Health Advice

Where to go for a reliable health advice?
People can go many places to get a health advice.

Going to the internet:

With the internet the source for answers to a health question are only a click away. The problem, though, is many people rely too much on sources that may be unreliable for their health question answers.
Before the internet became a household commodity, people only went to one source for their health questions – they doctor.
Today, though, people are searching online and hitting online databases and message boards to get the health questions answered. This can spell trouble, though.

Going to the doctor:

A doctor or other health care professional is the best source for an advice to a health question. They have the training and knowledge necessary to provide an answer. The answer a person gets from a health care professional can be trusted. They can feel secure with the answer and know that they can follow the advice without harming themselves.

The best source for the answer to a health question has been and always will be a medical professional.

When a person seeks answers to a health question from an unqualified source they are putting their health at risk. Getting advice from someone whose only knowledge may be form a personal experience or something they read somewhere is dangerous. There are many things that can go wrong. A person could take the advice and end up with an allergic reaction or prolonging treatment for a serious illness or injury. Taking this type of advice should lead to further illness or injury.
