Dr. Bruce West succinctly and wonderfully expounds on how antibiotics are not the answer for your chronic cough! In addition to his recommendation of Respiratory Relief and a nebulizer to help your body heal from bronchitis, we highly recommend the professional grade Argentyn 23 hyrdosol silver. This formula is not available anywhere other than through a health care provider. This solution (only two ingredients of pure silver and pharmaceutical-grade purified water) has an unprecedented particle size of .0008 microns, or .8 nanometers (validated by Transmission Electron Microscopy), which allows for easy absorption and excretion from the body. Check out Dr. West’s article below.
Antibiotics No Better Than Sugar Pills for Bronchitis
Lots of physicians in this country still don’t get it about antibiotics. Deadly and drug-resistant bugs – caused by decades of antibiotic abuse – are the #1 most critical threat to our health. Despite recognition of this world-wide catastrophe for over 10 years, the U.S. has no national plan at all to deal with antibiotic resistance.
By contrast, the European Union has been systematically collecting data on antibiotic use and resistance by specific bacteria in 26 countries for over 15 years. As a result, it now has a 12-point plan and budget to address the problem in a coordinated fashion. This disaster and the way our government and medical industry has dealt with this leaves no question that the drug companies are running the show.
So our physicians continue to prescribe more antibiotics for people with bronchitis, which is primarily caused by viruses. In a recent medical study it was discovered that antibiotics and ibuprofen were no better than a placebo for bronchitis. 1 Still, antibiotics are commonly prescribed for this condition.
you probably know what happens – you or your kids start coughing up green sputum, and your doctor follows with a prescription for an antibiotic like amoxicillin. In this study, all 416 people had green sputum, cough, fever, difficulty breathing, and chest discomfort. Yet the antibiotics proved useless, doing nothing for all 416 people in the study – not shortening the duration of the cough for even an hour.
Besides being useless and contributing further to the antibiotic abuse crisis, the drugs cause serious side effects. Antibiotics are no implicated in asthma, wheezing, antibiotic syndrome, yeast infection, joint pain, and much, much more. Fully 12% suffered antibiotic side effects that could be easily measured (gastrointestinal discomfort etc.). No one knows how many suffered side effects like antibiotic syndrome and damage to their intestinal flora- damage which can last for months, years or for life.
And still physicians are prescribing antibiotics for acute bronchitis at rates of 60-80% of the time.s This is despite guidelines and educational efforts aimed directly at the physicians. And it does not occur only in doctors’ offices – it occurs in the finest hospitals in America! All this when the experts say that the rate of prescribing antibiotics for acute bronchitis should be zero! 3
Still think physicians are all-knowing? even with antibiotic abuse and resultant drug-resistant bacteria being the #1 health problem in teh world, most all physicians still prescribe antibiotics for bronchitis, despite the fact that htey are useless, expensive, and dangerous.
The conclusion was simple – antibiotics should not be prescribed for this condition. Will the conclusion be followed? No. The authors also rightfully claim that “we need to identify novel treatments to deal with this common disease.” 4 I have an idea. It is novel, simple, cheap, safea nd effective.
Keep some Respiratory Relief and a nebulizer on hand and be ready for hte first sign of bronchitis. If you think you are coming down with a cough, add 3 ml of the antimicrobial remedy REspiratory Relief into your nebulizer. The nebulizer turns the liquid into a fine mist that you breathe in during a 5-10 minute treatment. Do this 4-6 times daily – killing viruses, bacteria, and even fungi where they live. As we said, simple, easy, cheap, safe and effective. Will this novel treatment that is being desperately searched for by medicine be used? No – because it is not a drug.
