    Abortion Clinics

    Abortion is a very touchy subject not only in Singapore but all over the world. The battle between pro-choice and pro-life has been raging on for quite some time now. But whether it is considered illegal and murderous or a way to control population and health of the woman is still debatable. Until there is a clear and definitive legislate on this, abortion centers will still be operating and likewise will still be targets of pro-choice community. Abortion clinics in Singapore and all over the country still battle against vandalism, ridicule and of course threats on a daily basis.

    But if you do choose to get this procedure and terminate your pregnancy, you should know how to choose the right facility. This is imperative in that not all abortion clinics in Singapore and other parts of the country are reliable and credible. Here are some tips and suggestions so that you get the best care when you opt for an abortion.

    Ask for legal documents to operate such a clinic. It is important that they are licensed and that they have the necessary papers. This will ensure your safety and your legal accountabilities. Let’s face it getting an abortion is not a popular course of action. But if you choose to get one, it would be best to get it from someone who is medically qualified.

    Visit several clinics and compare them. Of course cost is a crucial comparison but compare other points as well. First, check out their facilities. Is it clean and organized? Is the clinic complete with all the necessary equipment? Do they have the right number of staff? You should also know if their employees have the right credentials. Most importantly, are they equipped to handle emergencies should anything bad happens to you during the procedure.

    Talk to different people especially those who have gotten such a procedure. Doctors, health care professionals and counselors are all great sources of information. The right information can help you decide where to get an abortion (or even talk you out of having one). It is important that you know what will happen prior, during and after the abortion so you can prepare you self mentally and physically.

    Singapore abortion clinics and everywhere in the world have the obligation to keep you safe. But it’s up to you to decide whether you’ll get an abortion or not.

    Ayurvedic Living

    The basic philosophy of Ayurveda is that an imbalance of your doshas will cause illness. Therefore Ayurvedic healing, as well as Ayurvedic living require a complete, integrated balanced approach.

    Imbalance of the three doshas is believed to result in the blockage of the prana or life force. Therefore the goal in Ayurvedic healing is to cleanse the body of waste materials that build up because of this blockage.

    The process of cleansing is known as Panchakarma. It can include massage, medical oils administered through the nasal passages, enemas, laxatives or purgatives, and blood purification.

    The goal in Ayurvedic living is to restore and maintain balance in each individual’s three doshas. This balance is unique to each individual, but the same treatments can be applied for everyone to achieve their natural balance.

    These treatments include: herbs, vitamins, metals, minerals, meditation, aromatherapy, yoga, stretching exercises, breathing exercises, changes in diet, and certain plant based spices and oils. Perhaps the most prominent of the herbal treatments is ashwagandha, which is so important in Ayurvedic medicine that it will be discussed separately.

    Ayurvedic healing has not been well known in the west, as explained on Nirogi Tan, but that appears to be changing. In the last decade it has been increasing in popularity due partly to the influence of Deepak Chopra, M.D., a widely known Indian physician and philosopher who uses Ayurveda in combination with western medicine.

    Today, some spas will offer Ayurvedic herbs, medicines and treatments, and there is growing interest in seeking out trained Ayurvedic practitioners.
