A Half Dozen Natural Antibiotics Some Of Us At Creative Health Institute Have Found To Be Helpful

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.

Natural Antibiotics

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”.

Herbs That Affect Our Blood Pressure

Many of our guests, upon leaving Creative Health Institute, enhance their own healing journey by utilizing herbs for a period of time. This practice does not diminish the effect of the detox and rebuild programs that have helped our guests for more than 30 years. In many instances it helps  our guests strengthen their immune systems as they combine herbal  based therapy and apply what they have learned during their stay at the institute.   Some of our former guest choose to include herbal formulas, essential oils and aromatherapy to augment their health program. Taking herbs, and using essential oils and aromatherapy for medicinal purposes should only be done under the supervision of a Master Herbalist and/or a health specialist.

Some herbs which may lower blood pressure include:

Aconite/monkshood, arnica, baneberry, betel nut, bilberry, black cohosh, bryony, calendula, California poppy, coleus, curcumin, eucalyptol, eucalyptus oil, evening primrose oil, flaxseed, garlic, ginger, ginkgo, goldenseal, green hellebore, hawthorn, Indian tobacco, jaborandi, mistletoe, night blooming cereus, oleander, pasque flower, periwinkle, pleurisy root, shepherd’s purse, Texas milkweed, turmeric, and wild cherry.

Some herbs that may increase blood pressure include:

Arnica, bayberry, betel nut, blue cohosh, broom, cayenne, cola, coltsfoot, ephedra/Ma huang, ginger, licorice, Polypodium vulgare , and yerba mate.

Arnica is in both lists.This is because a particular herb whicht can lower blood pressure in its primary action, and may result in the with raising high blood pressure as a secondary reaction.

That is why you will observe sometimes contradictory rubrics for the same symptom. You can find Lyco worse with heat, and also better with heat, in most of the repertories.

Help For Your Heart

Keep in mind, once a person has been started on a drug therapy, it becomes more difficult to recommend an herb therapy that might also be of assistance,  largely because of fears that the herbs will interact with the drugs, disturbing the effectiveness of the drugs.  Further, most physician know little about herbs and are rightfully concerned about the herb ability to interact with the drugs they are administering.  If you are taking any prescribed medications, please check with you physician before incorporating these herbs into your lifestyle.

CAYENNE PEPPER

Cayenne pepper is a central circulatory stimulant. If you use cayenne on a regular basis you will improve the natural cleansing mechanism of your entire body, and this is particularly helpful in conditions of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and many other chronic illnesses. Cayenne nourishes the heart and helps arteries, veins and capillaries regain the elasticity of youth by feeding cell structure. It helps equalize circulation by regulating the flow of blood from the head to the feet and strengthens the pulse by increasing its power (not frequency) while lowering overall blood pressure.

GARLIC

Without a doubt, garlic (Allium sativa) provides the body with protection against cardiovascular sluggishness. Garlic is one of nature’s most studied and helpful herbs. Scientific trials reveal that it can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, raise high-density lipoprotein levels (HDL, the good cholesterol), reduce the formation of plaque in carotid arteries and provide protection against aging in the all-important aorta–the cardiac blood vessel responsible for maintaining blood flow and pressure with every heartbeat.

HAWTHORN

Hawthorn is a plant which kept Brechnev alive for ten years. The Soviets know a lot about herbal medicine. Hawthorn is a regulator of the rhythm of the heart; it increases the force of contraction so that the output of blood from the heart is improved, and it’s a restorative of the heart muscle. We can use this to protect the heart against hypertension in the case of high blood pressure.

Hawthorn also prevents the buildup of cholesterol in the liver by encouraging the breakdown of cholesterol into bile acids. When used for a long period of time (weeks or months), extracts of hawthorn dilate blood vessels, including vessels of the coronary system, giving better blood flow through the heart and throughout the body. Hawthorn also affects intracellular calcium levels in the heart muscle, resulting in improved cardiac function and lowered spastic cardiac conditions.
