I am the only one with acne all over that started at puberty. I have keratosis pilaris as well, I have digestive problems, and no one else in my entire family has ever had such bad skin as I do. Mostly my entire family fee up in the Caribbean and that is where I was born, but I can to the USA when I was 4. It doesn't make sense that only I would have such issues, when no one else does. I mean why should I have no probiotics, so many food allergies, leaky gut, and have to avoid all grains!? What happened to my body that didn't to theirs?

I am going to stop all grains, and I have a feeling that will help my acne, and I'm going to get an ELISA food allergy test soon, but I don't know if I will ever be able to eat certain things again, like rice

Why not make a trip to the D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition store in Williamsburg and see one of the Practitioners?

You might need some help to get yourself well. The food allergy test will tell you what not to eat, why not get a plan that tells you what to eat to be healthy.



I live in Port Washington--  

Quite possible you are a non secretor?

No no and no! I don't have that kind of money, I'm 18, double majoring in college. Look, I came to the forum for help, not people telling me to go elsewhere for help. If you can't help or put any logical input in, please don't tell me how to spend money

Wow---  

You never have to do anything anyone here says these are all suggestions.

Sometimes we need practitioners to help us.

@tolondontoparis: even people from the same family can have very different genetic profiles between them. So your question as to why you have health problems that the rest of your family doesn't experience is a question that can't just be answered like that: between the genetic and environmental factors there's so much that can play a role.

I think Andrea AWsec proposes that you see a professional, because to find an answer to your question, someone needs to take a much closer look than we could ever take, from the little bit of info you provide here.

Yup--- I have seen people go round and round-- till they see someone who in a matter of minutes figures it out.

Of course you do not have to go see anyone that is your choice--


You might be the only one who is a nonnie in your family (like Eric Morrison he is one of 7 or 8 boys and the only one who was ill) you might be a c section baby? never exposed to healthy flora, you might have taken loads of antibiotics over the years? I don't have the answers to these things.
But I can offer you the idea that University of Bridgeport is a great place and they might even take a portion of the fee if you speak with them and explain your situation.

This is up to you.

No need to be rude...

Try to not get so overwhelmed. You have to experiment and yes, that CAN be a frustrating experience but stress just makes things worse. Yes, you may have to avoid all grains (at least for a while). It's not the end of the world.  You will find there are lots of good replacements out there the more you explore this stuff. You just have to have a better attitude and an open mind.  Sounds like you're already on the right track with eliminating certain things and seeing how that goes.

As has already been indicated, there are MANY factors that can be at work to make you the "lucky" recipient of major discomfort.  Usually anything that happened prior to about 3 or 4 years old, you won't remember, and others may not either.  Without having a significant health history, we can't guess at the cause.  Also, two people won't have the same result from the identical input, so there is more potential for not knowing "why"...

You can work for years trying guesswork or you can spend a little time and money up front to get a solution from a very knowledgeable source and save yourself undue stress, etc...  I will tell you from experience that struggling for 30 years continuing to get less healthy is not a very productive plan.  It will take some time for healing to take place, but you should be able to see progress soon given the correct solution.

And here I was feeling really good a while ago when I saw Andrea's post and thought, "Wow, that is really sweet that she is reaching out in such a nice way!" And I still think so.

T - If it's any small consolation, I, too, am the only one in my family to have such severe allergies to nearly everything, and leaky gut. Mom had milk and strawberry allergies, (but she died of heart trouble, which runs in her family). Dad is allergic to penicillin.  My brother and sister don't seem to have anything. I, on the other hand, have leaky gut, lots of food allergies, molds, mildew, pollen, chicken feathers, cat and rabbit dander, several meds, chemicals, etc. Like you, I also cannot eat grains without a reaction, even rice. (I tried Rice Chex this morning, but no luck.) I had acne when younger, probably due to hormones. I've had ulcers twice and an infected stomach tube. I've had skin allergy tests and blood allergy tests. I think it's a combination of the genes I inherited, environmental factors, eating factors, and lots of stress. Try not to stress, though, because it produces excess cortisol, inflammation, more acne, and other problems. Believe me, I know what it is like to be going to college and have financial obligations.
All of that being said, though, hang in there. Do the best you can with your resources. I know it is not easy, and as someone who has been through a lot, all I can advise is try to get to the bottom of what is causing the problems. Try a diary of what you are eating. Eliminate all the foods that you know are offenders and after a period of time, try adding offenders back one at a time and note your body reactions.  Take, at the least, a good multi-vitimin/mineral supplement. I am doing the Dr. D'Adamo things to see if that helps. I've found that the people on this forum want to help and don't want to seem confrontational.

Thank You! I didn't mean to be rude to anyone, I just cry myself to sleep everynight because my skin ruins my life. I have already spent so much money, and I feel like I have been cursed. What's the point of living if everyday is hell! Anyways, you made me feel better, and I am trying so hard to get better! I think that by eliminating grains completely for a while will help, and the intolerance test. It's just hard to keep track of reactions, even with a food diary, because it could take an hour or days for a reaction to or skin rash to form.

Have you had your hormones tested? Perhaps they are out of balance. But don't take synthetic hormones. I wouldn't even do natural estrogen or progesterone cream unless you know for sure how your hormones test. Sometimes just a little tweaking can do wonders. Maybe a simple blood test for hormones could be worth the cost.

Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry!! I feel so evil!! I'm just sooo stressed out with my life in general! And you were so sweet offering to take me, since you live on Long Island! I will be headed back to Stony Brook on the 24th of August, and I am really quite money-less, stressed about trying to eat in college, and just so overwhelmed. I feel like there is nothing I can eat without my body going BOOM!

I totally just pulled a spoiled bratty child attitude! I apologize so much! It's not your fault, or anyone's, and you gave me the best advice you could! WOW I FEEL AWFUL!!!!!!!!

I am probably a non-secretor but could just be a secretor with a lot of problems. I was on antibiotics for so long when I had acne at 14, I always only ate fast food when little. My system is so toxic! And even-though I am eating healthy now, my body is still toxic, cause it can't handle anything. Although my stomach or body doesn't have any pain, I have terrible acne and skin, which is no coincidence. Maybe we can stay in contact, I would be honored if you said yes after my terrible attitude.

By the way, T, I absolutely understand how stressful college is. I went back to college in a strange state, in my mid 50s, to get a master's degree in a subject that was way different from my bachelor's. I took every class that was available during the day, nights, weekends, and the summer, so I finished my degree in less than a year. Talk about stress and not eating right. All I did was study, do classwork, and get a tiny bit of sleep. Had no friends or family around. No money for anything fun. But if you put your mind to it, T, you can do it. My daughters had to work full time while going to college because I didn't have the money. They made it. My youngest daughter also has the same food allergy problems that I have.

I know this sounds overly simplistic but are you drinking enough water?  Sometimes something as simple as that can help clear toxins from your system.  When you are able, Trehalose Complex might help with a number of your issues.  It seems to help your skin and your nervous system.

I drink at-least 9 glasses of water in the summer months, and a lot in the winter as-well. I love water with ice more than bottled water, and sometimes water in plastic tastes funny.

You may think you look terrible now, esp. when you are in an environment where you pay good money to become a "professional" in life, and .....all that commuting around on Long Island. But really, in a way I envy you that you have so many resources to turn to in 2012. In 1984 I was just where you are in life; then the 14 years of unresolved Bulimia (binging and vomiting) started (right after the heroic fight I had put up against acne, myself.) I think you're a Nonnie. I would not have solved the mystery of my own illness if it weren't for this forum. And if it weren't for this forum, I wouldn't have even bought a single D'Adamo item to help myself. I was that skeptical.

Oh wow! You're such an inspiration!!! How'd you do it then!? Cure everything by fallowing the diet? I'm sure I'm the only nonnie in generations of my family (so unfair, but oh well)

There are lots of reasons that you're the only one in your family with skin issues. It could be that you deal with toxins through your skin while other family members deal with toxins in other ways. For example, my 16 year old gets behavioral reactions when she eats off-plan, but her skin is perfect. meanwhile, my 17 year old has been plagued with rashes and other skin problems, but doesn't get behavioral reactions to the same degree that her sister does. Toxins affect both of them negatively, but this shows up mostly in the behavior/moods of one and the skin of the other. The one with skin issues has been helped tremendously with fish oil supplements. These supplements are pretty affordable and readily available- I usually buy them at Trader Joe's.

Are you the youngest in your family? Are you the only one who's  been eating "American food" since early childhood? That could very well explain why you have more problems than other family members.

I also suspec that you're a nonnie. Try the O nonnie diet for a while and see if that works better for you. If you don't already own a copy of Live Right 4 Your Type, borrow it from your local library.

And try not to feel like your skin is "ruining your life." Yes, I do remember what it was like to be 18, plus I have a child who's almost that age. But try to keep things in perspective. There's more to life than how you look, and REAL friendships won't develop (or fail to develop) based on appearances. Somebody who will ignore you when you're "ugly" is somebody you're better off without in your life. Somebody "beautiful on the inside" will see past the physical and get to know you no matter how you look.

Do what you can to nourish your body so your skin can heal. But remember that your skin will heal when it's ready, and it may take a while of healthy eating and supplementing before your skin reflects all that hard work. Don't let that get you down.

Yes! I am the eldest to my father, I have two little brothers who lived with their mother that cooked for the majority of their lives. And I am also the most African in my family, my two littler brothers are as white and American as every, but I received my mother's African genes. SO, I've been destroying my health from the begging of my time! And at the first sign of acne I was put on antibiotics, which only worsened thing. Do you think that someday after I'm all healed up, that I'll be able to eat certain foods that cause the reactions now? If not though, it will be worth it just to be healthyyy

Yes, once you're healed, you should be able to eat a wider variety of foods without reactions. It may take a few years to get there though, and things may  get worse before they get better if your body goes into "detox" mode. DD1 has been on BTD for about 3 years, and SWAMI for nearly a year, and finally her skin is clear!

You definitely need to have probiotics daily, since you have a history of taking antibiotics. Even if you can't find 100% compliant probiotics, you're probably better off  taking them rather than skipping them.
