  1. Well you can believe what you wish, but from the literature i've reviewed this hasn't turned out to be true or proven. Smart man or not its not "all" genetic. And in school this is hardly the case as nurses are taught when it comes to educating clients about their aliments such acne. The website has changed, the community has grown far to big, people have embraced the success of others to the extreme causing the crusade for a "cure" to continue instead of actually looking at living and managin
  2. I came across acne.org right around 2007. Granted, I was an occasional visitor, but I do recall the taurine, B-complex supplement and liver detoxing fads. I suspect that the alternative medicine and "natural is good" notions spread very quickly right after the acai berry and green tea fads during that time. That's when online advertising became more sophisticated and prevalent. Many of the "high-tech" and "revolutionary" advertising companies that are now ubiquitous either started 2007-2008 or
  3. To clarify, did you use any prescription topicals? On average, how long did you stay with your regimens? I have tried one prescription I do not remember the name, was a topical, but yeah I don't know... And on average I would try stuff for 2-3 months. I don't really want to keep using all these products on my face if they aren't really going to help it and just make it worse, especially chemicals and whatnot.... So, you've only tried one prescription and the rest OTC--am I getting that right

  5. It could help with some hyperpigmentation to some extent, but 2% hydroquinone, 4-5% niacinamide, 10% glycolic acid, and sunscreen is better. 4% hydroquinone is best for true hyperpigmentation (not red marks).

  9. It started around four days ago. At that time I thought it wasn't a big deal and chalked it up to internet connection problems. Today, though, it took about 2 hours to log on. Is this a browser or internet connection problem, or is there something happening here like maintenance mode/updates? Did anyone else have this problem?
  10. Is your skin rough as in bumpiness, dryness, or both?
  11. I really doubt you have a progesterone "deficiency", because progesterone can varies simply due to the stages of the menstrual cycle. Same goes with "estrogen dominance". What's up with the calculations on the first picture? Specifically, the "high androgens/cortisol" and "low androgens/cortisol" part?
  12. Neither natural or conventional methods can "cure' cancer. What you're suggesting disturbs me, you obviously have never dealt with cancer personally. You seem to buying into this 'U.S Style' type of paranoia where the "government" is deliberately hiding the cure for cancer and a cure can be found in nature. As a Canadian you should know better. People in the U.S only believe that because their healthcare system is a business which makes them distrust their system (it's either cough up thousands
  13. Essiac has no proof that it works. You're advocating unproven and potentially dangerous assumptions.
  14. Probably very little, as hormonal spikes are temporary and controlled and a lot of people with acne have hormones in the normal range. The DHT is probably local, AKA in the dermis itself.
  15. 1.5% to 2% salicylic acid in the morning, and ~10% glycolic acid at night. Both about a dime-sized amount for the face, including the jawline and a little on the nose. You must wear diligently wear sunscreen, no matter what exfoliant you use. SPF 30+ suffices for most people.
