Hi Adam. Yeah, the EFA's definitely help. They smooth out my skin and don't cause break outs. The primrose gives it a healthier, fresher look. If I ingest hydronated oils, I immediately get cysts.
I also take all the vitamins he recommended - i.e. Vit E, C, B, Beta Corotene, Selenium, Chromium, etc. etc. I also drink a class of lemon water in the morning (half a lemon in water) and take 2 Aphidophilus capsules with that and a slice of ginger. Sometimes I deviate a bit, but as long as I stay away from hydronated oils and ESPECIALLY Sugar - none at all - then I'm fine. I also found exercise works in purging the surface blockage. The cysts are caused by internal hormonal factors that are directly affected by my food intake. I don't eat meat or dairy and don't drink anything but water. I wish I could have chocolate, but I'd rather have clear skin. I have scarring from before, so I have to go to the aethetician and get peels, microdermabrasion, etc. But I am happy the acne is subsiding.
I will eventually do the liver purge over winter break from school, so when I finish that, I'll post.
: So you haven't done the organ cleansing yet,
: but what did you do that helped? The EFA stuff?
: That's what I was thinkin about tryin' first,
: but just tell me what helped ya so far..
: : It's working for me, although I haven't done the official liver purge and colon cleaning. I used Leo's e-book, probably the same one to which you're referring.
: : I have cystic acne and nothing else has ever worked. Topicals and antibiotics wrecked havoc on my face.
: : -Bleee
: : : Yes yes, in the never-ending pursuit for
: : : a clear face, I came across a 103 page e-book
: : : from a website that set me back about $20,
: : : and as I was reading it I couldn't help wonder
: : : about some of the things I was reading. The
: : : basis of the "cure" is as follows:
: : : If the internal systems of the body are in
: : : perfect working order, a person will cease to
: : : have acne. The book then goes through and
: : : one by one, describes a procedure to "cleanse
: : : and re-build" each organ of the body that
: : : is "causing" the acne I see. Doesn't sound
: : : so far-fetched, right? I didn't think so. But
: : : as I read through the procedures, they just
: : : seemed a little harsh, such as the "liver
: : : purge" which involves starving one's self for
: : : a day and consuming large amounts of epsom
: : : salts, oils and grapefruit juice. There's also
: : : all types of other "cleansing" processes, such
: : : as for the colon and the intestines and so on.
: : : But, as I'm sure you all would know as well as
: : : I, we're all willing and desparate to try new
: : : things, but I just wanted to know if anyone
: : : knew anything about an approach like this..
: : : Thanks..
