I can attest to most of these – but had never heard of the sliced onion to kill bacteria – great idea!
Here Are the Best Natural “Antibiotics”
Oregano Essential Oil
Oregano is so much more than just a common flavouring used in Italian dishes. Oregano oil aids digestion and weight loss and the oil in oregano, Carvacrol, is a natural antimicrobial that can fight bacteria that cause infections as well as combat Candida overgrowth. This is arguably the first supplement you should reach for when you develop a cold or flu. However, you need to be careful when consuming it as it’s extremely strong and can upset your stomach or burn (although the burning sensation is natural), so make sure you dilute it properly in either water or carrier oil and only take the recommended daily dosage!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has antibiotic, anti-fungal, and antiseptic properties that can naturally alkalize your body, which can help prevent or fight cancer in some cases (read more about that in our CE article here). This special type of vinegar can also combat heartburn, manage weight, and lower cholesterol. It can also be used as a sterilizer or disinfectant when used topically, or can be a delicious addition to salads and other recipes!
Honey is another excellent natural source of “antibiotics,” as the enzyme found in honey releases hydrogen peroxide, making it perfect for naturally treating wounds and preventing infection. In fact, ancient Romans actually used it on the battlefield in order to prevent infection and treat them. Please note that it is crucial that you purchase raw, unpasteurized, and preferably organic honey, as regular commercial honey is highly refined and stripped of many of its health benefits as a result. Honey can also alleviate digestive issues, colds, and sore throats.
You may have heard that garlic is excellent at fighting the common cold, which is entirely true! Its powerful flavour is an excellent match for its powerful healing properties, as the allicin in it protects against yeast, parasites, bacteria, Candida, and more. Allicin is one of the active principles in freshly crushed garlic homogenates, which has a variety of antimicrobial activities. Keep in mind that this is especially powerful within raw garlic!
This natural antibiotic has been used for centuries, and is one of my personal favourites, as it’s cured me of many severe throat infections. Colloidal silver is a mixture of silver particles suspended in fluid. Though meant to be a temporary treatment, since silver, a heavy metal, can be toxic, it can be used to stop the enzymes that single-cell bacteria need in order to multiply.

Ginger is a natural antibiotic and anti-bacterial. It’s also used for other medicinal purposes such as curing colds, nausea, asthma, colic, heart palpitations, swelling, and stomach aches. You can read more about ginger’s powerful medicinal properties in this study here.
Onion is scientifically proven to hold antibacterial properties and it’s known to quite literally suck illness, sickness, and toxins right out of the body. A few cut open onions in a house will remove tons of bacteria up from your living space!
Horseradish root contains isothiocyanates (ITCs), which are proven to hold antibacterial properties. As a result, it can be used as a natural “antibiotic.” The oil that causes the stronger taste of horseradish (as well as mustard and wasabi) is called allyl isothiocyanate, or mustard oil, which is a proven antimicrobial against a number of pathogens.
Not only are Habanero peppers well-known for being one of the spiciest peppers, but they’re also known for their antibacterial properties. In fact, you can even just use Habanero chili sauces to fight against bacteria!
Curcumin, the bioactive substance found in turmeric, has both antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Turmeric has gained a ton of popularity lately, particularly due to its medicinal properties as an anti-inflammatory. What’s more, turmeric has been scientifically proven as an effective counteractive agent against cancer, auto-immune disease, inflammatory disease, and a whole lot more. You can read more about the powerful healing abilities of turmeric in our CE article here!
