I heard that wheat gluten is a very bad trigger for breakouts....every bread at the supermarket has it.....where can we find the gluten free bread and does it make a difference?

I just read a magazine called "Living Without". It has tons of articles and adds for gluten free recipes and foods. I purchased it at Wild Oats health food store, but you can also got to www.livingwithout.com. Good luck!

It is possible, but so far my fav. gluten free bread products contain milk. LOL, if you can tolerate milk you'll want to check out:

http://www.charlottesbakery.com (great breads, and no transfats)
http://www.kinnikinnick.com (great donuts, & cookies, but uses trans fats)

Venders Listing:

Avoids some or most Allergenic/Intolerance ingredients

Rates Foods:

There are dozens upon dozens of manufacturers and bakeries so you will have to sift through all the lists. However, lots of stores or brands offer sampler packages which is a great way to try a variety of GF foods out. I would say more than not I've been very pleased with the "substitutes", but the breads are the hardest to mimic. I've found that the next best thing to those above companies was baking my own bread fresh. Of course you can always buy Gluten Free Bread mixes and prepare your own using a milk substitute if milk is a problem for you. =)

Take Care
These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):
* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)
* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002
* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)
* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):
* 1/18/08 Ultimate Colon Cleanse (30 day program)

* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).
* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

Your best bet is to go to the local whole foods store, and go through their breads. You're more likely to find one. Mine sells a yeast-free, wheat-free, lower gluten (at least some of the varieties are low gluten and wheat free) flat bread called "mountain bread". Yours will likely have something.

Otherwise, they (including my supermarket) always have a bunch of gluten-free bread mixes. Bread's not much trouble to make if you have a bread machine.
99.5% Clear (skin gets 'congested' PMS week, but no actual breakouts)
Fragrance-Free Baby Wipes + a few drops Rimmel Makeup Remover solution
3/4 AHA Toner* & 1/4 Glycerin (cotton pad) -- good toner, moisturizer, and makeup base (use less glycerin if not under makeup)
Occasional Treatments (2-3x/week): Exfoliating bp wash* in shower, 2.5% bp lotion* at night
CoverGirl TruBlend Powder Foundation
* = Klear Action Kit (Pro-Activ knockoff)
Gluten-free diet (for non-acne reasons, but it seems to have cleared my acne)
