#3389180 Another Vitamin D Success Story (In Progress!)

Posted by Acnegoaway54 on 18 October 2013 - 01:30 AM

nice. i found 6 months ago that vitamin D was used in a study in the 1930s and cleared 70% of patients from acne after 4 months. hopefully you were reading my study but a few other people have seen that too. I took D3 10000 iu  a day as well and tested hypertoxic after 2 months at 118. now i only take 2000. watch out! congratz on it clearing you

You were tested hypertoxic?? What was your level before supplementing?

My level is 28, and the doctor put me on 100,000 IU (yes, that's right) of prescription D2  per week for 2 months, with a 3rd refill after that if needed. Should I be worried? So far, it has helped a lot with depression and a bit with skin texture, and I have been taking it for 1.5 months. 

my level before suplementing was 10.  I think that the D2 will be fine. sorry i respond to this so late.

yes. my level was 10 before. i was on 60000 iu vitamin d2 but it only raised it to 23 after 3 months so i switched to d3 which is way more effective



 

6,000 and 10,000 iu seems quite a lot. Is that safe? I've been doing 2,000 a day for about a week or so.
Also, have you had problems with oily skin and if so, have vitamin d helped?
 
Thanks and great progress.

A demonstration of you not knowing about proper dosing of vitamins, yet you make statements of such knowledge in other threads. Please put your ego aside and accept the facts.

Ugh.

 

Leave me alone, I'm not trying to discourage anyone from doing anything. I was just trying to help.

We're all here because of acne problems and we're all trying to help each other.

 

Please, just stop.

i second this. this person is trying to help and you are just pissing all over their party

Note that he put you on D2, not D3. D2 is not absorbed near as well by the body as D3 is and therefore less potent at similar doses; but for whatever reason all prescription vitamin d is in the D2 form. That dose of D2 is fine for short periods of time (few months) if you have a diagnosed deficiency. That much D3 though for longer than a few weeks would be very bad LOL.

 

I thought prescription D2 can be more toxic though, especially since it's synthetic. So far, though, I'm tolerating it much better than D3 supplements, possibly because it's the plant-based rather than the lanolin-based form. I think both my D2 and D3 levels are low, but the doctor only gave me the cumulative level which was 28. Will taking D2 also correct my D3 deficiency? that's what I'm worried about, that it won't raise my D3 levels enough, just the D2. 

But yeah, for depression and anxiety it has done wonders! 

dont worry. just keep getting tested often and you will be fine

#3351940 Orange

Posted by Acnegoaway54 on 25 May 2013 - 05:59 PM

acne is alright today. still getting some new acne but i have been hitting the gym hard lately so it might have to do somewhat with all the hormones from that. i have gone back to my 20% diet and i am trying to limit my carbs to 140g a day or less hopefully. my back is still clear which is great and the acne on my face is small and dries up really fast but i have about 5 acne pimples on my face. what i am really happy about is the control i feel over my acne. i feel like if i can monitor it through my diet and lower it if i want or keep it at a certain level in order to enjoy certain foods.

here is my diet right now:

-2 eggs (140 cal)

-1 sausauge, 140 cal

-olive oil, 240 cal

-chicken, 350 cal

-1 cup sunflower seeds, 800 cal

-2 slice almond bread, 120 cal

-peanut butter, 180 cal

-3 turkey jerkey strips, 240 cal

1 orange, 60 cal?

-1 avocado, 300 cal

12 brazil nuts, 300 cal

bean chips, 200 cal

hummus, 160 cal

vegetables

almond milk

 

pretty similar to before

the majority of my carbs come from the orange, sunflower seeds, and bean chips




#3348866 I beg all of you to try Zinc + Chromium

Posted by Acnegoaway54 on 15 May 2013 - 08:16 PM

i take 30 mg zinc a day. it decreased my acne by 50%. i am 100% clear by eliminating carbs from my diet. anyway. when i took 45mg i was also completely clear instead of only just 50% problem it caused me depression and lack of appetite. i got my friend to try zinc 50mg and now he is 60% clear. before he had so much acne and was considering taking accutane. the bottom line is you should try zinc chelated. that is what worked for me. but if you want to get rid of all your acne, i recomend cutting carbs out of your diet. 




#3333437 Paleo Diet Update

Posted by Acnegoaway54 on 14 March 2013 - 04:15 PM

i have been on a low glycemic diet for 2 and half months. 3 weeks ago i cut out sugar. 1 week ago i cut out all grains making my diet a true paleo diet. after the first 2 months i had great improvement. about 55%. after cutting out the sugar i had 75% improvement. After cutting out the grains i am now 95% clear. the only mistake i made was adding some flax seeds to my oatmeal. Everytime i add omega 3's to my diet i break out in cysts that i never get otherwise. they last about 2 weeks. this happened with fish oil and now with flax seed. anyway, after going full paleo and cutting out the pop corn i was using as a snack, my back acne continues to be 100% clear. other than the cysts which are shrinking which were caused by flax seed, i have 2 pimples on my upper right forehead. it is very strange because i have gotten them there for about 2 weeks and 1 on my right forehead. and no where else. both cheeks are clear except for the cysts!!! w000t!  i can finally shave. none of that chin acne! it feels awesome! i am just waiting for these last few pimples on the forehead to clear up. and i have a new one but its from the flax seed. so i recomend it to everyone but u must be strict. i had lunch today with some students who offered me pizza and was about to cheat but realized it is not worth it! while this diet will not make you feel great, not having the acne is really nice!

 

 

oh and i have a question. can i eat oatmeal?? it is not instant. if i am having problems when i eat whole grain bread is it ok for me to eat oatmeal? because the oatmeal i eat could definately have been eaten by a caveman. 

 

 




#3323912 Low Glycemic Diet Has Worked

Posted by Acnegoaway54 on 02 February 2013 - 04:57 PM

ummm. then call it a paleo diet if you want. i eliminated those foods because people on the island of kitava don't eat them and none of them have acne. i think it makes sense that eating those foods have some sort of connection to acne and insulin resistance. besides i already did the research proving to myself that insulin resistance is what causes acne. what you said is true about lowering the glycemic index. i guess i will call it a paleo diet. the reason i got rid of those of foods though is because just like what you said, if you eat too many of them, it will increase the glycemic index. it is extremely easy to eat white bread or go off on cheez-its and most people do that. point is this works, and there is medical proof behind it. but it takes a long time to clear acne. probably like 3 months. so far the results have been amazing and i'm just sharing what worked for me. there is no reason to criticize my method of controlling acne. if anything you should be thanking me for sharing what has worked. i could have just said "screw all those people" and never even visited this website again like so many people do after they clear their acne. instead i want to help a few people. 




#3315487 Do Girls Care About Acne? Tips For Guys With Acne

Posted by Acnegoaway54 on 03 January 2013 - 08:34 PM

sorry but that is a very silly question. everyone is different. some girls do. some girls don't. just like how some guys make fun of fat girls and others don't. ask yourself this. do you care about how fat a girl is? or do you see her for who she truly is. is the first thing you look at a girls figure or do you try to get to know her first? most men are guilty of the first. find a girl who doesn't care about acne. that means she will love you forever. most the girls i know don't care about acne. but its a two way street. if you expect people to not care about your acne then the world needs to be less mean to fat people, ugly people, and so forth. unfortunately it is not. if you pass judgement to others based on how they look, sound, or appear then you are ignorant. almost everyone in their entire life has done those things. this means that some girls will care about your acne and a few good ones won't. You need to find the good ones.

but at the end of the day you can not really hold people acountable for the ignorance. i was an extremely ignorant person for a very long time. i don't think i was born ignorant. i see the same ignorance in my 79 year old father and he passed it down to me. some people like him are ignorant their entire lives. they never wake up and see the world for what it really is. i think this is what seperates the good from the bad. people who can wake up and see out the ignorance are the small light at the end of the tunnel for our society. ignorance is passed down generation after generation. until someone breaks the cycle. its like and eye for an eye. someone has to forgive to stop this viscious circle! an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. at the end of the day though, i feel all the blame rests on the shoulders of "god". If he created mankind then he gave them their will to be bad and be ignorant. essentially he started all the ignorance and the cycle. he is the alpha. now this makes him a terrible being. it is the only way to look at it. why else is life unfair. is religion more than a tool to control society. i think not. at the end of the night, how can my sins and ignorance be my burden to carry. for if i was created by the lord he had it preprogrammed that i would have these qualities. this makes god a very terrible person. fortunately there is an answer to all these problems that i just thought of. what if this life is nothing more than a landscape and a game. the things that happen don't truly matter. god creates us and makes us bad on purpose. he wants to see if we have the courage to perservere and be "good". of course without good their is not evil. this is a serious paradox. then agian so is the idea of god creating humanity. if god created us then how can we truly make any decision or have free will? its impossible because god had to know all the paths. he gives us the right to pick a path? how? if he gave us the original impulse then that would pick the path for us. basically we have no control over anything at all. maybe not even suicide is a choice. we have no understanding of the afterlife or proof that it exists. at the end of the night their is no proof of anything. i can't prove you exist and quite frankly this post has been rambling on and on and on. the answer is maybe. maybe girls care about you acne. if they do then they are not good for you anyway.


#3313776 Acne Prone Skin/sebum Deficient In Linoleic Acid, Possible Topical Solution

Posted by Acnegoaway54 on 27 December 2012 - 06:50 PM

i put evening primrose oil topically and it didn't really help my acne after 1 month but i know there are studies showing it to help such as the following one: http://www.ncbi.nlm..../pubmed/9692305


"A major pathogenic factor of acne is the disturbed keratinization of the follicular infundibulum. It has been hypothesized that a relative decrease in linoleic acid in the sebum could be responsible, in part, for this. The aim of the present study was objectively to evaluate the effects of topically applied linoleic acid on the size of microcomedones in patients with mild acne. The design was a double-blind placebo-controlled randomized cross-over study. Evaluations were performed by digital image analysis of cyanoacrylate follicular biopsies. There was a significant effect of topically applied linoleic acid on the size of follicular casts and microcomedones, an almost 25% reduction in their overall size being achieved over a 1-month treatment period. In contrast, no change was found at placebo-treated sites. It is concluded that topical linoleic acid might play a role as a comedolytic agent in acne-prone patients."
i would love to use linoleic acid in the future but evening primrose is so oily.

i have been taking vitamin d for 2 months and in the study were it cured acne for 50% of people and significantly helped it for 76% it took 3 months. I am unhappy to report that the only thing that seems to be working for me is drinking acv and applying zinc oxide topically but I for sure be applying some vitamin d to my skin in the future. heres my theory why people get acne in the winter. we are out in the sun during the summer and the vitamin d is directly manufactured on our skin! hence on our skin on our face!

i think that that taking it in pill form takes so long to work because it never is made in the skin!!! it takes month to make it to the skin layer! by getting that vitamin d directly on the face I beleive it will directly available to my skin cells and will simulate the idea of putting my face in the sun during the summer!.
now all that is left is for me to get some vitamin d and put it on topically i will do that right now.

btw i have noticed everyone at school who never has acne in the summer is getting some during the winter!! there has to... there has to be a connection!

wow! after reading that study you posted about the zuelo whatever it is called i looked at the wiki page for it! turns out it inhibits something that GLA inhibits as well! i will continue drinking the evening primrose oil! thanks!

Posted by Acnegoaway54 on 16 December 2012 - 10:25 AM

just take the @#$% zinc.

Whenever u get the urge try ice bathing ur junk. Athletic sports/exercises, yoga also helps. Masturbation weakens the penile nerves and can lead to PE, prostatitis, urinary incontinence etc. Give ur body a break and allow ur organs to develop. Google side effects of masturbation.

http://www.steadyhea...ion_t63621.html

lol

apparently we loose zinc when we masturbate so this could be why zinc methionine works for people who have acne that is exacerbated by masturbation.

#3279742 Masturbation / Acne Experiement 2010 // 2011 // 2012 !

Posted by Acnegoaway54 on 24 August 2012 - 12:02 AM

i know that masturbation has caused my acne. i have done multiple experiments and everytime i abstain for 3 days or more my skin begins to clear. when i did only 2 masturbations per week my skin was perfect other than 1 or 2 whiteheads the day after i ejaculated. so basically this whole "theory" is true for some people like me. i dont know the exact reason. if it has to do with dht or what. anyway i was doing well had good skin and then the last 2 days i frickin jacked off 3 times and boom two huge white heads under my frickin mouth! im pissed with myself. but this whole not masturbating anymore has helped me quit porn. im two weeks free and quitting porn for eternity. so thats good. but still its hard to do the no masturbation part but what im going to do is only twice on weekends 1 a week.

and for everyone else wondering about the theory. if it applies to you you would probably tell within a week of not masturbating. you skin should start to clear. pimples will dry up and no new ones will form. thats basically what happened to me. its crazy because the day after i wacked my skin would feel oily, looked more inflamed, and some stupid white heads would pop up! (usually 3 or 4). anyway its weird too because i could see the pimples forming 2 hours within masturbating. for these reasons i beleive some of it might have to do with shame. i feel a little ounce of shame when i masturbate because i just had sex with my self and thats revolting even though everyone does it. usually when we are stressed or anxiety we sweat more and maybe release oil. anyway i am proof that the masturbation acne theory is true.

1st post

Ok, but I'd like a deeper explanation. I'm curious about this. It's effect would spread further than skin concerns, right. Is someone able to break down for me the process that takes place with this? As in, abstinence>>autoimmune response>>resultant skin changes. I want the links there explained. Cheers.


bro. just do the experiment for yourself. if it works it does and woo pee you cured ur acne. if it doesnt then boo hoo. i personally beleive that peoples acne are caused by many different things so urs may or may not apply to this theory(which is true for me). the only way to know is to try it. no offense.


Day 2. This might be a little harder than I thought...


One way to control the addiction is to drink lot of water like every hour. Decaf green tea, athletic exercise also helps.


green tea causes acne. it increases ur dht by 200% just thought you all should know in case u get pimples while abstaining. look it up "green tea raise dht 194%" i was drinking green tea during the abstain period for a while and had recurring pimples and oily skin. stopped the green tea and wala! no more acne while abstaining.

day 1,just started reading this blog and am really interested.ive had acne for over 5 years.really sick of it,started roaccutaine again about a month ago and my skins still jsut been going up and down.my skins affecting me that much now that im to scared to go and hang out with friends.i have pimples all over my face and under my chin.as well theres redness around all of them.going to try this out and see if it helps.as well i was wondering if laying of the dairy products would help me?


take apple cider vinegar and zinc pills. they have extremely helped me with my acne 90% clear and also dont masturbate if you do(try it). good luck and may god speed your recovery from acne.

ok ill join in

end of day 1: after 5 days of clear skin i have two white heads
