#3467686 Our Food Kills

Posted by John457 on 12 January 2015 - 01:43 PM

After years of being on antibiotics (e.g. Doxycycline, Bactrim, Solodyn, etc.), I am beginning to think that my acne has something to do with leaky gut syndrome. In addition to acne, I deal with chronic fatigue, frequent upset stomach, bloating, dry eye syndrome (exacerbated by LASIK), mental fog, lowgrade depression, and anxiety.


Also, watch the documentary, "A Beautiful Truth" on Netflix. This pretty much changed my life.

#3419213 How I Cleared My Acne After 26 Years. Try It.

I've been juicing for 8 straight days now and although I haven't noticed any real  progress, I am hopeful and committed to sticking with it.


Also, has anyone heard of the "Miracle Drink" AKA "ABC Juice? It's apples, beets, and carrots. I'm sure it's been mentioned somewhere in this thread but apparently it's excellent for acne-prone skin. I'm somewhat suspicious of the high sugar content but still interested in the benefits of this drink.

#3306537 Persistent Cystic Acne, Accutante And Lasik, Don't Know What To Do...

Posted by John457 on 28 November 2012 - 07:05 PM

I don't really know where to begin so I'll just start by saying that I've finally decided to reach out online. I have been dealing with persistent cystic acne and oily/dry combination skin for almost 10 years now. I have tried Doxy, Bactrim, Solodyn, as well as many different topical creams but to no avail.

Right now I feel like I am in a particularly difficult dilemma. Recently, I started a great new job but am fearing a kind of looming professional cliff, a coming storm so-to-speak, as my acne and accompanying social anxiety slowly thwart professional development. I would gladly go on Accutane but last year I had LASIK surgery and ever since this winter I have been dealing with very troublesome dry eyes. Right now I am taking 115 mg of Solodyn, which has helped keep things at bay but by no means has been a cure. I've also just started taking Nicomide, which is supposed to help with acne-related inflammation. I meet with another LASIK doctor next week for a second opinion on my eyes but I really don't know what to do.
