Antibiotic Resistance - A Serious Danger

Sunday 20 December 2020

The germ theory of diseases links bacteria to the causation of diseases. As a result, scientists started to search for drugs that would kill these bacteria. In 1942, the term "antibiotic" was first used and now, antibiotics means any medication that kills bacteria or inhibits their growth.

Antibiotic resistance refers to the ability of bacteria to resist the effects of medication that could once successfully treat them. It is one of the biggest threat to global health, food security and economic development.

Resistant bacteria:
- are more difficult to treat as the antibiotics become less effective.
- require alternative medication.
- require higher doses of antibiotics.

As a result, treatments can become:
- more expensive with longer hospital stay and higher medical costs
- more toxic with increased rates of death.

What cause antibiotic resistance?

(a) Lack of target

Antibiotics normally bind onto specific proteins on the bacteria's cell wall. Some bacteria have no cell wall, giving the antibiotic no place to latch onto and rendering it useless. This gives these bacteria an innate resistance to penicillin.

(b) Lack of entry

After binding to the cell wall proteins, the antibiotic normally enters the bacterial cells via porin channels in the cell wall. The loss of these specific porin channels or the creation of new porin channels in the bacterial cell wall block antibiotics from entering the cells.

(c) Blocked entry or increased excretion

This means that the drug is either blocked from entering the cell or there is a mechanism that caused the drug to be excreted from the cell too quickly to be of much use.

(d) Enzyme inactivation

Certain enzymes can either destroy antibiotics or prevent them from binding to target sites.

(e) Altered target

The specific binding proteins on the bacterial cell surface can be altered due to genetic mutations as the cells replicate, resulting in the antibiotic being unable to bind to them anymore.

(f) Alternative pathway

An alternative pathway that bypasses the reaction inhibited by the antibiotic allows for the bacteria to avoid the antibiotic's harmful effect.

(g) Genetic mutations

This refers to the random change in the DNA structure of genes, which occurs at a frequency of 1 per 10 million cells. Mutations can randomly confer the ability to resist antibiotics on bacteria through a few methods, including those listed above.

The Human Factor

We humans also promote antibiotic resistance through various ways:

(a) Patients

- Forgetting to take medication.
- Stopping medication when they begin to feel better.
- Unable to afford the full course of medication.
- Misuse of antibiotics.
- Self-medication, which may be unnecessary or taken in the wrong doses.

(b) Doctors

- Overprescribing broad spectrum drugs when a narrow spectrum drug is appropriate.
- Prescribing wrongly.
- Prescribing unnecessarily.
- Inadequate surveillance and susceptibility testing, leading to use of broad-spectrum drugs, rather than a narrow spectrum now.

(c) Hospitals

- Poor infection control practices e.g. inadequate hand washing, not changing gloves between patients etc.

(d) Antibiotics

- Using expired or counterfeit antibiotics.
- Lack of quality compliance and monitoring.

(e) Animal use

- Used for growth and disease control in poultry, cattle, pigs etc. Humans are indirectly taking these antibiotics when eating the meat.

(f) Overcrowding

- Residents of developing countries often carry antibiotic-resistant faecal commensal organisms due to close living quarters.
- Visitors to developing countries passively acquire antibiotic-resistant E. coli.

As you can see above, it is so easy for antibiotic-resistance to happen. There are too many uncontrollable factors. Even if we do everything we can, there's nothing we can do when the bacteria mutate.

This means that taking antibiotics for long-term is Not a sustainable solution.
How can you boost up your immune system then? Is there anything that can replace antibiotics?

A Better Solution

Have you heard of Lingzhi / Ganoderma?

Shen Nong's Herbal Classic identifies it as a  top superior herb, that if consumed for an extended period of time may lighten the body, prevent ageing and thus sublimate to Godly longevity.

"Let Food by thy Medicine, and Medicine be thy Food" - Hippocrates.
Lingzhi falls in the overlapping section between food and medicine.

Lingzhi performs many Functions, including:

- Protect our liver
- Regulate our immune system
- Cleanse and detoxify our blood
- Promote regeneration of cells and metabolism
- Prevent the occurrence of diseases
- Delay ageing.

This means that Lingzhi is able strengthen your immune soldiers so they are capable of fighting the bacteria and virus. When you are attacked by bacteria, take Lingzhi instead of antibiotics. That is what I have been doing over the last 12 years. I have never taken any antibiotic for 12 years. Whenever I fall sick, I just take high dose of Shuang Hor Lingzhi. My problem is solved.
