Simple treatment for GBS

Group B streptococcus (GBS) is a bacterial infection found in some pregnant women and is found in about 25 % of all healthy women. But a pregnant mother can pass GBS to the baby during vaginal delivery and GBS infects about 1 in every 2,000 babies in the United States. Because vaginal GBS is very transient, the CDC recommends screening for vaginal strep B between the 35th and 37th week of pregnancy. Of course, the treatment of choice is IV antibiotics during delivery to reduce the chance of infecting the baby. The best treatment, of course, is maintaining a healthy intestinal flora before conception and throughout the pregnancy to keep GBS in check in the first place. The general overuse of antibiotics has helped produce GBS and more usage of antibiotics to treat it is not making it go away. Crunching raw garlic cloves and swallowing them for 2-3 weeks before delivery is one of the best ever remedies for GBS.
