This is not the first time I have read such accounts. There is a lady on this forum who went from a rosacea free vegan diet, only to develop rosacea when she changed to a meat/fat diet.
I find meat/fats fuel my rosacea, but avoiding them doesn't eradicate it. And of course, everyone needs some fat.
Dairy is also a huge trigger for me.
Coconut oil, fish oil, even olive oil are like adding gasoline to a fire in my case.
Me aside, I would be interested to hear anyone's theories as to why paleo can trigger rosacea/flushing.
How about hearing from Mask, who, reads much of same gut related literature as I do.
Also, where do you stand on the theory that the mouth harbours the same or similar infections as the gut?
Dr Paul Jaminet has suggested that too low a carb diet can promote fungal infections. This might have happened to the above mentioned paleo dieters.
I tend to feel this is a worthy suggestion as last year I barely ate any carbs and for a while I did really well. The best I had in ages as a matter of fact. Then I developed fungal infections of the skin. I had a lot of stress soon afterwards and this triggered major flushing again, but I am pretty sure if I had skin fungal infections, I likely had and still have, gut fungal infections as well.
I am currently being treated by a specialist for gut infections, but I still feel that many of us have some kind of infection in the blood vessels as well. Perhaps if the gut were fully functional, it would take care of the rest.
