Hi there! Welcome to my blog. My name is Debbie and I am a housewife from Alice Springs, Australia. I love the life I have here with my wonderful husband and our four kids. It all started about a year ago when I realised that I couldn't read the label on a jar of food I was trying to open. I asked my husband if there was a problem with the way the label had been printed but he said he could read it just fine. He booked me an appointment at Vision2000Kota and they carried out some test to rule out any serious problems. Thankfully, I just needed to start wearing glasses. I hope you enjoy my health and medical blog.

Your injuries may have been reset and you may have been discharged from the care of the surgeon, but now you need to work with a professional at a physiotherapy clinic so that you can get back to where you were before this happened. Much of your remedial work will, however, take place at home and outside of the immediate supervision of the physio.

Everyone knows the importance of medical checks. Keeping on top of your health and spotting any potential problems early helps you stay in top form and avoid illnesses that could have been prevented. Just because you know it's important, however, it doesn't mean you act on that knowledge. One of the worst groups in terms of going for regular medical checks is men in their 20s. It's easy for young men to feel like they're in perfect health and that they can worry about getting checked when they're older.

Few patients relish the idea of surgery, which means identifying approaches that enhance patient-centred care is essential. Like laparoscopic techniques, robotic surgery is minimally invasive, yet it retains some of the benefits of open approaches by using 3-D views of the surgical site. Thanks to this technique, patients experiencing certain procedures, such as prostatectomies, experience a smoother post-surgical period. In addition to a reduced risk of blood loss, this includes a faster return to work and reduced scarring.

Any person, regardless of their sexual preference and orientation, puts their health at risk when they engage in any form of unprotected sex. Sexual health clinics test and can treat various sexually transmitted infections, commonly known as STIs. These clinics can also give advice on sex-related matters. Unfortunately, many people in Australia and most parts of the world are actively involved in sexual activities, yet very few are willing to get tested for a sex-related infection or disease.
