  • BBC on acne and see the Herbal, Diet and Vitamim sections of treatment here (maybe try just one or at most two at a time to see what maybe works?) ["Beware of toxic medications (Accutane) What is Accutane? Accutane is the brand name for isotretinoin, a drug prescribed for acne which is rapidly being exposed as a public health threat. According to the manufacturer, "Isotretinoin is a retinoid, which ?inhibits sebaceous gland function and keratinization. The exact mechanism of action of isotretinoin is unknown.? Accutane usage has been linked to severe psychological disorders and even suicide. Although accounts vary, 'More than 200 people have taken their lives while taking Accutane?(cited here) of course this same site doesn't just say that too much soy is bad but claims soy is EEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIL with title "the toxicity of soy".. though that SAME page links to John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America article called "ARE SOYFOODS A BLESSING OR A CURSE?" and maybe did not READ what he says at the end of his article, "Becoming soy-a-holics and automatically downing anything made from soybeans is not the road to health, but neither is shunning and stigmatizing soyfoods. The anti-soy crusade has needlessly frightened many away from a food source that has long been a boon to humankind"]Acne.org message board.

  • this site recommends Zinc with Copper (50 mg zinc and 5 mg copper per day) ; Acidophilus capsules (1 capsule twice/day) with meals says about cleansing that It is important to maintain an acid environment in the skin. Do not wash the skin with soap, which is too alkaline and debrides the acid mantle of the skin. Instead, use a facial brush and hot water. Do not use products that contain alcohol" it recommends a Lemon juice wash "Wash with hot water and a facial brush or washcloth. Squeeze a fresh lemon into a small bowl and put the juice on a cotton ball. Apply cotton ball to face. Repeat soaking of cotton ball in lemon juice as needed. Let lemon juice dry on face for about 10 minutes then rinse with cool water. The lemon juice should make your face sting or mildly burn. For sensitive skin, dilute juice with filtered water." then "Once the skin is regenerating (after two weeks using gentle, natural treatments) you may want to add a stronger facial exfoliant. Many cosmetic manufacturers produce Glycolic acid formulas (15 percent strength). Avoid products that contain heavy moisturizing ingredients and alcohol. Glycolic acid helps loosen or break up the outer layer of the skin and prevents excessive build-up of dead skin cells. " and MAYBE then vitamin A (Which has side effects) and finally Tea tree oil has been shown to remove and stop the growth of bacteria on the skin. An Australian study showed that a 5 percent tea tree oil gel was as effective as 5 percent benzoyl peroxide. Tea tree oil is the only essential oil (except for lavender) that can be applied directly to the skin with no carrier oil. Like other antimicrobials, tea tree oil should be used in a consistent daily regimen to prevent infections. Benzoyl peroxide reduces bacteria on the skin and helps to peel the superficial layer of cells

  • Work with animals suggests that emotional deprivation in early life causes heightened stress responses as adult animals. It's highly likely this is the case for people too. Re-setting the stress thermostat in childhood is an important adaptation -- it equips a child born into a difficult world to be constantly on the alert. But this alertness comes with a long term price: heart disease, diabetes, obesity and depression...."It is the elimination of other causes of death such as infectious disease which is responsible for bringing lifestyle diseases to the fore - and these are exquisitely sensitive to stress."
