I've been reading about dairy free diets today. I'm already vegetarian and never considered going vegan. I don't drink milk and rarely eat eggs, but I LOVE cheese. I read that goat cheese might be okay because goats are not given as many hormones. Opinions?

If you tolerate "casein", cheese is ok!
If you do not tolerate "lactose", old/hard chesse or lactose-free cheese is ok!

I eat goat cheese just fine.

Don't know if it's hormones or otherwise, but I too love cheese.

It's individual and something you will have to try for yourself. But there are many ways dairy affects acne, not just hormones given to cows. There's the hormones the milk naturally has which are designed to stimulate rapid growth of baby animals and include hormones directly involved in acne.

And there's the lactose which many people can't fully digest, the casein many people are allergic to, that it's insulinemic, etc.

But yes, goat milk tends to be less problematic than cow.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
