The Search for Antibiotics

December 12, 2018

Antibiotic resistance continues to be a growing problem. As with almost all health issues, those most affected are those with weakened immune systems—especially hospital patients, people with chronic health conditions (asthma, for example). Researchers the world over are getting creative as they look for new sources. The latest promising research is looking at wasp venom!

With a few modifications researchers have managed to create a wasp venom based antibiotic that leaves human cells alone and quickly clears even the most deadly bacteria—at least in mice! While time will tell, it’s a promising lead.

Other researchers are “mining” for antibiotics in unusual places, like the bottom of lakes, caves, etc , hoping to find a fungus or virus that can fight the extra strength bacteria our years of antibiotic misuse has created.

Of course, colloidal silver (often in the form of slightly modified nano silver to make it patentable) is also being used by modern medicine. Colloidal silver has been used for centuries to fight not just bacteria but viruses, fungi, amoeba, and and other pathogens—while cost made it fall out of favor when fungus based antibiotics were discovered, it’s being used to combat hep c, and as a disinfectant coating on everything from catheters to curtains, walls, and more. Your local gym or daycare may even get sprayed with it quarterly to stop the spread of disease.

You can take colloidal silver as a daily supplement, as a safe alternative for your neti pot or nebulizer, or just as a boost for your immune system. It’s easy health support that’s available now.
