Lungs, Breathing and Respiration

Your respiratory system takes in oxygen and removes harmful gases from your body. Respiratory disorders include asthma, pneumonia, and emphysema.


Digestive System

Your digestive system is responsible for breaking down the food you eat in order to harness the right nutrients and energy for your body.


Skin, Hair and Nails

Skin, our largest organ, is exposed making it vulnerable to harmful elements. Protect your skin to keep this complex organ healthy and disease free.


Bones, Joints and Muscles

A healthy lifestyle can help maintain your bones, joints and muscles that support your body and protect your internal organs.


Brain and Nerves

Your brain is your body’s control center for everything from movement to emotions. Your nerves relay messages to your brain at lightning speed.


Mental Health and Behavior

One in five adults suffer from a mental health disorder in a given year including anxiety disorders, depression and schizophrenia.


Female Reproductive System

The female reproductive system allows pregnancy and childbirth. But irregularities in your menstrual cycle, infertility, abnormal bloating, and pain in the pelvic area are cause for concern.


Eyes and Vision

Many sight-threatening diseases, if detected early, can be cured or treated to prevent or slow down the progression of vision loss.


Infections and Contagious Diseases

Your body's immune system works to fight off germs, but sometimes the germ takes hold and leads to infection. Some infections are more serious and more contagious than others.
 


Ear, Nose and Throat

Hearing loss, sinus problems, and ear infections are just a few ear, nose and throat problems that make up the area of medicine called otolaryngology.


Cancer

Cancer is an abnormal growth of cells. Cancer cells do not function the way healthy cells do and can invade many areas of the body rapidly.


Sexual Health

For many people, sexual health is often one of last concerns taken seriously. But your sexual health, from birth control to sexual dysfunction, is vital to both you and your partner.


Food, Nutrition and Diet

Your body functions better with nutritious food. See how your diet affects your health and easy ways to maintain a quality diet.
 


Injuries and Wounds

Injuries and wounds, from a broken ankle to dehydration, send many of us to the doctor. Practical techniques can keep you and your family safer.


Heart, Blood and Circulation

Your heart beats an average of 80 (range 60-100) times a minute to keep you going. You can prevent, cure or control many heart and circulatory system disorders through lifestyle changes, medication, or surgery.


Diabetes and the Endocrine System

Your endocrine system makes hormones that tell your cells what to do. Diabetes is an endocrine disorder in which your pancreas doesn’t make insulin properly. In type 2 diabetes, your body’s cells are also resistant to insulin, meaning that they can’t respond to it properly.


Male Reproductive System

The male reproductive system includes the sexual organs as well as the prostate and urethra, affecting fertility, erection, ejaculation and urination.


Allergies and the Immune System

Allergies are disorders of the immune system. Most allergic reactions are dramatic immune system responses designed to "attack" the allergen. However, some allergic reactions may be mild or even go unnoticed.
