The Truth

08 March 2015 - 05:20 PM

Many acne sufferers have gut damage.  Damage to the intestines makes it more difficult to absorb vitamin A.  The vitamin A that is obtained is used very quickly because of the damaged gut, which means vitamin A needs to be replenished more often.

To combat inflammation, the liver releases vitamin A.

 

Products like Accutane, and Retin-A utilize vitamin A as one of the most crucial ingredients.  However, these treatments may further damage your body and your gut by killing off the good bacteria, and only providing temporary acne relief which may end up much worse sometime after the treatment is over.

 

I am nearing the end of my acne journey.  I will gather information and post it on this topic for everyone else to share.  Please feel free to add anything you'd like.

 

This topic is for any and all evidence and cures!  Please add any amount of crucial information on acne and everything that surrounds it!  Including your own experience with random things!


What Acne.org Has Done For All Of Us?

15 January 2015 - 10:54 PM

I'm a Vet! (2400 users online)

 

This will be my last topic for a long time.  I only do topics if I feel necessary, but I'ma chill on that stuff for now.

 

So, I'm not trying to kiss acne.org's or ass or anything, but I was surprised to see no one created a topic like this before.  Acne.org has done so much for me and others over the years.  Two people even met and got married on it!  So I just wanted to create this out of appreciation, and for everyone to share their stories on how this website changed their lives.  For me, it helped me on my path to clear my acne. 

 

Short summary of my experience:

Got acne at 11, turned cystic at 12, started using acne.org at 16 when I got tired of acne ruining my experiences.

I thought masturbation caused my acne when I was 16.  I came on here and saw the 100 day abstinance from masturbation challenge (which was hell) and failed miserably all the way through age 17.  At 18, I saw a post on here about vitamin D supplements.  Around that time, I figured I should heal from the inside and figure out what is wrong with my body for me to have acne.  I fell in love with someone, which helped me to stop masturbating.  I didn't even realize it until I realized I went 2 weeks without doing it.  So I studied food allergies and saw a naturopath.  I got a food sensitivity test and since then, I've been clear when not cheating on my boring shitty diet. 

I'm also a veggetarian since May 23 or 24.  I know it's unrelated.  Whatever.


Acne.org Won't Work On Phones Or Smaller Screens

11 January 2015 - 12:10 AM

So, Acne.org's profile pictures and original layout won't show up on smaller tablet resolutions or phone screens. This sucks because the profile pictures and layout are a huge part of the experience for me. I usually wait until I can go to the library to get on because of this, which is probably a good thing because I overdose on Acne.org, but it still sucks not to be able to experience this on my phone or tablet when it's long ways instead of widescreen.

 

Yes, we can still access the website from our phones, but that's without seeing the profile pictures and convient layout. I can see the original layout and profile pictures on my tablet, too, but that's only if it's in the widescreen position. If the screen is long ways, it dissapears. I realize this may sound nitpicky, but it realm makes a world of difference for me and I'm sure for many others, too. I appreciate everything this website has offered us, and would be willing to help make enhancements anyway I can if we can make this possible.

 

 

I'm forreal. Hit me up if theres anything I can do. Thanks!

This section is for news and information on harmful food products that may be ruining our bodies and causing our acne and bad health.

Huey was right.  High fructose corn syrup can kill.  It contains mercury which is extremely dangerous.  Companies realized they were cornered recently, so they changed the name of the ingredient to just "fructose."  Just FYI to everyone out there to look out.

 

I stopped eating EVERYTHING that wasn't organic, or that I couldn't read the ingredients on.  I was still breaking out when I realized the baking soda I used contained corn.  It didn't state it on the label.  Those sneaky bastards.
