What would be a good homemade medicine that can be used as an antibiotic?
I do not know if you can actually make an antibiotic at home. Buy you can buy colloidal silver, which is none prescription and can be bought at health food stores. I have used it and it works pretty well.
garlic is a natural antibiotic also. The chicken soup answer is also correct - something ab out what's in chicken soup does help - is it a mother's love?
I agree with cybersupe and jennshealthstore - it also depends on what the antibiotic is for. You cannot manufacture let's say an antibiotic to treat bronchitis. You can 'treat' bronchitis with other methods without the antibiotics - there are 2 ways of thinking - you will get better without the antibiotics anyway or you will not.
The chicken soup theory is a great treatment for anything that ails you!
However, if you have an honest-to-goodness infection and if you also have complications such as diabetes let's say - there is NOTHING that I know of that can take the place of an antibiotic prescribed by a physician.
It is also important to research your antibiotics (or any medicines) and find out which foods and/or medicines interact with it because sometimes the interaction will render the antibiotic (or another medicine) less effective.
I applaud you! One more SMART person trying to avoid antibiotics. My husband and I have cured medically proven strept throat with apple cider vinegar. We have had the throat cultures to prove we had it, and cured it. The vinegar was taken IN PLACE of the prescribed antibiotics. We never told the Dr what we were doing.
Take 1 tbl of apple cider vinegar, (not white vinegar) 3 times a day for 10 days. (Just like you would an antibiotic). For children try 1 tsp.
I did have one instance where the vinegar would not cure me. That time I used echinacea tincture. The bottle said one dropperful gargled and swallowed every hour for 24 hrs. I did it while I was awake. It worked!
Good luck! You are onto better health just for the decision to avoid the 'drugs'!!!

I would like to hear your opinion on antibiotics and our practice with it. Many believe that antibiotics are overly prescribed and that we are seeing many resistance strains.

There are a number of organized groups with vehement leadership who want to subdue those who want to boost their immune systems with natural methods. They use circular reasoning and illogic. They do not connect the mind/body system. My recent hub warns against these ultra negative persons. See...
