HEALTH & WELL-BEING


INTRODUCTION

Here are a number of links for people seeking help, information or advice about health related issued. Perhaps unwisely, I've left the sex and sexuality-based ones on its respective page of the site (probably to give it an air of respectability). nurse

The links on this page cover a wide variety of resources - not only conventional medical and health areas, but 'alternative' practices of varying degrees. Inevitably some of these links may be thought of as mere quackery, but I am not going to be the arbiter on a debate on such merits. I've made one exception, however - the work of Deepak Chopra can be found on the 'Metaphysics' page, together with a rather damning condemnation of his methods and practices.

As is the case with any medical or associated procedure (though, strangely enough, this is never said about other matters), readers are not advised to undertake any drastic remedial measures without medical advice. I know that, in some areas, professional doctors are seen as wicked, self-interested 'establishment' figures - but they can do an awful lot of good sometimes.

CONVENTIONAL MEDICAL LINKS

ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES

There's a lot to be said for the so-called 'alternative' (or complimentary) therapies. Certainly chiropractic, osteopathy and homeopathy have done wonders for me in the last few years - as I've lost weight, gained general fitness and cured my asthma. The disadvantage (such that it is) to all this is that I've become much more aware of the state of my "internal" health - particularly my liver, gall bladder, pancreas and ileo-cecal valve.

This being said, there has to be some sort of arbitrary line drawn between actual treatment and metaphysical hocus pocus - links to the latter can be found on the Metaphysics page.
