Fall is the season of change. Leaves turn from green into the autumnal reds and golden hues, temperatures fall rapidly bringing out the new fashion trends, and cold culinary delights are eaten less frequently in favor of the warm ones. People change as well.
For those going through the education system, fall means the start of a new school year. Those in America’s workforce see the end of sunny vacation time as the summer eclipses. And of course, what’s fall without the seasonal cold and/or flu?
We often prep for fall long before it begins, bringing out the scarves and jackets, drinking hot teas and soups, and converting our mindsets to the long drive into winter. We get our influenza vaccinations (in the past years for flu, swine, etc.) and aim to stay as warm as possible. At the end of the day though, even with vaccinations, there’s no guarantee you won’t be infected.
You may be heavily protected from diseases like tuberculosis or typhoid, but for the common cold (that’s not that common), there aren’t any real preventative measures. You could try to wash your hands constantly, take in vitamin C like a junkie and avoid sick people like they’re carrying the plague. Yet with over 200 types of colds out there, you’re not likely to bypass them all.
This is why a primary care doctor exist. Autumn is famous for bringing on the onslaught of running noses, sore throats, and resounding coughs. Luckily for us nowadays, we don’t need to die through it and resurrect two weeks later.
A lot of the time sick people ignore the symptoms claiming that they want to recover naturally, or they don’t have time to see the internist, or it’s too costly to heal otherwise. What they don’t realize though is that you can waste time, energy, and money trying to recuperate using that method. You might even worsen or extend your condition like that, especially if you don’t give your body enough rest.
Studies have shown that while vitamin C is good before a cold, it’s useless once you’re infected. (You can stop the OJ craze now.) Instead of spending your time fighting off illnesses, why not let medicine do it for you?
Walk-in clinics offer certified doctors who know what to give you (as opposed to you randomly perusing through aisle 13) and can do it at your convenience. You’ll still have your bank account afterwards and no doubt you’ll be able to get on with your life faster than you would have without going into a walk-in clinic. No waiting, no crazy charges, and a faster recovery rate than “natural healing”. Why wouldn’t you take the offer?
Change isn’t always the easiest to adjust to, but more than not, it can be for the better. You can start changing your sick habits this fall. Go along with the trend: changing leaves, changing temperatures, changing diets and clothing.
You don’t have to bother with the pain and stress of not mending fast enough. You just have to head into a walk in clinic in NYC and you’ll be set on to enjoy the rest of the season (sickness-free). If you need immediate help, our walk-in clinic is located at 274 Madison Ave, Suite 304, New York, NY, awaiting patients who want to recover.
