Antibiotics aren't the strict purview of your local doctor. Nature is full of natural antibiotics as well, including herbal remedies, vegetables, and simple home remedies of all kinds!
Garlic might be the most commonly recognized food with potent antibiotic properties, but cayenne peppers, honey, black tea, green tea, citrus fruits, and a host of other natural antibiotic foods, essential oils, tinctures, and other possibilities are available.
Natural Cures: Ginger is taken with sushi because it is a potent antibiotic, oregano oil is frequently used to kill fungal and other skin infections, cumin and cinnamon are spicy options, and colloidal silver is a very potent antibiotic for some health concerns. Vinegar too is said to be one of many other natural antibiotic options.
Sometimes the doctor's potent antibiotics are the best course of medical action, but if you would like to pursue a more natural route in other cases, consider the following natural antibiotic ideas!
[YEA] My son was born C-Section and was diagnosed with Asthma at 4-months old. I read Prevention Magazine about ASTRAGALUS, it is a PROBIOTIC. We have not taken antibiotic in over 15 years. It builds up your white blood cells that fight infections. It is also antiviral fights viruses. Research it on webmd.com. When I worked at the hospital, a nurse researched it and said it prevents cancer cells from dividing to multiply. And stabilizes blood sugar if diabetic. I had Bronchitis real bad. I was using son's inhaler. I took 3-500mg. pills Three times a day for 3 days on 4th day went to the Doctor, had a blood test, doctor said I didn't need an antibiotic. She previously said she thought I would need 4 prescriptions of antibiotics back to back! She knew I researched herbal remedies and asked what I took. I told her and she went back to school to learn Wholeness Medicine.
Ted;I was looking for an herb for my kitten where she was sicker then usual, I noticed in one of your older messages to use peruvian bark? how-ever it is a bark from peru but the given name is cats claw. I had a hard time finding the bark from peru. So in case people need to know the real herb. And thank you Ted for your much needed help, at least it sent me out in the right direction and has helped my sick kitten a lot.
