Quit smoking start breathing.

Today marks World No Tobacco Day 🚭

If you’re a smoker, why not consider kicking the habit for 24 hours. You might find that you’ll choose not to pick it up the next day.

There’s plenty of reasons to quit.

Smoking has a number of adverse effects on the body, from heart disease, lung disease to throat cancer.

Luckily there’s a lot of help to break the habit including patches, medication and support. If you would like to find out more feel free to come and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

Today is World Lupus Day.

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body including the skin, joints and organs.

What is an autoimmune disease?

Normally, in our bodies our immune system protects us from bacteria and viruses by producing special proteins to fight these off. In a person who suffers from an autoimmune disease, the immune system isn’t able to tell the difference between a foreign invader and the body’s healthy tissue which can cause inflammation.

At least 5 million people are thought to be affected world wide.

Lupus commonly affects women of child bearing age but can also affect children and men.

Lupus can cause a number of symptoms ranging from a facial rash to debilitating fatigue to joint pain. A common myth is that Lupus is contagious and is similar to HIV. This is not the case at all and often understanding of this complex disease is quite limited.

Diagnosis can sometimes be difficult due to the intermittent nature of symptoms. It is best diagnosed with a number of different medical professionals including the General Practitioner.

There is no current cure for Lupus, however it can be managed successfully with treatment. Treatment is aimed at reducing symptoms and preventing long term organ damage.

World Lupus Day aims to promote the impact that Lupus has on people and in turn bring more resources to end the suffering from this disease.

If you are concerned about Lupus or have any further questions, feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

Today is World Autism Awareness day

Autism is a life long developmental condition that affects the way an individual relates to his or her environment and their interaction with other people.

People with autism may have difficulties in social communication, social interaction and have restrictive or repetitive behaviours and interests.

In Australia, it is estimated that 1 in 100 people have autism.

It is usually diagnosed in early childhood but can be seen at any age.

There are certain milestones you can look out for in your child.

By the age of 18-24 months your child should be able to: - show interest in their peers/sibling

- Bring items to show you

- Follow your gaze to locate an object when you point

- Engage in pretend play

- Use many spontaneous single words and some two word phrases.

Autism is diagnosed by specialist healthcare professionals using various assessments.

There is a lot of support available for a child diagnosed with autism. This may include financial and community support.

For more information visit autismspectrum.org.au

If you are concerned your child is not yet reaching their milestones or are concerned about Autism, pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊
