  1. http://www.aehf.com/articles/A21.htm This is a study on patients with vasculitis. However, adult acne was also listed as a symptom in 8 out of 10 of those patients. When all of the patients were placed in a pollutant free environment, every single one of them were cleared of all symptoms within days. Very interesting read, and also sheds some light on some issues many with acne have experienced, such as the variability of reactions from specific foods, acne getting better or worse during tr
  2. This study just came out a couple days ago, I thought it was interesting: http://blog.seattlepi.com/bodyandmind/arch...from=blog_last3
  3. In retrospect, the title could be better, I agree. I'll fix it. It could be that my problem is more unusual than the general population. Still, what are the odds that what causes my problem is completely unique to me and only me? I only posted this because it helps me and could potentially help other people too, not because I thought it was "The Cure" for everyone. There are already at least two other people in this thread who have said that snacking frequently helps them too. Really, do whate
  4. Are you saying you are clear from doing this? I think I'd have a really hard time doing that. If I don't eat frequently, I get weak and shaky, my vision goes dark when I stand up. Seriously, it's not fun. Some people in this thread seem to misunderstand what I mean by snacks. I'm not talking about coke and potato chips here people. Oh, and trail mix is NOT processed. Nuts and seeds are whole, unprocessed foods. The only thing processed would be the organic dark chocolate chips. And trail mix
  5. I stopped taking it, along with just about everyone else, because it seemed to extend cold symptoms in people, including myself, and that concerned me. I am not, and I have never, suggested that anything I have ever proposed was a one-stop solution for everyone. Egyptians are not ancient by the longer human history. Egyptians are pretty recent in that context. We are dealing with an unnatural situation because we have refined processed foods in our diet, and this causes requirements that p
  6. You'll find that kind of thing a lot on these boards. There are no-water before-or-after-you-eat regimens, and there are drink-water-all-day regimens. There are B vitamin regimes, and there are avoid-b-vitamin regimens. There are avoid-fat plans, and there are eat-a-lot-of-fat plans. I could go on and on. The point is, you have a lot of people saying that a lot of things have worked for them, and a lot of people saying those same things have not worked for them (or made them worse). You'll just
  7. Thank you for your information, that's very helpful :) The point is not that most of the calories come from snacks, but that you are not going hours and hours with no calories. That's pretty consistent with what I do, and with what you have described. I still have my main meals, I just avoid there being long stretches with no intake at all. I think it depends on what your definition of "hungry" is. I know that seems like a weird statement, but hunger is not like a light switch, it's a sensat
  8. Without having more specific information, I couldn't tell you. For instance, what do you mean by "constantly?" What is it that you're eating constantly, and at what times? In my case, I have found one exception to my rule, and that is dairy. If I eat a lot of dairy, I start getting jawline acne. That's the only exception I've found so far.
  9. Yes, I do eat before bed. I read in an article in Discover magazine that in most undeveloped countries, at any given time up to 25% of the population is awake in the middle of the night to eat a snack and hang out. Night time is the longest eating fast in the whole day. So I do almost always eat something right before I go to bed (before I've brushed my teeth of course!) Generally, I try to not let myself feel hungry, and that works well for me.
  10. Lately, I've been trying to gain weight. So what I thought I would do is buy a lot of snacks (healthy for the most part), and add calories by snacking throughout the day. And guess what happened? My skin cleared up. So I was thinking about this, and it makes a lot of sense. For one thing, it keeps your blood sugar levels really stable, and prevents the blood sugar spikes and crashes that really reek havoc on your hormonal system. Another point though is evolutionary. For thousands and thousands
  11. Actually Virastop does contain enzymes to digest fats and carbohydrates. It's Candidase that is only protease and cellulase and nothing else. On the enzymedica website, they have a label viewer for each of their products if you'd like more info on what each of their products contains. When I was taking Digest Gold and Lypo, I was taking them with meals, 2 - 3 capsules per meal.
  12. There are enzymes in food, and enzymes produced by the pancreas as well.
  13. Well, thank you for sharing your experience. I'm curious though, if you were completely clear, why are you trying supplements? How would you know if something was good for your skin if you have no acne to start with?
  14. There are several who have gone completely vegan and their acne got worse. So it's not as simple as saying "become a vegetarian". You have to do it right for one thing. Some people think just not eating meat is healthy, but then they eat nothing but pasta, cereal, and potato chips. It's horrendous. It's not just about what you're not eating, it's also about what you ARE eating.
