Why cinnamon? What do you think that does? I think it's an irritant. Try turmeric. That would be beneficial. and yogurt. And honey if you wish.

Well, start by quitting the soft drinks and any other sugary drink..  Today. Most juices are high sugar btw.

 

Water is not horrible. But you can make teas, add a squeeze of lemon, mint sprigs, basil, cucumber slices, ginger, etc.

Not using soaps & cleansers is good for your skin period. All of your skin.  But whether or not it's enough to clear any part of you varies from person to person.  What's your diet/lifestyle like?


In Topic: Organic "green" Diet And Cystic Acne

Few doctors know anything about nutrition and have an idiotic belief it has little impact.  Think about it a moment.  How can you possibly believe what and how you eat doesn't affect everything happening in your body? 

 

Anyway, there have been numerous researchers and numerous studies demonstrating the many ways diet and specific nutrients affect the mechanisms involved in acne formation. Including researchers testing specific diets on acne sufferers finding that the diet did improve acne.

 

Thanks, yes, I am going through trial and error I guess... There are so many conflicting views and studies with conflicting conclusions out there... Maybe they're all right and it's just that everybody is different and has different sensitivities. I really don't know anymore... sad.png But I do believe that diet and lifestyle has some connection because there seem to be a lot more acne sufferers than there were in the past. I don't know, maybe I just didn't notice it but it seems to be the case. Even in rural Japan, I mean, it seems to be a lot more common now than I would have thought (for people to have acne).

 

Every one is different and do have different sensitivities.  But no, they are not all right. Anyone who thinks what you do to yourself, especially diet, has no impact on everything to do with your health is wrong.

I am unable to go on birth control pills, due to the fact that they make me sick, as well as I don't want to be taking false hormones to get rid of the problem temporarily...  I am keeping a fairly wholesome diet, and I am trying to stay away from high yeast foods and I drink homemade smoothies a lot (just fruit and vegetables, sometimes a scoop of peanut butter or splash of unsweetened almond milk when i want to mix things up)  But is that all I can really do?  I certainly have felt better during this food diet, but my skin hasn't improved much...more it has stabilized...


As natural as possible circadian cycle with good sleep, exercise and stress management are equally important.
