  1. It's been a while since I was on this! Anyways I'm currently healing heal my leaky gut/ digestive issues/ acne and was wondering if there is anything else I should start doing or incorporating into my diet. My diet looks like this; 2 cups of bone broth per day 2 probiotic capsules (only started a few weeks ago) 1 tablespoon of pysillium husks each morning hlf teasp of triphala and neem after meals 1-2 allicin tablets per day Gluten free sourdough bread Gluten free cereals (ie- Buckwhea
  2. So I get these days where I get extremely depressed for three days and just lose my appetite, mostly when I look in the mirror. Should I go on Accutane already? I'm in my 20's and I'm real against the drug and don't know if my stomach could handle it, but the acne is hurting me badly body wide in a way. Do low doses really work that well? Any low dose logs of like 10 mg that people actually completed? Thanks..
  3. Hi, my name is PJ, I'm 24, and I've had severe acne and anxiety for the past 10 years, since I was 14. I've been documenting my healing journey on YouTube for the past 9 months. - http://www.youtube.com/user/HolisticHealthJ - I want to share my story with the acne.org community. If you're a person who feels like you've done everything to try and cure your acne, you've tried all the creams and topicals, you eat really healthy, you get sunshine, you exercise, you do all the things the health guru'
  4. I've recently read quite a bit about people on acne.org finding out their acne was caused by a food allergy. I looked this up and it seems that dairy allergies are especially common. I really think this could be related for me, especially because both of my parents have dairy allergies; not severe, but still. So now I just have some questions about the actual testing for food allergies: -I'm 13; they can still test people my age for food allergies, right? -How exactly do they test you? -Do
  5. Hello all, I found out my long term battle with cystic acne was due to food allergies/tolerances. I'm 32 now and I've had cystic acne since 14. I call it the CENT diet. I don't eat Chocolate, eggs, nuts, or tomatoes. I used to have 3 to 5 large painful cyst on my face at a time. While now I have tons of scarring, I don't get anymore painful cysts. I listened to NPR one day and this DR said if you have adult acne more than likely it is a food allergy. It took me a while to figure it out
  6. Hello everyone~ I made this account just to share this and another post I'll be writing up soon. So I am allergic to wheat, soy, and peanuts and am also lactose intolerant. So basically it is inevitable that I accidentally eat something I can't. Well two days ago I ate 85% dark chocolate with soy lecithin and something else with soy oil. I heard soy lecithin is ok for people with soy allergies, but it turns out the minority actually can't eat the oil or lecithin (check it out if you have a so
  7. Hello all, Just joined this sight because I wanted to get an idea of what the "general populace" of those who've dealt w/ similar issues thought. Let's see if I can sum up my experiences this past year (almost) without going into the emotional mess of it all, while also keeping it clear and concise. Here it goes: I'm 18, almost 19. Period started when I was 16 and was irregular (talking 2-5 months without one) and always light and around 1-3 days. Never really had hormonal acne and only had th
  8. Hi, this is my first time posting but I feel like going this community is a good idea. To start off I am a 20 y/o college student, i have struggled with mild to moderate acne since I was about 14. There have been times when it has been almost nothing and times when it has been cystic. I joined this site today because over the past 6 months I have really tried to get to the bottom of this problem, I feel as if I should be growing out of this problem and who knows I might, I am still only 20 years
  9. Hi all! This is my first post in this forum. I've recently just quit The DK Regimen, and I'm not bashing it because it really did kill my acne, but my skin never really got used to it. A really horrible reaction caused me to throw in the towel. After much trial and error with more topicals than I can count and an incomplete course of Accutane (I was not an ideal candidate because of the medications I take for bipolar disorder) I've decided to really look deeper into my body and give the nat
  10. First time posting and having trouble navigating the forums so I am starting a new thread. I'm hoping to find current info on my trifecta of skin issues complicated by systemic immune issues. I am female, 58, and have had mild to moderate acne off and on since I was a young teen. I have been treated over the years with lots of different topical meds and also oral antibiotics. I have sebaceous hyperplasia ( I'm going to call this SH) that is indeed getting worse as I get older. I ha
  11. Is there a specific blood or saliva test which can pinpoint what food allergies you have? Or intolerances or whatever term. I suspect certain foods that I already avoid but I think I'd get more piece of mind knowing for sure...and are these reliable. so far the foods I know cause break outs are Dairy, even small amounts Avocado Certain oils for frying/ fried food Too much sugar, more than a few pieces of candy or a cupcake or a brownie MSG and instant flavor granules Ones I suspect are
