  1. From an article about berries & how they help prevent alzheimer's http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/afraid-alzheimer-s-disease-eat-your-berries " By the way, rounding out the top twelve most antioxidant foods - besides the small red beans at the number one spot - we find red kidney beans at the number three spot, pinto beans at the number four spot, artichoke hearts at the number seven spot, prunes at the number nine spot and red delicious apples at the number twelve position. So include th
  2. I would try testing for allergic response by methodically eliminating foods. My cystic acne is a response to citrus.
  3. Yes, most links in old threads are broken. It happens every time they upgrade. I used to get them fixed, but no longer have time. Also, many threads have been archived so can't be changed. You can go to my profile & look for my topics. My topics: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/profile/54738-alternativista/?do=content&type=forums_topic&change_section=1 ZAG thread: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/247794-zag-enzyme-lectins-digestive-tract-and-clogged-pores/
  4. More on how bias leads to faulty research & acceptance by conventional medicine & elsewhere. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/11/30/biased-research-drives-health-care.aspx?utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art3&utm_campaign=20161130Z1&et_cid=DM127041&et_rid=1777055931
  5. [Link removed] More on epigenetics & a revision to our understanding of evolution. “The epigenome dynamically responds to the environment. Stress, diet, behavior, toxins, and other factors regulate gene expression.”
  6. Baked sweet potatoes. You can top them different ways to change them up. I used to eat sweet potatoes topped with sauteed greens & a tiny bit of feta as a go to lunch when I needed one.
  7. 5 Common Prescriptions That Should Require Nutritional Counseling Starts off with all the important things blocked by the Statin drugs they are trying to get us all to take as "preventatives" Very few people should take statins. Primarily those few with a rare genetic tendency towards very high cholesterol. Also, covers Hormonal birth control & metformin. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/5-common-prescriptions-that-should-require-nutritional-counseling/?awt_l=OFQc_&awt_m=J4nHxOd0jh
  8. You just have to try it. I tried taking MSM which many people take for skin & joints & it made me break out in a strange acne all along my spine from my hairline down. And it took a while to go away, since it wasn't an inflamed acne.
  9. Could have to do with your skin care. Soap, BP, etc. I'm 51 now and the last few years, suddenly people are telling me I have lovely skin. Apparently people don't see the scars or blotches as much as I do. I also have several features that I've always had or had for years, that I think look like age, now that I am older. Or that won't age well. Super thin skin/dark circles under my eyes. And my eye sockets are big and round making this a really prominent feature. I also have tiny acne sca
  10. Yes, avoiding high glycemic load meals, drinks & snacks will help acne & almost everything else to do with your health. But there's no need to calculate anything. Just eat mostly real, whole nutrient rich foods & never have empty high GL foods by themselves. Take a fiber capsule or have a handful of almonds or something when having a small cheat like the office birthday cake. Also, it might be helpful to note that starches become resistant after they've been cooked & cooled
  11. My cystic acne is a reaction to citrus. You might try avoiding that & see if it helps.
  12. Glyphosate sprayed on many grain, seed & bean crops right before harvest to dry them Also, GMO or not is not really the most important issue. The more important issue is whether or not it contains glyphosate. And glyphosate is sprayed on many bean, grain & other seed crops right before harvesting to dry the plant so it can be harvested by the machines which are gunked up by green vegetation. this is mostly done in northern climes with short seasons. But most of these things are g
