5 NATURAL ANTIBIOTICS MOTHER NATURE PROVIDES FOR US 🌱

It used to be so habitual for me to go straight to the doctor to get a prescription when I would turn ill or have some type of infection 🤦🏼‍♀️ I mean I was a registered nurse I was conditioned to think this was the only way. I was never educated on how food is medicine until I went out of my way to learn about it & I think a lot of people still have no idea that antibiotics often prescribed can potentially wind up doing more harm than good in our bodies 💊🚫

The truth is, this beautiful planet has given us plenty of herbs, plants, fruit, vegetables and other gorgeous substances that are naturally occurring healers. They help to prevent & get rid of infection & infection without the awful side effects from prescription medication.

Antibiotics work against the body 🙅🏽‍♀️, destroying bad bacteria while also destroying good bacteria and weakening the immune system. Foods from nature work with the body, helping it to fight infection and heal, while strengthening the immune system at the same time.

The coolest thing Is that when the immune system successfully deals with an infection, it becomes stronger and better, and able to confront similar threats in the future because our immune system “develops in combat”. If all we do is dump antibiotics into our bodies at the first sign of infection, we don’t give the immune system a chance to grow strong like it’s designed to. 

WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF ANTIBIOTICS?

Don’t get me wrong I think modern medicine is a wonderful privilege and we’re so blessed to have access to it - but for trauma or severe chronic illness. Not for acute circumstances which could be avoided easily with lifestyle and dietary habits. Side effects could include allergic reactions, antibiotic resistance, candida overgrowth, diarrhoea, destruction of good bacteria, intestinal inflammation, increased risk for diabetes, and gastrointestinal, kidney and blood abnormalities. The changes in gut micro biome leads to increased susceptibility to infections, compromised immune, and deregulated metabolism. While antibiotics have their place in medicine, natural therapies are definitely safer and can actually be more effective.

5 NATURAL AND STRONG ANTIBIOTICS

💧OREGANO OIL

Oregano oil contains two main high phenols, thymol and carvacrol, which are natural photochemical compounds that provide antioxidant and antibacterial effects.

This oil helps boost the immune system and fight against certain bacteria such as salmonella, E. Coli,  and candida. It also assists in preventing and treating respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, parasites and staphylococcus. Take oregano oil internally by placing drops in a capsule ** FOLLOW BOTTLE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND DO NOT INGEST IF BOTTLE SAYS SO** Find one that’s safe for internal use.  For sinus infections you can put a few drops of oregano oil in a pot of steaming water and inhale.


🍄MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS

Mushrooms are considered one of the richest sources of natural antibiotics.
The top five medicinal mushrooms include: Reishi, Mitake, Agarikon, Coliolus & Shitake. 
Cook them or look for raw mushroom powder and make a tea. Avoid straining to reduce loss of nutrients.


✨ GARLIC

Garlic possesses potent antibiotic, antiviral, anti-fungal, and antimicrobial properties and are able to help protect against nasty bacteria’s. Its also very high in natural antioxidants that destroy free radicals and support a strong immune system. Take 1 clove per day of raw garlic. Squash it, chop it or mince it up (this releases the allicin enzyme) and swallow with a drink of choice.


🌼 TURMERIC

Turmeric is highly anti-inflammatory and also possesses anti-microbial and anti-viral and anti-parasitic properties which makes it a great natural herbal alternative to fight off infections. Add a piece of fresh turmeric to your fresh juices or smoothies, or grate it into salads. 
 

🍯RAW MANUKA HONEY

The use of honey as a medicine has been traditionally used throughout the history because of its amazing antibiotic, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. To experience the most benefit, you should take a dose of about 1-2 tablespoons of Manuka honey a day. You can take it straight or add it to your favourite herbal tea, spread it on sprouted grain toast, or drizzle it over your oatmeal. 

I share this information to encourage people who want to live naturally to reach out & ask questions. Research more - there is so much information out there when you go looking for it.
