Allergies & Immunity

Allergies & Immunity (9)

An allergy is simply immunity fighting the wrong enemy. It can happen when a person's immune system reacts improperly to things which are usually harmless and treats them like parasites attacking the body. Allergies often only cause a lot of inconvenience (like runny noses and pesky rashes), but sometimes, they can even be life threatening.

Join our Allergies and Immunity Support Group to find both professionals and lay people who deal with the same problems as you do.

Alternative Medicine

Alternative Medicine (15)

Alternative medicines is a whole field of treatment for diseases developed outside conventional, standard, scientific, ‘western’ medicine. Some kinds of alternative medicine, like ayurveda, are traditional systems of medicine practiced by certain people before ‘modern’ medicine became available. Others, like aromatherapy, are more recent developments. Treatments for diseases are not as rigorously tested in alternative medicine, and there is a wide range of effectiveness: some alternative treatments work when regular ‘western’ medicine fails, but others are ineffective and may cause harm.

Learn more by joining our online group on alternative medicine. Ask questions, share ideas, and talk with people who know.

Brain and nervous system

Brain and nervous system (20)

The brain is the center of the nervous system; the nervous system is a network of specialized cells that communicate information from the senses to the brain and from the brain back to the muscles and glands.

Diseases of the brain and nervous system can be terrible, and might leave you with an absolute sense of loneliness; but you can locate doctors and many others who are coping with the same things as you in our specialized support group.


Cancers (34)

Cancers are a group of diseases characterized by uncontrollable cell growth. Cancerous cells invade and destroy neighboring healthy tissue and migrate to other parts of the body. Cancers are deadly, accounting for 13% of total human mortality world wide.

Our Cancer Support Groups will help you get in touch with doctors and patients grappling with cancer – in your neighborhood and around the world.

Children’s health and parenting

Children’s health and parenting (24)

Babies and children need special care from adults if they are to grow up healthy, happy, and as productive citizens. And parenting them is by no means, easy. Parents need to be on their toes right from when their little baby is born…with challenges ranging from newborn care and vaccinations to a healthy diet.

Join this Children’s Health and Parenting Support Group today to make the most of the time when your children are still young.

Dental Health

Dental Health (9)

You can use our online Support Group for Dental Health to find resources and services, and share ideas with others on dental care.

Diet and nutrition

Diet and nutrition (37)

Diet and nutrition, or ‘what we eat’ is the science (and art!) of nurturing the human body to reach its full potential. As a field of study, diet and nutrition is garnering more attention these days even as scientists discover how much of our health really depends on watching what we’re eating.

Brainstorm for ideas on how to beat the challenges of living healthy, with professionals and lay people in our Diet and Nutrition Online Support Group.

Ear, Nose and Mouth

Ear, Nose and Mouth (11)

Ear, nose, and mouth disorders are treated as one category in medicine because problems in one usually cause problems in the other. These ‘ENT’ diseases are very common, like the common cold or tonsillitis.

Join our doctors’ and patients’ group to meet others, locate resources, and dig out the latest reports in this field.

Endocrine System

Endocrine System (6)

The endocrine system manages your hormones, and these in turn regulate your metabolism, growth, tissue function, and even your emotions. Glands located in many parts of the body produce hormones, which then travel through the blood stream to do their work.

Our online support group for those with endocrine problems will help them find doctors and patients who have successfully dealt with similar health concerns.

Gastrointestinal System

Gastrointestinal System (12)

The gastrointestinal system is what you eat and digest your food with – from your mouth to your gastrointestinal tract, and down to the anus where the waste is expelled. All diseases connected with this process are called digestive diseases.

Join our support group of doctors and patients with digestive diseases and solve your digestive problems before they get out of hand.

Genetic and Metabolic

Genetic and Metabolic (30)

Genetic disorders are diseases caused by abnormalities in the genes or chromosomes. One large class of genetic disorders is metabolic disorders, also called the ‘inborn errors of metabolism’, when a single defective gene effects the production and functioning of enzymes.

Find doctors and patients dealing with genetic and metabolic disorders in our specialized support group.

Healthcare Industry and Policy

Healthcare Industry and Policy (5)

The healthcare industry is always growing: there are always sick or injured people among us, and we always need doctors, nurses and paramedics.

Discuss and learn more by joining our online group on the healthcare industry and policy.

Heart, Blood and Circulatory System

Men’s health

Skin and Hair
