Antibiotics Are FAILING! Here’s What to Do
In 1928, Alexander Fleming made one of the great medical discoveries of all time… he found penicillin growing in his lab.
Since then, antibiotics spread all over the world – and they’ve saved millions of lives.
But you know how this story ends, right?
You can’t turn on the TV or open a newspaper these days without seeing a story about “superbugs” and how antibiotics have stopped working… all due to overuse.
Many scientists agree: we are now in a very dangerous post-antibiotic era where even simple infections can turn deadly.
Here’s what you need to know to protect yourself and your loved ones.
Bacterial resistance is a natural process.
Every time we try to kill bad bacteria with drugs, there will always be a few that escape because they are immune to antibiotics.
Resistance to one type of antibiotic is no big deal — we have other antibiotics we can use.
But here is the problem: some bacteria become immune to two drugs, or three drugs, or four drugs…
Even crazier, we’ve recently learned that bacteria can “teach” their resistance to other bacteria.
Resistance to more than one drug has a name: Pan-Resistance–and it is a huge problem.
In 2013 Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control, said we need to use more caution with our antibiotics or we would soon be in the post-antibiotic era.
Well, it’s too late.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), two million people each year are infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria and at least 23,000 people die because of them.
People are dying because we have nothing left to treat them with (the superbugs are resistant to every antibiotic we have).
Pan-Resistant Super-Bugs invade our hospitals and don’t leave.
Maybe you have heard stories of people stubbing their toe, or getting a minor cut, and then dying because no antibiotic will stop infections from spreading throughout their bodies.
This will happen more people in the future. The CDC warns that as many as 10 million people may die from antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the next 30 years.
Don’t lose hope, though, there is much you can do to protect you and your family.
Let me show you:
Dr. Scott’s Natural Antibiotic Protection Plan
- Eat powerful plants – Garlic, onions, ginger and spices such as oregano and turmeric can give your immune system the support it needs to kill invading bacteria.
- Make sure you get enough vitamins – Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Vitamin A all have immune supporting properties.
- Gut/Immune connection – Maybe you have heard how closely tied your immune system is to your gut. Improve your gut health by taking a probiotic every day.
- Supercharge your immune system – Certain herbs, such as Goldenseal, echinacea, oregano oil, olive leaf extract, all help to give your immune system the boost it needs to protect your body.
The end of antibiotics is upon us.
If you are prepared and support your health, then you will have no need for them.
