Conditions

Examining the facts on a wide range of medical conditions and illnesses, begins here. We help you identify differing symptoms and how they may be linked with the cause. Understanding the sometimes numerous causes of a symptom is the first step towards alleviating the discomfort and establishing the most promising form of treatment. Remember, controlling the symptom with medications is not a cure because it only masks the underlying mechanism, as in the case of anti-histamines for hay fever or pain killers for a painful joint.  Isolating the cause, avoiding it and, if necessary neutralising it, has beneficial long term effects.
