Definitely not! Sea water contains a high amount of salt which means that if consumed, our body will have to work even harder to get rid of it. The kidneys would have to produce more urine until eventually we would become dehydrated leading to fatal consequences.
However, if you are stuck in the middle of the sea and don’t have access to fresh water, you could boil some sea water, capture the steam and condense it back into water so you’re effectively getting rid of the salt.
If you’re out on your boat this weekend, be sure to pack plenty of fresh water 💦. Ps. It was a Police boat 👮♀️ Take care and stay healthy 😘
Dr Nora - yours truly, will be presenting at Australia’s largest Non-Surgical Aesthetics Symposium in Sydney next month… alongside some of the world’s top experts. 🤓💉👄 Over the past year I’ve been closely involved in developing some exciting new technology where artificial intelligence is used for instant and accurate facial photography. It’ll be a game changer in the medical and cosmetic scene and I cannot wait to share this hard work with you all. So if you’re headed over to the Non-Surgical Symposium this year please pop by and say hello.
Doctor in the Most DANGEROUS Area of London | Peckham GP Experience 🤙
Notorious for its knife crime, gang violence and shootings I put my steel stethoscope on and decided to see what the fuss was all about.
Much to my surprise the patients were all very pleasant and polite and generally consultations were quick and easy.
Some of the most interesting differences I noted between working in London versus Australia was the strong cockney accent and the differing ethnic diversities. It is such an honour to be in a position to be able to reach out to different populations and spread the word of health promotion and disease prevention.
I’m pleased to have worked there, albeit for a short time, and felt no threat to myself. Would I be back? Well only in London would you see a dog strolling in a trolley and have the royal family on your doorstep, so yes, if the opportunity arose I’d definitely make my way back there again.
Peckham is a district of south London, England, within the London Borough of Southwark. 3.5 miles south-east of Charing Cross. At the 2001 Census the Peckham ward had a population of 14,720
We may be coming into winter but that doesn’t mean you should stop looking after your skin.
In fact during these cooler climates it’s important to pay more attention to your skin as it may dry and crack. Regularly moisturise to keep your skin supple and hydrated and don’t forget the sun block for days when the UV index is 3 or higher. And of course, great skin comes from within so make sure you keep yourself well hydrated with plenty of water.
