LOL, yeah I've got one of those things too, although for some reason it's sits in the garage, alone & cold with nothing but stuff piled on top to keep it warm..oh well.

Ooh, I know!!  I bought a box of Splenda.  Does that count?  Or do you think, perhaps, it's just Equal in disguise?  shock.gif

These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):

* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)

* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002

* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)

* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):

* Strengthen/Repair GI - Immune health

Research:

* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).

* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

damn sweetjade, you blow me away with your posts....you know your stuff  shock.gif

Is there any research you know of that says gluten / lectin is bad for Type A blood types  as well? 

Also, i found it interesting when you said you tested negative for gluten intolerance but avoided gluten anyway which helped to clear you up.  Is there another ingredient in gluten containing products that you avoided you think can attribute to your success?  Or maybe changes in stresslevel/lifestyle activities simultaneously helped out too? 

Also, lets say hypothetically I have Insulin Resistance (this being insulinemia correct?) or Type II Diabetes ...but am unaware of it  (i doubt it since i'm in my 20's and never had a doctor tell me i'm diabetic).  Is it possible acne could be the only noticable symptom i'd have as a result, with no further health complications?

For now Im eating three apples a day and that seems to keep the whiteheads at bay, I still get a couple blackheads..

I guess the apple's antioxidants features are helping me out
