#3477505 Milk Free Diet Cleared My Cystic Acne, And....

Posted by Melloman on 10 April 2015 - 12:22 AM

Wow.  Yeah,  it took the girl on a video of the youtube channel you sent me, 3 months to heal as well.  And she didn't even have acne.  That's good.  It sucks that you still can't tolerate those foods yet.  It's been a year and a half, huh?  That's disappointing that the wasn't enough time to fully heal.  Hopefully in a couple more years, you'll be more tolerant.  So your diet is vegan, but you're a vegetarian?  I've noticed sleep is a good healer as well.  I looked so much better yesterday morning!  Thanks for posting your diet on my thread.  The last couple of days help put me right back on track thanks to those comments.  For some reason, no one ever goes into detail on their diet, ever online

Thanks, TreatAcne. You caught me at the perfect time.
I had just looked in the mirror and saw another breakout. I got super fustrated and started freaking out.  I was really upset.  I wanted to completely remove grains from my diet. I've been so scared to add in anymore foods, but I realize I should say screw it and at least breakout on something that doesn't break my gut down. Since I'm removing grains, I'll probably try some of your meal ideas. I'll exclude veggies that I think gave me cysts, and just use the mild ones. I mean, my previous trials weren't even that accurate anyway.

I know I'm sensitive to most gut healing foods, but I think I'm just going to start eating them anyway. Hopefully the sensitivities will go away overtime. Fuck suffering. I also have a dietritionist I'm gonna talk to this week. A nice lady gave me her number. Turns out, you can call a grocery store and ask if their dietritionist is there, and ask to speak to them and they might give you free advice and even show you foods around the store!

So there is a thread on here about leaky gut Syndrom.  It lists all the foods and supplements that are best for it.  The only problem is it's all high in histamine, so I can't really eat any of that! 

Foods to avoid for healing leaky gut:

Grains

Legumes

Dairy

Sugars

Unhealthy Oils (corn, vegetable, soybean, cottonseed)

Alcohol and Caffeine

Excessive carbohydrate consumption

Anyone with Autoimmune disease should limit or omit:

Nightshades

Nuts and Seeds

Egg Whites  (yes, that's the white part of the egg)

@StolenDog
I expected to find chemicals created in a lab when I looked it up, but surprisingly, it's not!  Just sucks that most lf it comes from cows and not humans,  I'm still doing more research.  Thanks in advance!

 

update

Some sources list it as the #1 option, and It's looking good!  I think I may try it out after some more research and figuring out which brand I'll choose.  Thanks again!  I knew about leaky gut remedies, but never looked at this one.  I may even search for more!

 

...

Been watchin the hodgetwins bout to eat aome pancakes at ihop, and did some thinkin... If I heal my gut instead of focusing on getting more foods in, I might be able to tolerate foods again!  I saw another girl heal somethin else with some kind of supplement on here, and boom!  Just like that, she could eat again!  mmm...  Can't wait to have me some more pancakes.

 

I will try to add some gut-healing remedies in with this diet and see where things go.  And keep you guys posted!

 

Oh, and Kevin got blueberry!  He even got Keith on it!

 

day 8

 

Okay.  After hours of research, I see everything is telling me to get rid of grains.  That made me feel stupid.  How I could have been so oblivious to grains being damaging to the gut?  I wasn't sure for certain that I had leaky gut, but I did know I had food sensitivities, and grains were one of the few foods I wasn't intolerant to.  Plus, my acne clears while grains remain in the diet.

 

Grains:

I am not intolerant to grains.  However, I am certain I do have gut damage, and excessive amounts of grains break down intestinal walls.  It sucks, but I'mma have to avoid them more while I heal.

 

Now, I guess I just keep adding foods in until I'm less dependent on grains.

Oh, yeah.  So far, I have a few zits, and most of the minimal inflammation from yesterday disappeared.  If there are no cysts tomorrow, then blueberries are in!

day 7
What's better than apples n oats?  Blueberries n oats!  This is my second time ever having blueberries in a meal, and it's currently the best thing I'm eating right now!  Who knew they were so sweet?  If I wasn't intolerant to corn, I'd make pancakes and turn the blueberries into a syrup.  It just sucks that they're so darn expensive.  $7.00 for a hand full is Ludacris.  I ate 3 'bowls' back to back, and went through half my blueberries in one sitting.  It was just soooo gooood...
 
I will monitor and see how I react to them.  And look in other grocery stores for a cheaper price.  You're only supposed to introduce the food for one day on a elimination diet, but I'm not following those rules.  I'm just gonna speculate on my reactions overtime.

 

update

Ate all the blueberries.  They were just so gooood!  Right now, I have no cysts.  After a day of overeating oats and blueberries, I have only gotten a few super small pimples on my right cheek and both temples.  That's a good sign.  As long as no cysts or problem pimples form, it probably just means digestive complications or minimal reaction.




#3477139 Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

Posted by Melloman on 06 April 2015 - 08:11 PM

Hey timati2340, you might feel down sometimes, but just stay optimistic.  Do things that make you happy.  Don't let other people affect your happiness.  If you're lost, that's cool.  That means you can venture and do whatever you want.  Try new things.  Who cares if your mates left and the person you were with left you?  They must not care that much about you if they did.  Just do whatever you want.  Don't let anyone stop you.

 

As for your dysfunction, that's gonna take some healing.  Now that you know accutane wasn't so great, focus on eating healthier and leading a healthy lifestyle.  You may heal over time if you get what you need.  No more chemicals and bad stuff like medicines and gmo's.

day 6

Well, This has cleared most of my acne, except for some on my back right shoulder blade area.  However, my skin has been very frustrated.  My cheeks are red sometimes, and I have 2 inflammatory pimples.  One on my forehead and one near my mouth.  These go down when I stop irritating my system so much.  I think it's caused by overeating the wheat which may be blowing holes in my intestinal walls. 

 

I'm going to add blueberries, and see how I react.  Having them with oats will help cut down on my overeating.
  Oh yeah, and my scabs n wounds are healing pretty quickly. 




#3476916 I No Longer Like People & I Don't Want To

Posted by Melloman on 04 April 2015 - 12:30 AM

Look, I know it's a bad situation.  You should let your haters motivate you to find out why you have acne, and what you need to do to get rid of it.  If you want to be pessimistic, fine.  But you won't ever be able to be happy if you focus only on the hate you receive.  And if you think you will have acne for the rest of your life, fuck it.  Find a way to be happy with acne.  But the fact that some people are stuck with acne for decades helps motivate me to get rid of mine.  I'm not gonna wait around for it to walk out the door.

@TreatAcne

Thanks for your response.  Made my day.  alternativista is really a powerhouse of information.  What test did you take, by the way?  I'm checking out your journey in your topics section.  The Mediator Release Test is said to be the most accurate test out there, and after reading the link you gave me, I saw that grains aren't so great for healing.  So I'm counting on the test to give me more foods to heal on.   




#3476804 How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Posted by Melloman on 03 April 2015 - 12:59 AM

@Acne44

Don't stop being hopeful.  I saw that there were people in their 40's who still had acne, and THAT'S when I made getting rid of it my number 1 priority.  People shouldn't have to suffer their whole lives because of some stupid rash on their face.  We shouldn't have it to begin with.  That's our body telling us "hey!  There is something wrong!"  And we solve it.  I'm gonna be clear and cured before the end of 2016, and that's not because I stopped being hopeful.  It's because I became determined.




#3476795 I Can't Get Over The Bullying I Endured In High School Because Of Acne

Posted by Melloman on 03 April 2015 - 12:16 AM

Is your face completely clear?  If so, how did it clear?

 

And, yeah.  That sucks that you went through that.  Some areas have some messed up people.  I have some awful memories, too.  They aren't from bullying though.  What helps me is to move forward and focus on things that make me happy.  If you think about it all the time, it will get to you.  It's over now,  Don't let it take up anymore of your time.  Take your struggle and get stronger from it. 




#3476254 Feeling Really, Really Low :(

Posted by Melloman on 28 March 2015 - 09:27 PM

when you're stressing, and it rapidly becomes worse, usually it means you're probably putting your skin through too much right now. You should just drop any medications and treatments (including face wash) you are using, calm down, step away, and refocus.  Then I suggest focusing on your diet like rightsmith just mentioned.

 

Diet is the number 1 suspect in the acne epidemic.  All the changes in recent years to food production (the chemicals placed in food) have been a burden on people's digestive systems, causing them to develop food sensitivities, intolerances, and allergies which result in the side effects of acne, bloating, digestional pains, etc.




#3476061 Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

Posted by Melloman on 27 March 2015 - 01:10 AM

Yeah, Gladiatoro.  The medical industry has always been corrupt.  They doctors used to inject certain people with diseases in the previous centuries here in the U.S.  Today, they are trying to force vaccines on everyone, which makes people sick more often than it actually saves anyone.  The one year I got a flu shot was the sickest year of my life.  And Acne created a cease pool of "medicines" that "help" people.  An industry worth billions.




#3475998 Vitamin D Has Cured Me Of Oily Skin And Acne

Posted by Melloman on 26 March 2015 - 02:15 PM

it's honestly better, cheaper, and safer to get your vitamins from food.  It should just be organic food, because non-organic foods often don't have their usual nutrition value, and may make your problems worse anyway.

 

Taking supplements can be dangerous.  They can mess with your bones, joints, and other things if you take high amounts for a long or even short amount of time.




#3475839 Bellafill Or Silicone Injections? You May Be Wrong About Silicone!

Posted by Melloman on 25 March 2015 - 01:49 AM

Yeah, is it liquid silicone?  How bad are your scars?  You would be taking a risk, and if it doesn't come out right, silicone isn't as easy to remove as it is to inject.  And insurance probably won't cover the surgery to correct it.  Also, won't the facial skin start to sag after a couple of years?  Surgeons often tell patients to come back every few years for touch ups on breast implants, so it could be the case for face implants as well.

 

Also, when you're older and your skin shrinks and sags, won't the injections be more noticeable?  I know I'm just answering with a ton more questions, but I guess the best thing to do is more research and to decide if it's REALLY worth the risk.  In the meantime, you could look into some natural alternatives to healing your scars.  There are tons out there that help.  A naturopath can help you with that.

 

Also, can you post some pictures?  It always looks worse to the person who has them than to others.  I've seen great looking people who thought they had horrible scars.  Truth was, I wouldn't have noticed if they didn't pointed it out.  I have some bad scars too if that makes you feel any better.
