Health Topics - Quick Guide to Healthy Living


Welcome to Health-Topics.org !

To specialize is to know more and more about less and less. As the territory of expertise narrows, the blind spot covers just about everything else. Undoubtedly, the area in focus is brightly illuminated with inspired knowledge, but its very brightness forces the periphery into obscurity.

It is amazing how many different kinds of specialists there are in the motor garages that mushroom along the highway. The guy who checks the brakes won't do a thing about the wiring, and the chap who does that won't look at the radiator. Even tyres rate four different specialists, from the kid who checks the air pressure to the person who retreads a perfectly new tyre. If your car stops unaccountably on the highway and especially if it's raining, chances are you'll meet them all.

All too often, falling ill means much the same thing. Before you know it, you're forced into a bewildering battery of tests, some of them intrusive and disconcerting.

Hitherto mysterious and hidden corners of your body are imaged in a series of forbidding pictures. You simply had no idea what you looked like beneath your skin! Burdened with data you never suspected your body carried, you wait to discover what all this means. Your illness finally gets a name.

Twenty years into the practice of medicine and surgery, we are appalled by the fragmentation forced on the human body by this prevalent system of medicine. Compartmentalized in this or that specialty. The patient has become a body part, he or she many receive skilled help for heart, lung or toe-nail. The rest of the person is irrelevant. Most people (us included) react to this with dread and suspicion -and that's not paranoia. It is human nature.

In this site, we have provided complete information on all common health conditions with their symptoms, causes, diagnosis, treatment methods and prevention tips.

A word about drugs. Hardly any medication, especially one that is swallowed, should be used without your doctor's prescription. And, almost every drug on the market is being sold OTC!

To add to the confusion, mis-direction about side-effects ,and allergies abound. There is no safe drug that you can medicate yourself- with.

Practically, every house has cache of medication in that one rummages through in a crisis. It helps to know what each drug contains, how it acts, when it is usually popped, and why it shouldn't be! To help you understand how common drugs act, we have also included the Drugs section in the site. This is meant to guide, not prescribe.
