    Natural antibiotics exist in your home and you may not even be aware of this fact. So here I want to expose you to what some of these products are that you may have been overlooking and can,from now on,benefit from using them as medicine. Your refrigerator or pantry can be harboring these excellent products with healing properties and now you will know how to benefit additionally from these common products.

    One thing to note whenever you are taking antibiotics of any sort is that it is also important for you to take a probiotic to help to keep your intestinal or digestive system in proper balance. There is a need for balance of good and bad bacteria in your system. The antibiotics destroy all the bacteria in your system and the probiotics make the environment favorable for the good bacteria to grow.

    1. Manuka Honey – I saw Dr. Oz recently highlight this product as one of the effective natural antibiotics. It is excellent as a topical antibiotic for cuts, bruises or scrapes to prevent them from becoming infected.It has even proven to be effective against such serious conditions as flesh-eating bacteria and MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus – often picked up in hopsitals).

    2. Garlic – garlic has long been known as one of the natural antibiotics. It is good for us in so many ways. Garlic is not only a natural antibiotic but can also help to protect your immune system as well as make it stronger in its defense against anything that tries to harm it like free radicals, often associated with cancer. Garlic has been used internationally for many thousands of years for medical reasons. The active ingredient in garlic that is so powerful is known as Allicin. You can eat raw garlic or take garlic in supplement form where you will not have the odor to contend with.

    3. Tea Tree Oil – be sure to use 100% Tea Tree Oil. This is a very strongnatural antibiotic and often will need to be diluted in order to put it to use. It is a very effective natura remedy and a good one to have in your cupboard. Be sure to keep it away from your eyes – it’s very strong stuff. It can also irritate the genitals, so be careful where you choose to use it.

    4. Colloidal Silver – back in the olden days, apparently before the days of refrigeration, farmers would drop a silver penny into the milk their cows produced, in order to preserve its quality. Our food supply nowadays has virtually none of this in it naturally anymore so we are lacking in the silver that used to come in our food and help protect us. Colloidal silver has both antibacterial and germicidal properties that help in killing bacteria, viruses and fungal infections. It can be used topically and internally to treat infections, wounds and even MRSA mentioned above. This is a tasteless liquid so easy for everyone to handle.

    5. Goldenseal – I also saw Dr. Oz highlighting this recently as one of the most effective natural antibiotics that you can use for a sore throat or strep throat. You gargle with it then spit it out.It’s not the best tasting so be aware of this. I have also seen it being used on a newborn’s umbilical cord to prevent infection. It can also be an effective eyewash for pink eye or if you have a stye.

    6. Andrographis – also mentioned on Dr. OZ. This is one of the natural antibiotics that is effective for upper respiratory infections. It is recommended that you make it as a tea and take it 3-4 times every day. It has a very strong taste.

    7. Ginger – Ginger is one of my best defenses against colds, flu, any upper respiratory infections and even gastrointestinal problems. It is a wonderful herb with many benefits for us humans. Typically I will make a ginger tea and sweeten it with honey. Use it as you like it.

    So there you have 7 of the best natural antibiotics you can use for many situations you may encounter. If you do not have any of these items in your pantry right now then I would highly suggest that you get some so that you are prepared for anything you might face that requires antibiotics.
