I have a geriatrician friend in Arizona who recently completed an intensive 1 year medication administration training course through which he learned how to better administer pills to his patients. He recently told me that he now finds that >50% of his patients are taking TOO MANY pills (e.g. pills that overlap or are doing the same thing).
There’s a pill for everything and anything. I would wager that almost everyone 40-45 years of age and older is taking multiple pills every day. Many children are taking multiple pills every day (including my own). Medication is everywhere, and it’s available and easy.
This article is not necessarily meant to criticize all those pills, but to offer regular use of a hot tub or sauna as an alternative in certain cases.
There is substantial research that regular hot tub and sauna use can dramatically improve your health. Everything from aches and pains to arthritis to high blood pressure to skin conditions and more. Much of this research is referenced in our previous blog articles, email blasts, and Facebook posts.
People often ask me how I like being in the business that I’m in. The first thing I tell them is that I love the business because we sell products that MAKE PEOPLE FEEL GOOD.
The next time you have an ache or pain, consider a soak in the hot tub or a sauna session rather than reaching for another pill.
