    Talking Re: ACNE: The New Theory

    Hi...

    New here and very interested in this histamine theory. I am 35 5'7" 116lbs. (try to stay @ 120lbs) which is very thin for me. I have "adult acne" that seems to be incurable and is causing me tremendous amounts of stress. I also get sporadic skin rashes that itch like mad then go away. I have been to dozens of derms, esteticians, now holistic and nutrionalist. NOTHING seems to help..my goal is to gain weight and control the cysts like inflamed bumps I get on my chin and around my mouth& t-zone. Currently using doycline (sp?) plexion cleansing cloths, trying not to eat dairy or yeast, differen [email protected] night and duac in the am. Also..just started to take spirnolactone to see if that will help. ( it seems to make my nose run and make me sneeze!) Also I do feel a lot of times that my body is trembling from the inside out and lately it seems worst..
    My question is I saw one person said taking zantac helped her symptoms...isnt that for heartburn?
    My other question is how long did it take to notice the results from clariten? ( i really would like to try taking it but am afraid of taking 3 different meds at the same time).
    UGH I am overwhelmed and confused!!!

    Re: ACNE: The New Theory

    my only concern with taking the zantac is that it lowers stomach acid which might be detrimental to digesting ur food and getting the proper nutrients from it. many people with acne might have low stomach acids and don't digest well so i don't know about the zantac.

    Re: ACNE: The New Theory

    do u think it would be better if while taking the zantac you also take HCL supplements to ensure that stomach acids don't become too low?

    Re: ACNE: The New Theory

    Am I the only one still doing this? Speaking of that, where in the thread starter's daily routine did it say anything about Zantac(or whatever the name of it is in their country)? They listed what I just bought... right?

    Re: ACNE: The New Theory

    The descriptions of a histadelic given in this thread describe me to a TEE! However, I'm 22 now and I don't get pimples any more like I used to except for about one or two once a week on my back, but I do still have a problem with blackheads that I'd like to treat.

    Ranitidine 75mg twice daily
    Alpha Lipoic Acid 600mg once daily
    MSM 5g once daily

    Today I started taking the above and I will try to report back in a week with the results. I also plan on adding Zinc Picolinate 50mg and Vitamin C 2g to my daily supplement intake while adhering to a diet as detailed by kkpb in this thread.

    REMOVED
