I absolutely agree with that. =) As such, I let people do what they want when they are ready to do it. I've had other people that said there was no connection as strongly as those among the boards, and later some of them turned around and asked for help.

Of course, some people won't believe there's a connection if they are still consuming foods that bother their skin, hormones, etc. I eliminated soda, chocolate candy and milk and never noticed a difference. Yet when I eliminated Gluten, I was able to see how those and other foods affected me as well. Unfortunately some of my favorite foods had to go, and even some new foods/ingredients I added to my new diet also had to go, because they caused me problems too.

I just think it's sad that there's people here that speak against things, but don't always bother to back what they say with peer reviewed scientific studies, not to mention an explanation (of some sort). I'm trying to see who's willing to put more effort, knowledge, information etc into things. If newbies listen to them, without hearing the other side, I'm afraid they may get "hurt" because they're doing them a big disservice.

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.
