I have been on spiro since march 31, 2010 and it has helped with my oilyness and clogged pores but now i seem to be getting some cystic acne along my jaw line...i started taking d chiro inositol supplements last week (300mg) and i am having the worst breakout of my life..i mean 4 -5 new cysts a day...my diet is good and the only change is the d chiro into my routine. I didnt take it yesterday and i still woke up with 3 new ones this morning. Am i totally screwing up my hormones since the spiro is already an anti androgen?

Hey wicky,

I know this is an old post, but I wanted to see if you continued to take the d chiro inositol. I'm having results with myo inositol, and I wanted to see if DCI might help too. How long did you end up taking it?


Supplements: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate [sometimes]. 


Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
