We appreciate the joys of cozy sweaters, pumpkins, and apple picking but we can't say the same for the sickness that comes with the change of season (we're looking at you cold and flu).
It may seem easier to turn to antibiotics to ward of illness but studies have shown that even short-term use of antibiotics can disrupt the body’s natural gut flora and potentially lead to a spread of antibiotic resistance, which is especially scary since bacterial resistance can't be controlled or killed by antibiotics. Antibiotics can unfortunately lead to more harm than good when it comes to our immunity and digestive systems.
This is why we're spreading the word about safe and natural alternatives to help you combat cold and flu season. We've already shared the benefits of adding oil of oregano to your diet as a natural antibiotic and now we're introducing you to another: Manuka Honey. Manuka honey contains antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal properties and is multi-purpose as it can be used topically or taken orally for internal health benefits.
We like to add a heaping spoonful to a cup of tea or hot water when we feel our immune system is being compromised.
