While I encourage the use of online resources, I recommend you carefully scrutinize the sources you use. A general Google search can be dangerous if you do not fully evaluate the quality of the website you are seeking advice from. I have provided links to several high-quality sites through this page to help you find reputable sites. Remember, anyone can create a website, call themselves a doctor or an expert, and give you dangerous advice.
