10 Natural Antibiotics That Our Ancestors Used Instead Of Pills

Many “super bacteria” have appeared in the recent years due to the excessive usage of antibiotics either as shots or as pills.

What has really happened?

Well, bacteria have become antibiotic resistant and evolve faster than scientists are able to find effective medicines against them. It is estimated that in the future bacteria will be at the top of the food chain.

The antibiotics that are nowadays sold in pharmacies have been developed in the 1940s. Before that, people used only natural medicines i.e. unprocessed foods and tried herbs which helped them in the fight against viral infections and common diseases. The global holistic medicine still makes use of many of these natural antibiotics.

Our forefathers used organic “antibiotics” which they picked up directly from Mother Nature (not over-the-counter) to fight infections.

These are some of those natural antibiotics:

  1. Honey

Honey is still considered to be one of the most effective natural antibiotics in the world, primarily due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.

Honey contains enzymes that release hydrogen peroxide. That process provides support to the organism in the fight against an infection and prevents its spreading. Honey cleans the blood from toxins and helps the liver function efficiently. It also has a positive effect on the digestive tract.

If you want to boost your immunity, mix honey with cinnamon to increase the number of white blood cells. Best choice is always the organic, raw (unprocessed) honey, because in the process of pasteurization it loses part of its antioxidant power.

  1. Garlic

This vegetable has incredible healing powers. Garlic is very effective in the fight against “winter infections” such as the flu because it kills the causal bacteria before they start to have negative effects on the body.

Garlic contains allicin which fights bacteria, parasites and other microorganisms. Garlic cannot harm your health in any possible way.

  1. Apple cider vinegar

ACV possesses powerful antibiotic and antiseptic properties and helps in the natural alkalization of the body which helps in decreasing cholesterol, and thus decreasing the risk of cancer.

Apple cider vinegar can also be used for disinfection and sterilization.

  1. Turmeric

Besides for its beautiful yellow-orange color and its extraordinary taste, turmeric is also known for its amazing benefits for our health.

This spice is great for killing bacteria. For optimal results, the best is to combine turmeric with honey and apply this mixture on infected places.

  1. Grapefruit seed extract

A recently published study found that grapefruit seed extract may kill up to 800 types of viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites.

Grapefruit seed extract contains many antioxidants, boosts the immune system, and alkalizes the organism in a natural way. It is also a good help for digestion and stimulation of the intestinal flora.

  1. Oregano and oregano oil

You have probably used oregano to spice up many fares, pasta and French fries especially, without even knowing how beneficial it is for your health.

Other than its antibacterial properties, oregano helps with digestion and promotion of weight loss.

Carvacrol, oil that is a part of oregano, is very helpful in the fight against infective bacteria. In addition, it is very efficient against digestive infections and is definitely more than just a spice!

  1. Cabbage

Cabbage contains sulfur compounds, which have a good part in the fight against cancer.

Many people are familiar with the fact that cabbage is rich in vitamin C. Just one cup of cabbage contains up to 75% of the daily recommended dose of vitamin C.

Due to its antibacterial properties, consuming cabbage juice sweetened with honey is a great way to improve your digestion, prevent diseases and maintain your ideal body weight.

  1. Coconut oil

The list of benefits of coconut oil is endless. Besides having antifungal and antimicrobial properties, it also contains some antioxidants that are rarely found in other fruits of the nature.

Use coconut oil to improve your immune system, maintain an ideal level of cholesterol and sugar in your blood and strengthen the activity of the brain. Coconut oil is safe for both internal and topical usage.

Add 1 tbsp. of coconut oil in your morning coffee and boost your energy and clear up your head for the day that follows.

  1. Colloidal silver

Colloidal silver is a natural antibiotic that has been in use for many years. Colloidal silver should be used from time to time because great amount of silver in your organism may be certainly toxic.

However, colloidal silver inactivates the enzymes necessary for multiplication of bacteria and viruses, which makes it a great antibiotic.

  1. Fermented foods

Fermented foods such as probiotic yogurts, kefir, lactobacillus cultures and pickles are great food for the intestinal flora as well.
