Antibiotics have become so frequent in use so that people have become resistant to them. They are used for every infection, or present ailment, and because of that they do not have the same influence as before.

Nature has given us many options to treat certain ailments in the most natural ways, and because of that when we are dealing with less severe health conditions like viral infections, cold, flu, earaches, chest congestion and many more, we need to turn to these healthy options:
