  1. Just want to note to anyone thinking of taking Silicea/Silica, start on a low dose. I was doing great on 2 x 6X (Hylands) tablets a day and my homeopath tried to up me to 1 x 12C droplet a day. Broke out after a day or so (took it for 3 days then back to 6X) for about a week. Prior to that, I tried taking 4/5 x 6X a day and that was breaking me out too.

Was smashing 4 eggs a day though and had to stop that to get clear (perhaps had vit d overload). Not averse to an egg or two now. Note: silicea 6x (2 tabs a day) has been a
