carrots WORK.....end of story...
My sister HAD very bad Rosacea(age 36) and her mate and someone she worked with, her mate told her to eat 2 raw Carrots a day ,after years of taking antibiotics to cure it..... the carrots worked 100% for her and her mate, (and my sister had it bad and went to 3 skin care specialists)
Im sure you guys have tried this, if not give it a go IT does Work!!! with people of all skin types!,

I would not bet the farm on that strategy. Might have worked for her (or something else did) but if it were that easy, Rosacea would not be such a hard condition to cure.

It wasnt anything else periwinkle it was the carrots! yes it does sound odd but They Do work!!! takes about 3 weeks to start working, My sister and her mate stopped taking the longterm antibiotics and just use the carrots! My sister stopped eating the carrots for a few weeks a couple of years ago to see if it was gone but the rosacea did return so It was the carrots that worked!,She is totally used to eating the 2 a day now and has great skin!

Hi - Constantin here.

The reason carrots and certain harbal supplements help with skin conditions is because they go right in and calm the inner fire. Kale is another good one. Brocolli, beeets. All these hard, soothing, juicy vegetables are gold for the skin.

A salad every day with any of these mixed together does wonders.

And also dance and play as freely as you can. Rosacea suffers usually takes life way too seriously

Ok, let's all get one thing in line. Rosacea cannot be cured. The symptoms can only be lessened. The medical field still doesn't know what causes Rosacea and doesn't know how to alleviate it. The people that have it live in a world all their own. The mental suffering is worse than the physical suffering. Some of my patients that had Rosacea actually talked suicide, seriously. They wouldn't go out of the house, they hid from people, it's really sad.

I haven't heard of the 2 carrots a day, but it can't hurt. Don't overdue the carrot diet, or your skin will turn a slight color of orange, not kidding, it will. But you have to eat a lot of carrots, which some do, to have that happen.

In the meantime, keep your skin as dry as possible, don't use oily creams, a vegetable diet can't hurt and don't smoke. People don't realize it but smoking is probably the worst thing one can do to your skin. Tar and Nicotine go right to your skin.

Medical authorities have long perceived that Rosacea and nervous system have a lot in common. Oils on the skin have the tendency to aggravate the nerve endings IN some people. The nervous system in our body has yet to be defined. It's like the brain, there are many things we don't know. We know about kidneys, heart, liver etc. What causes the nervous system to act like it does is medicines guess. I know Doctors who have Rosacea and they say the same "can't you do something for me?, my answer is always the same. Treat the condition and lessen the symptoms and live with it the best you can. Anytime you dry out the skin, the irritation on the nerves seems to subside, this is true for acne and rosacea is along that line. So that's why I say keep the skin as dry and oil free as possible. Rosacea is just something we can't put our finger on definitively.

I hope Edensong will find this thread b/c she is an expert on oils, but I think you're dead wrong on the oils, Mike. I have never heard that oils aggravate nerve endings. In fact, quite the contrary. Drying out the skin calms the nerve endings in skin? That doesn't make any sense to me. Can you point me to your research on this or where you got this information? Thanks!

I'm 53, and have had Rosacea symptoms for 10 years. I used Cetaphil cleanser and lotion. Also used Metrogel. 2 months ago I started the Oil Cleansing Method (4 parts EVOO to 1 part castor oil). 1 month ago I started to do aspirin masks. I also started using nightly Vitamin C serum. The changes are amazing. I have not had one breakout of cysts in 2 months (I always had a few at any given time). My skin still sometimes gets flushed, but it is not as longterm effected by it. Scarring, redness, and spider veins have lessened.
Noone could talk me out of using the OCM now.

Thanks to Jack and all for a very interesting discussion.

Hey, Mike,

There's food for thought here. OCM means Lamb7 puts oil on his skin, and it appears to be working. Note that is all he was using at the beginning and getting results. (Did I hear that right?)

Now, to Jack and others for which carrots are shown to give good results, I have three questions--

1) What happens if carrot juice is substituted for the carrots?

2) What happens if the carrots are cooked before eating, does it still work?

3) Does the diet have enough fiber and vitamin A otherwise? What happens if you substitute another raw vegetable and take a vitamin A (carotene) pill each day? What happens if you substitute fish oil A?

We must be mindful that carrots have a lot of things in them besides vitamin A. Who knows? Could the effective component be a mineral? Potassium? A combination of things?

Personally, I would define "cure" as when you don't have symptoms any more.
