The scientific community understands that a paradigm shift in the treatment of infectious diseases is necessary to prevent antibiotics becoming obsolete, and where appropriate, alternatives to antibiotics should be considered.

Alternative therapies are viewed favourably by many patients because they are often not being helped by conventional therapy and they believe there are fewer detrimental side effects. In addition, many report significant improvement while taking complementary and alternative medicines.

As we approach the ‘post-antibiotic’ era a wealth of research now supports long-held beliefs that Melaleuca Alternifolia has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Below is a list of prominent researchers who are leading the way in providing the clinical evidence demonstrating efficacy against bacterial, fungal, or viral infections – as well as specific cancers.
