Our cellular structure in our front and back torso is changed with GD. Our collagen has separated and even when dormant I can feel tiny little bumps under my skin when it is pushed hard.
We all know how it feels when a breakout is beginning, just like you are experiencing. I think cilantro worked faster for me than some because I was only 1 month into a new breakout when I started using it.
I sure hope the cilantro gives you relief. On the earthclinic GD site Kimass1 referred us to, a man had a 6 year outbreak going on- like you never had a break during that time. He tried the cilantro and it worked. He was aggressive and desperate consuming bunches daily, I use about 1/2 a bunch. This worked for him and was ecstatic. Have you read the earthclinic blog?
Like you I limit natural sugar and zero processed (this has definitely helped my inflammation levels). My anti-inflammation diet allows only Stevia, an artificial sweetener. I simply put cilantro, a bit of Stevia, 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk and 1/2 cup pro-biotic yogurt (I like Stoneyfield whole milk yogurt) and blend. No fruit. I do have a Nutribullet blender, but with my wrist arthritis it's almost impossible and definitely painful to open, so have reverted to my basic Oster blender. It doesn't blend it as clear as the Nutribullet, but it's quick and easy and painless. Also a real flaw with the Nutribullet is cleaning of the gasket which is not meant to be removed. I noticed a sour odor coming from under it and it is almost impossible to remove to clean. With a basic blender cleaning is easy. Either way the cilantro turns to water. Just chug it down and my taste buds now find it acceptable, refreshing.
