In Topic: Why did Betaine HCL make my acne worse?

13 June 2011 - 03:00 PM

Betaine has corn and dairy in it, I believe.   Do your other products have those ingredients?  If you are avoiding grains and dairy, then this could be a trigger.

Btw, I found that supplements held me back from healing.  Sure, they were keeping my acne under control, but I could not stop taking them or my skin would break out within days. I was trapped in a vicious cycle.  I finally had to stop taking all the supplements for 2 months and finally my skin has gotten a lot better.  I have a grain intolerance, nightshade intolerance and I think a legume intolerance.   From what I've read, this is very common because a lot of people who clear their acne must stop dairy, grains and legumes.   The trace amounts in the supplements is what caused my acne.

Isn't it interesting that a lot of people on this forum fix their acne by removing dairy,  grains and legumes from their diet?   Not a coincidence as nature never intended humans to be on these foods!

Just what foods did nature 'intend' humans to eat?  

And my skin is clear while eating those foods. My skin cleared when I cut back on the massive amounts of sugary drinks and refined carbs that nature definitely never 'intended' for us to eat.

Well, I've read health problems like asthma, arthritis pain, lupus, MS, Diabetes Type 1, Celiac Disease and not to mention acne all seem to lessen or disappear when grains are removed from the diet.     Humans brought large amounts of grain/legumes into their diet 10,000 years ago (roughly 330 generations ago).   I don't believe we are capable of eating these two foods in the large quantities we do now.   I am assuming humans were designed to eat vegetables, fruit and some protein (eggs, fish, etc.) which is more similar to the diet of chimpanzees.

I notice that a lot of people have trouble with proteins if they have weak stomach acid.   I have also noticed that a lot of people who remove grains from their diet say their stomach acid improves.   Mine certainly did.     At the same time, removing grains usually clears the acne too.

"Some people have speculated that this is due to insulin resistance; once your body has issues with insulin, it'll always have issues with insulin, so you have to regulate steady insulin levels throughout your life-time (similar to a diabetic").

Damn. That´s excactly what I was afraid of. That we have ruined something in our bodies, and we have to stay on the candida/paleo diet for life. Or until they find a way to reverse insulin resistance.

No. You can improve your insulin sensitivity. You can even reverse type 2 diabetes. Did you click on the links I gave you?  All kinds of nutrients help your body manage blood sugar.  Then there's lean muscle, physical activity and sleep which are probably the most important.

My ex-husband developed type 2 diabetes and was given all kinds of drugs at fairly high doses.  He, with his obsessive personality, began following the Body for Life fitness program which involves working out 6 days a week alternating resistance training days with racketball. The only real diet improvement he made was switching from HFCS sweetened sodas to diet.  At his next checkup, his test results were so improved that his dosages were cut to the minimum dose.  If only he could learn to sleep and eat right...

There is a women running a blog who reversed her TYPE 1 DIABETES (considered incurable) when she removed all dairy, grains and legumes from her diet.   Isn't it interesting that a lot of people on this forum fix their acne by removing dairy,  grains and legumes from their diet?   Not a coincidence as nature never intended humans to be on these foods!

Here is the blog:

About 1-2 months.    But it can take several more months (like 6 months) for the sensitivities caused by wheat to go away.
