Today, antibiotics are prescribed for all infections indiscriminately and as a result of this, there is increased microbial resistance, the evolution of super-bugs like the MRSA’s, the ESBL organisms, the resurgence of fatal viral infection and fungal diseases, and a population that is grossly immunologically compromised. So, we’d like to recommend some natural alternatives to antibiotics.
One taste of turmeric and you’ll know why this vivacious root vegetable has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to cleanse the liver, reduce arthritic inflammation, and improve energy levels.
