This is a disaster waiting to happen and when it does, it could be catastrophic.
Someone carrying a disease can get on an airplane and pass it on to everyone on
the plane. These people then infect others as they go on to their different
destinations. The problems is compounded because so much of the world is
overcrowded increasing the number of human contacts. If the incubation period is
just a few days, the disease could be world wide before medical professionals
are even aware that there is a problem. Then, how long will it take to develop
some kind of treatment--if a treatment can be found.Not only do
physicians need to be more restrained in prescribing antibiotics, but the
agriculture industry (dairy, chickens, hogs, etc.) administers antibiotics
without restraint. Bacteria developed in these animals can be easily passed to
humans.The film "Contagion" wasn't very well done but
the premise illustrated the problem we could be dealing with. Only, it would
probably be far worse.
Eat organic foods, don't eat suger or drink soda or eat at fast food
joints, drink lotsa of water and excersise and guess what, you don't need
antibiotics or a flu shot.My last dr visit to any Dr, this one
happened to be an IHC Dr. Was in 2006. He stated antibiotics only help 2/10
First of all, I personally do not trust the AMA. People need to do research
into them. They admit our military members are used for vaccine
experimentation, and also that they want to make it mandatory for all people to
be involved in vaccine trials. They also stuck up for post birth abortion,
killing a child, up to the age of 4. With that being said, I took chemical and
biological warfare for 12 years, and I watched MRSA, one of the most deadly
flesh eating drug resistant bacterias kill my Mother. I believe that these drug
resistant bacterias and viruses have been created in a laboratory, to be made
drug resistant. I will never forget when an ointment for MRSA was contaminated
with MRSA and taken off the market. Our food and water now has MRSA in it. Do
some research on this. Being as vaccine are biological blood products, mixing
different species blood and diseases into us, I believe that has created an
entire host of diseases, including drug resistant diseases. The same thing with
genetically modified foods, inserting DNA from other species. We are not
talking about cross breeding.
We get the government and ambulance chasing lawyers out of the way and allow
private pharm companies to invent new antibiotics and allow them a profit
incentive to do so! No profit, no research, no research, no new discoveries.
And to top it off, we're stuck with ObamaCare.
The easiest way to slow antibiotic resistance is to stop giving it to health
I have a board game called "Pandemic" -- I thought it was based on
fiction... :)Even if medical advances cannot keep up with this
problem, at least we have the priesthood and the gift of healing we can depend
on. The scriptures also tell of devastating plagues as a sign of the second
coming of Christ, and I wonder if this problem may play a role in that.Stay true to the faith and stand in holy places.
It seems to me like we are asking the wrong question. The reason that we get
sick is not due to a lack of antibiotics... We get sick because of a compromised
immune system. We should be having the discussion about how do we boost the
immune system, then the "need" for antibiotics will decrease to the
point where they will be functional again. As long as we look outside the body
to create health we will continue to fight the loosing battle that our Health
Care System is fighting. The body knows how to heal itself...so give it what it
needs and most of the time it will function magnificently.
We should not allow the AMA and their parent industry of pharmaceutical
companies to proscribe the United States citizens of their right to have access
to all information about, and access to the natural herbs that are naturally
growing in our hemisphere.Colorado opened the door on this subject
with the legalization of a natural herb to all.Now, the each state
government using Colorado as a precedent should kick the door wide open by
outlawing the control of medicines by the big pharma/AMA monopoly.There would have been no need for the federal government mandating that the
people of the US have to purchase 'obamacare' insurance if the
overpriced and overrated big pharma/AMA monopoly had not created the expensive
@Northern: I would add to that getting sufficient sleep. I find that when I do
all of those things, I don't get sick--which is quite amazing because I
have a long history of getting sick rather easily otherwise. I am
also trying to grow more and more of my own food. Organic or otherwise, I know
I'm better off when I source food from from my own garden. We talk about
dependency on foreign oil, but being dependent on others for your food is
ultimately not a great position to be in either.
Northern and JT4:Antibiotics literally saved my life. I was a
healthy and active 38-year old who got slammed with bacterial pneumonia. While
healthy living is vital and too often overlooked, there are many normally
healthy people who would not be around today without the skilled use of
I believe in maintaining a healthy lifestyle but it is interesting that the
great influenza of 1918 killed the healthiest people first. On the other hand,
when I was in the army I worked at a medical lab and got very sick a couple of
times shortly after I started working there. Most the people who worked there
had the same experience. Then I didn't get a contagious disease again the
whole two years I was in the army and for several years after that. I think our
antibody titre from many small exposures was so high that our bodies would kill
of any invasive organisms before they had a chance to cause a disease. Maybe a nasal spray could be developed that has a lot of different killed
microorganisms. Then our bodies could naturally develop greater immunity through
regular use of the spray.
America is 5% of the world population and takes 80% of the prescription drugs.
Forest Gump had it right when he would ask; are you on any medications I should
know about. Keep your blood clean by pasteurizing [exercising], homogenizing
[sun shine vitamin D] and maintaining the Ph. should save a lot on pills.
Back in October and November, I had a sinus infection with serious pain and
swelling that would not go away through change of diet alone.I
started taking a natural antibiotic herb every two hours and was completely
healed of the pain and swelling symptoms of the sinus infection in just two
days.Whole plants that have natural antibiotics are sure miraculous.
What we need is a whole lot more of prudence, judgement and skill
using the potent whole plants/roots/leaves.We need more revelation
(D&C 89) and less regulation.The above revelation was very specific
about the tobacco plant.Can we have more inspiration, information and
scientific study about the use of other whole natural plants without AMA/big
I used to get infections easily. The doctor would prescribe antibiotics and I
would stop talking them as soon as the symptoms cleared up. I finally figured
out that you have to take the whole bottle even when you feel better. This
would keep me from getting sick again. Antibiotics work when used properly
