what antibiotics are ok?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
okay, no saga, but ds is suddenly mainly weaning, I'm engorged, running a fever, and feeling like I have the flu.
So, seems like a breast infection. I'm going to the dr. tomorrow (not one I've used before -- we're rather new in town) and I think he will probably prescribe antibiotics (whichwill be welcome at this point)
anyone know what is/is not okay?
ds doesn't bf much lately, but I still want to be on the safe side, esp. bc there's a slim slim slim chance I'm pg.
(it's so hard to know when you don't get your period for 3 years)

Amoxicillin is the safest for bf mothers. I'd also get some colloidal silver and take 1 tsp. 2-3 x a day. Colloidal Silver is a very effective, safe natural antibiotic w/ no side-effects. It's great at fighting tough infections- viral and bacterial. Oh, be sure to supplement w/ acidophilus if you take the amoxicillin.

I have a sinus infection and have been fighting it for a week - I don't want to go to the Dr because she will perscibe an anitibiotic for sure. Will colloidal silver treat this type of infection too??? Is it a perscription or HFS item??

Thanks for any info - my head is about to fall off!

The silver should work. It's gotten me better so quick when other stuff did nothing for me... try doing a search for it on the web, there's a bunch of really informative sites. Oh, and it's sold at most health food stores and coops. I can't remember the brand I use, but I know it's 500 ppms (method of measurement), and the dose size says 1/4 tsp. but I take 1 tsp. 3 x a day when fighting a real tough sickness, and I see results w/in 24 hours. Be sure to drink plenty of purified water too. Garlic is also a natural antibiotic. You may want to take them in conjunction... as well as vitamin C.

If you ever want to get info about the effects of various drugs on breastmilk, Dr. Thomas Hale's reference book "Medications and Mothers’ Milk" 2000 Edition is a good resource. Many LC's have a copy, and will usually let you take a peek or do a lookup themselves for you.

I'm heading down the the Coop to get some Silver and give it a try - can't hurt! I've been uping my garlic and Vit C already.
