The public has been given mixed messages about antibiotics. Many people have regular and sometimes constant courses prescribed. In many cases the benefits shouldn’t be questioned – these drugs save lives. However there are side-effects and the public needs to be warned. The author discusses:
the general picture, the issues (such as the highly topical ‘superbug’ – antibiotic resistant bacteria), and the future
• antibiotic alternatives – including the herb echinacea which is one of the most popular over-the-counter herbal supplements
• natural ways to counteract side-effects when you need to have a course of antibiotics
• how antibiotics affect your own ‘friendly bacteria’, (gut flora), bowel function, allergy repercussions and the build up of toxic residues.
• Regular courses of antibiotics (prescribed with far too much frequency by many GPs for acne, for example) lead to hostile bacteria or candida albicans (a yeast).
• Book includes an anti-candida diet and methods to fight infection such as herbal and vitamin therapy, hydrotherapy and fasting
