I had dengue! It is no joke.
At first I thought since I am in my 30s and a body builder that I wouldn't be effected do to what I perceived as superior health.......all I can say about that is
BS!

I am not looking to getting the other forms of it thank you.


Scary stuff... apparently the first time you get it its not to bad....but the second time can be fatal. Not to scare you


Just what an Austrian expat told me who recovered from Dengue. Apparently the herb "tawa- tawa" is good to take when you have Dengue. Dont ask me what tawa-tawa is in english i have no idea lol

See, no, here's the problem with that The Great Day...you can't promote something that is not manufactured by the pharamcuetical industry...please, you are upsetting the balance of killing all poor people by offering them an actual cure...please stop, before I am forced to call Bayern.

Lol yes i know....

i have been in docters waiting room when drug pushers come in and get to go straight passed all the poor and sick to see the doctor to promote the latest cocktail. I get so


So my wife watched the vid to translate and the key thing i picked up on is that the herb has something that mimics blood platelets/ adds platelets or something, don't quote me...things tend to get lost in translation.

But its true of the old school people here, they know their herbs and natural supplements.

I've never had dengue. The usual advice even from the media here is to combat it with paracetamol at the first onset. Aspirin is a no no since it's useless. A technique I've developed has worked for me well. Whenever I feel like having a fever I just eat a big meal, take a paracetamol or two, then lie down and cover myself with heavy sheets and sweat it out. You really need to induce a lot of sweating and do avoid dozing off. The fever breaks before it even starts. Works for me everytime.

You know we are all human beings and it gets me how so few can control so many just like the movie ANTZ no one on this planet should have to live in poverty eat food unfit/disgusting it's a disgrace. When are people going to wake up and stand together and get rid of the scum running things all bad ...we need to start rebuilding our Countries the way we want them to be it's our rights.

Stop the wars stop working to make them rich start working together and making life the way YOU want it to be FREE and PEACEFUL. Let's work as a Planet and cure diseases/viruses ourselves....we can do it if we work together.

Yes, if we work together, but we will never work together.
The golden age is dead, we are all victims now.

I am from the Philippines, although I agree with you that they are better off being in the province than in the city, you have no idea of the circumstances of the many people that were there.

This is from my own experience. I once applied for a job back in Manila, the job was to sell some products by going from one house to another. There was no salary, just commission. The owner of the business have a huge building to house the employees, it was like a prison. In the morning they all have to get up, escorted to a van, and brought to a nearby province to sell from one house to another. In the afternoon, they all have to meet in one area, and the van brings them back to the house (prison). Because the employer provides them shelter, and food (congee = lugaw), they no longer get commission.

Now this is the saddest part. 99.99% of these people were taken from the province by a recruiter, who promised them a very good job in Manila that pays a lot of money. Because of the circumstances of these people, somebody is sick in the family or they want to send their siblings to school, etc. They were lured to go to Manila with the recruiter. When they get there, they are thrown in that housing facility, were they are treated like prisoners and slaves. There are many of them who wants to go back to their province but they have no money to be able to pay for ship or airplane ticket. They cannot even get out of there to try to find another job as they are locked inside and only let out to be thrown in another province to sell the products and then taken back again in the afternoon.

Aside from that, every morning they were forced to undergo a routine of exercises which I automatically recognized as a form of brainwashing. Most of them were so brainwashed they actually believe that they will one day get lucky and be able to sell up to the quota and they will become a "supervisor" to where they will finally get more commission. Do you know what was the quota? They need to sell 100 pieces of lighter/watches in one day each costing 150 pesos. Those lighter/watches can be bought in divisoria or "tsangge" for only 20 pesos. Nobody will buy it for that price unless they really just feel sorry for the person that sells it. You know how much I sold on my first day? NONE. So these people makes up sad stories just so people will buy their product. But the saddest part is that they don't have to make up sad stories, their true stories are already sad.

The only people that are able to get out of there are the ones that risked sleeping on the streets and are not so much affected by the brainwashing. If you are female, would you risk sleeping in the streets of Manila? Maybe yes, maybe not, but most will not.

I was one of the lucky ones as I grew up in the sub-urb of Manila and can easily go back to my family. I am now living in the US but I still have not forgotten how hard it was back there in the Philippines. If you do not know this, you are lucky but maybe you should get out of that province and visit Manila so you will understand their circumstances. Although it is true that living in the province you will not go hungry as you can plant vegetables, but food is not the only thing we need to survive.

Peace.

And I take it you didn't report it to the authorities or tip our sensationalist media? They'd have been all over this one.

I lived in the Philippines for eight months. I saw so many heartbreaking sights like little girls (no older then eight, nine) beg for money or little boys begging for money at busy intersections. I gave what I could, but being there for so long put a strain on my funds as well.

P.S.
Filipino's are some of the hardest working and nicest people I've met. No one deserves to eat "Pagpag". Kinda makes you think about all that food Wal-Mart and the other chains toss out.

Never give money to beggars. Many of them are used by syndicates, gangs or their own families who squander the money on beer and karaoke bars, etc. Give them food or clothing, but never, ever money. Some kids don't even use the money to buy food. They buy "rugby" and sniff that chemical to get high.

That reminds me of an article I read about the poor black communities in the south during the great depression. I'm sure I don't have to explain how blacks were viewed and treated back then. This lady that was quoted in the article said that the poor blacks were not even aware that the country was in a great depression for 2 years!

Its interesting that you reference this article because I have a similar story. Years ago, when I was a child,I asked my grandmother what life was like during the Great Depression and she told me that it didn't really affect her because they were already poor. She said most of the people in her community were unaffected due to the fact that they were all poor farmers. She said that she was barely aware that there was a depression going on.
