PATRICIA Javier won the search for the representative of our country in the next Mrs. Universe competition to be held in August in South Africa and she’s dead serious in preparing for it as our official candidate.
“Wala pang Filipinang nanalo so far, so talagang pinaghahandaan ko ito ngayon pa lang,” she says. “Ka-careerin natin 'yan and this early, the gowns I’ll wear are already being prepared by Robert Barrios, a U.S.-based designer, and by Regine Tolentino. I’m so thankful to my husband kasi very supportive siya sa akin. Siya pa ang nagpu-push sa’kin, saying you should work out everyday in the gym to make sure you have a perfect body when you join the pageant.”
Her husband, Dr. Robert “Rob” Walcher, is in the perfect position to be her personal coach as he is a health mentor who has just written and released a book that will help anyone maintain his physical fitness, “Dr. Rob’s Guide to Better Health & Wellness”. We were invited to its book launch held at Dr. Rob’s Chiropractic Wellness Clinic at POS Bldg., Sct. Madrinan St., QC. In the book, he shares his insights on how you can live a happier and healthier life. It offers a wealth of helpful information on how you can maintain good health through watching what you eat, sleeping and exercising well, thinking positive and having chiropractic care.
“The book tells you how to instill and maintain discipline in yourself then be consistent about it,” says Dr. Rob. “It may take you some time, but be persistent. If you slide back into your unhealthy habits, don’t give up. Get back on track and try again until you succeed in keeping a healthy life style. Remember, prevention is better than cure. It’s so expensive to get sick these days.”
When he and Patricia left the U.S. to try living in Manila almost five years ago, he didn’t have an inkling that he would also have a career here as a chiropractor. “We’re thinking we’ll just try it out here for six months but I’ve learned to love it here,” he says. “When people learned I’m a chiropractor, they started coming to me. First, we do it to friends then more and more people came until I have to put up my own clinic two years ago. Now, we have another branch in San Lorenzo, Makati. Throughout those two years, people keep on asking me to maintain good health and prevent disease, so I thought of coming up with this book that answers all those questions.”
Many celebrities have consulted him, including Derek Ramsay, Camille Prats, Gladys Reyes, Claudine Barretto, Ara Mina and they all speak highly of their experiences with Dr. Rob. The book is now available for only P300 and you can visit their website at DocRobChiro.com or inquire from their clinics at 444-8172 and 911-0881.
