In 2050, #resistance to # antibiotics could cause 10 million deaths EVERY YEAR around the world if no action is taken!
The @OCV warns that this is a great challenge facing public health.
#VeterinaryFitotherapy can play an essential role as an alternative to the massive use of certain antibiotic compounds. The use of essential oils from aromatic plants and other plant extracts with different therapeutic effects is proving to be the most viable therapeutic alternative to reduce the spread of antibiotic resistance in the ecosystem.
But what is this about resistors? Is it as serious as it seems? How are ecosystems involved? For a better understanding we recommend viewing this program of @EscarabajoVerde 2 “The Perfect Storm” where they explain how important it is to reduce the consumption of these compounds to prevent bacteria from being exposed to them in a sub-therapeutic way.
If humans or livestock take certain antibiotics when it is not strictly necessary, our droppings drag into the water the “manuals” that bacteria have to teach each other how to face threats. In this way, when you come into contact with these bacteria in nature, in your food, on your television remote, etc. you can find a bacterium that learned to defend itself against antibiotics in any country on the globe thousands of kilometers from you, being able to resist an antibiotic that you have never taken and that you may need at some point.
Flies cannot be killed with gunshots, and microorganisms like bacteria and fungi get stronger the more we attack them; Before taking antibiotics, it is better to consider taking pre- and probiotics, because as we say in @BOALVET, “there is no better way to fight a pathogenic bacterium than another beneficial bacterium”. Many of the compounds that we use in veterinary herbal medicine do not harm beneficial bacteria, some even promote them and brighten life.
