Thanks for your response. I personally cured my severe acne in 3 weeks from a low glycemic raw food diet.

Nice, i heared many testimonials of people with type 2 going on raw foods and getting off insulin completely in 5 days, check out dr. gabriel cousens book "their is a cure for diabetes" if you'd like the fast track but i don't recommend the diet to maintain health, more like a healing diet than anything. Peace and thanks for the answer

Yes, they're the same same coin in fact, not even different faces. Paleo should help clear this up. My husband stopped snoring even by just going plain gluten free.

usually moderate but during breakouts it was severe. 5-6 months i'd guesstimate.

You think paleo would help with snoring if it helps with sleep apnea? Nice to hear another mess cleaned up. Thanks Eugenia!

So glad I found this site.

I began Paleo, strict, 17 days ago..... at the time I had out of control blood sugar & was injecting 40 units of insulin 4 times a day, and my blood sugars were often in the 150-200 range, and never in normal range even at fasting. AND I felt so sick all the time. I was at the end of my rope really. So Paleo was my last hope for eating. After 2 days on Paleo my blood sugars began to be normal to low and I had my last insulin injection about 10 days ago. I am having normal and lows all the time, have even cut my glipizide in half and feel so much better. I also started aquacize nearly daily and am resting better too. Paleo has turned my life around, instead of feeling about 10% of my old self I am at least 50% back, maybe 75%, most important is how I feel and that I am not injecting insulin 4 times a day anymore. I may make it afterall.

I had holes in the center of my palms where the skin was broken, bleeding, kinda like peeling in deep layers. One hand suffered for ten years like that. The second hand started 5 years later. Doctors would only give me steroid creme and said there wasn't a cure. One year of being gluten free and paleo (I follow The Perfect Health Diet by Paul Jaminet), my hands are healed. I make bone broth on a weekly basis using joint, marrow, and shank bones. I think that this helped tremendously. The joint bones are supposed to release a long chain after simmering for 12 hours or longer which set off the quick healing cells in our intestine. It was when I added this to my foods, my hands healed 100%. No drugs, no cremes. Just paleo eating with safe starches. I knew there had to be a way to heal--and I found it!!!!

I had blood sugar problems, was prediabetic. I had severe sleep apnea, acne, and was getting frequent infections, including a terrible incidence of lymphadenitis.

I am not sure when exactly all that changed, but a year later my blood sugar was exactly in the middle of normal range, my skin had cleared, my sleep quality was much better, and I had lost almost a hundred pounds. So, win win.

used to have painful back acne. Stopped eating dairy..that helped a little. But once I went full paleo it helped a lot. I'd say this whole process and transition into paleo lasted about a year. The acne lingered into paleo but was cured months later.

I still have some, but it's very mild and I'm never embarrassed to take my shirt off anymore.

I'm a type 1 diabetic and within one week of eating paleo my bloods glucose levels became MUCH more controlled and I now require about half of the amount of insulin. It's amazing.
