Thanks, Gals...I would have thought my liver was cleansed as I've eaten a pretty healthy diet (with the exception of dairy/grains) over the past several years. But there could be something toxic in there lurking...I'll look into that and in the meantime, bump up my consumption of dandelion root tea--supposed to have liver-cleansing properties...the flushing has mostly stopped, but the left ear is still driving me nuts!

I've had that itching ear from time to time.  At one point, I had a toe that itched also!    I finally concluded that it was my body reestablishing its' equilibrium, and what that all means, I still don't know.  

I tried treating it with soothing oils, anti-fungal oils, antiseptics . . the only topical thing that really seems to help is Emu oil, which I have come to love.  And I was going to suggest that for your other skin issues also.  It is mild, non-irritating and akin to our own natural skin oils.  It is anti inflammatory.  I have healed pre cancerous skin spots many times by using it consistently.

And, as far as lotions, Dr. D's lotions are the hands-down best I've ever used.  They really help to eliminate wrinkles and dry patches and make the skin look radiant.  But I still supplement with a little Emu oil.

Victoria,

OMG, OMG!  I have an itchy toe, too--again, left side...went to doc last week and it's not a skin thing at all--they gave me awful cream anyway, just in case.  I've been spraying my skin with a mix of purified water, almond, olive, lavender and rose oil.  Only a tiny, tiny bit of each in a spritzer filled with mostly water. This has become my face moisturizer.  I mist it on before a dab of cover up (at 47 there are many spots to cover) and that's my make-up.  It has made my skin wonderful and is far cheaper than all the expensive creams I've tried and wasted.  My skin is fairly oily for 47--I'm thinking this mostly water mister thing will help it regain balance.  Someone else suggested mixing apple-cider vinegar with purified water.  She mixes half-half, which I felt was too strong...I have been doing that periodically on my face as a toner, with a drop of lavender and rose oil in the whole mix, and it makes my skin so soft!  Not in love with the ACV smell, but it fades.  Also keep a mister with water, oils in the shower, too.  It's all mostly water, but it really seems to make my skin nice. I shall have to try the emu oil the next time I get to the market--does it mix well with water and other things?  Been using olive oil on the hands and rinsing off excess with warm water.  Also was looking for something for a couple of pre-cancerous spots I have on my face.  They are too small for the doctor to do anything about, but I was wondering about that and I'm so glad you mentioned it!  Thanks!    I agree with you on the itchy thing--it's either a re-balancing thing or an allergy thing, not truly a skin thing at all.

Owner of our HF store was give samples of Emu oil, it was very good, she even made the comment that she used on her face. I can understand way it was not greasy and felt great thought I'd get some next time i go to town. Glad to hear someone who uses and not just trying to sale.

I've noticed that most soaps can irritate my skin and cause rashes if used on a daily basis. Try using soaps that are all natural and contain as few ingredients as possible. I have been using Kiss My Face for years (Ingredients: Saponified Olive Oil, Water, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender), Sodium Chloride, Fragrance). My skin looks and feels great, if I do say so myself . Years ago I had a persistent rash on my feet for which I was prescribed hydrocortizone cream. A few weeks after I started using KMF (on the BTD) my rash began to heal, and I no longer have the rash.

I use KMF to clean my body, face, and hair. I also apply a thin layer after showering as a moisturizer for my body and face, and even my hair as a leave-in conditioner! It's a great all-around soap, shampoo and moisturizer. No other products needed, except maybe some essential oils for occasional blemishes. It's awesome stuff.

Any one else find some good soaps out there? Any comments on Kiss My Face soaps?

Welcome, de_nogent!  I love the Genoma Skin care line--it's pricey, but not any more so than going to the Clinique or like counter in a dept. store.  They do not have any kind of body wash or body lotion...I don't want to use those on anything but my face because that would get real expensive really fast.  

The Kiss My Face--are you using the liquid facial soap, specifically?  And, it's also a moisturizer?  Do, please tell which one you use exactly.  I think I can get that for reasonable price at my local Vitamin Shoppe or T-Joe's.

I just use the regular KMF lavender bar soap for everything. I've also used the green tea version which is good. Some of the other KMF products have some avoid ingredients, but I haven't researched them recently. The bar soap works very well for me; it's the only product that I use on my skin (besides sweet almond oil and essential oils).

KMF is marketed as a moisturizing soap, but not specifically as a leave-on skin moisturizer. However, I figure that the ingredients are all natural, olive oil and lavender/green tea is great for your skin, so it couldn't hurt. It doesn't feel greasy at all; you won't know it's there. It's worth a shot. Good luck!

Thanks, I'll have to give it a try...I love lavender and use the oil around the house for a variety of things, including in spritzers mixed with tea tree oil for mosquito repellent, in the bath...it's great stuff!  

The idea of using bar soap as a moisturizer sounds a little interesting...how do you do that?  Just lather it on and leave it?  i'm guessing it's not lathery like regular soap, given the ingredients.

Good question. KMF is quite different from other soaps you may be used to. It's a deep olive green and semi-transparent. When you wet the soap it becomes kind of slimy, but it does produce a very light and foamy lather. There are no dyes or additives, so it's basically just like putting olive oil on your skin. Before leaving the shower I apply a thin layer to my body, face and run it through my hair, then towel dry. Don't worry about any remaining bubbles, they won't cause water marks or streaks  . The soap dries perfectly clear without any noticeable residue. I wouldn't be surprised if our skin pores just ate it up as soon as it hit them.

Note: Kiss My Face soap should be kept high and dry. Use a soap dish that allows the soap to drain, otherwise it will deteriorate very quickly and turn into a big slimy mess.

I found a "silicone soap saver" at organize.com. $9 after shipping. Looks like it will work.

Wanted to let you know I've been using the KMF lavender soap and I LUV it--in my hair, conditioner, moisturizer--wonderful stuff!  I actually towel dry, then wet my hands and make a little moisturizing lather for hair, arms, legs...it dries really fast and my skin is super soft AND it stays moisturized.  

Mine is brown, though?  I checked the ingredients and they are as you said, olive oil, lavender, fragrance, sodium chloride...hmmmmm.  Maybe you were talking about the green-tea version.

Anyway...thanks for recommending!

Robyn,

That's great to hear! I'm happy to help.

I'm sure there are variations in color with the soaps. KMF is kind of greenish/brownish in color.

Quoted from Robyn Mc
Question:  Has anyone out there found body lotion/products for type o's that don't have irritating factors? I've been having an itchy skin problem (mostly upper body) along with scalp.  Been using purified water with lavender oil, almond and a drop of olive oil--but nothing seems to help and all seems to irritate.  I did get a lot of sun over the summer so my skin may just be going through a fall adjustment/rebellion, but if anyone has suggestions, I would appreciate!  The itching started prior to the diet change...I don't think it's any kind of detox thing--no rashes or anything--just mild itching/burning sensation.  


Hi Robyn,

Congratulations on your tremendous success!

As another Type O Non-Secretor also with leaky gut syndrome, I can tell you I also have bouts of rashes and itching--on my scalp and thighs.  I have discovered that when I eat corn products (including corn starch, maltodextrin, corn syrup, citric acid, sorbic acid, dextrose, etc.), it leaks into my bloodstream and my immune system responds--the symptoms don't kick in until 2 days after eating the corn products and they last for 3-4 days--they include these rashes and itching, fibromyalgia, muscle pain in most muscle groups between my chin and knees, and tendonitis in my larger joins (shoulders and legs).  Staying away from corn and all the corn derivatives completely eliminates these symptoms.

Also, I noticed that you said that you have apples pretty regularly.  They are actually an Avoid for Type O Non-secretors, so I wanted to point that out to you.  They might be causing some discomfort that you could easily avoid.

Good luck!
