Has Anyone Had Success W/ Switching To Organic Non Gm Food?

5 posts in this topic

I had success by eating real whole nutrient dense foods. These days, I eat mostly organic, especially with foods that really need to be organic. But not at first.

Organic r not isn't what's going to make the difference unless you have some intolerance to the pesticides and other chemicals. What makes a difference is avoiding high glycemic impacting meals, drinks and snacks and other processed food crap like hydrogenated/trans fats and HFCS. And anything you have an intolerance for.

instead, consume foods with nutrients.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

No, but;

My daughter started getting pimples when she was 8, and by age 11 she had nasty small red pimples all over her forehead and nose.

After lots of internet research we eliminated milk from her diet. The improvement was immediate.

We have found that she also gets pimples from soy milk.

She is vegetarian, but in my research some people reported getting acne when they ate meat, and in particular beef - though we wouldn't know.

It is pretty much accepted that hormones that cause acne, and the hormones in these particular foods seem to create an overload.

it must be noted that everybody is different. Some people never get pimples regardless of what they eat, and others may get pimples from some foods but not from milk. Nevertheless I believe milk is the major culprit in most cases of acne.

My daughter eats yoghurt, cheese and chocolate, only in small quantities and not often, and this doesn't seem to affect her skin. Other than that she has always had a very healthy diet - lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.

She is 14 now and has lovely skin.

I don't know, I recently discovered a lot of the organic food I've been eating is GMO. Since nothing is labeled gmo it's difficult to know which brands to trust.
