Disease prevention can be easy. Here's a little self-treat health tip:
Consuming certain foods have antibiotic properties. Not only are they good for us as a measure of prevention, but they're tasty, too! And Dr Mercola agrees:
Garlic – A natural antibiotic used since ancient times, garlic has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties which help your body fight viruses, bacteria and protozoa.
Onions – Onions and garlic are both allium plants, which produce antibiotic effects.
Coconut oil – Contains lauric acid, which helps kill microbes before they can enter your body, and caprylic acid, which helps kill fungus and yeast.
Honey – Raw honey is a good topical treatment for wounds. It has been found to be effective in fighting certain antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and against a variety of fungi and bacteria, in general.
Vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables – Vitamin C in pineapple, kiwi, strawberries, mangoes and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, etc) helps stave off or eliminate certain bacterial infections, boost the immune system and heal wounds.
Herbs – A variety of herbs, including basil, bay leaves, cloves, eucalyptus, ginger, goldenseal, oregano, etc, have exhibited traits and qualities that mimic antibiotic actions in the body.
