Antibiotics have changed our world, no doubt about it! They have saved people from illnesses that used to kill people and they certainly have their place in modern medicine. But they are HIGHLY overused!

Why do we avoid antibiotics?

  1. Antibiotics wreck your gut which holds over 80% of your immune system. One round can tank your immune system and put you on a vicious cycle.
  2. Some have severe side effects. They are so severe that they contain an FDA black box warning on their packaging and patient inserts that state that these drugs can cause tendon damage and permanent peripheral neuropathy. But who would connect the 2, right? 🤦🏻‍♀️
  3. Certain bacteria are resistant to antibiotics, and the widespread overuse of antibiotics has already led to the development of drug-resistant harmful bacteria. You may already have heard of the difficult-to-treat and dangerous methicillin-resistant staph aureus (MRSA). When you use antibiotics for every little minor illness, the bacteria in your body build a resistance to them, increasing the likelihood of them not working when you have a serious illness and legitimately need them later on.
  4. Yeast infections! When you take an antibiotic it does not just kill off the “bad” bacteria that you want to target. It also kills off the “good” or beneficial bacteria, yeasts, and microflora present in your gut.
  5. Diarrhea due to killing off of the good & beneficial gut bacteria.
  6. Using antibiotics more than 10 times in childhood increases the likelihood of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL)

Also, let’s consider all the viral sore throats and ear infections as well! It’s not always a bacterial infection!

Need some alternatives?

We NEVER use systemic antibiotics for a local infection! Here is what we do:

  1. Ear Infections: You can make garlic tea tree oil or you can order Mullein Garlic drops.
  2. Sinus infections are eradicated quickly with colloidal silver nasal spray. Sovereign Silver has a great one.
  3. STREP! Colloidal silver spray with tea tree & thieves oil works wonders! No need for antibiotics for that either! 🤷‍♀️
