Making Change Happen

Isn’t it true that we all want to change something about ourselves or our lives? Whether it is a prompt from God, a New Year resolution, the sight of a photo, a life event, an illness or any number of other possibilities, from time to time some part of who we are or what we…

‘Tis the season…… to get the flu!!

Flu season runs from October to May, with most cases happening from late December to early March. If you have already been vaccinated your body will have been given a good chance to build up immunity to (protection from) the virus.   Even though it’s best to get vaccinated as soon as the flu vaccine…

Heartburn

This month I’d like to have a think about the current ad campaign sweeping the nation – you know, the one with people holding their stomachs and being advised to see their doctor. The advert is very helpful and gets the right message across, but of course there is a limit to how much information…

General Health self-assessment

Extract from ‘Fit From The King’   In the 21st century we are, as a nation, very ‘health conscious’. As our life expectancy has increased and our environment and health care has improved, we have come to expect more than to just live to a ‘good’ age – most of us expect to enjoy good…

Do I need to worry about Ebola?

So it has finally happened. As I write, the news is breaking that the first case of Ebola has been identified in the UK as a result of the crisis in Africa this year. We do not know currently how ill the patient is, and of course our thoughts and prayers are with them and…

Get on your bike – or bus – or train……..

Wouldn’t we all love a quick fix in order to lose weight – or maintain our healthy weight easily? And the weight loss industry and the popular media, are very well aware of this! Everywhere we look there are adverts for the latest products expertly designed to enable us to cheat the obesity time bomb…

Down in the Dumps

The media constantly bombards us with health ‘issues’ – heart disease is the main cause of death, we are busy fighting cancer so please donate to the cause, ‘change for life’ to avoid diabetes; and the obesity epidemic is certainly never far from the headlines in some form or another. With all of these very…

Malaria

So summer is finally here, and judging by the adverts on TV and social media, and various emails that keep landing in my inbox, virtually the entire population of the UK is plotting some kind of mass exodus to pastures warm as millions of us jump the nearest plane to anywhere with a few rays…

Is Prostate Cancer a Sexually Transmitted Disease?

Don’t you just love sensationalist headlines? As I write, the media is full of reports about the findings of a very recent study addressing this very question – and for once, all of the articles I have read on line and in the papers have been pretty balanced and said ‘Umm, we don’t know’ –…

Ovarian Cancer

I’m all for ‘campaigns to raise awareness of (insert random word here)’ events, and as March 2014 is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would join forces with my colleagues and duly do my bit to achieve just that! Ovarian cancer is one of the more common cancers in the UK; 6500 women are…
