  1. Your entire body regenerates itself. When skin is badly damaged, the body will repair it with scar tissue. The skin on your hands is perfect because there's no sebaceous glands (well, on the palms anyway) because your hands require grip to hold things (the same with the soles on your feet for walking). Imagine walking on an oil slick or trying to grip something with oily hands. Diet does play a role in acne. EDIT: Actually, the palms of the hands aren't perfect, they're very wr
  2. Just to be clear, are you also saying that taking a B complex alone without individual B Vitamins also causes you hair loss? With hair being made from EFA's, I heard that stress, amongst other things, impairs the ability of conversion of parent EFA's to metabolites and impair critical Delta-6 desaturization, thus potentially impairing growth of hair.
  3. ''Your taking excess B5 pantothenic acid leads to a biotin deficiencies since they compete for each other on absorption in the colonocytes.'' Would this also happen with the opposite, i.e excessive biotin leading to B5 deficiency also causing hair loss?
  4. 2 weeks doesn't sound long enough for the gut to heal but maybe it's because your body was too acidic that was causing you the acne? Did they test you for Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)? This bacteria increases acid production in the stomach and the acid can cause ulcers. Antacids such as Topzole and Omeprazole are prescribed to reduce the acid in the stomach so that the stomach and ulcers can heal. Antibiotics are often prescribed with the antacids to kill the H. pylori bacteria. In may c
  5. Are you sure it was that? 2 weeks doesn't sound like a lot. And I'm surprised your GP diagnosed you with ''Leaky Gut'' - They almost never do and most do not believe in such a thing. Maybe it was a coincidence? I have been prescribed Omeprazole for a couple of months before (to stop acid reflux because of an ulcer) and it did nothing for my acne.
  6. There was a change made that temporarily cleared her acne. She was using jojoba oil, so from your perspective, the fungus would feed off the oil. Which wouldn't make sense why she got clear.
  7. I believe that you already found the answer in your original post. Message me if you like.
  8. Hi, could you possibly send me a private message on what you typically eat so maybe I can help?
  9. Interestingly enough, some acne-prone sufferers and those who are not can break out from taking Biotin (Vitamin B7). ''Too much vitamin B12 may promote acne, according to a new study. The study found that, in the presence of vitamin B12, the skin bacteria that are commonly linked to acne start pumping out inflammatory molecules known to promote pimples. In the study, scientists investigated the differences between skin bacteria from people prone to acne and bacteria from pe
  10. Hi, Quit the regimen and your skin will most likely return to how it was before. It was obviously better before you started it. You're making it worse. Do whatever it was you were doing prior to the regimen and then take it from there. Good luck.
  11. Right on brother. How about the components that make up YOUR sebum? Lipid profile, oleic/linoleic acid etc. There's demodex mites to think about as well. malassezia furfur in regards to the Candida.
  12. Avoiding sugar is futile, as the body's primary fuel source is indeed sugar (carbon) - it's why we can also be incredibly addicted to the stuff. Especially the refined kind. And it's the refined sugar you want to steer clear of. Processed sugar is toxic to the human body. Sugar in its natural form, however, does not require insulin to be digested by the body, contrary to popular belief of that of diabetics. The other body's primary fuel source is oxygen (from the air we breath) mixed with carbon
  13. MSM is Sulphur. Sulphur is a fungal proliferant.
  14. Also take an anti-histamine daily and see how you react. I advise against it but if you're going down that route to prove a point...
