12 Natural Antibiotics That Our Ancestors Used Instead of Pills

provides interesting and even unusual items of interest regarding our health. Recently there was a blog post outlining the diverse natural substances used by our ancestors when antibiotics were unavailable. In just 70 years antibiotic use has turned into overuse. Here’s what the article says:

Over the last several decades, over-use of antibiotics has reached an all-time high. The result has been drug-resistant bacteria and “superbugs” that evolve faster than scientists can figure out how to fight them. A future where bacteria are at the top of the food chain is not unheard of.

Long before there were pharmaceutical antibiotics – developed in the 1940s, there were foods and herbs that helped guard against infection and disease on a daily basis. Many of these natural defenders are still in use today with holistic healers around the globe.

Our ancestors also had a solution for healing, using antibiotics from nature and it would be good to remind ourselves who these antibiotics are and possibly think about using them in case of an illness.
