Antibiotics

8 posts in this topic

Is it ok to take antibiotics with vitamin and mineral supplements? And will it help the antibiotics If I'm taking vitamin and mineral supplements? I found the antibiotics wernt really doing much, so I stopped and decided to take up vitamin and mineral supplements. Now I'm thinking about combinding the two. Any thoughts?

Buy a good source of mineral water like a good spring water. Only take take antibiotics if you are dieing and 99% of vitamin supplements are a scam and have negative side effects.

if ur taking antibiotics u might want to look into taking probiotics with it so u don't kill all of the good bacteria


MY ROUTINE

AM

1) wash with paula's choice normal to oily cleanser

2) Napca mist from twinlab or the one from nuskin and spray many times to get a good layer of moisture.

3)Avalon organics revitalizing eye gel

4)Cory Minerals (I've found that the secret to cory is to use ur brush to really swirl it around to grind the powder down even finer than it is and then to tap off the excess and start off with thin layers and build.) i also will take a concealer brush and dab it on certain areas that i need to cover up more thickly and then use a bronzer with a big bronzer brush to blend. ( i use estee lauder bronze goddess). i use bronzer all over and this seems to even out everything.

5)Aquaphor for lips.

PM

1)Same PC N/O

2b)some nights I mask with aspirin mixed with milk of magnesia and nuetrogena clear pore cleanser mask in nose and chin area - to make mask i use a small spray bottle with distilled water that i always keep in my bathroom and i take about 8 aspirin in the palm of my hand and spray and mush with my fingers until it is a thick paste. i then add a drop of MOM and put a small amount of neut. clear pore cleanser mask. don't use mask every night.

3)Aubrey organics Vegecol toner

4)Spot treat w/ prosacea gel

5)same on eyes and lips as AM

Most antibiotics are not effective if you take them with calcium, so space the antibiotics at least 2hrs from the supps. Antiacids are the same story, calcium based or other metals no matter.I don't find vitamins or supps really help my skin, but I do feel healthier overall which makes a good diet with wise vitamin and mineral supplementation a good practice.

Antibiotic abuse over time causes more acne, because it makes the flora of the intestines become overgrown with candida.

Derms should have lawsuits filed against them for doing this. It's the dumbest thing they do.
