Antibiotics - 1 in 3 Prescriptions Found to be Unnecessary as stated by the CDC - Center For Disease Control and Prevention

So let’s chat about Antibiotics

  • I think it is safe to say that most Americans have been prescribed Antibiotics at one-time or another from our Doctors.
  • It is also safe to say that Antibiotics have saved millions of lives and do so every year. They are an important part of our health care when used properly.

However, here are some frightening numbers on Antibiotics that are prescribed:

The CDC: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state:

Exact Wording from the CDC:

Of the estimated 154 million prescriptions for antibiotics written in doctor's offices and emergency departments each year, 30% (46 Million) are unnecessary. This finding creates a benchmark for improving outpatient antibiotic prescribing and use. (Now that is an understatement).

About 44 percent of outpatient antibiotic prescriptions are written to treat patients with acute respiratory conditions, such as sinus infections, middle ear infections, pharyngitis, viral upper respiratory infections (i.e., the common cold), bronchitis, bronchiolitis, asthma, allergies, influenza, and pneumonia. An estimated half of these outpatient prescriptions are unnecessary. See the CDC Data Here :

So, when your doctor prescribes them to you or a loved one, do some research, make sure they are exactly what is needed for the ailment in question. If you need help researching, call us and let us help, it’s what we do. If you must take a Prescription Antibiotic you have to take a Probiotic to help your gut health.

Antibiotics work only for:

Common Bacterial Issues that Antibiotics work on:

  • Pneumonia
  • Strep Throat
  • Tuberculosis
  • Meningitis
  • Gastritis - Intestinal Issues
  • UTI – Urinary Tract Infection
  • Upper Respiratory Tract Infection
  • Dysentery

don’t help with Viruses like these. Our All-Natural Antibiotics with 14 Nutrients all working synergistically to fight:

  • Colds
  • Flu (influenza)
  • Sore Throats
  • Coughing / Sneezing
  • Runny Noses
  • Sinusitis
  • Stomach Flu
  • Bronchitis – Viral the most common version
  • Multiple Eye Infections
  • Numerous Ear Infections
  • Croup for Children
  • RSV – Respiratory Syncytial Virus

TIP: Take these All-Natural Antibiotics for support at the first sign of infection (eyes, ears, nose, throat, cold, flu).

Great results without the harmful side effects of prescriptions. *

If all your research has been done and you must take Antibiotics, we always suggest anyone 50 and above to take a Probiotic for sure. Our Dophilus Plus is made just for that. Why is this important? Antibiotics create a lot of collateral damage – they don’t just target that one pathogenic bacterium that they are prescribed to eliminate. They will also target and kill off a really large portion of the otherwise normal gut microbiota that we all have within us at the same time. This causes problems in older people. Probiotics are a must.
