I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

What to look for when you’re looking for reliable health information on the World Wide Web.

Hop on the Internet and you can get lost in the web of information and misinformation with the click of a mouse. Go to five different sites and you can get more than five opinions on whatever topic you want to learn about.

With so many voices out there vying for your attention, it can be difficult to decipher which folks have their facts right and which don’t. Thankfully, when it comes to medical information, there are a few things you can look for to make sure the information you get is coming from a reliable source.

What are those things? Funny you should ask.

Extension

The fastest and easiest way to figure out if a website offers helpful, well-researched information is to look at the end of the site’s domain. While there are billions of sites that end in .com out there, you will want to look for something a bit more substantial.

What makes a site more substantial? In America, websites that end in .gov, .org, and .edu are some of the best to go with when seeking valid health information. Sites that end in .gov are run by the United States government.

Because the government typically puts substantial money into health services, the latest research can often be found at these sites, and the information they list is often the base from which other sites begin. Those sites ending in .edu are also great resources, as they are set up for academic institutions (usually colleges and universities). Medical universities with websites can be clearinghouses for great medical information, as they, too, are frequently on the cutting edge of medical research. And sites with medical information that have a .org at the end of the URL are organizations devoted to health information. These, too, can be trusted for quality information.

Behind the Scenes

Find a great website that doesn’t end in one of the abovementioned extensions? No problem. There are still tons of valid sites out there with quality health information. You just have to make sure the site you’re on is one of them.

To determine if the site you’re looking at is useless or the best thing since sliced bread, look around until you find an “About Us” section. This part of the web site will allow you to get a look at who is behind the scenes of any website you may come across. If a site is run by a hospital, school, or other entity that you trust, you can take comfort knowing the information online is trustworthy as well—even if the site ends with .com or .net.

Updated

Once you come across a site with information on the topic you’re interested in, you’re still not in the clear. Because you don’t want to get old, outdated information. Even if it was the most accurate information available when it was published, outdated information is worthless and can actually cause you to make poor decisions regarding your health.

In order to ensure the information you get is the best available, look to see when the article you’re reading was last updated. The most reliable sites have a physician or other medical professional review and update each and every article on a fairly regular basis. This doesn’t mean every article will be updated each week, but it should be reviewed every couple years—especially if it is on a topic that has been a hot topic in the medical world.
