4 Natural Antibiotics

4 Natural Antibiotics

When it comes to antibacterial agents, natural medicine really shines.  While there are hundreds of natural antibiotics of varying degrees of strength, here are some of my faves:

Oregano Oil—The King of natural antibiotics, study after study proves the effectiveness of oregano oil.  Of course, like anything, product strength can vary drastically.  Some products are actually marjoram and not oregano at all. So, choose a reputable brand backed by research.  I like North American Herb and Spice Company’s blend called P-73, which includes wild, high potency oregano harvested in harsh conditions.  That might not sound like a big deal but harsh conditions usually spell stronger active ingredients in the plant, since the health-building phytochemicals frequently comprise the plant’s immune system.

Three volumes of research by Paul Belaiche found that oregano oil killed 96% of all pneumococcus bacteria, 92% of all neisseria, proteus, and staphylococcus bacteria.  Some strains of neisseria are responsible for diseases like gonorrhea or meningitis.  Proteus is a type of intestinal infection, and staphylococcus is the culprit in some types of food poisoning.  Oregano oil eliminated 83% of streptococcus and 78% of enterococcus, which are linked with strep throat, scarlet fever, rheumatic fever, toxic shock syndrome, cystitis, wound infections, and anorexia.

Interesting how some of the most useful herbs,like dandelion, are the most persistent. I planted one tiny clump of oregano in my herb bed 7 years ago, and every spring I have to clear out a ton of it.

Oregano oil can be ingested (preferably softgels because it is a "hot" oil and will burn a bit) after a meal which contains some fat/oil for best absorbtion and least digestive issues.
Alternatively, it can be rubbed into the soles of your feet to be absorbed into your blood stream.

I agree with Lisbette. The garlic and green tea are ingested, but what does one do with the oregano oil and the Olive leaf extract? Is it applied topically or ingested? Thanks for the start of information.
