Join me as I tour the Versace Dessert table explaining which are the healthy options and which are not and why.
Chocolate with a cocoa content of over 70% is generally regarded as being nutritious with claims of helping to lower cholesterol, lowering blood pressure and being packed with anti oxidants. Of course, these benefits are only seen when eaten in strict moderation as too much can have an adverse effect on the body, causing weight gain, lethargy and other medical illnesses.
So next time you’re at the dessert table looking at your options, think with your mind rather than your tummy so that both your body and heart will be happy.
Please remember to always eat treats sensibly as part of a full healthy balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
Thanks for watching and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment in the comments section below or pop by and see me in clinic.
One in every ten women are affected, no amount of dieting can help and most don’t know it exists… In this episode we talk to a patient diagnosed with Lipoedema and take a listen to her fascinating heart murmur at both rest and during exercise.
Lipoedema is a condition that mainly affects women and is characterised by symmetrical swelling in the legs, thighs, buttocks and sometimes arms. It is due to the way fat is deposited under the skin in an uneven manner instead of in a regular pattern. It can be extremely painful and the areas that are affected have a tendency to bruise easily. Lipoedema can result in fluid retention in the affected areas leading to a condition known as lymphoedema. It is thought to have a genetic basis, however, the cause of the condition is not yet fully understood.
If you or someone is affected with lipoedema please see your General Practitioner for further assessment and management.
It’s the smallest handheld stethoscope I have come across. Once paired to your mobile device, it allows you to take a listen to the sounds of the body in real-time with unlimited recording.
The best feature about the Stemoscope is the ability to listen to the heart in real-time. This proves to be great for educational purposes, for example, if you are a medical student, a nurse or simply someone who is intrigued about the sounds of the body.
Let me know what you think about the sound quality. Is sound A or B better?
