An Ounce of Prevention is Better Than a Pound of Cure

As health care cost go up and plan eligibility becomes more complicated and less affordable, the best healthcare will be to #stayhealthy. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been around for centuries and so has Traditional African medicine with its centuries-old indigenous herbalism and African spirituality. A “prevention healthcare policy” should include Holistic Health providers, #Herbs, #Roots, #HealthyFoods, and preventive measures like your Mom’s chicken soup. With healthcare becoming something only the wealthy can afford, it becomes more important that we keep in mind that our ancestors learned to treat their own illnesses. Their wisdom, folktales and self-learned cures will have more significance in coming years. Doctors are trained for the most part (the medical model is) to treat the ill. What we have learned from modern science is that prevention works. So, remember that an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.
