Finally Cured My Cystic Acne! Share My Regimen

4 posts in this topic

I have competently cured my acne, so happy with it. I have suffered from mild hormone cystic acne for 2 years. I have done blood check my doctor told me I have high testosterone and prescribed diane-35 for me. It help but makes me gaining weight and feel depressed. After 6 months I stop it, and acne come back. I don't want go back on birth control pills and search for natural remedies.

Here is my regimen:

Saw Palmetto is a real miracle! It suppress the testosterone much better than diane-35. Now I have oil free clear skin, I have never experienced! Except SP, I also take Vitex, herbal detox blend, it helps the total body detox and make skin looks clearer and glowing. But I think SP does the most jobs.

Good for you! How long have you been off bcp though? My skin was always the clearest a few months after coming off bcp, and then the massive breakouts would happen. Did you get any guidance from a naturopath for this combination of herbs and supplements?


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...

 

Grocery list:

 

** Find the cause, find the cure **

So glad you found something that worked for you! I was taking saw palmetto and then stopped because I am scared of weight gain. How long did it take you to see results - i.e be completley clear?
