10 Antibiotic Herbs

Herbal antibiotics have long been used by healers to ward off colds and flu, clear infections and speed wound healing. 

Now, they are moving back into the mainstream as an alternative for synthetic antibiotics that have become resistant to bacteria.

    Hi Amina, The best way to integrate these herbs into your diet is through the foods you already eat. Garlic can be added to a healthy spaghetti squash dish. Ginger can be thrown into your juicer with your other fruits and veggies. Wait for our next recipe this coming Saturday that features how to make your own aloe vera water! Yes, aloe is digestible.

    Hi Debbie,

    The best use for eucalyptus is in the shower. The steam will release beneficial oils that will enhance your mood, improve respiratory health, aid in stress reduction, as well as act as an anti-inflammatory & antiseptic. To further answer your question, no eucalyptus is not digestible. In fact, it is poisonous to all living animals except the koala bear, ringtail possum and gliders.

    Hi Samer,

    To name a few, some studies show that aloe vera is active against Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonos aeruginosa, and herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2. See how to make aloe vera water here.

    Garlic is active against Tuberculosis, Shigell dysenteriae, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonos aeruginosa, Candida albicans, Escherichia coli (E.coli), Streptococcus spp., Salmonella spp., Campylobacter spp., Protues merbilis, herpes simplex, influenza B, HIV and many others.

    Echinacea is active against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., and mycobacterium (tuberculosis).

    I’d encourage you to do your own research and see how each of these herbs could best fit into your diet or daily regimen!

    I mince the garlic and grind the other herbs. Then stir in with eggs, cilantro, spinach, green onion and peppers for a great omelet.

    How do you use acacia: flowers, leaves, bark, or twigs?
    Also, which acacia is the most powerful? It’s a very arge family of (beautiful) trees!.
    Thank you.

    Hi Cris, Acacia gum can be exuded from the tree and taken orally. After the rainy season, the Gum exudes spontaneously from the trunk and principal branches. Since the flow is small in quantity it is stimulated by incisions in the bark. The botanical families are: Acacia arabica, A. nilotica (LINN.), A. senegal (Willd.), A. glaucophylla (Staud.), A. abyssinica (Hochst.), A. gummifera (Willd), A. gummifera (Willd), Acacia auriculiformis and many more.
