I spent a couple of years writing a regular advice column on fitness for health in a national London-based newspaper. Most of the questions I received were from older people, and nearly all who wrote had already tried and failed to resolve their pain or ill-health through the usual routes. This section of the website contains questions and answers that covered a broad range of the common conditions, health and lifestyle dilemmas that people have to try to manage. It may just be that someone ele’s dilemma chimes with you, that their problem is similar to your own. And with luck, some part of my advice may also be useful to you.
How to search the Q&As
There are two ways to search the many Q&As on the site…
1. Search box
Just type in a relevant word in the search box at the top right corner of the screen and search the site to see if the subject has come up as a Q&A.
2. Browse by keyword
Halfway down the right-side of the page is a list of keywords. Click on any of these (except ‘Body Maintenance Manual’ or ‘Exercise’) and you will be able to scroll through the questions for that particular theme.
Add your own advice
All of us can benefit from the experience and wisdom of others who’ve been through similar situations. If you read a Q&A and have something to add to the advice, please addyour own comment (you will need to register first to do this)
Ask your own question
Please feel free to submit your own question on health and exercise (you will need to register first). I will try to answer new questions regularly on the website, and hopefully others will add their good advice, too.
