    Sluggish Bowels related to Acne

    I have very sluggish bowels. I seem to have a bowel movement every 3/5 days a week. i have had this problem for years and im thinking this may be linked to my acne, the fact that i have a poor digestion system. Is there anyone out there who have the same problem? Most people i know expel waste 1-2 times daily and they have clear skin!!

    That is very true. When I do a cleanse, and I am having regular bowel movements, my skin is much clearer. I take a blood cleansing herbal supplement everyday that has cascara sagrada in it. It helps tremendously. Toxins get released in the bloodstream with backed up bowel movements.

    thats good it works for you. I have heard that burdock root is really good in cleasing the system. Must try it.

    Black eyes: ACNE Can definately be related to digestion - BIG TIME. I am only eating things which are easy to digest like soups etc. When I used to eat big sandwiches and spicy foods, my acne was at its worst. Maybe you should take a mild laxative for your bowel movements and do an internal cleanse once in a while. Just eat a lot of grapes they are great for internal cleansing and you will need to go to the bathroom if you eat a lot of them!!

    hey black_eyes,

    couldn't agree more... hey have you tried bran cereal by chance? (I haven't, wondering if it would be beneficial in regulating)

    Re: Sluggish Bowels related to Acne

    thanx guys for all ur replies and support but i have tried everything!!! i have tried prune juice, eat lots of fruit and vegetables, cut down completely on pasta, rice and switched to wholemeal bread! i only take a laxative when i REALLY need too...dont want to develop a dependency on it. plus i have tried a cleasning 'fruit' diet. sigh.

    its been 4 days since i have had a bowel movement and im on my last week of accutane. at the moment i feel bloated, discomfort and been giving out alot of gas. i was on taking flaxseed before i went on accutane, and i had a bowel movement once or twice a day (never in my entire life have i had a daily bowel movemnt <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> ) anyway my dermatologist advised me to stop taking flaxseed while on accutane as it contains vitamin a. i have just started taking burdock root and i was told by a herbalist that its really good for the skin. im also going to take flaxseed again, after i complete accutane. I HAVE HAD IT UP TO HERE WITH MY BOWELS!!!!!!! SOOOOOOO SH*T!! SIGH LOL
