Anti biotics and Chinese Medicine

I note that the news is awash with the latest on antibiotics with the doomy prediction that operations in hospitals may be severely compromised in 20 years because of bug resistance to known antibiotics. Research is not a favourable option for the pharmaceutical industry since time limited medications are not lucrative. What to do??
Chinese Medicine seeks to srtrengthen the system of the patient making their immune system stronger and thus more resilient to viruses. It does not 'bomb' all the bacteria, killing the offending bug but also all the good guys thereby rendering the patient weaker in the long run.
These warfare tactics are crude in the sense that eventually the smart organisms will develop resistance. Meanwhile the system it is invading has become weakened. We need to make some very serious decisions about our medical future.
