Hello everyone! I can't tell you how excited I am to finally make the decision to start posting and keeping myself accountable to the primal laws in PB. I have been on this site for a while now, close to a year, and my wife and I are committing to a better lifestyle. I know the 30 day challenge just ended, but we are starting our own challenge today. I look forward to meeting you all!!!
A little info, I have always been into working out, but my diet has failed me consistently. I am a perfectionist, so that has made it hard at times. If I missed one part of my workout, or ate something that wasn't good I felt I had to start over. I was looking for short term rewards as opposed to building habits. Well, I hope I can overcome that.

Hi TeaDub!! I am from Chicag and I too suffer from rosacea and am curious as to if the Primal woe is going to help it. How long have you been off of dairy?
10-17-2011, 08:31 AM
I have been off of dairy for approx 3 months. 6 months ago I gave up cow dairy, but was still consuming sheep's milk products, such as cheese and butter. Once I stopped all milk products I really noticed a difference.
Back in Feb/ Mar of this year I had a blood allergy test done, and the results showed a very high sensitivity to many cheeses, (including cottage cheese), cream, (including sour cream - which I always thought to be the nectar of the gods...), milk, etc. Goat milk products also showed a high sensitivity. But since the test mentioned nothing about sheep's milk my Dr. thought it would be a good alternative. Well it's not. (The test also showed a high sensitivity to gluten, wheat, yeast and some other grains.)
My last hold out was for butter. I had a difficult time parting ways with it. (I do use ghee once in awhile.) But once I eradicated all dairy it took about 3 weeks for me to have my great complexion back. (My husband even commented on it.)
Hope this helps.

OH NO butter??? That will be a tough one. I will let you know how things go, since I am giving up the dairy.
