High-Resolution Ultrasounds are Beneficial For Doctors and Patients

Scheduling an ultrasound is necessary for detecting an illness or injury. The ultrasound releases sound waves into the human body using a transducer. The sound waves are inaudible to the human ear, and they bounce back to give doctors a glance of the soft tissues and organs. A patient may have an ultrasound performed to detect a problem in areas such as the heart, liver, abdomen, kidney or gallbladder.

There are many clinics and hospitals that offer a high resolution ultrasound to get an accurate reading. Facilities use high quality equipment such as the Acuson X300 ultrasound system to perform the ultrasound. Doctors and patients can both benefit from a high-resolution ultrasound.

A high-resolution ultrasound creates a detailed image of the human body. Doctors can clearly see what is happening with a specific organ or tissue, and patients do not have to undergo another ultrasound due to unclear results. The doctor will be able to detect conditions such as a blockage of the arteries or tumor on the kidney. A high-resolution ultrasound also allows the doctor to determine if a tumor is cancerous or benign. Once doctors make an accurate diagnosis, they can figure out the best treatment for the condition.

It is no secret that patients are nervous about the discomfort and radiation that comes with diagnostic tests. However, a high-resolution ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure. It starts with patients laying on a padded table with the specific area exposed. The physician will cover the area in a warm gel and carefully press the transducer against the skin. Patients do not have to worry about needles or exposure to radiation during the procedure.

Patients may also feel worried about the actual injury or condition. The accurate reading gives them the answers they have needed for days, and they can start focusing on the treatment and recovery.

There are many facilities that provide a reading within 24 hours of the ultrasound, which means patients only have to wait a day for their results. In the case of an emergency, the facility may provide results within one hour of the ultrasound. The quick results allow physicians to act quickly to treat the condition.

A high-resolution ultrasound is beneficial for doctors and their patients. Doctors receive a clear view of the body to make an accurate diagnosis. Patients finally receive answers regarding their condition.

How to Get the Home You’ve Always Dreamed Of

If you’re like most people, you’ve got a dream home somewhere in the back of your mind. Maybe the house you’re living in currently doesn’t really fit the bill though. That doesn’t mean that you need to start checking for sale listings.

The fact is that almost any house you buy will require some changes to become the dream home you’ve always wanted. That’s going to be doubly true if you’ve got exacting tastes and know exactly what you want.

The good news is that renovations can make almost anything possible. You may need to set aside some time and money to make them, but getting the home you’ve always wanted could be within reach.

Use these basic home renovation tips to help you get there.

Plan Your Renovation

Before you can really do anything to improve your home, you’re going to need to some serious planning. While this probably won’t be the most enjoyable or rewarding part of the process, it is essential for a successful renovation job.

Start by taking a look around your home and figuring out what you can do to improve the house as it is. Do you need an extra bedroom or an office? Does the kitchen need to be updated and taken out of the 1980s? Whatever you and your home needs most is likely where you should start your renovation project.

When you plan your renovation, you also need to sit down and determine your budget. Without an idea of how much you can afford to spend and on what time table, the job won’t go efficiently.

Get Multiple Quotes

You can  get a free quote today from a variety of contractors, but if you’re going to be smart about how you spend your money, you’ll get more than one. You’ll also want to see work any contractor you’re interviewing has done in the past.

Make a Work Schedule

A huge part of taking on a home renovation job is figuring out how and when you can do what you need to do to improve your home. Your contractor may not lay out a clear work schedule unless you ask though.

Make sure you ask for a clear calendar of when work will be started and finished. Updates along the way regarding progress can ensure that you’ll be around to supervise the job and check up on how everything is going.

After all, it is your home.

Through the Years with Tupperware

I have come across this Tupperware Blog Contest in Mommy Bloggers Philippines so I am making my entry for the  “Tupperware@50 Share Your Fondest Tupperware Memory Blog Contest” .

We are Tupperware lovers, my mom used to be a Tupperware dealer. She used to host Tupperware parties in our home when I was little and sometimes the parties happened during my birthday. Here is a photo of me when I was 5 years old. Yes, it was taken during a Tupperware Party. I accidentally saw this photo when I was cleaning my closet and I took a photo of it to post for #TBT (Throwback Thursday).

img_7080
Yes, that BIG DARK RED Tupperware item under the table is still alive today, after 26 years, we are still using it.

My mom told me that she used to store my pretty clothes inside it but when I had my own room and own cabinet, she used this Tupperware to put our stock of brown sugar to keep the ants from eating it.

I am now 31 years old, but I can still remember how Tupperware Parties used to be so great, alive, full of fun and how I wish the management could do that again. Giving prizes to the guests who answers different trivia questions. Meet new and old friends along the way.

Tupperware Brands PH will always be a part of our lives, this year they are celebrating their 50th year anniversary and I know that they have touched many Filipino lives, not only mine.

Jolly Pinoy Collectibles

I saw an advertisement about the Jolly Pinoy Collectibles so I immediately went to a Jollibee Store to buy the complete set. Each Jolly Pinoy Collectible is worth 150php when you order one value meal. So I paid 750php for the 5 Jolly Pinoy Collectibles aside from ordering and paying for 5 Jollibee Value Meals.

These are the 5 Jolly Pinoy Collectibles:

  • Jollibee Jeepney
  • Hetty Vinta Getaway
  • Popo Carabao Farm
  • Twirlie Pinoy Sorbetes
  • Yum Kalesa Fun

img_6517

The items are so Pinoy and these items are perfect for every Filipino Home. Every Filipino child will always remember Manong Sorbetes who sells ice cream on the road. Every Filipino had the ride of his life in a Kalesa or in a Jeepney. The Carabao will always be an example of a hardworking Filipino farmer/worker. And of course the colorful vinta will always reminds us the colorful festival in Zamboanga.

G-Shock on SALE

I bought a G Shock Digital Watch for my brother at Time Depot last August as a birthday gift. My little brother has been borrowing my G Shock watch because he liked it so much. So when I saw an online ad that Time Depot has a SALE for selected G Shock Watches I immediately visit their stores and bought 3. Yes, 3 watches. I initially thought of buying only one for my brother but when I saw that they have cute watches for kids too, I bought 2 without hesitation.

I bought a camo digital G Shock watch for my brother. It look perfect on him, don’t you think?

Then I chose these 2 watches for my 2 kids.

Commonwealth Insurance Company

When you are looking for a Car Insurance, what are the things you need to consider? As for me, I see to it that the company is reliable. Reliable in the sense that they are responsible and they are true to their words of promise, that they will help me in times of need. Before I continue, I want to be clear, this is not a PAID POST/SPONSORED POST, I am a satisfied CUSTOMER/CLIENT of Commonwealth Insurance Company, Valencia Bukidnon branch.

My family owns vehicles that is why I know how car insurances works and I know what car insurance to get. When you own a car, you need to have a comprehensive insurance, though it is not required in registering your car, it is necessary because it will be your safety net in case you meet an accident. A comprehensive insurance covers your car’s own damage, bodily injury to the passengers, property damage and sometimes even the acts of nature.

What I like most about Commonwealth Insurance Company is that they have good customer relations and they are approachable. Every time our vehicles met an accident, they would help us immediately. After all the requirements are submitted, our vehicle will be on its way to the shop and will be fixed in no time.

Commonwealth Insurance Company have paid us more than 5 times already. So I am a satisfied client of them, I highly recommend it to my friends especially those who are near here. Commonwealth Insurance Company has many branches all around the Philippines, just in case you want to try this company, look for the nearest office near you.

The Commonwealth Insurance Company I am with is located in Sayre Hiway, Hagkol, Valencia City Bukidnon, contact number 088-828-4485/088-828-6416.

Military Significant Other

Being a military wife is not easy,
We are our husband’s strength,
We are the women behind every soldier’s success.

We raise our children alone,
We only get to spend 2 – 15 days RNR and a 10 days Christmas Break every year.
We have to travel long and far to visit our husband at their 24/7 work.

We are made of bricks and stone to stand the test of time.
We have to give up a lot and sacrifice more for our nation to be at peace and for our fellow men to be safe.

Indian Inspired Fashion Trends You’ll Love

We all know that fashion trends come and go. What’s in today can be totally out by next season. Perhaps that’s why some fashion experts advise maintaining a collection of neutrals and classic pieces in your wardrobe. That advice is all well and good. However, if you prefer fashion with color and personality, you’re going to love the newest Indian inspired fashion trends. Inspiration from India comes and goes throughout the global fashion world. Perhaps that is because so many people are attracted to the culture and the beautiful expression it allows. Take a look at these Indian inspired fashion trends and prepare to find ways to incorporate them into your look.

Gold Accessories

Gold is an important cultural and status symbol in India. It plays a large role in weddings. The more gold, the wealthier a family is said to be. You don’t have to be getting married to add Indian inspired touches of gold to your wardrobe, nor should you go overboard. One statement piece such as a necklace with large gold discs or a wide gold bangle will do nicely.

The Sari

When you think of India, you may picture women wrapped in their rich, colorful garbs. This wraparound fabric is known as a sari and is a piece that is symbolic of womanhood. Saris aren’t worn by children. When a young woman has demonstrated the knowledge and understanding of womanhood, she may begin to don the sari. A more casual piece is the kurta, which is bright tunic that is often adorned with embellishments. Such a tunic can be modernized by pairing it with jeans for a fun night on the town.

Mehndi

Mehndi, often more commonly known as henna, is a plant-based dye that is used in Indian to ornately decorate the hands, arms and feet of women. These decorations are usually reserved for special occasions or festivals such as Holi or Diwali. Using bridal mehndi designs has become popular outside of India as a form of self-expression and decoration.

These are simply a few examples of ways you can incorporate Indian inspired looks into your everyday style. Sites like Craftsvilla can be accessed online to find such pieces to add to your collection. Have fun with the looks, but do take care to remain respectful of the culture by wearing them tastefully and in moderation.

Davao celebrates Financial Freedom

ABS InterviewAs a fitting start to the new year, the “#LiveFreePH Freedom Tour” made a stop in Davao City to continue its financial freedom rally. From January 24 to 30, Davaoenos were treated to educational booths, exciting promos, and a free concert featuring Sun Life father-son ambassadors Piolo and Inigo Pascual.
Beginning the journey
A string of activities guided participants to begin their own #LiveFreePH journey. In a bold move, they declared their vision of financial freedom with the “Live Free Freedom Wall.” Then they looked at their current situation, shared their outlook about the future, and pledged support to a community in need through BLISS or “Brighter Life Index: Social Sentiment.” And by joining the “Sun CeleBright” promo, they won free trips to their chosen destinations!
But what made the #LiveFreePH Tour brighter were the Sun Life advisors ready to help those who want to jumpstart their financial freedom journey. Some were so inspired that they chose to become financial advisors themselves.
Pursuing the mission
In front of a jubilant and captivated crowd, the “Freedom Celebration” concert headlined by Piolo and Inigo amplified the mission of financial independence for everyone. Aside from belting his signature hits, Piolo serenaded the winners of the hugely popular “Selfie with Papa P” – where longtime fans get to meet their idol and take home a photo souvenir. Inigo also showed off his dance moves and energized the night with today’s popular hits.

“We want Filipinos to believe that a brighter future is possible. We want them to be inspired to take on their own path towards financial freedom. And that they can start this meaningful journey with the help of our financial advisors,” said Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa. The #LiveFreePH Freedom Tour kicked off last year with stops in Pampanga and Iloilo.

To end the event Papa P serenaded the lucky ladies who shone the brightest in the Selfie with Papa P contest.
