An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of Cure

general practitionerWe have all heard the adage “An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of Cure”, but how many of us really take it to heart and make sincere efforts to proactively take care of our health?


Do you have a primary doctor? Do you visit them regularly for annual exams and checkups? Or, like many American’s, do you only schedule an appointment when you already sick? Making sure to see your doctor regularly can save you big in the long run.


Medical care is far more beneficial when the doctor and patient are able to work together over time to keep your body running smoothly and your health in check. Your doctor can help you make sure that your blood levels are all within range and make lifestyle and nutrition suggestions.


Early detection of illness also gives you the very best opportunity to cut problems off at the beginning rather than waiting till more advanced levels where treatment can be more difficult, expensive and less effective.


Primary doctors, also known as General Practitioners, assist patients in maintaining their health and wellbeing. When needed, they coordinate the treatment of long-term conditions with specialists.
