There are numerous benefits of using herbal antibiotics. These substances are highly effective, safe, and inexpensive compared with chemically synthesized drugs. Herbal remedies or phytotherapy have been used for many years to treat different kinds of diseases. Herbal medicines may be combined with conventional treatments, such as chemotherapy, to treat drug-resistant infections. Antibiotics can also help reduce damage to our microbiome, which may protect us from cancer.
Herbs are generally less likely to cause side effects than drugs. Although some herbal preparations can interact with conventional medications, this is rare (Fugh-Berman and Ernst 2000). This makes them safe for use in children, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, adults, and the elderly. In addition, people who are allergic to specific chemicals may only take certain herbal medicines because they do not contain the allergenic substance. With these benefits, herbal antibiotics may eventually replace synthetic antibiotics.
