Duck away from quackery

Who doesn’t like a quick fix? But when it comes to unproven health remedies, keep your hard-earned cash in your wallet and talk to your healthcare provider first. Such treatments may seem irresistible, especially when they promise quick fixes for relieving pain, treating illness or even slowing the aging process. But they could be a waste of money or even dangerous. Think twice about products that promise “a quick cure,” treatments made from a “secret formula” and those that require payment upfront or claim limited availability.
