Name: Joris
Start Date: 4 jan 2010
Dosage History and method:
Symbiotics Plus powder 21oz , empty stomach:
Day 1: 2x3g a day
Results History:
To early to tell
Other Factors:
None
Acne Description:
Moderate
2-6zits/cysts a day. Jawline, around mouth, between ears and eyes and down, forehad (getting rolling scars there for a few months now) and blackheads on nose
I dont agree with what I posted in the nutrition section anymore. I just think its not worth it. People worrying about food and acne all day in order to improve their life somehow while they are actually just digging a bigger hole for themselfs. The only reason to eat right should be to feel a bit better. Because the chances you will be able to reduce your acne in such an amount that its worth the effort instead of just trying a new topical is astronomicly low.

Basically get a low effort topical like differin or something more harsh if that doesnt work and just start living the life you want to live!
Retired!

I know it's only been about a month for me, but I feel inclined to update, since there have been changes in my diet/dosage.

Name: Pimple Popper MD
Start Date: Dec 11 09
Dosage History and method: Symbiotic Colostrum + capsules, 9 per day (4320 mg)
Results History: Still too soon to tell, but I think I'm finally on the right track!
Other Factors: 1 zinc tablet and 1 fish oil tablet every day
I also started the "no-wash" regimen a few days before I started taking the Colostrum, so my face had a major initial breakout that was probably effected by both the Colostrum "die-off" and discontinuing Benzoyl Peroxide. Also, I've slowly increased the colostrum dosage to the full recommended dosage.
Acne Description: I was breaking out consistently throughout the month I've been taking Colostrum. I've come to the conclusion that my problem may be candida-related. Since I've been on the anti-candida diet, I've had no new major pimples form (just a few small ones, but I've only been avoiding wheat and sugar for about 5 days, so these little zits could be the result of the foods I ate before) Throughout these five days, I've really been hit hard with die-off symptoms. Mostly fatigue, bone-tiredness, carb/sugar cravings, brain fog, headaches, joint aches, etc. I've been expecting another die-off breakout, but so far it's just been a few tiny pimples that heal within a day or two. It's still probably too early to tell, but I believe this vital diet change is a landmark in my progress. It will be interesting to see how this works out after more time has gone by.. Die candida, DIE!

thehalfdollarman, added you. Thanks.

MD, I hope you understand that it is too early, and I don't want to introduce that type of bias. If it works we will know anyways with some time. I prefer to add your results once there are no more changes.

Yeah, I understand. I just wanted to take note of the changes in diet and dose I've made since my introductory post. Perhaps my part in this thread has become invalid since I don't believe the colostrum will have any effect if I don't simultaneously alter my diet.

I will make sure to add that aspect when the time comes. I think the same as you.

I would prefer to note why you want to be removed rather than deleting you from the list. Why do you want to be removed?

Just added you, could you describe your anti-candida diet (so I can make note of it).
