    What are some natural 'antibiotics'?

    What are some natural remedies that have antibacterial properties similar to antibiotics? Have they been proven to work?

    In the herbal world, one would choose an antibiotic that is appropriate to the ailment.
    Garlic is one of the best herbal antibiotics. It can help fight off a cold or the flu, and can be used in many ways
    Goldenseal (Hydrastis) can be used, but only for short time frames. It can be used to wash cuts to help prevent infection.
    Oregon Grape (Berberis aquifolium) contains berberine which is antibacterial. It helps stop bacteria from adhering to the intestine walls. Very useful for urinary tract infections.
    Echinacea boosts the immune system, and will help the body to fight off infections. People with auto immune disorders should NOT take Echinacea.
    Calendula is used both internally and externally for it's antibacterial and antibiotic qualities. Used for gut and stomach issues internally, and topically for skin.
    Thyme, Oregano, Ginger and a couple others can also be used.

    Turmeric, neem, Holy basil, onions, garlic etc are great antibiotics that we use here everyday in the Asian countries.

    I have found that oil of oregano really works, but you have to use it as soon as the symptoms start. Some of the others are olive leaf extract, garlic and onion, all have been proven to fight bacteria as well as viral and fungus infections. The benefit of taking natural antibiotics is very little side effects, and they do not kill off the good bacteria in your intestines, the way antibiotics do. I have written an article on the benefits of natural medicines, and supplements.
