Ho Ho Ho – oh no….

Gavin LeSueur - December 8, 2023

Christmas comes with it’s own health risks so a bit of foresight is forewarned!

Emergency rooms and after hours clinics are often busy during this period. Try not to become a statistic…

The reasons are usually one of the following!

– Overeating. Eating too much, too fast can cause indigestion or diarrhea. It can also trigger heart and blood problems.

– Overdrinking. Too much alcohol can stress your liver. It also makes you lose control over your actions and speech, causing you to harm others physically (or emotionally). Accidents caused by drunk driving are common around the Christmas holidays

– Food poisoning. This happens a lot because platters are usually left exposed on the table until the next day. Remember to refrigerate!

– Negligence. We tend to let our guard down during the holidays because we’re too busy and stressed out. We overlook important details like giving maintenance meds to elders or keeping away knives and scissors from kids.

Christmas is something to value and enjoy with your loved ones. So don’t let health troubles get in your way. Have a healthy Christmas!
