As we mentioned previously, we need this site to make money so that we can continue to provide affordable access to reliable healthcare information, without becoming poverty-stricken ourselves!
One way to do this is for our visitors to check out our online store, buy T-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs & other items, and help us spread the Karle Konsultants message far and wide!
Come to our store on CafePress.com!
Another way to do this is for our visitors to click on links. When you buy from our business affiliates, they pay us a percentage! However, we have reasons for choosing the business partners we do other than just that they pay us. We have been customers or colleagues of all of the below, have checked their Web sites thoroughly, and have been very happy with their customer service.
Where possible, please visit these sites through us, and help keep this site FREE! And let us know of your experiences; if people have more bad experiences than good, we will remove any offending links. On the other hand, if you have a great Web experience with another site, maybe we can add them! Or if you want information about something not listed here, let us know, we will check out the available Web sites and add the ones who pass our scrutiny!
Links to nonprofit organizations and charities, of course, do not pay us, but we thought you might be interested in them anyway.
This page will change from time to time as we affiliate new Web sites. Furthermore, link designs and contact addresses change, sometimes without notice to us. Please bear with us. If something isn't working, please let us know.
We want to thank our affiliates who have helped us build our Internet and actual office presence. Their links are below:

In our Nutrition section, we mentioned that food can be your friend. There is a good Web site that discusses the merits of lots of foods. They overstate the case a bit, but are generally reasonably accurate, much more so than many Web sites, and they're fun. Of course medical conditions should always be treated in partnership with your doctor, but you may find some useful advice here that can be complementary to medical treatment:

As we stated on the previous page, if you smoke and you want to live a long and healthy life, it is very important that you keep trying to quit. It's so important that we are repeating that advice here. Nothing else that we can do for you will matter as much as whether or not you smoke. It usually takes several quitting tries before a smoker succeeds, so as long as you don't give up, you WILL succeed! For nicotine replacement products and programs to help support your commitment to quitting, please click either or both of these links:
