  1. )ノ)--> QUOTE (joris ヘ(ヘ)(ノ)ノ @ Apr 2 2011, 04:50 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Clinical-...-A-t215374.html post 3 has xD Tried to find a free pdf download and stumbled upon that link xD But probably comes down to the same thing as this forum and most acne books: Low carb elimination diet. Once clear try to reintroduce carbs. Also live a healthy lifestyle... No, it talks a lot about the Japanese diet before it become more westernized. Lots of fish, vegetabl
  2. I thought you said you got clear on the low fat vegan diet.
  3. i thought it was hard to test for candida because it is a normal resident in the human body...
  4. carbs don't cause acne. There's a whole thread about tribes who are acne free and get 80% of their calories from carbs. Also Japan was acne-free while having a diet rich in carbohydrates.
  5. kefir and yogurt would probably be a lot more powerful than a probiotic pill: http://www.scdiet.net/healingcrow/HealingC...conspiracy.html
  6. Both are probably interrelated. Probiotics suppress and compete with undesirable microorganisms in the gut.
  7. Is it that the potatoes cause acne or the way your body processes the potatoes causes acne?
  8. This is a summary of a study I read about recently on the benefits of eating organic produce: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/WBL02077/Organ...s-Minerals.html
  9. Interesting post. I spent a good amount of time in parts of East Asia. What I noticed was that acne was very rare in many societies that relied on grains. kind of the exact opposite of the paleo diet.
  10. Fructose intolerance is actually a fairly common condition.
  11. Grass fed beef has a really good omega 3-omega 6 ratio. So does fatty fish like wild salmon, sardines, and mackeral.
  12. Prehistoric man ate bread/grains: http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20101018/india_nm/india522760
  13. This month is breast cancer awareness month. In honor of this I'm going to be posting some of the red flags I've been seeing regarding low carb diets that emphasize fat and meat and breast cancer. This article is quite interesting. It says breast cancer survivors who go on a low fat diet increase their chances of not having a recurrence. If there are any people on the board who are breast cancer survivors or who know someone who is a survivor, I hope this is useful! http://health.msn.com/healt
  14. Have you seen the thread on negative health implications of low carb diets: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Negative-...ti-t278307.html Might be helpful
  15. Interesting news about the plant based diet. Former President Clinton is having success with the low fat vegan diet (just about the opposite of the paleo diet): http://www.canada.com/health/Clinton+sheds...0081/story.html
  16. Goats milk is supposed to be more tolerable for many people than cows milk. Culturing the milk with friendly bacteria might make it even more tolerable.
  17. It actually is pretty new--studies on the glycemic index and acne are pretty scarce. The medical establishment is just starting to accept the whole idea and the general population is probably even less familiar with it. People should really be encouraged to share information on these boards. As mentioned, these studies are not new. People are encouraged to share information - but the Important Topics section is there for a reason - so we aren't sharing the exact same information over
  18. It actually is pretty new--studies on the glycemic index and acne are pretty scarce. The medical establishment is just starting to accept the whole idea and the general population is probably even less familiar with it. People should really be encouraged to share information on these boards. Such studies are scarce, but not new. Not new at all. They're new. Given that doctors have been saying diet has no impact on acne for decades. The major study on GI and acne I last saw was date

  20. Now that I've learned that societies like the inuit did not have ideal diets (they suffered from arteriosclerosis and osteoporosis), I have been turning my research to other societies. Recently I have been reading about "blue zones"--the areas where the healthiest people in the world live. Interestingly, they appear to all have a plant based diet in common. Very different from the meat oriented, low carb diet.
  21. I feel sorry for you that you have to resort to disrespecful behavior to try and get your point across (including your last post where you called me a name) or misrepresenting my positions. I think this just confirms that you are not capable of having an intelligent discussion with me. "The solution to the paradox may lie in the fact that not all fat is created equal. [The Inuit] ate a lot of marine animals, like walruses and seals, whales and so forth, and the blubber of these animals is a ve

I'm just summarizing some of the red flags I've come across during my investigation into low carb diets, meat consumption and chronic disease Death risk http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/09/07/...in6841541.shtml Chronic Disease http://health.usnews.com/health-news/diet-...n-lifespan.html Cognitive Ability http://www.articleseen.com/Article_low-car...lity_32807.aspx Red Meat and Colon Cancer by Harvard University http://www.health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/...on-cancer.shtml Animal pro

  24. And then you have inuits who only really rely on seal meat and fish they are able to hunt. That means they have HUGE levels of saturated fat and very high protein, and yet are completely clear of acne. Rather than if saturated fat itself causes acne, you should rather focus on the damage done by OTHER foods which cause problems in food that shouldnt. The inuits relied on wild animals like whale and fish that are high in omega 3, not high in saturated fat. Your mention of the inuits actua
