People who suffer with acne and other skin problems could benefit from a low sugar or sugar free diet. This can be a challenge to begin if you already consume lots of hidden sugars that appear so abundantly in packaged and pre-prepared foods. Refined white flours, high fructose corn syrup, maltose, dextrose, and cane sugars are just some catalysts in the wide realm of hidden sugars.
By learning how to identify hidden sugars and how to prepare more whole grain high fiber carbohydrates over refined flours can help acne and eczema like skin conditions. Be sure to test yourself for common dairy and wheat gluten allergies before venturing into heavy wheat, barley, oats, and rye products. These are growing sensitivities and may worsen skin problems for people who are allergic.
By lowering and eliminating sugar intake and food allergies, you can help digestion problems get back under control, gain energy, lose weight, clear Candida, and get healthier skin.
Success in Clearing Candida for Clear Skin
By going sugar free for an acne diet, you can avoid a lot of foods that contribute to high inflammation levels within the body. In addition, if you suffer from Candida (overabundance of yeast), a common trigger of acne and other skin problems, it can worsen with sugars and refined carbohydrates in the diet.
Learn about whole grains and fresh food diets from a nutritionist familiar with Candida and food sensitivities.
This can greatly help in discovering the amazing world of sugar free food choices and how to prepare them. One of the greatest tools for success when changing your diet to improve your health, is to learn how to cook and prepare the foods that are good for your individual disposition and health concerns.
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for Acne
Acne can be triggered by an overabundance of something called damp heat in traditional Chinese Medicine. This can be related to many imbalances such as Candida, fungus, underlying bacteria, and infection in the body.
By clearing damp heat with Chinese Medicine within the stomach, lungs, or intestines, many people can find relief for their acne. Poor digestion and detoxification can contribute to this imbalance. By seeking help from an acupuncturist and learning diet modifications for your particular imbalances, many skin ailments can be helped and cleared.
Watch out for Aspartame, Splenda, and Sucralose
Try using more natural healthy sugar substitutes in moderation like Stevia Extracts, Raw Dates, and Agave Nectar, not aspartame or nutra sweet type substitutes as these are being linked to neurological disorders.
Go sugar free without the toxins by sticking to plant based sweeteners that have not been derived and changed to such an extent that the side effects of these chemical properties are unknown and understudied.
Sorry Starbucks Thumbs Down on Splenda
Splenda is now being linked to intestinal problems and potential carcinogenic studies because it contains sucralose. Behind the natural looking packaging, Splenda also contains chlorine and other hidden chemicals.
There is much debate over what sugar is safe. Always consult your physician and nutritionist first.
There are different glycemic indexes for honey, maple syrup, cane sugar, rice syrup, and corn syrup. They are not the best for many sugar intolerances. They are more natural, but still sugars none the less.
