Drug resistance of bacteria is becoming an epidemic in this country and I am sure around many places in the world as antibiotics have been overly prescribed fo decades now.
But, I dont think it is only the bacteria that are becoming resistant, it is the people they are using them on. People are becoming resistant because they have had countless prescriptions given to them over the course of their lives and now-guess what-they don't work anymore!
Western medicine is at a point, sooner than I imagined, that they are starteing to see the changes in approach that need to be made. More and more reearch is being done on the use of probiotics and the impact the internal gut microbes are having on our immune systems.
Hopefully, this trend will continue and less focus will be placed upon drug companies enriching themselves on precription sales and more money will be focused on delivering good, responsible healthcare.
I have personally seen so many people's lives be negatively impacted by having been victimized by antibiotic overuse not knowing or understanding how devastating it would be. I myself, when young was one of those people and It definitely cahnged the course of my life. However, everyday is a new day. It is never too late to change the way you approach your health. It is not only the Western doctors and researchers that need to change their perspecitve, but, also the people they are treating/impacting. We need to change our expectations and as that demand changes, this will contribute to the shifting of tides in a braoder way.
Holistic medicines of many kinds encomapss the ability to tret the patient as well as "the bug". This is why we are not finding resistance as an issue. We treat the whole...isticly:) http://www.theguardian.com/science/2013/sep/16/cdc-drug-resistance-antib...
