  1. Egg was one of the 15 foods on my negative list after getting the IgG Elisa food sensitivity test. I stopped eating egg and anything with egg(like mayonnaise) along with the 14 other foods. I am completely clear from the face.
  2. I had an IgG Elisa done 6 months and have been avoiding all the 15 foods along with the additives. The reason I had the test done was because of neck breakouts that began 2 years ago. I no longer get face breakouts, but the neck breakouts have not completely cleared up. Thank you for suggesting the MRT though. I will look into it.
  3. I have not been on these forums in a long while and searched for recent topics that relate to my question. This question is for those who have had a blood food allergy/sentivity test done, preferrably IgG. What foods came up in your results as an allergy or negative reaction?
  4. The person above me mentioned avoid fluoride toothpaste. Honestly, I had acne for 18 years and I switched to fluoride-free toothpaste one day. My face got clear fast and it has been mostly clear, even though I am prone to hormonal acne(blood test showed hormone imbalance). Even if the fluoride toothpaste does not touch your face or if you wash your face, just having it in your mouth can cause breakouts.
  5. I have been taking beta-carotene 25,000 IU daily for more than 2 years, along with other vitamins including omegas. Yeah, I got clear; but at the same time I started taking this supplement I switched to fluoride-free toothpaste(tom's of maine brand) and I cleared up fast. I truly don't know if it was this supplement combined with other vitamins OR the switch to fluoride-free toothpaste.
  6. Alternativista, the peanut butter wheat crackers is considered a junk food to me so I know that was bad. I am planning to switch from soy milk to some other milk substitute. Is almond milk okay? As for the yogurt, I am thinking of trying a non-dairy yogurt recipe with coconut.
  7. Rejection is better than regret. I'm not saying you are going to get rejected though. If you don't try, you will always wonder what if? I was rejected before but I'm glad I tried and made effort. The weird thing is the guy who rejected me years ago is still single up to this day. Anyway, you just never know until you try. Rejection happens to almost everyone, even people without acne. Personally, I'm 30 and my significant other is 43. For 3 years we were friends first, because we met through
  8. Thanks for that info Dreamlify. I eat organic probiotic yogurt, but that is still considered dairy. I have not yet searched for non-dairy yogurts to consider buying.
  9. I read that hemp seeds help control carb and sugar cravings for those on the candida diet. Although I'm not on the candida diet, I started putting organic hemp seeds in some of my meals and they do reduce cravings.
  10. Yesterday: Morning - 1 organic boiled egg, 1 cup of light soymilk, 2 cups of spearmint tea Lunch - 2 pieces of baked tilapia, green beans Snack - wheat peanut butter crackers Dinner - 1 organic yogurt with hempseeds, 1 cup of light soy milk, 1 serving of chicken breast After Dinner - 2 cups of spearmint tea Today so far: Morning - 1 organic boiled egg, 1 banana, 2 cups of spearmint tea Note: I'm considering doing either the paleo or candida diet. I'm still reading a paleo diet book
  11. You mentioned you tried a diet before and it did help. Well, I guess for us adults with acne we have to stick to a certain restrictive diet all the time or most of the time. It is such a sacrificial and hard thing to do, but the the theory of 'no pain, no gain' is true in this situation. I didn't check if you were female or male, but if you are female, the adult acne could be due to a hormonal imbalance and being on a restrictive diet helps that too. Usually, if a hormonal imbalance is diagnos
  12. I once tried drinking licorice root tea but I didn't stay drinking it for more than one week. I read somewhere that it is something you can drink or take in pill form, but you can't stay on it for the long term.
  13. You welcome, I replied to you on pm, but yeah eventually I will try the Stash brand.
  14. hi, you know I tried the tea for a few weeks but I just got tire of it (I am adhd lol)It was nice but I Ima coffee person . Good idea though it you stay with it.

    I have been taking vit B5 (around 500 mg) and I definately think that helps reduce oil too.

    1. No you are not. I take lots of vitamins too. I take about 13 individual vitamins in one day, some of them twice. I don't do multivitamins. I've been taking lots of vitamins for more than a year. Just make sure you drink lots of water.
