Medicine is a word for a discipline of science, which is busy with illnesses, their healing and prevention of them.
Health is the most important thing for every man. Life without ilnesses is prettier and easier. You have less of troubles, you can enjoy the life.
When you fall ill , you should find a person, who can give you advice and can help you with healing. This person is called a doctor. Every person is registered with a local doctor, who is called general practitioner too. Our doctor has wrote information about our health. When we want to see the GP, at first we should make an appointment. Then we get a term.
We should tell the GP of our troubles. Then he examinates us. By current illnesses like influenza or cold he can prescribe us a medicine. When we need to see a specialist, we have to go to the GP and he will make an appointment by specialsit.
Prevention of illensses is very important too. We should see our GP regulary once a year by preventive check-ups. We can also do prventive care at home. We can eat vitamines, lot of fruit and vegetable, we can do regular exercises to keep our body fit and healthy.
In cases where people have been injued or somebody is unconscious, it is important to call an ambulance. This people will go to hospital where they receive professional help from doctors and nurses using the newest technology in medicine.
Healthy lifestyle is more popular in recent years. People are more interested in their health. They care about the food. Many people have reduced the amount of salt, fat and sugar. They want to lose weight or lower their cholesterol and reduce their risk of getting heart disease. Regular exercise, plenty of rest, enough sleep, good eating habits , no smoking and alcohol, prevention and personal responsibility for our health can help us to stay sound and we can enjoy the life without troubles.
