water: about 3/4 of a gallon
diet: nope, started out good but then I caved and had a lot of red meat and gluten... it's hard not having red meat when the only available meat is red.. eggs get really sickening. but I think I'm going to be able to have chicken available now..
morning regimen: most of it
evening regimen: no
sleep: no, had like 8 hours
exercise: a little
According to the book I'm really not supposed to be eating eggs due to them being allergenic for some people. I believe that the reason that people are allergic to eggs is because vaccines are grown in chicken eggs, and the body identifies the vaccines as bad, and therefore the eggs also. I haven't had any vaccinations though, so I think I should be good, plus I've never had a bad reaction from them.
I've got to stick to this better...
I would recommend looking into digestive enzymes and probiotics to heal your gut. This guy's post is informative. http://www.acne.org/...g-the-gut-diet/
Dr. Art Ayers has done a lot of research on gut flora, and he says that many food "intolerances" are actually the result of insufficient gut flora. I have been taking massive probiotics and enzymes and experimented a bit. I have not been able to eat dairy for years without bloating and the runs; after a week on probiotics, I was able to eat a whole 2 cups of organic fermented greek yogurt without any side effects!
We're supposed to have close to a trillion bacteria in our gut to help us digest food. Many of us don't have enough of the different strains of bacteria because of processed diets that don't include fermented foods. You can also see his blog at coolinginflammation.blogspot.com
Interesting, I'll give it a read. However I think acne is a warning sign that something's wrong, not necessarily the gut, and yours seems less intensive. The book I read recommended some prebiotics and probiotics. I still don't really understand the difference.
After reading through the post this sounds much more appealing and easy than the diet/regimen recommended in this Acne No More book. It has this morning and evening like face washing/masks/aloe vera, and while this stuff is all healthy... I don't believe that we should have to apply all sorts of stuff to our faces.
I live on an organic farm and have access to, well, organic meat, vegetables and fruit (and raw milk) Plus we have our own well water, which tastes good. I have access to Kombucha through my sister, who is intolerant to gluten and into raw foods, makes it all the time.
By the way I don't actually have any allergies that I know of. I was intolerant to dairy as a baby, but I can take it fine now. I've only had one shot ever, it was for a really bad ear infection.
Oh and according to the test given in the book, I have a bad candida infection. Spitting saliva into a cup of water, in the morning before consuming anything, and if it sinks you have a bad candida infection, if it grows roots but mainly stays on top, you have a moderate-mild candida infection, and if it floats you have none. mine sank.
