Antibiotic Drugs vs Natural Antibiotics
In a clinical study in 2008, antibiotic side effects led to more than 140,000 emergency admissions per year in USA. About 50 percent of emergency visits were due to antibiotics reactions in the penicillin class drugs, and the other 50 percent were due to a variety of other class antibiotics used to treat many different types of infections. Antibiotics drugs should be used with caution and use alternative natural sources first. Of course, the balance between antibiotic drugs vs natural antibiotics is all in your hands.
Some of the most common side effects are: rash, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, dizziness, hearing loss, renal toxicity, liver toxicity, vaginal candidiasis, allergic reactions, headache, peripheral neuropathy, just to list a few and beside antibiotic resistance, if one antibiotic class is use often.
The etymology of the word “antibiotic” comes from Greek – anti + bios, life – ”pertaining to the ability to destroy or interfere with the development of a living organism”. Antibiotics work more specifically against living cells. Since our bodies are also made of living cells, antibiotics have to distinguish between bacterial cells and our bodies cells. Beside the bacteria invaders the antibiotics also kill the “good bacteria” and some of our living cells.
