The introduction of antibiotics into our medical realm has no doubt saved lives, limbs, and organs. The advancement in medical research and the ability to cure has been boundless—until now.
The Superbug has gained a stronghold. It’s now imperative that we educate ourselves and others—and act prudently.
The Genius of Antibiotics—and Its Downfall
Before the creation of what we understand now as antibiotics, people died of infections. They could have begun with, let’s say, a paper cut or a bug bite. With the invasion of bacteria into the bloodstream, the infection became life-threatening. And, unfortunately, often became life-taking.
Hence, antibiotics have saved our lives. Until recently. Because of the misuse and overuse, we almost no longer have the ability to fight diseases. The “bad guys” have mutated and become stronger and somewhat impermeable.
This is why your doctor (if he/she is worthy and ethical) will not prescribe antibiotics until it is clear that it is necessary.
Understanding Your Illness
First, of utmost importance, is to understand if your illness is bacterial in nature or viral. If it’s bacterial, you can treat it with medical antibiotics or homeopathic ones.
If it’s viral, there’s really not a lot you can do but wait it out. You can certainly take action by hydrating and offering nutritional value and rest. But otherwise, a virus must take its course. Relief for symptoms may be effective (hopefully), but cure only counts on time.
Always check with your health practitioner before deciding to embark on a “natural” course for a cure.
There are several options for “attacking” an infection in a natural way. One such product would be colloidal silver. This product dates back a thousand years to when cholera was rampant. Some of those who were wealthy enough to afford silver spoons beat the epidemic. The silver “killed” the bacteria.
There are no known side effects to drops of colloidal silver, but keep in mind, you need to address probiotic consumption. Any drug (natural or man-made) will deplete you of the “good” bacteria. Colloidal silver is a suspension of pure silver in water. It’s used to augment the body’s immune system. Even so, work with it. Balance with probiotics.
Here’s Your Starring List
Natural antibiotics have been known to resist the worst of the worst. Here are some remedies that may assist. Again, don’t count on these if your primary physician counsels otherwise. But there’s no reason why you can’t use these in defense as a secondary tactic.
- Apple cider vinegar
- Ginger extract
- Habanero peppers
- Oil of oregano
- Horseradish root
- Raw honey
