NATURAL & TRADITIONAL REMEDIES FOR COLD & FLUOZ Health Admin
ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IN A NUTSHELL
Antibiotics have long been regarded as a miracle of modern medicine, helping to prevent and treat many dangerous bacterial infections. However, decades of overuse have resulted in the bacteria they are designed to kill, starting to become ‘resistant’ to the effects of the antibiotics. This means that bacterial infections are becoming harder to treat and that, in the future, antibiotics may not work at all.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
Healthcare practitioners and doctors are insistent that we all need to try and avoid taking antibiotics unless they are absolutely necessary.
This is because statistics show up to 50% of prescriptions for antibiotics are given for infections like the common cold, which is a viral infection and would not be helped by antibiotics. Thus, the call to see a pharmacist rather than a doctor if you are suffering with cold and flu type symptoms.
HELPING YOURSELF NATURALLY
The good news is that there are a wide range of natural and traditional remedies which could be used to relieve cold and flu symptoms.
