As your friend, I wanted to let you know about the dangers of sugar.
I recently picked up this fantastic read by Dr John Yudkin “Pure, White and Deadly” which gives a fascinating insight to the dangers of sugar consumption and its increased use worldwide.
Did you know, there is no physiological requirement for humans to have sugar? This means we can get all of our nutritional needs without having a single spoon of white, brown or raw sugar. More worryingly, if only a small fraction of what is already known about the effects of sugar were to be revealed in relation to any other material used as a food additive, that material would be banned.
It certainly has made me rethink my outlook on sugar, and if you’re not one for reading, I’ll be sure to do a summary video soon on drnora.com.
So next time you reach out for that mid afternoon biscuit take a moment to think, ‘what benefit is this having on my body?’ Take care and stay healthy 😘
We’ve all heard about the Apple Watch but have you heard of Atrial Fibrillation?
Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a medical condition that affects over half a million Australians. It happens when there is a disturbance of the heart’s electrical system and so it beats out of rhythm. Some patients have no symptoms and others may feel faint, dizzy, short of breath, experience chest pain or feel their heart racing.
Healthcare professionals can detect AF by checking your heart rate, listening to your heart or with the use of an ECG. Those diagnosed with AF are at an increased risk of stroke than the general population. Treatment can include medication or a procedure to correct the heartbeat.
Smart watches, like the Apple Watch can detect an irregular heartbeat and if it has, it’s vital to seek medical help. For my full review on the Apple watch head over to youtube.com/drnora.
If you have any concerns or are worried about your risk of Atrial Fibrillation please pop by and see me in clinic.
Being a non-surgical injectables trainer puts me in a privileged position to seriously advocate the risks involved and the safest methods of injecting.
I spent this weekend teaching doctors, nurses and dentists the importance of safe injecting techniques whilst performing cosmetic injectables. We covered how to avoid possible complications and how to deal with them in clinical practice should they occur, keeping you all in safe hands.
Helping to contribute to a new generation of safe cosmetic injectable physicians.
It’s always a pleasure working alongside the fantastic team @dermamedical and I wish the delegates the very best of luck for their future cosmetic careers.
Earlier this year I attended the Australasians Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons Anatomical Dissection in Sydney where cosmetic practitioners get hands on live demonstrations of the use of fillers on cadavers and learn about facial anatomy. The course is spread over one day and consists of practical and theoretical knowledge. It costs around $1500. Is it worth it? Well watch on to find out.
I’ll also give you a run down of the hottest cosmetic trends of this year and some interesting pointers on why men become more attractive with age and unfortunately why women don’t.
Also discussing the use of tear trough fillers and what makes a good candidate and talk what happens when fillers need to be dissolved.
