My Land, My Courage, My Blood…..BORNEO (SABAH)

Sabah, popularly know as “The Land Below The Wind” is located in the North Borneo (Borneo Island) as part of Malaysia (declared independence on 16th September 1963 through Malaysia ( 31 August 1957 as Independence Day ). Malaysia is going a big way to attract tourist. In many ways, Malaysia is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination with tourist arrival growing to reach 1.5 billion by 2020. In Sabah, tourist arrival have also grown significantly over the years, and I understand that the visitor’s figures have broken the million marks since 2004. The World Trade and Tourism Council had placed Malaysia third among 174 countries for growth in the tourism sector this year, and 148th of 174 nations over the next 10-year period !
Sabah is an internationally known nature tourism destination….The World Heritage ! Mount Kinabalu is the highest mountain reaching 4,101 metres above sea level and attracted so many tourists throughout the world as you can find different types of fauna and flora species; the largest flower in the world, the Rafflesia, Hot Springs, the climate or weather changes, food and beverages, affordable resorts, hotels, chalets or even bunks under the shaddy canopy trees or campings. Sabah is an enjoyable and affordable destination, whether it is for holiday and health tourism. Medical and healthcare charges are competitive. It is relatively unhurried and I would say it is an ideal place where healthcare and recuperating holiday packages can be customized and aggresively promoted overseas. Come to Malaysia, come to Sabah or you will miss something in your uncompleted journey…!!

    What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Migrains
    If you have two or three of the following symptoms, you are a migraine sufferer or a “migrainuer.”

    Pain on one side of your head
    Moderate to severe pain
    Throbbing” or “penetrating” pain
    The pain lasts anywhere from a couple of hours to days
    You see flashing lights or have other visual disturbances before the headache appears
    Lights and noise make you feel worse
    You feel nauseated during your headache and may vomit
    You feel dizzy
    Your sweat, even though it is not hot
    You feel chilled
    You have double vision
    You have difficulty keeping your thoughts straight
    Your speech is slurred
    If you are one of the roughly 9% of Malaysians who suffer from regular migraines, this book is for you. The author, Dr Alexander Mauskop, presents a patient-tested “triple therapy” programme that promises the relief so desperately sought after by migraineurs. Not only does the programme relieve the pain, it will also often prevent recurrences. One of the best things of this therapy is that it is all-natural and combines just three common ingredients, namely, magnesium, Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and the herb feverfew. Dr Mauskop, who is a leading migraine expert in the USA, has treated thousands of his patients successfully with this therapy.

    In this 260-paged book, the doctor tells what is involved in the triple therapy. Magnesium is a mineral that helps regulate blood flow and has proven to have a dramatic effect on migraine sufferers. Riboflavin, or vitamin B, nicely supplements the programme by providing added benefits. Feverfew as been hailed as a great headache remedy and is now coming into its own by relieving pain and preventing migraines. However, he cautions about the choice of brands of these supplements as some may not work as well as others. Consuming the correct dosage is also of utmost importance. Patients are told to expect to see benefits only one to two months after taking the magnesium and feverfew and at least three months after taking Riboflavin. In addition to taking these supplements, he also emphasizes the necessity of taking other remedial action to prevent the recurrence of the killer headaches. Migraine triggers can be almost anything, ranging from the common to the rare. Sometimes avoiding these triggers are all it takes to eliminate the headaches.

    Eating to avoid migraines: Simply eating cheese or any other common food could be setting off your migraine. Each person will have their own triggers. Therefore it is important that the migraineurs identify what are the trigger foods and stay away from them. The chapter on eating right tells you how to do just that. Eliminating environmental and other triggers Allergies, household humidity, dust, pets, pollution, toxins, weather, your workplace, your posture are all possible causes of migraine. A whole chapter is dedicated to providing the tips you need to distance yourself from these triggers. Taking the edge off: An essential element of the migraine relieve plan is to take the edge off your stress and negative feelings as they are a major trigger of migraine.
