Acne Testimonial & PWFD Question

Posted by Jared on February 15, 2001 at 17:10:24:

I just wanted to drop a note to say that after 3-4 months of doing a Whole Foods diet, my acne which had recently developed during the stressful past year has all but disappeared. In fact, I can't seem to get any blemishes on my face anymore and my pores have gotten much smaller; I received many comments about this radical change. If I hadn't found Dr. Stoll's excellent website, I believe I still would have this frustrating condition.

Also, the psoriasis I have had on some of my nails since 2nd grade has gone away, as has my midday fatigue; I have been doing some aerobics and not enough SR (which I plan to change)

Furthermore, I have not gotten sick on the whole foods diet except once, which brings me to my question: THe three times I have started the diet ( I had tried to stick with it twice before this past time), I have developed a terrible sickness 2-3 days into it (when PERFECT). This is marked primarily by gastrointestinal distress, burning gas & diarrhea, headache, nausea, insomnia, and excessive belching that is accompanied by an "odd taste" that only appears when I am getting sick. It lasts less than 24 hours; I have learned some of the symptoms may indicate the body trying to detoxify itself (especially the burning diarrhea). THe worst sickness occured when I cut out fruit for the first couple of days too. However, I was wondering if Dr. Stoll or anyone else with similar experiences and could shed light on what could be causing this.

Thanks,
Jared
