Synthetic antibiotics are the most commonly prescribed “medicines.” Excessive consumption of such drugs affects digestion and, ironically, weakens the resistance to infections.
In this article we give you five worlds most powerful antibiotics and natural antibiotics that will improve your health condition without affecting your digestive tract.
Garlic provides numerous benefits as a natural antibiotic, such as combating fungal and microbial infections. According to a 90-day study of Aged Garlic Extract (AGE), treating cold and flu with garlic reduces its severity as well as the number of symptoms.
Before use, cut the garlic and let it sit for about 15 minutes to release allicin, one of its active compounds. Then, add garlic in the last 5 minutes of cooking in order to keep its active compounds which are sensitive to heat.
This herb has been long used to neutralize venom from snakebites, due to its antiviral, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties. It contains polysaccharides which active immune response, providing an immune boost and anti-inflammatory effect.
3. Colloidal silver
Colloidal silver has been known as an effective antibiotic for centuries. In the early 1900s, Alfred Searle, founder of the Searle pharmaceutical company, discovered that it could kill the most deadly pathogens. Searle stated that applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishing results. The main advantage was that it was rapidly fatal to microbes without toxic action on its host. Recent research has also stated that colloidal silver can destroy antibiotic resistant microbes like MRSA, the bird flu, and SARS.
4. Oil of oregano
Oregano oil is not just a culinary spice – it is one of the most effective remedies against the flu and colds. Oregano oil possesses powerful antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal and antioxidant properties which can defeat many infections. It is especially effective against the novovirus, and according to studies, taking 600 mg. of it for 6 weeks can eliminate most parasites in the digestive tract. We recommend taking 1500 mg. oregano oil capsules during the flu season as a preventative measure, and 3500 mg. capsules in divided daily doses to treat acute conditions. You can apply 1-2 drops of the oil diluted in olive or coconut oil topically to treat problems such as Athlete’s foot or ringworm. Inhaling the steam of a few drops of oregano oil added to boiling water can reduce infections and sinus congestion.
5. Raw Honey
Raw honey is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and antimicrobial properties. It also contains propolis and bee pollen, both of which boost immunity and provide antibiotic properties.
Honey has a wide plethora of uses, from reducing coughs and healing foot ulcers in diabetics to reducing postoperative complications and relieving pain better than acetaminophen and commonly used pain-relievers.
Due to its hydrogen peroxide content, raw honey is effective against MRSA as well, a fact which is backed up by science. It has been found that Manuka honey from New Zealand is the most effective against MRSA, due to its high methylglyoxal content.
“…clinical trials have found that Manuka honey is effective against more than 250 strains of bacteria, including:
– MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
– MSSA (methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus)
– VRE (vancomycin-resistant enterococci)
– Helicobacter Pylori (which can cause stomach ulcers)”
