Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day. What About Sugar-Free Coffee?

Breathe Easy With Omron CompAir Nebulizer

More than six years ago, when my eldest was born, we were told by our pedia that he has asthma and that he needs constant nebulization to prevent attacks. He was born via CSection and I will not dread the moment going back and forth to the pedia’s clinic just to be able to get the dose of nebulization with my post partum wound. Imagine the hassle going back and forth and sharing the nebulizer with other sick kids? Don’t get me wrong though, I know they do clean it, but being a medical professional myself, I do not like the idea of cross contamination.

So we decided to get our own nebulizer which is Omron. It was the most sought after and trusted compact nebulizer seven years back. I considered it already handy since those that we used when we were kids was twice as big as a lunch bag, heavier and noisy.


Last Wednesday, I was invited by Omron Health care together with other mommy bloggers and be informed about asthma. The speaker was Dr. Anjanette O. Reyes – De Leon, a pediatrician who imparted her knowledge about asthma, it’s signs and symptoms, underlying causes, and how we are going to prevent and treat it at home.



To further elaborate the need of having a nebulizer at home, please see my blogpost here. But right now, what I will be babbling here is how innovation is really a thing because not only we can own our own nebulizer but, it can be handy and carry it anywhere in our bag! Yes, the newest model of Omron is smaller which you can carry inside your bag. They have developed it to be more effective when delivering medicines through a fine mist via inhalation. It has minimal noise but a lot handier now.

Inhalation for seven years old and below are supposed to be delivered via inhalation through a face mask and over seven years old through T piece in order for the medicines to effectively reach the airways.


What is the proper care of the nebulizer?

After every use, soak the medicine compartment in container with warm water to loosen up the residue inside. This is to prevent further accumulation and clogging of the tubings. Wash it with soap and water and air dry.

The small filter which can be found at the back of the unit must be replaced when it has already discoloration.

Important reminder: Do not poke the unit with any sharp object should it become faulty. Please bring it to the service center immediately or warranty will be voided.

How much is the unit?
