Chemical drugs have a detrimental effect on the human body. As it turns out, there are natural antibiotics that can have a powerful antibacterial effect, according to nutritionist and physician Olha Barova-Abduloieva.

Oregano oil

According to the doctor, this is a well-known powerful antibacterial agent. Its effectiveness has been confirmed not only against H. pylori (Helicobacter) but also against respiratory infection pathogens in cystic fibrosis patients.

Colloidal silver

The physician said that this remedy has proven effective against Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella, and Escherichia coli. However, there have been known cases of irreversible skin color changes to a blue tint after its use.


Olha Borova said that a study involving 755 people showed that echinacea reduces the number of cold episodes by 59% and the duration of colds by 26%, as well as reduces the need for painkillers.

GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract)

GSE is effective against several dozen strains of antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

However, the doctor said that all the above remedies are effective for mild to moderately severe catarrhal (conjunctivitis, rhinitis, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, tracheitis, bronchitis) and other infectious symptoms.

They are not emergency treatments and are not considered cures for bacterial pneumonia and other complex, let alone critical, conditions.
