Brooke shares | Education

Brooke Hemingway is a Registered Nurse and married to a doctor (who just ranked Sapphire in our company and will be the first diamond in Plexus with an MD). I love what she shares about PREVENTION over PRESCRIPTION because she is so knowledgeable in the medical and health field. Not to mention, she speaks my language when it comes to #prevention...instead of masking the symptoms we need to get to the root of the issue. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

"Yes, I am western medicine trained as an ICU RN and my husband is a board certified practicing physician, and we understand there is a place for medication, but seriously people....we have to wake up from the pharmageddin....medicines treat symptoms, they don't get to the root. God gave us plants and herbs and natural means to complement healthy eating and exercise and those things can be the answer for much of what ails us.
Medications may be "cheaper" because you have a zero copay or a $5 copay, but make no mistake, it will COST you big time over the years. You may need another prescription to take care of the side effects from the first one and then another one to take care of the side effects of the second one....and the cycle continues. Start studying gut health and the effects of medications, whether it be over-the-counter or prescription, and your eyes will be opened.

Start learning about gut health, blood sugar imbalance, systemic inflammation and you will see that addressing those things will lead to a life of greater health, longevity, and enjoyment.

Don't be so quick to fill every prescription or ask for an antibiotic every time you have a cold or cough. Ask questions. Learn about all the side effects. Remember, it is called the practice of medicine, not the perfection of medicine. Use these things sparingly and try natural means whenever possible. There is a place for both but sometimes more harm is being done than good with traditional means."
