Hi and welcome to all about health and wellness. I'm Dave.
Are you concerned about your health at all?
Do you have questions about health, wellness and nutrition that you want honest answers for?
Then it's your lucky day. You've come to the right place.
Now, don't get me wrong - I'm no health or fitness guru. Far from it! But I believe our health is something that we need to keep abreast of every day especially if, like me, you are on the wrong side of 60!
I guess I'm reasonably fit for my age, although I have gone through a few medical procedures in recent years. Ah the joys of growing older ;-) I found out I had high blood pressure about 8 years ago. I had no idea until I went to the local clinic for a chest infection.
I was put on medication straight away and still take it to this day.
I had both cataracts done about 4 years ago. Completely painless and well worth it - I could see colors quite plainly, first time in years!
Then in 2009 I had a heart attack. Fortunately it wasn't too severe and I had a stent put in which did the trick. Up until then I had been a smoker all my life which was one of the major factors causing my heart attack. I guess this was a good wake-up call as I haven't had a cigarette since :-) In fact, I can't stand the smell of them now!
Last year (2011) I had surgery for a hernia repair and I have just had a colonoscopy and endoscopy.
How about you? Are you feeling "not quite 100%"? Do you need information on different ailments and conditions? Hopefully I can help you in some way.
Through the pages of this site I hope you and I can find some empathy with each other and between us we can live our lives just that little bit healthier! This site will be a work in progress for some time, so if your question or problem isn't answered right now then come on back.
And if you have a specific question, then don't be shy and drop me a line. Or better still, sign up for my newsletter and I will keep you up to date with all the latest news.
For now I hope you enjoy your visit.
Here's to your health and wellness!
