All of us have used some form of antibiotic during our life. It’s nice to know we have something to help our body fight against bacteria and viruses so that we can get back to work sooner and start feeling like our same old selves once again.
However, there are a few down sides to taking antibiotics. One that is worth mentioning is the fact that when a bacterium is exposed to medications, it builds up a resistance to it over time. This means, after a while, this medicine (or antibiotic) isn’t going to work as effectively as it once did.
In many cases, the antibiotic will stop working altogether. While this may not seem like that big of a deal, it’s actually a very scary thing. The more we use medication, the harder it is to get rid of things that used to be easy to cure. Bacteria and viruses are becoming stronger than ever and if this continues; there may not be a way for the human race to keep up with the speedy evolution.
There are a few ways to get rid of your need for antibiotics. First of all, get plenty of sleep. Your body does most of its healing while you are resting so the more sleep you can squeeze into your busy life, the better.
Also, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, as these are going to help your body get all the needed nourishment so your body can better fight against germs and get you up and running again in no time. On the same note, try to avoid things high in things such as sugar and caffeine because these aren’t going to help your body and you may experience nasty crashes when they wear off.
It’s also extremely important for you to bath regularly and wash your hands, this way you are less likely to spread the germs on to someone else.
Keep in mind, being sick may not be fun, but it’s going to be a lot worse when you overuse medications and then the bacteria becomes so strong that there is no way to cure it anymore. Now that could be the end to mankind as we know it. That may seem dramatic, but as the years go by, that could definitely become the reality.
