MANILA, Philippines — Kris Aquino said she aims to achieve a "healthy work and life balance" following a health scare on Monday.

The TV host-actress revealed on her Instagram account on Tuesday that she was hospitalized at The Medical City in Pasig City Monday night after she experienced sudden high blood pressure.

"I had a severe, vascular headache from 3 PM while taping @kristvofficial_ig, threw up 3X when I got home at 6:30 PM and when my blood pressure was taken it was 150/100. My sisters insisted I go to the ER because my symptoms were alarming," Kris said.

In the emergency room, she added, her blood pressure was 200/110. "Just a bit higher could have caused a stroke," Kris said.

Kris was released from the hospital earlier today.

"I will never again abuse my body because I was a slave to my work. My goal now is to achieve a healthy work and life balance," she said.

"Last night was a scary wake up call for me and my loved ones, but it also made me realize how much my siblings and sons love and care for me. It really put my priorities in proper perspective," Kris further shared.

"I was told to have complete rest for the next few days and to try to be stress free."

This comes some weeks after Kris slammed an Instagram user for criticizing her for working despite feeling ill.

Amid her condition, Kris managed to update her followers regarding the OFW complaints about Bureau of Customs' new directive to open balikbayan boxes for inspection she forwarded to the government.

"P.S. PNoy said, 'Kristina, yung sa Customs they'll give a thorough explanation and a demonstration of the X-ray machines to be used on Wednesday.' I hope that I remembered his message accurately and I pray for a peaceful resolution for all concerned," she said on her Instagram post. — Chuck Smith
