I suffer from HORRIBLE cystic acne that I have been battling for years now. Im at the end of the line as far as what I can take anymore. My face is painful and ugly.
Many acne sufferers are doing the "paleo" diet, which includes meat. And whenever I try and find help for my skin I get advised that I need to eat meat to get well. That the seeds nuts vegetables and fruits Im eating now are aggravating my acne. I eat mostly raw, lots of green smoothies, some cooked beans and rice and the occasional poached egg, and sometimes yogurt. Ive eliminated wheat gluten, msg, soy, most dairy products, and all trans fats, just in case any of that could be causing the problem. Ive done many cleansing and health protocols and my skin is still a nightmare.
It TERRIFIES me that I may not be able to get well being vegetarian. I feel vegetarian diet would be the healthiest, but the way I continue to suffer makes me worried this isnt the case. A lot of people say they are getting well from eating meat and the thought makes me so sick. Being a vegetarian means everything to me, but im getting to the point of being suicidal over my skin disease. I need help.
Have any of you cleared your skin while on a vegetarian diet? I dont mean a few zits here and there either..I have severe, cystic, hormonal acne. Its physically painfull. I dont know what to do, and Im ashamed to say Im even considering eating meat again. Please help.
note-ive tried about every acne treatment out there, like I said Ive been in this battle for years. This is why Im at the end of ideas.
