Content identified by the HONcode team

The content below is a sample of the content identified at a specific date by the HONcode team that justifies the respect of the eight ethical principles.

I, as the author of the lifestlye guide pages (and as the webmaster of this site) am just a patient who happens to have a Colostomy in 1996 (since in my early 20’s). I have no medical qualifications, and have never studied medicine. Therefore anything written on this site is taken from my own personal experience.
