Amoxicillin and juice fasting???

Ask the Nutritionist

Posted by on 6 years ago I had a nasty inner ear infection that was close to rupturing my eardrum on Day 4. I went to urgent care and stupidly didn't mention my fast. He put me on 500 mg ammoxicillin 2x a day. I'm on Day 8 of the juice fast (day 4 of antibiotics) and my ear is not better, my throat now hurts, and my other ear seems to be bothering me. I made an appointment with my family care doctor today and plan to tell him about my juice fast but I was curious if anyone else has experienced anything similar? I'm hoping my doctor doesn't recommend I go off the fast. I need help. Ay tips? Advice? Encouraging words? Similar stories? Help a fellow juicer out. Aside from this darn infection, I feel WONDERFUL!

    Hi teelabobeela, Your doctor may tell you to have some solid food so you can include whole fruits and vegetables to have with the amoxicillin. Include plenty of garlic, ginger, horseradish and Vitamin C rish foods such as peppers, citrus, berries to help assist for immunity and fight the infection. This week a juice containing horseradish was posted - Include a hot water with fresh lemon and freshly grated ginger. You can also drop a few drops of garlic oil and/or onion juice in the ear to reduce the inflammation, this can also reduce the pain. Let us know how you go or if you have any more questions!
