Hi! Its been a while since i posted here. I went 2 months without eating any sugar or dairy and my acne stopped completely. I eat some fruit to see how i would react and 2 hours after eating fruit, my forehead would itch like crazy and i would get acne the next day. i know only eat sugar once a week. Its doesn't matter what type of sugar i eat-fruits, cane sugar, carrots, refined sugar, honey, etc.-sugar always break me out in acne.
The supplements i am taking now that are helping somewhat are magnesium, cinnamon. Chromium picolinate and msm have helped me the past too. My supplements are:
New Chapter Every Woman Multivitamin
600 mg of Magnesium Aspartate
200 mg of DIM
1200 mg of cinnamon with every meal
50 mg of zinc
3 capsules of NOW foods female balance( Combination of vitex, dong quai, wild yam root)
I have done saliva hormone testing and I am low in progesterone and testosterone. My naturopath put me on progesterone cream. Ive been on the cream and taking vitex supplements for 4 months and it does not really do anything.
I was wondering if someone here had any knowledge as to how to fix this sugar problem or has ever had a problem like this. It would suck to live life without ever being able to eat a gram of sugar again.
