Natural Antibiotics - Straight from Heaven to Earth.
"Let food be your medicine and your medicine be your food. Each one of the substances in a person's diet, acts upon the body and changes it in some way, and upon these changes the whole life depends, whether in health, in sickness or convalescent."
Hippocrates 2 000 years ago.
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 moldy bread.
And another part of folklore is that Louis Pasteur had also noted that bacteria died when exposed to garlic.
How do Antibiotics 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.
