I just read this whole thread, very interesting. I am a tall skinny guy who used to eat whatever I like. A couple of years ago I started to have dry skin issues on my upper lip. This then spread to my cheeks, nose, and eyebrows. I tried several different skin lotions with little relief. Then I became sensitive to deodorant. I had to switch to Dove and that worked. I tried just cutting back on gluten and my face improved. I switched to Udi bread as I took sandwiches to work every day. Just doing that alone and not eating things like donuts helped my skin. No beer either.
With sugar, I liked energy drinks on 12hr night shifts and would get bloated and have increased pain. I don't drink soda hardly at all now, and no candy or harsh sweets, just the rare small serving, and that has helped. Do keep in mind that any sugar free products trick your brain. It will actually make you crave sweets. My DW noticed this after quitting her diet Coke habit.
Processed food of any kind is not good for us. Eat as clean as you realistically can. You will feel better and your body will love you for it.
I have swapped out several door knobs for levers. They are just easier.I will email you soon, thanks! That would be great to try.The Biofreeze contains essential oils and ilex. It is my favorite of what I have tried and used by my chiropractor and massage therapist.View Thread
Thank you Mary, I am dealing with chronic wrist pain as well. I have not tried Stop Pain spray but I presume it is similar to my MaxFreeze and BioFreeze They use menthol and work very well for me. I use them a few times a day. I have had better results with these than with crèmes.
