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.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), is essential for humans and other animals. It’s water soluble, meaning if we get more vitamin C than we need one day, it’s expelled from the body in our urine.
Therefore, it’s important to get vitamin C every day, because we don’t store it in our bodies like some other vitamins.
Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) is a naturally occurring mineral that has a plethora of medicinal uses. It can be used to treat ankle sprains, cleanse the body of toxins and even elevate serotonin levels in the brain, which are directly correlated with mood and well-being.
We know smoking can give us cancer, and a million other bad things, but does smoking cause acne? Well, unfortunately the answer doesn’t seam to be a straight yes or no.
Some studies have found a link between smoking and acne, while others have not. All I know is that I don’t think there is any way smoking could help your acne, so why not let this be one more good reason to quit smoking.
A 2006 study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology interviewed over 27,000 young men over a span of 20 years and came to a very surprising conclusion. Active smokers had a much lower prevalence of severe acne than nonsmokers.
