Study says doctors overuse antibiotics

Most people go to their doctors and request antibiotics when they are sick or get a cold. Most all antibiotics do not affect colds that are viral in nature, plus these drugs have serious toxic side effects often occur. Dr. James Lee of Austin Chiropractic talks about this in his weekly health lectures in South Austin, Texas.

“Antibiotics are still being prescribed widely to treat the common cold, despite evidence that they are completely ineffective against colds and flu viruses. Such indiscriminate use of antibiotics has created a serious problem involving bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. “


“Adverse events from antibiotics cause an estimated 142,000 emergency department visits per year in the United States.”

“Antibiotic therapy is not an effective treatment against otitis media (ear infection) and rates of recurrent infection are significantly higher in children who have been treated with antibiotics.”

Most diseases that are known to the medical profession have evolved to become resistant to at least one antibiotic and many of these diseases are immune to more than one. There are two strains of bacteria that have created a very alarming situation with in the Global Medical community, Cholera and Tuberculosis strains. These have been evolving and becoming untreatable. In fact, in Rwanda, more than 50,000 people were killed because any standard antibiotics could not treat the cholera strain.  The more exposure a bacterium has to a certain drug the quicker it develops a resistance. Bacteria adapts to survive, it evolves, so it has the ability to change their outer membrane so the drug cannot gain entrance.

Time Magazine reported these reports.

Dr. James Lee from Austin Chiropractic works very closely with people who have reoccurring colds and flues. The Chiropractic adjustment is the first step towards healing. This will clear up any nerve interference and therefore support the immune system which will then help fight off any illnesses. The key to fighting and preventing illness is to strengthen the degree of natural immunity.

Whenever the immune system deals successfully with an infection, it emerges from the experience stronger and better able to confront similar threats in the future. Our immune system develops in combat. If, at the first sign of infection, you always jump in with antibiotics, you do not give the immune system a chance to grow stronger.” 11
