I think its time to bump this again.
Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

Yeah, well. People ignore the pinned threads anyway. And if it's pinned, it can't get bumped to the top of the threads people do see.

alternativista,

Excuse my ignorance if you've already answered this, but have you read The Dietary Cure for Acne? Would you recommend buying it? My local library doesnt carry it and it seems interesting. I'm interested in hyperkeratinization/hyperproliferation and digestion issues.

Thanks.

Good topic. I'll bookmark it and try to keep it bumped up so people will stop posting the same topics over and over. This way, they'll have an adequate resource for multiple questions.

The Cordain Book? I link to a PDF in the ZAG enzyme thread under hyperkeratinization. I don't know if it's the whole book, though. Check it out. It's pretty much the paleo diet.

That's too bad. It worked not that long ago. I guess they figured out their mistake. But if you google The dietary cure for Acne pdf, you'll find places you can download it.

But notice how interrelated everything is. The same diet and nutrients appear over and over throughout the lists. And the Good Things for any given issue tend to involve improving other issues. That's why there are links from one list to another. This really should be a wiki.

Thread on making your own Nicomide, a prescription vitamin formula for acne and rosacea.

Nicomide is also available as a topical treatment.

Time to bump this again. It's been nearly a month.

Oh, 25,514 reads to date. It's always interesting to see how much it creeps up between posts when it's no where near the first page of the forum.

Not my area, but you need to do it. Maybe try not sleeping alone, i.e. a friend or a pet? Set the sleep timer on the TV to 30 minutes and turn it on a sitcom. Most TVs have a timer even though few people seem to realize it. I do this to keep me from thinking about something that might aggravate me, and I'm usually asleep after the first commercial.

See this is why I think small children should always share a bedroom. When I was small, all 4 of us shared a room until I was 5, then we moved and got a room for the 2 girls and 2 boys. Neither my little brother or I were ever afraid of the dark. I can't speak for the oldest 2.

why dont they sticky this already!
I dont agree with what I posted in the nutrition section anymore. I just think its not worth it. People worrying about food and acne all day in order to improve their life somehow while they are actually just digging a bigger hole for themselfs. The only reason to eat right should be to feel a bit better. Because the chances you will be able to reduce your acne in such an amount that its worth the effort instead of just trying a new topical is astronomicly low.

Basically get a low effort topical like differin or something more harsh if that doesnt work and just start living the life you want to live!

Alternativista, what a great resource! Thanks for sharing.
