Recently i have been battling severe acne. Always had gross acne it but about 3 weeks ago out of no where my face freaked so i started looking EVERYWHERE on line for an answer because i had had ENOUGH. I read about candida and it all made sense. I started this a week ago. I also started using DERMIFY and it is INCREDIBLE. you can order on amazon.com.
2 probiotics PB8 (good bacteria)
1 coconut oil pill (kills the bad bacteria)
regimen PM dinner time
2 probiotics PB8 (gives you back the good bacteria)
i coconut oil pill
i oregano pill (kills the bad bacteria)
3 chewable papaya tabs (to easily digest food)
1 bromelain pill (for digestion)
1 beta carotein pill (for skin)
late PM bed time
2 probiotics PB8
I also still wash with pro active and my cetaphil cleansing bar like i always have. Within 1 week (yesterday) my face has cleared up 80% and am left with ugly red marks. I wish i had taken pic's but it was hard enough just leaving the house and going to work. I cant believe it was a fungal infection. I had white heads, cysts, pustules, papules.... you name it i had it. I have also, for the past 2 weeks before i started this regimen, have been putting sea water in a big pot and submerging my face in it (we only live about an hour from the shore so we filled a huge air tight container with sea water) the salt has helped alot with healing but wasn't controlling any new acne. I drink pau d'arco tea which also kills the bad bacteria and have been staying away from carbs and sugar as much as i can and drinking alot of water. I have tried everything short of accutane and i came to the conclusion i have to fix what is wrong inside of me. I read for some people it can take a few months to see results. My husband said to me today your skin hasn't looked this good in years . Candida can come from taking to many antibiotics, prednisone etc....I believe it was the anitbiotics that did this to me, you know the stuff that the doctor gives you go figure. Well i had to share and hope you try it, I feel like a new person. Oh and look up candida diet you will learn alot from it. I DID!!!!
UPDATE i stopped using proactive and replalced it with DERMIFY and this stuff is AMAZING.
