The overuse of antibiotics has become a modern-day epidemic. These drugs have depleted our  natural immunity by killing the good bacteria in our guts and also  creating super-bugs that have become resistant to almost any form of prescribed  drug around. Instead of making yourself weaker, and depleting your  body’s natural ability to cure itself from any number of  ailments, try utilizing natural foods and herbs to ditch the Big Pharma meds for  good.

 

Here are 8+ foods which harness natural antibiotic  properties.

1. Astragalus – An adaptogen, meaning it is  an overall tonic for the body, astragalus has been used for thousands of years  in Chinese medicinal practices to boost the immune system and counteract  physical, mental, and emotional stress. Research has shown that it can be very effective at  treating colds, protecting the liver, and keeping viruses at bay.

Honey – Although honey has always  been used to fight off infection, scientists have just recently identified one secret ingredient in honey that  makes it a natural antibiotic because it kills unwanted  bacteria. It’s a protein called defensin-1 which bees add to  honey when they make it. It does what it sounds like too – makes your immune  system a full defense against disease.

5. Fermented Vegetables – Reseeding your gut with  good microbes, which can be found in just about all fermented  vegetables, can keep your immune system on full-tilt. If you haven’t  already heard, your gut health accounts for about 80% of your overall immunity to  disease, so putting the good bacteria back in is essential.

6. Cinnamon – Sometimes called a ‘lethal’ natural  antibiotic, cinnamon has been used medicinally for ages. Pure, real Ceylon  cinnamon can even stop E.Coli in its tracks, a stubborn bacteria that
