In the postmodern era, the discourse on health and disease is part of wider contexts that go far beyond biomedicine and the relationship between doctor and patient. The discourse among others includes laymen, the media, acquaintances and friends, therapeutic communities, complementary and alternative therapists, desirable practices (e.g. suitable nutrition, regular physical exercise, “proper” thinking and attitude to the world), and much more. A big contribution to the formation of the basic disposition of our knowledge, understanding and actions concerning our own health or disease presently derives from the use of online technologies and applications. The article discusses the multilayered nature of processes and some dilemmas brought about by the introduction of the Internet and advance information technologies to the relationship between man and his ill-health.
