How To Make Dr. Christopher’s Strep Blend

Strep throat can be a very painful condition. In fact, some would rather have any other sickness because of how miserable it typically is. Today I’m going to share a strep blend using ingredients you likely already have in your cabinet that will help you feel better fast. This formula was created and used by Dr. Christopher himself and has proved to be a great healer for many. [4]

One  of my daughters woke up with a scratchy throat recently. It was the kind that made me think it may just be allergies or sinus drainage so I kept an eye on her but didn’t worry much about it. On day three, however, she woke up with her throat hurting so badly that she could hardly swallow and didn’t want breakfast because it hurt too bad to eat. I realized I needed to get the big guns out and start her on Dr. Christopher’s Strep Blend!

Strep throat is one of those things that you can’t diagnose for sure without a test at the doctor’s office. There are other infections that can cause the throat to hurt so baldy that you think it must be strep and yet it isn’t. So no, I didn’t know for sure that my daughter had strep throat, but I knew we had recently come into contact with people that came down with strep, so it was a possibility. The good news is that natural remedies are safe to use no matter what the condition may be – you don’t have to have a specific diagnosis to treat it. This Strep Blend can be used to boost the immune system and kill infections and viruses of all kinds.

Take note that strep throat is one of those illnesses that CAN be dangerous if you don’t treat it. If left untreated, there is a possibility of rheumatic fever developing. Treat your children immediately when they are sick, and it’s always a good idea to get them checked out at the doctor if you suspect strep to make sure your home remedy successfully treated it.

Strep Blend Ingredients

Garlic

This strep throat blend contains garlic, which is a powerful natural antibiotic! It has broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity against bacteria and fungi. [1] [2] It’s important to use fresh garlic – the kind in the jar isn’t as potent as freshly crushed.

Raw Honey

According to Dr. Axe, raw honey has vitamins, 22 amino acids, 27 minerals, 5,000 enzymes, [3] making it not only a tasty reason to use it in herbal preparations, but a healthy reason as well. Honey that is not raw, however, cannot boast of all of this nutrition. Heating the honey kills beneficial nutrients. In a pinch I would use any honey on hand, but I keep raw honey in my cabinets for regular use. Buy raw honey here.

Cayenne

Cayenne is the last herb in this easy formula. Cayenne is a great catalyst herb in any herbal formula, meaning that it opens up your receptors to absorb vital nutrients. In other words, it helps the other herbs work even better than they would on their own. That is exactly what cayenne does in the formula. Plus it really helps the throat to heal quicker. Buy organic cayenne here.

How I Recently Treated Strep Without Antibiotics



I have not had a run-in with strep throat since a child.  In elementary school I had strep throat often and always took antibiotics for it.  It returned again and again.  Do you know antibiotics can actually make the strep return?  It can.  Many people who treat strep with conventional antibiotics have a recurring strep illness.  Such was the case with me as a child.

 

Within the past few weeks, streptococcal has made its rounds in our house.  Thankfully I have learned that we can find natural alternatives in treating sickness without the use of antibiotics.  Antibiotics destroys your body’s healthy gut flora, compromising the immune system.  I prefer to use natural antibiotics when possible that aid the body’s natural immune system.

 
These are the treatments we successfully used:
 
My girls – Colloidal Silver, Elderberry Syrup, Vitamin C, Epsom Salt Baths

Colloidal Silver - antibiotic, immune booster {Click here to save 15% on colloidal silver at Silver Living Tech by using code JILLHR at checkout}
Elderberry Syrup - immune booster
Vitamin C - helps cleanse the body of toxins so it can recover quicker
Epsom Salt - pulls toxins from the body and nourishes it with minerals

Days 1 -3 – For my 4 children, I gave them 1/2 tsp. colloidal silver and 1 tsp. elderberry syrup hourly {except during sleeping hours}.   I gave them high doses of vitamin C and let them soak in an Epsom Salt bath.  I added 2 cups of Epsom Salts to a bath full of water and had them soak for 20 minutes.

Days 4-10 – I administered silver and elderberry 1-3 times a day.  If any of them showed an increase of symptoms during days 4-10, I increased the dose again.  
 
Fresh Garlic - natural antibiotic; has been shown to kill bacteria
Raw Honey - is antibacterial; makes the mixture taste better
Cayenne - reduces pain and swelling; helps the other ingredients to work more effectively
 
Grate, crush or mince 3 cloves of garlic.  Stir in 1 tablespoon raw honey and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper.  Chew and swallow 1/2 tsp. of this mixture every half hour for 2 or 3 days, or longer if needed.  

Days 1-3 – I took the above garlic remedy every 30 minutes during waking hours.  This is the best remedy for strep!  I felt so much better after just half a day of taking this.  I didn’t give this mixture to my children because they can have a hard time with the taste, though I would administer it to them if it was the only option I had.  I also took high doses of vitamin C, and should have taken a salt bath but never got around to it.  It is harder taking care of yourself when you’re sick than it is taking care of others, isn’t it?

Days 4-5 -  I was really kind of tired of garlic.  I love garlic, but every 30 minutes?  I was wishing for something different.  I could have continued with the garlic remedy and lessened the frequency to say, 3-5 times a day since I was so much better, but I decided to go with something of a completely different taste all together.  So on days 4 and 5, I switched to taking silver and elderberry hourly those days.  I felt almost normal, but my throat still hurt some.   The dose for adults is 1 tsp. of silver and 1 tablespoon of elderberry syrup.

Days 6-10 – Silver or elderberry 1-3 times a day.

As I’ve said, I suffered from strep a lot as a child and remember the horror of it.  I am so amazed and pleased at how well these natural remedies worked for strep in these recent weeks.  Some of my girls had the pussy throats, one threw up, another had the “strawberry tongue” {as pictured above}.  It was quite an ordeal, but we’re bouncing back well with healthy immune systems and our gut flora intact. 

We felt well after 2 or 3 days, but I like to give immune boosters/natural antibiotics of some sort for a total of 7-10 days to make sure the patient is well.


Note:  

  • In other articles I have written about strep, I have had readers think I am an ignorant parent for daring to treat something as serious as Strep at home.  Strep can have dangerous side effects if left untreated.  But I am not leaving them untreated, I am treating them naturally!  And of course if any of my children needed medical attention, I would not hesitate to get them the help they needed!  Many have treated strep at home safely and with great success.  I believe it’s always best to work with the natural immune system if possible.
  • With strep, be sure to eliminate all sugar and dairy.  That cold ice cream may feel wonderful to a sore throat, but these foods WILL hinder your recovery and prolong the sickness, most likely setting you back quite a bit.  
  • With a more serious illness like Strep, you must administer remedies more often as I’ve mentioned above.  Taking remedies only a few times a day for Strep is not sufficient.

Home Remedies For Strep Throat




Strep throat is a contagious infection caused by the streptococcal bacteria. Symptoms normally include fever, sore throat and swollen lymph nodes. Redness, swelling, white or yellow patches are often present on the tonsils also. How do you know if you just have a sore throat and not strep? Strep throat normally runs a high fever of over 101, though sometimes strep doesn’t include a fever. A sore throat will not be as bad with something like a cold, whereas strep will be very painful. Also, patches on the tonsils are a good indication of strep, and swollen lymph nodes, as already mentioned. Lymph nodes are responsible for trapping and destroying germs which causes the swelling.

What are some remedies you can use?  

These are the things I would do:

*Take colloidal silver at least 3 times a day – I would likely take it 5 times that first few days.  Colloidal silver has been proven to *effectively kill the strep bacteria.


*Use Dr. Christopher’s Strep Blend:

1 Tbs. Raw Honey
1/4-1/2 tsp. Cayenne
3 cloves grated garlic
~Mix honey and cayenne together, and add garlic.  Give 1/2 tsp. every 1/2 hour – chew it up and swallow it.  This remedy kills strep withing 24 hours.  I would take this every 1/2 hour for a day or two.  
*If you are experiencing pain from the strep or sore throat, you can gargle with 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper in 1/2 cup warm water for relief. 
*I would also add echinacea.  I really like Double E Immune Booster.  I make tinctures with it to take, or make a strong tea to drink throughout the day.
*Of course Vitamin C is always good to take when sick

*Eliminate all sugars and unhealthy foods – they will only hinder recovery and prolong your sickness.  Instead eat broth made from a whole chicken (not the canned broth).
*For a fever, there are several herbs that can help.  One is adding 1/2 cup of dried sage to 1 cup of boiling water and steeping for 15 minutes.  Take 1 tsp. every hour as needed.  You can also gargle with this tea for sore throats.

NOTE:  I begin remedies as soon as any symptoms appear.  I don’t go to the doctor to see if a person has strep first before treating.  Home remedies help save money! :)  You want to begin remedies as soon as the first signs show before the sickness really takes hold.  Most of the time when taking such actions as above, you will not experience as severe symptoms that you would if you weren’t doing these things (which is GREAT! – I love helping my family not suffer as much! :))   With these remedies, you may not experience a sore throat or white patches on the tonsils (and most likely won’t).  Even if you don’t actually have STREP, all of the remedies mentioned above is good for any illness, and will *effectively kill and treat strep if you do have it.  Some people worry about using remedies for “strep” if they don’t know for sure if they have it.  But all of the above remedies are safe and good for any sickness you may have!  I always start any sickness with colloidal silver and echinacea, with rare exceptions.  There are certain sicknesses that other herbs are better for, but the remedies above are great for strep or sore throat!


Why don’t I want to just go to the doctor for antibiotics?  

Because antibiotics wreak havoc on the immune system.  Click here to read more.  I am thankful for antibiotics in case of a life-threatening situation though! 

And please use common sense – if a person shows no improvement and only worsens, see a doctor! :)
