Very often we compare ourselves to others and wish we were different in some way. Sometimes we can use these thoughts in a positive and productive manner to better ourselves. Most of the time however, we get negative and end up in a spiral that can be damaging to our confidence and self-esteem.
Today, I’m asking you all to look in the mirror and reflect on the amazing person your are. Throughout life you’ve jumped through hurdles and achieved many things whether big or small. 💪
Sending you all some positivity and feel good vibes. 💖
Up to 24% permanent fat reduction in just 15 minutes?
Join me as I try a body sculpting device that uses Radio-frequency Energy to heat layers of fat whilst maintaining a comfortable skin temperature to induce permanent fat loss.
TRUSCULPT ID - CUTERA
truSculpt iD treats the entire fat layer, resulting in an average of 24% fat reduction. The hand pieces can cover up to 300cm2 of treatment areas including the abdomen, legs, arms and under chin. The handles are placed onto a plastic sheet overlying the body and no suction is required for the device to work.
Full results are seen at 12 weeks post treatment and individuals may require more than one session. The procedure is suitable for any BMI but must not be used on those who may be pregnant or breast feeding or those with pacemakers. If you are considering treatment, always seek the advice of a medical professional.
Approximately 1 in 70 Australians have a condition known as Coeliac Disease. This means that they are unable to eat products that contain gluten, including bread and foods made with rye, wheat and barley 🍞. When such foods are eaten symptoms such as tummy ache, tiredness and weight loss can occur. These symptoms disappear once gluten is taken out of the diet.
Most Australians don’t know they suffer from Coeliac disease. Diagnosis is important because if it’s left without management, small bowel damage can occur leading to poor absorption of vitamins.
Testing for coeliac disease can include a blood test which your doctor can organise, however, you should have eaten gluten in the preceding 6 weeks.
Coeliac disease is managed with a strict gluten free diet, sometimes seeing a dietician can be helpful.
If you think you may be affected and would like further advice, please pop by and see me in clinic.
Don’t be alarmed if you see me and Annie wearing masks today in clinic. Given the nature of COVID-19, we desperately don’t want to spread any bugs to our patients who may be immunocompromised, elderly, frail or pregnant.
So if you’ve recently travelled abroad in the past 14 days or have been in close contact with a case of Coronavirus, or are concerned you have symptoms of the virus, please call the clinic in advance.
We are unable to test for the virus and we will happily give you advice and direct you to a local testing centre.
