Candida Diet Working Wonders

There is a lot of interest in how what you eat can affect your rosacea. Some foods can cause a flareup in rosacea symptoms. Also the makeup of your diet in general will affect your health for sure and also your rosacea.

Hi.
I would like to share my more recent experience with you. I was diagnosed with Type 1 rosacea about 10 years ago when I was about 22. I tried everything I could get my hands on from OTC pills, potions, lotions, creams and topical antibiotics but never oral antibiotics – docs wouldn’t prescribe them for me. I’m 32, Irish and male but don’t have typical Irish skin complexion and tan easily. I had been having sleep problems from about 20 – 32. I was also diagnosed coeliac when I was 30 and became severely underweight. I still suffer a bit from time to time with gastro problems. I am very sensitive to food in general.

I first noticed the symptoms about 2 years before (I was about 20) when living abroad, I was having some gastrointestinal problems which later turned out to be coeliac disease. I could write an entire essay or book about my experience. I used to scour threads on this forum and the internet in general, searching for an answer and have tried almost everything under the sun! I had pretty much accepted the fact that I would have a flushed appearance, would flush inexplicably when watching TV on my own or out socialising/in work etc…you know how it is…

I’ve read that the causes of Type 1 rosacea can really depend on the person so maybe my experience won’t help everyone but hopefully will help some/someone. To cut a long story short, I started taking Inulin powder dissolved in a drink using warm water and cordial for a better taste. I started taking it because I watched a program about someone improving their sleep by drinking this. It had nothing to do with rosacea. At first, I didn’t notice any improvement to either my sleep or my rosacea but I had heard there were good studies to back up the sleep thing and persisted with it. After about 6 weeks, I started to notice that I wasn’t getting any more random flushes; my rosy red cheeks were not as prominent as they were and general sense of feeling hot had decreased significantly. I’ve been taking it about 10 weeks now and I can’t remember the last time I flushed for no reason. At the moment, I would still flush if out exercising or sometimes drinking alcohol (used to be all the time). Heat doesn’t really affect me although direct sun light does still affect me at this point.

I’m not saying I am cured but I am having a very positive experience with inulin and wanted to share as it may help someone. Two months’ worth would cost you about £20 so if you have exhausted all other options, give it a shot. It might or might not work. The trick is to stick with it though – give it about 3 month I would say. That’s only £30, then write it off or keep it up. I had a few other health concerns but I really believe that the inulin is working form me.
Hope this helps. Any questions, feel free to ask :)
