Doctor, could you please tell us about what you do and your specialty?

 

 

I use Food as Medicine, in different forms of fruits and vegetables juices, water etc. I use protocols for Diabetes Reversal, Cholesterol Treatment, Fertility Treatment, Cancer Management, and all Chronic Diseases.

Most Chronic Diseases now have no answer or it is a life long struggle of medication with many side effects. With what I do, it’s Drugless, Chemical Free and it works.

 

 

What makes you endorse Aquafresh Sri Lanka?

 

I choose products which are natural and chemical free, which is why I use Aquafresh.

Aquafresh is a well-known, Sri Lankan based Bottled Drinking Water Brand and it’s straight from the hands of mother nature. The water is extracted from the Aquifer in Labugamkanda rainforest, located 200ft beneath the bedrock. The purity is such that it can be consumed straight from the aquifer. 

However, Aquafresh purifies this water though the biological purification process, designed by Professor Harin Corea of University of Peradeniya. With four steps, Aquafresh has mimicked the nature’s way of purifying water. The Steps are: Aeration, Slow sand filtration, Micron Filtration and UV Ray Treatment. This process does not involve any chlorine or other chemicals.

Changing Perception of Women in the Workplace 0 541

By: Cameron Blake

Source: The Changing Role of Women in Business

 

A worldwide change in gender perception puts more and more expectations on women; hence inter alia the role of women in business undergoes continuous progress. It is currently a popular issue touched on by society and aims to change the perspective of professionally successful women. This topic is extremely interesting considering the fact that more and more women have been promoted to executive roles in the business sector.

The status of women, especially in European countries, in the United States, and in some countries in Asia has improved considerably in the last 50 years. Women nowadays possess unlimited access to education and training that continuously develops, providing many women with the necessary qualifications to aspire to jobs in senior management. No longer are women associated with low expectations and qualifications, in terms of both education and the workforce positions.

There is no doubt that significant progress has been achieved in strengthening gender equality in the labor market over recent decades. Women have been moving steadily into occupations, professions and managerial jobs previously reserved only for men.

What is more, women now seek and obtain the highest leadership roles in education, government and business.

Women’s advancement in management career is influenced by personality factors and, organizational factors. These are also various societal and institutional factors that contribute to encourage employees to hire women instead of men. It is important to keep in mind that there are important institutional differences between countries, notably regarding their educational and academic systems.

Strawberries in Sri Lanka-BiZnomics-Business

The Agricultural Research Institute has described strawberries as a fruit that is difficult to grow, as it needs to be continually monitored for protection from diseases.

Although the main planting season for strawberries begins in September, the nursery preparation process begins well ahead with the planting of mother stock. Tended with the utmost care, a few weeks after planting these mother plants start shooting runners, which are then cut and potted in preparation for bed planting.

 

 

Greenhouse construction includes the careful laying of gradients for proper drainage, much for proper weed/pest cover and dipper systems for fertigation – a few of the myriad aspects covered meticulously in this phase. Land and bed preparation, as we call the preparation of the lay of the soil and land, is an arduous task requiring much precision and once the beds and irrigation systems are ready, planting begins in earnest. Each potted plant is carefully removed and planted in neatly aligned beds, angled just right to absorb as many nutrients as are required for the months of work ahead.

From this point on, care is a mix of diligent tending of the plant, weeding and providing the optimum support, in the form of bees for pollination, plant analyses for ensuring the maximum possible nutrients are absorbed, and warding off of pests.

 

strawberry-BiZnomics-Business-4Harvesting of strawberries starts two months after planting, when fruit is at its biggest, tastiest and juiciest. The first fruit from each plant is always the biggest and often the most off-shaped, although extremely tasty! From this point on, harvesting takes place daily, although quantities and sizes vary based on the plant life-cycle and the stage of planting in the staggered planting system.
