  1. So I recently started a low carb diet, per my naturopaths instructions. Right now I am eating meat (any kind) and non starchy vegetables. I also eat some questionable foods that my naturopath said would probably be ok. I don't drink milk, but I do consume home made kefir for probiotics. I also consume alot of nuts/seeds hummus and dark chocolate. I don't think the chocolate is a huge deal since it is not sweet at all, maybe 20 grams of sugar per 100 ounce bar (I don't eat a whole bar every day).
  2. I am on probiotics, drink tons of water, eat healthy, exercise, blah blah blah and my bowel movements are still out of wack! Any suggestions on what to eat/do???
  3. Need fast feedback regarding new acne product, before I order. If you can spare one minute to review this product I would appreciate the feedback. I don’t have the money to be wasted on another acne treatment that is not effective. www.probiotic-lab.com
  4. I'm currently taking 1 lymecycline capsule a day. Over the years of taking antibiotics I havent really had any side effects, apart from sometimes having a bit of stomach ache 1/2 hour after taking them. I bought a tub of acidophillius probiotics today from a health store, theres 3 billion healthy bacteria in each capsule. Do you think this will help combat my stomach aches through taking antibiotics??? Has any one here had success with it? Its not a major deal as the stomach aches dont last fore

  7. Hey guys and gals. I haven't posted on here in years, because I've been on accutane, and it has 100% cleared me up. A quick story on me, and then my dilemma / question on to why I am back seeking advice. I took a regular course of Accutane ( 80 mg's a day for 2 months ) and my acne went away ( I weigh 185 pounds, so thats a good MG amount. ) However, when I was off accutane, it came back about 3 weeks later. I did another strong 2 month course, to only find the same results. I started to expe
  8. I'm a 26 years old male, I have been suffering of bacne for 6 years, also I have acne on my chest and some on my arms, I have tried several antibiotics and several treatments, like isotretinoin aka accutane (I couldn't stand the side effects), antibiotics (Clindamycin, Erythromycin, tetracyclines), Benzoyl peroxide, topical retinoids, salicylic acid, azelaic acid. Well the only thing that actually works for me is bactrim, I used it for a year and when I stopped the acne just came back. However I

    Sad Story

    Im 22 right now, and my acne is under control. Its been a long battle and ive gone through a lot (including an intensive accutane course). Acne runs in my family, but I got it far worse than any of my siblings or parents had it. It started sophmore year in high school. It was severely severe, like the worst i have ever seen. Huge cysts, pustules, papules, blackheads, everything! I had many derm. appointments and tried everything, until I finally gave in and a course of accutane followed by
  10. well, every time i eat dairy, i break out around my mouth area. Being the dairy love I am, this really sucks. so, i was reading online earlier and found that probiotics may help with dairy digestion. normally, it's hard for the body to digest the lactose sugar in milk, but probiotics have lactase, which somehow makes it easier to digest.. I'm going to start taking the acidopholus and incorporate some dairy into my diet, then tell you guys how it goes.
  11. So I started taking Mino 3 months ago and am now going into my 4th month. I want to STOP taking the mino because I know it's bad for my body, has serious potential side effects, and eventually i'll become resistant to it. My acne was mildly moderate when I started the antibiotic. I was put on it because I was getting 1-2 cysts a month on my right cheekbone in the same place and I just wanted some relief from the damn cysts. the antibiotic has stopped about 4-5 potential cysts in the

    the cure

    Never mind the masturbating, i know the real reason we have acne and from what ive just done probally the cure for the most if not all people, Its because we are having digestive problems even though we dont know it some peoples bodies are just not effective and getting rid of waste fast enough or complete enough. This is just one half of the reason the other im afraid is candida our diets cause this to manifests punch holes through our intetinal walls and what do you know toxins enter the blood

    Plaque on teeth

    Has anyone else hear had a problem with plaque on there teeth? My gums have been bleeding for a while when i brushed them but i went to the dentist just before Christmas and he removed all of the plaque. I ate abit rubbish after that with stuff like sweets, chocolate etc and the plaque started to come back. I went to my hygienist just after new year and she got rid of everything and cleaned them up. I noticed the bleeding reduced alot whilst brushing, they only ever really did it whilst flossi
  14. Hi there I will tell you my symptoms and what I am planning to do about them. Could you please give me an idea of whether I am thinking along the right lines? I am 37, and for the past 15 years or more, I have been having progressively worse digestive problems - mainly a feeling of bloating and heaviness after eating that now seems to be triggered by almost any food, even in small amounts, and is with me almost constantly. There is also flatulance and belching quite a lot, and sometimes diar

    College, supplements, etc

    I have a bunch of questions so I will just make one big topic. 1) I am going to be a freshmen in college very soon and I was wondering how people maintained a healthy diet. I don't think I will have anyway to cook for myself besides a microwave and am worried about what I am going to do. 2) What is the best quality probiotic supplement? 3) What is a good fiber supplement? If I take soluble fiber will it absorb nutrients? I am mainly looking for the benefit of cholesterol being absorbed. 4

    I eliminated milk and cheese from my diet a week ago, but still kept Activia yogurt as a regular part of my diet. I've heard that the probiotic bacteria helps with acne, but wouldn't the presence of IGF-1 in it cancel out any benefits of it? I've seen so much contradicting information when it comes to yogurt, any help would be appreciated.
  17. I was just wondering why some people take vitamins separately instead of just taking a high quality whole food multivitamin. Taking a multivitamin is convenient and ensures that you're getting all the most essential vitamins and minerals, and the one I take (Garden of Life Vitamin Code Men's) covers much more than that (Digestive enzymes, some probiotics, fruit and veggie powders, etc). It is also specifically structured for men (Ladies, there's a women's one too lol). If I feel I need more o

    Probiotics in Dairy?...

    If I'm trying to up my intake of probiotics, and probiotics are found in dairy products..what do I do if I cut dairy from my diet? I take PB 8 but would like to get good bacteria from my food as well.
  19. Well, there's one observation I've made, although obvious. Those of us that have been blessed/cursed with Acne, most have attempted to clear our skin by changing from a regular and/or unhealthy routine to a very strict and healthy hygiene/diet/supplement/exercise routine. Acne or not, we're getting in pretty damn good shape otherwise. We wake up with a breakout and sometimes forget just how great we're doing in many other aspects of our health. -Matt- I was at one point a lazy drug-alcohol
  20. Are you supposed to take a probiotic at the same time, so there wouldn't be any damage to your body? If so, What probiotics should I take? Im 20 and I used to be on doxy for two months then I ran out of the product. My skin was controlled for a while but recently the zits are coming back. Today, I took Sprolone and Im afraid my body is in jeopardy.
  21. What's the best way to get the most essential probiotics? If it's something generally and vague like yogurt, give a specific brand.
  22. Any site about getting rid of candida tells you to take probiotics after the candida is gone. Why is this? As long as you aren't consuming something that would kill the probiotics, wouldn't it be beneficial to have them inside you too? Or does the candida make the probiotics unable to survive?
  23. I have recently added Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Zinc to my daily vitamin pile. Wondering what others are good. Thinking about adding Spirulina for overall health benefits. Also Sam-E because I'm coming off of anxiety meds and am a little irritable... I already take the following: Multivitamin Fish oil Vitamin B-12 Vitamin C Vitamin E Probiotics L-Lysine Calcium
  24. Hi Just wanted to re post the general part of what I've been doing. I think the other version will just take too long to read for most people. Now I'm finally acne free. In summary what I have been doing: 1. No more coffee in my diet. 2. No more dairy in my diet. 3. No more diet softdrinks in my diet. 4. No more refined flour in my diet, and I am greatly reducing the amount of bread products I am eating. 5. I bought a juicer, and have my lemon juice every single morning first thing. 6. I have
