No Dairy Diet Acne
refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more
DANGEROUS, however:: A no carb diet would consist only of meat ; eggs; i don't know anyone who recommends this. It would result in many nutritional deficiencies, completely lacking vitamin c, fiber, flavonoids ; other phytonutrients essential for good health. There is lots of research showing benefits of a vegetarian diet but none on the benefits of no carb diet. However, many recommend a low carb diet. See comment:. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Balance the diet: A lacto-vegan has many choices for foods. A good nutrition book or a visit to a dietician can help form a balanced diet. Eating a big variety of foods helps prevent nutrient deficiencies. Also, one can take a daily multivitamin+mineral tablet. Lowfat or nonfat dairy products have plenty of protein. One can buy natural, gluten-free foods and cook them without adding salt, sugar, oil, nor vinegar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: These foods do not cause acne directly. Commonly, hormone changes cause acne which is why the teenage years are when most people get acne. Interestingly, taking probiotics and eating a healthier diet may change the skin flora (bacteria covering your entire body) composition and lead to less of the bacteria that do cause acne. This may ultimately lead to healthier appearing skin. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
I'm 23 years old n suffering from acne! i eat well no refined sugars no gluten no dairy and im vegan n take probiorics n supplements n i'm very active?
Diet's not the key: I'm sorry you were misled. Acne is basically unrelated to diet. If you were assured that being "vegan" or being "gluten free" would help your acne, perhaps this will help you understand that much of what these people have told you isn't true. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for Rx and workup for possible hormonal imbalance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not the key: Acne is only marginally related to diet and not at all to hygiene or lifestyle. You're wasting your time if you try to clear yourself with 'pop' experiments. Get some topical benzoyl peroxide, in a strength and frequency that you can tolerate. If you're not clear in two weeks, phone your physician for something to add. ...Read more

No: The last three real human studies of omega-threes for atherosclerosis / lipid problems showed no benefit. The vegetarian / natural foods people write about this-and-that benefiting this-and-that without needing any real basis, and there's an anecdotal peer-reviewed article, but nothing solid. Acne's treatable by 21st century medicine and if you need us mainstream physicians, we're here for you. ...Read more
Fresh eggs ok. : Eggs are not a dairy product, and if fresh and eaten soon after being well cooked should not be a problem to digest and will not have mold spores. Egg beaters which are pasteurized are ok too. Eggs have no residue ( which means they are low in fiber). That is a good thing if you have diarrhea. Good health ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
