Antibiotics For Boils…To Use Them Or Not To Use Them? That Is The Question.

Antibiotics For Boils…To Use Them Or Not To Use Them? That Is The Question.

When people are suffering from boils and are asking me about effective treatments one of the most common questions is…should I use antibiotics for boils? My reply is that you most certainly should….BUT (yes there is a but) you need to decide whether to use synthetic, man-made antibiotics or natural products that have antibiotic and antibacterial properties. What’s the difference? There are several actually and they are big ones! Firstly, modern antibiotics are synthetic, man-made products that have simple molecular structures. This means that bacteria and other nasties can easily evolve and develop a resistance to the antibiotics. This is how “superbugs” have developed. Essentially the bacteria, virus or other nasty is treated with modern antibiotics to which it quickly develops a resistance, making it immune to the drugs. As such, more powerful drugs (including antibiotics) need to be produced, tested and then introduced. Once again, the nasties develop resistance and grow stronger and require anew drug to deal with them. Do you notice a pattern here? Yep…it has become and endless cycle. We are continually trying to stay one step ahead of these “superbugs”. Another point to note is that these modern medicines (including antibiotics) actually lower your immunity when you ingest them because they attack not only the nasties inside your body, but they also attack the good bacteria that live in your gut and are responsible for keeping your immune system strong.  So is there any good news? There sure is. Many natural products have medicinal properties such as antibiotic, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal. You name it, mother nature has probably provided it. In fact,before the introduction...
How To Treat A Boil

How To Treat A Boil

Boils are nasty looking, painful, sores that are recognisable as red lumps on the skin, (usually puss filled)  that cause a heck of a lot of discomfort for something that is so small. In this article we are going to look at how to treat a boil effectively. What causes boils? Boils are usually (but not always) caused by a bacterial infection of a hair follicle. In the medical world, the bacteria responsible is known as Staphylococcus Aureus or “Staph” for short. In it’s “simplest” form, Staph is fairly easy to kill and can be dealt with effectively by both antibiotics and various natural treatments. However, over use of antibiotics over the years has led to new strains of Staph emerging. These strains are able to resist antibiotics and as such, are hard, if not impossible to treat using antibiotics. These resistant strains are referred to as Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus or MRSA. How long do boils last? This all depends but usually a boils will last no more than 14 to 21 days if left to its own devices. This timeframe can vary greatly and so this is just a rough guide. So…how should you treat boils? It depends on whether your boil was caused by regular Staph or one of the MRSA stains. This is because different approaches are required. As MRSA is not limited to boils, I will be explaining how to deal with boils caused by “regular” Staph. Because “regular” Staph is sensitive to antibiotics, you can take a course of antibiotics prescribed by a doctor or you can use natural treatments. If your boil...
