In Topic: Stomach Problem, Acne?

02 February 2015 - 03:44 PM

Maybe digestive enzymes before eating will help? I read somewhere else on here recently that betaine HCI+ Pepsin not only helped with stomach problems, but cleared skin.


Yeah, also heard that. I will order som betaine HCI., and see If it could help me mabye.

 

There is definitely a connection. Google Dr. Chris Kresser and acne. Recently, I began taking Swedish Bitters, but it didn't really help me. What is helping I think is taking a daily probiotic alongside lactoferrin, l-glutamine, and milk kefir. I try to avoid dairy but the kefir I buy is 99% lactose free and is from cows not treated with growth hormones.

Are you experiencing any other symptoms? Are there any patterns that you have noticed with your health? Have you ever taken a full course of antibiotics? Keep a journal and record your diet, sleep, etc.


In Topic: Vitamin B5 Hairloss- Cured (Pictures)

Only thing that works for MPB is propecia, RU, rogaine and nizoral. Everything else is a waste of time

 

What about manuka honey? I thought I read something about that helping. Seems like my receding hairline gets worse every year, and I'm only 26. Maybe one day I'll consider a hair transplant.

Personally, after suffering for more than a decade (I'm 26 now), I believe that leaky gut syndrome and/or candida overgrowth are the reasons that I'm still dealing with acne. So I'd say research those topics, but you're still fairly young so hormones could be a factor. Diet is important. Cut out wheat and dairy for a few weeks and see if you notice any improvement. Avoid processed foods. Start eating paleo. Also, take a look at this guy's thread:

I intend to adopt the vitamin and diet protocols that he claimed were helpful to him.


In Topic: Coconut Milk Kefir Did Not Help My Acne

While probiotic foods can be great for improving gut health, they can be problematic if you have bacterial overgrowth. This is a common problem andmany people suffer from it. In this case, fermented food and probiotics can make it worse.

 

You may also have a problem with the kefir bacteria itself, and maybe not the actual coconut.

 

What kind of diet are you currently eating?

 

Why is this, I wonder? Does the introduction of probiotics into one's gut encourage candida die off? I just purchased some kefir today. Hope it doesn't aggravate my skin. I would love to find coconut kefir but I'll have to make a special trip to Whole Foods for that.
