The Best Six Doctors

Image from

Found this delightful little Health Quote on Wikiquote. Its just in time too, to remind me to take care of myself and my family better. We're all just recovering from a bout of fever, the sniffles and cough.

Our children's regular paedaetrician was away on holiday and we saw a new one. I must say, I didn't like his approach. He was very commercial. I saw at least 3 children before ours being put on nebulizers and they didn't look as if they needed it. He wanted to put our daughter on it too but we declined. And he also tried to get us to make a follow up appointment to which we said "We'll see". At the end of the visit, we were handed a hefty bill of RM250 for consultation and medicine for two children.

So, its still wiser to use the following best six doctors which are free!

The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.

~ Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990

Its the sick season. Seems like everyone is sick. At the workplace, at the malls, the supermarkets, bookshops. Everywhere. You bump into people coughing and sneezing.

Oh, I forgot, lots of people are blogging about being sick too. To those bloggers who are sick, get well soon and remember the best six doctors above!
