    Why masturbation causes acne?

    This shit doesn't go away lol. I know this is why i am having to squint to see the screen, but you say this is why i am riddled? Come on. You do realize it is very self defeating? Essentially, the main benefit to clear skin is more "action", if the only way to have clear skin means no release, which i take it means no rumpy pumpy either, then what is the point in having clear skin? In theory this could actually help reduce acne by helping to reduce the spread of the nasty genes t

    A Zinc-less Zinc Regimen for Adults: Draft 4

    Interesting. Seems like that Matt Stone guy sold out, which is a shame, i enjoyed that site, was a nice balance to some of the paleoextremism that seems to have taken over. I need to look through this later. Also a shame this guy stopped posting. I guess his regime works. This was some of the only stuff on this site that actually seemed to be going somewhere. Gut health / digestion - gut-brain axis etc is the future people. Malabsorption is where it's at baby.

    Is Accutane Worth It For My Acne.

    Very difficult question man.I am not sure there is even a right answer. But as the person above me has just said, i would be very careful with the whole mental thing. It could make things better, it could make things worse. I am not sure there is anyway to know so it could be a gamble either way. Basically do the possible benefits outway the risks? Are you getting pot odds? I regret not trying to get accutane years ago when i first started breaking out [and regret is a terrible

    Frustration

    I feel your pain brother. Let it out man. Let it out. I wish i had something to add or the magic answer, but i have been pissing around with this bs for too long myself. I have tried just about everything there is going and it all does nothing. Maybe the last thing i have left is pissing on myself, or maybe even drinking it. I have strong willpower but even i will not stoop that low. Stinking of vinegar is one thing........ There is nothing like sticking to one mad cap diet after anoth

    43 Y/o Male Needs Your Help!

    I have tried every diet thing going, apart from saturated fat maybe being a trigger i haven't really noticed any other correlation. I realize for some people it is simply a case of avoiding this or that, gluten or dairy etc, but maybe there are some of us where the "mental/psychological" factor is more significant than many consider? How many of us acne on here are "emotional" [emo pussies lol] ? I know personally i am a very anxious/easily stressed person [inside anyway], i may come acr

    Breakouts After Cabbage And Spinach

    I also think saturated fat may be one of the only things i have correlated as breaking me out. But it is very hard to go low saturated fat for me after i became phobic of pufas, after avoiding pufas for so long with no benefit maybe it is time for the realization that i am, in fact, a pufaphobe. I have some serious negative association when i see histamine intolerance and sulfur mentioned. I spent a while looking into all that histamine stuff but it was a nightmare, some stuff has histamine

    Not Eating, Skin Improves

    Personally when i am ill my acne worsens, but then many also report improving of acne whilst they are ill. Seems to be people either side. There are various possible reasons for this: Acne involves inflammation and the immune system, being ill might effect the immune system to be less or more involved with the process in your skin that causes acne [ in very simple terms]. As others have said, acne involves hormones, not eating will "lower" the hormones involved. [not really helpful o

    The Evolutionary Biology Behind Acne

    Great post people, hopefully it goes somewhere. If i had to say either way i would say there is no one fits all "answer" for acne and certainly no "one fits all" diet. Most people can eat wheat fine, many can eat dairy fine. Wheat is very bad for some people, dairy is very bad for some people. etc etc etc The dose makes the poison etc etc etc. Correlation doesn't equal causation etc etc etc. Also, as others have said, "healthy" and "natural" diets are relative. Just because a d

    No Sugar Buddies?

    This site never fails to entertain. Humans really ain't all that. It is my experience as a filthy disgusting sugar addict that complete abstinence is often the only answer. Much as with most addictions. Most of us do not have the will power of Saints, some may do, different strokes for different folks. I have tried a low carb, actually ketogenic diet before and after the adjustment period and completely removing all sweet tasting foods i found my sugar/sweet craving amazingly vanished. Bu

    The Autoimmune Component To Acne

    No doubt. Poor p-acnes gets a bad rap. The million dollar question is; what is causing the abnormal immune response in the first place? If acne is an autoimmune disorder then should we all be infecting ourselves with worms? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminthic_therapy
  11. The "healthier" i eat and live, the worse i look and feel. Well my skin anyway. When i was younger, more scrawny, ate all kinds of shit, drank far too much and took God knows what - generally misabused the crap out of my body, my skin was great. Health, diet and nutrition may be many things but they are simple. No matter what some people may think, there is still so much to learn. [One minute saturated fat is the devil, the next minute everyone is saying it was wrongly accused. Eat "healthy"
  12. Hey, is Helicobacter pylori actually linked to leaky gut? Also i don't think Leaky gut syndrome is even a recognized medical diagnosis. I am more guilty than most of messing around with all kinds of mad-cap ideas, but i think there is a difference between dealing with acne and a condition that is potentially life threatening. Saying that i understand what your talking about as i also have digestive problems as well as skin problems, as many others do, but that doesn't mean they are actual
  13. Hi, as per title: If you have taken Nizoral shampoo [ketoconazole] how long did it take to work before you started to notice an improvement with your acne? Did you have an initial breakout? Do you think an initial breakout would be possible from Nizoral considering what ever the mechanisms are that help with acne etc. Cheers.

    Update

    Skin has been pretty much the same. Will be good for a while then get shit again. Endless repetitive pattern. Last few months i tried fish [cod liver] oil and Vitamin D, i've never trusted the fish oil but i thought i'd try anyway, it certainly didn't help and if anything my skin was as bad as ever with a few nasty breakouts so i just stopped. My sleep and digestion has been shit recently so hard to blame any food in particular really. One thing to note is i have had a few of the na
  15. I started taking Nizoral shampoo (active ingredient ketoconazole) a couple of weeks ago. I think around the 22nd of October. So it's been a couple of weeks now. I think it's an anti-fungal and anti-dandruff shampoo and i have been using it on my face and scalp after a shower. I remember seeing it being mentioned as somehow working for acne as well, i think it is supposed to be a DHT inhibitor, or something like that, it can reduce sebum production maybe. I have never bothered with it in the
