Eating lots of Fish - good idea?

15 posts in this topic

Hi all

I've had acne for over 10 years now, and its started to get worse again,

am currently on minocycline and have just started trying the regimen.

I'm also thinknig about trying a diet change.

I've read through the boards a bit and people have mentioned the benefits of eating fish (fish oils etc)

If i was to greatly increase my fish intake, is that likely to produce good results?

Thanks

Yes! Eat plenty of fish, especially salmon.

:: what would you buy? ::

1 - the ugly colored and graved with bird shit all over it, but Porsche/Lamborgini shaped car what could take you like a jet plane?

2 - or the amazing static red colored shiny, with the green glow under the car but is shaped like a lame cube where old folks drive in?

[image removed by sigbot--see board rules] the same goes for acne and the girls who choose the guy's [image removed by sigbot--see board rules]

ps: I don't know cars, only girls... but you got the point.

Most fish will probably do more harm than good because it's full of toxins. It has to be wild and organic to actually be healthy.

omega-6 can be converted into prostaglandine E1 and prostaglandine E2

PgE1 take care their will be no inflamation in the skin

PgE2 can improve inflaming in the skin

PgE2 is moastly found in... here we go again: dairy :hand:

try to search the web about suplements or food that have a high rate of PgE1.

:mrgreen:

People get way too much Omega 6 iun their diet. The ratio of 3 6 9 should be 2:1:1 but it is more like 1:30:1. YOu don't need to suppliment with 6 or even 9, it's 3 that were lacking(unless the 6 is GLA). Most acne people cant convert the short chains into long chains so taking lots of plant based oils like flax may not help.

Therefore take fish oils which already have the long chains present in EPA nd DHA. Make sure it's the liquid form and keep it refrigerated(don't use udo's choice).

The root of acne is hormonal and in order to regulate hormones you need prostaglandins and guess what, the only thing that produces thes are EFA's.

However most fish oils are fragile and our body destroys them before they are utilized to take them with protectors like letchithin(SP?) granules and virgin coconut oil(not the crap you find at supermarkets which is loaded with dirty saturated fats. YOu can also take E vitamin and eat the oils with yogurt as it absorbs great with a sulphur rich protein.

Do this and I bet the vast magority of you will clear up. That and don't get your blood spiked all the time and make sure your skin has a slightly acidic mantle on it.

YOu can also take liver protectors to help such as milk thistle and burdock root.

Gorton's Grilled Salmon Fillets are really good. They have regular and lemon butter versions. They're wild Alaskan and easy to fix. 15-20 minutes in the oven. If you cook them in the microwave, it stinks, but in the oven it smells like steak. Anyway, they're in the frozen section (yellow box) and a lot easier than buying and preparing fresh or pulling the skin off the canned version. Just thought I'd share my discovery...
