Natural antibiotics to fight ailments without using drugs: grandmother's remedies to feel good without side effects
Flu, sore throat, cold, were once defined as "seasonal ailments" but nowadays they no longer concern only winter but practically all seasons! Because of the constant changes in temperature, our body is unable to adapt, the immune defenses are lowered and we get sick.
Too often there is a real abuse of drugs, mostly antibiotics. However, not everyone knows that there are real ones natural antibiotics which have no side effects, able to improve many ailments without using chemical drugs.
Traditional antibiotics (deriving from synthetic chemical processes) are used to destroy the so-called "bad" bacteria that invade our body. There are obviously side effects. In fact, the neutralizing effect concerns not only the bacteria that make us sick but also the "good" bacteria such as the so-called intestinal flora (more than 1,000 different bacterial species) which play a fundamental role in our body. The bacterial flora in fact helps the body to defend itself from external pathogens, and when it is eradicated the body loses its "immune shield" and therefore it is easier to contract other diseases.
To avoid all this it is possible to integrate antibiotic treatments by taking probiotic foods or exploit the so-called natural antibiotics.
The main advantage deriving from the use of natural antibiotics lies precisely in the less aggressive action with no side effects compared to synthetic antibiotics. Consequently, the immune system does not weaken and the body is better able to defend itself against diseases.
