#3403143 Magnesium Cured My Back Acne

Posted by IDK111 on 24 December 2013 - 08:15 AM

How long did it take you to see results?


Hi Mark,


It took me about 3-4 days to realize I was not getting any new ones.  After 1 week, I knew my back had stopped getting new ones.  After 2 weeks, my back was clear (of even little small ones).  But the cysts went away fast. 

So 1-2 weeks to get rid of the acne, and then a few months to get rid of the scarring.  I stil; have hyperpigmentation scars and I've been on the magnesium since mid-October.  So...  But then again, my back acne was pretty severe.  I was offered Accutane and declined.


I also did not mention it, but it helped with my chest acne too.  My chest acne was mild though.  Nothing major.  But it still got rid of it.


Good luck!

#3403067 Make Your Own Foundation! (2 Ingredients)

Posted by IDK111 on 23 December 2013 - 06:47 PM

Hey girls,


I have a suggestion... I don't know if has been brought up,  but why not make a DIY foundation?


Start with a base:  You can choose arrowroot powder (which is what I use) or cornstarch.

Then to add color:  Use cocoa powder.  Or turmeric powder (if you have yellow undertones).


But the base is arrowroot or cornstartch, and then for color, you can use whatever (cinnamon...etc)  but cocoa is the one that is most used... :D  And that I used.


GREAT for acne.


I just put it in my old bare minerals container, and bought myself a new brush.  And put my DIY foundation in there.  Also, if you just want a transclucent powder (no color), then just use the arrowroot powder.  Aaaaaaaaamazing. :D  Cheap, and no harsh irritating ingredients!


You can also google this to find alternative recipes.  This is just what I use.


Good luck!

#3390693 Medications Causing Deficiencies

Posted by IDK111 on 25 October 2013 - 09:10 PM

I will not go into detail, but I have personally experienced this.  I was on Spironolactone for 1 month and it affected my body.  Still experienced symptoms almost 6 years later.  Got it fixed by supplementing the nutrients it depletes (iron).  It also depletes folic acid, but I just found this out so I'm going to start supplementing.


But doctors are prescribing medications left and right without thinking how much harm it does to the body.  FYI I have always taken a multivitamin.  So I'm really surprised...  But I don't remember taking multivitamin with iron?  Also, b12 is better absborbed as methyl while most multis are cobyl...   Same with folic acid.  Better to use folate.  There is a gene mutation that MANY people have where they can not process these nutrients that are commonly fortiying our foods.  Methylation is used to DETOX the body!  look it up.  The gene mutation is MTHFR.  No, ... i'm not calling you a muthaf*cka... loool


But other examples are ... biotin deficiency from antibiotics... Many websites will say biotin deficiency is rare.  Are they kidding me?  It is not!!!  They assume biotin deficiency is rare because our good bacteria is supposed to make it.  But with all of the drugs today that kill those bacteria,....  biotin deficiency is common!!! b12 deficiency from metformin.....  folic acid deficiency from birth control....  zinc deficiency....    look up the drugs that you have taken and see what it has depleted in your body.  Might be your answer.

Good luck.
