    Read an article in the paper today that said acne was linked to a high carbohydrate diet, not just chocolate that had been previously thought to contribute to it.

    Recommendation similar to those on this board regarding diet.

    Since there have been posts about acne, cysts etc thought you might like to know research seems to have started catching up with us.

    So if your not already trying a low carb diet and you have acne, this is surely worth a try.

    Incidently probiotics help too.

    There's really good info on the links between gut ecology and CFS posted by Pat Palmer. These theories have been around for a long time but docs still ignore them.

    Even if you can't afford supps, or don't want to take them, the diet alone can make a difference.
