Conquer Infection without a Prescription

June 21, 2011

By Shane Ellison, M.Sc.

One of my first lessons as a drug chemist was that bacterial and viral infections could be conquered without a prescription drug. Mother Nature has a secret and extremely powerful antibiotic and immune booster. This substance is so powerful, Big Pharma has been trying to make a synthetic version in their top secret labs for almost 15 years.

Prescription antibiotics and antivirals are nothing more than counterfeits of what Mother Nature has to offer. Consider the following expert testimony from Dr. Edwin L. Cooper, professor at University of California: “Several valuable drugs have been isolated from plant and animal sources; these include aspirin, morphine, reserpine (the first antipsychotic), almost all antibiotics, digitalis, and anti-cancer agents such as vincristine, vinblastine, and Taxol.” Big Pharma doesn’t like promoting this fact because they know that drug sales would be curbed by people turning to natural medicine. Instead, they promote fear in order to sell synthetic counterfeits.

Do you remember how many people swallowed Tamiflu™ in fear of a gloabal pandemic of the notorious bird flu? Enough to earn its maker Roche a record $2 billion, at least! I don’t know if Tamiflu users feared turning into birds or feared that the bird flu would turn into the human flu – one is about as likely as the other.

And consider how vaccines are sold. Government-backed vaccination programs and the resultant fears that a lack of vaccine will put the population at risk have created further unease – sometimes mass hysteria.

In reality, the threat of a naturally occurring, global pandemic of any type is minuscule. But whether you’re facing a potential worldwide illness or a common cold, you don’t need to turn to the drugstore to find relief. The wonder-herb known as “andrographis” is available at your local health food store.

Andrographis comes from India, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka. This herb supercharges your immune system and helps flush out viral and bacterial infections. Here is just a sampling of what andrographis can do…, Reduces Severity and Duration of Cold and Flu
Historically, this herb has been used primarily as a treatment for cold and flu symptoms. Recent double blind human trials have proved that the use of andrographis reduces not only the severity but also the duration of cold and flu symptoms. Most people find that this herb relieves throat soreness, but researchers also noted that it improved other symptoms, including temperature, headache, muscle aches, cough, nasal symptoms, general malaise, and eye symptoms.

Helps Overcome Gum Disease
A new method of application for andrographis is as a medication for periodontal disease and gingivitis. This condition is common among the elderly population, where individuals over 60 years old experience tooth loss due directly to periodontal disease. Research has proven that andrographis is effective in inhibiting and killing the bacteria primarily responsible for periodontal disease, which prevents subsequent loss of teeth.

Beats Many Infections
Andrographis has been a staple to Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for its success in treating snakebites and overcoming malaria and dysentery. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is considered to be especially effective in clearing heat from the body and blood and is commonly used in treating heart conditions which include infection in the lungs, urinary tract, and throat (think strep throat). Within the halls of Big Pharma, modern research has proven andrographis to be beneficial at removing blood clots, stopping the spread of multiple types of cancer, and increasing the amount of immune enhancing white blood cells that your immune system produces. Its active ingredients have been identified as andrographolides. (Don’t worry, chemists are still arguing over how to pronounce that correctly.)

U.S. Army Uses Biohazard Suits
Wow, imagine if a prescription drug could do all that. The U.S Army would be walking around in biohazards suits in order to instill enough fear to instigate a massive pill-popping binge. Thankfully, Big Pharma has failed miserably at designing a synthetic counterfeit of andrographis. In its natural state, the wonder herb is always superior. Use it and say no to prescription drugs.

Making it Work for You
To make andrograhis work for you it must be taken in the right dose. One gram per 25 lbs, split in three doses, should be consumed daily when cold symptoms arise or to prevent contagious infection. For instance, if you weigh 150lbs then six grams daily is suitable – two grams three times per day. In health food stores, andrographis is sold as a whole herb or as a 4-6% standardized extract of one of its active ingredients, andrographolide. Anyone of these product variations is suitable. Anything greater than a 6% extract should not be used, as it may be missing other naturally occurring ingredients that are vital for effectiveness.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
