You may be thinking, “None of this applies to me, I’m healthy! I don’t use antibiotics, and I wouldn’t even if I was sick.”Well, that may be a good start, but you’re probably ingesting them in your food and not even knowing it. In (year) over 70% of antibiotic use in the United States wasn’t used in medicine at all. It was in the beef industry. Mega-farms use antibiotics in cows, as well as in pigs and poultry, to reduce diseases in cramped, unhealthy living conditions and to boost growth. Some of those antibiotics can, and do end up, in the food on your plate.


So What is the Solution?

The way out of this mess is with the aid of Essential Oils. There are some who like to dismiss these natural substances as just woo-woo nonsense or marketing hype, and yes, there have been some hacks over the years advertising them as a cure for everything from headaches to credit card debt. But the truth is that essential oils could very well end up saving humanity from an antibiotic apocalypse.

Essential oils are derived from plants and trees, and contain many of the same antibacterial properties as traditional antibiotics, but differ from them in very important ways. For starters, they do not destroy the good bacteria in the body, but only attack the invasive bacteria causing disease. Their use also does not lead to the development of resistant strains of bacteria

Studies have demonstrated that essential oil-based treatments can be just as effective, and sometimes more effective than standard antibiotics. Some scientists believe this is because essential oils can actually penetrate the cell membrane of harmful bacteria, while even the most powerful antibiotics cannot do this.

    This winter I’ve been using a mixture of peppermint and rosemary oils to prevent chilblains which I’ve suffered from every year for the last 46 years. It seems to be working, so far no chilblains after 4 weeks of cold weather. I’m rapt! ‘very grateful to the person who posted the remedy on a health blog I chanced upon.
