Your Health

  • Additional InformationWe encourage all our patients to share the responsibility for their health, both by preventing disease and treating existing diseases. Many serious diseases can be prevented by pursuing a healthy way of life. You may discuss ways of promoting improvements in your general health with your doctor or with the practice nurses.

    Particularly important are:

A Healthy Diet

  • Additional InformationYou are what you eat. If your diet is not balanced, your body has ways of letting you know. For example, you may be overweight or underweight or you may suffer from constipation.

    A poor diet can lead to more serious problems such as heart disease and high cholesterol levels, etc. A healthy diet helps fight off disease and makes you look and feel good. The practice nurses can give you help with this.
