VINEGAR against insulin resistance?? Hmm...

This is interesting to me as I was just reading about apple cider vinegar being used as a weight-loss aid, apparently for its appetite-suppression and "detoxifying" effects. I'm always skeptical when someone says "detoxifying" but hey...

"So you are no longer disputing the fact that those that are Insulin Resistant may also be more likely to have hyperandrogenism, and thus acne?"

No -- I'm simply saying no one has explained to me what any of the big words you used are and I don't care enough to look it up; I think looking for facts shouldn't be a competition as much as a search for truth and you seem to just be trying to win an argument over find something new out. And you never really acknowledged that sugar consumption doesn't cause diabetes.

PS: Yes-- detoxifying is a BIG red flag... mostly because we are not toxic to begin with.

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.

? Alright.

No -- it's more of me saying, "I don't know what this is about, care to explain," and you say, "It's very very complicated."

Hypocrite
