My favourite quotation

The Aim of Medicine
"Ultimately, medicine has a single aim: to relieve human suffering. When measured against this benchmark, different therapies can be seen as either effective or ineffective rather than 'orthodox' or 'unorthodox'. No single professional group has ownership of health, and the best healthcare requires a multidisciplinary approach. Thus there is an imperative for all healthcare professionals to work together for the benefit of their patients and the wider community."
Prof Marc Cohen who is a medical Doctor with two PhDs

Successful Lumbar Discectomy and Decompression


I have had a lumbar spinal 'Discectomy and Decompression' to deal with a herniated disc -

This is my story about how I prepared for surgery and my recovery


Anyone considering an MRI when there are concerns about the spine/discs etc should bear in mind that when lying down there is a lot less load on the spine and thus imaging may not show the true situation.
In Sydney they have an "upright" MRI scanner that can take the imaging while the patient stands. The pricing is very reasonable approx I paid $350.00 for a lumbar MRI.  Western Imaging 
An MRI could be combined with a weekend in Sydney and a show.  Affter landing at Sydney Airport 10.30 am I caught the train to Central Station and another train to Blacktown. I had my MRI and was back in town by 4.00 pm
Have a look at this very informative brochure with image comparisons of recumbent (laying flat) and upright.

Taking Dietary Supplements

On my website you will find products that I sourced initially for my own use. When it comes to taking supplements, there are so many products on the market it can be very confusing and expensive trying this and that before coming up with a supplement programme that meets your needs.

Often people have unrealistic expectations of supplements and thus it is important to understand their role in the human body.

Dietary supplements can be defined as preparations intended to supply nutrients, (such as vitamins, minerals, fatty acids or amino acids) that are missing or not consumed in sufficient quantity in a person's diet.

The importance of a good diet cannot be overstated. A good diet is a health inducing regimen which eliminates foods that are known to be deleterious and incorporates nutrient dense foods from all food groups. There is a significant difference between what will sustain life and optimal levels of nutrients.

In today’s world, soils are rapidly being depleted of essential nutrients and pesticides and other chemicals are found in ever increasing quantities in our food chain. Also our foods are becoming more and more processed, thus we need to think carefully about how we might obtain optimal levels of nutrients.

Taking supplements is not something one does for a few weeks and then reverts back to the previous lifestyle. Without a commitment, it's better not to start. My own supplement programme is intended to add value to lifestyle changes that I have embraced in order to take greater responsibility for my own health.
