Hi people ive never posted here before but have browsed forums like this for a while and came across the mucus-free diet promoted by Prof. Arnold Ehret (i.e. plenty of fruits, green leaf veggies and some nuts) and, as many of you will know, with the About-Face Clear Skin Program.
Try www.arnoldehret.org (I bought his book The Mucusless Diet & Healing System and no this isnt an advert cos you dont need to buy it once youve read some of the website)
This was a last resort for me- initially I was sceptical about whether it was mucus that was the problem, or the waste/toxins. However, after a week and a half i seemed to start eliminating the mucus through my throat and experienced a few strange things on the toilet (er, basically weird mucus stuff coming out). After that i felt great n so was my skin. I stayed on the diet for a few months and felt so happy and wonderful, confident in myself. :angel you do develop and adjust your taste to fruit and veggies. I ended up relishing the thought of a big mediterranean salad (lots of avocado and artichoke) at dinnertime.
Id tried everything since the age of 16 (im now 20) including antibiotics, Dianette birth control, retin-A, and all manner of vitamins, minerals, herbs, the usual for mild (at its worst moderate to severe) but persistent (in my family too) acne.
But in just 3days my skin felt softer and supple, but also clearer, with a glow. After maybe a week and a half my skin looked great. A friend I hadnt seen for a while said my skin was amazingly clear and said wow I bet you never get spots you havent got a single one on your face
Some friends of mine and my housemates are vegetarian, vegan or vegetarian including my family so im very open to *natural eating* i.e how, as humans we should optimally eat. Also ive come up with some tasty ways of preparing it.
I know I feel wonderful eating like this but dont have the courage to eat like this with my family as theyll make judgements on me I know that. So right now ive come home for easter and am predictably starting to break out from eating a conventional diet :cry
needless to say i will be right back eating mucus-free after the easter break from college…
