The at-home remedy you should
try before using antibiotics
A couple of weeks ago, I showed you how antibiotics can increase a woman's risk for breast cancer by 50%. But if you don't use antibiotics to treat an infection, what can you use? After all, some infections are life-threatening.
Fortunately, there are several ways to fight infections naturally. I've told you about a few of these in the past. But today, I like to tell you about one incredible home remedy I use for fighting infections. It works really well for colds, flus, and many other infections. But before I tell you about this simple remedy, I need to explain one thing.
Just because antibiotics are overused, it doesn't mean that they are never required. In fact, I still use antibiotics. I have a busy medical practice in which I see hundreds of patients each week. Many of them have infections. I treat the great majority of these infections without antibiotics. But every now and then, it becomes apparent to me that the risks of the antibiotic are outweighed by the risks of the infection. So I write about 10-20 prescriptions for antibiotics each year in select cases.

So what should you do if your doctor recommends an antibiotic? Simply ask him if it's so urgent that you can't try some natural therapies first. I personally believe that antibiotics are probably not needed 90% of the time they are used. That means that there's about a 90% chance that a natural therapy will be all that you will need. Most doctors would rather not use an antibiotic unless they really feel they have to. So for the majority of infections, why not first use a natural therapy, and leave the antibiotics for the more serious cases?
So what is this powerful at-home remedy you can use to fight infections? It's a very special preparation that I call Dr. Navarro's Magic Potion. I learned this from a wonderful naturopathic doctor from Haiti, and it really works. Here's how you make it.
Blend the following in a blender:
16 oz bottle of apple cider vinegar
¬ cup of extra virgin olive oil
2 whole bulbs of peeled garlic
2 onions (medium sized)
6 teaspoons of cayenne pepper (If this amount of cayenne is too hot for you, use less)
Thumb size piece of fresh ginger
After you've blended the ingredients, take two tablespoons four times daily. Children should take only two teaspoons for a child. Take it only as long as the infection is present (7-10 days).
You'll be wonderfully surprised at how well this concoction works. And in the upcoming issue of my Real Cures newsletter, I tell you about two prescriptions I've seen work wonders in many infections. And neither one is an antibiotic. If you're not a subscriber, you can sign up by following this link.
