I took L-cysteine and B5 for a while, it didn't do anything, and since quitting my skin's only gotten better. I take no supplements now, which seems to be the best option.
Yeah, no supplements is definitely the cheapest and safest option, but my skin is too bad to just rely on diet right now. What's your diet like? How long did it take you to get clear?
I didn't realize you were experiencing other side effects. With that said, I'm glad you stopped taking it. I don't think that you should keep taking it because the symptoms you describe don't really sound like a detox thing. Milk thistle allergies are not that common, but there are people who have trouble with it especially if you have problems with kiwis and the other plants related to milk thistle family such as daisies, and ragweed.
I would avoid if I were you.
I totally understand about the makeup thing, but I have not worn makeup (foundation) in about a year. I said screw it.... lol
Yes, the side effects were scary....I was up all night with heart palpitations, chills, fever...you name it! And then I went to work without any sleep and was a zombie for the rest of the day. Too bad, I wanted to give the milk thistle a shot. I had a similar reaction when I tried taurine, so I had to return it.
No foundation for a year?? wow, you are brave! I basically ran out of mineral makeup, that's why I piled on the foundation today but it looked horribly cakey. My face should carry a sign lol.
milk thistle helped me a lot :/ as i think you already know. even though i dont take it anymore
but it seems that maybe its not a good choice for you?
i wouldnt really recommend vitex it has the same warnings that licorice does.
or the one i saw did, at least.
herbs that lower testosterone and are safe, that ive found, are: black cohosh, saw palmetto, and turmeric
i just added the black cohosh and turmeric in order to cut down on saw palmetto after every meal
now its a diverse variety and all of them have benefits.
sorry that you had an initial breakout youre still beautiful
yeah, I remember you saying you were taking milk thistle....how long did you take it for? I got so scared after the reaction I got last night...maybe because I took 2 pills instead of 1? Each pill contains 100mg of standardized extract and 350mg of powder. So, 2x that...= too much?
Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.
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... (although I have been slacking lately)
