If this is your first time in this site, welcome. It has been my dream that my province, Marinduque, Philippines becomes a world tourist destination not only during Easter Week but also whole year round. You can help me achieve my dream by telling your friends about this site. The photo above is your own private beach at The Chateau Du Mer Beach Resort. The sand is not as white as Boracay, but it is only a few steps from your front yard and away from the mayhem and crowds of Boracay. Please do not forget to read the latest national, international, and technology news in this site . I have posted some of my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes on this site also. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on infringement of your copyrights. Cheers!

Constipation- One of the Side Effects of Carbo-Levo Dopa for the Treatment of Parkinson Disease
My wife had been diagnosed with Parkinson Disease in 2013. One of the several medications, she is taking to control her movements disorder is Carbo-Levo Dopa ( Sinemet). The drug is effective in controlling tremours but one of the side effects of the drug is constipation. Her neurologist gave her a recipe that contains bran (high fiber) and prune juice, but Macrine hates it. Currently she is also taking Ducolax-a stool softener. I also encouraged her to consume fruits and vegetables with high fiber content. The fruits, vegetables and grains that she like are: apples, seedless grapes, bananas, mangoes, kiwi, avocado, papayas, broccoli, spinach and cucumbers. The fruits and food she hates are dried prunes, pickled sugar beets, cabbage and dark bread.
