MediCard offers food intolerance testing


Do you feel bloated or suffer headaches after eating certain food items? Your body may be secretly reacting to the food you have just eaten. It is also possible that some of the recurring health issues you have been experiencing are caused by certain food that your body cannot tolerate.
According to Dr. Nicky Montoya, president of MediCard Philippines, a leading health maintenance organization, food intolerance, unlike food allergy, manifests symptoms gradually, usually 72 hours to a few days after eating the offending food. It may cause different inflammatory symptoms which may affect different organs of the body and manifests as weight gain, bloating, migraine, body aches and pains including joint pains, PMS, depression etc. These can also become worse over time and may lead to more serious health problems, such as heart disease, cancer and the likes, if ignored. Due to food intolerance delayed onset to manifest in the body, it is difficult to trace the root cause which is often just the food you are intolerant to.
MediCard has recently introduced FoodPrint, the most advanced and comprehensive food intolerance testing, to its members. This food intolerance test from the UK helps identify the food groups that trigger health problems. It involves exposing your body to 220 food items then taking a pin-prick sample of your blood for analysis. The test is a preventive measure and lifestyle modification tool. Knowing what food your body cannot tolerate can help you get rid of the symptoms and prevents the development of other diseases, like cancer and diabetes.
Food intolerance is a detrimental reaction of the body after ingesting certain food and beverages, which usually triggers a mild inflammatory reaction of the gut and digestive problems, like diarrhea and constipation. Its other symptoms include migraines, moodiness, and tiredness at certain times of the day, and difficulty losing weight.
MediCard offers a discounted rate for the Food Intolerance TestPHP 11,400 for MediCard members and PHP 12,000 for non-members until July 31, 2016 only. After the test, you will be given a personalized food report and dietary guidebook. 

The innovative service is offered at the MediCard Lifestyle Center, a first-of-its-kind wellness center in Makati, and at the MediCard clinics in Centris, EDSA and Alabang. To avail of the service, call the MediCard Lifestyle Center at (02) 894-5720 or 878-5101, MediCard Centris, EDSA at (02) 920-5164 or 775-4629, and MediCard Alabang at (02) 850-3209 or 807-9219.

GOAB4 is coming: Int’l tech ​&startup conference​ set in Panglao on August 2016


The “Geeks on a Beach” (GOAB) international tech ​and startup conference​, which has greatly contributed in empowering Philippine startups, will return for the fourth year in the scenic island of Panglao in Bohol this August​ 25-26,​ 2016.

​This was announced by ​TechTalks.ph and the new Department of Information and Communications Technology (formerly DOST-ICTO) which co-organizes the event since 2013 as well as the MVP companies — PLDT SME Nation, Ideaspace, SmartDevNet, PLDT Innolab, Smart Communications — which are co-presenting the event this year.

The 4th GOAB, a unique confab featuring the cutting-edge of the tech world in a laid-back atmosphere, is the first startup event to be held right after President Benigno S. Aquino III signed the bill creating the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) last month.

“Even better days are coming. The Philippine startup community is one of the sectors that have lobbied for the creation of the DICT. We hope ​DICT will continue to ​work together with ​various public-private stakeholders to ​empower startup communities to drive faster economic growth,” said Mon ​Ibrahim​,Deputy Executive Director.

With the theme “Empowering startups, leading change”, GOAB4 will once more highlight communities of startups or innovation-driven enterprises based on software or apps, which have seen remarkable growth in the Philippines in the last few years.

“We are looking at startups taking the lead in strategically leveraging opportunities offered by a bigger regional market of ten countries with some 617 million people and a combined GDP of US $2.1 trillion opened up by the Asean integration,” added ​Ibrahim.

He said GOAB can be a platform in putting Philippine startups at the forefront of change by opening doors to investors and capital from within the ​ASEAN​ region along with ​North ​American, European, Japanese and other big investors.

The first three GOAB confabs have yielded positive results, including the formulation of the Philippine startup roadmap which is now being pursued by the government and the community paving the way for local startups to achieve success.

Earlier this year, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) also launched SlingshotPH, a development program that helps startups accelerate their business.

Tina Amper, founder of TechTalks.ph which has been instrumental in conceptualizing GOAB​, noted that the conference has grown to attract a bigger and more diverse audience since ​GOAB’s​ debut in September 2013 in Boracay.

Amper said those who are into digital technology, web design, and innovation should not miss this opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the industry and meet the key players in the tech startup world.

“The Philippines’ remarkable work-play environment complemented by the famous Filipino hospitality and a unique cultural mix of East and West makes it the natural cultural doorway to the ​ASEAN​ for geeks and investors alike,” said Amper.

Organized by TechTalks.ph and the Department of Science and Technology – Information and Communications Technology Office (DOTC-ICTO) and co-presented by PLDT SME Nation, Ideaspace and SmartDevNet, GOAB4 will be held on August 25-26 at the Bellevue Hotel in Panglao, Bohol.

Some of the brightest minds in the industry from the USA and Singapore will be on hand in the 2016 GOAB. Invited to speak in the confab are Techstars co-founder and managing partner David Brown, Startup Weekend co-founder Marc Nager, Chris McCann of Greylock Partners,Crowdsourcing Week founder and CEO Epi Ludvik Nekaj, ​500 Startups Managing Partner/Investor Khailee Ng, 500 Startups corporate innovation director Arnaud Bonzom, Zalora Philippines Managing Director Constantine Robertz, PLDT SME Nation head Mitch Locsin, Ideaspace.ph Managing Director Diane Eustaquio, ​TechTalks chief content officer Robert Cristobal, Citrix principal UX designer Philip McKay, and STAC Silicon Valley president Cristina Laskowski.
