While we want to help you get well, the use of narcotic pain medications or opioids is complicated by real dangers and serious side-effects.

American icon Ben Franklin knew what he was talking about when he said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” With flu season among us, it’s the best time to prevent the nasty bug from dragging down your health and the ones you love. Make sure you get in the habit of washing your hands frequently to limit the transfer and spread of bacteria, viruses and other microbes. It’s also important to get your flu vaccine, readily available nowadays at doctors’ offices and most pharmacies. If you do develop flu symptoms, fever, chills, aches, a cough and sore throat, limit your interaction with other people as much as possible. If your fever is elevated, and you’re having trouble drinking, eating or breathing, seek medical attention. Remember, prevention is the key.
Don’t let the winter weather outside keep you from working out. It’s extremely important to maintain that fitness regimen 12 months of the year.

In fact, a recent study showed that even a moderate level of exercise has a long-term effect on your immune system. Don’t let cold temperatures freeze your efforts to stay in shape.
