#3469240 Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

Posted by MovingOn on 23 January 2015 - 09:16 PM

Well it's a good thing I don't need input to know that the flushing works for me, from experience and success. It may not have worked for you, and I'm sorry to hear. I hope other things do help. you seem to have a wealth of knowledge.

 

To others with food sensitivites, LGlutamine has really helped with my gut.  I find I am less sensitive to gluten in general, but sugar is still highly toxic to me. It seems foolish to continue to attack candida when I know the problem is a compromised  or leaky gut, but at least reducing the count can give my body a break and prevent chronic localized yeast problems.  I've been taking Nystatin to help reduce the candida and reducing/cutting out sugar completely.  It's definitely difficult to cut out sugar completely, but it definitely eradicates joint pain, dry skin, and most issues for me (while taking it).  Don't know if anyone else notices the same connection.  I know this isn't new bringing this up...but for me, everything comes back to the gut. If that's functioning well and supported, I am well. I don't have any chrohn's, ulcerative colitis, etc diagnoses.  Kimchi, kefir, yogurt, and other fermented foods all the way!

 

Also, I do appreciate the research and hypotheses on biochemistry...but, be careful with that stuff too. Studies can easily be misinterpreted by nonscientists...keep in mind many of them are just that, studies and are correlational much of the time. Just as people can poo poo flushing and other more natural remedies, layperson interpretation can be just as dangerous even when it is based on hard science.  Experience in my opinion has been the most helpful constant throughout all of this. I do think there has been some truth to what people have laid out and I do take it seriously, but cautiously.

If liver flushing makes soap as you say it does, where were the "soap stones" the other 19 times?

 

It does work for some people.  I've gotten stones out on every single occasion except one.   But I am not here to convince people anymore.  I just wanted to advocate that it helped me.  And no, I don't believe it was psychological, and that is patronizing to even suggest, since I witnessed physical effects firsthand.  Stop acting like you all know everything.  If it works for me, leave it alone.  I'm not telling everyone to go run and do it.

**Flushes help for many people, including myself. A few people i've talked with have proclaimed it cured them.  I've only done 6 but have seen lasting improvements. Not out of the woods. Will it cure me? I don't know.  Maybe, maybe not. Don't knock it until you try it though.  And don't believe everything you read trying to debunk liver flushes. It doesn't make soap lol Liver flushing for me showed a direct correlation with increased collagen production/smoothing of the skin for weeks following.

Fun fact, I started supplementing with iodine, and nightblindness went away instantaneously. Skin suddenly gets smoother too.  My thyroid checks out fine but it definitely starts boosting it's functioning.  It's implicaiton with A receptors and A? I have no clue. I take it here and there whenever I have a flare up of symptoms.  Which is rare these days now that i've cut out sugar.  It's candida that's been giving me acute symptoms.

Okay, so just to debunk the debunking.  Liver flushing is real.  The stones that come out are not stones in the traditional sense.  What they are all bile-laden balls full of BACTERIA that the body needs to get out.  They are easily softened typically from the malic acid in apple juice (if people are doing that one) or citric acid taken to help with passing them.  I have done the flush 6 times, and each time the size and shape was different. I've passed thousands of stones.  They started off in the first flush super tiny like grains of quinoa, and progressively got larger on the 3rd and 4th.  5th nothing came out...6th, massive stones came out. Each time, felt a huge purging that was physical and mental in nature.  My inflammation subsided for a  few weeks and my collagen production increased.  Smooth skin, hair, epic joint mobiility, no need for yoga.  I believe I am about halfway there. What can happen though is the bacteria release from the bile that's been trapped in those organs is so major it floods the system, so it is best to take breaks.  It is also not helpful to do cleanses in the winter since the body is biologically prepared for rest/hibernation.  Best to do them in the spring.  Cannot emphasie breaks enough.  It is the only thing that has drastically impacted my body in a positive way, including the naltrexone, but who wants to take meds. Just clogs the liver more.  What do you think all of those balls of bacteria trapped in the blood vessels and capillary system in the liver do? Back up the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, lymphs, and you have a really shitty functioning body.  This creates sysytemic inflammation in and of itself. Liver also plays a huge role in digestion.  So if we cannot fix digestion through intensive measures it makes sense to look elsewhere...especially the liver, where accutane is renowned for corrupting. I agree, that the dietary recommendations by Andreas are ridiculous. But it's true about eating TOO many animal fats before the cleanse. I did that once and it was the last time. If it makes certain people feel better symptomatically, and you have not tried it because you too, read some "quackwatch" articles, don't judge others. Hey, I also read some articles that accutane has no long term side effects. Weird.

 

nice man

Everyone thinks I'm a dude! haha I'm just tired of hearing it from people that havn't tried it, have read a few conventional/quackwatch articles, maybe did try it once, thought it was too hard, etc. Let people do their thing. If only people knew the connection between candida and congested livers!

When you can demonstrate appropriate social skills and display any shred of empathy, I'll let you criticize my expertise in psychology.  Until that point, you have nothing to stand on.  You aren't worth my time either way. In fact most people don't even respond to you because I am almost certain they're fatigued from reading your ridiculously unecessary posts. 



Has any wild person tried vitamin A intravenously?? I'm curious as to how the accutainted body would respond.  If we cannot successfully metablize vitamin A, could it be the way in which our body obtains in that can effect it/make it harmful? Porbably a dumb question, but my teachers always said there was no such thing :P



I struggle to understand how some people that I've talked to report getting well after omega 3's and ingesting vitamin A, and the other half of us don't. And you can send me those scientific articles, but, it doesn't really explain the intense variability.

I really hope the suicide thing was not targeted at me as that is absolutely appauling. I will get you banned from this site permanently if it is. that's despicable to even comment on that.



Furthermore, your insecurities and hatred of other people is apparent.  Projected inner self-hatred, placed on others to make yourself feel better.  How about we show compassion for others instead of using your big bad vocabulary to tear people down to size....NO ONE else on here is looking for a competition.  We are all just looking for answers. BE NICE. PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

I never said Saw Palmetto worked lol, Just that I was going to try it,  At that time i didn't know much about anti-androgens, now I live by that. It made my skin drier and yah my hair stopped shedding as much, but i think it just aggravated things more like any anti-androgen.  I've reduced all of my supplements to 225 billion probiotic, collagen in powder form, and LDN for joint pain.  Don't think I could be doing any better.  Oh yah, still gluten free as my tolerance to that has not gone away.  i did one liver flush which got a lot of "Stones' out, still am skeptical but i did feel better for about a week and change afterwards, but it slowly wore off.  It did temporarily help with my food intolerances which was weird. I'm doing another this week.  The most important thing to do is to stay hydrated, and there really is not much of a need for epsom salts apparently during but i'm too afraid to try it without.  Again, I'm not recommending anyone go and do this, I'm just letting you all know what I;m doing. I'll report back. If I die,. it was for the CAUSE. jk.  I've done it before and it was painless. Until next time. ;)

you can ingest it or use it topically from my knowledge. I've heard of people being cured after several months to a year of consistent treatment.  Good cannabis oil has a lower THC content and higher CBD content, which has all the healing properties. I think it's highly dependent on how severe your symptoms are and there is no guarantee that it will work, but I have noticed benefits from vaping in the past on overall health.  Do be careful though since marijuana is an antiandrogen or acts like an antiandrogen, so it can also aggravate symptoms of dryness as well (in my experience. It's mostly just confusing to me how it can be healing and bad for some at the same time. But seeing as it does directly effect hormones, I think that that is the key.

Reported my sides to Rxisk website! Will be doing the others tomorrow.  Thanks for attending the protest. I still think it had a solid impact and I hope to go to one in the near future. Ya know, once I have money and vacation days...

 

Anyone have any experience with Armour Thyroid?? I don't believe it's doing crap...perhaps maybe even causing mroe harm than good....LDN is still working like a charm...

Hey guys. Just need details on the US protest.  I would like to make time to be there since it is majorly important.



I've always wondered about stem cells treatment for hair growth.  This seems to incorporate both nutirnet dense blood and stem cells to regrow hair:

 

I'm going to contact them soon if I don't have any luck elsewhere...interesting that I also get my naltrexone from Boca Raton, good stuff happening down there.

Hi all,

 

Quick update.  I'm still taking LDN at 4.5mg (4 months now)  and have shown great improvements in physical functioning.  regular bowel movements (also take super doses of probiotics), minimal bloating, immense energy, little to no joint pain, no pressure in head, moisture in eyes, moisture in mouth.  still have dry skin overall, and continued hair thinning but the shedding has gone down considerably.  I work out either daily or every other day, have resumed guitar and singing, and have my life back now.  I'm still looking for the cure, but as it still stands, LDN has saved my life.  I still encourage others to look into it.  Just because LDN works to manage inflammation and symptoms, doesn't mean you can have a shit diet.  I juice on a near daily basis as well, but I do occasionally splurge on some pizza or cookies.  My main diet is pretty fresh and healthy. Only other things I am taking are magnesium glycinate, vitamin C ester, and D3. :)

 

hip hip hooray!!

 

Anyone have luck with the RSO please message me privately! :) I'd like to hear from people who try it for the tane induced dry skin.  As it is i still drink tons of water and can't seem to stop. D3 and garlic help regulate it but it still persists. I'm sure it's also a result of my bodies reduced ability to hold water due to decreased HA too. I don't care about the science anymore. Just want answers. 

 

Thanks! we will beat this! some have. keep that in mind.

vaping is the way to go. that is all. if you cannot get the RSO. I've kind of given up on the venture for right now do to financial issues, but it will manage symptoms appropriately.  I wouldn't overdo it though because it can mess with hormones in higher doses.
