We may not like it, but we know we need to feel pain. In fact, pain is used to protect our body from harm. It is a warning system. When our body feels pain it is as if to say: “Warning! Warning! … Stop what you are doing right now. Change it. Do something, anything, […]

Summer is the high season for gastro-intestinal (GI) discomfort. More people like to drink cold drinks, temperature changes may be abrupt (suddenly hot, suddenly cold), plus better growing conditions for bacteria all contribute to more incidents of bloating, diarrhea, stomach aches and other GI upsets.

As a slogan “Enjoy Loneliness” seems to be ridiculous and absurd. It seems a perversion of the senses and directly opposite to our humanity. Many people find loneliness difficult to accept.
