Responding to symptoms is emergency care, not health care. Necessary at times, however in emergency situations is it only necessary. First, determining if the situation is truly an emergency is a must. This is the hardest part.
If your situation is not an emergency, then symptoms could actually be a good thing. Remember that the intelligence of your body is more intelligent than you!
Of course the best course for anyone’s health is true prevention. It’s so simple, yet so difficult to do. Every choice you make either moves you closer to good health, or closer to a lower quality of life.
