Nature’s Top 3 Secret Anti-Biotics
We’re all told that bugs are building up resistance to standard anti-biotics because of their over-use. Many of these medicines were only ever money spinners for giant pharmaceutical companies in the first place. The best healing is found in nature. It’s free, easy to find and with no harmful side effects.
Here are natures 3 top anti-biotics:
Raw garlic when crushed or chewed contains a compound called allicin – which has similar properties to penicillin.It is antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, and antioxidant (mopping up free radicals that have been proven to cause cancer).
Unlike chemical antibiotics that our body’s friendly bacteria garlic targets only bacteria and microorganisms. Garlic also encourages and increases the level of healthy bacteria.
Honey is one of the best natural antibiotics containing antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Scientists have now proved it can even fight superbugs because it has the ability to fight infection on multiple levels, making it more difficult for bacteria to develop resistance to it. Ancient societies put honey on wounds because it contains hydrogen peroxide to sterilise and polyphenols to prevent later infection by killing bacteria. Always use raw, organic honey.
- Raw apple cider vinegar
You know that at Zen Ten Spa we are great fans of Apple Cider Vinegar. A daily splash of ACV in a glass of water delivers antibiotic and antiseptic benefits, naturally alkalizing your system, and can aid you in everything from managing your weight to lowering cholesterol and your risk of cancer. ACV can also be applied to wounds to disinfect and sterilize.
The failure of pharmaceutical anti-biotics can be seen as a blessing if it helps turn us back towards the natural healing products that are so freely available with none of the industrial impacts or health side effects of conventional modern medicines.
