Taking the NHI debate to new levels

Taking the NHI debate to new levels

The concept of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is a noble initiative and receives widespread support in South Africa. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines UHC as “Ensuring that all people have access to needed promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services, of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that people do not suffer […]

Oticon Opn Opens a New World of Hearing to Former Beauty Queen

Hearing the sounds of daily life and listening to music are things that most of us take for granted. The reality is that two in every thousand babies are born with a hearing lossi and many people lose their hearing as they get older. Oticon has responded to this need and provides support to people […]

Hearing Aids Help Keep Your Brain Fit

Hearing Aids Help Keep Your Brain Fit

Keeping your brain fit so that you can stay sharp, engage socially and participate in professional or volunteer activities is a concept that appeals to a wide range of age groups, from young adults to baby boomers and beyond.  While many strategies for “healthy aging” exist, the newest evidence points to the important role of […]

Government’s programmes will violate right to access healthcare

Government’s programmes will violate right to access healthcare

Government’s National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme and Demarcation Regulations are unequivocal violations of South Africans’ constitutional rights to freedom of association and access to healthcare. Rather than engaging in such repressive behaviour, government should be funding private medical care for the poor. Freedom of association and disassociation is a right guaranteed by section 18 of […]

Healthcare Demarcation Regulations remove low cost benefit options for poor

Healthcare Demarcation Regulations remove low cost benefit options for poor

Government’s healthcare demarcation regulations came into effect on 1 April 2017. They “demarcate”, or draw a line, between medical aid schemes and healthcare insurance products.  Those lower-to-middle income earners, who use lower cost insurance products like hospital cash-back plans and gap cover (i.e. most of us), will suddenly find they have only two choices: join […]

Why your health and fitness resolution never works out (and how to make it happen)

Why your health and fitness resolution never works out (and how to make it happen)

Not everyone looks forward to the looming summer months, but one thing is for sure: many of us wish we’d stuck to our pledge of diligently visiting the gym and following a healthy diet so as to look better in our sunny outfits. “The answer is obvious,” says Ivana Buchanan, group training specialist at Zone […]

Health policy shambles

Health policy shambles

There has lately been an air of urgency from government around touting the virtues of their much vaunted National Health Insurance (NHI). Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi hurriedly published a revised NHI white paper in June this year, whilst continuing his public assault on the unsuitability of the private health sector for South Africa. It […]

Stressed out? Your diet could help

Stressed out? Your diet could help

We are speeding towards the end of the year at a nerve-wracking pace, but between now and the summer holidays lies a pile of deadlines and an ever-expanding to-do list. Most of us bite off more than we can chew these days and stress management is a crucial part of a healthy life. We know […]

Both public and private sector healthcare woes can be blamed on government

Both public and private sector healthcare woes can be blamed on government

The NHI white Paper states a number of public- and private sector failures as reasons to implement NHI. But who is responsible for causing these failures? The overarching reasons given for the implementation of National Health Insurance in South Africa is based on the National Development Plan, which wishes to improve quality in the public […]

Empty promises in the hair growth industry

Empty promises in the hair growth industry

Navigating the beauty industry can be a minefield. Every merchant promises a fountain of youth and some even pose a health risk to the unsuspecting consumer.   A popular method used is vague buzzwords that draw attention. Many products cannot claim to stop hair loss or help regrow lost hair – simply because that would […]

Consider every part of your life when facing the cancer journey says Dr Michiel Botha

Consider every part of your life when facing the cancer journey says Dr Michiel Botha

Consider every part of your life when facing the cancer journey says Dr Michiel Botha, Healthcare Practitioner and Clinical Oncologist from The Outeniqua Oncology Centre in George. Holistic care has come to mean many different things and, in the case of cancer, some of these are not necessarily very helpful. A flower or three for […]

Top Weight Loss Tips from the Experts

Spring brings a sense of excitement as the weather starts to warm up. But it also brings anxiety as we realise that soon we’ll need to swap our winter layers for more revealing shorts and shirts. Yes, it’s once again time to firm up those winter bodies and prep for the sunny seasons. Instead of […]

It is neither necessary nor appropriate for government to provide “free healthcare for all”

It is neither necessary nor appropriate for government to provide “free healthcare for all”

“It’s déjà vu all over again,” as the late Yogi Berra might have said had he read the latest iteration of the national health insurance (NHI) policy paper.  We are no closer to understanding critical details, such as how much the scheme will cost and where the money to pay for it will come from. […]

Health department’s demarcation regulations are potentially unconstitutional

Health department’s demarcation regulations are potentially unconstitutional

Millions of low-paid and economically vulnerable citizens today find they are without medical insurance and either now must pay directly out of pocket to access private facilities or rely on the vagaries of a state controlled system. Seemingly overnight, they have been deprived of their section 27 right to healthcare and their section 25 right […]

A generous dose of private healthcare to cure what ails us

A generous dose of private healthcare to cure what ails us

Few things violate the rational mind as much as the disruptive policies the minister of health prescribes for private health providers and the country. The public health care services, for which he bears direct and ultimate responsibility, are in a calamitous state, to say the least. His policies defy economic logic. They play to the […]

The benefits of working out on your lunch break (and how to make it work)

When you weigh up the pros and cons, getting your workout done during your lunch break actually makes more sense that exercising before or after work. Don’t agree? Read on to find out why it’s a practical option you can tailor to suit your schedule. It’s more time effective According to Ivana Buchanan, group training […]

Breastfeeding rate shoots up by 357%

Breastfeeding rate shoots up by 357%

A third of South African children under six months old are now exclusively breastfed. This represents a nearly five-fold increase over the last twenty years.* This massive shift is largely thanks to the combined efforts of breastfeeding advocates, healthcare providers and government. The South African Breastmilk Reserve (SABR) in partnership with Provincial departments of Health […]

Why you shouldn't skip your warm-up or cool-down session

Why you shouldn’t skip your warm-up or cool-down session

With our busy lifestyles, it is easy to rush through our exercise routine as well. If you only have 30 minutes or an hour in the gym, it might seem more efficient to skip the warm-up and cool-down, and head straight into the hard-core workouts. But while these pre and post sessions don’t always feel […]

The apple doesn’t fall far from the treadmill

The apple doesn’t fall far from the treadmill

South Africans desperately need to start getting a message across to their kids: Work out and eat healthily. According to the South African Heart Foundation: “South Africa has the highest overweight and obesity rate in sub-Saharan Africa, with up to 70% of women and a third of men being classified as overweight or obese.” It […]

The art of napping

Napping isn’t just for children. If you’re sleep deprived or just looking for a way to relax, you might be thinking about taking a nap. “Napping at the wrong time of day or for too long, can backfire, though. You’ll need to understand how to get the most out of a nap. Get to know […]

World No Tobacco Day – It’s time to quit!

It is a struggle to quit smoking. Social occasions, habit or the need for a guilty pleasure might all tempt you to indulge in “just one more” and before you know it you’re back to square one.  It is, however, worth chucking those ciggies once and for all and with World No Tobacco Day taking […]
