LOL, heavens no! My research paper is about 80 pages right now, but that was just a quick summary cool.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):
* 1/18/08 Ultimate Colon Cleanse (30 day program)

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.

No, mine's a bit larger than that.  It was like $30.  Prolly the wisest investment I've made in a long time.

Awesome thanks for the links. Say what other wise investments have you come across, a blender, juicer, rice cooker?

While I've tested negative for gluten intolerance, avoidance still worked for me. Supposedly Type B & Type O Blood types (my dad & me) are supposed to avoid gluten & problematic lectins (for their type) as this increases their chance of getting Insulin Resistance or worse Type II Diabetes.


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?

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

Pete,
According to eat right for your type As can have gluten, yet most people that go on a "hormonal balancing diet" do not know there blood type or homornal situation as I was fortunate enough to find out. While I can say some of us were Type Bs and Os, I do recall there being a few As that also followed the same diet (not quite the one by d'adamo), but otherwise most were unaware. However, someone posted this the other day and there's a type A that said she had to go off of gluten to get better results! http://www.dadamo.co...=1096597730,s=0

Also, I found it interesting too that one food intolerance testing place said I would make a poor candidate and my tests results showed up negative, yet the diet worked. A Gluten-Free diet alone got me 95% clear and the other 4% is due to other misc. items. In terms of other factors at the time I was also taking 4mg of Avandia and 150mg of Spironolactone...however I ceased the avandia several months later and also dropped the spiro temporarily (need it for hirsutism) to see how my skin would do and it just kept improving!!! Of course, in terms of Wheat there's several possibilites why it's avoidance would work as it contains:

Gluten = insulin mimicker
Lectin = insulin mimicker
Less Amylose Starch = more quickly metabolized
Less Fiber (if it's refined) = more quickly metabolized


Now, what I found interesting about my test results was that I do have gluten antibodies, just not enough to be declared a "celiac". The only accurate way to determine if one has a gluten intolerance though is to check for intestinal damage, as the gluten will cause this damage, but I suppose due to either stress, antibiotics, NSAIDS I may have damaged my mucousal layer, thus unknowingly allowed gluten gliaden protein to enter into my blood stream. When it comes to intolerances these proteins either cause damage & enter into your blood stream or they enter through an already damaged mucousal layer and as such, this is the only way one will end up having antibodies to most "invaders" or the normal foods we eat. In that respect, it would explain why normal healthy people may also have a few antibodies to gluten as well. If this is the case, perhaps we are experiencing a milder form of gluten intolerance...in the form of acne(???)

Unfortunately, because they don't test for IR you aren't likely to have a doctor tell you you're diabetic until you hit your 30s or 40s as, prior to this stage you may be slowly transitioning through the first stages. Therefore, yes, I do believe that when it comes to detecting "asymptomatic" insulin resistance syndrome that acne is absolutely a give away. Acanthosis Negricans (velvety dark patches where the skin folds - underarms, knees, knuckles, neck) is supposed to be present first, followed by Hyperandrogenism (acne, hirsutism, alopecia, etc), and then if it prolongs Insulin Resistance will turn into Pre-Diabetes, and then Diabetes Type II. Say check this out:

QUOTE
The Five Stages of Diabetes

Stage 1 - insulin resistance (IR) only
Stage 2 - IR, plus hyperinsulinism (HI)
Stage 3 - IR, HI, plus abnormalities in a GTT
Stage 4 - Type II diabetes, with high insulin levels
Stage 5 - Type II diabetes, with low insulin levels

[Stage 6 - Type I diabetes, with low - no insulin levels (?)]
http://atkins.com/Archive/2001/11/30-765072.html
http://diabetes.nidd...nce/index.htm#5

As you can see from the above chart, if one truly is insulin resistant (25% - 30% of population), a small percent (6%) may turn into a Type II Diabetic eventually. However there are other health problems that are associated with Insulin Resistance and so while a few members around here have found that dietary changes don't work from them, their parents still had Insulin Resistance and are now Diabetics, so they are still at risk for future health problems such as heart disease, obesity, and even cancer. Do any of your family members have such health problems? Also, while an endocrinologist would be your best bet, here's some questionnaires that might help you figure it out:
Do You Have Insulin Resistance?

Blood-Sugar Symptom Questionnaire

bye for now

Apples are really good for you. They aren't high in sugar and they have alot of antioxidants and fiber. I prefer the green or yellow apples as these are less sweet and contain less sugar. Also, if you are looking for antioxidants try drinking a decaf green tea. You can add stevia to it and this really helps with food cravings for me.
