Yeah, life's been one big party for me lately  eusa_boohoo.gif  

If you want to alkalise your body I think you CAN drink with meals, as long as it are alkalising drinks, such as mineral water, green tea, orange juice (the real thing, most brands have added sugars, 100% pure is a little bit more expensive) etc. I usually drink things like that with my meals. For some reason I couldn't open the link you posted, so I dont know the theory behind that.

Actually, the lemon thing I am doing works alkalizing, so maybe you can do it at the same time. Hehehe, I dont want to sound to pushy, but I found something that works, and I want other people to feel as good as I do right now (*violin playing in background*)

How are you alkalizing? Do you eat "bad foods" or also "natural" like me? I found it impossible to alkalise eating junk, I dont know why that is. At work one guy thinks I have anorexia because I never eat candy and things like that anymore. Also this afternoon I was in the supermarket buying lemons (three cases) and the cashier asked me "What the hell are you going to do with all those lemons ?!" I mumbled something like "I put it in my tea" and fled the scene (I didnt want to go in depth in the lemon science LOL as there was a huge line behind me  biggrin.gif  ) Ah, the adventures of a lemonjunkie  cool.gif

Keep me updated with your progress.

First of all, I want to say hi to everybody on this message board. I am new as a member, but I have visited the boards frequently the past year as a guest. By the way, sorry if my english isn't perfect, I'm from Europe.

Now this is my story. I've had acne since the age of twelve. I'm now twenty seven, so that's fifteen years of pimples. My acne has always been quit severe. I've done a couple of Accutane cycles (in Europe it's called Roaccutane), but my acne didn't totally dissapear on the meds, and it came back full strength within two weeks of ending the Accutane.

Untill I got really, really fed up with the acne and started searching the web for information. I must say I found the most valiable information on message boards like these (in fact, I think Acne.org is the best). I think I found a solution for some people. The key I think is the whole alkaline-acidic diet thing. But most people don't diet correctly. Here's what I do. I got me 100% clear, however it may take a few days/weeks/months to work. First, I noticed my skin became less oily, then I noticed less new zits popping up, and finally NO new zits forming. It also ridded me of my ugly red marks, although that took a little longer.

My diet:

Of course the basics: NO SUGAR, only natural foods: whole grain bread, vegetables, fruits, patotoes, etc. But this is nothing new, I guess. I DO eat some meat/fish at dinner, but in moderation. I dont know about diary products, I never eat them anyway. But key is NO SUGAR, ALL NATURAL (and NO ALCOHOL, smoking and coffee in moderation)

Now in order to make my body SUPERALKALINE I use the following trick:

In the morning, BEFORE BREAKFAST, I squeeze a whole lemon and mix it with water (ratio 1:1 - nice taste  biggrin.gif   ) After drinking that, I wait half an hour to 45 minutes before I eat breakfast (during that time I shower, read the papers, whatever) so it's digested purely. I do the same thing before going to bed at night(again on an empty stomach - several hours after dinner). I read some members on this board drink it with meals, but you just will not get the same results (I tried). Somehow, it is better absorbed by the body, I dont know how. If you do this, you will experience dry, cracked lips after a few days (like on Accutane), and skin becoming less oily. Keep up and you will get results. You need to use TWO lemons a day (in the beginning I even used three)

Also I try to eat as much alkaline foods as possible during the day: cucumber, raisins, oranges etc. I never eat processed foods (it causes hormone spikes ===> acne). If I get a craving for sugar, I eat fruits, fruits, fruits.

I wanted to be sure this works before I posted, so I tried it for some time, but during that time I didn't get a single pimple. Before doing this I had severe acne. Please try it, if it works tell other people about it. And no, I am not spamming lemons   biggrin.gif
