Natural Antibiotics Straight from Heaven to Earth.



Chemical or natural?


Natural Antibiotics are exactly what the heading says, straight from heaven to planet earth especially for you.

According to folklore, our first major antibiotic, penicillin, was derived from mouldy bread.

And another part of folklore is that Louis Pasteur had also noted that bacteria died when exposed to garlic.






How do they Work?

We have special white blood cells whose job it is to attack harmful bacteria and help fight off infections.

Sometimes, however, our immune system does not cope and our bodies need some help when we are suffering from ailments such as sinus infections .

But we should'nt rush off and start taking this medication, because we are not giving our immune system chance to fight them off naturally.

Antibacterials work in one of two ways:

  • A bactericidal antibiotic like penicillin kills the bacteria.
  • A bacteriostatic antibiotic stops bacteria from multiplying.


What are the most common side-effects of antibiotics?

  • Diarrhea.

  • Nausea and feeling sick.

  • Fungal infections of the mouth, digestive tract and vagina also known as candida or thrush.

We all know the side effects that antibiotics can have on us, so why not take a look at the list of herbs that have antibacterial properties and see what they can do as a healthy and natural alternative straight from heaven to earth!!

Natural options should be a way of life, and not only for when we are in trouble.

And, as always, remember to get a firm diagnosis and approval from your health practitioner or herbal advisor before embarking on any self-medication journey.

Garlic and Onions!!!!

Garlic is one of nature's strongest, most complex broad-spectrum antibacterial agents.




Tests have shown that Garlic kills or cripples at least 72 infectious bacteria that spread easily and rapidly,  two examples been diarrhea and tuberculosis.

The smelly onion, too, is an exceptionally strong antibiotic.
