Small changes that you can make to boost your health during Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Visit The Doc
The five-star spa Talise Fitness will be offering free breast cancer checks in its luxurious surroundings from 20 to 31 October 2013.  Talise Spa Medical Director Dr Elisabeth Makk will also provide nutritional and preventative advice during your appointment. Advance booking is essential, please call (04) 366 6810 or email MJwellness@jumeirah.com


Donate Your Bra
Clear out your lingerie drawer and donate your pre-loved bras to the K-Lynn Support My Girls campaign. The team will send them to refugee centres in Uganda. Leave them at drop boxes in the store. And while you’re there, sign the K-Lynn pledge to say that you will give yourself a breast check too. See www.facebook.com/klynn.co for details.


Change Your Diet
Got a sweet tooth? Get a natural sugar fix, says Kcal’s Head Nutritionist, Laura Smith. “Avoid foods high in sugar and satisfy your sweet tooth with a healthy helping of berries. These small but mighty saviours are packed full of nutrients and are a great source of natural, cancer-fighting chemicals. Take your pick from raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or cranberries.”
