nobody needs antibiotics
I’d seen homeopaths in the 90s who hadn’t helped my issues. I didn’t know enough about it to understand that like brands of anything, one homeopath will be better for you than another. And though I’d taken my mom to see homeopaths 20 years later, I still didn’t realize I could search for homeopathic help and self-help online: I thought it was something you needed a specialist for, in the same way you wouldn’t try drilling your own teeth or re-packing your car’s wheel bearings.
I write to help others find the answers I wish I’d have found when we needed them. Joette has a big site with a lot of good ideas for self care and family care. This post will help you avoid the spiral of illness caused by toxic, ineffective drugs. I’ll quote some of her article and leave a link to the rest:
“Last week, I mentioned that one of the problems I see repeatedly is antibiotic use leading to recurring infections. This week, I focus on a recurring infection that is all too familiar to many women: The UTI-from-Hell that keeps coming back time after time.
Jean started getting recurring urinary tract infections in her twenties, soon after she got married, and she seemed to get another one almost every two months.Over the first 6 months, the antibiotics cleared them up quickly. But, after three or four UTIs, the “mild” antibiotics stopped working and Jean had to resort to stronger drugs such as Cipro and Levaquin.
However, those antibiotics come with serious warnings from the FDA. Within about a year, Jean developed pain in her legs and feet. It took years before she made the connection, even after meeting with her OBGYN, that this was called neuropathy and tendonitis.
If Jean (or her doctor) had read the warning labels on the insert, she (they) might have understood the cause of these conditions, but Jean trusted her doctor and his assumed attention to detail. After all, these were the tools of his trade.
Fatigue, bloating, and yeast infections were merely the first conditions she suffered during that initial year and in fact, when she looked back, she concluded she hadn’t been well since her original UTI. ( … ) Jean’s health and emotional state were a mess. Because of antibiotics.
If only Jean had been aware of natural, effective homeopathic medicines that have been known for centuries for their ability to uproot urinary tract infections without side effects and antibiotic fallout!
As I have said before, reserve the use of antibiotics for truly life-threatening conditions. (That is, if you don’t know what to do homeopathically.) And this isn’t just my opinion. Read this:
“… Serious side effects associated with fluoroquinolone antibacterial drugs generally outweigh the benefits for patients with acute sinusitis, acute bronchitis, and uncomplicated urinary tract infections who have other treatment options. For patients with these conditions, fluoroquinolones should be reserved for those who do not have alternative treatment options.” Who said that? The FDA!
