Are self-diagnosis and lack of professional care damaging our health?
The average American makes 26 visits to the drugstore every year to buy over-the-counter meds, compared with just three trips to the doctor’s office. To us, this seems a little off-balance. Is it because those people don’t require proper care, or don't need questions answered by a professional? We don’t think so.
It’s most probably down to lack of time. Life moves fast and taking a few hours off to visit the doctor seems unachievable. Maybe the health issue is only minor, and a quick Google of symptoms gives you a list of meds to buy. Self-diagnosis always seems good enough, until it isn’t.
The problem with this way of doing things is the lack of any expert knowledge. You walk into the pharmacy, ask for a product and part with a few dollars. There’s no doctor behind the counter and no aftercare plan in place. It’s a transactional relationship which benefits only the pharmacy and could be damaging to our health.
We want different. We demand better.
