Try a zinc tally test AKA zinc challenge.  This is a liquid form of zinc that you'd put a few drops of on your tongue and taste.  If you notice no taste at all, i.e. just like water, then you need zinc.  The stronger the taste, the... (more)

So I had an abscess about 5 years ago on my face and the sack is still inside? Any idea on how to get rid of it non-surgically? If I have to get surgery, how much would it cost?

I guess is because once you don't eat too much carbs, you lose water from the muscles at the beginning. I think you should drink more water. But i'm not an expert, sorry.

This may raise some eyebrows....but I found that my over consumption of O3 rich foods made my skin drier and more prone to acne flare ups. Also, prior to this i was basically low carb paleo which probably exacerbated the skin issue. I have since... (more)

Sounds to me like it's histamine intolerance. My guess would be that you've impaired your copper status via zinc supplementation, which has caused a downregulation in the activity of diamine oxidase (a copper dependent enzyme in the gut that... (more)

A mega-dose of a non water soluble vitamin would work great since you can store it in fat - like vitamin A. However, vit C and zinc are water soluble so you'd just pee out the excess and be deficient again in a few days without a regular dose. (more)

Depletion varies. If you have a high need for vitamin A (retinol), you can quickly deplete any stores. We do have a limited amount of ability to absorb vitamin A (retinol) and beta carotene. You might consume 1000% of vitamin A (retinol) in a... (more)

Omegas help skin too, eat more fish (yes - it can be affordable) and/or take supplements. I certainly notice my skin stays clear when my omega intake is maintained.
