Being fatigued feels terrible. You stumble through the day, feeling groggy and exhausted.

With all the demands on our time these days, it can be easy to struggle with fatigue, even when we feel like we are getting enough sleep. There is a difference between being tired and being fatigued. Look out for these signs to recognise fatigue:

  • Dry lips 
  • Fuzzy mind 
  • Lack of motivation to exercise
  • Feel very stressed
  • Eating more junk food than usual
  • Lack of sleep 

Did you know a nutritious diet plays a vital role in fighting fatigue? 

While having a balance between work and play, sleeping well and managing stress are all important for maintaining energy levels,  a diet rich in vitamins and minerals give your energy levels that healthy, sustainable boost you may be needing. Getting enough vitamin rich foods in your diet that contain vitamins A, C, and the B vitamins can improve your immune system and help fight fatigue.

Return your unwanted medicines for safe disposal

Consumers have been accustomed to disposing of unwanted and out-of-date medicines using general waste and sewerage options.

Having regard to the potential dangers in retaining these medicines in the home, and environmental considerations, consumers need to know the appropriate action for medicine disposal – and to be encouraged to use this option.

Old medicines lying around the home ‘just in case’ are dangerous…

exclaimationIf taken when they’re out-of-date
If taken when not prescribed for you
If in reach of little prying fingers

The RUM Project provides the safest and easiest way to dispose of unwanted and out-of-date medicines.

It makes possible the return of all household medicines to any pharmacy at anytime – for free and safe collection and disposal.

Think before you throw

Unwanted medicines are often dumped into the toilet, tipped down the sink or put out with the garbage, which starts a journey that can seriously harm the environment.

More than 500 tonnes of medicines find their way into waterways and landfill every year. Read More >

Living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a pain

Pharmacy news

17-02-2017

It’s not often discussed, but Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a very common problem, which affects a significant percentage of Australians from all walks of life.  IBS can start at any age and causes repeated tummy pain, stomach bloating and a change in bowel habits – sometimes alternating between persistent constipation or diarrhoea.   Women are more likely to have the condition.
 

IBS TRIGGERS

The cause of IBS isn’t known, but it is generally aggravated by the following things:

  • Breads and cereals with refined grains
  • Processed foods such as biscuits/chips
  • Coffee, carbonated drinks, alcohol
  • Dairy
  • Large meals
  • Too much fibre (which is hard to digest)
  • Consuming too much water with a meal
  • Cruciferous vegetables such as onions, broccoli and cabbage 
  • Stress and anxiety
 

Try the natural remedy that
works wonders

A great natural way to treat IBS and functional indigestion is withIberogast Oral Liquid.

It harnesses the power of 9 herbs including chamomile, lemon balm, milk thistle, and bitter candytuft.  These medicinal herbal extracts work together to target discomforts and pain in the abdomen. It reduces gas formation, calms over-active gut muscles, speeds up sluggish gut muscles and reduces gas inflammation. Read More >
