the most frustrating thing for me is when loved ones or friends moan like it's the end of the world when they have a tiny pimple and you're stood there with 30 of the things! it's like a 10 stone woman complaining she is fat infront of a 20 stone woman !! 




#3401562 How ya feelin' about your acne today?

sorry to hear of your struggles moonlitriver, seeing as though you have tried to antibiotic route have you checked out the diet & hollistic health forum yet? in my opinion if the antibiotics aren't working for you then it could be an internal problem relating to your diet/hormones... hopefully you can find something relevant over there... you are not alone though, millions of us are going through this battle too! chin up eusa_pray.gif




#3400837 10 Years Of Acne, Working On Solution

Posted by brandylad on 14 December 2013 - 06:50 AM

i am currently in the process of doing this too! I have been on an anti candida diet for roughly 3 months ( candida is overgrowth of bad bacteria typically caused by excessive use of antibiotics, you could similarly have this as i had the oral tablets you have taken too ) and for the past 3 weeks i have been adding supplements to treat a leaky gut. Both candida and leaky gut can intertwine and luckily the diets are fairly similar..

 

I am basically gluten, dairy ( bar live yoghurt ), yeast and sugar free. My skin has actually gotten worse during this period but that is to be expected as bacteria dying off has to leave the body. However, i have actually started to sleep for a solid 6 hours during the night which is very very rare for me, bowel movements have increased to everyday instead of once every 3 or 4 days. I am an active gym goer and there is actually a protein made by iso 100 which has the lactose removed from it so you could always look into that ( very pricey though ).

 

In terms of timescale i really have no idea, like i said it's been 3 months on basically the same diet as you and i've seen no improvement in my skin, i have basically used antibiotics for my skin for 9 years so obviously the probiotics are going to take a long time to restore balance



In terms of supplements i am currently taking a multivitamin, cod liver oil, digestive enzymes, zinc, probiotic 20 billion strain and recently in the past 3 weeks i have introduced glutamine and milk thistle
