This thread is intended to be a warning for those using supplements in an attempt to control their acne

I just want to say - make sure you know what is going into your body

I suffered from acne for a while...to see my history view this post
http://acne.org/mess...ght change life

If you read the info i posted in the link above, you already know that i started to fight my own battle against acne with a supplement called threelac.

I had great success with it and got a little too curious.

I started to use other supplements which started to make my acne worse.
So I took some other supplements and my acne got even worse...it is a vicious cycle.

I didn't know what I was putting into my body...I didn't care...I thought that I was one supplement away from clear skin (little did I know ](*,) )

When I say supplements, I don't mean vitamin A, E and C... I am talking things like Hydrochloric acid, pancreatin, Liquid yeast, probiotics, etc.

I have spent an estimated $500-$600 on supplements in the past few months.

I have made my condition the worst it has ever been. So bad I went to the doctor and told him my story.

The doctor couldn't help me, instead he did what I was affraid of, he prescribed more antibiotics for me (I really hate doctors)

My parents have told me to stop taking all these supplements.

What they don't understand is, I have become obsessed.
I would rather kill myself by taking more and more supplements then live this way.

I guess "I am a supplement addict"[/b]
I don't give a...

why did you start taking more supplements if your acne was getting better? hydrochloric acid is a very strong acid and can cause burns! your stomach produces it but it is protected by the mucus lining.

i have just started ThreeLac after reading your past post. are you still using this now and would you recommend that i stop using it?? i am very worried now that this could be detrimental! sad.gif
