Dealing with chronic health care issues
I used to be really healthy, until I got glandular fever in my mid twenties. I got really sick and it took me a lot of time, and consultations, with different health professionals to get my issues under control. My local health clinic became my second home as I worked throug my muscle soreness with my physiotherapist, my nutritional issues with my nutrionist and got all of my blood tests and x-rays done as well. Having them all in one place made my recovery much easier. This site is my exploration of health care clinics and how they help all arms of the medical profession work together.

When your gastroenterologist told you that you need a colonoscopy, you probably weren't exactly overjoyed. However, there's good news: your colonoscopy can be a much smoother and easier procedure than you might think if you prepare for it properly.

Read on to learn about how most gastroenterologists tell their patients to prepare for a colonoscopy.
Eating and digestion are essential parts of daily life. These activities ensure that your body receives the necessary nutrients that keep you healthy. However, what you eat and digest can sometimes lead to infections and damage to your digestive system.
In cases where patients experience stomach pain, ulcers, bleeding along the digestive tract or other digestive issues, an endoscopy is sometimes necessary to diagnose the problem and recommend appropriate treatment.
When it comes to hearing aids, there are a myriad of options to choose from. Considering the technological advancements that have been made in this field, people who need these accessories for the first time may find it overwhelming making a choice on what would be best suited for them. When selecting new hearing aids, there are a number of considerations that you should keep in mind. These include the following:
Osteopathy is a practice of medicine which emphasizes on the body's muscular-skeletal system i.e. the muscles, joints and bones. The idea is to keep this system at optimal function and eliminate any pain, resulting in minimal wear-and-tear to these parts.
The body is typically subjected to various stress factors, which are combated through tissue repair, sleep, proper nutrition and a strong immune system. However, sometimes these stress factors may exceed what the body can defend itself against, resulting in disease/symptoms which need to be treated.
