A lot of things can soothe our minds. Relaxing is the most important, but it’s hard to do because we’re so busy. Well, our bodies will slow us down. That nagging pain in the back or hip is screaming out loud, please take the time to rest! The longer you wait, the more difficult it becomes. So, before things get way out of hand rest. A good book is all some of us need at times because it’s the mind that needs to calm down. But other times, it’s our body that needs to relax. Find a quiet spot and sit or simply lie down. Sometimes, you don’t need medicine. All it takes is something very simple.
Now, medicines are good. Unfortunately, too many of us are taking drugs that do nothing to help our ailments. They make matters worse. Because they’re not designed for you. Be careful choosing a doctor. Check his or her background, ask family members, ask friends. Go to your attorney general’s website and see if the doctor has a medical license, see if he or she is Board Certified. Some are not. Check your medical provider. They have websites, they have toll-free numbers.
The American Board of Medical Specialties has a website at: http://www.abms.org. Look at the top home page and click on where it says, Verify Certification. According from their website you can find the status of a physician for free including whether they are meeting the requirements of an ABMS Member Board program. The phone number is: 1-866-275-2267.
