If a natural therapy medicinal plants a weakness, and it is the absence of strong antibiotic effects. One of the reasons why in the 20th century regarded herbal medicine in Europe for survival was just triumph over penicillin herbs. Questions on herbal treatment of bacterial infections caused me to for me to be antibacterial adapgogeny looked closer.

Good antibiotics are relatively rare. Infectious diseases are life-patients so dangerous that when doctors take their treatment thankful relatively toxic medications only when their strong antimicrobial effect. Ever since Paracelsus thus to treat infections in Europe use mercury, which in the 20th century complement of arsenic, bismuth, colloidal silver and finally sulfonamides and β-lactam (penicillin, cephalosporin, ...), tetracycline and other antibiotics. The therapeutic index (i.e. the ratio between poisonous and effective dose) of these compounds is often quite inconvenient, so it is necessary to prepare the dosage forms (tablets, injections ...) allowing a precise dosage.

Scarcity of antibiotics has - what else - evolutionary reasons. Bacteria are in fact the fastest replicating existing organisms. Their generation lasts in the optimum case, only 30 to 60 minutes, so that for one day in the bacterial population will replace 1-2 dozen generations. At this rate of evolution bacteria relatively quickly acquire resistance to almost any antibiotic. A natural antibiotics as sage and lavender are best prepared bacteria. In other words, natural antibiotics from conventional plants in the bacterial world too patched the known than to engage.

For other diseases, such as atherosclerosis or diabetes, such a restriction does not exist - in fact, these diseases do not develop evolutionarily, do not adapt to the treatment, so the herbs they still take just as effectively. Located on the border of a cancer that develops evolutionary, but only until the moment the patient's death - cancer is not transferable and does not pass the experience gained evolutionary other patients.

Bacteria surprise only substances chemically unusual - was therefore in the 20th century with such success example sloučninami heavy metals bismuth, arsenic and silver (colloidal silver) and later with fungal-type antibiotic penicillin. But even those bacteria already over 50 years of mass use accustomed to - once rare β-lactamase (penicillinase) are now standard equipment genomes of bacterial pathogens of man.

It does not mean that antibiotics also exist that meet the definition of adaptogen. But it is another requirement in addition ,, which narrows the already rare good group of antibiotics. (It's like trying to groom was not a multimillionaire, but also young and handsome at the same time.)

One could expect that bacteria still surprise so far little used antibiotics from exotic plants, among which would probably have found several adaptogens. But it is true that their mass by utilizing their price (ie. Efficiency) fell again. Antibiotics consistently act only if they are used only rarely, or if you hold it any plant or fungus as their "secrets". They know that the soldiers who their antibiotics against your biological weapons published. Only in the wild growing plants and fungi are ruthlessly robbing us, the people.

For example, it is frequently mentioned "antibiotic" plant barberry and goldenseal.

Below, under " Other natural options ", you'll find mention of other potentially antibiotic plants (Baikal skullcap etc.) Otherwise, the golden staphylococcus is forgiveness bugger even against ordinary antibiotics is often resistant.

Antibiotic effects hub

When talking about the absence of known strong antibiotic effects of conventional medicinal plants, it does not apply to medicinal mushrooms - Even penicillin comes from mold. If you only focus on the classic mushroom (Macromycota), I came across an interesting Italian study ( Bianco1981bra ) which measured the antimicrobial effects of several dozen forest Basidiomycetes and effectiveness against Staphylococcus aureus found in křehutky brown-gray (Psathyrella spadiceogrisea) pstřeně oak (Fistulina hepatica) , troudntatce contraband (Fomitopsis pinicola) houževnatce edible (shiitake, Lentinula edodes) and magic mushrooms fecal (Deconica coprophila). Shiitake can easily buy all the other mushrooms grow with us, although I do not know how frequently. If found illuminated by a forester or forest living folk healer who / s by this combination of mushrooms collected (a) and appropriately processed (a) on the potion and the potion he would quite likely to Staphylococcus aureus worked. Note: Psilocybin feces are among nehalucinogenní magic mushrooms, so she in this direction do not have to worry if we move beyond the nature of what we usually grows. Lastly, I mentioned that some antibiotic properties against golden staph i have aplanoxidové acids and triterpenoids lingzhi mushroom (see eg. SmaniaJunior2006ddn ), but I do not clear their pharmacodynamics nor does it, at what dosage, these antibiotic effects could possibly occur.

Wobenzym and ginseng

About Wobenzym in this indication there are positive messages. Ginseng I specifically for this infection recommend it, because I'm not sure if this would not detract immune system from the main pathogens (Staphylococcus aureus). But it's just my subjective opinion. I do not add that no information coming from me are not used for medical purposes and any treatment drugs natural and synthetic must follow the responsible physician.
