“My main desire is to help people prevent a health crisis before they are hanging off the cliff.”

“The overuse and unnecessary use of antibiotics has led to the rise of resistant superbugs.”

“This day in age, we want quick fix solutions which make antibiotics a temptation. We sometimes put unrealistic expectations on our medications.”

“A recent study shows that patients that were more satisfied with their health care were actually sicker. The doctor may not always tell you what you want to hear, but they just may be right.”

What are the takeaways from this podcast?
– If you think you need an antibiotic, be very careful with them.
– Become educated on what needs antibiotics and what does not.
– If you are prescribed antibiotics, you should take all of them. Taking a partial amount allows for stronger bacteria to rise up.
– After taking antibiotics, it is so important to replenish your body.
