Release = Self-reliance Go to the people Live among them Learn from them Plan with them Work with them Start with what they know Build on what they have Teach by showing Learn by doing Not a showcase But a pattern Not odds and ends but a system Not to conform but to transform Not relief but release. -- Dr. James Yen
What are the dimensions and importance of the Continuum of Care?The first dimension of the Continuum of Care is time - from pre-pregnancy, throughpregnancy, childbirth, and the early days and years of life
The second dimension of the Continuum of Care is place - linking the various levels of home, community,and health facilities (Figure 2. Connecting care giving between households and health facilities to reducematernal, newborn, and child deaths).

Danger Signs of Newborn (1)Feeding less or not feeding at all • Not able to suck at the breast when the mother tried to put the baby to the breast several times over a few hours: possibility of severe illness • The baby was feeding well after birth but has stopped feeding well now: possibility of infection 69
Danger Signs of Newborn (2) Convulsions• Convulsion indicates severe illness in the baby• The baby’s arms and legs may become stiff• The baby may stop breathing and become blue• Recurring movement of a part of the body like twitching of the mouth or blinking of the eyes 70
Danger Signs of Newborn (3)High or very low temperature • When a baby has a serious infection, the body can become very cold or very hot. The temperature should stay in between 35.5℃ to 37.4℃. • The baby with higher or lower temperature of this range must be referred to the hospital urgently 71
Danger Signs of Newborn (4) Local Infection Most common infection occurs in: 1. Umbilicus: - Pus coming out of the umbilical stump - The skin where the stump is attached to is red 2. Skin: Skin boils filled with pus 3. Eyes: Pus coming out from the eyesAny local infection needs treatment, therefore, you need to refer the baby to the health center 72
Danger Signs of Newborn (5) Yellow soles• Many babies have some jaundice (yellow eyes and skin) in the first week of life, and disappears in a few days. This is a normal condition.• If the baby develops yellow soles, this means that jaundice is severe and can be dangerous ⇒Urgently refer to the health center 73

Care during the first few weeks after birth Newborn Screening • A very simple procedural test to see if the baby has harmful or potentially fatal disorders. • It is a simple blood test done to the baby from 48 to 72 hours after birth.CHT-80
Newborn Screening cont…• The disorder can be managed and the child can grow up healthy if diagnosed early!• If case was not detected, it could cause mental retardation or death of the child. 78
Follow-up on the status of immunization and Family Planning• Check the Immunization Record to see if the mother and her baby has been receiving necessary immunization;• Check the Family Planning Record to see if the mother has received the consultation on FP. If not, encourages her to attend the consultation. 79
ImmunizationImmunization protects the babyagainst several infectious diseases.Check the Immunization record tosee if the mother and her babyhas received necessaryimmunizations. CHT- 86
Feeding Recommendations and Exclusive Breastfeeding • A baby should be given only breastmilk for the first 6 months of life. • Breastmilk is the best food for the baby and provides all the food and fluids that the baby needs. Exclusive BreastfeedingCHT- 82
Exclusive Breastfeeding cont…• Breastmilk has antibodies that protect the baby from illnesses.• During the exclusive breastfeeding period, giving other food or fluids, even water, can be harmful for the baby.• The mother should breastfeed on demand, day and night. This will promote milk production so the baby will be healthy and grow well. CHT- 83

Package 2promotion of adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health and rights (AYSRHR) and prevention, treatment and care of STI and HIV&AIDS
Adolescence and Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (AYSRHR): Concepts and Realities
Adolescence• is the period in life when an individual is no longer a child, but not yet an adult.• is the period when the individual undergoes enormous physical and psychological changes.
Philippine context• 1 out of 10 Filipina 15-19 years old is already mother (4,702,400 women)• 3 in 10 births (33%) by teenage mothers were unwanted at the time of conception• 46% of abortion attempts occurred among 20-24 y.o and 16% among teenagers• HIV and other STDs 15-24 y.o HIV infection tripled bet. 2007-2008 (from 41-110per year. 29% increase in 2009.(source NDHS, 2008-2009)
Reproductive RightsThese include the rights of couples and individuals to:• Make free and informed decisions about their reproductive lives, including the number, timing and spacing of children• Attain the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health
Sexual RightsThese include the rights of all individuals to:• Make free and informed decisions on all matters relating to their sexuality• Be free of discrimination, coercion, or violence in their sexual lives and decisions• Expect and demand equality, full consent, mutual respect and shared responsibility in sexual relationships

MODES OF TRANSMISSIONA. Unprotected penetrative sex with an HIV infected partner a.1 Male to female, male to male or female to female a.2 Anal, Vaginal or OralB. Infected blood and blood products b.1 Blood transfusion b.2 Organ transplantation b.3 Sharing of used needles and syringes b.4 Occupational hazardsC. Infected mother to child c.1 Delivery c.2 Breastfeeding
4 REQUIREMENTS FOR TRANSMISSION• Carrier of the virus (Medium) – Semen – Vaginal / Cervical fluid – Milk – Blood• Mode of transmission – Unprotected Penetrative Sex – Mother-to-Child – Blood transfusion / infected blood• Amount of virus – Is it enough?• Entry of virus – Cuts – Sores – Abscess • Should get into the BLOODSTREAM
HIV Progression To AIDS Time when the HIV is introduced into the body and HIV Infection starts to multiply and spread within the body. > Approx. 3-6 months after HIV infection > Individuals are infectious at this stage > “false negative” even when he/she is positive Window Period > No symptoms > Individual will now test positive > 30 – 50% of people suffer from a flu-like illness (fever, Seroconversion swollen lymph nodes, night sweats, recurrent headache, skin rash & cough) > Test positive but no signs & symptomsAsymptomatic Phase (10-15 years or more) > S/he is in high risk of transmission stage Symptoms: • Weight loss • Thrush HIV related illness • Chronic diarrhea • TB • Prolonged fever > “Terminal stage” of HIV infection. > The immune system is severely weakened in PLWA, and cannot cope with infection AIDS > Life expectancy is 1-2 yrs if no treatment. CD4 count less than 200
Three Main Points• There is a causal link between infection with STIs and increased transmission of HIV• Preventing and treating STIs will reduce the number of new HIV infections• You can make a difference by helping people prevent, identify and treat STIs
What is the STI-HIV Connection?• Similar behaviors put people at risk of both STIs and HIV• A current STI can increase risk of getting HIV by 2-5 times• People with both HIV infection and another STI have increased HIV viral loads and can more easily infect others with HIV• People with HIV can have more serious complications of other STIs
STIs• ulcerative: syphilis, chancroid, genital herpes• inflammatory: gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis• US has highest rates of STIs in industrialized countries – especially chlamydia, gonorrhea and genital herpes
Many STIs Have No Symptoms• In women: over 50% with gonorrhea and 70% with Chlamydia had no symptoms• In men: 68-92% with gonorrhea and 92% with Chlamydia reported no symptoms
Epidemiologic Evidence• Researchers have observed a strong association between having STIs and HIV in a number of studies.• The association is termed “epidemiological synergy”• 2-5 fold increased risk for HIV infection among persons who have other STDs.
Why the Increased Risk• Ulcers and inflamed areas provide an easy portal of entry• STIs attract T-helper cells to the infected area• Even asymptomatic STis can cause abnormal cellular changes that allow easier passage of infectious agents.• STIs increase viral load and shedding of HIV
Conclusions• There is a direct link between other STIs and HIV transmission• Early identification and treatment of STIs will reduce HIV transmission• You can make a difference by helping people know these facts and working with those at risk to get screened and treated
Package 3prevention and treatment of infectious diseases
Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another.
Contraction, Transmission, and Stages of Disease (1)• Transmission of Infectious Disease – Interaction of Host, Infectious Agent, and Environment – Reservoirs – Direct vs. Indirect Transmission • Routes of Exposure – Bloodborne, airborne, sexual, fecal-oral, and foodborne • Risk of Infection – Theoretical vs. measurable

Package 4prevention and treatment of lifestyle diseases
“The causes of almost all cancers and diseases are improper diet and lifestyle! The treatment should be geared to lifestyle modification instead of medications.”
I. HOW SERIOUS IS THE PROBLEM?• The Global Picture – CVD and Diabetes are the major causes of premature deaths – CVD- approximately 10M of the total 15M CVD deaths occur each year – 7M deaths each year from Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and 4.5M from Stroke
The Regional Picture (Region – 8) A) CVD – 1st leading cause of death at 165.73% (2009) B) COPD – 2nd leading cause of death at 66.69% (2009) C) CANCER/NEOPLASM – 3rd leading cause of dealth at 23.81 % (2009) D) DIABETES MILLITUS – 9th leading cause of death at 11.65%
FOUR MAJOR CHRONIC DISEASES1. CVD (Cardio-Vascular Disease)2. DIABETES MELLITUS (Type 1 & 2)3. COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulomonary Disease)4. CANCER
The Regional Picture (Region – 8) A) CVD – 1st leading cause of death at 165.73% (2009) B) COPD – 2nd leading cause of death at 66.69% (2009) C) CANCER/NEOPLASM – 3rd leading cause of dealth at 23.81 % (2009) D) DIABETES MILLITUS – 9th leading cause of death at 11.65%
Heart disease and stroke kill some 17 million people a year, which is almost one-third of all deaths globally. In the Philippines, facts show: CVD - no. 1 killer in the country Every hour, 9 Filipinos die of CVD1 out of 4 deaths in the country is due to CVD 1 out of 10 Filipinos aged 15 years old and above has hypertension and high blood pressure
II. CAUSES and RISK FACTORSA. Diseases of the Heart and Blood Vessels (CVD) 1. HYPERTENSION - sustained systolic BP of 140mmhg or more and sustained diastolic BP of 90mmhg or more based on measurement done at least 2 visits taken at 1 week apart “Correct diagnosis of hypertension depends on correct BP-taking technique!”
• Hypertension - is defined as a sustained elevation in mean arterial pressure - it is not a single disease state but a disorder with many causes, a variety of symptoms & a range of responses to therapy. - hypertension is also risk factor for the development of other CVD’s like coronary heart disease & stroke.
RISK FACTORS: 1. Older people 35 years old & above 2. Family history of HPN 3. Overweight and Obesity 4. High Salt intake 5. Excess alcohol intake 6. Smoking 7. Diabetics 8. Those on birth control pills 9. Post-menopausal females
SYMPTOMS OF HYPERTENSION : At times, high BP may present when patients have:• 1. Headache• 2. Nape pain• 3. Dizziness• 4. Epistaxis• 5. Blurring of vision
LIFESTYLE MODIFICATION to MANAGEHYPERTENSION :• 1. Weight Reduction. - maintain normal body weight (BMI of 18.5 – 24.9) 2. Adopt a balanced eating plan. - consume a diet risk in fruits, vegetables & low fat dairy products with a reduced content of saturated & total fat.
• 3. Dietary sodium reduction - reduce dietary sodium intake to no more than 100mEq/L(2.4g. Sodium) 4. Physical Activity - engage in regular aerobic physical activity such as brisk walking (at least 30 min. per day, most days of the week)
• 5. Moderation of alcohol consumption - limit consumption to no more than 2 drinks per day (1oz or 30 ml. ethanol, eg. 24oz beer, 10oz wine, or 3 oz. go-proof whisky) in most men & no more than 1 drink per day in women & lighter weight persons.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF HYPERTENSION IS NOTCONTROLLED?• The HEART - When the heart pumps blood into a narrow artery, it has to work harder to meet the body’s demand for oxygen, nutrients & other essential. - The heart muscle progressively stretches & thickens, enlarges & subsequently fails.
- When there is total blockage of one of the arteries supplying blood to the heart muscle, a myocardial infarction ensues. This usually presents as severe chest pain & is definitely medical emergency.
• The ARTERIES - Arteries are vessels that carry the blood throughout the body. When the BP is high, the arteries become scarred, hardened & less elastic. - They may not be able to meet the demand of the tissues, & hence the tissues and organs cannot function well.
• The KIDNEYS -High BP cause narrowing of the arteries to the kidneys which in turn can cause kidney failure.The BRAIN - Progressive narrowing of the blood vessels to the brain will decrease blood flow & will cause brain cells to die.
• - Vessels of the brain maybe logged causing a stroke due to thrombosis & hemorrhage or rupture. Like a heart attack, the clogging of brain vessels is an emergency.
Stroke Symptoms:• 1. Weakness• 2. Numbness• 3. Paralysis of a part of the body• 4. Difficulty in the speech• 5. Slurred speech• 6. Dizziness• 7. Nausea• 8. Vomiting
• The EYES - Like other parts of the body, the blood vessels to the eyes may become narrowed & clogged leading to impaired vision & even blindness• These outcomes can be avoided by regular intake of medications & strict blood pressure control
II. CAUSES and RISK FACTORS2. CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE (CAD) heart disease caused by the impaired coronary blood flow or known as “Ischemic Heart Disease”. -Most common is the Atherosclerosis- narrowing of blood vessels because of the accumulation of fats and cholesterol.
CHEST PAINA heart attack occurs when an artery supplying your heart with blood andoxygen becomes blocked. With each passing minute, more tissue is deprivedof oxygen and deteriorates or dies. Restoring blood flow within the first hourwhen most damage occurs is critical to survival of the tissue.
CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE(CAD)• - is heart disease caused by impaired coronary blood flow. It is also known as Ischemic Heart Disease.• - when the coronary arteries become narrowed or clogged, supply of blood & oxygen to the heart muscle is affected.
• - when there is decreased oxygen supplied to the heart, muscle, chest pain (called angina) occurs.• - CAD can cause M.I. (heart attack), arrhythmias, heart failure, sudden death.
CAUSES:• The most common cause is ATHEROSCLEROSIS which is the thickening of the inside walls of arteries or narrowing of blood vessels because of the accumulation of cholesterol & fats.• If the obstruction of blood supply to the heart is severe & prolonged, this may lead to HEART ATTACK. If the obstruction in the blood vessels supplying the brain, this is called STROKE.
RISK FACTORS OF CAD:• Elevated blood lipids & cholesterol level(hyperlipidemia)• Hypertension• Smoking• Diabetes Mellitus• Overweight & Obesity• Physical Inactivity/Sedentary Lifestyle• Stress• Heredity/family History• Male Sex• Increasing Age
LIFESTYLE MODIFICATIONS FOR CAD:• Promote regular physical activity exercises• Encourage proper nutrition particularly by limiting intake of saturated fats & increase LDL, limiting salt intake & increasing intake of dietary fiber by eating more vegetables, fruits, unrefined cereals & wheat bread.
• Maintain body weight & prevent obesity through proper nutrition & physical activity/exercise.• Advice smoking cessation for active smokers & prevent exposure to second-hand smoke.• Early diagnosis, prompt treatment & control of diabetes & hypertension.
II. CAUSES and RISK FACTORS:3. CEREBROVASCULAR DISEASE or STROKE- loss or alteration of bodily function that results from an insufficient supply of blood to some parts of the brain. If the blood flow is obstructed to any part of the brain for several minutes, it loses its energy supply and becomes injured which leads to paralysis, slurring of speech or disability.
CEREBROVASCULAR DISEASE OR STROKE• It is the loss or alteration of bodily function that result from an insufficient supply of blood to some parts of the brain. If the blood flow is obstructed to any part, the brain loses its energy supply & becomes injured. If blood is obstructed for more than several minutes, injury to the brain cells becomes permanent & tissues dies in the affected region resulting in cerebral infarction.
• Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability. It can lead to weakness or paralysis usually of one side of the body. Often, the person has slurring of speech or even inability to talk.
CAUSES :• Almost all strokes are caused by occlusion of cerebral vessels by either thrombi or emboli. 1. Thrombus usually occurs in atherosclerotic blood vessels. This is usually seen in older people & may occur in a person at rest.
• 2. Embolic stroke is caused by a moving blood clot usually from a thrombus in the left heart that becomes lodged in a small artery through which it cannot pass. Its onset is usually sudden.• 3. Hemorrhagic stroke is the most fatal type of stroke due to rupture of intracerebral blood vessels. The most common predisposing factor is hypertension. Other causes of hemorrhage are aneurysm, trauma, erosion of vessel by tumors, & blood disorders. It usually occurs suddenly, usually when the person is active.
RISK FACTORS OF STROKE:• Increasing age• Sex- more women die than men of stroke• Heredity• Hypertension• Cigarette smoking• Diabetes mellitus• Heart disease• Season & climate• Excessive alcohol intake• Certain kinds of drug abuse
LIFESTYLE MODIFICATION FOR STROKE:• Treatment & control of hypertension• Smoking cessation & promoting a smoke-free environment• Limit alcohol consumption• Encourage proper nutrition- low fat, low sodium, high in fiber foods• Avoid intravenous drug abuse & cocaine• Prevent all other risk factors of atherosclerosis• Stress management
CVA Risk Factors are:1. Increasing age 552. Sex- more women than men die of stroke3. Heredity( family history)4. Hypertension5. Cigarette smoking6. Diabetes mellitus- usually have high cholesterol and are overweight
CVA Risk Factors are:7. Heart disease8. High Red Blood Cell (RBC) count- more red blood cells thicken the blood and make clots more likely.9. Season and climate- common in periods of extremely hot or very cold temperatures.10. Socioeconomic factors- people of lower income and educational level have a higher risk of stroke.
CVA Risk Factors are:11. Excessive Alcohol Intake- can raise blood pressure contributing to obesity cancer, cause heart failure and lead to stroke.12. Drug abuse – cocaine use may lead to stroke, heart attack and other CVD complications.
B. DIABETES MELLITUS• Group of metabolic disorder characterized by glucose intolerance with hyperglycemia present - Type I – Insulin Dependent (IDDM) – Type II – Non-insulin Dependent (NIDDM) – FBS 109 mg% (normal) 126 mg% (possible DM)
TYPES OF DIABETES:• 1. Type 1 diabetes is insulin-dependent mellitus(IDDM) - characterized by absolute lack of insulin due to damaged pancreas,prone to develop ketosis, dependent on insulin injections. - genetic, environment, or maybe acquired due to viruses (e.g. mumps, congenital rubella) & chemical toxins (e.g. Nitrosamines)
DIABETES MELLITUS• is one of the leading causes if disability in person over 4 years old. More than half of diabetes persons will die of coronary heart disease. Coronary artery disease tends to occur at an earlier age & with greater security in person with diabetes. It also increases the risk of dying of cardiovascular disease like heart attack or stroke among women.
• Diabetes mellitus is not a single disease. It is a genetically & clinically heterogenous group of metabolic disorders characterized by fucose intolerance, with hyperglycemia present at time of diagnosis.
CAUSES :• It is easier to think of diabetes as a interaction between 2 factors : - GENETIC PREDISPOSITION (diabetogenic genes) + ENVIRONMENT/LIFESTYLE (obesity, nutrition, lack of exercise)• Lifestyle includes obesity, nutrition & lack of physical activity or exercise.• Specific causes depend on the type of diabetes.
• 2. Type II diabetes is non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus(NIDDM) - characterized by fasting hyperglycemia despite availability of insulin. - possible causes include impaired insulin secretion, peripheral insulin esistance & increased hepatic glucose production. - usually occurs in older overweight persons (about 80%).
Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus:• Abnormal thirst• Frequent urination• Extreme hunger• Drowsiness and fatigue• Visual disturbances• Remarkable weight loss• Itching and infection of the skin and genitalia
RISK FACTORS OF TYPE 2 DM:• Family history of diabetes• Overweight (BMI 23kg/m2) & obesity (BMI>30kg/m2)• Sedentary lifestyle• Hypertension• High density lipoprotein<35mg/dl (0.90mmol/L)& or triglyceride level> 250mg/dl(2.82mmol/L)• History of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) or delivery of a baby weighing 9lbs.(4.0kgs.)• Previously identified to have impaired glucose tolerance (IGT)
COMPLICATION OF DIABETES MELLITUS:• Acute complications include diabetic ketoacidosis & hypoglycemia especially in type I diabetes.• Chronic complications cause most of the disability associated with the disease. These include renal disease (nephropathy), blindness (retinopathy), coronary artery disease & stroke, neuropathies & foot ulcers.
LIFESTYLE MODIFICATIONS FOR DIABETESMELLITUS:• Be meticulous about blood sugar control.• Be meticulous about blood pressure control.• Maintain body weight & prevent obesity.• Encourage proper nutrition – eat more DIETARY FIBER, reduce salt & fat intake, avoid simple sugars like cakes & pastries; avoid junk foods.
• Promote regular physical activity & exercise to prevent obesity, hypercholesterolemia & enhance insulin action in the body.• Advice smoking cessation for active smokers & prevent exposure to second-hand smoke.
COPD C hronic O bstructive P ulmonary An airway flow disease D isease A very common problem224 Tobacco and COPD
C. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)• Characterized by cough, sputum production and dyspnea upon exertion
CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIONS PULMONARYDISEASE• It is a disease characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. The airflow limitation is usually both progressive & associated with an abnormal inflammatory response of the lungs to noxious particles or gases.• The lungs undergo permanent structural change, which leads to varying degrees of hypoxemia & hyper apnea. This explains the breathlessness & frequent cough associated with COPD.
CAUSES & RISK FACTORS:• COPD is usually due to chronic bronchitis & emphysema, both of which are due to cigarette smoking.• Cigarette smoking is the primary cause of COPD.
COPD• Chronic Bronchitis• Emphysema• These two are the most common diagnoses given to patients228 Tobacco and COPD
COMPLICATIONS:• Respiratory failure• Cardiovascular disease – pulmonary hypertension, which develops late in the course COPD), is the major cardiovascular complication of COPD & is associated with the development of corpulmonale & a poor prognosis.
The wheeze• Inspiration • widens the airway Expiration narrows the airway WHEEZING IS WORSE DURING EXPIRATION AND MAY BE THE FIRST SIGN OF AIRWAY NARROWING231 Tobacco and COPD
90%• 90% of COPD patients are current or former smokers Tobacco and COPD 232
Pathology of COPD• Small and large airway narrowing caused by – Epithelial thickening – Increased mucus cells – Hyperplasia – Fibrosis – Mucus plugs 233 Tobacco and COPD
Secondary Effects• Renal dysfunctions• Weight loss• Muscular wasting• Osteoporosis all complicating factors in COPD Tobacco and COPD 234
D. Cancer- not all tumors are cancerous- Benign tumors grow slowly and do not spread while malignant tumors grow more rapidly, metastasize and cause death.
Causes and Risk factors of Cancer1. Heredity/ family history2. Carcinogens- maybe a chemical and environmental agent, radiation and viruses Many cancers are associated with lifestyle risk factors like: • Smoking • Dietary factors • Alcohol consumption
Other Causes of Cancer• Radiation - can cause cancer including ultraviolet rays from sunlight, x-rays, radioactive chemicals, etc.• Viruses - found in cervical cancer, liver CA (hepa B virus), lymphoma and leukemia.
Example of Chemicals and Environmental Agents• Polycylic hydrocarbons found in cigarette smoke; industrial agents; found in food as smoked foods ( tinapa)• Aflatoxin – found in peanuts and peanut butter• Benzopyrene – found in charcoal broiled or smoked meat or fish (barbecue)“Avoid eating burned food and eat smoked food in moderation.”• Nitrosamines – used as preservatives in food like tocino, longganisa, bacon and hotdog
Nine Warning Signs of CancerC - change in bowel or bladder habitsA - a sore throat that does not healU - unusual bleeding or dischargeT - thickening or lump in breast or elsewhereI - indigestion or difficulty in swallowingO - obvious change in wart and moleN - nagging cough or hoarsenessU - unexplained anemiaS - sudden unexplained weight loss Acronym “CAUTION US” for Cancer
Screening Procedures1. Breast Cancer Breast self-exam monthly- a week after onset of menstruation2. Cervical Cancer Pap smear over 18 years old in between menses ( 2 weeks after)At risk are: - Sexually active - Multiple partners - Commercial sex workers
Screening Procedures3. Colon-rectal cancer - digital rectal exam4. Lung cancer - X-ray and sputum cytology
What is Healthy Lifestyle?• A way of life which promotes and protects one’s health and well-being• Practicing good health habits such as eating healthy diet, regular physical activity, staying smoke free, abstinence from alcohol or drinking in moderation• An integrated approach to non-communicable disease prevention and control and composition of programs like: CVD, Cancer, Diabetes, Asthma, COPD including nutrition.
PROMOTING PROPER NUTRITION• Eat 2-3 servings of vegetable each day, one serving of which is green or yellow leafy vegetables – Raw vegetable - 1 cup – Cooked vegetable - ½ cup• Eat at least 2 servings of fruit per day“The Filipino Diet Pyramid Food Guide for Today’s Lifestyle”
Do you know that beingoverweight or underweightincreases the risk of health problems?
Hypertension Heart DiseasesOVERWEIGHT Stroke Diabetes Cancer
A. OVERWEIGHT / OBESITY - Body fat can best be assessed using BMI. WEIGHT (kg) BMI = HEIGHT (m)2 BMI Result Condition • Less than 18.5 kg/m2 • Underweight • 18.6 – 22.9 kg/m2 • Healthy Weight • Greater than 23.0 kg/m2 • Overweight • 23.0 - 24.9 kg/m2 • At risk • 25.0 - 29.9 kg/m2 • Obese I • Greater than 30.0 kg/m2 • Obese II“Central OBESITY is a risk factor to HEART DISEASE and STROKE”
OVERWEIGHT / OBESITY WC = WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE Ideal WC for - • MEN = Less than 90 cm (35 inches) • WOMEN = Less than 80 cm (31.5 inches)“Waist Circumference greater than the above-mentioned value is not normal and the person is atrisk even if BMI result is normal.”
C. Cholesterol in BloodPhilippine Food According to Cholesterol Content: I. VERY HIGH CHOLESTEROL: Meat : Carabao’s Brain; Cow’s Brain; Cara Lungs Eggs : Duck; Chicken; Balut; Salted Duck’s Egg.II. MODERATE CHOLESTEROL: Meat : Cow’s Spleen/Lungs/Kidney; Pig Spleen and Lungs Poultry : Chicken LiverIII. LOW AMOUNT OF CHOLESTEROL: Meat & Poultry: Cow’s Liver & Small Intestines / Chicken Heart / Pig’s Liver and Tongue Fish/Shellfish : Large Crab ; Small Shrimps
C. Cholesterol in BloodPhilippine Food According to Cholesterol Content:IV. LOWEST CHOLESTEROL (99 mgs) Meat : Cow’s / Carabao’s Tongue & Uterine Pork Liempo Lean Beef and Pork Fish & Shellfish : Alimasag Lapu-lapu Salmon Kuhol Tulya Talaba Tangigue Tahong Bangus Chicken Meat & Egg White
C. Cholesterol in Blood Food High in Sodium Content (400 mg/ serving): • Soy Sauce • Corned Beef • Shrimp Paste • Cheese • Fish Sauces (Patis) • Carbonated Drinks • Fish Paste (Bagoong isda) • Pickles • Bacon • Tausi • Salted Peanuts/Crackers/Chips “Persons at risk of high blood cholesterol level and heart disease should limit intake of fatty meat cholesterol-rich food and saturated fats.” - Eat egg yolk 2-3 times a week - Chill meat or poultry broth until fat become solid then spoon-off the fat “sebo” before using the broth.
C. Cholesterol in Blood Types of Fats/Cholesterol: 1. Saturated fats raise blood cholesterol level ex: fat in meat, skin of chicken and ducks, butter, lard cream and milk products 2. Polyunsaturated fats lower total cholesterol level and LDL or bad cholesterol raise HDL ex: corn oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil 3. Monounsaturated fat lower LDL HDL remain unchanged ex: canola oil, olive oil
•Avoid oil or lard that is solid inroom temperature (tumitigas)•Use iodized salt but avoidexcessive intake of salty foods- topromote physical and mentaldevelopment and prevent iodinedeficiency disorder
Finally:•Manage weight effectively•Build healthy nutrition•Choose food wisely or an Acronym: •A = Aim for ideal body weight •B = Build healthy nutrition practices •C = Choose food wisely
2. PROMOTING SMOKE-FREE ENVIRONMENTLung Cancer• Most significant cause of death from cancer in the world• Major cause is tobacco, smoking particularly cigarette• Smokers body = 4000 +chemicals present in cigarette smoke and 43 are carcinogens
Cigarette produces 2 kinds of smoke: Mainstream or active smoker Sidestream or passive smokerHow does smoking harm us?•Responsible for 90% of all lung cancer•75% of chronic bronchitis and emphysema•25% of ischemic heart disease
KEY AREAS FOR PREVENTION ARE: 1. Promote proper nutrition 2. Encourages more physical activity and exercise 3. Promote a Smoke-free Environment and Smoking Cessation 4. Discourages excessive alcohol 5. Manage stress effectively 6. Regular health check-up for early diagnosis and prompt treatmentFactors that influence the increasing trend of lifestyle-related diseases worldwide: 1. Increasing life expectancy 2. Increasing urbanization 3. Increasing industrialization or globalization
PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND EXERCISEPHYSICAL ACTIVITY - Is something you do at home, like washing the dishes, sweeping the floor and cleaning the house. It is what you do outside the house like gardening. 60% – 85% of the adult population lead sedentary life.EXERCISE - Is a planned, structured and repetitive movement done to improve or maintain one or more components of physical fitness.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY:• Reduce the risk of dying from coronary heart disease (CAD)• Reduce the risk of having a 2nd heart attack in people whohave experienced heart attack.• Lowers bad cholesterol or LDL and increases goodcholesterol or HDL.• Lowers the risk of developing high blood pressure.•Lowers the risk of developing Type II Diabetes Melitus.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY:• Reduces the risk of developing colon cancer.• Help achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.• Reduces feelings of depression and feeling of stress• Help maintain healthy bones and muscles and joints.• Helps older adults become stronger and better able to movewithout becoming fatigued.
• We need to exercise to be physically fit• We need to exercise to improve our lungs• We need to exercise to build our muscles.• Exercise helps control diabetes – helps burncalories• Walking is a complete exercise. This is injury-free,sustaining and effective
• Frequency of exercise - 3 – 4 times a week• Intensity of exercise - For the older persons aged 50 years and above, the heart rate ratio is 40-50% of maximal heart rate.• Exercise time - For a start, 10 -15 minutes of exercise is good and gradually increase to 30 minutes.• For older persons - Walking, swimming, stretching, dancing, gardening, hiking are all excellent activities. Physical activity is a means to control joint swelling and joint pains in arthritis.
3. PROMOTING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND EXERCISE Consider the “FIT” Principle : F- Frequency of exercise = 3 to 4 x a week, spread only the week I- Intensity to exercise, the more intense the exercise, the faster the heart rate. T- Exercise a minimum of 30 minutes each time. Start with 10 – 15 minutes then increase gradually to 30 minutes.To lose fat for weight do the aerobic exercise. Aerobic Exercises - may be walking, jogging, running, swimming and biking. Anaerobic Exercises - may be weightlifting, push-ups or pull-ups.
3. PROMOTING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND EXERCISE Why warm – up? Prepare the body for exercise Circulation of the blood needs to be redirected Protect the articular space and prevent injury Cooling Down – is just as important as warm-ups. Our body needs to slow down at its resting level. 5 – 10 minutes cooling down is the minimum.
PREVENT ILLNESS... DO INTESTINAL CLEANSING Take virgin coconut oiland/or papaya everyday!
WANNA LIVE LONGER1. EXERCISE for 30 minutes, most days of the week.- this can gain 2.4 yrs. of life.2. QUIT smoking - men who smoke a pack a day. Lose an average of 13 years of life, while women lose 14 years.
• 3. EAT FRUITS & VEGETABLES.- eat fruits & veggies can lengthen your life by 2-4 years.• 4. REMEMBER THE FIBER.- for every 10 gms. Of fiber you can consume per day, your risk of heart attack goes down by 14% & risk of death from heart disease drops by 27%.
5. EAT NUTS - eating one-quarter cup of nuts 5x a week can add 2.5 years to your life.6. ONLY the “GOOD” FATS please - get 20% of total daily calories from healthful fats, limit saturated fat, to 10% or less.7. LOSE WEIGHT. - maintaining IBW for height & age can lengthen your life by 11 years.
