End of the Road for Antibiotics

Beginning back in the 1990s, “experts” have been warning about the inevitable failure of antibiotics as a low risk treatment for infection. Then in 2012 Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) began to give her warnings that antibiotics were becoming more and more ineffective for certain diseases and infections, and worse, actually triggering some superbugs. In October 2015, addressing the G7 Health Ministries Meeting, Chan stated:

“The rise of antimicrobial [antibiotic] resistance is a global health crisis. Medicine is losing more and more mainstay antimicrobials [antibiotics] as pathogens develop resistance. Second-line treatments are less effective, more costly, more toxic, and sometimes extremely difficult to administer…

Superbugs haunt hospitals and intensive care units all around the world. Gonorrhoea is now resistant to multiple classes of drugs. An epidemic of multidrug-resistant typhoid fever is rolling across parts of Asia and Africa. Even with the best of care, only around half of all cases of multidrug- resistant tuberculosis can be successfully cured. With few replacement products in the pipeline, the world is heading towards a post-antibiotic era in which common infections will once again kill.

 

This will be the end of modern medicine as we know it. If current trends continue, sophisticated interventions, like organ transplantation, joint replacements, cancer chemotherapy, and care of pre-term infants, will become more difficult or even too dangerous to undertake.”

"Things as common as strep throat or a child's scratched knee could once again kill!" [Or even an insect bite like the one above]


Are you worried?

 

You may have caught the news headline (May 27, 2016) of the first U.S. case of complete antibiotic resistance even to Colistin, considered the last resort in the antibiotic treatment of dangerous “superbugs”. The case involved a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman with a urinary tract infection, who had not traveled within the prior five months. The Director for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Tom Frieden prophesied:

“It basically shows us that the end of the road isn’t very far away for antibiotics — that we may be in a situation where we have patients in our intensive care units, or patients getting urinary-tract infections for which we do not have antibiotics…I’ve been there for TB patients. I’ve cared for patients for whom there are no drugs left. It is a feeling of such horror and helplessness.”

"It is dangerous and we would assume it can be spread quickly, even in a hospital environment if it is not well contained," said Dr. Gail Cassell, a microbiologist and senior lecturer at Harvard Medical School.

In the United States, hospital born infections add up to over 2 million cases annually (3 per minute) and accounted for 80,000 deaths in 2000, and now up to 110,000 deaths (12.6 deaths per hour)

Are you worried now? Like Tom Frieden, will you throw your hands up in the air and cry, “The sky is falling, the sky is falling!”

What was once the song and dance of the healthcare industry has become its funeral dirge. Who is to blame for the inevitable demise of the once praised miracle drug? Firstly doctors, then hospitals, for over prescribing antibiotics 30% of the time, and also the animal feed industry. Now they are singing the eulogy, not only for the loss of a chief line of treatment of infections, but also a significant part of their income - which may explain why the CDC considers it the most misprescribed drug in America? Why do they carry a warning on the CDC website telling doctors not to use antibiotics to treat viral infections? Surely all doctors know antibiotics have no effect on viral infections of any kind. How is it that healthcare “professionals” need to be educated by the CDC not to use antibiotics for viral infections? Why do people naively continue to place their confidence in those doctors who can so easily be bought for the price of a free meal?

The antibiotic resistant bacteria that made the headlines was first seen in pigs in China. Now it has been found in pigs in America. The USDA & NIH reported that testing of hundreds of livestock and retail meats turned up the same colistin-resistant bacteria in a sample from a pig intestine in the United States. The USDA assures us it is working to identify the farm the pig came from.

Now you are worried, right?

While this case is tied to a particular strain of E. coli bacteria that carries the antibiotic resistant gene mcr-1, how is it that the Directors of the WHO and CDC do not know that it has long been proven that many dangerous bacteria do not thrive in the presence of charcoal. In fact, activated charcoal not only adsorbs the toxins and endotoxins associated with certain deadly microbes, it can also incapacitate them by “magnetizing” them to their surface. This is not new science.

According to a joint research team from Japan’s University of Osaka Prefecture and Okayama University, refined activated charcoal has been found to be able to absorb the O157:H7 strain of E. coli bacteria and its toxin that causes food poisoning. (Food & Drink Weekly, Oct 9, 2000) Again:

“Charcoal effectively adsorbs the toxins that are released on infection from diphtheria, tetanus, and dysentery bacteria. In one study a 10% solution of diphtheria toxin was exposed to charcoal for one hour. The clear liquid was then injected under the skin of a guinea pig. There were no adverse effects at all. But the control animal died within forty-eight hours when give only 1% as much toxin.

Similar results were obtained with tetanus and dysentery toxins. Researchers have also demonstrated unmistakable evidence that activated charcoal prevents the expected toxic effects of endotoxins normally released by Vibrio cholerae and Escherica coli. Once again, science has verified in the lab what the eclectic health worker has already discovered in the field. Namely, that charcoal, in conjunction with established nursing practices, should be, in certain cases, a preferred remedy in emergency or primary care.” CharcoalRemedies.com The Complete Handbook p. 166


Classic Antibiotic Failure in a Hospital

Here is a case of IV antibiotic failure in a hospital and the miraculous results when charcoal was substituted.

This man is in a hospital in Nepal. He developed an infection from a simple insect bite that progressed to a massive skin wound on his left chest with a penetrating opening through the ribs to where you could actually see his heart beating. Dr. Frank (MD), a visiting physician from America, taught the staff how to spread activated charcoal jelly on the wound and cover with wet gauze twice daily to adsorb the bacteria and toxins. This man had been on IV antibiotics and continued to worsen for about 3 months in the hospital, until the staff were taught how to apply charcoal. On his return six months later, the Medical Director of the hospital told Dr Frank that the patient had rapidly cleared within about six weeks, with closing of the wound and return to his home village. Talk about miraculous. At no time in their history have antibiotics ever achieved such dramatic results. Meanwhile...

Some drug experts are crying, "We may soon be facing a world where CRE [super bacteria] infections are untreatable." (Lance Price, director of the Antibiotic Resistance Action Center and a George Washington University professor), and that we are at the “cliff’s edge” of the “abyss that lies before us”. Meanwhile the eclectic health minded individual is not left without hope. Along with charcoal, there are many simple and natural products of nature that are safe and can effectively treat bacterial infections, and are both affordable and available somewhere within reach. You do not have to be wealthy to be healthy!

For example, activated charcoal works well, in conjunction with some simple hydrotherapy, for the treatment of cellulitis. But so will steamed cabbage leaves. Activated charcoal has often been used to manage infected wounds, but so has tree resin.  Charcoal is part of the protocol in the German army for treating second degree burn infections, but the doctors who traveled with Alexander the Great on his military campaigns used the aloe vera plant…

On the other hand, drugs are all toxic to one degree or another, including antibiotics, and they are expensive (so says WHO Director Margaret Chan) and one is tempted to believe you do have to be wealthy to be healthy. What are we to do?


Infection Prevention

  • Prevention: In 1849, Lord Palmerston, prime minister of England, was petitioned by the Scottish clergy to appoint a day of fasting and prayer to avert the cholera. He replied, in effect: “Cleanse and disinfect your streets and houses, promote cleanliness and health among the poor, and see that they are plentifully supplied with good food and raiment, and employ right sanitary measures generally, and you will have no occasion to fast and pray. Nor will the Lord hear your prayers while these, His preventives, remain unheeded.”
  • Sanitation: Practice good hygiene. Arguably, all the health advantages that western countries boast are not from drugs and hospitals, but from rigid municipal sanitation practices. Clean running water (chlorinated for anything more than a private well), clean outdoor toilets, a private septic system, or an engineered sewer system, are an absolute priority.
  • Toilets Before Temples: Current Prime Minster Narendra Modi of India stated that one of his main priorities was “Toilets before Temples”. Not more drugs and bigger hospitals, and not more prayers to God. I am reminded of that poem, "A Fence or an Ambulance"
  • Dysentery: What can you do when you are in the heart of Africa and you are trying to help the 900 plus inmates of a prison who are all suffering from dysentery and they have little to no access to any form of medicine? Do you give up? Not if you know how to take common lump cooking charcoal and turn it into a powerful medicine that begins to work in minutes. What happens after one week and all the prison is free of dysentery including the guards and warden? You get an open door invitation from the Minister in charge of all the prisons in the country. Now what do you do? Of course! you teach the inmates how to make their own medicinal charcoal.
  • Unclean Animals: It should be no mystery why the Bible identifies some animals and sea creatures as “unclean” (Leviticus Chapter 11) or, unfit for food. Even if they are pampered and pedicured, some animals are just filthy pigs at heart. Having a pink ribbon on their head won’t stop them from sucking up their own vomit. So as a first line of defense, don’t feast on the corpses of “unclean” animals. But, after watching a few online videos of meat processing operations, and in light of livestock feeds saturated with steroids and antibiotics from agribusiness practices, you may also want to stop eating souped-up vegetarians.
  • Globalism: The “Global Village” is big on idealism, but short on common sense. The “One World Order” and “Common Market” bureaucrats insist that being part of the family means you have to take the good with the bad, and the ugly. While we may have no say in the direction society is taking, we can do much to protect ourselves from sharing the plagues of society. For example, many are legitimately afraid of Vaccines for themselves and especially for their children.
  • Vaccines: Drug companies realizing their antibiotic cash cow is about to fall off the cliff, are madly concocting a plethora of vaccines to fill the antibiotic abyss. The powers that be then threaten informed parents with school restrictions if their children are not inoculated with a cocktail of lethal adjuvants. If that fails they may abduct their children and vaccinate them anyway.  Along with the silver and gold, what do public and private schools actually offer? Increased exposure to the moral vacuum of society, STDs, flu epidemics, drug addictions… Conscientious parents have to weigh what they perceive the benefits are of school, church, sports events, shopping malls when it comes to exposing themselves and their children to the spread of more and more lethal diseases.
  • Out of the cities: Escaping the mega concentration camps to a small town, a little quiet space, country living, growing some of your own “organic” food, may sound beyond idealistic, but it is not - millions have done it. Pray about it. As one foul mouthed lawyer told me, “If you pray, you are thinking, and if you’re thinking you can solve your own problems.” Stay focused. Ask yourself, why you want better health. Research suggests, the higher your altruistic motives for lifestyle change are above the lonely self, the more likely the success. For example, if you are thinking to sacrifice the miasma of city life and move to a rural setting for just yourself, you likely will not be as successful as if you did it primarily for your children’s well being, or so you could invite out other city dwellers who need R & R, or … for fellowship with God.


Treating drug resistant disease and infection Naturally

  • Drug Poisons: All drugs are pharmacologically classed as toxic to the body. They all have a bite and a sting. That is why, worldwide, most medical and drug associations use a snake and/or the cup of poison for their logo.
  • God Remedies: Begin experimenting with God’s true remedies. How do I define a God remedy? “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.” (Proverbs 10:22) That means no long list of adverse side effects. That is, it is not a poison that, “At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.” (Proverbs 23:32)
  • ACC Plus: For bad infections, including MRSA and necrotizing fasciitis (I have had it), activated charcoal poultices, and especially Activated Carbon Cloth (ACC) wound dressings can begin to work within minutes.

The Sky Is Not Falling!
For all society’s worship of man’s science, the truth is science is infected with its own autoimmune disease. For all the scientific hype and boasting, Nature’s scales are tipped beyond the point of a remedy. It is worth taking note that Jesus, looking down the stream of man's history, pointed out both an increase in frequency and intensity of calamities and especially health plagues. (Matthew chapter 24) Is it mere coincidence that the last book of the Bible, Revelation, also speaks about untreatable boils during the last worldwide pandemic? (chapter 16)

Doom and gloom prophets like Chan, Frieden, and Price have good reason to cry out, “global crisis”, “the end of modern medicine”, the “end of the road”, the “cliff”, the hopeless “abyss”. And while they serve an invaluable service of warning to the general public, they offer no viable or safe options. The Bible prophet Isaiah warned the people, to trust in atheistic Egypt (and her drug sorceries) would be as comforting as leaning on a pointed stick (Isaiah 36:6) But there is One today who not only warns about future calamities, He still anoints the leaves from the tree of life with true healing. Herbs, hydrotherapy, light therapy, and medicinal charcoal, in the hands of My 8 Doctors, still work miracles in the 21st century.
