cut back on anti-biotic use and go with other means such as sulfa

Sulfa IS an antibiotic.

IIRC, sulfa has a different action than antibiotics.

Apparently sulfa doesn't kill the pathogens outright; it prevents them from reproducing, thus allowing the bodies own defenses to prevail.

I don’t think sulfa is an anti-biotic in the ways that anti-biotics work but it is commonly used to combat infections, it just goes on a different principle.
