Have you dosed up on the Joie De Vivre?

Our French peers coined the term back in the 17th century to express the joy of life, from the seemingly mundane acts of eating breakfast to having a conversation with a companion.

Fast forward into the 21st century and how many of us feel the joy of having a good conversation with a friend? We are often so overwhelmed by the negativity that surrounds us, our thoughts are clouded to the extent that we are not able to appreciate the small things in life.

What are you joyful about today?

Take care and stay healthy 😘

When did you last get checked? 🤔

One of my specialties is sexual health. Did you know that only 34% of young people have ever had a sexually transmitted infection (STI) test?

STI rates are increasing in Queensland and you can help reduce this. Testing is simple and easy and could involve a urine test, a swab or a blood test.

It’s important to check for STI’s at least once a year or after each new partner. Treatment is available and depending on the infection it could just mean a course of antibiotics. If left untreated, you’re at risk of spreading it to others but can also lead to long term health effects such as trouble conceiving later in life.

Don’t sit on it, test it!

If you’d like any more information or would like to get tested pop by and see me in clinic.

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 😊

Know your poop 💩

Changes to your bowels, such as colour, presence of blood, consistency and appearance can all be indicators of bowel cancer.

Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world, where 1 in 13 will develop the disease in their lifetime. So it’s important to get to know the signs to help early treatment.

Other signs and symptoms include tummy pain, weight loss and feeling tired with no apparent reason.

If you are concerned about these symptoms it is important that you seek medical help. Diagnosis usually includes blood tests and a colonoscopy which is a camera that is inserted through the back passage by a specialist.

Treatment is on an individual basis but could include surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Bowel cancer screening is available for those over 50 and includes sending a stool sample to the laboratory for analysis. By 2020 Australia will have a Bowel Cancer Screening programme for every 2 years for those aged between 50-74.

If you have any further questions or are concerned by any symptoms, come by and see me in clinic.

Take care & stay healthy 😊
