what is it? hmm? Hypertension is just another word for high blood pressure.
Diuretics are used when one is experiencing an excess presence of water within the body, where these medications flush this out by increasing urine amounts in the body.Also known as water tablets, these medications are helpful when getting rid of water deposits that remain within the body, and that haven’t been filtered out. It helps combat against heart failure; due to a lot of water present in the tissues, these slows the flow of blood successively through the body. It helps patients who have high blood pressure as well.
how can we have this?
it is basically hereditary or from your lifestyle. let me give you some examples:
it may be from the genes of your parents and also from the food you are eating daily, stress maybe one of the reasons and lack of sleep.
How can we prevent it?
we can prevent it by simply changing our lifestyle starting from eating more vegetables and fruits like ampalaya and onions for sauting, and lessen our intake of fatty and high cholesterol foods like: pork, chicharon, balot and many more. another answer is we should also lessen salty foods because one of the factor of hypertension is the increase of sodium in our body.And last one, we should atleast have 8 hours of sleep and avoid stress if possible always be happy and smile.
the reason i made this blog is because one of my friend is also suffering from hypertension even though he is still young at the age of 18. also it is our vacation and i know that we are really not aware of what we can get by eating what we want mostly and ofcourse staying late at night, i made this to aware all of you and especially us college students around.
I hope that you learned something after reading my blog and change whatever bad habbit or unnecessary things you do. And from now on, be a model to your siblings or your friends to have a healthy lifestyle because i can see from my friend that it is really hard having that hypertension.
since it is our semestral break, what do you do guy’s? i am sure that drinking is a part. (Alcohol drinking) was invented in the 300 bc in india, it was said to be relaxing and it helps us relax. just for example. after a long and tiring day, it is really fun to grab a beer and talk with friends, also drinking is also a good pastime and a very good way of bonding with friends. and if you really want to get drunk and be wild. go to the nearest store (7eleven) buy vodka etc. and call friends. really simple isnt it. that is the proof that alcohol is really good but Some are saying that it is a advantage, . But what do you think is the real answer? Is it harmful for us?
Based on the studies and researches, excessive amount of alcohol may lead to critical diseases and the worst is death, there are also stages wherein you can identify whether you should stop or to know your limit in drinking. But the sure thing is that when we drink a lot. We destroy our liver without even knowing it because we are having fun. i am not trying to stop you guys from drinking but since it has been a part of our lives, why don’t you take a look at this picture below and see for yourself. i also want you to ask yourself a 2 questions. first is should i stop?
second is should i lessen my intake of alcohol?
i am now sure that you’ve already came up with a answer, and atleast now, you are aware of what alcohol can bring us. all i can say is that alcohol beverages or drinking has been a part or tradition and we cannot remove it from the interest of us just because of its harmful effects, what we can do is to control it, instead of going home wasted, i am sure that it is better to go home just tipsy. where you know what you’re doing and you are still aware. in that case, you can be sure that you can prevent those harmful effects of alcoholic drinks.
i can say that this picture at the top is the best answer for the 2 questions i gave you. you dont have to stop or to stay away while your friends are drinking so that you cant be tempted but at least look at the picture, that is it.
We had a lesson in which we talked about why companies have their vacations, maybe it is the same with why we students have our sem-break every after a semester. College is really different from highschool, different subjects with different projects but to be submitted on a same date. It is hard for us and it is a good thing that we have a sem-break where we can unwind and relax. A vacation where we can put aside our work and just sit around or have fun. It is also good because once we have so much stress,we can be at the state of burnout wherein too much stress is with in us.

Transition from locked up to freedom
I know a lot of people who’s from the middle east here at Enderun and all I can say is we know how hard it is living in a country that is not liberal enough or shall I say a “closed country” like Saudi Arabia. It is a lot different here in the Philippines where you can spend more time with your family and friends with out worrying. At Saudi Arabia, we cannot go outside wearing shorts and sleeveless shirts, boys cannot go with girls outside because of the “mutawas”. Girls should wear the appropriate dress like the “Abaya”. Drinking alcoholic beverages is also strictly prohibited. That is how hard it is living in Saudi Arabia, a lot different here in the Philippines in which you can spend time with your friends going to malls, drinking and more.
here is a sample of abaya
but despite the fact that it is really strict in Saudi Arabia, that makes the people disciplined and they say that the reason of them being strict is because of the “mecca”, in my opinion, they are right, they should maintain the laws and policies and in that way they can preserve their culture. thank you for reading my blog
