Hi All, I've been paleo for about 1 year. found PH late, because of my bro! Was very low carb for a while and didn't love it. fixed some issues, gained some weight, feel better. But, mostly, my skin has been terrible, except for the one week I did a gaps experiment - boiled zucchini, yellow squash, beef broth, and beef. I don't think I ate anything else. and I ate all my meals alone! It was "healthy" and unhealthy at the same time.
I guess I didn't heal my gut though, because the acne came back.
I plan on getting a metametrix test and food allergies test and changing my behavior based on those.
I hate this, I feel better, sleep better but I look sick. I can't wax about Paleo benefits even though it's fixed a lot of other problems because I'm obviously doing something wrong. I'm no picture of health.
(1) Has anyone used their metametrix test results to "fix" themselves? (with or without the help of a doctor?)
(2) Has anyone here taken anti-fungals, antibiotics (or even together), etc and are you still ok? I have this HUGE fear of medicine now, because it's what brought me here - many courses of antibiotics, four rounds!, misdiagnosis on the cause for my anemia, etc. etc.
(3) can anyone recommend a good support group for this, outside of acne.org? I mean, people who have really had mold, yeast, bacterial acne issues, eat a paleo type diet, AND have had metametrix (or other parasite, GI Effects-type testing) done? Anyone interested in trying it? My tests are expensive, but worth it to me. Tired of futzing around with supplements ($$$), foods, obsessing, and obsessing.
I'm so tired of being obsessive about what I eat. Thanks for your help.
