"Naturopathic medicine supports the body's innate ability to heal itself"
If you are amongst the growing population that does not want to take Antibiotics every time you get sick, know there ARE other options! Nature provides us with many tools to help support the immune system in being antimicrobial against invading microorganisms. Garlic is a well known antimicrobial. The next time you're sick, try crushing a clove of fresh garlic, let it sit for a few minutes, then add to warm water. You can also add fresh squeezed lemon, non-pasteurized honey, cinnamon, or some cayenne for an extra kick. Drink 2-3 cups throughout the day and watch nature work its wonders. Also remember, that sleep is when our body's healing mechanisms are most active - so the more sleep, the better when you're sick.
When you know better, you do better!
Here is an excellent article listing some of nature's best antibiotics.
