With the growing threat of antibiotic resistance so much in the news, all eyes are on efforts to combat drug-resistant infections. The crisis has become so serious that the United Nations convened in general assembly for only the fourth time in its history to address this global health issue. The UN has declared antibiotic-resistant superbugs a “fundamental threat”.
In 2013, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a list of drug-resistant bacterial and fungal infections and classified them as “urgent,” “serious” or “concerning.” These classifications pertain to how “dangerous, prevalent and difficult” each is to treat.
Approximately 700,000 people die every year from antimicrobial resistance (and because there is not a worldwide system in place to keep track, this number is likely much lower than the actual numbers.) An estimated 10 million people could be affected by the year 2050.
Shu Lam, a young Ph.D. student from the University of Melbourne in Australia, has introduced a way to fight superbugs without antibiotics. So far, her approach has only been tested on lab mice but the possibility of its applications in protecting human beings is encouraging.
Ms. Lam has introduced to mice a star-shaped polymer that kills 6 varieties of drug-resistant bacterial strains in a lab setting. These polymers rip apart cell walls, targeting and killing bacteria.
Scientists predict Lam’s breakthrough “Could change the face of modern medicine.” Here’s hoping her polymerized peptides might offer up a life-changing work around in what is rapidly becoming a “post-antibiotic world.”
At Inspired Nutrition, we were amazed when we read about Lam’s work because nature has already designed something to do the same thing… Monolaurin is one of the most effective bacterial killers (as well as some viruses) in the human body.
Monolaurin has been identified as the key contributor to the legendary health of the South Sea Islanders. Upon consuming coconut oil, their bodies convert about 4% of the lauric acid in coconut to monolaurin!
However, not everyone wants to eat the amount of coconut, or coconut oil it would take for our bodies to make enough monolaurin to fight an infection. What we have done is concentrated the monolaurin so that it is ready to be used by the body. Thus, our Monolaurin supplements make it much easier (and tolerable for many) to get the monolaurin needed to defeat bacterial attacks.
Not only does monolaurin not allow bacteria to develop a resistance like Staphylococcus aureus, but it is known to help these resistant bacteria from infecting you in the first place!
This is even more important when we look at the types of bacteria that monolaurin will kill; Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae, Groups A, streptococci gram-positive organisms and some gram-negative organisms (Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Helicobacter pylori). Monolaurin was even 5000 times more inhibitory against Listeria monocytogenes than ethanol (alcohol).
Even more encouraging is that Monolaurin does not produce resistant microorganisms (super bugs) during use.
Good Things In, Bad Things Out!
Putting good things INTO our bodies – the first step we need to do. This means eating nutritious foods as much as possible and taking our Ultimate Foundation multi-vitamin, mineral and herb formula.
Taking bad things OUT of our bodies – the second step we need to do. Today’s environment causes our bodies to absorb many toxic heavy metals and chemical toxins. These toxins cause many of the physical problems people experience. Our Body Detox helps remove these toxins.
What Does Detoxing Do?
The nutrients in our Body Detox help the body get rid of harmful substances through a process called chelation in which they bond to the harmful toxins making it easier for the body to filter them out.
Scientific Studies have shown that detoxing helps:

*The best time to take it? – Just before bedtime. You can take the capsules or open them and add the mix to some yogurt or a drink before bedtime. Don’t spread the capsules out during the course of the day. It may interfere with normal nutritional and supplement intake.
It is amazing how Lyme disease can cause incredibly deep-seated controversies. This often pits you against your doctor and insurance company. Even members of the medical establishment disagree with each other. One of the key points of their contention can be whether or not chronic Lyme is even a real condition at all.
Recent research at Johns Hopkins of 61 people, who had been treated for Lyme disease, showed people were still experiencing nasty symptoms. They call it “post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome” (PTLDS). They admit, “It is a real disorder that causes severe symptoms in the absence of clinically detectable infection”. The condition if often mixed in with the wording, “Chronic Lyme disease”.
The study is helping some doctors recognize that Chronic Lyme disease is a legitimate condition – not just invented by people!
Of course, we have seen and been solving this problem for people for years. Chronic symptoms can be caused by the Lyme spirochetes burrowing into cells and causing re-occurring symptoms as the cells die – releasing the bacteria into the body again.
Protective biofilms can also keep antibiotics from killing all the bacteria, allowing it to increase again, even after treatment.
We have solved these problems naturally and are approaching 56,000 people who have used our Lyme protocol. Reports back are showing our Monolaurin and Bio-Fibrin to be over 90% effective in bringing a person back to wellness. Our ongoing prevention, with our Maintenance Protocol, has done even better.

No need to worry, there is a natural answer for treating your furry friend – and its simple. Monolaurin!
(Look out for signs of a Herxheimer reaction. If this happens simply stop for a day or two then resume at a lower dosage.)
