Emslies Floreat Pharmacy

Summers are here…

Christmas & New Year Holidays are coming soon and luckily, here at Emslie’s Floreat Pharmacy, our latest catalogue is packed full of tips & tricks to keep you and your family well and ready to make the most of the festive season.

The Christmas break is a great time to get together with family and friends but with the numerous parties and gatherings to attend even the most sensible eaters and mildest drinkers can be prone to overindulgence. Give your tummy a helping hand this silly season with our ‘how to’ guide below…

How to deal with heartburn and reflux: ¹

Indigestion caused by heartburn and reflux is caused by stomach contents backing up into the oesophagus. It can be effectively treated in most cases with simple measures such as taking an over-the-counter antacid relief tablet and sitting upright after a large meal.

How to deal with stomach cramps:

What should you do about post-indulgence stomach upset? In most cases, no specific treatment is necessary. However, if you need help relieving diarrhoea symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and stomach cramping, speak to our pharmacist at any time.

How to deal with an IBS flare up:

Those with IBS can be at an increased risk of festive flare-ups due to certain triggers ² such as your normal eating routine being thrown out the window, stress, or a lack of sleep.  To keep your IBS at bay, make sure you know your symptoms, watch what you eat as well as the portion sizes, and stock up on remedies. We are here to help you find the right product for you.

With appropriate precautions, the summer break is the perfect opportunity to enjoy time with your family. Remember to avoid overheating & heat stroke though by staying hydrated during the heat of summer. If you still feel exhausted, move to a cooler place and get some rest.
