Ancient Trick Cures Deadly Infections
It’s no secret that we’re on the cusp of entering a post-antibiotic era.
A century of over-prescribing antibiotics has led to the development of antibiotic resistant superbugs—and it could be devastating.
As of right now, nearly one million people die every year from drug-resistant infections (especially seniors), and it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
After all, the rise of antibiotic resistance means that something as simple as an infected wound can be life-threatening.
The picture is a bleak one, but there is hope.
Studies have shown that a natural cure that’s been around for centuries can fight the toughest superbugs—even when antibiotics fail.
This secret weapon against superbugs is a type of honey called manuka.
Its was used for centuries to treat all kinds of infections—especially wounds and skin infections…until modern antibiotics came along, that is.
With the promise of a new miracle drug—and a patentable product—manuka honey got 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 infection, and heart valve infection.
This bacterium alone kills about 20,000 people a year, and it 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.
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.”
You can find it pretty easily online.
It can be applied topically if you have a skin infection. You can also take it by the spoonful.
