The Creator’s Natural Antibiotics


Our Creator has given us many natural wonders to treat the common ailments that this fallen world often bestows upon us. That is great, because chemical antibiotics made by Pharmakeia has many negative health effects, including a permanently damaged gastrointestinal system (thereby weakening immune system and contributing to digestive disorders) and MRSA.

So here is your quick guide to the world of natural antibiotics.  These natural solutions can help you avoid the side effects from conventional prescription antibiotics, as well as a trip to the doctor’s office! Because let’s face it–the more we visit the doctor’s office, the sicker we get (and our children get too)! In fact, many of my clients suffer from health problems like IBS/Crohns/Colitis as a result of prescription antibiotic use. Not to mention the increasing problems of antibiotic-resistant diseases like MRSA breaking out and killing more people than AIDS.

Here’s a few things that God has given us to use instead!

Vitamin C

Did you know that intravenous vitamin C was used to treat cancer? Of course, the big pharmaceutical companies couldn’t get rich off of THAT, so it was phased out quickly and the evidence was hidden.

Linus Pauling was one of the experts who discovered the amazing healing power of vitamin C (which we will remember is naturally-found in the foods God created, just not in large doses anymore) and won a Nobel Prize for his work in this area. In the 1930’s, experts discovered that high dosages of vitamin C inactivated polio and diptheria. ( http://www.doctoryourself.com/ckorea2008.html )

And aside from treatment for illnesses, orthomolecular experts even discovered that heart disease is really just a case of chronic scurvy–vitamin C deficiency!

Vitamin C in large doses is an incredible natural antibiotic used successfully in the treatment of colds, influenza, various infections, and even whooping cough. ( More info on that here: http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/2011/12/20/special-report-the-vitamin-c-treatment-of-whooping-cough-suzanne-humphries-md/ )

Of course, many people hesitate when they hear the amounts necessary for megadose therapy with vitamin C. Some doctors even report that too much vitamin C can cause kidney stones, but their information is based on flawed evidence and a misunderstanding of how kidney stones actually are caused. According to orthomolecular expert Dr. Andrew Saul:

Vitamin C does not cause kidney stones. Modern writers consistently pass by the fact that McCormick used vitamin C to prevent and cure kidney stones . . . in 1946. (McCormick WJ. Lithogenesis and hypovitaminosis. Medical Record, 1946. 159:7, July, p 410-413.)

Some of the things I recommend using high-doses of vitamin C for include:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Respiratory illness
  • asthma attacks
And many other things!

When we understand the dangers of even just a short course of antibiotics that leave the gut harboring resistant bacteria for years later and permanent damage to the gut, we can see that natural vitamin C isolated from foods God created is much safer than man-made antibiotic poisons.

Orthomolecular experts used vitamin C in both the form of sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid, both of which are available for very cheap online, in the vitamin section of large chain department stores, and in the natural foods section of grocery stores. After learning that some of these sources of vitamin C, while very effective, are made from GMO corn, I located a couple of vitamin C products that are not made from GMO corn:

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR–The Cure-All

Apple Cider Vinegar, that wonderful old-timers home remedy, cures more ailments than any other folk remedy — we’re convinced! From the extensive feedback we’ve received over the past 8 years, the reported cures from drinking Apple Cider Vinegar are numerous. They include cures for allergies (including pet, food and environmental), sinus infections, acne, high cholesterol, flu, chronic fatigue, candida, acid reflux, sore throats, contact dermatitis, arthritis, and gout. Apple Cider Vinegar also breaks down fat and is widely used to lose weight. It has also been reported that a daily dose of apple cider vinegar in water has high blood pressure under control in two weeks!

Be sure to use organic RAW apple cider vinegar! It provides vitamins A, B6, C and E, which the body needs to fight off infection and disease (see Resources). It also contains high levels of calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and potassium minerals. A deficiency of any of these minerals hinders a child’s healthy growth and development. Pectin, a dietary fiber, is another essential nutrient that can be obtained from apple cider vinegar.
 
For an adult, drink 1-2 tablespoons diluted in 4-6 ounces of water or juice (must be diluted or it can burn) 3 times a day. For children, prepare 1 tablespoon in 6 ounces of juice 3 times a day.

In addition to being used orally, apple cider vinegar can be used for vaginitis, urinary tract/bladder infections, and other female problems that would normally cause the use of antibiotics. Add 3 cups of pure apple cider vinegar to bath water and soak in the tub for twenty minutes. You can also carefully use a small medicine syringe filled with diluted apple cider vinegar to treat these problems as well. Be sure to press the syringe down very slowly when “injecting” the apple cider vinegar into the vaginal area! Do this four times daily. I have found it to work amazingly for healing vaginal infections in under two days!

A gargle formulated from a 40/60 solution of apple cider vinegar and water is a centuries-old folk remedy for oral thrush. For younger children, a cotton swab saturated in the solution is used to apply it to the tongue and inner cheeks.

 

GARLIC–THE SUPERFOOD ANTIBIOTIC

Garlic is the most potent natural antibiotic. Eating at least one clove of raw garlic each day can prevent a multitude of infections. It contains allicin which is similar to penicillin. As powerful antibiotics lose their punch against “superbugs” such as vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), scientists are searching for new antimicrobial agents from natural sources. Allicin, the major component of garlic, is one such agent, and it was recently shown to be potent against VRE and MRSA in two studies

Garlic juice or oil has been used in traditional folk medicine to relieve pain associated with ear infections. Garlic was often mixed with other herbal oils like mullein and used as ear drops to help to treat otitis media, according to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

One particular study wanted to determine if garlic ear drops were as effective as prescription ear drops and antibiotic treatment on ear infections. The study discovered that ear drops were associated with greater pain relief after three days of treatment, irrespective of antibiotic treatment.

A 2001 double-blind study published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine found that garlic drops helped to relieve pain from acute ear infection, according to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Reported in the journal Pediatrics in 2003, the second study had similar results in children.

You can either stop by your local natural health store (just stop there instead of the pharmacy!) and purchase garlic ear drops or make your own at home for a fraction of the cost!
 
Garlic Ear Oil Drops
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Simmer garlic in olive oil over very low heat (or use double-boiler if your pan/stove won’t go very low, otherwise you will end up instead with deep-fried garlic!) for about 5 minutes. Strain and pour into a small glass bottle. Use with a dropper from an old medicine bottle or from the pharmacy. Place 2-3 drops in the infected ear 3 times/day.  You may also put a small cotton ball slightly inside the ear for those little squirmers to give the garlic more time to heal.
 
To provide additional pain relief, you can add mullein leaf to the garlic/oil mixture in the pan. Additionally, you may want to put drops in each ear, not just the infected one, in case the other one may be progressing towards infection.

 

Breastmilk for Ear Infections First!

**As a side note, if you’re still breastfeeding and have a baby with an ear infection, natural health experts and many chiropractors also recommend putting a few drops of breastmilk into baby’s infected ear three times daily. While this may sound strange at first, it’s incredibly easy, on-hand, and we must remember the amazing power of mother’s milk! I found it to be substantially more effective than any other natural remedy.  It is also Dr. Mercola’s recommended treatment for ear aches and infections.  If you aren’t nursing, do you have a friend who is? Ask for an ounce!  )
 

For other illnesses, such as yeast infections and just to simply strengthen the immune system, you can consume raw crushed garlic or you can look for an odorless garlic supplement, such as that from Kyolic. If purchasing raw garlic from the grocery store, be sure it is not irradidated. The process of irradiation basically renders the garlic dead, along with all of its health properties, making it ineffective. It’s best to go with organic garlic from a local natural foods store or even better, from a local farmer or your own backyard garden!

 

Colloidal Silver

This natural product comes about as close as possible to a broad-spectrum prescription antibiotic like penicillin but without the risks. It has been used for thousands of years for a vast amount of illnesses and ailments. American pioneers found that putting pure silver coins or silverware in their water barrels would keep it free of dangerous bacteria. Just some of the things it works well for are ear infections, colds, urinary tract infections, warts, and so much more.

In the past several decades, research has shown colloidal silver can even eradicate antibiotic-resistant microbes like MRSA , the Avian Influenza (bird flu), and Human Corona virus (SARS).

Unfortunately, it has recently got some bad attention due to the media focusing on a few people whose skin has turned a bluish-grayish tint as a result of using homemade silver in large doses.

The fact is that these people are not an accurate representation of what can happen when using colloidal silver. Many people eat carrots; I even know one guy who turned orange temporarily as a result of consuming large amounts of carrot juice as part of his cancer regimen. Does that mean that everyone who eats carrots will turn orange? Similarly, colloidal silver in its proper form used as directed is a much, much safer alternative to prescription antibiotics without any side effects.

For more information on the different forms of silver available and which one is best to use with no concern of causing argyria (turning blue), check out Dr. Mercola’s article here: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/02/05/new-guidelines-released-for-safe-usage-of-colloidal-silver-supplements.aspx.

Many people wonder why this natural antibiotic, if it’s so effective, is not still used by mainstream medicine. There are two reasons: “The first reason is that true colloidal silver is a Pre-1938 drug (by over fifty years) and so the FDA has stated that it may continue to be marketed (grand fathered). The second reason is that the FDA has no jurisdiction over a pure mineral element.” http://www.quantumbalancing.com/news/cs_universal.htm

The link above has additional information on what colloidal silver is, what it’s history is, and how to use it. This link: has a colloidal silver dosage chart, as well as recommended uses: http://www.colloidalsilverhealth.co.uk/pharma.htm

 
 

Raw Honey

Raw honey is another GREAT natural antibiotic. Truly raw honey is the only kind that retains its healing benefits and is not often found in grocery stores (with the exception of stores like Whole Foods, Trader Joes, local health food stores, etc.). But remember–the label “organic” on honey does not mean that it is raw. It should specifically say “raw” on the label.

The best way to get it is by purchasing it from a local beekeeper. Check http://localharvest.org/ to find a local source near you or visit your farmer’s market.

“As an antiseptic, honey is also a drawing agent for poisons from bites or stings or infected wounds, and has outperformed antibiotics in treatments for stomach ulcerations, gangrene, surgical wound infections, surgical incisions and the protection of skin grafts, corneas, blood vessels and bones during storage and shipment.”

But the list doesn’t stop there. For burns, sore throats, osteoporosis, and more, the healing benefits of honey are numerous and proven. A list of raw honey’s health benefits can be seen here:

In addition to these wonderful natural medicines, remember the value of a healthy immune system.  Probiotics and vitamin D3, as well as a diet low in sugar and processed foods, is crucial for helping avoid illness and for keeping illnesses from becoming severe.

 
The Bible tells us about a tree of life and a river of life in heaven that will give us everything we need for good health and eternal life.  Our fallen world still retains many of the natural health-giving properties that a restored Earth will give us one day.  But we must remember to thank and adore the Creator of these things, worshiping the Creator, not the created.

    You’ve left out a few of my favorites… Raw Honey is amazing for topical use on any wound as well as internally for illnesses, the best honey to use is Manuka but if you can’t get that then Raw and local is the next best thing. My favorite for pretty near anything is Diatomaceous Earth, food grade D.E. can knock out any bacteria, virus or parasite in anywhere from 2 hours to 2 days depending on how advanced it’s become. I’ve taken it at the first signs of illness and been fine two hours after taking it. Another that I use for everything else that needs more “deep” healing is homeopathy, it’s amazing all the medicines that God has created for us and combined with dosing according to homeopathy you have medicines that have deep long lasting effects and can even heal past injuries. The best example I can give you is Arnica Montana, if taken during a stroke or brain bleed it can stop the bleeding, if taken after the fact when damage has been done it will reverse most of the damage even 30 years later! As amazing as Arnica is, honestly every homeopathic remedy (made primarily from God’s creations) has amazing and wonderful healing attributes of their own. My final favorite is iodine, everyone should have a bottle of iodine handy, to prevent lyme disease on needs only apply it to the site where the tick was. I’ve used it on a goat with severe frostbite on his foot and he had an AMAZING recovery, I share that story on my website in case you are interested. Iodine also cures keloid scars and deep tissue wounds/scars because iodine penetrates deep into the skin and heals from the inside out.

    I would love to share so much more about each of these but I think you’d rather enjoy learning about each of these marvelous God given antibiotics/remedies on your own : )
