I have been eating more bananas, coconut, chocolate, and nuts in general. It's difficult to avoid sweets with kids and husband around.
I did start taking fish oil, probiotics, and borage oil, so hopefully something amongst that works. :) Thank you, all!
Chocolate makes me break out the most...
Also my allergies get worse with bananas.
[QUOTE=JudyCr;1231124]It could be that you are still detoxing and the toxins are coming to the surface on their way out. Be sure to take a multi vitamin and drink lots of filtered water. Also, dandelion root helps a lot to purify your skin. Use a face cleansing brush with something like pro-activ cleanser. I've been using MARIO BADESCU products and like them very much.[/QUOTE]
+1 Dandelion is great, and detoxing does happen!
Probably from toxin buildup from excess animal products and maybe a down regulation of metabolism if you are eating low carb as well.
My scalp got really bad after starting paleo. I turns out nuts are what does it for me. When I first started, nuts were my "fast food" and I ate them fairly often. Eliminating them completely healed my scalp.
No, Zach. In a family of 5 meat has to stretch, meaning smaller servings per person. We fill up on veggies/good carbs. Besides protein toxicity and metabolism issues would more likely show up through digestion issues and sluggish energy.
From personal observation it's most likely the nuts. I haven't gone cold turkey but will soon.
I've been taking Mark's Damage Control multis for 7 months now. They are the best sourced I've found. They are expensive though. My skin became noticeably better in 3 months. I never expected this. It even seems to be shrinking, and age spots disappear slowly.
For 5 months I was taking only 1 packet / day. (There's 6 caps / packet.) Finally I read the dosage instruction printed clearly on the bottle. 2 packets are the daily dosage. So for 1 month I took 2 packet and felt worse. These multi's are way over RDA in most vitamins, minerals, etc. So I went back to 1 packet and feel fine.
After reading the links in this thread I think I'll switch to his lower dose multi, it's from the same great sources. His DC is for athletes which I am not.
My energy and metabolism is increasing slowly but steadly. I can't attribute this to the DC, it could all be the PB diel. But why stop something that's working.
