Health- slante, l’chaim!, hayah, sawubona! – in any country or language is a blessing, a gift- not a right. It is insurance that has to be planned and enforced. Leaving it to fate, illness and hoping for a cure is often too late, sometimes crippling if not often fatal. With comprehensive natural supplements, we can and should all die peacefully at an active fit advanced age 90years + – not old, incapacitated and demented. We owe this prevention to both ourselves, our kids and our aging seniors.
So sensible lifestyle aside, promoting health includes simple low-cost (no-xray/no-laboratory) periodic screening: for all, from childhood: of weight, girth, eyes, teeth, bloodpressure, brainfunction- memory; and ultrasound bones – at any pharmacy/ optometrist, school or clinic; and for women: checking the breasts and pelvis for risk of cancer.
The HealthSpanLife South African Natural Medicine Clinic SANMC next to Cavendish Mall on the slopes of Table Mountain in beautiful Cape Town – one of the favourite world tourist and heritage centres- is a specialist clinic staffed by experienced registered professional practitioners- a medical internist specialist (also UK registered); a homeopath; and a Muslim nursing sister.
It provides one-stop holistic screening and diagnostics, and – uniquely- evidence-based natural remedies- nutritional support for all symptoms and chronic conditions- also for menopause-andropause-genitourinary- breast-sexual dysfunction- obesity-pain/headache –chiropractic and detox ,
as well as if needed appropriate modern specialized testing and prescription medicines for all chronic major conditions including bio-identical hormone replacement for both genders (including implants);
and integrated referrals nearby (and in Gauteng) as patients desire eg for autism, acupuncture, aromatherapy, physiotherapy, aquarobics, advanced scopes, delicate restorative micro (eg hands, toes)-as well as major (eg bariatric, spinal,eye-, ear- neuro-) surgery, infertility, xray/other scans, cancer, hyperbaric oxygen, spiritual intervention, psychiatric-hypno- therapy, and eg genetic profiling and counselling, dialysis and transplantation, and stem cell therapy. …

As typified by a new review last month, World opinion is to use xray mammography and xray bone density imaging only as last resort and only in the elderly – or in staging those with breast cancer- because of the major problems and risks of xray imaging.. As world experts Profs Cornelia Baines epidemiologist in Canada, Mike Baum breast surgeon in London and Peter Gotzsche epidemiologist in Denmark say, there never has been any independent scientific evidence to support hazardous routine mass mammography crush xray screening of well women, let alone any repeated mass xray screening for decades, or the dangerous fictitious marketing hype of the American radiology-Breast Surgeons and Curves International nonsense that xray mammo screening saves lives ..
While health tariffs must rise with inflation, where med aid doesn’t cover, New Year 15% discount applies through January on cash-paid clinic services and in-house products. . .
