Anti-inflammatory foods are naturally going to be almost all the alkaline foods. All fruits and vegetables, with special emphasis on deep dark leafy greens and berries. Sprouted grain, and seed will even be anti-inflammatory to a certain extent. Inflammatory foods are going to be wheat products, dairy, meats, and unsprouted nuts and seeds. It's all about balance though. Grains, meats, and dairy aren't necessarily bad, and can even be beneficial to a degree. A sample meal for me, and even one of my favorite would be something like:   3 or 4 oz of grass fed beef, 1 small baked sweet potato, sauteed spinach w/olive oil, with generous amounts of sea salt.

 

Note: If you are eating a Paleo like diet listen to your bodies desire for salt, as this is a very high potassium diet and can actually dehydrate you from lack of sodium

Diet: Currently strict Paleo, with minor occasional cheating

Face: No washing with any cleansers

Th issue with salt is really about a ratio between sodium and potassium which you get by eating real, whole plant foods. Most people dump a lot of salt on a diet of refined crap that contains little potassium and requires a lot of salt and grease for flavor. instead eat the vast array of flavors in fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices.

This is just one of many examples of how our conventional medical system focuses on the wrong issues and proposes the wrong solutions

Just monitor your blood pressure if you decide to increase your salt intake. Make it sea salt for the minerals.

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!
