About the Author
I am updating my first book on rosacea to reflect the current understanding of this confusing disease. Since 1999, when I began writing about rosacea, there has continued to be a need to help rosaceans with some basic facts. In 2004 I founded the Rosacea Research & Development Institute and currently serve as the volunteer director. I currently live in Hawaii with my wife, working part-time, and volunteering many hours of my life as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. This book is a result of many long hours devoted to an understanding of what makes rosacea tick. The clock on rosacea is still ticking.

When I first reviewed this I gave it five stars. I've changed it to three because of the Diet. Now that I've had a chance to look at the diet more closely and even try it, I see that while there are some good things about it (eliminating grains, sugar, reducing carbs), there is a lot of dairy in it. A lot of people have problems with dairy and it is known to cause inflammation, which rosacea primarily is inflammation. So I'm guessing a Paleo diet (primarily eating meat and vegetables) is going to be a better bet. I will try to update again if I'm successful with a Paleo version.
If anyone has roseacea it's a great place to start, and a wonderful resource for a pretty mystifying and potentially debilitating condition.
First of all sorry for my bad english.
I have to congratulate Barry Barrows for his work. Amazing work on Rosacea , i have to say is right in almost aspects ( its just my humble opinion)... It is true that high carbs can worsen rosacea Pimples , i suffer from that also , but for those who have flushing this is at least for me a very bad idea!!
For two years , REALLY two years i tried low carb or sometimes no carb diet and i developed a nose rash with intensive flushing of nose and ears! I high protein diet can increase levels of histamine on the body , excess of histamine causes in all people (more of course in histamine sensitive persons) an inflammatory reaction. BUT more important than that is when cuting carbs your are cuting the production of an very important enzyme called AMYLASE ! AMYLASE is an enzyme that healps the body to break down carbs and it have an anti-histamine , anti- inflammatory effect in the body , and above all it healp regulates mast cells.
This is just my opinion , introducing carbs again with the meals improved a lot my redness and my flushing.
Salut to all
It may not appeal to all readers due to the fact that it does cover a lot of research on rosacea. Yet again in my opinion, it is well worth the price for the abundance of information that it contains.
Particularly helpful is the section that lists and describes some rosacea products available. If there was an annually updated booklet that listed current rosacea products with description and benefit I would subscribe to it. Hopefully Barrows continues to provide product info in the future.
Bottom line: I would recommend this book.
