Post What are some natural antibiotics?

Without going to a doctor for a Rx for an antibiotic, what are some "natural" systemic antibiotic treatments? I know that garlic has antibiotic properties, and I think I read that colloidal silver does as well...but weren't there some systemic dysfunctions that occured with that?

Anyone else have any ideas on what someone can do, eat, or take in supplement form that will act as antibiotics?

Merrida, I think Goldenseal is a good herb for antibiotic. Badgirl

Hi Merrida,
I found this book listed on a search engine:
Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics: How You Can Supercharge Your Immune System and Fight Infection

I also found info on Inca Gold.
I have not read the book, and have not tried the Inca Gold. It is just something for you to research.

I have read that garlic is antibiotic in nature.I don't believe or disbelieve it, as I don't know.

The most recent information on goldenseal debunked its supposed efficacy.

I knew about garlic.

But I'd still like to find something else.

Thanks all for the info!

Basic nutrients for a healthy immune system include Zinc/Vit-A, Vit-C. In the event of illness, there are numerous medicinal plants and fungi to boost immune function. Also one can improve immune funtion w/ hormone DHEA, and raw bovine Thymus extract.

Try Allimax, contains the essential ingredient in garlic Allicin. But only the ingrediants you need no extra stuff. I take one a day and it seems to help. Do a web search for it. I first saw it on the 700 Club.

You can also use double the dose of Acidophilus caps like an antibiotic too. It works by flooding your system with good bacteria and thereby knocking out the harmful ones.

I did this for a stomach infection when my doc wanted to give me antibiotics. I would not accept them and tried the Acidophilus to see what would happen and within about three days my stomach had completely settled down.
