alternatives to antibiotics

It could happen. If we lose our range of effective antibiotics and create antibiotics resistance, we’ll lose a lot more too: no more sophisticated interventions, like organ transplants, pacemakers, joint replacement and care of preterm infants, will become more difficult or even too dangerous to undertake. Minor wounds and trauma will once again become life-threatening […]

Hippocrates said, “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.” Never is this more true than providing what your body needs to fight infection. Over the last several decades, over-use of antibiotics has reached an all-time high. The result has been drug-resistant bacteria and “superbugs” that evolve faster than scientists can […]

The technical word is a bacteriophage (which means “eater of bacteria”), or often just phage for short. Special viruses have this useful skill. We may harness them for deliberate use, pumping phages into a person challenged with a bacterial infection. We call this “phage therapy”. It’s a viable alternative to antibiotics. I gave it some […]

These antibiotics can’t be patented, are cheap, plentiful and are Nature’s blessed gifts to us. You can access them anywhere, except perhaps the darkest polar nights. Can you guess what they are? Fresh air and sunshine. You probably think I’m joking. But fresh air and sunlight are among the oldest concepts in medicine. Florence Nightingale […]
