LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2018

LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- An April 10article on Medical News Today reports on a study from the National Institutes of Health and National Institute on Aging that suggests that relatively minor stressors that might last for any length of time can have longer term negative impacts. Specifically, they may increase the risk of heart and lung related problems as well as anxiety, depression, and pain management issues significantly later on in life. Dr. Michael Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles states that the connection between undue stress and numerous long-term health problems has been well documented, but short term impacts are also well established. Moreover, many of us have experienced an anecdotal short term connection between experiencing stress and day to day health issues for ourselves, says the doctor.

It's a common experience to be worried, sleepless or overworked one day, only to come down with a cold, flu, or cough the next day, says Dr. Farzam. It's also commonly experienced by people suffering from all kinds of illnesses that allowing ourselves to relax and rest can speed recovery. This leads to one important reason why turning to the services of house call doctors is often the best choice for patients, says Dr. Farzam. Los Angeles, he notes, is a city where stress is very common and no aspect of Southern California life is more universally stress-inducing than the area's notorious traffic which can make even short trips in certain parts of town an ordeal at most times of the day or night. Dr. Farzam adds that the experience of visiting many urgent care facilities is itself stressful, with long wait times, crying children, loud television sets, and other annoyances adding to the overall tension. Moreover, patients are typically experiencing that stress at a time when their bodies may be more vulnerable than usual to communicable infections -- all while sitting in a room full of other sick people.

That's why, says Dr. Farzam, in most cases the most efficient way to deal with a health issue is to take advantage of the kind of house call medicine he practices throughout Greater Los Angeles on a yearlong, 24/7 basis. He says that trying to cut a new flu bug short by getting a quick prescription to Tamiflu, for example, may tend to work better when the patient is able to relax and rest at home while waiting for the doctor as opposed to having to rush to an urgent care. He adds that, for very busy people with chronic problems or who have been putting off getting a check-up, simply taking time out to visit the doctor can induce stress itself, as it's one more thing to do on a very busy day. Using a house call physician means that patients can work in a doctor visit not only while working at home, but also in an office, a work site, film set, music studio, or anywhere else they might happen to be. Sometimes, concludes Dr. Farzam, the best health care starts by taking the time to remove unnecessary stress.
