Skin Moles
« on: February 27, 2011, 02:26:43 am »
What causes skin moles? Does diet have to do anything with it? Would raw paleo remove them over time? I believe I've read people eating raw chicken and within 2 years the mole began to itch and fellow.

My moles and other benign skin lesions have gradually been disappearing since I started eating Paleo, but when I mention this to people they just dismiss it as something that happens naturally with age in people. To me that seems like too flimsy a dismissal that doesn't explain why I was developing more and more moles and skin lesions while eating modern foods and then when I switched to Paleo they started disappearing. It seems like too much of a coincidence of timing to assume that it's solely due to a natural aging process, especially since I tend to see more moles on aged people, not less.

Did raw paleo do this or cooked paleo as well?

Eating RZC I could be out in the sun a lot and my skin got darker in response to it, I also didn't get any moles forming. However as soon as I started having fruit I became very sensitive to the sun-light, and also started getting some moles despite then avoiding the sun. I also became more sensitive to everything though, so it's probably just because I have some problem with carbs.

You get moles where you have weak-spots in your skin, where it is extra-sensitive, so it gets flooded with melanin or something to protect it. If you have such weak-spots you're going to be more vulnerable to skin-cancer as well.

In a lot of cases, moles are genetic. If you are predisposed to have them, they usually multiply and become bigger as you age, somewhere by mid-30s. I have quite a lot of those, and about a year ago went to a dermatologist to consult about removing them. I was told that they are perfectly benign (although of course ugly, especially when on the face) and that they will first grow and become itchy, and then dry out and fall off without forming a scar. The whole process might take years, though.

When I was on a (semi) raw lacto-paleo for 2 years (in the past), it coincided with an intense growth of those moles and appearance of new ones (which of course I did not like). However, I think that it was not diet-induced, but the moles probably were getting through their natural genetic cycle - it was just the right time for them to appear.

Now I am waiting for them to "fall off".  l)

I don't see it as a mutually exclusive question of diet or genetics, but rather diet and genetics and perhaps sun exposure, as was mentioned above, and maybe some other unknown factors.

Try decades in my case. And the falling off process didn't occur at all until I went Paleo, after which multiple moles and lesions started shrinking, and others have reported the same to me. My brother eats relatively healthfully as compared to most Americans, but does not eat Paleo or raw and despite the fact that he is older than me, none of his prominent moles have disappeared. All this could be amazing coincidences, but it could also be something more.

Not everyone experiences this benefit though, so I caution folks against getting their hopes up.

Like FoxWoman said, moles tend to be benign and only rarely develop into something cancerous like malignant melanoma. If you have a lot of them or any fast-growing or unusual-looking ones, it's probably a good idea to have your physician check them every now and then, which they should be doing anyway, but often don't make the time for it unless you mention it.

Moles are not related to any food item. They wont come on our skin due to food items. they are the creation by god. thats it.

    Coatue, I think they do start to separate and eventually fall out by using raw animal diet.

Likewise for me. Not sure if they are genetic but they are common in my family. Mine and my GF's are slowly fading rather than growing. They turn into melanoma eventually.

It follows the Ayurvedic explanations that toxins or undigested foods make their way into the bloodstream and then travel along till they hit a spot that is weak etc and they stop there and just collect over time.

Also bumps on my skin (moles etc)have disappeared or significantly subsided.
Cheers
