NEED CONFIRMATION ON HOW MANY OF TED'S REMEDIES I CAN TAKE

Hi Ted, I am a 48yr old woman with several health issues. I have had CFS for approx 15 years. However, my biggest problem is Candida and all that comes with that for example:- Leaky gut, chemical sensitivities, chronic hayfever, chronic constipation, thrush, thinning hair, numerous food sensitivities, poor sleep and undigested food.

I have been reading a lot of the information that you have written and am really delighted that someone is willing to give up sooo much of their time to help other people.

Could you please verify if I am on the right track with the remedies that I am currently taking. I have scanned a lot of your information and have tried to use this in improving my own health.

1. I no longer eat wheat, dairy, potatoes, mushrooms, fruit, yeast, peanuts and sugar.

2. I am consuming 2 x Tblspn fresh lime juice with 1/2 tspn bicarb soda first thing every morning & last thing at night.

3. 1/4tspn sea salt in 1 litre of drinking water.

4. Vitamin B 5days on 2 days off. Vitamin C every 2nd day. 1 tbspn of lecithen before meals 3times a day and evening primrose & flaxseed capsules daily, 1 x digestive enzyme with each meal.

However, I am still a little constipated and need to know if I can use a few of your remedies at the one time, for example can I continue to use the lime & bicarb soda remedy (above) and also the leaky gut remedy that would be an extra 1/2tspn bicarb soda morning and night all in the one day????

Also should i take the lime & bicarb remedy for a while than change over to the 1/4 tspn bicarb soda & 1/4 tspn potassium citrate after a few weeks????? I was taking the ACV and bicarb soda but became really constipated. Ted lastly can you tell me what the maintenance dose should be that I can take for the rest of my life???? I read that you have taken the bicarb for the last 35years. Do you think that I will ever be able to take the ACV and bicarb again once my constipation is sorted out????

Many thanks
Debbie

P.S. I have purchased some magnesium chloride and wondered what quantity should I take.

I had constipation for years,,but not after I started taking magneisum capsule 400MG twice daily. and after 48 hours if you don't have a good BM, add another 100MG to the AM and PM dose then after 2 days if you think your BM are to much cut down 100MG from each dose, same goes true if you are still not having good complete BM take a litle more Magnesium. As long as your not having dirrhea keep taking the same dose,, after 2 or three months you body will just have two good BM each day. Merryanne

I hope you get your specific questions answered, but I wanted to mention the importance of nutritional support to heal your leaky gut, as well as the approaches that help destroy pathogens that are compromising it and avoiding the foods that aggravate it. Making home-made broths from organic bones from beef or chicken, or from fish (especially good if you include the heads) provide super proteins that are perfect for rebuilding our bodies when we don't have the digestive strength for many other foods. Plus, bone broths are hydrophilic, like the juices from freshly squeezed fruits and veggies. Another healing food is pretty much any version of Bieler's broth, which is pretty easy to find online. Hope you are doing better soon!!

Dont Want to do too much of a "good thing" -in 2005 I, a healthy older woman had family negative situations occur when over worked and weary that brought on very high amounts of stress - resulting in physical and mental (depression) reactions - acute burn out -30 years prior in the early 70's - I had a similar situation -overwork - lots of stress that but that was from raisihg 4 children alone - anxiety where an internal medical Dr prescribed valiumns - which later I became severly addicted to - but I was able to through Prayer - overcome / when this happened in 2005 - I was rather shocked as I had had no stress nor depression for about 25 yearrs - go did get a physical and found no physcial problem as I knew the sysmptons were stress related - but this time -began slowing down -quit smokin - researched vitamins and again through prayer and God's grace all has progressively gotten got better - -probably the stress symptoms has brought on a lot of toxins which need to be cleansed as recently I somehow - got scabies which were horribly painful which tea-tree oil soaks in the bath water has defeated but then right after scabies ended hives came on - which the ACV & AlumFree Baking Soad has almost cleared up - so after reading about all of these incredible remedies on your site - is truly a God sent - dont want to overdo things and take too much -

QUESTION: Should one when they begin the ACV 2 TBSP +1/4 ir 1/2 TSP Alum Free Soda / - 1 TBSP Black Strap Molassas - and then the daily OP - should one discontinue all or some vitamin supplements - we are taking a multivitamin -garlic 1000 - Vitamin B 12 high dose - Omega 3 Fish Oil - Colestrum 25 - acidoplilus

Hi. I just started a couple of remedies that were recommended to me. Yesterday I took super Lysine extract (few drops in water) for fibromylagia as well as receding gums; took 3 mg boron tablet this morning due to fluoride and chlorine in water; also applied clove oil on toenails for fungus issue (2 days). Also note I have switched from a calcium-magnesium liquid to just taking liquid magnesium (the last couple of days) because of concerns of too much calcium in my diet. Could any or a combination of these result in a sudden onset of aching muscles in arms and legs as this feeling started today and has persisted all day.

Hello: I am also from Calgary alberta and your post caught my eye. I want to know if the clove oil works for your toenail fungus. I have had mine for so long. I was a lifeguard through university and my feet were wet constantly. It seemed to never go away no matter what I did! Also did you buy your clove oil at community?

Hi Bill,

Is it alright to take the iodine drops with water and lemon/baking soda at the same time ? I know you want us to take them on empty stomach. Also what about the back formula drink Hylauronic Acid/Sea Salt by Ted, can I take them at the same time also?Thanks

I've been reading this site for days now. I've decided there are a handful of things I would like to try, but don't feel I have a good handle on how some of these things interact with each other. I would like to try Borax and Iodine treatments for Fluoride and Heavy Metal detox as well as maintenance supplementation. In addition, I would also like to try the ACV and H2O2 therapies. From one of Teds posts, I know not to combine the ACV and H2O2. Here are my remaining questions:

Would a reasonable protocol be to simply alternate these therapies every other day?

Can Borax and Iodine be combined with either of these therapies?

Using Teds ACV advice, could I make a daily tonic of ACV, Baking Soda, Iodine and Borax? Perhaps start the day with a shot of H2O2 and drink the tonic throughout the day?

Any advice on combining these would be appreciated.

Hi Mike... For answers to any of your remedy combination questions, just check Ted's list of safe and unsafe combinations here at this link:

https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/remedy-combinations.html#TED

Ted from Bangkok always advises taking ACV in combination with Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking Soda in water because ACV is acidic and has to first be neutralized by your digestion before it is absorbed (Arm and Hammer BS brand is fine to use here). By neutralizing the acid in ACV first before consumption, this helps to preserve the body's bicarbonates, which helps to further alakalize your body as well as to aid and improve digestion.

Here is what Ted says concerning your questions:

"Borax and hydrogen peroxide and any alkalizing remedy can be combined without problems. "

I always take Lugols Iodine on it's own with water because iodine is so reactive. Never combine Lugol's Iodine with Hydrogen Peroxide. The only thing I would combine with iodine is Vitamin C in a water solution as ascorbate, because this makes the Vitamin C even more beneficial.

If there are unsafe combinations, just take the two separate and conflicting remedies at least an hour apart and nowhere near mealtimes. I've been taking alkalizing remedies, including the ones you are thinking of taking, for nearly 5 years now without any problems.

Hi Mike, I have read in several places on the www that Vitamin C *decolorizes* Lugol's Iodine solution, but does not deactivate it. I do not remember the exact chemical change which occurs, but I do know that Bangkok Ted has spelled it out in one of his EC posts.

I add Lugol's to the last few tablespoons of my morning coffee, works great and lessens the chemical taste.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I'm starting to take H2O2 protocol for my herpes, but I can't stand the taste, at the moment I'm drinking it down while sucking on lollies which I know is bad for herpes, but that's the only way for me to hold the drinks down. The few times I didn't do it, I always gag and threw up. Is there something else I can keep in my mouth while drinking it? Is blackstrap molasses and H2O2 alright to be mixed together? Thank you.

I love this website soooo much! I have a question for everyone: Is there a "tonic" that I can take every morning that includes many of the herbs, spices, etc. that are mentioned here? Would any of them interact badly with each other or not works as well? Here is my list of things I want to put in one drink in the morning and possibly before bed. Would this work?

2 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar
1 tsp organic honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp lemon juice

Would you change any of the measurements or add or take anything out? Thanks!

Hi Becky - I make a tonic-like drink that incorporates pretty much all the ingredients you have listed. I copied it from my father. He doesn't use Turmeric or ACV. (No particular reason just preference I guess) but I do.....in addition to 6-8 cloves of garlic, (1) type of dark green leafy veggie (kale, spinach, dandelion, etc) nutmeg, bee pollen, ground flax seed, oats, wheat germ and the list goes on (these are some of his main ingredients).....w/ the exception of the greens and distilled/spring water. He either uses apple cider or plain apple juice as his base.

I say go right ahead and make your tonic! Just be sure to pay attention to how you feel. I know on my really bad days -and as of late- .they've been tough - this little drink brings me SO MUCH relief. Even when my blood pressure was at its highest (156/96) or borderline (135/85) - it helped bring it down to a normal reading (and I mean normal: 106/70!) Sometimes I even substitute it as a meal because it's SO FILLING. To me all the ingredients are of great benefit but I believe the cayenne is exceptional. I love using it because of its synergistic properties. Whatever you use or blend it with (particularly herbs and also garlic) it can greatly enhance the efficiency/performance of the ingredients!

The benefits I've experienced have been:
-Relief from muscle aches and pains
-Normalized BP (garlic and cayenne!)
-Consistent bowels
-Lower cholesterol (did blood work to confirm.wheat germ and oats)
-Tames athlete's feet (garlic!)
-Nail/hair strengthening
-Skin is smoother and softer (flax seed!)
-Decreased cravings for sweets
-Increased immune function
-Stable blood sugar (cinnamon!)
-Increased energy
-Increased pH/alkalinity (garlic, lemon, green leafies)
-And so much more..

This ia a reply to Becky from Cedar Springs. I was thinking of your ingredients list and I also wanted to get the best mix for me, Maybe this might help?

You could try two drinks, one in the morning, and one at night,

Morning...into a glass of tomato juice add, 1tsp turmeric, Pinch of cayenne(or as much as you can handle), ground pepper, 1 tbsp cider vinegar, crushed garlic, and honey if needed.

In the evening before bed, into a cup of heated milk add, 1tbsp honey, and a sprinkle of cinnamon to taste, a little ginger is quite nice too,

Hope this is of some help :)

this is a reply to becky and debbie- you might want to read this https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/turmeric.html and add the tumeric to your milk drink for better absorption. I'm thinking to do the same. Also becky, you definitely should add a tsp of coconut oil to your plan, it works wonders for skin and energy. I also like maca for balance, but am not so keen on the taste! Good luck!


Hydrogen Peroxide, ACV, Coconut Oil

Posted by Songbird (Monterey, Ca) on 03/04/2013

Hello, I am trying new, seemingly beneficial remedies for whole body healing. I have been taking Apple Cider Vinegar daily for maybe six weeks now. Coconut oil for two and just yesterday received my 35% Hydrogen Peroxide. Every site has a little more or less information and I am overwhelmed. Generally topics are designed for one or another remedy not combined.

Am I potentially destroying myself with these? I just read not to take magnesium with H202--which I did yesterday as I had not seen that information until this morning! ... I think I diluted my H202 incorrectly-too much and don't have the math skills to fix it. Do I need to stop all OTC vitamins and minerals; do they get re-introduced or do we find that remedy (if works as hoped) will alleviate need for those. If I am sick, do I withhold additional Vit-C, Zinc and alike?

Does the ACV have a negative impact on my stomach lining when used (not at same time) with H202? and, does the coconut oil soothe the stomach lining to help if out of balance due to the other two?

I so appreciate any guidance and wisdom. I am alone with the family quietly thinking me nuts, but I am truly sick and tired of being sick and tired! Traditional medicine, well, I am guessing you know...

Songbird: The method to use is "start low - go slow". You want to take your minerals prior to meals, H2O2 drops fallowing minerals. ACV (i use tablets) and Coconut Oil w/ meals, vitamins w/ meals. Slowly increase to recommended doses and monitor results. On the H2O2 start w/ 2 drops per day and increase. Take vit-C away from meals and other supplements.

I have lately been seeing the need for antioxidant protection, so try and incorporate some, in time. Selenium, E, and A for starters. Everyone needs extra Omega 3 EFA's like Fish and Flax Oils. Iodine, starting w/ Kelp will help the Thyroid (mood and energy). Speaking of mood and energy (it seems like you need to up those levels) try Tyrosine and St John's wort (this should really help you).

Let us know how you're doing.

Well, this is follow-up to my original post in March. I did not mention that I have a nodule on my LLlung, that was the primary reason for trying the H2O2 remedy. Got the new results from most recent CT scan today. It is GONE!

I am not even done with the regimen. I ended up with the stomach flu and also had to land on same dosage two-days in a row from about 18-drops (could only get to 22-drops before the taste just plain overwhelmed me and headed back down the dosage scale) I was kind of nauseous most mornings after first dose for about an hour.

I have been in steady decline for several years with several things, I honestly felt that I was now in such decline, I was dying a slow death. Lung/bronchial infections, chronic fatigue and pain, a neurological disorder of my vocal cords (I was a semi-prof. Singer with perfect pitch) that, we believe began when I had my cervical surgery and, either a surgical tool rested on my cord/fold or the trache tube damaged it. We will never know. All I do know is that I have been progressively losing my voice and no longer able to sing professionally and every time I do sing, generally, laryngitis pursues me for weeks (months). I have not had a "normal" speaking voice for more than a week in almost two years. My singing voice was how I worshiped my Creator and expressed my heart on so many levels, losing it has been utterly devastating. Anyway... (sorry felt like you needed some kind of background for this next part)... Every time I took the H2O2 I felt a quasi, borderline burning sensation on my throat (not really burning, no other way to describe) immediately after swallowing. The interesting part is that it was not on the whole of my throat, the sensation was on the right side and similar to a puzzle piece shape-non specific. O. K. So, over the course of the month the size and strength of this odd sensation has dissipated, now more of a small spot. I sang Good Friday, rehearsal Sat. , Sun w/o any laryngitis, this week was similar for other gatherings, normally I can only sing every other week and then it is very fragile. Well, I have not gotten laryngitis or even felt weak! I am kind of fearful to post this as the timeline has been rather short to really verify but once I got the CT results combined with my inclination that H2O2 has possibly reduced the inflammation of the abductor fold of my vocal chords I was (am) too excited to not believe there is a connection and it is an answer to prayer.

I am so very thankful for falling into this site. Thank you! OH!!! So, my BP today was 120/70 after having gone up over the last two years to over 140/90 and I think that is thanks to Apple cider vinegar! Now, I will attack what I believe is a non-addressed (labs borderline, symptoms spoke plenty but MD's disregard me) thyroid component. I am so grateful for the input on this site. I am a happy girl and feel better today than I have in over three years. Less than two months since finding what I believe is saving me. Better energy, sleep, general well-being. Blessings on those who started and contribute their wise counsel.


Hydrogen Peroxide, Chinese Herbal Formulas

Posted by J. (Florida) on 05/05/2021

Food-grade hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and Chinese herbal formulas of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM

These questions relate to food-grade hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and Chinese herbal formulas of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

(1) Does anyone have any insights regarding whether taking food-grade hydrogen peroxide—whether via inhalation, ingestion, placement in the ears, spraying in the nose, bathing, topical application, or any other means of delivery—with any of the following Chinese herbal formulas—or with any of the below listed ingredients of those Chinese herbal formulas—would result in the canceling of any beneficial effects of either the hydrogen peroxide or the Chinese herbals?

(2) Does anyone have any insights regarding whether taking food-grade hydrogen peroxide with any of the following Chinese herbal formulas—or with any of the below listed ingredients of those Chinese herbal formulas—is contraindicated due to negative effects as a result of the combinations?

(3) If food-grade hydrogen peroxide and the below Chinese herbal formulas—or any of the below listed ingredients of those Chinese herbal formulas—should be taken separately instead of in combination, does anyone have any insights regarding how many minutes, hours, days, etc. should there be after one takes the hydrogen peroxide before one takes the Chinese herbals?

(4) As with the previous question—but with the sequence reversed—does anyone have any insights regarding how many minutes, hours, days, etc. should there be after one takes the Chinese herbals and before one takes the food-grade hydrogen peroxide?

(I am asking both the third and fourth questions to account for the possibility that the effects of the hydrogen peroxide and each specific Chinese herbal formula occur over different lengths of time.)

Iodine, Coconut Oil, Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda

Posted by Rouxby (Folsom, Louisiana, Usa) on 07/07/2011

Hi, wonderful site, has given me so much help. Am thinking that I have Candida, bladder infections, yeast infections, very uncomfortable stomach, difficult to eat much because of the discomfort, even water seems to bloat me. Stomach feels like ones stomach does when you have been in a fearful situation. Aso the rumbling, growling and feeling of movement and of of course the diarrhea Low grade headaches, brain fog, don't feel up to par most of the time, not the greatest amount of energy.

So have given up sugar, flour and still learning what else I cannot eat

My concern is that I have been using coconut oil and ACV with baking soda, some relief, but I am concerned that I am on an iodine regime and wondering if they should not be taken with one another.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

It seems to me it is a BAD idea to be mixing supplements as a general rule. The stomach has a PH value of about 1. That is fairly acidic, and many different compounds react and combine with each other in unpredictable ways. Mostly the stomach breaks down larger compounds into smaller, absorbable compounds. But many compounds, including many of the different supplements do interact with each other in unpredictable ways....Oscar

I would highly recommend trying some probiotics/prebiotics. A lot of what you mention sounds like at a minimum a Gluten intolerance or at worse Celiacs disease. The first thing you can do is buy some Kefir at the grocery store and start drinking that. If you get results with that, look for some concentrated probiotics -- can typically find them at the upscale grocery stores. They come refrigerated. Look for one that has a large amount of Bifidium.

Another thing you can try is half a full size lime squeezed into a glass, add some water, then baking soda -- this helped my Mom with her indigestion/acid reflux.

I mix Lugol's with Vitamin C -- and take that on an empty stomach. Iodine and Vit C are synergistic. I don't think there would be an issue with mixing in ACV. I prefer to take EVCO right before a meal (once in the morning and once in the evening) and with that I'll take any fat soluble vitamins I may be taking (Vit D, E, etc.)

I've also been wondering about mixing the iodine with my ACV drink. I've recently upped my ACV to 2 T (and I think doing better with that increase) as well as increasing the baking soda to 1/2 tsp (from 1/4).

Unlike many, I don't put honey in my ACV drink (but I do use local raw honey otherwise every day).

In a glass, I add 2 T ACV and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Let it fizz, then add a shot of cranberry juice and fill the rest of the glass almost full with mineral water. I love the taste if I don't add too much of the water, but I always think it might be best if more dilluted.

This morning I added a drop of Atomidine (Edgar Cayce's iodine) to my ACV and baking soda drink, which I think is supposed to be weaker than Lugol's. My system seems to freak when I take the Lugol's, but a drop here and there of the Atomidine seems to be okay. On the day's I don't use the Atomidine drop, I try to have a little bit of kelp in water.

Does anyone know if it's okay to take the ACV, baking soda and Atomidine together? I know the Folk Medicine book says you can use one tsp of ACV with Lugol's and sip with meal, but that's not the same as 2T ACV and 1/2tsp of BS. But I've found some sites on the ACV saying that long-term use of the ACV can bring about iodine deficiency. So it would be nice if we could take them together without issue, or cancelling out any good effects of either.

I just now drank it kinda fast, and stomach started to feel funny. So I took a probiotic tablet (chewed it up a little before swallowing) and that settled my stomach.

Will be eating breakfast in about 30 minutes, and taking Vitamin C, B's, mineral tablet (that I chew before swallowing) and maybe some fulvic acid (just started, take only 1/4 to 1/2 oz. ). I'm never sure if I should take the fulvic acid with or without food. I generally just swallow it down at the beginning of a meal.

If anyone has any input as to this part of my regime, especially my combining the Atomidine and ACV, I'd appreciate feedback very much :)

My beloved friends on earth clinic. I apologize for sounding like a hypocondriac. I have 60 plus doctors to thank for that calling it all kinds of various things. Along time ago, almost two years ago I asked about a disease called sportricosis. Phil from Dearing GA read my post. A social security doctor said I cannot diagnose you but you have a fungus and or parasites. This is causing cahexia. Well I thought it was cancer related, well as I know now cancer is a fungus. I was sick last week, I have osteoarthritis now I got down to 88 pounds but am 100 now because I am fighting this. When I went to the hospital a PA looked at me and said you have sporotricosis and gave me itroconazole pills which I have not gotten yet. I have been treating my open wounds with iodine which was horrible to get because they use it to make illegal drugs. Please help me to get this out of my lungs and bones and off my skin. Earth Clinic is my last hope or I will die. I have been alkalizing with baking soda and I bought the strips to test my urine. I need exact suppliments, in exact form, either pill or liquid. I bought coconut oil and I have garlic pills, and pill form of grape fruit seed extract. 100 mg, I also have niacin but it does not say B3 on it. I asked a pharmacist about PPKI because when military get this they use that and the pharmacist said itraconazole is best to use.

My opinion here is the medical field stinks they know cancer is a fungus. I shared my story with a lawyer friend of mine because I watched a 4 year old die of what doctors can cure. He went to a ronald McDonald house charity meeting and told a few of them what I said and this is what he told me, yes they know it is a fungus but we need money. SICKENING. HIS SISTER-IN-LAW JUST HAD 2 BREASTS REMOVED. So he is apalled and shocked. I also have been doing my blood sugar as I have printed the archive on earth clinic about cancer. The doctors told me to soak in bleach no no no it helps the cancer. I beg of people on here to tell me how to get rid of this and also the new doc I have wants me to keep on vaseline for 10 days and he said he will address the fungus later. Hey this is over 2 years I fought this and it takes me 2 hours in the AM, to even move let alone the scarring. They said self inflicted wounds, no these are ulcers that break open and grow in size, I have packed some in baking soda which closes them with no scars as well as iodine with no scarring. Please someone help me with getting this out of my lungs. Everyone here is better help thean any medical doctors. What a shame little children die because MEN need money. Sincerely, Deanna

Interesting comment that ACV can lower iodine in your body. I hope those with knowledge can weight in. The Edgar Cayce Iodine you mention is the same as Nascent iodine. A site I found states that one drop equals 400 mcg of iodine.

Keep in mind that Lugol's solution is mostly potasium iodine (about 93%) and the balance is iodine. So it is not a true apples to apples comparison.

Deanna, so sorry to hear about your predicament. Re the osteoarthritis, many people on this site have had relief by drinking the Unrefined apple cider vinegar (2tblespns with 8oz water). I also cured by toenail fungus by ingesting the ACV so I presume if it gets rid of fungus in toenails by drinking it, it would also get rid of fungus in the rest of the body.

Also instead of garlic pills you would be better of chopping the garlic into small pieces and swallowing it whole. What I do with garlic is to chop it in a blender and mix with carrot and parsley and add it to sauces after I have cooked them. That way you are getting the raw garlic into you.

If I were you I would also have wheatgrass juice daily fresh if you can get it or in powdered form. You can google Ann Wigmore for the benefits of wheatgrass. You can make your own.

Best of luck.

Hi Deanna,

Regarding your fungus infection I would try two things: Sage tea, the sage oil is excreted from your body via the lungs, and on its way out it kills a lot of infections. The second is a mixture of fungi, if you can get it take Ganoderma lucidum (reishi) with perhaps Phellinus igniaris or linteus, and Trametes versicolor. These will adjust your immune system to recognise and fight foreign cells and cancer cells. I find them locally in the forest (I actually use Ganoderma tsugae when I cn find it), but you can buy them online as tinctures and as dried mushrooms. I take a palmful of each mushroom and dump them into a 1 litre vacuum flask before bed, add hot water then leave it overnight to steep and drink over the course of the next day. The response is dose dependent, ie the more you take the quicker it works within reason. These mushrooms have virtually zero toxicity, but in case you have allergies, try them one at a time in small doses to make sure you are OK with them.

Is it safe to mix iodine with sodium thiosulfate and borax in water?

I have had chronic herpes for over 12 years and have tried so many treatments. Today I take 2 x 200mg Acyclovil everyday. I am now going to try Red Algae. My question is "should I continue with Acyclovil as well?" peace

Bill from San Fernando,

I have learned great deal from all your posts. Can you take Zinc Gluconate powder at the same time with lysine and vitamin c? I read somewhere that zinc interfere with regular antibiotic pills.
