After trying different holistic practioners (3 different practioners for 3 months a piece, 1 for a month after which he said he could not help me), diet changes (paleo/dairy-gluten free), exercise, stress reduction, supplements, etc, I am wondering if maybe my body is just too messed up to be helped or maybe i need to think more in the 3-6-9-12 month time frame. I am so discouraged at this point. I have followed the wonderful advice here and when i needed more support and direction, i have used reputable and highly recommended holistic people. I would have thought that at this point, something would give. Acne is the most visible issue I have (and it bothers me the most as it is the most visible) but in the scheme of things, not the most serious (my pre diabetes and emotional health would take that top honor). What is my next step - I am so tired of trying to figure it out on my own and trying everything that seems to work for everyone except for me. Not looking for a lecture on the fact that i shouldn't complain and so forth - just looking for useful feedback.
I am thinking of finding a naturopath that does holistic testing but is willing to do blood test and other medical screenings (covered by insurance) in making diagnosis and giving it 3- 6 months versus 1-3.
What say you all?
The reason i want to go with a professional is that i have other things besides acne going on and i need ongoing direction and support as my body is doing its own thing.
