oh lol i forgot to answer your question mikepylon. i started this experiment a little over 2 months ago. but like i said its really after the acupuncture that i started seeing drastic results. before that i could see some changes. but literally days after the acupuncture my lips peeling went down 90%. but it is interesting because my lips healed very similarly to what healing2012 seems to be going through. and i dont think he did acupuncture. because i do still have a little inflammation so i guess im not techincally completely cured. but its going down still.
