Ancient Cure Fights Modern Superbugs
Mainstream medicine isn’t above using scare tactics to get you to take their drugs.
But they’re pretty quiet when it comes to the disastrous effects of over-prescribing one of those meds.
The misuse of antibiotics has led to the development of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
And that’s every bit as serious as it sounds. It could render these lifesaving drugs USELESS in our lifetime.
As of right now, nearly one million people die every year from drug-resistant infections, and it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
Frankly, it’s terrifying.
That’s why scientists are working overtime to find alternatives that could work when antibiotics don’t. In their search, they’ve identified an ancient natural cure that can fight the toughest superbugs—even when antibiotics fail.
This secret weapon against superbugs isn’t a drug at all. It’s a type of honey called manuka.
Manuka honey was used for centuries to treat all kinds of infections—especially skin infections and wounds. It fell out of favor after modern antibiotics came along.
With the promise of a new miracle drug and a patentable product, manuka honey was left behind.
Now, this overlooked natural antibiotic is making a comeback—and just in time.
Studies show that manuka honey doesn’t just kill bacteria…it kills superbugs that antibiotics can’t touch.
This includes Staphylococcus aureus, more commonly known as MRSA. These staph bacteria can cause pneumonia, blood poisoning, bone infections, and heart valve infections.
This bacterium alone kills about 20,000 people a year and is notoriously resistant to numerous antibiotics.
But MRSA has finally met its match in manuka honey.
When these “untouchable” bacteria are treated with manuka honey, the bacteria stop reproducing and eventually DROP DEAD.
All told, clinical trials have shown that manuka honey can wipe out more than 250 strains of bacteria.
It’ll be a long time before mainstream medicine embraces manuka honey. But this bacterial superpower is available to you RIGHT NOW.
Keep in mind not all manuka honey has significant antibacterial factors. Any therapeutic honey should have a “Unique Manuka Factor” (UMF) of 10 or higher. This is usually marketed as “UMF Manuka Honey” or “Active Manuka Honey.”
The honey can be applied topically if you have a skin infection or wound. Just check with your doctor first. You can also take it by the spoonful.
Medicine doesn’t come any sweeter than this!
P.S. I’m not opposed to antibiotics. If you have a bacterial infection (and not just a common cold) that needs an antibiotic, take one! Just make sure you take the pills until they’re gone—which means taking them long after you feel better. For less serious bacterial infections, talk with your doc about trying a natural antibiotic instead. Here are SEVEN MORE of my top favorites.
