You may have thought some symptoms and illnesses were due to the winter blues, but now that it is spring, it’s time to get back to the doctor for a head-to-toe checkup. A periodic well-exam for all ages is just good medical care. Regular health exams and tests can help find problems before they start. By getting the right health services, screenings, and treatments, you are taking steps that help your chances for living a longer, healthier life.
If you kick those stubborn 10lbs, you’re not the only one who will be rejoicing. As you would imagine, slimming down has the adverse effect, making your annual check-ups with your doc a lot less painful. One can probably assume that the healthier you are, the less medicine you need. It actually works that way (in some cases). Not only does exercise and eating right strengthen your immune system and support overall body functioning, but losing weight decreases your risk for health problems and may also get you to a place where you won’t need to rely on certain prescription meds anymore. Of course, go in for your regular checkup before you start self-prescribing (or un-prescribing).
