Are you one of those people who always tries the latest vitamin or program that just came out? Do you suffer from pain and know in your heart that taking medication isn’t the best thing for you? Do you feel unhealthy and have no idea what to do about it? Here are the top four mistakes people make with their health.
#1 Ignoring the Pain, Believe it or not, ignoring pain is common. People often think it will go away. Ignoring pain is like ignoring the check engine light on the dashboard of your car. Symptoms mean something is wrong.
#2 Covering Up the Symptoms Taking a pain pill, muscle relaxant, or anti-inflammatory only covers up the symptoms, making a person think they are OK when they are not.
#3 Trying the Latest Health Fad Just because something is a new breakthrough does not make it good, safe, or effective. Fads come and go, but the things that really work endure.
#4 Taking the Wrong Supplements The latest and greatest vitamin may just turn out to be hazardous to your health. It is a nutritional jungle out there – a jungle where you could really use an experienced guide to help you identify supplements that can truly help your body heal and rebuild it from the inside out.
