IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL VISITORS TO THIS WEBSITE:
This website is entirely not-for-profit and is set up and supported by Kathryn Marsden purely as a resource to provide information on matters related to health and diet. The material Kathryn has included on this website and also in her books, articles and lectures, is for information only and will have been accumulated from one or more different sources which may include published journals, meetings and discussions with a number of different practitioners, medical and surgical consultants and international experts, and from her own personal research and experience in practice over many years. From the feedback she has received, it would appear to have helped many people. However, it is important that the reader understands that these guidelines are not intended to be prescriptive, nor are they an attempt to diagnose or treat any specific condition.
If you're concerned in any way about your health, Kathryn strongly recommends that you visit your own doctor or consultant without delay. If you are suffering from any health problem, she stresses the importance of obtaining as many details about your condition as possible and asking plenty of questions about any medicines that may be prescribed to you. Always read the pack leaflet which is included with any prescription medicine and don’t stop taking any medication without first talking to your general practitioner. The article ‘An Important Note About Prescription Medicines’ may be helpful to you. Kathryn also suggests that you keep your health care provider informed of any specific diets or supplement programmes you may decide on. In the meantime, follow a varied and sensible healthy eating programme which contains plenty of fresh, unprocessed whole foods, daily fresh fruit and vegetables, and water. Take regular exercise and try to avoid cigarette smoke.
