DOES SCIENCE BASED NUTRITION WORKS FOR YOUR DIETARY MANAGEMENT?

May 22, 2019 1 Comments

Whether I'm a Client or a Health Professional, we both know and heard about this before. We both love science because its speaks for truth because science typically made out from researches to be evidences or theories that proves its point and effectiveness. But does it really works?

Yes, but we have to consider other things. This Science Evidence Based are just one tool of our tool box in providing a correlation for our final diagnosis. We can use it as basis or as our reference to narrow down the true diagnosis. But we still have to be precise about it and shouldn't just think theoretically. This means, and we always emphasized it that We make it more personalized and everyone is not the same. We may have common factors but the diagnosis will always about how you tell us about yourself, based from your laboratory examination and other clinical observation.

Science Based Nutrition help us support the diagnosis and also help us build a partial plan for your dietary management. But of course, the last step will always about personal preferences, body responses and clinical observation based from YOU.

MIZDEE RX NOTES:

Nowadays, everyone relay on internet with their health and undeniably, even professional posted their researches abstract, their theoretical prescription and other generalized information that may or may not truly effective to you. Yes, you can read it too and it might work BUT we might miss something about your health because you didn't undergo a proper observation. 

What you have read from blogs or e-magazines will always have disclaimers that emphasized the needs for professional consultation for other health concerns and for better health management. So before you try to do about your health, please always ask for assistance, please ask for another opinion and let it be a Health Professional.

Does Snacking during Screen Time is bad to your Health?

May 07, 2019 3 Comments

We all do love to eat while watching tv, during movies, playing video games or just simply surfing your net. We all done that. But does is really a bad thing?

If we talk about mindful eating, when we do eat while doing something else, we become unaware of how much we have eating or even delay your feeling of fullness. You are out of focus and it really affects your eating pattern. In simplest term, You are distracted, you tend to eat slow which delay your satiety, and you tend to eat more unknowingly. 

Now if we discuss about Nutrition, if we talk about snacks, it is usually high caloric foods, fatty, high in refine sugar because we always wanted something sweet, tasting during a break. Who doesn't want that right? And since we take those kind of food, your body digest foods that are easily digested, and takes an hour or less to be fully digest and you feel hungry again. All you get are nothing but fats, oil, and sugar.

This is a cliche but still it is true. Anything Excess or Deficient are bad. If we try to understand what gone wrong when we tend to eat snacks during screen time (like during watching movies or tv, playing video games or simply browsing the net), i'll narrow it down to 2 specific thing.

1. Eating while Doing Something else will not satisfy your tummy.
2. Snacks are good but the kind of snacks you take will gives a different story.

MIZDEE RX NOTES:

Yes, snacks and screen time is a common leisure time for everyone that if we didn't do it properly or in a better way, it can affect our health. 

Why? Because (1) You will gain weight because you tend to eat more during this time, weight matter a lot or it is high risk factor for any cardiovascular diseases. (2) You take less nutrient-dense food and doesn't follow proper portioning and this affect the total body function needed by your body.

What you can do? You have to manage your time. Take some break and focus first with your eating if its meal time already. If you don't have a choice like in offices which we have the Working Break, Try to portion your snack or food first, and choose a something less fatty, oily and refine sugar. We have modified snacks that are high in fiber that satisfy your tummy.

Hope this help you understand a lot.

Leaders Insolution Facial Mask Review

May 07, 2019 1 Comments

As I always said to you guys, I currently have some issue with my face. I have some acne break out for the past few months. This is due to my hormonal imbalance and one piece of advice I can share with you is to take good care of body and skin, internally and externally. Meaning resort with (1) Proper Healthy Diet and (2) Skin Care Routine that suits you well.

Now Just a month ago, I be able to get these two face mask to try on. These are from Leaders Insolution x Sample Room PH free sample pack I ordered. Leaders Insolution is well-known brand and dermatologist approved skin care - face mask from Korea which address different skin problem. Their mask is made from a thin silk cellulose mask that I personally like.

To learn more about these products, let's start with introducing it one by one. 


First is the Juicy Mojito Clearing Mask which helps the skin to be tighter and smoother. It is made with (1) Lime Peel Extract that have a lot of antioxidants that helps you to get rid of dead skin and keep your skin healthy. It also have the (2) Peppermint Leaf Extract that gives you a cooling effect and then open your pores to easily remove your excess sebum and to moisturized you skin completely.

If compare to the other mask, I like this better because It does help my skin to become smoother and tighter. It has a good aroma and indeed gives me the cooling effect while I have the mask and after I use it. It really feel fresh after I use it. Though I only try it once,  I already felt my skin was refresh and smoother.


The next mask is the Juicy Pina Colada Bright Mask which also made with fermented coconut gel sheet with the two main ingredients which are (1) Pineapple Fruit Extract, and (2) Coconut Water.

The Pineapple Fruit Extract is for keeping the skin brighter while the Coconut Water is for keeping your skin well-moisturized. 

For this mask, It helps my skin to be smoother though the mask doesn't gives me the glow I want but it turn to be a bit oily, heavy to my face and sticky. I think it is because of the two ingredient which is highly form with oil (Coconut Water and the Coconut Gel). I also felt a tingling feeling while I have the mask put on but it didn't feel much of its cooling effect.


These are actual photos while I use the mask and after I use the mask. The one on the left side photos are for the Mojito Clearing Mask while the other half of the collage is with the Pina Colada Bright Mask.

FINAL VERDICT:

I only use the mask once a week and first use the Mojito Mask first and after a week I tried the Pina Colada Mask. Between the two mask, I like the cooling effect and result I got from the Mojito Mask. It is indeed very refreshing and I felt my skin become tighter. 

As for the Mask Composition, I like it very well since it fits me and it very sticky / firmly attached to your skin once you put it on. Though for the Pina Colada Mask, if you have oily skin like me, I don't think it will be good for you because it is heavy and sticky. 

MIZDEE RX NOTES:

Face Mask are just one way of rejuvenating your skin and just a part of your daily routine in which you can do at least once or twice a week. 

Mask have different ingredients and mask formulation and the best way to see its effectiveness is by trying it on or by reading a review about it. You have to understand the product first before you try it on, especially if you have sensitive skin. 

Also, Skin must be taken care internally as well, which mean you have to take care your diet to see better result for your skin. 

Reminder: We all have different skin type so remember that what works with me might not work with you. Consult a Health Professional as well that can help you understand your skin.

Thank you and Hope you Learn something Today!

Expectation Versus Reality (Clinical / Hospital Dietitian Version)

April 08, 2019 1 Comments

As a Normal Human Being, we tend to expect things from the others because our instincts say so, or because of our easy judgment of the person or a thing which we barely know.

Just for a Fun Facts, I made this Expectation Versus Reality about Clinical or Hospital Dietitian here in the Philippines. It is based from the things I personally experience or from a word of a mouth. I will also share with you my thoughts about this and explain to you a bit further about WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE REALLY DO?

But before we jump to our main topic, let me first define to you the Role of the Clinical or Hospital Dietitian. 

Dietitians who works at the hospital are called Hospital Dietitian that can specialize in Foodservice Dietitian, Therapeutic Dietitian or Clinical Dietitian. Its role also change with the numbers of patients being taken care of. We depend to the Bed Capacity of the Hospital we are working. We do multitasking all the time and have duo-role, which is sometime more prominent if you work with Primary to Secondary Hospital. What we do is really about Operating the Foodservice Business and at the same time do Patient Profiling through Nutrition Care Process.

As for this topic, I will discuss the Hospital Dietitian / Clinical Dietitian in a Tertiary Level Hospital with a bed capacity of 120 to 150.

EXPECTATION: CONTROLS COST AND FOOD WASTAGE

Photo Courtesy to http://www.ecosmartworld.com

Yes, It is true that we have to do food costing and monitor our food wastage but we don't really focus much in this field. Most of the time, we tend to forget this part especially if we have work loads and deadlines coming up. We somehow do short term solution but we really don't dig deeper to state long term solution for this because definitely we are focus with some other things.

And that other thing that we focus with is, (1) the dietary overall operation from procurement process, deliveries, food production and meal distribution. (2) We focus on planning our Cycle Menu, Standardized each Recipes and even get involve in Market Order to actual purchasing of items for an open market set up.

In short, Dietitian are expected to control the food costs and food wastage in the department but in reality, we mainly focus in fixing previous errors and re-organized the overall system in our department which honestly will take time again.

EXPECTATION: GIVE DIETARY INSTRUCTION WITH CLOSE MONITORING OF THE PATIENTS' DIETARY PROGRESS

photo courtesy to https://www.hnfe.vt.edu

Giving quality to our work is something we really try to do but there are too many hindrances. (1) Patients commitment is always a struggle and (2) We are not well-equipped with the monitoring procedures.

We can always gives our best to have quality instruction to patients and we know how important nutrition is to have optimal health. We know that sometimes, foods is the last thing we think but the best option we have. But the action that is required for us to do such thing, is like a matter of life and death. It means that we have to build and develop our stand as an Allied Health Professional first before we can actually build a strong rapport to our patient and see the worth of nutrition to their health.

EXPECTATION: CONSULTS DOCTORS ON NUTRITION MANAGEMENT OF PATIENTS AND UPDATE THEM WITH THE NEW NUTRITION CARE PLAN OR DIETARY MANAGEMENT FOR THE PATIENTS.

photo courtesy to https://www.cff.org

We have atleast 1% compliance for this part because honestly, even we initiate the act of being part of the health professional team, we have less consultation or coordination with the doctors. The Doctors decide for the patient diets - that's the true scenario, where in fact that was supposed to be our part.

We have different language with the doctors and that also affect the quality of nutritional care to patients. Though we say our part, the patient only believes about their doctor more than us, because we don't have gain that part yet.

EXPECTATION: CONDUCT RESEARCHES AND CASE STUDIES IN OUR OWN HOSPITAL.


This part are usually neglected in any hospital. We seldom conduct Researches and Case Study for us to improve the nutritional care of our patients and discover new approach in our program. What cause its negligence is because of work loads, support system and financial funding. Also, not everyone likes to do researches because it will only require us to give extra effort and additional time to focus with.

To sum up everything, their is a huge gap between Registered Nutritionist Dietitian as a part of the Health Professional Team, There is also some negligence of actual work, duties and responsibilities as a Dietitian. We still fighting for this battle since day one and up until now, the system doesn't work that way. We honestly need to give different approaches until we can now enjoy the trust of our patient to the importance of having a Dietitian to take good care of their health especially with regards to Nutrition Care.

ARE YOU AT RISK FOR DIABETES MELLITUS?

March 08, 2019 5 Comments

Diabetes Mellitus requires a lifestyle and behavioral change because it has no cure and it is considered as a progressive disease that complications occur when we don't take good care of ourselves.

Previously, we discuss the Alphabet of Diabetes to keep ourselves monitored. But today, I'll be sharing to you some of the RISK FACTORS for Diabetes. I also prepared 15 simple questions (quiz type) that will tell you if you are High Risk or Low Risk in getting a Diabetes Mellitus. 

A risk factor is a variable associated with an increased risk of disease or infection.

RISK FACTORS OF DIABETES

I'll be discussing 10 common risk factors of diabetes. These are some of the common risk factors that can possible lead to Diabetes as a disease.


  • ASIAN. It really runs in our blood. Being an Asian or a Filipino itself is one risk factor for Diabetes. We have the culture that potentially increase the risk of of us to have diabetes.
  • 40 ABOVE YEARS OLD. As we grow older, we are also at high risk. This is because  our body starts to degenerates at this age so some of our body parts malfunction.
  • RUNS IN THE FAMILY. If we have at least one in our family that have diagnosed with Diabetes, We also are at risk as well. Diabetes is also hereditary which carry over to generation to generation.
  • PHYSICAL IN-ACTIVITIES. Physical Health includes putting effort in making your body moves. If you do less physical activities, your bodily functions will be slower and bad fats will just store in your body that when it accumulated, it may cause some complications.
  • HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. Blood Pressure is also a sign of body malfunctions. If the blood pressure is not controlled, it may lead to further complications like diabetes.
  • HISTORY OF GESTATIONAL DIABETES. If you gave birth to baby that it beyond 9 lbs, you also have the high risk of being diabetes. Gestational Diabetes occurs usually during pregnancy which if it is not monitored or properly manage it will cause other complications and risk the babies life as well.
  • OVERWEIGHT. Always watch your weight. Excess fats can also damage some of your organ system and may lead to diabetes.
  • EATING "JUNK" FOODS. Junk Foods are considered high caloric intakes or unhealthy foods that if we eat a lot of it, it can really damage our body. So choose balance and healthy food or meals.
  • ALCOHOL ABUSER AND SMOKERS. We all know the effect of excessive alcohol in our health and also the damage of the cigarette to our lungs. 
  • STRESS. When we get stressed, free radicals are in boost which release bad toxins, and these toxins can damage our own body. 

Most of  the risk factors are mostly connected to one another because it has similar cause and from the same behavior of the person. For example excessive eating of junk foods will just lead to weight gain and obesity, plus it can also elevate the blood pressure and sugar level. 

In simplest terms, If we intake something excessive or deficient from what is required to us It can lead to body malfunctions and cause some diseases. Just like a Machine, if we won't undergo preventive maintenance or even clean or oiled it, machine will be fragile and broke down. 

Now, let's find out if YOU ARE AT RISK FOR DIABETES?  Take this quiz below and share your results with me. You can also tag me to your facebook timeline or just simply comment it below so we could chat  more about it.

Introducing a New Wave of Learning

March 05, 2019 3 Comments

I've always wanted to come up a topic that will cover both of my passion and my profession. I also thought about it a couple of times already but I didn't find a right word to use. 

But finally, I got it. I got the word. "Nutri Beauty PH" which stands for Nutrition Beauty Philippines. Beauty through Nutrition.

 I am not a professional Beauty Blogger but I believe that if you are passionate about it, you will try to understand, learn and be the best out of it. So I think a got potential in this side. 

Now, professionally speaking, I spend four years, studying our Body Anatomy, the Nutritional Care Process that is good for our body function, and to deeply understand the macro and micro nutrients we have within and with our daily intakes.

This is not new in our field but of course, we seldom talk about it. We always go for fitness and health which is a good thing, but in this side of the broad spectrum of Fitness, Health and Nutrition, we have few articles that focus mainly with keeping beautiful through optimal nutrition.


With this new idea in mind, I proud to announce this new wave of learning about Nutrition and Beauty, which I'm always love to talk about here in my blog. I know that we will both learn from this since I promise you to give you valuable information that will help you a lot and of course, to help me us well with my own struggles.

Let us both grow and discover the beauty through nutrition. See you at my next post and we will start doing new way of product review and understanding more deeply the benefits and importance of good nutrition in our body.

THE ALPHABET IN MANAGING DIABETES

February 07, 2019 11 Comments

Diabetes prevalence in the Philippines is about 6.2% or 3.7 million of the population have diagnosed with Diabetes. According to International Diabetes Federation, there will be a potential increase of 183 million by 2045 in the WP Region and that includes the Philippines.

Since 2013, Diabetes have ranked 6 for the cause of death of many Filipinos and since then, no data have recorded yet but the prevalence are increasing rapidly. Together with the Department of Health and other private sector, the Diabetes Community have already set goal to fight against Diabetes.


I would also like to share my expertise in the field of nutrition on how you can manage diabetes. We have the so-called Alphabet of Diabetes which will discuss the top priority for person with diabetes in which they should closely monitored.

  

ADVICE

Get advice from the health professional who would know best about your condition. Never do self-medication or relay on articles at the internet because anything you found in the internet are usually generalized not personalized and based only to theories. Though it has research-based studies, it still be best for you to relate it to your condition and not purely by making assumption about your condition.

Stay healthy by avoiding alcohol consumption, smoking, unhealthy and unplanned diet, unmonitored laboratory testing and negligence of signs and symptoms.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood Pressure must be closely monitored to avoid further chronic disease that may take place to the patient diagnosed with Diabetes. Since it is a progressive disease, it can lead to a more severe cases which we do not like to happen. Monitoring your blood pressure will avoid you from any cardiovascular disease and hypertension.


CHOLESTEROL

Another thing you need to monitor is your cholesterol level. Your bad cholesterol will also lead to Cardiovascular Disease and Blood Clotting due to increase level of bad fats in your blood stream. When Bad Fat is higher you are very high risk in acquiring chronic disease which may not be good to your condition. Lessen the bad fat and increase the good fat will keep you in good health.

DIABETES CONTROL (BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL)

The most important thing to the person with Diabetes and keeping her/his blood sugar level journal updated and well monitored. We don't want you to get to the point of very low or very high blood sugar level because of possible side effects and worst case is the sudden death. Never forget to prick and check your blood sugar level, before and after meal. Record everything so when you visit your doctor, she/he will know if they need to change your dose of medicine or refer you to your Dietitian and make your personalized meal plan.

EYES EXAMINATION

One of the acute complication if your Diabetes is not properly manage is your Eyes Malfunction (Retinopathy) where your veins in the eyes are slowly damage which will result to blindness. So one way to avoid it is to always go to your Eyes Doctor (Opthalmologist) and do examination. Always take good care of your eyes and manage your blood sugar level always.

FEET CARE

Unhealed wounds are commonly happened to Diabetes so we should always be careful with our skin especially with our feet. Keeping your feet in good care, cleaned and protected will avoid you from getting wounds. Also, If you don't manage your blood sugar, all your nerves are being damage and may result to lose the feeling of touch or lose your sensation. If you started to go numb into your lower extremities (from waist to feet) there is the high risk of getting wounds unknowingly and wounds even it is a small one will not heal unless you immediately take your first aid. 

GUARDIAN DRUGS

Medication is also needed in managing your Diabetes. We also need to consider the Food and Drug Interaction to know what should be eaten. You must also monitor the time you must eat and the time you must take your medicine. Timing is one of the most important thing with Diabetes. You have to take your meds on time and eat on time.

To sum up everything, the Alphabet of Diabetes will help you remember on how you should manage your condition. You need to take advices from your health professional team, monitor everything from your blood pressure, cholesterol level and of course your blood sugar level, always take care of your whole body especially your eyes and feet and always take your medicine on time.

There's no going back if you will be diagnosed with Diabetes but you can always control and hinder its progression. As long as you keep yourself discipline and well-monitored, you can always go with a normal life. But once you have it, you must start changing your lifestyle to survive this battle.
