ok everyone, i have stumbled upon something amazing recently, so bear with me, its kind of a long story. i think some of you have read my posts, im a 20 year old female whos been suffering with bad acne for almost 10 years. i have been on anti biotics for almost 10 years as well, which turned into a nightmare.. eventually i became immune to most anti biotics, as ive been on most all of them for acne, an each time i would attempt to go off the anti biotics the acne (that i should have genetically grown out of, as my brother an dad did) got majorly worse. what once was just huge white heads became horribly painful cystic welts under my skin, on top of the huge whiteheads that always scar on me. so basically, i have been on anti biotics for ages, and even on the anti biotics, my acne was so chronic it would never clear me totally. i have tried spiro, which worked beautifully, as my acne is very hormonal.. (my break outs are most severe on the mid/lower cheek areas) but due to hairloss issues, i had to stop spiro, and i cant take b5 or spiro or anything that blocks androgens, which is horrible.. because they worked so well. I have tried MANY things for my acne over the years, including most anti biotics(mino tetra erythra keflex bactrim). i have used ALL of the topicals, retinoids, etc, with best results coming from tazorac. Ok fast foward to now, about 2 weeks ago i read on this forum about 'red' who had used an awesome homeopathic pill for his acne/ oilyness. homeopathy is safe, so for some unknown reason, i decided to take a leap of faith and GO OFF my anti biotics for a week to try this stuff out, in hope to finally find a safe alternative to antis. Well needless to say, 4 days into the treatment, it didnt work for me (but i beleive in homeopathy).. an my face was horribly oily and the cysts were beginning to come up. So i stopped the homeopathy, and decided i would try my best to find a natural treatment for my acne. so i began taking lots of essential fatty acids.. in the form of evening prim rose oil an flaxseed oil... these are good for acne.. but cant handle scarring cysts/ whiteheads like i have.. so i also drastically changed my diet as well... and then *THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART* lol i remembered something i read late one night while doing research on my hair. I was reading a hair loss forum, specifically a thread about 'folliculitis' now i dont even have folliculitis, so i dont even know why the heck i was reading it. the thread was about natural ways to treat folliculitus, and what had helped people. (folliculitis is alot like acne, its inflamed pimples on the hair follicles, usually from hormones). So i read about this woman, who claimed she cleared hers 100%! (yea right i thought) she claimed that an old jewish woman told her TO NOT DRINK ANYTHING RIGHT BEFORE YOU EAT, AND NOT DRINK ANYTHING FOR A WHILE AFTER YOU EAT. she stated at the end of her post that it would help kids with acne.. so i laughed, thinking to myself how cruel she must be.. to lead people on with acne, because this was obviously WAY too easy. But at that point, i was getting 5-6 new cysts everyday, nothing was holding it back, so i thoguht 'what the hell? ill try it for a few days' i had found this information about 2 months ago.. an tried what she recommended in the post, she said to not drink anything 10 min before you eat, not drink anything during the meal, and not drink anything for an hour after you eat. i tried this for a day or 2, didnt notice a change.. so i never tried it again. Now, last thursday, i decided that i was going to try this, STRICTLY. When i woke up that morning, i ate something healthy, and did not drink anything for 2 HOURS after i ate, and i would make sure i had not drunk anything for 2 HOURS BEFORE i ate. Basically i put myself on a schedule. (ie: wake up at 8am and eat, drink loads of fresh water at 10 am, eat again at 12, drink loads of water at 2, eat again at 4, drink loads of water at 6, eat again at 8, loads of water at 10 ) the lady i read about said that you would notice results in 2 days.. SHE WAS RIGHT. by the end of the second day, i looked at my skin, an noticed i DID NOT GET ANY NEW PIMPLES ALL DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! since then.. it has ONLY GOTTEN BETTER.. I HAVE GOTTEN NO NEW PIMPLES SINCE SATURDAY NIGHT.. the pimples i have are drying up, and NOTHING IS COMING BACK.. i follow the diet/ drinking schdule RELIGIOUSLY! an i am getting NO MORE ACNE. in about 3 or so days my face will be about 100% clear of acne.. this has been a MIRACLE !!!!!! PLEASE anyone with acne, TRY THIS,, i have NEVER seen anything like it.. i have GONE OFF ALL supplements, vitamins an medications !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL i do is follow my diet an drinking scedule, an honestly i dont think the diet has ANYTHING to do with it. its all about NOT DRINKING ANYTIME NEAR THE TIME YOU EAT.. my acne was almost SEVERE, and it leaves SCARS. and now it is almost completely GONE in 5 DAYS!!!!!!!! sorry for all the punctuation.. lol.. but this is a HUGE thing for me.. i use NO topicals. (except BP to continue healing the last few pimples i have left) please everyone.. give this a try, its UNBELIVABLE..i am going to email the woman that wrote the message soon.. and THANK HER for writing about this, how i stumbled across it i will never know, maybe god was looking over me that night
so please give this a shot folks, especially you girls who have hormonal acne!! i really hope this helps you guys, as it has me. if you have ANY questions.. please PM me anytime!!
Heres what i Do
-Wake up an eat at 8 (grilled chicken an a veggie) drink NOTHING
-drink NOTHING until 10 am, drink as much as you can, preferabbly water!! (i usually drink 4 large glasses, and do NOT eat ANYTHING until 12!!!)
- i eat again at 12 (salmon with a salad) drink NOTHING (drink nothing again until 2!)
-at 2 i drink another 4 glasses of water (i got one of those PUR water filters on my kitchen faucets, its AWESOME) eat nothing until 4!
-at 4 eat something.. smoked turkey an a veggie or salad (again drink NOTHING until 6)
-at 6 drink another 4 glasses of water (again no eating anything til 8)
- at 8 you can eat again (when i say eat, it doesnt have to be a full meal, it can be a simple snack, JUST DONT DRINK NEAR THE TIME YOU EAT)
-at 10 drink another 4 glasses of water.. so basically thats what i do.. eat first thing.. drink 2 hours later, eat again, drink 2 hours later.
THIS HAS WORKED AMAZING FOR ME!!! but you have to be STRICT. i am a firm beleiver in a healthy diet, but honestly i dont think this has anything to do with diet, so continue eating what you want, just schedule when you are going to eat or drink, if you have to write it down, i do
now if you can.. try to drink water..it helps alot..
what im taking
what i use on my face
- wash with panoxyl bp soap once a day an dab BP on the few pimples i have left
thats all i do.. if you guys are very strict about this.. i think you should notice that you arent breaking out anymore by maximum 4-5 days. this treatment doesnt seem to make them go away faster, BUT IT KEEPS NEW ONES FROM COMING.. i have about 6 tiny pimples left, that are going away fast, i have had one new pimple since saturday. please try this everyone.!!!
So how long did this take to start working? I've tried not drinking anything for 10 minutes before or after. So is it not drink anything 10 minutes before and 2 HOURS after? It's a lot harder than I thought. SO I have to go on a diet too? Can u explain a little more on the diet please? Thank u so much!!
