Seeing A Medical Herbalist Tomorrow!

I've been searching and searching for one around my area (and I live in one of the bigger cities in the U.K) and I finally found a guy who seems to be exactly what I am looking for. He has a legit website which claims he has worked with people with stubborn problems such as acne and p.c.o.s before and he seemed sound when I was e-mailing him. So fingers crossed. I am paying for this obv. but I am serious about this and my private medical consultations for roaccutane the second time around were three times as expensive. I'm getting back on track but I just want direction and advice from someone experienced.

I've now been on Vitex for around 7 weeks and I have added liquid extract in rather than just the capsule form. So I am gradually cutting down on the amount of capsules I take per day and introducing liquid extract in...I have also been on myo-inositol powder for one month. Other supplements I take are : Evening Primrose oil, zinc 20mg, Vitamin A 8000IU, and omega 3 fish oil.

What I have noticed so far:

No new cystic breakouts!!! (Fingers Crossed!!!!!!!!!!!)

Breakouts less severe

Breakouts come to a 'head' (gross I know but those are the gory details) within a day...my old cystic spots would take around a month to start to heal. no joke.

So good progress. Good but slow. Rome wasn't built in a day! Getting back on track to how I was when vitex was kicking in before the massive cock up.

That's it for now.

I'll keep updated on how tomorrow goes.

Hey, wondering how your trip went to the herbalist and how things are going?

I'm taking dim and not seeing a ton of success, although it's a bit early yet to tell. Been reading about inositol for a couple months and just ordered some.
