Blackmores provides you with ways to share and discuss ideas and tips about natural health and wellbeing. As health can be a sensitive area, we ask that you remain tactful and use common sense when you are involved in discussions with others.
On our site you can share your health concerns, and we encourage you to be honest at all times. However, if you use inappropriate language, or discuss a threat of serious disease or physical harm to yourself or another person, we will edit/remove your posts immediately. If you feel you are having an emergency medical problem, seek professional help immediately. Some useful links include:
