    potent natural antibiotic

    I wanted to try doxycycline for my IBS, but my practice is closed until next year so I can't get a prescription. I eat a daily raw carrot salad with acv + mct oil + salt, but it hasn't improved my symptoms. Are there any potent natural anitbiotics I could try in the meantime? Thanks in advance.

    Serotonin Antagonists As Treatment For IBD (Chron's UC, Etc)
