About Me

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.

The body is typically subjected to various stress factors, which are combated through tissue repair, sleep, proper nutrition and a strong immune system.
