  • Common cold
  • Flu
  • Strep throat
  • UTIs and vaginal infections
  • Mouth infections
  • Skin infections
  • Cellulitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Strep throat
  • And many others
  1. Garlic :Not only does garlic help with the immune system, but it helps reduce cardiovascular risks, such as heart attack and stroke. It also helps to lower your blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and helps prevent various types of cancers, including colon cancer, prostate cancer, and stomach cancer.  It is also also highly beneficial in healing vaginal infections such as yeast infections.
  1. Manuka Honey: This type of honey comes from Australia and New Zealand from the nectar of manuka trees. Frequently used for holistic and natural health purposes, as opposed to consumption, it is known for killing various viruses, infections, and flesh-eating bacteria. You can usually find manuka honey in your natural health food store or a holistic or herbal store.
  1. Echinacea: You have most likely heard of Echinacea before, as it is a powerful and natural herb often used as a natural remedy. Echinacea comes in the form of supplements, dried herbs, and tea. It can help treat the cold and flu in a more natural way and help destroy MRSA and staph infections. In addition to being an antibiotic, Echinacea can also help with blood poisoning and open wounds, its original use. Taking Echinacea on a regular basis over time can also increase your immunity. You can take a supplement each day, add the dried herbs to your tea, or buy Echinacea tea bags. There are also liquid extracts of the herb.
  1. Turmeric: Quickly becoming the most popular holistic remedy for everything from stomach upset to helping with infections, turmeric is actually a spice, not an herb. It is in the same category as curry, frequently used in spicy Indian dishes. Aside from being used for cooking, it also has amazing health benefits. As an antibiotic, turmeric helps in a number of ways. First, it can help heal infections that lead to stomach ulcers. Turmeric can help with gastric distress that would otherwise be caused by different types of infections. It also helps with allergic rhinitis, hay fever, and other forms of allergies. If you want to use turmeric as a natural antibiotic, aim for extracts between 400 and 600 mg.
  1. Oregano: Like turmeric, oregano is traditionally used as a way to flavor food. When using as an antibiotic, you aren’t using the actual leaves of the herb, but an extract of the oregano oil. For a natural antibiotic, you need to choose the species of oregano carefully. Use oil from wild oregano, which can be found at most health or holistic shops. There are high-quality strains of oregano oil from this type of oregano. They may be anything from a golden yellow a darker yellow color. You can either use the oil in a neti pot for a sinus infection, or soak in a tub with some of the oil if you are using it for a skin or foot infection.Some types of infections that oregano oil is useful for are:
  • Infections from parasites
  • Sinus infections
  • Foot or nail fungus
  1. Colloidal Silver: This is one of the less common ones, but definitely something you should know about. Colloidal silver has been used for hundreds of years, first discovered in the early 1900s. A type of mineral, it is easy to find not only in natural health stores, but regular drug stores as well. As an antibiotic, colloidal silver helps with SARS, bird flu, MRSA, and many other types of infections. If you have a resistance to regular antibiotics, it can act as an alternative. You can get this from your local drug store and simply follow the directions on the bottle for proper dosage, or speak to your doctor about how much you should take as a natural antibiotic.It can also be used for other illnesses and infections, including:
  • Lyme disease
  • Pneumonia
  • Vaginal infections
  • Herpes and warts
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Cholera
  • Sinus infections
  • Tonsilitis
  1. Ginger: While it is often served on the side of sushi and other seafood, it can be used as a natural antibiotic. In terms of antibiotics, ginger helps the most with food-borne pathogens. This includes listeria, salmonella, and any other related conditions. Ginger is often used to ease stomach aches and abdominal discomfort, helping with indigestion, and increasing stomach acid production. If you have just eaten something that immediately makes you feel ill, having fresh ginger can help settle your stomach and help to prevent or reduce food poisoning. You can also make a tonic with ginger, garlic, and cayenne pepper: two more ingredients that are good for battling illnesses and infections naturally. You can use ginger in a variety of different ways, but the best include making ginger tea or using the actual ginger root.
  1. Apple Cider Vinegar: As a natural antibiotic, apple cider vinegar helps by providing probiotics, enzymes, acetic acid, and potassium. These all help with fighting off bad bacteria in your body, while also encouraging the growth of good bacteria. It helps get rid of the bad bacteria that would have otherwise caused infections or various other illnesses. You can get apple cider vinegar in a bottle just about everywhere, including the grocery store and drug store. You can drink it straight or dilute it by adding it to water or making a tonic with other ingredients.
  1. Coconut Oil: Coconut oil has been used for many different natural health remedies, from helping with hair health, to whitening teeth. It also happens to have both antioxidants and anti-microbial properties, making it an excellent natural antibiotic.The great thing about coconut oil is that it is easy to find anywhere, and super easy to use. You can rub it on your skin or hair, apply it topically to wounds and burns, swish it around in your mouth for oral infections, and of course, add it to different foods and beverages. If you want to use it on a daily basis, here are some ideas:
  • Add coconut oil to your morning coffee
  • Start making muffins with a little coconut oil
  • Use it on your skin if you get chronic skin infections
  • Try coconut oil pulling to help with oral infections
  1. Elderberry: Elderberry is a plant, but considered an herbal remedy by many sources. The berry from the elderberry tree can be dehydrated and added to teas, used in a tea directly, or can be mixed with other herbs to help fight colds and flu symptoms. In addition to the normal assistance the elderberry gives to help reduce sore throats and cold symptoms, it also has heavy anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce inflammation throughout the body. This can help reduce aches and pains in your system as well, which leads to better sleep and fatigue relief.
