Fight the Flab!

I was in a local health store recently and got talking to a couple of ladies there. They asked me if there was anything I could suggest for “unwanted flabby tummy” which they still had despite losing weight. This problem seems to be very prevalent, mainly among the female of the species! In my clinics I have found there to be two main reasons for this condition: Candida, and hormone imbalance.

Candida is an overgrowth of yeast in the body fed by too much sugar. This overgrowth causes the bloatedness and hinders the digestive process. Solutions are as follows:

- Cut out sugar and sugary foods from your diet

- Cut out foods which contain yeast, ie cakes, biscuits,

Research from dermatological Skincare brand La Roche-Posay to mark ‘Skin Health Month’, has found that almost two in three people in Ireland suffer with a skin complaint such as dry skin, acne, psoriasis or sensitive skin. The ‘Skin Health Month’ campaign aims to change the lives of people with sensitive skin by raising awareness of skin conditions among the population and encouraging them to seek treatment.

The most common skin condition reported in Munster is dry skin and eczema (53%). Women are significantly more likely to suffer with almost three in four (72%) saying that they suffer from a skin condition compared to just less than half (45%) of men. Skin complaints were most common among 18 – 24 year olds with more than four in five (85%) reporting skin concerns.

During ‘Skin health month’ which runs from March 1st – 31st,

Irish households throw away one third of food every week - New campaign urges Irish people to reduce food waste and make use of brown bin -

Irish households must become more active in preventing food waste and managing their food waste appropriately, according to a new campaign run by the three Regional Waste Management Offices. The campaign, which will run across radio, online and in cinemas, asks householders in Ireland to consider how they can reduce their food waste and to make use of the brown bin which has been phased in across the country on a progressive basis since 2013.

Commenting on the campaign launch, Philippa King, Regional Waste Co-ordinator with the Southern Region Waste Management Office said, “Irish people are throwing away one third of food purchased every week. In fact, the average family wastes €50 every month on

Oatmeal, healthy bugs and a happy heart consume porridge regularly to get the benefits of oat beta glucan for heart and gut health

The study found that consumption of oat beta glucan not only lowered blood cholesterol in mice, it also helped keep body weight down and benefited the gut microbiota, the community of microbes living in the intestines. Oat beta glucan altered both the composition and functionality of the gut microbiota. The level of butyrate, a type of fatty acid produced by gut bacteria which has been previously shown to protect against diet-induced obesity in mice, was elevated in this study. Oat beta glucan also acted as a prebiotic, and increased bacteria in the gut which are being explored by others to treat obesity.

Plant stanol esters, which too were tested in this study, were found to be the most effective

Part-time work and PRSI

March 2017


I work part-time in a local restaurant from Thursday to Saturday. The number of shifts I work can vary depending on the time of year. How does this part-time arrangement affect my social insurance (PRSI) contributions?


The number of social insurance contributions you make can affect your eligibility for the range of social insurance benefits that are available.

It is called Pay Related Social Insurance (PRSI) because the amount of social insurance you pay depends on your earnings and the type of work you do.

In general, you pay a PRSI contribution in respect of each PRSI contribution week in which you work. The PRSI contribution week starts on the first day of January every year. Because this may fall on any day of the week, the PRSI contribution week may differ from the working week. You must be
