Wow, Still Can't Believe It!

Know Hope


I'm due for my period in 6 days... I have not had one break out. This has never happened to me! I'm excited, but also a little freaked out. I mean, could it really be that simple?

1 cinnamon pill before every meal 3 x a day and low glycemic snacks between meals seems to do the trick. I'm still taking my regular supplements, but honestly, they never gave me the instant results cinnamon has given me.

HOWEVER, something did happen that worried me a bit. I accidentally took 2 cinnamon pills with one meal (I forgot I'd already taken one) and I saw weird flashing lights, like I was about to get a horrible migraine. I took aspirin and it eventually went away.

So I obviously need to learn more about cinnamon is doing to my insulin and glucose levels. I don't want to make the same mistake I made with saw palmetto, and take it without fully understanding it. In fact, I told my eye doctor what happened and she recommended I get a blood glucose tester to monitor my levels.

I've always suspected that I have hypoglycemia (it's probably more accurate to say reactive hypoglycemia). So I'm reading up on it, so I can understand.

Based on what I've read in the last few days, I'm convinced that reducing insulin resistance is the key to curing acne! And so many other diseases too.

I am sooooo grateful that low dose accutane didn't work for me. I am also grateful that I never went on spiro. I feel like the nightmare is over, and I can start living my life! It's exciting. When I fully understand everything I'll write my own "I cured my hormonal acne naturally" post. smile.png

Until then, all I can say is YAY! Oh and don't give up people! I thought I just had bad genes. And maybe I am genetically prone to insulin resistance - but I can still fix it. So yeah, never ever, ever give up!cheer.gif
