All too often we are prescribed antibiotics on a visit to the doctor. Truth be said, there is a place for them in dire circumstances. However more and more evidence is showing that not only are certain ‘bugs’ becoming resistant to them, but they also wreak havoc on the immune system and gut flora, causing cystitis, leaky gut syndrome and a whole host of other problems.
Did you know that 80% of our immune system resides in the gut?
Many conditions where antibiotics are prescribed can be addressed naturally. Here is a list of must-have’s for your natural medicine cabinet, that will not only boost your immune system, but clear infections, parasites, viruses and bacteria safely.
- RAW GARLIC. Garlic has been prized for 5000 years and is known to reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure and fight infection and all fungal problems. Its action causes heating in the body, the blood vessels to dilate and stimulates the circulation. It is pungent and sulphurous, (which gives it strong odour) and is released through the skin and the lungs which is why it is good for lung conditions such as bronchitis and chest infections. Also good for expelling worms.
- TEA TREE essential oil - is extracted from an Australian native tree. Very volatile, yet extremely effective tea tree essential oil can be used to treat infections, wounds, abscesses cold sores and more. Can be used diluted in almond oil externally and rubbed into effected area, or find it in herbal tinctures and remedies. Some of our tinctures contain Tea tree.
- COLLOIDAL/ NANO SILVER - is pure silver particles suspended in water. Since the 1900’s Colloidal Silver has been researched and prescribed for a vast number of different conditions. It is known to kill around 650 pathogens, fight viruses, is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and assists the immune system. From the late 1930’s silver lost popularity after the patent of commercial penicillin by pharmaceutical companies, studies on silver diminished radically. However in more recent years silver has grown in popularity. In hospitals, silver is still used in burns units to help new skin regrowth but also in preventing infection and bacteria common in severe wounds. Nowadays, an even more effective and refined type of Colloidal Silver, known as Nano Silver is available. Uses for silver include: Candida, cystitis, leaky gut syndrome, conjunctivitis, colds and flu, psoriasis, eczema, water purification, gum problems, sore throats, digestive issues, burns, lyme, herpes, first aid and more.
