What is your preferred method of dealing with an ailment or poor health?
Do you prefer medication, home cures or the 'just get over it' philosophy, in other words mind over matter? Do they work?
I usually like to avoid medications if I can and I really never bought into too many home remedies, although I hate the "get over it" mentality. In most cases - like with a headache or a cold or something - I try to wait it out. If it's something more chronic though - I pop a pill if I can.
I'd have to say my approach is individualized, depending on what the ailment or condition is. For chronic conditions, I see my physician and we work out a plan to treat whatever it is with the least invasive methods possible initially. I am open to some alternative and complementary methods of treatment, but use them in conjunction with traditional health methods.
Homeopathic doctors, unless I lose a leg...then its pretty much straight to a hospital.
Whiskey. It will cure anything. (anything but a hangover!)
I would tend to think that that poor health and ailment are some what serious. After being ill for real, There is a difference when over the counter medications are obsolete and poor health is not something to be dealt with alone.
Finding out your condition from professionals is very important for everyone's health.
I never run to the Dr. or take pills when I'm sick. I spent a lot of time in Asia, and the thinking there is often different from here in the U.S. Over there, you often hear things like "worry has made my mom sick" or "my uncle died from anger". I believe if we take care of our bodies and mind, we can let our body do what it does best - heal itself. When I'm sick, I make a point to eat better, make sure I meditate and find balance in my life, and add some extra exercise. Of course, I don't have a chronic condition like diabetes or high blood pressure. If I had those, I would take medicine until I could fix the problems in my body that were causing those conditions, like excess weight, poor diet, too much salt, etc.
I am quite the problem for my doctor the few times I have been injured. I am typically in very good health but I am allergic to many over the counter painkillers. When I sprained my foot while training off ice (figure skating jumps) I quickly found that prescription painkillers do not work at all for me or are simply something that makes me drowsy, not a true painkiller. I don't like the idea of taking anything that doesn't work and no one will ever make me do so. As a result, I have taken very few medications in my life. If pain really has me out for the count, I give up and get in bed until it passes. This is when my love and my family know I am really hurting.
If I have something that is posing a problem other than pain, I will surely see the doctor but taking medications is something I am wary of and would avoid if at all possible as I have thus far.
