I received this question today and I wanted to share my response for others who may have rosacea diet questions.

What is your main sensitive skin problem?: Rosacea

What problems do you face in taking care of your skin?: I already know to basically eat fruits, and vegetables. I don't know what menu idea's I can have salad dressing, Should I just shop in the organic part of the store. Help!

What is the best thing you've found on our site?: It is very thorough.

What would you like to see more of on our site?: Diet for healthy skin

Is there anything else we can do to help?: All your information on rosacea, I've tried everything. Should I just go gluten-free, or try the alkaline diet?

My reply:

Hello! I understand how overwhelming it can be to try and figure out which diet may help rosacea and which may make it worse.

First, I want to make sure you have all our resources. Did you request our free eBook?

In the download area you'll also see a free report on Food to Eat for your new Rosacea Diet, which you may find helpful if you haven't read it.

There is also another new report there that is a more general overview of healthy eating, Improve Your Health By Eating the Right Foods. You can get them here if you haven't already seen them.

Although it is helpful to buy organic fruits and veggies when you can, it is not always possible financially. Do what you can, and it is usually better to eat foods that are as close to their natural state as possible.

I would recommend that you make changes to your diet gradually, so that your body doesn't get overwhelmed with too much change.

Start by eliminating food that you know are not healthy for
you, or that cause outbreaks.

Add more alkaline foods, and then see how you feel as you let go of the less healthy foods.

Some people find a lot of relief from their skin conditions by eating a gluten free diet, others do not notice a difference.

I recommending making dietary changes gradually, so your body is not overwhelmed. Try one thing, then build on that. You may want to try the alkaline diet first, and if that produces few results, then try the gluten free diet.

When you have rosacea your body produces too much heat, and so drinking plenty of water is important, and also eating foods that are less likely to cause inflammation.

Avoiding foods that are processed, refined, and that have sugars and chemicals, preservatives and so forth are much more stressful on your body.

Our eBook contains a complete natural beauty program which will show you how to make some gradual changes to your diet in a way that will not cause too much stress on your body. You can skip right to the chapter on diet.

The main thing you want to do when you have rosacea is develop a good relationship with your body, by paying attention to what kinds of foods may help your rosacea, and which may make it worse.

If you create a strong intention within yourself to discover the kinds of foods that work best for your body, you will find that you begin to develop an intuitive understanding of what your body needs.

There are also some alternative health modalities such as acupuncture that have been very successful in dealing with inflammatory skin problems like rosacea.

Acupuncture works with the energy systems of the body to create more balance, and channel the excess heat into other areas so that you have less symptoms.

I hope these suggestions are helpful for you. Please leave a comment here and let me know how you are doing!
