  1. Hi! This combo did clear up my skin better than anything I have used in the past. In the past six-ish months that I have used it, I have not had one cyst and have just had very small clogged pores and bits of congested skin. It's amazing, and my life has changed dramatically with this clearing. However, my doctor told me I need to stop the Doryx. As much anxiety and sorrow that this gives me, I am slowly lowering my dose. I started with taking half of a pill (Going from 200mg to 100mg) for one m
  2. Hi, This is my second time on Spiro. The first time, it worked great but I had to get off of it because I no longer had insurance and I wanted to try holistic methods. None of the holistic methods I tried for almost 2 years worked, although they have forced me into amazing healthy eating habits and a passion for health and wellness. Anyway, I am on my second round of spiro. I am on 100mg. I have been on Doryx for the past three months along with the spiro, and my doctor is now tapering
  3. Diet is not the reason for everyone's acne. I tried for almost three years to cure my acne with diet and herbs. I went on green juice cleanses, water cleanses under the supervision of a doctor, no dairy, soy, or gluten, I eliminated all citrus, I tried the apple diet, I change my pillow cases every day. I tried hormone balancing herbs (vitex, chasteberry, DIM, etc) for six months, I did a parasite cleanse, I tried coffee enemas, I went on the all apple diet for three days, I drink green smoothie
  4. hey! It's been awhile since I've heard from you. I tried to send you a message and it would not allow me to. How are you?

      Hey! Don't you have me on FB? I thought I added you a while ago or you didn't have one?

      And I am fine!! how are you?

  5. I Meant to make the above post as a reply to you in hopes you'll see and answer my question. Yes, it really keeps for one week as long as you keep it refrigerated, although it can get a bit gritty. I generally only keep mine for four days though. It doesn't taste less acidic to you? The acid is what really bothers me in my coffee, thus the cold brewed method tastes far better to me. What was your experience regarding preservation of the taste?
  6. I'm 95% clear now, and I'm at that magical time of the month in my cycle. Usually, this is the time I break out the most! This is the diet I follow. It's not necessarily all great for acne, nor will it work for everyone. But after three years of trying to clear my acne through nutrition, I've found this to work best: 5-6AM: -7oz cold-pressed black coffee. Cold pressed coffee is the best, in my opinion. It doesn't give me caffeine jitters, donesn't stain my teeth like conventional coffe
  7. I've given up coffee so many times in my pursuit to clear skin. However, for me, I find that drinking a cold-pressed coffee works wonders. Cold-pressed coffee isn't something available at Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks, but is so easy to make yourself. It's less acidic, better for your teeth, and contains more antioxidants than ordinary coffee. It is so smooth. I drink it black and find it very flavorful and delicious. Ordinary coffee black is more difficult for me to consume because of the high aci
  8. I don't usually do this (not ever, actually), but I gotta say: you're gorgeous, that guy with the unpronounceable username is absolutely correct. And that fact you're vegan makes you even more attractive! :)

      Awh, thank you very much! :) You're also a vegan, I take it?

      Absolutely, but for ethical/environmental reasons; I would be vegan if it weren't healthy! I just see no other way to live but to not harm other sentient beings. But I have to admit I'm not completely dogmatic - let's say I'm 99% vegan and 1% hypocrite. What about you? Is it health or ideals for you?

      Absolutely for the animals. I often think that eating meat may clear my skin, but I'd never. I've been vegetarian since I was 11 and vegan for the past two years.

  9. I'm surprised no one mentioned quinoa. It's an amazing source of vegan protein, and very easily prepared. Also, smoothies with hemp seeds for protein and chia seeds to balance your omega 3 fatty acids would be a nice, filling breakfast or lunch, perhaps with some blueberries for antioxidants and throw in some greens as well. Just don't go super heavy on the gluten grains and white rice, as that's a surefire way to be an unhealthy vegetarian (Which I had done for quite awhile..) If you have an
  10. What I ate today: (All 100% Organic) 530AM Cucumber, spinach, celery, parsley juice (32oz fresh pressed & organic) 6AM 16oz blueberries 730 AM Fresh pressed 14oz Carrot Juice & 14oz of fresh pressed beet, basil, apple & kale juice 11AM: Kale salad with raw lemon vinagrette, blend of cucumber, spinach, onion, green peppers, apple cider vinegar, garlic, mint & cumin (Sooooooooooo delicious, oh my gosh) & coconut milk Noon: Lemon & Turmeric Juice Mangos 2PM Collard veg
  11. Everyday new "experts" come out with their opinions and their research on which diet is the healthiest and most nutritious. We should read all of the varying opinions and well-researched theories along with the evidence, and then make our own decision. We need to do what feels best for the health and longevity of our bodies, and make sure we are ingesting things that are meant to be REAL food. Not chemicals, nothing prepacked, nothing you can put in your basement for years in preparation for the
  12. If you're getting fresh, raw coconut milk, which would be an unpasteriuzed blend of the meat and the water of the coconut, it is amazing for skin. I often have some fresh coconut milk when I can afford it, as it's very expensive, to get in some necessary saturated fats and for it's skin benefits. When I have a bad breakout or am feeling a bit mentally fuzzy, coconut milk really helps and has so many essential electrolytes.
  13. Try replacing the brown rice with quiona? It takes much less time to cook, has more protein (with all 9 essential amino acids), and more micronutrients. Also, try to get more leafy greens in your diet. Maybe try a green smoothie in the morning (Blend fruits and leafy greens. There are a lot of threads on this forum with different yummy combinations)
  14. Yerba mate gave me such bad acne also!!!! Also, any caffeine in general but yerba mate the worst. ug. And I bought some in bulk! Also, soy breaks me out for certain. I'm pretty sure about dairy and gluten, but not positive. Gave them up anyhow.. there seems to be something else also, maybe rice? Trying to figure it out now..
