Many of us believe that we are very healthy but the truth is that we fail to recognize signs of illness in our lives because these signs have been present in our lives for so long that we falsely believe that they are just a part of life and that there is nothing necessarily wrong with us. As an example, acne, problematic skin, snoring and many other “normal” things in our lives could actually be signs of an illness and we must be vigilant and be very careful of these things. If you have acne that will not go away or that is resilient, it is a good idea that you go and have it checked at a doctor. However, the sad truth is that the doctor too is trained to treat illness and not to look for the underlying cause of the symptoms. As such, he could give you some medication from the hospital or some chemical based cream for your acne that may work temporarily and may cause the acne to come back as soon as you have stopped the cream or treatment.
Know when to heed advice
When you visit a doctor, you have to be clever enough to know when to take the doctor’s advice and when to look elsewhere. As an example, if you have a persistent snoring problem, this could be a sign of something more dangerous and therefore, your doctor might recommend that you get a mute snoring device to control your snoring because sometimes, snoring can cause you to forget to breath while you are asleep due to a condition called sleep apnea. This can be very dangerous and can even cause death in some cases. In a case like this, it is advisable for you to take the doctor’s advice and buy the device.
However, if you go to the doctor with an acne problem or a skin condition, he might have you buy a bunch of chemical based creams and lotions from a super pharmacy which may not be a good idea because these chemicals in the cream may be more dangerous than the acne or the bad skin itself.Commercial skin products are designed to work temporarily and your skin condition will usually come back on once you have stopped using the product. This will cause you to use the product again and their goal is to have you use the product continuously so that they make the most money from the product and your situation however, the product can be cancerous due to continuous usage.Read more
