Foods That Help Your Body Heal

By: Generosa Dingal/ LMT


Numerous diseases and ailments are caused by bacteria, and even though modern medicine has become highly advanced, their most common treatment includes antibiotics.

Antibiotics are prescription drugs that help treat infections caused by bacteria. Some of the more common infections treated with antibiotics include bronchitis, pneumonia, and urinary tract infections.

Antibiotics work by killing the bacteria causing the infection or by stopping the bacteria from growing and multiplying. Antibiotics only work to treat bacterial infections.

They don’t work for infections caused by viruses, which can include the common cold, runny nose, most coughs and bronchitis, most sore throats, and the flu. So if your doctor doesn’t prescribe an antibiotic for your cold, there’s a good reason for it- it won’t work!

There are many different groups, or classes of antibiotics. All of these classes have side effects, which typically affect men and women in the same way. However, certain side effects are more common in some antibiotics than in others.


The most common side-effects of antibiotics include:


  • Soft stools, diarrhea

  • Upset stomach

  • Fungal (yeast) infections like thrush

  • Rashes

Yet, their use can also lead to complications such as:


  • Vaginal yeast infection with white discharge and severe itching

  • Mouth sores or white patches in the mouth or on the tongue

  • Severe allergic reactions that cause difficulty breathing and facial swelling

  • Severe watery or bloody diarrhea or stomach cramps

Antibiotics can cause long term side effects, but they are infrequent.

Fortunately, there are highly effective natural antibiotics that can help you destroy bacteria and viruses in a safe way:



Garlic is one of the most potent natural antibiotics, that boost the immune system, and offer strong antiparasitic, antiviral and antifungal properties.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is especially effective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus, fungi and yeast.


Having powerful immune-stimulatory, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, spasmolytic, and analgesic properties, eucalyptus can be used in the case of common colds, the flu, and throat infections, as well as bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma.


This pleasant spice has stimulant, anti-fungal, and anti-emetic qualities, anti-diarrhea, anti-flatulent, insecticidal, and it is a rich source of cinnamaldehyde and eugenol, which fight E. coli and MRSA.

Olive Oil

Olive leaves are strong allies against viruses and bacteria and metabolize the blood sugar, lower LDL cholesterol and act as antioxidants.


Onions have phytochemical properties which kill germs, relieve pain, treat ear infections, high fever, breathing issues, and nausea.


Vitamin C boosts the immune system and destroys pathogens. Therefore, make sure you increase the intake of foods that are rich in it, like citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables, broccoli, berries, tomato peas, kiwi, bell peppers, papaya, etc.

Manuka Honey

Manuka Honey is an extremely powerful natural antibiotic, that will help you fight Helicobacter pylori, salmonella and Staphylococcus aureus.


“The mighty root” has powerful medicinal properties that fight even the strongest antibiotic-resistant superbugs.


Use goldenseal, as the presence of berberine, will naturally fortify the immune system, and treat colds, urinary tract infections, diarrhea, vaginitis, and eye infections.


Use the myrrh essential oil to treat fungal infections, colds, coughs, indigestion, asthma, spasms, leprosy, ulcers, lung congestion, cancer, and syphilis.

Grapefruit Seed Extract

The extract of grapefruit seeds is effective in the treatment of bacterial or viral infections.

Habañero and Horseradish

Habañero is great in the fight against salmonella, Yersinia, and Escherichia coli, while the horseradish is great in the treatment of colds, the flu, and lung congestion.


Its powerful medicinal properties help you against the flu, colds, urinary tract and respiratory infections, herpes, swine flu, tonsillitis, nose and throat infections, vaginal yeast infections, streptococcus infections, HPV, ear infections, warts, and typhoid.
