Conventional Antibiotics Versus Natural

Antibiotics are one of the most commonly prescribed medicines in the world right now so, it’s no surprise there is lots of talk in the media about how our bodies are no longer responding to some antibiotics. Overuse of conventional antibiotics has caused certain types of infections to ‘adjust their attack strategies’ so that they are unaffected by the treatments being prescribed. This is where utilising natural medicine can help.


Garlic is one of the oldest known natural antibiotics. It has been used for centuries to treat infections and kill harmful bacteria in the body as it’s thought to have antimicrobial properties. Garlic can be incorporated into your diet as a preventative medicine and used therapeutically to treat viruses, bacterial infections and fungal infections.


Echinacea is used all over the world to treat everything from the common cold to yeast infections and pain relief. Echinacea naturally supports the immune system as it’s packed full of antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, keeping viruses and infections at bay.

Manuka Honey

Manuka honey is one of nature’s most tasty natural medicines! It can be used externally to treat a range of skin conditions such as acne, eczema burns and wounds- even staph infections; and internally to treat stomach and digestive conditions.

Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver has been used as a natural antibiotic since around the 1900’s. Unlike prescribed antibiotics, colloidal silver doesn’t build up an immunity to the bacteria it kills, making it perfect for treating all types of infections. Just some of its uses include eye infections, ringworm, wound care, inflammatory conditions, cold and flu and pneumonia.
