Why you can trust information on Medika
Medika’s primary purpose is patient education. To provide you with access to clear information based articles in plain English. Articles that will help you to better understand a condition, disease, procedure or diagnostic
We use only government based resources for content or information provided by institutions of Higher Learning.
Our articles are peer reviewed and where possible we refrain from opinion, unless the article is specifically an opinion piece, as referred to above. This ensures that the content we publish is based on established and well-proven medicine.
In instances where the jury is still out with regard to possible treatments, causes and other unknown variables, we’ll tell you exactly that. Knowledge is power and no where does it matter more than with regard to your health.
Stay informed, stay healthy.
