Antibiotics aren’t always the answer

Antibiotics are being prescribed more and more often to treat illness. Unfortunately they are being used to treat viral infections, and other illnesses which are not bacterial in nature.

From the CDC:

Antibiotics do not fight infections caused by viruses like colds, most sore throats and bronchitis, and some ear infections. Unneeded antibiotics may lead to future antibiotic-resistant infections. Symptom relief might be the best treatment option.

Frequency of use has become a world wide problem resulting in antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. There are many reports of a future where overuse of antibiotics will cause a situation where they are no longer be effective.

As stated above, it can also diminish the body’s ability to respond to antibiotics. It makes sense to explore alternative treatments in place of antibiotics, saving them for emergencies.

Fortunately homeopathy is an ideal first line of defense. It’s non-toxic and aids the body’s natural ability to overcome illness.  Homeopathy has a proven track record for helping with viral complaints such as colds, sore throats, bronchitis and ear infections.  It also works for infections which are caused by bacteria. Homeopathy can help with upper respiratory tract infections, pharyngitis, bronchitis and many other common complaints.

Instead of going for antibiotics first, try a homeopathic remedy to relieve symptoms.
