Conventional antibiotics are extremely overused. According to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) , a whopping 833 antibiotics are prescribed on average per every 1,000 people. These antibiotics are making us very sick. In fact, most health problems can be successfully treated with a few natural remedies such as honey and turmeric.
HONEY IS A POWERFUL ANTIBIOTIC
Did you know that honey fights infections on many levels and doesn’t cause resistant bacteria like conventional antibiotics? Honey is so powerful for destroying bacteria that it should be used first when fighting infections. Scientists found that honey is more powerful than all antibiotics available. Published in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, the study discovered that the honey was able to kill every bacteria or pathogen they tested it on, and concluded that it could be applied topically to humans to help fight infections like cuts and insect bites. They also noted it could be taken internally.
Our research is the first to clearly show that these honey-based products could in many cases replace antibiotic creams on wounds and equipment such as catheters. Using honey as an intermediate treatment could also prolong the life of antibiotics.”
TURMERIC IS A POWERFUL ANTIBIOTIC
The most important compounds in turmeric are called curcuminoids. As a polyphenol, curcumin possesses several healing properties. It’s a strong antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
Beware, a lot of turmeric on the market is fake. It’s very important to get pure turmeric for it’s therapeutic benefits. This is the one I use – here The quality matters for this purpose
