Antibiotics Overuse (BAD NOW) Could End in Disaster

Antibiotics Overuse Could End in Disaster Posted: 04 Mar 2013 Antibiotics overuse could spell disaster in the form of a massive outbreak of a “SUPER-BUGS” – a bacterium or group of bacteria that has developed resistance to all known antibiotics and against which there is no known defense. Drug-resistant bacterial strains are growing worldwide, such as this strain of TB (tuberculosis) as reported by this study in the Lancet. The issue is that a dose of antibiotics is the easy solution (too easy) to any bacterial disease. It may be warranted in extreme cases, but in general Western doctors have lapsed into overprescribing them, possibly out of laziness, possibly out of ignorance and possibly out of bribery (Western doctors are routinely bribed by Big Pharma reps and given kickbacks to prescribe certain drugs). Far too often, using antibiotics is like using a sledge hammer to kill a mosquito, and as the saying goes, ”if the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see all problems as nails.” Antibiotics wipe out all bacteria, good or bad, and destroy delicate balance of a body’s ecosystem. Your immune system is constantly on a seek-and-destroy mission status - on the lookout for foreign invaders, naturally occurring cell defects and mutant cells. The immune system has a vast capacity to remember bad guys and deploy tactics that worked in the past to annihilate the enemy. Some of the fastest growing cells in the human body are immune cells. Over 80% of the body's immunity is built in the intestinal tract by the friendly bacteria balance that resides there. The intestinal flora starts building in an infant while in the womb but doesn't really take off until after eight days of age. Starting with the colostrum milk, the gut begins to populate with more bacteria while the infant's immune system starts an inventory of good and bad cells in the body. This inventory is a life-long process and the immune system never forgets an invader. Please refer to my previous article HOW ANTIBIOTICS DESTROY YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM to understand how antibiotics destroy our immune system. Allopathy (Western medicine) does not train its doctors to look at the body as holistically as other medical traditions do, such as Chinese medicine, naturopathy or homeopathy. It does not recognize the existence of prana, chi, ki, mana or the meridians that govern the flow of energy throughout the body and determine the state of health one enjoys. Western doctors (in general) are quite content to prescribe a drug which may solve a problem in part of the body, but contain side-effects which later manifest as disease in another part of the body. They then prescribe more drugs for that, and the cycle continues on and on, like a dog chasing its tail, with the initial imbalance simply moving to another part of the body and transforming into another disease. True health is a state of complete balance. The idea of “killing” a disease in one part of the body, only to have it resurface in another, is absolutely ludicrous to any true healer. What is the point of merely kicking the can down the road as antibiotics overuse does? And yet, due to the Rockefeller’s insidious influence, Western Medicine has formed an unholy alliance with Big Pharma, and the two have become so intertwined that now patients have become customers – and a patient healed is a customer lost to the giant pharmaceutical cartel. The Beginning of the End of Allopathy? In this excellent article David Stewart declares that we may be witnessing the end of allopathy as we know it. He states that “sooner or later, all synthetic drugs and antibiotics (will) become ineffective or lethal and have to be discontinued … patented medicines are all unnatural, composed of molecules never before existing on planet earth. Our bodies were not made to utilize, metabolize, and eliminate such substances. This is why all pharmaceuticals, without exception, have negative side effects.” He also indicates that allopathic drugs, including all antibiotics and synthetic pharmaceuticals, are already starting to become so ineffective and obsolete that drug companies will have to engage in endless research just to keep ahead of the curve – and there may be a limit to how long they can do this. Such is the flawed paradigm of allopathic synthetic drugs. Antibiotics overuse is a serious problem, not just because it may lead to the rise of a super-bug, but also due to fact that antibiotic drugs are toxic in and of themselves. This Natural News article highlighted the fact that there are countless injuries and side-effects caused by antibiotics, just as with vaccines, but with the difference being that vaccine victims have a support network, whereas antibiotic victims do not. The common fluoroquinolone antibiotics are popular, but the side effects are grave, ranging from the tearing of tendons, the crippling losses of motor abilities, difficulty thinking, tinnitus, anxiety, chronic insomnia and depression. 80% Antibiotics to Animals for food Think carefully before taking antibiotic drugs. Antibiotic overuse is rife. If you do need to, make sure you balance your system by taking probiotics for many weeks afterwards, as well as eating healthy fermented foods such as raw miso, sauerkraut and kefir, to help restore the healthy intestinal flora in your digestive tract.
