Day 4 - Let Food Be Thy Medicine



Ok, so since I was denied the Accutane by my insurance, I took that as a sign that i shouldn’t go that route. Honestly, the IB and the side effects scare the crap out of me!!!

i just went shopping for a bunch of fruits and veggies to make my green drinks. Turns out to be cheaper or about the same as one of my prescriptions LOL. I'll just think of this as another and taster one!

What i bought:

  • celery
  • bananas
  • pineapple
  • kale
  • parsley
  • melon
  • chia seeds
  • lemon
  • limes
  • cucumber

Not all in one drink LOL. i have a few recipes. if they are tasty I’ll post them! This is not a substitute for breakfast but an added drink in the AM or PM if i forget. i picked these because not only did the recipes sound the easiest and best but because greens (kale, parsley, celery) have anti-inflammatory properties and all of it is great for your skin. I don’t eat horribly normally, but i could improve and go more organic too.

I also go back to the gyno next Friday to discuss my raging PMS as I’ve hit my 30's. Time for a change in birth control i think.

Besides the migraine i had for the past day and a half i'm feeling optimistic. it's only been 3 days. Green drinks cant hurt ya!

Currently: comedone on tip of nose (stupid me picked at it). cheek zit drying up thanks to Tea Tree Oil (TTO). PMS subsiding and feeling better, thanks! other scab/scars fading slowly.


A friend of mine told me to try zinc supplements as they really helped her husband. I'm on accutane but would def give zinc a try if I wasn't already on accutane. She said he takes one tablet a day and if he forgets to take them for a few days that pimples start appearing again...worth a try!! Hope your healthy food s help :)
