No Probiotics For Months--Totally Clear!

33 posts in this topic

I'll ask my friend about the study. Most of my information I get through her. She would have no reason to lie to me. She used to be very anti-grain but what she's seen in clinical studies changed her mind. I'm not very good at understanding all the clinical speak that's why I usually go through her.

edit-- Okay I talked to her. She's going to find it for me. Apparently the same study found that wheat is good for people who aren't sensitive too, so there goes all my theories. I've pretty much already accepted that I was wrong about everything anyway, lol.

did u hear anything from ur friend on wheat and grains?

Still waiting. She got really sick recently so I don't wanna bug her about it. I'm annoyed though because I want to know more about it as well. Maybe I'll do some research when I have the time. (which is never pretty much now that I'm self employed lol)


Current Skin-Care Regimen (A work in progress):

Morning:

Gentle wash with DKR cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)

Skin 79 Korean BB Cream (excellent stuff)

Evening:

Gentle Wash with DKR Cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil

You might consider looking into testing your reaction some of these other tested histamine rich foods: alcohol and long-ripened or fermented (and therefore histamine-rich) food, such as aged cheese, cured meat, and yeast products; histamine-rich food, such as bananas, spinach or tomatoes; or histamine liberators, such as citrus fruit, should be avoided.

I know several of those are a no brainer, but a few (spinach, tomatoes) were a surprise to me. I've been researching foods that cause histamine reactions to limit the enormous restrictions I had recently set on my diet. Like you, I'm trying to open my diet as not to trigger past disordered eating behaviors. I would prefer to know the exact foods that cause negative physical responses, as opposed to cutting entire food groups out of my diet. Hell, I have gone weeks where I ate only apples and almonds out of fear that I would breakout. I can't afford to slip down that slippery disordered eating slope anymore. Being aware of the exact foods that are the problem has freed up my dietary allowances, and my mind!

Thank you for being open about the issue of your eating disorder. It opens this topic up to show there needs to be a boundary on the lengths we will go to clear our skin. No one should needlessly go down the path of disordered eating as the means to end the problem of acne; having suffered through both, we know the path of an eating disorder creates far more anguish and destruction. It is a delicate balance.

everything affects everyone differently. Probiotics can actually help the body and the gut, as well as skin too.

Brilliant annabill. I avoid nightshades and leafy greens. Yeah I know it sounds crazy...no spinach, kale or chard. They all cause problmes as well as citrus, dairy, sugar. I have an autoimmune condition that causes some craaaaazy skin problems, not just acne.
