Antibiotics are drugs that the doctors prescribe to treat and prevent bacterial infections. If used properly, antibiotics prevent the expansion of bacteria that provoke ear infections, stomach issues, and skin problems. However, antibiotics provide short-term effects. Therefore, the best way to treat bacterial infections is by using certain foods that can act as natural antibiotics.
So, the natural antibiotics you are about to find below will use the use of pills and won’t kill the ‘good’ bacteria in your stomach. These foods were commonly used by our ancestors to treat numerous health problems:
Turmeric was used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, due to its potent medicinal properties. It can remove bacteria effectively and promote the natural protection for the body.

Thanks to its powerful natural antibiotic characteristics, ginger cures numerous bacteria-related problems. Ginger, being a potent antibiotic, provides positive results in the combat against Salmonella, respiratory, and periodontal infections.
To make a ginger tea, roast on 1 inch of ginger and put it to boil in 1 ½ cups of water for about 10 minutes. Then, add some honey and lemon juice and drink it immediately. Or, you can also use ginger capsules if you want.
Garlic contains potent antifungal, antibiotic, and antiviral features. In a 1999 study, it was proved that garlic is rich in allicin, a sulfur compound that acts as a natural antibiotic.
