In Topic: Good Things For The Many Factors That Lead To Acne

31 January 2013 - 10:37 PM

I don't know if I posted it here before, but Ted Grossbart's Skin Deephas a bunch of good exercises to help deal with stress as it relates to skin disorders. It has some pretty interesting information as far as how powerful the mind is when it comes to health in general! it's a long read, but worth it to really shift your mindset.

In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Well, that was nice, feeling good for three seconds.


Horrible acne, back again. I just don't understand it. I had constant acne for almost a year. Literally NO breaks between breakouts. So why was I clear all last week? WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT WAS DIFFERENT? All I can think is that I didn't have dairy.


But I was dairy free for SO long and the horrible acne was still there? So what is it? WHAT?


I mean I'm happy I experienced a week of clear skin, but it's almost worse and more frustrating because I don't know what I did right--or how to get back there!



It can be really frustrating :( I'm sorry to hear how it comes and goes for you like that. Reading your posts, I think you've said before that BP works for you? Have you considered trying it again? Remember that this state is only temporary, and things are likely to improve! And EFT! I've read stuff about mindfulness and practiced before, but I think EFT really helped me to understand the idea of learning (and I do mean learning -- it's a process!) of letting go of the emotional aspect of acne as best we can. Stay strong Deja!

In Topic: When Will I See Some Accutane Progress?

Have you asked your derm about it? Could it be the topicals interfering? You're more than halfway through, so I imagine that when you are done and compare pictures, there should be a considerable difference! Good luck Sasch :)

If you have rectal bleeding, perhaps it would be a good idea to see a GI docor, especially if you have so much GI distress! They'd be able to test for more serious conditions like chrons, IBD, celiac, etc, as rectal bleeding is never a good thing!

Bump for a good thread

made a variant of the Creamy Turmeric TeaI was reading about on MDA. I'll have to try it per his measurements, but the cup I had yesterday was made this way ...

  • 3 heaping tablespoons of coconut milk (used Goldenstar brand, BPA free, carried at many chains like Wal Mart and Food 4 less)
  • Teaspoon of turmeric
  • Teaspoon of ginger
  • Teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Teaspoon of honey
  • Coffee mug of peppermint rooibos infusion (1 serving of each)
Steep the infusion of peppermint and rooibos for at least 5 minutes ( I use the adagio microwavable teapot , seriously one of the best things $25 can buy if you like tea and infusions). Add the powdered ingredients into your mug, along with the honey. Pour the tea into the mug. Add the coconut milk at the end and stir, which will bring down the temperature to a warm drink.

The flavors blend surprisingly well. It's nice to have after a meal, really helps with digestion.
