sorry to hear that, i know i wouldn't believe this advice if someone said it to me but i do genuinely think it's true... if someone is going to behave like that they are not worth being with. Someone could have flawless skin but if their personality rivals a wooden spoon it's pointless! Your skin looks great to me, i would love to be at that stage but obviously that's all relative to the individual

#3407479 Things Only People With Acne Will Understand!

the most frustrating thing for me is when loved ones or friends moan like it's the end of the world when they have a tiny pimple and you're stood there with 30 of the things! it's like a 10 stone woman complaining she is fat infront of a 20 stone woman !!

#3402837 I Think I Figured Out What Causes Acne....

Posted by brandylad on 22 December 2013 - 11:26 AM

well done! good to see someone has persevered and found something that has changed their lives! It's definitely something worth investigating.. many people will not think a magnesium/calcium supplement would have any positive effect on their skin




#3402611 How Else Can I Improve My Diet? Running Out Of Ideas

Posted by brandylad on 21 December 2013 - 06:58 AM

You should eat whatever you want, diet doesn't cause acne, and contrary to what people on here say, there is no proof to the diet/acne relationships. If you read and followed every post on here about diet/holistic treatments, you would have to live in a bubble, never touch your skin, eat nothing at all, and never have an orgasm. You get acne because of shit genetics, not diet. Another myth I am tired of reading about is that if you over wash your skin, it will produce more sebum. These board are unfortunately filled with misinformation. Try to eat healthy anyways, because diet can cause other health problems, but you don't have to be so anal about it, especially since it will not affect your acne.

#3401616 Candida Diet

Posted by brandylad on 17 December 2013 - 01:05 PM

when i first introduced probiotics and coconut oil to my candida diet i was very ill for around 5 days, my skin broke out badly and i had flu like symptoms.. nausia, stomach cramps, too hot one minute shivering the next etc




#3401562 How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Posted by brandylad on 17 December 2013 - 09:22 AM

sorry to hear of your struggles moonlitriver, seeing as though you have tried to antibiotic route have you checked out the diet & hollistic health forum yet? in my opinion if the antibiotics aren't working for you then it could be an internal problem relating to your diet/hormones... hopefully you can find something relevant over there... you are not alone though, millions of us are going through this battle too! chin up eusa_pray.gif




#3400837 10 Years Of Acne, Working On Solution

Posted by brandylad on 14 December 2013 - 06:50 AM

i am currently in the process of doing this too! I have been on an anti candida diet for roughly 3 months ( candida is overgrowth of bad bacteria typically caused by excessive use of antibiotics, you could similarly have this as i had the oral tablets you have taken too ) and for the past 3 weeks i have been adding supplements to treat a leaky gut. Both candida and leaky gut can intertwine and luckily the diets are fairly similar..

 

I am basically gluten, dairy ( bar live yoghurt ), yeast and sugar free. My skin has actually gotten worse during this period but that is to be expected as bacteria dying off has to leave the body. However, i have actually started to sleep for a solid 6 hours during the night which is very very rare for me, bowel movements have increased to everyday instead of once every 3 or 4 days. I am an active gym goer and there is actually a protein made by iso 100 which has the lactose removed from it so you could always look into that ( very pricey though ).

 

In terms of timescale i really have no idea, like i said it's been 3 months on basically the same diet as you and i've seen no improvement in my skin, i have basically used antibiotics for my skin for 9 years so obviously the probiotics are going to take a long time to restore balance



In terms of supplements i am currently taking a multivitamin, cod liver oil, digestive enzymes, zinc, probiotic 20 billion strain and recently in the past 3 weeks i have introduced glutamine and milk thistle

i'm currently in the process of trying to cure a leaky gut and candida! most of my sugar cravings have subsided which makes me believe i am firmly on the right track to creating internal balance. eusa_pray.gif

what is your diet like? have you looked at symptoms of leaky gut and or candida before? you MAY notice symptoms of those coincide with symptoms you are suffering. I am of the belief acne is caused by an internal imbalance so finding that imbalance finds the cure! good luck and i hope you find a speedy resolution

#3395108 Candida Diet

Posted by brandylad on 16 November 2013 - 09:28 AM

thanks for your responses.. i bought some enzymes this morning so will give those a try! could be possible i have a leaky gut in addition to the candida.. One thing i have definitely noticed in addition to the reduction in the pet allergies is that of my cravings for sugar products diminishing. My diet through my teens was just sugar sugar sugar so i am not surprised in the slightest it is taking so long to clear.
