I am dealing with leaky gut. Aside from a paleo diet, I'm taking many supplements to heal the gut and to help out my liver. I have rosacea (papular/pustular) as a result of my leaky gut -- what my liver can't process winds up coming out of my... (more)
Could anyone share some more light on this. I started Paleo because of immune-system problems and skin issue. They put on of those permeant retainer things in my mouth when I first got my braces out during my adolescent years. I specifically... (more)
For the past month I've been doing VLC, possibly ketogenic( I don't know because I knock myself out of it with carbs on the 7th day.) I do feel amazing though on LC and workout 5-6 times a week, with no dips in energy. On the weekends I like to... (more)

So, Violet9 suggested this a while back but I didn't think my persistent and untreatable "acne" on one specific part of my nose was rosacea (d'oh). After doing some more research, I am almost positive that is what it is. I'd like to avoid going to... (more)
So I got a hormone panel done (saliva) on day 21 of my cycle (I'm not on any hormonal birth control so my menstrual cycle is natural). Estradiol - 1.6 pg/ml [normal range 1.3 - 3.3] Progesterone - 88 pg/ml [normal range 75 - 270] Ratio Pg/E2 -... (more)
There have been several questions here asking people to hack stubborn acne that does not respond to paleo lifestyle changes. Some PH-ers have been strict paleo for well over a year and still have not seen results in their skin. I thought I was... (more)

I have tried low carb paleo, zero-carb paleo, no starch paleo, and I am currently trying the autoimmune version of Paleo. I am 20 days in and I still see no improvement. Has anyone had any type of success with rosacea? If so, what worked for you? (more)
I recently read that mint or cinnamon in toothpaste can contribute to rosacea and periodal dermatitis. Can anyone suggest good brands / homemade recipes they have had success with that don't contain mint or cinnamon? Thanks in advance.
