14 Most Powerful Natural Antibiotics Known To Mankind

Numerous diseases and ailments are caused by bacteria, and even though modern medicine has become highly advanced, their most common treatment includes antibiotics.

According to HealthLine:

“Antibiotics are prescription drugs that help treat infections caused by bacteria. Some of the more common infections treated with antibiotics include bronchitis, pneumonia, and urinary tract infections.

Antibiotics work by killing the bacteria causing the infection or by stopping the bacteria from growing and multiplying. Antibiotics only work to treat bacterial infections.

They don’t work for infections caused by viruses, which can include the common cold, runny nose, most coughs and bronchitis, most sore throats, and the flu. So if your doctor doesn’t prescribe an antibiotic for your cold, there’s a good reason for it — it won’t work!

There are many different groups, or classes, of antibiotics. All of these classes have side effects, which typically affect men and women in the same way. However, certain side effects are more common in some antibiotics than in others.”

The most common side-effects of antibiotics include:

  • Soft stools, diarrhea
  • Upset stomach
  • Fungal (yeast) infections like thrush
  • Rashes

Yet, their use can also lead to complications such as:

  • Vaginal yeast infection with white discharge and severe itching
  • Mouth sores or white patches in the mouth or on the tongue
  • Severe allergic reactions that cause difficulty breathing and facial swelling
  • Severe watery or bloody diarrhea or stomach cramps

Antibiotics can cause long term side effects, but they are infrequent.
