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.
