"I was able to clear my skin by getting tests done and finding out that I have food sensitivities!" - more details?

Yeah, basically I got a prick test at an asthma and allergy (clinic?) place.  They tested 40 foods on me to see which ones I reacted to.  Note that this is different from an allergy and intolerance test.  I got an allergy test with no results.

 

I focused on finding out what was wrong with my body.  That's the natural cure route.  If you want to do the same, I suggest seeing a naturopath.  They are a HUGE help, and usually can get you tested to up to 400 foods if you want.  They can also test for gut health and all kinds of other things if food isn't the problem.

i thought of going to a certain lab that can do a food intolerance test to many foods, i will probally do it soon since im hopeless cuz i tried everything else, but im also skeptical.

 

but u're saying the test u did isnt a food intolerance test, then what exactly is it? please give me some details about the test and the particular cause of your acne that was found in the test, so i can atleast make something of this.

In Topic: Vitamin D Has Cured Me Of Oily Skin And Acne

14 October 2014 - 07:08 PM

Hey there guys, I've been taking vitamin d3 (dry form, daily dosage of 2000 IU) for about a week now, and all I've experienced so far are new breakouts located around the mouth and chin areas (where I seldom break out usually). I've heard so many success stories about vitamin d3 that I thought I would give it a try, but it seems to have negative effects on my skin. I can't expose my skin to the sun because it turns red and irritated (I have hypersensitive and oily skin). Did any of you guys experience a "initial breakout" while on vitamin d3 pills during the first week or did your acne clear up right away? I'm thinking I should discontinue my intake of vitamin d3 if it still gives me new breakouts by the end of week 2. Also, my acne is not genetic (nobody in my family or even extended family has had or has acne) nor is it hormonal (I've had my testosterone and estrogen levels checked three times last year). I don't know what's causing my acne which I've had for 9 years since age 10. I thought I would outgrow it, but people keep telling me I won't, so I'm losing hope. Thank you for your replies, I appreciate

i didnt experience an "initial breakout", but i also didnt experience any change in my skin from taking vitamin d3.. so its not working for everyone.

its like alot of things where u hear about only the success stories, but u dont know for what % of the people who tried this it worked.


In Topic: Acne Scars Are Making Me Depressed

Scars aren't as bad as acne - no pain, no huge red bumps, no whiteheads, I could go on.
Yes scars are not ideal, but a large majority of people have them for whatever reasons. The people who make cruel comments have nothing else going on in their lives so they choose to make others upset with them. Even if your scarring is more moderate or severe, it shows how far you've come dealing with your acne, try and think positively. If anything, focus on one day going to see a derm yourself when you have the ability to, or maybe making a compromise with your parents about paying them back for scar treatments later on. I hope you find peace with your scars for now.

 

 

>>Please don't be depressed they are just scars be happy you are cured embrace everyday and live it to the fullest cause you never know when it may com

wow...just scars? its SCARS ON THE FACE. scars are way worse than acne. it stay forever on ur face no matter what

u do.

i think its better then having acne and im just saying dont let the scars ruin your life if you can help it cause you made it thru acne...chill

it pissed me off because u probally dont have any significant scarring, so u cant possibly understand. its like some1 who never had acne told u he understand whats its like having acne.. now u get it?

 

also, u shouldn't assume that just because i state that scars are worse (they are FOR LIFE) than acne, that i dont have active acne. and i am sure any1 with enough scarring would agree with me that scars are worse.
