At the beginning of the summer I did an apple fast where, for three days you do nothing but eat apples and drink water, and at the end of each day you do an enema, this seemed to work a little bit the first time, but two months later I am right back where I started. I have an appointment with my derm next thursday and I believe he is going to reccomend accutane, I wanted to avoid the drug at all costs, but I think it's just gotta be done. So before the appointment I am going to give the apple fast one last try at getting control of the toxins in my body, and with God's will it will help me out for another month while I am on accutane. So going into Accutane, what should I know? I weigh 165 lbs. and am 5'11" , anyone of comparable size, how much dosage did you take and how fast did you see results? Also I can't help but to think of the long term effects of the drug, I would like to keep my hair and rather enjoy being able to drive at night without impared vision, but I guess I can give these up for clear skin... Not to mention is my acne just going to come back after a month off of accutane? I really want to feel like my old self again, and get on with my life...

Good luck with it.

Have you ever been on accutane? Cause I have....and although I'm very grateful it worked really well on my cystic acne....it did thin my hair considerably.....and it's never fully recovered.....and I do think my eyesight has worsened since taking it.....and it's been almost three years since I've been on it....and now I'm beginning to break out on my jawline again.....so some of his concerns are valid.

And on a side note, have any of you tried apple fasts, or another type of colon cleansing and got good results with it?

The results were unspectacular, its definetly worth a try as it won't do you any harm but I recomend simply following a healthy diet.
Trying to avoid: Dairy/Sugar/Carbs/Processed Foods/Alcohol/Caffeine
Suplements: zinc/multi-vitamin/fish oil/ACV tablets/vitamin C/B5
Topicals:coconut oil/Jojoba oil/ACV AM and PM, washing with olive oil soap, BP AM and PM
Current status: couple of small angry white heads which is annoying but they clear up pretty quickly, mainly red marks and scars though
