Mental Health Week 🧠

1 in 5 Australians between the ages of 16-85 will experience a mental disorder in any year. The most common mental illnesses include depression, anxiety and substance misuse. Mental health not only affects adults but it also affects our youth of today.

Being a GP, mental health covers over half of my consults in any given day and the commonest feeling? Feeling alone and isolated.

We are so fortunate that mental health is no longer ‘taboo’ and there is so much help out there from support groups to psychologists and medication. The hardest step is recognising the need to ask for help. This mental health week, I am encouraging those of you who may be affected and haven’t made a connection for help to make a brave step forward. You’re not alone and I’d love to help you on your journey back to good health.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

Is it safe to drink sea water? 🌊

Definitely not! Sea water contains a high amount of salt which means that if consumed, our body will have to work even harder to get rid of it. The kidneys would have to produce more urine until eventually we would become dehydrated leading to fatal consequences.

However, if you are stuck in the middle of the sea and don’t have access to fresh water, you could boil some sea water, capture the steam and condense it back into water so you’re effectively getting rid of the salt.

If you’re out on your boat this weekend, be sure to pack plenty of fresh water 💦. Ps. It was a Police boat 👮‍♀️ Take care and stay healthy 😘

Severe Heat Warning ☀🔥☀ After the past week of intense flooding and rain, the skies are opening up to give us Queenslanders a hot end to summer. Temperatures are set to soar and the UV index will be hitting up to 14, so it’s time to get sun smart.

Be sure to slip on sun protective clothing, slop on sunblock spf 30+, slap on a broad brimmed hat, seek shade and slide on wrap around glasses.

And remember to stay out of the sun during peak times from 10am to 3pm to reduce your risk of sun exposure and skin cancer in the future.

For more information and advice feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy x

Sharing is great… just not your germs 😷

You won’t believe the number of patients I see with the common cough or cold after a holiday break from work.

If you or a loved one happened to have caught one be sure to rest up at home before heading out.

And remember the best way to prevent spreading illness is to cough and sneeze into a tissue and wash your hands regularly. 🤧
