15 Powerful Herbs to Kill Infections and Clear Mucus from Your Lungs
15 Powerful Herbs to Kill Infections and Clear Mucus from Your Lungs Every year, thousands of Americans are affected by bacterial and viral infections. In most cases, it takes a longer period to recover from the problems with the respiratory system. A lot of people have antibiotics and conventional medicine as their first choice for treating their problems without knowing that they can only worsen their condition. If you use antibiotics to treat your viral infections, the only thing you are doing is adding up to the body’s resistance to antibiotics. Even though antibiotics play an important role in the treatment of bacterial infections such as pneumonia, they are usually misused or overused. Antibiotics can be used only in the case of bacteria. In other words, they will not provide the desired results and fight viruses. So, the best thing you should do is try to solve your problem in a natural way. Herbal remedies were used for thousands of years in order to repair lung damage, heal infections and boost the overall health. Today, we have the 15 best herbs that will effectively improve your lung health. So, check them out! 15 Herbs That Promote and Enhance Lung Health 1. Licorice Root Licorice is believed to be one of the most used herbs around the world due to its tranquilizing nature. It was used in the Traditional Chinese Medicine for its ability to harmonize the synergy of the other herbs. Licorice can soften the mucous membranes of your lungs, stomach, and throat as well as clean the inflamed mucous membranes that need support from the immune system. Moreover, it acts as an expectorant and reduces throat aggravation. This plant contains elements that can relieve bronchial spasms, fight free radicals that cause inflammation of the air paths. In addition, Licorice possesses potent antibacterial and antiviral properties and can effectively fight viral and bacterial problems that contribute to lung infections. 2. Coltsfoot For many years, Coltsfoot was traditionally used by the Native Americans to improve lung health. Moreover, it was used as a remedy in the case of asthma, coughs, bronchitis, etc. It is available as a tea or in a dry form. 3. Cannabis The process of burning the plant, also known as vaporization, removes all the toxic breakdown of therapeutic elements in the herb. Cannabis is definitely one of the most potent anti-cancer herbs on the planet. Many studies proved the anti-invasive cannabinoid effects and their ability to stimulate the receptor activators in certain genes. Vaporizing this plant helps the active compounds to improve the natural response of the body and significantly reduce the risk of infections. Cannabis is extremely effective for treating and preventing asthma due to its ability to open up sinuses and air paths. 4. Osha root With its roots carry Camphor and other elements it has, this plant was commonly used by Native Americans as a support the respiratory system. Osha root possesses the ability to provide easier deep breaths by increasing lung circulation. Moreover, it is extremely beneficial in the case of irritations in the respiratory system, such as inflamed sinuses. 5. Thyme Thyme has potent antifungal, antibiotic, and antiseptic properties and it is very effective in the case of a virus or bacteria-based infections. Thyme was a traditional remedy used in the treatment of infections of the respiratory tract and bacterial infections like pneumonia. 6. Oregano The active compounds in oregano are carvacrol and rosmarinic acid. Moreover, oregano is a great source of nutrients and vitamins essential for our immune system. All of them are known for their positive effects on the airflow in the nasal passage and in the respiratory tract. Oregano oil can effectively destroy bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus, and can provide even better results than most of the antibiotic treatments. 7. Lobelia Lobelia is often given to race horses to help them take deep breaths. Lobelia was the main remedy used in the treatment of asthma. It has the ability to thin mucus and break up congestion. What is more, it provides positive effects in the multi-drug resistant tumor cells treatments. Additionally, Lobelia has the ability to soothe the air paths which in turn allows you to breathe easily. Having muscle-relaxing properties, Lobelia is usually implemented in many cold and cough remedies. https://youtu.be/URHFFVjSuEk

Antibiotic Producing Bacteria | Microbiology
The term “antibiotic” literally means “against life”. For our usage, however, we use the word to describe a set of chemicals that inhibit or kill bacteria. The British scientist Alexander Flaming is credited with being the first to notice that another organism could inhibit bacterial growth in 1928. He noticed that growth of the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus was inhibited by a mold (fungus) that had contaminated his plate. The mold was later identified as Penicillium notatum and the antibiotic, isolated a short time later, was named penicillin. Penicillin impact was immediately appreciated, it was described as a wonder drug and it was widely believed that infectious disease would never again be a dominant issue for mankind. Since then, we have seen numerous antibiotics discovered or developed, and we have also seen bacteria become resistant to many of them. Several diseases, once thought to be controlled are re-emerging as potent public health hazard because of antibiotic resistance and a lax attitude toward the potential of infectious diseases.

The key to this power lies in their wings, which are coated with a forest of tiny pointed pillars that impale and kill bacterial cells unlucky enough to land on them. Now, scientists report they have replicated these antibacterial nanopillars on synthetic polymers that are being developed to restore vision." Why Dragonfly Wings Kill Bacteria http://acsh.org/news/2017/02/06/why-dragonfly-wings-kill-bacteria-10829 "Yet another group used black silicon to create a surface that resembled a tiny 'bed of nails' (nanopillars), which physically rip bacteria apart. That latter example, which falls into a broad category known as nano-textured surfaces (NTS), is of particular interest because it also exists in nature. The nanostructure of black silicon is very similar to that of dragonfly wings. And just like their elemental counterpart, dragonfly wings kill bacteria." Insect Wings Shred Bacteria to Pieces https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/insect-wings-shred-bacteria-to-pieces/ "Lead study author Elena Ivanova of Australia's Swinburne University of Technology in Hawthorne, Victoria, says that she was surprised that the bacterial cells are not actually punctured by the nanopillars. The rupturing effect is more like 'the stretching of an elastic sheet of some kind, such as a latex glove. If you take hold of a piece of latex in both hands and slowly stretch it, it will become thinner at the center, [and] will begin to tear,' she explains." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

What is ANTIMICROBIAL? What does ANTIMICROBIAL mean? ANTIMICROBIAL meaning, definition & explanation
What is ANTIMICROBIAL? What does ANTIMICROBIAL mean? ANTIMICROBIAL meaning - ANTIMICROBIAL pronunciation - ANTIMICROBIAL definition - ANTIMICROBIAL explanation - How to pronounce ANTIMICROBIAL? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license An antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms or inhibits their growth. Antimicrobial medicines can be grouped according to the microorganisms they act primarily against. For example, antibiotics are used against bacteria and antifungals are used against fungi. They can also be classified according to their function. Agents that kill microbes are called microbicidal, while those that merely inhibit their growth are called biostatic. The use of antimicrobial medicines to treat infection is known as antimicrobial chemotherapy, while the use of antimicrobial medicines to prevent infection is known as antimicrobial prophylaxis. The main classes of antimicrobial agents are disinfectants ("nonselective antimicrobials" such as bleach), which kill a wide range of microbes on non-living surfaces to prevent the spread of illness, antiseptics (which are applied to living tissue and help reduce infection during surgery), and antibiotics (which destroy microorganisms within the body). The term "antibiotic" originally described only those formulations derived from living organisms but is now also applied to synthetic antimicrobials, such as the sulphonamides, or fluoroquinolones. The term also used to be restricted to antibacterials (and is often used as a synonym for them by medical professionals and in medical literature), but its context has broadened to include all antimicrobials. Antibacterial agents can be further subdivided into bactericidal agents, which kill bacteria, and bacteriostatic agents, which slow down or stall bacterial growth. Use of substances with antimicrobial properties is known to have been common practice for at least 2000 years. Ancient Egyptians and ancient Greeks used specific molds and plant extracts to treat infection. More recently, microbiologists such as Louis Pasteur and Jules Francois Joubert observed antagonism between some bacteria and discussed the merits of controlling these interactions in medicine. In 1928, Alexander Fleming became the first to discover a natural antimicrobial fungus known as Penicillium rubens. The substance extracted from the fungus he named penicillin and in 1942 it was successfully used to treat a Streptococcus infection. Penicillin also proved successful in the treatment of many other infectious diseases such as gonorrhea, strep throat and pneumonia, which were potentially fatal to patients until then. Many antimicrobial agents exist, for use against a wide range of infectious diseases.

Antibiotics | Biology  for All | FuseSchool
Antibiotics… one of the greatest discoveries of the 20th century. You’ve probably taken them at some point during your life… maybe for a throat or ear infection? About 20 doses of antibiotics are prescribed per 1,000 people every day worldwide. That’s the same as 1 in 50 people every day! So what are Antibiotics? Well it is the name for a group of drugs which are used to treat disease caused by bacteria, and bacteria only. They do not work for anything else, so viruses like colds and the flu can’t be treated with antibiotics. Bacteria are single-celled organisms which can be pathogenic. That means that they can cause disease in humans and animals and antibiotics can be used to treat these diseases. In 1928, Alexander Fleming discovered the very first antibiotic; penicillin.One day after studying influenza he noticed that mould had accidentally developed on a set of petri dishes being used to grow the bacteria called ‘staphylococcus’. The mould had created a bacteria free circle around itself. The mould was the fungus penicillium notatum. Fleming concluded that the bacteria on the plate had been killed off by a substance in the mould. Fleming named this active bacteria-killing substance Penicillin. Other scientists then worked on penicillin further so that it could be produced as a drug, and by the 1940s it was being mass-produced by pharmaceutical companies.So how are antibiotics mass-produced? There are three methods for making antibiotics. Naturally - These are made by other microorganisms, such as fungi and other bacteria, like Fleming discovered.They are grown in huge colonies, where the active substance is then extracted. Synthetic - Some antibiotics can be made completely in the lab. Semi-synthetic - This method takes naturally occurring antibiotics and then uses lab work to add additional amino acids or groups to slightly change and enhance the antibiotic, to create a new type. Penicillin was just the start, we now make over 100 different types of antibiotics against different types of bacteria. So how do antibiotics actually work? Antibiotics affect specific parts of bacterial cells which human cells don’t have, they stop the bacterial infection but don’t harm human cells. This is done in two ways, that antibiotics work: either by stopping the bacteria from reproducing or by killing the bacteria. Antibiotics do this by inhibiting certain metabolic, or chemical, processes which occur inside the bacteria. For example, they can stop protein synthesis, DNA replication or break down their cell wall. This is why they are not useful against viruses, as viruses are not living organisms and so don’t have metabolic processes that the antibiotics can disrupt. This is why it is very important to check whether an infection is caused by a bacterium rather than a virus before attempting to treat it with antibiotics. The discovery of Antibiotic is one of the greatest scientific achievements of the 20th century, and has played a huge role in keeping the public healthy. However, bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics. This is a major public health threat. Antibiotic resistance is happening through natural selection. In a large population of bacteria, due to genetic variation, some of the bacteria have a natural resistance to the antibiotics. These bacteria survive and reproduce, and pass on resistance so that the whole colony become resistant to antibiotics. SUBSCRIBE to the FuseSchool YouTube channel for many more educational videos.

Iodine: Bringing Back the Universal Medicine
Dr. Sircus discusses the history and absolute necessity for iodine in our bodies and why we need to supplement. http://drsircus.com/medicine/iodine/iodine-rescue ***Transcription*** Iodine today is more important than it ever has been and yet we know it´s always been important. Iodine is the oldest allopathic medicine, it´s the first medicine actually that cured specific a disease which is goiter. The governments around the world fifty years ago recognized how important it was and started putting iodine in salt and even in the United States used to put it in bread. And then come some crazy person took it out and put bromide in its place. TEXT - Bromine is a toxic halogen that competitively inhibits iodine in the body. Bromine exposure will cause the body to excrete iodine and lead to iodine deficiency. If we don´t supplement with extra iodine, bromine will continually replace iodine all over all bodies. Even in the thyroid gland, bromine can replace iodine. The consequences of this include increased rates of cancer of the breast, thyroid, ovary, uterus and prostate. Other consequences of increased bromine exposure include autoimmune illnesses such as autoimmune thyroid disorders. Dr. David Brownstein states: “ I have checked hundreds of patients for their bromine levels and I have found elevated bromine levels (with most patients having very high levels) occurring in 100% of patients. “ So, Iodine is very important, for the body, for health. The Japanese eat a lot of Iodine, more than anybody else because of the high consumption of seafood. There are several doctors in the world, I called them the Iodine doctors. Dr. David Brownstein is a friend of mine and he has written a book about Iodine and inspired me to write a book on Iodine, and I subtitle “ Bringing Back the Universal Medicine” because it is very useful for many, many things. It´s essential, we need it, the thyroid needs Iodine to produce thyroid hormones which controls the metabolism of the cells, so it is a very fundamental substance. It is been used forever in hospitals, in emergency rooms as a topical substance to kill viruses, bacteria, fungus, mold, mildew….it basically kills all single cell pathogens very quickly , so I use it instead of antibiotics. TEXT – Antibiotic use is known to inhibit excretion of Mercury. Dr.Marc Lipsitch Only once in all these years I used antibiotic in desperation for one of my children. I have six children and whenever they get sick the first thing I go for is the Iodine, the second thing I go for is the magnesium and the third thing I go for is the sodium bicarbonate. When dealing with flu or cold or anything that moves the body into discomfort, the beginning of any diseases, the beginning of anything. These substances used very quickly can, you can have a cold, and solve the cold, and really avoid going deeply into it. Same with the flu. If you use magnesium chloride orally strongly, the bicarbonate and the Iodine orally you can kind of head off a flu or cold at pass. That is how effective these substances are. If they can save a life, from a person from a heart attack, or magnesium if you inject quick enough when a person is having a stroke, they can avoid all the brain damage. So Iodine is important and can be used in cancer treatment. Dr. Tullio Simoncini has pioneered the use of Iodine topically for skin cancer, he was not aware though that you could really take it orally in high dosages and actually treat cancer internally because Iodine will be on a seek and destroying mission of anything that doesn’t belong in the body. TEXT – Iodine kills 90% of bacteria on the skin in 90 seconds. Iodine exhibits activity against bacteria, molds, yeasts, protozoa, and many viruses. Only Iodine is capable of killing all classes of pathogens: gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, yeasts, and protozoa. It is a broad spectrum killer of pathogens. Some people believe that cancer is a fungus. And there are a lot of good reasons to see and believe that or if you disagree with that to recognize that cancer is usually or very often accompanied by infectious process and late stages infections tend to be fungus. TEXT – “I believe that, conservatively, 15 or 20 percent of all cancer is caused by infections; however, the number could be larger maybe double.” Dr. Andrew Dannenberg Sodium bicarbonate, is a very strong anti fungal, and so is Iodine.

Bacteria and Antibiotics: Revenge of the Microbes
What are bacteria? How do antibiotics work? And what can we do about increasing antibiotic resistance? Jenny Rohn, scientist and novelist, investigates the fascinating world of bacteria in this Friday Evening Discourse event from the Ri. Subscribe for regular science videos: http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe Bacteria are our ancient enemies, evolving ever more clever ways of outmanoeuvring our natural defences and scientific technologies. For millennia, a simple cut or cough could kill. With the development of antibiotics, it seemed we would reign supreme. But now the bacteria are again gaining ground. With antibiotic resistance on the rise, and the development of new drugs having stagnated for decades, we humans might be in a lot of trouble very soon. Why are bacteria so insidious, what tricks do they employ to get the upper hand, and what can we do to stop them? Join Dr Jenny Rohn to explore these questions. Dr Jenny Rohn received a BA in Biology from Oberlin College, Ohio, where she developed an interest in viruses and cancer before moving to the University of Washington for her PhD research into the evolution of feline leukaemia virus. After working as a researcher at Cancer Research UK and working in the biotechology industry in The Netherlands, Jenny gained a Wellcome Trust fellowship to study cell shape and architecture at University College London. She is now head of a cell biology lab where she studies how the cells of our body interact with invading bacteria. This event took place at the Royal Institution on Friday 30 January.

Battling antibiotic resistance
Researchers throughout the world are working at a frenetic pace to win the war against antibiotic resistance. Without effective antibiotics or other ways of neutralizing or killing pathogenic bacteria, we face the risk of dying of common infections. Modern medical care, including cancer treatment, transplants and other surgery, is also entirely dependent on the availability of antibiotics that work. Meet some of the people in Sweden on the front line of the battle: Dan Andersson at Uppsala University, who is developing new, faster and more accurate analytical methods; researchers at Umeå University, who are trying to neutralize bacteria in various ways and find new approaches; Felipe Cava, who is studying the cell walls of bacteria; Maria Fällman, who is studying bacterial defense mechanisms; Fredrik Almqvist, Jörgen Johansson and Elisabet Sauer Eriksson, who want to create new molecules to act as homing missiles; and Birgitta Henriques Normark at Karolinska Institutet, who is searching for substances that can be used to develop new antibiotics.

If you are on well water or are drawing water from a lake or river you need to make sure that your water is bacteria free. If there is bacteria in your water your family and guests will get sick! An Ultra Violet Disinfection Systems is often preferred for this type of application because it is a chemical free process, but how does it work. A great example is a 3 stage Ultra Violet Disinfection system. This type of system incorporates some pre filtration to make sure the Ultra Violet light can do its job effectively. The first stage consists of a 5 micron sediment pre filter to make sure that no particles larger than 5 microns get to the Ultra Violet Light as particles of that size or larger could shield the bacteria and prevent the Ultra Violet light from killing it. The second stage is a carbon taste and odour filter to improve the taste of the water while absorbing odours, but more importantly, this also absorbs chemicals form the water. Chemicals like herbicides, pesticides, gasoline and benzene must be removed from your water before you consider drinking it. After the sediment and chemicals have been removed from the water it is now ready to pass over the Ultra Violet Light itself. Much like the sun the Ultra Violet light kills the bacteria as the water passes through its chamber. The Ultra Violet light bulb needs to be changed every year as it loses its ability to kill bacteria after 12 months. The carbon filter usually lasts 12 months and the sediment pre filters' life is highly dependent on how much sediment there is in your water, but must be changed at least every 12 months.

Would you take antibiotic if you catch cold?
What is an antibiotic? A drug used to treat or prevent bacterial infections. How it works? Antibiotics either kill the bacteria or not allowing them to grow more inside our body. When antibiotic was first discovered? In 1928, penicillin, the first true antibiotic, was discovered by Alexander Fleming, Professor of Bacteriology at St. Mary's Hospital in London. Penicllin is a substance produced by fungi that able to inhibit bacterial growth. Are there any different types of Antibiotics available? Yes. Some antibiotics work on many different kinds of bacteria. They are called “broad-spectrum.” Some antibiotics target specific bacteria only and they are called as “narrow-spectrum” antibiotics. Ampicillin, Amoxicillin, tetracycline are some of broad-spectrum agents effective against a wide variety of bacteria. penicillins (penG), the macrolides and vancomycin are some of the narrow spectrum antibiotics. How actually antibiotics work in our body? When you take an antibiotic, it enters your bloodstream and travels through your body, killing bacteria. As we seen there are many groups of antibiotics available. We will see few of them how it works? The Beta-lactam group antibiotics kill bacteria that are surrounded by a cell wall. Bacteria build cell walls by linking molecules together—beta-lactams block this process. Without support from a cell wall, pressure inside the bacterial cell becomes too much and the membrane bursts. Macrolides type of antibiotics affects the ribosomes of bacteria, by which block bacterial ribosomes and prevent them from building proteins. Since proteins necessary for survival of bacteria, a bacterium that cannot build proteins cannot survive. Quinolones type of antibiotics works in the bacteria when they begin to copy their DNA, quinolones cause the strands to break and then prevent the breaks from being repaired. Without intact DNA, bacteria cannot live or reproduce. These are some of the mechanism of action of antibiotics. All right, what are the common disease causes by bacteria in our body? Tuberculosis, cholera, typhoid, Diptheria, Leprosy ,Pertussis, Tetanus , Plague, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis are some examples of bacterial disease. What happens when we take too much of antibiotics? Well. Overuse of antibiotic leads to antibacterial resistance and also affect some of good bacteria in our body. Now, we will come to our question what we have asked in the beginning. Assume that if you catch a cold and somebody would recommend you to take an antibiotic. Would you say yes or no? Well, if your answer is “No”, then it is correct. Because, cold or -common cold is a viral upper respiratory tract infection, not a bacterial infection. Thanks for watching!! ----------------------------------

How can vaccines help beat superbugs?
Antimicrobials, such as antibiotics, helps us to fight serious bacterial illnesses ranging from sore throats and urinary tract infections to pneumonia and meningitis. They do this by killing or limiting the growth of bacteria and viruses. We have relied on antimicrobials for decades. But today their power to cure us is under threat. Some bacteria have developed resistance to antimicrobials, making it harder to treat the infections they cause. This is known as antimicrobial resistance – or A M R. In Europe, these so-called ‘superbugs’ kill 25,000 thousand people every year and put enormous pressure on our health systems. Experts are working hard to find solutions to this urgent public health challenge. Vaccines can help in a number of ways. For a start, vaccines prevent infections and reduce the need for hospitalisation. Overuse of antimicrobials increases the risk of AMR. Vaccines can reduce the need for using antimicrobials by reducing the rate of infectious disease. For example, the use of pneumococcal vaccines has reduced the number of AMR-related pneumococcal diseases, and the HiB vaccine has virtually eliminated AMR infection caused by H. influenzae type b. Even vaccines which prevent viral infections, like the flu, can indirectly reduce the use of antimicrobials. This is because antibiotics are sometimes needed to treat bacterial complications of viral illnesses. And vaccines could help fight superbugs in another way: researchers are working on new vaccines that would make us immune to superbug infection. MRSA, Tuberculosis and gonorrhoea are just some of the bacteria targeted by scientists. In the meantime, making the best use of the vaccines we have today can help ensure our existing antimicrobials remain effective in the future.

What Does Antimicrobial Mean?
What does Antimicrobial mean? http://cladding.co.uk/case-studies/what-does-antimicrobial-mean How do Antimicrobial Additives Work? How does antimicrobial cladding work? How do antimicrobial products work? A material known as silver ion is the technology that provides the main benefit that antimicrobial products use in the fight against harmful bacteria. It's not just used in PVC wall linings but products where human contact is made such as light switches, door handles, hand dryers and many more products are available with this technology. Step 1: Bacteria contaminate a surface Step 2: Silver ions are available to act against contaminating bacteria Step 3: Silver ions act against bacteria: They combine with bacterial proteins in the cell and cell wall, interfere with DNA replication, and promote formation of reactive oxygen species. Step 4: Bacteria die, the wall is cleaner and more hygienic to use. Silver itself is an inert product that will last until it's either destroyed or removed. What is the difference between antibacterial & antimicrobial? Antimicrobial and antibacterial are interchangeable in many cases, however antimicrobial offers further protection by eliminating fungi thus meaning any mould and mould build up is almost completely eliminated. Antimicrobial is an additional line of defense beyond antibacterial. An antimicrobial substance is one that kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms, fungi, or protozoans as well as bacteria. Antimicrobial products and surfaces have been utilised in a number of different locations but are most frequently found within healthcare and food preparation environments in an effort to reduce infection & contamination. Perhaps the most popular antimicrobial is silver. Silver ions have been observed reacting with the thiol group in enzymes to inactivate them. Silver ions have also been shown to interact with bacterial DNA and prevent replication, effectively neutralizing the strain. The Benefits of using an antimicrobial So what are the Benefits of using an antimicrobial? Silver based additives for PVC provide excellent antimicrobial and antibacterial performance and give plastics and polymers bacterial protection from: Bacteria • Acinetobacter baumanii • Bacillus subtilis • Campylobacter coli • Campylobacter jejuni • Clostridium difficile • E.coli • E.coli O157 • Enterobacter aerogenes • Enterococcus faecalis • Escherichia coli ESBL • Legionella pneumophila • Listeria monocytogenes • MRSA • Pseudomonas aeruginosa • Salmonella enteritidis • Salmonella typhimurium • Shigella sp. • Staph aureus • Staph epidermidis • Streptococcus faecalis • Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus Fungi • Aspergillus niger • Aspergillus brasiliensis • Candida albicans • Penicillium sp.

Oil Of Oregano Healing Harmony For Entire Body, Candida, Cancer, Viral, Bacteria, Sickness, Disease
Oregano oil is high in phenols, which are natural phytochemical compounds with beneficial antioxidant effects. The two most abundant phenols in it are:Thymol - a natural fungicide with antiseptic properties. It helps boost your immune system, works as a shield against toxins, and even helps prevent tissue damage and encourages healing. Carvacrol – found to be effective against various bacterial infections, such as candida albicans, staphylococcus, E. coli, campylobacter, salmonella, klebsiella, the aspergillus mold, giardia, pseudomonas, and listeria.Other healthful compounds in oregano oil include: Terpenes – known for their powerful antibacterial properties. Rosmarinic acid – an antioxidant that prevents free radical damage and has shown promise in treating allergic asthma and preventing cancer and atherosclerosis. It also works as a natural antihistamine that reduces fluid buildup and swelling caused by allergy attacks. Naringin - inhibits the growth of cancer cells and helps boost the antioxidants in oregano oil. Beta-caryophyllin (E-BCP) - this substance inhibits inflammation and is also beneficial for conditions including osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis, as well as metabolic syndrome. Nutrients like vitamins A, C, and E, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, manganese, copper, boron, and niacin are also found in oregano oil. ~Benefits of Oregano Oil~Oregano oil has wide-reaching health benefits, but is most associated with respiratory and immune system health. It is known for helping prevent and treat infections, such as:Urinary tract infections (UTIs) caused by bacteria like E. coli, Proteus,and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. ~ Respiratory infections brought on by Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria strains.~ Yeast infections, even those that are resistant to the commonly used antifungal drug Diflucan. ~ Parasitic infections caused by the amoeba giardia – it was even found to be more effective than antibiotics like Tinidazol.~ Oregano oil has strong antibacterial properties that can kill this deadly superbug. Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection – A team of Indian and British researchers found that oregano oil has strong antibacterial properties that can kill this deadly superbug. Oils like Oregano are strong and need to be diluted in a base of coconut oil or jojoba, Oregano is spicy, hot to some even especially if the liver is toxic. We need to use extreme caution with oils like oregano, and it is not recommended for pregnant women, or children under six. One needs to learn how oils resonate, before learning to benefit, as they very well have the capability to cross the blood-brain barrier, in my opinion after the liver is detoxified. My videos are not instructional, and make no claims to treat or diagnose, this is my sharing my passion, and knowledge and opinions, as well as factual researched information. Use extreme caution with oregano oil, I can not stress this enough, and check with your medical adviser if you take prescriptions before learning to benefit from the divine oil of oregano. Please stay tuned, because I did not cover it all, I could probably do three videos on Oil of oregano, and may in fact just do so. It is good for all conditions, cancer, MS, Seizures, in my opinion, and I will do videos on those. Oregano Rids candida, and is anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, I mean, come on, it does not get much better than that. Also learn to juice the oregano along with combining the oils for total body harmony, and I failed to mention this in the video which is why it will also get a part 2. Thank you! Peace and Love to you ALL!!! Thank you for your loving support and kind comments. If I am slow to respond to comments, I apologize, but I WILL RESPOND, especially if there is a need. Please also reach me through www.facebook.com/juicerelovution and Join the Juice Revolution to learn to detoxify the body. Also, www.facebook.com/eohealing is the Essential Oil Healing page, if anyone cares to join that as well. I can be reached through both of those pages, but It may take time to reply, so I apologize for this.Guys, the Key to longevity is to DETOX the LIVER, this is key to total body harmony, Restore the Intestinal Flora, and detox the liver and your other organs will follow, Oils like Oregano will WORK, in my opinion at the CELLULAR DNA repairing level after the body is in more harmony. I ALSO failed to mention the other type of Oregano I find beneficial which is Oreiganum Compactum, and I only mentioned two in this video but there are others, but Many are simply NOT effective that are store bought, They do not contain the right variety of oregano and these WILL NOT be beneficial and can in fact do harm to the body, So purchase from a reputable source... Thanks again for listening, and reading. Appreciate you all!

Why we should STOP using antibacterial soaps!
We may think that antibacterial washes are more effective at preventing the spread of germs. But that’s not the case. But FDA just banned all antibacterials from soaps. "We have no scientific evidence that they are any better than plain soap and water," said Dr. Janet Woodcock, the Food and Drug Administration' drug center director. "In fact, some data suggests that antibacterial ingredients may do more harm than good over the long-term.” Research suggests that two ingredients used in antibacterial soaps — triclosan and triclocarban can interfere with hormone levels, disrupt muscle function and stimulate drug-resistant bacteria. And although the chemical kills bacteria by breaking open their cell walls, the process takes up to nine hours—so it is ineffective when simply washing hands. The FDA decision does not apply to hand sanitizers, most of which use alcohol rather than antibacterial chemicals.

Nature’s Best Antibiotic: How to Use Horseradish instead of Antibiotics
https://livingtraditionally.com/natures-best-antibiotic-use-horseradish-instead-antibiotics/ Nature’s Best Antibiotic: How to Use Horseradish instead of Antibiotics Taking natural antibiotics instead of, or in addition to, prescription antibiotics can help fight bacterial infection and prevent disease. There are many types of natural antibiotics, including live natural bacteria found in the body, as well as various vitamins, herbs and plants. Natural antibiotics can be useful in fighting infection without the risk of your body developing resistance. Antibiotics should really be a last resort when you are feeling unwell, and the misuse of them is leading to more and more bugs becoming resistant to antibiotics. These “superbugs”, such as MRSA, are very difficult to treat, and according to Margaret Chan, Director-General of WHO, “the rise of antibiotic resistance is a global health crisis. It is reaching dangerously high levels in all parts of the world.” Raw horseradish has long been used for its medicinal properties, with its healing components being thought to ease colds, coughs, kidney stones and even urinary tract infections (UTIs), according to Dr. John Christopher’s Herbal Legacy. Horseradish Health Benefits The primary ingredient of the horseradish plant is its thick white roots, which, when sliced, release enzymes that break down a compound called sinigrin. This in turn triggers the release of mustard oil, which produces the pungent smell and taste that horseradish is known for. Horseradish contains a volatile oil called sinigrin, which is broken down in the body to produce allyl isothiocyanate – a powerful natural antibiotic. Horseradish contains mustard oil and the presence of allyl isothiocyanate gives it the antibacterial punch. Horseradish is also a powerhouse of vitamin C – raw, it contains 79.31 mg of vitamin C per 100g. It is high in many essential minerals and other health-promoting substances, including calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, glutamine, glucose, acid sulfate and essential oils. Its effectiveness at treating various conditions has led to it being a commonly used natural medicine in Germany as part of a formulation called Angocin Anti-Infekt N. Several studies have shown that this medication is very effective at treating both UTIs and respiratory infections. How to Use Horseradish Instead of Antibiotics According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, a leading health expert and physician, there are certain ways you should eat horseradish to unlock full benefits. “It’s important to remember that heating horseradish can significantly alter the strength of the many healing compounds it contains, so eating it raw is recommended,” Mercola explains. Horseradish may help with the following symptoms, according to the Baseline of Health Foundation: • Respiratory problems • Gout • Sciatic nerve pain • Dandruff • Cancer • Edema (water retention) • Coughs, colds and asthma • Skin blemishes and dandruff • Gallbladder disorders • Intestinal parasites • Colic • Headaches Horseradish powerful concoction Ingredients: 1 large horseradish root (6 inches) 1 lemon 1 tablespoon honey (preferably raw, organic). Grate fresh horseradish. Mix with lemon juice and honey and put into a jar. Seal the jar with an airtight lid and leave for 24 hours. Take 1 tablespoon of this powerful mixture 3 to 4 times per day. Don’t dilute with water. If it burns your throat and sinuses, this is a good indication that it’s working.

Antibiotic resistance/কথায় কথায় এন্টিবায়োটিক নয়
Antibiotic resistance occurs when an antibiotic has lost its ability to effectively control or kill bacterial growth; in other words, the bacteria are "resistant" and continue to multiply in the presence of therapeutic levels of an antibiotic... 17th June 2013 With the discovery of antimicrobials in the 1940s, scientists prophesied the defeat of infectious diseases that had plagued humankind throughout history. However, the remarkable healing power of antibiotics invites widespread and often inappropriate use. This misuse and overuse of antibiotics leads to antibiotic resistance among bacteria and consequent treatment complications and increased healthcare costs. Antimicrobial resistance has cast a shadow over the medical miracles we take for granted, undermining every clinical and public health program designed to contain infectious diseases worldwide. Limited access to medical care and effective treatments, the common practice of self-medication, and the availability of counterfeit drugs have exacerbated drug resistance in the developing world. In affluent nations, infections acquired in settings such as hospitals and nursing homes are a major source of illness and death. In addition, community-acquired infections are emerging, both as independent epidemics and as primary sources of resistance in hospitals. If resistance to treatment continues to spread, our interconnected, high-tech world may find itself back in the dark ages of medicine, before today's miracle drugs ever existed.
Stomach bacteria: Titanium micromotors deliver antibiotic without proton pump inhibitors - TomoNews
SAN DIEGO — Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed micromotors loaded with antibiotics that can treat stomach infections without the use of proton pump inhibitors, a substance used to suppress gastric acid production. Drugs used to treat bacterial infections and other diseases in the stomach are normally taken with proton pump inhibitors. However, the substance can cause adverse side effects such as diarrhea and fatigue or even depression when taken over longer period of in high doses. "It's a one-step treatment with these micromotors, combining acid neutralization with therapeutic action," said Berta Esteban-Fernández de Ávila, a postdoctoral scholar at UC San Diego and a co-first author of the study. According to the study, each micromotor has a magnesium core coated with a layer of titanium dioxide, antibiotic and an outer layer of chitosan, which is a polymer that enables the motors to stick to the stomach wall. The size of each micromotor is about half the width of human hair. Once inside the stomach, the magnesium core reacts with gastric acid which generates a stream of hydrogen microbubbles. The microbubbles propel the vehicles inside the stomach, as well as temporarily increase the pH level to a desired level to release the cargo of antibiotics. The micromotors can be dissolved by gastric acid without leaving harmful residues. The study was published in the journal Nature Communications. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Beating the Superbugs - avoiding an antibiotic apocalypse
Resistant bugs are killing 25,000 people a year across Europe - almost the same number of people die in road traffic accidents. As bacteria continue to develop resistance and the flow of new antibiotics is diminishing, there is now a real threat to human health. To help better understand these challenges and how they can be addressed, the Royal Society of Chemistry hosted a panel discussion. Some of the key issues explored were: Overcoming the scientific barriers in researching new antibiotics. How do we find new treatments that kill the bugs without killing the patients? Ensuring the conservation and appropriate use of antibiotic drugs Ensuring the research and development of new antimicrobials is financially viable for those investing in the drug discovery pipeline Tackling this issue on a global scale through global surveillance and monitoring The discussion was chaired by science journalist and TV presenter, Dr Michael Mosely, and panellists included: Introduction video: Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer, England Dr Nicholas Brown, President of the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC), which set up and oversees the 'Antibiotic Action' initiative Professor Barry Cookson, Honorary Professor at University College London and former Director of the Laboratory of Healthcare Associated Infection (HCAI) 1990-2012 Professor Chris Schofield, Head of Organic Chemistry at the University of Oxford and researcher in developing new antibiotics This event took place on 18 November 2013.
