  1. Do we make ourselves more sensitive to foods by avoiding them? Like if we're somewhat sensitive/intolerant of a food, does the longer we avoid that type of food/ingredient make us even more sensitive to it?
  2. Yea, I was taking a look at it. I was also mainly wondering if it will interfere with the Candida Supplements I'm currently taking for those occassions when I do take the Glucomannan: http://www.iherb.com/Pure-Essence-Candex-Y...-Caps/3218?at=0 http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Candida-Cle...mp;sr=1&fr=
  3. That's great, thanks for info. Yea, I'm definitely not planning on using it all of the time, more on my "cheat" days, especially with the holiday season coming up with Thanksgiving and Christmas. And birthdays and such, too. I've gotten tired of always having to politely refuse food during these occassions for fear of a breakout, but thanks for helping reassure me. Also, I was wondering, how much do you take prior to a meal and how long before the meal do you take it? Do you use the powder for
  4. Sugar/elevated insulin affects acne and skin in many ways such as hormones and inflammation. But yes it ages all of your cells including skin cells. Fixing your diet to eat real whole, nutrient dense anti-inflammatory foods in meals/drinks/snacks that do not spike blood sugar/insulin will do a lot more for you than clear your acne. I've read that glucomannan helps to stablize blood sugar levels prior to insulin spikes and that many people on this forum have used them prior to eating hig

  7. I ordered the capsule form from NowFoods, but the only information that I've read in regards to its treatment for acne is in the powder form. Is the powder form better or or significantly different than the capsules? Should I break the capsules to put the powder into a drink? Also, does anyone know if Glucomannan feeds Candida? I'm taking Candida Clear from Nowfoods and Candex as well.
  8. You can also ask your dr. if you can take probiotics along with the antibiotics.
  9. Hey everyone, I'm not sure who has tried Vilantae, but I've been taking it for the past 13 months. It's basically Vitamin B5 with other B complex vitamins. I've had good results with it, but I feel like taking 20 pills a day is getting excessive. You're only suppose to "megadose" on 20 pills for the first 3 months, but I was afraid that I would jinx myself if I went below this dosage, so I've kept it up to 20 pills a day. Do you guys think I should start to gradually decrease my dsoage at this
  10. The cyst has gone down dramatically, but I felt that I needed it at the time because it was so painful as it became unbearable. I didnt want to, but I was desperate to make the pain go away. At the time, aside from that cyst and a couple of minor new bumps, which I believe were "die off" symptoms, my face had cleared up considerably. I wound up only taking the recommended dose of the antibiotics for 4 days because I didn't want to risk the interference with the Candida Clear. However, I think my
  11. Hey everyone, I've been on Candida Clear for about a week. However, as one of the "die off" reactions, I experienced a large, painful cyst that actually worsened and woke me up in the middle of the night. I went to the doctor's because it was becoming too unbearable, and he prescribed for me to take Cephalexin for about 7 days (I haven't been on antibioitics for over two years, and at the time I was on Doxycycline for 3 months) along with a topical to help heal the cyst. The Cephalexin has worke
