Antibiotics are effective towards bacteria infections. However, over-use of antibiotics becomes a major factor causing yeast overgrowth in the body. It suggests that for servere cases antibiotics should still be prescribed, while for milder cases some alternatives should be considered. What is considered to be an alternative to antibiotics?

First of all, preventative approach should be mentioned. Many infections are caused by weak immune functions and stressed healing abilities. Addressing the root issue becomes the major preventative therapy for infections. For example, frequent sinus and ear infections are often caused by virus, allergies and intestinal problems. Many urinary track infections start with yeast overgrowth. In both cases bacterial infection is the consequences of other factors. Without solving the root issue, antibiotics only ease the symptoms and cause more allergies and intestinal issues. Frequent use of antibiotics creates a vicious circle leading to yeast overgrowth and more sinus, ear and urinary track infection in the future.

In the beginning of an infection, alternative approach has to be used as early as possible. If the infection becomes too bad, antibiotics are unavoidable. Here are some natural alternatives to antibiotics:

Herbal remedies are very useful to fight for bacteria and virus. In the beginning of a respiratory or urinary track infection, herbal remedies are very effective to stop the symptoms and prevent further bacterial infection. Common herbs include Aloe Vera, Burdock root, Cat’s claw, Cayenne, Cranberry, Echinacea, Garlic, Golden Seal, Green Tea, Juniper berry, Licorice, Oregano leaf, Pau d’ Arco, Red clover etc. Most of the herbs are available over the counter. Traditional Chinese medicine also provides strong herbal formulas for bacteria and viral infections. But you have to find a specialist to prescribe those herbs.

Homeopathic remedies are another alternative to antibiotics. Homeopathic remedies induce the body’s own ability to fight pathogens. Most of modern homeopathic remedies such as the Rescue Remedy come in a form of formula and are available over the counter. You can combine herbal and homeopathic remedies to increase their efficacy.

Digestive enzymes are often used to treat infections, especially protease. High dosage of protease in an empty stomach helps the immune system to fight for the infection. Many nutritional supplements come in a form of formula containing herbs, vitamins and protease. You can find them in any health food store. In the mean time, reducing stress of the body, drinking more water, sleeping more and eating less sugar and rich foods also are also necessary to help the body fight infection.
