The Tale of Antibiotics

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Antibiotics were “born” when Sire Alexander Fleming discovered Penicillium in 1928.
It became a wonder drug.
It killed the bad bacteria – and also the good.
Then antibiotics began showing up in our food-milk and meat.
Now agriculture accounts for about 80% of all antibiotics used in the U.S. Every year 24.6 million pounds for purposes other than fighting disease.
It makes cows grow bigger and faster.

Now we learn that bacteria are intelligent. They can change and become resistant to antibiotics.

There is a simple answer to this problem of super bacteria resistant to antibiotics.
1) a multi-strain probiotic
2) eat real food
3) eat probiotic rich food

Let’s take antibiotics out of the food chain.

Your Gut

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

Dr. Alejandro Junger, in 1998, realized that scientists noticed that all chronic diseases had one thing in common: inflammation. The chain is before chronic disease, there is inflammation; but before inflammation comes dysfunction.
For years I have been fighting inflammation but until now I never got to the source of my problem – your gut.
Everything goes back to gut dysfunction. Clean your gut and most chronic diseases will disappear. Sounds easy! But your gut didn’t get injured in a day and will not clear up in a day.
For two weeks now I have been cleaning out the inflammation in my body through treatments. I’ll go into more detail in the future.

Unfortunately the medical world is set up to see what’s ailing the patient now and then to give drugs and anti-bodies.

If you want to eliminate disease get to the root of the problem – your gut.

When Dr. Junger talks about the gut he refers to more than just the body’s digestive system. He talks about the living organisms inside the gut, the intestinal flora, and the immune and nervous systems around the walls of the intestines.

Dr. Junger’s contends that if you learn how your gut works and understand how to repair it and keep it clean, your life will be healthier and your life more vibrant.

Antibiotics Destroy Good Bacteria

Friday, April 25th, 2014

One thing doctors don’t usually tell you is that antibiotics destroy bacteria – good as well as bad.And antacids and acid blockers interfere with normal digestion.
There are times when we need an antibiotic but living on them makes it almost impossible for the body to be normal. So if you are having abnormal problems check with your doctor to see what is really necessary.

Animal Products Kill More People Than Tobacco

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Recent studies show that more people are dying from heart disease, cancer, and stroke related to excessive animal product consumption.

Pumping animals with antibiotics, feeding them GMO foods, and foods filled with herbicides are bringing the poisons right into human consumption.

There is a better way. Vegetarians have a much lower rate of these diseases and are much less likely to be obese.

You are what you eat. A trite saying but true.

Love You Gut

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Probiotic bacteria are good for your gut. But most of the time we just hear about anti-biotic. Whenever antibiotics are taken it kills all bacteria in the system. This means the probiotics, the good bacteria along with the bad bacteria.

There are literally trillions of bacteria in your body that are good for you. They live in your gut, mouth and vagina. These bacteria live in a complex equilibrium with other bacteria and help keep the harmful ones from growing. They may also aid your digestion and improve your absorption of nutrients. They can improve your immune function.

But there are forces that throw off this delicate balance. Some of these are aging, alcohol, poor diet, stress, chronic illness and particularly antibiotics. Antibiotics kill the good as well as the bad bacteria Adding probiotics to your diet either in food or supplementation can restore your normal balance.

Remember when you do have to take an antibiotic but sure to take a probiotic afterwards to help restore your body to its proper functioning.

Antibiotics Kill All Bacteria – Bad & Good

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

Dr. Byran Richards, Wellness Resources, writes

An article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal shows that individuals on calcium channel blocker blood pressure medication who then take a macrolide antibiotic to fight an infection can experience low blood pressure that increases their risk of falling and breaking bones or winds them up in the hospital.  The antibiotics poison a liver enzyme system that so that it is unable to clear the toxic substance that is politely referred to as a blood pressure medication, in turn causing levels of the calcium channel blocker to elevate resulting in a medical emergency from toxic drug induced low blood pressure.

The problem is significant as there were 90 million prescriptions for calcium channel blockers in 2008 (Norvasc, Procardia, Plendil, Adalat, Cardizem, Dilacor and Tiazac) and 66 million prescriptions for macrolide antibiotics in the same year.  The problematic ones are erythromycin and clarithromycin, but not azithromycin.

Antibiotics are not wonder drugs, they are poisons which poison your liver and seriously alter your digestive health in a way that induces metabolic problems and eventual disease down the road.  Their rampant overuse for decades has induced superbugs that threaten the health of a nation.
