What are Natural Antibiotics?
In ancient times,
when people were afflicted with various types of
ailments and diseases, they commonly blamed evil
spirits. The belief was that an evil spirit had
invaded the personís body and that caused the
disease. You had to placate the evil spirits to get
them to leave and then the disease would be cured.
maintain the similar belief today, except that the evil
spirits have been identified Ė the disease
causing "evil spirits" are in the form of
micro-organisms (i.e. viruses, bacteria, or other
current accepted belief is that viruses and bacteria
are the basis or primary cause of disease. This is
labeled the "germ theory".
This germ theory
is now the basis of most forms of modern medicine and
dentistry. The belief is that pathogenic germs exist
outside the body and that they can
invade the body and cause disease.
Bacteria and viruses
do exist, but
evidence shows that bacteria grow due to a diseased
state of the body, a body with deficiencies, a body
that has been injured in some way. The body's environment is such that bacteria can grow and thus,
you find the bacteria creating infection, viruses
causing illness. (For more information see Antoine
Be Champ's books. He is a contemporary of Louis
An example, the
"germ theory" would have you believe that
bacteria creates tooth decay, however, it is not
really the full story. If it was bacteria that caused tooth decay, we
could just make sure to thoroughly brush, floss, clean
and use anti-bacteria drugs so that no bacteria
entered the gums, and there would be no tooth decay.
However, there is tooth decay and the dentist will
tell you that itís due to bad hygiene no matter how
hard you try and visit every 6 months for a cleaning.
(I realized that it was not natural that to keep
healthy you had to have someone scrap your teeth every
The truth is
bacteria comes into the tooth at a later time, only when the
tooth is demineralized. Demineralizatin comes from dietary
deficiencies. Only after the tooth, the environment,
is damaged due to this, the bacteria can enter the
tooth and gums and create a problem. Healthy teeth
would not decay.
medicine can help the body regain health so that
bacteria and viruses donít have an environment to
grow in, but what happens when you already have an
infection and have to handle it as the first step.
between the Antibiotics?
antibiotic to successfully treat people with serious
infectious diseases was penicillin. Alexander Fleming,
a British scientist, noticed in 1928 that mold (that
had accidentally fallen into a petri dish) had
prevented the growth of bacteria in his lab. While he
was on holidays, a bit of mold had fallen into a
discarded culture plate containing bacteria, when he
found it, the mold formed a clear patch with no
Then years later
an Australian scientist, Howard Florey and his team
worked to transform penicillin from an interesting
observation into a life saver.
In 1922, the
antibiotic started to be used. (The discovery of

antibiotics kill off friendly bacteria which the body
needs for health. Also, many pathogens have grown to
be immune to major doses of antibiotics due to the
over-use associated with these chemicals. There are
even reports all the way back the 1940s that antibiotics
affected a woman's menstrual period as well as the more
known allergic reactions.
this case, by natural we mean not a chemical, and not a
fungus, and something that doesnít kill off the good bacteria that
your body needs.

with no synthetic substances. The main ingredients are
plant compounds and minerals found in nature.

Honey, particularly Manuka honey, is beneficial for fighting infections, both internally and topically.
