I've been juicing for quite a few months now, and vegan (said it a few times on here already).. and although the gut thanks me for it.. my skin problems carry on behaving as they like.. I think some people like myself have to accept that we can't have perfect skin or iron guts .. everyone has a different temperament. Don't get me wrong, I think eating well and avoiding nasty chemically laden food is absolutely essential for mental health; I just shy away a little from the theory that a lot of us here (including myself) are suffering from some mild or acute disease. Besides EC and a few other complaints, I'm a pretty strong dude.. I just have to be more mindful about what I eat. Would be wonderful to eat cheeseburgers, drink coke and do all sorts of recreational drugs and booze all the time and look attractive to the opposite sex.. sadly for me one late night and a large pizza the night before means I look like a still warm corpse the following day. That's life, eh ?
