Antibiotics have been misused so much during the last 20 years for the sake of convenience and when unsure if a sickness is serious or not. Children more than anyone else are prescribed antibiotics, often at the request of parents, for various medical conditions like ear infections, upset stomach, etc. As a result of overuse, antibiotics are no longer effective enough when serious bacterial infections need to be eradicated. In the last 5 years antibiotics are given mostly for a serious infection.
Thankfully there are natural antibiotics that are extremely effective for fighting infections and some are also antiviral and antiparasitic. I am listing below some of these that have proven to be extremely effective for both children and adults. I am also suggesting products that have good reviews and worth reading for more information from first-hand users. Be advised, these are considered as ‘folk medicine’ despite many successful research findings and testimonials.
1. Oil of Oregano: This has to be the first one to mention as I have a very personal success story of a chronic, painful and disabling food poisoning episode that lasted over 19 years. None of the antibiotics I was given to fight h.pylori (helicobacter pylori) or any other bacteria that could have caused my condition as well, were successful until I used Oil of Oregano for 2 weeks and finally I was rid of this invasive bug that lodges in the lining of the intestinal tract [or the stomach for some] and remains there until something powerful enough comes along to destroy it. Studies have shown that Oil of Oregano is powerful enough to destroy bacteria in sewage! Oil of Oregano is taken for food poisoning and destroying intestinal parasites, flu and cold virus, canker sores, sinus infections, UTIs, skin disorders like psoriasis and dandruff, etc. It is also a powerful insecticide.

2. Grapefruit Seed Extract: This is made of the pulp and seed of the grapefruit. It is used to destroy fungal and staph infections, E.coli, salmonella, parasites, herpes, candida, etc. It is extremely bitter (take with some juice) and will make you shudder but it is a safe and effective antibiotic that I have used many times with great success especially after eating contaminated food at a restaurant.
3. Black Walnut Hull: (Fresh juice of unripe walnut hulls) Contains Juglone and Iodine which are toxic and able to destroy harmful bacteria like ringworm, athlete’s foot, etc. “It is also important to understand that many parasites do not confine themselves to our intestinal tracts. There are at least 1000 species of parasitic organisms that can live in humans, including Giardia, flatworms, hookworms, ringworms, nematodes, and a whole host of funguses. Incidentally, medical labs only check for about 50-60 of them. Some encamp in the liver, and others, such as Cryptococcus gatti, invade the lungs, nervous system, soft tissue, lymph nodes, and joints. Anti-parasitic and anti-fungal herbs such as black walnut (not to mention heavy doses of garlic) can help drive all of them out of the body.” [http://jonbarron.org/]
4. Wormwood: (Artemisia vulgaris) – Treating Crohn’s Disease, malaria, hepatitis, cancer, inflammation and infections by fungi, bacteria and viruses. It is the main ingredient of the famous French drink called Absinthe. Do not use Wormwood without direction of a medical practitioner and do not use for more than 2 days in a row unless advised otherwise.
5. Neem Oil and Leaves: From India - Neem oil is extremely efficient in treating skin and scalp disorders and infections without injuring the body in any way. Even though the smell is odoriferous the benefits far outweigh the inconvenience of this and it is easily masked by the addition of a fragrant essential oil like Rose or Jasmine oil. Used on the skin to treat eczema and as an anti-aging and deep moisturizing treatment the juice on the other hand treats ulcers and infections internally with the antioxidants able to neutralize free radicals that cause cancer and other chronic illnesses.
6. Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide: Please note that it has to be ‘Food Grade’ and it can be purchased at a health food store or online. The regular pharmacy grade hydrogen peroxide we all used for years contains toxic preservatives, stabilizers and heavy metals. There are so many testimonials of reversing serious medical conditions as well as less serious but upsetting and discomforting disorders that lower our immune systems like cold sores, sinus infections, fungal infections, warts, rashes, intestinal parasites, etc.

7. Bentonite Clay (Montmorillonite): I use this once a week in case I ingested any bacteria from eating raw salads and fresh fruit. My 19+ years of coping with chronic spastic colitis from h.pylori infection is the reason I am so super cautious. Also, there is a toxin in crops called aflatoxin and it is unavoidable sometimes to consume as it is in the freshest produce even organically grown food. A great detoxifier but also excellent for use topically as an anti-acne mask to draw out impurities and oil from underneath the surface. Since it is so drying a good moisturizer afterwards is highly recommended. I use a few drops of Pure Argan Oil or Ozonated Olive Oil and a daytime moisturizer with a SPF-35 for sun protection and to discourage age spots and hyperpigmentation – which is Melasma in my case.
As you can see you have many choices when it comes to using a natural antibiotic or antiviral. There are still more to share but for now we are going to concentrate on these ones as they have given me great support during my food poisoning infection phase that lasted 19 years!
Please do see a doctor before any treatment to make sure you are treating the correct condition. Also, follow your doctor's recommendations first to recover from a severe infection.
That's all for now, until next time...
