Scott-Mumby almost immediately began research into
controversial alternative medicine.
He started the first successful Food and Environmental
Allergy Clinic in 1979 which rapidly spread to Harley St

I've been saying it for 2 years: the antibiotic era is OVER;
Now an article at MedicineNet.com is
asking the question:
Is this the beginning of the end of the
It's the response to a hot new item published in the
prestigious British journal The Lancet (Emergence
of a new antibiotic resistance mechanism in India, Pakistan, and the
UK: a molecular, biological, and epidemiological study -
11 August 2010).
The latest trouble comes from the fact that resistant germs are
swapping genes and information on how to resist antibiotics. The
bugs don't even have to have faced antibiotic fire to gain
resistance; it's passed from one to another, like caching secret
weapons in a guerilla war!
They are ready for us when we trot out the drugs. The
antibiotics just don't work.
The Technical Stuff
Multiple drug resistance is spreading worldwide among bacteria,
transferred easily by a gene called NDM, which makes germs
impervious to many antibiotics .
The gene evolved in India - NDM stands for
New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase -
but is now widespread in Pakistan and moving rapidly across the
globe, thanks to modern fast transportation (again, exactly as I
have been warning).
The bad news is that NDM has been isolated all across the U.K.,
prompting a national alert there, and has now reached the U.S.,
Canada, Sweden, Australia, and the Netherlands.
"This heralds a new and darker dawn in
infections," said Walsh Timothy R. Walsh, PhD, professor of
infection, immunity, and biochemistry at Wales' Cardiff
"If we looked in India a few years ago we would
not have seen this. But in three or four years it has gone into
1% to 4% of the [gut] bacteria population in India. That is
incredible. It came from nowhere."
Not worried yet? You should be.
The news is worse than you think. This is not about
hospital bugs. Bacteria carrying the NDM gene are spreading
throughout affected communities. It's out; it's on the loose. You
could be carrying the deadly resistance package right now and you
could spread it, without ever being infected or harmed by the
It's bad in the UK. How bad is it in the US?
The CDC admits they just don't know its prevalence. That itself is
Brandi Limbago, PhD, the CDC team leader for
antimicrobial resistance and characterization said,
"The rate it is spreading in the U.K. is
concerning. We don't have info on the U.S. I don't know if we
should be terrified or moderately worried."
And you need to be clear about this: there are no new
drugs in pipeline for NDM superbugs.
"The only possible thing to do is to treat
patients with an antibiotic cocktail and hope it might have an
effect. But that is very difficult to do," professor Walsh says.
"You can use high-level dosing, but the danger is you run into
And Timothy R. Walsh goes on to say,
"We must, must, must consider antibiotic
resistance as a global problem. It is not just in India. This is
a prime example how if it starts in one country, it can spread
massively throughout the globe."
There is only one answer:
alternative antibiotic remedies.
There are hundreds of them and I have catalogued all
the good ones in my book called "How
To Survive In A World Without Antibiotics".
I have been warning of the dangers for some time now and I can only
repeat: you simply cannot afford to be without this knowledge.
Antibiotics can kill within hours and it's no time to start
