  1. Hey everyone! I'm in a similar situation as a lot of the rest of you guys in that I experience side effects from taking isotretonoin. I can really feel your pain. I started reading this entire thread, but realised that going through the whole thing would take a lot of time. Can anyone who's been along since the beginning give me a quick summary of what kind of treatments, supplements, etc. people have found to be effective. Thank you
  2. Olives are great; White fox, please can you tell me if after consuming probiotics for a long period of time will i eventually be able to break the diet say once a week when eating out with friends and not get acne? And what are your thoughts on colostrum for healing the holes in my gut?? thanks and please reply Good to hear that you're seeing great results. You don't have to follow the diet as strict forever; read my previous replies in this thread and you'll find answers to your questions.
  3. If you perform a couple of searches on pubmed you will find several studies and reviews on the connection between gut microbiota and food intolerance, allergy and hypersensitivity. One example: Role of gut microbiota in food tolerance and allergies. But yes, there is still a lot of research left to be done in this field, especially studies on specific food intolerances are lacking for several reasons.
  4. I think he uses the word Herbivore in the sense that humans are able to digest and extract energy from plant foods, not that we are supposed to live exclusively on plants. Actually, if you see the anti-inflammatory diet he recommends, a lot of animal products are included:)
  5. Food intolerance I feel the need to repost this information from Dr. Art Ayers (PhD in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology. Worked at numerous institutions, including assistant professor in the Cell and Developmental Biology Department at Harvard University) http://coolinginflam...ntolerance.html
  6. Whitefox, I'll not be coy. I'm not santa claus, and perhaps I was doing the org a disservice when I wasn't clear the first time. Hopefully I won't have to repeat myself. You do not have the evidence to substantiate your claims. Specifically, your resources only cover lactose intolerance. Being completely honest, you're repeating yourself, but you never really answered the kind of questions Deja and I had. Instead, you just kept dogmatically preaching about the wonders of the gut diet, and bla
  7. It seems that most people are getting great results with diet, but.... For those not seeing results with the diet: I don't know how many times I have to repeat myself. IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU HAVE BEEN ON THE DIET FOR 4 MONTHS OR 2 YEARS FOR THAT MATTER IF YOU STILL HAVE DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS, FOOD INTOLERANCES ETC. Then you still have inflammation going on because of the leaky gut, poor gut flora and improper digestion, and acne will not clear. Dejaclairevoyant: You have made it clear t
  8. You're most likely eating to much protein. The "biggest" mistake people make when they switch from a high carbohydrate diet (with plenty of grains, legumes and other high carbohydrate foods) is to be afraid of fat. Fat should be your primary source of energy on this diet, and on most other paleolithic diets. Great to hear from you:) Although I feel that fermented dairy can be very beneficial, I agree that sauerkraut, kimchi and other fermented foods made form other sources than dairy, probab
  9. I'm very happy to hear about your great results with the diet:) Keep hitting the prebiotics and probiotics, and expect ups and downs!
  10. Could you define adjust, particularly with some of the current studies behind the gut theory that many of the proponents cite? I've come across some things like type 1 diabetes having a potential link with leaky gut, but I'd like to see what else is out there. I'm most interested in this idea that food sensitivities can go away. what about genuine allergies? A sort of update: I've been upping my probiotics for the same amount of time (water kefir, coconut milk kefir, kraut, kimchi). I found th
  11. My whole point is that it doesn't matter how long you have been on the diet if you still haven't adjusted to several sources of probiotics and prebiotics and/or still have gastrointestinal problems or food intolerances. Because then you still have a lot of inflammation going on and your acne will not improve.
  12. My acne was severe, and I had several food intolerances. I I haven't heard of 1 person that hasn't gotten the results I promised. I've always said that you have to follow the diet for several months, adjust to several sources of probiotics and prebiotics and get rid of food intolerances before you will see results. Those people I have been in contacted with that are getting close to this stage are seeing good results. I've never claimed that this treatment is anything else than it is, a treatm
  13. Those supplements are most likely a waste of time. If you eat according to the gut diet you will get the vitamins and minerals you need. And fat should be your primary source of energy, not protein. Good luck:)
