Not too long ago, medicine looked a lot different. Our ancestors had to rely on the land to provide antibiotics and natural cures, yet today we can walk into a doctor’s office and walk out with a prescription. While we can thank modern medicine for rapidly increasing the human lifespan (no small feat!), there is still a place for natural cures.
IN THIS ARTICLE, WE’LL DISCUSS 11 OF NATURE’S MOST USEFUL ANTIBIOTICS.
1. GARLIC & ONION
Garlic and onion share common medicinal properties. Both also contain natural antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-cancer agents. According to the journal publication Pharmacognosy Reviews, “At the time when antibiotics and other pharmacy products did not exist, a bulb of garlic itself represented a whole pharmacy industry due to the broad spectrum of effects.”
2. GINGER ROOT
Ginger, an incredibly versatile plant, can be eaten fresh, powdered, or dried as a spice. You can also consume it as an extract, oil, capsule, lozenge, or tincture. Ginger helps relieve nausea, loss of appetite, and motion sickness. As an antibiotic, ginger acts as a potent anti-inflammatory and a decent general-purpose pain reliever.
3. COCONUT OIL
Speaking of versatile, consider coconut – or in this case, coconut oil. A natural antibiotic, it helps cure coughs, candida, inflammation, and even warts.

Coconut oil is also a good antibiotic because of its antiviral and antifungal properties.
