I feel that I’m under stress and close to burnout. I’ve been to the doctor who told me to slow down and take things easy – easier said than done! He gave me some sleeping pills and relaxants, but I feel that this is not the right path for me. What advice do you have?

First and foremost: treating symptoms will never resolve the issue at cause. Luckily you have sufficient awareness to realise that you are under such stress that you’re on the edge of burnout. You can take action to turn the clock back! You can do a great deal in setting and respecting your boundaries, above all […]

I regularly have problems with my lower back. Sometimes, a few times a year, I get such pain that I’m flat out for a week or more. The physiotherapist tells me I have herniated disc and I should have it operated on, but that doesn’t feel good to me. Is there anything else to be done?

First of all, my own story. I was about 22 when my back first gave out on me. Despite many different treatments by physiotherapists, acupuncturists and – much later – chiropractors and other health practitioners, it took another 30 years or so before I started discovering the actual source of the pain and weakness. Even […]

Certain physical abnormalities (‘mechanical factors’) […]

There are many arguments for and against the use of supplements. And everyone must find his/her own truth, especially these days when OTC (Over […]

What can be done to help with cataracts?

First of all it’s a good idea to do your research – as on this Wikipedia site – to learn more about the anatomy of the eye and current medical practice when dealing with cataracts. Then I recommend visiting your GP, unless you can go directly to an eye-specialist. When a cataract has been diagnosed, […]

Mononucleosis (Pfeiffer)

This is just another example of how a series of symptoms is given a name and the patient is told: “Yes, it can take quite a while, yes, you’ll be pretty tired, so just stay at home and take it easy until it’s over.” When you are aware that the cause of this ‘illness’ is […]
