  1. This sounds great if it works for you BUT please please please be careful with chromium especially so much. i read on another thread to try zinc and chromium. i must say that combo seemed to be helping my moderate/severe cystic acne a little bit and it may have steadily gotten even better but I had to STOP the chromium. After downing just 200 mcg one a day for 5 - 7 days (i cant remember it was about a month ago) I started waking up in the middle of the night with a slight muscle spasm which i i

  5. For all of you out there that have had success with tetracycline (particularly Adoxa) for acne, but then grew immune to its effects and relapsed with an even more explosive form of acne I want to hear from you all. Please give us some details, like what type of breakouts you were having that caused you to opt for antibiotics, what your ethnicity and skin type were (oily etc, describe the texture, tone), how old you were when the acne began and when you started the antibiotics and whether or not
  6. I'm not sure digestive enzymes are such a great idea unless you have a condition that requires them, or for instance if you eat a food that your digestive system finds hard to process (exp I am senstive to dairy and may take one if I slip up and have dairy on occassion). Besides this its more important to get your body doing that disgestion itself, and in the long run this may affect your acne more positively. Try drinking Chlorofresh Liquid Chlorophyll (mint flavored in the AM with some fresh
  7. Database Thanks for all the info its been really eye opening. Im on the path to starting your regimen I just have a few ?'s. I know for a fact that I am Vitamin D dificient as I recently had some blood work done. You've mentioned that Vitamin D is crucial in the absorption of Zinc so I am starting the zinc 50 mg X 2, b complex X 2 and the vit D X 2. Where in your regimen should I include the vitamin D (what time of day and with what other supps? With or without food? How many times a day? How
  8. I dont know i think it depends for everyone. ultimately i have to agree that topicals arent the answer, we werent meant to rub chemicals and gunk all over our faces, heck most ppl around the world dont and they have great skin. However complications from our western way of living, etc which causes issues like hormone imbalances and the like, are not going to be helped by JUST washing with water. I tried to water only thing for about a month and can tell you that my face looked atrocious. i have
  9. not sure about the clindagel, but my acne was completely gone (old scars and old pimples too) after about two weeks on adoxa. however.. adoxa is a double edged sword... it can maintain clear skin for upwards to a year or longer. But it WILL wear off, and when it does you will have quite possibly the worse acne of your entire life. IF your going to continue the adoxa work on getting to the root cause of your acne while its clearing you and fix THAT, in this way when the adoxa wears off your acne
  10. Not washing your face is really not a bad idea.. contrary to what some here believe. My family covers the range of skin from perfect flawless skin all the way through puberty, to horrendous cystic acne that begins as young as age ten. I have sat back and observed and noticed that my cousins with clear skin dont use face washes. All they do is splash their face is water - what my grandmother made us all do as kids - and they have remained clear with few to NO breakouts. Those of us who have my gr
