This Australia Day don’t get struck down with food poisoning and follow some simple tips to help keep you and your belly happy.
Be sure to cook your meat thoroughly until it’s piping hot with clear juices. If you like your meat rare, cook the outside of the meat well so that any bacteria can be killed off. 🍗
One of the commonest reasons of food poisoning is cross contamination from raw meat to cooked meat. Store your raw meat separately from your cooked meat and use different utensils when dealing with either.
For those cold salads and dips don’t leave them in the sun for more than two hours.
If you do have symptoms of a tummy ache such as diarrhoea or vomiting drink plenty of water, rest up and see your local family doctor.
Wishing you all a happy Australia Day.🇦🇺 Take care and stay healthy 😘
Every day we wake up with an opportunity to reinvent ourselves for the better.
This year I’m separating my cosmetic work from my general practice health tips, giving you the best of both worlds. So if you’re interested in seeing more before and after pictures of cosmetic procedures be sure to follow @drnoracosmetics.
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.
After a quick exercise regime, I usually kick start my day with a skinny cappuccino. ☕️ After decades of research the World Health Organisation (WHO) have removed coffee off the possible carcinogen list and there’s increasing evidence that it can have positive impacts on health. The WHO have designated coffee as potentially being protective against cancer of the uterus and liver. 🤓
Though, as with every good thing, it does need to be drunk in moderation as drinking over 4 cups a day can actually increase your risk of heart disease, cause high blood pressure and fast or abnormal heart rhythms. And having your coffee too hot can burn your food pipe leading to other medical consequences.
