  1. why don't you ask her to prescribe the actual version and not generic?
  2. STRESS! it gives me tiny little bumps everywhere like within 6-10 hours of my melt down. SUGAR- doesn't necessarily break me out, it just makes my bumps inflamed and angry. Therefore STRESS + SUGAR = HUGE UGLY BREAKOUT
  3. Hey Taryn, Their right. It sounds like low blood sugar. I get it a lot. My mom and grandma have diabetes so I know I'm prone to it. I notice it happens mostly when I restrict carbs. I get really spacey and dizzy. It's def not the ACV, but you would likely be experiencing symptoms from the herbs. I took herbs like that for about 1.5 years and felt different. Hope it gets better! Maybe your beloved cereal will do the trick
  4. Use your fingers to exfoliate. I do it eveynight in the shower. My skin sheds so bad!
  5. I noticed when I started adding sea salt to my foods, my skin looked better. It wasn't a big enough difference to start a thread, but I thought it was helping
  6. Hey Paul, I am experiencing the same problem with dy patches of skin. It feels like sandpaper. It started on my inner cheeks, the dryness caused little non-inflamed clogged pores. Once that skin normalized, the bumps went away. Now I am having the patches on my mid center cheeks. And sure enough, little bumps are forming. I tried not bothering with removing the dead extra skin, but it just sits on the top of my skin and looks gross. I believe the dead flaky (almost dandruff like) skin patche
  7. it also causes you to swallow air, which is not good for digestion
  8. Hmm, it may be related to eating gluten or maybe you are consuming too much at one time. I notice that if I overeat, I will be bloated and gassy for the rest of the day. Also do you follow food combining? I agree with Rob. I would probaly just lie too. But they might want to see the paper haha. I think that some people feel guilty when they see their friends/family eating healthy. They will try to get you to eat junk to make themselves feel better. I'm lucky that my family generally supports
  9. Are you drinking enough water? The way I make sure to have a BM every morning is to drink a cup of warm water. You might wanna try this. I know how that feels to not want to eat because of the constipated feeling. I wish you a BM very soon
  10. Everything is still going pretty good. I've had some pimples here and there but I am not stressing over them. I have changed my attitude to where I see a pimple forming and instead of getting that sick anxiety feeling, I just say yeah it will be gone by tomorrow. I have not been under much stress since school is out and I have had a lot of free time. I am still eating my 1 egg, 1 egg white with chopped peppers, onions, and tomatoes in the mornings. I add sea salt and pepper and cook it with gh
  11. So you fell off the band wagon... just get back on and keep pressing forward. I have been doing the health thing for the past 2 years. I cannot begin to count how many times I cheated with whole pints of ice cream, entire pizza pies, cakes, chips, etc. What matters most is that you put it behind you and remain healthy. Don't give up. You will eventually see a difference in your skin and overall body. Having a strong sense of mind and peace is also important. Never tell yourself you are goi
  12. Haha, yeah I think it has a lot to do with a person's overal health. I don't have a coated tongue but I contribute that to my strict diet of whole foods. His birthday is next week, maybe i'll surprise him with a tongue scrapper How bad is it for me to kiss a coated tongue? Will it spread to my mouth... uggghh that's just gross.
  13. GROOOSSS I've been dating him for 7 months and I just found this out last night. It disgusts me to kiss him now. Is that silly? I take extreme pride in my mouth being clean and I only put good healthy foods/drinks in my body. I'd hate to cringe everytime I kiss him! Can he do something about that?
  14. I think I've connected my jawline acne to citrus foods as well
  15. If you're going to take it again, mind as well go for the full dosage and do it right. But I will warn you that if it came back in 6 months, it will probably come back again shortly after finishing the second course. Did you try using a topical after the first course to keep it under control? A lot of people start a topical right after the course for maintaince.
  16. Thanks for checking up socold. I am trying not to obsess over my skin anymore. Therefore I am not going to post as often. My diet is still fairly strict. I've been eating eggs, chicken, turkey, salmon, fish, and even beef on occasion. I have kept my lunch as a big big salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I ususally put carrots, onions, avocado (I've reduced the amount), and cucumbers. I changed my breakfast to chopping the peppers/onions very small and cooking it with the eggs. I also
  17. Haha, okay thanks. I have been feeling pretty good with how I've been eating lately. I guess I was just concerned with the high amount of fat I've been consuming and the very little amount of carbs. I don't want my muscles to be used up for energy (ketosis). Thanks and if anyone else has input I would be glad to hear. BTW: I am very small (100 pounds) and active but not a weight lifter
  18. I tried the low carb thing by only eating meats, veggies, fruits, seeds, and nuts.. but I hated the way it make me feel spacey and irritatble. I felt like my brain was in a constant fog. I was wondering how many grams of carbs would be enough for me to have enough energy and feel focused? Also I was curious about what a good amount of fat is? I use ALOT of olive oil and sometimes use avocados and eat fatty fish like salmon. Basically I am looking to find a healthy fat/protein/carb ratio.
  19. Well, it certainly must have been the lotion. I switched from cetaphil to complex 15 last saturday and have been amazed at how nice my skin looks. I have been eating a little on the wild side lately due to my discovery of the lotion mishap. Nothing HUGE by any means. I have been eating gluten free flax seed crackers which contains some tamari soy sauce but low on the ingredient list. Also yams have been in my diet lots. I feel so much better when I eat more carbs. The low carb thing is making
  20. I've been looking for this in stores but have had no luck
  21. I have long, thin, oily at the scalp, wavvy hair. My typical hair routine is to wash, condition (on ends) and let air dry over night. I wake up with frizzy waves and quickly run a straightner through. I'm getting bored of this look and would like to utilize my natural wave. I would like to find a product that I can apply to my wet hair and leave in overnight so that when I wake up, my hair has nice, natural, non frizzy waves. Gels are too thick and sticky, mouuse just makes it more frizzy,
