Garlic is a powerful antibiotic. Consuming 3 cloves of garlic is said to be equal to taking one dose of antibiotics, but without the side effects. One way I like to get the properties of garlic into my family is with homemade garlic salve.
This powerful garlic salve takes me 5 minutes to make and is an excellent way to get antibiotics into a patient. When rubbed on the back and chest, it helps with coughs and congestion, as well as getting it into the system; when rubbed on the bottoms of the feet, this salve goes directly into the bloodstream to do its work. You can use it for any illness: fevers, coughs, congestion, flu, viruses, bacterial infections, etc. I do give a natural antibiotic internally along with the salve like colloidal silver, echinacea, raw garlic, etc.
This recipe for garlic salve is taken from Be Your Own Doctor. This book is the one I go to most for times of illness: a must have for every bookshelf!
Homemade Antibiotic Garlic Salve
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well. Strain through a fine strainer and pour liquid into a glass jar. Keep refrigerated.
To use, rub the salve on the chest, back, and bottoms of feet at least 4 times a day. Apply hourly for more serious conditions like pneumonia, croup, whooping cough, serious asthma attacks, etc.
