  1. I have had acne for about 10 years now. A lot of my way of life as revolved around acne. I have tried everything and nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any idea what I could try??? My daily diet: Glass of water when waking. Museli and yoghurt for breakfast. Green Tea Snacks consisting of fruit, sunflower seeds and almonds. Tuna on RYE bread for lunch. Chicken or fish with steamed vegetables for dinner. I only drink water and green tea. I dont eat take away. I dont smoke. I exercise at l
  2. If I were to get a powder of 91.5% Pantothenic Acid and 8.5% Calcium would it still have all the benefits of Pantothenic Acid? It said on the site the substance was for acne. You can get 1 kilogram of it for $28 or 1000mg/400cap for $40! Also, has anyone used the Powder form of B5 and actually had results? Thanks Guys
  3. I haven't drank milk and have avoided dairy products for about 6 months now. Am I missing out on anything that might help improve my face, and if so, what should I try eating/drinking?
  4. Hey guys....this is the first time I've posted here but i'm just so happy with the success of my Acne Cure Plan that i just HAD to share it with other people... Firstly, my name's Vanessa, I'm 18 and i live in Australia. My acne started in year 9 and continued until the end of year 12 until i went on this amazing plan and got rid of it for good I know that some of you have heard of Dr Dubrow and his book, "The Acne Cure". I was heaps skeptical when i first read it but i was desperate and so
  5. is thier any that would help acne maybe or maybee even calcium? (milk)
  6. i just went to a new derm today and he said he would not prescribe accutane for me since i've been on it before. he said that if you are on accutane for a prolonged period of time you could get Hepatitis, lose bone calcium, get worse eyesight...etc. i'm so frustrated i want to cry. i get these red marks that just won't go away and every time i get a new pimple it leaves another red mark and over time it just compounds to the point that i look like a freakin disaster!!! is there anything
  7. Hey all, Ive been on accutane since 4 months now. And im practically all clear. Wat i wanted to ask was that since around 6 months ago ... after reading that milk causes cysts and all ... ive become paranoid about drinking milk. And i think ive only drank around 2-3 glasses in 6 months. Hence i dont get alot of calcium. I went to the dentist a few days ago and had to have 9 cavities filled and one tooth taken out. Damn i need calcium. Any advice where i can get calcium etc? I
  8. So, who here actually follows the current Official Food Pyramid http://www.annecollins.com/nutrition/balanced-diet.htm ? The Vegetarian Food Pyramid http://freedietlinks.com/foodpyramid.htm ? Or the Vegan Food Pyramid http://www.fitnessandfreebies.com/fitness/...s/veganfgp.html or http://www.nutrispeak.com/veganpyramid.htm I certainly don't, I've always eaten what I wanted because I've always been thin. However, I definately no longer follow their reccommendation of eating 11 servi
  9. just a word about taking so many chalky pills. There is some documented evidence that calcium supps can cause constipation, i reason the same could be true for any supp. Liquid vitamins may be ok, but any chalky tablets i think will be something to weed out, liquid is preferable and the problem may be with any vitamins with minerals which are bulky. Anything that messes with the mechanics of the intestine is really not good, but of course getting your vitamins are important, but not when at t
  10. Hey everyone, I really appreciate any help or suggestions! I've been using BP for awhile now...inconsistently, but still using it on a regular basis. It is effective against my acne, but it also dries me out like crazy and doesn't give me an appealing facial appearance (IMO). I'm gearing up for a complete drop of BP in my acne fighting regimen (which scares me) and starting to look at natural possibilities. I've been working out consistently the last two months, started eating righ
  11. So was doing several researches lately and found out on an acne site that theres a perhaps a better alternate to accutane, its called Vilentae.. And no it seems like it changed its ingredient. It uses (d-Calcium pantothenate) which creates co enzyme that breaks down sebum fat before its released. During puberty, the enzyme is used up for sexual hormones. So people are defficient in this sort of oil as it says. So it doesn't dry out the sebum and it just provides more enzyme to reduce oilines

    My success with Adult Acne

    I have been struggling with adult acne for the last 10 years. It has been moderate to severe including whiteheads, blackheads, and cystic acne. I have tried ProActive, ZenMed, Retin-A, Microderm Abrasion, Tetracycline, MyChelle, Neutrogena Acne Treatments, etc. I have also tried different vitamins, herbal supplements, etc. I found that being on a general Multi-Vitamin was helpful and of course the Tetracycline worked great for 2 years and then I became immune to it and the acne returned. I
  14. I noticed today that my bathroom sink faucet had a build up of calcium, lime, and maybe rust. So does the water that passes through the faucet have any different effect on my skin when I wash and rinse? Either way, are there ways to remove the buildup other than CLR.
  15. I've finally decided to go on a strict diet and take everything out of my diet that can possibly cause acne. I will also be using LED blue +red lights My acne has not improved from topical treatments I hope to maintain my current weight or gain more weight I will try diet for 3 months and if no improvement I will start adding foods back I will NOT be eating any of the following: Dairy-hormones? Gluten- ? high glycemic carbs-blood sugar regulation? salt even no sea salt- to limit water rete
  16. Hey guys!! If you can't be bothered reading my long rant; I want help with grocery shopping. If you like reading rants, here we go!! I'm moving out of home for the first time in a few days From my small humble country home to the big city! Should be exciting! Anyway, I have always found it hard to follow a healthy eating plan living at home because a) I get bored a lot at home b) sugary junk food is always there c) I like eating sugar when I'm bored So, since I now have to pay for my own
  17. Ok i have been on a GF/dairy free diet last couple of weeks and it was working out great, no new pimples or anything, skin was becoming less oily and clearing up except for a few on my lower neck but thats just always been from shaving i believe and they always heal on their own within 3 or 4 days. Anyway i had been eating organic meats (fish, steak, chicken breasts) grilled on the good ole foreman grill, with brown rice, frozen vegetables and eating nuts,seeds,and rasins throughout the day to
  18. I have recently added Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Zinc to my daily vitamin pile. Wondering what others are good. Thinking about adding Spirulina for overall health benefits. Also Sam-E because I'm coming off of anxiety meds and am a little irritable... I already take the following: Multivitamin Fish oil Vitamin B-12 Vitamin C Vitamin E Probiotics L-Lysine Calcium
  19. I'm looking for a really good multivitamin. Preferably either a softgel or liquid form for good absorption. Right now I'm taking 3 omega 3 pills a day, 4 vitamin d3 pills a day, 3 magensium, and I'm not really getting any calcium (which really concerns me). I'd like to have a GOOD quality multivitamin that will give me a good base of vitamins like vitamin A, K12, calcium, zinc, magneisum, C vitamin, B vitamins, for days where I dont get ALL my veggies in there, but that also contains at least 2

    another dairy issue

    it is believed by many people on this site that dairy affects their acne to some degree. i tend to agree with this, but cutting out dairy to try and improve acne presents a few problems, a new one i have considered, is that cheese is a decent source of vitamin k2, and by reducing cheese intake, you will reduce a good source of vitamin k2. some older issues with cutting out dairy i have posted about before are b12 and of calcium. dairy is a decent source of b12, and from my experience it is the

  22. I just purchased a new protein shake that isn't available in any stores and I purchased it after reading the ingredients carefully. I am here asking for some input on how everyone thinks it will affect my acne. Over the last year, I've reduced my acne around 70% due to just eating healthier. In the process, I've lost a bit of weight so because I workout reguarly I'm looking to put that weight back on. Below is a link and the ingredients to the product I bought: can anyone give me their input on
  23. ok, so Im taking 50 mg of zinc picolinate a day, is that too much? Im sure I dont absorb the full 50 mg but still.....Im not taking a copper supplement, I should probably take one right? Im reading this one website and it says to take 1 mg of copper per 10 mg of zinc, so than I should take 5 mg of copper? But then it says not to go over 3 mg of copper or 30 mg of zinc....Im confused. Also, it says zinc hinders the absorption of calcium, should I be taking that as well? I was for awhile but I rei
  24. Since I dont wanna mess up other topics I decided to create my own regarding this subject. Im in the progress of cutting out Tetracycline, since I really think im immune to it, and it doesnt work anyways. So I realized that I might get myself some probiotics, so I can get the good bacterias back. I want to know which kind of Probiotic I should start taking to make everything function in the right way again. Im down at 250mg Tetracycline, and im even taking Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc before s
