Sweetish Bitters for Acne?
i've had acne for 28 years, since the day puberty set in. for several years i've had Gerd/acid reflux.
recently i started taking 'sweetish bitters'. very recently - just a week now. it is supposed to be a natural herbal remedy (it has quite a history if you do an internet search) for indigestion.
now, it is waaaay too early to say it is definitely working, but at just the slightest hope i find myself getting excited that this could be clearing up my skin as well. it certainly makes sense, if you think of it, that acne can be the result of digestive problems. my skin right now is not perfectly clear but nearly so, which is highly unusual and i cannot attribute it to anything else.
i did a search and it looks like nobody has mentioned 'bitters' here for quite some time, so i thought i would re-introduce it and see if anyone else here has tried it for their acne.
(and it seems to be helping with my reflux as well)
***********UPDATE*********: it is August 7th and i've been on the sweetish bitters over 6 weeks. the improvement in my skin has been constant. i have not been free and clear of all acne, but i'm having days in a row where i have no zits whatsoever and when i do get acne, it is one or two, much smaller, and they go away faster. the sweetish bitters is definitely helping. i'm really amazed. i was put on it for my digestion/acid reflux, which it has greatly helped. i had not expected my skin to be affected. just FYI
