Welcome to your health & wellness Expertise ~ Support ~ Results
We're sorry we didn't get a newsletter out in July - Paddy has been incredibly busy with her ongoing advocacy work to raise awareness about surgical mesh, as a co-founder of 'Mesh Down Under', along with her commitments to the Ministry of Health Mesh Working Group which currently includes work on the development of robust inform consent for women undergoing Gynaecological surgery. Check out Paddy's interview on Nine to Noon last Tuesday here.
If you're interested to learn more about surgical "innovations" like surgical mesh and the "devastating consequences" they could potentially have for patients, with stories from people who have lived, or are living, a nightmare caused by a medical device which was meant to better their health but instead worsened it, have a look at this excellent documentary on Netflix - 'The Bleeding Edge' (Rating: R16+).Synopsis: "This eye-opening look at the fast-growing medical device industry reveals how the rush to innovate can lead to devastating consequences for patients."__________________________________________________________________________________________________

5 Ways You Might Upset Your Gut Microbiome, and What To Do About It
A featured piece by Metagenics.
Did You Know... We Offer 'smartDNA' Testing?
We offer 'smartDNA' testing in the form of the 'smartGUT' microbiome tests.What is the smartGUT microbiome analysis? The smartGUT microbiome analysis gives you access to leading edge DNA sequencing technology.
What is Metagenomic Analysis?The bacteria present in our gut, mouth, skin and other sites in the human body are often referred to collectively as the human Microbiome or “second genome”. Composed of more than a 100 trillion microorganisms the human microbiome outnumbers the total number of human genes by a factor of a hundred to one. This means, for every gene in your genome there are 100 bacterial genes. Genomic technology now has the capacity to view this second genome by sequencing specific regions or variable regions in the bacterial genome. It is these variable regions that enable bacteria to be identified down to species level. Each bacterial species has a unique “finger print”. This means that the analysis is similar to a crime scene investigation. If the sequence is detected then that particular bacteria is present in your gut.What Can I Expect From The Test? Do you experience:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Weight Gain
- Skin Conditions
