No matter how much money you have, you can receive bad medical care. Dr. J tells Dr. Bunny a story of a patient of his – a wealthy 40 year-old man with great insurance who suddenly developed severe stomach pain.
He went to the emergency room and they prescribed a narcotic. He doesn’t like narcotics so he didn’t take it.
Since the pain persisted, he went to Urgent Care the next day and they prescribed him percocet. He didn’t take that either.
On the 3rd day the pain was unbearable so he went back to the emergency room. This time he insisted on a cat-scan. He had diverticulitis – a symptom of diverticulitis is constipation. Narcotics cause constipation. Dr. J. says the narcotics they gave him could have caused his intestines to explode! But he would not have felt it because of the narcotics!
What cured Dr. J.’s patient? “Doctor Google” cured him. After doing a search online, he found that he had a gluten intolerance!
The good news is that the information is out there.
Information is the golden ticket you need to save your life says Dr. J.
Today, we are all being squeezed between the doctors and the insurance companies. We are paying high premiums but are we getting care?
How do we protect ourselves?
Dr. J.’s advice To Us:
- Become educated consumers
- Listen to our bodies
- Never take “no” for an answer.
Remember! You have the right to proper healthcare!
Dr. J. and Dr. Bunny agree that in order to have good health we must get to the underlying issues.
Tune in today’s show for more details on how to get the golden ticket!
Next week Dr. J. will talk about the 4 underlying issues beneath poor health… It is going to be another great show!
