We continue to attack our own microbiome and the planet’s (an area the size of Panama is wiped out by deforestation every year) at the same time, with uncanny timing. As if the two were tied together.
The drug-resistant backlash is forcing us to look for natural alternatives that were crossed out of medicinal books in the last century. A Science Digest article about silver as a germ fighter, for example, was largely ignored in 1978. Today silver is getting its fame back in modern lab conditions (yes, it even kills superbugs), as are countless other natural antibiotics (see table below).
To the Hunter-Gatherer these medicines come naturally. They know the secret.
About bugs and beings.

(Silver, the Mightiest Germ Fighter)
Silver kills over 650 disease-causing organisms, and resistant strains fail to develop. Silver is the best all-round germ fighter we have, and it is absolutely non-toxic!
Doctors report that, taken internally, it works against syphilis, cholera, malaria, diabetes, and severe burns.
