Topics I've Started

Fiber & Hormones/ Pcos Connection

30 June 2015 - 09:20 AM

Today I tried out Slim Fruits for the first time (no, I'm not endorsing them yet...still undecided!), and the main ingredient is dietary fiber. This reminded me of some interesting articles I read about fiber's connection to hormonal balance. People have been asking me for healthy ways of reducing estrogens and/or androgens, and I think the fiber- hormones connection is important, especially if you are against drugs & even supplements.

I might post an update on slim fruits in a few weeks if I continue to take them. I bought them from a pharmacy, and the ingredients seem to be more or less ok. For me it seemed like an easy way to get more fiber in my diet. I also eat tortilla wraps from time to time that are fortified with extra fiber.

Check out some interesting articles here, and remember to SLOWLY add fiber into your diet. Don't go overboard and don't expect results overnight. This is a lifestyle change, not a magic remedy.


& this old thread here:


& feel free to add your own links.

I also wanted to mention that during my last ovarian scan, the doctors confirmed that the cysts on my ovaries have reduced greatly. One doctor even thinks that my PCOS is gone. I don't think PCOS can ever disappear, but its symptoms can go into remission. I see this as proof of my consistent lifestyle & dietary changes, and the results were small & gradual but definite. You don't need pills to regulate your hormones, you just need a lot of patience, research, and the right tools to understand how your body works.

Double Notifications

29 June 2015 - 07:30 AM


Whenever I have a new private message (and sometimes for other notifications), I get duplicate notifications about it. I already get too many notifications as it is, is there a way to fix this glitch so that I'm only notified once per update? :)

Friend List Issue...

15 June 2015 - 09:36 AM

I just noticed that my friends list is shorter than the number of people I have added/ have added me as a friend. I keep seeing the same number of friends' photos regardless of how many people add me. How can I see the full list?

How To Edit Topic Titles?

03 June 2015 - 12:50 PM

I mispelled a word in a new topic I started here http://www.acne.org/...odermabrasionm/
Could someone delete the "m" at the end? It would be great if we could edit titles ourselves after a topic gets posted, especially if the topic gets updated/ resolved (I know there's a button for that, but still), if photos get added, etc.

Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion

03 June 2015 - 12:47 PM

There are old posts on microderm, but I want to start a new topic because obviously microderm tools have changed over the years.

What do you think about diamond tip microderm for scarring and/or acne? I have been getting it regularly now almost every month, and it seems to have evened out my complexion in terms of scarring. I do not want to do anything more extreme than this (like lasers or dermarolling), but I don't like wasting money either. I would love to get feedback from long term/ short term users.
