There are four main kinds of germs:
- Bacteria – one-celled germs that multiply quickly and may release chemicals which can make you sick
- Viruses – capsules that contain genetic material, and use your own cells to multiply
- Fungi – primitive vegetables, like mushrooms or mildew
- Protozoa – one-celled animals that use other living things for food and a place to live
Antibiotics kill not only the bad bacteria, but also the good bacteria (stomach flora) in your gut. That “good bacteria” is crucial for your immune system to function properly.
Cells in our bodies are surrounded by an oily membrane.
Bacteria are found on the outside of these cell walls and Viruses are on the inside of the cells.
Regular antibiotics cannot penetrate the cell wall and so they only work on bacterial infections NOT on viruses (and many times cause side effects).
Essential Oils CAN penetrate the cell wall and are therefore effective against bacteria AND viruses.
The following DoTerra Essential Oils have been proven to be most effective in killing microorganisms -without side effects and your body will never become immune to them!
