I just started taking physillium husk and triphala to see if they help with my constipation. I took it yesterday and so far, nothing. I feel like I need to go, but then I don't haha. What's your take on eating peppers for acne? Do you think they trigger it? Did your skin just completely clear up overnight, or were you having still minor breakouts when you first started this? Do you feel like weightlifting would trigger acne? Sorry, i have so many questions. I used to weightlift 4 days a week, to gain weight, when my skin was worse than this not too long ago, so i wonder if theres a connection with that as well..thank you so much for putting your time in to respond!
Sorry for the late response!
I recommend taking grounded flaxseed seed, 2-4 tbsp daily, for extra fiber in your diet. Also eating lots of veggies is essential to give your stool mass to be able to pass through the intestines. Nightshade foods, such as peppers, can cause digestive symptoms for some people. Although if you can tolerate peppers, they're a great source of some phytonutrients and other vitamins and trace minerals.
No, my skin did not completely clear up over night. Curing acne takes a bit of detective work: figuring out what foods are optimal for your body - what you can tolerate and what you can't. Once your body is not being bombarded with toxins and bad food and it's getting all the vitamins, trace minerals, essential fatty acids, probiotics, it will almost seem like a miracle as your acne starts to clear within weeks. Your skin cells are replaced at a turn rate of 2 weeks, so if you start incorporating the right strategy, you will be amazed that your skin is no longer developing acne lesions. Weight lifting should not have any relationship in causing acne, in fact weight lifting is very good for you, as long as you have the right diet. It may seem like a coincidence that many weight lifters have acne, but that's because many of them are gorging on thousands of calories, most often bad calories, which takes a toll on the immune system and various cell function.
Hope that helps and feel free to ask any more questions - I'll try to answer best I can
