Antibiotic Medicine Harmed By Herbicides Including RoundUp

Toxic Chemicals Weaken Antibiotic Medicine As Well As Homeopathic Medicine

It was not surprising to hear on Radio New Zealand news just before Easter, that scientists have found that the efficacy of antibiotics is dramatically reduced by herbicides such as the glyphosphate-containing RoundUp weedkiller.

RoundUp and other toxic herbicides and pesticides, I find, have a dramatic effect on digestion, because they interfere with the natural digestive flora and enzymes in the body.

Candida infections, and bladder and kidney inflammations can result after being exposed to toxic chemicals which kill off the beneficial bacteria within the body, and change its natural, healthy,  pH level.

Other chemicals such as those found in printing inks and clothing dyes, and arsenic-treated timber, can also have a damaging effect on the health for the same reason.

It is a logical conclusion to draw, then, that if the natural and beneficial organisms living in the body’s digestive system can be killed off by toxic chemicals such as weedkiller and pesticides, that the organisms present within antibiotic medicines are likely to be affected too.

Many commonly used drugs are also likely to behave differently on the body when the digestive system is not functioning properly, as is the case when the useful digestive flora is damaged because of exposure to herbicides such as glyphosphates and neonicotinoid poisons or other harmful chemicals.

The efficacy of herbal medicines and homeopathy is also affected when a person has been exposed to chemical poisons such as weedkillers and pesticides.  Homeopathic preparations themselves are very sensitive to such poisons, and can be weakened if left in an area which has been made toxic for some reason.  People who use toxic chemicals, or even antibiotics and other pharmaceutical products, on a regular basis will find that Homeopathic medicines are not as effective as they are said to be, because of the negating effect of stronger chemicals.

It is now well known that antibiotics are losing their strength as disease-combatting medicines, because bacteria are becoming resistant to them.

And now it has been proven that RoundUp and other herbicides and pesticides are also diminishing the effect of antibiotics in curing disease.

Plenty of reasons, then, for governments world-wide to curb the free and irresponsible use of herbicides and pesticides.  They are not necessary for healthy agriculture:  We have survived thousand of years without these modern chemicals which are having an adverse effect on our environment and good health.

And nor is it necessary to use antibiotics and modern drugs.  They do have a purpose, of course, but often a simple herbal or homeopathic remedy will do just as well, or better, without the unwanted side effects you can expect from many modern drugs.

There are many good reasons to consider natural methods of farming and orcharding, as well as the use of Homeopathic remedies, Vitamin C therapy, Vitamin A therapy, and herbal medicine as alternatives to using vaccination antibiotics and other potentially harmful medicines.

Natural Remedies and Homeopathic Alternatives to Antibiotics:

Of course you need to consult your doctor if you or your child are suffering some infection.  Consult a registered homeopath for advice on what to use as an alternative to vaccination or immunization.  It is important to use just the right remedy for an illness, or for prevention.  So do consult an expert.

Here are some suggestions for you to discuss with your doctor or naturopath or homeopath.

Homeopathic Urtica Urens is a reputable medicine for kidney and bladder infections, especially if it is combined with the age-old remedy of drinking plenty of cooled, boiled water throughout the day.

Homeopathic Belladonna is used as a preventative for Scarlet Fever, or to treat it.

Homeopathic Ledum can be used as a preventative for Tetanus, or to use after an injury on farms or where horses have been kept.

Homeopathic Arsen Alb is excellent as a flu prevention, or to minimize the effects of flu if flu is already present.  There is no risk involved with using Arsen Alb for flu prevention, whereas the flu vaccination can be a risky thing.

Vitamin C in megadoses is a proven remedy to reverse illness. Swine flu, cancers of many kinds, and many other conditions of ill-health respond to Vitamin C therapy.  2000mg of non-acidic  vitamin c taken every hour or two will be quick to reduce flu symptoms in an adult.  Reduce the dose for a child.

Natural Remedies

Culpeper says of Sage that it ’causes the hair to become black’.

Garden sage has many therapeutic uses.

In the garden, its flowers provide medicine and nectar for the bees, as well as a herbal tonic to the neighbouring plants.

It is well-known as an aid to oral hygiene.  It has strong antiseptic qualities and is supposed to whiten tooth enamel.

Sage is still used today in some tooth-pastes.  It is reputedly one effective remedy for bleeding gums,  and improving gum health:  The crushed fresh leaves are massaged several times a day onto the gums and teeth.

The tea is gargled to relieve sore throats, colds and flu,  and ulcers in the mouth.

It can be effective to reduce fevers, and has been used in the past for thyphoid fever. (see ‘Herbal Remedies  and Homeopathy’ published by Geddes and Grosset.)

It is a valuable nerve medicine, and is a useful stomach remedy for improving a weak appetite.

Natural Herbal Hair Dye and Tonic:  Sage can help restore healthy hair and improve the colour.

Strong sage tea encourages hair growth and darkens the hair, if it is used on a regular basis. Many herbalists describe it in their writings:  see John Heinerman’s ‘Encyclopedia of Fruits Vegetables and Herbs’.

Rosemary is another wonderful herb which can help hair growth, but it does not have such a darkening effect on the hair, as sage does.

Recipe For Sage Hair Dye:  Here is a simple, natural hair dye and tonic which you can try.  It is perfectly safe to use, as it does not contain any harmful additives such as you might find in commercial dyes for darkening the hair.

Take two cups of fresh sage leaves and put into a stainless steel saucepan.

Add one cup of dry black tea leaves

Add half a cup of cider vinegar and eight cups of water.

Simmer very gently, with no lid, for one hour on a very low heat.  You should have around half the original quantity of liquid left at the end of an hour.  If you need to add a little more water, make sure you do so well before you finish simmering the brew.  If you add more water at the end of the simmering, then your mixture will not keep so well.

Take off the heat after an hour of simmering.  Set aside to cool.

Once your sage mixture has cooled properly, strain it off.

To the liquid remaining add the same amount of vodka.

Put into a bottle with a screw-top lid and store in a cool place.

Massage around a tablespoonful of the sage infusion into the hair each day.  Use more or less, depending on how much hair you need to cover.

Massage the sage tonic well into the roots of the hair as well, so that it feeds the scalp and hair follicles.  Massaging the scalp with the sage tonic will help the hair to grow again.

The oils in the sage leaves will put a natural shine to the hair.

Once the hair is sufficiently darkened, which may take several weeks, you can reduce the amount of applications each week.  Once or twice a week may be enough to maintain the darker colour.

Sage is really very good for the hair in so many ways.

Alternative Sage Tonic Without Alcohol:  You could make up your sage tea without the alcohol if you wish.  Only, remember that your mixture will not keep for longer than a week, and it must be kept in the fridge.  You could make up a lesser amount, enough to last a week, and then make up a fresh brew of tea for the following week.

Antibiotic Fucidic Acid Linked To New Strain Of MRSA Superbug

Natural Remedies As Alternatives To Antibiotics

Common infections such as impetigo, also known as ‘school sores’ could once be treated quite simply with gentian violet until around 2000, when the drug companies suddenly insisted that this remedy be removed from the chemist shops, or pharmacies, in New Zealand and Australia.

Drug companies had realized how much money they would make if this inexpensive, long-lasting  and harmless remedy was made unavailable to the general public, and their more expensive, short-life products marketed in its place.

Their reason for taking it off the shelves was that it could be ‘misused’, which could make it ‘dangerous’, they said.  Ridiculous.  Gentian violet has been used for perhaps hundreds of years.  It is very effective, and perfectly safe to use as a remedy for all sorts of skin complaints.

No-one has ever died from ‘misusing’ Gentian Violet.

If we had been allowed to continue using Gentian Violet instead of antibiotic remedies such as Fucidic Acid, then the untreatable superbugs such as the MRSA might not have surged to the extent that they have.

The removal of gentian violet from the shelves of the chemist shops happened alongside a co-ordinated promotion for other pharmaceutical preparations.  It was a hard-sell campaign for marketing new pharmaceutical preparations for skin diseases.

It did not matter what pharmacies or chemist shop you tried, these New Zealand and Australian pharmacies all tried to sell you other, much more expensive remedies than the good old gentian violet.

Note:  Disappointing to see that alongside the article in the NZ Herald which told us about the new strain of untreatable disease, CAUSED by an antibiotic, was a wee promotion for another type of antibiotic, namely one which is being used as a vaccination for pneumococcal disease.

About the NZ Herald Article on Wednesday, March 18th, 2015:  Who made the decision to put that plug for another vaccination there, in the same outlined space which warned about the dangers of antibiotics (vaccinations are antibiotics).  This vaccination plug really weakens the message of the article on its left, which warns about the imminent life-threatening dangers of antibiotic use.  That is why this wee promotion blog for vaccinations was placed next to the warning article – to suit the medical profession and drug manufacturers.

Don’t you see that there will be a danger with THIS vaccination antibiotic too?

All vaccination antibiotics will eventually have a similar effect to Fucidic acid:  All antibiotics, including vaccination/immunization antibiotics, will eventually weaken the immunity of the population, which will make people more susceptible to infections all over again.

Antibiotic vaccinations and immunizations might wipe out some types of infections, but this phenomenon  will encourage other, more virulent types of infections to occur.

AND – Just because the incidence of pneumococcal disease has fallen since the vaccination was added to the range of antibiotics given in 2008, New Zealand, does not necessarily mean the vaccination is having an effect:  These viruses and bacterial infections have natural cycles where they are more virulent, cycles which create an epidemic.

All that the drug companies, and their medical partners in subterfuge, need to do to convince the populace that their vaccines are working, is to measure the incidence of the said disease in its off-peak period.

Ebola Disease Possible Homeopathic Remedies And Vitamin C

Natural Remedies Which Could Work For Ebola Virus

So far, I do not know anyone who has had the Ebola Virus. But we do know that  Ebola is a haemorrhagic disease with disastrous consequences for 50% of people who have contracted the disease.

So checking out the haemorrhagic homeopathic remedies listed below might be useful, for a start.

Ebola takes hold in people whose  immune function is at a low ebb – this assumption can be drawn because of the fact that 50% of people who have contracted Ebola have overcome it without the help of drugs.

Poor living conditions, unclean drinking water, malnutrition, stress, and maybe exposure to harmful chemicals are some of the possible reasons which could lead to a weakening of the immune system, paving the way for a virulent infection such as Ebola.

 Vitamin C Megadoses For Ebola: It is possible that intravenous Vitamin C could cure Ebola, given in doses similar to the dose given to successfully treat people with Swine Flu.

Vitamin C kills virus cells as well as bacteria and fungus cells.Vitamin C is also an anti-haemorrhagic agent. So it should be an excellent treatment for Ebola.

A couple of years ago an outbreak of Swine Flu caused some people to die of the disease, because no drug was known to cure it.  Vitamin C, unfortunately, was not allowed to be used in Australian and NZ hospitals, which was an unfortunate state of affairs. But some people did survive, due to the wise and timely administering of megadoses of Vitamin C by unorthodox health care workers.

Megadoses of Vitamin C helps to rejuvenate the immune system and get rid of unwanted poisonous chemicals within the body cells.

Vitamin A Megadose For Ebola:  Vitamin A will most surely be helpful in treating the Ebola virus.  Quite recently WHO dished out Vitamin A for treating a measles outbreak.  Let’s hope they have the wisdom to do the same in those countries where Ebola is rampant.

Homeopathic Remedies To Research For Treating Ebola;

Remember that, in the 19th century, an outbreak of Cholera in Europe was successfully stemmed with the use of homeopathic remedies. This success quietened the adversaries of homeopathy and gave homeopathy much good publicity and credit.  The same thing will happen again, I am sure, with Ebola.  Many of these so-called ‘untreatable’ diseases will be cured with the help of homeopathy and Vitamin C and Vitamin A. (See my post on how Vitamin A has been prescribed by WHO – World Health Orgnization – for measles outbreak)

Hamamelis Virginicus is an excellent anti-haemorrhage remedy. I would ma ke sure that this remedy was in my Ebola Homeopathic First Aid Kit. Dr John H. Clarke, M.D. recommends Hamamelis for haemorrhaging of the bowels with dark-coloured blood.  See page 211 of his book ‘The Prescriber’.

Ipecacuana is recommended by Dr Clarke for haemorrhaging with light coloured blood.

Cactus for ‘copious, passive, painless’ condition, according to Dr Clarke.

Sanguis for when the blood is watery and does not coagulate.

Arnica helps to stem bleeding, and is a valuable remedy for patients in shock.  Dr Margerie B. Blackie writes of a surgeon who used to give his patients 2 tablets of Arnica just prior to an operation, and two more after the operation, to help stop the bleeding,

Homeopathy For Haemorrhages Recommended By W.A. Dewey

There are many listed in his book, ‘Practical Homeopathic Therapeutics’.  The high-lighted remedies are:







Secale Trillium

Carbo Veg, whilst it is not high-lighted in Dr Dewey’s book, is an important one to consider for Ebola.  Carbo Veg suits patients with continuous passive haemorrhage.  The patient seems near death with nosebleed,  a rapid and thin  pulse, blue coloured skin, and often burning pains across the lower spine.

Arsen Alb could also be useful for the first stages of the Ebola disease.  Arsen Alb works fantastically as a flu preventative and cure for most people.  I have the feeling that this remedy could very well alleviate the worst of the Ebola symptoms.

No Antibiotics For H7N9 Bird Flu Virus 2013 Human Killer

New Strains Of Influenza Are Threatening The Human Race.  Antibiotics and Immunizations are not working for some of these hybrid viruses.

DSCO 1556

Homeopathic Medicine could work for this new strain of Bird Flu,the H7N9.  When modern antibiotics do not work, homeopathic medicine and vitamins should most definitely be used instead to help save people’s lives.

See Merrilyn’s posts on the use of homeopathic remedies for various illnesses: 

Homeopathic Arsen Alb For NZ Flu May 2013

Homeopathic Remedy Arsen Alb For Flu Allergies Asthma 

Vitamin C and Cancer

Swine Flu: Intravenous Vitamin C

Best Homeopathic Remedy For Whooping Cough And Croup

Of course, since I have not had Bird Flu myself, I have not tried Arsen alb or any other homeopathic remedy on the Bird Flu Virus, but Arsen alb could very well be effective.

Since Vitamin C has proved effective for the deadly Swine Flu and other life-threatening infections, I would be looking to use intravenous Vitamin C as well, if I contracted the Bird Flu Virus.

Over 100 people so far have fallen sick with the deadly H7N9 Bird Flu Virus.  Of these people, one third who have succumbed to the disease have died.

The medical profession would do well to explore the range of Homeopathic remedies, which are available for treating different kinds of influenza.   Appropriate Homeopathic treatment, along with Mega doses of Vitamin C, and Vitamin A, might have prevented these people from dying of the Bird Flu.

Remember that antibiotics did not work to cure swine flu either, but when megadoses of Vitamin C were given, taken intravenously, some people were saved from dying of Swine Flu.

This H7N9 virus is affecting people in parts of China, and others who have come in contact with the disease. Some travellers have caught the bird flu, after coming in contact with infected chickens.

If I had the disease, I would be powering into those 1000mg tablets of non-acidic Vitamin C, or heading for a clinic which could administer some megadoses of intravenous Vitamin C.

If I was taking 1000mg tablets, I would take one tablet each hour until an improvement was noted.  I would also take Vitamin A capsules to the tune of three times the recommended dose each day. I would take the megadoses of Vitamin A for up to three days only.

Depending on the specific symptoms, I would choose a Homeopathic remedy from one of the following, and change the remedy as needed, when the symptoms changed.

Note:  Each remedy has its own range of specific symptoms, so it is necessary to examine the symptoms for each remedy so that the most effective remedy can be used.  A homeopathic doctor should be sought in the case of a serious illness such as Bird Flu.

Note about Iatrogenic Illness to Angus who commented on this post:  Read my post entitled:  ‘Medical Causes of Death’.

Accidents DO happen. We can never know just how many people suffer iatrogenic illness. But iatrogenic illnesses and deaths certainly do occur from time to time.

Only a year ago or so my cousin came back from Australia to have a cancerous portion of his bowel removed. Guess what? The surgeon removed the TOP part of his bowel, when it was the BOTTOM part of the bowel which should have been removed. The mistake was discovered just as he was waking up. So he was shot back into the operating theatre to have the bottom part removed. Too late to put back the good,top part of the bowel the surgeon had cut out.
This ‘accident’ was, like many, not reported as negligent practice. Many such-like mistakes go unrecorded, because people are too nice to complain.

My own daughter was initially made sick from aerial drops of 245T -same ingredients as Agent Orange which contains Dieldrin – We were intensively sprayed with 245T in a country area while I was pregnant. This caused chronic 245T poisoning which made us all very sick. It took several years for our health to recover after this spraying incident.

After my daughter was born, when her breathing was so bad, and she was so ill, doctors guessed she might have had cystic fibrosis, but this was never confirmed.

Anyhow, interesting to note that the actual CAUSE of her death was an overdose of Ventolin done by a young nurse at the hospital we were staying in. This caused heart failure and brain damage almost immediately after a whole test-tube full of ventolin was poured down her throat. I saw it happen. We eventually took her off life support after a month because there was no improvement. We had to let her die.

Interesting to note too, that I went to the doctor after the spraying, because my own health had suddenly become so bad, with asthma-like symptoms among other things. I wanted the doctor to note that the spraying had made me and my young son sick, so that our symptoms from 245T poisoning were recorded. My hopes were to get the stuff banned.
The doctor told me that there was nothing wrong with 245T – no record of it causing illness in humans – and that my illness was all in my imagination. What an ignorant doctor – the stuff was already banned overseas at that stage, but NZ was still manufacturing it.
This should give you some idea about the influence the chemical and pharmaceutical industries have on our society, how lies are told, and how rules are bent so that they can continue to profit where they can.

Lives could be saved if, as well as Vitamin C treatment,  homeopathic medicine were at least given a try in some of these ‘incurable’ illnesses.  Let’s pray that the pharmaceutical companies loosen their strangulating hold on the medicine industry, and let Homeopaths prove the worth of their science.

Bleeding Gums A Sign Of Vitamin C Deficiency

Natural Health Remedy

Scurvy and bleeding gums is what you get with a Vitamin C deficiency.

from Canon 280(1)

The ‘Limey’s of British ships discovered that taking plenty of limes, which are rich in Vitamin C, to supplement the diets of sailors, protected them from getting the deadly scurvy.  Blleeding of the gums is one symptom of scurvy, or Vitamin C deficiency.

I discovered that Vitamin C deficiency was related to gum disease early on in the piece.  I was pregnant with my very first child at the ripe old age of 23.

After a few months, my gums began to bleed after cleaning the teeth.  Next thing, they seemed to be bleeding after eating crunchy fruits such as apples and carrots.

We went along to the hospital, where I was booked to give birth to my baby, for a check up.

The doctor came in and checked me out.  “Is there anything you would like to tell me? – any questions?”  I decided to mention the bleeding gums.

“Oh – don’t worry about that!  Bleeding gums are NORMAL”, he said.  “90% of the pregnant women coming in here have bleeding gums”.

I went away from the hospital decidedly disappointed in the healing skills of this doctor.  Why wasn’t this doctor interested in finding out WHY people got bleeding gums, especially when 90% of his patients had them?

Bleeding gums are NOT normal.  I had never had bleeding gums before I became pregnant.  If so many people have bleeding gums, then they must ALL be lacking something in their diets, or taking something which is causing it.

I decided to check out the problem of bleeding gums myself.  My Guardian Angels were with me, I am sure, because I was led within days into the strange but wonderful little healing clinic above a shop on Auckland’s Queen Street.  A healer was operating up there, who was the real thing – generous enough to let me browse through his healing books which he had on display. I think he might have asked me what I was looking for.  I told him I had bleeding gums.  The information was revealed, one way or another, within a minute or two, without any expensive consultation, that the problem was likely to be a deficiency of Vitamin C.

I couldn’t afford to buy Vitamin C tablets at the time, but the healer told me, or maybe I read it in his books,  to eat a grapefruit each day.  He said to eat the inside peel, the pith, of the grapefuit as well, since that was where most of the Vitamin C was stored.

I expressed my gratitude to this lovely man and went on my way.  We got hold of a good supply of grapefruit, which were growing in most people’s gardens several decades ago.

I did as the man had said, and ate one whole grapefruit each day, including the white pith from the inside of the skin.

Within a week, the bleeding gums had disappeared.  I never had bleeding gums again during the course of the pregnancy, and did not ever have the problem again.

It was a good lesson in how important Vitamin C is to the health of the body, and to the gums.
