Using aloe vera for acne is a trick my grandmother taught me. She always kept a few potted aloe Vera plants around her house, and for good reason…
Aloe vera is not only great for treating acne, it can treat burns, help wounds heal faster, protect skin from the sun, and much more. It’s actually been used as an herbal medicine since the first century A.D!
Its leaves contain a thick clear pulp which can be applied topically or taken as a dietary supplement.
Acne No More is a unique step-by-step guide on how to get rid of acne holistically. “Holistic” treatments focus on treating the whole body, instead of only treating the symptoms of acne – like the pimples, bacteria, inflammation, clogged pores and irritation.
The author, Mike Walden, suffered from acne for 13 years. He was one of those acne victims who tried everything, but nothing worked. So, he spent 4 years and thousands of dollars researching and developing a step-by-step method for treating acne.
The goal of his system is to treat acne from the inside out, giving you lasting clear skin. If you only treat the visible symptoms of acne (pimples, redness, etc.), you aren’t really treating the underlying cause.
You may see results from using typical acne treatments (like creams, or antibiotics), but because you aren’t treating the cause, it’s likely that your acne “symptoms” will return.
Traditional acupuncture involves a holistic approach to health and well-being. Ancient acupuncture philosophy states that when illness strikes, there is an imbalance occurring within the body, and this imbalance is what causes the illness.
Acupuncture for acne in traditional Chinese medicine or TCM considers a variety of factors, including the emotional, physical and environmental conditions of an individual and how these factors contribute to the health of the skin. According to TCM, acne is usually caused by excessive dampness and heat affecting organs along specific “channels”. The three organs responsible for acne are the spleen, stomach and lungs.
Each organ has to perform a specific task and is connected to the channel that flows from the internal surface of the skin and connects with a specific organ. Therefore, acne can occur when there is a dysfunction occurring within one of these organs, in addition to its positioning on a specific channel.
