Food Allergies/intolerances

13 posts in this topic

My food intolerances are really starting to effect my skin again lately, does anybody know how to get rid of intolerances/allergies? I heard liver flushes can get rid of them but also heard that the flushes can cause breakouts :/

Healing the digestive tract might


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!

As in using probiotics? Its hard to find a good brand of them :/ Whenever I do get them I never give them a chance to work, they end up causing constipation or more breakouts.

I agree, my skin doesn't break out into massive bumps or cysts when I something small but if I eat too much of a trigger food while I'm stressed my skin usually acts up the next day. can't even eat a bar without worrying about the consequences!

I know eczema is made worse by food allergies but I think with Acne it's more about how the diet your eating interacts with your hormones rather than a specific food trigger. Diet affects acne in a cumulative way I mean, rather than immediately (like within hours after eating the food).
