Those who have completed trainings in SomaVeda® Integrated Therapies: Thai Yoga, Ayurveda and Natural Medicine know we spend a substantial bit of time learning about the threat to our health antibiotic resistant bacteria pose to everyone’s health. You would also be aware that as so called modern western medicine of the dominate culture is losing the effort to contain infections we need more alternatives for infections.
The use of antibiotics has long been the poster child in argument against the efficacy of indigenous, traditional and natural medicine and soon even that red herring will go away.
Check out this recent article on the US NEWS website titled “Analysis: Humans Losing War Against Antibiotic Resistant ‘Superbugs'” : http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2013/01/23/analysis-humans-losing-war-against-antibiotic-resistant-superbugs
The article states “Humans are quickly losing the fight against bacteria as so-called “superbugs” continue to develop resistance to some of the last effective antibiotics, leading some scientists to worry about the possibility of untreatable bacterial infections.”
Our SomaVeda™ Thai Yoga and the advanced degree programs teach and educate practitioner’s in both the dangers and risk factors of using conventional, chemical based antibiotics as well as the solutions and alternatives to them that every professional Natural Healer should know and be able to provide as a resource for their clients and communicants. We literally believe that the often unnecessary use of antibiotics is a crime against nature, spirit and man and creates cascading levels of atrocity in individuals and in nature as eventually these chemical, drug based antibiotics end up in the greater ecosystem causing interference in natural life cycles of the ecosystem at every stage.
One of the best documented examples of this is of course the MRSA superbug. Most people still are not even aware that there are infectious bacteria being developed every day as a result of the over use and mis use of antibiotics. It’s been public information since the mid nineties and yet is still seen as an imaginary bugaboo by the average citizen. New strains of MRSA are being found worldwide.
For example MRSA has been found in British Milk! http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2012/12/26/mrsa-superbug-found-in-british-milk
However, this growing threat is not imaginary. Especially those of us calling ourselves healers, doctors and ministers or counselors of indigenous, traditional, natural and or spiritual medicine need to become experts in dealing with and counseling those under our care in natural anti infection strategies.
