My view is being able to access EHC discreetly and conveniently online is a good thing, so long as it is provided by reputable providers who are registered with the Care Quality Commission. What concerns me is that some people are accessing medication from sources that may not have suitable checks in place.
Sex with the ex seems simple, but is actually very complicated. Samantha Jones from Sex and the City summed it all up when she said "Sex with an ex can be depressing. If it's good, you can't get it anymore. If it's bad, you just had sex with an ex."
There is nothing wrong with pink, and I am 100% supportive of breast cancer awareness, being a survivor myself. But there is a growing sense in the cancer world that so-called Pinkification and Pinkwashing are trivialising the disease.
It's unlikely anyone can deny the positive benefits that can be gained by adopting a healthy lifestyle. We have been shown by scientists over the years how a healthy balanced diet can help to stave off a host of ailments and diseases...
During my time as the director of the World Health Organisation's (WHO) programme in Iraq between 2001 and 2003, the WHO, together with other agencies...
It is amazing how many people claim to have had "phlebitis". The term seems to be used by the general public and many doctors and nurses to mean any pain or inflammation in the lower legs. In fact, it is a term so commonly used that many people think they know what they mean by "phlebitis" when they clearly don't.
To really address our nation's mental health, change is crucial; that means it must be considered on par with physical health by all of us, and we should approach our own wellbeing and address treatment in the same way too.
So, you must be wondering how I'm getting on in my little corner of heaven - the Kerala countryside in India? Truth is, at this moment in time, I've had better times.
What we do know is that IPF can affect adults of all ages, and that it often kills with devastating speed: barely half those diagnosed with IPF are still alive three years later, and just one in five will survive five years.
Mostly I feel desperately sad about leaving my husband who I love to bits. He is such a wonderful man, yet he will be widowed so young. I feel terribly guilty for the pain that my cancer inflicts on people that love me.
All the science shows that getting outdoors is hugely beneficial to children and young people. It improves their health, reduces stress and boosts wellbeing. Just the view of greenery from an exam hall window helps students achieve better grades.
Once upon a time in a far off land, nobody gave a flying badger what your foo looked like on the beach. But when the body police at Playboy magazine decided sex appeal was largely based on possession of triple Z breasts and fluorescent orange skin, looks management became more important... So what are the most popular weird beauty trends of the selfie age?
As much as it makes sense to limit foods that are detrimental to your long term weight loss and health goals, it's also prudent to be open minded and receptive to foods you may not like or think you don't like especially when they can play an integral part in achieving your goals.
Chocolate Week - an entire week dedicated to chocolate all over the UK. This week is a close second to Christmas with my family in my list of times of the year full of awesomeness.
2010 wasn't the best year for the UK. We gained a coalition government, the newspapers had a tiring fixation with the recently announced royal engagement, and 40 Days For Life finally made their way across the pond.
Friday is the Day of the Girl - a moment to recognise that children, especially girls, despite their own enormous determination, often face insurmountable challenges to fulfilling their potential. They face wholly undeserved social, cultural and economic barriers. Although there are more obvious girl-specific barriers, in much of Africa malaria is one of the greatest single obstacles to the fulfilment of a girl's potential - and one of the cheapest to remedy.
