Living a healthy lifestyle shouldn’t be that hard right? To be honest there are just a few habits you need to imply and you should be fine. First and foremost, you should exclude refined sugar products and trans fats, and eat more of whole foods such as grains, fish, nuts, vegetables and fruits, and eggs. On the other hand, by getting around 7-8 hours of sleep your daily routine will be much easier to cope with. Regular exercise 3-4 times a week is something that should become your habit as well, and let’s not forget positive mindset should always be there as a support. Still, even with people that follow these habits, certain medical conditions seem to occur. And one of the most common problems is bacterial infections. To be honest, these know to be pretty persistent and can be potentially life-threatening if left untreated.
Now, as you might know, the number one way to cope with bacteria is by using antibiotics. Antibiotics have become a staple in our life, and the easiest way for a doctor and for you is so taking a pill and stay on the safe side. But antibiotics aren’t all safe and healthy and most carry certain side effects as well. Along with that, by the massive use of antibiotics in the past few years we have all contributed to forming bacteria that are antibiotic-resistant and that are more dangerous than ever. But if antibiotics shouldn’t always be the primary solution what are your options? Well, believe it or not, certain natural remedies to a great job in coping with bacterial infections – the whole point is to strengthen your immune system and allow it to safely fight off the persistent condition.
Without further ado, let’s go ahead and take a look at the natural methods to fight off bacterial infections!
Going With The Holistic Approach
First and foremost, before trying any of the natural remedies you should do proper research and consult with your doctor only to see if the condition is still mild enough to be treated without certain medications. As mentioned above, with bacterial infections it is your immune system and gut that needs the most support. Thus, you should go with it and adapt your diet accordingly. First and foremost, you should be eating more cayenne pepper as it is a powerful bacteria killer and something that will reduce throat pain if you are feeling such. Along with that, if you are having troubles with gut health and gut bacteria you should improve that by eating more of probiotic-rich foods such as yogurt and kephir (supplements can come in handy as well). Don’t forget, your immune system plays a huge role in fighting off the bacteria thus eating certain herbs like Elderberries, and more of food rich in Vitamin D and A will allow your body to fight at a greater pace. And yes, eat raw garlic – it is seen as one of the best anti-bacteria foods out there (don’t mind the taste and the smell – it is worth it).
Along with that, we recommend that you take a detoxing clay bath which can allow your body to cleanse of all the toxins and kick the bacteria as well. And a thing that is not mentioned that much is colloidal silver – if you can find some in your region we do recommend that you take it internally as it can boost your immune system and act as a great compound in fighting off bacteria.
Are These Natural Methods Enough
This all depends on the stage of bacterial infection and what area is affected by it – is it gut throat, or urinary tract. One of the most principles in following these natural methods is to go by your intuition and natural sense – do what feels good and right, supporting your acts with adequate research along the way. Now, if your doctor recommends that you should be taking some antibiotic as well due to the nature of infection you should ask if Cipro is an option. It is seen as one of the most effective antibiotic medications out there and doesn’t seem to have as much of the side effects as others on the market do. Cipro can be found in tablets or powder, and it seems to be effective whether we are talking about urinary tract, gut, throat, or an abdomen infection.
Bacteria infection isn’t something that should be left untreated as such a condition can be potentially life-threatening. On the other hand, though antibiotics are mostly recommended as a number one solution, the above mentioned natural methods could be of great help and by following such a holistic approach you will be doing your overall health a favor!
