A Foodie Reminder for the Holidays – Doc Pao Bellosillo

Panahon na naman ng christmas salu-salo. Kabi-kabila an mga party na nakalinya para sa atin. Ako nga, nakakatatlong Christmas Party na ako – and everytime na pumupunta ako, nakakarami ako ng kain.

Tumataba na rin ako. Yung katawan ko, “Father Figure” na. Sakto lang din naman to dahil in a few months, lalabas na si Baby Atsyne.

Kaso lang, pag pinagpatuloy ko ang hindi pag watchout sa kinakain ko, baka hindi ko na abutan ang debut ni Atsyne. Buti andyan si Doc Pao para magpaalala kung ano ang proper diet upang maiwasan ang sickness nating mga millenials.

Eto ang maiksing interview sa kanya:

1.      With the advent of new sicknesses sprouting left and right, how do you feel your field of study can help in alleviating or avoiding these sicknesses?

Diseases are caused not by genetic predisposition alone but by the imbalance in health brought about by excess toxins and nutritional deficiencies that one has, given by their lifestyle and environmental factors.  Prevention and early detection of these imbalances without any invasive procedures can help build a cascade of well being starting with one person to a family to a community all the way to a country.  Usually when symptoms manifest the diseases have already taken a toll. Hence for chronic and degenerative diseases best practices of medical systems can be applied but for acute once conventional medicine can work well with integrative therapies that allow people to feel like people when they are treated.  We just got to preserve the humanity of each person from early detection through treatment proper and post treatment covering all aspects of life touching the areas of the a Body, Mind and Soul.  Going to the roots would help alleviate people from suffering. When symptoms manifest, disease would have already progressed by then. Why not prepare the bodies protection and defence mechanism to be resilient to internal and external threats.

In the Philippines the inevitable rise of deaths due to heart, stroke and cancer can very much be reduced by early detection and preventive management of care that looks at a person’s well being as a whole.

2.      What is the main thing that people can do to avoid getting sick in this day and age where everything that we eat has pesticide and is considered unhealthy?

Being healthy is a choice. First make that choice. Know your Food sources, types of Marco Nutrients, proper portioning and utilize technologies that purify or cleanse your food. Toxin bioaccummulate in our food sa best is to go for organic or partial. When organic food is not available technologies such as an ozonator may be used for detoxifying fish, beef, chicken, pork and vegetables. It may also be used to purify The water we drink and air we breathe.  Proper detox uses Smart portioning, Smart Sourcing, Smart supplements and Smart technologies.  To know more about this
you may seek advise at Health Is In Center.. We’d be glad to advise you on your detox needs from Food-Environment-Self.

3.      What are three things that people need to have in their life to live a life of quality?

Peace and harmony of Body, Mind and Spirit wherein Holistic and Integrative specialists like me Cam assist them with.  Only Whole Medical Systems and Integrative Medicine whose understanding the said three planes. Healing is not summarized into a pill but the smooth balance between the three principle factors of life, it is a way of life.

4.      What are the top foods they need to avoid to lessen the possibility of becoming toxic or sick?

Acid forming food such as:
Chips, fatty oily food usually seen in innards, French fries, usually the preserved meats, carbonated drinks, cakes and pastries.  The key here is moderation in portioning and frequency.  Life is fair, we functional supplements and technologies can help reduce toxicity.

Way back then I enjoyed sisig, Crispy pata or even chicharon bulaklak and having seen their impacts on hardening and clogging of arteries, I opted to abstain but was able to appreciate them when I took them in moderation w specific supplements and technologies plus fitness Programs that allow me to detox.   It is no joke for blood vessels especially of the heart and brain to be clogged or stiff to trigger a heart attack or stroke.  Another key in moderation is know your limits.  We have natural ways and technological ways to determine stiffness and clogging of arteries.  This way we can avoid a trip to the emergency room or intensive care unit.

5.      What can you advise as an expert in your field that people do to be healthier, more positive, and have a life that can reach to their 80s?

Healing begins w a decision, get organized know your excess toxins and nutritional deficiencies through the help of preventative technological assessements. From there lets walk through a program that allows you to live well and long encompassing cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, muskoskeletal, respiratory and many more organ system needs by applying the best practices  that naturopathic, allopathic, homeopathic, ayurvedic and chinese medical systems has to offer  to ensure stability and growth from cellular to system needs.  Totality is the way to go. Integrative medicine would bring together another means to make you experience the best pairing of what east and west has to offer.  If what we do helps one lengthen or strengthen telomeres, battle or neutralize freeradicals, prevent proliferation of pathogens that reflect positive ions, improve cell function and then help create stem cells or protect the DNA of your cells, then 80 would be the new average life expectancy for all.  Onward to 100 years.

6.      What’s your wish for mankind?

Peace and harmony to the hearts and minds of all, afterall we are one humanity.
Celebrate Life, Love and Laugh.
For each to Live A Legacy.

Can Flavor Help You Find Love?


Sabi nila, the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Ganun din naman sa woman. Basta alam mo siya pakainin, alam mo paborito niyang food, alam mo yung ayaw niya, at alam mo rin ang putahe na pwede niya kainin any day of the week, swak na kayo.

Nahihirapan ka makahanap ng kapareha sa buhay? Try mo maghanap muna ng ka-FUBU.

Oo, FUBU. Hindi ito yung brand ng damit.

FUBU means FUd BUddy. Hanap ka ng kapareho mo ng ayos ng taste buds. Hanap ka ng kapareho mo ng cravings. Hanap ka nun kumakain ng balot, nage-enjoy sa kilawin, at hindi nandidiri sa Dinuguan.

Ang unang tanong kasi na mahirap sagutin sa first date ay “San tayo kakain?”

Look Who Conquered a 3-Feet LONG Kebab at BAGA Manila

BAGA Manila First Anniversary November 16, 2012 .

Nakakasawa din kasi kumain ng mga sosyal na pagkain lalo na kapag taga-Makati ka. Puro na lang fast food at mga restaurant na high end. Kadalasan, pizza at pasta na lang tapos may garlic bread sa gilid. Minsan naman, fried chicken mga pagkain na hindi naman talaga maka-Pinoy.

Kung naghahanap ka ng barbecue party na may kasamang musika sa gitna ng Makati kapag weekend, subukan mo magpunta ng A.Venue Open Parking Lot. Andun ang http://marionjensen.com/2006/07 Barbecuers And Grillers Association or irefully BAGA para maghain ng iba’t ibang klase ng inihaw na kung anu-ano.

Bukas ang BAGA Manila from 2pm every Friday hanggang Saturday. Bago kayo pumarty, mas ok na dito na kayo mag dinner.

O pwede din naman na after party, pag nagutom ka, diretso ka na sa BAGA Manila.

Eto ang mga tumatak sa akin:

May mga iba pang pagkain pero hindi ko na lubusang natikman. May lugaw, liston, mga kebab, pork barbecue, chicken barbecue, may hipon, MedChef for dessert, tsaka mga lutong bahay.

Syempre kanin. Maraming kanin.

The usual palamig, cupcakes, malalaking crabs, hipon, at hindi ko na maalala lahat. Click na lang ninyo ITO para sa pictures.

Ang pinaka-naging experience ko e yung kumain kami ng 3-Feet Long na Kebab. Nagkaroon kasi ng contest at sumali kami ng fashion blogger na sina Ann Ville Purificacion at Resly George Amador. Malalakas din sila kumain kaya nanalo kami. Eto ang aming WINNING POSE:

Kebab Destroyers

Maraming salamat sa organizers ng BAGA Manila! Babalik kami!

Eto nga pala ang video ng event care of GMA-7:
