How many of you are afraid to go to the doctor? I am not particularly fund of going to the dentist. Part of that reason is because I generally always hear the drill they are using in my mouth and it is annoying. Recently when I took the twins to the dentist, they put on kids movies and that clearly held the kids attention. Maybe they should do something similar for adults.
“Health is above wealth”, says the saying. What is more valuable than the condition of your body when all the systems function well? It must be our first concern and we have to treat out bodies properly. Daily it seems as if people forget what is most important. We ignore all the signals of our body until the pain is unbearable. Then you put away your visit to the supermarket, your work on custom research papers, and your plans for the day and get your strength together to go and consult a doctor.
People don’t feel positively about any hospital. The direct association is with pain and illnesses. No matter how friendly staff is, no matter how well the interior is designed, you will not see a lot of smiling faces around. You are on your way to the hospital with pains but entering the building you wonder what doctor you need to consult.
He will advice you where to go next. Still feeling bad not only because of the pain but also because of being in the hospital, you go to see the right specialist. And here you meet with another typical trait at public hospital, extremely long lines. You see at least a dozen people waiting in front of you and think about a custom research paper left at home. You could finish it by the time you get to see the specialist. But you came for a purpose and will wait till needed. After an hour and a half of waiting you finally get to consult a specialist, who makes you jump through a lot of hoops. You had to do various not quite understandable movements that made you exhausted. Angry on yourself, the doctor and the whole system you run out of the lab with a sheet of paper. This is medication required along with a dozen of so called “useful advice”. Regretting about the whole thing you buy expensive medication and go home, hoping for the pain to disappear under attack of different remedies. After a week you have to go back and show up for the doctor to see the result. Here is one more unpleasant visit and another strain. Finally, you go out of the hospital with assurance that you are fine.
You are cured but what is the price? Numerous strains and worries still sit in your head and you keep thinking that there is still something radically wrong with you. During your life you are to visit a hospital quite a few times. How to lower the frequency? Try to keep fit and there will be no problem. Why do we become concerned only after there is no other way but to go to the hospital? When you hear or feel the first signal that there is something wrong, try to delete the cause immediately and start working on improvement. You don’t necessarily need to stay on medication to be healthy. There are a lot of other ways to avoid an unpleasant visit. If you seek, you’ll find a way, but the first step is to love your body and treat it the right way to prevent trouble from happening. If you don’t agree with proposed advice you can decide what the lesser evil is: To follow it or to prepare for the better world.
Don’t be afraid of the doctor. Show him or her just how much you know and how in tune you are with your body.
