for me Starch gives me Skin Issues (all Grains), makes me tired, i gain more fat. fruit, fruit juice and cane sugar dont do that. its probably not bad to add sugar, if you are not doing so well on a ketogenic diet or a diet with starch.

Very likely that bacteria will grow.  If sea water helps your skin, it's likely you're missing some minerals such as magnesium.  You can try "magnesium oil" or epsom salt baths and the like as well as a good magnesium supplement, for example.

You're not actually eating beans, right?  I notice you say you removed soy, but then you're using Beano to get rid of gas, which you'd normally eat if you're eating beans. :)  Hopefully that's not the case and you're only using Beano as a... (more)

You're not alone! For me it wasn't kombucha, it was chia seed pudding. While my reaction wasn't quite as strong as yours (thankfully), the general outline was the same. FYI: I've learned that I don't tolerate sesame seeds very well either.
