Staying Healthy For The Whole Family

When it comes to teaching your family to stay as healthy as possible, it can be difficult to get the point across. Introducing the topic to little ones can be hard to keep them to sit still for, and even with older children, being in the prime of life can numb them to reality ensuing. However, when it comes to you at the head of your family staying healthy, there’s a lot that can be done. When you’re a parent, you’ll do anything for your kids. And often enough that can mean staying as healthy as possible for their sake…. [Read More]

My Health Scare And The Meds I’ve been Taking

It’s about a month since my health scare and I haven’t worked for that month. I feel better, but the medication I was originally prescribed had a very adverse effect on me. The side effects were at times terrible to live with, of course when you are prescribed medication by a doctor, you take their word for it that they are ok, and the doctor knows best. That I have found is not the case, and you need to listen to your own body and mind, and speak out to the doctor and not suffer in silence, which is what… [Read More]

Five Common Types of Medical Misdiagnosis in the UK

According to statistics, the NHS in England and Wales treats a million people every thirty-six hours, and in 2014/15, carried out almost ten million operations, a figure that is on the rise. Across the country in the same time period, Accident and Emergency departments saw almost twenty million patients, and around fifteen million individuals were admitted to hospital. However, whilst the NHS may have been rated one of the best healthcare systems in the world in terms of safe care, efficiency and patient focus, it’s inevitable that mistakes can happen when dealing with such large numbers of patients. If avoidable… [Read More]

A Very Scary Moment

This is a follow on from my post yesterday. My heart/Health Scare. I am now three days in, taking medication which will hopefully begin to control my blood pressure which has been at a dangerously high level, well for how long I don’t know, but I’m guessing a while. As I mentioned in my post yesterday, this episode of bad health has really shocked me. Probably because I have always been relatively healthy, in fact I have never had any major health problems in my life. So coming to terms with this health issue has been very difficult for me….

My Heart/Health Scare

This week has been interesting to say the least. I woke up last Saturday or Sunday with a pain in my chest around the heart area, but being me, I ignored it and thought well it will go away I’m sure. Four days later the pain was not going away. In fact, if anything it seemed to be getting worst. I’m not the sort of person that rushes to the doctors, but this was beginning to worry me a little bit so I rang the GP for an emergency appointment on Wednesday. After a short consultation, the GP suggested I… [Read More]

Oral-B Star Wars Brush Like A Hero

I have recently teamed up with Oral-B and their range of Star Wars toothbrushes and toothpaste for children. The importance of oral hygiene cannot be emphasised enough. It’s so important to start teaching children this as early as possible. Did you know that as soon as a tooth appears you need to start brushing it? It’s important to get children into the habit of brushing their teeth, so that your children don’t see it as a chore, but as a pleasure to keep their teeth clean and in good health just like superheroes! That’s why Oral-B are encouraging us as parents to… [Read More]

Trying To Conceive: It’s Not Always Easy

In a recent survey it stated that on average it takes six months and approximately 78 sex sessions for couples to conceive. This completely goes against all those warnings that we give our teenage children about using protection when having sex otherwise you will get pregnant. Of course I’m not saying don’t use protection because for many other reasons which includes pregnancy, it’s vital to practice safe sex, but if the survey is right then the chance of getting pregnant with unprotected sex is very low on the list. In the same survey it also said that up to 1… [Read More]
