  1. Unfortunately, yes. 2-3 times a year i take short courses when things get out of control, it's either that or live as a recluse in a closet with suicidal thoughts. I still favor the holistic approach and been diet experimenting for 9 months now. Ive been trying to avoid the nuclear option (accutane) my entire life, im terrified of going that route but perhaps that's all that's left for me. At 35, im hoping and praying that someday my age will catch up and i'll outgrow it all.
  2. Hi, i need to take a short course of doxycycline (7 days) and want to take probiotics to neautralize the effects on good bacteria. Actually, im always on probiotics but im gonna up the dosage. My question is what's the best time to take it, i assume taking them too close to eachother is not ideal. I was thinking taking the doxy before i go to sleep and the probiotic supplements after breakfast. Any advice ? Thank you.
  3. What's the scoop ? have heard it can be a problem. i drink lots of orange juice and lemon in my tea, think ill give it up for a few weeks and see what happens. what other fruits fall into the citrus family, beside oranges and lemon/limes ?

  5. Eggs are the most nutrient packed food on earth. Unless ur allergic, why would you eliminate them ?
  6. I had the same problem, i was skinny to begin with before starting a paleo. I've lost 18 lbs and am now at 160, kind of low for my height (6'2). Been getting comments from friends about the weightloss and a few worried that i've been sick. I've since added organic brown rice to my diet, if you've gotta eat grains rice is the best bet, it's the least inflammatory and contains many nutrients.
  7. eliminating for a month since i've read they are allergenic. potatos, tomatos, peppers. what else ? does that include sweet potatos ? black pepper or just bell peppers ? thanks.
  8. Great, i might add it to my diet. Any other thoughts ?

  10. A few weeks ago i went on a yogurt binge, ate 4 pounds after not eating dairy for 7 yrs. i wanted to test the theory and see if my body changed at all. Within 24-48 hrs i broke out with at least 12 big cysts and skin overall turned an angry reddish color. Ill never touch milk again, me thinks.
  11. thanks a bunch. Hey are you guys avoiding gluten topically like in shampoos, soap, etc. Can it get absorbed by the skin ?

  16. i have a half dozen deep crater scars that havent responded to treatments. ive tried just about everything from needling and tca to laser. nothing has worked, if anything i think ive made them worse. anyway, im lookin at excision now as a last resort. 1. how much does it cost (im sure it varies, but a ballpark figure) 2. when the scar is excised, i understand extra outside of it is taken out-will the resulting line scar be a little longer or like doulbe then the original scar ? 3. can you u
