4E--Sept. 3, 1972 Sunday GaxeUe-Mail -Crwlistwi, Wnt Vlr»lnl» Homemakers to Study "Your Own Health Sandra West, J.R. Greenlee Wed During an average life span, 90 per cent can be chalked up to good health, while all the illnesses of an entire lifetime only total 10 per cent. That is one of the points that is brought out in the lesson, "Your Own Health." which will be studied during September by all clubs affiliated with the Kanawha County Home Demonstration council. The lesson was written by a medical doctor, Marilyn " A. Jarvis-Eckert, who is state program leader in nutrition education for the West Virginia University extension service, and she" taught the lesson to leaders from each of the clubs during a training session. The leaders, in turn, will teach the lesson to their fellow club members this month. SHE STRESSED the great doctor shortage today, and noted that the problem will not be corrected in the lifetime of most people today. Because doctors are so scarce, they are badly overworked, she added, and patients can save them time by keeping accurate records with complete details. She also noted that the dcc- tor can cure a disease, but he cannot prevent it from occurring or recurring--that is the responsibility of the individual, for he is there all of the time, while the doctor sees him only briefly on periodic occasions. Prevention should be at the top of the list for everyone as they seek to ward off ill health, she said. "You have to prevent your own ill health- yon are the one in control of your own body--it is your job, not the physician's," she added. However, there are times when a visit to the doctor is necessary, and on occasion, hospitalization. These include any sudden onset or severe occurrence which interrupts our usual good health, such as broken bones, heavy menstrual flow, unconsciousness, fever and cough, abdominal pain, severe chest pain, sharp painful calf, acute back pain, persistent vomiting, trouble urinating, and a few others. A second reason for seeing a physician is for little symptoms that persist, such as painful joints., m i d -p e r i o d bleeding, chronic cough, swelling, a lump that grows, recurrent abdominal pain, unusual bleeding, sudden change in appetite, sore feet, or un- planned weight loss. * · * IN THE LESSON, Dr. Jarvis-Eckert notes that the third reason for seeing a physician is for health assurance or a good health certificate, and in this portion she deals in detail with all that is involved in a complete physical examination. The fourth reason for going to a doctor is pregnancy and should not be delayed, since the cost of delivering a baby covers prenatal care, too. The first trip should be made after the second missed period and should include a complete physical examination, blood, urine and tuberculosis tests, plus advice on nutrition and exercise. The mother-to-be should return monthly until she reaches six months in her pregnancy Deborrah Evans Weds Leonard L. Dorcas Jr. Married Saturday evening by the Rev.

She adds that plenty of soap and water--not some expensive colored spray--still is the best way for cleaning cuts and bruises, and that application of ice plus elevation of the injured part will pravsru swelling in sprains or bruises.
