Description

This study examines the relationship between people’s general health and their health-maintenance practices, specifically, the use of over-the-counter medications (OTCs) and home remedies. These practices are used by many; however, there is still much uncertainty about how these impact one’s health. Subjects for this study are drawn from the Behavioral Sciences Research Participation Pool and will complete an adapted questionnaire taken from the Questionnaire to Document Self-Medicating Behaviours and the SF-36 Health Survey. My hypothesis is that one of these health-maintenance practices will have a stronger relationship with health than the other.
