Quick Tip: Antibiotics Don’t Fight Most Sinus Infections

The new study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, and reported on Fox News, “found antibiotics didn’t ease patients’ sinus symptoms or get them back to work any sooner than an inactive placebo pill.”

So what should you do? There are several facts to keep in mind. The first is,  when healthy your body is programmed to fight off these infections more efficiently than any antibiotic. The fever, chills, coughing, and runny noes are all symptoms of the cold. These symptoms are also the bodies way of fighting the infection. The fever kills the infection by raising your body temperature above the temperature at which the infection can survive, the cough is expelling the germs and dead tissue from your body, and the mucus is full of lysosomes that kill both bacteria and viruses. Sure you fell terrible but this is how you get better.

So next time you get that tickle in the back of your throat, let the symptoms get you better. Don’t supress the fever and the cough and also let mucus do its job. Why not help your body. Wrap your self up in a blanket, drink hot liquids (raises the temperature in the throat helping kill the infection), and keep yourself hydrated. You may fell terrible but you will often recover quicker than suppressing your bodies natural immune response and it will work far better than antibiotics.
