Antibiotic overuse and the increase in bacteria resistant to these once-upon-a-time novel medications is one of the biggest health threats we face today.
Chronic infections can be resistant to even the best natural and integrative antimicrobial protocols. While you have not heard of them, biofilms are at the root. Read on to find out how we can beat biofilm-producing infections with natural therapies.
Antibiotic resistance draws the headlines, but don't ignore the annihilation of beneficial microbes in your gastrointestinal tract every time you take antibiotics. Discover what you can do to avoid the gut flora carnage.
The bees are dying, climate change is swerving out of control, there's a lot of political unrest, which screams nuclear war, and so many other issues... Are we on the verge of human extinction?
Superbugs (MRSA) are now responsible for more deaths than breast cancer. The antibiotic resistance is real and could have catastrophic results. It's time we look to natural antibiotics and other avenues to become our own health advocates.
From farm to fork, cattle are fed junk food (and much worse) to fatten bottom lines at the expense of our health. Critics warn of mad cow, E. coli, and obesity-related illnesses.
Thanks to antibiotics, we’ve cured and managed previously fatal diseases like HIV, pneumonia, and tuberculosis. But what happens when antibiotic resistant bacteria cases pop up that even the best antibiotics and well-equipped labs can't cure?
Pathogenic bacteria are smarter than we thought. Just ask them. They are now proliferating due in part to their odd but effective chemical chit chat called quorum sensing. Researchers are scrambling for a way to silence them.
Misuse, misinformation, and lack of coordination have put a pin in the golden age of antibiotics; now world governments want to do something, but is it too little too late, and were antibiotics ever the best solution in the first place?
It’s taken two decades of warnings, but health officials finally concede the golden age of miracle drugs has come to an end and the future may not be pretty.
A pertri-dish study shows a group of bacteria evolving to become antibiotic resistant superbugs. What we do with this information is vital.
