Lawrenceville, GA (PressExposure) February 04, 2007 -- Despite the fact that we are living in uprecidented times of scientific and technological greatness, the overall health of the general population is not so great! We suffer from obesity, auto-immune disieses, diabetes, heart problems and mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression. The amazing thing is that with all of our medical advances, more and more health care experts are turning to the healing properties that nature provides.
Because more and more doctors are concerned about the over prescribing of anti-biotics, they are beginning to educate their patients about the almost miraculous benefits of fish oil or Omega 3s.
The benefits of this natural medicine are so far reaching that it is hard to believe that everyone doesn't already know about it! At least one Atlanta area doctor is set on changing that.
"Most of my new patients are in the dark about how fish oil can have such dramatic effects on their health. Fish oil is incredible for the heart and... for treating depression, high blood pressure, arthritis, PMS and many other health problems," says Dr. Marion Maloof, a Lawrenceville Chiropractic Physician.
"Most people don't know that in Italy and some other European countries, a cardiologist would consider it malpractice to not prescribe omega 3s to heart patients. They even have a licensed drug containing omega 3s because they consider it such a necessary health issue," says Dr. Malloof.
Dr. Maloof teachess his patients that fish oil could be an inexpensive and non-evasive way to help with:
â¢ Weight loss â¢ Anxiety â¢ Joint pain â¢ Autoimmune diseases â¢ Depression
You can get the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids from fish like salmon, walnuts, broccoli, cantaloupe and other foods. "But fish oil supplements containing omega-3s are a quick and easy way to boost your health, especially if you don't eat fish two or three times a week," says Dr. Maloof.
The great thing about fish oil is that you can take charge of your own health without a doctors prescription and test the benefits for yourself.
Dr. Malloof says, "More and more of my colleagues in the health field, including medical doctors, are joining in with me to recommend fish oil. While we haven't caught up with Europe yet in educating patients on how to get healthier with fish oil, but we are getting there."
