Health and Fitness News
I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

When Antibiotics No Longer Do Their Job

The emergence of superbugs is a growing public health concern.

You're not feeling well and you go to the doctor. You may or may not test positive for a bacterial infection, and your doctor decides to order you an antibiotic just in case. Does this sound familiar? Unfortunately, unnecessary, frequent prescription and misuse of antibiotics continues to happen and is at the root of what's now one of medicine's leading causes for concern.

When the use of antibiotics became widespread back in the 1940s, illnesses that were once life threatening became easily treatable with a round of medication. Think of how many times antibiotics have help you and your family quickly recover from illnesses like strep throat, ear infections, and various skin infections.

Bacteria, however, are smarter than you think. After repeated exposure to drugs meant to kill them, bacteria are able to develop ways of surviving and multiplying. Called antibiotic resistance, this phenomenon now threatens the effectiveness of these vital medications.

Bacteria that have become resistant to certain kinds of antibiotics are now called superbugs. Here's what you should know about them.

The Future

To help ease people's fears and prepare for the coming years, many countries have created plans to fight these bacterial threats and scientists continue to develop new, more powerful drugs, methods for faster diagnostic testing, and treatments.

Everyone can do their part as well in the fight against superbugs. A good start is to practice good hygiene to prevent the spread of bacteria and use antibiotics only when absolutely necessary and carefully follow the directions that come with the prescription. The more times you take antibiotics and the more time you spend in a hospital, the greater your risk for a superbug.

Five Superbug Threats

Considered a serious threat, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, called MRSA for short, is untreatable with certain antibiotics but can be treated with other medications. Staph infection is a bacterium many people unknowingly have on their skin, but when it comes in contact with a wound the infection can spread to the blood and surrounding tissue.

A second serious threat is the multidrug-resistant acinetobacter, bacteria found in water and soil that can live on your skin. Most often found in hospitals, this bacterium spreads easily and can cause serious brain, lung, and urinary tract infections that are difficult to treat with antibiotics.

Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE) is an urgent threat. This type of bacteria is found in your gut and has become resistant to all antibiotics. Hospital and nursing home patients are the most susceptible to a CRE infection, which causes a blood infection that kills half of those infected. CRE bacteria have been found on medical tools even after they've been properly cleaned.

Another urgent threat is neisseria gonorrhoeae, bacteria that causes the sexually transmitted disease (STD) gonorrhea. In years past, this STD was treated with antibiotics but has now become increasingly resistant.

Called C. diff for short, clostridium difficile is yet another urgent threat. This infection causes life-threatening diarrhea that's largely unresponsive to antibiotics. The infection begins with a round of antibiotics that kills both good and bad bacteria in your gut, giving C. diff a chance to multiply and spread from person to person.

Their Prevalence

In the United States alone, each year more than 2 million people are infected by superbugs that don't respond to your normal round of antibiotics. Of these, 23,000 die.

Until recent years, superbugs were limited mainly to hospitals and healthcare facilities where bacteria congregate and sick people are more susceptible to infections. Today, however, they are reaching the public in malls, grocery stores, and homes. If a plan isn't made, many of modern medicine's advances will be lost.
