Tamang Alaga para sa inyong Pamilya (Part 1)

HEALTH IS WEALTH!

Bilang OFWs, alam na alam na natin ang halaga ng pag-aalaga sa ating kalusugan. Mahirap nang magkasakit lalo na’t mahalaga ang bawat oras sa ating mga trabaho. At kahit nasa malayong lugar tayo, siyempre, priority pa rin natin ang kalusugan ng ating mga mahal sa buhay dito sa Pilipinas.

At ang good news d’yan ay mas makakatipid ka na sa healthcare needs ng iyong pamilya dahil narito na ang BeamAndGo upang tulungan kang magpadala ng generic medicines na talaga namang mas mura kumpara sa branded counterparts nito.

GENERIC O BRANDED NA GAMOT?

Ano nga ba ang kaibahan ng generic na gamot sa branded na gamot? Bakit nga ba mas mura ang generic medicines? Mas marami nga ba itong side effects kaysa sa branded na mga gamot? Mas safe nga ba ang branded medicine kaysa sa generic counterpart nito?

Maraming katanungang bumabalot sa mga generic medicines, kaya naman katulong ang RiteMed (Powered by MedExpress), sasagutin ng BeamAndGo ang ilan sa mga katanungan tungkol sa generic medicines mula sa ating mga kapwa-OFWs:

patentedIsa sa malaking sanhi ng pagkakaiba ng presyo ng generic at branded na gamot ay ang pag-aaral at pagsusuri na ginagawa upang mabuo ang mga branded na gamot. Pino-protektahan ng patent ang sangkap, gawa, at disenyo ng mga branded na gamot, at pinapayagan lamang ang mga pagawaan na bumuo at magbenta ng generic na gamot kung nag-expire ang patent ng isang gamot. Ito rin ang dahilan kung bakit nauunang lumabas sa merkado ang mga branded na gamot.

Gluten-in-OTC-and-Prescription-Medicines.jpgBukod sa pangalan o brand, kinakailangang magkaiba ang hugis, kulay, inactive ingredients, at laki ng branded na gamot at ang generic counterpart nito. Walang pinagkaiba sa active ingredients at proseso sa paggawa ng mga ito. Katulad ng mga branded na gamot, ang production ng generic medicines ay alinsunod sa health standards mula sa FDA.

1Ang allergies o side effects mula sa gamot ay hindi naka-base sa brand ng gamot. Depende ito sa kalagayan ng kalusugan at allergic reactions sa mga piling kemikal, at maaaring iba-iba ito sa bawat tao. Branded o generic na gamot man ang nais na gamitin, mahalagang magpa-konsulta sa doktor upang malaman ang nararapat na gamot para sa iyong katawan. At kung branded naman ang i-recommend ng iyong doktor, maaari mo rin tanungin ang generic counterpart nito.

What’s up, Doc?

Smiles await you at Managed Care Medical

The good Dr. Apron and her team.

It’s been awhile since I went to see a doctor for a health check. Part of the reason was cause I consider myself healthy but a bigger reason is cause I am afraid to see a doctor. But when Managed Care Medical joined the BeamAndGo.com merchant network, I set aside my fears to pay them a visit and try them out … and to see what may be wrong with me.

For the check up, I chose the basic health screening package, which includes blood, urinalysis, fecalysis, physical, visual and dental. All for only Php 900. If you want the same package at the same price, you can get it at BeamAndGo.com by clicking here.

The good news is that everything in my body still works. And except for the usual wear-and-tear that comes with age, I am in good health.

The great news is that the staff is AWESOME! From the moment I walked in the door, I was greeted with a smile from everyone on the team. And throughout all the exams, they made me feel very comfortable.

At first, I was scared, but the team really put me at ease
