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.

This evening I attended an informative women’s health update event held by Pindara Private Hospital.

In case you didn’t know, the cervical screening program has changed and it’s now offered to those aged 25-74 every 5 years. You will be due your first test aged 25 or 2 years after your last PAP smear. And of course if you have any symptoms such as abnormal bleeding, pain or discharge seek medical advice sooner.

Medicine is always changing and it’s vital as a General Practitioner to keep up to date to give you the best possible treatment.

We covered other topics such as breast disease including lumps and skin changes, the new guidelines around polycystic ovarian syndrome and the controversial vaginal mesh.

I’m looking forward to sharing it all with you very soon.

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

Take care and stay healthy 😊
