Most of the time, as we get carried away with the daily grind of life, we tend to forget that, at anytime, we can get sick, or get involved in some mishap or accident. Even if we do all we can to stay healthy: eat right, exercise more, get enough sleep, don’t drink or smoke, drink lots of vitamins, there is always that possibility that a simple mosquito bite could lead to dengue. Then, we realize that we are not invincible after all.

Early detection of a dreaded disease is actually what saves lives! If we find out early enough what illness we are afflicted with, we could easily determine the right cure. As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure”. A yearly annual examination keeps us updated with the status of our health. The most basic annual check up includes annual medical history, CBC, urine, fecal tests, x-ray. For females, the annual check up includes PAP Smear, for the early detection of cervical cancer. The more comprehensive (meaning: more complete and more expensive), the annual physical check up may include the treadmill test (for early detection of heart ailments), ECG (electro cardiogram), etc. A very good health care provider offers this kind of services.
