Antibiotic resistance occurs when an antibiotic can no longer control or kill bacterial growth; in other words, the bacteria are "resistant", continue to multiply and do harm even in the presence of therapeutic levels of an antibiotic.
While antibiotic resistance is a natural phenomenon, some resistance is the result of human action, specifically, the overuse and abuse of antibiotics.
Antibiotic resistance is a serious, global issue.
Reducing the unnecessary use of these drugs is the only way to slow the emergence of resistance.
The US and Australia record among the highest antibiotic prescription rates in the world; issued through primary care offices (GPs), emergency rooms, hospitals and long-term care facilities. While inappropriate drug prescription and use has decreased in both countries in recent years, it remains high by international standards.
The key point of concern being that these drugs continue to be prescribed for conditions that do not actually respond to antibiotics!
One in three outpatient, antibiotic prescriptions are unnecessary in the United States: and nearly three quarters of these prescriptions are made for non-responsive respiratory conditions like colds, asthma, allergies and bronchitis.
It is quite simple: antibiotics are not recommended for the treatment of chest colds, bronchitis – in children and adults, or rhinosinusitis because they do not work!
If drugs will not provide symptomatic relief and make you well again, what will?
Dry salt therapy (halotherapy) is clinically proven to relieve the symptoms of a broad selection of respiratory complaints, and hasten recovery.
The Salin Plus Salt Therapy device is the world’s first, at-home dry salt therapy device, mimicking the microclimate created in modern salt rooms and ancient, therapeutic salt spas.
A compact “halogenerator”, the device releases therapeutic salt ions, sub five microns in scale and ableto penetrate deep into the lungs to cleanse, humidify and reduce inflammation, putting an end to discomfort. Aerosol salt also has expectorant and anti-bacterial properties: fluidizing mucous, reducing edema and healing the respiratory system.
The low dose salt (less than 0.1g/day) used in the device means Salin Plus is safe for the whole family: pregnant women, newborn babies, infants, children and the elderly or frail.
There are few naturally-based, medical therapies available that generate the kind of results that salt therapy can.
The beauty of Salin Plus Salt Therapy is that it is not only curative (it makes you feel better when you’re unwell), but it is also a powerful preventative: that is, it supports healthy immune function in the long term.
This all means less reliance on pharmaceutical drugs to feel and stay well: not only good for you, but our global health!
