  1. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/are-oats-healthy/ http://www.trackyourplaque.com/blog/2010/03/oatmeal-good-or-bad.html
  2. Right on. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/healthy-oils/
  3. Beta blockers (Inderal, Atenolol, Propranolol) might work some. They can be used long-term with a low potential for addiction/tolerance. Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan) work great for anxiety but addiction/tolerance can become an issue with daily use. They are also controlled substances so getting them prescribed can be difficult. I have Klonopin prescribed (1mg PRN) and it actually helps a lot. I seem to be more relaxed and care about my acne less on the 1 or 2 days a week I take it
  4. Right on. I had someone at work make a comment about the food I was eating was causing "pimples". I replied with something along the lines of "never ending battle" and continued on with my work. I think sometimes people are just trying to help, but do not realize how hurtful some of their comments can be.
  5. @Core Those numbers look really good. I need to pull the trigger and get a meter.
  6. You want nicotinic acid. Other forms can be harmful to your liver. Here is a good article about the different forms of Niacin.
  7. I do not believe checking blood sugar levels is a waste of time (even if it does not affect acne). And I am not alone in my belief. One-hour after-eating (postprandial) appears to be the best time to test your blood sugar levels. Here is a great article by Dr. William Davis a cardiologist on the subject. I've been wanting to get a meter for a long time but have not yet done so. I am not diabetic but believe checking blood sugar levels is key to helping keep myself healthy.
  8. @JoeBloggs Interesting you mentioned your acne got better when you had your wisdom teeth out. Mine got better for the few days following my wisdom teeth surgery as well. I think I was taking an antibiotic though. I wish I could remember the name of the other drug I was on besides Vicodin. I think it started with the letter "M". Perhaps it was not an antibiotic. In general, I do not like the idea of taking antibiotics to treat acne.
  9. I'd argue cacao is good for you. Reminds me that I have some nibs I need to start eating again. I ate them for a while and noticed no difference in my acne. Although, I probably did not take them consistently enough to have much of an effect.
  10. Cheaper wines (which you did not have) add sugar to the mix to make them taste better. Sugar = bad Resveratrol = good Resveratrol is the antioxidant in grape skins. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resveratrol
  11. Maybe you are outgrowing it? Sucks you had it until 28. If you are still eating bagels I would not think it was the bread doing harm (although it probably wasn't helping). I'd think you would need to take out most wheat for that to have much effect.
  12. @Drizzler Excellent post. Follow his advice. It may not solve anything/everything, but it will not hurt.
  13. It all depends on the person. How much food you get with Vitamin D in it, how much sun you get, etc. I would recommend 6,000 IU for the average person. I believe most people to be deficient. The only way to know for sure is to get a 25-hydroxyvitamin D blood level check. Get your levels checked every few months. Always buy the D3 supplement form and get it in gel caps as it is better absorbed with fat. Vitamin D3 has been a staple for me for several years. One of the best supplements you can
