Recommended Food

· Simple basic unprocessed foods.

· Dark green or orange vegetables are especially helpful for their carotenoids, which help maintain and repair skin.

· Nuts, seeds, such as almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds, are good sources of skin-healthy Vitamin E and essential fatty acids.

· Quality protein sources are beans, peas, lentils, eggs, and fresh cold-water fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring and sardines. The latter are rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

· Meat products should be hormone- and antibiotic-free and limited.

· Drink a glass of clean, quality water every two waking hours to flush toxins out of the body and to maintain good general health.

· If you must use topical or oral antibiotics for acne, be sure to eat some live, unsweetened yogurt every day. Antibiotics destroy the “friendly” bacteria in your digestive tract, which are necessary for good health, and yogurt will replace them.

Foods to Avoid

· Eliminate junk and processed food, such as refined grains, colas, and candy. These products are a large source of toxins in the average diet.

· Sugar encourages oil production and provides food for bacteria and yeast. Also, avoid artificial sugar substitutes like saccharine or aspartame.

· Saturated and hydrogenated fats are particularly difficult to digest, and they worsen acne. Stay away from fried foods and solid fats, such as margarine, lard, and vegetable shortening.

· Avoid alcohol, chocolate and limit meat products because an acidic internal environment encourages acne.

· Coffee and other caffeinated products may aggravate skin conditions. Drink herbal tea instead.

· Iodine may trigger acne. Dairy products and kelp products contain iodine.

Prescription for Natural Cures
by James F. Balch and Mark Stengler

Super Prescription # 1
Vitex – LifeSource Product - Take 160 mg of a standardized Vitex extract (chasteberry). Vitex is an excellent hormone balancer to reduce acne. Use this super supplement for at least six weeks. If you see improvement, continue with the same dosage as long as it remains effective. Women should not use if on birth control or pregnant.

Super Prescription # 2 Essential Fatty Acids – LifeSource Products - Take 1 to 2 tablespoons of flaxseed oil or 3 to 5 grams of fish oil daily. It may take four to eight weeks for improvements to be noticed.

Super Prescription # 3 Zinc – LifeSource Product - Take 50 mg twice daily with meals for three months, and then reduce the dosage to 50 mg once daily for long-term supplementation.

Super Prescription # 4 Burdock root – LifeSource Product with Burdock root is ESIAK - Take 300 to 500 mg of the capsule form, 30 drops of tincture or 1 cup of tea three times a day. Take for a minimum of eight weeks.

Super Prescription # 5 Tea Tree Oil – LifeSource Product - Apply a solution by dabbing it onto blemishes twice daily. A 5% solution of tea tree oil in diluted water acts similarly to benzoyl peroxide but without the drying side effects. Since tea tree oil is quite potent, test the solution on a small area of your skin first.

Super Prescription # 6 Gugulipid - Gugulipid has been shown in research to reduce acne, particularly cystic acne. Take and extract containing 25 mg of guggulsterones, an active compound, twice daily.

Super Prescription # 7 Vitamin A – LifeSource Product - Take 5,000 IU to 10,000 IU or higher daily, under the guidance of a doctor. Research has shown that doses of 100,000 IU or higher are effective but require a doctor’s supervision. The problem with Vitamin A is that high dosages are needed to be effective for acne and these may cause side effects. A way around this problem is to use a lower dosage, along with other nutrients that work synergistically for skin health, such as selenium, Vitamin E and zinc. Women who may be pregnant or trying to conceive should not use more than 5,000 IU daily.
