In Topic: I'm A Believer! How I'm Curing My Acne Caused By Yeast

* I was on birth control and spironolactone for a year, which I have been off of since late August. This change may be responsible for my recent yeast flare-ups. 



I also discontinued my use of Retin A Micro.

That's great! I was red around the eyes, raccoon-like, from eczema caused mostly by eggs. (Now I'm suspecting also caused by yeast.)

After eliminating eggs, the eczema went away! As did much of my acne.

Exactly. The elimination diet will save you time + $ + agony, and give you solid conclusions...I wish I had known about nutrition and eliminating problematic foods when I was younger.

In Topic: Weaning Off Of Spironolactone

Still going strong! No change in my regimen or diet and no acne as yet to report, except a little oiliness.

I must admit, I'm only taking 50 mg of spironolactone now but because it has become my crutch, the one thing I can depend on from numerous trials in clearing my skin, I'm a bit afraid to go cold turkey. I'm still clinging to the acne safety net provided by spironolactone. 

Let me emphasize again, I FEEL so much better than when I was on birth control and taking 100 mg of spironolactone daily. It all really took a toll on my system. My boyfriend has even noticed a change in my mood. 


Man, the things we have to put ourselves through because mainstream medicine is so backwards
