The Best Medicine!

Did you know… the number one health treatment is PREVENTION? Preventing disease before it starts is truly the best medicine! It is what the father of medicine, the Greek Hippocrates ordered, saying: “I will prevent disease wherever I can, because prevention is preferable to cure.” We at Hobdari Family Health want you to take prevention seriously… and we can help!

The Pros of Probiotics

Did you know that every time you take an antibiotic, you should also take a quality probiotic? Our bodies are home to more than 500 different types of “friendly” bacteria that we need to stay healthy. These “good bacteria” help our immune system stay strong, and help our body produce those important B-vitamins. “Good” bacteria also helps you have healthier skin and may even help prevent allergies, especially in children!

When we take an antibiotic, the medicine’s job is to kill bacteria. And it’s very good at it! Unfortunately, it does not just kill the bad bacteria that’s making your sick. It also kills your good bacteria.

By taking a Probiotic at the same time, you’re helping to replace the friendly bacteria. This helps keep your body in balance, so it can function at its best.

At your next appointment at Hobdari Family Health, we can explain more reasons why taking a Probiotic every day is a great step toward good health. We’re happy to suggest some brands that we at Hobdari Family Health have researched and think are top quality!
