 It’s often said that eyes are the windows to a person’s soul but they are also our window onto the world. Except if you’re one of the many Australians who lose part or all of their vision every 65 minutes. Maintaining good eye health should be a priority for all.

1464_Red_and_dry_eyesOne of the most common eye problems are red and dry eyes. Redness and dryness are symptoms of many eye conditions. Some of these conditions are not serious, but others are serious and may affect eyesight.

A red eye can be a sign of eye inflammation. The most common cause of red eye(s) is conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis can be caused by allergy, irritation or infection. The treatment of eye redness depends on its cause and can include: Read More >

Health Tips for a Healthy Christmas

Health Tips for a Healthy Christmas

Health Weeks

There’s no doubt that the festive season is a challenging time if you are trying to stay healthy and reduce body fat. It usually revolves around food (and not always healthy choices), large portions and lashing of alcohol to wash it all down. Christmas celebrations can last for weeks, so there are some things you need to watch out for. There are also some simple steps you can take to stay on track while still enjoying this special time of the year.

Forget the partridges, but focus on the pear. Fruit is a convenient snack choice, and can even be used as a healthy dessert option

2 Turtle doves 
Doves symbolise peace, and you can maintain the peace by staying calm. Christmas can be a time of anxiety and heightened family tension, so have a plan to keep your stress at bay.

3 French hens 
If poultry is on the menu, try to have it without the skin, which can dramatically reduce the saturated fat content. Read More >

Summer is here – watch out for sun damage

Summer is here – watch out for sun damage

Our pharmacy services

The following article is reprinted from the Better Health Channel.

Sunburn is the skin’s reaction to the ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. You can see sunlight and feel heat (infrared radiation), but you can’t see or feel UV radiation. It can damage your skin even on cool, cloudy days.

Sunburn is a radiation burn to the skin. The signs of sunburn can start to appear in less than 15 minutes and skin can turn red within two to six hours of being burnt. It will continue to develop for the next 24 to 72 hours and, depending on the severity, can take days or weeks to heal. Sunburn will become worse with more exposure to UV rays. Mild sunburn can be treated at home, but severe and blistered sunburn requires prompt medical attention.sunburnt-skin

The long-term effects of repeated bouts of sunburn include premature wrinkling and an increased risk of skin cancer, including melanoma (the most dangerous type of skin cancer). Once DNA damage occurs, it is impossible to reverse. This is why prevention is much better than cure. Read More >

Heartburn

Heartburn

Health & Wellness

Most of us at some time in our lives will experience heartburn – after a big meal, undertaking strenuous activity too soon after eating, or drinking too much alcohol or coffee.

Heartburn (gastro-oesophageal reflux or indigestion) is really very common.

Heartburn is caused by the contents of the stomach coming back up into the oesophagus where it can cause a burning sensation in the chest or throat.

Persistent reflux that occurs more than twice a week is considered to be gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), and it can eventually lead to more serious health problems. People of all ages can have GORD.

Occasional heartburn on the other hand can be caused by eating too much, from anxiety, and advanced pregnancy – to name but a few of the causes.
