I will skip the story of my life and go to the point.
I'm not a doctor but for what I've been reading for the last 5 years of my rosacea I can deduct that rosacea is not a skin condition and not caused by mites on your face.
I've been following my intuitions since minute zero and till now has proven to be at least going in a good direction.
My rosacea right now is in a good condition and "controlled". It's never been incredibly bad but it is now in a point that i don't mind at all. It has improved radically in the last 3 months and I will explain what I did to achieve that.
So this is what I've found to be related to my rosacea. This means that others might have different causes but this is what I find more plausible in my situation.
The keys of my findings that I think are most probable are:
First and the obvious:
The cause of rosacea does not lie in the skin. Mites might play a role in it but they are definitely not the cause but more of a consequence.
Second: Rosacea happens when your body is compromised. In my opinion happens either when body tries to get rid of toxics or by the mere fact that your body is poisoned. The result is the damaging of the skin.
Third: When having rosacea most of us can observe dryness of the skin. The more dry the worst the rosacea. This usually apply to eyes as well. In my case rosace affected my eye as well and had 2 cases of blefaritis. This can be improved by applying moisturisers. Drops in the eye and creams on the skin. I usually use plain nivea body milk (the one that contains honey) on my face. This creme does wonders for 7Ä per bottle last for 4-5 months or more. I apply 2 drops on my face every morning and if I see it's getting worst also at night. This keeps the skin of the face protected and moustorized all day. An organic super expensive cream would be much better but I don't have the money so this does it for me. I keep putting eye drops when I use the computer and I always have pain in my face due to dry eye but with the drops i keep it controlled.
Forth: The most probable cause in most of the cases of rosacea will be a compromised intestine. Most probably due to intestine infections,
either bacteria, fungus or parasites or a combination of them.
After all this years all comes to the same point, intestines. Since minute zero I started with a "diet" if i can call it that. Just keeping gluten dairy, red meets and Sugar out of the equation has proven to be really good. Proof is that whenever I would eat cheese or bread in 1 day I would have pustules coming. In bad days if I was eating some types of cheese I could even see pustules growing in 3 hours. Same goes with spicy foods, chocolate, coffee, alcohol, ...
Fifth: In my case everything points at parasites. My doctor started me on a protocol to try to keep them under control. Since there are many types of parasites stool tests are a bit a lose of time unless you very lucky and find them. In any case you could have even more types undetected. parasites have no digestive system and need (bad) bacteria in order to digest so that explains also bacterial infection in the intestine (when parasites die) and why the Antibiotics will not work (because they will keep coming from the parasites).
Sixth: Most of the people who suffer from rosace suffer also from depression. We tend to think that we are depressed because our face is red, and we don't want to be seen, but believe me, this is not true. And I repeat this might not be the case for everyone but people who is depressed with rosacea this might be the result of having a compromised digestive system and your body getting intoxicated. Well there is a big explanation for that but I don't want to extend too much. Just google Depression and bacteria or parasites or even Fecal Transplant and Depression you will see its quite interesting.
getting rid of it:
Apparently parasites are really difficult to see and even more difficult to get rid of. They migrate through your body and even hide in parts where you can not reach with anything. It is even more complicated when you add the fact that people around you (family partners pets) can be infected too and reinfect you even if they show no symptoms. So the perfect treatment is when you treat yourself and also the people around you. As I said before there are many types of parasites and they all follow different cycles so it gets very complex to know how to treat.
A protocol must be followed and it has to be done at least 3 times to begin with. This could take 3-4 months. After that you have to continue to avoid reinfection and let your body heal and restore your intestinal flora and intestine health.
I've done already 2 of the 3 cycles of the parasites protocol (for 2 months) and I can see a clear improvement on my face. During the protocol the first days I feel an overall improvement and by the end my eye is good my face is better but more important I feel much better and not depressed!
As a curious fact. Last week I had a problem after crazy night. Took too much alcohol and got really sick. Whent to the regular doctor and he actually suggested based on my symptoms (refered to my digestive problems after the alcoholic episode) that I could have or Heliobacter pilory or parasites. Coincidence?
I have to say that I have also detected myself something in my poo that could be a parasite. I will bring it to a lab to be tested. I will post the results.
So what do you think> any body agrees or disagrees? please comment and if you have more complete information or new findings please share.
