“The Lord says, ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.’” Psalm 32:8

For almost two years now, our world shifted towards digital means. This shift created opportunities and advantages to people but also employed disadvantages. Let us take a look at the two major impacts of online means in the world of business and education.

Through the Online Business Scope

People brought their businesses online. This gave advantage to them as online businesses for wide dissemination of their business prospect to target audience and also created opportunities to the unemployed due to the crisis by finding remote jobs. At the same time, customers’ demands are satisfied.

But among the advantages of the shifting online wholly is also the gradual effects of its negativities. Some online businesses sell fake products that customers are not aware of. There is also the impression with selling goods online that did not meet customer expectations due to difference in the actual product than stated in the product description.

In this case, the VER1REV Enterprise is in a healthy and fruitful partnership with Mineral Resources International Inc., its supplier for the past eight years. The company sells authentic, 100 percent natural, food-grade MRI products such as IONIQUE® Mineral Drops, Elemental Selenium, Elemental Zinc and Copper, and Elete. These are also offered with the right prescription emphasized on the daily water intake based on weight and also through managing diseases by the medical director, Dr. Renato U. Paragas. Testimonies of patients are also present through their Facebook page and Youtube account, with medical explanations to various diseases on how IONIQUE® Mineral Drops, the elementals, and water help to manage each of these diseases. The people managing the Product Distribution Outlets of VER1REV Enterprise and their respective FB pages are also of knowledge and trained in the company by Dr. Paragas to educate them write the correct prescription in managing chronic diseases.

Monthly, Dr. Vernie Opalla, the President of VER1REV Enterprise, offers medical and spiritual seminars about the company’s concept: “Tubig at mga Mineral”. This provides learning for every person interested in marketing the said products and for access to those in dire need of physical healing. Most especially, it nurtures its employees and patients in the spiritual aspect that also welcomes future IONIQUE® Minerals users.

Through the Online Learning Scope

Another advantage of shifting to digital means is that education continued to be brought to students through online classes by institutions and through the support of professors. This mode of education provided an alternative bridge to students in reaching their goal and also professors continue to remain employed and given salary.

But, it poses disadvantages as well. The abrupt shift to online classes was felt with great stress and anxiety for students and teachers. Even now, students are still learning to cope with the bombardment of tasks online, while teachers are also adjusting to the synchronous and asynchronous mode of classes. It is furthermore affected by disruption of classes due to poor internet connection, natural calamities such as typhoons, urgent meetings, and personal matters. This affects their mental health gravely which is further hindered by the pandemic effects. Due to fluctuating strict protocols, some coping mechanism such as going for a run or walk are restricted. Both students and teachers are also glued 24/7 looking at their desktops or laptops to do or finish tasks. This creates a negative impact to both mental and physical health, which are important for a person to have wholesome health.

Based on Mental Health Foundation, physical health and mental health affect each other. Poor physical health leads to an elevated risk of mental health problems development, while poor mental health has a negative impact on physical health which leads to higher risks of some conditions.

To combat this, one way of doing improving physical and mental health is through exercise. “Research shows that doing exercise influences the release and uptake of feel-good chemicals called endorphins in the brain.” Alternate for walking or running outside, the exercises that can be done around and inside the house are aerobics, gardening, indoor jog or any gentle forms of exercise. This can elevate our mental alertness, energy, and create a positive mood.

Another way of boosting our mental health, one crucial factor, is through good nutrition. “A healthy balanced diet is one that includes healthy amounts of proteins, essential fats, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and water. The food we eat can influence the development, management and prevention of numerous mental health conditions including depression and Alzheimer's.” Dr. Paragas strictly recommends to follow the proper hydration formula which is 50 ml/kg/day. By supplementing our drinking water with IONIQUE® Concentrated Mineral Drops (IONIQUE® CMD), this restores the lost water and minerals in our cells. IONIQUE® CMD is a mineral supplement that contains at least 72 macro- and trace minerals that the internal systems need to work optimally at its cellular and molecular level.

The Bottomline

The pandemic led people to come up with a solution to economic and educational aspect and that is through innovative ways brought by the digital means. It implored both opportunities, advantages, and disadvantages to every aspect of life. Even battling the threat of the pandemic for almost two years, it still affects every person in their way of life, and also through their physical and mental health.

Because of this, VER1REV Enterprise is reminding us to always be kind and help one another for that is one of the true essences of life.
