In the day and age of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, the masses have overused these prescriptions to the point where they no longer are effective.
Doctors and patients are looking elsewhere for ideas on how to heal themselves.
Nature is the root of all medicine. It holds several natural non-prescription antibiotics that can be very effective when used properly.
Directions: The most common mistake made with doctor prescribed antibiotics is that as you start to feel better, you forget or stop taking the medication as prescribed.
What happens when you do this?
An infection is the equivalent of a microscopic war being held within your body. The antibiotic defense starts to win but rather than finish the fight, they lay back and celebrate the victory prematurely. This gives way for the invading bacteria to make a comeback and now that you have made them mad, often with more of a vengeance than they originally started out and you become sick again.
This is why it is directed that you are to finish the full course of antibiotics no matter if you are feeling completely back to health or not.
Natural Directions: When taking the holistic/natural approach it should be treated in the same manner. Whatever herbs, vitamins, plants you choose to use please do so as if they were prescribed for a full two-week course. Even if you start to feel better – keep taking them.
Garlic: Garlic can treat earaches, pneumonia, flu, plague even MRSA infections.
Echinacea: Strengthens the immune system and helps to treat a wide variety of infections including cold/flu and even open wounds, blood poisoning, and other bacteria related disease.
Colloidal Silver: Colloidal Silver is both antibacterial and germicidal and works on fungal infections as well as viruses. It is great for topical wounds and sores and even Staph and MRSA.
Raw Honey: Applied topically can kill a wide range of pathogens including MRSA and flesh-eating bacteria. It also can prevent and heal scarring and is great for bedsores.
Thyme: Thyme is an expectorant with antibacterial properties and is used to help protect the respiratory system. Great for bacterial infections of the skin.
Myrrh Oil: Natural antiseptic, antibiotic and antiviral. It can be taken internally and used externally for wounds. It is recommended for bacterial oral infections, bronchitis, and sore throats.
Oregano: Oregano is antibiotic, antifungal, antiparasitic, antiviral, antihistamine and a yeast-inhibiting medicine unlike anything ever concocted in a pharmaceutical laboratory. It is effective against even the most antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria.
Clove Oil: Clove oil is antimicrobial, disinfectant, great for digestive disorders, works as a disinfectant and oral antiseptic and numbing agent for toothaches.
So next time you get a cough, cold, flu or other physical ailments before rushing right to pharmaceutical antibiotics consider natural alternatives. When used properly they have been found to be effective.
The less we use pharmaceutical antibiotics the more likely they are to work for us if we are ever in a situation where we truly are in need of them.
