Men and youth support links

Men and youth support services

Men and youth support services are an integral part of health and fitness in the fast moving world of the 21st century.  Many variables effect lives and different circumstances can create uncertainty and anxieties; which may lead to mood swings and create tension and restless behaviour.

This can happen not only only with the breadwinner, but also through the hormonal changes of the teenage and youthful years.  A lot of health and fitness requirements can be managed  to a large degree and with some control by consuming the correct foods that supply a natural and constant flow of blood sugar through healthy nutrition.  A correct diet is a start to a more quiet and controlled existence, especially when aided by breathing and relaxation techniques.

Eliminating alcohol and substance dependance is a first step in curtailing many of the ills of our modern society.  If however the pressures caused by the stresses of the modern day society create personal issues, then there is professional help to assist with the issues relating to these problems.  Please read through the enclosed links and seek help and support when and where ever needed.

An Essential App for Medical Knowledge and Healthy Living (Android, iPhone,iPad)

This Web MD app is equipped with a useful symptom checker where you can select the part of the body that is troubling you and when the appropriate symptom is chosen, learn about potential conditions or issues relating to that health problem.

This medically reviewed information is from an extensive database about the conditions relevant to you, including the symptoms, causes, risk factors, treatments and questions to ask your doctor.  The reader is able to research a medicine or treatment, how it works, why it is used, side effects, warnings and more.

The app also gives you a handy guide and first aid information for medical emergencies, ranging from abdominal pain in adults and children down to a wrist injury.  This part of information is built into the app and accessible even without an Internet connection.
