Suffer with Hay-fever no more!

Tags : 

I don’t know about you, but I have been a Hay-fever sufferer for years now (developed in my late 30’s) , I used to be able to take Cetirizine Hydrochloride or Loratadine for the symptoms but in recent years, only the Cetirizine worked, well thats what I thought…… until this year, oh no, now the over the counter remedies don’t work and I felt awful (almost like a cold but I knew it was the hay-fever) with all the lovely weather we were having lately, I could not even sit in the garden for long before the nose started running, sneezing every 5 seconds, and scratching my eyes making the mascara go all over my face! it was getting unbearable.

As I work for the clinic, I asked the doctor for a steroid injection, as I’d seen patients coming in for that for years and hey presto… the itchy eyes and the constant running nose and sneezing has stopped, voila!

If like me (before working at the clinic),  you had/have no clue what other options are out there for this annoying allergy, now you do!

We are a private clinic in Luton providing a fast solution to your hay-fever symptoms if antihistamines don’t work.

As most people know, Hay-fever is an allergy to grass or hay pollen, which effect 1 in 5 people in the UK,  and you can even develop hay-fever in your 40’s, although most people are diagnosed in their teens or early 20’s.

Don’t suffer any more, don’t delay call us today 🙂


Earwax Build-up

Tags : 

Do you have difficulty hearing? do you use cotton buds to clean out your ears? here are a few reasons why you may have difficulty in hearing and why you shouldn’t use cotton buds.

Earwax is produced to keep your ears clean and free from germs. It usually passes out by itself, but sometimes it can cause a problem by building up.

What causes earwax build-up?

  • being elderly (earwax becomes drier with age)
  • some people naturally produce lots of wax
  • having narrow or hairy ear canals
  • if you frequently insert objects into your ear canal like cotton buds/ear plugs/hearing aids

If you have earwax build up it can cause some symptoms for example, ear ache, hearing loss, itchiness, vertigo, ear infections, tinnitus, these problems normally improve once the build-up has been removed.

If your ears are blocked dont try and remove the build-up yourself, you can buy some ear drops from a pharmacy or some researchers have found that using a few drops of warmed olive oil can soften the wax in the ear making it easier to leave the ear. (after adding the olive oil , lie down with your ear against a towel and let the oil and wax drip out)

Anyone in the medical field can tell you, they have seen many catastrophes resulting from using cotton swabs. From punctured eardrums to super impacted wax, there are many negative consequences associated with “do-it-yourself” ear cleaning.

If you are experiencing wax or dirt build-up in your ears, contact your medical care professional for instructions on how to safely clean your ears.


Thornhill Clinic To Offer Meningitis B Vaccine

Tags : 

Hertfordshire private GP The Thornhill Clinic is now offering parents the chance to give their children the meningitis B vaccine, which is currently not yet available on the NHS.

The group B bacteria is one of the causes of life-threatening blood poisoning and meningitis, and is in fact the leading infectious killer of young children in this country. Approximately 1,200 people – typically children and babies – get group B meningitis each year, with about one in ten dying as a result.

Many of those who do survive often suffer disabilities such as brain damage, loss of limbs and epilepsy.

Late last month, health secretary Jeremy Hunt unveiled an agreement with the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation to supply the meningitis B vaccine for babies from two months of age. This was recommended in 2014 but it was put on hold because the committee believed it wasn’t cost effective.

Following a campaign, however, the committee was pressed to reconsider its decision and now the UK is set to become the first country in the world to include the jab as part of its routine childhood vaccination programme.

The vaccine will be available on the NHS from September of this year, but until then you can come and have your children vaccinated at the Thornhill Clinic, where a team of highly qualified and professional doctors and nurses will be on hand to help with the process and answer any questions you might have about the vaccination, meningitis in general and any other health concerns you have.
