But those hormones are also required for other purposes, such as the efficient metabolism of food.
    I guess you are right. Unfortunately, I'm the one who does all the research on this subject. Then I have to convince her to try it. It's so much easier to take a pill. And, I don't suppose you can do the cleanse while taking an antibiotic?

    Re: Digestive System Cleanse to Eliminate Acne

    Senoflys. I'm happy with DrNatura's program. I have been a partial vegetarian for 10 years and really didn't have a problem with constipation. But, I figured I would try it and see if it helped my acne. Well, I am so glad that I did! At first my bowel movements just smelled really bad. Later, it started looking like it had a lot of different colors in it and the shape of it was strange. It is like it is the shape of my colon when it comes out! And I go a lot more than I did before. I was going 2-3 times a day before. Now I go anywhere from 2-5 times a day and it is a lot more on each occasion. On the third week I started seeing "things" in my stool that looked like undigested pine nuts. Sorry to be so gross, but you asked! There is no way that I ate that many pine nuts without chewing them. God only knows what those things are!
    As for my skin. Well, if I would have wrote this yesturday, I would have said that I haven't had one new pimple in a week. (I've been doing this for 3 weeks total, so no break outs after 2 weeks). However, last night I woke up with 2 new pimples. 1 small one and 1 that is a bump on my jawline. I also started doing a special diet for getting rid of candida, so i think some toxins are being released. I plan on doing the cleanse for at least 2 months.

    Sun?
    You ought to shield your face from the UV radiation. Be it winter, autumn - sun does much damage to your skin.

    Maybe you touch your face? Or maybe it's the dirt or anything else from your hair?

    As for me, after a week I do see improvements, but today was full of sins...
    Chocolate bar, white pasta, white bread...
    I love my retinoid+zinc cream.

    Technicolor may have a point about your forehead acne, soupyhead. I always used to exacerbate my forehead acne by letting my fringe - which was gelled to the max - touch it. Certain "beauty" products can definitely do more harm than good where acne is concerned.

    My general advice is not to dwell on the forehead acne. I think it's just taking a longer time to break the breakout cycle. Forehead acne has always been the most persistent type for me, and it has left the most visible scars. It's just stubborn.

    I think it's because the skin on the forehead is less fleshy than the cheeks, the chin, and even the nose, so the acne tends to be more painful. And as a result you end up touching it more, and then cross-infection occurs. So try your best not to think about it. I know it's really hard

    Re: Digestive System Cleanse to Eliminate Acne

    Could someone aside from EV who have used this regimen post their stories here.

    How long have you been using it?
    What kind of acne did you have before starting this?
    What is the current state of your acne?

    Thanks.

    *bump*

    2 grams of Psyllium a day seems quite low. I've read from some various websites that the recommended daily intake is at least 10 grams. I'm planning on buying the powdered version of psyllium because 1 tbps = 5 grams of psyllium. If I take it twice a day, I would have at least 10 grams of psyllium daily.

    If I do this, how much activated charcoal should I take?

    Yeah, I take 2 tablespoons of psyllium husk in the powdered version, not capsules.

    Re: Digestive System Cleanse to Eliminate Acne

    I took Psyllium and Activated Charcoal for 10 weeks and drank 1 yakult everyday, but I noticed I started getting hives on my arms, which I have worked out is the yakult. So I am going to get a good strain of Acidopholus and that should solve my hive issue, I havn't drank a yakult for 3 days now and I havn't any hives. Acne is clearing up though, but the allergic reaction to the diary in yakult could of been a slight hinderence on my progress. EV please could you tell me what you think.

    Re: Digestive System Cleanse to Eliminate Acne

    So 70 pages of responses, and not one person besides EV has tried this regimen and has shown dramatic improvement? Question EV, I assume this regimen was created solely by you? Did you get ideas for certain supplements from any sources? Could you tell us those sources? How did you pinpoint the exact mg you were supposed to take (or did you adjust from week to week).

    Re: Digestive System Cleanse to Eliminate Acne

    Anonymous: What parts of your face did you get the most recurring acne? What type of acne was it (cysts, papules, etc.)

    I'm wondering because some say the location of your acne determines what part of your digestive system is messed up.

    Re: Digestive System Cleanse to Eliminate Acne

    AznHisoka If you have read the whole 70 pages of this thread you would know that EV is not the only one who has tried this regimen, I have been trying it for the last 10 weeks and I have seen great improvement in my skin and my digestion, I'm not 100% clear, but EV does say that it takes time. I have severe Acne since I was 16, I would say its moderate now, I mostly get it on my legs and back, but since drinking Yakult everyday I have a couple of spots on my neck, which I never got before, they are small and dissapearing fast. I also eat mostly fruit and vegetables, and drink 1-2 litres of water per day.

    PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THREAD BEFORE APPLYING THAT THIS REGIMEN ONLY WORKED FOR EV.
