A woman’s body’s fertile signs

She may not be sensitive enough to notice it, but a woman’s body will give a woman signs that she is fertile and can easily get pregnant. So what signs are we looking for when it comes to knowing our body’s fertile signs?

1. Basal body temperature
A woman’s body temperature can be tracked using a basal body thermometer. A woman may chart her fertility to tell the changes of her body every day before you even get out of bed. When a woman is fertile, she will be able to see a spike in her temperature in the chart. This means she’s possibly fertile and going to ovulate soon.

2. Cervical mucus
The so-called egg white cervical mucus is the most fertile of all CM types because it allows the sperm to swim easily into the cervix. Its consistency is similar to raw egg whites and it can stretch an inch or two without breaking in the middle. This is another sign that you are fertile.

3. Increased sex drive
Many women notice an increase in their sex drive when they are fertile. It is due to the hormonal changes happening inside a woman’s body.

Whether you are trying to get pregnant or not, knowing when you’re fertile greatly helps. Through this, you will know when to use contraceptives if you’re family planning or baby dance if you’re trying to get pregnant.

THE BEST IN INTERNATIONAL ISLAMIC EDUCATION

- Greenview Islamic School’s one-of-a-kind approach to education receives shining recognition -
Greenview Islamic School recently received its first The BrandLaureate award when it was named the Best in International Islamic Education at The BrandLaureate Corporate SME Awards 2016. The award was accepted by Muhammad Azman bin Tan Sri Hamzah, School Director of Greenview Islamic School, and was a milestone in the journey of the school since it was founded in 2010.


Over the years, Greenview Islamic School has become a reputable brand name in Malaysia’s International Islamic education sector. With growing competition, the school continues to differentiate itself from its competitors through placing equal emphasis on academic education, character development, and spiritual strengthening.


“From our humble beginnings, we have channelled our resources towards creating thinking and caring global citizens, and our success in accomplishing that, is the reason for this recognition. This award is dedicated to the parents, and students who work tirelessly towards making their dreams come true and we are ever grateful to them for choosing us as their gateway to the future,” said F. S. A. Majeed, Principal of Greenview Islamic School.


The school’s growth from just four students and six teachers to reaching almost 500 students in just over five years, with limited promotional and marketing efforts, was possible thanks to its curriculum that focuses on enhancing a student’s ability to critically think, communicate effectively, be creative, and build an excellent character. This approach led to the formation of an extensive network of satisfied parents who endorse the efficacy of the school’s approach and recommend it to others.


F. S. A. Majeed added, “Via learning methods such as positive reinforcement learning, we aim to produce highly qualified practicing Muslims who will make positive contributions to Malaysia’s progress as well as becoming active members of the global community.”


Greenview Islamic School offers a wide variety of courses for students from Year 1 to Year 11, with both curricular and extra-curricular activities that contribute to a student’s holistic development. Using positive reinforcement learning, students are inspired to develop self-discipline, and take pride in their own school work, studies, and personal growth.


Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs form a crucial facet of the school’s business as giving back to society is a vehemently held value. Its initiatives include, awarding financial discounts for potential filled students who have financial difficulties, and providing special care and support to students with special needs.


Those looking to find out more about Greenview Islamic School can visit their branches at either Bukit Jelutong or Bangi and speak to a representative from 8:30am to 12:30pm from Mondays to Thursdays and 8:30am to 12:00pm on Fridays.

World Kidney Day 2017 Event in Putrajaya for ‘Healthy Lifestyle, Healthy Kidneys’


Malaysian Society of Nephrology invites the public to join the fun cycling and walk event.

The World Kidney Day 2017 (WKD17) is an annual event and this year’s focus is on healthy lifestyle to prevent obesity as obesity can lead to chronic kidney disease. Obesity remains the number one preventable risk factor for chronic kidney disease because obesity largely mediates diabetes and hypertension, the 2 most common etiologies for end-stage kidney disease1. Overweight and obese people are also more prone to develop albuminuria and, for at least some types of kidney disease, a greater amount of albuminuria and more rapid progression of renal failure. Apart from that, obesity also leads to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, arthritis and other serious health problems2.


According to WKD17 organising chair, Dr Lily Mushahar, senior consultant nephrologist, Hospital Tuanku Jaafar, one of the more effective ways of making Malaysians slim down to a healthier weight is through proper education, exposure and awareness. Dr Lily said that eating has become a part of our local culture. Our local food, especially those with high calorie content is one of the contributing factors to the high prevalence of obesity amongst Malaysians.


“We are a multicultural nation with a wide selection of delicious delicacies. However, most of these foods are usually made up of glutinous rice, coconut milk with a high content of sugar. What we can do is to educate everyone on this epidemic and create awareness for a better, healthier lifestyle through this national level World Kidney Day 2017 on the 18th of March, with the Cycling Convoy flagging off from Hospital Serdang to Taman Botani, Fun Run, Zumba and a lot more activities that promote and encourage healthy lifestyle. This year’s WKD17 celebration is special as it started off with a group of 30 cyclists pedalled 633KM from Kangar to Putrajaya over 6 days – all in a bid to raise awareness regarding the importance of healthy lifestyle, exercise to combat obesity and kidney diseases! The journey involves 16 pit stops where the 30 cyclists will spread health messages and collect signatures on a banner, which will be officially given to the Deputy Health Minister on the 18th of March at Putrajaya during the official launce of WKD17 celebration. ” said Dr Lily.


Major private companies such as Lucenxia, Baxter, Fresenius, Sanofi, Kyowa Kirin, Roche and AJ Pharma are also helping to promote and sponsor the event.


“This program is very interesting because not only will there be fun and healthy activities that everyone can participate, but there will also be a talk on kidney health awareness and how to take care of them. Being obese is very closely linked to chronic kidney diseases which can be prevented if more people are aware of their unhealthy eating habits and their sedentary urban lifestyle that lacks exercise,” added Dr Lily.


There will be free health screening including measurement of body mass index, blood glucose level and blood pressure measurement. There will also be various booths promoting health, outdoor activity equipment and a blood donation campaign at Taman Botani Putrajaya this March 18, 2017.

According to the findings by World Health Organization, about 600 million of the world population were overweight and about 41 million of children under the age of 5 years are either overweight or obese3.


Revealed recently by Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam, obese Malaysians make up 17.7 percent while the ones that are overweight make up about 30 percent, bringing the percentage to 47.7 percent in total. Statistically, Malaysia is the most obese country in Asia and the officials blame it on the high calorie diet and sedentary urban lifestyle4. The health minister has also warned that the country is in the midst of obesity epidemic.

Nature’s Heart Range of Snacks from Guardian

Quality Roasted Nuts & Dried Cranberries for Guilt-free Anytime, Anywhere Snacking

 Guardian, the largest pharmacy, health and beauty retail chain in Malaysia, is inviting Malaysians to switch to healthier, guilt-free, anytime, anywhere snacking with the introduction of its Nature’s Heart range of roasted nuts and dried cranberries. Nature’s Heart is Guardian’s first ever foray into the snack food category.

Building A Healthier Snack 
 We are all guilty of snacking on less than healthy snacks that may be fried, highly salted and high in bad cholesterol, or that use preservatives or colouring. What if there was a better snack?

Healthy snacks provide energy in the middle of the day or during exercise while decreasing hunger and reducing overeating at mealtime1.

Nature’s Heart, A Heart Friendly Choice
Enter Nature’s Heart, an ideal heart-friendly snack as it is roasted or dried, never fried and is a cholesterol-free food. Containing dietary fibre, it is free from both added preservatives and colouring for peace of mind.

The range includes a fine selection of quality Roasted Almonds (Salted) and Dried Cranberries from the United States, Roasted Cashew Nuts (Salted) from India, Roasted Macadamia Nuts (Salted) from Australia and Roasted Mixed Nuts, that will appeal to everyone. More nut and fruit options will be added to the selection soon.



The extensive range of nuts and dried cranberries of Nature’s Heart is certified ‘Halal’ by JAKIM.

Designed For Resealable Convenience, Freshness and Portion Control
Snacking should be convenient, on-the-go and should allow for portion control. The Nature’s Heart range come in 60 to 80g, sufficient for up to 2 servings. Packed in beautifully designed resealable zipper bags, a transparent heart-shaped window lets you see the freshness within and keep track of how much you have consumed. You can reseal the bag to better control portion, and to keep the contents fresh.

Go nuts for nuts!
Research studies show that people who eat a handful of nuts every day live longer than those who do not eat them at all over the 30-year follow-up period2. Go ahead and go nuts for a nutty goodness.


A Digital Presence For Nature’s Heart
Nature’s Heart is in sync with the needs of digitally savvy consumers who love to research their snacks, with a website full of fun facts and snacking suggestions at www.naturesheartfood.com.

Mrs Segolene Defline, Corporate Brand Director of Health & Beauty at The Dairy Farm Company Limited, said: “We all snack. The goal is to snack smart for a healthy, delicious yet satisfying pick-me-up. This is why Guardian developed the Nature’s Heart range of snacks, focusing on nuts and dried fruits that are fun and deliciously satisfying to munch on. We pick ‘em…so you’ll love ‘em with the highest quality. You can indulge without guilt and you can find out much more at the website.”

In conjunction with the introduction of Nature’s Heart, Guardian Malaysia will be engaging with Joanne Chan, Dietician to educate and encourage more consumers to adopt good ways of healthy eating.


Be A Nut – Fun Facts 

According to studies, consuming almonds increases vitamin E levels in plasma and red blood cells and lowers cholesterol levels3.
Cashew nuts are packed with vitamins E, K and B6, along with minerals like phosphorus, zinc, magnesium and iron, all of which are important for maintaining good bodily function4. Research also shows that nuts such as cashews can reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels5. Cashew nuts also contain arginine6.

Macadamia nuts are loaded with good fat. Based on studies, Macadamia nuts are a rich source of monounsaturated fatty acids7.

Dried cranberries are low in calories8. Studies suggest that cranberries may reduce the risk of high blood pressure9.
