America's worst bacteria... and how to BEAT it!
It's a major source of illness, misery, and even death that's so common, one American gets sick from it nearly EVERY MINUTE of every day.
Yet it gets zero attention from the mainstream media!
Now, new research shows how the number of cases of infection with a dangerous strain of bacteria is growing at an alarming rate.
It's called Clostridium difficile, a.k.a. C. diff, and it can lead to painful gut inflammation and diarrhea so severe you could literally die from dehydration.
C. diff can even lead to deadly blood infections, especially in older patients.
And your odds of picking up this bug are growing: Over about a decade, the number of C. diff cases has jumped by 40 percent, with 500,000 Americans now suffering from these infections every year.
But that's NOT the scary part of the study.
Believe it or not, it gets worse.
If you're at risk -- and, if you're a little older, you ARE at risk -- you could face getting sick with C. diff over and over and over again.
There's been a 200 PERCENT jump in the number of patients who've suffered multiple infections.
That's a sure sign the mainstream approach to both prevention and treatment has failed miserably.
Of course it's failed. Mainstream docs barely have an approach at all!
The study finds that the biggest risk is in folks (especially older ones) who take common meds, including antibiotics and acid reflux drugs.
We already KNOW that these drugs increase the risk of infection, yet there hasn't been any real effort to cut back on them!
Heck, earlier this year, mainstream researchers urged every older patient on aspirin to ALSO take an acid reflux drug to help cut the risk of bleeding in the gut.
So, until they get serious about stopping the cause, these ugly numbers will keep getting worse.
Don't worry too much -- because I've got you covered with some simple steps you can take to slash your risk of infection and bounce back quickly, if you ever do get sick.
If you're in poor health and struggle with your immunity... take or have taken antibiotics... or spend any time at all in a hospital or other care facility... add a probiotic supplement to your daily routine.
Good bacteria can fight off the bad and prevent illness, even when you've been exposed to the germs.
In this case, specifically the beneficial strains known as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, and a probiotic yeast called Sacharomyces boulardii can all prevent illness.
And if you're already infected with C. diff, these same probiotics can also help fight it. They may even prevent recurrence!
