Dangers of Anti-Biotics

Antibiotics are just like radiation in cancer treatment. As radiation destroys or kills all cells in the body-cancerous cells as well as healthy cells-antibiotics likewise target all bacteria, beneficial or good bacteria in addition to detrimental or bad bacteria.

Antibiotics are a synthetically (or semi-synthetically) made drug designed to interfere with the natural bacteria or flora in the body by inhibiting and destroying growth of microorganisms.

One of the problems with antibiotics is that they disrupt the natural balance of the body. Though we are alkaline creatures as human beings, we require acidity to keep us balanced. Anytime beneficial bacteria or microorganisms become outnumbered by harmful bacteria or microorganisms, the body’s natural body ecology is negatively effected. Antibiotics can also trigger yeast infections in women by changing the body ecology and the unhealthy flora, bacteria, or microorganisms get out of check and spread.

Antibiotics have been over-prescribed for years, creating “super bugs” that are resistant to traditional treatment. Doctors are finally getting the message that just because a patient asks for an antibiotic, they don’t necessarily need it.

Not all microorganisms are harmful. In fact, when properly contained, the harmful bacteria or microorganisms are also not harmful. The harm comes from when the harmful bacteria or microorganisms begin to grow and outnumber the beneficial bacteria.

Natural Alternatives

If you need a natural alternative or a natural agent for the duty of an antibiotic, turn to Nature for help. In place of antibiotics, you can use antimicrobial herbs such as:

  • Neem
  • Astragalus
  • Garlic
  • Echinacea
  • Goldenseal
  • Pau D’Arco
  • Myrrh Gum
  • Calendula
  • Elecampane

These can be taken together in capsule (pill), extract, or tea form or can even be taken as a douche (if the problem is acute).

    Q: I have been diagnosed with Prostatitis. I have been talking anti-biotics to treat the bacteria. Other than the symptoms of pelvic pain and clear bacteria presence, I have been having issues with erection and libido. I was put on a antibiotics for 3 months. My question is after I am done with the antibiotics I would like to use herbs for continual treatment. I think it would be a good idea to detox after my treatment but what would you recommend for the sex drive and erection issue? In one of your articles you said " Would you believe that most cases of penile erectile dysfunction are due to Clogged Arteries, and Poor Blood CIRCULATION?" I am in agreement with that statement. How does this factor in with my case of prostatitis since I am having some erection, sex drive issues?

    A:

    Antibiotics for prostatitis? Not helping the problem! I urge you to read our "Male Prostate" article in our articles section. Don't even worry about the sex drive. Your body is talking to you about a disease and you're concerned with erection. Refrain from sex, and concentrate on healing. Get your mind right! Focus on optimal health and well-being. Please check out our Mental Science Manual (visit e-books section). Think about performing the Full Body Detox followed by the Total Male Cleanse, at least for starters in correcting this problem.

    Q: I have a good dentist, that cares much about the health and service of her patients. The only thing is that, it's their practice that before they can do anything on you (ex. fill cavities, root canal or anything) you have to take antibiotics an hour before the appointment. This is for prevention of any infections during, or after the procedure. I read the article about antibiotics, and know how harmful it is for your body. I am soon going need to have an implant procedure done. I want to know if there is an alternative to antibiotics or something I can take to be ready for the surgery in oppose to taking the antibiotics for prevention of infections?

    A:

    Most people opt for the antibiotics, and then after the dental work just consume carbon (activated charcoal). Antibiotics options would include Echinacea-Goldenseal extract, and Candida Buster formula which is 100% anti-biotical in nature. These products are all available in our store. Peace and Love!

    Q: For roughly 10 years the doctor have said that I have Bacteria Infections. I have asked repeatedly, how does this cured once and for all. There seems to be no cure. This is an embarrassment to me not only publicly but privately as well because I am constantly feeling self-conscientious about it. I have asked if it's an STD or STI and the answer is always no, my body is producing too much of this bacteria after my husband ejaculates in me. What is a cure or a method or prevention I can use that is all natural? I need something that will last a lifetime verses dose to dose.

    A:

    Please read the article "BACTERIOR VAGINOSIS" and "WHY WOMEN ARE SO SICK" Product-wise: I recommend the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE followed by the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Doctors are ignorant to true causes of diseases. They are of no value!

    Q: I read your article; I am so stressed out trying to find a cure for this. I have tried everything possible pills, creams. I don't douche. I need help I had this problem for a year. It goes away for 2 days then it comes back. I don't have an odor it’s just a discharge. I just want the discharge to go away. I feel as though all the medicine I took messed up my balance and that’s probably why the bv hasn't gone away. I need something that is going to help but be safe for me. I know the antibiotics kill my good bacteria. I just need help badly. I don't know what else to do. I am just so lost on everything. I understand what it is and how to works. All I want is for it to go away. I am thinking I just need my balance to go back up or replenish my good bacteria, I am just not sure what to do anymore, also I am trying to change how I eat, is there certain foods I need to eat or drink? Or certain soap or laundry detergent? I just need help ASAP!!!!!!

    Q: My sister and I both have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, except my sister has a very severe form of the disease. She has a very irregular menstrual cycle, has severe water retention-- especially with swelling in the face, feet and hands. She constantly has a dull stomachache and cannot lose weight. Doctors seem to only prescribe antibiotics for the recurrent infections (stomach) she has and I am sure they're killing off the good bacteria in her body. We are now ready to turn to natural remedies and I was thinking a cleanse may be a good start. What might you recommend for some of her symptoms?especially something to cleanse the blood and promote lymphatic drainage?

    A:

    Please consider FIRST performing our Full Body Detox (FBD) for 3-weeks, and SECONDLY, performing our Fibroid Buster kit and regimen for another 3-weeks. These kits will greatly help you guys in your health challenges. Please make sure to read our free articles on our site under "ARTICLES."

    Q: I see a lot of your tea formulas if not all of them are also offered in pill form. Which is recommended the tea or the pill? Also I am pretty sure I have a bacterial infection of some sort. I have been to 2 different doctors neither one of them actually ran any test to find out what the infection was. They really didn’t even listen to me at all when I went there. Actually I told them flat out what tests I wanted done and they still didn’t do them. Now I remember why I hate traditional doctors. One doctor took an x-ray and told me I have a whole lot of bacteria in my ingestions what an x-ray shows there I don’t know because even if it appears cloudy bacteria is SUPPOSE to be there anyway. I already knew I had a problem bacteria there as I am having mucus in my stools. He just gave me an antibotic and that was it. either way his 3 day antibiotic didn’t work and I felt ripped off paying a copay for 3 pills. So I have a question about a recommendation here. I know for sure the bacteria is affecting my intestines as the mucus in my stool. I don’t know where else it has worked into but I am thinking it’s starting to effect my eyes some as well as I have noticed they appear much more watery than normal and looks like they get a discharge from them and they are much more red than normal. Regardless to what the doctor says I don’t have allergies. I know my body much better than he does I have never had allergy problems in the past so I don’t think its caused from that. so what products should I be looking at? and are the teas or pills recommended?

    A:

    Capsules are more potent than teas but teas get into the body faster. So you can choose what you're looking for. Both capsules and teas work however! For bacterial infection: First perform the FULL BODY DETOX and follow that up with the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Change your diet: raw foods (75%) and vegan (25%). Drink plenty of vegetable juice. Drink Dherbs MUCUS BUSTER TEA daily (1-2 cups) p.s. - Don't hate traditional doctors! It's negative energy. Read my article â€LEAVE MEDICAL DOCTORS ALONEâ€.

    Q: Hi, I have been suffering from a dull pain the testicular area for over 2 years now. I have seen 2 urologists that have confirmed that I have enterococcus bacteria in either the prostate of genital area based on semen culture. I have also done testicle ultrasound and CAT scan of the area with good results. One of the urologist said that I have an inflamed prostate (prostitis) there was some varicose veins when ultra sound was done but the urologist continues to give me long term antibiotics. Some my symptoms have been dull pain in the testicular area when I need to have a bowel movement. low energy, moody, memory loss, irritable, confused, brain fog etc. I use to have a health sex drive but now my sex drive is really low. A bit of erectile dysfunction but I think that comes more from having the pain all the time and anxiety. I don't know if this is possible but my penis seems to have reduced in size when erect. The doctor ask me to try some cialis for the ED which I did for a short while but decided I needed something natural because of the long term problems of using those medications. I have had long periods of stress from a bitter business relationship about 2 years ago. My concern is that every time I go to the urologist all they want to do it give me antibiotics and that doesn't seem to be working. I am concern of the other organ damage caused by taking long term antibiotics. Is there an alternative you recommend? I have been looking at your Anti- virus treatment. I am 30 years old.

    A:

    I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOXfollowed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. Read some of our free health articles too on male reproductive health. Healing begins with knowledge!

    Q: Do I need to take a "Probiotic Supplement" with the FULL BODY DETOX? For the bacteria that needs to stay inside your colon, because we lose good and bad bacteria from the colon from detoxing the whole body. Do good bacteria need to stay in our colon and bodies especially for women's vagina to keep it clean.

    A:

    Taking the supplement in addition to the cleanse is not necessary at all. The cleanse does not eliminate all of the good bacteria, if anything it plays a role in balancing it out. Probiotic supplements are not always the best choice.

    Q: I recently purchased the YONI FORMULA in hopes to jump-start my treatment since I could not afford the FULL BODY DETOX or TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. My mom did the FULL BODY DETOX and looks and feels great! Unfortunately I am not in the financial position to buy that yet but I do have vaginal discharge and it makes me so very uncomfortable. I've been tested for STD's and have a clean bill. My doctor continues to treat me for vaginosis or bacteria infection. I now only take showers and began to use the dherbs papaya soap. So far I've been taking the Yoni for 1 week. Will this help with my problem?

    A:

    The YONI FORMULA will help but modified diet will also help. Cut out eating meat, dairy products, refined grains, refined starches, etc. Drink plenty of vegetable juice; eat raw fruits, salads, etc. Eat healthy!

    Q: I was reading your article about vinegar being harmful to the body because of its acids and I was curious to know what you think of the Organic unpasturized, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with mother? I saw that at the end of the article it stated that "if you must" use vinegar to use the organic apple cider vinegar but, I have read many places that it has many health benefits such as reducing bad cholesterol, regulating blood pressure, eliminating toxic waste from the body, fighting fungal and bacterial infections, helping relieve joint pains, breaking down fat which helps in natural weight reduction.

    A:

    I approve of apple cider vinegar for health purposes. Some good stuff!

    Q: Your products as a whole all look interesting really. But I thought I would ask about the anti-viral kit. My mother was actually diagnosed with herpes a few years back due to a jackass of a husband she had. I know she's been taking the suppressive medication for it. I personally do not have much faith in modern medicine. I don't really trust doctors, they are easily paid off by big pharmaceutical companies. Anyway, is the single kit generally enough to rid a person of their viral problems? I am sure there's many factors on this but in general is it enough? Personally am even thinking of purchasing it for myself as well as the other cleanse products. I have been reading a lot about the ph diets and while I don't believe my diet is as bad as most Americans. I would like to run some complete cleanse stuff on me. Probably all of them actually. Make sure to get out everything. Virus bacteria and acidic deposits. So even will probably look at your std cleanse.

    A:

    In many cases, only one kit is necessary to eradicate the herpes virus. For more severe cases, some individuals may need to also perform the Full Body Cleanse or perform 2 Anti-Viral Kits to strengthen the immune system and continue to fight against viral disease and infection.

    Q: Unfortunately, we never got a chance to begin the FULL BODY DETOX because the wound became badly infected and he was hospitalized and given large doses of i.v. Antibiotics to control the infection. After a week of this, he was discharged with an oral antibiotic, levaquin, to continue taking with also a wound-vac attached to the huge gapping hole in his leg. This machine sucks out the extra fluid and infectious material which, according to them, will assist in tissue regeneration thus closing and healing on its own without performing a 3rd surgery to try and close it. HERE LIES THE PROBLEM, as a result of the poisons, he's developed an oral thrush and a rash in his groin area. Keep in mind that before now, he's a man who would never take any drugs not even an aspirin and even refused the pain killers post surgery. One of your customer service reps advised to move forward with the FULL BODY DETOX 1st before I proceed to order the : CANDIDA BUSTER. He also advised to check with you on this approach. Additionally, what do you think of using a colloidal silver to assist with killing off any infectious bugs that may be lingering? He has discontinued the levaquin and all of their completely.

    A:

    I WOULD SUGGEST BEGINNING WITH THE FULL BODY DETOX AND USING THE COLLOIDAL SILVER ONLY AFTER COMPLETING THE FULL BODY DETOX. ONE THING FOR SURE, HE HAS THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND. SOUNDS LIKE HE'LL BE ALL RIGHT IF HE PERFORMS THE NATURAL THINGS AND ENTIRELY LEAVE THE DRUGS ALONE!

    Q: What do you recommend for a very bad case of systemic yeast with many symptoms; cold hands and feet, constipation, mental confusion, bad food digestion, etc? And what about replacing the good bacteria? I have tried many things and nothing has worked. I think this Candida yeast came from being on birth control for a short period of time and then Anti-Biotics for a short time as well, probably stress too.

    A:

    Perform the FULL BODY DETOX for 3-weeks. After the FULL BODY DETOX, take 6 capsules daily of Candida Buster formula, and 3 capsules daily of Colon Conditioner. Try our natural PRO-BIOTIC/ACIDOPHILUS formula to replace the beneficial bacteria.
