3 posts in this topic

Hi-

Since having beem diagnosed via biopsy and bloodwork I have been strictly abiding to a gluten-free diet. Here in lies the problem...I have NEVER had problems with acne (I am 41 years old) and since becoming gluten-free I have developed an unbearable case of acne that extends down my neck, chest and shoulders. Anyone know whats going on here??? Thanks in advance for your response!

Maybe rosacea? 30-50 years old is the most common time to be diagnosed. Although it's often called "adult acne," it's actually an inflammatory disorder. Do you blush easily? Is your skin sensitive to sun, wind, soap, skin care products, etc...? A good dermatologist could be very helpful.

I used to have this problem. At its worst it extended down to my buttocks. Avoiding sugar and going on basically a cave man diet made it go away. If I eat sugar it quickly comes back, esp. on my neck first. I used detox herbs (and still do regularly)--many of which I have discussed elsewhere here on the forum. Dandelion root and/or milk thistle caps plus yellow dock or Oregon grape root caps or the direct root boiled for twenty minutes or so should help a lot. Undigested proteins are going into your blood stream and causing your liver to be overloaded with toxins. Thus the skin problem. Healing the lining of the gut is essential--thus slippery elm caps and marshmallow root. Also bromelain/papain caps between meals to take down inflammation and with meals along with pancreatin for improved digestion.

Hope this helps!
