In Topic: Ginger For Hypopigmented Scars

13 October 2014 - 07:25 AM

Ancient thread I know, anybody had any success with this?

 

I have a lot of white hypopigmented dots on my chest, I just started using ginger today, I'm going to rub it on 3 times per day.

 

Quite annoying as I basically stay totally clear now, and after suffering from acne for the past 18 years, my chest was totally clear until last year when I tried the paleo diet, which eventually gave me really nasty painful spots all over my chest, REALLY painful spots. I figured out that coconut was 100% directly responsible, I was eating a lot of coconut every day for months, when I stopped, so did the acne. 

 

It took a long time to pinpoint coconut as the cause because I'm sure you have al read about how great coconut is for the skin right?

 

Well it turns my skin into a battle field, and on researching, I found out that p.acne bacteria feed on medium chain triglycerides, the fat that is abundant in coconut.

 

Anyway, anybody any success with raw ginger juice?

 

I'm going to update this thread so any future searching can find a record of someone trying it.  



Here's what I'm dealing with, I'll post a first followup pic in about a month.

Or anybody any other tips on how to deal with these white scars? 


In Topic: Does Hot/humid Weather Break Your Skin Out?

28 April 2014 - 01:57 PM

I found this topic after searching in google 'warm weather helps acne'.

 

Pretty much every result talked about warm weather causing more acne, oddly, for me, it's the opposite.

 

I've lived in a cold rainy northern climate all my life, and had acne all my life, but every time I go away to somewhere warm, my skin gives me no trouble at all, it basically completely clears up.

 

I've just moved to Thailand and from day 1 my skin started to look and feel better. Acne that was beginning to form and 'bubble up' during the 20 hour journey to get here totally cleared away within 24 hours of arriving in Thailand.

The goitrogens in kale can inhibit thyroid function but you probably shouldn't really worry about it unless you already have a thyroid issue.

 

Personally though, I would cycle kale with non-goitrogenic green like romaine or other lettuce, chard, or dandelion greens. 


In Topic: Vitamin B5 Hair Loss

Is there any updates guys I've been losing hair for over 2 years now due to b5

 

Are you certain the b5 caused it? Maybe it would have happened anyway?


In Topic: Vitamin B5 Hairloss- Cured (Pictures)

So after all this, would you guys suggest NOT taking b5?

 

I took it before for 4 months, my hair got dry but no excess shedding was noticed.

 

My skin didn't completely clear, but that was because I was eating coconut oil and coconut milk every single day the entire time I was taking it, and I know with 100% certainty that coconut oil/fat makes me break out like crazy.

 

When I took b5 last time, the areas of my back that usually got acne cleared, but my chest and different areas of my back got it instead, I think that was the b5 trying to work and the coconut fat making acne appear elsewhere.

 

I've just started taking b5 again, as I said it gave me dry hair last time but no shedding, but I don't know if I want to continue if I'll be bald in a few years from it.

 

Thoughts?
