Antibiotics For Acne - A Bad Idea

Antibiotics for acne are not such a good idea. Do they work? Sure... sometimes.

But antibiotics always cause problems, and often cause severe, long term problems. And just because you don't notice the problem today doesn't mean that the antibiotics aren't hurting you now and well into the future.

Don't get me wrong - antibiotics are a blessing in a hospital level emergency when bacteria have entered your blood, bones, or organs. But, for non-hospital level problems like acne, they should rarely be the first choice.

You should consider other alternatives like holistic remedies for acne and natural acne remedies that work for my patients and have been shown to be effective for hundreds of years in China.

What are the problems with antibiotics?

For starters...


A study performed by a team of doctors and nurses showed that the rate of sudden cardiac arrest was twice as high in erythomycin users, and presents an unacceptably high risk. (1)


... can cause nausea, vomitting diarrhea, skin rash, and possibly Sweet's syndrome and intracranial hypertension. (2) It can cause your skin to be more sensitive to light and, if you're pregnant, can weaken your babies teeth and bones (3)

All antibiotics...

will cause yeast infection in 10% of women who take them, and kill off the necessary bacteria living in your digestive tract. And worst of all, antibiotics cause...

Leaky Gut Syndrome

Ever heard of it? I'm estimating that over half the people who come into my clinic have it, so if you've taken a long course of antibiotics for acne - you've probably got it.

Loosely, it's a condition where antibiotics cause your small intestine to become inflamed, allowing toxins and undigested food particles to "leak" from your small intestine into your bloodstream. That causes big-time problems.

It's often the culprit behind:

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Asthma
  • Food allergies
  • Sinus problems
  • Eczema
  • Migraine
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • PMS
  • Colon cancer
  • Fibroids

Antibiotics are the biggest cause of this, followed by anti-inflammatory meds like Ibuprofen. They do it by causing an overgrowth of fungus and yeast in your intestines, as well as by killing the necessary good bacteria that thrives there. (Anti = against, biotic = life… get it?)

So, how can I treat my acne without antibiotics?

Well, for starters, don't think that antibiotics for acne are the only solution available. The recommendations at natural acne remedies and holistic remedies for acne have worked well for most of my acne patients.
