To a large extent, yes, but to religiously follow stringent health regimen, at times, becomes really difficult. Lips still peel but peeling starts only after 7 days compared to 12-24 hours during those unhealthy vaseline days. Peeling area too has reduced but those adamant fordyce spots are still there.
I had very bad general health (fistula, allergic rhinitis, fatigue, personality and obsessive disorder, severe dyspepsia to name a few) and had lost all hope before i turned over to some major dietary and lifestyle changes last year and cured fistula in ano, yet another notorious disease, that recurred after treatment. I started practising yoga and deep breathing exercises, getting proper sleep, stopped taking processed food, sugar, refined flours, white rice (similar to montreal home grown's diet), quitted smoking and above all learned to feel contended with whatever situation i am in. Deep breathing exercises really help in improving mental health. Now except subdued ec and mild fatigue (i think it is related to ec) i don't have any other condition. Human body has unlimited ability to heal and if fistula can heal completely, i find no reason as to why EC can't.
The problem, however, is that sometimes following such rules becomes a bit frustrating like I ended up drinking badly last month after abstaining for months:)
