I also want to add that there was a time when I was living in central america and my sleep schedule was very regular. I went to bed at the same time every night and was outside all day with my eyes exposed to sunlight. I lived in a village without electricity where everyone went to bed once the sun went down. We were rarely inside, as the rooms were incredibly small. Under databased's theory, I wouldn't have had acne during this time but I did have a lot. I don't doubt that this didn't work for him but for me it did not. Acne is multifactorial. During this time in central america, i most likely masturbated freely which affects acne. Also alot of the families used soybean oil to cook with, which always makes my acne worse. I'm not sure if databased's cure is the best. For my lifestyle, it would be impractical and tedious. But I respect your determination. Just my two cents.

Just curious, but when you talked about how you initially did a superdose of 200mg of zinc how long did you do that for?

Here's one possible reason why databased had better digestion and less acne when he started to go outdoors:
Daylight contains significant amounts of red light and near-infrared radiation (NIR), which increase tissue metabolism and decrease inflammation, mainly by activating cytochrome c oxidase in the mitochondria, directly. They have actually quite huge effects on many diseases:
In theory, a similar effect could be achieved with incandescent bulbs or heat lamps, but not energy-saving bulbs.
In one study, at least red light had a good effect on acne: http://www.ncbi.nlm....les/PMC3352636/
In that study, they also tried near-infrared of 890nm for acne, but it didn't work. One reason could be that the wavelength they used (890nm) might be bad at activating cytochrome c oxidase (Cox). Certain wavelengths are better, and some are worse: http://www.isan.troi...s/publ3/344.pdf (Figure 1).
Databased wrote about ZSOD, and it appears that red light and infrared, by activating Cox, also increases ZOD concentrations: http://www.ncbi.nlm....les/PMC2637249/ "superoxide dismutase activities were also increased in NIL-treated subjects in a dose-dependent manner, suggesting an in vivo transcranial effect of NIL."
