older menI am only in my mid 30s and yet people mistake me to be somewhere between 45 and 50 years old. I guess I do not blame these people because indeed my face has aged a lot on account of the stress that I get from my work and family. I even look older than my eldest sibling who is in fact 12 years older than me. It was sometimes embarrassing not only on my part but also on the part of the people who mistook my age but I guess I only had myself to blame then because I never addressed the issue when in fact there was an available solution.

I wanted to visit a medi spa clinic but was so ashamed to do it because I felt that it was no place for men. I had the impression that medical spa clinics are only for women and are not for men. It was a good thing that a close friend of mine made me change my view on medical spa clinics and dermatologists when he brought me in one of the medical spas available in our place. I was so surprised to find out that indeed the medical spa is a place for both women and men. I realized that men have also become more conscious on the effects of aging and stress in their face and skin and are becoming proactive in preventing or reducing these undesirable effects.

It did not take me a long time before a doctor examined me and heard my concerns. I was advised that my skin had indeed undergone an advanced aging process because of stress. Since I cannot do anything about the stress I experience daily, what I can do is to undergo skin care treatments to address the wrinkles and excessive skin fold on my face. I was presented by the doctor with various treatment options that included Botox , dermal fillers, IPL and PRP.

Since I knew nothing of those treatments, I just told my doctor to give the treatment that best suits me for as long as I get the results that I desired which was to look younger or at least look right for my age.

I received botox injections and a week after it was injected to me; I noticed a significant improvement in my wrinkles. The wrinkles were no longer very obvious as it used to be. People also started teasing me that I looked younger and this really and this really made feel great and become more confident.

doctorsMy children never miss their vaccinations from their pediatrician not even for a single day. Their doctor and I have known each for several years and since the beginning that the doctor had been looking after my two young kids, I had never let another pediatrician see them. As a matter of fact, if there was no urgency to see my kids’ doctor and the latter was not around, I would just ask for another appointment rather than have my children seen by her assistant. I guess I can’t blame myself after having a bad experience with an earlier pediatrician that really made doubtful on some doctors.

My children almost missed their last vaccination right after we came from a family vacation. It was the last day for their vaccination when we arrived from our vacation. Considering the urgency and without prior appointment, we immediately proceeded to my children’s pediatrician to have their vaccine. We were not able to see them after the doctor called in sick because of flu. I wanted to settle with the assistant since it left me no choice but the assistant was likewise sick and there was no other doctor available to administer the vaccination.

I did not know what to do and I did not want my children to miss their vaccines since I considered their vaccination to require an urgent care. I called a friend and she suggested that I can visit Doctors Express Urgent Care which was not far from the pediatrician’s clinic. In proceeded to the said clinic and was worried that I might not be accommodated because I did not have any appointment. It turned out that it was a walk n clinic and patients could be accommodated even without prior appointment. There were a lot of patients waiting at the reception area and I was again worried that my children might not get their vaccines. I was so delighted that we were accommodated in less than 30 minutes I gave the forms to the receptionist. A young doctor approached me and took the medical history of my children. The doctor was very polite and she appeared to know everything she was talking about. It did not take me a long time to feel comfortable with her. My children liked her too because she was very kind and friendly to my kids.

The doctor was very gentle in handling my children and it was not long after that my children finally completed their vaccination. I was so pleased with the services we received from the clinic and I would definitely return to the clinic for my other medical needs.

organic-foodDo you like the appeal and taste of organic food, but you don’t like the price? You can get organic foods with some smart cooking and shopping, and you won’t have to break your budget for food.

There are a lot of places to buy organic foods nowadays, and you have a lot more options when it comes to finding great deals on food. There are major big brand name grocery stores that carry organic food now, plus there are specialty stores, health food stores, farmers’ marketers, and food co-ops. Consider going straight to local biodynamic gardeners to get the best organic food at the lowest price. Not going through the middleman can save you a lot of money.

If you don’t really shop around, there’s a chance you could end up paying too much for organic food. Even though most people are willing to pay a little more for organic food, they’re not able or willing to do so week after week.

Do Ample Research

You have a ton of choices for organic food where you live. It just takes a little research to discover them. Just type the name of your city and “organic” into a search engine, and you’ll see a lot come up.

Try Farmers’ Markets

Farmers’ markets are excellent sources of local produce. A ripe tomato from a farm nearby tastes a lot better than a tomato that’s been shipped halfway across the world. It’s also going to be cheaper at a farmers’ market. The trick to landing good deals at farmers’ markets is to ask plenty of questions. Ask about bruised produce, and whether you can get it at a discount. Ask about buying in bulk for a discount. Ask what tastes the best.
