How do bacteria
become antibiotic resistant?
Antibiotic resistance is a genetic trait,
like brown hair or blue eyes, but unlike these
traits, antibiotic resistance transfers very
quickly between one bacteria and
another. Somehow (and as I understand
it, scientists are still trying to figure this
out) bacteria communicate with each other
extremely rapidly, and through this
communication they are able to transfer
In a study by Dr. Stuart Levy and his
colleagues, they found that introducing
antibiotics into chicken feed very quickly
promoted the spread of antibiotic resistant
bacteria in the chickens’ intestinal tracts, as
well as the intestinal tracts of the people
working with the chickens. The chickens’
guts changed within a week, the farm workers in
3-6 months. Further, the bacteria sampled
were not only resistant to tetracycline (the
antibiotic used), but several other commercial
antibiotics – they had learned and
adapted. (Personally, this freaks me out.)
|The good news –
after they stopped using the antibiotic laced
feed for six months, no detectable levels of
tectracycline resistant organisms were found in
the farm workers.
How are herbal antibiotics different from
|Many pharmaceutical antibiotics
are isolated chemical constituents. They
are one compound/one chemical – penicillin is
penicillin, tetracycline is tetracycline and so
on. This makes them easier for bacteria to
adapt to and counteract. In contrast,
herbs are much more complicated. Garlic
has over 33 sulfur compounds, 17 amino acids and
a dozen other compounds. Yarrow has over
120 identified compounds. (It makes me
look at my herbs with a new appreciation.)
In plants, the whole appears to be more than the
sum of its parts. The different compounds
work together, often to produce better than

Garlic make be taken fresh (as juice or as

increase. Raw garlic may cause stomach
upset and even induce vomiting, if taken without

(1/4 to teaspoon juice as needed).
Capsules may be better tolerated and easier to
take. Ample garlic in food is also
helpful. Watch out for garlic and blood

a cold with a steady stream of echinacea tea.
|Honey: has long been
acknowledged for its antimicrobial properties.
Traditional remedies containing honey were used
in the topical treatment of wounds by diverse
ancient civilizations. Honey inhibits
wound-infecting bacteria. Honey supplies the
nutrients necessary for healthy tissue
regeneration and stimulates the growth of new
blood capillaries. The antibacterial properties
also provide a barrier to cross-infection of
wounds. Honey's high sugar content has an
osmosis effect on wounds. It draws lymph out to
the cells while absorbing moisture and provides
an anti-inflammatory action which reduces
swelling and pain

problems. Juniper detoxifies the system and

Licorice is a powerful immune system
stimulant and antibiotic, and works well with
other herbs. It does have side effects,
especially with overuse. I have found in
practice that the use of the whole root does
in fact produce fewer side effects than the
extracts. However, some of the same side
effects still occur: higher blood pressure,
water retention. These occur with less
frequency and generally occur in those of
middle age – i.e. those who have gone through
menopause. Should be used with caution in
those with high blood pressure.

|Unusual uses for Olive Oil
|Fix a Squeaky Door:
Forget going out and purchasing WD-40. Dab a
little olive oil in your squeaky door hinge and,
voila, the squeak is gone!
Floor Polish: Mix 3/4 part
lemon and 1/4 part vinegar to the oil for a wood
polish. Wipe your floor with the mixture and it
will shine like never before!
Shaving Cream: Run out of
shaving cream? This oil can provide a safe and
natural lubricant that will ensure a close
Remove Stickers: Rub olive oil
onto a sticker or label and let it sit for a few
minutes. Grab an edge and the sticker will peel
right off. No scraping needed, and best of all,
no sticky residue left behind
Shine Stainless Steel and Brass:
Dab some olive oil on a clean rag to make your
brass and stainless steel shine. It also will
prevent streaks, corrosion, and tarnish.
Cat Care: Place a teaspoon of
olive oil in your cat’s food. It will help stop
hairballs and promote a shiny, healthy
coat of fur.
Furniture Polish: Olive oil
will help you remove dust on furniture, all
while giving it a shine. Place in a teaspoon
lemon juice and it creates a non-toxic and
petroleum-free polish that will also gently
clean wood surfaces
Fix Stuck Zipper: Apply olive
oil to a cotton swab and gently apply to the
teeth of your stuck zipper. Then slowly pull the
tab down the zipper.
Remove Paint: After certain art
projects, paint becomes stubborn if left on skin
for too long. Use some olive oil and the paint
will come right off.
Lamp: Purchse specially made
olive oil lamps, or simply pour it into a glass
mason jar and poke a hole in the lid. Add a wick
and you have yourself a DIY oil lamp!
Eye Make-up Removal: Even the heaviest,
drag-show-worthy makeup job can’t stand up to
the removal power of olive oil. Dab a little on
a cotton pad and your eyeshadow, eyeliner and
mascara – including waterproof formulas – will
wipe right off.
Hair Treatment: Sure, you could buy a
fancy commercially-prepared hot oil treatment
for your hair – or you could just grab the
bottle of olive oil that’s already sitting on a
shelf in your kitchen. Apply a few tablespoons
of warmed olive oil to damp hair, massage into
the scalp and rub through the ends, then leave
it on for thirty minutes to an hour. The oil
will clean and condition the scalp, soften the
hair and help the cuticles lay down flat for a
Skin Moisturizer: You might think using
olive oil as a moisturizer would leave you with
oily skin, but that’s not the case. Used in
small amounts, it seeps in completely,
eliminating dryness and reducing the appearance
of wrinkles without clogging pores.
Bath Oil: Add a few drops of your
favorite essential oils to 3-4 tablespoons of
olive oil and you’ve got a custom bath oil that
will gently scent and moisturize your skin.
Throat Soother: Got a big singing
performance or speech coming up? Swallow a
tablespoon of olive oil just before you step on
stage and you won’t have to clear your throat
nearly as often. This trick also works to soothe
itchy throats and lubricate the back of the
mouth and tonsil area, which may lessen snoring.
Ear Ache Relief: A little warm olive oil
is a fast, effective means of relieving painful
ear aches. Just place the bottle in a bowl of
warm water for a few minutes, then pour a few
drops into the affected ear. To cure ear
infections, infuse the olive oil with a crushed
clove of garlic, strain the garlic out and drip
into the ear.
Lice Treatment: Olive oil has long been a
preferred natural treatment to eliminate dreaded
head lice. It reportedly helps to dissolve the
exoskeleton of these little parasites, and
smother the ones that are resistant. Pour it on
to dry hair liberally, comb out any visible lice
with a nit comb and then leave it on under a
shower cap for up to 8 hours. Follow by coating
the hair in apple cider vinegar; leave it on
overnight, shampoo as usual and then comb out
any remaining eggs.
Hairball Prevention: Nobody likes the
sound of a cat loudly hacking up a hairball,
especially since it always seems to happen when
you’re trying to eat or sleep. Help it pass
through your cat’s system more easily by adding
1/4 teaspoon of olive oil to his or her food
Chewing Gum Remover: Whether your child
comes home from school with a mass of sticky
pink bubble gum in her hair or you find yourself
the victim of a wayward wad, you don’t have to
resort to any crazy tricks or – gasp – scissors
to get it out. Apply olive oil to the gum and
the surrounding hair, leave it on for five to
ten minutes and then pull the gum out.
Psoriasis and diaper rash treatment: Olive
oil soothes itchy, burning, irritated skin and
may help rashes heal. Apply it to a baby’s
diaper rash or directly to any eruptions on your
own skin for quick relief. Consuming olive oil
on a regular basis may also be helpful in the
treatment of mild to moderate psoriasis.
