An average visit to a doctor might have you walking out of their office with a prescription for antibiotics. It is the answer they have for almost all symptoms.
When this drug was introduced in the 1930′s, people thought it would be the solution for all viruses and bacteria.
No one thought of the effect it would have on our bodies when taken in large amounts.
Our bodies change constantly and adapt to our surroundings.
This also happens when we get infected with a virus or bacteria. Normally antibodies will step in to create a resistance against the disease. But our bodies don’t get a chance to produce these antibodies if it is overly treated with antibiotics.
Today our average intake of antibiotics has increased drastically because of the hormones going into a lot of our produce.
It is time to bring back the effect of antibiotics but without the actual drug. Who better to ask for advise than our wise grandma’s that had smart tricks to treat diseases in a natural way. If you prefer to leave Big Pharma out of the picture next time you get sick, here is a list for natural antibiotics:
Garlic and Onion
Two of the most common products you will find in a kitchen and the base of so many delicious dishes. Since Hippocrates, the founder of the art of medicine, garlic and onion have been described as medicine.
Garlic is a great medicine for bacterial, viral and fungal infections.
– When acute infections occur, consume at least 3 fresh cloves daily
– Bacterial infections are best treated with crushed garlic
– For intestinal infections use garlic juice
Onions make people cry while cooking because when you cut an onion, you break the cells and release amino acid sulfoxides; it is like the onions self defense mechanism.
What many people don’t know is that this defense mechanism can actually be used as a great medicine. When you feel a cold coming up, cut a onion in half and put in next to your bed while sleeping. Viruses tend to leave the body and nestle in the onion.
When you have a sore throat or an irritating cough cut up an onion and garlic very fine, mix it with honey and a bit of olive oil. It is the best coughing syrup.
Is seen as the gold of the spices; it has so many different usages. It is highly recommend to keep a bottle in your kitchen. As a medical aid it is already used for over 150 purposes.
Polyphenol is the essential active ingredient in turmeric. It is used as a antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties. Turmeric goes great in combination with honey as well.
Add 1 tablespoon to a 100 grams of raw organic honey and you have a great medicine against the flu. When you feel the first symptoms coming up, start with this mixture.

- Day 2 – Take ½ tsp. every two hours during the day.
- Day 3 – Take ½ tsp. three times a day.
- Day 4 etc. continue like day 3 until all the symptoms are gone
Lemon and baking soda
Lemons have a very strong anti-microbial effect with a very wide range of activity against fungal and bacterial infections. They are effective against worms and internal parasites.
It reduces stress and calms the nerves. In combination with baking soda it is alkalizing our body, which makes it easier for the body to heal itself.
The combination of lemon and baking soda destroys the carcinogenic cells and does not affect the healthy cells which can fundamentally be used to fight tumors.
Honey already known for its antibacterial properties since the ancient Romans. They used to treat their wounds with honey to avoid infections. Honey and its curative abilities is found to be a great natural antioxidant and have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antimicrobials and antibacterial traits.
It prevents the formation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria unlike the antibiotic drug.
The best place to look for delicious, medicinal, and unfiltered raw honey is at local honeybee farms.
The best known honey for its medicinal effects is the Manuka honey from New Zealand.
By putting pure, metallic elemental silver in distilled water that is being electrically charged, we create a liquid solution called colloidal silver. It can kill certain germs by binding to and destroying proteins. This allows our own immune system to become more effective in removing residue pathogens. This way it becomes more effective at fending off disease. We can use colloidal silver for infections, colds and the flew, fermentation and parasitic infestations.
Besides the natural antibiotics that are described here, we can also add cayenne pepper, oregano, apple cider vinegar, Grapefruit seed extract, virgin coconut oil and many more on this list.
There are so many natural products that make our body healthy again that it is seems crazy to use the pharmaceutical version. This should be used as a backup, a last resource. When are we going to realize that we can find the solutions for our health a lot closer to home?
