Posted by:

Liposuction is mainly used to improve how a person looks, rather than providing any physical health benefits. In many cases, the patient would probably achieve the same results, and sometimes better ones if they adopted a healthy lifestyle – good diet, regular exercise and a good night’s sleep every night. 

Experts say that liposuction should ideally only be used if the individual did not achieve the desired results with a lifestyle change. ...

The Common Cold of STIs

Posted by:

I’m going to open this article with a hard bit of truth that some people really struggle with: If you are a sexually active adult, chances are pretty high that you either have or have already had an HPV infection.

Mythbusting the IUD

Posted by:

Several years ago, the IUD fell out of favor as a method of birth control here in the United States. For the most part, this was due to the catastrophic health problems women were experiencing at the hands of one specific IUD that, thankfully, has been off the market since the 1970s.

Posted by:

When watching your weight, it’s easy to fall into patterns of eating the same things over and over again. You have no idea how many times we see people fail because they get bored with overly strict eating restrictions they place on themselves and end up giving up entirely.
