Staying healthy

All adults should avoid inactivity to promote good health mentally and physically.

For substantial health benefits, adults should participate in at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.

Aerobic activity should be performed in episodes of at least 10 minutes, and preferably, it should be spread throughout the week.

For additional and more extensive health benefits, adults should increase their aerobic physical activity to 300 minutes a week of moderate-intensity, or 150 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.

Additional health benefits are gained by engaging in physical activity beyond this amount.

Adults should also do muscle-strengthening activities that are moderate or high intensity and involve all major muscle groups on 2 or more days a week, as these activities provide additional health benefits.


Wearing Heels May Be Better Than Flats! This S'porean Podiatrist Explains Why

A lot can be said about a person just by looking at their feet (which sounds much weirder than it's supposed to). Truth can be stranger than fiction...

Lynn Toh, a podiatrist from Singapore revealed that your feet are the first to show signs of serious conditions like arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes.

People often overlook the field of podiatry. They are not just trained to fix calluses, ingrown toenails, or give simple advice on footwear!

In Lynn’s AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on DxD, she covered a long list of other questions about podiatry as well as many facts you didn't know about your feet.

$300 Spa Slimming Sessions Are A Complete Waste Of Time And Money. This S'porean Doctor Explains

Have you ever been to a spa for slimming consultation, only to be met with an annoyingly pushy salesperson (pushy enough to rival even the pushiest MLM sales agent) that insists you use a somewhat dubious-seeming service? If so, you wouldn’t be the only one. More and more disgruntled customers have emerged to challenge the aggressive hard-sell approach that so many slimming beauty centres tend to adopt.

Here are a few key points that Dr Chua addressed as to why it might not be a good idea to trust spas for slimming solutions.

Time and time again, whether you are a seasoned marathoner or the neophyte jogger, you've probably heard this: Running too much will hurt your knees.

As a physiotherapist who runs frequently, I'd be a millionaire if I was given a quarter everytime I was asked, "Physio, will running damage my knees?" or being told, "You're a physio, you should know that running will damage your knees!"

Me: So how does that affect your training?

Patient: I CAN’T RUN!

Thank you for asking this interesting question. Your medical ID is supposed to keep critical information, such as drug allergies and main medical diagnoses. I think "KLACID and AVELOX ALLERGY + your biodata + blood group" might be the only things that can fit.
