Is california olive ranch extra virgin olive oil good for acne 2 tbs per day, ?

Is california olive ranch extra virgin olive oil good for acne 2 tbs per day, ?

Won't help: I see that you're using both benzoyl peroxide and isotretinoin. The former is the best topical remedy for mild acne. The latter is the big guns for severe acne and you can expect it to clear you. The diet / fad / pop / "natural" remedies you'll find on the internet are mostly made up. Stay the course with the Isotretinoin and don't waste time / emotional energy on additional subscientific remedies. ...Read more

We can manage all acne today. You deserve the benefits of 21st century science rather than folk medicine, no matter how glitzy and "natural is better" the ads are. ...Read more

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?

Yes: These are safe though I wouldn't take them all at once. I advise the multivitamin after breakfast, the probiotic at the start of a meal, the fish oil after lunch or dinner, apple cider vinegar in water separate from meals and the psyllium at bedtime. Some multivitamins are far better than others- see https://drrandybaker.com/2012/11/ and https://www.multivitaminguide.org/best-multivitamin.html ...Read more
