Stealth Pathogens: Our Microbial Burden

Bold text

Antimicrobial resistance is considered one of 10 threats to global health – the ability of bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi to resist the medicines originally considered some of modern medicine’s greatest successes threatens to send us back to a time when we were unable to easily treat infections such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, and salmonellosis. 

The interesting thing is that these antimicrobial pharmaceuticals originally came from soil-based organisms such as strep. These days, genetically engineered microbes produce vast quantities of the human hormone insulin as well as vaccines from genetically engineered Saccharomyces yeast

We have the good, the bad, and the very very bad microbes all living together which include virus, fungus, bacteria and parasites. We harbor at least 100 trillion microbial cells and a quadrillion viruses in and on us-collectively known as our microbiota, and the genes they encode are known as our microbiome.

Please join me for a conversation about the microbes -and therapies we can use that don’t create microbial resistance. I began this conversation with a virtual study group as a sneak peek. Now, please join me for an expanded version of this topic here:

Discover the power of our microbiota and explore therapies that don’t create resistance. From bacteria to parasites, fungus, and viruses, learn about the invisible universe of microbes and the importance of understanding the good, the bad, and the very bad microbes we harbor. Protect your patients from microbial threats with our expert guidance and discussion.

All webinars, once up on my website, are available to view anytime including watching it on your TV (most TVs have YouTube on them, even if they’re 10 years old, like mine). Please feel free to share these webinars with anyone-including your patients. It’s another way I intend to provide exceptional support to you, the practitioner.
