In keeping with our goal of examining the latest in health news across the spectrum — as well, of course, as the latest and greatest in massage therapies and information — we thought this blog on natural antibiotics was useful.
Research has proven over the years that prescribed antibiotics can impact our health in not-always-so-healthful ways. Of course, there may be times when you’ll need a prescribed antibiotic… but there may be times when it’s more prudent to check your kitchen or bathroom closet…or even the fridge.
Here’s a list of natural antibiotics you may find you want to try next time you need a cure…plus, some that may not be as effective as you might think.
