Why I’m AFRAID to take antibiotics…

Are you afraid to take antibiotics?

I sure think twice before accepting a prescription from my doctor.

Lately, I’ve been reading a lot about the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria… “superbugs”…

… It’s truly terrifying.

Why aren’t we hearing more about this?

The World Health Organization released a statement in October of 2015, predicting the end of modern medicine as we know it.

A time when “common infections will once again kill.”

And the AMR study commissioned by the UK Prime Minister, released in March 2016, predicted that by 2050, we’ll see over 10 MILLION DEATHS annually from superbugs.

Making antibiotic resistance MORE DEADLY than Cancer.

I know there’s a global push for faster development of NEW antibiotics.

But is it just me?  Or does that race already seem lost?

It’s expensive and it takes decades to develop new drugs.

The World Health Organization is already saying we’re not reacting fast enough on a global scale to avoid the coming Antibiotic Apocalypse.

And now scientists discovered “pan-resistant” bacteria that carry a gene that allows them to resist all of the world’s antibiotics.

Microbiologists are having public panic attacks.

And as always, I’m left wondering…

What haven’t they told us yet?

There is no doubt in my mind that our medical system is breaking down, being pushed back to the 1800s.

So the question I have for you is…

… Are you ready for this?

Do you know how to treat common injuries and infections without the help of a doctor or antibiotics?

Could you avoid exposing your child or elderly mom to DEADLY secondary infections? By treating them at home? Instead of dragging them to hospitals, which are known breeding grounds for antibiotic resistant bacteria?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t have these skills (yet).

And that’s why I was relieved to see one of our own, Marjory Wildcraft of The Grow Network, leading the way with this video series:

“Treating Infections Without Antibiotics”.

I think you’ll be surprised by how easy it can be to treat and prevent infections.
