Deadly superbugs are evolving across U.S. hospitals... Chemical medicine has NO answers (but natural medicine does!)


(NaturalNews) Superbugs are slowly taking over our world. Unless we take action, common infections could turn into unstoppable killers. Some experts claim that drug-resistant bacteria may end up being deadlier than cancer when all antibiotics start to fail.

Each year, 23,000 Americans die from infections caused by superbugs. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the estimated global annual mortality rate is 700,000. If this trend continues, by 2050, long forgotten diseases will strike back in full force, and an estimated 10 million people worldwide will die each year.

New antibiotics are not the answer

A recent study, published by the District of Columbia Hospital Association (DCHA), showed that drug-resistant superbugs are very present in hospitals and healthcare facilities. Of the patients tested, 5.1 percent were infected with the deadly, drug-resistant superbug carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE).

DCHA chief operating officer Jo Ann Nelson, MD, noted that while the result of their study wasn't a surprise, it provided a necessary starting point for planning how to combat problematic superbugs such as CRE.

Antibiotic resistance is becoming a global threat to us all. This risk could lead to the end of modern medicine as we know it, which is entirely reliant on the effectiveness of antibiotics. Whenever they find a new strain of superbug, Big Parma simply comes up with a new group of antibiotics that seems to do the job for a while.

Chemical medicine, however, has no real long-term answer to combating these deadly superbugs. Scientists are increasingly turning back to nature to find answers to the growing problem. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies keep dominating our healthcare system, and cheap, natural remedies, such as colloidal silver, essential oils and plant-based antibiotics, are pushed aside.

If our antibiotic use does not become more responsible in the coming years, they will eventually become useless. Simple surgical procedures and common infections could become killers once again. If we want to combat this deadly enemy, then we need to turn our back on chemical antibiotics, as they will only make things worse, and give rise to new superbugs.

Natural medicine saves lives

Natural remedies are less expensive, don't cause damage, and are often more effective. Natural antibiotics consist of hundreds, if not thousands, of natural compounds that all work together to fight infection and strengthen the immune system, whereas their chemical counterparts usually only contain one active compound.

Armed with a multitude of components, it is more challenging for bacteria to develop resistance to these natural antibiotics, making them the better choice to treat and combat superbugs.

Colloidal silver, once used to deal with the growth of algae, bacteria and other unwanted organisms, had to make room for "modern" antibiotics in the 1940s. Ever since then, the efficiency of colloidal silver to treat bacterial infections and superbugs such as the deadly methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been discredited by the government, under pressure from the pharmaceutical industry.

Tea tree essential oil, among many other natural oils, has shown some promising results. Tea tree oil is an extract of a plant native to Australia. Clinical studies, however few, indicate that tea tree oil is as effective at killing MRSA as traditional treatment with the antibiotic mupirocin.

Garlic, another wonder of nature, has proven to be very useful in the treatment of MRSA and other bacterial infections. It consists of 27 know active ingredients, as well as dozens of additional compounds to strengthen the immune system and boost our ability to kill bacteria and other disease-causing intruders.

Although these studies are promising, and natural remedies have proven their effectiveness down through the years, more research needs to be done in order to convince the scientific and medical world.

Far too many resources go into the development of new chemical compounds, or the improvement of existing drugs, when all the while the answer is hiding in our cupboards.
