  1. Good for you Jackiey...that's a great attitude. Who knows, maybe things will smooth over a little with time? I would like to see a picture if you don't mind. I'm glad you're feeling okay about it.
  2. Hi Jackiey. Thank you for creating this thread. I'm wishing you the best of luck and following your progress because I too really want to get this treatment done. Please keep posting. Thinking of you.
  3. I really hope someone can help me. I've always had very mild acne but in the past year and a half a combination of birth control, severe stress, and a minimal skin regimen (I had trouble taking care of myself) have caused a severe acne breakout. The pores on my inner cheek are clogged to the point that I can see when I get close up that there is some pale white residue clogging them (sorry this is gross). My skin is red, dry, tender, swollen, and I have atleast 7 white heads on my outer cheeks.
  4. Has anyone been drinking green juice? Will 4-8 oz a day be good for acne? Does it cause a rise in blood sugar? Thanks.
  5. Yes I took birth control for three months a year and a half ago.
  6. I've been a binge eater for the past year and my digestion is totally messed up. I'm ready to stop and put things right. The problem is, at this point anything I consume is bloating me up. One glass of water swells my stomach like crazy. Should I go to a naturopath/doctor to solve this? Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
  7. Thanks a lot for your replies! I will ease into the fast and try to take in what feels best.
  8. I have been a binge eater for the past year and my skin has obviously really suffered for it. I have cystic acne, scarred pores...it's awful. I'm in therapy and am ready to stop. I'm planning to begin a fast tomorrow (a safe one, lots of water, boiled vegetable water, vega smoothies) that will last for about a week and a half. Afterwards, I'm planning to follow a raw food diet for quite some time. I've researched my plans and I think that I've caused digestive problems (I get bloated after eatin
  9. I have problems with anxiety and depression and emotional eating used to be my way of dealing with them. I've been sticking to a whole foods diet recently and I'm doing well, but right before bed is like torturee for me. It's my usual binge time, and I've been doing whatever I can to prevent myself from giving in. Right now I'm eating 1-2 riesen chocolates and a spoon of almond butter with a few sips of coconut water. This helps. Does anyone have suggestions for a more acne-friendly bed time sn
  10. This was extremely helpful. Thanks so much.
  11. Hey guys please google 'Anna Lynn Mccord skinny vs curvy.' There are some pics of her without makeup and it really opened my eyes and boosted my confidence. Hope it does the same for you.
  12. I'm currently using tretinoin gel .025 (retin-a) nightly as well as a prescribed antibacterial face wash morning and night. My face is really peely and dry and I feel like I really need to give it a break once every other day or so. I was wondering if anyone could recommened a face wash to me that will work well for oily skin that's dried out (so strange)?
  13. I'm indian and yogurt is included with dinner most of the time. I really miss eating it and I always ate it plain. I gave it up when I read that dairy could be contributing to my oily skin/acne. Does anyone see anything good in including plain nonfat yogurt in my diet?
  14. I've never heard of cocoa nibs but I'll look into it :]
