05 August 2012
 Dr. Asmaa Al-Saadoun, a consultant physician of obstetrics and gynecology, has underscored the importance of food balance and exercise for the good arrangement of women's menstrual cycle, during her interview at the MOH Media Information and Health Awareness Center, held last Saturday, 4/8/2012, within the framework of “Your Health in Ramadan” program.
Dr. Asmaa received callers' questions and inquiries, most of which revolved around the irregular menstrual cycle and the pain accompanying it. She also placed particular emphasis on the importance of the folic acid for pregnant women.
For her part, Dr. Amal Kenana, a clinical nutritionist, advised those suffering from chronic constipation not to cleanse the colon more than once, and to depend, instead, on healthy food consisting of fiber, fruit, and vegetables, as well as drinking much water, changing the lifestyle, and keeping having a daily walk.
While interviewed by the MOH Media Information and Health Awareness Center, on Sunday, 5/8/2012, at “Your Health in Ramadan” program, Dr. Kenana shed light on the importance of the good arrangement of meals in Ramadan, and abstaining from the unhealthy habits usually associated to Iftar.
It is worth noting that the Ministry of Health (MOH) has recently launched a comprehensive health-awareness campaign called: “Your Health in Ramadan”, under the theme: “Make Ramadan Healthy and Balanced”. Within the framework of this campaign, numerous health-awareness programs will be presented and aired on radio and TV channels, and inside health facilities, aside from the online campaign.
Every day in Ramadan, the Center will be interviewing doctors specialized in various medical specialties, to receive people's questions and inquiries through the toll-free number: 8002494444, and social networks (Twitter) from 1 to 3 pm. It is basically intended to highlight the importance of a well-arranged dosing system, and provide medical tips and consultations during the holy month.
Tomorrow, Monday, 6/8/2012, the Center is interviewing Dr. Sattam Al-Anzi, a consultant physician of emergency.
