BBC News - New 'superbug' found in UK hospitals

BBC News - New 'superbug' found in UK hospitals: "- Sent using Google Toolbar"

People I meet seem to be in denial over the growing ineffectiveness of antibiotics. Here is mainstream headline news that says there are no antibiotics to fight this new strain of bacteria.

Even if antibiotics (meaning "against life") work they destroy all the good bacteria in the intestinal system. This opens the door for even more bad bacteria to take hold leading to a vicious cycle of antibiotics and decreased function.

The reason you get sick and others don't is that your immune system is not functioning up to par. This could be due to taking too many antibiotics over time, excess stress, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, poor diet (sugar, artificial sweeteners, processed foods, etc.), and not enough water.

So if you're chronically depleted and deprived of sleep, proper nutrients, and exercise, your immune system will struggle to function properly. This is when the opportunistic bugs, which are always around, get to act up and make you ill.

You're better off building your immune system by doing everything opposite of the items I mentioned which break down the immune system. And one more thing, take a good probiotic (for life) which will recolonize your gut with "good" bugs.

By the way your intestinal system contains 80% of your immune system and also produces hormones like serotonin.

Be well,

Dr. Rosenberg :)
