  1. First of all, you should make sure if you have gluten intolerance ( or celiac disease). If you're negative, then you can try sourdough bread, you can even bake your own guten free bread. Anyways, you shouldn't eat more than 2 loaves of any kind of bread, because it's hard to digest and it's not good for your gut. Try to eliminate all baked goods for 10 days and see how your skin reacts. If nothin changes then probably your problem comes from dairy or some specific food allergy or some other innn
  2. Do those tests really find out every food that causes acne for you? I might give it a try. Yes! Do some research about those allergy tests. There are severeal ways to have done it: 1. Blood test 2. Stool test 3. Skin test 4. Keeping personal journal If you want to find out what really causes your acne you should take an allergy test (igG and igE). Two of the antibodies involved in allergic reactions are immunoglobulin E (IgE) and immunoglobulin G (IgG). IgE production occurs right af
  3. I don't think everyone has a food allergy, per say. But I do think anyone who has acne problems should give up gluten. It's only going to hurt them not to. It doesn't matter if it's a specific allergy or not. It's damaging to everyone's gut, and that effects acne AND makes more food allergies over time. Yes, dairy, gluten and sugar should not be the main part of anyone's diet, who has acne. However if the one doesn't have severe form of gluten allergy, it won't harm them to have little loaf of
  4. Yes, Some people may be intolreant to oranges, some people may eat them without any problems. Or you may have a severe gluten allergy and never ever be able to touch wheat, but you may enjoy nuts for example. Like I said before, everybody should take IgG and igE test. That will answer to your all questions.
  5. Is it actually possible to become intolerant to certain foods all of a sudden? Isn't in your body since you were born?
  6. It's good to know that your diet has already reduced the problem. But what is the normal bowel movement frequency? Many people believe that the definition of a normal bowel movement is having 1 movement each day, but that is not true for everyone. There is no rule for frequency of bowel movements, but the general range is from 3 times a day to 3 times a week. Less than 3 movements a week may indicate constipation, and more than 3 watery stools a day could indicate diarrhea.
  7. Poster X, If you want to find out what really causes your acne you should take an allergy test (igG and igE). Two of the antibodies involved in allergic reactions are immunoglobulin E (IgE) and immunoglobulin G (IgG). IgE production occurs right after ingestion or inhalation of an allergen and is referred to as a Type I immediate hypersensitivity reaction. IgG antibodies are produced for several hours or days after exposure to an allergen and are called Type III delayed hypersensitivity reactio
  8. Yogurt is different in the way it is already fermented and is absorbed by your body better; in fact yogurt can be healthy for the digestive system by promoting more healthy bacteria. Thats what I thought....it has to be somehow healthy. I've been reading about kefir too and maybe I can have that and add fruit in it and raisins and something crunchy like nuts in it. You know anything about kefir? They sell them at my local grocery store (the lifeway brand) so the next time I go to the grocery st
  9. No, gluten and dairy affect people who are not celiac and are not lactose intolerant. And they affect clear skin people. And no, there are many, many ways diet affects acne. It affects your hormones, it affects the chronic inflammation that is at the root of acne formation, it affects how your organs function, it affects how you deal with stress, it affects your sleep. http://www.acne.org/...ar-skin-health/ Yes, gluten and dairy can affect digestive system negatively, but they won't cause
  10. Hey Amy, I just found this post, how are you doing with your digestive health? Have you resolved your constipation problem? You should prevent constipation and cure any digestive problems. These are great contributors to inflammation and acne. Maybe something in your diet is making you constipated ( wheat for example or any other hard to digest foods)? Try to eliminate those foods. Eat more fruits and veggies, drink plenty of water. Do some research about constipation/acne and find ways to preve

  12. This is what I found for you, Amber: Acne causes: 1.Food allergies, especially in adults over 25, are the cause of some of the worst cases. 2. In general, bad digestion, often caused by too little hydrochloric acid in the stomach, leads to the inability to absorb important nutrients and is a major cause of acne. 3. Other causes are deficiencies in zinc, vitamin A, and essential fatty acids such as linoleic 4. Allergies to cosmetics may be a cause, too, so if your acne started after using n
  13. Dejaclairevoyant, I'm sorry you have such a severe form of gluten allergy. But try to understand that not all acne sufferers are celiac or lactose intolerant. Some people may develop acne in their late 20's or even 30's. Food allergies are not the only cause of acne. Amber07, you should stop stressing over your diet, you're getting obsessed, which can lead to serious psychological and social problems. Like I said, you can't believe everything you read on Internet. You're depriving yourself w
  14. Okay, first of all-calm down! Stress is bad for acne! Secondly, Let me explain you this: Acne can be caused by many reasons, one of them are food allergies/ intoleracnes. There are tons of people with celiac disease, lactose intolerance, some nut allergies and etc, and they truly cleared their acne via diet changes. HOWEVER, there are acne cases that are not caused by food allergies, but hormonal imbalance, genetic factors, makeup, picking or even emotional toxins. You keep saying that your bre
