It is not news that menopause marks the end of menstruation, but, it's also amazing to realise that people think that's all that is to it. NO, THERE IS MORE! And the 'more' is actually what makes menopause peculiar. This peculiarity demands preparedness and readiness for this phase in the life of every female. Question is, how do we prepare or get ready if we don't even know. A medical outreach I attended some weeks ago further opened my eyes to the need for health education on MENOPAUSE and that, is exactly what this episode is about. I hope you like it☺️. I'm extra positive you'll learn something😊. Kindly reach out to me here: d.debunkingdoctor2020@gmail, I look forward to your opinions and suggestions too☺️. Enjoy it☺️. Muchos🤗😍

Here's sharing my discussion with 3different patients with breast cancer that I met while working in the emergency room over the last 2weeks.

The reason COVID-19 has the power to shut down the universe is because of three (3) attributes: Infectiousness, Incurability and Fatality. Once curable, the other two attributes become less important. In this episode, I emphasised on appropriate drug use to prevent the world from entering a phase of DRUG RESISTANCE - when we lose control over what we've once had control of. Its incidence has started to increase worldwide and that is because of the irresponsibility of humans who take drugs ANYHOW and for the wrong reasons. Kindly listen to this episode to learn more and I'll be glad to know about what you have learnt so far from the pandemic. Share your stories with me here: email@example.com. Hope to hear from you and kindly remember to share with someone, especially someone you know is fond of taking drugs inappropriately. That's the way to show love. Thanks and have a great week.
