(NaturalHealth365) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) calls the problem of antibiotic resistance, one of the “biggest public health challenges” of our time. Indeed, when pathogens become immune to the medications meant to combat them, it is a public health issue with frightening consequences. Also known as antimicrobial resistance, antibiotic resistance affects nearly 3 million Americans and claims a shocking 35,000 lives each year. Thankfully, essential oils have the ability to combat bacterial and viral infections.
(NaturalHealth365) Let’s be frank about something that the mainstream media doesn’t like to admit: while some people believe that wearing a face mask may help slow the spread of viral illnesses like COVID-19, it doesn’t come without a cost. In fact, there is plenty of evidence revealing the negative health effectsof prolonged use of face coverings, from N95s to cloth masks.

(NaturalHealth365)For a tiny, single-celled organism, Candida albicans can cause some big problems. This fungus exists normally – and harmlessly – in the eyes, mouth, intestines and genitals – unless an overgrowth occurs, toppling the body’s normal balance of microorganisms. The key to all of this is to live an antifungal lifestyle. →
(Natural News) Coconut is a popular health-promoting and versatile medicinal food that provides a variety of benefits, including boosting heart health, reducing stress, and preventing brain diseases like Alzheimer’s. Now, recent research suggests that coconut, specifically coconut oil, has antifungal properties as well. A study published in the American Society of Microbiology’s journal mSphere found that coconut oil can control the overgrowth of Candida albicans, a type of pathogenic yeast,in mice. This suggests that coconut oil can be used as an alternative to antifungal drugs to reduce the risk of contracting infections caused by this pathogen. →
(Natural News)Patients with a candida infection need to eat as many anti-fungal foods as possible. These healthy foods kill the yeast by starving them of sugar and breaking down candida’s cellular walls. One of the best anti-fungal foods is coconut oil. It contains caprylic acid and lauric acid which support the immune system. →
Antibiotic resistant urinary tract infections are increasingly common, leaving many looking for natural alternatives. Grapefruit seed extract may be an effective treatment that is safe, affordable and easily accessible.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a common nuisance, disproportionately afflicting women, most of who will have a UTI at some point in their lives.
