After-all, which one of us will not be appreciative of the processing of food through the digestive system or a good understanding of cardiovascular disease? Supportive family members should be familiar with the nature of Alzheimers disease for example, since it affects the elderly mostly.

MedlinePlus is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine - NIH - National Institutes of Health, designed specifically with you in mind.

This website is about symptoms, diagnosis and causes and treatment of diseases.

As you interact with the categories of videos and the index of a to z medical diseases with articles, you would recognize the treatment modalities adhere to standard medical protocols that ultimately lead to surgery.

Traditional medicine is a system. You eat animal foods. They make you sick. You go to the doctor. She/he prescribes pharmaceutical drugs. These medications may help. Yet ultimately after varying rounds of prescribed drugs, you end up under the surgical knife.

The system of prescribed drugs and surgery – and now supplements - tries to “HEAL” health problems. Yet it is not the only way and certainly not the best way of treatment. The truth of treatment lies in food, diet and nutrition.

Eating food as medicine and medicine as food is the most powerful and effective TREATMENT OF HEALING. The food you eat either makes you healthy and strong, or sick and diseased.

Animal foods create diseased states of being – for example, the different types of heart disease. Eating foods according to plant-based nutrition maintains your health and heals you naturally.

You may just find MedlinePlus is a user-friendly website, subdivided into 3 broad areas:

1. HEALTH TOPICS: This section covers their 800 a to z medical diseases. There’s also a list of a to z health topics, for example: back pain, parasitic diseases, and thyroid cancer. All concise explanations within 2-3 short paragraphs in easily understood language.

2. DRUGS & SUPPLEMENTS: I am impressed with their inclusion of supplements and medicinal herbal data. Drugs & Supplements is subdivided into two key sections:

A) Drugs: Deals with everything about prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines including side effects, dosages, and special precautions. Browse this section by generic or brand name drugs.

B) Herbs & Supplements: Here you can browse dietary supplements and herbal remedies for effectiveness, recommended dosages and drug interactions.

3. VIDEOS & COOL TOOLS: This is a package of health videos on topics such as human anatomy, surgical procedures and health news. It comes with interactive tutorials and games. Also have some calculators – for example body mass index – with which you can check your health. Videos & Cool Tools is a 3 part design:

A) Interactive health tutorials: Here you can learn everything medically available on a variety of diseases and health conditions. These tutorials are animations with audio and easy-to-read language.

B) Anatomy videos: These focus on how diseases affect body parts and organ systems.

C) Surgery videos: Each of these videos are prerecorded webcasts of surgical procedures and are about one hour duration. They are presentations of actual operations at varying medical centers in the United States of America.

NOTE: A) The videos open up in a second window. If you have a pop-up blocker, you will need to disable it to view the programs.

B) When you click on the above link, you will see that medline.com is also available in Spanish. Or you can just copy and paste the following into your browser: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/spanish/druginformation.html
