Voll/ Eav Allergy Testing - How Reliable?

23 May 2015 - 05:09 AM

I was wondering if anyone has tried out the Voll/ EAV electroacupuncture method of allergy testing. I tried something electromagnetic a few years ago, but the results were not the same as the ones I had done at an allergist's office. Has anyone tried Voll? Here's a bit more information on it:


From Scar To Keloid?

22 May 2015 - 04:14 AM

Hi everyone,

I had a robotic ovarian procedure a month ago, and now I'm left with 3 scars (one on bellybutton, the other 2 on the sides of my stomach). I'm putting scar cream that the doctor prescribed (ScarFix, 2x per day). The doctor said I have to avoid sun exposure so that the scars don't become keloid....

I took this photo today (sorry, it's a bit blurry). Do you think my scar is turning into keloid? What can I do to promote healthy scar healing and avoid keloids? The scars on my bellybutton are healing fine, but the ones on the sides of my stomach are more pronounced.

I can take clearer photos if needed.

Get An Ultrasound If You Have Hormonal Issues!

19 May 2015 - 02:53 PM

Hi ladies,

Most of you know my story by now, and I'm happy to say that my search for curing my acne naturally has led me to discover underlying health issues far more serious than my acne. This is good news because I was able to address those issues and save me the trouble of dealing with them in more severe forms in the future.

I want to urge you all, before you take your doctor's advice and go on birth control, to do an ovarian/ uterine ultrasound (preferably through vaginal insertion for more accuracy) to first of all check whether a) you have PCOS and/or ovarian cysts b) endometriosis and/or fibroids or another condition c) tumors or other types of cysts.

I'm saying this because, after 2 years of doctors trying to put me on birth control and other sh*t, I did an ultrasound to see how my ovarian cysts were doing, and the doctors found a dermoid cyst/ teratoma in one of my ovaries that had to be removed. One of the doctors said it could have been making my hormonal issues worse. There isn't a lot of medical research on how tumors (this one being non-benign) can affect hormones, but I found this research paper that is quite promising. A woman with PCOS and acne
"reported that her menstrual irregularities and acne had completely resolved despite not being treated for PCOS" 6 months after removing an ovarian teratoma.Multisystem Manifestations of Benign Ovarian Teratomas, http://www.jabfm.org...t/27/3/421.full

So, make sure you KNOW exactly what your hormonal issues are, and what the alternative options are, before you jump on the birth control bandwagon.

Royal Jelly - Anyone Tried This?

15 October 2014 - 01:50 PM

Has anyone tried royal jelly long term? I started taking it last week once & sometimes twice a day on an empty stomach, and so far I noticed that my sinuses are better. Also, I had fewer allergic reactions to things like dust. It's supposed to boost the immune system, and has no side effects (unless you are allergic to bee products).

Has anyone tried royal jelly?

Types And Causes Of Acne

12 October 2014 - 12:32 PM

I'm curious to hear what type of acne you had that was cured with (or responded to)  diet and/or supplements.

I have a theory that different forms of acne respond to different treatments, and are caused by different things. This might not apply to every type of acne, like cystic for instance, but I believe that the rash-like type of acne accompanied by rosacea/ redness is a definite sign of a compromised immune system (and the consequent allergies that may come with that). 

I was reading this article , and the acne photos seem to fit what I get whenever I eat foods that I'm intolerant to. I also had adrenal fatigue, so that could be why my acne was similar (in addition to the cysts & nodules I had).  It's not the same as hormonal acne, it's a different form, almost like a bumpy rash or eczema. It would be interesting to see if certain types of acne like the one below correspond to different conditions.
