This Australia Day don’t get struck down with food poisoning and follow some simple tips to help keep you and your belly happy.
Be sure to cook your meat thoroughly until it’s piping hot with clear juices. If you like your meat rare, cook the outside of the meat well so that any bacteria can be killed off. 🍗
One of the commonest reasons of food poisoning is cross contamination from raw meat to cooked meat. Store your raw meat separately from your cooked meat and use different utensils when dealing with either.
For those cold salads and dips don’t leave them in the sun for more than two hours.
If you do have symptoms of a tummy ache such as diarrhoea or vomiting drink plenty of water, rest up and see your local family doctor.
Wishing you all a happy Australia Day.🇦🇺 Take care and stay healthy 😘
Every day we wake up with an opportunity to reinvent ourselves for the better.
This year I’m separating my cosmetic work from my general practice health tips, giving you the best of both worlds. So if you’re interested in seeing more before and after pictures of cosmetic procedures be sure to follow @drnoracosmetics.
In this episode we take a listen to the heart during the ‘extreme’ stress of cosmetic injections.
As we get ready for injecting, our model’s sympathetic nervous system starts to kick into play, otherwise known as his 'fight or flight’. This causes a number of changes to the body due to the release of chemicals from the brain such as adrenaline and cortisol. This impacts his heart making it beat stronger and faster and increases his respiratory rate just to name a few changes. This is paralleled with listening to his heart in real time whilst the injections get going.
Once the procedure is complete, our model’s parasympathetic nervous system takes over, otherwise known as 'rest and digest’. Here, different chemicals are released from the brain to the body, causing the heart to slow down and return his bodily functions back to normal. We can clearly hear this as he celebrates the end of his treatment. Truly fascinating.
As you can see treatment time is fairly quick with initial inflammation post procedure expected to resolve after 10-15 minutes. Changes are expected to be seen around 3-5 days with optimal results at 2 weeks lasting 3-5 months in duration.
Dermal filler placed strategically along the cheeks can help to give definition and contouring to the face. It also creates an up lifting effect to the lower facial features and can help reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth). The procedure takes around 20 minutes and results are optimally seen at 2 weeks and can last up to 12-18 months.
