Bacteria and virus have ruled the earth for over a billion years. We have TRILLIONS of bacteria and viruses living on and in us. Without them, we could not survive.
What we have with bacteria and virus is called a symbiotic relationship. We work together.
Because of diet, the standard American digestive system has 1-3 strands of good bacteria with hundreds of bad bacteria. I feel most of our illnesses and pain start with an unhealthy microbiota. Microbiota..small animal life.
How can we strengthen our troops in this relationship with the bacteria and viruses? On our largest organ, skin, we need to use natural products like grapeseed, argon, and coconut oil. Did you know coconut oil is anti-fungal, anti-viral and antibacterial? And coconut oil has an spf of 10. Add a little mint essential oil and you will love applying it every day. Stop paying 100 at the spa to have a facial with pumpkin, avocados and cucumbers, all with antibacterial properties, and make them at home weekly.
The most common food born bacteria e coli can be combatted by adding foods like garlic, ginger, honey, echinacea and oregano each day to your diet.
In digestion, most herbs like oregano, thyme, mint, echinacea have antibacterial properties.
Fermented foods like kombucha, kefir, miso, kimchi, sauerkraut and brined vegetables are probiotic with live cultures. Eat fermented foods every day.
Raw Apple cider vinegar, unprocessed, is a must have for hair skin digestion. Take a tablespoon in a glass of water or tea 2 times a day.
