My name is Alex. I am a general physician by profession, a blogger, and an entrepreneur.
I used to be OBESE and HYPERTENSIVE.
I have always been fascinated by the art of natural healing applied to common chronic diseases like obesity, hypertension, and diabetes. These illnesses affect many people worldwide.
To find natural answers to these diseases, I devoted much of my time consuming information on the science of NUTRITION and EXERCISE, most of which I did not learn in medical school.
I relentlessly experimented on myself and applied everything I learned to reverse cardiovascular risk factors I once had.
As a resulting experience, I managed and improved my own problematic health parameters - thanks to inspirational works of renowned new-generation nutrition scientists and doctors.
I was able to DROP MY SIZE from 210 pounds to 160 pounds and I am now FREE of high blood pressure.
Fourteen years have passed since my last hypertensive attack, and never again!
I am now on a mission to educate and make Filipinos realize - especially those with overweight, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes - that lifestyle modification is still more powerful than any drug in preventing heart disease, treating heart disease, and improving one's physical state and longevity.
If you are aspiring to lose weight or reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes, I hope you’ll find my website as a valuable tool in achieving your own goal towards regaining your health.
The challenge ahead of us is DREADFUL. Look at the facts below and you will get a clear picture to where we are heading:
⇒ Worldwide, OBESITY has more than doubled since 1980. In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these, over 600 million were obese.
⇒ In the Philippines, from 1993 to 2013, the prevalence of overweight/obesity among adults rose from 16.6% to 31.1%.
⇒ Since year 2000 up to 2015, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes remained among the top 10 leading causes of death worldwide – heart disease was consistently the champion.
⇒ The trend of HYPERTENSION prevalence among adults in the Philippines from 1993 to 2013 remained above 21%.
⇒ Prevalence of DIABETES among adults in the Philippines in 2016 is at 5.8%. We are talking about MILLIONS poor sick Pinoys here!
I believe that part of the problem is NOT that because people don’t care about their health, but because of the fact that people are still being given the WRONG INFORMATION by those who they look to as health authorities.
These problems are not going away; in fact, it looks like that they are getting worse.
All these problems CAN BE SOLVED.
