Antibiotics, like many other drugs, are handed out by doctors as an end-all solution pill. Even for viral ailments doctors irresponsibly prescribe these pills as a solution. Unfortunately with all of the over-prescriptions and even necessary prescriptions, antibiotics have routinely been creating drug-resistant bacteria. Britain now seems to be facing their own massive increase in antibiotic-resistant blood poisoning caused by escherichia coli (E. coli).

Bugs and bacteria rapidly adapt to survive, only taking months to for the genetic mutations to occur. Antibiotics, although successful in wiping out most of the bacterial invaders, don’t kill absolutely all of them. Over time the bacteria which survive the antibiotics become resistant, and continue to reproduce, only now with a quirk in their genetic structure allowing them to survive.

The slow but problematic growth of resistant organisms are resulting in antibiotics being nearly useless. The Independent reports:

Using standard antibiotic regimens, there is a one in 10 chance that treatment of an E.coli infection will fail because the bug is resistant. But, as numbers of resistant infections rise, there will be increasing pressure to use more powerful antibiotics, called carbapenems, which are the last line available. And resistance to those is already emerging…The warnings follow increasing reports from Europe of patients with infections that are almost impossible to treat.

But should this be a problem, as antibiotics, even if used in higher doses, are still killing off the invading bacteria? Sadly antibiotics do not discriminate against beneficial and bad bacteria. These medical giveaways are virtually depleting your body of all beneficial bacteria, leading to numerous health complications due to poor gut flora.

Antibiotics, linked to skyrocketing mental illness rates, are being identified as a player in the soaring obesity rates around the globe. In one study regarding the depletion of ‘good’ bacteria in the gut, researchers explained how antibiotics administered to mice ultimately resulted in altered behaviors far beyond diarrhea and pain.

With the combination of health complications and resistant superbugs, it is any wonder why antibiotics are still being used excessively. The drugs, making up what we at NaturalSociety like to call the disease machine, are perpetuating diseases that the medical establishment views as impossible to treat. All the while, their overuse is costing the National Health Service the equivalent of over $10.5 million per year.

Luckily a number of powerful natural antibiotics exist that do not come with such harsh side effects. Honey, garlic, echinacea, goldenseal, wild indigo and various amino acids have been shown to reduce the need for antibiotics. In addition, strengthening the body’s natural defensive mechanisms with super supplements like turmeric or curcumin would be a wise choice.

    It is recommended by most of the doctors that don't take lots of antibiotics, which is harmful to our body and health. There are some people who take antibiotics even for small fever, without the prescription of doctor. The medical shop people should not provide antibiotics without the prescription of doctor.

    Antibiotics are well known to be powerful medicine. But the recent studies have revealed a danger that can get out of out of control. The scientists have found a possible threat of the possible ejection of diseases through antibiotics.
