On an average day we take over 20,000 breaths. If you’re a smoker, a proportion of those breaths will be filled with toxic chemicals such as nicotine, ammonia, formaldehye and carbon monoxide, chemicals which sound like they belong in a science experiment not your body.
This week I’m encouraging you to reduce your cigarette consumption and see for yourself what difference it’ll make to your lungs and energy. The more oxygen your body is able to take in, the more energy you’ll have and the healthier you’ll be.
If you would like more help and advice, please pop by and see me in clinic.
Heart disease is one of Australia’s largest health problems with over 1.2 million people being affected. Risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol being overweight, alcohol and smoking.
This month is all about raising awareness of having a healthy heart ❤
For more information and advice on how you can reduce your risk of heart disease, come and see me in clinic today.
Did you know smoking increases your risk of heart attacks, strokes, lung cancer and lung disease just to name a few.
But it’s never too late to stop 🚭
Just 1 year after you stop smoking your risk of a heart attack drops sharply, at 2-5 years of quitting smoking your risk of stroke may reduce to that of a non-smoker and 10 years after quitting, your risk of lung cancer drops by a half.
There’s a lot of help and support for anybody wishing to stop. Book in to see me today for more information.
Let’s make 2018 be the start of a smoke free life.
