(NaturalNews) You can't throw a rock nowadays without hitting a doctor who is eagerly waiting to prescribe antibiotics for nearly any infection, bacterial or not. Facing the onslaught of patient after patient complaining about cold and flu like symptoms, antibiotics become the easy out for doctors to pack them up and send them on their way. However, patients are becoming much wiser and are actively looking to avoid antibiotics any chance they can get. That becomes much easier with these natural antibiotic solutions.

Colloidal silver

Colloidal silver has been known as a remarkable antibiotic for centuries. In the early 1900's, Alfred Searle, founder of the Searle Pharmaceutical Company, discovered that silver in colloidal form could kill the most deadly pathogens. Searle wrote:

"Applying colloidal silver to human subjects has been done in a large number of cases with astonishingly successful results...it has the advantage of being rapidly fatal to microbes without toxic action on its host. It is quite stable. It protects rabbits from ten times the lethal dose of tetanus or diphtheria toxin."

Recent research has backed this up, showing that colloidal silver can destroy antibiotic resistant microbes like MRSA, the bird flu and SARS.

For safe usage of colloidal silver, the Silver Safety Council recommends using the following formula: 12 x your weight (lbs)/ppm = drops per day of your silver supplement.

Garlic cloves

Allicin, one of the active components of fresh crushed garlic, has a wide variety of antimicrobial activities. In its pure form, it exhibits antibacterial activity against several strains of bacteria, including multidrug-resistant enterotoxicogenic strains of Escherichia coli (E. coli).

It also exhibited antifungal activity, particularly against Candida albicans, as well as antiparasitic and antiviral activity. This increases its effectiveness in order to keep bad bacteria in check.

For garlic to be effective as a healing agent and general antibiotic, it needs to be raw. It should also be crushed and exposed to air for ten minutes before it's consumed to fully activate its key germ-killing compound.

Lemon juice

Lemon juice has antibacterial and antiviral properties and high levels of vitamin C, which adds a synergistic effect in fighting off all kinds of infections.

Lemons are also very low in sugar, which helps starve rogue microbes by not feeding them directly. This also boosts your immune system, so it can do a more effective job of keeping your body clean of any foreign pathogens. Combine that with the fact that lemon juice balances pH to create an internal alkaline environment, and you have created an ideal atmosphere that is hostile to disease.

Use organic, thin-skinned lemons for the most benefits.

An antibiotic tea

One of the easiest ways to fight a bacteria infection is to make a warm tea (100-120°F) teeming with antibacterial components. Not only does it give your digestive system a break to free up energy for the immune system to effectively attack the invading microbes, but it also allows you to create a concoction that provides synergistic effects that increase your results exponentially.

1 Pau D' Arco tea bag
Juice of 1 lemon
2 medium cloves of garlic
1 tsp of unpasteurized honey (also a proven antibacterial food)
Your recommended dose of colloidal silver (as above)
Add: 12-16 oz of warm (100-120°F) water

In the end, the most effective way to ward off dangerous bacteria is to consume as many antibacterial foods and beverages as possible, limit your sugar intake, control your stress, increase your natural forms of vitamin C and take immune boosting herbs on a daily basis. After all, prevention is your biggest weapon in our bacteria filled world, and the least costly.
