It’s Exercise Right Week!

Exercise has many beneficial impacts on the body from overall health and well being to the prevention of chronic medical conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.

It’s so common to hear ‘I don’t have time for exercise’ but it doesn’t have to start with anything strenuous!

There are many exercises you can do at work, such as going for regular walks, stretching out your arms and legs and eating your lunch away from your desk. Research has shown that with 30 minutes of exercise or activity on most days of the week, the risk of chronic health problems are reduced.

So what are you waiting for, get up and take a walk!

Take care and stay healthy 😊

RAMADAN

Ramadan (/ˌræməˈdɑːn/; Arabic: رمضان‎ Ramaḍān is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (Sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief. This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.

FASTING

Fasting is the willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. An absolute fast or dry fasting is normally defined as abstinence from all food and liquid for a defined period.

Know your poop 💩

Changes to your bowels, such as colour, presence of blood, consistency and appearance can all be indicators of bowel cancer.

Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world, where 1 in 13 will develop the disease in their lifetime. So it’s important to get to know the signs to help early treatment.

Other signs and symptoms include tummy pain, weight loss and feeling tired with no apparent reason.

If you are concerned about these symptoms it is important that you seek medical help. Diagnosis usually includes blood tests and a colonoscopy which is a camera that is inserted through the back passage by a specialist.

Treatment is on an individual basis but could include surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Bowel cancer screening is available for those over 50 and includes sending a stool sample to the laboratory for analysis. By 2020 Australia will have a Bowel Cancer Screening programme for every 2 years for those aged between 50-74.

If you have any further questions or are concerned by any symptoms, come by and see me in clinic.

Take care & stay healthy 😊
