I don’t know about you, but this talk about antibiotic resistant bacteria scares me! I’m not against antibiotics or other phamaceuticals; I’m against the unnecessary and overuse of them.
Did you know that the unnecessary use of antibiotics can create more damage than you may realize? They can:
- weaken the body’s own natural immune system
- destroy our terrains (aka healthy gut) by killing off the good bacteria (if you’re actually fighting a virus, it’s killing far more good bacteria than bad)
- antibiotics often cause diarrhea symptoms, leading to dehydration, further weakening the body’s immune system just when it needs it most!
Talk about a cascade of trouble!
But above all, the scariest thing to me is MRSA. Once something I only heard about on the news, I’ve known three people in the past five years who have contracted it. Hearing their stories was enough of a wake-up call to inspire me to read about the natural alternatives available and the importance of the responsible use of antibiotics.
