Unstoppable—without antibiotics, even infections from simple cuts and scratches can escalate dramatically. Alarm bells are ringing around the world. The public is going to be sitting ducks to a plague of antibiotic resistant infections, which are now starting to sweep around the globe. Doctors and patients alike now need to put their attention on Natural Allopathic Medicine’s protocol for treating infections.
The mainstream media reports it like this: “The rise of the superbug is happening right now — and our last defense has just begun to collapse. The world is on the brink of an antibiotic apocalypse. A new dark age of medicine looms. The world of our great-grandparents may be about to return. It’s a world where one in every 200 mothers died after childbirth because of infection. It’s a world where one in nine people who suffered an infected cut or scrape sickened, and died. But that’s not all. Got a sore throat? It could lead to a heart attack. What about a funny tummy? Dehydration. Then death.”
Recently researchers from several Chinese, British and US universities announced in the journalLancet Infectious Diseasesthat they have identified a new form of resistance, to the very last-ditch drug colistin—and that it is present in both meat animals and people,probably comes from agricultural use of that drug, can move easily among bacteria, and may already be spreading across borders. Danish researchers fear the untreatable superbug is now firmly embedded in Europe.
Colistin, medicine’s last line antibiotic is crumbling. It is being defeated. The New Scientist writes, “The last drug has fallen. Bacteria carrying a gene that allows them to resist polymyxins, the antibiotics of last resort for some kinds of infection, have been found in Denmark and China, prompting a global search for the gene. The discovery means that gram-negative bacteria, which cause common gut, urinary and blood infections in humans, can now become “pan-resistant”, with genes that defeat all antibiotics now available.”
What are we going to say to the millions of people in the near future who die from infections that there is no medicine to treat? Modern medicine and factory farming have come together to create a nightmare that is just starting.
Professor Timothy Walsh of the University of Cardiff, told the BBC News that the discovery of MCR-1 means that the use of antibiotics will soon become obsolete. "If MRC-1 becomes global, which is a case of when not if, and the gene aligns itself with other antibiotic resistance genes, which is inevitable, then we will have very likely reached the start of the post-antibiotic era," he said. "At that point if a patient is seriously ill, say with E. Coli, then there is virtually nothing you can do."
Scientific American is warning us about the impact for children. "Infants and children are affected by antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the food supply, direct contact with animals, and exposure in the environment, the researchers report. For most infections, incidence was highest among children under age five, according to data the researchers cited from Center for Disease Control and Prevention's Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network. Pediatricians and parents can help combat antibiotic resistance by avoiding use of antibiotics to treat colds or other viral illnesses. Parents and other consumers may also help discourage the use of antibiotics in livestock feed by choosing to buy only organic products or foods labeled as 'raised without antibiotics,' said Urvashi Rangan, executive director of the Consumer Reports Food Safety and Sustainability Center."
It is a combination approach—attacking the infection—from every side. Pull the rug violently from under infectious agents with sodium bicarbonate, which will change the pH landscape violently. Attack head on with massive amounts of iodine, which kills everything in its path except healthy cells. Mediate and strengthen all physiological processes, including the immune system, with magnesium and infrared light. In addition, control any cytokine storms with large amounts of selenium of a nontoxic type. Add the sun or high levels of vitamin D and C and one has a new treatment paradigm for the rough future antibiotic resistant infections will bring.
Antibiotics were never a good idea. Fluoroquinolones are the worst antibiotics, are among the most dangerous drugs on the market, and should be avoided without question. Despite their dangers, fluoroquinolones are the most commonly prescribed class of antibiotics in the United States. No other antibiotic carries as high a potential to cause serious, permanent injuries and even death, as the fluoroquinolones do. There are many new ideas like nano gel that might even help doctors get a handle on antibiotic resistant TB. We do not need to despair as antibiotic resistant bacteria appear in daily life but millions will die if doctors, medical organizations and the government refuse to look at safe already proven alternatives.
