Welcome to Dr. Higgins Online Clinic!
Obviously you are person concerned with your health and well being. Congratulations!
Alternative therapies are relatively new to the main stream Western Medicine mentality of thinking. They have grown in popularity due to the public’s dissatisfaction with the limitations of conventional treatments. The conventional medical system as I have said over and over again on my radio show uses a disease model rather than a wellness model.
Conventional medicine truly believes that a pap smear, a mammography or colonoscopy is preventative. It is not, rather it is a diagnosis screening for early detection. Prevention is being called upon more and more as people become more educated and live longer. Who wants to live longer if you don’t live healthier? In fact, a whole booming industry has developed in an attempt to satisfy this urgent need to stay young and healthy.
I strongly suggest that before you try any of these remedies, you to seek professional advise. Do not follow advice given by sales people in health food stores, or on-line advertising by marketers for the particular product they are selling. If a marketer has the money to put together a Hollywood infomercial for instance, rest assured that the money has gone gone into the marketing rather the product.
Many people have the impression that if something is over the counter, it really can’t be very potent. That is a false assumption. It is as simple as this — every supplement you take has an effect on your bodies balance.
