(NaturalNews) Pharmaceutical antibiotics do not work on viral infections. They can only be used for bacterial infections. But they also destroy the good bacteria, which creates all sorts of health problems down the road. And the more antibiotics are used, the more pathogenic bacteria become resistant to antibiotics. There is a natural solution to this quandary. It is an oil based common household spice - Oil of Oregano.
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Pharmaceutical Antibiotics
When penicillin was first created, the world marveled at its ability to cure infectious diseases. The consequences of antibiotics destroying ALL bacteria was overlooked or ignored. The virtues and benefits of intestinal flora or good bacteria were probably unknown.
Contrary to the indoctrinated public perception that all bacteria are bad, our bodies contain more bacteria of all types than we have cells. The ideal ratio of good little critters to pathogenic microbes is considered to be 85% to 15%. Besides being necessary for adequate digestion, the good little critters monitor and trigger appropriate immune system responses.
When that gets out of balance, the bad guys start taking over. This leads to a fungal infections, of which Candida yeast overgrowth is the most commonly known. Candida can lead to cancer, as Dr. Mark Sircus and Rome based oncologist Dr. Tulio Simoncini have discovered. Both practitioners use bicarbonate of soda to cure cancer. Bicarbonate of soda's sudden alkaline pH surge kills cancer cells and Candida colonies.
Dr. Simoncini has observed a symbiotic relationship between yeast colonies and cancer cell tumors every time he directly inserts a baking soda/sugar solution into cancerous areas. Consequently, he has declared fungal colonies as the source of cancer. Simoncini has been successful curing cancer quite often. And both the cancer and Candida are resolved simultaneously with his procedures.
Dr. Martin Blaser, MD and two of his colleagues at the Department of Medicine at NYU Langone Medical Department Center recently expressed concern over the long term negative effects of antibiotic use. In addition to pathogenic bacterial resistance to antibiotics, they warned of a decreased immune system function as the good bacteria are killed off.
Oil of Oregano Benefits
Oil of oregano handles pathogenic bacteria without disrupting beneficial bacteria. It is also anti-viral and anti-fungal. This is a rare three in one combination. Imagine destroying fungal colonies while ridding oneself of a bacterial or viral infection and preserving your good bacteria. In addition to being antiviral and antifungal without side effects, Oregano Oil also rids the body of parasites, even giardia.
Organic mountain grown Mediterranean oregano is the best choice. The oil base should be pure cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. There have been many different applications for this recently rediscovered natural herbal treatment of 2000 years.
Many different university studies and other independent research have confirmed Oregano Oil's potent antimicrobial characteristics without side effects. Its antibacterial effectiveness rivals pharmaceuticals while not encouraging antibiotic resistance or killing beneficial bacteria.
The oregano should be organic and the olive oil should be pristine. The chief antimicrobial ingredient is carvacrol. Oregano Oil should contain a 70% carvacrol content to be effective. Another antibacterial ingredient is terpenes. Oregano's antifungal properties come from thymol. Other nutrients include the powerful antioxidant rosmarinic, minerals including magnesium, and vitamins E and K.
This is the type of flu solution one should have on hand. You can use it, along with eliminating sugar and taking probiotics, to cure Candida. Though not cheap, a little goes a long way. Oregano oil can be purchased at good herbal or health food stores as well as on line.
