Hospitals Can Make You Sicker

Talk about a flawed health care paradigm that's focused on everything else but true healing! A British documentary team found the antibiotic-resistant superbug MRSA (staph infection) present in six hospitals in public areas used by patients.

A documentary crew at one hospital found overflowing toxic waste and used surgical gloves were found on top of a trash bin outside a public elevator.

Some hospitals disputed the claim, questioning the methodology of the tests and saying it could just be a "harmless" bacteria. Four argued that the presence of MRSA was not proven because the screening tests did not reveal the exact nature of the antibiotic resistant bacteria found.

Stories like these remind me how important it is to stay true to my vision to transform the existing medical paradigm from one addicted to drugs, surgeries and other methods that only temporarily remove specific symptoms to one focused on treating and preventing the underlying causes.

For the record, researchers found late last year allicin, a chemical found in garlic that gives it its flavor, can be used to fight MRSA. Although allicin is toxic, it breaks down quickly and harmlessly when eaten.
