My name is Savannah Coots, I am newly married, living in San Diego, livin that marine wife life!
So, this is my first time posting here, so bear with me!
My acne has been bad since middle school, and in grade 11 I went on accutane, then went on it again 6 months later due to the fact my skin broke out a day later after my 1st course! (NOT COOL) okay, just breath, inhale, exhale. Ahhhh better! haha so anyways, after accutane failed me a 2nd time , I decided to change my diet completely, and went strict paleo, now I am paleo auto-immune diet... which is easy for me
While paleo has worked, especially in the beginning (not so much now) I knew that I had to get to the bottom of my acne, eczema, kp, food allergies (so many!) and why I NEVER FEEL GOOD ANYMORE!
Before accutane, I could eat any food I wanted without stomach issues, well not anymore! So I am wondering if accutane kind of ruined my gut? (If you are planning on taking accutane, please don't let me scare you off, i'm just warning you of the possible things that could happen, but again, EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT)
Anyway! I also am nearing my menstural which starts tomorrow (tmi i'm sorry) and my face is just covered in inflamed clogged pores, and I KNOW people have it so much worse, in fact, before diet change I had it BAD! But stil, who doesn't want to have consistantly clear beautiful skin?!?!
Hahah random dancing bananas for the win!
My question, to sum up all of the maddness, is what should I do for my auto-immune issues, I drink bone broth(yummy!) I tried fermented cod liver oil, but broke out, was an emotional wreck, and had 3 periods in 1 month! Again NOT COOL! haha
and I have tried DIM, just started today actually, so we shall see how that goes....
As far as fruit is concerned, I stay away from citrus, and anything high on the GI such as watermelon, mango, dried fruit, etc.
PLEASE HELP ME ?! =)
