  1. Personally went through a bad purging period with the coconut oil. Start off slow with it, I kills off yeasts and parasites. I can eat as much as I want of it now, apply it on my face every night and it doesn't break me out. If you are getting bad stomach pains, quit teas/coffees/alcohol/chlorinated water, any anything that kills gut heath. Start eating different fermented foods and drink bone broth every day. Hope this helps somebody
  2. Peanut butter vs Almond Butter for acne?

    Can't eat any nut butters without breaking out personally, keep eating them if they don't affect skin or digestion. Stay away from peanut and almond though, especiallly almond as there's studies showing how inflammatory they are, try cashew!
  3. I hope this can help atleast one person. I struggled with constipation for years, found that running every second day helped keep me from being backed up, but I knew that I couldn't keep relying on that forever. Probiotics/fermented foods- Try see if these help you first. If they do, bingo lucky you, if not, all is not lost. Probiotics used to constipate me like crazy, now they don't. Fermented foods broke me out when I first tried them, months later after the below steps they no longer did. Candida killers/antifungals- These usually cause a purging stage for a week or 2, try introduce slowly (coconut oil, apple cider vinegar) Take a spoon/2 of apple cider vinegar before every meal, aids with stimulating stomach acid, also kills off excess candida Don't drink anything 1 hour before meals, during meals, or 1 hour after eating- liquids, including water dilute stomach acid and enzymes and hinder digestion Chew your food properly!! = square jaw, well for me anyways   Colon cleansing should be considered, as you will be killing off lots of yeast, yeast feeds on sugars, carbs and other yeasts. How? In my experience, there came a point when antifungals constipated me, then I realised that I had to get rid of the excess. You can do colon cleanses with magnesium, or by colonic irrigation...something I had to get done due to the severity of my situation . Introduce probiotics again slowly after a month or two. Also, there's no such thing as killing all candida in the body, it has to be brought into balance. It becomes out of balance,along with gut bacteria, due to: Antibiotic usage Tap water, due to chlorine and other chemicals Poor diet, excess sugar,carbs, fruits etc Alcohol  The above steps along with a clean diet, avoiding your food intolerances like gluten/dairy/sugar/grains (one piece of fruit a day maybe OK), should help!  Peace out 
  4. green tea breakout

    I'm pretty sure the green tea I've started drinking for the last 2 days has caused/ contributed to a breakout. How can you tell if it's just a breakout from the caffeine or just a purging stage? Anyone have great success with green tea? Especially when your diet is near perfect lol. I've been having 2 cups a day.
  5. No longer go to derms or doctors, they caused me more problems than being helpful. After my experience with tetralysal, I can't see myself ever trying accutane. Have heard of the LF diet, I'm more or less on the gaps/scd diet now, the only questionable thing I eat is sweet potatoes. Thanks for all the support during such a shiittty time.
  6. Hey, I'm kind of reluctant to use oils, Coconut oil doesn't break me out so I'll stick with it for a while, might try jojoba soon. No I don't use many topicals anymore, my issue is an internal issue. Thanks for the help
  7. Hey thanks for the reply, comforting but sad to know that theres others suffering as badly as myself. Accutane is about the only thing I haven't tried, took Tetracyline and that caused my skin to become 100 times worse, and it caused all of the food intolerances and digestive problems. I usually do introduce things slowly and monitor reactions, they are just 2 supplements I don't think I've tried before. I'd honestly never be sad or depressed if I had a healthy body. Self restraint also isn't an issue, staying off alcohol, tasty foods etc is now the norm. I don't think any product or supplement (bar the probiotics/ fermented foods) has helped my skin, with redness scarring inflammation etc. Wish I was one of those people that could just take a course of accutane and suffer no more.
  8. I don't know where to go from here. I'm down to a handful of foods to eat. Deviate from that and I breakout. Can't eat dairy, gluten, most grains, dairy, raw dairy. Drink lots of bone broth and probiotic foods, my IBS C has improved with these but the rest of the problems remain. I can't build muscle, workouts break me out. Underweight because of the diet, face is sunken in. Most vitamins and minerals (zinc, vitamin d etc) all break me out. Every single spot, cyst, pustule leaves either a scar or red mark. The only products I use on my skin now are coconut oil (had a bad purge stage when using it topically and ingesting it, made me presume candida was the cause), manuka honey as spot/cyst treatment, started using vitamin e oil on scars a few days ago. I'm a young dude, I haven't left the house in three years without tinted moisturiser and concealer, my face is a minefield without them. Also have bad bacne and chest acne. Started taking evening primose yesterday, might go out and get vitamin a today, it never ends..
