How My Custom Seed Mix Cleared My Skin

5 posts in this topic

I've been struggling with acne for a very long time. Look to my profile and you will see I've been a member of the site since 2004! A lot of remedies, both natural and prescription, have helped reduce my acne, but nothing was clearing it for a stable period of time. Accutane was very effective, but after half a year, my skin was starting to get inflammed again. I had to find another solution.

I stumbled upon the anti-inflammation diets plus Dr. Oz's green smoothies and found them fantastic. My energy levels, focus, blood sugar, cholesterol, were all great, except I was still breaking out.

I kept experimenting with different smoothie combinations and I finally figured it out -- a mix of three seeds taken every day:

1) Organic Whole Flax Seed

2) Organic Hempseed

3) Organic Chia Seed

Equal portions of each blended and and a total of 1/4 cup everyday.

I've been doing this for the last year now and have completely minimized my break outs. I've been able to bring back my "junk" and inflammatory foods without any noticible impact on my skin. Facial washes, moisturizers, etc. are irrelevant and also have no impact.

Something about those three seeds together was the answer. I've been taking flax seed and fish oil supplements for a long time, but they never helped with my breakouts. It was not until I added hemp and chia did my skin suddenly start improving.

Give this a shot for at least 2 months, being very strict with taking at least 1/4 cup every day. Let me know how it goes!

if u do this twice a day in order to get a TOTAL of 1/4 cup every day, that means 1/8 of a cup of the seed mixture (in equal ratio) twice a day right? so... 1/24 of a cup of each seed lol! which is...

1/24 of 1 US cup = 9.8578 ml

and

9.8578 ml = 2 US tsp

so... 2 tsp each of flax, hemp, chia seeds TWICE a day...

How long you've been getting results with this regimen? I'm asking cos acne comes and goes. So hope this is not just a temporary improvement.

Both flax and hemp seeds are quite high in omega 3 fatty acids. Might be that what's helping you.

80%-20% Alkaline forming vs Acid forming Diet

`Organic~
I don't consume:
*Dairy
*Whole grains
*Refined sugars
*Table salt
*Vegetable oils
*Processed/Fast foods
*Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs)
As well as the pesticides/herbicides that come with them

My philosophy: Less externally, more internally

Even taking long hot showers in chemically treated tap water is too harsh for acne prone skin

(And that's without a face wash)

This site is absolutely loaded with info on curing acne internally

you just lacked omega 3s, those are in all those seeds in pretty high proportions.
