Good for you! How long have you been off bcp though? My skin was always the clearest a few months after coming off bcp, and then the massive breakouts would happen. Did you get any guidance from a naturopath for this combination of herbs and supplements?


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)

** Find the cause, find the cure **

So glad you found something that worked for you! I was taking saw palmetto and then stopped because I am scared of weight gain. How long did it take you to see results - i.e be completley clear?
