The true holistic approach

I thought this was interesting. Isn't it funny to see low-carb way back in the 1800s?

Can anyone draw any conclusions on what seems to be working for health and weight loss as a commonality with all these fad diets?

Reduction in sugar.

Also, re, the portion size confusion. Eat large portions of low calorie nutrient dense foods like broccoli, greens, etc.

Sweet, thanks. : ) But I'm still going to be more careful about my diet though, I want to see the results and how things will change. I tend to eat bread in the morning and I'm going to eat less of it now or maybe even replace it with something else (don't know what else lol)

How much olive oil do you drink and also do you feel a little sick when you take your zinc. When i take 50mg zinc pills i usually feel pretty light headed.

i take a tablespoon of olive oil. make sure you plug your nose and rinse/swallow it down with some water while your nose is plugged because i think it tastes horrible. and yeah i noticed at the beginning that taking 50mg zinc pills made me light headed only on an empty stomach, so eat some food. but don't eat grains and take zinc after, it prevents absorption.

Let me explain a bit here.

Here's a quote from the beginning of his first letter:

It's a secret that probably not in 1 in 1,000 people

know or will ever figure out on their own.

The REASON that most people don't ever figure out this

secret is that it's TOO OBVIOUS.

He himself knows that there is no secret, but what he is trying to say is that the solution to solve acne is so easy and obvious that many tend to overlook it. Now for those who already know most of these solutions especially those in the nutrition & holistic health section, this is nothing new but still I believe he sum it up in a great way. ;)

I've been able to subscribe to this newsletter and it is the real thing I have read for years about acne! I'm sorry to the author of this letter, I really need to post this out here. This would be long because it is composed of a 10 days worth of newsletter. Be prepared to be shocked!

How to reduce your acne 80% in 5 days

How to reduce your acne QUICKLY.

I've learned a secret to reduce your acne that

I'm going to share with you in this special report.

It's a secret that probably not in 1 in 1,000 people

know or will ever figure out on their own.

The REASON that most people don't ever figure out this

secret is that it's TOO OBVIOUS.

Let me explain...

I personally think that most acne sufferers feel

a very powerful desire to fight acne by attacking

the SYMPTOMS.

A pimple ? No problem, let's put some

cream on it, let's try squeezing it, putting

antibiotics on it, drying it up, freezing it,

heating it up, etc.

Maybe you've been there yourself.

I know I have. Many, many times, in fact.

This approach of attacking the symptoms is like

trying to put out a 3 foot high fire by blowing

on the flames. Its JUST not going to happen. If

anything, the fire will just get bigger.

Attacking the symptoms ONLY IRRITATES YOUR SKIN

and PRODUCES MORE ACNE.

So what do firemen do? They go after the root of

the problem, the root of the fire. They work from

the inside out, because when you extinguish the

center of the fire, it's impossible for the flames

to exist if the root of the fire is gone.

So what's the secret to reduce your acne?

THE SECRET

Remember at the beginning when I told you I was

going to share a secret with you about how to

cure acne that not 1 in 1000 people will figure

out on their own ?

Well here it is:

CURE YOUR ACNE FROM THE INSIDE OUT.

Its simple, very possible and provide huge benefits to your

health at the same time. I'll tell you exactly how to go about

it tomorrow in the next email. Together, we'll cure your

acne forever, you have my word.

I'll talk to you again tomorrow,

Your friend,

Eric Masterson

Hey wapak, this is the special "Curing from Inside"

Hello wapak,

How's the acne today? I hope its a little bit better

than yesterday. The following is the first piece of the

puzzle in getting rid of your acne quickly and permanently.

To acheive quick and permanent results, you have to start

ignoring the symptoms (pimples, redness, whiteheads, blackheads,

basically all the stuff we usually look at in the mirror every

30 minutes ) You have to concentrate on what is really

causing your acne. By doing so, you will also be healthier

overall and other diseases will never bother you.

You see, this stuff doesn't just apply to acne.

So let's break this down...

Your body is equipped with the most advanced cleansing

in the world. This cleansing system is responsible for

keeping your hormones in balance, toxins out of your body (so

important for clear skin) and it is directly responsible

for nutrient absorption and if this cleansing system

were to ever stop working, you would DIE in less than 3

days.

But for most acne sufferers, your "internal cleansing system"

is only working at 30% or worse. If you were to get it up to even

50% or 75%, you would see MASSIVE improvements in your skin.

If you haven't caught on yet, we're talking about your

DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. A series of miles of tube in your body

responsible for filtering out the bad and keeping the good.

This also includes vital organs like the liver, but that's

for later.

So how do you turbo charge your digestive system and take your

internal cleansing system from to 75% in a few days?

Here goes... here's some TRIED and TESTED stuff that will have

an immediate impact on your acne *this week*.

1. Start eating some 'digestive accelerators' such as FRUITS,

Psyllium Husk or anything else that's high in fiber. I like to

Eat 2 apples in the morning, or a giant orange in the morning.

This "jump starts" your digestive system in the morning.

Tangent on this:

<I don't know if you've ever heard of the "3 day acne cure", but

I just basically told you the entire system for free right there.

All the author says is to eat apples non-stop to cleanse your body.

It works on the same principal, but is NOT healthy to eat 20 apples

per day, anyways, I just saved you 40$ so you don't have to buy

his crappy system>

However, eating 1-2 apples in the morning DOES help a lot. Its

part of my special 'anti-acne' food list.

Just applying this technique alone reduced my acne considerably,

but we're JUST getting started. There's SOOO many more "secrets"

that other people are selling but I'll just be TELLING you them

tomorrow.

Stay tuned, get EXCITED, tomorrow I'm going to unveil the

absolute biggest mistake that acne sufferers make.

( And we ALL make this mistake )

As Promised: The Biggest Mistake We All Make

Hello again!

How's it going ? How's the skin ? My mood used to be related almost

exclusively to how my acne was doing... On days that my skin

was good, I was happy and on days where it was bad, my mood was

very much along the lines of "don't talk to me !" Trust me, its

much more pleasant to wake up happy everyday.

Did you get apples? Oranges? You should if you haven't already!

Don't skip it because its a small thing, the small things add up!

Ok, ok,

We're going to start speeding things up a bit in

the next couple days, hold on to your hats, we'll be clearing your

acne.

Remember how we were talking about your digestive system being

responsible for keeping your body clean and acne free?

Well, your digestive system is like... <ahem> a big toilet.

If you CLOG it up with paper and things it can't flush, it will

overload and spew everything on the floor.

Your body is kind of the same. When you specific foods that are

HARD to digest, you are essentially clogging up your toilet.

Clogged Toilet = Overflow on the floor

Clogged Digestive System = Overflow through the skin

SIMPLE.

What clogs it up ?

Eating too many 'gummy & hard to digest foods'

Breaded products are some of the best at clogging up your system.

That HUGE pizza you eat at night ? Yeah, THAT clogs up your

body like no other. I've been there many times.

Even WORSE, those soft, moist pastries (think banana bread,

brownies, soft cookies) Those act exactly like a giant cork.

"But Eric! There's bread in everything"

I know, I know. First, brown bread is much easier to digest.

Second, if you are going to eat bread, eat LESS of it at a time.

If you eat a little of it, slowly... it will be MUCH easier for

your body to process.

The hardest things are always the things you have to "not do".

Trust me, this one is worth it.

If you eliminate eating huge "clogging foods" you'll see MASSIVE

differences in your skin in record time. Your energy will also

double.

What if your body is ALREADY clogged with these foods?

Well there's a special way to UNCLOG it no matter what!

Its amazing, with that technique, you can eat almost

ANYTHING (even if you shouldn't!) and STILL get away with it.

Tomorrow I will teach you exactly how to do it and improve

your entire quality of life tremendously.

Short: The ONE technique that fixes almost everything.

Hello wapak,

Today is a great day.

We're really going to start shaking things up today (literally)

and I'm telling you right now, you might not like it immediately

but you'll LOVE it after a week.

How to get your digestive system to a 75%+ efficiency and have

DRAMATICALLY clearer skin ?

If you had something stuck in a long pipe.. How would you get it

out if you weren't allowed shoving in a rod to physically push it

out ? (trust me, we don't want that)

I would shake it. VICIOUSLY.

And what if shaking it alone didn't work ?

Well... I would add some sort of lubricant to make it slip.

I'd probably add oil, lots of oil until it covered all the walls

of my pipe and then I would shake it again.

Humans are the same. We need oils to be properly lubricated.

THIS is why oils are so important. If you had no oil in your

body, you wouldn't be alive.

Unfortunately, most ACNE sufferers don't enough of the right oil.

You don't want the sticky oil that hardens up in your body

(that's the one you find in most fast foods!).

You want oil that is liquid and viscous at human body temperature,

so at 98.6 °F which is 37.0 °C. Olive oil and coconut oil are

some of the best oils you can take! Flaxseed is also excellent.

These oils WILL lubricate your system and help your acne

tremendously.

Once your body is lubricated, shake it. How ? Well jumping up and

down isn't much fun (unless you're on a trampoline) but walking,

jogging, running or doing almost ANY activity is a great way to

shake your body.

Trust me, if you oil your body up properly and THEN exercise,

magical things will happen. You will be seeing bowel movements

like never before, GOOD ones that aren't painful. You might even

clog your toilet (the real one)... heheh.

Doing this regularly will have HUGE impacts on your skin. Your

body will be completely clean of toxins and your skin will

see a massive improvement.

There's only ONE aspect left that will make ALL of these steps

work SO MUCH FASTER. It also CONTRADICTS everything you have

probably read about health before.

Its really groundbreaking.

Once you understand the concepts behind it, you'll laugh at

all the people recommending the EXACT opposite. This has a very

direct impact on your acne!

A discovery that contradicts everything

Hey wapak,

Today I have something to share with you that I discovered

by accident when I was suffering from acne.

I just COULDN'T understand it before, but now that I grasped

the concept, it just seems to obvious.

Every time I used to go on vacation, I would eat out at

restaurants 3 times a day. After every meal, I would

completely full... restaurants tend to do that to me.

However, I was moving around a lot (you don't stay still when

you're on vacation!) and I noticed that when I CONSISTENTLY ate

large portions for a week, my skin actually started clearing up.

What the?! I was eating junk! Stuff I would normally NEVER

eat and YET, it wasn't affecting me.

I was perplexed. This was the complete OPPOSITE of what I was

expecting to happen and it took me a LONG time to figure out

why this was happening.

In the end, it was simple, the large,u consistent volumes of food

that I was eating was PUSHING the old food out. I was essentially

cleaning out my body by giving it a lot of stuff to process.

That also explained why when I would eat very little (for example

forgetting to eat a meal because I'm busy at work), I would

break out ! When I ate irregularly and small portions, I just

wasn't putting enough pressure and things were getting stuck!

So how do we apply this ?

EAT enough AND In a regular fashion! Food "pushes" its way through

your digestive system. If you're one of those people that don't

eat much, then you won't have much food "pushing down" its way

through your digestive system.

After figuring this out, I started having regular healthy meals

and I LOST a bit of weight. Aye, its weird how the body works

sometimes.

Not only that, but my entire body was MUCH more resistant to acne.

Things that would of previously affected me... didn't.

Tomorrow we'll explore the number one way to clear up your

acne that MODELS and ACTORS use on a daily basis!

Best of all, it requires ABSOLUTELY no effort!

Sincerely,

Eric Masterson

The acne secret used by actors and models

Hi wapak,

How's it going ? Did you get the apples? Oil?

Start avoiding heavy clogging foods? Exercise?

I know its a lot, but we're doing a complete overhaul here!

Now you can understand why I have been letting feeding you

this bit by bit. But seriously, get EXCITED because the

best is yet to come!

But for today, here's a SIMPLE way to help your acne that

gives very quick results.

According to my research and personal experience, there is a general

trend in acne severity every single year.

In the summer, people tend to have less acne and in the winter,

people tend to break out. Usually people are more active during

the summer, but a part from that, the other main factor is the

exposure to sunlight.

In winter, people tend to hibernate and stay inside... a LOT.

There's been a lot of debate lately on the effects

of the sun on humans. For the past 10 years the media has

been feeding us that the sun the BAD and you should avoid

it at all cost, a bit like Micheal Jackson does.

By the way, how healthy does HE look ?

There is a new study that was just published by the British

Medical Association that talks about the sun. In short, it says

that: getting 15 minutes of sun per day

dramatically improves your body's health & immune system.

Does this help acne? You bet!

Getting 15 minutes of sun per day is one of the most beneficial

things you can do for acne. This should help you out a bit this

summer.

Getting a little bit of sun:

- Boosts your immune system

- Kills the acne bacteria on your face

- Makes you sweat out all the impurities

- Opens your pores

- Reduces acne inflammation (as long as its small amounts of

sun)

All these things are amazing for acne, so if you are being a

hermit and staying inside all the time, get out a bit more!

Sun tanning beds are NOT ideal. In fact, they can be down right

dangerous. However, some people still use them to kill the acne

bacteria and it does work.

I wouldn't recommend it however. Its better to get 15 minutes of

natural sunlight, the benefits are the same ! Get some sun,

maybe while getting a little bit of exercise, it will do miracles.

Tomorrow might be the most important part yet !

Sincerely,

Eric Masterson

Catch up day ! Recap of what we covered so far.

Hello wapak,

I've thrown a lot of stuff at you in the past week to help clear

up your acne. It's a lot of stuff to implement in a week, and we

still have a LOT more to come.

In fact, the best methods for clearing up acne RAPIDLY are still

to come. Seriously, this upcoming technique destroys acne like

no other.

But before unveiling it to the world, I am still testing out

with a select group of people to see exactly which proportions

work the best.

Trust me, you will be amazed when this thing comes out!

Its important to continue implementing the knowledge you have

received this week.

This week, we have covered that a faulty digestive system

is a major factor in acne production due to toxins being improperly

expelled.

In order to aid this,

- You should take 1-2 apples or orange per day.

- Increase your oil intake.

- Exercise 10-15 minutes a day

- Avoid 'clogging foods'

In addition, we also covered that natural sunlight is

beneficial to acne, it is recommended to get 10-15 minutes of

natural sunlight per day.

Start by implementing these few things every day and build them

into your daily routine. If you haven't already, now is the time

to start!

The sooner you start, the sooner you will clear your acne!

See ya in a few days,

Your friend,

Eric Masterson

The 3 simple steps to getting acne.

Hello wapak,

How's the skin doing ? We aren't stopping until your acne is

completely clear!

Today is REALLY important, we're getting down to the REAL

reason acne forms.

Have you ever looked at a pimple and wondered:

"Why are you on my face, where everyone can see you?"

I remember thinking this ALL the time.

Why is it pimples are most likely to appear on the face?

For acne to form, 3 conditions must be met, and these conditions

are usually met on your face!

If ONE condition is not met, acne simply cannot form.

Its like trying to start a fire without air!

The conditions for acne are:

- Bacteria

- Clogged pore

- Sebum

Tale of a pimple

Step 1. Sebum (the white stuff) is trapped because of clogged pores

and stays underneath your skin for an extended period of time.

Step 2. Bacteria LOVES sebum, it eats away at it and uses it as

main source of food. Combine stagnant sebum with bacteria,

and bacteria will multiply and develop. Similar to mold growing

on rotten food.

Step 3. Your body's immune system responds by sending white

blood cells to fight the large accumulation of bacteria, causing

the reddish inflammation.

Eliminate any of these steps and you won't have acne!

Tomorrow we'll go over EXACTLY how to eliminate the conditions

for acne to form. I hope you're anxious to try it out !

Talk to you soon!

Your friend,

Eric M.

Eliminating the Conditions that cause Acne

Hello!

Its time to unveil one of the most effective methods to reducing

your acne. This is so important that you might want to actually

PRINT this out, or copy / paste it into a notepad file to refer

to it later.

I'm a HUGE believer in curing acne from the inside out,

but with this process, you will accelerate the process ten folds!

So let's recap the variables that cause acne:

- Bacteria

- Sebum

- Clogged pores

Bacteria will ALWAYS be there, it multiplies too rapidly to stop.

And the more you try to stop it, the stronger it will return.

This is what acne creams try to suppress and it always fails.

To make matters even worse, it dries up the skin and

clogs more pores!

Sebum will always be there, without it, your skin would look

like paper. Accutane and other powerful drugs aim at suppressing

sebum, once again, this is unhealthy and the body fights back a

few months after the treatment, causing the famous 'rebound effect'.

So what's left?

The clogged pores. And its REALLY easy to unclog.

Unfortunately, most people just don't know how to do it.

They use scrubs and masks that irritate the skin more than

anything else. Or they get special acne scrubs which kill more

skin cells! Resulting in clogged pores!

Dry skin is dead skin, if you ever get dry skin, then you have

clogged pores.

The best way to unclog your pores, and dramatically reduce

your acne, is through my special steam & scrub & toner.

- Pore unclogging 101 -

Step 1. Simply steam your face for 10-13 minutes. This will

open all your pores and all the impurities and skin cells will

be BEGGING to come off.

Step 2. Mix 75% baking soda with 25% water, it will turn into

a soft white pasty scrub. Use this to GENTLY massage your face

immediately after steaming. Baking soda is extreme basic and

will suck all the dead skin cells and impurities from your face.

Step 3. Rinse with cold water, apply toner

( I use 50% ACV - 50% water, but any toner will do)

The FIRST day after you do this, your skin will appear worse.

This is because everything that was about to 'come out' is

coming out.

The SECOND day will show improvements

The THIRD & FOURTH day will produce dramatic improvements.

Repeat this process once every 2 weeks.

This should help a LOT in battling your acne. I remember the first

time I did this, I was completely blown away by the results!

It's unbelievable how much it helps.

Until next time!

Your friend,

Eric Masterson.

Question session - What kind of drinks can I have with acne ?

*** THIS WEEKS'S QUESTIONS ***

> Eric,

>

> Every time I go out with my friends and drink a lot, I always

> wake up the next morning with new pimples. Are there any

> alcoholic drinks to get at a club that won't break me out ?

> If so, what's the best alcoholic drink to get at a club?

MY COMMENTS:>>

Its not the alcohol that's making him break out, its the sugar.

Some people are more prone to sugar related breakouts than others.

Therefore, anything mixed with coke, sprite or ice tea is very

bad because its quite high in sugar. (Red Bull won't be

any better either)

This is the same reason why SOME people have to avoid orange

juice! And oranges are good for you!

Alcohols to avoid:

Any syrup/sweet alcohol (ie: Limonchello, Rum, Goldshlagger, etc)

Mixing agents to avoid:

(Orange juice, Coke, 7UP, Ice Tea, Energy Drinks)

(ps. diet coke is even worse than regular coke because

it contains aspartame)

Anything else should be OK! I know that doesn't leave much...

You could have wine...

In all seriousness though, I wouldn't really

worry too much about having 1-2 drinks. Enjoy your life,

its alright to deviate from an ideal 'path' once in a while,

as long as you get back on it.

> hi what kind of soap do you use ?

>

> B. From Texas

MY COMMENTS:>>

I tend to use mostly water on my face, but as overall soap I

really like goat milk soap. Its amazing and doesn't dry up

your skin. I highly recommend it.

As usual, feel free to send me any questions !

Your friend,

Eric Masterson

Talk to you soon!

Right, I have starsted his regime and after I have a shower my skin feels really dry, it's not flaking just really taut, I hate that. So i've been using a tiny bit of palmers cocoa butter moisturiser on...is this a bad idea? What are the alternatives to moisturiser, or should I just grit my teeth and bare with the dry skin?

Good post btw. :)

Nah, if palmers cocoa butter doesn't cause your skin to react in a harsh way then keep doing so. It's trial and error what works best for you or not. ;)

Ya I remember reading this a while back.

There's no way I'm putting that stuff on my face, though. Unless all of a sudden, everyone talks about how amazing baking soda is.

Basically the most important things from this is:

- beware of grains (especially containing gluten)

- get your veggies

- shoot for low gi content (which he doesn't mention, but he shoulda)

- excercise and sun

This post is gonna make me get some coconut oil, though :). I've been meaning to get some kind of oil.

I think these forums are great for advice and help to get rid of acne. However I do think that there is TOO MUCH information that contradicts itself.

I think that there needs to be a definative answer to all of this. Some people say that they ave found the perfect product or supplement however it doesnt work for everyone.

First of all we need to asbtablish which is the right route to take. Synthetic or Natural approach, but we dont need people just posting saying Natural or Synthetic. What we need is people explaing why they believe that it is the best way...

Once we`ve worked out which is the best route, we then need to suggest a complete acne regimme.

I think then the only thing that would be on the forums would be either about the success rate of the regimme or suggestens on how to improve it.

I personally believe that acne is cured from the INSIDE OUT. Treat the cause then the visable symtoms (acne lesions).

Does anyone agree with me on this????

Let me know.

I tried to steam my face today. I think I went too far. I steamed my face for 30 minutes while it was boiling. It was so painful and my face is still red like it's bleeding. I hope I didn't damage anything.

Anyway, I didn't have a toner. My question is, without using a toner afterward, could it help the bacteria spread around my face and make things worse? I just used my cleanser which seemed to disappear into my skin!

The only thing I don't entirely agree with is eating large portions. If I eat larger meals-even healthy ones, my skin breaks out a little. I noticed that for a few days, when I was super busy, I really didn't eat much. I ate really small portions only 2-3 times a day. My day was practically clear within two days of doing this. I don't think it's a FALSE statement, just that people's bodies are different. Mine likes smaller portions.
