Where To Get Bloodwork For Accutane

Hi all, For anyone who has taken accutane, where did you get your bloodwork done? I am trying to pick health coverage for my job but I am confused on which plan to pick. I am trying to buger how much this will all cost me. Has anyone gone to labcorp or places like that and paid for the bloodwork out of pocket? Trying to gage a worst case scenario.

Chinese Medicine

I feel very confused. It seems whatever I choose is wrong. My recent visit with my naturopath left me feeling more frustrated than ever. She explained that I am eating way to much raw food. I drink smoothies for breakfast with mostly veggies not fruit. She said that according to Chinese medicine, it is very hard for the body to break down raw food. Well I started eating more cooked food and I feel that my acne has gotten way worse. I have had about 10 cysts mostly on my chin since my visit with

Losing Hope On Hollistic Method

Hi all, I recently started breaking out bad. I am thinking it is because of coming off the birth control this would be my 6th month. My naturopath seems to think all symptoms should have been present on my 2nd or 3rd month. I am getting really depressed. Summer is here and I'm afraid to leave my house. I have one cyst on chin and one huge one right by my nose. Not to mention scarring as wll. I will have to schedule an injection. I trying really hard to go this route but it is so difficult

Progress On Natural Route & Stopping Bc

I am still on the same regimen as before (grapeseed extract, tannalbit, probiotics and added canditrol). Other vitamins include ginger, turmeric, vitamin d3, and zinc. I cleanse with sea salt water. I tone with witch hazel. I use tea tree oil on pesky spots. I also use Mario Badescu drying lotion.I use jojoba oil to moisturize. I stopped Yaz in December. As of now it is not too bad. I'm starting to get smaller pesky whiteheads and pimples. I have not gotten as many cysts as before

Naturopath And Lab Results Coming Soon

Well I have my naturopath appointment is today. I will also be receiving my stool sample results. She apparently believes that my acne is from chronic inflammation and an imbalanced gut flora. As a teenager I did not have to much cystic acne. As a child I was put on antibiotics a couple of times for an extended period. Then around the age of 18 I was put on doxycycline then minocycline. Well didn't work. So from my previous post. The large cyst on my chin had gone down. Today is a bit

Depressed....

Today has really hit me hard. I am 25 yrs old. I have had acne since I was 13. I have tried everything except accutane. I remember being 15 and think when I'm 25 I won't have to deal with this anymore. I stopped getting small pimples now I have deep cystic acne that worsened after I had my son who is now 4. I was placed on Yaz birth control. I was clear in 4 months. It got worse before it got better. Well I have decided that I want another child. It seems silly to choose clear skin or a baby but
