  1. Hello, i have been away for a while after doing alot of research I have discovered that the cause of my acne is leaky gut + histamine intolerance .

  7. Ok so waht i though was pih was actually a cyst and i has to be the garlic as that is the only new thing i added into my diet. This is so frustating!!!!!!!!!!!!! The cyst from broocoli would be on my back but this is on my cheek
  8.

  9. Ok a diet of just cabbage , carrots, salmon , chicken, split lentils, chickpea pancakes with a little honey, little broccoli, apples and sesame seed bar cleared me up for a month But I stopped because this is way too restrictive for a long term I found nuts as well as citrus, dairy, pesticide filled pulse flours and brown flours from grocerys as well as food with addictives in them made my acne seriously bad I also found that anything at all histamine relasing will cause my acne even berr
  10. Hello I am sri lankan so I guess we have a similar diet. The diet that kept me clear was eating brown rice, pancakes made from chickpea and channa dal flour. It was lightly cooked on the frying pan- half a teaspoon of olive oil was used to make 6-8 pancakes. With rice I ate carrots, little boccolli cabbage, red split lentils and then late I ate a 20p sesame seedbar from tesco and two apples. I also ate chicken and salmon. The diet kept me clear for a month however I stopped because such a di
  11. Well that great if you dont have cystic acne then you dont have to do the low histamine diet or worry about food allergens. Yes it is the caffeine thats bad llike i said i had just a case of mild acne before and have always been under stress however the caffeine just worsened my problems I have a list of problems including severe acne due to the depletion of b vitamins making it impossible to eat histamine rich food and histamine liberators. I drank tea twice a day before but tea is low in caff
  12. Look into antinflammatory, anti histamine, antioxdant foods - garlic- antihistamine- very anti inflammatory start with one clove berries- acai berry, acerola berry - high in vitamin c - chammonile tea anti histamine and reduces stress Cinnamon - no more than 2g otherwise toxic - caretenoids- beta carotene: carrots, sweet potato - Querecitin rich foods- lovage leaves, apples - black pepper and tumeric drink- anti inflammatory - cumin seeds - a teaspoon Anti inflammatory s
  13. Have a low gi / low gl diet. Low gl basically looks at the quantity of food your consuming for example people in asian countries consume white rice (high gi) however do not have acne becuasse they consume it only in small amounts. Remove corn products- corn is high gi, there are some fruits such as watermelon and cantoloupe that can break people out becuase they are high gi. Dont go for instant oatmeal look for steel cut oats or traditional irish porridge which will have 100percent wholegra
  14. Hello I did try the raw food diet and my skin became realyy bad on my back , face and chest. This is mainly becuse I was eating a lot of histamine releasing foods such as tomatoes, spinach, aubergine, green tea,as wll as things I am intolerant to suchh as citrus and nuts
  15. You can use a straw have you tried drinking a teaspoon (not sure if it is a teaspoon) of acv a day. I dont do citrus even one drop of lemon juice will cause a cyst for me. One tangerine will mean increased heart rate, intense itching 2 cysts withing 3 minutes ish, dizzines oh and 2 tangerines will mean a trip to the hospital. 3 tangerines will probably kill me which is sad as i never thought i would be so easy to kill. Death by tangerines isn't exactly appealing. Sorry I dont mean to scare
  16. Stress is what caused my acne as well uder stress the body depletes itself of b vitamins - partiuly b5 b6 b12- which causes food intolerances and reactions to foods look for fortified cereals
  17. caffeine caused deep cystic acne for me
  18. Hiya I am 16 I started getting cystic acne around 8 months ago - cystic acne tends to be due to a food intolerance look into the hypoallergenic food list and then slowly start to introduce new foods every 4 days. I have found that citrus, nightshades, deep fried foods and caffeine were major triggers of my facial and body cystic acne.
  19. Hiya i'm not sure but wouldn't cooking lentils destroy these antigenic proteins- what about nuts and seeds? Yes, but it varies from seed to seed how difficult it is to destroy the antinutrients. Soaking sprouting or fermenting before cooking is best. And most must come to a boil for at least 10 minutes. Also, there are foods that contain glyconutrients that bind up the antinutrients. Some are found in tons of foods, some are not. Soy, peanuts & wheat are the most problematic with the
