The Danger of Rare Gene which Causes Resistance To Bacteria

 

Just read this article from the website of Dr Mercola who is  well-respected in the field of medicine. It is well worth the read and I believe everyone should be aware of the dangers of these resistant drugs.

I Will give you an outline of what it is about.

It has been suggested that deaths from antibiotic-resistant disease will reach 10 million per year. Drivers of this disease is antibiotics in agriculture, Hospitals, CRE- (carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae) which produces an enzyme that breaks down antibiotics

Strategies to protect yourself and help prevent the spread of are:-

  1. Infection prevention, with a focus on strengthening your immune system naturally. Avoiding sugars, processed foods and grains, stress reduction, and optimizing your sleep and vitamin D level are foundational for this. Adding in traditionally fermented and cultured foods is also important, as this will help optimize your microbiome.

The Nitric Oxide Dump exercise (below) will also help improve your immune status. Contrary to supplements that boost immune function, which should be taken only as needed, the Nitric Oxide Dump exercise is a preventive method that should ideally be done daily.

2. Limiting your use of antibiotics. Any time your doctor prescribes an antibiotic, ask if it’s absolutely necessary, and keep in mind that antibiotics do not work for viral infections. For example, antibiotics are typically unnecessary for most ear infections, and they do not work on the common cold or flu, both of which are caused by viruses.

3. Avoiding antibiotics in food by purchasing organic or biodynamic grass-fed meats and animal products.

4. Avoiding antibacterial household products such as antibacterial soaps, hand sanitizers and wipes, as these promote antibiotic resistance by allowing the strongest bacteria to survive and thrive in your home.

5. Properly washing your hands with warm water and plain soap, to prevent the spread of bacteria. Be particularly mindful of washing your hands and kitchen surfaces after handling raw meats, as about half of all meat sold in American grocery stores is likely to be contaminated with pathogenic bacteria. Avoid antibiotic soaps that typically have dangerous chemicals like triclosan.

6. Common-sense precautions in the kitchen: Kitchens are notorious breeding grounds for disease-causing bacteria, courtesy of contaminated meat products, including antibiotic-resistant strains of E-coli. To avoid cross-contamination between foods in your kitchen, adhere to the following recommendations:

  • Use a designated cutting board, preferably wood, not plastic, for raw meat and poultry, and never use this board for other food preparation, such as cutting up vegetables. Color coding your cutting boards is a simple way to distinguish between them
  • To sanitize your cutting board, use hot water and detergent. Simply wiping it off with a rag will not destroy the bacteria
  • For an inexpensive, safe and effective kitchen counter and cutting board sanitizer, use 3 percent hydrogen peroxide and vinegar. Keep each liquid in a separate spray bottle, and then spray the surface with one, followed by the other, and wipe off
  • Coconut oil can also be used to clean, treat and sanitize your wooden cutting boards. It’s loaded with lauric acid that has potent antimicrobial actions. The fats will also help condition the wood

These recommendation come from Dr Mercola’s article.That is why I recommend you read it as it could save you and your family’s life.

My recommendation is   Precaution of the water you drink 💦 – Antibiotic residue can be found in the water you drink. The  Kangen water machine will filter and enhance the quality of the water  to strengthen your immune system. I personally have experienced this.

These are the natural Immune Boosters

Garlic

Oregano Extract

Cinnamon

Colloidal Silver

Manuka honey

Echinacea

Sunlight and Vitamin D

How To Extend the Life of the Bouquet of Flowers

This company  ZFlowers.com I use to send my Mom her flowers in NZ and think they are the best. They are world-wide, have always had no problem with the flowers delivered. Almost the same as the picture on the website and inexpensive also delivered on time. Just thought I would give you a heads up as some companies are not so honest in their deliveries. I don’t get any financial benefit from this company just like to promote good service

 

A bouquet of flowers or a nicely done floral arrangements is more pleasurable if they will last longer. Here are 5 ways you should not miss in extending the life of your cut flowers.

  1. Trim the stem under water or under running water.Trim the end of each stem with a sharp, non-serrated knife under water at 45-degree angle. Make sure to submerge it in water after trimming so as to avoid air pockets to form that can block the path of water into the stem. Never ever use scissors as it can crash the flower stem and can cause it to die quickly.Tip #1: When cutting flowers from the garden, do it early in the morning when the temperature is still cool. Then, place them in water immediately.Tip #2: To improve the life of flowers that ooze a milky “sap”, immerse its bottom by 2 inches in boiling water for 10 seconds before using them in an arrangement.2. Remove wilted petals and leaves.

 

Any leaves or foliage submerged in the water will break down and can cause bacteria to form.  So remove any foliage from the part of the stem that will be submerged in water.

Tip #1: Don’t jam too many flowers in the vase as overcrowding stems can wilt them more quickly and release bacteria into the water.

Tip #2: Always pluck out wilted stems and leaves to keep the flowers looking fresh and avoid bacteria from forming.

 

  1. Put the arranged flowers in a clean vase.

Before you arrange the flowers to your vase, make sure they are clean and free from any bacteria. Use dish soap, hot water, and white vinegar or bleach to clean the inner side of the vase. A teaspoon or two of sugar and bleach, when added to the water, can feed the stems of the flowers and keep the water free from bacteria.

  1. Feed the cut flowers with solutions or preservatives.

Flowers need food to help them grow and keep them healthy. For cut flowers,  foods are used to improve the flow of water on the stems, to help buds open and last longer, and to reduce the growth of bacteria and fungi. The following solutions are good to feed to flowers:

  • One part Lemon-lime soda and three parts water. Plus ¼ teaspoon household bleach per quart to keep solution clear.
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 tablespoon sugar, and ¼ teaspoon bleach per quart. Add another ¼ teaspoon bleach to vase every 4 days.
  • Commercial flower preservative sold in flower shops and supermarkets.

Tip: Aspirin or  vinegar is rarely effective.

  1. Change the water on the vase every other day and keep the flowers away from direct heat.

Change the water and cut the stem of the flowers at least every other day. Keep them out of direct sunlight or any place that exposes them to heat such as heaters, fireplaces or appliances. Keep the flowers cool. The higher the temperature, the faster they deteriorate.

The use of KANGEN WATER  has also been known to keep your flowers to last longer.

1. Dead bugs on your windshield are gross. But dryer sheets can pretty easily clean bugs off your car’s grill, hood, mirrors and windshield. Just spritz the area with a little water, then use either a new or a used sheet to easily erase the gook from you car! It really works, and it’s so simple to do.

2. To clean that white deodorant spot of your shirt just scrunch up a used sheet and scrub the spots away. Your shirt will look as clean as it was when you put it on, and smell a little fresher too. No need to waste a fresh sheet, just use one you previously did laundry with.

3. A New fresh dryer sheet can control that static in a few ways. If your hair is starting to get that fly away look, rub your brush with a sheet before brushing your hair. If clothing is sticking to itself and making a tight cling, rub the underside of your garment with a sheet until the static is erased. It works wonders!

4. You know the smell never comes out of the carpet and your vacuum cleaner always has that pungent smell of dirt. Well, rip a fresh dryer sheet in half and place it inside your bag or canister before you begin vacuuming. The scent keeps the vacuum smelling fresh and it actually gives the carpet a boost of freshness. For really bad odors, use the whole sheet instead of just half. My cleaner always stinks so a whole sheet is doing a great job keeping my machine and carpet smelling fresher.

5. Dryer sheets are great to shine your faucets or clean a glass shower door – even the shower walls! A new sheet will clean that shower soap scum up in a jiffy! No hard scrubbing is required and no expensive cleaners with chemicals, just a plain old dryer sheet. For your faucets and metal plumbing, a used dryers sheet keeps the water stains away and keeps them looking polished. The same for any other metal appliances, they work great on keeping fingerprints and smudges away.

This I have never been able to achieve until now. I often wondered how it was done as I seem to end up with just a ball of sheet. 

I have not tried this but I have had the time when I have needed AA batteries and only had a draw full of AAA’s.

Excellent idea. 

This I have done. Great when you have forgotten to bring soap and the soap in the hotel has not the best fragrance
