I have Psoriasis for 20 years. I took the original Hydroxycut (with Ephedrine) 8 years ago and lost weight through diet, exercise and tons of extra energy. I always took the recommnended dosage and didn't abuse it. I also drank tons of water as directed. My Psoriais disappeared completely, which at one point was on every part of my body and really embarassing. It cleared up even to the point that I was able to get naked in the middle the day at a bar in Key West. I know that the people reading this forum can appreciate that.
I have been racking my brain for the past 6-7 years to try and figure out why I didn't have Psoriasis that summer and just realized that it was the alkalizing effects of Ephedra. My skin is horrible now and I have tried everything from Holistic measures to whole food diets and they work but it always comes back even stronger because they are impossible for me to maintain.
I am going to try this stuff called Ximo that I found from another site or the Ma Haung Tea form or find someone in Canada to send it to me. It doesn't have the caffeine or asprin that was in all the Ephedrine products that were banned by the FDA because people were abusing it.
I am not a doctor and am not recommending any products, just brainstorming to possibly help someone that suffers as i do.
After I take it I will post my results to find out if it works for me.
