Protecting you and your family from Super Bugs like MRSA and Staph largely depends on how you maintain, balance and protect the skin. Although topical antibiotic, antiseptic and antibacterial products are in wide supply these days, the problem continues to worsen. So much so, over 19,000 Americans died last year from flesh eating, deadly bacteria that gained access to its victim’s internal environment via a minor cut or abrasion.
Because bacteria are capable of asexual reproduction and binary fission, it didn’t take long to adapt their immunity to the Broad Spectrum Antibiotics we’ve all had prescribed for us at one time or another. However, this knowledge hasn’t deterred Pharmaceutical companies from researching and developing stronger strains of antibiotics to stay in a race they know they can never win. Any solution that stays focused on killing the symptom and not the cause is like mopping up a floor without turning the faucet off first.
One thing the medical and holistic community has always agreed on is the need to improve basic sanitation; frequent hand washing cited as the most important act. However, what you clean your hands and nails with is more important than the regimen itself. While OSHA advocates and demands the use of petro-chemical derivatives found in soaps, disinfectants and sanitizers mandated by the State for widespread use in all regulated institutions, it’s no wonder these facilities are the hardest hit by infectious bacterial virus’ and disease.
