  1. How does this work? How does an allergy speed the process so much more? And if this is true, as far as I can tell, I don't seem to have any allergies. If I take anything more out of my meal, I think I may die. I've already cut out quite a bit of my exercise because my body just can't keep up anymore because I am putting so little in. I've been eating pretty healthy lately and still breaking out. I eat about 250-350grams of Japanese sweet potato each day, tamagokake (raw pastured egg
  2. I'm just wondering how you guys go about figuring out which foods cause you to breakout? I've tried cutting out most foods that would be likely to cause acne but I just don't feel healthy. I do quite a bit of exercise each and every day and just feel extremely weak without eating my normal diet. What would you guys recommend and how would you go about figuring out which foods cause acne? I've heard it takes anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months for pimples to form which would make it extremely d
  3. Can you recommend any topicals? Preferably organic, pure, 100% natural ingredients. I've been looking at http://www.100percentpure.com/ for some stuff but was wondering if you had any specific recommendations? I am consuming quite a bit of antioxidants but do you think a topical would be more effective?
  4. First, apologies if this is not the right forum for this. I just started using BP again as I started breaking out like crazy the past month-and-a-half. I've been eating pretty healthy (organic, local) for quite some time now (3 to 4 years) but recently changed my diet to include much more raw greens, less meat, more nuts, and eat until about 50% - 80% of my capacity so that I can attempt to figure out which food aggravates my acne. I've also just read that it takes some time for a pimple to f
  5. I bike 7 miles each day to and from work and around 20-30 miles each weekend day and am still clear (with my new regimen which I just posted a few minutes ago in this same forum). I actually think the cold helps my acne, at least that is what it feels like. I would say it shouldn't matter riding (I would actually think exercising is good for the body, not just for your cardio and muscles, but for skin, and everything else) but everyone is different.
  6. Yes, we live longer and will therefore want our teeth longer. That's for sure, but I don't think we need to brush, in order to keep our teeth, if we do eat nutrient dense foods without eating the bad stuff. Our daughter recently got a cavity (we ate pretty bad during the first few months of her life, processed foods, frozen foods) and we've been giving her cod fish liver oil and butter oil and amazingly, it has been getting better. Not by brushing, but by giving her this stuff.
  7. I agree, peoples' bodies are different and different diets affect different people differently. But the thing is, so many people eat processed food. And I feel that in U.S., people OVEREAT that junk. I think that is what is at the core of many of our problems. The way I think about things is to always think how we would have done something when we were just primitive people. For example, brushing teeth. I don't think primitive man brushed his teeth morning and night, after meals. You may
  8. Not sure if info like this has been posted before. My wife recently stumbled upon an article here. Basically, it connects gluten to acne. And since gluten is in so many of the things we eat, it would be quite hard to get rid of our acne if it is gluten that affects our outbreaks. After seeing this article, I have been cutting out the gluten in my diet (which has been extremely difficult for me because I loved so many things that contained gluten) and I have been noticing clearer/better skin.
  9. You can just mix a bunch in a bottle and store it in the refrigerator. Not sure if you have to shake it or not with each use, but I do just in case.
  10. Not that much. It is more like a 1/2 cup of aloe vera to 1/8 cup vegetable glycerin. And then you can adjust to your liking.
  11. Hey all, I wanted to share my experiences with you guys. I'm not telling people to go out and try it, but for me, it has definitely been the best moisturizer, and I'll tell you why. So a few months back, my wife found this book on how to make your own household products (organically/naturally if you choose). These products contained no chemicals whatsoever and did wonders for the house. We are now living chemical free. Anyways, the book also gives a recipe for making moisturizer with only TW
  12. Check for a post that says "Best Lotion Ever". That is the lotion my wife discovered and I love using.
