After a lot of desperation and research (so many well-informed, knowledgeable people on this website!) I have discovered that it can be possible to treat acne with herbal suppliments. After many many MANY years of relying on Doctors and derms to prescribe me anything under the sun to clear my acne (none of which worked long-term, birth control pills NEVER AGAIN, topical creams, various anti-biotics, roaccutane TWICE also NEVER AGAIN, Metformin) I am now sacking off that route as I just keep heading into brick walls.
I was diagnosed with P.C.O.S in March this year and tracked my periods and noticed my acne is hormonal (cysts around my jawline and lower cheeks three weeks before a period then maybe the week before again). The more regualr I am, the less acne I get - if any.
So I am takin,
Vitex a.k.a Agnus Castus a.k.a chasteberry root to regulate those dodgy P's and hopefully in turn help my acne.
Saw Palmetto 320mg once a day to reduce the androgens in my body (as due to blood tests taken out in jan and feb it shows them as elevated).
Then - Primrose oil ...apparantly meant to be good not really sure why though.
AM I TAKING TOO MUCH STUFF?
I realise that .. if I am successful, I won't know what exactly is having the biggest effect.
But I want to try and attack this sh!t from all angles.
Is it okay to take this much stuff at once?
