  1. I found some info on alternatives to Spironolactone on http://www.acne-wise.com/sebum.htm which you may want to try. Interesting info on flavonoids. Flavonoids act as powerful antioxidants, protecting against oxidative and free radical damage. Recently, it was shown that apigenin, a natural flavone found in chamomile, olive leaves, and other plant sources, has potent progestational activity and can therefore help reduce sebum production. Good sources of flavonoids include all citrus fruits,
  2. Loads of ways on http://www.acne-wise.com/sebum.htm Extracts Acne and Protein intake. Testosterone is converted to a more potent form called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called 5 alpha reductase. Acne patients show an increase activity of this enzyme resulting in more potent androgens to cause more oil production and clogging of pores. By maintaining a higher intake of protein in relation to carbohydrates you reduce the activity of 5 alpha reductase and thus the formation of the more
  3. I not sure if it is safe to take all these pills targeted specifically for controlling hormones in women. But I found loads of interesting information on http://www.acne-wise.com/sebum.htm on different ways to balance testosterone and reduce sebum production. Extracts: Diet Testosterone is converted to a more potent form called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called 5 alpha reductase.

  4. What do you think is a scam? JimboJam has posted the information here for free, just eat apples and water all day for three days. Plus I have personally tried it and it definately improved my skin, just not to the point where I was happy. Nevertheless I do believe it may work for other people on this forum.
  5. I think it is a great idea and if it does not work the worst outcome is that you have eaten healthy food. To answer your question if fatty meat can aggravate acne, I found this on www.acne-wise.com. Hope it helps Acne and Protein Intake Testosterone is converted to a more potent form called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called 5 alpha reductase.

  6. Yeah I had similar results. My skin looked clearer and cleaner but it was not 100% clear. A week after the fast I was back to where I started. However I do recommend people trying it. In 3 days there is a definate improvement, just not enough to clear acne for good.
  7. Nice info. I currently use neem on my face and I am seeing good results so might as well try it internally too. Cheers
  8. I only used dove for a couple of months and it seemed to improve my skin more than other topical agents. I recommend trying it because it did improve my skin, but did not clear my skin completely or to the point that I felt I had eliminated acne, so I eventually ended up trying something different. But it could work for you!
  9. When I went to spain I broke the leaves of the plant and apply the sap to my skin. Seems to help a little but could only use it for the two weeks while I was on holiday. ( I have now started using a neem which is another popular Ayurvedic herb with similar properties.) I read in a health magazine that the best form of aloe vera is pure gel, with its soothing and antibacterial constituents that reduce inflammation and speed the healing of spots, acne, eczema, burns and cuts. I doubt it will ca
  10. By the sound of it "doubletake" you are desperately in need of a girlfriend.
  11. Where did you order it from? Never heard of it before and it sounds quite interesting.
  12. I have been applying head and shoulders to my back for two weeks now and I am almost clear. Just wanted to say that I never left a film on all day. I just wash my hair with it (dont see why I have to use a different shampoo) and then wash my back with it. Thanks for all your help everyone in recommending H&S.
  13. Thanks for your replies. Do these side-effects only occur when you are taking a high dosage? If so, what is a safe amount to consume of Spiro?
  14. What do you mean "the expense of their manhood". I found loads of information on http://www.acne-wise.com/sebum.htm about natural alternatives similar to Vitex and Spironolactone such as green tea and saw palmetto. I want to try antiandrogen supplements because they seem to work similarly to accutane on the body (reducing sebum production). However what is the worst possible side effect from taking them?
