In Topic: Organic "green" Diet And Cystic Acne

26 August 2014 - 11:39 AM



I will answer your last question.

After I changed my diet, I was very strict the first few months no sugar at all, no dairy and low GI meals. Sleep cycle and stress are very important for me. I started going to bed at 10 and waking up at around 6 am. I would say I had 80-90% improvement in the first 3 months. PLus my digestion improved alot. My acne was very managable and I did not feel like I cant see people without make up. No cystic acne as soon as I discovered my intolerances towards citrus and eggs. I still breakout once in a while if I cheat (conventional dairy- while eating out-being indian a lot of food cooked in my friends and family's homes is made in ghee/butter/yogurt or desserts).


There are times when I am absolutely clear for 2-3 weeks and breakout a little around my period. May be 1 or 2 acne, but it is so much better. I also wax facial hair, as I am brown skinned with dark hair which is visible, and may get few tiny bumps a few days after waxing.  I had acne which was bad enough, that the only derm I saw in the US prescribed me antibiotics and told me if there is no improvement in the next 2 months he would start me on accutane.




It has been around 15 months since I started the holistic path and other than acne I feel this lifestyle has helped me be more energetic and efficient at work, home and people say I look much happier. I still make baby steps towards improving my life daily, like doing yoga, (started in the last few months) and try to eat healthier, by beeing innovative with new recipes. I would say I am clear 95% of the times. The last stretch seems a little difficult but I am learning to deal and not fret about it. Like alternativista told me only we are so critical about our own acne. Noone else notices it as much.


I love bananas and though I dont eat them alone, they are amazing in green smoothies(low GI). And I may add a small potato to a vegetable soup, but make sure you are eating a salad or lots of veggies with it. Give those a shot.:)

But if I take D3 i keep breaking out--I need some help with the right supplement to use. And the break out is cystic which leaves behind scarring.


What's your question smile.png?


If you're 99% clear I don't think you should worry smile.png

In Topic: Miracle Cure For All Diseases?

15 June 2014 - 12:49 AM

In Indian especially in the south we use it as a staple..not the extract but the moringa vegetable..its also called drumsticks.I use it in my lentil dishes every once in a while and it is delicious.I sometimes get it fresh at the Indian store in my city but more often than not get the frozen ones..I see its being touted as a cure all in the farmers market I go to also but really.don't know more about it.

My husband is planning to grow it in our backyard soon so we have them fresh.

I began taking this product called moringa oelifera ( I think I spelled it right).
So far I'm beginning to feel the great effects : lots of energy, better circulation to my hands and feet and my skin is clearing up quickly. 
Apparently, this is a miracle cure plant, used in many countries. 
The only thing I noticed is that when I drink milk, I feel the side-effects of milk are amplified since I began morgina.
I have a really bad rhinitis, I've used every single nasal spray on the market.
I would not have noticed that milk was causing my stuffy nose.
So I'm going to do my best, to not drink milk and use two scoops a day of moringa
I'll post updates each day.

09 June 2014 - 04:23 PM

mostly betacarotene..google carotenosis.

As the title says: i have yellow hands and feet!! Wtf? 

I have no idea what caused it. I've been on a very healthy diet, where i only eat meat, vegetables, fruits and seed. I've also been taking some supplements: magnesium, zinc, d3, C and vitamin A(betacaroteen).

Any idea someone, because i'm clueless..
