10 of the strongest known natural antibiotics & anti-fungals

Nature, and even our kitchens, is a powerful pharmacy if used wisely.

Ever since the introduction of antibiotics in the mid 19th century, they have saved many lives by either killing or inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Sadly, due to over-prescription, over the years the microorganisms have become resistant to antibiotics and their effects.

Choosing a natural antibiotic

Antibiotics are capable of fighting off bacteria, fungi, and certain parasites, but not viruses. Therefore, don’t try to use natural antibiotics to combat viruses, as they simply won`t do the trick. Natural antibiotics are divided into antibacterials and antifungals, both of which have specific functions.

It is recommended to consult a doctor about the kind of natural antibiotic to use for your condition. Never disregard professional medical advice due to information provided on the internet.

Some of the most powerful natural antibacterials include:

  • Garlic extract
  • Onion extract
  • Ginger extract
