Fermented Cod Liver Oil

I was wondering if anyone has experience with fermented cod liver oil and increases in tics? I began taking a product called Blue Ice Royal which is a blend of fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil for my adult acne in September. I began taking this product after reading this article http://www.westonaprice.org/cod-liver-oil/cod-liver-oil-basics and finding out the differences between most cod liver oil brands which are synthetic, and the fermented brand that I purchased.

 

After 2 weeks or so, my acne cleared for the first time since I was 13 I have used every product on the market and nothing ever got me clear. I still use Benzoyl Peroxide, Tazorac, a cleanser and a moisturizer from Cerave in large amounts (Possibly another trigger? :angry: lol ). My skin stopped producing excess oil and I literally had no more inflammation or cystic pimples. Fast forward to the last week of November. Since that time, I have developed about 4 new tics in addition to my head tic. My head tic was my only tic for the past 10 years so something is severely messed up in my body. Over the past 2 weeks, I have stopped taking the cod liver oil for a few days at a time and my acne comes right back as well as excess oil. The tics do not go away but they also did not show up right when I started taking it so it is hard to tell.

 

I am speculating here but one of the main things about this product that is supposed to be good is that it raises levels of vitamin A and D in our bodies. This does not happen immediately and takes a few weeks to a few months. Is it possible that the increase in Vitamin A or D is causing more and new tics? I want to stop taking it for a few months but it is literally the only thing keeping me clear. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I am new here. This jumped out at me because my son takes this same product (Royal Blue Ice fermented cod liver oil/butter oil combo in chocolate gel). I don't remember how long he's been taking it, but at least since late last summer. In the fall he developed what I now know is a tic: constant throat clearing and/or coughing. After a couple of months it seemed to disappear, but now he's shaking his head (as of about a week ago... extremely new tic). I would never have thought that the FCLO was a trigger, but maybe it is? This is all very new to me, so we haven't tried any elimination diets with him yet.
