Are Antibiotics Killing Us?

The global abuse of antibiotics and the rise of drug-resistant superbugs have become an urgent issue of survival for the human race, and even mainstream medical experts are now describing microbiological doomsday scenarios if the situation isn’t reversed. As The Guardian reported:

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria with the potential to cause untreatable infections pose “a catastrophic threat” to the population, the chief medical officer for Britain warns in a report calling for urgent action worldwide.

It is common to see many people resorting to pop antibiotics at the drop of a hat. Be it a cold or a simple fever, people are waiting to drug themselves as a reflex action!

How did it get this bad?

After Big Pharma polluted the medical landscape with a flood of antibiotics that caused drug-resistant strains to emerge, it has since abandoned any new research on antibiotics, claiming “there’s no profit in it.”

The antibiotics pipeline is empty. But drug-resistant bacteria aren’t asleep at the wheel; they’re rapidly mutating, developing new biological defenses against Big Pharma’s drugs. With each passing month, the superbugs get stronger.
Even if it were profitable to develop new antibiotics, it’s a losing game anyway because a drug that takes 10 years to develop can become useless in as little as one year in the real world. That’s thanks to the rapid mutation capabilities of gut bacteria.

The net result is that the western medical system that was built on chemicals as the weapons of war against disease has run out of chemicals to fight superbugs. The “end game” of modern medicine is upon us, and the drug industry openly admits it’s not even working on solutions to this problem.

The best way to deal with these super bugs and retain good bacteria in our body is by adopting AYURVEDA:
The Ayurvedic approach is to maintain balance and the immune system at peak efficiency so that infections and various inflammations seldom manifest. If there is a lapse in balance, then rebalance and specific herbal treatments may be necessary to bring the body back to health. To stay healthy, the five basic elements of the Universe (Air, Water, Fire, Earth and Ether) need to remain balanced and in harmony within the body. Most illnesses arise because of the imbalance of any one or two of the Tridoshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha), which leads to malfunction of the internal organs. Although Ayurveda acknowledges that germs spread infective diseases, the treatment is based on the system of Tridoshas. Ayurveda does not work by mass killing all the cells or microbes like antibiotics do but instead it strengthens the body’s immune system to fight disease or infection. So the target is specific and most effective!
