one of my Australian friends recently recommended the Failsafe/Elimination Diet (run by Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney) as a way to determine if I have food chemical intolerances. I've had rosacea for a few good years now, and have yet to discover what my triggers are, so I've been quite interested in this.
Here's more info: http://www.sswahs.nsw.gov.au/rpa/all...l/handbook.cfm
and also http://www.plantpoisonsandrottenstuf...tion-diet.aspx
I've decided to give it a go, and am on Day eight - with a further three weeks remaining until I can start adding foods to my diet in the form of "challenges." It's pretty hard. Unlike these usual type of things; I am able to eat wheat/dairy/meat/sugar (with restriction of course). But the food is very plain/bland, which is hard for me.
So far the results have been really impressive; and in only eight days! My skin redness has reduced significantly, but more importantly to me - the texture has improved. In the last three days i've had only one pustule, which is great for me. My skin also hasn't been itchy.
It's only early days yet, so I'm aware these improvements could just be the 'ebbing and flowing' of my condition. I'll post back at the end of four weeks to see if my symptoms have cleared. If so, I'll be jumping for joy!
Anyways just wanted to post here, and see if anyone else has tried this for rosacea treatment? It's big in Australia, but not so much elsewhere.
