  1. Databased, are you saying that the culprit is eye exposure to UVA rays, or light that enters the eyes? In other words, is UVA here being described as the primary causal factor, or just a factor in addition to light exposure, because I may be in trouble as I wear glasses?
  2. The problem with this, is although getting sunlight in the eyes is likely the most effective way of dealing with carbohydrate malabsorption, in our American society, more and more lifestyles are being made sedentary and put indoors. Surely there are other ways to try and combat carbohydrate malabsorption? Perhaps through some degree of dietary change? Also, you mentioned that fructose is generally more well-absorbed if combined with carbohydrates. Can the reverse be true? Can carbohydrates in t
  3. Some quick observations: I've been on multiple Steak and Shake runs in the last week for milkshakes, and most notably my skin's been a lot more irritated at previous blemishes, and new whiteheads are starting to show up. So, my basic skincare regimen: 100mg Zinc / day No dairy Hope this helps you guys out.
  4. An update on my experience ongoing with this: So about a month ago, I started taking 100mg zinc a day in the form of 2 50mg pills: Once in the morning, and once in the evening. I haven't gotten a new breakout in about 2 weeks; something completely unheard of for me since I've had acne (largest timespan without a new whitehead was about 3 days). Needless to say, I'm very happy with the results, and honestly, I don't get that much sun. From my own experience, spending entire days out in the sun h
  5. Just my experiences with different supplements: I've found that 150 mg of Zinc a day helps to an extent, HOWEVER, everytime I overdose like this, I experience pains about three days in in my heart region, or my lower abdomen. Also, I tried GliSODin (about 3 pills a day, I think 150 mg?) for a couple of days, and noticed the next day, I would get odd pains in my knee while walking, as though I had arthritis or something in it. Needless to say, I stopped taking GliSODin after that. Supplements se
  6. What about those of us who are agnostic or atheist? Maybe we should be working towards an actual cure or remedy instead of giving up hope and believing that it is merely up to fate from whichever of the 1000's of gods in the world that you happen to believe in. I really don't mean to belittle you or troll the thread, and I know you mean well, so I earnestly apologize if this offends. If you get comfort from your beliefs, all the more power to you, but I don't think this is a reason to simply g
  7. Hey there databased, glad you're still doing such avid research on what looks to be an actual pathway to a cure. Here's some thoughts for you: Going into college for my first semester, I noticed that I started getting whiteheads on my torso and limbs. I thought this was very odd and irritating as this has never happened to me before--acne showed up only on my face before. This was even with staying outside for hours for days and going to bed early (for me, that's 10:00 AM). Then, it hit me. As
  8. Just wanted to say: I used to believe that my acne was fully caused by masturbation. However, after attempting to determine by databased's model whether my lack of sunlight was the problem, I've been keeping a log the last couple of days listing how much sunlight I get a day, how many times I choke the chicken, when I go to bed, when I get up, etc. I've been doing the dirty deed once per day for about the last 4-5 days straight, and the only fluctuations in my acne have been directly correlated
  9. Some questions: 1. So you're spending the entire time in daylight, then approx. how many hours is that? 14 hours awake, so 14 hours in daylight? 2. Do you go to sleep RIGHT when the sun goes down? That'd be like 7 or 8 PM here. What time do you go to sleep and wake up?
  10. I ask because I actually have transition lenses, which seem to completely block UV rays. However, they also seem to reduce the intensity of the light rays that enter the eye, so I'm a bit unsure whether I should be wearing them outside or not.
  11. Hey databased, this is really great research you're doing, and it sounds plausible, but I'm wondering: what if I wear glasses? Will any of the sun's indirect rays be able to enter my eyes? Do I need UV specifically, or just the light?
  12. Hi there. I've had acne since I was 11 (I'm 18 now) and here are some things that may help you quite a bit: 1. I don't know what your opinion on topicals is, but personally I hate 'em. They mess up your skin pH. So I don't use any topicals, creams, or washes whatsoever. Your body's more than capable of healing itself. You just have to stop the cause. 2. Cut out dairy completely. No, if you eat some cheese, you'll probably be fine. But I've found milk breaks me out a bit. Try to opt for water o
  13. Biggest problem is staying away from the porn. I know if I stay away from it, I won't do the act, so a lot of the day is devoted to NOT thinking about it. Of course I've tried to put internet blockers on all the sites I know, but it doesn't matter much when I can just get in over my head, disable the blockers, and do my business. After going through these motions many times, I've felt guilty about not being able to keep my promise to myself, and am currently using the following method. 1. If I
  14. I've been on-and-off abstaining for random periods since about early May of this year. Though I have never been able to abstain for over a 5-day period, there have been many many periods of 2-3 days of abstinence. Apparently this has done something over time, since right now my face is completely smoothed over. The only hint of acne on my face right now is the whitehead on my forehead (which is now a tiny red scab), and the various red/fading pink marks on my face where old whiteheads were. Righ
  15. Hi there, I'm a male at 18, and I've had mild to moderate acne since I was 11. Since it started, I've used all sorts of gels, washes, and medications, including Retin-A, Tazorac, BP, Salicylic Acids, Dan's BP and Washer, and Neutrogena washers. All of them had differing effects, with the most common one being my skin felt thinner and irritated, leading to more breakouts over time. A year ago, I found jan carlo's post about doing absolutely nothing and waiting, and thought, well, it's better th
