  1. Bare with me. Its a long story over 8-10 years of knowledge but I hope this helps someone. #Skin RE-CLOGGING ITSELF endlessly My acne slowly slowly started when I was 12 and atm im 22 (first with bumps and pus filled ones and at 20 years oled they were deep big under skin cysts- it was a stressful time w bad relationship/ I ate very much processed food and oils and dairy). At 16 I was on birth control for half a year which didnt help acne and my whole body hated it (depression, low energy, br
  2. I've just completed my first week of Clarivis, 90mg/day. The past two days, I've been experiencing some mild/moderate stomach cramps, bloating, and gas. This is not normal for me. Is this likely related to the Clarivis? Should I be concerned? (I do have concerns about developing IBS.) If this is a known symptom, will it be persistent? I have been taking an apparently strong probiotic from Whole Foods, but I don't get the impression that it's working very well. Can anyone recommend something that
  3. Today I saw my doctor (integrative) for my ongoing hormonal & digestive issues. She believes I have systemic inflammation and all the symptoms for leaky gut (this I already figured out). She gave me a hypoallergenic diet to follow for 3 weeks, which contains some fruit. I wasn't sure if the fruit included would be ok, since I have issues with histamines. She also said I have to ROTATE foods every day - eat different foods from the list each day otherwise I might develop intolerance for foods
  4. I thought I would never post here, but I guess I need to vent. I’m not a native speaker so I’m sorry for all my grammar mistakes. I am 18 year old guy (19 in 1 month) and my acne problems started in November 2012 (I was 17). I started to get more and more pimples. I searched on my local forums and bought couple of medicaments, but they didn’t work any good. So in January 2013 I decided to go to my Dermatologist. She gave me some antibiotics, which worked for a couple of months and then they wer
  5. Hi everyone, Has anyone had success with l-glutamine? I would like to address my leaky gut, and my naturopath recommended Designs for Health - L-Glutamine Powder 250 gms. Has anyone tried it, or other glutamine supplements? I'm not sure whether it's best to take it on an empty stomach or after a meal, and there are no specific directions on the box.
  6. I haven't really had the need to return back to Acne.org for a few years when I got over acne. When I was 18, I broke out all over my face and struggled with finding the right skincare products and taking regular trips to the dermatologist. Since then, I've only had mild breakouts and have kept them under control. All of a sudden, I'm experiencing a whole other new kind of breakout: adult cystic acne. For the last 2-3 months, I've been breaking out in cysts. They are large, painful, under-th
  7. My story Ive had acne for around 3 years I'd say. Im 24 and have never really experienced acne as a teen at all. Problem areas from day one has been cystic forehead acne, specifically above eyebrow area. I have tried countless skin care products and spent a decent amount doing so, including a topical antibiotic from the doctor. After research I realised that my problem was my digestion and it definitely made sense. The problem was always internal. I had tried cod liver oil and herbal remedies
  8. A few days ago, I decided to diversify my diet by adding some meat. I've been a vegetarian for 16 years now. I was strict for 14 years, and 2 years ago I started eating some fish. At first, I had some stomach pains but now I'm used to it. Today I had a turkey burger (all white meat, organic, no additives) and took a digestive enzyme capsule before it but I still experienced some stomach pain. I have also been eating ham for a few days with no issue. Any tips on how to gradually incorporate mea
  9. I need to express my feelings. I keep most of the shit inside so my only ways of expressing is by writing in my diary or typing. I seem to be getting really annoyed. Recently, I have been researching like a mad woman, honestly. Ive been reaserching endlessley ENDLESSLEY about how the gut affects our digestive system and how THAT affects our skin and acne. Honestly there is so so so much information on this site and on other sites about it, I would actually encourage and infact advise ever
  10. Has anyone tried Edible Earth's Digestive Detoxicant and Trace Mineral Supplement? My acupuncturist gave it to me a month ago to clear out toxins and ease my digestion but I was nervous to use it. Basically, you dilute a bit of the clay in water and drink it throughout the day or at night, always on an empty stomach so that only toxins can be pulled out. I was nervous about a detox breakout, but the clay is supposed to absorb the toxins and then gets pushed through the bowels. Well, today I saw
  11. First, I'm not a doctor or a dermatologist, this natural way of getting acne clear is based on my personal trial and error experiences and on a lot of reading on this subject. I am 28 yrs old and suffered from mild to moderate acne for about 10 years. In the last year I have been clear by using 5 "rules" which I will outline below. The only time I broke out was because I broke one of these rules. This system works great for me so I'm sharing it hoping it will help some of you as well. Im ref
  12. I know food affects my acne, but I'm not sure how. It seems like if I eat a lot of anything I break out, and if I don't eat very much, I break out less. So that lead me to try a low glycemic load diet, which helps, but isn't enough. If I eat a lot of food, even if it is still in low glceymic load meals, I break out more than I would if I ate less. I can cut out certain foods and see if that helps, but I really don't think I have an allergy or anything. And if I did that, I would lose weight,
  13. Today I started using betaine HCL. I got my directions on how to use it here: http://www.modernherbalist.com/betaine.html How to use it: Basically you just take one pill at the beginning of the first meal. If you don't feel a slight burning sensation, then take two pills at the beginning of the second meal. Keep increasing the number of pills until you feel the heat in your stomach. Once you feel it, decrease the dosage by one pill and use that many until you feel the slight burning again, th
  14. So I've read some posts from people claiming their acne does better when they lay off the water with meals: 20-30 minutes before and 1 hour after seems to be pretty commonplace. But is drinking water with meals really a bad thing? I find if I avoid water 30 minutes before and 1 hour after, then DURING meals I get increasingly hungry and usually overeat. Mayo Clinic posted a Q and A on the subject: Question Water after meals: Does it disturb digestion? Does drinking water during or afte
  15. Hello. I have a very bad problem, and I don't know what to do. I am a male, 23, and this has been happening to me since I was about 10. Whenever I eat basically any food I develop huge, very painful and ugly white pus filled pimples. Certain foods trigger it worse than others. For example, the worst offenders are high fructose corn syrup, anything with soybean oil / corn oil, stevia / artificial sugars, natural colors / flavors, corn starch.... Basically, I cannot eat anything outside of my hous
  16. Edit: This thread started out about the ZAG enzyme but it's full of info on lectins, digestive tract health and which lectins harm it and what heals it, cooking methods that reduce lectins and food/nutrient combinations that reduce damage. Not to mention info about the enzymes and other factors involved in normal exfoliation of skin cells that doesn't clog pores. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  17. Another reason behind increasing food allergies: imbalanced gut flora and lack of good bacteria to help with proper digestion of food. Of course, we here on this forum already know all this, but now there's scientific research to verify these connections. This particular study (link below) suggests that the good bacteria that antibiotics kill, such as clostridia, can act as a barrier between the allergen and the bloodstream and therefore prevent allergic/ histamine reactions. A lot of people
  18. As an acne sufferer for the past 20 years I finally found an explanation/ cure that's worth looking into. Acne is the result when Our body uses the skin as the last resort to eliminate waste (toxins, germs, any other unwanted stuff). That is, our body has tried to eliminate the waste/toxins through the usual channels and we have not allowed it. Our body's immune system has a few ways to eliminate germs and any unwanted harmful stuff by Sneezing, cold, fever, loose bowels. Some people will
  19. I was going to post this to the hormonal forum, but it might help more people here. There are old threads about this topic. I read a while ago that symptoms of estrogen dominance can include allergies and increased histamines. Since for me, my food intolerances are created by improper digestion and high histamines rather than specific foods, I was trying to find what caused all my issues. After some discussions on the hormonal forum a while back, I decided to try DIM along with my usual suppleme
