You might consider yourself in good health, but you’re probably just uninformed. With the range of conditions, deficiencies and disorders available to us spreading like blood on a tissue, the odds that you really are well must be diminishing.
If you haven’t even found a puny food intolerance to call your own, you could be letting developments in the health and wellbeing industry pass you by.
Anxiety, tiredness and bloating can no longer be dismissed as part of our human condition, although that is chronic. They are symptoms in search of a diagnosis.

Life is hard. It’s full of disappointments, tragedy and jars that just won’t open, even though you did the hot water thing and the towel thing and now you have to ask someone else to open it for you - which they will and then you’ll have to joke about how you “must’ve loosened it”. But you both know that’s not true. You know you’re physically weaker than them. And now, so do they.
Sometimes, it’s just easier to log onto your favourite online retailer and use any major credit card to purchase, with free shipping, a range of self-help books - all of which are available in 27 languages, including German, French, Mandarin and the hyper-sexual eyebrow arching-based form of communication utilised by terrifying teen bride Courtney Stodden.

Welcome to the second edition of Dr Tinman’s Ignorant Remedies for the Aching Soul.
I am Dr Tinman, life doctor and former Power Ranger.
I shall be the light that guides you wide-eyed simpletons through this nightmarish tunnel of tears and sewerage we call life.

Welcome to the first edition of Dr Tinman’s Ignorant Remedies for the Aching Soul.
I am Dr Tinman, life doctor and former stunt car driver with nothing to lose.
I will be writing your new weekly advice column, with the hope of teaching you hapless infants to navigate this labyrinthine needle-pit we call life. I know other advice columns operate with the understanding that their readers are seeking a rational approach. But relationships aren’t built on rationality. They’re built on eternal point-scoring, thinking the way the other person eats sushi is weird and forced viewings of Titanic 3D.
