That was interesting. I don't waste my time going to a doctor over a cold. I have to really be feeling like "death" before I even consider going to a doctor. I feel if I can get up and take care of my dogs, then I'm not doing too bad.

My physician in Oklahoma used to always do lab tests before putting me on an antibiotic. Since being in Canada (been here 8 years), I have had more infections and more rounds of antibiotics than I ever did in the U.S. The one thing they do different is no lab work to confirm if an infection is present. My old doc said it was the only way he knew if the infection was bacterial or viral. My new doc says that's a bunch of bull...but the fact remains I was healthier and responded better to antibiotics in the U.S. than I do now.

I have since started rejecting some antibiotic prescriptions and I'm trying to tough it out before accepting anything antibiotic.

What an amazing read. Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks for posting that. It's a great article. I work in the medical field, and antibiotics and many other drugs, unfortunately, are very overprescribed. People aren't willing to make simple lifestyle changes, which would help them reduce or eliminate many of the prescriptions they need to take.

there are a few things most could do, but won't due to the brain washing we get from not just doctors, but cleaning supply companies as well. modern medicine can be great, but some old fashioned common sense would reduce a lot of the needless emergency room trips, and prescription use.

as usual, my opinion. but i don't see a doctor unless there is something really wrong, very seldom get a cold, or flu, and most anything i do is not going to be in a sterile environment. so cuts, scrapes etc. get a little attention, maybe a band aid to help them stop bleeding and back to work at what ever i go. if that. little infection normally, so why worry about it. if it gets to looking bad, then some hydrogen peroxide a couple times a day and fresh covering. simple and cheap. no doctor, no high cost prescriptions. my own form of health care reform. and it don't cost the taxpayer a cent.
