Everything is getting better. My hair loss is getting close to pre-Accutane levels. My skin is pretty oily again and more even than ever before.
My body didn't like it when I quit primrose oil at first. Hormonal acne came back with a vengeance, made worse by the fact that I started drinking detox tea and, well, it needed to get all the toxins out. Two weeks of awfulness. Now it's a lot better, better than it was before Accutane. (I have at least two tea bags a day, and I do eat the herbs for maximum potency. I use Triple Leaf.) I have a little bit of bumps because I ate like crap last weekend (my friends were in town and I went for sugar, carbs, and dare I say it-- alcohol!) but I'm fine. And now I know that even one glass of wine makes my stomach hate me. Peachy.
I've been on hyaluronic acid/glucosamine for about a month now. My joints don't ache and my fine lines are disappearing! I take it twice a day, each with 32 oz water. This is important!! It needs a ton of water to work!
My doctor put me on Metformin. I have to keep eating or else I get tired, but now I don't have as much of a problem with carbs. I've been on it about 4 days and today, a lot less shedding than normal! Yay!
I pour a mixture of half apple cider vinegar/half water on dry hair, rinse it, then a final rinse in black tea. I only shampoo my bangs. No more scalp dandruff and excessive shedding. My hair likes a lower pH.
Topically, I use my own "dupe" SK-ii. 1/3 sake, 1/3 aloe vera gel, 1/3 honey. And my skin is so even toned and moisturized!
Still low oxalate. Still avoiding wheat and sugars. Most of what I eat is meat. Still having digestive issues-- trying to eat less.
