How You Can Help Stop the Spread of Antibiotic-Resistant Disease

In light of the growing problem of antibiotic-resistant disease, it would be wise to employ techniques and strategies that will not only reduce your own risk of falling victim but also help curtail the spread of antibiotic resistance in general. While the problem of antibiotic resistance really needs to be stemmed from the public at a nationwide level, the more people who get involved on a personal level, the better. Such strategies include:


✓ Using antibiotics only when absolutely necessary

For example, antibiotics are typically unnecessary for most ear infections, and they do NOT work on viruses. They only work on bacterial infections, and even then, they're best reserved for more serious infections.


Taking an antibiotic unnecessarily will kill off your beneficial gut bacteria for no reason at all, which could actually make it more difficult for you to recover from your illness. If you do take a course of antibiotics, be sure to reseed your gut with healthy bacteria, either by eating fermented foods or taking a high-quality probiotic.


As an all-around preventive measure, make sure your vitamin D level is optimized year-round, especially during pregnancy, along with vitamin K2. A number of other natural compounds can also help boost your immune system function to help rid you of an infection, including vitamin C, oil of oregano, garlic, Echinacea and tea tree oil.


High-quality colloidal silver may be a valuable addition to your medicine cabinet to treat cuts and scrapes in lieu of antibacterial creams. Colloidal silver has been regarded as an effective natural antibiotic for centuries, and research shows it can even be helpful against some antibiotic-resistant pathogens.12,13,14


Manuka honey can also be used for topical applications. Clinical trials have found that Manuka honey can effectively eradicate more than 250 clinical strains of bacteria, including some resistant varieties, such as MRSA.


✓ Avoiding antibacterial household products

This includes items such as antibacterial soaps, hand sanitizers and wipes, as these too promote antibiotic resistance.

Tho any will be using antiseptic wipes during flu and virus season.


✓ Properly washing your hands with warm water and plain soap, to prevent the spreading of bacteria


Be particularly mindful of washing your hands and kitchen surfaces after handling raw meats, as about half of all meat sold in grocery stores around the U.S. is likely to be contaminated with potentially dangerous bacteria.


✓ Purchasing organic, antibiotic-free meats and other foods

Reducing the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is a significant reason for making sure you're only eating grass-fed, organically raised meats and animal products. Besides growing and raising your own, buying your food from responsible, high-quality, and sustainable sources is your best bet, and I strongly encourage you to support the small family farms in your area.


* Geri's note added

When farmer's markets are in full swing the fresh produce from local farmers' markets is a boost to your healthy diet.

During winter months there are some farmers markets around..google to find out where.


It seems we are in an age of the 'quick fix'..and have been led to believe antibiotics are the answer to most that ails us...is this too much of a good thing or the easy way for that so-called quick fix!...

Listening to, and being aware of what our bodies are telling us should be the first avenue of self-healing.   Try a natural way and yes, some of those old fashioned remedies your parents or grandparents used.  I remember my grandmother using a poultice of softened Fels Naptha soap and a green leave from the garden to wrap a cut on my finger that was getting infected..and YUP...it worked!  I'm not talking about the old snake oil days, but there are many practical and natural ways to help our bodies heal from the inside and outside.


Beware of the doom-sayers regarding the Coronavirus.

Did you know ...that...FEAR ...itself can lower your immune system. precautions, such as frequent hand washings to the tune of singing happy birthday twice is the time we should take in washing our hands.  Stay home !  keep a distance of 6 feet of others if you must go out..work with the guidelines to help curb this virus.. Keep the faith, pray...

Pray for those that are sick


To your good health and remember God is with us always.


"This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it"   ~~Psalm 118:24
