Like anything in social media, its proliferation is inevitable. It isn’t nice when you hear good things that seem to make your life better to hear about terrible things that make your life better. Lots of patients who are undergoing hypothyroidic treatments are going online to seek out traditional healthcare remedies that can only become as infectious as the disease they’re trying to treat. And there are no bad things about hypothyroidism.
Almost all modern treatments can help improve health. And the growth of social media has opened up the most potential to reach patients with traditional treatments. They can reach their fellow patients and family members, online and in person. And these patients or their friends/family/beloveds may contact others who had a similar experience and seek the same treatment.
This is a global trend of open access without any restriction. Simply not having a subscription to a healthcare website. In the absence of subscribing to any official-looking website, people may Google relevant information and make their choice.
Here’s some advice: If you’re planning to take medication, do it with as much caution as you would take any other medication, not more, I repeat, with great caution.
Wooze Page is like an advanced health site, designed with few resources and none of the hype that comes with any other website on the internet. But despite the minimal resources and no official-looking website, it has had positive effects on my health. The people there did research on my case and included their physician’s contact information.
The search helped me to find my physician by name; I discovered that my doctor was willing to answer any questions I had. Since I was dealing with a condition that brought up issues of fertility, I needed help or to meet other people dealing with similar issues who were interested in it.
Online social media is becoming more and more important than traditional online health platforms. According to a study by Kuna, “93% of U.S. Internet users access healthcare information from social media, and an almost equal percentage cited sources on social media, like Facebook and Twitter, as the most important source of information when deciding what treatments to seek out.”
So it wouldn’t be a surprise if a lot of patients are turning to the internet to find treatment or support. But shouldn’t we take the extra steps we need to to make it safe for our users? I feel like we should look at social media as an alternative source of information and not just any source of information.
But it is disheartening to know that in order to access these social media, you may have to complete unnecessary steps before you even start your search. In the event that you find that the online doctor is not who they say they are, do not be fooled into thinking you can speak with your doctor.
You need to interact with them and find out who you should be talking to. Now that was some help for me in deciding on the right place to seek medical assistance.
