Kristine Matheson (Kris) was diagnosed with incurable cancer, five years ago. Kris is now living proof that she cured herself of cancer and she wants to share her cancer curing information, with you.
Kris decided to cure herself by changing to a healthier lifestyle and diet rather than choosing radiation and chemotherapy. All Kris did was become healthy and active.

Datamonitor has reported that the use of Allergan’s Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) for the prophylactic treatment of chronic migraine may soon be introduced in Australia following UK approval this month. However, independent market analyst Datamonitor suggests that approval is far from guaranteed and assuming a positive outcome, reimbursement challenges will provide Allergan with an ongoing headache.
Martin Adams, healthcare analyst at Datamonitor comments that “Approval in the UK for Allergan’s Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) for the prevention of chronic migraine bodes well for the US and other EU filings but even so there remain significant hurdles for the company to overcome.”
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners has welcomed a recent government-funded increase in maternity training for rural and remote GPs.
The funding will assist GP training in obstetric services and is offered through subsidies to GPs who qualify for the program.

This is particularly needed in rural and remote Australia.

Often being diagnosed with an illness, of any type, can be overwhelming; especially with the average consultation, with your doctor taking only 12 minutes. The short consultation and shock can often make it difficult to remember what questions to ask; NPS has developed a checklist of what you should know before starting a new medicine.

When New South Wales policewoman Alison Fahey was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at the age of 27, it shattered her life the way she knew it. On her own admission, she’s never been the same person since. But it’s taught Alison a lesson she’d like everyone to heed: don’t think cancer can’t affect you, because it doesn’t discriminate. “Good, bad, fat or thin, you or someone you love can get cancer at any time,” she says.
It’s also taught Alison to become more focused and to set goals. That’s one of the reasons she’s set her sights on a challenge of a very different kind: inspiring young Australians to join her on a fundraising climb of Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro.
The Complementary Healthcare Council (CHC) would like to advise members and consumers not to panic over the recent publication in the British Medical Journal and articles in the media about calcium supplements and an increased risk of heart disease. The reports are based on research published last year by Prof. Ian Reid, from the University of Auckland, NZ.
The Auckland study reviewed 11 studies of people taking calcium without vitamin D. The review found calcium supplements were associated with about a 30 per cent increased risk of heart attack. However, the review did not clearly define if the 36 women who presented with heart attacks (verse 22 on placebo) had the same degree of atherosclerosis or cardiovascular disease risk factors before taking the supplement. In addition, when evaluating these results it is important to consider that the total calcium intakes of the participants in these trials were up to 2400 mg per day (dietary calcium plus supplements).

The George Institute for Global Health has reported that “Traffic Light Labelling to help consumers identify healthier food products was one of the key recommendations of the Blewett committee report published last week. Many public health groups welcome this recommendation. However, in a direct attempt to subvert the process, the Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC) yesterday launched a new campaign promoting its controversial Daily Intake Guide labelling scheme - widely criticized by public interest groups as not adequately protecting consumers health.”

I admit it, I love texting! I’m sure the phone company regrets allowing me to sign up for ‘free sms’! One in 10 Australians send more than 10 SMS messages a day and I honestly believe I send at least three or even four times that…
I’m a fan of abbreviations, nothing too crazy; but I do like shortening words to ensure a smaller text message. What I do absolutely despise is an SMS full of abbreviations – to the point that you cannot comprehend what the message is meant to say!
