Paper #5: Antimicrobial resistant (AMR) microorganisms
Note: It is important to have read Papers #2, #3 and #4 before reading this paper.
1. Evolution of microorganisms that are resistant to antibiotics and other antimicrobial medication
Because of the widespread use of antibiotics and other antimicrobial medications since the 1940s, many microorganisms .. in particular, bacteria .. have evolved in ways that now make them resistant to these medications, called antimicrobial resistance (AMR)*. The consequence is that medical science is unable to cure or prevent the infections and diseases caused by them.
*Note: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is also called "antibiotic resistance" in the case of bacteria that have evolved to become resistant to antibiotic medications that were once effective. AMR is also called "multidrug resistance (MDR)" in the case of microorganisms that have evolved to become resistant to multiple antimicrobial medications that were once effective. And the media and public use the word "superbugs" to describe these microorganisms .. that is, microorganisms (including bacteria) that have evolved to become resistant to antimicrobial medications (including antibiotics).
As explained in Papers #2, #3 and #4, I am confident that it is possible to naturally cure and prevent a great many of the problems caused by harmful microorganisms .. be they: (a) The foreign microorganisms, pathogens (see Paper #2), or (b) The excess numbers of our natural microorganisms, microbiota, when they have multiplied too greatly (see Paper #3) .. by carrying out the warm, slightly salty (table salt) bath or basin procedure explained in Papers #2 and #3 in order to draw them from the body, and by not blocking or partially blocking their natural exit, with sweat (either visible or not), via the pores of the skin, especially from the key skin exit areas, as explained in Paper #4.
If the investigation of these ideas by medical science confirms they are correct, Doctors would then be able to greatly reduce the current reliance on prescribing antibiotics and other antimicrobial medications.
And this would have the effect of preventing, or at least greatly slowing, the evolution of new strains of microorganisms that are resistant to antibiotics and other antimicrobial medications.
In relation to those antibiotic resistant strains and other antimicrobial resistant strains that have already evolved, I am confident that many of the problems caused by them can be successfully cured and prevented by carrying out the bath or basin procedure (see Papers #2 and #3) and by not blocking or partially blocking their natural exit, with sweat (either visible or not), via the pores of skin, especially from the key skin exit areas (see Paper #4).
2. A related matter:
For the same reason as above, the widespread use of antibiotics and other antimicrobial agents also needs to be tackled in relation to: (a) Hospital antimicrobial cleaning products and antimicrobial sterilisation products (see Point 11(s) of Paper #12), (b) Soap and other antimicrobial personal hygiene products, (c) Household, office and factory disinfectant cleaning products, and (d) Other similar products used in industry, agriculture, the making of processed foods, and in many other ways.
The use of these products is likewise causing resistant strains of microorganisms to evolve in these particular environments .. and they then spread into our broader environment.
This problem is likewise a very serious one that should be urgently tackled, especially in relation to hospital antimicrobial cleaning products and antimicrobial sterilisation products.
3. New practices and new products:
I am confident it will be possible for:
(1) Us as individuals to adopt NEW personal hygiene practices, and
(2) Hospitals, households, offices, factories, industries, farmers and others to adopt NEW cleaning practices and NEW sterilisation practices, and
(3) Medical research institutes and manufacturers to develop NEW personal hygiene products, NEW cleaning products and NEW sterilisation products to replace the currently (2014) available antimicrobial ones,
which will facilitate good cleanliness and hygiene but which will not result in the evolution of new strains of AMR microorganisms.
4. Need for medical research:
Because the above ideas (reflecting the ideas in Papers #2, #3 and #4) are novel, they have not yet been examined and tested by medical science.
It is my hope that the ideas will soon be examined and tested by medical research institutes, hospitals, university medical schools, pharmaceutical companies, healthcare companies, cosmetic companies, manufacturers of cleaning products, manufacturers of sterilisation products, and other organisations.
5. Risk of possible adverse side-effects:
For all treatments recommended in this Paper #5, I repeat the warning in Point 3 of Paper #1:
"Almost all medical treatments carry with them the risk of possible adverse side-effects, either for all people or just for some people.
It is therefore VERY important that, before carrying out any of the treatments recommended in the papers, you first check with your Doctor that it will be safe for you to do.
This is especially important if you are very ill, if you are pregnant or might be pregnant, if you are elderly, or if you are taking any prescribed medication.
I am not a Doctor. And, as we all know, medical science is extremely complex. So, please make sure you first check with your Doctor before carrying out any of the recommended treatments.
And if, after commencing a treatment, you believe it might be causing an adverse side-effect, you should immediately stop the treatment and check with your Doctor."
That concludes Paper #5.
Next is Paper #6, in which I deal with our hair.
