#3452387 What Is The Best Linoleic Acid Source For Topical Use (Natural Or Product)

Posted by alternativista on Today, 08:58 AM

Safflower oil.  But PUFAs are prone to rancidity. Be sure to get a good, fresh one. And store in fridge. I buy Napa Valley Organics at Whole foods. Put a small amount in a dark bottle for daily use and put the rest in the fridge.  Apply a few drops to wet skin or with we fingers to make it easier to apply lightly.

Well, start by quitting the soft drinks and any other sugary drink..  Today. Most juices are high sugar btw.

 

Water is not horrible. But you can make teas, add a squeeze of lemon, mint sprigs, basil, cucumber slices, ginger, etc. 




#3449097 Organic "green" Diet And Cystic Acne

Posted by alternativista on 26 August 2014 - 12:05 PM

Few doctors know anything about nutrition and have an idiotic belief it has little impact.  Think about it a moment.  How can you possibly believe what and how you eat doesn't affect everything happening in your body? 

 

Anyway, there have been numerous researchers and numerous studies demonstrating the many ways diet and specific nutrients affect the mechanisms involved in acne formation. Including researchers testing specific diets on acne sufferers finding that the diet did improve acne.

 

Thanks, yes, I am going through trial and error I guess... There are so many conflicting views and studies with conflicting conclusions out there... Maybe they're all right and it's just that everybody is different and has different sensitivities. I really don't know anymore... sad.png But I do believe that diet and lifestyle has some connection because there seem to be a lot more acne sufferers than there were in the past. I don't know, maybe I just didn't notice it but it seems to be the case. Even in rural Japan, I mean, it seems to be a lot more common now than I would have thought (for people to have acne).

 

Every one is different and do have different sensitivities.  But no, they are not all right. Anyone who thinks what you do to yourself, especially diet, has no impact on everything to do with your health is wrong. 




#3448657 Am I Even On The Right Track With My Diet?

Posted by alternativista on 23 August 2014 - 04:29 PM

I am unable to go on birth control pills, due to the fact that they make me sick, as well as I don't want to be taking false hormones to get rid of the problem temporarily...  I am keeping a fairly wholesome diet, and I am trying to stay away from high yeast foods and I drink homemade smoothies a lot (just fruit and vegetables, sometimes a scoop of peanut butter or splash of unsweetened almond milk when i want to mix things up)  But is that all I can really do?  I certainly have felt better during this food diet, but my skin hasn't improved much...more it has stabilized...


As natural as possible circadian cycle with good sleep, exercise and stress management are equally important.


#3448138 Fluoroderma

Posted by alternativista on 20 August 2014 - 01:15 PM

Things to consider for those that don't get better with healthy diet (low glycemic/nutrient dense/whole) and lifestyle.

 

Acne or acne -like breakouts caused by Flouride.  http://www.cellulite.../fluoride-acne, http://www.skin-evolutions.co.uk/fluoroderma-could-flouride-be-causing-your-acne/,  http://www.ncbi.nlm....v/pubmed/507887

 

Also, halogenoderma - caused by halogens of which flouride is one. Also iodine & bromide.  Bromides are additives in many processed foods and beverages and are detrimental to your health.  Just another of many reasons you want to eat real food.

 

 

Demodex mites could be another.

#3447965 Story About Acne And Truth Of Overdose Of Vitamins

Posted by alternativista on 19 August 2014 - 01:53 PM

Ba

 

can u tell, how do u know this? specifically that its exactly a bacteria that becomes resistant n stronger? 

 

also idk y wouldnt they get resistant to good diet adjustments just as well?

 

we just have to destroy the bacteria to the point it cant revive anymore then? wht if ur hormones n else r still messed up?

 

where exactly does acne bacteria gets generated from anyway?

 

bacteria that survive antibiotics and your other attempts to kill them do become stronger. And they can make other microbes stronger as well. 

 

However, the bit about probiotics is nonsense. Your body is filled with bacteria and other microbes many of which play vital and even protective roles in how your body functions. We evolved with them and they belong there. Stop trying to kill them.  Bacteria is not where you want to focus your efforts in managing acne.  Internally and externally.




#3447812 Amount To Be Consider Overdose For Vit A And D3

Posted by alternativista on 18 August 2014 - 10:51 AM

That is definitely not too much vitamin D.

 

  I think that's more vitamin A than you should take for very long. I wouldn't do more than about 3,000-4,000 IU daily.  Be sure to include  organ meats, salmon, eggs, cod liver oil, butter, etc in your calculation of how much you are consuming. Hopefully you aren't eating a lot of foritified foods which pretty much = processed foods. If you are, improve your diet.




#3447392 Local Forehead Acne - Help

Posted by alternativista on 15 August 2014 - 07:37 AM

Your acne is minor.  Stop stressing.  Dont do so much to your skin.  It isn't because of dirt.   For exfoliation, try a BHA or the diluted acv mentioned above. A yogurt mask is a nice mild exfoliant as well.  If your skin is oily, blot it away.  

You should eat and sleep well and have fun.  But puberty isn't going to go awa

But. your diet is packed with empty refined carbs, dairy and processed meats all day long.  Eat more real food with these thing called nutrients.  Did you mention anything green?   and drinking orange juice is drinking sugar.  Eat an orange instead.

If that's your idea of cutting out bad foods, I don't want to know what you ate before.

No to the overdosing. 




#3446923 Avocados And Omega 6?

Posted by alternativista on 12 August 2014 - 03:32 PM

Just get some omega 3 and avoid grain oils and limit grains.  

Canned mackerel is cheaper, a better source of omega 3 and a more sustainable fish than tuna btw.  I think it tastes pretty much like tuna.    If you can find it.  They do can them like sardines though, with the bones and skin.  But really, that's a good thing. Eat them.


#3446742 Caveman Regimen

Posted by alternativista on 11 August 2014 - 05:02 PM

You should wash with water.  Not using soaps/cleansers is good. That not letting anything touch your face business is nonsense.
