chlorophyll supplement acne anti-inflammatory leaky gut leaky gut cure
I am a 35 year old female that has been struggling with adult acne for the last 2.5 years.  I had acne as a teenager, but this experience has been much more tramatic.  I have been to 6 doctors in the last couple of years trying to figure out what is the issue.  I tried changing my diet, taking vitamins, avoiding intolerant foods from an ALCAT (which are extensive by the way), and antibiotics that doint make a difference.  What seems to be the culprit is my stomach.  My doctors haven't confirmed through tests, but based on the blood work showing major inflammation and my symptoms, they believe I have leaky gut.  What I thought was interesting is my doctor was able to tell me what he thought I had, but other than putting me on an antibiotic to kill the stomach bacteria, he wasn't very helpful otherwise.  I was at my Chiropractor yesterday and shared with her the news and she recommended Chlorophyll.  She said it has wonderful detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties.   She advised me that after I finish taking the antibiotic she will also recommend a "leaky gut" vitamin and probiotics.  Based on her experience treating leaky gut, she thinks it she be cleared up in 3 months.  I hope this works, we will see.  I will post back within a week hopefully and give an update.

Progress is good. My husband, who never comments on my face, said "keep doing whatever you are doing". My stomach feels better, my indigestion has all but gone away and yesterday I went on a carb spree, so I think I am happy with the results so far. I will post back in a few more days, it may be too soon. By the way, I forgot to mention that my acne is severe, I have an acne beard over my face and chin (or had, it's clearing up nicely). I spoke to the Chiropractor again yesterday about it, and she said that Chlorophyll is also what she recommends to her teenage patients with acne. She said it helps to balance out the body, especially for those that have acne because of their poor diets.
Dear tg2girls,

Hopefully you do not mind me sending a message. I read your poste about chlorophyll with great interest. Elsewhere on this site (on the 'holistic pages') a man in his forties has posted several messages about clearing up his acne with drinking green vegetables everyday. He prepares the vegetables in a a blender once a day and drinks it. One of the ingredients of green vegetables is chrolophyll. That is why I am very curious to see how your progress will go! I am a bit hesitant to drink green vegetables for longer periods of time (and unfortunately rather lazy...) so I am contemplating buying chlorophyll in capsules. I hope your skin will clear up!
I welcome the message, I am new to posting here. I have spent a lot of time reading and appreciate the information. In fact acne.org was the first place I read about how the stomach affects acne. I am lazy too on the vegetables I admit, the capsules seem to work great though. The ones I am taking are called Chloroplex made by Nutri-West. If I remember correctly, I think I only paid $18 for them. Of all the things I have tried, this is absolutely one of the cheapest.
So the instructions on the bottle say to take the capsules once per day. The instructions I was given was to take it one capsule morning and night on an empty stomach with warm water. Which I have been doing for the last coule of days. Yesterday, I tried just taking it once to see if that was enough. Nope, I woke up this morning with indigestion again. I ate quite a bit of sugar yesterday and ate spagetti last night. A couple of new small pimples popped up, but nothing like I would have gotten without the Chlorophyll. So for me, I will continue taking 2 per day. For teenagers and those with milder symptoms, I would try it just once per day. FYI, I go in Tuesday for an upper GI the doctor will them be able to give me more information on the damage to my stomach lining.
So after my carb benge (and the not so helpful GI doctor appointment), I realized my long term goal is healing my body not tearing it up more. So I am back to at least avoiding the items I am severly intolerant to: wheat, high fructose corn syrup, alcohol, soda, strawberries, oats, and other items. I have a huge list of medium and low intolerant items, but it is just depressing to cut everything out. Just a note on my face, I am getting a couple new small ones each day (probably because I still am eating quite a bit of sugar and rice products), but overall my face is moving in the right direction. In fact, my face is clearing up nicely, my neck is the real issue for me. So this past Friday, in addition to the Chlorophyll, I have added Omega 7 and another supplement that targets the Upper GI (L-Glutamine, Aloe Vera, Glucosamine, Slippery Elm, and some other stuff). I will report back in a couple of weeks.
So it has been just about a month and a half. My face and the texture continue to improve. I have a couple small acne on my neck and a couple small ones on my face, but I am getting a lot of compliments on my face from those that have seen me struggling. About a week ago, I switched from two Chlorophyll tablets per day to just one. I was told it was better to switch things up a bit so my body doesn't get comfortable. It appears to be great advice because progress continues to improve. I added a fiber tablet (a really high quality one) that I take at the end of the day. The "Leaky Gut" vitamin has been on back order, so finally I am supposed to start that one tomorrow.
Started Leaky Gut vitamin from Nutri west today. It has been just about a month in a half since I started this post. Very happy with results!
About 3 weeks ago I had my doctor rerun my ALCAT and funny thing happened, everything had changed. Wheat and brewers yeast were no longer a severe, in fact wheat was a mild and brewers yeast was not on there at all. Now you might think that if I avoided it that would be why. But honestly I didn't avoid either, just minimized consumption. Salad and many herbs were now an issue some mild and some severe. So I have decided to try and do a better job rotating my diet, rather than avoidance. So far so good. As far as supplements, all I have been taking for the last 2 weeks or so are L-Glutamine and the Chlloroplex. My face is not perfect, but I would say 95%+ clear. I can live with this. Very happy now! I guess my Chiropractor was right when she told me it would take 3 months to see a big improvement. I am probably done with this blog now, unless something big changes.
