A LIST OF FOOD AND HERBS WITH ANTIBIOTIC PROPERTIES

This article is a list of foods that have antibacterial properties.

Now don’t get me wrong- I’m not some wishy-washy guy that believes everything should be all natural, and that we should all be sitting around a campfire wearing hemp clothing, singing Kum-By-Yah, opening our heart chakras and never bathing.

I believe in modern medicine.

That said, modern medicine may not always be available, especially in emergency situations. And it can help to have a strong immune system in general, to avoid getting sick to begin with.

“Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.” -Hippocrates

Antibiotics are probably the greatest human invention over the past few hundred years (the snuggie coming in a close second), but they are overused. This is leading to drug-resistant strains that will cause us lots of trouble in the future.

So let’s take a look at some foods with antibacterial properties, that boost your immune system and reduce your dependence on antibiotics.

A LIST OF FOOD WITH ANTIBIOTIC PROPERTIES:

Garlic

Garlic has been been used for its antibacterial properties since ancient times. It was used in both world wars to treat things like typhus and sepsis. It has been proven to reduce the risk of catching colds, along with reducing the risks of stroke, hypertension and cancer.

And it’s even known to ward off vampires.

Onions

Like garlic, onions are part of the Allium family, and they too have a host of health benefits. They help in treating cold and flu, along with reducing inflammation and increasing circulation.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is essential for the function and growth of the body, and has been proven to help with viral and bacterial infect

ions.
