What To Do If You Can't Poo.

Written by Emma Tommasini

The Purpose of Poo

As you read this, your body is working hard to:

  • Clear waste produced during its normal, healthy activities
  • Remove compounds (e.g. hormones) from circulation that have completed their tasks
  • Neutralise toxins that can harm your body, and
  • Fight off pathogens (infectious organisms) that could otherwise make you sick

Once it’s completed these tasks, the next step is to eliminate these unwanted substances. It does this by packaging them up and sending them to your intestines to be eliminated in your poo!

So, How Often Should You Poo?

DETOX: The Home

Written by Emma Tommasini

 

Sure, you’ve heard all about clean eating but what about clean living? Considering we spend 90% of our time in the great indoors, it makes sense to give your home space some all-natural love and attention.

Our homes can be filled with over 500 different chemicals. It’s estimated that air quality inside the home can be up to 2-5 times worse than outside air pollution.

Reducing your contact with chemicals— even a little—can yield clear health benefits. You might experience less allergies, asthma, headaches, skin irritation and fatigue. Long-term, you may even lower your risk of infertility, respiratory disease and cancer.

6 Reasons Why You Need Magnesium

Written by Emma Tommasini

 

Magnesium is required by the trillions of cells in your body to carry out hundreds of different processes every day. Magnesium is involved with the metabolism of your foods, hormone production, stress modulation, muscle relaxation, bone health and sleep regulation. So you can see why magnesium is a vital nutrient! With this in mind, it is important you are getting enough to ensure your body can perform these functions. Here are my top 6 reasons you may need a little more of this miracle mineral.

 

You’re not getting enough

Reason 1: Do you belong to 80% of the Australian population not meeting their minimum daily magnesium requirements? Recommended dietary intakes (RDIs) for magnesium range from 310 mg/day (females) to 420 mg/day (males), which can easily be obtained from consuming roughly one cup of cooked green vegetables, a handful of nuts or a raw cacao smoothie. Sounds doable right? Unfortunately, that’s not what everyone is eating, with magnesium deficient refined and processed foods creeping onto peoples plates.

Text Neck: The Modern Phenomena

Written by Emma Tommasini

Text neck is the term used to describe the neck pain and damage sustained from looking down at your mobile phone, tablet  or laptop too frequently and for too long. Using a mobile device often can lead to poor posture and symptoms of text neck. And it seems increasingly common

Our lifestyles today are really not in favor of treating our neck well. A recent survey states that the average mobile phone user spends 3 hours per day surfing the net or scrolling social media platforms. No wonder we are getting frequent headaches or feeling cloudy and tired all the time.

Written by Emma Tommasini

Mark has been a remedial massage therapist at First Things First Wellness Centre for 2 years with over 20 years of previous experience. During this time he has come across certain areas of the body that are commonly in pain.

Today Mark is showing us some simple but crucial stretches to help alleviate tension, stress and soreness in these common areas.

Self Maintenance is just as important as your massage so making sure these stretches are done regularly will help to lengthen the time needed between your massage treatments. Please be aware that all stretches should only be to the point of resistance rather than to pain.
