You have to learn to manage your acne. Were these doctors who aced their classes and were probably the smartest people unable to cure my acne? Is that what they went to medical school for? To advise patients to manage their expectations. I had had enough. This was my life and I was sick of waking up everyday to see a new bump on my face. There had to be a way to cure this forever.
And so my quest to find a cure; not a treatment; a cure to my acne. After reading countless forums, books and academic papers, it dawned on me that doctors did not know much. They were basically drug pushers interested in pursuing money or paying off their student loans. The medical profession as a whole is designed to treat symptoms and not the causes. Acne is a problem that for the most part is dealt with a ‘shock and awe’ approach. The dermatologist or face doctor bad skin acne treatment consists of using prescription strength drugs (monocycline, doxycycline, tetracycline) to kill off the bacteria on your skin. At the same time, they give you harsh chemicals (benzoyl peroxide, acid based lotions) to make the pH of your skin acidic. These two methods destroy healthy skin cells along with the bacteria. However, after a while bacteria becomes resistant and the doctor promptly increases dosage to compensate. Meanwhile, your skin cells are getting demolished and unable to regenerate. No wonder people get red, swollen and inflamed skin in response to these methods.
There is only one way to cure acne. And that way requires you to change your diet and lifestyle. Chemicals and drugs are a recipe for liver, kidney and stomach damage. You must realize that in order to fix acne you need to figure out it’s causes. Acne is caused by oily skin. But what causes oily skin? That is the ultimate question. You need to find out the truth, you owe it to yourself.
