Maybe you mean akong Kinabuhi which means my life.

They both mean heart burn the way you have them.

Kristine is experiencing kabuhi right now. Number one is that there is no direct translation to english. It is a a feeling in the epigastric region of the abdomen. It is a rapid palpatation that causes dizziness and cold sweats, among other symptoms. The remedy is to apply pressure at the point of origin. There are many other treatments from different regions of the Philippines but historically they bind the abdomen, hence applying pressure.

As was discussed in another thread, pasmo has many symptoms. Kabuhi is just one of them. There are many types of pasmo though.

Gikabuhi is an adverb that describes the feeling of kabuhi.

Thats all she has the energy to expound upon since she has been in class all day!

One thing you better get used to is that literal translations are many times impossible.

Next we will will discuss bughat. A more intense version of pasmo which results from over exertion and not eating properly, especially post partum.

bob you got backup on this ... my wife was saying the same thing as she was running out the door to work .. including the no direct translation part ...

With a cheery smile and a wave of his hand he wandered off to an unknown land.

Not all those who wander are lost.

10/4 on the exact translations ....... it is really funny to watch Julie try and explain something to me in English from a Tagalog word that has no meaning but rather a feeling ..... she will try and try and finally say "you know what I mean" .............. :P :D ...... at that point I know there is no direct translation ...... and no real good way to explain it ....... but she will eventually find an explanation ...... sometimes hours later after she has thought about it for a while .......

The same in any language ....... OMG .... I would hate to try and learn English after speaking another for so long ..... :) :lol: :lol:

yes thats right, there is no direct translation nor medical term. even filipino doctors doesnt believe it nor any medical treatment can be done. however local old folks just apply pressure on the gastric area and wrap the waist with a piece of cloth making it like a belt. persons who had this should avoid or change electric fan position away from them.
