Holiday Havoc on Your Body

 

The Holiday season is undoubtedly a very special time of year.  From the tree, to the gifts, to the time spent with family, it’s a widely anticipated season that always seems to sneak up fast.  

Though we don’t want to admit it, we all go through different waves of emotions at this time and these emotions can effect your body.

Your body responds to the way you think. When you feel stressed, anxious, or upset, your body reacts in a way that might tell you that something isn’t right. High blood pressure, stomach ulcers, or even headaches might be physical signs that your emotional health is out of balance.

Cold & Flu Bug, Be Gone

 

Most of us enjoy the seasonal change at this time of year.

What most of us don’t appreciate is that our bodies also go through change, adjusting to the outside around us. Often times this can make us vulnerable to catching a cold virus or a flu virus.

There are some common, natural herbals that have solid medical studies behind them and are easily available at any your local stores.

“900 seconds, That’s It Doc”?

You took the afternoon off. You arrived 15 minutes early. You waited 25 minutes in the small waiting room before having the opportunity to wait another 10 minutes in a smaller room.

When the doctor finally walks in, he “hid” behind his computer screen for another 2 minutes before getting down to business. Ten minutes later you walked out with a prescription and a receipt for a $40 copay.

Is Direct Primary Care for you?

BPC Stationary

As both a Board Certified Family and Sports Medicine physician for over 12 years, I hear a lot of complaints with the healthcare system, especially when it comes to receiving quality, affordable primary care services. A Primary Care Physician should be the point person for a health tune-up, with a focus on wellness and prevention, but I often hear people say that most primary care physicians, treat their patients more like cattle than people. I hear complaints about costly acute care clinic and ER visits, and all that time off work just to wait for hours to be referred to back to a primary care physician for follow-ups. I even hear complaints about primary care physicians using prescriptions to treat symptoms versus taking the time to actually help people get better. Oh, and the hidden fees. I could go on, but thankfully, my practice offers an affordable solution that addresses each of those complaints and it’s called, Direct Primary Care. Direct Primary Care is an innovative healthcare approach that just might be the answer to your family’s health and well-being. After reading this, if you still have questions about how it works or how it can help you, please don’t hesitate to call or stop in our office anytime.
