It’s always a good idea to have organic antibiotics on hand, especially if the sh*t hits the fan and supplies are hard to find. The following video recommends 5 different antibiotics and backs them up with medical proof along with what they’re good for.

The following is an excerpt from the video’s website:
1. Oil of Oregano Pills – In my opinion, this is one of the top herbal antibiotic choices. It is very potent- it take 1000 pounds of oregano to make just 1 pound of oil of oregano.
Research says: Georgetown University Medical Center tested oil of oregano in vitro on staphylococcus bacteria. They found that even small amounts were as effective as the standard antibiotic. Also, the Journal of Medicine reported a study where oil of oregano showed significant antibacterial properties against 5 species of harmful bacteria, especially e-Coli.
Oil of oregano has two active compounds- carvacrol and thymol. Dr. Axe says on his website that carvacrol treats or reduces bacterial infections, fungal infections, parasites, viruses, inflammation, candida, and tumors.
Many sources recommended taking oil of oregano for only 2-4 weeks at a time. I personally recommend taking it in pill form due to the strong nature of it. I like the Gaia brand of oil of oregano.
Oil of oregano is also antiviral and antifungal.
2. Olive Leaf– Olive leaf is the leaf of the olive tree and is a very popular herbal antibiotic alternative.
Research says: While some studies show it not to be a broad spectrum antibiotic alternative, it does show activity against harmful stomach bacteria, as well as the often antibiotic resistant MRSA.
Olive leaf is also antiviral and antifungal.
3. Garlic cloves– Very rich in antioxidants. One of the well-known active components of garlic is allicin, which can be found in freshly crushed garlic. However, other parts clearly work in synergy to produce garlic’s beneficial effects, since even aged garlic shows promising health benefits.
Research says: Many studies confirm its antimicrobial properties. One study showed that garlic enhanced the action of the antibiotic gentamicin, and even negated its negative effects on the kidneys. Another study showed garlic to shorten the common cold, and the University of Maryland advises that it may strengthen the immune system.
Garlic is also antifungal and antiviral.
4. Goldenseal– This is a very astringent herb, and is often used for infections of the mucous membranes. It is also used for inflammation. Goldenseal contains antimicrobial alkaloids, the main one being berberine. Goldenseal actually hinders bacteria from adhering to tissue surfaces. Goldenseal is also antifungal, anti-diarrheal, and is effective against protozoa.
Research says: The University of NC confirms its activity against MRSA. In another study, the Egypt Agricultural Center infected fish with bacteria. One set received antibiotics, and one set received goldenseal. The fish that were treated with antibiotics had an 84% recovery rate, whereas the ones treated with goldenseal had an 87% recovery rate.
