    This stuff is coming out bizarre.

    I just made a combination soap: Flax oil soap, Pumpkin oil soap, avocado oil soap, Sesathin soap, and coconut oil soap.

    Weird...just weird, with such a cool natural scent. It will take approximately 2-3 days to cure, then I will be ready to send these out to test.

    I also have the initial batch ready to go now...just playing, and trying to make it better.

    Well I PM'ed cboesger and asked him for permission to see if it was okay to try this soap. He gave me the O.K ( Thanks man! Your the best) Ill be willing to test it for you guys if you still need me as a tester. Ive been proned to acne break outs in the middle of my best (insane breakout) and scattered acne on the back. Just the other day i was thinking about going to the pharmacy to buy like clearasil soap to help with the acne.

    I would love to try this. I have some facial/back acne. Used to use topically applied salylic (sp?) acid from otc stuff, then clindamycin transdermal, and then i used benzaclin (5% benzol peroxide with monocyclin or some form of transdermal antibiotic) I also used the oral antibiotic but that irritated my stomach quite a bit. It cleared up really well for a while but started coming back a while ago. I would love to try this.

    If you're still looking for testers, I'd be interested. I'm always getting zits, and telling people on AM about how they pop. So sinner testing this (provided it is successful) is a win/win situation. I get less zits (win for me), and I have less gross stories about a big one that exploded white puss nastiness all over my bathroom mirroR (win for you....unless you're into that kinda stuff).

    That was one of the warnings I saw on the label, I think I've taken every prescription acne drug there is. The doc eventually took me off minocycline because "it wasn't powerful enough".

    I switched doctor's when they were getting ready to switch me to accutane (I think it was accutane, I was 14 when this happened). The doc rattled off several of the nasty side effects, and my parent's said "Goodbye".

    lol. side effects include? I heard about accutane having tons of side effects but what are some of them? I believe that it causes you to sweat less by closing your sweat glands of some sort?

    Increased triglyceride levels. I think he mentioned something about it affecting cholesterol. Headaches. Muscleaches. Depression (thoughts of suicide). He pretty much told us "This is pretty dangerous, hardcore sh*t." and it's only given for very severe cases.

    wow. thats crazy. Ive heard of the cholesterol part before. as well as depressions. I think those are just some of the sides tho as theres probably a list of it ( birth defects for pregnant women ) and such. I dont think my acne is hardcore enough to take accutane. altho nothing else seems to be working.

    Yeah the side effects are definitely something to be aware of with accutane. But once you've run the gamut of prescription topical creams and gels and antibiotic pills, accutane is the next logical and most potent step. Drawbacks are definitely the monthly blood tests (checking liver values I believe) and susceptibility to depression and everything that can come with that. Your doctor will know what's right for you after you take the initial blood tests and answer his questions.

    It is some crazy stuff though...I took it in high school after I tried many other options without much ado. First your skin gets EXTREMELY oily...it's pretty ridiculous. Then it jumps to the exact polar opposite and dries up like a desert...so dry that your skin peels off all day. Then after that your skin returns to normal and your acne is basically gone.

    There's really nothing to fear with accutane as long as you listen to your doc and keep him informed on your status (and don't drink or do roids duh ). If you go in with the fear of depression you probably will have already planted the seed in your mind and it could possibly happen psychosomatically.

    I was on tricycline through high school, in college everything was manageable for some reason, and then 3 years after I suddenly started breaking out really bad. Very odd.

    Minocine works 90% effective for me. The only thing I hate about it, is if I go off I instantly get bad again. It made me consider the more permanent accutane...but I don't think I care for those sides.


    I still feel like myself when I'm on it, and haven't noticed any other sides.

    I'm trying to think....

    Is mino- the one that made me vomit uncontrollably if I took on an empty stomach?

    I think it might have been doxycycline or ampicilin.

    Either way, all these acne meds are crazy, I don't take them anymore.

    Sounds like some good stuff.

    I noticed I started to break out a little, which might be from Napalm, but the OG Java Lather seemed to take care of it real fast????

    you were probably irritated from the alcohols in napalm, and the java lather moisturized the area.

    Definitely in to test this. Have very light skin and prone to redness overall, scarring, etc. Back acne of course exacerbates the problem.

    Same here, I have a Swedish/Irish background, and have suffered from acne and redness through out highschool and it has stayed with me even till this day. I can't remember when I didn't have acne problems, that's how bad it's affected me. I've tried numerous over the counter cleansers but most just dry the hell out of my sensitive skin, which gets to be really frustrating. I'd like to give this a shot and see how it works.

    I think its starting to, i'm about 8 days in now. I've gained about 5-6 or so pounds and i'm confident its lean, plus getting a little bit of mood elevation and I think also joints are feeling better. Its from Charles Poliquin's recommendations, i'm going to do it for the next few weeks and see how it goes.

    How much DHA/EPA ??

    I think this is a very irresponsible recommendation by Poloquin, unless he has justified it somewhere ...

    Are you taking in other fat sources, I would imagine a variety would be much better than a heaping of fish oil..avocado and sesamin are both fats I've found to be pretty skin-friendly

    Why would it be irresponsible? USRDA for a 2000 calorie diet is 103g of fat total for the day, so whats the harm of 1/3 of it being fish oils vs other oils? Is beef or pork fats that much better for you somehow?

    In 5g worth of what i'm taking its 554mg of EPA and 369 of DHA. so

    EPA - 3324mg
    DHA - 2214mg

    a 4-capsule serving of Biotest's Flameout:

    DHA: 2200 mg.
    EPA: 880 mg.

    So dha wise, taking in 30g of fish oil is about equivalent to flameout's normal dose, has lots more EPA. I take 6g of CLA a day too.
