4. Apple cider vinegar
Start taking this simple remedy today: after your biggest meal of the day, have a cup of water (200 ml) along with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (10 ml).
This easy habit won’t just help with your digestion, but also balance the pH of your body in order to more optimally and powerfully fight bacterial infections.
Treat your body to apple cider vinegar. If you use an organic variety, it’s even better.
5. Garlic tea for fighting infections
If you’ve never had garlic tea before, it’s time. It’s easy to make and offers high amounts of vitamins (A, B1, B2, and C) and antioxidants.
Most people know that garlic is an excellent natural antibiotic.
If you take the step and have it two or three times a week, you’ll be preventing or shortening colds and the flu.
In ancient times, Greek soldiers would drink garlic tea after battles to cure infection. So why not make this a habit after our regular workday “battles”?
6. Cranberry juice
Cranberries taste great, are pretty, and most importantly, help fight infections.
One of their most well-known powers is their ability to help when you have a bacterial infection.
The acidity of cranberries is a sign of their health benefits: it comes from their high proanthocyanidin content, a type of flavanol that is very good at treating cystitis.
One thing that deserves a spot on any list of natural remedies for bacterial infections is lemons.
Fresh lemon juice is great at treating respiratory tract infections.
Now, we should acknowledge that vitamin C doesn’t protect you 100% from sore throats and the like. However, it will help heal infections more quickly and prevent antibiotic overuse, which over time actually weakens your immune system.
To conclude, if your goal is to do a better job of preventing or fighting bacterial infections, you must pay attention to your lifestyle habits.
Nourish your body with fresh fruits and vegetables, drink a lot of water, and sleep well. Plus, don’t self-medicate or use antibiotics without a prescription.
