(Impetigo contagiosa, Bullous impetigo, Ecthyma)
Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection characterized by microscopic pus-filled blisters. It is caused when either of the staphylococcus or streptococcus bacteria find their way into broken or irritated skin, perhaps from an insect bite, a cut or other form of trauma to the skin. (Both types of bacteria can live harmlessly on your skin until they enter through a cut or other wound and cause an infection.)
As a result of their invasion the infected skin becomes inflamed and sore. Pustules form and after a few days these burst to form a ‘crust’. Itching is common, but can spread the infection to other parts of the body. Why is it so infectious?… Staphylococcus bacteria produce a toxin. This toxin attacks a protein that helps bind skin cells together. Once this protein is damaged germs quickly spread.
Impetigo mainly affects infants and children, usually appearing on their face, especially around the nose and mouth. Signs of impetigo are pimple-like lesions surrounded by reddened skin. These lesions fill with pus, which break down over 4-6 days.
Impetigo can even potentially lead to more serious complications if the underlying cause is not corrected. These may include Poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN) (a kidney inflammation), Meningitis and Cellulitis.
In adults Impetigo can be caught through direct contact with lesions or with nasal carriers. It can also be caught directly, for example through another injury to the skin, often by another dermatological condition such as dermatitis.
Children are especially susceptible to infections because their immune systems are still developing. This also goes a long way to explaining why Impetigo is picked up by adults. Defective, weak or damaged immune systems allow the strep or staph bacteria to take hold more easily. This is usually when your natural defensive and healing processes have been weakened, such as in those with diabetes or a heart condition, or those developed as a result of long-term nutritional neglect and toxicity exposure. It is believed that many of these issues are a consequence of industrialised farming, the toxicity that this produces, food processing techniques and, of course, the reduced essential nutrient intake of a Western diet a typical stressful lifestyle.
The human body requires a balanced diet that provides nutrients, minerals and vitamins for a functional and effective immune response. Immune function and ability is often reduced by factors including hormonal status, age and nutritional status. Malnutrition and heavy metal ingestion are common in Western adults, resulting in a depressed immune system that raises the risk of infection.
The typical form of conventional treatment usually consists of topical or oral antibiotics. These may effect a short-term solution, but do not cover the underlying deficiency.
The Bionetics solution
If it were possible for you to be made aware of your individual weaknesses you would be able to take steps to protect your body’s natural processes and help prevent/heal illness…
At Bionetics we have developed an innovative new diagnostic test that can identify the factors impacting on YOUR personal health and provide you with the ability to take charge of your life and achieve your best level of health.
How the test works
The Bionetics test requires you to send us just a few strands of your hair.
The root of your hair stores information relating to your body’s chemistry and energy. This information is held in the form of energy patterns or ‘signatures’. These very subtle energy patterns consist of the hundreds of natural elements that make up and affect your body processes.
At the Bionetics laboratory your hair is scanned by a very sensitive electronic machine. This machine captures the energy patterns that represent your unique personal data. Your data is then processed by a powerful computer program, which compares your readings with established averages to highlight your personal problem areas. Your data is then processed again to identify solutions that have previously proven effective for your personal set of conditions.
Once completed, your test results are reviewed by a qualified practitioner who will provide a full written report advising on steps you can take to improve your state of health.
The information gained from this test will enable your Bionetics practitioner to create an action plan specific to you. From here you can begin to adapt your health regime and rebuild your natural defences to speed up your body’s healing processes.
Your test results will include advice on personal food intolerances (and a list of foods to avoid), nutritional and dietary recommendations to combat deficiencies and malnutrition, guidance on how to reduce acidity and rebalance your natural body pH, and details of herbs and homeopathic solutions that could help purge toxic and pathogenic accumulations, increase nutrient absorption and create the correct probiotic environment for your body.
Ordering your test
Don’t forget taking the bionetics hair test is easy, non-invasive and affordable and could provide you with the solution to help you overcome your condition and improve your wellbeing.
In fact the bionetics hair test probably represents the best ‘value for money’ health test available in the market today. It covers most of the major illness causing factors at a fraction of the cost and in a half the time of many other tests.
