In Topic: Chicken breaks me out - What does it mean?

06 February 2014 - 03:40 PM

chicken fed soy based feed have higher tissue concentrations of arachidonic acid (and their eggs too), much higher in fact. Arachidonic Acid is a type of Omega-6 that is more inflammatory than Linoleic Acid, which is the more common Omega-6 fat. I also break out from excessive chicken and excessive egg intake. I can eat it occasionally without a problem though. It would be unwise to consume chicken as your only meat, go with grass fed beef or wild salmon.

In Topic: Cleared My Acne 90%, Here's How!

That's unfortunate :/

How about b5 and l-carnitine, do you think it does still help you?

Good luck anyway!

I completely forgot about b5. There are so many factors that I have since pinpointed so its hard to look far back and know what was or wasnt breaking me out. Maybe I will investigate the B5 & L-Carnitine combo again, but I'm trying to focus on a deeper, root cause.

In Topic: Cleared My Acne 90%, Here's How!

07 December 2013 - 01:03 PM

Hi just wanted to update since it has been so long. I still struggle with acne daily. While eliminating soy and flax has helped, I am not even close to clear. Fiber no longer affects my acne at all. It seemed at one point that I could control most of my acne by supplementing with both a soluble and an insoluble fiber. This is no longer the case. Juicing is also helpful but I cannot afford to do it. I also don't have the time in my day to do it. Also, I no longer own a juicer. Haha. 

In Topic: Autoimmune Paleo & Pufas

07 December 2013 - 01:00 PM

Just wanted to update quickly by saying that eliminating all PUFA's except for those in wild salmon eaten once every 2 days, and eating an autoimmmune paleo diet did not get me clear, or as clear as I was aiming for. I'm still uncertain how each food affects me. I know for certain that kale, broccoli, cabbage, soy, flax, and any vegetable oils will worsen my acne. I believe that eating too much sugar, dairy, and grains can worsen my acne, but the link is not as clear as goitrogens and soy/omega 6's for me. I also don't know at all if legumes, nuts, or nightshades break me out. I definetly feel that my acne is at its best when I eat something close to Autoimmune Paleo emphasizing on an elimination of PUFA's, but it is difficult to have energy when you are low carb. I think that some grain like rice, oats, and quinoa are okay to eat. My quest for clear skin is astronomically frustrating. I feel like I know so much about nutriition and the body but I am so far away from my particular solution. Any advice is helpful even if its on the fringes of science/health. Right now I am currently investigating hypothyroidism by increasing my carb intake and taking a dessicated porcine thyroid supplement multi-dosed throughout the day. I am also supplementing with Retinol or vitamin A from animal sources. There is no soybean oil in my supplement. I am leaning more and more to the fact that diet can't cure my acne. I am speaking only about my particular case. I have tried so many diets with small successes. Anti-candida, paleo, autoimmune paleo, wai, vegetarian, vegan etc... I think there is fundamentally something wrong in my body, like a genetic difference or a chronic condition that results in inflammation. WHAT IS IT!??!

In Topic: Donuts Seem To Be The Culprit

24 November 2013 - 12:40 AM

Yea it is most likely the high oil content which is probably soybean oil, sunflower, safflower, corn, or canola oil. All of these and most other "vegetable" oils are high inflammatory. I would say that most people will see an improvement in their acne if they completley eliminated all hydrogenated oils such as from margarine, "vegetable" oils, nuts, salad dressings, mayonnaise, fried food, donuts, pasta sauce, baked goods. The best fats to eat are probably from wild fish, and then coconut oil, palm oil, organic butter/ghee, olive oil, avocados, animal fats etc.
