Vaccines, antibiotics and flu-shots OH MY! When I got sick last week, I decided not to go to the doctor and try to just use over-the-counter and natural remedies.

My friends think I'm nuts! So I pose the question to you: do we jump to the doctor too often these days, or are prescriptions and vaccinations the key to better health? Sound off on the poll below:
