How to Keep Looking—And Feeling—Like Yourself During Chemotherapy
1 February 2022
In the most basic sense, cancer involves cells dividing unchecked. Chemotherapy treats the disease with anticancer drugs, which may be taken orally or through an IV.

Long-Haul COVID Symptoms A Stark Statistic
13 January 2022
We are glad to report the latest research conducted by Dr Daniel Weber, PhD and CEO of Panaxea International: "A multi-centre study suggests that fewer than 30% of patients hospitalised with acute COVID had fully recovered a year later.
