Rely less on prescriptions

Posted:

Popping pills for every ailment may be avoiding the real problems.

When it comes to our health, doctors say that being promised a pain and sympton-free life can be dangerous.

Many doctors believe that they should focus on the health of the patient over time instead of providing instant relief.

They believe that many are forgetting about the side effect of medications and the consequences of mixing two or more medications.

Experts are recommending that you try things like physical therapy, losing weight and quitting smoking instead of trying a quick fix.
