Why do I get acne from raw protein?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Every time I eat raw protein (e.g. a raw egg yolk, meat that hasn't been cooked long enough) I get a zit between my eyes.

Face mapping says it means you have liver issues, and it is usually right about my acne (e.g. when I have allergies I get cheek acne, when I get digestion issues I get chin acne, now I don't have any issues/acne).

I don't remember the mechanisms but it has to do with minimizing the toxics of vitamin A. Leaning towards D a little bit isn't a bad thing. A toxicity isn't typically an issue if the A is Beta Carotene instead of actually vitamin A.

Why is the 10:1 ratio necessary? I take vitamin A and D because I had a vitamin D deficiency, and zinc heals my skin very fast, though right now I stopped zinc because I don't like supplementing.

I only got one zit in one month, so it's not a big deal. I'll try to look for better eggs (duck eggs?). Thanks!

Omega3-enriched eggs (is that a bad idea?) and irish beef, I don't think it's grass-fed but it's close.

What's the quality of the food? Are you eating conventional or grass feed meat and pastured eggs?

My skin issues resolved after supplementation with vitamin A (which I took with Zinc for kicks and giggles and be careful to maintain around a 10:1 A to D ratio). This also cleared up my dairy intolerance which was sort of a neat trick.

Omega 3 enriched generally means they're fed a vegetarian soy and corn based diet with additional supplementation in the form of fish or flaxseed oil. Perhaps it's an hormonal reaction? I tend to have hormonal disturbance when I eat soy or flax, so it could be down to that for you. Do you have access to fully pastured eggs? I would try an elimination diet and see if there aren't any differences between the eggs you're currently eating and the pastured alternative. Cattle in Ireland is predominantly grass-fed, but it's possible there might be some grain supplementation going on, you could probably contact the company/farm to find out for sure.

As for why it doesn't effect you when it's fully cooked, well... Not a clue :P But personally I think it's worth assessing the quality if it means you don't have to destroy all the deliciousness of a rare steak :)

Try to eat raw meat without the eggs and tell me your results. Blend in some liver pate or olive oil, if it's too dry for you. If i eat mono (some meat raw and cooked, some fruits, starches, no raw eggs, no veggies, no nuts) I've a better skin.
