WHAT’S YOUR DENGUE STORY?

When my third son, Zenn was nine years old, he had a high fever that went for three days. When we brought him to the pediatrician to be tested, he was diagnosed with dengue. During that year, the school my son went to had a very high number of infected students due to the outbreak in Dipolog. Because of the results of the tests, my son had to be confined to the hospital immediately. Having faith in the efficacy of FERN-C, I gave my son Dr. Obusan’s prescribed dosage of 10 capsules every hour while he is awake. Like a miracle, Zenn recovered in two days without the need of blood transfusions and expensive medicine. While most patients paid close to 29,000 pesos for their confinement in the infirmary and for their treatment, I only had to pay 700 pesos for his brief stay. Thanks to FERN-C, my son got well!

During the 2007 dengue outbreak in Bohol, we gave out FERN-C capsules to hospital wards with less priviledged children who were infected with the disease. We prescribed these kids to take four capsules every two hours. It was really amazing to know that these kids were able to be released in a span of just two to three days. Then last year (2009), it happened. My brother got struck with dengue. Immediately, I asked him to take six capsules of FERN-C every two hours before sending him to the doctor to be examined. The results turned out well. He didn’t need a blood transfusion and was released the following day.

My daughters got sick with dengue and were confined in the hospital. They were diagnosed to have reached stage two of the disease with symptoms that included nosebleeds. The doctors prescribed that they have blood transfusions. Upon learning this, I consulted with Dr. Amelia Obusan who FERN, Inc. President, Tommanny Tan referred to me. The kind doctor told me that there is no cure for dengue which truly related to what I have observed in the hospital that what they were using for treatment was paracetamol, which was administered only to alleviate the fever. She prescribed that I give my daughters 2000 mg. of FERN-C every hour. I did as I was told and I’m truly grateful that my daughters were cured!

About Dengue

Dengue is transmitted by the bite of an Aedes mosquito infected with any one of the four dengue viruses. It occurs in tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world. Symptoms appear 3—14 days after the infective bite. Dengue fever is a febrile illness that affects infants, young children and adults.

Symptoms range from a mild fever, to incapacitating high fever, with severe headache, pain behind the eyes, muscle and joint pain, and rash. There are no specific antiviral medicines for dengue. It is important to maintain hydration. Use of acetylsalicylic acid (e.g. aspirin) and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. Ibuprofen) is not recommended.

Dengue haemorrhagic fever (fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, bleeding) is a potentially lethal complication, affecting mainly children. Early clinical diagnosis and careful clinical management by experienced physicians and nurses increase survival of patients.

The Rains Are Here Again. And So Are Those Killer Mosquitoes Carrying The Dengue Virus.

The rains are here again. And so are those killer mosquitoes carrying the dengue virus. In a year’s time, thousands of Filipinos get sick from dengue, and many have died as a result. Symptoms include two to five days of high fever, which may be followed by bleeding, shock, and death.

The danger is real. If Kris Aquino and her kids could get dengue, then anyone can get sick from this deadly virus.

In order to prevent dengue, we need to hunt down those killer mosquitoes, but that’s easier said than done. Here are 10 strategies to do it.

1) Clean up your backyard. Mosquitoes love to stay in dark and damp areas. So, if your garage is littered with boxes and assorted junks, clean them up or throw them away. Don’t let them become mosquito havens. Schedule a weekend clean-up day.

2) Empty containers with stagnant water. The dengue-carrying mosquitoes breed in stagnant water. This means that flowerpots, garbage cans, aquariums, unused swimming pools, tires, and other mud and piles are potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes. So after the rains fill them with water, throw the water away. Next time, keep these containers closed and upside down. Flower vase water should also be replaced weekly.

3) Check your surroundings for stagnant water. Some ornamental plants have this whorl or cup-like leaves that can hold water. Beautiful to behold but deadly in design. Turn them over and throw the water away. Upturned coconut shells are also notorious for holding water. Non-moving rivers, especially in squatter areas, are full of mosquito eggs.

4) Close your doors and windows. Some people open their doors in the morning for a whiff of fresh air. They also believe that mosquitoes would leave the house and go into the sunlight. But my advice is to keep your doors shut at all times. If it’s too stuffy, then place a screen door that keeps the flies and mosquitoes outside.

5) Spray insecticide regularly. To rid your house of mosquitoes, flies, and cockroaches, spray insecticides every few days. Make sure you spray those dark corners, crevices, and cabinets. You’ll be amazed at the number of vermins you’ll find dead in the morning. Just make sure that household members are not exposed to the insecticide as they are not the target. Just spray selected rooms and keep people out for at least two hours.

6) Wear pants, pajamas, long sleeves, and socks. Mosquitoes are attracted to our breath as we exhale so they know how to reach us even in the dark. And I guess they love bare, plump skin, especially that of the kids who don’t shoo them away and let them suck as much blood as they want. So better ask your school authorities to let the kids wear pants and rubber shoes. They’ll love it.

7) Put on Off lotion or use mosquito nets. If your kids are going hiking, camping or out of school, you can apply insect repellants like Off lotion. Kids like to play outdoors and are prime targets of these mosquitoes. You can wipe it on selected areas of your kid’s clothing, like the collar, sleeves, and just some on the skin. Avoid applying lotion on eyes, mouth or hands.

8) Kill those mosquitoes. When it comes to dengue, it’s either kill or be killed. Instruct everyone to kill as many mosquitoes and flies as they can. Once you’ve got them trapped in your bathroom, show no mercy. Don’t be bothered by your conscience since mosquitoes belong to the forest, not in our homes.

9) Involve the whole community. The best way to defeat dengue is if the whole barangay is aware of the threat. Ask the barangay to schedule a clean-up day. The danger is in those empty houses and lots, which are excellent breeding places for mosquitoes. Get your barangay into the act. Become a volunteer to monitor and clean up your surroundings.

“I was diagnosed that I have acute myocardial infarction and acute bronchitis. My daughter told me to take at least 10 capsules a day for 5 days. Instead of 1 month confinement in the hospital, my doctor decided that I can be released and go home and just take a complete rest. After 5 days, I was detected to have less hypertension and low level of cholesterol in result of my diagnose. Thanks to FERN-C.”

“Hello! FERN C works wonders to me and my friends whom I introduced the product. Take Dra. Jesusita DG Ruiz’ experience. Last year, during the holiday season, she and her friends are celebrating the holiday season and she said she was drunk with pear wine. She did consume the bottle of pear wine alone! At midnight she experienced severe stomach pains. No antacid in sight, she saw the FERN C that she bought from me and took 2 capsules. She slept soundly that night and rose early the following day to tend her garden. Passersby are surprised to saw her tending the garden with no hang-over. Dra. Jesusita DG Ruiz is a registered FERNchisee from Olongapo City.

My personal experience is very inspiring. A friend advised me to consume 5-5-5 capsules of FERN C daily for health and beauty reasons; (who doesn’t want to feel and look young?)Instead of taking 5-5-5 capsules. I took 8-8-8 daily for one month; that means 12,000 mg of FERN C daily, imitating Dr. Linus Pauling’s dosage. Know what happened? I am in my menopausal stage last year and stopped menstruating. After the 8-8-8 capsules dosage daily for one month, my monthly period returns. Nonetheless, I discontinue the dosage ‘coz I’m tired of having my monthly period. Tired of experiencing three months of profuse bleeding during 1993 due to my benign myoma which was irritated by a pain reliever, a synthetic drugs that I stupidly took. Thanks to FERN C and my (disciplined diet ?) myoma was gone without undergoing hysterectomy. To all golden ladies (those nearing their golden age) why not try the 8-8-8 capsules dosage daily. “

“FERN C was introduced to me by my friend when we had our CFC Hope Weekend at Baguio. I told her that I can’t take vitamin C more than 200 mg because of stomach upset and ulcer. She gave me 4 capsules so I can try it. After one week she called me and she heard through the phone that I’m having difficulty in breathing because of severe allergic rhinitis. I almost cried because of uneasiness and felt the numbness of my head, as if lacking in oxygen; have experienced this 3 times. She told me to swallow 2 capsules of FERN-C; I have no choice coz I really felt bad, so I took 2 capsules. To my surprise the numbness in my head disappear after an hour and I can tolerate the 1000 mg, without stomach upset. I purchased 2 boxes so that I can get my succeeding purchases at a lower price, but to my surprise it has a good business opportunity. Likewise, I told my ENT about my experience with FERN-C. My Doctor told me she’s also taking FERN-C. My husband & I are planning to get a fernchise.

Another experience was when I felt pains all over my body. I took 2 capsules of FERN-C and after an hour I perspired and that made me feel good. There was also an instance when my 2 sons can’t go to their respective offices because they felt bad as if they will have fever so I gave them 2 capsules of FERN-C. Two hours passed and they were able to go to their offices. “

“Fern-C was introduced to me during my vacation last June 2006, in Dumaguete City from a cousin. First, I took it as a test because I’m having a very slow metabolism and decided to take it daily for my entire 3 weeks that I was there. I came back in the US and finished the whole box. After seeing the good results that I expected, I decided to purchase 4 more boxes and will continue to use them when I can. I’m very thankful to this “fern-c thingy”. “

CANCER
“I am Susan, a 7 year breast cancer survivor living on an 80% vegetarian diet, taking my health supplements including 2,000 mg of vitamin c.
My cancer came back in February 2007. Had a lumpectomy in May 2007. Like 7 years ago, refused to do chemotherapy as it hurts more in the pocket and body more than the condition of my disease.
Luckily, the return was confined to my left breast (it was on the right the first time). I did the fern c calibration. oh boy, I tell you…it took 18,000 mg before I had LBM; then I adjusted it to bowel tolerance which is 10,000 mg. That is what I am taking today together with my diet and other supplements which I kept taking.
Good luck to all fellow survivors!”
Susan

“This is Carlota, I would like to share my experience regarding Fern-c. So proud to say na unang inom ko pa lang ng fern-c ay nakatulog agad ako ng mahimbing, meaning, narelieved ang insomia ko. Then my son, na hatsing ng hatsing one morning, I just told him to drink 2 capsules of fern-c, after lunch ay di na sya nag hatsing. Kaya nga i recommended it to my friends, so that all of us can feel the benefits of fern-c. “
Carlota Diaz Molino, Bacoor, Cavite

ARTHRITIS
“I am only 43 yrs. old but was already suffering from arthritis. My condition greatly improved and continues to improve with fern C. Even my son, who used to come home so tired from school, now has the energy to play basketball after school because of the Fern-C. With these health improvements, I decided to become a fernchise-C so I could share this great product to all my friends.”

Vitamin C and Nutrition

Vitamin C and Nutrition

VITAMIN C is a water soluble antioxidant that is essential for life and for maintaining optimal health. It is required for at least 300 metabolic functions in the body. There are very few, if any, biological functions that do not require Vitamin C.

Vitamin C plays a vital role in keeping the immune system working efficiently and helps build collagen. the stabilizing tissue in the bone, muscle and skin. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C is one of our best defenses against the cell- damaging effects of free radicals.

Almost all animals and plants produce their own Vitamin C. There are some exceptions, such as humans and a small number of other animals. Since the body cannot manufacture Vitamin C, it must be obtained through diet in the form of supplements.

The non-acidic Vitamin C is a remarkably effective form, especially for those suffering from chronic illnesses such as cancer. This type of Vitamin C enters the body four times faster than standard acidic forms and stays in the body tissues longer.

pH Factor and Cancer

PH means POTENTIALITY to HYDROGEN It measures equilibrium of acid and base in the body The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen-rich the fluid is. The lower the pH reading, the more acidic and oxygen-deprived the fluid is.

The pH range is from 0 to 14, with 7.0 being neutral. Anything above 7.0 is alkaline, anything below 7.0 is considered acidic. All healthy humans began life with most of the body fluids and tissues in a slightly alkaline state (high pH).

Over time, in modern society, the body tissues and fluids often become acidic (low pH) from the food, drink, prescription drugs, pollution and stress, that are absorbed on a daily basis At PH level 6.9, the body starts to become susceptible to common viral infections like colds, cough and flu Cancer cells thrive inside the body at a pH of 5.5. The lower the pH level the more acidic the person is, thus, the higher the uric acid and other toxins in the body, the more prone it is to sickness.

*
When we are acidic, we are more prone to chronic diseases and cancer.
*
When we are alkaline, we are able to stay away from diseases and cancer
