There is currently an over-prescribing by the modern healthcare industry of today’s antibiotics which is rendering them increasingly less effective. Contributing to this trend is the use of antibiotics in factory-farm livestock.
When he received his Nobel Prize for medicine in 1945, Alexander Fleming, the pioneer of penicillin, the first synthetic antibiotic, said, “It is not difficult to make microbes resistant to penicillin in the laboratory by exposing them to concentrations not sufficient to kill them.” He continued by saying, “There is the danger that the ignorant man may easily underdose himself and by exposing his microbes to non-lethal quantities of the drug make them resistant.”
Bacter is a part of life and it has been throughout history. When we take antibiotics persistently, we kill the “good” bacteria, which gives rise to more resistent “superbugs”. In the event that you need to kill a superbug, below are 10 herbs and foods that can cure the issue:
Honey: A recent study from Salve Regina University showed that raw honey is a top natural antibiotic. In her findings, Dr. Susan M. Meschewitz told the 247th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, “The unique property of honey lies in its ability to fight infection on multiple levels, making it more difficult for bacteria to develop resistance.” The honey fights as an antibiotic using polyphenols, hydrogen peroxide and an osmotic effect. The fact is that honey has many different characteristics which make it a powerful cure for superbugs.
Colloidal Silver: Author Gregory A Gore writes in his book, Defeat Cancer:
Silver was used 1,200 years ago by Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, sailors, and then by the pioneers who populated our country. They used it for various illnesses and to keep their foods and liquids from spoiling. Prior to 1938, before antibiotics, colloidal silver was used by doctors as their main substance to fight bacteria in a more natural way than through the antibiotics they use today. Antibiotics can harm our kidneys and liver functions. Colloidal silver promotes healing.
