It’s the Salt not the Fries

Iodides in foods

Iodides in foods


Salt with iodides can really make your Acne worse. If you shop the center aisles of the grocery store for packaged foods you ARE getting too much salt. We can’t stay away from all of these foods but you can eliminate as many as possible to remove some of the aggravators of Acne.

Many clients are trying to eat healthy by eating kelp ( very very high), seafood and bagged processed food. Try to make healthy choices when and where you can. It WILL make a huge difference in clearing your skin.

Milk and cheese are another big culprit. Not only does it have iodides, the hormones in them contribute to Acne. Many teenage boys drink gallons of cow milk and girls love the cheese and yogurt.  Both habit will  aggravate cystic Acne.

Health foods and supplements are not  as safe as you think. Many have iodides and/or biotin. Look for words like iodines, iodides, potassium iodide or kelp. Whey portein powders is also bad. Try egg protein or hemp.

Broccoli and asparagus are on the list for too much of the iodides. Please do eat green vegetable but limit the one with too much idides.

These foods DO NOT CAUSE YOUR ACNE…they aggravate. Reducing as many of the aggravators as possible will help your Acne protocol to work better and faster.
