Top 5 Natural Antibiotics   

 

While antibiotics do have their place in medicine, why not think about reaching for a natural solution when you can? Natural antibiotics can help combat synthetic antibiotic resistant bacteria without the side effects of synthetic antibiotics. Natural antibiotics are much more complex than synthetic antibiotics so bacteria are unable to develop resistance to them and many will help to boost the immune system at the same time.

  1. Garlic - Cultures across the world,have long recognized garlic for its preventive and curative powers. Research has found that garlic can be an effective treatment against many forms of bacteria, including Salmonella. 
  2. Honey - Honey dates all the way back to 2000 B.C. It is one of the most natural antibiotics you can get. Honey has been used as an ointment that helps wounds to heal and prevents or draws out infection. Healthcare professionals today have found it helpful in treating chronic wounds, burns, ulcers, bedsores, and skin grafts. The antibacterial effects of honey are usually attributed to its hydrogen peroxide content.
  3. Ginger - The scientific community also recognizes ginger as a natural antibiotic. Researchers are also exploring ginger's power to combat many strains of bacteria, seasickness and nausea and to lower blood sugar levels.
  4. Echinacea - Echinacea has been used to treat infections for many years. Native American and other traditional healers have used echinacea for hundreds of years to treat bacterial infections and wounds.
  5. Oregano oil - Oregano oil is especially good when dealing with bacterial, parasitic, and fungal overgrowth in the gut especially candida overgrowth. It can also be used for upper respiratory infections and colds because it can fight viruses, inflammation, and allergies as well.

Risks of natural antibiotics - Just because something is labelled natural, it is not necessarily safe. The amounts of concentrations of active ingredients can vary among different brands. Read labels carefully, 

you should also inform your healthcare provider if you're planning to take these supplements.
