View Full Version : Antibiotics and raw food?
12-20-2011, 10:14 PM
Hello! I've been eating raw for eight days now :excited: and I was curious on what taking an antibiotic could be doing as far as helping/hurting my detoxing or health for that matter. I am currently on two medications for acne, Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo (stopped taking that yesterday) and Septra DS which is an antibiotic. I've had good results on this antibiotic as far as acne for years so I would like to stay on it. Are antibiotics a bad drug that needs to rid my system like the rest of them? I guess I'm asking how much damage is this doing to my detoxification?

popular opinion is that the antibiotics kill both the bad and the beneficial bacteria in g.i. tract , so alot of people are really against antibiotics
and only take in serious conditions
and for those taking antibiotics everyone says you should also take probiotics which replace the good bacteria
many get good bacteria by making fermented vegis
a probiotic brand i believe to be vegan and use is : SOLGAR - ADVANCED ACIDOPHILUS PLUS
cost me $15 for 120 capsules

If i was you, i wouldn't take any anti-biotic because i know it would suppress my immune system which i would need to heal this condition.
Your skin is your third kidney, if your kidney cannot keep up, it would go in your skin.
I would stick with raw food, consider to do a detox with live food and study water fasting.
You need a very healthy GI track, good kidney and lymph system.
The first step is to do raw food and eliminate all the chemical.
I am not a doctor please research
All the best.
p.s As you do raw food, you will naturally incline down the road to upgrade your diet. If you do mostly as much fresh fruits, greens and live food, your body will be so grateful to you.

I don't take antibiotics anymore. I just drink Braggs Apple Cider Vinager with water. Its a natural antibiotic. I used to be prone to sinus infections but none since drinking the ACV.
