Our body is inhabited by bacteria in the digestive tract, mucous membranes of the nose, on the skin, on the genitals. We live in symbiosis with “good” bacteria, which help us digest food, synthesize vitamins, regulate skin pH and vaginal mucous membranes. In case of injuries, intake of strong antibiotics, immunity, bacteria get the chance to reproduce. If an organism is not capable of reacting in an adequate way and preventing bacteria from spreading, the development of the infection develops. Then the inflammatory process develops, as an organism’s response to the infection. Antibiotic therapy destroys both good and bad bacteria, and after the end of taking antibiotics, hyper infection develops (infections caused by bacteria that are resistant to the applied antibiotic) or fungal infections. Today, it is already a practice in order to prevent the complications of taking antibiotics in children, simultaneous application of probiotic bacteria – good bacteria (taken 2 hours after antibiotic) – and for women to use antifungal vaginal preparations to prevent the development of vaginal candidacies.
In the case of bacterial infections, a double approach should be applied: antimicrobial preparation prevent the further development of the infection and strengthen the immune system, which failed to deal with the infection. In the case that only an infection is treated, the organism is weak and unprotected after the therapy, so soon another infection can be develop. Garlic is in the nation gained a reputation to defend against witches and vampires. It owes this reputation to components that have: antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal effect. Propolis, royal jelly and other bee products contain natural anxiety that the bees create to protect their hive from bacteria. Echinacea is a natural antibiotic, it has anti-inflammatory effect and influences the increase of the number of interferon’s, which are responsible for immune response in viral infection.
The use of antibiotics can lead to the destruction of the normal bacterial flora in the organism, thus opening the possibility for the development of pathogenic bacteria and fungi (candidacies of the intestine, vagina). It is useful to use probiotics (Probiotic, Linex, and Prolife) of probiotic bacteria culture that should settle the intestines and thus prevent the development of pathogenic bacteria that “survive” antibiotic therapy. Yogurt is a good source of probiotic bacteria, but it is necessary to take into account that probiotics are taken at least two hours after antibiotics.
Escherichia coli is a bacteria that often occurs as a cause of many infections in the urinary tract. It is most often
treated with antibiotics, but it can be returned very soon after treatment. The problem with the Escherichia is that is resistant to many antibiotics, and in addition it has a specific lifestyle, so it can survive in the bladder wall and under the strongest antibiotics. In its extermination are used: cranberry, taheebo and garlic.
HOW TO PREVENT DEVELOPMENT OF RESISTANCE TO ANTIBIOTICS?
Selecting antibiotics for therapy
- Based on experience – Based on experience, the doctor knows which bacteria most often cause infections of certain organs (this is a method used by doctors, if they do not take a swab).
- Making antibiotics – take a swab, develop bacterial cultures, put tablets of different antibiotics and monitor around which tablets bacteria are destroyed, in which diameter, and if there are resistant strains.
Propolis – a natural antibiotic approved by the WHO, shows antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties without side effects and even has success in treating resistant strains of bacteria. It contains phytotonizides, immunological factors that are considered to give the body a natural resistance.
- Garlic has been used since ancient times in folk medicine to fight infections, and its effectiveness has been confirmed against many bacteria, fungi and viruses. It contains alicin, which has proven to be effective and against bacteria that have already become resistant to antibiotics.
- Echinacea – a natural antibiotic activates the immune system in the production of defense cells in response to bacterial and viral infections.
- Colloidal silver – a natural antibiotic and disinfectant, destroying microorganisms without developing resistance.
- Numerous essential oils (sage, eucalyptus, fennel, anise, mint) contain antimicrobial components.
Natural remedies for bacterial infections:
- Natural antibiotics – garlic, propolis, royal jelly, colloidal silver
- Natural antiseptics – sage, basil, eucalyptus, pine, thyme,
- Immunostimulators – Echinacea, propolis, zinc, liver shark oil
