  1. I don't think mine was caused by candida, but I did go on a candida cleanse before my acne cleared up, so maybe. I took ACV, Green Vibrance (extremely overpriced green drink,) Garlic supplements, chlorella and spirulina. As for foods, the normal health stuff like chicken, tuna, meats, etc. Even processed, canned kinds for convenience. Avoided breads and grains and some dairy. I can't imagine gargling with vinegar. Props to you for that.
  2. Your body produces its own cure for acne, but if you're poisoning the body with dairy, gluten, fast food, or some other trigger, how can you expect it to administer? It's not hard to avoid these triggers. Follow the 80/20 rule: Be good to your body 80% of the time, and then do and eat whatever the heck you want the other 20%. So go healthy 5 days a week, and be bad 2 days a week. so are you telling me if i stay away from those trigger food for awhile, my body will develop a cure? have it happen
  3. Just curious, do your pick or pop your whiteheads with a needle or anything? If you do, don't do it. When you first see that you have a whitehead, let it stay there all day, and then go to bed at night. Then, pop it in the morning. The whiteness that you extract will come out more as a hard, seed-like extraction, rather than gross, liquid puss. That seed is what you want to get out, but it wont come out to the surface if you're popping your whitehead constantly. Once you get that seed out the pi
  4. I didn't read all the posts, but I recommend getting rid of the multivitamin and zinc. However, I especially recommend cutting down on the fruits. I see that fruits are now on your Avoid list, so that's good. Nuts are a trigger food in a lot of people. Try going without nuts or peanutbutter for a week if you havent tried it already. Fruits and nuts are pretty much the only thing I dont like about your diet. Everything else looks really good. Just make sure your coconut and olive oil are orga
  5. That is waaaaay too much Vitamin A. You can get toxic levels of Vitamin A easily because Vitamin A is fat soluble and gets stored in your fatty tissue's unlike water soluble vitamins that gets flushed out. I would only stay at 20,000 IU daily of vitamin A. Also, there are many vitamins that are good for acne. Taking a single vitamin doesn't really make sense since your body needs 90 essential vitamins and minerals. I'm aware, thanks though. Problems stemming from 25,000 IU a day are infrequent
  6. Suck it up and drink it, bro. Or, uhh, sista. It tastes like crap (you may eventually like it) but you're way less likely to be scammed if you get the real liquid organic stuff. You never know whats really been done to those capsules.
  7. Actually several doctors do tell people about the diet and acne connection. Just not your run of the mill, mediocre doctors. Here's a list of several, mostly mainstream doctors: http://www.acne.org/...30#entry2817730 That list includes an extremely important and famous cardiologist, Dr Oz, a few major dermatologists, and fitness trainer Jillian Michaels who wrote a book on hormones and metabolism. Huh. I never realized. I had heard Doctor Oz mentioned it, but figured he got a free pass since
  8. I think I made a topic on this once. I tried the caveman regimen and it did wonders for my face. I think it actually helped my acne go away. I now use a lactic acid chemical peel every 4 days or so for the leftover scars, so Im technically not on the caveman regimen, however I now only wash with water. I believe the other poster got it wrong though, I really doubt dead skin build-up is going to clog your pores. Cavemen didn't wash their faces. They had tons of dead skin on their faces, so why
  9. Now Foods is a great brand, depending on what you get. What is your vitamin D derived from? By that I mean, what type of D does it say on the back? The one I use is a natural source derived from Lanolin (sheeps wool.) It's also Vitamin D3, which is more bio-available. I'd recommend getting rid of the multivitamin. They're crap. Most are filled with laboratory-made vitamins that our body don't recognize. Eat some broccoli. I take this for my acne: http://www.amazon.co...37836298&sr=8-8

  11. The only vitamin I recommend for acne is this one: http://www.amazon.co...37836298&sr=8-8 The vitamin A has to be derived from a natural source such as fish liver oil, like the one I just linked. None of that synthetic laboratory crap, which does a lot of harm and very little good for our bodies. Our bodies didn't evolve with that crap. It doesn't know what to do with it. Also, if you take it, don't exceed more than 50,000 IU a day, please. I take as much as I like (to an extent) because I
  12. Thanks a lot for the advice!! The video "what is gluten sensitivity" is a real eye-opener for me. I love that video. it gives such clear information. Anyway, I plan to start drinking ACV, starting from tmrw. All of this gluten-sensitivity thing is entirely new to me. I've been thinking that it was dairy product that usually break me out but now i gotta think about the gluten thing too. I live in a country where rice is the stable food, not bread, so, I wonder whether rice has gluten in it?? oh w
  13. You also have to keep in mind that if a doctor or dermatologist or whatnot goes forth and DOES say that diet causes acne, they could be found guilty of malpractice, since it's not commonplace to give that kind of advice yet. Same thing goes for masturbation. Everyone says it's good for you, but I'm a firm believer that it causes tons of problems that aren't limited to acne. We'll get there though. No worries. When you say you "have it under control," what do you mean exactly? Do you still ge
  14. I personally don't believe in "purging" but I do advise you to stick with it. The reason it's helping your face is most likely due to the acidity burning away at the top layer of your skin. I take it orally for reasons mention in another topic I made which can be found here: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/topic/315751-is-your-acne-caused-by-leaky-gut-syndrome-a-simple-breakdown-of-the-connection/ The only topical treatment I use is a 50% Lactic Acid peel, which has similar effects t
  15. Im sure you know this already, but organic apple cider vinegar is very inexpensive and has a host of valuable probiotics that may assist in restoring your gut flora. I can drink it straight out of the bottle, but Im not sure how it would effect any inflammation you might have in your gut so you'd probably want to heavily dilute it. And remember to rinse your mouth out with water when you've finished drinking so the acidity doesn't harm your teeth.
