  1. IMPORTANT: I no longer recommend Betaine Hydrochloride supplements. While I do believe they help people and they helped me as well, I think they are a short-term solution. The long-term solution to low stomach acid is to improve your overall health. One of the best things you can do is ingest natural sources of calcium such as Raw Organic Dairy and Canned Fish with Bones. Also get good sleep and reduce your stress. These were the most important changes I made to improve my stomach acid productio
  2. The blockers of the channel of calcium,like Topiramate,they use the antagonists of calcium to diminish synthesis of the collagen. They are able to induce changes in the expression of gene of fibroblast. They block the cellular roads of the communication that are essential regular the behavior of fibroblast. This method is useful in the treatment of established scars. It seems that in some people it works, vanishing the excess of colagen of the scars and thus to leave cells them they can migrat
  3. 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
  4. Combinations of what I've learned from a few sources, actually. Many of them were close, but not quite. The following has worked completely for myself, my brother, and a few co workers. Most of this information was recently validated by the book " The Acne Cure" (which basically just reiterates thigns I already knew, but it was still probably worth $21.95 for a few of the things it recommends. Don't buy it, though, just read this post ;-)). Anyways: Morning: Shower normally, use a
  5. is thier any that would help acne maybe or maybee even calcium? (milk)
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I am using 3 cleansing products from REPECHAGE. They are quite expensive like $25-35 each bottle. 1. Repechage Hydra refine-One-minute clarifying mask (for normal to oily skin). $26.00 Main ingredients: Seaweed (oil controlling marine seaweed), Lily of the Valley (fights blemish causing bacteria), Lemongrass (astringent, purifies and refreshes), cucumber (cools, heals and soothes).

  9. 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
  10. I've currently given Dan's regimen a rest and I just use BP when I need to. For the full month of April my diet will be dairy free and I'll see how that works out. It has not been to hard to restrict myself cause I'm in the process of shedding my hibernation fat from the winter, so I'm already eating very healthy. My biggest problem is with hidden dairy, there's so many different lists of hidden dairy on the internet I don't know who's right. I've even given up my vitamins cause they say Cal
  11. Iodine is the main cause of acne and blocked pore. I know people have beaten it into you that diet dosent matter well....it does and this isnt bull.It has been proven quite a bit but i think the milk people kept it under raps or somethin. Foods you should avoid as much as possible are Milk ,Iodised salt, Fish and some types of bread and potatoes and some beans. do a bit of surfing to find out exactly what to avoid. Mainly fish milk and vitamin supplements (they have iodine in them). Find a
  12. I've been seeing a lot of posts and thread responses lately from people who read about the magic that is the hormone D3 and what it could and should be doing for their skin, but find that either they were never able to achieve the desired results from the start, or found their skin was no longer responding as positively to it as it once did. Most of them will either keep upping their dosage and find themselves more and more frustrated and confused that they aren't seeing results, or quit taking

  14. Hi, I just purchased these: http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/browse/sku_detail.jsp?id=SL-1058#.Uaf4RaWz6lY as I cut dairy out of my diet and needed a calcium supplement. I was wondering would these affect my acne at all, whether it be positively or negatively? Thanks!
  15. In the beginning of January, I purchased Rebuilt Mass Gainer, a mass gainer containing the following ingredients: Calories 850.00 Calories from Fat 90.00 Total Fat 10.00 g 15% Saturated Fat 5.00 g 25% Cholesterol 80.00 mg 27% Sodium 860.00 mg 36% Total Carbohydrate 130.00 g 43% Dietary Fiber 4.00 g 16% Calcium 500.00 mg 50% Sugars 10.00 g Protein 60.00 g 0% Potassium 500.00 mg 14% Advanced Creatine Complex 10.00 g ** Creatine HC
  16. 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
  17. Hi, Ghost here. I've been stalking these boards for a while now reading everyone's logs and have decided to do my own. Let me tell you a little about myself; I'm 18 years old, now while I've suffered from the occasional zit or pimple since I was 12, I have never had more than one at a time. Then VOILA! a couple of months ago I started breaking out pretty badly. ((No, I haven't changed my diet, or any other part of my lifestyle)) The only thing I can figure is that it is from stress
  18. 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
  19. Ok so about a week ago I finally made my way over to a certified raw organic dairy farm near me. Yeah I know I'm lucky to have one near me, these places are hard to find. Picked me up a gallon of goat milk to experiment, and some fudge for my mom because she's a die hard fudge fan lol. Had my kefir grains that I ordered off Amazon. Did a thorough cleaning of all my supplies, gallon glass milk jug, wooden spoon, cheese cloth. Poured the milk into the jug, added the grains, stirred, and then
  20. 1. full fat dairy products in this order: yogurt, cheese, sour cream. why: calcium and phosphorous source. calcium supplements are not a replacement for milk. and also the ratio of saturated to mono/polyunsaturated, is very preferable to mammals, including humans. fermented means that the lactose content has been reduced, bacteria love lactose, and people have problems with lactose in general, so this helps create a better bacterial flora in the intestine, when you limit lactose. the island of
  21. read somewhere here that isotretinoin elevated the level of calcium in body, i was taking a vitamin d3 cap that comes with calcium as its another ingredient but have stopped after reading that topic. right now i have not yet found vitamin d3 alone in a cap ,but just to reconfirm it -is it true that i shouldnt take calcium after or on accutane?
  22. 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
  23. Ok, so here is my story. When I was about 12 I started getting very light acne that became a bit more moderate as I grew older. I started birth control when I was about 14 or 15, and it cleared my face completely, with the occasional hormonal outbreak each month. Then I stopped taking the bc (OTC Lo, by the way) when I was 20, and my face was okay until about 8 months later when it literally exploded in painful, cystic acne all over my face. I've been assuming that this is a hormonal reaction to
  24. the story so far the last time I had a log here was in 2008, and my skin was far worse with inflammed spots, uneven skin tone and just a whole lotta nastiness. I started on finacea which improved the whole situation and I gradually drifted away from acne.org fast forward a couple of years, and I've stopped finacea (whilst it was fabulous, the side effects of dryness were negating any of the reduction in scarring/acne) and I've been up + down with various treatments, finally settling on avene di
  25. 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
