Usually it’s the older generation that we see turning down or ragging on new trends, but it seems like a lot of older patients are turning to more holistic, alternative medicine sources to help with their ailments.
“As the world is turning to more natural and healthy ways of living, the internet has managed to lure everybody to equip themselves with knowledge about their disease condition.
