You’re not alone 💖

One of the biggest benefits of social media is awareness.

Domestic Violence has played a large role in the news over the past week and as a result more victims have been coming forward to seek help from this.

Domestic violence is gender neutral and isn’t always about physical abuse but it also includes:

- sexual abuse where you’re forced to engage in unwanted sexual activity

- Verbal abuse including name calling

- Emotional abuse with demeaning comments or threats - Financial abuse where access to money could be limited

- Spiritual or cultural abuse so you’re not allowed to practice your beliefs

- Stalking by means of being followed or being constantly watched.

Most victims feel trapped and stuck but it’s important to know that there’s a lot of help out there.

If you or a loved one are affected please come by and see me in clinic for further help and advice.

Take care and stay healthy x

How much do you know about the medicine you are taking? 💊

If the answer is very little then it’s time to get Medicine Wise!

This week is all about raising awareness of the medicines you and your family could be taking.

If medicines are not used correctly, serious issues can occur, in fact did you know that each year 230,000 Australians are hospitalised with problems by their medicines?

Medicines can either be prescribed or be brought over the counter. It is vital that you have an understanding of why you are on each medicine, how to take them properly and what potential side effects they could have. It is also important that your medications are reviewed regularly by your doctor to ensure that are still needed.

So next time your getting a script make sure you’ve got all information you need.

If you have any concerns or questions please pop by and see me in clinic.

Even Dr Nora needs a good dentist to help keep her pearly whites healthy, so you should too 😬

It’s dental health week and dentists recommend brushing your teeth for least two minutes in the morning and night using a soft bristled brush with a flexible neck.

It’s really important not to press too hard on your teeth as this can damage your gums and the coating around your teeth, otherwise known as enamel.

But did you know you should also be brushing your tongue? This helps to reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth and helps to keep the breath fresh.

And don’t forget to floss as this removes plaque from between your teeth helping to prevent gum disease.

65% of Australians haven’t seen the dentist in the last two years, don’t be part of the statistic and book your check up today, I’ve already had mine!

For more advice or if you have any concerns pop by and see me in clinic.

Mums are Superheroes! 👏

This week marks World Breastfeeding Week🤱

Breast milk is often considered to be the baby’s first vaccine as it’s rich in nutrients that help to fight infections such as pneumonia and help development of the gut.

It is important that if you are breastfeeding that you look after yourself as you’ll need a good amount of energy to keep up your supply. This includes having a good healthy balanced diet with sufficient iron and vitamins that can be found naturally in fruit, vegetables and meat.

Sometimes breastfeeding doesn’t always work out and don’t fear if that’s you. There are alternatives such as donor milk or formula. There different types of formula on the market - Cow’s milk based, formula with added probiotics, gold, thickened and hypoallergenic formula.

Cow’s milk formula is suitable for most babies and it is similar to breast milk, however it is always important to check with your doctor or pharmacist before using.

But of course if you are able to, it is recommended to breastfeed exclusively for the first 6 months of life, you can supplement breast milk with solids for up to 2 years as wished.

If you have any questions or concerns about breastfeeding please pop by and see me in clinic.
