Please keep in mind this list is merely a reference for some of the many antibacterial and antiviral herbs in this world. Some are best mixed with others for the full medicinal effect. Some can only be taken for a short time before a rest is required from them before continuing the dosage. As with all medicines, it is best if you consult a medical practitioner before taking anything, especially anything new, since some people are predisposed to certain plant allergens and some herbs should not be combined with other medications, alcohol, pregnancy or breastfeeding.

The world is filled with natural medicines. But it is imperative that we show respect for them and be smart about taking them.
