  1. hello hello, I have been reading these forums for YEARS and have just recently felt confident enough to share my own success with certain products. when I was 23 my chin exploded in painful red cysts that refused to dissipate. it was shit. after lots of research and blood tests it turns out that I, like tons of women, am estrogen dominant. I started acupuncture and taking supplements for my imbalance. After three months, I do not have any more cysts. This is what I take: Margarite pills (plum flower brand is most reputable) Estroblock Zinc (I used the Vitamin Code ones) Fermented Cod Liver Oil (Green Pasture) Myomin (Chi's Enterprise) Vitex (Gaia) Sauerkraut (for digestion) Dandelion Tea/or cook with dandelions (for my liver) So my cysts are gone but I'm left with clogged pores (no inflammation/pain/redness) from all the years of acne production on my chin. I started using topical vitamin A every night two weeks ago and a few of those clogged pores have purged and disappeared. I'm hoping that with continuous use all these little bumps will disappear. I have dry skin so I make sure to MOISTURIZE the hell out of my face with non-comedogenic products after I put on the vitamin A. (Note that prescription Retin-A can clog your pores...so I refuse to use that). I was feeling so good about not having any cysts that I slacked off a bit on my "clean" diet this past month and ate quite a bit of cheese. Usually, within a day of eating cheese, I would develop some pretty nasty monsters on my face. But, there is nothing! I am of course still paranoid that a cyst could develop at any moment but so far....nothing. P.S. acne.org gave me the username "bigfeel"....what the heck? how do I change that?
  2. Hi everyone, So for the past six years I've tried diet, naturopathy, visualizing, and birth control to get rid of my cysts and whiteheads that appear mainly on my jawline. Birth control was the only thing that totally cleared it, but made me so depressed I couldn't enjoy it. So for the past two months I've been on Estroblock, which consists of DIM and Indole-3 carbinol. And WOW. I can't recommend this stuff enough. With birth control, I'd generally have to wait two to three months to see results. This stuff took about two weeks for me before I completely stopped breaking out. It freaking WORKS. And no mood-altering side effects. Also, I've been eating whatever the hell I want, including dairy and sugar. Still clear. Feels like a miracle pill and SUCH a relief. I had to spread the word.
  3. My acne cure after pill

    Forums Other acne treatments 1 reply

    hey there I have literally never posted on an acne forum however I have trawled this forum and all over the internet for the past few years and can finally say my acne is under control (touch wood). I thought I would share on here what worked for me in the hope it might help others suffering! Basically, my story is the same as so many people - I came off the pill after around 10 years (dianne 35) and all of a sudden my face, and my back was a mess! I tried everything dietary first - I tried giving up dairy, gluten, sugar, caffeine, you name it. Nothing made much of a dent. I had literally never had bacne before so that was probably my most painful to deal with psychologically. So first and foremost - what worked for my bacne. I tried head and shoulders, specialty bloody zinc soaps, nizoral, everythinggg topical. Nada. What DID work was literally cutting a lemon in half grinding HUGE amounts of himalayan seasalt on top of it and then rubbing into my back. It sounds ridiculous but after a few weeks my bacne was gone. My face persisted. My face persisted with bad breakouts for another year. I tried every vitamin in the book. I was convinced my acne was hormonal (all the tell tale signs in terms of where I broke out and the type of acne it was. Plus I was 29, Im not going through puberty anymore!). Next I came across Estroblock (delgado). I took this with a liver supplement for about 4/5 months – slight improvement but not game changing. I then introduced their DHT blocker. This helped more but again, not entirely. THEN I introduced Evening primrose oil capsules. I took 1000mg 3 x a day. THIS is what I believe it my biggest game changer. Evening primrose helps regulate your hormones. And none of that 'better before it gets worse bullshit'. Within a few weeks my skin was ALOT better, almost clear. I have gone through about 2 massive bottles now (I use natures way - 200 capsules in each bottle) and my skin has stayed consistently good. NOT perfect, I still get pimples here and there but in comparison to what it was, so much improvement! I also break open a capsule rub it on my face at night as its great for complexion. I hope this helps somebody. To date I am still taking estroblock, DHT block and evening primrose. I am still dealing with alot of hyperpigmentation and some clogged pores (I did change my makeup to mineral to try to help this also) but compared to what it was I am ALOT happier in my skin. Goodluck everybody xx
  4. I'm 20 y.o female, struggling with acne for approximately 5 years, recently it was found out that I have uterus inflammation (cervictis)and I was prescribed an antibiotic (for 2 month) called Josamycine I was told it also can be good for cystic inflamed acne but as my acne is hormonal (getting better on BC,than comes back when I stop as it's now + it's almost never severe on forehead extremely bad on cheeks ,temples and jawline ) I started using DIM by natures source 200 mg a day+cod liver oil so the question is - Is it okay to combine this supplements with antibiotic? I'm on my third week of antibiotics and 6 day of using supplements no huge changes in my skin yet just in case how my acne looks like + will it be better to add milk thistle to my routine? thanks ❤️
  5. Comedonal Acne? How to cure?

    Forums Hormonal acne 1 reply

    Hello. Im new to this site. First of all i wanted to figure out what type of acne i have. There are several small bumps i seem to get that dont go away. Been having it for couple of years and it just doesnt get better. also i cut the pill and im scared it might get worse ... How can i cure my acne and are there any other options than accutane or the acne.org Regimen? has anyone Tried estroblock? A side Info: i eat super healthy, keep everything clean and wash my face with african Black Soap. I never had perfect skin, it was worse during puberty but is still not in a good place.
  6. Hi all! I just started taking i3c (precursor to DIM) and Vitex as directed by my naturopath. It has been a week since I started taking them, but my skin is resembling the condition a week before my period (when progesterone is the highest). No cysts. Just some bumps on my forehead and a few white heads on my chin, and nose. Nothing on my cheeks and jawline (knock on wood). Has anyone experienced an initial breakout or purge period? How long does it take to get over it? I did a hormone test and my progesterone is low and my testosterone is high. I am not sure if I have high estrogen, but my progesterone to estrogen ratio is out of whack. My naturopath encouraged me to continue as she wants to balance my hormones first. She also suggested this mud mask with colloidal silver in it. Please tell me your experience in taking vitex or dim, especially if you've been taking it long term! Thanks lots Hannah
  7. Estrogen Dominance? What's That?

    Forums Diet & holistic health 4 replies

    Hi All, Thanks for dropping by. Can some one tell me what it estrogen dominance and the theory behind it? I know that it's a condition where a woman has an imbalance in her estrogen to progesterone ratio, with estrogen being too high (or progesterone being too low), which contributes to acne and an array of PMS. HOWEVER the part I don't get is that, I thought high progesterone gives you more sebum thus more acne, not low. And I've read many scientific papers that high estrogen is good for the skin. The low progesterone contributing to acne theory sounds contradictory to most scientific literatures out there, can some explain the logic to this? And I can't ignore it because so many people are having success controling their hormonal acne with vitex and DIM (estroblock), which makes me want to try this out but first I want to understand it. Any comments as well as personal experience on vitex or DIM will be super appreciated! Thanks, Hannah
  8. Alright y'all.. I just needed to start a forum post and express how much I LOVE this all-natural supplement called ESTROBLOCK!!!! I am not even kidding, it has been an acne miracle!!!! I am someone who has suffered with severe acne for years. I have been on ACCUTANE TWICE and have major scarring from acne. If you go to my blog on here I go into my history with severe acne... If you google, "The Love Vitamin" she goes into detail about her experience with acne and what has CURED HER ACNE (estroblock being one of the major supplements that has CURED HER ACNE!) She also provides you with before and after pictures. Please, ANYONE who has been on Accutane and EVERY medication (oral and topical) that you can EVER think of that is supposed to help acne, PLEASE try this acne miracle supplement, Estroblock!!!! & if there is anyone out there thinking... "Hmmm.. this is an all-natural supplement and I have SEVERE ACNE, this won't work for me." Think AGAIN! Those were my exact thoughts and I had SEVERE CYSTIC ACNE all over my cheeks and chin that has left severe scarring and guess what? This is what my skin looks like today... --------------------------------------------> (See pictures below) Yes.. I do have a bit of make-up on (no cover-up, just blush and bronzer), but as you can see my face is pretty much CLEAR. I just started taking Estroblock 17 days ago and now only have 2 VERY SMALL pimples! 3 weeks ago, my chin was covered in acne... Need I remind you, EVERY new medication, supplement and topical that you take is going to TAKE SOME TIME. You MUST be patient and NOT give up after a week, two or THREE! Stick it out. How fast the supplement works all depends on the person's body chemistry. For me, Estroblock started clearing my skin up in about 1 week. For some, it takes about 3-6 months to fully clear up. SO BE PATIENT!! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to write a comment below or message me. I hope this forum can help someone out there who is currently struggling with their acne.
  9. Continuing my first blog (My Severe Acne Journey)... I am currently 25 and about a month ago, I started to break out AGAIN on my chin, jawline and mouth area. What the heck?!?! I have been on ACCUTANE TWICE and am still suffering from acne??!!? What is this all about? I finally realized that it HAS to be something that is going on internally, so I FINALLY decided to take the holistic approach to curing my acne... and I am SO glad that I did! First off, I started eating WHOLE FOODS and cut out all dairy, sugar and drank tons of water and green tea. I truly believe that your diet has an impact on your skin and although, this holistic diet did not clear my skin up 100%, it did help. Thus, I knew there was something even more going on internally.. So, I started to research some of the top vitamins and supplements online that helps clear up acne. This is when I came across Tracy and "The Love Vitamin" website. Please, whoever is suffering from acne GO CHECK THIS WEBSITE OUT! Especially those who have tried every topical, medication, therapy, etc. to try and cure their acne. I was checking out Tracy's website and watching her YouTube videos online and from her recommendations, decided to buy Estroblock (a hormone balancer). If you do not know what Estroblock is, please google it and check out it's reviews on amazon. People who suffer from acne seem to have AMAZING results with it, including me. I started taking Estroblock about 3 weeks ago and I am not even kidding, my acne on my chin, jawline and mouth area has cleared up immensely. I currently have 2 small pimples (one on my chin and one above my lip), but that is NOTHING compared to 3 weeks ago. Estroblock is also all natural, so it does take time for your body to absorb the supplement thus, you have to be very patient. Even though I have only been taking Estroblock for 3 weeks, I can DEFINITELY see a difference. I swear it's like an ACNE MIRACLE!!!!!!! I cannot wait to see the results a few months from now! PLEASE, anyone who is currently suffering from acne and cannot kick this skin issue, check out Estroblock!!! Especially, if you suffer from hormonal acne. I am also taking some other vitamin's that potentially could have helped clear my skin, but I honestly believe that it is Estroblock that has been the biggest help with clearing my acne. Why? Because I have read SO MANY reviews on how it has helped people clear their acne. I am currently taking: 1 multi-vitamin capsule ONCE a day (I have taken this for years and not only to help my skin, but to help my overall health) 1 probiotic capsule TWICE a day 1 Estroblock capsule TWICE a day 1 Cod Liver Oil capsule TWICE a day I am also still using my topical medication from my dermatologist (clindamycin and tretinion .025%) whenever I have minor breakouts. I only do this because I have so much acne scarring, that I am afraid to completely stop something that has been working for me for the past couple of years. If I didn't already have a ton of acne scarring, I probably would just up and quit the topicals. So, this is my acne story. If anyone has any questions at all, please feel free to comment on here or write me a message. I understand how hard and depressing it is to deal with acne and acne scarring. I feel for all of you that are currently dealing with this skin issue. Keep your head up. Know you are beautiful inside and out and believe that you and strong enough to get through it. "This too shall pass.." I will be praying for you all! Xo Melissa I would also like to add, that I completely cut out dairy about a year ago and it definitely made a difference in my skin and I would have less minor breakouts. Although, I recently started eating dairy here and there and so I began to think that perhaps, that was one of the reasons that I started to break out again... since I was eating quite a bit of it.... :/
  10. I've been taking DIM (Estroblock) for a couple months now. My acne is getting better though I still break out worst before my period and I'm certainly not clear. But I had really bad cystic acne and it is significantly better such that I can occasionally go without makeup and not feel too self conscious. My issue is that my periods have gone from clockwork to early or late and it's driving me crazy. I could always depend on it and mark the day of it's arrival but now it's just a guessing game. My tubes are tied but being a week late is still disconcerting. Does anyone else experience this side effect? Trying to figure out if it's the DIM or just my body changing. I'm 35 so I know it's not THE change but who knows what crazy things my body will do. Also how long should I take Estroblock? I've read a few things that say it is not a good idea to take long term.

I hate trying new things because if my acne spreads, i will feel even worse. Any suggestions? Should i just go for it?
  12. My Acne Challenge

    Blogs JungleBear08's Blog 2 comments

    ABOUT ME I am a 20 year old female, and my skin has been bad since I was about 11 years old. During my school years I got the standard T zone acne, oily skin, whiteheads, the usual stuff that's associated with puberty and all that jazz. Well now I am 20....and my skin is still oily, and the acne is now on my cheeks and jawline mostly, and I am starting to get fed up, acne is meant to have gone now right?! During my teen years I went on antibiotics, topical solutions from the doctor and Accutane....nothing has been a permanent solution, and the Accutane made my whole body ache to the extent that I had to lay down part way through everyday chores such as making my bed because I ached so badly. Pretty sure that's a sign that this drug is not good for you in any way. My acne has never been severe, but it's enough to make me self conscious and upset, and I have been bullied because of it at school too. I was always told to pop my spots to get rid of them, which has now led to me obsessively picking at my face, which is one of the main reasons my skin gets bad (Look up dermatillomania). If I didn't pick, it would be be a lot better, but not picking still won't solve the oil and spots that would still emerge. I have recently got a lot better at not picking, and my skin is improving, but I am seeking out cognitive behavioral therapy to help me control it better. Anyway, I wanted to start this blog because I am fed up with all the lotions and potions not working and probably making everything worse. So I am about to start an alternative acne regime which I am hoping in conjunction with me not picking will really improve my skin, maybe even cure it. After a lot of research, I really believe that acne is a problem caused by something on the inside, such as poor diet, allergies, and deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. I have been eating a lot healthier and lost weight over the past year which I believe has helped to improve my skin, although I am sure that my diet still does not give me all the nutrients I need to keep my skin clear, and that some aspects of my diet may still be making my face worse. So, after a lot of researching due to me being desperate and depressed over the whole subject, I have decided to religiously take vitamins, wash my face with sea salt, and remove dairy and gluten from my diet. I have spent a lot of money on these vitamins, but if they work, I'd be happy to have spent a lot more because my skin really does control my life and can ruin my day so easily. VITAMINS I have decided to take Pantothenic Acid, also known as vitamin B5. I will be taking the pill form and intend to start on 1500mg a day, potentially increasing the dosage if I need to (but not too much). Many people have cleared their acne using this vitamin as it helps to control oil production in the skin. I am aware however that high doses can have side effects, and some people have reported hair thinning and hair loss while doing this but usually due to higher doses for long periods of time, so I will just have to be careful and sensible. I am also taking Acetyl L-Carnitine to help my body absorb the B5 better. Vitamin D3 is another vitamin I have decided to take (3 x 400 I.U. tablets a day). This is the vitamin/hormone that our bodies produce when we are exposed to sunlight. I personally have great skin when I go on sunny holidays, it clears up 99 percent. So, I figured it must be something to do with the vitamin D3, as I'm pretty sure I am deficient while at home in the UK as we don't get a lot of sun and I spend a lot on time inside glued to a laptop (joys of being a student). I also wear makeup a lot less on holiday which definitely helps, and I am currently not wearing makeup very often (mostly because I'm in my last year of uni and therefore have no social life) and washing it off as soon as I get home if i do wear it. I am also taking Zinc combined with copper ( 1x 15mg zinc and 0.75mg copper combined tablet), which is important for skin health and has helped some people to reduce their oil production. Along with these vitamins, I will also be taking a general multivitamin like I usually do, as well as an Estroblock type supplement to help control my hormones. I will be spreading my doses throughout the day to avoid getting sick/vitamins competing with each other when they enter my body. SALT GLORIOUS SALT Ok so I love sea salt. I have recently been using this as a rinse/scrub/spray and it really does help my skin to heal up and reduces oil. Again, sunny holidays by the sea do wonders for my skin, so I am hoping that getting enough vitamin D3 and using sea salt on my skin will really help to clear me up like holidays do. It is important that sea salt is used, and not table salt. I have a spray bottle containing water with a generous amount of dissolved sea salt in it with a few drops of tea tree oil. I spray this over my face and shoulders before bed and it really helps reduce the amount of new blemishes in the morning. I do also wash my face in the shower in the morning and before bed at night with a face wash (before spraying the salt). I have used so many different cleansers but I currently like to use Freederm exfoliating wash as it is gentle and doesn't smell like a florist/perfume shop. GLUTEN AND DAIRY My final acne busting tactic is to cut out dairy and gluten form my diet. Gluten, dairy and soy are common food allergies that can cause some people to break out. In some cases people have cured their severe acne by cutting out these food groups. Currently, I do not eat a lot of gluten or dairy products, and no soy, so for me it won't be too hard to change my diet. I eat fat free natural yoghurt and have oats for breakfast, and that's about it so I will be stopping these foods just as an extra bit of help although I personally don't think these are a major contributing factor to my acne, but worth a try. I'm also going to cut down on my sugar intake. I will update this blog over the next few months of trying out this regime to let you all know if it is working and how I am feeling while doing it. I am really hoping this makes a change, because I am fed up and all the medicines have failed me. If this works for for me I hope it could help out others too, so here I go! REGIME (all tablets taken with a meal and water drunk throughout the day) - Week 1-2 Breakfast - 3 x vitamin d3 tablets, 1 x zinc/copper tablet Lunch - Multivitamin Dinner - 3 x B5 tablet, 1 x Acetyl L-Carnitine tablet (Not taking the estroblock yet) REGIME - Week 3 Breakfast - 3 x B5, 1 x Acetyl L-Carnitine, Lunch - Multivitamin, 1 x Zinc/copper, 3 x D3 Dinner - 3 x B5, 1 x Acetyl L-Carnitine, 2 x Estroblock, 1 x Magnesium WEEK ONE So it's been a week of the regime. I must admit I have not been very good at cutting out the dairy and gluten and had a cake binge yesterday (oops). However, there is no doubt that my skin has improved, in less than a week I saw and felt a difference. Oil production has most definitely decreased, which has led to a reduction of new pimples, and even new pimples are less inflamed and noticeable. No real side effects that I have noticed. I did however notice that the mornings after I had eaten junk (had a chocolate binge one evening and a cake binge on another) I had more pimples than the mornings where I had eaten healthy the day before. This could be coincidence or me just relating new pimples to the junk food, but I personally do believe that a healthy diet and avoiding high fat and high sugar foods will help me to reduce/clear my acne. Some of the more visible and red spots on my face were made worse by me picking. WEEK TWO Skin seemed a little more oily again, but I have read that oil does fluctuate a bit at the start of this treatment. I have decided to now take 3000mg of B5 a day and start the Estroblock. Skin overall is better than before, but I have made it look worse than it is by picking at it and therefore will hold off on posting pictures. Have also researched into Magnesium being important for absorbing the other vitamins I am taking, so have bought some Epsom Salts to bath in and will be taking a Magnesium supplement.
