I'm on clindamycin for strep throat but I DO NOT want to take it I've read bad reviews. And im having stomach discomfort. Has anyone cured strep throat not on antibiotics??
I've yourself some nutrition as well, some lime, and honey, and try to rebuild your gut, your germs are out of whack
I just cured myself from a horrible flu/ ear infection with it! First time using it from recommendations on this page.
What do you mean you are ON clindamycin, but you do not want to take it, are you taking it or not
I am taking it. But I do not want to
I would make sure you eat before you take it. That way it will lesson the stomach discomfort. It's actually one of the few antibiotics I can take. You can gargle with peroxide and water. I actully did the gargle one year when it hit me on a Saturday morning. My throat was so sore it felt like knives everytime I tried to eat. I gargled every hour on the hour that day and bu Sunday morning it was so much better. Take 1 tsp of 15+ Manuka honey up to 3 times a day. It will coat your throat and it does kill strep. I'd also up your vitamin c levels. I usually take the normal does in the morning and at night when I'm sick. Anything that will up0 your immune system to help fight it off.
My licensed naturopathic dr. Cured me with many respitory infections using homeopathic tinctures she blended and hydrotherapy...try to find one, they are often not 'in network' but a little extra paperwork and research on ur part and insurance should cover visits.
not much you can do if you are taking antibiotics, other than try to recover after you do it.
Can’t you do a zpack or something not as invasive? I believe my untreated strep last year Led to pericarditis (inflammation around heart sac) not trying to scare you, just my own experience. I didn’t realize I had strep until I found out 2 wks later after my throat being super sore but I wrote it off as a summer cold, but my daughter had a sleepover & a mom sent her child after being dx the same day with strep (so the antibiotics had not kicked in yet). I didn’t realize until I was in the hospital with chest pains & was told an untreated infection spread. Strep is the one thing I don’t mess around with. You can always rebuild your gut microbiome after you kill the infection
What's a zpack??
Zithromax. It’s an antibiotic most ppl don’t have adverse affects & it’s usually a very short treatment 5 days or sometimes 3 days!
I'm scared of getting c diff from this clindamycin. Is this a less side effect with that?? My stomach has been cramping
Silvia Jorgensen definitely less side effects with Zithromax in my experience anyways. A doctor tried to give me cipro for a sinus infection once and I was scared as heck after all the side effects
It is killing good and "bad" bacteria indiscriminately, this is malpractice to me, if you get c-diff, you will long for the strep throat.
Im a believer in the Manuka honey now. I turned down antibiotics at the doctor and used it instead to cure the flu/ double ear infection I had last week.
These side effects are the effects of the drug, all allopathic doctors are going to prescribe things like this for you, it is all they can do for you, you have to heal yourself. I would like to see what they do for their own families, that info should be available to a patient
Very true like every oncologist that would never do chemo in a million years. Things that make you go hmmm
Pee will heal everything, but not when you are on drugs, it would have knocked out the strep in one or two days
When it is soothing your throat, sip it slowly, let it do it's thing. Never gargled, but it should not be a problem
while enhancing your gut, not killing everything it can in there
Unfortunately, Strept throat, a streptococcus infection, is pretty dependent on some manner of antibiotic. It was once called the Morbid Sore Throat and killed people before antibiotics were in wide use. It can also cause Scarlet Fever, which in turn can cause heart damage. You can try Silver? Or oregano oil? But, while I am a staunch practitioner of natural medicine, antibiotics (penicillin is actually quite natural, being a form of blue bread mold) have their place... İt is up to us to use them with a clear head
Manuka honey works like a antibiotic.
It can, absolutely... And I’d use Manuka for many things... But as big of a deal as Streptococcus is? Maybe not
pee is an antibiotic
No, don't drink urine.
do not drink if you want to be healed
I had a friend that has it, one drink and he felt instant relief
Good freaking grief, please do not drink urine...
David Christopher you are very misguided.
A round of fresh crushed garlic. Crush a clove.. Let it sit and turn color for about 5 to 10 min... Then get a bottle of water and wash it down like a pill. Do this for 5 days.. Morning and night.. Like you would a regular antibiotic.. İt's a natural antibiotic. You will start to feel better but keep doing the whole round of garlic. Add flora to your tummy... Eat some yogurt or you can buy it at the health food store. You will end up with a lot of energy too. Feel better!
I had strep last summer and try to avoid antibiotic at all costs. I tried everything... Garlic and lemon, colloidal silver oil of oregano, wild sage, copious amounts if water and hydrotherapy. Nothing really worked. I thought it was a little better and then an access formed and began to shut off my breathing pipe. I did go on antibiotic after going to emergency. I wouldn't fool around with step throat was a lesson learned here.
Glenda Jean Just out of curiosity, did you try pee
No, Ihadnt learned about that one yet.
That is what I am doing here, trying to get the truth out. They hate pee, it is unique to you, free, antimicrobial, sterile and it works, their worst nightmare
We just got through this naturally. Eliminate inflammatory foods (processed items, sugar, gluten, grains, dairy), drink lots of filtered water, take daily detox baths (very warm water, 2c. Baking soda, 2c. Epsom salts, high-quality juniper and/or rosemary essential oils), and apply high-quality oregano, tea tree, and Thieves essential oils to the throat, spine and feet every 2-4 hours.
Probiotics 3times a day before each meal, strong antioxidants OPC3 and ORAC, vitamin C 5000mg a day, lots of lemon water, herbal and ginger tea from real ginger chopped in boiled water with lemon and raw honey, green natural juice, chicken broth with veggies and parsley, garlic, diet with lots of greens and fruits also gargalle every 2hours with warm water with salt and baking soda. Rest as much as possible! PM for more info
Find a way to deal with the antibiotics. Strep can become dangerous and even fatal if not handle correctly. The bacteria hitch a ride to other parts of the body and sepsis can set in. Leading to amputations and death. Sometimes you just gotta swallow the pill
I have. Gone within 24 hours. Look up Dr. Freidman's antibiotic protocol.
Katie Bradley I sent it to you.
Yes... good probiotics, sunshine, clean water, homemade ckn soup with sea salt, scallions, minced garlic... I whisk a free range egg in right before serving... Also, a good chiro can open your lymph system... And garlic oil the sinuses... You can gargle with hydrogen peroxide/water... Half each... Couple times a day...
Pure undiluted oregano oil a couple of drops in the mouth and let it stay in throat for a moment before swallowing, 3 times a day minimum. Can be taken again when needed. As well as Colloidal Silver 10 ppm or higher 3 times a day 1 teaspoon on an empty stomach or in between meals
