  1. @k3tchup That's why I always say that for optimal health supplements account for 1/3 of the results. 1/2 of what you call "health" can only come from the "trifecta" DIET + EXERCISES + SLEEP. If (for example) the goal is to raise testosterone/libido, and one of these things is amiss, then you can be 100% sure you'll flop. Why? Because even being inactive and not having a workout routine aimed for the goal of increasing T will harm a lot the results. Bad sleep will for sure drop A L
  2. Many things are beneficial. Not just MAG and Zinc. Look into my profile, I made a few posts about libido and raising T, with a Dropbox link for studies. Among the things that also raise libido/T are TONGKAT ALI and FENUGREEK. If you look into the Now Foods page from Amazon (for example) you'll see reviews from men claiming this worked. Of course if possible avoid this and other companies putting crap in fillers/additives, since this one has MAG stearate and silicon dioxide. The few studies
  3. Have you all thought about doing a DHT blood test? Because low DHT is bad, but if it's high then that explains EXACTLY these side effects: **************** High levels of androgens, including DHT, can shrink your hair follicles as well as shorten this cycle, causing hair to grow out looking thinner and more brittle, as well as fall out faster. DHT can also make it take longer for your follicles to grow new hairs once old hairs fall out. Some people are more susceptible to these effec
  4. Don't know about CBD... I compiled a few studies on isotretinoin here (PDF): https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hlck885uu1jvi52/AABkIrjGGVjmSNpjsI5m6rDMa?dl=0 Besides the others about supplements. What is said specifically in PDFs 1 and 10 is that Accutane messes with the hormones in an attempt to fix acne, the thing is, no one can be healthy if, for example, DHT is too low. Listen: it can't be too high (because that means ACNE and other known problems), but if it's too low you will have a host o
  5. This drug should be banned for all ages, this doesn't happen because the manufacturers have deep pocket$$$$$. Some like sexual dysfunction were not included in the leaflet for that reason, not because they didn't know. No, this has been known for DECADES. And depression was always there, it's not like this has only been found yesterday. BTW, I just found out a forum that has some good scientific info about how Accutane works to cause some persistent side effects: https://www.pasforum.info
  6. As the name implies, a supplement is just that: the tip of the iceberg in what you need to do to fix your health. People need to supplement because you can't eat over 4 pounds daily just to get enough D-3, or 100, 200 grams of raisins every single day to get your boron daily intake... or 1.5 pound of salmon to get your astaxanthin. (note: these figures are not exact, yet you get my point). I'd say 30% of the results come from supplements, while 20% would be getting rid of toxins (BPA and ot
  7. Someone mentioned angular cheilitis, dry lips... still as a side effect from Accutane. It shouldn't come as a surprise this is another vitamin deficiency: B2. What is concerning about this is the following: - Accutane can cause IBS - There's no cure for it, at least according to this link: https://www.webmd.com/ibs/supplements-help-ibs#1 The side effects are, of course, improved, if we take care of the diet and supplements. Including probiotics, which I didn't me
  8. All of this is probably due to vitamin B-12 depletion. Supplement with a good whole-food multivitamin. Accutane also induces a deficiency of folate/B-9. Please read my posts here for more info: https://www.acne.org/forums/topic/295030-repairing-the-long-term-damage-from-accutane/?do=findComment&comment=3637126 https://www.acne.org/forums/topic/295030-repairing-the-long-term-damage-from-accutane/?do=findComment&comment=3637128 https://www.acne.org/forums/topic/295030-r
  9. I never heard about isotretinoin causing B-vitamin deficiencies until last night, I wasn't expecting to find this, and then saw this article and the link for the study, and couldn't believe at first because I've been looking for evidence that could explain the sexual side effect bit for years. Is this a single research? It was conducted recently, in 2014. Link for the study I only mentioned that Kevin Pezzi book (read my previous posts) about the low libido/sexual dysfunction that appa
  10. Most of the time if you fix your diet (and do some FASTING, like 16/8), workout routine, sleep and supplementation (which I would say account for 30% of the results) these conditions are fixed or improve greatly. LUPUS is one of the diseases that can cause hair loss, because one of the consequences is widespread inflammation that usually involves the skin, particularly the face and scalp. Most people (not just Accutane users) have vitamin D deficiency (and others that can only be fixed with
  11. Hair loss is also a result of vitamin D-3 (cholecalciferol) deficiency. Even if Accutane can't induce this deficiency people that had acne often have this problem, so you might want to really check what your current levels are. There's a calculator here (article requires free registration to be read): https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2021/01/09/uk-vitamin-d-and-coronavirus.aspx https://www.acne.org/oral-vitamin-d-how-much-is-too-much.html You need to have blood level
  12. About dopamine: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/jdv.16489 Interesting passage: Suicidal risk with isotretinoin treatment – a never‐ending story Despite numerous case reports linking isotretinoin to depression, suicidal ideation and suicide, there is, as yet, no clear proof of an association. But van Broekhoven et al. published that although any causal relationship has not been identified, such a relationship cannot be ruled out. In contrast, other autho
  13. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_H3o7kEWY2Y I was wondering if someone here actually took Mucuna Pruriens for raising dopamine levels which if I understand correctly are messed after the Accutane treatment, resulting in depression (I had this for years), and may also explain this: https://rxisk.org/accutane-30-years-of-trading-our-sex-lives-for-clear-skin/ In this book: http://libgen.lc/item/index.php?md5=D0A268CBFAD463E9794C58D5992B45F4 At page 250 there is a quick summary a
  14. I found this week what caused my issue (severe left shoulder pain): supplementing with 4000 IU (twice the max daily intake recommended by the European Food Safety Authority, check this PDF) vitamin D-3 (was also taking 100 Mcg K-2 MK-7) causes hypercalcemia especially if you are taking dairy often and also some crap almond milk with enriched calcium, which was my case, tricalcium phosphate was the name of the poison in the list of ingredients. My problem was described in the ultrasound test
  15. I did more blood tests today... This one: https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/sed-rate/about/pac-20384797 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erythrocyte_sedimentation_rate Measured 65mm (lab range: no more than 15mm up to 50 years old). However rheumatoid factor was 5,0 UI/mL (lab range: less than 20). Still waiting for Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibodies. Creatine kinase low, 42 (lab range 24 - 195). Alkaline phosphatase also OK. So far I am only seeing in the re
