Acne Bacteria Causing Back Pain

1 post in this topic

I found out I have 3 herniated dislocated discs that have impacted my nervous system. I was trying to find out if that can cause acne, but I read some articles that claim that it is acne bacteria that actually cause back pain, not vice versa. Not to say that all back pain is caused by acne bacteria, but that it is one possibility for acne prone individuals and people who have bacterial infections. Apparently, acne bacteria invade spinal discs and can cause infections that are treated with antibiotics.

What to you think? Does that seem like a plausible theory? If I wanted to try an anti-bacterial treatment without antibiotics, do you think that could work? The only natural alternative to antibiotics I currently own is ViraStop, but if my discs are indeed infected, would these enzymes be strong enough to fight it?

I was also wondering if you think that dislocated discs can increase inflammation in the body, and if so, what's the fastest way to reduce inflammation? My diet has been anti inflammatory for a long time now, and am taking vitamin C to fight off infections....not sure what else I could do at this point.

Current regimen: garlic supplements  & turmeric [as needed, for antioxidants, both are AMAZING for skin], Enzymedica gluten blocker/ digestive enzymes [as needed], nicadan [the only vitamin presciption I take -1/2 per day works well], DIM (needed), inositol (very rarely nowadays - no longer needed as my PCOS is balanced). Also trying herbs for adrenal fatigue. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using BioClin and other products), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency & lactic acid peel facials...
