Make Yours a Healthy  Summer


Live Life Well

Here at Action Medical we know there are many things we can all do to improve our health and our quality of life. Great medical care by itself is not enough. We have to provide our minds and bodies with good fuel in the form of healthy foods. Exercise keeps our joints, muscles and organs functioning well and able to better utilize that fuel. It is also just as important for us to provide our bodies and minds with periods of rest and relaxation. 

We have redesigned our website to assist you as you embrace a healthier lifestyle. From basic health questions to great recipes, we are adding content you will find both informative and enjoyable. Please email us recipes you would like to share or questions you would like answered.   You can explore our new website here.


In The News

You can't turn on the television or open a newspaper lately without seeing more about the problem with prescription painkiller addiction. Overdoses from these drugs have actually caused the expected lifespan of Americans to decrease! The information about these and other pain medicines can be very confusing.

Even if you don't take these medicines yourself, you should be aware of the potential complications for the benefit of those you love. What kind of medicine do your parents or children take? What over the counter medicine have they been taking for years without even thinking about the potential side-effects?

Learn more about this confusing issue in this article.
