i suppose the main theme here would be the concept of synergism, and a general awareness of the complexity of the human body and of life. but here is an example of a what im taking about:
someone tries to use zinc for a week or so to see how it affects their acne condition, finds no results whatsoever, while another person claims to have an improvement. both, make up their minds about how zinc supplements affect acne, both people are right and both are wrong at the same time and here is why. first off, there is no doubting the authority of their individual experiances, they may be both reporting the absolute truth as to how zinc affected their body under certain conditions, but a possible difference may be that, the one who experianced benefits was replete in vitamin A, while the other that did not experience benefits was deficient in vitamin A, and vitamin a is required for full zinc utilization by the body, therefore, the concept of synergism was responsible for explaining their complete opposite experiances in regards to zinc and acne.
there are so many variables that interact like this, you may try something one day and it works, and then two weeks from now and it doesnt, and it is possibly due to this synergistic nature of elements.
the above situation is hypothetical, im not advocating that zinc will help anyones acne or not, or that lack of vitamin a will make your acne worse, but it is possible.
