The information here is intended to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her existing physician.      Medical science is constantly evolving and what is recommended today may not apply in the near future and hence readers are advised to use this website for informational purpose only and to consult their regular doctor for all their healthcare related issues.
