Have Faith

Have You Missed Me?

It's been awhile since I have posted here and I apologize for the neglect of this blog…Life happens and I am in the process of moving information to another site as I update my website and get everything in one place.  My hope is that by doing this, it will be easier to maintain everything!  This one person show has to become more manageable!  That's the goal and what I am working toward.  Yay!  I am ready to be there!
Until then, bear with me and I will notify you when the new site is ready!

The Golden Age of Antibiotics is Over!     

Modern antibiotics are not just failing big time; they are DANGEROUS. Antibiotics can be lethal in their own right.

Did you know that antibiotics are the most common cause of death from acute liver failure? (acute means sudden and unforeseen; as opposed to "chronic", which everyone can see coming).

The truth, is statistics show that antibiotics are the single largest class of drugs that cause fatal liver damage.

Yes, antibiotics were the most common cause of death due to liver injury (45%). The next group, nervous system agents, were only 1/3rd as common (15%). That puts antibiotics way out on their own as deadly drugs.

Chief offenders are macrolides (erythromycin type), penicillins, clavulanic acid (Augmentin), tetracycline, and more.

I'm constantly amazed when I hear of colleagues prescribing erythromycin as a first line medicine for a sore throat. Don't they know how toxic this stuff is?

It had a bad reputation when I was in med school in the 1960s. Doesn't anybody pay attention? If it's to be used at all, it's in a life-threatening situation where penicillin’s and safer drugs have failed.

The bottom line is nobody should be thinking "antibiotics". We should be thinking of "alternatives". And here's the joke: there are 1,000s of viable alternatives. Hundreds of them work as well as antibiotics.

The Golden Age of Antibiotics is over. Bacteria have won the war, hands down, and that's the truth. We're all out of ammunition! The cupboard is bare.

Well, not quite. There are, as I said, hundreds of healthy, safe and EFFECTIVE alternative modalities of treatment. Herbs, herbal supplements and eating healthy foods are just a couple of starters!

Here's to the new era of safe alternatives!!
