In Topic: Toxic Body And Liver Is The Root Cause Of Acne

02 December 2014 - 08:20 AM

I did the candida protocol and plenty of detoxes. I am not convinced. The evidence just isn't there, even in anecdotes. Better digestion will improve acne, but you don't need to do all these fancy things for that.

I took the chocolate one by spoon. Made my skin nice, but no change in acne, maybe made it worse, probably because of the chocolate.

In Topic: Whole Grains? Yay Or Nay?

Better than refined grains, worse than most other things. No reason to eat them as part of a healthy diet, but okay as a treat unless you are sensitive to the proteins in them.

In Topic: Acne Suddenly Coming Back 3 1/2 Months After Accutane- Could Diet Be The Reason?

Paleo diet. Avoid dairy, grains, added sugar, legumes (peanuts included), eat meat, vegetables, fruits in moderation, and only consume whole or minimally processed foods.

 
This paleo diet bullshit didn't work for me.
 
The reason it came back is because you have terrible genetics, not because of your diet.
 
Something didn't work for you, so therefore it must not work for anyone, eh? A paleo-esque diet massively reduced my inflammation. It didn't solve the problem entirely, but it helped. In combination with accutane, I can see it being a powerful treatment.
 
People who suffer from acne may have genetic or epigenetic predispositions, but that doesn't mean we can't do anything about it. You attitude is defeatist and your opinion here doesn't have a lot of value. The original poster was asking for tips on diet.
 
I don't like people pushing fad diets that don't work. You even said that it didn't solve the problem. It probably only worked as a placebo for you at most.
 

Placebo? It reduced my cystic acne to pinhead bumps. That is not placebo. Just because it didn't cure my acne, doesn't mean it was useless. Reduced acne was one of many health benefits I enjoyed by abandoning my standard american diet.

Also, it isn't a fad diet. Paleo-like diets have been around for decades. Moreover, if it works, it doesn't matter.

Again, I'm not saying that this diet will cure anyone's acne. I'm saying that it helped me in a very noticeable way. What you're saying is that the diet will not help anyone, which is a much bolder statement than mine, especially considering that you have zero evidence for anything you've said. You're just denying assertions without providing any sort of reasoning.

In Topic: Accutane And Obsession

Almost certainly accutane-related. Not only is the drug neurotoxic (used in higher doses to treat brain tumors among others), but it also messes with neurotransmitter methylation. Less methylation = different behavior, in your case, amplified obsessions. Fortunately these side effects are temporary, and once the drug is discontinued methylation resumes as normal. Neuron regrowth has also been documented in extreme cases where the individual suffered from quite severe central neuronal atrophy. So I would not worry.

 

Eat plenty of protein, especially eggs, dairy, and liver, and get lots of fat and cholesterol for your brain.
