that 5% of the world’s population consumes illicit drugs per year. Drugs are created for therapeutic and medical applications but many have abused them to satisfy their sensual pleasures. It was also known that some clubs in certain countries even legalize its usage, if taken in certain stipulated amount approved by the government. Do you think that a person will behave and abide to the law if drugs are sold so freely? Do you even think setting up a drug treatment center will be enough in treating and reducing the quantity of addicts then? I would say no.

Addiction is a witch to the body, a devil to the mind, a thief to the pocket and a self murderer to a person’s health and happiness. There is nothing great about being addicted to anything except for the physical and moral degradation of a person.

Have you heard about the tissue healing value of the Snakehead Murrel (Channa striatus or Ikan Haruan)? Many states in the USA and countries like Australia prohibited the breeding of the Snakeheads as they can become invasive species and cause ecological damage as they are top-level predators. But in many of the Asian and African countries, they are bred as a valuable food and medical source. The fish has been traditionally used in Asian cooking for those post pregnancy and post operation patients as it has miraculous healing effects for wounds.

A few years back, a local professor found 4 lipo-protein compounds, complex molecules containing amino and fatty acids that are responsible for wound healing. When absorbed into our body system, the lipo-proteins will react to the broken human tissue and catalyze fibroblast or scar tissue development. Ongoing researches are still being done to fine tune the dosage and extract the lipo-proteins for pharmaceutical development. Surprisingly, these lipo-proteins can only be found in wild snakeheads as aqua-cultured ones were found to be not so effective.

Let us hope that by working closely with a clinical laboratory service company, an exact formula can be developed soon to help those with wound healing difficulty especially those diabetic and cancer patients.
