    I suffer from severe blushing will primal help??

    Primal Fuel
    Hey guys

    Just wondered if any of you have suffered from blushing, sweaty hands and sore skin etc??

    I tend to blush very easily and get really sweaty hands...

    I started to think maybe it was because of my diet

    fast food, crisps, cakes, cream biscuits, rice, pasta, potatoes etc etc

    now I have cut all that out and am just eating what I think is primal loads of meat, veg, salads, butter, virgin coconut oil, eggs, fish, nuts and fruit but not as much...

    do you think mt skin will improve?

    cheers

    I'm a blusher too! Processed foods and alcohol exasperate it, but even without those things (and gluten-free), I still have days where I get very red if I do anything strenuous.

    I'm actually looking into a theory that it could be caused by low stomach acid. How's your digestion?

    Also, for your sweating - did you ever check out a book called "Sweat Miracle"? It's one of those that you order online and promises to make you sweat-free in 10 days. Etc. etc!

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I blush a lot too. I've found that it's improved since going Primal, but that has more to do with me feeling less embarrassed (stems from anxiety). If I exert myself, I still turn very red! I think circulation may have something to do with it, and I know mine is somewhat poor, but it's been improving lately.

    My digestion is currently awful (after 8 months of chronic constipation, I'm self-diagnosing myself with IBS-C). Supplementing Betain HCL with pepsin didn't have any noticeable help, but I didn't use it for very long. I may try it again soon.

    really you suffer to?? have you found the primal diet helps?

    I had loads of tests but nothing found the cause

    I get worse when going from the cold to a hot room and after exercise.

    Ill look at that for my sweaty hands but my blushing needs attention more I guess it pretty much ruins my life

    If I exercise, I'm beet red. If I SMELL alcohol, I'm beet red. If I laugh, I'm beet red. You get my point. I don't think this is something one can change. I think it's just how your body works. Just my opinion.
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    I'm sorry that it affects so you much I know that some people get really depressed about it and even go for surgery.

    Have you checked if it's Rosacea Markus? There's three types of Rosacea, and one of them is basically just severe blushing, sometimes with broken capillaries. I have a mild form of it.

    It sounds like Rosacea.

    There are two things you could try.

    One is LED therapy: Does Photo Rejuvenation Infrared Led Light Therapy Work? | LIVESTRONG.COM
    There are clinics in the UK where you can get it done, or else you can buy a small handheld LED light and use it

    The other thing is investigating your gut health. I know it sounds strange, but the gut and the skin are closely related. Rosacea and other skin conditions have been linked to low stomach acid. How is your digestion?

    Oh, also these are obvious ones, but are you overweight? How's your blood pressure?
