7. Garlic

Like ginger, garlic is also at its most powerful when it’s consumed raw. Garlic is not only a natural antibiotic; it works to strengthen the immune system. One of the best things about using garlic as an antibiotic is that your body will never develop a resistance to it, nor does the bacteria you are trying to kill. This strong tasting herb won’t damage the bacteria in your digestive tract either. Most herbalists recommend taking one or two organic cloves of garlic, crushing them slightly, and then swallowing them whole. For some people, raw garlic can cause stomach upset, so start with small cloves until your body becomes more accustomed to it. Read how to take garlic medicinally.
