Antibiotics are one of the most prescribed medicines in the world, and they are used for a number of different reasons.
These drugs however, have many side effects. The number one side effect is that you actually become immune to them if you use antibiotics regularly. This will make you prone to new conditions and infections in the future.
Those side effects should not be taken lightly, and it is much, much safer to turn to natural products, because in 99% of the cases, products that come from the nature have no side effects whatsoever.
The five best choices:
Garlic can treat many health-related conditions, and it is an excellent choice against common cold. It contains allicin, a powerful and potent compound that can protect you against parasites, yeast infections, bacteria and Candida.
This active component also contains a spectrum of antimicrobial properties. No need to mention that it should be taken raw.
Recipe for ear infection
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 1 to 2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil
How to prepare it:
Put the extra virgin olive oil in a container and then put the crushed garlic clove in it, and let it stay there for 30 minutes. Then, strain it using a gauze. The remedy will need to be warmed, so put it in a glass and then place the glass in a container filled with warm water. Please make sure that you do not overheat the oil, because the heat will kill all the healthy properties.
At this point, you are done preparing the remedy. Pour a couple of drops in your ear, cover it with cotton and repeat this procedure every 3-4 hours. It will clear your ear infection in a matter of days.
- Raw honey
The raw honey contains a natural enzyme that releases hydrogen peroxide, and that makes it ideal when it comes to treating open wounds and infections.
You need to remember that you need unpasteurized, organic, raw honey. If you buy processed honey, you will not be able to experience the health benefits, because those benefits have been previously destroyed during the process.
- Apple cider vinegar
ACV contains antiseptic, anti-fungal and antibiotic properties, which give it the role of a natural body alkalizer. It can also help you lower the levels of your cholesterol, manage your weight and it can effectively fight against heartburn.
It can be added to salads, or it can be used topically. In order to relieve arthritis pain, you have to soak your hands and feet in a combination of one glass of ACV and six glasses of water.
- Oregano oil
Oregano oil is packed with anti-fungal and antiviral properties. When dealing with pathogenic bacteria, it will not touch or harm the good bacteria. This means that this oil is a combination that is more powerful than anything that the pharma industry can throw at you. The most important fact of all is that it will not increase your resistance towards antibiotics.
To make sure that you chose the right oil, make sure that the one that you buy contains more than 70% carvacrol.
This type of oil can be used in situations of:
- Foot or nail fungus – You can dilute this oil with olive oil and place it directly on the skin of your feet or your nails. You may also add a couple of teaspoons of this combination in a container of water, large enough to fit your feet, and then soak them inside.
- Sinus infections – You can treat sinus infections just by adding a few drops of oregano oil in a larger pot, that is filled with steaming hot water. Cover your head with a towel, and then inhale the vapors.
- Colloidal silver
Alfred Searle, a founder of the Searle pharmaceutical company, discovered the antibiotic properties of colloidal silver in the early 1900’s. He confirmed that it has the power to destroy even the most lethal pathogens.
It was later proven to be very efficient against microbes, and the best part of all, is that it does not do harm to the host. This is even confirmed by researches that are conducted by today’s standards.
Colloidal silver can even fight against microbes that are resistant to antibiotics, like MRSA, bird flu and SARS.
But be warned that it can only be used externally. It can be used of ear infections or skin infections. The reason why it must only be used externally is because if ingested, it can damage the good bacteria that are located inside of your body, and still, this damage would be not as great as the damage that comes from the prescribed antibiotics.
