Dr. Philip Tan-Gatue: Acupunture Resolved My Mysterious Flu-like Symptoms

| Read more...
I thought I was becoming healthier.  Last May 29, I enrolled in yoga class.  (Determined to fix my rounded back and shoulders which I had since college.  Beginning June, I drank lemon water first thing in the morning.  I substituted Old Town 2-in-1 Coffee for teas (black, earl grey, chrysanthenum,matcha, chamomile and green tea) and hot chocolate made from unsweetened pure cocoa tablea.  For snacks, it was an apple or a handful or salted almonds.  Yet when rainy days came, I was surprised to be instantly sick with flu-like symptoms.  I had head aches, fatigue, chills, runny knows, itchy eye lids, teary etes and frequent urination.

I had to miss two weeks of yoga.  I had to take a sick leave from work.  Yet despite all the healthy foods, vitamins, flu medicine and rest, I was not getting any better.  By June 17, I literally felt like sh*t.  I couldn't do any work because my head was cloudy and my eyes felt strained, my eyelids were itching badly, I was too weak to take the stairs which was my daily routine, I was chilly despite wearing two jackets, I had runny nose, I was restless and couldn't sleep.  I was worried about my seminar the next day which does not allow absence.  Supposing I attend, I couldn't have as much rest room breaks.
Dr. Philip Tan-Gatue
Out of desperation, I resolved to seek the aid of an acupunturist.  I've tried an acupunturist twice before and it was able to address my issues which traditonal medicine couldn't solve.

Initially, I  googled for an acupunturist in Quezon City where I work so I could visit duting lunch break. I found INAM and tried to call them but no response.  I then resolved to wait until after work.  I checked the website of Dr. Philip Tan-Gatue for his schedule.  How convenient that he has clinic hours from 4 to 8 (after work hours!) at PGH so I quickly pm'd him.  As he replied within a few minutes, I had a sigh of relief.

I arrived at the Family medicine clinic at PGH at around 6:45 pm.  Dr. Philip was rhe sole Doctor available there so naturally, patients in line were his patients.  I had to wait 15 minutes before it was my turn.

As this was my second visit, I have confirmed Dr. Philip's approach.  Unlike the extensive checklist of status and forms from my previous visit to Regina Liu, Dr. Philip simply asks what is your problem that you would like him to resolve and after he quickly inspects your tongue and in my case, also the wrist, he will initiate his acupuncture.  He stated that I was "hamog na hamog".  He told me he would make my back sweat.

I had around 6 needles on the front side (15 minutes), 2 needles at the back and 1 on top of my head (15 minutes).

By 9 pm, I messaged Dr. Philip that I was feeling but not near sweating point. He advised me to wrap up.  So by  11 pm, I slept with 2 layered blankets.  I sweat from head to toe during the night despite having the aircon switched on.  I woke up the next morning from one of the best sleep I've had this year perhaps.

Now, I am attending the seminar. Eyes still feeling a bit dried but, eye lids are no longer swollen and itchy.  I can touch it comfortably.  Despite feeling a bit weak like recovering from illness, I no longer have chills, runny nose and frequent urination.

So confirmed, Dr. Philips acupunture is effective.  After 3 weeks of trying to resolve the problem, I finally found relief within hours!

The only problem is their store visibility.  See that white tarpaulin?  That is their only signage.  I had to walk inside the shop to ask where the spa is actually located.  They pointed me to the driveway on the left side which had a staircase leading to the second floor.

Once you head up, you can easily find it.

I tried their Swedish Spa which was affordable!  Only 300 php for 1 hour.  My massage therapist Clemen was very courteous.  The massage was so good.  I was actually dozed off.

I thought the Collagen Facial will take place here.  But, it's actually also in bed.  I've been neglecting my face.  Yes!!! I needed this!  My face is always irritated but Keesh was able to do a great job with the cleaning and collagen mask.  For only 400 php, I am happy to say, I was more satisfied witht he facial than the massage.

5 Facts to Know About Red Light Camera Tickets

| Read more...
California law enforcement processes thousands of red light tickets every year. For police, these tickets are easier than ever to issue with the assistance of red light cameras that clearly identify a car’s license plate and driver’s face. If issued one of these citations, getting a traffic attorney California is very helpful for there are many ways to fight back on this.

1. There Are Red Light Ticket Scams

Some Californians have received letters that look official but are actually detailed scams designed to trick unsuspecting citizens to pay someone who is not a courthouse. Most of the time, the letters will tell you to pay the fine over phone or online. That never happens with a real ticket. Red light ticket lawyers review documents that look suspicious.

2. Car Triggers the Camera If It Enters Intersection

The way the camera is set up, it takes a picture if a car enters the intersection. If your car is in the intersection while the light is still yellow, the camera will not activate. In many cases, people believe they can make a yellow light in time so they pick up the speed in order to do so. However, their luck is not always on their side and the signal changes before they are through. If this is the case, a California speeding ticket attorney is extremely beneficial to get this kind of ticket dismissed.

3. There Will Usually Be Signs

There could be red light camera signs anywhere between 10 and 500 feet back from the traffic light. However, some cameras may not have any signs posted. Some cameras signify their presence by painting extra lines within the intersection.

4. It Can Be Incorrect

While it is rare, sometimes cameras show incorrect pictures. For example, on a rainy or misty day, police may be unable to adequately read the license plate and issue a ticket to the wrong driver.

5. You Can Fight a Red Light Ticket

There are numerous ways to fight a ticket. If the license plate is obstructed, then you can use that to your defense. If there are multiple vehicles in the intersection, you can argue the other vehicle distorted the view of your vehicle and that it is not actually you. There are numerous ways to fight these tickets, and you need to contact an attorney from Ticket Clinic to help you with your case.

How to Protect Your Own Business

| Read more...
Opening your own business is a fairly straightforward process. From filing for a business, creating your tax id application, to getting your employer identification number (EIN), things can take up to as little as an hour. Of course, there remains the alarming statistic that most businesses fail in the first five years.  Some people let this fact deter them from opening a business at all.  If you are wise, though, you will focus on protecting your business.  These are some ways to increase the chances that your business will be among the survivors.

Don’t Spread Yourself Too Thin

It is a good idea to think big but start small with a new business.  Start with a project or scope that requires only a small amount of startup capital and overhead.  For example, you can start with a food truck with four items on the menu.  Meanwhile, you can be thinking about the future.  Your five-year plan could be to open five food court stalls and a sit-down restaurant.

Protect the Private Information of Your Business

Very few people know which eleven seasonings are part of a world-famous chicken recipe, but trade secrets are not the only information business owners need to protect.  You are careful not to let people steal your identity by finding out your social security number or bank account numbers.  Likewise, only reveal private information about your business, such as bank account numbers and computer passwords, to employees you really trust.  The bigger your business gets, the more of a challenge this is.  You should also choose secure passwords for all password-protected accounts.  Sign all documents by hand; having a signature stamp is too dangerous.

It is a challenge to keep your business solvent and its private information safe.  A legal taxpayer ID for your business, however, is only a few clicks awy.

Roaming Buddy: A Digital Nomad’s Best Friend

| Read more...

Internet access has been declared a human right by the UN way since back in 2011, and yet it
is still notoriously hard to find. Frequent travellers know this best, especially those who need to
take their work with them. The thought of frantically searching for wireless signal while trying to
beat a deadline on the go would be enough to dampen any travel plans. Despite its advantages,
living the digital nomad lifestyle still has this one major blocker to overcome.

However, a company has been constantly chipping away at this global problem, and is now
poised to eradicate it once and for all. Roam Buddy claims to be able to deliver wireless Internet
in more than 90 countries around the world, without the hassle of changing providers or signing
up for other services.

Roaming Just Got Easier
Imagine a device that can deliver unlimited (yes, no capping!) 24/7 Internet access no matter
which borders you cross. Roam Buddy aims to be just this. Powered by Skyroam, a company
that provides a “global hotspot”, Roam Buddy is a small, handheld device that acts as a wireless
router. Simply connect your mobile devices to it (up to 5 at a time), and enjoy consistent Net
access.

Roam Buddy has a pretty amazing list of countries covered. Whether you’re watching eating
shawarma in Turkey, or tending to elephants in Southern Asia, Roam Buddy has you covered.
And because it’s battery-powered and pocket-friendly, you can use the device while being
where the action is. Skype with your loved ones while dangling your feet over a picturesque
Andalusian gorge, or submit your work while sipping cocktails in Montserrat. Or, better yet, use
it to find your way while trekking through terra incognita.

That last part is what I’ve been using Roam Buddy for as I travel Europe. I’ve been using its
services to find the best tourist places, to search Google Maps, to know the train schedule, and
more! As a digital nomad and online freelancer, it also helps me complete my tasks without
having to shuffle back to the hotel’s WiFi zone.

I absolutely love the service because no matter how many borders and time zones you cross,
the rates are still the same. It’s still part of the same 24 hours.

Friendly travel options
While Roam Buddy is easily positioning itself as a travel must-have, it has to make itself
available to budget travelers, too. For frequent travellers such as businessmen, a unit can be
purchased for $99. The purchase includes 3 free “Daypasses”. A Daypass (a full day of Internet
access) can then be topped up for $8 a day.

And for those who just travel on occasion — backpackers, tourists, and the like — a rent option
is also available. Roam Buddy also offers unlimited Internet at as low as $8 a day. As a plus, it
can be delivered to your location or you can pick it up from one of their offices.
It’s devices like Roam Buddy that help make the world a more connected place, opening up new
possibilities for its users. What can the Internet do for you? Find out as you roam the world!
