Worried about healthcare? The writers of WiseBread.com have included 50 ways to get the most out of healthcare in their new compilation book “10,000 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget.”
Julie Rains, the author of this particular segment, offers suggestions on personal preventative health such as exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy weight, and ceasing smoking. In general, I’d say stop all destructive measures you are personally inflicting on your body. Life is tough enough without you adding insult to injury. Take care of the body God gave you and the results will be worth the effort.
In other preventative measures, Rains suggests doing recommended self-exams, going for free blood screenings and blood-pressure tests and knowing the details of your symptoms when you enter the doctor’s door. Take free or nominal-fee health classes but beware of when the classes are sponsored by the pharmaceutical companies who make the drug or treatment being recommended. Ask about anything you don’t understand.
