Antibiotic Properties of Fulvic Acid
While fulvic acid is not technically considered to be an antibiotic in the traditional Western Medicine model, it does have powerful antibiotic properties. Unlike antibiotic medicine, fulvic acid will not lead to antibiotic resistant strains of disease which can happen with pharmaceutical medicine. Additionally, fulvic acid does not kill the benefitial flora of the intestines as pharmaceutcal antibiotics do.
We have found that people who take fulvic acid and live a generally healthy lifestyle rarely get colds or the flu. Also, many report an improvement in their netagive allergy symptoms.
Fulvic acid can also be used as an effective topical antiseptic, especially when the infecting organism has not been determined as in patients presenting with severely infected burns. Burns are firstly populated with Gram-positive organisms which, after 5-7 days, are replaced by Gram-negative organisms. Among the organisms most frequently isolated from burn wounds include S. aureus, P. aeruginosa and C. albicans and lately MRSAs’ which are becoming increasingly more common in burn wounds (Schwarz, 2005). The antimicrobial action of fulvic acid covers the above spectrum of microbes including the MRSAs’.
Studies have also shown that fulvic acid works synergistically with the prescripbed antibiotics peniciillin and gentamicin. It is theorized that the fulvic acid allows for greater absorption of the antibiotics which increases their effectiveness.
