FIGHTING INFECTION NATURALLY IN THE POST-ANTIBIOTIC ERA

FIGHTING INFECTION NATURALLY IN THE POST-ANTIBIOTIC ERA: SALUTE DR IGNAZ SEMMELWEIS

TRIBUTE:  to pioneer  Dr Ignaz Semmelweis martyred 150years ago by his jealous Viennese colleagues for shaming them by  saving  mothers’  lives with good hand hygiene- chlorine disinfection-  from childbirth fever  .

At no time in the past century of synthetics has natural infection control been more important; up to WW1 and the 1918-19 Influenza pandemic, infection killed more more armies of men than warfare itself.

Now  one  in three deaths in “western”  hospitals are  attributed to hospital-acquired antimicrobial  resistant bacterial (eg MRSA, MTB),  fungal  and now vital (eg HIV) infection;

and antivirals and vaccines anything but  eradicate serious HIV, flu, HSV, HPV, ebola, malaria, hepatitis, CMV,  etc.

Because of antibiotic harms, we increasingly have to advise patients against antibiotics for non-purulent respiratory- ENT, skin, gastrointestinal and genitourinary  infections since these are so often viral/ allergic.

But (apart from good hygiene),  given clean food, water and sanitation, the low-cost umbrella of proven safe natural immune boosters can at least halve infection rates, severity and thus deaths.
