Healthway Medical provides the utmost healthcare needs of patients

Good health is true wealth. I learned about that when I was hospitalized  2 weeks ago. I prayed too hard and even bargained "Lord, please its not yet time pa po".  I  thought I was healthy and stable because of normal laboratory workups done from last month. I never imagined I would be in a room with IV hooked on and in full medication.

Anyway, when I was in my hospital bed. My doctor ordered laboratory workups and MRI.
Thank God for the result was normal, but my blood chemistry results showed otherwise. Right now, I am on medication and still recuperating.

The lesson here is never take your health for granted. If you are not feeling well, take time to rest. See your doctor immediately, if you are dizzy and vomiting. Make time for check up.  Take your vitamins everyday and never skip meals. Eat healthy if you can, even if youre surrounded by fast food in the mall. There is that one resto that offers healthy food. If youre in Shangri-la Plaza Mall,  check out Healthway Medical and their package offerings.

For more than 20 years, Healthway Medical has continued to make a name in the Philippines as a leader in preventive healthcare, offering customers various medical checkups that come in numerous package offerings.

In showing the way to Filipinos toward a healthier lifestyle, Healthway Medical currently has three product packages: Basic 5, PrimecheQ and HealthcheQ.

Basic 5 covers the Annual Physical Exam (APE), 

PrimecheQ is designed to ensure healthy aging in one’s prime years, and 

HealthcheQ is a premium brand of executive check-up that offers comprehensive medical tests with pampering treats. 

These have remained successful in providing the utmost health care needs of clients’ and patients’ needs. However, after studying the market’s demand, Healthway determined there is already a need to come up with more packages.

Thus, Healthway launched recently at the Shangri-La Plaza in Mandaluyong City a new executive check-up set dubbed “Healthy Lifestyle Bundles” that offers a variety of packages customized for customers’ lifestyle needs. 

It includes science-based personalized coaching and medical consultation to help start and maintain new healthy behaviors. It comes in 6 packages: WellCheQ, PhysicalCheQ, WeightCheQ, HeartCheQ, DiabetesCheQ and SportsCheQ, all designed to help patients achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

WellCheQ provides patients a full evaluation of their health via a comprehensive executive check-up, while PhysicalCheQ is a comprehensive medical examination package that evaluates the status of one’s health

As a response to the growing number of weight, heart and diabetes health issues among Filipinos, Healthy Lifestyle Bundles suggests WeightCheq, HeartCheq, and DiabetesCheq, all relevant tests designed to help patients screen or monitor their weight, heart and blood sugar levels.

Even professional and non-professional/recreational athletes will also find the Healthy Lifestyle Bundles’ SportsCheQ very appropriate as it gives special care to the sports enthusiast by thoroughly evaluating their physical condition. 

All these packages are beneficial to combat self-inflicted diseases like diabetes, hypertension and obesity, all preventable through Healthway’s Preventive Health Cycle: embracing the “SEED” Lifestyle (Sleep, Eat Right, Exercise, De-Stress), conducting a quick self-check and consulting a medical professional regularly.

Also present during the launch were Healthway Medical’s partners such as Fitness Army and Nestlé Philippines, and one of its brand ambassadors, professional athlete JV Wong, who is also Chief Executive of People Ignite, an organization and development company in the country.

With its triple camera and pop-up selfie plus its fulfilled promise of a true full screen experience, the Mi9T was the perfect accessory.

Get your eco-friendly beauty on Kiehl's Made Better campaign

Oh how we love skincare products. No matter how much the price tag is, some of us splurge on those. Now, if you have empty skincare bottles lying around in your makeup cabinet. Dont throw your items away. Recycling your empty bottles can help
you protect the environment and it let you earn some Kiehls skincare samples for free.  Sound too good to be true? Yes, you hear it right here.   

Kiehls PH partners with Save Philippine Seas for the launch of Made Better campaign last July 18 with celebrity ambassadors Mond and Richard Gutierrez at Greenbelt 5, Makati.  

Together with celebrity twins, Mond and Richard Gutierrez, Kiehl’s Philippines brought attention to the protection and conservation of marine life. Proceeds from the sale of limited-edition Made Better products will fund the preservation of Anilao, which Kiehl’s Philippines is adopting as its island beneficiary.

Made Better is a global campaign that spotlights environmental issues. It is Kiehl’s commitment to create products that are naturally derived, sustainably sourced, and responsibly packaged and manufactured. Another pillar of the initiative is Kiehl’s gives, the brand’s philanthropic arm, which allows Kiehl’s to provide key opinion leaders with a platform to bring attention to their advocacies. 

Made Better Event Launch 
The event was hosted by lifestyle maven, Janeena Chan. Followed by opening words from Kiehl’s Brand Director Kaila Nicdao, and Kiehl’s Senior Product Manager Joan Hwang, guests were treated to the release of this year’s Made Better campaign video featuring Mond & Richard Gutierrez. 

“The time is now to make the world a better place for future generations of Filipinos by supporting sustainable efforts to conserve and preserve our most precious resource: our seas,” shares Mond Gutierrez.

In the video, the twins discuss the many problems faced by our waters while sharing tips to create a sustainable future. In addition, the video highlights the efforts from Save Philippine Seas (SPS). Established in 2011, Save Philippine Seas is a registered non-profit organization determined to clean and protect marine life in the Philippines.

Save Philippine Seas has three pillars: education, engagement, and empowerment. We want Filipinos to mobilize different initiatives for collective action and behavior change,” said Anna Oposa, Chief Mermaid for Save Philippine Seas.As a Kiehl’s user, I am really excited about the campaign. I really believe that the way forward to take care of the Earth is by working with different companies – like Kiehl’s. Kiehl’s is sincere in what they’re trying to do, and they’ve created ambitious targets to achieve them.”

Rejuvenate Your Skin and the Earth this July
Starting August, all Kiehl’s Since 1851 stores nationwide will offer limited-edition Made Better variants of two beloved customer favorites:

·       Calendula Toner 125ml 
Gentle ingredients such as Calendula Flower Petals and Great Burdock Root Extract are blended to cleanse and rejuvenate normal and oily skins. Each 125mL bottle of the Calendula Toner is made of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic.

·       Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream 50ml
Experience 24-hour hydration with a lightweight gel moisturizer for oily and normal skins. Naturally-derived ingredients such as Imperata Cylindrica (Desert Plant Extract) and Glacial Glyocoprotien leaves the skin feeling instantly refreshed.

Each limited-edition bottle will feature art specially designed by the Gutierrez twins. The cover design is inspired by a stunning underwater photograph taken by Richard Gutierrez during a diving expedition.

“The fact that we get to use Richard’s photographs for the cause is more meaningful for us,” says Mond Gutierrez. “It’s a first hand account of really how beautiful the oceans are. So, that’s what we wanted to highlight by using his photography as the backdrop.”

Proceeds from each bottle of limited-edition Made Better products sold will directly fund Save Philippines Seas’ and Kiehl’s Philippines partnership to preserve Anilao.

“I do know that Mond and Richard are avid divers,” adds Oposa. “And as divers, we have a shared love for the sea. And we have a shared passion in making sure that in twenty to thirty years, we can still dive in all the beautiful sites in the Philippines.”

Limited-Edition Calendula Toner 125ml (PHP 1,450) and Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream 50ml (PHP 1,750) are available starting August 2019 at all Kiehl’s retail stores nationwide. 

Customers are encouraged to recycle their Kiehl’s bottles at all stores. These bottles will be recycled into trash bins which will be deployed to Kiehl’s partner barangay—Anilao. Three recycled bottles can be exchanged for a travel-sized sample of any product of their choice.
