Friends, it can be dangerous to take antibiotics when they aren’t necessary, and they won’t even give you the results you’re looking for. Please be mindful about the risks of antibiotic resistance. We all want relief when we’re suffering through colds, coughs, sore throats, and other illnesses. Acupuncture and other methods are highly effective and worth considering when you’re looking for treatment. The overuse of antibiotics is a growing concern.
