Ready, set, SUMMER  is just around the corner...

 

 
 

The days are longer, the nights are warmer, and Christmas is nearly here.

 

It’s the perfect time to uncover the barbie, unearth your swimsuit and make the most of our great

Kiwi lifestyle.

 

Your practice team is all for you having fun while you’re out and about - after all, it’s one of the best

things you can do to banish the blues - but the season can bring some nasty surprises, too.

We’re devoting this issue to some of the things you can do something about, before they hit, in the

hopes of a happier, healthier summer for all.

 

 
  

 

  

 

     
 
Dr Google will see you now...

Need help after hours? Now what?

Some interesting asides...

 

 

 

  Watching television is one of the laziest things you can do. It's been proven that you actually burn less calories than you do when you sleep. 

 

  Hippocrates has been called 'the father of modern medicine'. His Hippocratic Oath was written in Greece in 5th Century BC and, although it has changed over time, is still used by modern doctors. 

 

  There's an equivalent amount of carbon in the average human body to what there would be in approximately 9,000 lead pencils. 

 

  The people of ancient Egypt, partly due to their favourable, dry climate, but also giving due credit to a notable public health system, claimed to be the healthiest population in the old world. 

 

 

   
 
If you have any health questions or concerns, talk to your General Practice Team... we're here to help.
