SOME USEFUL HEALTH TIPS

By berrysmotivation - January 13, 2016


This post would be short and straight to the point.
While I spoke to a patient the other day, I had to ask some questions. She took ill 5 days before she presented and she went to a neighbor who practices "home-care".  Unfortunately she still felt terribly ill and decided to seek professional help.

" WHAT DRUGS WERE YOU GIVEN? - " I DON'T KNOW"  

That said it all. I didn't judge her, I just simply gave her these helpful tips and she was grateful. So I decided to share these with everyone here.

There are somethings people often take for-granted and others are completely clueless about certain things.

I've come up with 10 simple things to take seriously

1. Always check the expiration dates of medications before you take them

2. Know the name of whatever medication you take

3. Do not wait for symptoms to escalate before you see a doctor

4. Do not self-medicate

5.Take your hand hygiene very serious

6. Don't be shy to ask questions

7. love yourself enough to do regular/routine check-ups

8. Seek professional help

9. Adhere to your doctors advice

10. Do not abuse medications.

I hope this has been helpful and i hope we practice these.. Take your health more serious this year, live healthy and stay strong...

P.S. more health tips coming your way.

  1. Well said. It baffles me when some patients especially the learned ones don't know what medication they are taking.

    That's why they have us, I guess. To enlighten them more not just being their Doctors.

    Well done Mute.
