Leg thrombosis is, unfortunately, more and more present within our population and it is especially common for women. Even though it can also be diagnosed within hands, hips, brain, anus, in 90 % of cases, it will manifest itself as deep vein thrombosis of the leg. It is a severe condition that needs to be treated as soon as it is noticed.

                If unusual pain appears in your legs, together with increased tension of entire muscle system and swelling, do not take it for granted. If you skin becomes red and blue and you have a constant feeling of warmth within legs followed by increased body temperature, you can easily suspect that you have this condition. It is important to contact your doctor immediately so that he can clarify this state and prescribe you necessary drugs. In most cases, you can buy Plavix online to treat this problem. Doctors will also establish if only surface veins are effects or if the disease has taken a toll on deep veins as well.

                Surface thrombophlebitis is characterized by symptoms that last for a very short time, usually couple of hours up to a day or two. You can easily recognize it by symptoms such as redness, thickening of the skin, inflammation of leg veins, increased sensitivity, pain and warmth within affected area. The acute disease lasts up to 14 days maximum when all these issues slowly start subsiding. On rare occasions, thrombophlebitis will be followed by temperature, sedimentation and the large number of leucostictes.

                On the other hand, we have deep vein thrombosis. Sometimes, people who are suffering from it will not notice any issues. The condition itself is not dangerous except for the fact that it can lead to pulmonary embolism which is life threatening. To avoid death, a doctor will have to pay attention for swelling of the leg, tension, feeling of weight, sensitivity, redness, skin discoloration, surface veins popping out, hard walking and pain which persist even when the patient is not moving. The biggest pain will appear when you bend your joints, when knees are stretched or when you stand up with extended feet. According to experts from You! Drugstore, this is also known as Homan’s sign.

                Every blood clot that appears in veins and makes it difficult for blood to flow is called thrombus. It causes significant changes on very walls of veins and blood platelets starts grouping and sticking to each other making a blood clot. The state is usually caused by long-term resting, immovability, stroke, hard infections, heart attack, physical trauma, etc.

                Nowadays, most medical experts will recommend Plavix for this particular issue. The drug prevents platelets from sticking thus avoiding creation of blood clots. It is especially useful for preventing blood clotting after the recent heart attack or stroke. Even though it can be used before surgery (to avoid coagulation), it shouldn’t be used during last five days before the procedure. The drug can be utilized with or without food and dosage depends on the particular case.

Gaku Nakamura is a self-styled Japanese Ramen Consultant living in Manila. Last year, he listed his top 10 ramen with Ramen Nagi topping the list. But with some new and authentic restaurants popping up, here are some of Gaku-san’s top ramen for 2015!

MUST TRY: Shoyu Tonkatsu

Gaku says: “Mendokoro has tonkotsu-based ramen with chashu. The restaurant looks just like a Japanese-style kitchen and it reminds me of a good ramen restaurant in Japan, Afuri. The taste of the broth and chasu is very nice.”

Heads up! Gary V on Novuhair: putting energy into prevention

Nothing describes Gary Valenciano quite like his moniker “Mr. Pure Energy,” He is the very image of youthful vibrance, whether onstage or not. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he values the way he looks the same way that he values the core of who he is: a prayerful, faithful husband, dependable father, and an outstanding entertainer. 

​Part of what makes Gary stay young looking is his head of hair. What many people don’t know is that, like all other men his age, Gary once worried about hair thinning and hair loss. That’s why, at the first signs of the problem, Gary sought to find ways to prevent it from becoming worse. 
​“I first noticed the hair loss in the shower, after I toweled my hair dry. Then one day, my team of hairstylists noticed that my hair was thinning, too. That’s when they told me to look for the product that Fanny Serrano was using, a product called NOVUHAIR,” remarked Gary on his journey to regaining control over his hair loss.
​NOVUHAIR is a topical scalp lotion that is a unique combination of 14 different natural ingredients and essential oils for a healthier hair and scalp. One of the factors of hair loss, according to studies, is stress, something that Gary experiences on almost a daily basis. Other factors include hereditary disorders, a persistent illness, major surgery, hormonal problems, childbirth & delivery, medications, infections, pollutants, and even excessive exposure to sunlight. And contrary to popular belief, hair loss is as much a problem for women as it is for men. In many cases, hair loss may be prevented or alleviated through early detection. In the case of Gary, his decision to try NOVUHAIR to prevent his symptoms from worsening made a big difference, and within a few months, he saw remarkable results.
​Gary shares his experience with NOVUHAIR as he tells the story of their family hair history: “Hair loss runs in our family, too, even if it sometimes skips a generation. My brother and grandfather both lost their hair, but my dad still has a full head of hair at 87. I just wanted to make sure I take control of my symptoms. Now, I use NOVUHAIR everyday, and I’ve noticed that I don’t shed as much hair as I did before, especially after toweling my hair dry. And my hairstylists noticed it, too. I love using NOVUHAIR because it has this minty, cool effect that makes me feel like my hair is always clean and fresh.”

​“In less than a month and half, I already saw results even if I was told to wait three to four months before I can see a difference. The effects on me were much faster. There were fewer strands on my white towel, which basically was within the normal boundaries of hair loss for an average person. Before using NOVUHAIR, I used to shed more.” This is due to the fact that NOVUHAIR penetrates deep to help rejuvenate, nourish, & maintain moisture in the scalp and hair. By improving the blood circulation in the scalp, NOVUHAIR helps stimulate hair growth and aid in preventing further, excessive hair fall, while also improving the overall appearance of the hair.

​“I never endorse a product that I did not experience first. I have to make sure it is really effective. With Novuhair, I can say that it has really contributed to my peace of mind and overall well-being. And, heads up, as Novuhair is now part of my daily routine, which includes prayer, diet, and medication. God has truly lived up to his promise in my life, and as he says in Psalm 92:14 ‘I will keep you fruitful even in old age. Fresh and green.’ I am very happy now that Novuhair is a part of that.”
