You get sick and you go to the doctor. It’s always the same story: you find yourself in the pharmacy with a prescription for antibiotics. However, we don’t always realise that Mother Nature offers us plenty of natural antibiotics for fighting infection, fever and flu. And these ones don’t have harmful side effects!
In fact, contrary to pharmaceutical antibiotics, natural antibiotics do not harm the natural microflora in our bodies, they do not kill the good bacteria that protect us from gastro-intestinal problems and food allergies, and they do not lower our immune system defenses. What’s more, there is no risk of the infections becoming more resistant to medical treatment, which could force you to take ever stronger medication. Choosing natural antibiotics helps us to benefit from the antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties in these foodstuffs and to better protect ourselves from bad bacteria. Here are 9 examples that you are sure to find in your kitchen at home.
