  2. http://ezinearticles.com/?Omega-3-Suppleme...&id=5510105 I stopped taking omega 3's because well, it didn't "cure my acne," being silly and naive, just thought it wasn't working. But now I know that not getting enough vitamins and minerals from diet, and the right fat balance (too much bad bad fats, and bad bad hormones injected from cows and other meats). Oil, is not a natural substance when you think about it, it's man manipulated! But not all oils are evil coconut and olive oil are go
  3. For those of you worried about your Omega-3 intake, here's something to ease your mind. Did you know vegetables also contains Omega-3s? Here's a short list of common vegetables and their Omega-3 : Omega-6 amounts. I'll probably update this list with more foods. Most people say strive for a ratio of 1:2 Omega-3s to Omega-6s, but anywhere from 1:1 to 1:4 is generally acceptable. All Omega-3/6 amounts are in Milligrams (mg) and a serving size of 1 cup. Omega-3 : Omega-6 Left side : Right side
  4. I've been asking my mom for awhile to buy me fish oil but for some reason, she seems hesitant to buy me some. So, instead, she bought me Barlean's Organic Oils Essential Woman capsules. She only lets me take one a day (the recommended amount is 3-9 per day) because these capsules are meant for women ages 18+ and I think she's afraid I'll have some weird reaction to it since I'm still underage. I've been taking it for 3 days so far and I haven't seen much improvement, but I'm still going to take
  5. Hi, i have mild acne, well not really acne, i have LOTS of clogged pores.. i would say about 70-80% of my face is clogged, i tried almost every product and even visited a dermatolagist who put me on anti biotic pills and trecteinal cream. It took about 3 weeks to see improvement, but i quit going because it wasn't worth the trip, so i began using apricot scrub from St.Ives, WORST IDEA EVER!!!! I was close to flawless skin till i used this, this is where my whole entire face became clogged..
  6. So I added Flaxseed and Almonds to my diet recently. I needed to gain some weight so I thought fats such as almonds would be a healthy and tasty method. But looking at almonds, it has about 3400 mg of Omega 6 and like no omega-3 (per ounce) So, I also found flaxseeds which contains about 6500mg omega 3 and 1650 mg of omega 6. So i decided I would eat about a 1:1 ratio of Almonds to Flaxseeds. And I am wondering how much I can eat, like aslong as I keep it a 1:1 ratio, would I be able to eat as m
  7. Hi, it's me again Since my last post here, I've been trying a few things. Here is a short list with everything I have tried (nutrition wise) so far: Strict low carb for three months, vegetarian, vegan with only whole wheat. Avoiding milk/cheese/dairy, avoiding oranges, avoiding fruits altogether, no added sugar, no fruit juices. Drinking lots of tea, changing the pillow/towel on it every day. Not masturbating for three weeks. Drinking only water. Changing cooking oils to more saturated or
  8. The cure is in your diet, to cure your acne you need to change it completely to the diet of those that existed before agricultural practices began, if you look back in history how come there aren't any people with acne? obesity? Any chronic or degenerative disease? I have the answer it's called the paleo diet. If your interested in learning about the diet message me, or there's google. I have beeen paleoing for a very long time and I don't have to worry about pimples anymore I used to have sever
  9. Hey all. I've been on this forum for a long time, and have read alot of the information about low gi diet, lectins, sleep, etc etc. I have been extremely strict about my diet for the past year now with a month of slip up in between when I had to have surgery after my appendix ruptured. My acne has been mildly under control, but I just can't get past about 85% clear no matter what I try. When I went to China this summer, I repeatedly had food allergy problems, so I started to break out big time
  10. Hello everybody, First, I would like to state that I am in no way affiliated to DKR or whatever. But when I like something I want to review it and to give motivation and support to you all. About me... I am 26 yo, living in France, and acne has always been a burden for me. It started at 15 yo, getting quickly nodular cystic acne, and my whole face was covered. I did not care at this time. I was enjoying myself, blowing the zits, and everything. My mother brought me to a derm in order to ge
  11. Hi guys! My skin is quite sensitive and I've become a bit fed up with all the chemicals and soaps I've been using to clear up my breakouts/ As a result, I've recently started the water only regime for my skin + taking 2 omega-3 pills everyday. Is anyone else on this regime? I've been wondering if washing should be followed by a moisturiser? (e.g Neutrogena sensitive skin lotion) Or should I just stick with water only? Flaking has been an issue for me ever since I started the r
  12. As of yesterday, I've begun taking 50 mg of Zinc and two 445 mg capsules of Omega-3s twice a day. Will I see some results in a few months?
  13. Linoleic acid is a vital component in normal sebum that does what it is supposed to: Protect the skin. Skin/sebum in people (and other mammals) prone to acne and other skin problems have been found to be deficient in linoleic Acid. Sebum deficient in linoleic acid is hard and sticky and clogs pores. It looks greasy and has fewer protective and anti-inflammatory properties. Key points: Acne and other problem prone skin (in people and animals) are lacking in linoleic acid. Linoleic acid is a c
  14. I just had a hunch that I am lacking Omega 6 fatty acids, so I started taking Evening Primrose Oil (3-4 g/day). I think it's going to improve my skin as well as my overall health. One article that is interesting on this topic: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/185294.php Lack Of Omega-6 Fatty Acid Linked To Severe Dermatitis Main Category: Dermatology Also Included In: Nutrition / Diet; Genetics Article Date: 14 Apr 2010 - 1:00 PDT University of Illinois scientists have learned that
  15. I am 21 years old. I took Accutane for approximately 4 months from January to May (40mg for 1st month & 60mg for the rest) and decided to stop due to the onset of hair loss and dry eye symptoms that came about suddenly. I do wear contact lenses. I was diagnosed with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction from an ophthalmologist, on top of having inadequate tear production. I had no dry eye symptoms before taking Accutane. I am currently and have been ,since the beginning of May, experiencing the f
  16. I was checking out this Cod Liver Oil http://www.greenpasture.org/products/fermented-oil/1039 since I have read a lot about the benefits of fermented versus normal cod liver oil. Does nayone have any knowledge or experience in the subject? only take one serving right now of carlsons, so the price of this isnt really an issue since it will last a while. Thanks in advance for any advice or information. Apparently this is how they used to make "in the day", because my grandma told me they used t
  17. I have had a very positive experience with my new regimen and wanted to share it with other acne troubled people. First let me say that I have tried most of the salicyclic acid and benzoil peroxide treatments out there and had no success with either one of them. I had a 15 years battle with acne and nothing I tried really worked. Anyway, I recently started to focus on diet and finally got improvements. My skin hasn't looked as good since I was 12. I am taking OMEGA-3 supplements (molecularly di
  18. Hey everybody. Im still trying to find meat that doesnt break me out, so I can get the fat I need on my candida/paleo diet. So far I got the following "safe" stuff: Chicken breast without skin Turkey Breast without skin Omega-3 Freerange eggs (3-4 each week or so) Coconut oil Olive Oil What other stuff should I try out, and what seems relative safe? Things I cant eat: Lamb (breaks me out) Red meat Normal white eggs Flax seed oil Salmon (im not sure about this one, because I ate quite alot
  19. I don't know how much this has been talked about on these forums, but the skin is an organ; organs are kept healthy by ingesting that which is good for us. People seem to believe that the skin can be made healthy by external treatments JUST BECAUSE the skin happens to be what is viewed externally (rather than a crustaceous exoskeleton, although that would be cool), but our skin still obtains nutrients most readily (and actively) from the INSIDE. For those of you reading this who suffer from ac
  20. Arrggh.. Fuck. First of all I want to apologize my english. Okay, well I have had acne for about 4 years now. I'm too lazy to tell every little detail of my journey. but I've seen it all from super acne with gigantic pimples covering the whole face to milder acne blablablabla. At the moment I'm taking antibiotics (tetralysal) couple times a week (slowly trying to change it to natural products, b-vitamin, lactoferrin, zinc, omega-3, etc.) and using Avicid 0,025% cream (changing it to Clindoxyl).
  21. I take 3 softgels a day of 1000 mg fish oil, which is an omega-3. Should I be taking an omega-6 supplement, like evening primrose oil, to balance it out? I don't know what the proper balance would be. I've heard that an imbalance can promote inflammation, which causes skin cells to clump together and jam pores. I also know that it's more important to take omega-3s because they're anti-inflammatory. So, I don't know if I should be taking evening primrose oil with my fish oil. I don't know i
  22. I've recently started taking Fish Oil Supplements (Omega-3's) and have noticed that I have had diarrhea, and stomach cramps since I started taking them. I have a very sensitive stomach, so I've only been taking 1 capsule a day, with food, instead of the recommended two. I am taking the brand Nordic Naturals which I've heard is one of the best on the market. I don't want to stop taking them, but I can't handle the stomach upset. Is anyone else having this problem? Any advice? Thanks!
  23. Hmm, filling out the description has made me think that maybe I'm taking too high a dose. Or that maybe I need to lose weight Heh, anyhow! Days 1-9 So today, I will take my ninth accutane pill. Honestly, I don't know if my skin has gotten better, worse, or stayed the same since I started. I feel like it has pretty much stayed the same because I still have quite a few pimples. I'm a bit worried that this is actually from a super-expensive moisturizer that my dermatologist sold me. I have neve
  24. I find that when I use all natural products over the drugstore/topical brands that I avoid any irritation/side effects such as flakiness, irritation, extreme dryness, itching and redness. Plus back then when people didn't have the luxury of being able to choose from SO MANY acne products out there, they used natural/homemade treatments to maintain clear, healthy skin. And while topical brands can tend to stop working over time these natural treatments never do! Also when using natural treatmen
  25. I have delt with acne for the last 5 years and have tried many different treatments, mostly natural ways to clear acne. Here is my regiment that has cleared my face about 95%. Morning -1000mg Vitamin C tablet for immune system and healing processes. -50mg of Zinc tablet also for immune system and new cell production. -1000mg of any Omega-3 oil gel tablet, could be fish oil or flax seed oil. -Use a clean washrag, wet with cold water and press onto face holding it in place for about a minute.
