Healthcare seems to have come full circle as it moved away from natural cures into synthetics, but has now begun to look closer at the natural world once more for medicine. Part of this may be due to the new resistant superbugs that have begun to make things more difficult. Dr. Weston discussed antibiotics. Antibiotics inhibit the growth of or even kill bacteria. These have saved countless lives and improved many conditions for many years. Originally antibiotics came only from natural sources, but as demand and our knowledge grew, we replaced these with synthetics. Superbugs were predicted early on, but we ignored the warnings. Regrettably, the dire warnings have now become a reality. There are strains of mutated, antibiotic-resistant bacteria that ignore even our most effective antibiotics or even eat them like candy. We overuse antibiotics or use them incorrectly. About 80% of the antibiotics sold in the US are used for livestock. This overuse has created our new problems, but antibiotics also come with risks of allergy, side effects, and the destruction of helpful bacteria we need. Natural antibiotics abound in our world, without all the dangerous side effects, like garlic, pau d'arco, olive leaf, cloves, sage, cinnamon, and ionic silver. Our natural world has many plants, herbs, and foods that can offer so much more than we know. -- Subscribe to our channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=sunwarriortribe -- Visit us at: http://www.sunwarrior.com/ Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sunwarrior Follow us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Sunwarrior Hang out with us on Google+: http://plus.google.com/100431369190586473063/posts Follow us on Pinterest: https://pinterest.com/sunwarriortribe/

When Jackie Beaton had a bad sinus infection a few years ago, she did what many of us would do. "I went to my doctor - and I really expected to have some kind of magic fix or medication for my sinus issue," admitted Beaton. Her doctor gave her an antibiotic. But instead of getting better. She got worse. "I have to say it's the worst pain probably I've ever felt," Beaton said. After several tests Jackie learned she had Clostridium Difficile or C. Diff. It's a bacterial infection often caused by antibiotics. "(It's) fairly common. We see probably in the United States about half a million to 750,000 cases a year," said Fremont Health Infectious Disease Specialist Angela Sukstorf. "It has to do with overuse of antibiotics. Antibiotics are not being used properly - about 50% of antibiotic use is inappropriate," she added.

The overuse of antibiotics — especially taking antibiotics even when they're not the appropriate treatment — promotes antibiotic resistance. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up to one-third to one-half of antibiotic use in humans is unnecessary or inappropriate. Antibiotics treat bacterial infections but not viral infections. For example, an antibiotic is an appropriate treatment for strep throat, which is caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes. But it's not the right treatment for most sore throats, which are caused by viruses. Other common viral infections that don't benefit from antibiotic treatment include: Cold Flu (influenza) Bronchitis Most coughs Some ear infections Some sinus infections Stomach flu Taking an antibiotic for a viral infection: Won't cure the infection Won't keep other people from getting sick Won't help you or your child feel better May cause unnecessary and harmful side effects Promotes antibiotic resistance If you take an antibiotic when you actually have a viral infection, the antibiotic attacks bacteria in your body — bacteria that are either beneficial or at least not causing disease. This misdirected treatment can then promote antibiotic-resistant properties in harmless bacteria that can be shared with other bacteria, or create an opportunity for potentially harmful bacteria to replace the harmless ones. Taking antibiotics responsibly It's tempting to stop taking an antibiotic as soon as you feel better. But the full treatment is necessary to kill the disease-causing bacteria. Failure to take an antibiotic as prescribed can result in the need to resume treatment later and may promote the spread of antibiotic-resistant properties among harmful bacteria. Consequences of antibiotic resistance For many years, the introduction of new antibiotics outpaced the development of antibiotic resistance. In recent years, however, the pace of medication resistance has contributed to an increasing number of health care problems. Approximately 2 million infections from antibiotic-resistant bacteria occur in the United States each year, resulting in 23,000 deaths. Other consequences of medication-resistant infections include: More-serious illness Longer recovery More-frequent or longer hospitalization More doctor visits More-expensive treatments …………………………………………………………………………………….

Antibiotics are often prescribed to patients who don't need them, as a way to generate income for hospitals. The drugs are also increasingly being misused in China's food industry. The Associated Press reported last Thursday that antibiotics are being found in foods like fish and honey. Overusing antibiotics can create superbugs that become resistant to conventional drugs. According to WHO's representative in China Dr. Michael O'Leary, about 6.8% of tuberculosis cases in the country are multiple-drug resistant. This is much higher than the 2% rate in most developed countries. O'Leary says drug-resistant bacteria are dangerous to patients because infections take longer to treat, and there is a greater risk of death. On Monday, Chinese state-run media reported authorities are looking to draw up guidelines to control the use of antibiotics. According to China's Ministry of Health, 70% of Chinese patients are given antibiotics when only 20% actually need them.

Stop Abusing Antibiotics! FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2008 Filed under: dangerous or safe In the ninth instalment of her "Dangerous or Safe?" series, paediatrician Dr. Cara Natter son sets the record straight on antibiotics. Getty Images WHAT IS THE QUESTION? The discovery of antibiotics marked one of the major turning points in medical history: For the first time, medicines could fight infections head on. But ... *antibiotics only fight infections *antibiotics only treat one kind of infection: bacterial *each specific antibiotic only fights a few particular bacteria It quickly became a slippery slope to the abuse of antibiotics: *when given "just in case," antibiotics became grossly overused *almost immediately, bacteria evolved strategies to live through the antibiotics -- this then required higher doses and newer formulations *now there are bacteria resistant to almost all antibiotics that exist -- and we cannot come up with new antibiotics fast enough How big a problem is antibiotic resistance? *approximately 2 million people acquire infections while being hospitalized every year, an estimated 90,000 of them die of these infections, and 70% of these bacteria are resistant to at least one drug (and some are resistant to all) *in the community (rather than within the hospital), there are two drug resistant bacteria that have become so ubiquitous, they are widely known by their acronyms: MRSA (methacillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) VRE (vancomycin-resistant enterococcus) How did we get to this point with resistance? *parents request antibiotics or doctors prescribe them unnecessarily *patients are often noncompliant with their antibiotics (not completing the course or missing a few doses here and there) *we have exposures to antibiotics we don't often think about, like through our food supply (via the use of antibiotics in feed, in plant material, and to proactively ward off infections so that animals can grow big and strong) WHAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE? Antibiotics (along with their preventive counterpart, vaccines) are credited with adding an average of 20 years of lifespan to people living in developed countries. These are not evil medications. When used appropriately, they can be miracle cures. But they haven't always been used appropriately. *doctors need to get better and better at prescribing antibiotics judiciously *consumers should learn to rely upon their doctors to determine when an antibiotic is necessary and appropriate *patients need to learn to follow the prescribed course of an antibiotic, and not adjust it according to their own medical expertise *we should all be working to get antibiotics out of our food supply, working to encourage farmers to stop using antibiotics in farm animals

Dr Chris Steele MBE talks about the dangers of the over-prescribing of antibiotics. A leading NHS figure says that doctors should face disciplinary action for prescribing antibiotics unnecessarily. As antibiotic resistance becomes an increasingly significant threat, experts are eager to reduce the number of antibiotic prescriptions, but are worried that “soft-touch” doctors are giving them out too frequently. Mark Baker, director of clinical practice at the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), warns that the waning power of antibiotics “threatens the whole basis of modern medicine.” As rising numbers of infections become resistant to drugs, bacterial and fungal diseases become increasingly difficult to treat. If the effectiveness of antibiotics continues to decrease, long-forgotten infections could kill again, and procedures such as surgery and chemotherapy could be jeopardised. When doctors prescribe antibiotics for minor problems, such as colds and sore throats, this only increases the risk of resistance. Yet too many GPs continue to do so, prompting new guidance from NICE. The latest guidelines call for more rigorous policing of antibiotic prescribing practice, with expert teams monitoring and comparing data from different hospitals and GP practices. They call for doctors to take into account the risk of antimicrobial resistance both for the patient and the wider population before issuing prescriptions, and also for them to take microbial samples from patients suspected of infections before signing a prescription. Many patients have serious misconceptions about antibiotics and drug-resistant bugs, and the guidelines emphasise how important it is for doctors to educate them and explain the risks. Baker says that many patients are used to the idea that antibiotics will solve their health problems and pressure their doctors into prescribing them. The guidelines encourage doctors to tell patients when antibiotics are inappropriate and refuse to write prescriptions. Baker believes that over-prescribing doctors who do not change their habits should be dealt with by the General Medical Council because of their “hazardous practice.” “We hope that by publishing these guidelines, it will become more difficult to prescribe antibiotics inappropriately,” he says. “Most doctors prescribe sensibly and competently. For the relatively small number who are less-disciplined, first we need to identify them, and secondly there needs to be processes to deal with them.” A Department of Health spokesperson says: “Tackling the overuse of antibiotics is a global issue that affects everyone – government, patients, doctors, dentists and vets treating animals – not just GPs. In order to make sure we have effective antibiotics for generations to come, we are raising global awareness of the dangers of resistance to antibiotics and providing tools for GPs to support prescribing decisions.”

Antibiotics have saved millions of lives, but their misuse and overuse is making them less effective as bacteria develop resistance. Despite scientists’ warnings, antibiotic prescriptions in many countries continue to soar and antibiotic use in farming is at record levels. As a result, doctors are now seeing infections they can no longer treat. Are we facing the end of modern medicine? An antibiotic apocalypse that takes medicine back to the Dark Ages? Or will researchers outwit the incredibly clever bacteria and find novel ways to beat resistance?

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Antibiotic misuse, sometimes called antibiotic abuse or antibiotic overuse, refers to the misuse or overuse of antibiotics, with potentially serious effects on health. It is a contributing factor to the development of antibiotic resistance, including the creation of multidrug-resistant bacteria, informally called "super bugs": relatively harmless bacteria can develop resistance to multiple antibiotics and cause life-threatening infections. Common situations in which antibiotics are overused include the following: Apparent viral respiratory illness in children should not be treated with antibiotics. If there is a diagnosis of bacterial infection, then antibiotics may be used. When children with ear tubes get ear infections, they should have antibiotic eardrops put into their ears to go to the infection rather than having oral antibiotics which are more likely to have unwanted side effects. Swimmer's ear should be treated with antibiotic eardrops, not oral antibiotics. Sinusitis should not be treated with antibiotics because it is usually caused by a virus, and even when it is caused by a bacteria, antibiotics are not indicated except in atypical circumstances as it usually resolves without treatment. Viral conjunctivitis should not be treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics should only be used with confirmation that a patient has bacterial conjunctivitis. Older persons often have bacteria in their urine which is detected in routine urine tests, but unless the person has the symptoms of a urinary tract infection, antibiotics should not be used in response. Eczema should not be treated with oral antibiotics. Dry skin can be treated with lotions or other symptom treatments. The use of topical antibiotics to treat surgical wounds does not reduce infection rates in comparison with non-antibiotic ointment or no ointment at all. Antibiotics can cause severe reactions and add significantly to the cost of care. In the United States, antibiotics and anti-infectives are the leading cause of adverse effect from drugs. In a study of 32 States in 2011, antibiotics and anti-infectives accounted for nearly 24 percent of ADEs that were present on admission, and 28 percent of those that occurred during a hospital stay. Prescribing by an infectious disease specialist compared with prescribing by a non-infectious disease specialist decreases antibiotic consumption and reduces costs. Though antibiotics are required to treat severe bacterial infections, misuse has contributed to a rise in bacterial resistance. The overuse of fluoroquinolone and other antibiotics fuels antibiotic resistance in bacteria, which can inhibit the treatment antibiotic-resistant infections. Their excessive use in children with otitis media has given rise to a breed of bacteria resistant to antibiotics entirely. Widespread use of fluoroquinolones as a first-line antibiotic has led to decreased antibiotic sensitivity, with negative implications for serious bacterial infections such as those associated with cystic fibrosis, where quinolones are among the few viable antibiotics. Antibiotics have no effect on viral infections such as the common cold. They are also ineffective against sore throats, which are usually viral and self-resolving. Most cases of bronchitis (90–95%) are viral as well, passing after a few weeks—the use of antibiotics against bronchitis is superfluous and can put the patient at risk of suffering adverse reactions. Official guidelines by the American Heart Association for dental antibiotic prophylaxis call for the administration of antibiotics to prevent infective endocarditis. Though the current (2007) guidelines dictate more restricted antibiotic use, many dentists and dental patients follow the 1997 guidelines instead, leading to overuse of antibiotics. A study by Imperial College London in February 2017 found that of 20 online websites, 9 would provide antibiotics (illegally) without a prescription to UK residents.....

In this video full detail about antibiotic resistance / antibiotic abuse / overuse / misuse is given in hindi. Details about antibiotic overuse and superbugs is also given.Side effects of antibiotics are also explained. Overuse and misuse of antibiotics can promote the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Every time a person takes antibiotics, sensitive bacteria (bacteria that antibiotics can still attack) are killed, but resistant bacteria are left to grow and multiply.

Antibiotic resistance can cause illnesses to humans and animals. Illnesses that were once easily treatable with antibiotics can now become harder to treat and may lead to dangerous infections. The overuse and misuse of antibiotics are the cause of the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The world and society need to change the way they prescribe and use antibiotics since antibiotic-resistant bacteria is rising in many parts of the world.
