When was the last time you had antibiotics? You may have also encountered a slew of unpleasant side effects, such as excessive weakness and digestive issues. Pharmaceutical antibiotics can kill most bacteria, but the cost is prohibitively high – at least in my opinion. Antibiotics destroy all types of bacteria in the body, including the beneficial bacteria in your gut. Antibiotics attack our gut, which seriously damages our immunity. Our immune system relies on balanced gut microflora, and when these bacteria are destroyed by antibiotics, we become more vulnerable to illness and ill health. Furthermore, superbugs have developed resistance to the majority of antibacterials, rendering them virtually useless in today’s world. These facts have inspired many people to search out natural remedies that not only combat infection but also cure the body. Natural antibiotics, on the other hand, have been used for thousands of years and have been proven successful for decades.
Have you ever wondered how people handled bacterial infections in the past? Yeah, we’re about natural antibiotics, which were used even before the first man-made antibiotic (Penicillin) was discovered in 1928. Antibiotics are commonly used to kill bacteria and stop them from spreading. Natural antibiotics are the most effective since they have little to no side effects. They also help in the fight against bacteria that have developed resistance to some antibiotics. Antimicrobial properties can be found in a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, essential oils, and herbs. We’ve compiled a list of a few incredible antibiotics found in nature that work just as well as prescription antibiotics. Take a glance.
Turmeric, one of the most studied herbs, is as effective as 14 different medications, including aspirin, ibuprofen, sulindac, phenylbutazone, naproxen, indomethacin, diclofenac, dexamethasone, celecoxib, and tamoxifen. It’s particularly effective at reducing inflammation in the body, which is a big contributor to the majority of chronic diseases we see today. Every day, strive to eat at least a tablespoon of turmeric!
Cinnamon is commonly used to produce chocolates, soups, liquors, beverages, and pickles. Essential oil is made from all parts of the plant and can be used to treat a variety of ailments. Cinnamaldehyde and eugenol, two active compounds in cinnamon, have antimicrobial properties against bacteria that cause pneumonia, urinary tract infection, fever, and skin infection. Cinnamon oil should be consumed in moderation, as toxicity is a major concern. It is preferable to seek medical advice before using it.
Echinacea is a well-known herb that grows wild in Eastern and Central North America. It works wonders for illnesses like the common cold and flu, as well as other upper respiratory infections. Urinary tract infections, vaginal yeast infections, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, HPV, tonsillitis, streptococcus infections, syphilis, typhoid, malaria, ear infections, warts, and nose and throat infections are all diseases that the herb can help with. If you take this herb for more than 2 weeks, your immune system will be weakened.
Phenols, flavonoids, and polyphenols are found in blueberries. E.coli, Listeria monocytogenes, and Salmonella are among the bacteria that the compound can destroy. It also assists in the preservation of healthy bacteria (lactobacillus) in our digestive system.
Myrrh has been used to treat indigestion, ulcers, colds, cough, asthma, lung congestion, arthritis pain, cancer, leprosy, spasms, and syphilis since ancient times. It’s most widely used to treat bacterial oral infections (like mouth sores), bronchitis, and sore throats. It can only be used for a maximum of two weeks at a time.
Garlic is an antibiotic that is protective against food pathogens. Pathogens can be present in the food we eat, posing a health risk to customers. Because of its antibacterial properties against many types of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus, this strong natural antibiotic may help reduce the risk of food poisoning.
Colloidal silver’s ability to control antibiotic-resistant superbugs has been extensively studied, including one study in which over 650 different disease-causing pathogens were killed in minutes after being exposed to a small drop of colloidal silver. Every day, take 1-2 teaspoons of colloidal silver and keep it under your tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing.
According to a study, gingerols, a phenol phytochemical compound found in fresh ginger, have antibacterial properties against all forms of oral bacteria, including Porphyromonas gingivalis (which causes gingivitis), Porphyromonas endodontics (which causes gum disease), and Prevotella intermedia (which causes periodontitis) (causes periodontitis).
Oregano oil is one of the most strong sources of the phenol ingredient thymol in the world. In the treatment of MRSA staph infections, it was recently discovered to be substantially stronger than any of the 18 currently used antibiotics. When buying oregano oil, make sure the oil is obtained from a potent oregano plant with a carvacrol concentration of at least 70%. Adults can take up to 8 drops three times a day in a glass of water.
Manuka honey is by far the best raw honey to eat. It’s so successful that it’s available in a “medical grade” form for use in hospitals to treat burns and wounds. It’s also used to destroy bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus and Heliobacter pylori, which cause stomach ulcers. Honey can be consumed normally, with a couple of teaspoons per day sufficing.
