Can Antibiotics Become An Addiction? Astounding Truths For You!

In order to answer this question, we need to learn more about addiction and antibiotics;  and compare the characteristics of each.

ADDICTION is being abnormally tolerant to and dependent on something that is potentially physically or psychologically habit-forming; and primarily detrimental to health and wellbeing. More times than not; people do not even realize, or recognise having an addiction; until it is too late. They have this overpowering sense of need; that spirals totally out of control.

Addiction has two defining characteristics: Physical Dependency and Tolerance.

You are probably saying to yourself: “What in the world does all this have to do with antibiotics?” I am glad you asked. I hope to answer that question for you by providing you with some truths you may not know.

ANTIBIOTICS is a substance, such as penicillin or streptomycin, derived from certain fungi, bacteria, and other organisms, that can destroy or inhibit the growth of other microorganisms. They can be broad-spectrum (active against a wide range of pathogens) or specific (active against one); primarily used in the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.

If antibiotics are so successful in fighting infection; why are patients continually returning to their doctor saying: “Doc! This medication that you gave me is not working; I need something stronger. I am still sick.”… Here is another scenerio: They build up a resistance to the antibiotic; causing the medication to have no effect. Are you beginning to see some similarities between addiction and antibiotics?

Prolonged use of antibiotics is harmful to the good bacteria in your body, which is vital to your wellbeing. When this happens other complications present themselves. Maybe you will relate to some of these: diarrhea; constipation; allergies; nausea & vomitting and the list goes on. Plus all these miserable symptoms; your immune system is weakened, and you are vulnerable to every germ and “superbug” that comes along.

Antibiotics Are Not Effective Against Flus And Viral Infections!

Now if that is not enough food for thought…Here is another astounding truth for you to digest. Antibiotics are often used on industrial farms;  to treat sick animals and control poor sanitation.  In fact…70 % of all antibiotics sold in the U.S. are given to healthy food animals.

No wonder we are building up resistance and developing addiction to these harmful drugs. We are actually ingesting antibiotics; on a daily basis; through most of the meats that we eat! Folks! That is one staggering and scary thought!

I have clearly stated to you that the “Cons outweigh the Pros” when it comes to antibiotics. Now! What are we going to do about it?

It is time to open your ears and your eyes to the benefits of natural alternatives. I have been taking a natural supplement… Nano Silver, (that changed my life and restored my health) for over two years. Contrary to antibiotics; Nano Silver does not harm your good bacteria;  it destroys virus and bad bacteria; it provides benefits that will boggle the mind! Instead of waiting for the next “superbug to get you; make the change today.


Blessings & Health

    I so believe the message here, and have often thought about it as well. It is funny when you read something that has also been on your mind. The cool part is as you read, you think out loud, I was just thinking this very thing the other day.
    Keep educating people Linda, so many need to be brought to the light.
    Thanks for all you do with your research and blog,

  • I had never thought of antibiotics as addictive before. It is a valid point. In addition to the points you have made, when the bacteria become resistant, that affects not only the person who has taken the antibiotics, but everyone who is later exposed to the now resistant bacteria. It is a vicious cycle that results in ever more deadly pathogens. In essence, overuse of antibiotics has contributed to new deadly diseases.

    Wow, Linda you have brought up a great point. I am sure most people don’t think about antibiotics being addictive or even know that we ingest them on a daily basis anyway. I know I sure did not. Thank you for sharing this very important information. Keep up the great research……Blog Love

    Its amazing that people are so quick to run to their doctor and say I need something because I’m sick instead of reaching for a natural cure.
    There will come a time when the medication simply won’t work anymore.

    I ran into this issue just the other day. An unfortunate accident to a friend of mine has 40% of his body covered in 2nd and 3rd degree burns. Well they were using antibiotics part of his treatment — well as things progressed he now has pneumonia. It’s just one issue after another once they started down this path.

    I try not to use anti-biotics unless I absolutely have too. Great post!

  • Oh I have seen this so much with people – they feel that if it come from a doctor it’s not addiction but my mom when thru this same thing and am so glad that you are getting the word out.

    Thanks for your permission to copy this and make a squidoo lens as I feel this message should be spread to as many people as we can.

    Thanks Linda

    Linda this is great information to get out there. People are so conditioned to go and get antibiotics to solve little issues that the body can heal it’s self. It sure is an addiction for so many…Thanks:)
