The over-use of antibiotics in the last twenty years has reached its peak, and it has caused the occurrence of drug-resistant bacteria and “superbugs”, whose evolution is much faster than conventional medicine.
In the 1940s, long before the pharmaceutically-derived antibiotics, people used foods and herbs to fight diseases and infections, and nowadays, numerous holistic healers use the same as an alternative to modern drugs, and gain the same, or even improved effects.
These are some of the most effective natural antibiotics which can replace the conventional ones and help you treat health issues:
Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
It has strong antiseptic and antibiotic properties, alkalizes the body and reduces high cholesterol, as well as the risk of developing cancer. It is an astringent which does not contain chemicals, so it can be used to sterilize and disinfect.
Oregano and the oil of oregano
Oregano is a common ingredient in the Italian cuisine, and it has numerous health benefits. It has powerful antibacterial properties, and it also helps digestion and aids in the process of weight loss. It contains an oil, Carvacrol, which efficiently fights bacteria that cause infections. Moreover, it treats digestive infections, especially yeast ones.
Honey has been used by the Ancient Romans to prevent infections and treat wounds. It has been considered to be the best natural remedy for millennia, as it is a natural antibiotic, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial substance.
It has been shown that New Zealand’s Manuka honey is the richest source of antioxidants, and has powerful curative effects. Moreover, honey produces an enzyme, hydrogen peroxide, which prevents bacteria growth and treats infections. I
t also detoxifies the blood, supports the function of the liver, and soothes the digestive system. Honey also strengthens the immune system, and its combination with cinnamon boosts the white blood cells. As most pasteurization procedures kill the antioxidant effects, organic honey is a far better alternative.
Colloidal silver is a popular natural antibiotic, used for centuries. It is a blend of silver particles suspended in fluid. It should be used temporarily, as it contains silver, which may be toxic.
Yet, it kills the enzymes that single-cell bacteria need in order to multiply. If they lack the oxygen they need, viruses and bacteria get killed before they can damage health.
