Are you scared of Antibiotics? The nomenclature of the word antibiotic, fools people around to call it a drug meant to kill a life. So i wont be surprised how vegans and promoters of nonviolence are against antibiotics and start loving probiotics. Probiotics are good for sure but isnt THE lifeline. When someone is attacking you- best way is to counter attack - as defense is not likely to be enough. But dont get into a misunderstanding that each infection will require antibiotic.Eighty percent of infections are viral and antibiotics have limited role. Also, each organism / bacteria attacking your body is likely to be different in different situation. So "any" antibiotics is not useful in a random. Leave the judgement to doctors what when where. trust your doctor when he or she prescribes an antibiotic. Also Do not force your doctor for an antibiotic prescription when he maynot wish to start on. each antibiotic comes with a predefined course/ sideeffects, and doctors can make it flexible depending on diagnosis and not at your wish. Remember your doctor too will be worried or scared of some drugs and their side effects which can at times be life threatening.

Dr Kondekar's Postulates
Every disease often presents in typical bookish picture... cos these books are written with decades of observations and research. if not so, either we havent read the books or may be its time to go.. read.. or write about
If a disease doesnot improve with therapy; any of following is likely that...
1. If diagnosis is right .. we are surely missing some complications
2. If not so then the treatment of choice is either wrong,inadequate, and incomplete in drugs or dose or duration.
3. If not so..then most likely diagnosis is wrong or incomplete. A twist in diagnosis can bring dramatic results.
4. if not so.. then we need some patience and time for same or new treatment and its effect.
All diseases do not have complete cure; but there is lot more to do in almost every case to improve quality of care and therapy.
