Acne is not an illness but the number of people suffering from it is countless. It’s an infection, impurity caused by toxins, and it can be treated with holistic habits and lifestyle changes. If you're like me and prefer an alternative approach over conventional methods, this article can offer invaluable insights. I believe in the mantra 'Respect your body - treat it as temple'.
Acne is typically categorized into two main types: non-inflammatory and inflammatory acne. It is also described as mild, moderate, or severe acne. Non-inflammatory acne is characterized by white and black heads. Inflammatory acne is most of time caused by small infections generally due to acnes bacteria. The most severe form of acne is cystic acne. It is an acute form of acne that has large, inflamed nodules that appears on the surface of the skin.
Let’s dig in & find out How Acne is formed?
Acne is indicative of a lingering presence of streptococcus bacteria in the liver, coupled with compromised gut health. Prioritizing gut health and fortifying the liver are essential strategies for combatting acne. The liver plays a pivotal role in maintaining gut health. Adopting a holistic lifestyle requires patience but promises enduring outcomes. Before acne's visible signs appear, streptococcus establishes a prolonged presence, thriving on undesirable substances within the system. It gradually infiltrates the subcutaneous fat, bolstering its presence. Eventually, it reaches the deepest dermal layer. The immune system launches a vigorous defense against streptococcus, amassing sebum oil as a protective barrier. However, as streptococcus strengthens, sebum oil's defense weakens. At this stage, the skin's immune response intensifies, leading to increased sebum production to counter this adversary.
In cases where streptococcus is exceptionally robust, it can overpower sebum oil, resulting in inflamed or cystic acne. While mild acne may resolve swiftly, moderate to severe cases can significantly impact one's confidence and skin health. Although antibiotics offer temporary relief, they inadvertently strain the liver. Streptococcus thrives on toxins, heavy metals, pesticides, antibiotics, and more.
In response to acne flare-ups, some turn to alternative medicine, opting to eliminate gluten and dairy products under the belief that it helps. Through research, it becomes apparent that gluten and dairy themselves are not the root causes of acne; rather, it's streptococcus that thrives on these substances.
Things one can rely on:
Do not let streptococcus gang up against your self-defense your own immune system. Holistic living, clean eating habits, using clean products, gut friendly food will go a long way. Strengthening your lymphatic system is a great favor to yourself. Let the vitamins, minerals from fruits, vegetables, herbs start the healing for you.
A complete game changer for your liver is Celery juice. If your liver is happy and thriving, you will, and your skin will too. Nettle tea has great benefits both for your gut and liver. When it comes to gut health L-Glutamine daily on empty stomach works phenomenal for the health of your skin, Probiotics works wonders again for your gut, Zinc, Plant based Collagen powder, Vitamin C, and Omega 3’s are the big guns in helping you getting relief from your suffering (acne) health of your skin. I always suggest checking with your doctor first as I am not a doctor, not a health practitioner. I just like to research deep, find answers to why and spread the word.
