For centuries, the human species has survived because of our ability to find ways to heal our wounds and boost our immune system so that we can fight off infections. It’s only been the last 2 or 3 hundred years that humans have capitalized on the art of healing. Before that, though, our ancestors used herbs as natural antibiotics.
Herbs that fight off bacterial, viral and even fungal infections have been proven over time to be just as effective and sometimes even more effective as today’s pharmaceuticals. Herbs like garlic, which most of us have in our cupboard anyway, have been found to help with all sorts of illnesses. The naturally occurring active ingredient in garlic, called allicin, helps protect and strengthen our immune system. Several herbs, like garlic, can be used as natural medicines and don’t end up costing you an arm and a leg to buy.
