  1. Thats really great news! I'm really surprised your the only one trying... Lets hope some more people do. Keep us informed!
  2. Hey Mr Tomato. I think vegetarians are most at risk from suffering from excessive facial blushing and rosacea due to the limitation of their diet. I also would add flaxseed oil to your diet as we miss out on Omega 3's from fish and meat which have an antiflammatory effect. I take 3000mg Lysine, 3000mg Vitamin C and and a spoonful of Flaxseed oil everyday. That and eating well and exercising. The lysine and vitamin C is the most important supplements you can take for our condition however. Let us know how you go! Cheers
  3. Hi there, I used to post a few years back under the name Joninoxford on various Rosacea/ facial blushing forums, and a couple of years ago virtually gave up after two failed ETS operations, 9 photofacial sessions and 1000's of pounds spent on pills and potions. I have also posted this message on the Rosacea board too, but for me excessive Facial Blushing/ flushing is just early stage Rosacea, and therefore it is relevant here too. I started trying taking 3000mg of Lysine (an essential amino acid) supplement which also contains within the supplement Vitamin C (1000mg) and Zinc (20mg). Within 2 days the Rosacea has reduced around 50% and my unknowing work mates and friends have commented that my skin looks really healthy. I am 30, and wish I had known about Lysine before. I have been vegetarian for 25 years and therefore I was likely lysine deficient for all this time. The supplement is really cheap, I suggest everybody try it, you can get a bottle of Lysine and Vitamin C for 5 pounds or $10, very cheap thing to try. Now two weeks later I have been able to eat spicy foods for the first time in years without turning purple and have been able to run the heater in my car (always used to bring me out in massive flush, I was that sensitive!) and now can drive warm here in the chilly Melbourne winter. Give it a go, and report back on this thread. Lysine and Vitamin C is also said to be a possible cure for heart disease. The theroy is the the combination greatly improves cell membrane strength. This strengthening helps us rosacea suffers. Give it a go, cheers, Jon
