Infections

We are all familiar with the word Infections...we can spell it and most importantly we share the common experience of this malady. Whether it is a runny nose, cough, sore throat or upset tummy with nausea/vomiting or running loose at the stools...we all know about infections. The textbook definition is...Invasion by and multiplication of pathogenic microorganisms in a bodily part or tissue, which may produce subsequent tissue injury and progress to overt disease through a variety of cellular or toxic mechanisms. Our personal definition is...this sucks!

Since we all know what infection is...the most important factor is how do we prevent it and how do we best treat it when we share in this common human experience?

All too often the treatment is one of the current favorite top 5 Antibiotic's. We are just beginning to realize the error in our medical judgment and thinking process of using antibiotics for all occasions of infections. There are now antibiotic resistant infections that are seriously deadly like the MRSA and flesh eating bacteria. In fact there is only one antibiotic left that presently seems to have no bacteria that are resistant to it and it is called Vancomycin. If we have to continue using it very often then it also will become ineffective for some bacteria and look out below when that happens!

Can we change the trajectory of this infection armageddon? Yes and we do it by reserving antibiotics for only serious bacterial infections. We stop prescribing and taking it for colds and sinus congestions and the flu. Instead we use immune supporting botanical medicines like ecchinacea, goldenseal, arabinogalactans, mushroom extracts, glandular concentrates of thymus, adrenal and spleen; Vitamin C and Vitamin D. We change our lifestyle having more fun and moving our bodies while eating a more wholesome and naturally low inflammatory diet.

If we truly do need an antibiotic we take a high quality pro-biotic with saccharomyces boullardii to replace good bacteria and prevent the overgrowth of yeast and a chronic fungal infection which is the source of 98% of chronic sinus conditions.
