Default Should we have a 'medical issues' forum?

It's been suggested that we have a forum dedicated to discussion of any medical issues that Cohenites may be facing.

This forum would house discussions people are having regarding different medical issues they face, whether they be alleviated or exacerbated by the programme, or in fact any issues precluding people joining the programme.

There has also been discussion as to whether this forum is necessary or adequately catered for as part of the 'Discussion on Cohen's Lifestyle Programme' forum.

Please weigh in with your thoughts in the poll attached.

Thanks,

asy

Hey Asy,

I do think it would be very helpful to have a seperate place for medical issues so if im having a medical issue I can see if others have experienced the same thing, because we are now more intune with our bodies and how they work more so than ever before, and therefore noticing things that may not have been noticed before. I voted YES ~! Would be really helpful also for those wanting to start the program but not sure of possible side effects etc..

Cheers Barb ~!

There has been suggestions before about having a thread for PCOS. I think it would be a great idea, as there are quite a few of us on here who have the condition.
