  1. 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
  2. I have heard a lot of Negative remarks about the St. Ives Scrub,so I will tell you my story. I am 18, and started getting very few pimples when I was about 16. They would come in the early winter, and subside in the early spring, each year. This past November though, my face exploded, causing huge flaming red pimples all over my face. I Dan's regimen, but all it did was make my face really red. Then I tried St. Ives scrub, and the results have been astonishing. RIght now, I have about 3
  3. Hello I dont exactly know what I am hoping to get out of this post.. I guess im just living in the hope that someone knows the answer to how my skin condition can improve. (I am male by the way) Products Ive previously used: Anti-Biotics: Tetracyclin Arco 250mg, Tetracyclin Actavis 250mg, Ery-max erytromycin 250mg Creams: Dalacin clindamycin, Differin gel Moisturizer: Neutrogena oil free moisture for sensitive skin Products I currently use: Vitamins every morning: Multivitamin, B-vi
  4. I first started getting pretty bad back and shoulder acne when I was 19 roughly two years ago. It made me extremely self-conscious and really put a damper on my summers. I tried just about every possible remedy; Head and Shoulders, Apple cider vinegar, and even had some lotions/foams prescribed to me by a few dermatologists. Nothing worked. I finally found a dermatologist in my area who offered a Clearlight treatment that claimed it would clear about 60% of the problem areas with a wave freq
  5. (Per day) Iron - 14mg Vitamin D - 25µg Omega 3 fish oil - 600mg Zinc - 20mg Multivitamin - (Vit A 800µg, Vit D 5µg, Vit E 10mg, Vit C, 60mg, B1 1.4mg, B2 1.6mg, Niacin 18mg, Folic Acid 200µg, B12 1µg, Pantothenic 6mg)
  7. I have never posted here, but I've viewed these boards for years. I had to post because I completely resolved my acne by accident. I'm a 29 year old woman. I've struggled with cystic acne since my teens. I used to get it all over my face. I took Accutane in my teens (big mistake, I believe) and it resolved it for a while, but it came back just on my chin and jawline after a few months. Then I went on birth control pills and that helped a bit for a while too, but I still got breakouts around m
  8. After taking tetracyline when I was 16 for a period of 6 months. I have realised thats when all the problems started happening - Sensitive skin, dull skin, hair loss, poor healing acne, digestion problems etc. Is there any way I can restore my health back to what it used to be? Here is what I currently do - Cardio. Take zinc, multivit, fish oil and folic acid.. Drink lots water. Eat healthily. Thanks
  9. Hey all, I have decided to supplement my diet with these vitamins to help improve skin, but i'm concerned (after reading something online) that I will have to give up my shredded wheat. Apparently due to too much folic acid intake ? Hope that isn't true. Especially as the shredded wheat is my main source of wholegrain.
  10. Indulge http://www.enzymestuff.com/methylation.htm In relation to http://www.diagnose-me.com/cond/C447056.html Also in relation to the thread started as far as most acne sufferers being underweight & being a hard gainer.... I know this isnt the first thread as far as Histamine goes in correlation to acne on here but its a VERY in depth site that outlines the process well explaining the pathways etc. on top of the fact that its been a while since this has been discussed & I think
  11. For about 2 years I have been taking "Nicodime" which has 2 B vitamins "Folic Acid and Niacinamide and two minerals "copper and Zinc". Is it safe to take "Fish Oil" capsules also?? Which contains Omega 3. It seems that Im not getting the results I want to with just the "Nicodime". Thanks
  12. So I stumbled upon this thread. http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=539087 Then I looked up some reviews on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Frutels-4-Pack-Vitam...e/dp/B000GHHULO Seems very promising.

  13. I've read a lot of positive reviews of Nicomide, the vitamin supplement of nicotinamide, copper, zinc oxide and folic acid. Are there any users out there and what are your thoughts? Right now I take Minocycline 100mgs 2x a day, but I know I can't take it forever and wondering what my options might be after. Thank you.

  15. Hello everyone, I am currently trying the B5 regimen. Im on my 5 day and up to taking 10g a day. Im not quite sure if the Bcomplex im using is the right one. Here is the listed ingredients: B1 25mg B2 25mg B3 25mg B5 100mg B3 (Niacinamide) 100mg Pantethine 25mg B6 (Pyridoxine HCL) 25mg B6 (Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate) 10mg B12 100mcg Folic Acid 400mcg Biotin 300mcg PABA (Para-Aminobenzoic Acid) 30mg Choline Bitartrate 50mg Inositol 50mg I heard that you your B-complex must supplement the amount o
  16. For those interested, yes there is a genetic component to developing acne, in that certain people will be more "at risk", but there has yet to be specific acne gene. Just like there probably isn't a specific coughing gene, sneezing gene, when we get sick, right? Another example would be the small pox or chicken pox that's presented as skin lesions that were a direct result of a virus. Therefore, all of these are just signs of something wrong, imbalanced, or attacking our body and this is how
  17. I have a plan to attack my acne on all levels internally. It involves a lot of pills daily tho : 20 x B5 (10g) 1 x omega-3 fish oils ( 1000mg fish oils) 1x cod liver oil (550mg) 2 x zinc (15mg each, 30mg total) 1 or 2? x evening primrose oil (1000mg) 1 x b-complex (inc brewers yeast and folic acid) 2 x garlic extract tablets (10mg - equivalent to 1000mg of fresh garlic bulb) To those in the know, would any of the above supplements conflict with each other? Or perhaps are too low in dosage. Ive
  18. We just ate some asparagus from our garden – yes, fresh picked and steamed and immediately eaten – YUM – so, I decided to look up more about it. Here’s something we can ALL agree on – asparagus should be part of our diets for acne and overall health. Benefits of Asparagus Asparagus is an excellent food to improve and maintain overall health. It is fat-free and low-calorie and can be eaten on even the strictest of diets. Asparagus contains many of the nutrie
  19. 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.
  20. I'm trying to cut down on the amount of carbs I'm eating in a last-ditch attempt to cure myself of this horrible affliction. Does anybody know if bran flakes would count as something 'high carb'? I love eating them as a healthy snack, as a replacement for all the chocolate and crap I cut out of my diet ages ago, but don't know if they could still aggravate my acne if classed as high carb. I know they're good for you, as reading the box here I can see it's got, listed under 'Vitamins and Mine

  23. there's a great new product out there that i want to recommend to everyone out there. it's called nicomide and it's a vitamin that has zinc, folic acid, and some other ingredients that help stop acne especially inflammatory acne from forming. it's good because it's not a medicine so it doesn't stop working like antibiotics do after you use it for awhile. i've been using it in conjunction with the regimen and my face has been completely clear for months. please ask your derm about this i hope

  25. I couldnt find B-5 supplements so instead I bought B-100 complex O-o whats the difference between B-5,B-6B-12, and all that. Another question I also have stress B-complex and I was thinking of taking both types twice a day. would that do harm?
