In last week’s Round Town News, we told you about Allana and Arthur Crouch who have been battling cancer together. The couple have decided to do something positive and have set up a cancer support group for cancer sufferers and their families in Orihuela Costa. The group, which is being supported by Paul Cunningham Nurses, meets at 14.00 on the last Friday of every month at Lister’s Bar in Cabo Roig and it was at Lister’s Bar that Allana decided to arrange her very first fundraiser for the PCN charity.

IT IS commonly accepted that some people can cope with the stresses of modern day life more readily than others. Some seem to fall completely apart at the slightest pressure, while others seem to be untouched by these stresses. If a person is presented with enough stress such as bereavement; difficulties in personal life; financial problems; loss of employment or other outside pressures, they will become stressed and anxious. This may also be due to PMS, anger, or being in constant pain.

WITH THE ever increasing demand for the Fast Track weight control and Gastroband sessions, I am delighted to introduce an optional extra for people who seriously want to lose weight but feel they also need guidance on nutrition and a good fitness regime. This is a completely new concept, using Fast Track Hypnosis and also the expertise of the Sophia Health and Wellness centre's Director Tracy Allen, at my Cabo Roig Clinic.

MY daughter has been told she has ‘placenta praevia’. She will be 40 years old by the time she has her baby, and having had a previous Caesarean Section I am even more concerned about her having a complicated pregnancy. Please could you tell me a little more about this condition? Placenta Praevia means that the placenta is low-lying in the uterus, either partially or completely covering the cervix.

MANY SMOKERS find that giving up smoking is the one of the most difficult challenges they have faced. In fact, the pleasure found in smoking is one of the reasons why giving it up seems impossible to someone with this destructive addiction. There is nothing nicer to a smoker than that after dinner cigarette or the first puff of the day with a hot cup of coffee.

We interview a patient from the Costa Blanca Chiropractic Centre: Amanda from Finestrat. What was your main reason for attending the chiropractor? I have suffered from low back pain since the birth of my first child and I have experienced sciatica on and off many times. In this last year, things have been getting dramatically worse and I also began to experience some pain in my neck as well. It was then I decided something needed to be done.

THE FEET are anatomically complicated structures which we tend to use; abuse and take for granted. The foot and ankle is a strong and complex mechanical structure containing 26 bones, 33 joints (20 of which are actively articulated) and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. The heel bone is the main weight-bearing bone in the foot and has a layer of fat underneath to cushion it. In the mid section, two longitudinal and one transverse arch are maintained by the interlocking bones, strong ligaments and pulling muscles during activity; these arches serve as a shock absorber for the body.
