    Default Indian Herb Tested As Effective As Antibiotics

    Bryan Hubbard
    April 17 2019

    A traditional Indian herb could be an effective alternative to antibiotics—and now scientists are about to find out in the first-ever trial of its type in the West.
    The herb, Andrographis, is being tested as a natural remedy against colds and flu—and treating common problems like these with antibiotics is bringing closer the era of the drug-resistant superbugs.

    Andrographis, known as 'king of the bitters', grows in India and Sri Lanka—and was thought to be responsible for combatting the Spanish flu epidemic that had reached the sub-continent by 1919.

    Happy to see more attention to this growing problem. Pharmaceutical companies have all but abandoned the "less profitable" antibiotic market. Meanwhile, according to the CDC, drug-resistant infections continue to mount up. The Big Three--MRSA, CRE, and C. Diff.--impact more than 2 million people annually, killing about 23,000 people every year. In addition, antibiotics used to treat sexually transmitted diseases are growing increasingly ineffective.
    MRSA= (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus).
    CRE = (carbapenaem-resistant enterobacteriaceae).
    C. Diff. = (clostridium difficile)

    First, I'm surprised to see Andrographis in this context. I still haven't finished the bottle I bought quite a while ago, but it was represented to me as an adaptogenic, meaning an herb that would seek out and improve whatever was missing in your physiology, i.e. increase the deficiencies and lower the excesses. In any case, it's had no effect on me and I don't plan to re-order it.

    Mr. Wizard, I'm wondering whether either colloidal silver or garlic could treat any of your big three. Does anyone remember reading anything to that effect?

    Raw garlic has proven highly effective in killing MRSA, C. Diff., & CRE. I believe colloidal silver is equally effective, but not absolutely sure in all three cases. Will research and follow up later. Recall, garlic, holy water & crucifixes were the only things that conquered vampires. If garlic can beat back vamps, it can probably kill anything. Lol.

    ...and that's why I wear a necklace of garlic whenever I travel abroad after dark!
    Good one, Mr. Wiz! Lol!
