Hi... I am about 90% raw now since about April, but I am still taking medications...high blood pressure, thyroid, anti-depressants, high cholesterol.... AND antibiotics for rosacea. I'm wondering if anyone has advice about when and how to wean myself off the meds (except the thyroid, my thyroid does not function now, so I have to have the replacement, but I eventually want to stop the other meds). Most of my health problems are related to obesity....I've lost about 65 lbs since the beginning of the year (have a bunch to go yet), and I'm feeling better...
I don't want to suddenly stop the antibiotic and go back to the skin problems I had with rosacea, but I also don't think the antibiotic is doing my digestive tract much good.
Does anyone have suggestions of natural ways to deal with rosacea and will it improve as I detox? I've been told that once you have it, you have to deal with it the rest of your life. The doc has me on 200 mg of doxcycline a day as a maintenance level, because when I stopped taking it after the initial 3 weeks, the rosacea came right back... But that was before going raw... so I'm curious if anyone has experience or knowledge about this subject, rosacea/antibiotics/raw lifestyle?
