Question About Milk

6 posts in this topic

I've had very clear skin now for the past few months. For some reason I started to drink milk again. Maybe because it taste good, or I'm just trying to get cheap protein in me smile.png Anyway my face has literally exploded just within the past four days. Its all red and I have a ton of nasty cysts and white heads all along my jawline and mouth. I started with the milk about two weeks ago, so for the first week everything was fine which led me to believe it was now good with me or something.

My questions are. Do you think this is related to milk? Is it usually a long delay like this. I eat allot of cheese (pizza) and ice cream regularly and that never does anything. The only real thing i changed was the milk addition.

I went to the doc this morning because I look like a monster and its painful to do my job with shit all over my face. It hurts to open my mouth. I begged for a prednisone pack. Got one. Hopefully this will help. I'm going to stay away from milk.

Are there more hormones in milk alone than say yogurt, ice cream, cheese?....

Thanks

Many of the problematic hormones and other substances are reduced by fermentation.


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!

Dairy consumption has been linked to acne (not to mention ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, and other diseases) in many studies. It's the immense amount of hormones and insulin-like substances contained in milk. After all the purpose of milk is to get calves to put on weight extremely quickly.

"We found a positive association between intake of milk and acne."

"We found a positive association between intake of skim milk and acne. This finding suggests that skim milk contains hormonal constituents, or factors that influence endogenous hormones, in sufficient quantities to have biological effects in consumers."

"restriction of milk consumption or generation of less insulinotropic milk will have an enormous impact on the prevention of epidemic western diseases like obesity, diabetes mellitus, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and acne."

Yogurt, kefir and cheese are fermented dairy products.
