Health Care Questions

Question Your Healthcare

It should be a normal practice to ask questions about your healthcare to be sure you are on the right track toward health and wellness. However, in today’s fast paced world you sometimes don’t get enough time to ask your doctor the questions that you may have. With healthcare costs rising, asking the right questions can save you time and money. It is up to you to make the time for any questions you have about your healthcare to be sure everyone is on the same page with what you’re trying to accomplish.

I recently saw a great article about 12 questions to ask before you fill a prescription (link below) but don’t forget to ask your healthcare provider about other common questions. Here are some questions I often get asked, and ones that everyone should be asking:

  1. Supplements & Vitamins: What you should be getting for your specifics (age, sex) and what else can be used to get help in areas you need.
  2. Diet: What is a proper diet and how can you start on your way toward reaching it? What kind of foods can you eat to help you with your goals?
  3. Exercise: What should (and can) you do for exercise based on your goals?
  4. Prevention: What can you do to help prevent disease and live a healthier life?

Avoid The Flu

Flu Season Preparation

Cold and flu season can start as early as October, so here are some tips on prevention:

  • Avoid close contact with sick people as much as possible.
  • If you are sick with flu or cold symptoms, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone (except going out for necessities). Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
  • If sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough/sneeze. Use tissues once and then throw them in the trash.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Be sure to scrub and dry thoroughly. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Wear a facemask to help stop the spread of illness to others.
  • As always see your chiropractor and acupuncturist for regular maintenance support to be sure your body is well maintained.
