Chapter 16 - Propolis (natural antibiotic)


What would you do if you found out that continuous use of antibiotics could probably be more dangerous than not using them at all.  While it is vital to kill bacteria, antibiotics overuse or abuse can lead to creating antibiotic resistant bacteria or superbug that is absolutely impossible to kill.  According to Stephen Harrod Buhner,  bacteria was one of the oldest forms of life and consequently is highly intelligent and adaptable.  Once one form of bacteria can survive a specific antibiotic they “share” their immunity to such antibiotic with other forms making them all resistant to it.  Instead of saving us from infections hospitals are places where bacteria strives the most.  CRE(Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae) or MRSA(Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) are the leading causes of death of patients with a compromised immune system.  Fortunately, there are still ways to deal with bacterial infections without man made antibiotics.  One of the options is a “product” created by bees called propolis.

Bees make it by harvesting the sap of needles of evergreen trees or resin covering the newly formed buds of deciduous trees and then combining it with their saliva.  Propolis, named after two greek words Pro- before and Polis - city or “before the city,” is a special substance that bees use to seal the gaps and cracks in the beehive and to protect the hive from the invaders.  Having strong antibacterial properties, propolis or bees’ glue is used to cover “foreign” objects like insects or mice that are too heavy to carry outside to prevent the spread of disease of decaying bodies.Known for such incredible properties, propolis have been used for thousands of years by different cultures. Egyptians used propolis for embalming their dead, Greek and Roman physicians used it as mouth disinfectants and wounds and burns ointments. Propolis was even used by Stradivari as a violin varnish.  Although not as popular as it was before, this awesome medicine can take care of numerous health issues as it has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.  Available in different forms propolis can be applied topically in various skin treatments from acne and eczema through wounds and burns.  Using propolis in mouthwashes and toothpastes could prevent tooth decay, gingivitis and stomatitis.  Additionally it can help with various respiratory infections, cold sores and even external tumors.  Don’t forget to test it for allergic reaction first.
