Evonne Herkert: I’m only showing the past 12 months. You get the drift. BTW “Intravenous vitamin C is a simple, cheap, effective alternative to antibiotic use and would be effective even against ‘Super Bugs’. Liposomal encapsulated vitamin C is a practical alternative for home use.”When I take a Vitamin C pill I look for 1,000 mg in a complex, which means it will have the biflavonoids and maybe rose hips. I take several a day, or once an hour if I’m fighting something.
The growing threat of antibiotic resistance and “superbugs” is an issue I’ve been raising the red flag about for years now. And I know many of you already understand the threat is real. But it can be hard to explain to friends and colleagues who I’ve noticed often roll their eyes and assume I must be exaggerating. The antibiotic apocalypse? The end of modern medicine? “Impossible” is the reaction I often get. So for those of you, like me, who are trying to educate friends and family on the gravity of the situation, I’ve put together this “news reel” highlighting some of the biggest headlines from a variety of sources over the last 12+ months.

Lyme disease is exceedingly difficult to treat, due to its well-known shape-shifting (pleomorphic) abilities, with conventional antibiotics often failing to produce a long-term cure. Could the commonly used natural plant Stevia provide a safer, and more effective means to combat this increasingly prevalent infection? Continue reading
Could There Be Something Wrong with the Germ Theory?
by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News
Our modern medicine’s paradigm is based mostly on the germ theory of microbes invading our bodies and causing disease, thus creating the need for a war against microbes to eliminate them all and conquer all diseases. Fear is the motivation for creating the weapons of antibiotics, antivirals, and vaccines befitting this concept, but our modern populations are sicker than ever.
Are the weapons creating chronic debilitating diseases in exchange for acute illnesses considered infectious that most manage to get over with a renewed resilience to the dreaded pathogenic microbes blamed for all illness? Are we actually destroying our immune systems with our war on microbes? Continue reading
(NaturalHealth365) Which is more shocking, the revelation that a popular class of antibiotics has been linked to life-threatening complications, or the fact that drug companies knew about these risks, but covered them up? Unfortunately, when profits come above patient welfare, neither reality comes as a surprise. (especially when you consider the ‘untested’ drugs on the market)
Fluoroquinolone antibiotics [Cipro, Levaquin, Floxin, Ocuflox, Avelox, Vitgamox] are Continue reading

Antibiotic resistance is a serious threat facing all of us today, and there’s plenty of blame to go around. Overall, modern science, especially veterinary medicine, has done a miserable job when it comes to predicting the outcome of its actions. According to Dr. Cyril Gay,1 the senior national program leader at the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Research Service:
“The loss of antibiotics due to antimicrobial resistance is potentially one of the most important challenges the medical and animal-health communities will face in the 21st century.”
Antibiotic resistance has also been declared “an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society” by the World Health Organization (WHO).2 Continue reading

Scientists are no longer even sure how antibiotics work.
According to Dr. David Williams, antibiotics may prevent the body from excreting mercury, which is found in fish and in many vaccines. This was documented in a study by Boyd Haley, PhD, from the University of Connecticut Medical Center. Mercury is highly toxic. In animals studies, researchers can mimic the exact same physiological changes to the brain along with the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease by simply adding mercury to the system.

(NaturalNews) Probiotics stimulate the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestines and the gut. A new analysis encourages pregnant mothers to take probiotics during pregnancy to help lower the risk of allergies in their kids. The good bacteria balance in a mother’s gut is passed to their baby through the placenta and the colustrum of breast milk. Probiotics are a great way to nurture the child even before they are born.
