  1. Sheep Blood Agar Plates: This medium is both differential and enriched medium and used for the isolation, cultivation and detection of hemolytic activity of fastidious microorganisms like Streptococci, and Pneumococci.
  2. this is my attempt to explain a lack of uniformity in experiances or wide range of opinions about different treatments or changes in diet or topical usage in regards to their benefits or detriments to someone acne condition. i suppose the main theme here would be the concept of synergism, and a general awareness of the complexity of the human body and of life. but here is an example of a what im taking about: someone tries to use zinc for a week or so to see how it affects their acne condi
  3. I won't detail my full acne history here and save that for another thread. I started using myo-Inositol from a health food store, and my skin cleared quickly and dramatically. It cleared on my back, my face, and my chest, even most of my blackheads were gone. At the time I was using many other supplements, I was exercising and adhering to my personal acne diet (no soy, low sugar, emphasize vegetables, etc) so I was unsure of how much Inositol really contributed to the improvement. One by one
  4. My doctor recently prescribed me with Accutane to help deal with mild acne that appears on the sides of my jaw, after noticing that Tactupump wasn't able to get rid of the aforementioned acne. I was informed of the side effects of Accutane, and depression was mentioned (though my doctor said it wasn't common). Feeling a bit anxious of a drug that could possibly affect my brain, I did a bit of research into the cognitive side effects of Accutane and ended up with conflicted results. A forum
  5. Hi, I'm doing a HUGE research on how Acne effects us at a emotional level and personal level. I'd be very grateful if you could answer any of these following questions, as it would help me uncover some secrets about the underlying causes of Acne. I'd gladly share all that I discover with those that help me with below questions. What keeps you awake at night, eyes open, staring at the ceiling? What are you afraid of?
  6. Overview Over the last few days I have compiled a lot of research surrounding the relationships between metabolic states, hormone imbalances, and acne. I am very excited to share these discoveries which are in fact very logical and simple yet often overlooked. If you have been suffering with acne and have tried everything such as adopting a remarkably “clean” diet, different facial cleansers, anti-biotics and so on, then your acne is probably attributed to a hormonal imbalance in which case re
  7. This article from WebMD (below) says that echinacea was found to change the composition of gut bacteria. It does not say whether this change was for better or worse and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this. About a week ago I started drinking echinacea tea 3-5 times a day (box says to drink that much when you are "sick" lol). Everything was good but yesterday my body cleared out like I took a laxative. I'm taking a break because that wasn't the effect I was going for. I
  8. Dear friends, It's been 5 years I haven't logged in to this forum. I am now 25, I still have some acne, but I can say it is under control and not impacting my social life anymore. Like many others on this forum I achieved it by experimenting on myself. I have also tried several drug products, but I have found all my solutions in the holistic approach: mostly with food, sleep, sport, psyche. I believe in the holistic approach, I believe it is underrated in the medical community, It lacks
  9. Hey guys and gals, I notice so many supplements and vitamins being thrown around here and there to help with acne, and I always want to learn more. Problem is, there are so many websites out there that just want to sell you these things without providing clinical evidence or side effects. I don't remember how I found it, but examine.com is a great free resource that I want to share with this community because I think knowledge is power. According to their own description: "Examin
