Treat Infection with Natural Antibiotics

When antibiotics were first invented, they were used to treat incurable diseases in a sparing, tightly-controlled manner. Only patients who were near death would be treated by these powerful synthetics.

These days, many conventional physicians hand out antibiotics for every cold and sniffle going around. This has lead to the development of a variety of serious illnesses. Illnesses including chronic candida, digestive disorders, and immune system malfunction.

Why Prescription Antibiotics Aren’t Working Anymore

Prescription antibiotics aren’t just causing chronic disease. They’re also causing the development of antibiotic-resistant disease. If you’ve never heard of nightmare bacteria, click here to learn more. Nightmare bacteria has become so resistant to multi-strain antibiotics, it could theoretically lead to a catastrophic outbreak of disease in a matter of months. This is a real threat that scientists and doctors alike are keeping a close watch on.

Prescriptions aren’t the only source of antibiotics. Conventionally-produced milk, meat, poultry, and fish are also loaded with antibiotics. This means you may be consuming small doses of them with each meal unless you’re eating organic.

According to an article published in the Scientific American (you can read that here), even vegetables may be tainted with antibiotics. This is because the manure taken from the cows injected with antibiotics is used to fertilize the soil that feeds your produce.

Why You Should Treat Infection with Natural Antibiotics

When you use prescription antibiotics for every infection you come down with, your immune system never has a chance to build itself up. It becomes dependent on the antibiotic and will have extreme difficulty fighting off any infection without them.

Natural antibiotics, on the other hand, work with your body to boost your immune system and eradicate disease. Natural antibiotics also treat your body without the side effects commonly associated with prescriptions. Side effects such as allergic reaction, chronic yeast infections, and digestive distress.

The Best Natural Antibiotics for Chronic Infection

Here are 5 natural antibiotics you can use to treat infection:

  • Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract is hands down the most powerful natural antibiotic on the market. It kills virtually every germ, bacteria, and fungus it comes in contact with. Olive leaf extract contains an antimicrobial agent called oleuropein, which strengthens your immune system and prevents the spread of disease.

The major difference between olive leaf extract and conventional antibiotics is bacteria cannot mutate a defense against it! This is the kind of stuff you want to have around during a superbug outbreak.

  • Oregano Oil

Oftentimes, a weak immune system is a sign of poor digestion. Not only does oil of oregano act as a natural antibiotic, it acts as a digestive aid and anti-inflammatory as well. It has been shown to be an acceptable alternative to prescription antibiotics because it has a comparable effect without the dependency and side effects. Oregano oil can be taken in liquid form or capsules. When using the liquid form, place a few drops in water and drink through a straw. Capsules should be taken with plenty of water.

  • Garlic

Garlic is a powerful antifungal and antibacterial that has been used to treat chronic infection for thousands of years. The infection-killing ingredient in garlic is called allicin. For best results, chop up raw organic garlic and leave it exposed to the air for 10 minutes. This releases its powerful antiviral properties. Mix the chopped garlic in some honey and swallow. It’s powerful cold and flu relief!

  • Clove Oil

Clove oil boasts the strongest levels of antioxidants on the planet. Its oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) rating is a staggering 10,787 per 1 gram. This means it is one of the most powerful free radical destroyers on the planet. A strong dose of antioxidants heals your body, boosts your immune system, and treats disease. You can use cloves internally to fight infection or as a mouth rinse for oral infection. Put a few drops of clove oil into a tepid glass of warm water and swish twice daily. Cloves have strong anti-inflammatory properties and can fight the infection that causes tooth decay.
