  1. FCLO is a scam. they got me for about $400 before i finally figured it out. research it.
  2. i've grown my own kefir grains, i've also tried several types of soil based organisms, s. boulardi and various store brands. i can find NO correlation between probiotics and skin clearance. (but since my digestion is messed up, i still take them). growing kefir grains is by far the cheapest. going through an elimination diet to find offending foods worked for me. taking probiotics and eating those offending foods still gives me acne.
  3. everythingisbs... i was in the same boat. i suggest the diet & holistic health forum. i think you'll find potential solutions that, if followed, will change your skin, and health and life, for the better. -MGL
  4. 3mrd - have you tried betaine hcl? that might help your stomach if low stomach acid is the problem. you can also help your body create its own stomach acid by taking TMG (trimethylglycine), zinc and B vitamins. a blood test didn't work for my allergies. a skin test did though. -MGL
  5. i use spray-on Mg. very inexpensive. bypasses the gut and therefore avoids feeding gut critters (like candida) as an oral supp would.
  6. peanuts are one of the 7 major allergens. (and they're very high in mycotoxins so best avoided) only way to know is to test it. i'd put money on it causing acne. they do for me! so do almonds.
  7. Digestive enzymes never did a thing for me in terms of helping acne and i took them for a while and still got/get acne from egg, chicken & gluten, and more. Cutting those foods out worked for me. i just eat turkey instead of chicken. Potatoes instead of grains. Meat instead of eggs. I recommend some testing to try and hone in on what might be wrong. a good functional medicine doctor would have access to digestive tests. in my many years of tinkering, still the only thing that works is
  8. i would recommend trying an ox bile supplement to help with fat digestion, given that you no longer have your g/b. fats can putrefy in the gut and cause an overgrowth of bad bacteria if not properly digested. i've tried a few different brands. imo just go for whatever's cheapest, it's rather inexpensive. you can buy it in mild strength like 125mg or higher dose like 500mg pills. too much might cause issues at first so i'd start lower. or get the higher strength and some empty capsules and
  9. i think if you have acne then you have inflammation. i do not get migraines. but i sometimes get acne if i eat foods that i'm 'allergic' to.
  10. don't eat too much white rice, it's high in arsenic. ACV never did nothin for me. nor probiotic, or msm. i do use ACV though, love that stuff on salads.
  11. This seems to be working for me. It hasn’t been a quick process though. I can be 100% clear (if I chose to). But I still need to follow step 1, as I don’t feel I’ve fully completed step 2, and therefore can’t complete step 3. Here’s my suggestions in a nutshell. Step 1 – Elimination diet Figure out your trigger foods and eliminate. For me, going on a 100% whole foods (single ingredient, nothing processed) diet and avoiding the most common allergens keeps me clear (eggs, dairy, mil
  12. have you ever tested for excess heavy metals? candida won't clear until metals are delt with. i've read a lot about it. my opinion is that it's well worth a shot, especially if it won't cost much - and since a lab is doing it, you will definitely get a good sample. might want to try and eliminate some candida in the colon so the bacteria has a better chance of gaining ground. you could do a few water/saline enemas - lay on your left side and squirt that baby up there and hold it. you'll
  13. i don't think it's cuz of the meat. it could be that they use soy or you could have a food intolerance to another ingredient. it could be the cilantro in the rice is pulling mercury from your brain and liver back in to your body and causing inflammation.
  14. I've tried it alone and with the butter oil. the butter oil makes me break out, the cod liver oil doesn't do shit for acne. probably not enough vit A in each dose. you need a high dose vit A to dry up pores.
