How Do Antibiotics Work? – Alternatives To Antibiotics


Have you ever wondered about antibiotics?
Are there alternatives? Why are they so commonly prescribed? Are there
natural alternatives? This is Dr. Jason west coming at you
with a hundred and two years of healing and we’re going to talk about
antibiotics and how to help your immune system without antibiotics. Check it out. So this is about antibiotic alternatives
and so this video is about antibiotics, are you tired of taking antibiotic,s are
you suffering from an antibiotic side effect, is your antibiotic not working,
and then this video is for you and after watching the video what you should have
is to know what an antibiotic is, the benefits and problems with antibiotic
therapy, and a couple alternatives to antibiotics. Now the definition of an
antibiotic is any substance that inhibits the growth and replication of a
bacterium or kills it outright can be called an antibiotic. And antibiotics are
a type of antimicrobial designed to target bacterial infections within or on
the body. This makes antibiotics subtly different
from other main kinds of antimicrobial widely used today and antiseptic are
used to sterilize the surfaces of living tissues with the risk of infection if
it’s high such as during surgery and disinfectants
are non-selective anti microbials killing a wide range of microorganisms
including bacteria. They are used on nonliving surfaces. For example in the
hospitals, now there’s antifungals that kill fungus and antivirals that can kill
some type of viruses. Most antibiotics used today are produced in laboratories
but they are often based on compound scientists have found in nature. Some
microbes for example produce substances specifically to kill other nearby
bacteria in order to gain a competitive advantage when competing for food, water,
or other limited resources. However, some microbes only produce
antibiotics in the laboratory and so how do antibiotics work? Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections and some are highly specialized and are only
effective against certain types of bacteria. Others known as broad-spectrum
antibiotics attack a wide range of bacteria including the ones that are
beneficial to us. These are two main ways which antibiotics target bacteria. They
either prevent the reproduction of the bacteria
or they kill the bacteria for example by disrupting the cellular wall.
Now why are antibiotics important? Introduction of antibiotics into
medicine revolutionized the way that infectious disease were treated however
it’s also caused some problems with the over prescription or over utilization of
antibiotics. Between 1945 and 1972, the average life expectancy jumped eight
years with antibiotics used to treat infections. But just like some things
that are good that are used too much antibiotics if they improperly
prescribed can causes a host of problems and a host
of different unwanted side effects. Now today antibiotics are one of the
most common classes of drugs used in medicine and make possible many of the
complex surgeries that have become routine around the world. If we ran out
of effective antibiotics and modern medicine, it would set us back. However,
some people are over relying on antibiotics for common ear infections or
the cold which is mostly caused by a virus and viruses don’t respond to
antibiotics. Relatively, minor surgeries such as appendectomy could be
life-threatening if we ran out of antibiotics or if you use antibiotics
too much and the bacteria get immune for them it’s going to cause problems.
Now antibiotics are sometimes used in a limited number of patients before
surgery to ensure that the patients do not contract any infections from
bacteria entering open cuts. Now without this precaution, the risk of blood
poisoning could become much higher and many of the more complex surgeries
doctors now perform may not even be possible.
Antibiotics are called societal drugs since antibiotics resistance can pass
from bacterium or from bacteria and causing antibiotic resistant and
resistant bacterial infections can pass from person to person. I just had a
patient going to the hospital system for a colon surgery and developed methylene
resistant staphylococcus aureus which is a mersa infection and passed it on to
all of the family members. Now the difficulty with this condition is it’s
completely antibiotic resistant and the only way to treat those conditions is
you have to make the person healthy which if you make people healthy you can
decrease the need and utilization of antibiotics. Now antibiotic use
and antibiotic resistance can eventually affect the entire community because you
can spread antibiotic resistant bacteria from one family member or from one
friend to another. Now antibiotics in the form we know them
today are still relatively modern invention because they were accidentally
discovered by Sir Alexander Fleming, he was working on a project in his lab and
noticed that there was some mold on an auger sheet in our auger plate and what
happened was that bacteria wasn’t growing around them. This was happened in
1928 and Herald the beginning of what we call modern antibiotic era. This
discovery and subsequent development of numerous antibiotics for the first time
provided doctors with effective treatments for previously difficult or
incurable infections. Now some commonly prescribed conditions for antibiotics
are most all in fact bacterial infections for acne, for urinary tract
infections, for strep throat, for pneumonia, but antibiotics may have side
effects. Some of these more common side effects include soft stools or diarrhea,
an upset stomach, vomiting, severe watery diarrhea and abdominal cramps, allergic
reactions, shortness of breath, brash swelling of the lips face or tongue,
vaginal itching or discharge, white patches on the tongue, again skin rashes
and so let’s talk about some other ways to manage infections and immune system
disorders besides using antibiotics. It’s my opinion that you should use
antibiotics only when absolutely necessary because they’ll work better
and they may save your life. Now some alternatives to antibiotic therapy, my
favorite vitamin is vitamin C. Should be liposomal which we use vitamin C powder.
We mix it with the fat that forms my seal formation and gets into your system
it works tremendously. I love echinacea and echinacea has
been used historically for years and then it did get a little bit of a
rap a couple years ago because I think it was a disingenuous study. Now what
does that mean? There are active components of herb. Is that the root? Is
that the stem? Is that the leaf? It is the flower. And it’s my understanding of the
echinacea study that said that it didn’t work is that they were using the wrong
active component of the echinacea plant. I’ve seen tremendous outcomes with echinacea.
Now olive leaf, goldenseal, calendula, and colloidal silver. Now if we make the body
healthy, we don’t need antibiotic therapy because
we’re always being consulted or assaulted with viruses, fungus, bacteria,
and if we use raw honey horseradish, garlic, pineapple, which has a
really neat enzyme in it called bromo lean oil of oregano grapefruit seed
extract tea tree oil and then some of the in-office treatments that we’ve been
able to do to save legs from amputation, mersa infections and turn around chronic
infections are the ultraviolet therapy. There’s a way you can put an IV catheter
into the arm and treat the blood with 20 minutes of red light, 20 minutes to green
light, 20 minutes of magenta light, you can also use something called major
autohemotherapy where you run red blood cells pass an ultraviolet light where
you can attach a photon of energy to the red blood cells that are being exposed.
IV vitamin C therapy between 25,000 and $100,000 grand and dilute hydrogen
peroxide therapy are all fantastic treatment recommendations for chronic
infections. Now the one thing that’s really important if you have a fungal
infection or a viral infection don’t take an antibiotic it’s not going to
help you and it’s gonna make things worse if you need to antibiotic therapy
in the future. So natural considerations for antibiotic therapy. This is Dr. Jason west
we’ll see on the next video. We just covered alternatives to antibiotics and
what you can naturally do to help your immune system so that you will reduce
the need and hopefully eliminate antibiotics from your arsenal. You can
save them for when there this is Dr. West we’ll see you tomorrow.
