(NaturalHealth365) Every year, at least 2.8 million Americans develop an antibiotic-resistant infection – and more than 35,000 of them lose their lives. Scientists warn that certain bacteria have become resistant to existing antimicrobial treatments, causing common infections to become difficult – or even impossible – to treat. This frightening situation has led the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to label antibiotic resistance as one of the biggest public health challenges of our time – and has triggered a scramble among researchers to develop alternative antimicrobial strategies.
(Natural News) Antibiotic resistance is a genuine health threat. It is considered one of the major health issues of this age. Severe burn victims are particularly susceptible to antibiotic-resistant infection because their body tissues create a niche environment for pathogens. Antibiotic ointments used to be an effective treatment but the rising threat of antibiotic resistance leaves many burn patients vulnerable.
(NaturalHealth365)With cases of COVID-19 topping 3 million globally – and the death toll exceeding 230,000 – scientists are working feverishly to develop vaccines, treatments and therapies. But, some natural health experts maintain that the key to fighting COVID-19 and other viral infections could lie much closer to home – in the form of a common kitchen staple.
Scientific studiesshow that certain viruses – including coronaviruses – are much more infectious in an acidic environment. Could bicarbonate of soda (a natural antacid) possibly play a role in slowing the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses? While clinical studies have not been performed, advocates say that bicarbonate of soda, also known as baking soda, may be used as a safe, cost-effective therapy to help ward off infection. →
