The Filipino society in general have progressed through the years, rapid change in development and new acquired knowledge has led to leaps and bounds in technology and awareness in health.
The topic, I think is well known. The problems that it tries to address is ancient. Dreaded diseases are still widespread and yet even with the advancement of medical science, a lot still have no definite cures.
People resort on products that are natural with astounding claims of cures, defeating what western medicine has failed to achieve. Cancer, dementia, infertility, etc, the list just goes on and on.
As a physician, I was trained to practice evidenced based medicine, treatments proven by research and studies to have medical benefits. Evidenced based means trials, and trials means limitation of bias and reproduction of results proven by statistics.
Green Barley is a natural food, it belongs to a family of grass cultivated for its grain as a major source of carbohydrates translated to bread.
Barley is not well known in this part of the world, but rice is. It is true that it contains several vitamins and minerals and also some anti oxidants labeled as phytochemicals. Well, its contents are not unique, you maybe surprised to know that papaya, unpolished rice, camote tops etc. also have those nutrients mentioned, but they are not as popular as green barley, maybe because of the curative claims that made it famous.
We do not have any clear cut evidence from trials that it is really what it claims to be, the Government recognized it and therefore labeled it as a food supplement just like your favorite powdered milk.
My recommendation, I have no objections for its consumption especially if so requested by my patients. I recommend taking only a bottle once a week, mostly due to its price. I think you can also get the same nutrients and benefits just by consuming talbos ang kamote, malunggay and other vegetables.
The best recommendations for good health are the basics.
1) balanced diet of iskargu- isda, karne, and gulay
2) regular exercise
3) abstinence from smoking and alcohol

To be a physician means hard work and quite a number of years in school. A very boring career path since most of your friends are doing great in their professions.
College degree is just a start for a future physician, medical proper is still five long years in the making. By the time you reach your post graduate internship, your high school buddy probably just got promoted to a junior managerial staff in company somewhere in Makati, and here you are struggling to finish another year of alternating 24 hour shifting schedules.....
And now, your ready for the medical board examination, and with God's grace, you PASSED.
Then what? Well, you can start a small clinic as a private general practitioner or be a freelance ER moonlighter. Just the same, both career paths will give some generous income but nevertheless stagnant....
To be a physician means to maximize your learning potential, skills and of course income.. Your parents toiled day and night for your tuition and not to mention your books, uniform and most importantly... your BAON!!!
Your parents without any doubt are proud of what you have achieved, but they expect more from you. As a physician, your family will be your first patients and because of that, you want to give them your BEST CARE....
Best Care at this point in time is limited... Limited because you still lack further knowledge and training. Sure, a simple cough, fever, minor trauma etc... will just be snap for you, but then again, your ageing parents will certainly have other conditions requiring more attention and treatment than you can provide as a general physician.
Going to residency training will give you that edge, the knowledge and skills to function efficiently as a physician. You can help your family more, be a consultant to your colleagues in the medical profession and to your future patients...
Emergency Medicine is one of the youngest specialty in the Philippines. It involves a much deeper understanding of all diseases, common or complicated and is probably the most important critical initial step in the management of life threatening conditions that needs hospitalization. An Emergency Physician is a specialist in all age groups that requires immediate treatment for severe life threatening diseases, but they can also act as primary care physicians and direct patients to other specialties that requires no immediate intervention.
Pasig City General Hospital's Acute and Emergency Department is just one of a few Training Institutions that offers a residency training program in Emergency Medicine. It was given a full accreditation status by the Philippine College of Emergency Medicine.
