The Only Real Cure For Acne!!!!!

46 posts in this topic

I tried Dan's regimen for about a year and i had no success. I looked horrible with cysts all over my face, had low self-esteem and hated life. I tried botchlas regimen and had the same results.

Then i came accross a totally diff. approach which was shown to me through a series of coincidences that i think were meant to happen. "divine intervention" if you will.

I read this book called the ph miracle by dr. Robert Young. It basically teaches the principles of his diet which focus on detoxifying the body by eating natural, unprocessed, raw foods which have an alkalizing affect on the body. The problem with today's doctors is that they treat acne like an infection that needs to be treated by antibiotics. But the truth is that the acne on your face represents the toxicity inside of your body that is trying to escape through your poors. This also represents an umbalanced, acidic body that is prone to other diseases and illnesses such as cancer.

After i started this diet i immediately noticed a difference. The initial stages consisted of bad stomach aches from the lack of the shity food which i was eating before. The reason for this was that the bacteria, such as yeast, inside of my body was overgrown from the overeating of these foods that they survive on. When you have a craving for sugar, it is not you having that craving because your body does not actually need sugar at all, it is the yeast that needs sugar to survive and when it doesnt get it it gives off a chemical which tells you brain to feed it.

After the first couple of days my energy went crazy. I woke up in the morning feeling energized and positive. Another thing was my state of mind. I was so clear and positive because my body was becoming balanced again. My acne immediately started to clear up. By the 3rd month my acne was 100% gone!!!! no bulshit here guys. This changed my life forever. I will never eat any other way again and i am convinced that anybody who has enough self control to start eating this way will not want to go back, not just because of the clear skin, but because of the way that you feel.

I am a salesman.

But i do not sell this book, i sell loans. I have gotten people at my work to start this diet and they all feel the same way i do. My brother and dad also follow this same diet. We all are hooked.

The only reason i have not visited this message board before is because i got rid of my acne and i was out enjoying life. I just feel like if i dont share this with all of you then i am selfish. Please give it shot.

no offense to Dan's regimen, I even suggest continuing The reg until you think you can get off of it, that is what i did.

actually your body does need some sugar, glucose (sugar-base) is a source of energy for your cells.

the currency of energy in your body is purely sugar. Everything that you eat is turned into sugar. The problem lies in the refined sugar that is not natural and feeds the organizms as soon as it enters the stomach. It is absorbed into the bloodstream too fast and creates a spike in your blood sugar.

Just a note here on sugar - I read this article about 5 months ago that was talking about the effect of refined sugar on your body. It mentioned that the effort your body has to go through to digest and remove sugar is harder on your body than most poisons. It was really interesting.

But you know what bugs me? I've got a co-worker that drinks a liter of diet coke and a box of either twinkies, ho-hos, cupcakes - you name it - everyday. She's one big woman, let me tell you - but her skin is flawless.

eburt you are exactly right.. trash food does a number on the skin and the body, the body gets enough sugars in unrefined carbs, it doesnt need the crap in trash food. i have seen this work beautifully for me.. its tough though, the world is a carb loving place

So androgens have nothing to do with acne, it's the poisons inside you? And children and old people don't have these toxins trying to come through the skin? ph34r.gif

You make a very good point. There are MANY valid theories as to why the various "acne diets" work, but one thing that is universal about them is that they do follow along with the pH diet. These diets tend to be more Alkalinizing on our systems than acidic.

I believe that there's a 30% Acidic & 70% Alkaline food rule here and therefore this could help explain why not everyone on this board is eliminating the SAME foods. Of course, we also have to take into consideration the quality of the food and the region or country it was produced as this would help determine how healthy it is to consume due to varying production standards.


These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):

* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)

* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002

* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)

* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):

* Strengthen/Repair GI - Immune health

Research:

* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).

* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

I am still declaring that ACV is a godlike product that anyone should include in their diet, since it has so so so and so many benefits and I even think that it did help me out for 90%

What is ACV?

And also in regards to the fat lady that you work with, the toxicity has shown up in her body in the form of fat. The fat is actually saving her life by taking the acidic toxins away from her vital organs and storing them in the fat cells. It shows up differently in everybody though because we all have diff. body types.

In regards to the androgen guy, I think that there is validity to what point you are trying to prove but my personal experience tells me something totally diff. Maybe by eating this way it decreases your androgen level or something, whatever it is it works. And adults to have acne by the way and children dont have it basically because of hormonal issues. I think that in a perfectly balanced body that the hormones do not make you break out like they would in an unbalanced body. It makes sense right?

Dont let doctors tell you that diet makes no difference. They have not been able to link food to acne because it is not one type of food that makes you break out. It is the combination of all the foods that americans eat that are so void of nutrition and create an acidic environment in your body. I believed my dermotologist when she told me that food has no link, but then nothing that she gave me worked. Only diet.

one thing though, eburt has a good point, the yeast over growth can cause soooo many problems, and once u eliminate it, most people really do well. but anyone that knows about yeast knows that apple cider vinegar is a huge no no while ridding urself of yeast. vinegar is a yeast.

All I can say is this is a load of fucken crap!!!!!!!!!

Acne has nothing to do with your diet, ABSOLUTELY FUCKEN NOTHING!!

Acne is cause by your hormones. I also use to think acne had to do with my eating habits and so I stopped eating junk foods, sweet things and so on. It did not help. My face stayed exactly the same for 2 months. There was no change at all.

I'm not trying to piss on anyones battery,but acne is not connected to your diet.

It is connected to hormonal fluctioations.

i am on a special diet (low sugar/gluten/ carb type foods (breads /pastas) ) and i also do my water regimen. when i do my water regimen along with my special diet, it keeps me almost completely clear, if i eat junk food, my acne does worsen (never as bad as before, the way i drink water helps massively) but i notice an almost immediate change in my acne.

Maybe it doesn't work for you but everyones cirsumstances are individualistic so diet does affect Acne, i stopped eating chocolate, excess sugar etc and it makes a massive difference.

So, guess your just stuck until your 20 man when your hormones take a backseat.

Well if you have acne, your body isn't "perfectly balanced". There is something wrong with your skin. I believe that the skin in my face (don't have acne anywhere else) is too sensitive to androgens. That probably means that I'll have this condition in some form until my androgen hormone levels start to decline. Diet doesn't chance that. Diet can affect hormonal balance, but I believe that ,in my case at least, that doesn't have any effect to my skin. I've eaten fast food, chocolate and all sorts of crap, then started to eat cleaner. Didn't do anything to my skin. Now I'm eating very little carbs and no dairy and a lot of vegetables (trying to get leaner) and haven't noticed any improvement from that either.  If changing dietary habits clears your skin, that's great, but it doesn't work for everybody.

These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.
