February is Ovarian Cancer month.

It is estimated that in Australia there will be over 1000 new cases of Ovarian cancer in 2018. Ovarian cancer happens when the cells in one or both of the ovaries become abnormal and change into cancer.

The symptoms of Ovarian cancer can overlap with other less serious health problems. But there are four types of symptoms that occur most frequently: - abdominal or pelvic pain

- persistent bloating

- needing to urinate frequently

- feeling full after eating small amounts

Other symptoms to be aware of are:

- change in bowel habit

- unexplained weight gain or weightloss

- irregular bleeding

- back pain

- nausea

- fatigue

- pain during intercourse.

Treatment is best managed by a gynaecologist and may include chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

If you are concerned or have any of the above symptoms, come and see me in clinic today for a check up.

Let’s take action and raise awareness.

Take care & stay healthy 😊

Are you aged between 15-19 years old?

If the answer if yes come and have your free meningococcal vaccine today!

What is the vaccine for❓

The vaccine will help to reduce the rate of meningococcal disease which is a rare but serious infection that can invade the body from the throat or nose.

Why is it important❓

Most people affected by meningococcal disease fully recover. However for some people it can lead to long term health complications such as limb deformity and brain damage.

Why should I have it❓

Some of the highest rates of meningococcal disease are amongst those aged between 15-19 and so having a vaccine will help to reduce this rate.

Will it be painful❓

You should expect some discomfort when having the vaccine but this will usually be temporary and you’ll be able to get on with your usual activities.

Where can I have it❓

Book in today for your vaccine which is government funded 💉

Feel free to see me in clinic today if you have any further questions.

Take care & stay healthy 😊

Are you getting enough fruit & veg in your diet?

Research has shown that fewer then 10% of Australians eat the recommended amount.

Experts recommend that we have at least 5 serves of vegetables and 2 serves of fruit a day! 🥔🌽🥕🥒🍅🍇🥝 Fruit & vegetables contain lots of fibre, vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants which all help to keep your body healthy and can protect against long term conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke.

The recommended allowance is different for children and breastfeeding mothers, but you can find more information here: eatforhealth.gov.au

So when you’re out grocery shopping don’t forget to pick up that broccoli!

For more information on healthy eating drop by and see me in clinic today.

Take care & stay healthy 😊
