Now recently I added another supplement called Khadirarishta, which is an Indian medicine in liquid form that you mix with water and is used to for skin conditions including acne. I have to say in the two weeks of using is my skin seems to be improving that little bit more, i'm still get pimples but they now quite coming to head, instead they are sitting back down again.
Now i'm wondering has anyone else used this? Ideally someone who has used it a longer period than I have. I would like to know whether this is a first sign that maybe truly on the right path, or could it be the case of getting better than not having any effect at all.
Also not to sound too cynical, but I wouldn't call anything i've tried a 'cure' as such, as a cure in my personal opinion means you can stop taking a med after a certain amount time and acne not coming back, if I have to carry on to keep acne at bay then it's more just a treatment.

Since you had success with the psyllium then you should consider other digestive cleaners and make sure you're consuming adequate amounts of fiber. Bentonite clay is great for absorbing toxins in the digestive tract. I would also look into "Leaky Gut Syndrome" because this can be a cause of acne for some.
Have you taken any liver damaging medicines like accutane or long term antibiotics? Because your body will try to detox after coming off of these treatments which can lead to more acne until you've detoxed properly. I'm only bringing this up because the psyllium could have helped push out these toxins which is why you saw results.
Feel free to message me if you have any questions, I know I just threw a lot of info at you! Be well!

I've tried so many acne products and nothing ever seems to work. My one tried and true trick after a heavy breakout is to drink 3-4 glasses of carrot juice for a few days and that tends to help. But it really got me thinking. So much of acne prevention is attempting to fix the problem after it's already happened ie treating acne topically with creams and masks etc.
IMHO, if there is a solution to this complex problem, it's attempting to treat the problem internally. After doing some research, I came across this doctor's You Tube video and it started to make sense. Hmmmm, never thought the reason why my body is eliminating waste thru my face is because my lymphatic system may be clogged and overworked. Hey it makes perfect sense!!!!! Anyway, here is a video done by Dr. John Douillard that discusses what you can do to start cleaning your lymphatic system. While he does not mention acne specifically one can only connect that dots and ascertain that an unhealthy lymph system is probably a contributing factor towards acne.
Here's the link:
As a result of watching this video, I did start using an Indian herb called Manjistha. According to Dr. Douillard this herb helps to help remove toxins out of your bloodstream. Well I'm very excited to report that I'm half way thru my first bottle of manjistha and my skin is starting to improve! I've only been taking the manjistha for 10 days (two pills in the morning and two at night) and my breakouts have reduced significantly.
I think there are a few different manjistha products out there but I ordered them off Dr. Douillard's sight. Here is the link http://compare.ebay....mTypes&var=sbar. Did notice that Dr. Douillard's manjistha is a tad more expensive than the competition so next time I may use this link to buy http://www.onlineher...evance&dir=desc but then again, manjistha isn't very expensive so I may stick with what is working for me. BTW, I am not associated with Dr. Douillard....just wanted to give props to him and his videos because so far it's working I've also ordered a herb called Neem and that will arrive next week. It's also an herb that eliminates waste from your blood. I'll post later and let you guys know how the combo is working.
Those others with adult acne may want to give this product a go!!!!
