I've been suffering with accutane side effects for 24 years and have finally come across what I think might be a possible cure. I was always trying to detoxify the drug assuming it was still in my body, but from what I've read alot of the persistent problems with accutane are the fact that it alters your gene expression. I've just recently come across a supplement called rna drops which apparently is supposed to correct your RNA. This sounds like the sort of thing that would correct gene expression. I haven't tried it yet but I will, I just thought I'd share this for anyone else interested. It was developed by Dr Carolyn Dean and has lot of really good testimonials, not from accutane users but even so, it sounds like an amazing product.
Sounds interesting... Mind sharing your side effects? I got off accutane 2 years ago and still have a red face and severe facial flushing that never went away. Any experience with that? Know any more about this rna-fixer?
I got off accutane two years ago and have side effects. The worst being a red face and severe, debilitating facial flushing and blushing. It's terrible. How do you go about detoxing the accutane? Do you think that if I properly detoxed then I could reverse and get rid of the facial flushing?
Looking for some advice to deal with extremely itchy skin. I have used proactive skincare system for years, and EVERYTIME I stop using it, my forehead and orbital/eyebrow area breaks out in rash like acne, and itches like crazy, and is very oily right in the center. I now know that proactiv is toxic for many reasons. I feel like the benzoyl peroxide has made my skin so harshly addicted to it, and this time I refuse to use it anymore. I have had issues with candida and parasites and an imbalanced gut flora, due to 2 years of birth control from age 18 to 20,(and also I ate the standard American diet up until getting very sick at age 20, was also a C section baby and was only breast fed for a month...so I know my gut flora was never in great shape) and I stopped taking bc at that point and threw myself into the world of holistic medicine. I've cleaned up my diet a lot in the last 3 years (I am now 23) and even though I still struggle with acne and dandruff, my digestion has improved a lot. I no longer have to take a bunch of HCL pills. I have liver flushed on and off but have never stuck to it due to my hectic work schedule. no more excuses this time. I suspect it could be demodex mites, or maybe I am having a reaction to my cats (although I have had cats my entire life) but I Think maybe the flea dander and excretions may be a problem (cats aren't infested by any means but they probably have a few. So, whatever the cause may be, I KNOW that if I do enough liver flushes, parasite cleanse, bowel and kidney cleanse, it will build my immunity up to handle whatever is giving me this reaction. I am currently taking 1200mg of SYNERGY WHOLE FOOD vitamin C, 2,000mg of MSM with chlorophyll, cod liver oil, and a therapeutic strength probiotic. I recently started taking MSM in the last few weeks, and the rash acne has gotten worse, and I have also started using a demodex face wash, does anyone think that it's getting worse because it's working? I know that can happen. I just want some pointers. I follow the paleo diet but not perfectly. Should be noted that I also have eye floaters, I'm thinking it takes such a long time to balance the gut flora, I've read if you have a candida overgrowth you are more prone to demodex mites, acne, and eye floaters. I am healing my candida, not by killing it, but through probiotics and liver flushing. Any advice is appreciated!
Make sure you have 2-3 bowel movements every day. Triphala powder in juice if you are constipated. Stop the msm until your bowels are moving more regularly.
Start saunas a few times/week. Toss all your skin care products. The rule of thumb is if you wouldn't eat it don't put it on your skin. Don't bathe every day or if you do don't use soap or use only castille olive oil soap.
Rethink the paleo diet unless it is working 100% for you.
Coconut oil or egg yolks maybe.
google blood type diet, ayurvedic diet.
Concentrate on your bowel not liver for now. More parasite cleansing/ coffee enemas.
Colostrum, proteolytic enzymes or papayas and pineapples
Thank you for the advice, I have been having trouble with constipation and I take natural senna laxatives. coffee enemas and any kind of enema seem to make the the constipation worse. I can't afford to go to a sauna, I work at Walgreens and what money I do make I spend on high quality food. I followed the paleo diet strictly a few years ago for months and everything improved. I haven't been following it strictly for a while and I know that's part of the problem. I feel like I am having the problem with constipation BECAUSE my liver is backed up.
I've read that fruit juice messes with your blood sugar, and I worry about candida issues. Would it help to do a bowel cleanse? I have Dr. Schulze 's 5 day bowel cleanse, which you're actually supposed to use with juice. What fruits do you recommend?
Acne, itching, make sure you don't have scabies or a mite first. Triple check... I once saw a dermatologist that said I didn't have it, even rubbed his hand all over my hand/arm to "prove" I didn't have it... but I did...
Acne... You need to handle Sugar better... Get Youngevity SweetEze Pills... take one with every meal you have.
Here is a picture of my skin at present. I have been battling this ongoing red rash that changes location and look for a year. I get red bumps in clusters esp under my eyes and on side of cheeks. I sometimes get white heads as well. The skin gets extra aggravated at times then calms down. It is never fully gone though. I have tried Chinese herbs, teds internal borax remedy, two rounds of humaworm parasite cleanse, removing dairy and gluten from diet, and many vitamins and supplements as well as manuka honey. When I first developed this problem it started as a red streak down my cheek then turned to more elevated red dots, sometimes in patches or clusters, moving around my face. At times the redness is tender or starts to peel a bit. Please please help me. Any and all insight is appreciated. Dr.'s have classified it as rosacea.... But I'm not able to take long term antibiotics and I don't want to at all. Also not sure if it is rosacea or not. The two topicals they gave me did not work and really pissed my face off, esp. The steroid cream.
Hai i have read your problem i think it is good if you follow the healthy diet plan and do not take sour items with milk and i here i have a best scar creams you can check the reviews and buy the scar cream which suits for you.
view scarremovalcream dot co for best results because even i use to have the same problem now i am perfect with a glowing skin
Lol I finally can help people! I've been with the same mysterious skin condition, mysterious hair parasites, what people classify as morgellons and so on. My girlfriend and I moved into a new place and we were very excited. She works at home and I'm at my bar usual 50-60 hours a week. I kept coming home and my girlfriend would freak out saying I can't keep the place clean, the walls they just keep getting dirty. No matter what we couldnt keep it clean. Dust and dirt were everywhere. The dog was very very ill. I kept seeing little white bugs crawling all over my hands, feet and head. They were jump out and it'd be a pus water and would burn like a bitch. It would itch, we'd cough, got anxiety, loss of appetite, dramatic weight loss, burning eyes, chronic fatigue, joint pain and my vision kept getting worse. I'd even have mild hallucinations and think wow I know I'm not on the comedown from an acid trip but I'd see double vision and everything would be blurry. Everyone thought we were crazy. A lot of friends turned on us. My mom would get frustrated. I got diagnosed with hookworms, pinworms and whipworms. Thing is it kept feeling like it would jump off our skin. My girlfriends hair would move and sync with other hairs too. It's crawl all over her face in white splotches. We'd video her with conditioners and you could see all the white blobs which would take over her hair. They'd jump out of my feet, arms, hands and head. They starting moving in my beard but I'm bald so I shaved off the beard and I kept feeling them in my eye. It'd be red, it'd be white, purple or yellow. The house would be damp and always a film of those colors on the floors, the walls, our clothes f***in everything! Nothing would work. People accused us of being drug addicts and my family backed out of my life. We wouldnt stand it. It f***ed up my life. We had to abandon our new place, jump from hotel to hotel and infect a new place, clean for days and leave. We were homeless and I was literally starting to lose it. I kept searching hair parasite and kept seeing morgellons, hookworms or roundworms. Until I came across tinea fungus. Common one is ringworm and there's different types. All of the sudden it made sense. The dampness of the house, the film, always appearing dirty and of course never having a f***in parasite! A fungus that's what most people have who keep having the mysterious hair parasite or skin condition no one can diagnose. Ok doctors you all call us crazy but one of the most common fungus infections you can't even identify and you call us crazy. f*** that shit. Been through too much. My girlfriend kept saying amoebas we had and now it makes sense. Needless to say a lawyer got involved, house covered in mold, severe and previous water damage, and tinea all in the house because the landlord ran a heroin brothel upstairs through the tenant. Literally I lost 90% of my belongings due to moisture and fungus damage. 6 to 8 weeks we were cleared. No more being crazy. I really hope everyone's mysterious skin condition and parasite infection is solved by tinea fungus. It literally was destroying my life. I hope this helps!
I'm by no means a doctor or medical professional. I have been hostage to a constant red face since the age of 13. I never knew why or understood the reasons my face was constantly red. At a young age my doctor told me I had rosacea and that it's heriditary. I accepted the diagnosis and went on with my life. Just recently I heard of a new rosacea product called SOOLNTRA that has 1% Ivermectin. That really got my gears turning. I did my research for hours online, reading blogs and forums. I discovered Rosacea, Acne and possibly scalp psoriasis are all caused by demodex mites! I figured if I could get ivermectin and try it for myself I have nothing to lose. Not having health insurance I went on Amazoon, found ivermectin paste for $2.99 I read the reviews. Humans have used it for scabies although it's made for horses. I was a bit skeptical and hesitant at first but went ahead and tried it. It's been two weeks and my face and scalp have never looked better and felt better!! I hope this easy cure will help millions escape our failing expensive healthcare system and demodex mites that ruin our lives.
Thank you So much for sharing your success w/ ivermectin, Justin. I'll be ordering that paste on Amazon the second I send this msg. and pray that it delivers the final punch I need to clear up this train wreck of a face.
After billions of research hours I recently figured out that my 12 years of nightmarish, life-changing pain & misery have been caused not JUST by bacteria & fungus, but by these wretched demodex mites that LIVE in my skin and create the bacteria & fungus !~ this is just SO Gross!!
Like many of you who've had this for a couple of years, these horrible creatures have damaged my life is so many ways, I'm praying that I can fix some of it when I get the demodex under control (I've read that we can Control them but can never kill them all.)
[Skip the rest of this 'essay' and go to my next post I'm going to send if you don't want to read any more of people's personal experiences being tortured by demodex mites; I'm going to send some info from an Acne Forum about some excellent treatment ideas for bacteria & fungus that might work well for you: They DO make the mites come out of your pores & follicles in droves but either they don't have quite enough kill power to Control the darned things or maybe I'm just not consistent or patient enough because I work very very long hours @ a State College.]
["My Mite Story" ]I'm sharing this so those of you who've suffered emotional, social and career damage due to this disfiguring condition, will know that you haven't been alone on this painful road.
~Even tho' I now know they have a name, I know that everybody has them on their face, and I've looked at these monsters under a 10x magnifying glass, it still seems surreal, like a bad dream, that hundreds, maybe thousands of them have been multiplying in MY skin all these years, turning my once clear & lovely skin into layers of hard, thickened itchy skin full of painful sticky white plugs & throbbing pimple-like bumps.
I feel like I've been in some bad horror movie for 12 whole years watching myself become ever more depressed, hopeless, pitted, scarred & isolated from spending hundreds of hours alone in my bathroom tearing my face up just to stop the throbbing, distracting pain in those big ugly bumps.
It's been hard not to cry all these years when I saw my reflection each morning w/ all the sores and red bumps on my face; It's made me dread going to work each day knowing I have to meet w/ college students up close, looking like I got mugged.
I've gone from being a social, fun-loving, happy, optimistic & confident woman in her 40's to someone who doesn't even want to leave the house anymore - takes too long to patch my face up and too embarrassing even when I do a 'good' job of it.
Most painful, has been trying to help friends, family & co-workers understand why it takes me hours to get ready to go somewhere or why I don't even Want to go out w/ anyone, anywhere...my face hurts and burns & will look awful in minutes even tho' I spent 2 hours covering it up. It's just been heartbreaking trying to explain my increasing isolation and despair because I couldn't even explain to Me what was happening to me..Until there were Forums like this one and the Acne Forum where other victims of this weird disfiguring infestation started sharing their stories, research, treatment successes & failures.
I owe every bit of new found hope to every one of you who has so generously shared your stories & wisdom.
So...Fast forward to several months ago when I googled "Sticky white plugs on my face" and found stories, information and ideas on a couple blogs & on ACNE forum, for products to try to beat these monsters...I was overjoyed! First time in years I had some hope that I wouldn't have to be a reclusive slave to my face forever.
~Almost all info & recommendations however, were for killing bacteria & the fungus left behind when the mites die and their bodies become mush (your skin reacts to all that crap which is why it forms many hard &thick layers); Not much mention of products to kill Demodex because, like me, lots of folks reserching ACNE don't realize that the bacteria & fungus and pimples may ALL be caused by demodex.
~I DID see improvement using all the suggestions for killing bacteria & fungus, but was HORRIFIED to see truckloads of those white, rice like mites coming out of my pores this weekend due to a rigorous care routine that takes too much time to do on workdays, and Knew I HAD to look for a way to Kill the Mites too.
I'm going to order the ivermectin and pray that it kills mites. I'll write that post w/ useful treatments as soon as I can.
I wish you blessings and clear skin, Barbara
Here is a tip for those who are ordering ivermectin from Amazon. Many products (targeted toward horses) say 'apple flavor'. This type is a sticky jelly and messy to use topically. However, the Horse Health brand is a white paste. It comes in a big plunger and is 1.87% so you need to cut it about in half with a lotion or cream of your choice. It is quite inexpensive and they ship fast.
So shocked! It never occurred to me that rosacea was caused by a parasite. I've been taking Ivermectin for years. My mind was focused on killing the parasites. When I read your post I went immediately to the mirror. The rosacea I have had for 20 years and just accepted is gone. I never noticed and had no clue it was caused by parasites.
Hello everyone, here to shed some light on my health situation and get some advices.
I'm litteraly desperate to find a cure for myself, some days i tell myself i have to be strong to recover but some other days i feel the fight is too hard.
I've tried several stuffs, i've been eating strictly raw with lot of fruits and very few fats for 2 years (this made me much worse and brought me new symptoms), liver flushes, some supplements, coffee enemas, colon hydrotherapy...
I'm a 25yo woman who suffers from the following symptoms since a few years already.
-Hair loss + greasy scalp
-Inflammation of the scalp and other parts of the body
-Always cold + Cold feet and hands
-Bad breath some days
-Depression and mood swings(very depressed before my periods)
-Pain and mucus in the throat most days.
-Pain in the articulations when it's rainy
-Tired after meals
-Blurry vision some days
Used to suffer from autoimmune thyroiditis, now the antibodies and hormone levels are in normal range but i still have all the above symptoms.
I do test positive for H.pylori
My family and friends think the reason 'm that sick is that i'm crazy and depressed...
Is there anyone with the same symtoms that found Something to help ?
You have symptoms of hypothyroidism, toxicity, food allergies, and possibly candida. Use the pulse test to find out which foods you are sensitive to (see http://www.dragonfly75.com/eng/pulsetest.html), eat more fruit for cleansing, drink spring water, limit protein intake (symptom of too much is mucus in throat), and do something for your low thyroid (sometimes there are helpful supplements in health food stores). Go to http://www.dragonfly75.com/eng/candida.html to read about candida.
Yep, I've had many of those symptoms, and I did figure a lot of things out. The main thing is ignoring all the stuff online that says we can't have nutrient deficiencies if we live in the developed world. It's just not the case. Especially if we have thyroid issues, and h.pylori puts you at greater risk for nutrient deficiencies too.
Raw foods are especially hard to digest. Many have "anti-nutrients" which can even take away vitamins from you during the digestion process. It's better to eat cooked or fermented foods, at least until you get past these current symptoms.
There are some great lists out there which can help you determine which nutrients you are lacking based on symptoms. From there, you can decide what to eat more of, and what supplements to try.
If I just look at your symptoms, and think off the top of my head, here's what I think you need more of:
-Hair loss + greasy scalp: zinc, B6, biotin
-Inflammation of the scalp and other parts of the body: B6, vit C
-Acne - B6, vit A, zinc
-Dry skin - vit A, C
-Food sensitivities - l-glutamine, thiamine, zinc, digestive enzymes, apple cider vinegar with meals.
-Always cold + Cold feet and hands - b-vitamins, iodine, selenium, iron, copper, zinc
-Chronic fatigue - vit A, iron, b-vitamins
-Bad breath some days - selenium
-Depression and mood swings(very depressed before my periods) B6
-Pain and mucus in the throat most days. B2, iron, vit A, zinc
-Pain in the articulations when it's rainy. Thiamine, B6
-Tired after meals - thiamine, zinc, digestive enzyme, apple cider vinegar with meals.
-Brain fog - thiamine, B12
-Blurry vision some days - vitamin E
I see a lot of B6 up in that list. If you have a B6 deficiency, you probably have a protein deficiency as well, even if you have been eating protein. This is because B6 is required to metabolize protein. So you will want to work on getting lots of protein, and you might want to supplement with tryptophan, glutamine and taurine (vision).
It's also really important to take a high quality multi-vitamin. Do NOT just take a few nutrients. Too much of one thing and not enough of another, over time, can put things out of balance. To much iron can affect copper and zinc. Too much zinc can affect copper. Too much vitamin A can interfere with vitamin D and E. So it's important to take a complete vitamin. A multivitamin and then add a b-complex.
Take extra B12, extra vitamin A, D and E. Choline and Magnesium. This is in addition to your multi and b-complex.
I'd also consider eating beef liver. It's probably the most nutrient dense food. I grew up thinking veggies were the healthiest thing to eat, but if you look at the actually data on vitamin content, meat and organ meat in particular, has more than any veggie.
If you test positive for H. Pylori you must get rid of it because it is compromising your whole digestive system. Making protein digestion extremely difficult because H. Pylori is urease positive and produces ammonia by using the urea in your saliva to neutralize your stomach acid.
Urease enzyme+Urea(saliva)->Ammonia+Carbon Dioxide which usually means burping while you are trying to digest protein because your stomach acid is being neutralized with every bit of saliva that you swallow. The high histamine levels and cortisol trigger saliva release.
If you have a Pylori infection then you will also have Leaky Gut which is why you have the food sensitivities. High histamine levels which stimulate the release of saliva which they want so that they can convert it to ammonia to neutralize your stomach acid. Be aware that such high levels of ammonia, enough to neutralize strong stomach acid stops energy production which is why you feel tired after meals. Carbohydrate foods such as fruit and veg which do not need stomach acid should be easier to digest and should not produce as much tiredness. Although they will produce an immune reaction which will lead to some tiredness. This might also produce SIBO and can lead to parasitic infection because your stomach cannot protect you from harmful organisms being ingested. Pylori is not the only bacteria which can do this and there are no tests for the other Urease positive bacteria.
I urge you to do everything you can to destroy the Pylori infection. Fortunately there is quite a lot of information on treating Pylori, even natural treatments and herbs which can treat it. Look for eflux pump inhibitors specific to Pylori as these will help destroy it.
Taking some Omega 3 would be helpful and might help reduce inflammation.
Your liver and all body systems will be under a considerable load which will require high levels of nutrients.
Digesting protein properly should help a lot but you might not be so keen on doing that because the high levels of saliva are your enemy to protein digestion and normal stomach function.
High doses of vitamin B12 eg Methylcobalamin can be helpful. High doses as in 20mg+ a day. That suppresses the immune function, especially IgE (allergic) antibody responses. This information used to be on Wikipedia until someone edited it out, no guesses as to who did that. I am glad that I read it before it was removed.
High dose Biotin might help your skin, particularly the dryness. I used to get dryness a lot before I increased my biotin intake. It's not gone entirely but it is much better now.
It sounds like you have read the GAPS book. I read that too and it did nothing to help because it does not address the problem. I suggest that you discard all the nonsense online about taking Glutamine and all the other supplements which claim to heal leaky gut because they cannot and do not work. If you can successfully destroy the infection you will fix your leaky gut! Anything else is a waste of time and money IMO. All the immune complexes antibodies will most likely be causing your body problems and that will not change and will not improve until pylori has been beaten. You can waste your time on the GAPS protocol or anything else but I guarantee that nothing will improve until you beat pylori.
I will tell you the state of your digestive system. Pylori creates a biofilm in the stomach which protects it. It can filter out ANYTHING! Antibiotics alone do not harm them. Any toxin which gets to the bacteria will destroy the bacteria near the surface of the biofilm and these will release their DNA and the deeper bacteria will use this to build resistance to the toxin. You will never beat them unless you use what is known about them to enable their defeat. That means finding known pylori efflux pump inhibitors and quorum sensing inhibitors to affect their chemical signalling to control their behaviour. Efflux pump inhibitors will stop them eliminating toxins and quorum sensing inhibitors can stop them strengthening/rebuilding their biofilm. There are different strains of pylori so you may need to find different substances which influence each of these which work on the different strains. DO NOT underestimate how difficult these are to defeat! Doctors use triple therapy for a reason, it shows how difficult they are to defeat. Your digestive system will not improve until they are beaten and your normal stomach mucosa can heal. Bone broth will not solve anything, it will have zero affect on your digestive permeability. Avoiding milk is a good idea because casein ie milk protein is very slow to digest.
The biofilm replaces a section of your stomach mucosa which is where the food sensitivities come from.
The more you change your diet the higher the immune reaction will be. Not changing the foods you eat each day might be helpful. Restricting your diet until you have beaten pylori might help, it certainly does for me. The more I alter my diet, adding new foods, causes me increased tiredness. While eating the same foods provides less of an immune system challenge and less tiredness.
You definitely need a high nutrient intake and your liver could do with all the support that it can get as it will be under a heavy burden. Milk Thistle extract might be helpful, I take it. Your body needs glutathione promoting amino acids in order to increase production and help with your high detox demands. Glutamine (can cause tiredness), Cysteine such as NAC, Glycine (can cause tiredness) and Methionine are the required amino acids. I take L-aspartic acid amino acid to counteract the sedating amino acids as it is a brain stimulant. NAC is known to have an effect on bacterial biofilms, it is used in some antibiotics. Interfase plus is an enzyme formula which can help. Taking this with Bacillus Subtilis might be helpful as BS produce tiny amounts of d- form amino acids which have been shown to be effective at triggering the break up of biofilms. BS is used in many probiotics because of the effect they can have on biofilms and they are part of the probiotic supplements Taking the enzymes shortly after should force the biofilm to take up those amino acids which can trigger biofilm break up. You need to time it all well to get the maximum effect. Efflux pump inhibitors, any quorum sensing inhibitors you can find, BS, Interfase plus and then hit them with strong antibacterials. I do suggest that you investigate natural treatments for Pylori as there are a number of things which can be helpful. Quite a bit is known about Pylori. Unfortunately for me I was negative for pylori so I know I do not have it, my torment is caused by a very similar but currently undetectable bacteria which shares a lot in common with pylori.
It is important to consume high quality protein but in a form which DOES NOT REQUIRE CHEWING! Chewing adds saliva which Pylori will used to neutralize your stomach acid. You need to raise your stomach acid levels in order to full digest protein. HCl capsules are useless as any saliva will lead to ammonia production which will neutralize the acid and leave you feeling tired afterwards. That is unless you deny them the saliva that they want. This is the dilemma. Have you noticed your nose running after eating and the saliva in your mouth increases? Stressful situations and cortisol release promote this. Preventing yourself from swallowing saliva while you digest protein is a temporary solution which will help provide your body with the amino acids it needs. This should help with the hair loss and healing. Taking Pancreatin with protein will help speed digestion but raising stomach acid is important for complete digestion. I mentioned that you might not be keen on the idea. I use Pea protein powder which has a nice texture but taste is not great. Hemp protein powder I use and I was using Rice powder protein but that has a nasty fine powdery texture which is horrible to use. I stopped using that and now concentrate on Pea protein powder which is 80% protein. That can be purchased from many bodybuilding suppliers online and it is fairly inexpensive. I add various culinary herbs to the mix such as Rosemary, Turmeric, Basil which I love, Cinnamon and a few others. These all make the protein powders taste quite nice. I add some fibre such as Xantham gum and Konjac which helps bind it all and soaks up water making it firm but can be quickly swallowed so needs no chewing. Add some Ascorbic acid, amino acids as Pea is fairly low in sulphur amino acids such as cysteine and methionine. If you take a pancreatin capsule before taking it and then have some Omega 3 oil the pancreatin will speed up digestion of the fat which will allow your stomach to empty quickly. I can digest two high protein thick "shake" with 3 to 5 dsp of oil in about 2 hours providing that I deny them saliva. A liquid could be swallowed more quickly but I prefer the "shake" in a thick consistency rather than a liquid, it works well for me. Very little burping and rarely any tiredness following the meal. That is with a Glutamine, Glycine and Magnesium which are all relaxing and/or sedating to some degree. Also a lot of added lecithin which can also cause a little tiredness in high doses. Aspartic acid stimulating properties helps counteract any sedating effects of the other supplements a bit. The other supplements such as the sulphur amino acids and lecithin are needed by my body.
If you do use the bone broth, which can be a useful protein and amino acid source in a good combination, but it will not solve the hyper permeability despite what some people claim. I would suggest that you liquidize the meat so that you do not have to check it. It will aid the quicker breakdown of the proteins and make the job for your stomach much quicker. It might be best to take vegetables separately away from the protein. Vegetables can then be checked without issue.
MSM MethylSulfonylMethane can be helpful as it provides Methyl groups which many people with Leaky Gut are deficient in. Supplementing with MSM can be very helpful and it could help your mood as part of methylation, which is frequently compromised, the methylation process creates SAM-e which has quite potent mood improving properties. I supplement with quite a bit of MSM.
the H Pylori burrow deep into the stomach wall and so herbs and vitamins and Colloidal Silver and anything else you can think of doesn't work. If it does then it wasn't H Pylori. Usually even a long course of antibiotics don't get rid of it. But I know how to get rid of it using microcurrents. Down here in South America stomach infections are common because they don't put enough chlorine in the city water. I get an infection about once every month or so and always get rid of it using electricity. ask me for details by messaging me.
Pylori persister cells are what enter the stomach wall. Their biofilm replaces the normal stomach mucosa and is what makes them so difficult to eliminate. It's not that they enter the stomach wall, it's the biofilm which protects them. The biofilm eliminates anything which is toxic to them and provides a shield against most things.
It sounds like you still are dealing with thyroid issues. I would find a naturooath or alternative practitioner who specializes in hormone issues. That's what I had to do to finally get answers. Regular doctors were a waste of time.
I have been on Roaccutane twice the first cycle 6 months 40mg twice a day (April 2015) and 80mg twice a day for 2 months on the second (April 2016). When I first began Roaccutane I was fully aware of the side effects of the medication so I always used lip balms to hydrate my lips (mainly carmex) that worked perfectly fine. Whilst I was on my second round of R my lips became extremely chapped to the point were thick layers of skin were hanging off the top and bottom lip whilst I was using a carmex medi plus. Immediately I stopped the medication and began using bepathen lip cream, which was advised by my dermatologist, but there were no improvements. I noticed after my second round of Roaccutane the balms were not helping but only adding to the problem, my lips got more severe the more I applied. The skin inside my lips also began to peel. I have tried most commercial balms; Aquaphor, Blistex, plain vaseline, beeswax which were all fine before this problem began but now have an opposite effect. I do use coconut oil, olive oil and honey (when I am at home) but it doesn't fix the root of the problem. I noticed when I use products containing Lanolin the dead skin becomes white and moist; my lips feel like they are sweating. When I use plain Vaseline mixed with coconut oil my lips burn as if I've put acid on them, since then I noticed small red bumps had formed. I was exfoliating the dead skin but it would only expose raw skin underneath so I stopped because I felt it was only prolonging the healing process.
Medication I am currently using:
I am using Clotrimazol again (past 12 days) and Triamcinolone (past 2 days) and it is helping.
Previously: hydrocortisone, Clotrimazol (used together in June for 3 weeks) no improvements. Clioquinol (July - 2 weeks) no improvements and Ampho-moronal lozenges ( October 1 week) which stopped the peeling inside of the mouth.
I have been following the Candida diet for 4 weeks cutting out as much Sugar and carbs as possible (maybe had a cookie here and there ;) )
I also did the candida-spit test, which showed positive for candida (if that’s even reliable)
I want to know if anyone has had this same problem with having a severe burning reaction with lip balms (lanolin/Vaselin etc) and if so what did you use to keep them moisturised so the skin can regenerate?
Hi all, it's been a few years since I've posted on here, but I'm deciding to get back to it. I've been liver flushing for 3 years on and off, and I feel like it has damaged my health by not doing it consistently. Life is crazy. It's been about 4 months since my last flush. Not once have I done it back to back till all the stones were gone, but I'm tired of the acne, the tightness in my jaw and upper back, low energy, etc. I would just like some support,maybe some success stories,or even just benefits you guys have noticed doing the flushes. My main concern is my eyesight, I am far sighted and over the last 2 years have developed horrible eye floaters. They are clear, circular,some are like cobwebs,and when I stare into a blue sky it looks like tons of nats. Im very sensitive to blue lights, the sun,and my eyes get dry easily. I know I have candida but not as bad as some people,I just itch all over, and I believe I am having a reaction to demodex mites on my forehead, very itchy and red, not like normal acne. I am hoping liver flushing will normalize the candida. Only supplements I take are synergy whole food vitamin c 3x a day, and prescript assist probiotic(one of the few kinds that stay in your body permanently..soil based) and msm powder 2000mg with chlorophyll. I use urban moonshine bitters when I need them. I do the paleo diet but have had a hard time sticking to it because my boyfriend's family eats out a lot. I know I have to do better. I am also addicted to kombucha drinks,but realized they were loaded with Sugar so I will only buy the ones with low sugar.
I hear you. It really pays to stay on a regular Liver Flush cycle maybe every six weeks or whenever those symptoms you mentioned start to return. Multiple flushes will reward you with more energy, better vision, less aches and pains, and better organ function overall. I do coffee enemas in between the Liver Flushes a few times/week to keep the liver clean since my diet is not so stellar. Go for it.
I used to do the same, doing coffee enemas between the flushes, but I started relying on them and flushing less.it's hard because the flushing is best done over 2 days where I have nothing planned. I'm 23 and I work in retail so my schedule can be unpredictable.That and going to school off and on makes it tough. I should just set aside 6 months and flush every 2 weeks and get it over with, then do the maintenance 2 per year. I'm just excited to see the results. Even just doing 2 within a month heightens my zest for life. I've found that my gut is so sensitive that I can't keep being so off and on with my paleo diet.
I'm hoping someone on here can give me some advice for my acne problem. I'm pretty depressed about it. I'm 27yrs old (female) and have been struggling with acne since I was 11-12. I'm really exhausted over it. I've tried so much, even was desperate and went on Accutane when I was in high school.
I know it shouldn't, but it has prevented me from living my life to its fullest. So many times I stay inside because of my face. I cry about it all the time too. It has really done a number on me psychologically all these years. I would really appreciate ANY advice at this point. I'm sorry ahead of time for how long my post may be, I want to make sure I include everything I can. Thanks!
Current health problems
-Endometriosis (on vagina, left ovary, and colon). I had laparoscopic surgery for it about a year and half ago. The first surgeon I saw wanted to remove my ovary and colon, and parts of my vagina.... I RAN to get a second opinion. 2nd surgeon wanted to remove only part of my ovary and remove the rest of endo without harming organs. I went with the 2nd surgeon! Unfortunately, Endo returned 7 months after surgery with VENGEANCE! I couldn't leave the house for a month the pain was so bad. No matter what doctor I went to they all wanted to put me of pain meds (oxy...) and said there nothing else that can do except another surgery, what I have is "incurable". I refused the pain meds and on my own changed my diet, started acupuncture. My pain is almost 100% gone now. I do still have endo.
-Suffer from Ovarian cysts. I've had them since early high school. Most went away on their own. Have one now, am shrinking it naturally. One cyst needed to be removed through laparo surgery (same time as endo removal) because it grew to the size of a tennis ball. All cysts have always been benign.
-I STRONGLY believe I have PCOS but every time I ask a doctor to test me for it they dismiss it right away because I am not obese and have a regular cycle
-Allergic to benzoyl peroxide, gold, and shellac. (I try my best to avoid all)
Symptoms I'm dealing with
-Acne (only on face)
-Hirsutism (I hate this... :( . This also has affected my life)
-Hard for me to gain weight no matter how much/what I eat (I'm 5'2 and about 100lbs)
-Trouble sleeping, going/staying asleep. I've never slept well my entire life. My mom said even as a baby I was the same way.
-I have lots of energy in the morning and night. I crash in the middle of the day around 4pm-6pm. After, my energy goes back up again.
-Pain in joints. (palm of hands and knees)
-Any cut, pimple, scar, takes a LONG time to heal
-My husband and I tried to conceive for 9 months last year, had one early miscarriage.
-rarely eat meat
-trying to eat raw first half of day
-trying to have lots of tea throughout day (green tea, raspberry leaf, yogi teas...)
- 2 scoops of Green Vibrance daily
- 500mg B5 daily
- 1-2 grams Inositol daily
- 500mg vitamin C daily
-I also take Great Lakes Collagen (green bottle) every morning
-Although my skin looks horrible and unhealthy, my head hair is and has always been super healthy and very long.
-I don't exercise much
-never have trouble with bowel movements. I go about 4 times a day. never constipated etc...
-I am under a lot of stress, a lot of people rely on me and it weighs heavy on me
-I currently use only vegan (non shellac) mineral foundation. no other makeup.
-I remove makeup with coconut oil, wash my face with lush herbalism, and then apply apple cider vinegar (diluted with water) to my face, every night.
Thanks again for taking the time to read all of this! I've tried a lot over the years to cure my acne but nothing :/.... I haven't yet tried the bowel/parasite/kidney/liver cleanses. Do you think this is a good place to start?
Few suggestions for fine tuning your diet so it helps you heal. In case you are sensitive or allergic to any of the foods suggested, avoid those foods.
Base your diet on the next foods:
- raw vegetable like cucumbers, peppers, carrots, onions etc
- occasionally cooked vegetables
- raw ocean fish like raw salmon, raw cod, raw halibut, tuna if at all available. Raw fish must be very fresh, or it can cause intestinal problems.
- occasionally cooked ocean fish
- raw or cooked shrimps if you feel they are good for you
- fruit and berry smoothies if you feel they are good for you
- occasionally dried fruits with no additives added. Most dried fruits today contains preservatives !
- raw nuts like almonds, coconut, brazil nuts, walnuts
- occasionally fried nuts
- seaweed like nori
- eggs, including raw eggs if you feel they are good for you
- other fish or shellfish if you feel they are good for you
- beans if you feel they are good for you
Eliminate from your diet for 3 months all
- grains, including rice
- milk and milk products
- all foods with added sugar
- all industrially processed foods
- all foods with food additives , preservatives , benzoates , sorbates , citrates , nitrates , nitrites , etc
- all fried foods
- all meat except occasionally some chicken, if you feel you need some meat
- all foods sold ready made, packaged, canned, pre-made, processed, etc ...
- avoid restaurant foods as you have no way of knowing what it contains
Thanks so much! This all makes sense, thanks for explaining everything. I will be changing my diet right away and start reading about everything you posted. One last question, should I jump straight into a liver cleanse or do a parasite + Colon Cleanse first?
Hey, I'm NOT a doctor nor a dermatologist nor some health food nut, so, I can't and won't tell you what to use, or not to use, but, maybe my past experience can help YOU as it did for me!
From ages 10 to around 14 or 15 I had the absolute WORST facial acne and already felt really shiiii-tty about that enough already, than along with the nasty things other kids, and yeah, even some immature adults would say to me each and every single rotten day, and the rejections I would get from selfish shallow bitches-(who missed out on one great guy)-, I just couldn't take no more and decided I had to do something!
Here's how I got rid of Acne, and this I can tell you worked for ME!
I really hated how I looked, but, I couldn't afford any expensive meds. or concoctions sold in stores, so what I did was sorta pretty simple and affordable.
First, I used common sense and cut out ALL pimple causing foods to start!
I quit eating and drinking any and all sweets, especially chocolates, also cut out all dairy (milk/cheese/butter/margarine/mayo/ice cream/etc.) and every fried greasy foods imaginable and any foods and drinks high in acid were also out, I also stopped red meat and Pizza, and no soda.
Trust me, It wasn't an easy task living in a Sicilian household where everyone was always cooking or baking up something that looked and smelled great!
I would also wash my face good, hard and long with Caress brand bar soap and very hot water every 4 hours or so and would then use 70% or 80% Isoprophyl rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball and would scrub hard to really clean out my pores and then I would break open a 500mg vitamin E pill and smear it on my entire face and would let it dry.
I would also take a daily creatine supplement since I was not eating any meat and would ingest 1000mg vit.E daily.
I had also hooked up with a really hot Senior chick-(who luckily for ME was a real nympho)-around the end of my Freshman year of H.S., at the time I had mentioned how much I hated having Acne and how embarrassed I was due to it, she said that she once read in a magazine that "oral sex helps get rid of Acne thanks to urea, protein and other stuff in the fluids" and she wanted to try it with me anyway.
So, naturally, we sorta did the good ol' 69 a few times daily and I would also have her pee right on my face in the shower daily too!
(Not really sure how much any of THAT helped my Acne vanish though, but it sure was fun "experimenting"! lol)
I have read over the years that urea (pee) can help clear up skin and that sperm is also real good for skin,, and also many, if not all of the half decent anti-acne products that are on the market DO contain some form of urea (read their ingredient labels, it's always in there)
So, if you have a significant other, or even a close, close friend who can, or would be willing to help you, and I am being very serious here, why not have them pee and/or bust a load on your face, or squirt into a cup or jar and apply a couple times a day, do it in a shower of course, less mess to clean up that way!
Your not only doing your skin a favor, but you'll be getting some form of exercise and you will also be having some fun while your at it too!
BTW, I'd be glad to "donate" to your cause if you really need a "supplier"!
And what I can tell you is that within only 4 or 5 months the Acne I had was completely GONE and by my 16th birthday a few months later, I had the nicest, clearest, smoothest skin in class and my hair was as smooth as silk too.
I'm 48 now, my hair is still silky smooth, shiny and soft and I am completely wrinkle free and get compliments on how young I look all the time!
Endometriosis & ovary problems & other cysts are typical of Iodine deficiency in women. Additional symptoms include fibrocystic breasts, brain fog, cold fingers, cold feet & lower than normal body temp. In really severe cases, swelling in the neck. Along with Iodine deficiency are related cancers because the immune system needs iodine to kill cancer cells.
Thank you! I will be looking into iodine. I've read a little about this in the past. I even have Lugol's Solution 2% at home (haven't used it yet). I also have Colloidal Silver at home, so I will give that a try for my face too. Thanks again! Everyone has given me great advice here on curezone!
Acne make us frustrated and lost confident in ourselves. And natural tips can help to get rid of this issue which detroy ourlives.
For everyone suffer from acne should follow these tips.
Clean skin twice in a day, unsing effective home remedies based on natural products like
1)lemon with honey applying as a mask on face
2)Cucumber with rose water.
3)Honey with egg whites plus spoon of milk.
Your symptoms scream B6 deficiency. B6 is needed for both skin and moderating estrogen in the body. B6 does a couple hundred other things too. It controls inflammation, most notably. So if you have hormone related problems (endometriosis), skin problems as well as joint or muscle pain, nerve pain (carpal tunnel, aching feet, back pain)... it's probably a B6 issue. You also mentioned a miscarriage (I'm so sorry). Definitely get some B6, it lowers prolactin levels which are associated with miscarriage. B6 is the hormone regulator vitamin.
B6 is also the vitamin we need to make serotonin. And from serotonin we make melatonin. Low B6 can cause depression and sleep problems.
B6 is also important for the use of Iodine in the body. Many people think Iodine is a miracle cure for everything. And iodine is amazing. But it doesn't do it's magic alone. Each person's experience with iodine will completely depend on their body's status in other nutrients. This is why it's so important to take ALL the vitamins and minerals, never just a few. A person low in B6 could take 50mg of iodine and not notice much because it just passes through the body unused. B6 is required to transport iodine into the glands where it needs to go. A person who has A LOT of B6 could experience problems starting with even small amounts of iodine, causing hyperthyroid symptoms. This is VERY dangerous, and it will adversely impact your health by further depleting you of many nutrients. I believe this is why there is so much controversy over iodine. How much we need and whether iodine is safe depends on each person's nutritional status.
Ideally, start with B6 alone. After a couple months, then add iodine slowly. But if you've already started with iodine (which is how I did it), you should go slow with B6, backing off iodine if you experience adverse affects, especially rapid heart rate.
A couple other things too. (It's really helpful that you put so much info in your post. Your full diet, supplements, etc, that really helps.)
Large doses of B5 can compete for absorption with biotin, which is important for skin. You might consider lowering your B5 dose and adding a lot of biotin. Depending on how long you've taking the 500mg of B5, you could have gotten out of balance with biotin.
A diet high in raw fish can cause thiamine deficiency. Raw fish contains thiaminases, an enzyme that splits thiamine and makes it unabsorbable. Low thiamine can mimic hypothyroidism. Symptoms are almost an exact match. Thiamine is an extremely dangerous vitamin deficiency to have. Very large doses of thiamine are required once a deficiency sets in because we lose the ability to absorb and transport thiamine. This is the boat I'm in at the moment. Seems I had to learn everything the hard way.
Dairy products are probably the best source for riboflavin. Just be sure you're getting enough riboflavin from somewhere. I learned this the hard way. Low riboflavin is needed for hundreds of things, including activating B6, and other b-vitamins.
Green, black and white tea all come from the plant "camilla sinensis". This plan grows mainly in the soils of India and china, where fluoride content is very high. And this plant is the highest concentrator of fluoride. I know green tea is supposed to be good for you, but unfortunately, it has risks too. Never soak your bags more than two or three minutes to avoid the fluoride leaching into your tea. Fluoride will cause thyroid problems and pineal gland problems. It will affect your ability to make melatonin (sleep problems).
Tea also contains anti-thiamine compounds. As does coffee. I had to give up both.
No alcohol and no Sugar are the best choices you can make for your health. Both are total nutrient depletors. So good on you for doing that.
Thank you!!! I have not started the Iodine yet. I will make sure to get on the b6 before I do. Is there a B6 brand you recommend? I also drink A LOT of tea, so I will cut back on that. I didn't know about the fluoride connection :( I'll try to focus more so on just drinking plain water. I'll make sure to apply everything you suggested. Thanks again!! :D
My acne has gotten a lot better since I posted this topic. I believe it's been 2 months since the topic post? I haven't been able to try everything everyone has recommended because these past two months have been very hectic, traveling, wedding season, etc... I have much more free time now and will be diving into everything much more this coming month.
As I said, a lot of my acne has cleared up. The only acne I have is on my chin and above my lip. I would say about a total of about 8 - 10 small red pimples. They usually form heads too. No cystic acne. The pimples come and go randomly (at least I think it's random...). Other than that, my cheeks have cleared, including the scars, and my nose and forehead, which have always been pretty clear, have remained clear. My pores have shrunk too. My pores are still visable but not as much as before. My skin is by no means perfect but it most definitely a lot clearer.
As I said above, I wasn't able to do much of what everyone suggested due to the crazy month I had, so this comes to a surprise to me that my skin has cleared up so much. What I did get to do was the Oxypowder colon cleanse. I did this 3 times. Each time I did the colon cleanse, I would break out worse. Then after a few days my skin would look great. I think the Colon Cleanse helped a lot. I will continue the cleanses.
I also have been a lot more active. I think this might have helped too.
My acne isn't the only thing that's better, but my mental health is too. Maybe it's because I see my acne clearing up, but I'm feeling much happier and much more positive. Sleeping is still troublesome though.
Onto how I've been eating. Hate to admit this, but by diet has been all over the place... One week healthy, next week not so much, but I promised myself I will be getting back on track this month.
I also recently got blood work done for my hormones, liver, kidneys, etc... I had this done about a week ago, my results just recently came in....
TSH 1.82 uIU/ml
FSH 5.50 mIU/mL (follicular phase)
LH 6.6 mIU/mL (follicular phase)
Doctor said all those levels were normal, plus my liver and kidney were functioning fine. :D I'm happy to see my hormones are normal
There were a few things that were slightly off though...
Iron 36 ug/dL LOW
Platelets 110 THOUS/MCL LOW
Red Blood Count 4.95 Millions/MCL slightly high
Cholesterol slightly high at 184
BUN 9mg/dL on lower end. Not sure if this is good or bad?
Thought I'd post the results, maybe it'll give further insight to what's going on, but overall, I'm feeling better and my acne looks a lot better since my starting post :)
I first did the Colon Cleanse to prepare myself for the liver cleanse (on the cure zone site it recommends to do that first), then skipped the parasite cleanse (will do this at a later time), and jumped right into the liver cleanse. I chose to do the most gentle liver cleanse I could find since I was a little hesitant. I picked Livatrex by Global Healing Center. It's a 4 day cleanse and didn't require the oil + Epsom Salt drink. I thought this would be a good "start" cleanse then eventually do the big liver cleanse with the Epsom Salt & oil dink.
I didn't even follow the diet they recommended, was a little bad and ate some not so healthy things, but WOW by day 4 my skin looked amazing! Redness is pretty much all gone, all my current acne is shrinking/much much smaller, most cleared, even my facial swelling has gone down. I felt like I got a natural nose job because the top of my nose, the section between my eyes, got much thinner. I didn't realize it was always so swollen haha
I really didn't expect these result since this was a gentler cleanse and I heard of people doing the more extreme cleanse a ton of times to see anything. I'm going to continue on a maintenance dose of Livatrex and start on their parasite program soon and see how that goes. I've also started the Iodine so that too I hope goes well!
So about 8 months ago I started supplementing with Iodine and selenium and i felt UNBELIEVABLE.I had so much energy, didn't need to sleep as much, my mind was so clear and my skin and eyes looked brighter and healthier. This great feeling lasted about 3 months or so, then I gradually went back to feeling lousy (tired all the time, no energy, bad skin, bad eyes, bad hair etc).
Does anyone know why the iodine/selenium stopped making me feel good after 3 months and how I can get that amazing feeling back?
I'm Coeliac and hypothyroid and supplement with magnesium, vit D, iodine, selenium, zinc, cod oil, etc.
I just wanna know why I had such a boost from the Iodine initially but then went back to feeling bad. Any advice pls as I don't want to keep feeling bad..
I has a similar experience. I started with Iodine last year after a few years of feeling miserable (undiagnosed hypothyroid), and then a few months of scary symptoms (dangerously hypothyroid), and then one day last summer, I went out for sushi and felt incredible, like a super hero. And decided Iodine was the answer to all of my problems. lol Well it was a lot more complicated than that!
You can probably find my original story from last year on this site if you want to read it.
Are you taking a multivitamin? Any b-vitamins? Vitamin A, C, E? If you are, how much? What form?
If there is one thing I've learned and would pass on from my year of recovery, it is that ALL the vitamins and minerals are important. No one nutrient is more important than the others. Iodine is NOT special. It may just happen to have been what you needed 8 months ago, but now, you are likely low in other things.
Take a look at your supplements and diet, and look for what you're not getting enough of. Even if you're taking it, maybe it's not in a form you are absorbing.
Celiac and thyroid both put you at risk for b-vitamin deficiency. Even just using iodine, and getting that boost of metabolism, puts you at risk.
Celiac and thyroid mean you are likely not great at absorbing any fat soluble vitamin, not just vitamin D. Vitamin D gets a lot of press lately, causing us to forget the other fat soluble vitamins, which are every bit as important. Labs don't have a way to test for vitamin A or E accurately, however, so for this reason alone, doctor's never talk about them. You need them for thyroid function, immunity, heart health, eyes, skin, hair, and on and on.
I've only gotten better from a lot of trial and error with different forms of all the vitamins, and pretty big doses too, and then seeing what helped and what didn't.
Vitamin A made a HUGE difference for me. The same boost as I got from iodine. Then that made me thiamine deficient - from the high metabolic rate. Took me too long to figure that one out. I ended up with nerve pain from low b-vitamins - which I mistakenly thought was from too much B6. So I wasted some months not taking enough B6. Then started on B6 and got hyperthyroid from that - which made me feel amazing for a few days only to crash from low everything else.
And now I'm so incredibly low in thiamine I can't tolerate any Sugar at all, and have had some scary symptoms from that. Now I'm taking a special form of thiamine since I've lost the ability to actively transport thiamine from the gut. I take benfothiamine and lipothiamine and regular thiamine. Some research suggests thyroid problems result in a thiamine transporter problem. I wish I had started taking this "lipothiamine" supplement last year - along with the iodine. Low thiamine causes many problems. Cardiovascular, digestive and neurological. Fatigue and memory problems. Heart problems. Stomach problems including low motility and low stomach acid, which then leads to bacteria overgrowth and reflux, and more nutrient deficiencies from malabsorption.
Zinc is another really important water soluble vitamin. Zinc deficiency is hard to recover from because you can't take more than 50mg or you can become copper deficient. If you have raised TSH for a period of months or years, it will eventually deplete zinc, because you use up a lot of zinc making TSH. And then you will eventually lose the ability to make TSH, and doctors will think your thyroid is fine, even when your hair falls out, your skin breaks out like a teenager, your voice goes hoarse, and you have ankles the size of Texas. So be sure to take zinc!
And Iron - you needs this to make TPO - which is the machine which makes thyroid hormones. So if you take a lot of iodine and it boosts your thyroid production, you could run out of iron for TPO. Then you'll end up with headaches, depression (because you need iron to make serotonin), insomnia (because you need serotonin to make melatonin), anemia, and a sore tongue, swallowing problems, and exercise intolerance, heart palpitations... etc.
We haven't even talked about proteins yet. But that's another one to look into at some point. Certain amino acids can be depleted in thyroid patients. It's important to get lots of protein because these work together with all the vitamins and minerals.
Hope this helps! Sorry it's so long, it's hard to make it short because it's all really complicated.
If you take Iodine, your hypothalamus thinks there is too much thyroid hormone (Which contains iodine) so it reduces thyroid releasing hormone so the pituatary makes less thyroid stimulating hormone so your thyroid makes less thyroid hormone so... you get tired...
Hey folks, I've been battling parasites for a year. I might have gotten them from a trip to the tropics in 2014 (i did have pretty bad food poisoning but then it mysteriously disappeared) but then suddenly had an onset of insane fever+constipation+fatigue+worms and eggs in stool in 2015 that doctors wrongly diagnosed as Stomach flu. I am only 22 years old and it has been taking a toll on me mentally and physically. Here are the list of symptoms I have:
-worm-looking floaters in my eye and tiny dot floaters sometimes transparent or a little darker
-My bones often crack and I feel "pulsating" or twiching in muscles all around my body and abdominal area
-during ovulation, intense itching in groin and anal area + bleeding. rashes. (might be pinworms)
-increasing acne on face and back
-things that look like roundworms, ropeworms, Tapeworm eggs, rice-looking segments, flukes, black specks,tiny white hair like worms
-sneezing/blowing nose during cleanses
-almost always itchy scalp,nose,face, ears
-severe fatigue, weakness
-randomly get hiccups
-brain fog, nervousness, depression, anxiety
Things get way worse during the full moon. Sometimes I can barely get out of bed and need plenty of caffeine to get going. I've tried easier to get natural/alternative products but the creatures keep on coming back. decided to try Humaworm. I'm still waiting for it in the mail. What are some tips you have?
You may have disseminated worms. Mattk3 Document 255 states, "Pharmaceutical medications are best treatment for disseminated worms. Herbs only work on gastrointestinal worms." Mattk3 protocol, "Start on Praziquantel 25mg/kg (minimum dose) every day, divided into 4 doses, 6 hours apart (ie 9am, 3pm, 9pm & 3am), for minimum 7 days up to 30 - 60 days +
Praziquantel 25mg/kg/day (divided into 4 doses) should be taken in combination with Albendazole 200mg - 400mg/day, divided into 2 doses (ie 3pm and 3 am).
I am on day 21 of Praziquantel 50mg/kg/day in combination with Albendazole 200mg-400mg/day. For me, the anti-parasitic medications started working on day 15. Things are beginning to calm down in my body. I plan to dose for 40 days minimum.
I had no idea worms could penetrate intact skin! Nematode larvae entered intact skin on my lower left calf. I went to five different doctors. All 5 doctors wasted my time. Doctor number 5 just kept repeating, "I disagree with you...I disagree with you...I disagree with you..." Now, "I disagree with you" is like echo in my head.
Doctors make people continue suffering with parasites. Lets hope the NHS is replaced by private companies. I have used piperazine. You can buy it sold for dogs and rabbits etc. Also I have had half a pineapple per day.
What kind of parasites? I have little worms coming out of my skin and they are all around my house they look like hair and or threads and I noticed black dot things with the hair attached like legs or something.. Can u help me figure this out and or what to do to get rid of these little f***tards??
Are you asking me? I don't know how to buy drugs apart from those sold for dogs etc. You need to be careful about what you buy. If the worms eat blood then I would try piperazine. From my experience it will be slow. I have been avoiding too much meat and trying to eat pineapple and some currie.
Humaworm works, I'm a 23 year old female and my body is INFESTED with blood flukes, liver flukes, tapes and roundworms.. I see heaps coming out.. especially liver flukes, Liver Flushes and enemas are necessary too IMO
Are you a member of the humaworm group on facebook?
I did pharma drugs too but ended up with high liver enzymes.. I should have lowered the dose, but I believe the kill rate was too fast I had to take a break, I felt hungover 24/7 for a whole month afterwards... ythought I had ended up with some weird side effect, I was horrified. If I were you I would start with herbs.. and then maybe try the Hulda Clark mop up program after 3 rounds of herbs, just my advide :)
Here are some helpful tips of my own I thought I'd share. Some of them you may already know, some you may not.
Tip #1: First thing in the morning on an empty stomach, have one glass (8 oz or more) of fine grey sea salt mixed with water. This isn't just the sea salt you buy at the grocery store. This is high quality sea salt from France with over 80 mineral elements in it. Mix ONLY a pinch of it into your water and drink (it's pretty much tasteless). This will also cause you to lose some pounds even if you don't need to, but it balances the body which I think helps a great deal for ones skin!! (I lost 7-8 pounds in 1 month even though I didn't need to, and my skin is improving a lot) The salt can be found at: http://www.eco-natural.com/greysalt/products.html [the fine grey sea salt]
Tip #2: If you have a bad breakout or your face is irritated, take an ice cube and ice your face for however long it takes for the ice to disappear. Do this 1-2 times a day. It really helps soothe and calm the area, and cold is really good for the skin. I do this every night even when I don't need to, I just love the feel of it.
Tip #3: Using a mud mask is really good for those annoying tiny little bumps that are a pain to get rid of. Apply it thick (thicker the better) on that area, let dry and then gently massage some water over it in circle motions for about a minute. Then rinse. When I had some of these bumps around my mouth one time, I did this and they practically disappeared overnight. It dries them right up.
Tip #4: Apple Cider vinegar mixed with honey is a great after-wash. Just mix them together and splash it on your face after cleansing, then go to bed. Don't rinse it off. It usually does a good job drying pimples out because the vinegar is good for killing any bacteria that forms while the honey makes it less burning. I've heard some people rave about it, I haven't tried it though.
Tip #5: Pure juice from a lemon is known to dry up acne, however..I found that the juice is better as a toner and lightening acne marks and scars. Delute some of the juice with either rose water or normal water and apply with a cotton ball over the entire face. It's good to use during the day, but if you wear makeup then use it at night. It brightens the skin also and promotes a glow.
Tip #6: This is my favorite home-made scrub! You'll love it. Take a handful of oats (natural plain porridge oats) and put it in a cup or small bowl, add just enough cream (or warm milk), or even just water until it forms a paste. Then spread on your face and wait about 3-4 minutes. Then wet your hands and slowly massage it in circle motions for 1-2 minutes, you'll love the feel of it. Then rinse. It's awesome for oily/normal skin and leaves it sooo extremely soft. It also does a great job at fading marks and overall makes the skin look good. Do this 1-2 times a week. Caution: it's gets very messy!! =)
Tip #7: Avoid dairy!!! I'm sure you know this one already. That goes for milk especially, cheese, and so on. There are much healthier alternatives. Use goat cheese made from goat milk. Use goat milk, coconut, almond or rice milk. These taste even better than the normal cows milk. Also avoid as much refined sugar as you can. If you drink coffee or tea and use sugar, get stevia. Stevia is a plant and is natural. Avoid pastries (donuts, muffins, cakes, pies) even though they're so yummy..there's also alternatives. Basically anything white like flour...you can get coconut flour if you love to bake.
Tip #8: Apricots, blueberries, strawberries, apples, pears, plums, watermelon..etc are excellent for the skin. (Oranges, grapefruit..etc) are not (as I've heard so many people who breakout from these high citrus fruits.)
Tip #9: Change your pillow case every night, change your sheets once a week/biweekly. I find that fresh air while sleeping really helps the skin. It's freezing here in Canada right now with winter and I always keep my window slightly open at night so I can feel a light breeze on my face. My skin always looks so much clearer the next day! And 8 or more hours of good sleep helps.
Tip #10: Think positive. Find some time to yourself when you're all alone (during a bath maybe, or laying in bed) and just focus and concentrate on clear skin. Visualize yourself with clear skin, hold that image in your mind for as long as possible, take deep breaths and do this for at least 10 minutes. Hang up a picture in your room of a model with perfectly clear skin and stare at it. Your mind is powerful and create anything you want, but it's difficult for us because we are impatient. Practice a few times and do it daily. I did this a few months back when I was really miserable about my skin, and in less than a week my skin just cleared up. I even got compliments on what I was doing, it was an awesome feeling. Try not to think about the bad so much, like being totally obsessed of what you eat that day or forgetting to wash your face. Blank out the negative whenever it starts to show and just hold that thought in your mind of having clear skin no matter what you do, and it will manifest.
Well I hope you find some, or at least one, of these tips helpful. Good luck.
Great post, thanks! One thing I'd add is to mak sure you're getting at least 1 tbsp of good quality cod liver or cold-pressed flax oil everday. Helps to promote soft, clear skin.
Do you find the lemon juice and/or the milk scrub don't make your skin break out?? I put calendula tea on my face one and broke out HORRIBILY! I'm scared to put anything on my face lol, though I'm enticed by the promise of lightened skin markings.
Oh, yes. I almost forgot about how important the EFA's are (Essential Fatty Acids) -Oils. Thanks for posting that. Flax, borage, primrose, coconut, walnut and of course cod liver oils are extremely beneficial.
I also want to add that I drink green tea (by Tetley) everyday. I don't know if it has taken part in helping my skin, but I got addicted to it and I crave it almost every day now. Can't hurt.
I find that the lemon is great, at first it can sting, but that's why I like to delute it with rose water. It's makes a pretty nice toner and has lightened a few left over red marks. As for the oat/milk scrub...not at all does it create new breakouts. It's the best scrub I've ever made. If you have normal/dry skin, use it once a week. If you're more on the oily side you could use it everyday. You don't have to use milk though, water does the job too. It makes the skin so utterly soft and look clearer.
I know what you mean about trying new things for the face, I'm always skeptical at first too. But I guess if we never try we'll never know. :)
That's sweet. I like how you use natural stuff and its not that expensive. I was thinking some cleansing like Liver Flush but i still had to buy those ingredients instead of using what's there inside your home!
Also, do you know any other cure for acne scars? that's what im currently suffering.
more tips: use egg white, apply it in your face , do it 2-3 times a week. I suggest doing
it at night before you sleep. rinse in the morning.
This list and tips are just wonderful. I have to show my daughter this list because she always have a really hard time with break outs. I like the positive vibe coming from your message and that really great. She is constantly sad about how bad her acme has got, but I wanted to also talk about something that worked for her for anyone that likes to wear makeup. She actually uses Albolene, which is a makeup remover cream, that helps with light acme. I didn't think it was going to work either, but in a week, her acme really cleared up. If any lady is out there and you love makeup and are breaking out because of it, you should check it out. I'm going to copy this list and email her it because these tips are awesome. Thanks everyone!
Ok, Ive had them for about a year, Im 16. Ive tried vitamin E (still doing that), as in Vit E lotion and in pills, Ive done masks, lotions, some sun. I have a fairly good diet, I drink lots of water, take multi vitamins. And I work out. Should I just give up and take laser surgery? And how much money is that usually?
Vitamin E and cocoa butter are tow things for scars, but they take a while until you see affects. be patient, you can have bad side affects from lazers. Stick with the vitmain E and try cocoa butter.
Also this a thing called Black Soap, there two the fake one which works, ( black dye) and the one straight from africa ( order on nasabb.com). They really help with acne and blemished.
I'm African American, and I use black soap and drink alot of water and cute out sweets, my skin cleared up. I pretty sure it'll work on non-african american skin too ( I don't know you race). I say this because African americans come in different shades, etc.
Find a good doctor who does laser surgery. But if your
only 16 your acne problem is probably not over...
What cured me was an e-book I purchased online.
Here's an excerpt from the website.
" To cure your acne once and for all you need to stop looking at your skin as the problem. We at acnecured.com will show you that contrary to popular beleif acne has nothing to do with your skin...It however has everything to do with what is happening inside your body. Your skin is essentially only a feedback mechanism for your internal health. If your skin has acne and is not healthy then you need to look at your system as a whole".

A lot of people say that acne is due to your hormonal imbalance as you are an adolescent. But it shouldn't be. why do you need to suffer?
I think its what to do instead of going straight to get laser peels.
What I know is we need to be clean
Wash your fabrics. Any fabric that comes into contact with your skin on a regular basis - clothes, towels, pillowcases, and sheets - should be washed at least once a week to remove oil and bacteria that build up over time. Use a gentle cleanser for sensitive skin to help solve your acne problem.
And if you are using make up, use oil-free makeup. Otherwise you may be stuck in a vicious cycle of covering up acne while simultaneously causing it with your cover-up usage. Find acne-fighting oil-free mineral makeup to help prevent worsening your acne while simply trying to hide it. Power foundations are also recommended. When possible, avoid wearing makeup at all though as it clogs your pores over the course of the day.
Regularly clean makeup brushes to prevent bacterial growth.
And very important-
Wear sunscreen everyday and do not tan. Ultraviolet Radiation is the number one cause of premature aging. It also leads to Skin Cancer in high enough doses. Treat the sun like the death ray that it is. Exposing your skin to harmful UVA and UVB rays damages skin and prolongs post inflammatory erythema(PIE)--red acne marks, as the sunlight stimulates pigment-producing cells.
Not only can the sun prolong PIE appearance, it can lead to premature aging including sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles. UV damage is DNA damage. Sunscreen is an anti-aging must for all ages young and old--preventing future skin cancer. It is the fountain of youth in a bottle. Prevention is better than treatment. There is no such thing as safe tanning but There is sun damage.
Therefore, it is very important that you wear sunscreen everyday, with an SPF of 30.Of note, after SPF 30, there are decreasing marginal returns in UVB protection. The % of UVB protection as a function of SPF Value is a log graph and plateaus after SPF 30. Therefore, there is not much difference in protection between SPF 40 and 50. Sunscreens with a SPF 100 are banned in some countries.
For UVA protection, a sunscreen with a high UVA protection of PA+++ or higher of PA++++ as recommended, especially to treat PIE. PPD is the UVA equivalent of SPF; use a sunscreen with a minimum of PPD20. The PA+ system has a + that corresponds to a tier of PPD protection. Of note, different countries use different PA systems. Japan, and Taiwan changed their PA system to a 4+ tier system while Korea uses a 3+ tier system.
When out in the sun for long periods of time, stick to the shade as much as possible and wear a wide-brimmed hat and light, long-sleeved clothing. Wear sunglasses, especially those that have less melanin in their eyes. Consider carrying a parasol. In Asia, they are a popular fashionable accessory.
I find the scince from Luminesce very effective. The moisturizer is light and has SPF30 which you don't need to get separately and the cleanser cleans off make up too. http://tinyurl.com/HelpYourselves
