It has been my experience that prescription antibiotics kill good bacteria; contribute to yeast over growth and weaken my immune system. Many of us at Creative Health Institute find that natural antibiotics are a better choice, as they do not kill good bacteria, nor do they have the inherent side effects associated with prescription antibiotics. I have found natural antibiotics when combined with a raw living food diet provide my best protection from infections and when necessary the addition of more natural antibiotics can alleviate swelling and pain and eliminate the bad bacteria which usually accompany any infection.
There are hundreds of powerful natural antibiotics and I would love to provide them all in this article, but due to my time constraints I am going to give you a half dozen of my favorites in this article. I promise to write more about natural antibiotics over the next few months.
Please feel free to send me information and your personal testimonials on your favorites and I will post them on the Creative Health Institute blog. You can also add your favorite natural antibiotic and testimonials in the comments section. Please consult your health care provider before trying any natural antibiotic.
Wishing you the greatest health and long life.
Grape Seed Extract: A few drops of grapefruit seed extract, (GSE), in a glass of water is all that is needed to help stop a sore throat or put almost any infection on notice. I have personally used just a few drops directly on a case of athletes foot and experienced immediate relief and saw the fungus completely disappear after only two applications. I have many friends who swear by it when it comes to helping them control their Candida.
Dr. Louis Parish MD, an investigator for the US Department of Health and the FDA, believes that GSE, “Gives more symptomatic relief than any other treatment. Conventional antibiotics only kill bacteria. The grapefruit seed extract has been shown to inactivate viruses, yeasts, fungi, parasites and worms as well as bacteria.”
“Studies from a list of prestigious institutes have demonstrated grapefruit seed extract to be effective against over twenty disease-causing bacteria, more than thirty fungi, and a host of single cell parasites”.

Garlic: Raw garlic held under the tongue, placed on the infected area or taken as a juice is an effective antibiotic. I know of a friend who swears that garlic is the best natural antibiotic for a tooth ache or infected gums. Her remedy is as follows:
- Peel a raw piece of garlic
- Place the garlic on the infected tooth or gum area and bite down on it for 15 minutes, then spit it out.
- Peel a second piece of garlic and chew it but do not swallow and letting the pieces and juices stay on the infected area for about 15 minutes.
- Do this 3 times a day every day until the infection is gone. Usually within 72 hours.
Oil of Oregano: The antiviral, anti-fungal and antibacterial trifecta effect of this powerful natural antibiotic makes it one of my favorite all around natural antibiotics. Simply rub it on the infected area and you should see and feel amazing results within 72 hours.
Echinacea – Golden Seal: This combination of natural antibiotics is one of nature’s most powerful immune system boosters and I have found it to be one an excellent way to ward off colds and flu.
Colloidal Silver: This is a very powerful broad-spectrum natural antibiotic. Unfortunately there are many unscrupulous vendors who do not care about the quality of the product they sell to you. Please do your research before purchasing or using any type of Colloidal Silver.
Colloidal silver fights infection, subdues inflammation, and promotes healing. It is a clear golden liquid composed of 99.9 percent pure silver particles approximately 0.001 to 0.01 micron (1/1 to 1/100,000 millimeter) in diameter that are suspended in pure water. It can be taken by mouth, administered intravenously, or applied topically. Colloidal silver is available in health food stores. “True colloids will typically contain more than 50% particles (often 50 – 80%), while the balance (20% to 49%) will be silver ions. When referring to colloidal silver, the word colloid means silver particles “. This is an excellent website, which contains good research and information’ http://www.silver-colloids.com
“Prior to 1938, before antibiotics, colloidal silver was used by doctors as their main substance to fight bacteria in a more natural way than through the antibiotics they use today. Antibiotics can harm our kidneys and liver functions. Colloidal silver promotes healing”.
