Nowadays, when most of the microorganisms became resistant to the excessive use of synthetic antibiotics, it’s really necessary to find wiser solutions that Mother Nature has to offer.
Every doctor has this goal: “Primum non nocere” or not to harm their patient.
We all know that synthetic antibiotics cause side-effects that appear immediately or some time after their usage while natural ingredients don’t cause any side-effect.
Researches confirm that nature contains numerous products with antibiotic effects. Propolis is one of them. It’s the most perfect ingredient which cures the human body. Propolis has been traditionally used for over 2000 years. Historic evidence shows that propolis was a very important and appreciated product in the medicine of Egyptians, Babylonian, Arabs, Greeks, Romans and many other antique cultures.
The healing action of propolis
Flavonoids are the ones mostly responsible for the healing properties of propolis. These are pigments present in fruits, vegetables, flowers and wood crust. They have an antioxidant effect and their role is to protect the plants from the pathogen found in the environment. Propolis contains numerous flavonoids: galangin, quercetin, crisin, kaempferol, apigenine, pinocembrin i pinobanksin.
Propolis is one of the wise natural remedies which kills everything that can bother a healthy organism. At the same time, it prevents the healthy tissue and cures the sick tissue.
Numerous researches have confirmed that propolis is a natural anesthetic, antioxidant, antiseptic, antibiotic and acts on most of the viruses including the flu virus. It’s also excellent in the fight against fungus and parasites.
The specialty of propolis is for the bacteria not to create resistance and that there are no harmful appearances, which is actually the fault in the synthetic antibiotics.
It’s extremely efficient in ulcers, burns and stings. Propolis stimulates the creation of new cells and regenerates the damaged tissue. It’s also used in the treatment of ear problems and oral cavity problems. It gives amazing results in the treatment and prevention of throat infections. It also helps in toothaches, paradentosis, unpleasant breath, hemorrhoids, inflammations of the urinary tract and gastritis.
