  1. I have longed for this moment since I was 13. I have found my cure. And it’s been such a long road. A road that began when I had my first breakout on my forehead when I was 13 – a breakout that spread to cover most of my T-zone for the next 14 years. I don’t think there was a day that I didn’t think about my face. I don’t think there was a day. Years of endless, endless frustration, and feelings of helplessness. And then I entered into the world of doctors ââ‚

  3. First, I would like everyone to know that I do not work for any of the companies I may mention in this post. I am in no way shape or form tied to any of these products and I’m not receiving any compensation for this post. My only purpose is to explain my situation in hopes that others will benefit. With that said, I am a 34y/o male who has suffered from acne since I was a teen. Problem is my skin is so oily. I can wash my face and within 30 minuets my skin will shine from excess oil.
  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. Can I take chromium and zinc at the same time? Or do they have the same receptors in the body. Like Copper and Zinc. So no Chromium will be absorbed because they compete about the same receptors. ?????? Tanx!
  6. Hi, any feedback on the following (to those who have tried it?) 1. Parasitic cleanse 2. Vitamin D 3. Seabuckthorn oil 4. Zinc + Chromium So, I've done much of my research, and it seems that these 3 "solutions" seem to have the most potential. I'm currently contemplating to just get ahead with Accutane, but I am fearful of the negative side effects, and have been down the holistic route previously. What I've tried previously: 1. Raw Food Diet (9 months NO cheating) - Lost so much weight... an
  7. What up kids. So I'm really thinking about going on a second round of Accutane. I took my first round from late September to late January (4 months) for moderate to severe cystic acne. Gross. I forgot what the dosage was. I just know I was taking two pills a day. So it was at least 40 mg, but probably more. It may have been 60 mg a day? Anyways, it worked wonders and my face stayed clear from late January up until August. Right before I left for college. Then it started to slowly creep back. I

  11. *If you don't want to read the story, please skip below to my current regimen to comment : ) Hey guys I finally made an account to see if any of you can help me out. I visited the site for over a year, mainly to check on product reviews. So heres my story. My dad and uncle (moms side) both had bad skin, so hereditary issues may play in. I first developed acne around my chin around 7th/8th grade. Typical young kid, picking at it all the time, didn't really do much to stop it (just over the c
  12. I'm moving across country so I bought like 6 months worth of vitamins because I get a pretty awesome discount at the health food store I work at, I bought these: Cal/mag vitamin D zinc chromium cod liver oil (Im guessing I should take these with me on the plane as they can get rancid easy?) but do you think the rest will be fine in the car? Its being shipped on the back of a truck so the AC wont be on. And I wont get to where its being shipped for a week or so. Thanks!
  13. Hi, sorry to make a whole thread for this but I couldn't find anywhere else to post it. This is my supplement routine, I'm just wondering if I'm doing it properly... taking the correct supplements with and without food, and at the right time between meals, etc. Or if some are better taken in the morning vs. night or vice versa. Let me know if there's anything I could change and why. Wake up, take Chromium GTF (with Vanadium) Drink ACV with distilled water -30 minutes- Eat breakfast/snac
  14. First of all im not saying this will work 100% for everyone but for some im sure it will make a drastic diffeence. The problem is most people dont have a plan to conquer acne and they dont know where to start. Some may start diets but then they always cheat because they dont feel like cooking or whatever. Here is a easy, cheap plan to follow that should prevent new pimples from forming. Any grocery store should carry wild alaskan canned red salmon, the canned form of salmon not tuna is just as

  17. i ask knowledgable and interested holistic minded people with the likes of sj or denise etc to provide their insights about this edit- hi carb or hi grain diet is NOT the cause but IT CAN TRIGGR AND WORSEN ACNE.

    My Holistic Log (New Brigade)

    OK. So I'm starting a holistic log, but I need to start by saying that I have been virtually grain, lectin, and dairy free for almost two months and I still have pimples. In fact, my skin is every bit as bad (maybe worse?) as it was when I was on topical BP following the regimen, which isn't that bad but I have lots of hyperpigmentation and several ugly pimples on my face. Always. My chest usually has one or two pustules on it and tons of blackheads but it mostly looks bad because I have int

  22. 1. Avoid the sun. Overexposure to the sun can worsen acne. 2. Use only hypoallergenic, oil-free cosmetics. Use cosmetics sparingly. 3. Eliminate foods that are high in fat, hormones, and iodine. 4. Oral and topical antibiotics help prevent new blemishes by killing bacteria and breaking down sebum into FFA. Prescription-strength antibiotics must be obtained from a physician. However, lesser strengths are available as over-the-counter preparations from any pharmacy. 5. Chromium can improve

    Vitamins for acne

    My name is chris Ive had mild acne for most of my teenage life. I started reading up on diffrent methods for cures and found the vitamin c method, and i feel like i might be vitamin defficient because of my lifestyle and eating habits. i did some more research through google and stumbled upon some other supplements that are supposed do help the combat against acne. In particular i found this site (http://www.vitamins-nutrition.org/vitamins/vitamins-acne.html) and i decided i am going to follow
  24. So I have been trying like every single vitamin out there for the past year or so. B5 worked moderately well but I couldn't handle the side effects. I've been using the Vitamin A+ skin solution from thevitamincure.com every night for 2 and a half months now and I was getting frustrated with it because it just didn't seem to be working very well. Actually, it worked great on my cheeks and chin, but my forehead kept breaking out like it never had before. Then I figured it out. It was my shampoo. I

    I heard it's good for acne to take chromium as a supplement. I've looked through past threads and some posts mention about it allowing you to eat a bit of sugar due to increasing insulin resistance. Could someone explain how chromium supplements help acne please? Thanks
