  1. I am dairy and gluten intolerant and know I should cut it out, but I look at people with clear glowing skin, stuffing their faces with cheeseburgers from McDonalds, and am extremely, extremely confused!!! Someone please explain this to me. Also, I was vegan and gf for 8 months, dancing everyday and STILL had spots. Please help me if you know anything about this subject. I was wondering if childhood diet has anything to do with it? When I was younger I used to eat so much melted cheese and fr

    Are All Grains Bad?

    People on this forum say "avoid grains" and i agree, but are all grains bad? I know some grains can contain gluten which does cause problems for me but what else is there in the grains like rice or buckwheat which make them bad for acne? If we don't take the GI of foods into account.
  3. I am currently taking the anti biotic doxycycline and I've been on it for 2 months now and nothing has reallyy changed, I find that my skin becomes itchy and inflamed sometimes, maybe more so when exposed to heat, going out in public, and when my beard starts to come in, i recently stopped eating any gluten and dairy because I've also had stomach issues in the past, I've been drinking more green tea and a probiotic. Is my anti biotic really helping? does anyone have similar skin and eliminated c

    Naturopathic Acne Journey

    So when I was 16, I decided to find the root cause of my acne. I was convinced it was masturbation within my first two weeks of self testing. So all the way up until I was almost 18, I was tormenting myself trying not to masturbate. I broke down and masturbated a lot. When I was 18, I researched, and remembered my severely unhealthy diet I had when I was little. Then I remembered how acne came when I was 11. It turned cystic when I was 12 and started masturbating, which is what threw me of
  5. I got a ALCAT food intolerance blood test that was sent to the path lab a few weeks ago and have been acting on it, so far, yes improvements. My nutritionist says it's really accurate and works and got it done herself and noticed big changes. However, I've been reading online that people say it's not accurate. Can anyone inform me?
  6. Hey everyone, I got my MRT food sensitivity results back about a month ago now. I have eliminated all yellow and all red foods. I have not been eating any other foods outside of the tested ones. I am still breaking out!! I also take Vitamin B5, green tea extract, vitamin d, zinc, and omega 3. Most of these supplements are to help with excess sebum. What else can I possibly do? I've tried everything at this point and losing hope
  7. This was brought up before, but I couldn't find any definitive and updated answers as to what the best way of testing for food allergies AND intolerances is, and what the options are for people living in the US in terms of service provides/ companies etc. I just found out that my insurance can cover most of the costs for allergy testing, so I figured I might as well get tested but I would also like to test for intolerances. I have tried several elimination diets, but I suspect that my biggest in
  8. Hello there, I am a longtime lurker and set up this account to share my story. I am a 30 year old female, and have been dealing with what I thought was hormonal, adult-onset acne for the past several years. I have an eating-disordered history, largely the result of attempting to avoid foods that seemed to trigger my acne. I have been vegetarian for 10 years, vegan most of those (including at present). I have a degree in holistic health, and was a raw foodist for a year. My acne went
  9. I am starting to wonder if citrus fruits have any affect on my acne. After I had some OJ, I woke up the next day with a pimple. Is there a difference between citrus and citric acid for acne? I found a chart of foods with the highest citric acid, but haven't found any with the highest citrus content. Does anyone have a chart for this? One fruit I am wondering about is raspberry. It has a pretty high citric acid content, but is not a citrus fruit.

    Acne and allergies

    Hello everyone, I for the most part have good skin. I started getting cystic acne starting i don't know when. I went to dermatologists and they would prescribe retin-a, tazorac, and aczone. Last year it took almost a whole year for retin-a to finally make a change. my skin was perfect. Until it wasn't. I got off it and my skin was doing great. Which made me happy cause I no longer want to take medication or use medicated creams. Now Im breaking out terribly on my cheeks. The lady that was doin
  11. i am currently on a low dosage of accutane (10 mg) and i will probally stop taking it in 1-2 month. i am sure that after i will finish taking it my skin will turn crazy oily again and my skin will go bad. i already noticed how my skin got abit oily after i lowered from 40 mg to 10 mg. so im desperate for a solution and i wanna try taking a food intolerance test and eliminate the bad foods for me, and see if it helps. i found out i can do a test for about 500$ for 200 different foods in s

    10/5/2012 Over One Year Later...

    From the album: Face the Facts

    Over one year later, and I'm still excited about how well avoiding certain foods (for me, tomato, avocado, grapefruit, safflower oil, cola, pumpkin + nightshades) and taking birth control has improved my complexion. I feel comfortable enough about my skin's resiliency to actually wear make-up now... thus the picture with make-up (eye shadow, eye liner, and lip color). For the record, I wash my face only once a day now, and I have been doing so for the most since over a year ago. It's funny, beca
  13. Disclaimer I have successfully healed my acne with the methods I will go on to describe. I do not claim that these methods will work for anyone else, however, I feel that I owe a lot to this forum, which has not only supported me throughout some difficult times, but its posters have provided me with much of the insight and information that has lead me to healing my acne. Finally, this post is not preaching that natural methods are the only route to take; and I do not judge those who choose to
