Too often, when you go to the doctor with a disease, such as a cold or flu, or even a minor infection, you are prescribed a prescription for an antibiotic.
It has almost become a common practice.
there are certainly times when an antibiotic is needed, excessive use of these drugs becomes a major problem.
Did you know that every time you take an antibiotic, not only does your body build a resistance to it, but also the many bacteria that survive the drug create a resistance?
In the face of an antibiotic attack, the bacteria change (move) in a way, either to protect themselves from the drug or to neutralize it.
Any surviving bacterium multiplies and may even transmit their resistant properties to other bacteria.
Although it is completely natural for bacteria to develop resistance to a drug (this is how they survive), excessive use of antibiotics drastically affects the rate at which they do so and the extent to which this resistance occurs.
Antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria in the gut
The other problem is that every time you take an antibiotic, you are essentially killing the good bacteria in your system.
Your body needs healthy bacteria to function properly and eliminate toxins.
Without these good bacteria, you ironically become susceptible to all sorts of problems
Many doctors will now tell you that if you are taking an antibiotic, you should also take a probiotic to counteract the damage caused by the antibiotic. But it’s not that simple.
An added problem
What you may not know is that even if you do not take antibiotics regularly, you are subject to them in the meat (beef, poultry and pork) that you eat and even in milk and other dairy products.
which you consume.
Currently, the beef industry accounts for 70% of antibiotic use in the United States! This means that only 30% of the antibiotic used is for medical reasons.
The big drug companies that sell antibiotics to farmers say they are needed to keep the animals healthy, but the truth is that the only ones that benefit are the drug companies themselves – certainly not the animals that are full of these drugs, nor the farmer who has to pay for these pills. or for you, who are forced to digest these
The reality of antibiotic abuse
The end result of using antibiotics is terrifying.
As the bacteria become stronger and no longer resistant to antibiotics, these once life-saving drugs will be of no help.
What can you do?
There are several things you can actually do to improve your own health and alleviate the overuse of antibiotics, which will benefit everyone in the long run:
- Buy organic meat and dairy as much as possible
- Take an antibiotic only when absolutely necessary (many doctors are aware of this problem – find a doctor who will prescribe antibiotics only when necessary).
- Improve and build your immune system naturally
- Look for natural alternatives to antibiotics (obviously if the infection does not improve, see your doctor)
Essential oils as an alternative to antibiotics
Nature can give you everything you need to live and stay healthy. Almost every traditional medicine was originally made with a natural ingredient that was then chemically modified to create the medicine.
While pharmacology now uses many other chemicals, today at least 120 known drugs still contain chemicals that are derived from plants, including: codeine, digitalis (for heart patients), ephedrine (Sudafed), aspirin, and even morphine. .
And essential oils are made from plants that have these healing properties, as well as other uses, such as natural cleansers without chemicals and pesticides and natural cosmetics and other beauty products.
